“Silence is the absolute

poise or balance of

body, mind and spirit.”

………Ohiyesa

I discovered deep silence within me when, as a child, I became a solitary woods walker. I would disappear for the entire day into the woods so that I could live in Nature’s peace. Never was I disappointed. Stillness surrounded me and nourished my being. Sitting by the creek my mind disappeared into the song of the flowing stream. Having access to the stillness of Nature soothed my emotional pain. Today Nature is still my go to  portal into the peace of the soul. I encourage anyone who has not experienced the forest as a healing tool to open to it. Travel there alone and with no devices and just breathe. Let your mind rest and feel the relief. Love and light, g

This is how I would die

into the love

I have for you:

as pieces of cloud

dissolve in sunlight

…..rumi

Rumi…the master poet….the describer of that deep love which arrives when we give up our self. My favorite poet.

When your world moves too fast

and you lose yourself in the chaos,

introduce yourself

to each color of the sunset. 

Reacquaint yourself with the earth

beneath your feet.

Thank the air that surrounds you

with every breath you take.

Find yourself

in appreciation life.

This jack rabbit looks like my granddog “Maggie.” It’s just a feeling…a mood that I always seen in Maggie. Unspoken guilt and desire mixed together. Maybe I was channeling Maggie….LOL I am doing doggie daycare for Maggie since her mom went to work at the pottery studio. I’m not much fun but I do talk to her, give her fresh marrow bones and love on her a lot. So…..she is much more in my radar since I have been spending so much time with her. Dogs rock. They absorb your energy but don’t judge ever.

Blood to bone, bone to marrow

When the soft winds blow

I can hear the trees whispering.

Their leaves rustling

as they share their thoughts

with the universe.

They talk about the sun, the sky,

the people that roam the earth.

They say we are all one.

You can choose what to focus on, and therefore what to be. You can choose to be your in-breath and out-breath. You can choose to listen with your whole being to the sound of the rain or the wind, and in some way to be one with the rain or the wind. Listening to sounds in this way can be very joyful. When you are in touch with these refreshing and healing elements, you are being, and not thinking.

Wakan Tanka,

Great Mystery

 

Teach me how to trust my heart,

my mind,

my intuition,

my inner knowing,

the senses of my body

the blessings of my spirit.

 

Teach me to trust these things

so that I may enter my Sacred Space

and Love beyond my fear

and thus Walk in Balance

with the passing of each glorious Sun.

We are Earth people on

a spiritual journey to

the stars. Our quest,

our Earth walk, is to

look within, to know

who we are, to see

that we are connected

to all things, that

there is no separation,

only in the mind.

……..Lakota seer

 

I have been fascinated by the Cheeta ever since I saw the film “Ashes in the Snow.” I periodically rewatch this film on YouTube because its beauty is mesmerizing. It takes you to another dimension…..the place that you are always seeking. A place of no separation. Gregory Colbert is the artist. Animals and humans interact in his art piece. No separation. If you are interested, urls are below….They seem to work????

We spend most of our time and energy in a kind of horizontal thinking. We move along the surface of things … but there are times when we stop. We sit still. We lose ourselves in a pile of leaves or its memory. We listen and breezes from a whole other world begin to whisper……… James Carroll

Grandfather says: When you feel powerless that’s because you stopped listening to your own heart…..that’s where the power comes from.
