Coyote is a master trickster
Notorious for finding shortcuts along the trails of Life
Sometimes it makes sense to take the scenic route
Even when a quicker alternative path may appear
Like when you stop and smell the roses . . .
And a scent stimulates an adventure down memory lane
Suddenly you are revisited by an old relationship that had escaped
the safety net of your conscious mind
But there is healing when we find forgiveness for our trespasses
Especially when shortcuts unexpectedly take you off the beaten path
Leading you into unexplored mysterious places inside of yourself
What roles have you played in past relationships?
How do your trigger points from your past experiences
inform who you are becoming today?
Is your inner world governed by outer-directed emotional reactions?
Releasing judgments is good for the soul . . .
Try to have a gentle, invisible touch
When regarding either your own or someone else’s
personal blunders in relationship
Look back at the corners you have cut for a moment . . .
What do you have to learn about yourself in those close encounters?
Remember that unwelcome situations that were initially judged as foolish . . .
Perhaps later will be seen as surprise gifts
Merely wrapped up in brilliant disguises
Try to see the wisdom in your follies
The tricks are here to teach you something about yourself
Perhaps it has been a folly of yours to avoid opening your heart
to deeper heartfelt connections
But it would be wise to recognize how your own intimacy issues
have blocked the arteries that pump life into making heart-centered connections –
in spite of any undesirable qualities of another person
May Coyote guide you to see beyond the security of your old boarders and edges
See you further on up the trails,
