October 12--Dancing with Life

A sure way to lose happiness, I found, is to want it at the expense of everything else.  --Bette Davis

    We humans are doing an extraordinarily bad job of seeking happiness at the expense of our Mother Earth, damaging her in epic proportions. It definitely will wreck our happiness if we destroy our home planet. 
    Let's consider living in harmony with creation. Here are words of Sherri Mitchell, an attorney and activist for environmental protection and human rights:
    Every living thing has its own creation song, its own language, and its own story. In order to live harmoniously with the rest of creation, we must be willing to listen to and respect all of the harmonies that are moving around us...
    We must tune in to our ability to see beyond the physical reality that surrounds us, and awaken to the vast unseen world that exists. Then we can begin to see beyond sight and to hear beyond sound. We see the underlying structures that support our world, and life begins to take on new shape, new meaning. When we live as multisensory beings, we find that we are able to comprehend the language of every living thing. We hear the voices of the trees, and understand the buzzing of the bees. And we come to realize that it is the interwoven substance of these floating rhythms that holds us in delicate balance with all life. Then, our life and our place in creation begins to make sense in a whole new way. Our vision expands to see the overall order of our path, and our hearing tunes in to a whole new source of information... When we merge our internal rhythms with the rhythms of creation, we develop grace in our movement, and without thought or effort we are able to slide into the perfectly choreographed dance of life.
    Let's dance!
