The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness.
=:= John Muir =:=
Within us lives a wilderness
a sacred fire
that fire is our spirit
spirit never dies
it may be reduced to embers but never extinguished
this is how our ancestors have kept alive the sacred teachings
the wildcrafts & the wise ways
may we feed that fire in a good way as we find our way back
to a life connected fully to the web of nature
recognizing fully that we are indeed strands in the web but not the web itself
may we give birth to new ways : our children & ourselves with full awareness
remembering that all that challenges us are ~ rights of passage and rightfully ours
may we honour them for the gifts they carry……..
