"The wind blows hard among the pines
Toward the beginning
Of an endless past.
Listen: you've heard everything."

“We are like the spider. We weave our life and then move along in it. We are like the dreamer who dreams and then lives in the dream. This is true for the entire universe.” ~ Upanishads

As we express our gratitude,
we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words,
but to live by them.

The life of an Indian is like the wings of the air.

That is why you notice the hawk knows how to get his prey. The Indian is like that.

The hawk swoops down on its prey, so does the Indian.

In his lament he is like an animal. For instance, the coyote is sly, so is the Indian.

The eagle is the same.

That is why the Indian is always feathered up, he is a relative to the wings of the air.

The truth about life and lie about life is not measured by others,
but by your intuition,
which never lies.

Inside each seed there is an unseen potential, a big strong
tree is metaphorically inside this tiny seed~
though there be no visible evidence and patience is needed, it is within, ready to grow tall and strong as it is nurtured


The only way to get that big tree out is to make sure that the seed is planted, watered, exposed to sunlight and with ample time the seed will begin to sprout and grow

The same can be said for our own healing..
Just as with the seed , Inside of us there is unlimited potential for healing, growth & change. Sometimes we may lose sight or belief in ourselves , however, If we want to tap into our full potential we will need to be in the right environment, reflecting nature; Surrounded by the right people, nourished mentally, physically & spiritually. Over time our true potential will be unleashed~ You will grow strong once more, You will branch out and your life will bear fruits.

There comes a day, somewhere in the middle of every person's life, when Mother Nature herself stands behind us and wraps her arms around our shoulders, whispering
“It’s time.”
“You have taken enough now. It’s time to stop growing up, stop growing older and start growing wiser and wilder.

There are adventures still waiting on you and this time, you will enjoy them with the vision of wisdom and the companionship of hindsight, and you will really let go.

It’s time to stop the madness of comparison and the ridicule of schedule and
conformity and start experiencing the joys that a life, free of containment and guilt, can bring.”

She will shake your shoulders gently and remind you that you’ve done your bit. You’ve given too much, cared too much, you’ve suffered too much.

You’ve bought the book, as it were, and worn the t-shirt.

Worse, you’ve worn the chains and carried the weight of a burden far too heavy for your shoulders.

“It’s time” she will say.

“Let it go, really let it go and feel the freedom of the fresh, clean spaces within you. Fill them with discovery, love and laughter. Fill yourself so full you will no longer fear what is ahead and instead you will greet each day with the excitement of a child.”

She will remind you that if you choose to stop caring what other people think of you and instead care what you think of you, you will experience a new era of your life you never dreamed possible.

‘It’s time’ she will say…

“to write the ending, or new beginning, of your own story.”
