Ciao Soul Friend,
Today I finally felled this beautiful acacia, which when cut into logs will mean a lot of blessed firewood for my stove.
It took many days to cut – not full days, but multiple sessions of sawing and axing, checking and being care-full… sitting down and listening… and then the final push this afternoon, which was perfectly aligned with wind, weight of tree, my positioning, tipping point, length of fallen tree, etc, etc
I’m speaking in this podcast around how a challenge like this can be a profound experience of holistic growth – rather than a strenuous transactional activity.
Our true health and our spiritual vitality come from approaching tasks like this in reverence and gratitude, courage and embodied wisdom, so that we may reap the riches of not just the resouces, but all kinds of other enrichment, too…
Blessings and Life to you!
