To Find Something, Don't Look For It — by Robin Wall Kimmerer

Post by Welles » Wed May 20, 2020 7:07 pm

A Cheyenne elder of my acquaintance once told me that the best way to find something is not to go looking for it. This is a hard concept for a scientist. But he said to watch out of the corner of your eye, open to possibility, and what you seek will be revealed. The revelation of suddenly seeing what I was blind to only moments before is a sublime experience for me. I can revisit those moments and still feel the surge of expansion. The boundaries between my world and the world of another being get pushed back with sudden clarity an experience both humbling and joyful.

I give that five dancing bananas, Welles.
You know this is the second time tonight this concept has been presented to me. (Third times the charm. ;)
Thank you for posting this lovely message and for all you do from your place on this planet to open our eyes a little wider to love's solutions.
hugs,
