"The beauty of the trees
the softness of the air,
the fragrance of the grass,
speaks to me.
The summit of the mountain,
the thunder of the sky,
speaks to me.
The faintness of the stars,
the trail of the sun,
the strength of fire,
& the life that never goes away,
they speak to me,
& *my heart soars."
~Chief Dan George~
Shimmering gracefully about us at every moment,
gentle possibility, fragile opportunity.
Butterflies have been fluttering about me lately. i never usually see them. But there they are. When im driving through the city, or landing on branches as i walk by. Native American Indians believe that animals bring messages.
"The butterfly is the symbol of freedom & creativity. It holds the gift of transformation & soul evolution.. . It is a symbol of joy, & reminds us not to take life too seriously.. . They feed on flowers & help pollenate, thereby spreading beauty.. .When one antennae is missing it flies in circles, unable to find its way.. .They represent the element of air, quickly changing & ever moving, so gracefully."
What animal has crossed your path lately?
The impossible is not found in the ordinary. It comes from our footsteps of faith. It is born of miraculous courage. It is the extraordinary & the sublime. It is the fulfilment of our efforts.
Today i journey with stars in my pocket.
