“We need the tonic of wildness…At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature.” Henry David Thoreau
“Find meaning. Distinguish melancholy from sadness. Go out for a walk. It doesn’t have to be a romantic walk in the park, spring at its most spectacular moment, flowers and smells and outstanding poetical imagery smoothly transferring you into another world. It doesn’t have to be a walk during which you’ll have multiple life epiphanies and discover meanings no other brain ever managed to encounter. Do not be afraid of spending quality time by yourself. Find meaning or don’t find meaning but “steal” some time and give it freely and exclusively to your own self. Opt for privacy and solitude. That doesn’t make you antisocial or cause you to reject the rest of the world. But you need to breathe. And you need to be.”
~ Albert Camus
“I never found the companion that was so companionable as solitude. We are for the most part more lonely when we go abroad among men than when we stay in our chambers.” ~Henry David Thoreau
“There are days when solitude is a heady wine that intoxicates you with freedom, others when it is a bitter tonic, and still others when it is a poison that makes you beat your head against the wall.”
“In a soulmate we find not company but a completed solitude.” ~Robert Brault

By thee awesome, Mizz Order of the Good Death herself… link below.
Talking about …Celebrating all aspects of Life … Birth, Sustentation, Death, Rebirth, Continuation…WITH NO FEAR!
In our culture we have such fragmentation and distraction, deep-looking escapes many… that yes, we benefit from living deeply and mindfully. Also, our culture lacking mortality awareness, in alot of ways… and lacking death rituals Like: “In Madagascar, where the whole family disinters the corpse, wraps the bones in new cloth, and dances with the bones to live music.”
I know for for me, Drumming & Singing with some of my friends after my Father’s services was very healing, grounding, and enLIGHTening… but I didn’t do this with *everyone* about at the services, as it’s not ‘custom’ nor even *for* everyone due to affinities, personal blockages & fears, cultural programming…etc….But for me… ritual has really assisted upon my grief process…
Order of the Good Death Article, HERE:
Know Thyself, Accept Thyself, Love Thyself.
Something to reflect on for everyday…
With what comes up of your seeds in deep consciousness– Do you tend to those seeds with nurturing acceptance and non-judgment?
When we *LOVE* deeply where we are at … we find flow and a movement so artistic, so beautiful and we see to drop a habit energy of constricting the moment with ‘good’ & ‘bad.’
When I’m raging … *I work consiously to* not to take it out on others nor myself… but let the fires cinge up — infinitely spiral up … *without grasping*
When I’m sad, I move with the oceanic flow of the waters.
When I’m fearful I furl inward and be seemingly more close, to source.
When I’m lonely, I look to the sky, the sun, the clouds, the stars, the ether — I see my ancestors & guides… I am then, still, and know that I am never alone.
