Spirit Animal - Secret of Life


I love the question, “What is the secret of life?”

Yes, it is a big question.  It has many answers.  I read in one of my books that the problem with humans is that they always look down instead of looking up.  They watch for rocks and stones and holes and things that could trip them up.  They watch from fear.

If humans looked up, they can follow the Sun, the Moon, the North Star, the flight of the birds, and watch how the wind blows the clouds.  Looking up brings us guiding messages.  Looking down all the time slows us down.

Yes, tripping and falling may cause a delay, however, there is much to be said for learning to pick yourself up time and time again.  Babies learing to walk do not look down.  They look forward and up.  They fall.  They stand up again.  They persevere.  They grow.  They are fearless.

I wish you fearlessness.
