I’m convinced of this: Good done anywhere is good done everywhere. For a change, start by speaking to people rather than walking by them like they’re stones that don’t matter. As long as you’re breathing, it’s never too late to do some good. Maya Angelou
Who will tell whether one happy moment of love or the joy of breathing or walking on a bright morning and smelling the fresh air, is not worth all the suffering and effort which life implies. Erich
Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing. Arundhati Roy
Just as I started to write this today, a young disabled veteran said on GMA,” Choosing to walk over the mountain in front of us, instead of around it, that’s happiness.” Tears flowed down my face. This last week, breathing almost seemed impossible. With our nation’s chaos, and personal chaos with my mother having a setback, the probably of breathing was at an all time low. Rushing to her side, I thought of my faith, my belief that all things happen for a reason, how do I want to present myself as I walk this harsh path, I just stop for a minute. Breathing is the answer. As we stop to take long deep breaths, our heart rate slows down, oxygen reaches the blood, the brain so we can clear our head, think more clearly. Although still whispers of the dark trying to bring fear, even a bit of anger as to why this suffering must continue, yes even get worse, as we stand still, allowing the Father Sol the Sun to beat down on our head, the cool fall crisp air to blow in our face, we know this, too, will pass. This test, this task, will end, but the way we handle the path, will last on. Each person who comes on the path, will remember our actions, our words, our ways. So We breath, we quiet, we gentle the tongue, slow the pace, until the fire burns out.
Animal totems: Cougar: Sister cougar lies partially hidden in the brush or the rocks. Almost as still as a statute, she waits, watching before she makes her actions. Except her tail twitches. The anticipation, the itchiness to move trembles in her until it reaches the end of her tail. Her totem reminds us to think, watch, quiet ourselves, edit, re-edit, then take our actions toward our dreams. Her medicine is one of hope for wise decisions, then impulsive moves.
