I read this today, " Where ritual is absent the young ones are restless or violent, there are no real elders, and the grown-ups are bewildered. Malidoma Some
Isn't that our world and the world we grew up in? Where ARE the leaders? Are we the leaders now or the confused grown-ups? What can we do to place ritual in our children's lives? Just what IS ritual? Just kidding, but really I think there must be so much to learn. We have lost the way of our ancestors, maybe we should find it and even if the records of the past have been lost, the answers are still written, in every living thing, the bumble and the honeybee taught me that.
What if there is a germ and I can give it to people I associate with and this bug can spread like a computer virus affecting everyone I come in contact with and everyone they come in contact with? What if it is a bright virus, a virus that mutates and transforms some of our unused DNA into awakening and what if the name of the contagion is joy and I can spread it?
