Moving Towards Autumn

If you have a question in your heart, the oaks will answer you in the falling of their leaves.
–Corine Pearce

Tonight as I drove through the last gate entering our ranch, I stopped the car by the lake. Two herbal classes ago I wrote my wishes for healing of my body on an oak gall. I’ve had the oak gall in my bag for two months now. I’ve been meaning to throw it into our lake, and finally tonight I remembered.  I asked the lake and the plants that surround me to aid in my healing, and I promised in return to help in protecting them.

Next month begins 31 days of writing again. After last year I thought I would never do that again! And I don’t think I’ll participate with other bloggers at the 31 day writing challenge, but I do think I’ll challenge myself to a daily post next month. So I apologize in advance if you’d rather not receive a daily message in your inbox from me, just hit delete. As for the topic, I think I’ll share more about what I’ve been learning in my herbal class over these past eight months.

Message From the Hopi Elders

There is a river flowing now very fast. It is so great and swift, that there are those who will be afraid. They will try to hold on to the shore. They will feel they are being torn apart and will suffer greatly. Know the river has its destination. The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open, and our heads above the water. And I say, see who is there with you and celebrate.

At this time in history, we are to take nothing personal. Least of all, ourselves.

For the moment we do, our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt.
The time of the lone wolf is over. Gather yourselves.

Banish the word “struggle” from your attitude and your vocabulary.

All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.

We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.
