Harmony for 2018
The Wind is My Mother by the Native American Bear Heart was first published in 1998 but its essence is even more relevant now than ever before. Bear Heart is a Muskogee Creek Indian and Medicine Man who through the pages shares his teachings, wisdom and the ways of the Shaman with eloquent simplicity. Bear Heart demonstrates how traditional tribal wisdom can help us maintain spiritual and physical health and harmony in today's world.
To me, this simple quote encapsulates the key messages from the book and it's the age-old traditions like Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and native shamanic teachings that best bring this ethos to life today.
"The way to attain beauty in life is through harmony. Be in harmony with all things, but most important, be in harmony with yourself first. A lot will go on in your life, some good, some bad...but one word, harmony, will neutralize any problems and help your life to become beautiful.”
