Wisdom may come your way if you listen to the urge to explore. “Devils Tower” or “Bear Lodge” as it was known to the Native American cultures, is more than just a geological marvel. Early this autumn morning while perched on the face of the rock, I meditate. I seek to inquire about what the meaning and purpose of this magnificent formation is from earth. While tuning into the energies of its nature, the rock gifted me an overwhelming sensation of home, love, and grounded security. There is a notion of respect and a feeling palpable through my spine that speaks to the union of all beings. Upon opening my eyes I could see birds and antelope far off in the distance and intuitively knew that they felt the same energy from the rock on one level or another. My experience of union with the universe was powerful, and would surely carry on as a lesson from earth not to be forgotten. But why had Gaia created this rock? From the ancient magma that formed many millions of years ago, the clear message of unity that I received spoke to a reason of love and balance in life. It was there to heal inevitable malicious intent. Just like there cannot be a front without a back, there cannot be love without evil. This Tower of rock emanated uniting frequencies to combat ego driven forces that seek to disconnect consciousness from its source. I cannot help but to now become more curious about what else Mother Earth has grown as sources of this healing energy. In the end, I crawled down the steep boulder field at the base of the rock face, and walked away happy.
Parked in a field, amongst the scurry of Walmart and torrential thunderstorms, I find happiness. Today seems like a good day to stay mellow after yesterday’s adventures. A leaky roof, some good literature, and a wandering fly keep me company inside my caravan. The weather is dictating the mood; spooky, yet mystical. A coal train passes by, symbolic of my will to keep on. Although unlike the train who’s rails prescribe a path, my journey meanders through a field of unpredictability. Everything I have is pointed toward the land of the stranger. My soul searches to answer questions about our world, and what it means to be human. Throughout this journey, the peaks and valleys of my energy ride waves of intuitive feelings. With each oscillation an overarching moral of presence begins to uncover itself, while each answer I find seems to prompt more questions. What else is there to find along the way?
Let the adventures begin. This is my first home, rent and mortgage free. With everything I need to live she’s 13 feet of freedom, and will throw me into the field of pure potentiality to chase my dreams. As an exercise of detaching myself from materialism, and a project of sustainability, she definitely has some lessons to teach me. Some might ask if my home has a backyard, and now I can say, it’s everywhere! #offthegrid
