Death is the only wise advisor that we have. Whenever you feel, as you always do, that everything is going wrong and you’re about to be annihilated, turn to your death and ask if that is so. Your death will tell you that you’re wrong; that nothing really matters outside its touch. Your death will tell you, ‘I haven’t touched you yet.

Sometimes you have a dream that seems so real and shakes you to your deepest core…
this morning i had one of those dreams – so real – so raw- a dream of the death of a person in my tribe
in those moments of that realization everything meaningless melted away
only the love and purity of that person’s image remained ~ all the good.
i felt so much grief for his parents – his partner – his children
i held his child who spoke to me of ‘daddy gone’
and in this dream many lessons were shared
a deep deep wisdom that indeed death is a wise advisor
in death we reach an ultimate acceptance
i want to take this deeper into my heart and apply this lesson granted in the dreamtime
to those in my waking life
the people in my circle as well as the greater circle
and circumstances in our world today
