For the Good of ALL Beings

Set Intention
Release baggage

Access wisdom
Visualize form

Invite ethics
Deepen ecology

Converse collaboratively
Examine thoroughly

Ponder gently
Sense shift

In Being FOR the World
WITH the Planet
FROM the Whole

Alternatively, from the comfort of a chair, imagine reading this passage as you Walk with Nature - walk along the path, in the forest, with a walking stick.

Book Review: The Lakota Way

Excerpt: I never tired of the stories, and I would ask to hear my favorites again and again, my version of watching a movie over and over. Those stories were not just of humans, or “two-leggeds,” they were about other kinds of people as well: the elk people, the bear people, the bird people, and so on. And they were about the land. I never heard a story that didn't involve the land in some way. Joseph M. Marshall III, The Lakota Way p.xii

My Amazon Review: As I read the book, I walked in the stories - albeit in my mind's eye.  And, I felt the weather, sat in the homes, and I cried with persons I met. TU Joseph M. Marshall III - I enjoyed the read and learned a lot - and you filled in a few blank spots of history of the plains.

The Lakota Way by Marshall
