“You have lived with it for a long time and this is all you know,” the Lion replied. “Imparted forgiveness, respect, wisdom will help, and it will be a song and dance—just like a child learning to walk. Would you ever chide a child for not knowing how to walk? Don’t beat yourself up when you feel shame and guilt, just recognize it. Don’t beat yourself up when you don’t forgive yourself or another, just be with it. Letting things be part of your awareness elevates your learning, for you have come to learn. Learn the wonderful things that Mother Earth imparts as part of her wisdom. You know that is the best part about living on Mother Earth. She is very forgiving.”
“So, she would forgive us for all that we have done to her as part of my family legacy?”
“Yes, she would, for is this not where healing lies? Why would she do or be otherwise? It is her privilege to take care of her children. She knows her children fall and bruise; she can’t punish them for that. Think about this: here you were going along carrying your family legacy and I come in your dream and talk to you about the most pressing matters of your times. I have not even lived in your time. Isn’t that a miracle?”
I paused. I had not thought about the miraculousness of my learning from the Lion.
“Mother Earth knows how to communicate her thoughts and feelings to her children,” the Lion continued. “She knows the right way to teach them and impart her wisdom. Your job is to be open, to receive her wisdom. She talks to everyone on the planet. No one is left out and no one is special. She talks to them in the same voice, the same tone, only the venues differ.”
