I have a friend, mi hermano, Mateo Zepeda, who when I share with him experiences I have when walking along a river or when encountering a deer or things like that reminds me that there is a medicine in these experience. He talks of 'river medicine' and 'deer medicine' and of his happiness for my encounters with these subtle forms of existence. I am so grateful to him, because he contextualizes exactly what these experiences offer to me and how they feel to me, when I choose to pay attention. They offer an experience of being healed in what ails me (often in ways that defy quantification, description, specific identification) and I suspect a great many of us in a deep and personally meaningful and satisfying way. The bottom line is that these experiences simply feel very, very good. (Alas, I'm attempting to quantify, describe, identify. Oh well. :-)
Mother Nature! Where would we be without you?
