Desert Medicine, Slow Roots, and Spring Beginnings

Rewind 15 seconds

There is a reason why we need Spring and Sunrises, Births, and New Beginnings. We can’t swim in the depths and death of the underworld forever. Our bodies crave the cyclical way. Our bodies crave the knowing that there will always be a second chance waiting for us around the bend somewhere and at some point in the future. Otherwise, what would be the point of living?
Spring offers us that chance to remember that grace, grace is woven into everything. There is no eternal damnation except for through our own choosing. And even if we did choose it — even if we did choose to fracture ourselves off into the darkness forever, there is always a hand that is reach in to pull us out. We only have to say that we want it. We only have to say that we want the resurrection. We want the shift. We want the turning. We want the warmth of the cool spring dawn.
