A friend sent me Grace Cooke’s (White Eagle) words–
“Flowers do not force their way with great strife.
Flowers open to perfection slowly in the sun.
Don’t be in a hurry about spiritual matters.
Go step by step, and be very sure.”
In the spirit of Spring I invited flower wisdom into the Online Dance Chapel. This chapel is a mysterious place where we hold sacred the Wisdom of the Body to move, voice, share stories, and honor each other’s bodyspirit in these times.
At best I see myself as a little flower in a garden of flowers. Such relief and joy to soak in life in simplicity and goodness. Invoking the spirit of pansy, hyacinth, rose, black eyed susan, sunflower, plum blossom something tender grew. Our flora became our intimates.
Ruth Showalter writes beautifully about what happened in the dance chapel and invites us into an 11 day online Spring Creativity Challenge. Get a peak into her own flower images.
What flower essences are in you? What flower memories nurture your perfect blooming?
Prayers of thanks to Great Mystery for flowers, seemingly needless, briefly lived bursts of beauty. Such medicine! Whatever season, day or night, in love we bloom.
