ghost of the woods

These big cats are called Puma, Cougar or Mountain Lion. They are solitary animals.  Her power comes as she moves through the world unseen, taking only what she needs, and silently marking territory so conflicts won’t be necessary. She is a ghost of the woods just like your soul is.

 When I lived in the mountains she had her den across the road and down hill a bit. Despite being practically on my doorstep I never, ever saw her. Just paw prints. I use ‘she’ because female seems appropriate.

And…yes….they are facing extinction.

“Your foot touches the earth mindfully, and you arrive firmly in the here and the now. And suddenly you are free – free from all projects, all worries, all expectations. You are fully present, fully alive, & you are touching the earth.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh

The panther’s name is a Lakota greeting meaning ‘I am you….you are me.’ It is said with hands together placed over the heart just like Namaste.

‘You are my other me.
If I do harm to you,
I do harm to myself.
If I love and respect you,
I love and respect myself.’

The goal is to live with godlike composure on the full rush of energy, like Dionysus riding the leopard, without being torn to pieces.

The black panther is very mystical. She is the embodiment of lunar energy…..feminine in all her aspects…..child, virgin, seductress, mother, warrioress, seeress, and old wise woman.
