Heads Up

There’s a lot of beauty up there and some of it can’t been seen but our ancestors are routing for us. “Be still,” they say. “Watch and listen. You are the result of the love of thousands.” -Linda Hogan

We didn’t land here by accident. An austere lineage winding back through every phase of history, pre-human forms to early mammals, and beyond. “Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of life’s longing for itself.” – Kahlil Gibran

And now we find ourselves, the only humans alive, surrounded by the only living trees, fungus, birds, animals and insects. We are what gives life its value. Our actions affect not only our species but so many others. And our beloved Earth is not dying but shifting. She will be just fine, in fact better without our meddling. We on the other hand cannot survive how we currently operate in it. Now is the time to find ‘life’s longing for itself,’ deep in our bones. Manifesting new ways of living harmoniously together will be ‘the result of the love of thousands.’

We trade moments of our lives, hour by hour, day by day, year after year for declarations…’be still’ they say. How will we long for life? We can’t survive the acceptance of what they will for us. Stand up and walk like you have 3,000 ancestors behind you.
