Seis de Mayo

Yesterday for the Cinqo de Mayo we did nothing special. I thought about tacos for dinner, but things got busy and we ended up with sushi from Tokyo Joe instead.
For me, every day is sort of a celebration - I am here, I am able to make my art, I am following what I think is my truest path sharing this with the world, and I am so grateful for this.
It does amaze me how much we humans create escapes for ourselves. I always need a good adventure/travel/personal exploration book by my bed to read at night.
Right now it is The Lost City of Z - a fun read about Percy Harrison Fawcett, a British surveyor, who disappears looking for a lost city in the Amazon.
In my daily practice of shamanism, I get to go other places, some label this imagination, but those of us who practice this see so many miraculous connections to unknowable truth associated with the information we get, we know it is more than simple imagination.
In a way, this last year, with loss of job and house, and with my own loss of health, I had no choice but to jump in deep with both feet; to jump into whatever Spirit created for me.
Co-created, I should say, there is always personal choice necessary for Spirit to move us.
What challenges do you face?
Are you using those challenges to move you to the truest place in your life?
If not,
Journaling about it all has tremendously helped me understand this path, and that's why I share it here. I would love to hear of your challenges and how they move you toward wisdom.
