The Elven Way: How to Live With Humans: Growing
May you feel the Elven song within, hear the voice speaking from your heart. We are Tuatha de Danann, the children of Earth and stars together, faeries of a new dimension.
–T.E. Pelton, Elven World mythologies
Blessings; May you feel the Elvensong within, dance to the rhythm of the sun and hear our voices who speak from your heart space. We are Tuatha de Danann, the children of Earth and the heavens.–T.E. Pelton
Without darkness, there is no light.
To see requires darkness to be present. To feel the contrast between darkness and light, is to be alive. When we choose experience, the flood of emotion will undoubtedly come. It is our consciousness that chooses to see that as divinely inspired; as growth, discovery and learning. Then we sing in harmony with Nature’s resonant sound.
When we are hurt by words and actions, when we are hurt by stupidity, cruelty and lack of compassion we are like the tree that has bent her branches down to allow the children to climb her most easily, who then feels the pain of being cut into and abandoned.
It is not possible for her to reach out and stay the hand that will cut her. The only way she could not feel is to be dead.
It is the tree who continues to grow in grace, who repairs her wounds, and who continues to provide shade, that is divine beauty. When you admire her, you are asking for her protection from harm. You are asking for harmony for all living things. You are asking for peace.
It is rarely possible to use the mind to comprehend the pain or even to discover the cause of it and stop it. But we can admire the divinity in it, we can admire the opportunity for life, for feeling itself. And we can anticipate joy. We know that unless the branch does fall, there is no joy in growing anew.
And we can feel admiration for the child who hurt us; knowing in compassion, that his wounds may be deeper than our own.
For those of us living the Elven Way, we know that life brings to us the vision of our own heart expressed in Nature.
The flight of birds, opening of a flower, the rushing stream, the falling leaves, the explosions of fire, birth of a seed and the death of those we hold dear. All of these expressions and many more are speaking to us are guiding us and teaching us. To this, we listen.
Thank you JP for your friendship and soft guidance.
You are the legend. You are divine.
