I was recently asked to provide healing to animals, wild animals nonetheless! I’m not a veterinarian or a zoologist and I doubt the horsemanship training I did at summer camp eons ago would serve me much now. So, why was I asked to help with the animals? Holistic health care is becoming more and more mainstream, and many people do not view it as exclusive to humans.
Glancing through last month’s issue of Word, I was inspired by its feature on music. I immediately thought of the Fibonacci Sequence, the seemingly magical fractal equation that can be found in compositions throughout nature, art and music. The spiraling pattern created by the sequence can be observed in the smallest to the largest objects in the natural world.
When things get a little crazy many of us search our external environment for an explanation. Sometimes we’re so blindsided we have no idea where to look to figure out the turn of events.
Fear. It seems to seep in more with age. This was my observation during a recent conversation. While the empirical evidence for this statement may be lacking, research indicates that fear and anxiety levels have risen in recent years. Certainly fear has its place in keeping us safe, however many people live in a near constant state of fear.
I have to admit that it’s been a while since I read, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. To be honest I don’t recall finishing it but I do recall being confused. Was I confused because I didn’t know much about motorcycles or did the book cross my path too early on my journey to ‘zendom’? It was probably a combination of both.
