Release all resentments that you may have felt towards others in your life, and pray that these people be directed in life to their most benevolent outcome.
In this week that follows, plan a light schedule and fill your time laughing, relaxing in nature. In the second week, evaluate how you feel. It will amaze you, because after all these years of self-healing, psychotherapy, or whatever you've done to relieve your human condition, you'll want people to pinch you to make sure you're not imaging how quickly you have relaxed emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually. You're will is stronger and your body has experienced rapid regeneration.
Close your eyes, and take a deep breath through your nose. Take it in. Relax your stomach muscles as soon as you have inhaled. Picture flow, a journey of refreshment. Repeat this 3x.
Three weeks… a wonderful marker of time.
If you are convinced that you have no time, that everything brought to you is yours to attend to, those thoughts will often manifest as illness, depression, fear and anger. The cycle of resistence becomes resentment. When we cannot relax, we become malignant. This is a fallacious pattern that was founded to kill hope. Think about it. Life is about quality time, not quantity time.
Being: Idle, Play, Experience
Relax. This is the ultimate goal of the east. If we are not taking time to be idle, play and experience, we are existing. Being is the conscious act of living joyful. – from the spiraldancing life workbook, first penseh
If you begin to analyze thoroughly any or all of our refined spirituality and earth connections (for we are all of common nobility as Children of Earth), you will find yourself on the Edge of Reality. And if you were to use this understanding to rouseyourself to love and to stand in your truth, the gift of your being, and such a supernatural being (as time examining your life can reveal), think where you will be. At first you might thing, I am; and I feel. But I do not know who I am. But after reviewing what instances you have grown beyond, go one step further and embrace that you are a hero in psychological evoltuion and embrace:
Changing Mother Earth, spirit that I am,
I receive Medicine Power from Changing Mother,
because of Spirit, I am a Child.
They guide me, that is why, they call me to Medicine Circle.
I want to see you, HolyOnes, as I am… I am.
Let me say a word about this, which is an effort to make my thoughts available and intelligible to you, particularly you who are looking for more to life. I have lived in relationship with the Earth from the beginning simply because I feel that to live any other way is to live lifeless.
The possibilities are evident in the voices of the children responding to climate change politics and becoming the Voice of the Future. It is with great intention that they progress life, faithful in their human connection to Changing Mother Earth, in transcendent goodness, and truths revealed, reason gradually returning, gaining the rite to be heard as One Voice.
And no greater love can there be than to come together in vision of the future. For the spirit of humaneness is of great dignity and unites the motivation of all by the healing of life on earth.
There are many ways of being, many ways of seeing – one purpose in this moment. We affirm life, we confirm one another, supporting in sacred, wise, benevolence, that we are in this together. All life as we know it, is born of Earth, so we speak for her. And (this point I stress) the future is not far away, but arrives here tomorrow. Be wise with wisdom beyond what you carried yesterday, your beauty, goodness and truth have been made possible by Earth. And in a sense, Earth is unlike any mother you have known: keep in mind that what you've been taught about her has totally limited how you relate to her.
We come to Changing Mother and she has prepared for us life, nothing is expected but that we live responsibly. Mother listens intently. Now certainly our lives are sacred and important. (Indeed, we are the works of evolving life.)
Look, look,” I insisted. “Look into the flame.”
The young woman shook her head.
“We are nearly ready,” she said. “Wait for us.”
The newer womyn were learning to journey through the heart of a flame. More advanced initiations in circle were using the medicine bowl and crystal under Wolf Star’s instruction. I watched a young woman make a good start at the pulling heart drum ritual, fluttering the beat neatly with her hand. It seemed like such a short while since I had first experienced these things, and my excited control over my patience seemed little short of a miracle. Now these young womyn received instruction in the hat’ii ágoteelî – VisionKeepers’ Way, and ancient society of womyn who practiced group dream rituals to manifest reality in sacred guardianship of Earth.
The young woman completed what she was doing with her contemporaries and returned to where I sat.
“Does it go well, daughter?”
The young woman squatted and shrugged.
“Well enough,” she replied vaguely. Her frustration with the process of learning and experiencing was showing. I remained silent.
