Fierce Wisdom

“Honor the sacred Honor the Earth, our Mother Honor the Elders Honor all with whom we share the Earth
Four-leggeds Two-leggeds Winged ones Swimmers Crawlers Plant and rock people
Walk in balance and beauty.”
- Lakota Wisdom

I wake this morning knowing without a doubt there is wisdom flowing in the air. As I breathe, I feel wisdom particles filling my lungs, settling in between the spaces of my being. There is a great force at work on the Earth this very moment. It exists in the air I breathe. It is unstoppable.

These wisdom particles hold health, truth and love in my being. I welcome wisdom in my life, in my body and mind, in my very being. Wisdom resides in my tears and laughter. Wisdom sits patiently if I feel fear and if I feel doubt. Wisdom rides in every decision I make and rises to the surface of every illusion I gaze at.

This wisdom permeates every aspect of living on Earth. This wisdom lights the way. I look for the wisdom and find it. This wisdom envelops every struggle, every doubt, every obstinate child, cantankerous adult and those who have lost their way. Wisdom dwells in those suffering and those who are victims. Wisdom resides in every being on Earth.

At times I choose fear and fall into the dismal energy that appears to blanket the Earth. I remember this is a blanket of illusion. I breathe and invite wisdom in and the illusion evaporates. I can choose to believe or deny. Every breath I take invites wisdom. Every morsel of nutrition I eat invites wisdom. Every doubt I entertain invites wisdom.

Worthiness or unworthiness does not exist in wisdom and only serves the fearful mind. Wisdom holds a steady presence in every being on Earth. I choose with gratitude my ability to discern. When I doubt, I always ask, “what would wisdom do?”

As I breathe, I know without a doubt wisdom touches every living being around me. My patience lies in my wisdom. My energy touches every being’s energy much like the trees communicate and support each other. By my breath, this sharing occurs automatically without question. Healing is happening. Wisdom is flowing.

Wisdom sits in the arms of love. There is no greater force more powerful than love.

“Wakan Tanka, Great Mystery, teach me how to trust my heart, my mind, my intuition, my inner knowing, the senses of my body, the blessings of my spirit. Teach me to trust these things so that I may enter my sacred space and love beyond my fear, and thus walk in balance with the passing of each glorious sun.” - Lakota Prayer

Participants’ Reflections:

  • Thank you so much for this reading and sharing on the gift of doubt. As much as it can come from a place of fear, it can come from a place of deep wisdom. And when it comes up, to tap into that place. Thank you for that gift.

  • Thank you. I’m reading a book called Information, and you’ve gone beyond information into wisdom. I am amazed. To see and feel wisdom in everything around me is an incredible concept. I love thinking about that and embracing that idea. So powerful. And you talked about the illusion of fear. It’s so easy to get caught up in the illusion of everything that is happening around us. You remind me to be in this wisdom state and not this illusion of fear state. It’s a good reminder. Thank you.

  • Thank you. Again, it’s wonderful to hear your words. I was happy you repeated the words with deep conviction -- there is wisdom flowing in the air. I can feel and hear that from you. I feel the doubt and fear since I’ve gone back to work. The fear will come. It’s a good mantra to remember that wisdom is in the air. I often say to myself, “what will a grown up do?” Some say “what will Jesus do?” I like the words, “what would wisdom do?” Yesterday, I was tired from work and I wanted to lash out, and I did think to myself, do the opposite. When I do the opposite, I don’t have to behave like that. What would a grown up do? Sometimes I may stamp my feet, but I do have better outcome when I don’t act out. Thank you.

  • Thank you. Wisdom, when you first said ‘there is wisdom flowing in the air,
