It's strange at times how the same words spoken last week have such different meanings today. I'm not sure what we could say this week that has not been said in weeks past. Have you ever wondered what could possibly be said that has not been said before by so many? The Cherokee have a wonderful saying, "Listen, or your tongue will make you deaf."  But they also say I love you, I admire you, I want to more about YOU, and I admire your courage. That is the ultimate amount for one day isn't it? But again, it cannot compare to tomorrow... Tomorrow has its own jar needing to be filled. Likened to a jar of marbles, we can only hold so much at a time before we overflow; and if we are not careful our jars can be emptied by ourself or taken by others very quickly. Learning to control the ebb and flow of energy, or marbles in our jar takes mindfulness, takes learning balance, mind-body-spirit connection if you will.
As the seasons change, time moves swiftly like the fox, the need to be loved; to be admired, to be validated never changes. It helps us to grow, to heal and to maintain balance in our mind-body-spirit and it helps us to keep our jars filled with give/take. It also helps us to appreciate the finer things in life; the four-leggeds, the winged ones, the water beings, the connections of all things great and small., knowing that our time together is linked in beauty. Creating memories to sustain us in times of change, times of great struggle, times of pain, loss, grief, growth and healing.
"O, Listen! Hear! Sing with me, For I am joy. I am at Peace!" (Cherokee Song)
Walk In Beauty!
