I’m keeping it short again this week because I know you’re all really busy.
I was chatting to someone recently who told me they had spent years searching outside everywhere for the answers to their problems. We discussed the benefits of meditation and the exercise of focussing on the breath in and around the nostrils for 5 minutes every day. We agreed it is a good way of quietening the mind and gaining an occasional glimpse of inner wisdom. It put me in mind of an old Indian Sioux story and thought I would share it with you…
The Creator gathered all of creation and said “I want to hide something from the humans until they are ready for it. It is the realisation that they create their own reality”
The eagle said “Give it to me I will take it to the moon” The creator said “No, one day they will go there and find it.” The salmon said “I will hide it on the bottom of the ocean.” “No, they will go there too.” The buffalo said “I will bury it on the great plains ” The creator said “They will cut into the skin of the earth and find it even there.” The Grandmother Mole who lives in the breast of Mother Earth and who has no physical eyes but sees with spiritual eyes said “Put it inside them. “ The Creator said “It is done.”
