“You did not come into this world. You came out of it, like a wave out of the ocean. You are not a stranger here.” – Alan Watts
I picked up this quote today from a very worthwhile article in a back issue of Aontacht, the online magazine produced by the group Druidic Dawn (link is here – the article, “What it Means to be Native”, by Jenn McCormack, begins on page 29).
I wrote more than once on my old blog about the experience of becoming a “local” and the impact of that on my spiritual work – this article does a good job of summing up the work that is involved, and one way to go about doing it oneself.
