Happy Independence Day
Independence Day means a lot more than we often think when we consider just how enmeshed we are with our routine constructs. We are faced with opportunities to explore the depth of our commitments to self and others. Being independent is a miraculous way of living. That is how we learn to manifest what we need in life. If I am totally responsible for my environment then there is no one left to blame. Of course often when I interact with others I allow my reality to be influenced by them which may shift my perceptions in the moment. However, I’ve learned to back out of that energy field and reevaluate my experience within the experience so I get to choose my reality within every moment.
The Sun Dance was one of the most spiritual events of my life. The community of people who participated was beyond my largest imaginings. To think that they do so much for us without any idea of repayment. It is an incredible experience to participate and be able to observe the automatic shift in perceptions as the time unfolds from one moment to the next. Living in the moment requires a lot of spontaneity and willingness. I am honored to have been able to be part of such a magnificent process.
