Bringing it home to the village

Image

And what good are the fruits of travel

If you do not bring them home

To your village.

To the people and the environment

that previously fed your soul.

Adulthood, what does this mean?

Never lose a young heart

Touch a hot stove,

In different ways.

Never stop loving

Be wild, Be free, Be home.

Be fearful,

And be fearless.

Howl like a coyote in the South,

Let the waters of the West take you away,

 In the North, lead others in the currents,

and then fly to the East like an eagle.

 Become an elder.

Serve others from your learning’s,

And do not dwell.

Continue the motion

In body,  heart,  and mind.

Whatever your practice,

Practice.
