From the Ashes

Walking through a month-old prescribed burn area in the Ochocos, I notice little patches of green here and there. Since the fire was allowed to ‘run’ close to the ground the heat did not penetrate deeply into the soil. New life is already springing up from the ashes, grateful for the nutrients supplied.

If we were to do prescribed burns in our emotional life, we could grow fresh plants of awareness without so much fuss. We just make sure to keep it to ourselves so we do not burn anyone else. Emotions can naturally cleanse our inner environment if allowed to be “freed in their own condition” without grasping or pushing away. Middle path emotional forest management?

Much Love,
