Come with forgiveness and surrender.

The boat I travel in is called Surrender. My two oars are instant forgiveness and gratitude~complete gratitude for the gift of life. I am thankful for the experience of this life, for the opportunity to dance. I get angry, I get mad, but as soon as I remind myself to put my oars in the water, I forgive.

I serve. I do the dance I must. I (paint pictures), but I am not the doer of this work. I am the facilitator, the instrument~I am one part of the symphony. I know there is an overall scheme to this symphony that I can not understand. In some way we are each playing our own part. It is not for me to judge or criticize the life or work of another. All I know is that this is my dance. I would (paint pictures) today even if I knew for certain that the world would end tomorrow.

Balbir Mathur, founder of Trees for Life, from a Heron Dance interview. Quoted from the Heron Dance book of Love and Gratitude.

This is a lovely book and if you do not have your own copy you owe it to yourself to get one and keep it by your side as i do.
