This came to me from the old Shaman I travel with. I think you’ll enjoy it.
Many moons ago lived a young man. He was very wise in the ways of the world. He traveled through out the land in search of his purpose in life. Looking under every rock, in every river, through every wind that blew by him, and even into the sunshine itself he looked but he could not find his purpose in life anywhere.
Finally overcome by his frustration he sat down and spoke directly to God,
“I will not move from this spot until I find my purpose in life” he said.
God spoke back; “you drink the water from the river that runs past to help nourish you do you not?”
“Yes I do” the young man answered.
“You take in the energy from the sun that shines on you to keep you moving do you not?”
“Yes I do.”
“You also breathe deep into your lungs the air around you to stay alive do you not?”
Again came “Yes I do.”
“You eat the food that comes from the earth you stand on to help you live do you not?”
“Yes I do.”
Was all the young man could say. “Can you not then see how all that surrounds you lives to service you? The water, the air, the energy, the earth all exist so that you may exist.
Why then do you not understand that your purpose in life is to return this gift and to service them, as theirs is to service you? Get up go forth and fulfill your purpose in life serve all that serves you.”
I wrote this the day I decided to start H.E.A.L. (Heal Earth and Life) 2005
To my lord and savior
To all my best friends
Who have traveled these roads
Again and Again
I dedicate my passion
To travel within
And there I will stand
Ready to explore
What this life brings
Higher and higher
Our mission it soars
To the stars and to heaven
And back to the Earth
We lay our hands on her
And Heal we do because
If she does not breath
Neither do we.
