We live through story. Stories we tell with not only our voices, but our thoughts, our actions and reactions, our bodies. They are where we come from, where we are and where we hope to be, fear to be, long to be, dream to be, wonder to be. Our stories are who we are, both in our own hearts and in the hearts of others. How are you telling your stories, past, present and future, to yourself and to the world around you? Are you a victim of circumstance or strengthened by pain? Do you regret the past or cherish it? Is each new experience a blessing or a curse? Do you stop and make yourself remember the moment in all its simple beauty or is the caw of the crow outside just another crow; the light shining through the window pane at once delicate and brilliant just another sunny day? Does your mind worry at the days to come, does it fear retribution, scarcity, sickness, loneliness? Or do you look to the future with hope and wonder no matter the paths you have walked or your current state? Our stories connect us to this earth, to each other, and, therefore, to the divine. There is sanctity in that connection between the physical and the ephemeral and it is accessed through story; sharing story, growing out of and giving reverence to story. Recognize that your story touches and relates to all stories. Your story is my story. Our story is the great, gorgeous story of the universe. Lets tell a beautiful story together with Amethyst, Black Tourmaline, Orthoceras, Shaman Stones, Oyster Shell, Magnetite, Apache Tear and Purple Fluorite.
