"To be an Ojibwe is to sense the movement of nature, to learn from the winds, the waters, and the richness of the earth. Our land was always our teacher and always will be. That is why we cherish it and seek to save it for our children and grandchildren and all generations to come."
My candle burns at both ends It will not last the night; But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends - It gives a lovely light.
Edna St. Vincent Millay, "A Few Figs from Thistles", 1920
The force of love
The practice of metta, uncovering the force of love that can uproot fear, anger, and guilt, begins with befriending ourselves. The foundation of metta practice is to know how to be our own friend. According to the Buddha, You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection. How few of us embrace ourselves in this way! With metta practice we uncover the possibility of truly respecting ourselves. We discover, as Walt Whitman put it, I am larger and better than I thought. I did not think I held so much goodness.
I am a simple country witch that grew up in the city, it is all quntum physics, all is the will and what we WILL I have traveld through so much karma at this point that my darlings like to say "that there is more past to my past than any one they have ever known" (I started young!)I live and breath magic and artistic creation ( my creative force is a lover that will not be denied)http://goddessvessel.blogspot.com/ and hands that heal but then there are less distractions in the country, unless you count feeding the fire all the dark months to warm my home and cook my food and even that is sacred. the summer I gather mushrooms and my yar is so bontiful with fruit I don't pick I harvest I embrace the crone and the effect rippels out from me I am joy see me dance see my spirit fly! I can't spell for shit but it dosen't matter I am still brilliant
