LOVE WINS! These are challenging times...the shadow is coming to light -conflict is intense. Step inside and know you are LOVE ITSELF. Shine your light and hold fast! LOVE WINS!
Dust swirled behind our car as we headed down the old dirt road in the early Colorado morning. Suddenly we noticed what appeared to be an owl sitting on an iron fence rail."Must be a fake owl," I thought and then saw it move. "Stop the car!," Jo said, as we coasted to a stop.
Grabbing her phone, Jo got out as I exited the other door. The barn owl didn't move. Resting on the fence a few feet away, he continued to peer toward the west, seemingly undisturbed by our presence. We quietly snapped a few photos of his back and profile, grateful for such an intimate experience with this magnificent creature, rarely seen during the day.
As Jo returned to the car, the bird turned and stared directly at her, revealing his broad heart-shaped face and spreading one large wing, as if to show off his beauty and affirm his presence and strength. Claiming his space, he seemed quietly powerful and confident, gazing at us with interest and ancestral wisdom. He offered his unspoken gift of the ability to navigate in the dark and the courage to face fears of the unknown.
Still in awe as we drove away, I looked in the rear view mirror and watched as he pulled up his beautiful wing, turned his head, and closed his eyes. In silent appreciation we accepted his gift of trust and equanimity. Something had changed, and we continued down the road with an awareness and commitment to live life even more on the wing.
