Be Independent


All birds, even those of the same species, are not alike, and
it is the same with animals and with human beings. The reason
Wakan Tanka does not make two birds, or animals, or human beings
exactly alike is because each is placed here by Wakan Tanka to
be an independent individuality and to rely upon itself.

Wakan Tanka: (Wakȟáŋ Tȟáŋka) from the Lakota meaning, The Great Mystery or ‘the sacred’ or ‘the divine’

    • Just saw her today, or perhaps it was her younger sister. She was looking out her nest hole that she digs
      for having their young. She was catching some early morning Sun.

  1. Absolutely and as the independent colors rock our universe we collectively create our own universe !! Love coming in to see you post… Connecting together as I clears to we and we clears to each and every unique speck of light in the holographic light if love

    • There you are Earth Angel. Hearing your kind words and listening to your thoughts tells me you are tracking
      high above the celestial plane. Travel safe in mind and body as you whirl around the cosmos. hugs, Eddie
