Neniis-otoyou’u

Mountains of my Heart

Mountains of My Heart

Long before the white settlers decided to name them Long’s and Meeker after 2 white politicians, the native Arapaho had already named them “Neniis-otoyou’u” which translates: there are two mountains.  

I simply call them my two guides. I fell under their spell many years ago when I first visited the Rockies.  And they have been quietly offering me their wisdom ever since.

Get still and listen. The Earth has much to share with you.

The Mother of All Things

Yin Yang Illuminated
There is something
that contains everything.
Before heaven and earth
it is.
Oh, it is still, unbodied,
all on its own, unchanging, 
all-pervading,
ever-moving
So it can act as the mother
of all things…
~Lao Tzu
