Be The Change!

“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”
-Mahatma Gandhi

I want to see a kinder, more compassionate world. A world where people truly respect, value and care about each other. Where we hold each other up with acts of dignity; where we encourage others to always reach for their highest self. Where people are quick to forgive and are slow to anger and judgment. I envision a world where people really listen to each other and know that they are heard.  This is a place where people go to great lengths to understand each other.
A place of collaboration, free from baseless competition. A world where we look out for each other, make sure we let people know that they matter and always feel that they are loved.
And because I want to see this world, then I must be all these things.
What changes would you like to see?

The Promise Of A Shaman
If you come to me as a victim I will not support you. But I will have the courage to walk with you through the pain that you are suffering. I will put you in the fire, I will undress you, and I will sit you on the earth. I will bathe you with herbs, I will purge you, and you will vomit the rage and the darkness inside you. I'll bang your body with good herbs, and I'll put you to lay in the grass, face up to the sky. Then I will blow your crown to clean the old memories that make you repeat the same behavior. I will blow your forehead to scare away the thoughts that cloud your vision. I will blow your throat to release the knot that won't let you talk. I will blow your heart to scare fear, so that it goes far away where it cannot find you. I will blow your solar plexus to extinguish the fire of the hell you carry inside, and you will know peace. I will blow with fire your belly to burn the attachments, and the love that was not. I will blow away …
