There
is a

Native American parable

about an ELDER who says:

 “I feel as if I have

two wolves

fighting

in my heart.

X

One wolf is the

vengeful, angry one.

The other wolf is the

loving, compassionate one.”

X

X

 When asked which wolf

will win the fight in his heart,

the ELDER replies: 

“The one I feed.”

Life energy FLOWS through us like a swift stream
when there is nothing to obstruct it.

X

X

X

Though the channels
THROUGH which this energy FLOWS
are OPEN systems
and
influenced by factors
OUTSIDE
of our control,
one ultimately
chooses what impact
these  factors
will have in one’s lives.

X
X
X

It is up to one to identify
and
CLEAR blockages in the energy field
to ensure that FLOW is maintained.

X

X

X

Life energy FLOWS through each of  us
like a swift stream
when there is nothing to obstruct it.

X
X
X

Yet,
various forces such as
trauma;
the spiraling downbeat vibrations of others;
deceit and betrayal
and
unresolved grief of
past heart-breaks, irreversible losses and terrible disappointments
can and/or will
act like pebbles to stones to boulders
to mountains to earthquakes
that
impede/ BLOCK
the flow+ current.

X

X

X

If one allows/chooses

obstructions

to accumulate
without conscious clearing,
one’s life energy is thrown off its course
or
cataclysmically blocked entirely,
causing illness;
emotional/spiritual/psychological duress + distress
restlessness,
and
will,
ultimately,

STEAL

the vitality
of one’s

sacred/LUMINOUS life FORCE.

X
X
X

If one values the

sacred unrepeatable jewel

of one’s life,
  one will take the time to clear
these forces away
and
seize their power to impact
one’s lives.

X
X
X

When I practice:

RADICAL HOPE;

living my intrinsic values,
my ART of LIVING,
with honor and respect
for myself and others;
breath meditations – tending to my mind and body;

MOVING FORWARD

with FAITH + fearless improvisational creation/creativity;
RUN/PLAY with my selected + cherished DEARS /DEERS
and
fiercely shield myself
from negativity/bitterness/dishonesty/toxic energy,
I preserve my  

WILDERNESS/INTEGRITY/AUTHENTICITY

and

the JOYOUS flowing OCEANIC FIELD

of 

GRACE ENERGY’S

 LOVE/sacred LIGHT/BEAUTY

within
me.

X

X

X

I

WELCOME

call and response

relationships
that

HONOR + RESPECT

who I am
and
they have the capacity to state: 

“I SEE YOU!”

X

X

 Those same cherished beloveds

KNOW

that my response is:

“I SEE YOU!”
