Deep within you, under the heaps of doubt and clutter of stress and buzz of busyness, there burns a slow fire.
The Diné (Navajo) call it the crystal fire.
It is the spark of life that keeps your body moving, that allows all your organs to work together in glorious harmony so that blood gets everywhere it needs to go, and food is digested and muscles and bones move when you tell them to.
You may have a more scientific way of describing it.
When I hear too much:
- What is my thing?
- How will I figure this out?
- When will he (or she) show up in my life?
- Why is it so hard?
- Why won’t they listen?
- What is my life purpose?
I can’t help but think:
Pull up a chair to your fire.
It is warm.
