A year in the desert: burning, burning, burning for the woods.

 

path heart

“Does this path have a heart? All paths are the same, they lead nowhere.  They are paths going through the bush, or into the bush.  In my own life I  could say I have traversed long, long paths, but I am not anywhere.  My benefactor’s question has meaning now.  Does this path have a heart?  If it does, the path is good; if it doesn’t, it is of no use.  Both paths lead nowhere; but one has a heart, the other doesn’t.  One makes for a joyful journey; as long as you follow it, you are one with it.  The other will make you curse your life.  One makes you strong; the other weakens you.”

– don Juan, Yaqui Way

    Hve a lot to share…and it does relate to this post. It sounds like your path is leading into the bush as well..or perhaps to be more exact: into the bushes and trees? Your path definitely has a heart. ❤ But more later – check your mail later!

    PS: better stop burning once you get back to the woods or else you set everything on fire and have nothing but desert left…
