O’ Great Spirit

help me always

to speak the truth quietly,

to listen with an open mind

when others speak

and to remember the peace

that may be found in silence.

………Cherokee Prayer

 

I love coyotes. Perhaps it is their inquisitiveness most of all that I adore. I walk with my dogs every day in the Guadalupe Oak Grove wildlife preserve. My day is perfect when I have a coyote sighting and especially perfect when they follow me on the walk. These coyotes are quite small compared to the Mountain coyotes, but coyotes they are indeed. Makes me feel like I am running with wolves. Being with wild animals invokes the Cherokee prayer above. The wild things teach me stillness They take me to the depths inside myself where stillness abides. I am rejuvenated with great love. So, you see, coyote is truly my sensei, my teacher when we gaze into each other’s eyes.

We had our first big snow this year. About 7 am I looked out my kitchen window and I saw a lone coyote walking about my property. She was a beauty….full coat and a bit of meat on her bones….ravishing. She looked over her shoulder at me. I don’t believe that she could actually see me but I love these connections.

Live strong as the mountains
Be gentle as the spring winds
Keep the warmth of summer in your heart
And the Great Spirit will always be with you.’

Story would have it that Coyote sang human into existence. Regardless, they are venerable animals who are much misjudged. They have always survived and multiplied as is witnessed by their straying into neighborhood garbage cans and capturing small pets. I have great respect for coyote and look forward to seeing him running down the street or gathering below my deck to taunt my dogs. Keep your animals close though because coyote will seize any opportunity. He may be teaching you to adapt to changing circumstances in you life. Remember, he is the trickster teacher so don’t dismiss him without examining your life through his eyes.

The coyotes were out this morning far down in the forest singing their wild song. It is always distressing a bit because I equate the song with a fresh kill. There are different views as to what their arias mean, but due to many pet losses here on the mountain we all think of death. Yama is close. I used to worry about my cat when I heard the coyotes but they either got him or he wandered into a new home. He was like that……moving from house to house. He dropped in one day as a free cat and I let him have his freedom all the while knowing that he might have a short life. He was good at the game too. My dogs were barking and I made sure to keep them close on our walk. The dogs have no understanding of being captured by a large pack of coyotes. They do hate coyotes and love a good chase. A few weeks ago a lone coyote was beneath my deck looking up at my dogs. He was broadcasting his scent and the dogs went wild. Shri coyote knows where Buddha and Maus live and he is not afraid of them or me. It is so exciting to be around the yotes and a little dangerous.
