The Cycle and the Circle... Flows

“Everything the Power of the World does is done in a circle. The sky is round, and I have heard that the earth is round like a ball and so are all the stars. The wind, in its greatest power, whirls. Birds make their nests in circles, for theirs is the same religion as ours. The sun comes forth and goes down again in a circle. The moon does the same, and both are round. Even the seasons form a great circle in their changing and always come back where they were. The life of a man is a circle from childhood to childhood, and so it is in everything where power moves.”

~ Black Elk

Each day, I wake up feeling grateful.

Each day, I am a seeker - living to learn, adapt my perspective to new understandings, and share what might be of value to anyone else who might be aware of the Circle. The Circle has no dogma, ideology, religion, or political religion.

The Circle simply is.

"I am that I am."

Each day, I endeavor to be Kind and Loving and Brave. Sometimes I fail, and I try again.

Each day, I acknowledge my human frailty - my fears, my feelings of aloneness, my failings, my lack of understanding. I forgive myself and keep trying to grow in wisdom and inner-strength.

Each day, I wonder... "What is my Purpose in the world - with a capital 'P'" I sit in silence and solitude - in Nature and within my own human nature, and I listen for what the Universe is teaching me about my place in the Circle.

Each day, I am aware of my finite biological mortality and wonder if my feelings of infinite spiritual immortality are real or just a comforting story I tell myself. I am not afraid of being dead and gone forever. I was dead for billions of years before my birthday and it did not bother me a bit. I don't believe my life is significant except for what good I might do while here. But I love life, and want to stick around for a while. I have so much more to learn and share - I hope.

Each day, I fall asleep feeling grateful.
