…for our innermost soul we know
ourselves to be one with all beings
soul tending, like the journey of life & meaning, requires a nurturing of aliveness, a quickening in the softly falling silver dust of stars…….
Our entire culture suffers from what the shamans call “soul loss,” a loss of meaning, direction, vitality, mission, purpose, identity, and genuine connection; a deep unhappiness that most of us have come to consider as simply ordinary. The soul is our source of absolute uniqueness, a place within that connects you not only to your own value and essence, but to the value and essence of every other living being. What makes soul loss so subtle and dangerous is that very few people have realized that it has happened. Most of us do not know that we have disconnected from our soul and have come to accept as normal a numbness and lack of meaning in our lives.
What if I fell still enough to hear the tides
The ones that rise and fall me
The ones that deeply inform me
The ones that guide and nourish me
That teach me who I am
When I let myself soften enough
To be carried inside
Carried and watered by the nature that lives me
