Colonialism--this might be the quality that as a caucasian may summarize the nature of greed, materialism, power, ownership, entitlement, and more. I have been examining a strain of this for quite some time. Living in foreign countries provides some new insight, but talking with a foreigner who has lived all over the world has finally shed some light on this quality. Sitting with the concept of money and its' relevance, distortions, and balance. Would like to move past this examination of #2 on the list. Almost ready to make a trial of a year with no haggling, energetic snags, or fixation on it and see what happens. Let Go!! Show up at work, work from a place of integrity/love, and remove expectations.

Two weeks on the road has been like a magic carpet. Visiting family and friends from my spiritual family. Long drives between Northern CA, Spokane, WA, Bozeman, MT, and Carbondale, CO gave me a wonderful opportunity to contemplate and integrate what had unfolded during the visits.
How could one every think this journey would be without a community? Each visit felt like a gem and a touchstone to some remarkable aspect of being part of the Universe through the lens of an examined life. Interesting to see how each of the personalities have gravitated to examining life through intense studies of music, body practices, astrology, human genome, meditation, reading, religion, and more.
Finishing up the four part webinar from the Diamond Approach: meditation, sensing, and self inquiry. It is a formalized system that supports what I have come to realize as the practices needed for a human to be a better partner to the horse.
Gearing up for a six week exploration of Selfseeds with participants in Colorado. Plus, an examination of the horse industry and what is a possible orientation moving forward.
Found a gym nearby to continue with the fitness thread and I was able to find one in each city as I traveled. Fitness options are readily available. Health checks were all positive. Thank you Universe.

On the road again. Northern California first stop. Long drives and time to reflect are awesome. Visiting friends who are committed to the path—double awesome. One point is clear, the path itself is the escalator and my shoe lace caught in the escalator is the pull to let go and align with integrity and without separation to Source.
