The Wisdom of Wave and Stone

“If there is any wisdom running through my life now,
in my walking on this earth,

it came from listening in the Great Silence
to the stones, trees, space, the wild animals,
to the pulse of all life as my heartbeat.”

~Vijali Hamilton

Cathartic Full Moon

The waves] move across a faint horizon, the rush of love and the surge of grief, the respite of peace and then fear again, the heart that beats and then lies still, the rise and fall and rise and fall of all of it, the incoming and the outgoing, the infinite procession of life. And the ocean wraps the earth, a reminder. The mysteries come forward in waves.

Sacred Earth Institute stands with Standing Rock. 

“On one side is the unquestioned assumption that land is merely a warehouse of lifeless materials that have been given to (some of) us by God or conquest, to use without constraint. On this view, human happiness is best served by whatever economy most efficiently transforms water, soils, minerals, wild lives, and human yearning into corporate wealth. And so it is possible to love the bottom line on a quarterly report so fiercely that you will call out the National Guard to protect it.

On the other side of the concrete barriers is a story that is so ancient it seems revolutionary.  On this view, the land is a great and nourishing gift to all beings. The fertile soil, the fresh water, the clear air, the creatures, swift or rooted: they require gratitude and veneration. These gifts are not commodities, like scrap iron and sneakers. The land is sacred, a living breathing entity, for whom we must care, as she cares for us. And so it is possible to love land and water so fiercely you will live in a tent in a North Dakota winter to protect them…”

New Moon in Scorpio,

Transformative Ruler of Deep water and Deeper emotions.

As we head into the dark of winter, take time alone with yourself.

Take time to go Deep within.

Embrace your strengths AND your flaws.

Embrace it all, light and dark, pain and joy, confidence and fear.

Accept and Embrace it All.

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?
