Blood to bone, bone to marrow

Marrow to ashes, ashes to snow’

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.

……Lakota Prayer

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

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

In a moss-draped rain forest in British Columbia, towering red cedars live a thousand years, and black bears are born with white fur. All true. Prevailing thought is that the white fur is a result of a genetic glitch, but the myths of the original peoples are much more interesting. What I tune into is that they are benevolent spirits. I would love to catch sight of one of these special bears. The bears are few in number and live almost exclusively on the islands of British Columbia.

watercolor 3/2017  8 x 10

I am dedicating this painting to honor the healing flute music of Carlos Nakai.  When I was 3 years old a groundbreaking surgery was performed on my left hand and ring finger to remove a bone tumor. The innovative operation was very successful but not much hope was given that I would ever use my ring finger again. I was just so fortunate that the finger was saved. So when I was about 6 years old and I wished to learn to play the flute I was repeatedly discouraged and told that it would be impossible for me to learn because of my stunted and immobile finger. Since I kept pleading  to try, a teacher was found and a silver flute supplied. I practiced and practiced and by the time I was 10 I won a music contest playing the flute that everyone said that I would not be able master. In the learning process my finger had become fully mobile so much so that I was able  play my instrument with excellence. Still, today I have full mobility of my hand and finger. I do believe that this magical instrument was the mystic healer for my body.
