A griot is a storyteller that informs the tribe.
As a griot for your family, work-site and community, which stories are you planting? Are you sharing health-building, wealth-building, confidence-building tales? Are you sharing how to be Grateful, how to be Compassionate, how to be Loving and Inclusive, even as we, Mama Earth's Citizens face stormy weather and uncertainty that drenches and dampens the spirit at times?
Soul-deep and rich stories about living life, basking in the soil of infinite resources and infinite support and sharing that which heals and uplifts, are all available in our gardens, so to speak.
What tools do we access within ourselves to value the compost of experience? Do you expect and enjoy the rain water's healing capacity for restoration and rejuvenation and plant seeds of hope and faith in rich fertile soil? What stories stimulate your remembrance that the blooms inevitably show up amongst decomposing plant matter with grace and beauty?
If you find that uplifting stories are challenging for you to access and then share, what do you need to release and be open to, to realize your gifts as a Griot in the Garden of Life? How do you accept all the available cycles and sow peace and joy and THEN... harvest all of this peace and joy With your Tribe? For your Tribe?
This beautiful gardening practice begins with me.
This beautiful gardening practice begins with you.
I am grateful and give Many Thanks for you!
You are a Modern Day Griot in the Garden!
