Dearest ones, I ask that you reconnect with the natural world, the stones, rivers, and trees, the grasses and insects of your home, the animals, the soil, the atmosphere.
Grandmother Cottonwood, dappled shade
Allow yourself to quiet and breathe and simply be with the world, the earth as it is.
Know yourself in the flow of a river, know yourself in the shifting dappled shade of summertime, know yourself in the rough gnarled bark of an aged tree. Know yourself in the purple thistles and down that drifts in the breeze. Know yourself in the shimmer of my silvery leaves. You are all of these things and everything not named.
My dears if you learn nothing else from me, know this: You are one with all that is and all that is is one with you.
