Simple, Wild Wisdom

 

I believe in a

simple, wild wisdom.

 

Go to a place

where there are

no clocks or

mirrors. There is one

inside you.

 

Listen to the

rustling of your heart

beating wings of

generations. Launch into

this “now” you’ve heard tell of.

It is not chronological.

It is all-consuming

experience.

 

Now is

breath and

warmth

in your veins

for this day

you are

alive.

 

Your path is not

future. It is this

step. It is

following the

urging of what

you have always

known. Shhh,

listen.

 

The quiet inside

is singing.

“The doors to the world of the wild Self…” ~Clarissa Pinkola Estes

“Durdle Door” Nigel Chadwick, 2008. (CC A-S A 2.0)

“The doors to the world of the wild Self are few but precious. If you have a deep scar, that is a door, if you have an old, old story, that is a door. If you love the sky and the water so much you almost cannot bear it, that is a door. If you yearn for a deeper life, a full life, a sane life, that is a door.”
-Clarissa Pinkola Estes
