The Sound under a Tree

0

Can you imagine the sound from all the bumble bees?

This morning I took my coffee, and went down to this magnificent tree in our garden. When the children were very small, they used to call this tree “the banana tree” Max, even tried to eat one of the yellow flowers.

The stillness at this moment, only birds and bumble bees. A cat walks by, slowly on his way home, after a night out.

The peacefulness, that’s the feeling I always want to carry with me, inside my heart.

That’s Amore!

Other fantastic tree in our garden.

The Beauty Outside and Inside

Gaining Control

“Once upon a time, a woman moved to a cave in the mountains to study with a guru. She wanted, she said, to learn everything there was to know.

The guru supplied her with stacks of books and left her alone so she could study. Every morning, the guru returned to the cave to monitor the woman’s progress. In his hand, he carried a heavy wooden cane.

Each morning, he asked her the same question: “Have you learned everything there is to know yet?” Each morning, her answer was the same. “No,” she said, “I haven’t.”

The guru would then strike her over the head with his cane. This scenario repeated itself for months. One day the guru entered the cave, asked the same question, heard the same answer, and raised his cane to hit her in the same way, but the woman grabbed the cane from the guru, stopping his assault in midair.

Relieved to end the daily batterings but fearing reprisal, the woman looked up at the guru. To her surprise, the guru smiled. “Congratulations,” he said, “you have graduated. You now know everything you need to know.” “How’s that?” the woman asked. “You have learned that you will never learn everything there is to know,” he replied

“And you have learned how to stop the pain.”

I Run with Maud

🏃🏼‍♀️ People across the country are running 2.23 miles in honor of Ahmaud Arbery, who was shot and killed while jogging.

So did I, and, I “ran” a little extra to “honor” the silent victims/survivors that’s out there with their invisible scars.

Codependents Receiving Support from Horses

0

💚 Codependents are many times having a difficult time finding the help and healing they need. Many times as a codependent, some people can give you the feeling that you chose the situation yourself. A non-drinking person, in a relationship with an alcoholic, is in just as much pain, and need just as much healing, as the alcoholic. etc.


Together with an experienced and passionate therapist you can find a road to healing. However, together with Animals it has shown another kind of successful healing recovery.
The horse/dog makes sure you are taking care of yourself— they give, and together with them, you dare to open up, and honest.


That’s Amore

Julia, the horse in the middle, is one of our most fantastic therapists.
