Splendid Sams

“What senses and perceptions have we neutered or suppressed through the false sophistication we use to hide our common human frailties?

The wise person knows that those healed senses can bring renewal, making us aware of the multitude of worlds that surround us. This simple understanding stands at the core of human potential, holding the open door that invites us to drop our masks. Without the blinders, we may remember who we really are and the powers of perception we hold. At the very least, we could be fortunate enough to rehabilitate our human compassion and sensitivity.” Jamie Sams – Earth Medicine, Ancestors’ Ways of Harmony for Many Moons

Sams, whether intentional or not, is a beautiful champion for nudity of soul, of human being human. With that loveliest of re-dresses, we find a wholeness nothing can surpass and an exquisite sensitivity birthing heart’s best songs each day. So, off I go to sun shining and day calling, excruciatingly aware of how achingly, preciously flawed I am and how the stripping away of the masks I wore has hurt. But beautifully so…
