To walk the wide and inner way...
"The great sea has set me in motion-set me adrift-Moving me as the weed moves in a river...The arch of the sky and mightiness of storms have moved the spirit within me-Till I am carried away ...trembling with joy"Uvavnuk,Iglulik shaman.
"Traveler,your footprints are the path,and nothing else;Traveler,there is no road;you make your path as you go."I feel that who I am is the sum total of every person,place ,thing that I have ever experienced.The most important thing for me is to "wake up"-not sleep walk through life-"the door is open- don't go back to sleep"-Rumi
