Be Watery

High Mountain Waterfall

Water flows through its day

Water meets whatever is in its path

And then it flows on

Water is never stoppable for long

Resistance is met with allowance

And water flows on.

Can I  flow with liquid allowance?

As thoughts and emotions create inner ripples and waves

Can I meet and greet them kindly

And then just flow on

no matter where they take me?

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.
