I don't believe I've seen a lie in this entire forum...peace and happy hunting brother
Wow. Well said......
I find this description fits so many things in my life: Pools of work that in the end reflect who I am: what i believe in, where I want to go, how I make sense of what life is all about, and .....what I want to leave behind. Including those in seed form (both plant and human). The philosophical concept of the seed is a worthwhile concept to ponder everynow and then. Especially in a culture where short-time gain/immediate gratification rules.
Fight the good fight is right. Spiritual warriors need the quest and the tools to fight it.
Been here lurking, reading, learning, laughing, and finding that there are others out there that feel/think in ways that are so familiar. A tribe of kindreds. Honey? I'm home.
For me, I'm just starting on my medicine quest with the all-mighty flower. Suffice it to say the often-mentioned desired effect list mirrors my own. Clarity, calming, social, energizing,and above all vision clearing/enhancing. (The better to see where to plant those "seeds".) Bland potency? Not for me and my purpose. Anesthesia? 'nuff of that all around (TV, fast food, belongings to fill the loneliness, movies to distract us from reality, etc. etc. etc...
So, ....thanks to you all: starting with DJ's Flo, outdoors, and hoping to reach the rest of the tribe's skill in creating an arrow for myself and others to wield in the fight.
I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain
(with my pipe!)
'Nuff said. Will post my efforts soon.....
