Wolf Maidens Greeting

I am a young woman, whom lives, treks, dances and sings with pure wolves. Due to where I live not only do I have the opportunity to have viewed, studied, and experienced living, surrounded by wild born wolves, right on my own land even! But I have also forged a friendship with some captive born pure wolves at my licensed wolf outreach and eco education center in Northern Canada. They have been but one teacher in my life, and I have humbly grown over time with them. It consists of various journeys with various wildlife, and pure wolves as they be, and all their glory. Nothing is ever as great as viewing the wild in the wild, such moments never fail to bring me to my knees in awe, wonder and humble honor. To meet another sentient being on their own hallowed grounds where they belong, brings tears to my eyes. I have an undying love affair and romance with the greatest show on earth...LIFE! and wish to say Namaste' to all fellow earth aliens :0) I hope you feel most welcome here and come back to visit from time to time, perhaps leave your own thoughts and mark to remember you by. It seems that so many are in a hurry these days, and don't just sit back enough and simply BE, I provide a lot of music choices here (Just scroll through them if yee like ) I hope you enjoy your stay no matter how long. I LOVE to meet people and hear their own story. I do feel with my every being, that every morning the sun rises to refresh our souls, and every sunset is honored as a gift, for we are not granted a tomorrow. I have the now to share, and hope you catch the same wild disease. Remember in the words of Dr. Seuss Be who you are, say what you feel, because those who mind dont matter, and those who matter don't mind.

Last Lecture

Namaste' all I was sent this and felt to post about it

being a person of an extremely strong faith and belief system, I honestly feel the end is truly another beginning. That is MY belief. I don't believe in good-bye's, heck in my every day life when I meet someone for the 50th, or the first time, I refuse to say (good-bye.) Maybe so long for now, or catch you on the flip side, even happy trails till we meet again, (Hey not beyond singing that) typically I simply say "Metta", as THAT departure means a LOT. But not good-bye.

I am an avid learner, and most importantly a listener and student of others stories, and journeys and this I think some of you will learn from as well. Wonder should NEVER cease, no matter the circumstances. I find it interesting to view anothers perspective and how they are choosing to handle the given circumstances and their own *physical departure*. His children I am sure are and will continue to be very proud, and he will continue to guide them and watch over them throughout , that I have NO doubt.

I shed whilst watching this video, a tear, not for pity, but for the humbleness and courage to not FIGHT *against* the disease, in such a way it would allow that disease to CRIPPLE and incapacitate the spirit.

That, after doing all he could to of course take a stand, (the chemo etc) he *turned towards it* and embraced it with a divine grace .
Randy I humbly bow. In honor I light this candle of mine

thanks for sharing this amazing clip.
to live life in the moment without dragging one's past into the present while appreciating each moment , being grateful, showing gratitude and of course having fun---of course one has to leave the oblivious state and actually participate in one's own life---truly amazing.
some of us have had a chance to stand at the doorway of mortality and finally realise what the experience of life is really all about and what is important.
i thank you for the reminder, because no matter where one is in life, one should always be reminded of the importance of the gift of life.

You are very precious to light this candle and share it with us not only to honor his last lecture but to remind us to REALLY live EVERY moment we can. I had seen his last lecture and was also moved by his honest humble way. Thank you my friend for caring.

Also re: Derick's comments...so beautifully written -- If I could have said something it would have been what you wrote Derick. Thank you my friend as well.

I am blessed to feel the energy of two wonderful souls touch mine tonight.

Bless you Sky and Bless you Derick

Hello again beautiful Sky, I sit here in front of my computer with tears, unashamedly running down my face as everyone should. I cry not for this man, nor his children fore I believe they are already blessed beyond anything they will ever know. But for the thousands of children out there who will never have such an honorable roll modle in their lives. This is absolutly beautiful, I watched Oprah that day, but my children were late coming home from the bus, so I went looking for them and unknowingly missed this. Thanks so much for posting it.
I also TRY to never say goodbye. I always say see you or catch you later. A/ho

Sky, that video was fantastic, thanks for posting a link to it.

Will said...

Thanks for posting this. I had not seen it before. Very moving and inspirational. Amazing how some people can have so much strength!

I thought of you this morning, Sky when I read the following article in our local paper. I was surprised to learn that there are 500 of these sanctuaries in the U.S.

Sanctuary for Sale

Hua Kola Sky, thanks for showing the clip of Randy, We should all be so humble and forthright when facing such adversity. Every once in a while someone comes along who challenges the world to see through spirituality and absolute humility the essence of what life is really all about. I believe Randy has done this with integrity and a superb amount of honor. When he is gone from this world you can be assured his words will still be ringing in all of our ears, I for one will leave a feather on the mountain for him the next time I am up in the high lands, in honor of his wisdom and bravery.

Namaste' Will, thanks I was sent that article, the place you posted about is a sanctuary that have a huge collection of wolf*dogs*, and a few wolves, that were rescued.

I dont operate a *wolfdog sanctuary* but a *pure* wolf outreach and eco conservation center on *licensing* for wild animals. I know in the states some places with USDA the licensing is restricted to wolfdogs even but many call their wolfcrosses at sanctuaries *wolves* when they are not, they range from very low in content to very high in content but still wolfdogs.

They are a sanctuary that started off taking in in dumped DOGS, and dogs with some wolf in them mostly.

Not until more recently did they get anything in that had a lot of wolf in it (those few possibly could be pure).

I keep my numbers VERY low as I am an *outreach* and though have rescued in the past (have two here that I rescued)..I am mainly about education and conservation here.

I have friends who have rescues that have like 60 plus of these animals at their sanctuary, it's not for me to be doing something like that.

I did it for quite a while on an extremely small scale, and it winds up breaking you financially, emotionally. The rescuing never ends on such things. I have a very active life beyond that, and rescuers who have numbers like that, THAT is their life. I get out daily to ski and snow shoe in the winter, bike and kayak in the summer.

My money and time goes towards building up my eco center for youth programs, wild rehab, and supporting other org's such as WWF and wrsos by being a member, and just giving to such rescues by donating art, or sending in some money etc when possible as it is thankless work.

Work that wouldn't be if humans simply placed all life as being sentient and of value.

The dumping that goes on with all kinds of animals is horrendous it happens from people wanting pet monkeys to pet cats, *sigh* But I realized long ago now I cant save everything, but I sure as can educate with the power of knowledge and also rehabiliate *wild* animals to help keep them *wild*.

I don't want a collection of animals here. It costs enough to do all I do for what I do have, let alone compromising on anything such as the kind of facilities my animals live in or their health/vet care, the more animals someone has I have personally seen some things like habitats being compromised, thus animals spending their lives in small *cages* in rescue.

Glad you enjoyed the video :0) I had never seen it or heard about it either.


sky said...

Namaste' Robin, your such a sweetheart! thank you. I guess one can never be *reminded* too many times in life lest we ever forget :0) I had not heard of this guy or the video till I saw it like some of you, so thought it would have an impact.

Derick your great, thank you for such an amazing post!


sky said...

Namaste' Bob, I was very happy to see someone living fairly close to me as in just over an hour away! You have an amazing site and anyone who loves the stars and planets and space will love your blog!


sky said...

sky said...
