Reflection for today…Wandering -Clarissa Pinkola Estés

“Is it worse to stay where one does not belong at all than to wander about lost for a while and looking for the psychic and soulful kinship one requires”

This quote begs the question…

Would you rather be a lone wolf or part of a pack/tribe?

{If you think about it, we are both a lone wolf and a pack/tribe member}.

We are all individuals yet we belong to a pack/tribe- our family and our greater family- humanity}.

*To be honest, I am a lone wolf.

Peace & Namaste…

    Women Who Run With the Wolves! I used to have that book 🙂 I read it so much the cover fell off. I am defo a lone wolf. Maybe that’s why I feel so at home in cyberspace? Still seeking that kinship…

      Jas Baku…
      Don’t you love those books that you have loved to death?
      Wow, you must have loved that book so much that you read it until the cover fell off.
      That is a literary love affair!

      I am also a lone wolf that still seeks sacred kinship.
      I think that cyberspace/the internet is a good place to connect with like minded individuals.
      It is so difficult to meet people in our daily lives that we have a connection with- let alone a friendship with.

      I truly think that it doesn’t matter where we meet or interact with these kindred souls just as long as we do 😉

      Love & Light…

    A ‘literary love affair’, I like that! And indeed it was, (years back, as well.)
    We are well met then, my friend. I do feel close to people I only know in cyberspace. These connections are so important as well ~ they nourish the soul.
    I don’t get out much in physical reality, but on-line!… Friends across the world ❤
