Gratitude, and Musings

Thoughts

Love Talk - Quest Journal, July 24, 2018

In a training I received years ago from Tom Cowan, a Celtic Shaman, I learned the language of Love Talk. While on the hill this past summer, I practiced this magical form of writing which encourages presence and gratitude.

~~~

Beautiful the fern glowing in the morning sun.

Beautiful too the presence of gentle peace.

~~~

Beautiful the snail snuggled in the moss.

Beautiful too the spiral of life on its shell.

~~~

Beautiful the morning forest.

Beautiful too the Quester under the tree.

~~~

Beautiful the woman with striking blue eyes.

Beautiful too the love we shared.

~~~

Beautiful the boy becoming a man.

Beautiful too his love for his Granner.

~~~

Beautiful the gentle woman, healer, friend.

Beautiful too her sweet soul and open heart.

~~~

Beautiful the one who loves dogs and children.

Beautiful too her kind soul and gentle spirit.

~~~

Beautiful the woman who embodies Isis.

Beautiful too her gentle footsteps on the earth.

~~~

Beautiful the songs sung so sweet and powerful.

Beautiful too those who sing with hearts open.

~~~

Beautiful the splendid, quiet morning.

Beautiful too the promise of a new day.

~~~

After filling a page with Love Talk, I found myself naturally changing the form to a kind of Gratitude Talk… I found out later that it was the topic for the teaching in Support Camp that day!!

~~~

Grateful for this opportunity to listen.

Appreciation too for the breathtaking beauty of the forest.

~~~

Grateful for those who are eating, drinking, and praying for me.

Appreciation too for the Fire that listens, transmutes, and delivers.

~~~

Grateful for my open, receiving heart.

Appreciation too for my blessed, sacred breath.

~~~

Grateful for the Ravens who came loudly to celebrate my release this morning.

Appreciation too for the freedom I feel and the protection they bring.

~~~

Grateful for the warmth of the sun on my face.

Appreciation too for the shade and the breeze.

~~~

Grateful to Sioux for the gift of this hochka.

Appreciation too for my Supporter’s loving care in setting the walls and altar.

~~~

Grateful for the presence of the Faeries.

Appreciation too for their songs and humor.
