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

wee mousey

A harvest mouse.  So tiny….the size of a dandelion going to seed. They are found in Europe and Great Britain and they are endangered.

‘Healing may not be so much about getting better, as about letting go of everything that isn’t you…..all of the expectations all of the beliefs….and becoming who you are.”

And forget not 

that the Earth delights

to feel your bare feet

and the winds long 

to play with your hair

…….Kahlil Gibran

When I was a child I had two pet rabbits. Their hutch was kept in the garage during the winter. One snowy morning I looked out a window in the front of our house and saw my miniature dachshund Hannah running down the street along side one of my rabbits holding onto one of his ears with her mouth. She had rescued the rabbit from the perils of escape we shortly found the second rabbit on a neighbor’s back porch stoop. Catastrophe averted. There were no leash laws nor animal permits many years ago. Also house and car doors were not locked. I was permitted from a very early age to spend the day alone in the woods. I wish that I could give that experience of peace and joy to my grandchildren. Sadly children today must be protected from the possibility of dangerous adults.

When you run after your thoughts, you are like a dog chasing a stick: every time a stick is thrown, you run after it. Instead, be like a lion who, rather than chasing after the stick, turns to face the thrower. One only throws a stick at a lion once.…………Milarepa
