“If we lose love and self respect for each other, this is how we finally die.” ~Maya Angelou
In our lives we have many relationships. I want to tell you about my day today. I woke this morning and went to pick up my son at my ex-wife’s house. I called my new wife as she is out of town for business for extended periods of time. After talking to my wife I called Holly, my friend and assistant, to see how her day was going.
Let’s begin with the ex wife meeting. I am a believer that love given comes home again. To say my ex and I have had a very rocky relationship is understating the facts. It ended harshly and with much pain. The damages created to the subconscious mind were tricky to overcome. Trust was taken and continually misused. It wasn’t until I shifted my attachment to the situation that the relationship could alter for the better. Together we have made a magnificent son. It is for this purpose that the relationship must function in a loving way. Still to this day she values my insights and allows me to help guide her through struggles occasionally. I value her good parenting of my son and respect her for that.
Getting to know Spirit through nature isn’t usually a logical process. In fact, one’s sanity can be rightly questioned. This particular morning had me arguing with myself over a bowl of cereal. It was quite early and as I mumbled to myself reasons to not respond the The Pull, I already knew I was losing the battle.
I had been spending a lot of time in the woods. I could sit still for hours in natural settings. The things I saw, the moments of beauty that wrapped around me like the morning mist, brought moments of Oneness with Spirit. I lived for that. The more time I spent in the woods, the more my intuition began to lead me to things. I would find place to sit just inside the tree line and then wait until I’d feel The Pull, a tug, a tightness in the belly. Then there would be clarity and I’d know where to go. Sometimes it happened within minutes. Sometimes I had to sit for a half hour or more.
