    Root

    Since I moved back home to take care of my dad I’ve been surrounded by the redwood trees.

    Thank you teachers

    The Kabbalah says, “First we receive the light. Then we impart the light. Thus we repair the world.” What is the light that you’re imparting? Do you see how we are connected to each other? To everything? Thank you to all of my teachers. If we’ve exchanged ideas, you’re one of my teachers. I learn so much from all of you. Thank you to the plants. Thank you to the animals. Thank you to spirit. I am listening
