Do not try to save the whole world or do anything grandiose. Instead, create a clearing in the dense forest of your life and wait there patiently, until the song that is your life falls into your own cupped hands and you recognize and greet it. Only then will you know how to give yourself to this world so worthy of rescue. – Martha Postlewaite, Clearing
You know I walk my talk. I don’t teach things that I don’t do. I don’t call for depths that I’m unwilling to experience.
So today was a rough day for me. Feeling all the things. So I did what I tell all of you to do: I found the light.
For me, today, that was out in the woods. Tree hugging, waterfall chasing, and a few tears. It was good to breathe and release and hope and pray and hand over the things I don’t understand. To give myself over to nature and the universe and give up the desire to control what I cannot.
I felt better afterwards.
This time is teaching us, in an unprecedented way, about the necessity of self-care — of Soul Care. Listen to your intuition and longings and give your human self and your Soul what they need.
