Spirit Animal - Tortoise Speaks Of Life


Tortoise comes in to speak with us about long life.  She is a prime example of living through many iterations of change, whether it is climate or food or surroundings.

Tortoise passes along this wisdom:

  • Pace yourself.  Hurrying does not gain you any time.  It simply wears you out.
  • Pay attention to your surroundings.  You need to find the best place to eat, to rest, to go for entertainment.  You cannot see these places if you rush.
  • Eat and live simply.  There is a peace in living simply that is destroyed by rushing, power, and materialism.
  • Be kind to yourself.  Know that you are doing what is best for you.  If you feel it is not best for you, do not do it.
