Into the Wild Festival news: If you don’t know something about loneliness I’m not quite sure you can really k

Latest update from Into the Wild

If you don’t know something about loneliness I’m not quite sure you can really know Amor.

Prepare. Preparing well means that you can absorb the intensities rather than be completely flattened by them. That’s not to say rationality has a great deal of say. But, if the courtship is true (and be prepared for many false starts in this regard, I’m afraid—it’s called an educated heart), then you can rise to meet it, like the prow of some northern ship on the nine waves, not cowed and half crazed with want.

Become mighty and settled in yourself. Or at least pretend and work up slowly. This usually takes a long time, but the seeds are tickling away under the soil from very early on, jiggling about. As your father I will sing over the seeds with you, shoulder to shoulder. Know the animal you are and you will be a little less likely to be seduced by the detritus of the world.

Some enlightened souls will tell you that you can have the experience of Amor entirely on your own, in complete containment. I don’t think so. Risk is part of it; visibility is part of it; contact is part of it. You can’t find your soul-kin without it.

No one is complete. No one can absolutely provide everything you ever longed for. But that’s not really the point. It shouldn’t make them small, but rather, interesting.

But it is the compass of your heart that will give you the discernment between the swooping birds that showboat the sky and that steady one that shows up on the same sweet current of air.
