The Muse…

 

One must give himself completely

 
To his art and not hold back.

 
Throw caution to the

 
Wind.

 
Embrace the muse.

Journey…

 

 

Maybe the journey isn’t so much about becoming anything. Maybe it’s

about un-becoming everything that isn’t 

really you, so you can be who you were

meant to be in the

first place.

~ ` ~ Paulo  Coelho

Gift…

 

One of the more difficult paradoxes to accept

 
is that this abundance of gifts is always quietly 

 
present and it is we who drift in 

 
and out of seeing it…

Older wisdom…

 

Since we are the youngest children of creation,
our accumulated wisdom is young, too, and so I 
search outside of the tiny and fragile box of 
humankind’s insight and understanding for the
older wisdom, the more ancient and enduring
healing.

               …I have documented the rich insights and mercies
brought to my life by my animal kin…I write about


the empowerment of meaningful and healing
relationships.
Many of mine are with animals and nature.

Breathe in…

 

 

Breathe in with the deep awareness that you are a 

human being.

Then breathe out and touch the earth,

a non-man element, as your mother.

Visualize the streams of water beneath the Earth’s

surface.

 

 

 

 

 

 

SRI_6386-L

 

 

See the minerals .See our Mother Earth, the Mother of

us all.

Then bring your arms up and breathe in again, touching the

trees, flowers, fruits, birds, squirrels, air and sky– the

non-elements.

 

 

JAN_5146-L

 

 

When your head is touching the air, the sun, the moon,

the galaxies, the cosmos–non-man elements that have

come together in order to make man possible–you see

that all of the elements are coming into you to make your

being possible.

 

 

 

SRI_6397-L

 

 

Breathing in again, stretch your arms and be aware that you also penetrate other 

elements.

 

 

 

 

JAN_5142-L

 

 

Man helps make the other elements possible.

 

( Words : Thich Nhat Hanh  )

 


Wildness…

 

 

The journey is into the wildness of your greater life.
The wilderness is your soul.
To merge with your destiny, you must locate,
liberate and live what is truly wild.
The soul is here to live its joy.


The uninitiated ego is here to keep things familiar,
safe and predictable.


Which path will you choose?

 

                                  ~ ` ~ Bill Plotkin

Art…

 

Art is both love and friendship and

 understanding:

the desire to give.

 

_pop0731-bw

 

 

It is not charity, which is the giving

of things.

 

_pop0737-bw

 

It is more than kindness, which is

the giving of self.

 

 

jan_8600

 

 

It is both taking and giving of beauty, the turning

out to the light of the inner folds of the awareness

of the spirit.

 

 

 

jan_8771

 

 

 

It is the recreation on another plane of

 the realities of the world;

The tragic and wonderful realities of earth

and men…

Heart Wanders…

 

 

 Clouds heap upon clouds & it

heart wanders wailing with the
restless mind.
