To be fully human is to be wild. Wild is the strange pull and whispering wisdom. It’s the gentle nudge and forceful ache. It is your truth, passed down from the ancients, and the very stream of life in your blood. Wild is the soul where passion and creativity reside, and the quickening of your heart. Wild is what is real, and wild is your home. Tonight, I throw my advice to the wind to reach those who feel painfully restless and forgetful of spirit. Our souls are naturally filled with great vitality and ageless knowing, that flow through as freely until they get blocked by modern living. Right now, I urge you to unravel the listless, rigid parts, and feed your wild, because it is the wild you, not the barely alive, embedded-in-routine, zombie-like you that is now struggling for air. Restore the wild and the warrior. Let’s go there. To the primal place you can reach in everyday life. ~Victoria Erickson
what is restless and stirring as the winter calls? what is needing to be expressed? what is needing to be quiet?
We are all as much extraordinary phenomena of nature as trees, clouds, the patterns in running water, the flickering of fire, the arrangement of the stars, and form of a galaxy. ~Alan Watts
The way to maintain one’s connection to the wild is to ask yourself what it is that you want. This is the sorting of the seed from the dirt. One of the most important discriminations we can make in this matter is the difference between things that beckon to us and things that call from our souls. ~Clarissa Pinkola Estes
