When you think about it, it is always the smallest of things, hidden, often in plain sight, often in unprepossessing or insignificant form, that hold the keys to the Mysteries.
A single seed floating on the wind, an acorn held within its chalice… acres and seasons of flowers, generations of forests, all encapsulated in the dun coat of apparent mediocrity.
Is that not why this life is such a good teacher?
Ganesh has been coming up a lot lately. As a remover of obstacles and god of new beginnings, his presence is most welcome under the circumstances.
Perhaps post-war man should have got to know him better, and especially his symbolic mouse.
It is the overcoming of desire that frees us from the eternal round, they say. But how much does that lose in translation? In English we overcome a foe… we seldom think to erase enmity by embracing it and accepting it for what it is. We have to fight our way out of conflicts we ourselves create, when a little loving acceptance would have the same effect with no stress.
Tell the daft animal that acts must be got together. I shall be home in the wag of a tail, one hopes….
… and this ‘new normal’ I was kicking against will have to be embraced.
Although this will be one of our own designing.
I may also be bringing home a fair selection of soapboxes…
The daft dog can hide in one if necessary.
Much love, always, Wen x
Joining Don & Wen
Stuart France & Sue Vincent
Don and Wen, two friends living hundreds of miles apart embark, all unwittingly, upon a quest through the ancient and sacred landscape of Albion…
The two share a passion for these prehistoric sites, seeing that their potential has not been erased by time, making them as vital and relevant in today’s society as they always were.
Through Don and Wen’s correspondence, learn how to read the clues hiding within the landscape and in the symbols of faith left by our forefathers in the mediaeval churches, stone circles and ancient monuments.
This is the second book in the series, ‘Finding Don and Wen’, but can stand alone. The book may act as a guide to show the reader how to engage with the land in a meaningful way… and how that engagement opens you wide to life in all its glory.
