Get out there.
Get out there.
“Ceremonies large and small have the power to focus attention to a way of living awake in the world. The visible became invisible, merging with the soil. It may have been a secondhand ceremony, but even through my confusion I recognized that the earth drank it up as if it were right. The land knows you, even when you are lost.
… That, I think, is the power of ceremony: it marries the mundane to the sacred. The water turns to wine, the coffee to a prayer. The material and the spiritual mingle like grounds mingled with humus, transformed like steam rising from a mug into the morning mist. What else can you offer the earth, which has everything? What else can you give but something of yourself? A homemade ceremony, a ceremony that makes a home.”
~Robin Wall Kimmerer,
We can reconnect and remember.
And the act of offering thanks to Mama Earth and Papa Sky for this life changes everything.
Don’t dismiss the elements. Water soothes and heals. Air refreshes and revives. Earth grounds and holds. Fire is a burning reminder of our own will and creative power. Breathe them in. Swallow their spells. There’s a certain sweet comfort in knowing that you belong to them all.’
by Clark Strand
We must begin thinking like a river if we are to leave
a legacy of beauty and life for future generations.
Come forth into the light of things,
Let Nature be your teacher…
…Come forth, and bring with you a heart
That watches and receives.
