Domesticated. Is that a word that describes you or the life you are leading? Are you “settling” for less than your heart desires? Taking a look at the rote ways in which we live the moments of our lives can be painful to that wild creature that lives, breathes and moves inside of us. You know the one!
“We are here to fall in love with a lot more than just our mate… trees, stones, rivers, animals, birds, planets, galaxies, poems, music….”
~ Rev Matthew Fox
The creature inside that yearns to paint on the walls way outside the lines, dance outside at midnight (maybe in the nude!) to celebrate the universe inside and out, dig in the earth and come away with bits of dirt and leaves all over our clothes, speak out loudly and with conviction when a tree is cut down that doesn’t need to be cut except for some other humans profit, go out of our way not to “follow the rules” and instead find a path and a way that creates more life for ourself and others, and…..you speak more here!
Our planet and all life on it, as well as our individual aliveness, depends not only on engaging that Wild Wisdom, but embodying it with fearless grace and passion. What is it that you desire? Desire is not bad…it is a passionate means to access the gifts that we have to bring and the full life we have to live this time around. It is the fuel which feeds the Wild Wisdom that is within all of us.
I invite you to listen to my dear friend Lea Bayles speak to Wild Wisdom that sought her out to remind us to commit to and honor this intelligence whose time has come to return once again into our global consciousness and actions…NOW.
This piece is eloquent, intelligent, grounded, irreverent, deliciously sensual, and a call to all women and men to not ever dare again to shut away Wild Wisdom in a closet somewhere whimpering low sounds of mournful abandonment.
We were born with Wild Wisdom. It is all around us in nature and the interconnection of life that never ceases to evolve opportunity and change. It lives and breathes innately within us. Are we ready to listen??
“Within you, and in nature, is the potent, instinctual, untamable
and nourishing force of Wild Wisdom.
You need it. I need it.
Our world needs us to bring forth our Wild Wisdom.” Lea Bayles
….and some Wild Wisdom words from Allan Watts..

Comments on: "The Return of Wild Wisdom" (2)
Dear Gaye! Thank you for your continued inspiration!
I love the image of the woman in the earth – I had a vision about self-belief once and to my surprise that was exactly what I saw/felt: my whole being becoming earth! It was so grounding and it remains a touch-stone for when I lose faith in my inner strength, as I feel back into that feeling of being earth and sink into the love of creation. Love your work, as always, blessings Marilyn
Such a delight to receive this comment Marilyn! For me also it is when I am deeply connected to nature and the Earth that I feel at home and in my strength and power. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and feelings. Love it! Namaste, Gaye
