A Coyote appeared next to highway 101 on the Oregon coast as we went to walk on the beach after picking mushrooms. Coyote, Wisdom and Folly, Trickster, Creator, what do you bring me in this divine play? I’m not ready to be the butt of your joke!
I am Coyote. Remember when you feel that the joke is on you that I am with you wherever you go. I am playing the game of hide-and-seek when you don’t see me. I am laughing with you when you feel the fool.
This is the source of my Wisdom, the divine silent laughter that permeates all changes of creation. It is adaptability and shrewdness that sees when it is wrong and recharges the batteries with a belly laugh followed by a wide smile, ear to ear that distributes the energy of life to every cell, lighting you back up with Creative Power.
I ask the question, “Would you rather be right or happy?” Would you rather stumble and fall while helping others or go lame from fear and inaction? I was there by the road, then disappeared into the bushes. This is the way of success and failure – now you see it, now you don’t!
It is all a play of shadows and light. Remember to love and embrace your shadows and you will radiate your luminous presence with ease and grace.
With Much Love, Unconditional Forgiveness and Infinite Abundance, I am Coyote.
