Hello Sisters and Brothers!
I have been sick and am honoring my body and giving her what she needs, so this month I am sharing some sacred wisdom from my mentor, my friend, my late Uncle Digby, whom I dedicate my work to.
My Uncle Digby is a wise and gentle soul, I say is, because he is still here with me and his words and lessons come through in my teachings all the time and I wanted to share a bit of him with you this month.
A letter I received from Digby many years ago included the following (Digby always typed in all lower case & I want to honor his unique expression):
"my guide and companion is stone michael. he has been my wisdom in need and anchor in the storm. he is my truthstone and journey master from ancient times. i asked him what is spirituality and how could i become more spiritual. i have attached his answer with this note."
spirituality is a softness in the universe
it is a place where all is at rest
and at peace with all else
it is not something you make happen
it is an invitation
you may find spirituality
by recognizing yourself as you are now
by enjoying and delighting in all of your being now
by accepting all your disowned fragments now
spirituality comes as much from what you let go of
as it does from what you create
when you let go of your ugliness
you make room for laughter
when you let go of your fear
you make room for curiosity
when you let go of your shame
you make room for vision
when you let go of your helplessness
you make room for creation
when you let go of your childishness
you make room for wisdom
when you let go of your arrogance
you make room for partnership
spirituality is a view of the universe
it is knowing the sanctity of all creation
spirituality comes from being within creation
all of creation is a conversation
you and i are chords in that conversation

I cherish the moments of memory that I have tucked away of my time with Digby. I miss him more with my growth and his absence, how I wish we could sit with some tea and listen to the trees, and ponder the wind and the stars.
