I Pray to the Birds

My love for birds seems to be growing and deepening these days.  And so I resonate with this short passage from REFUGE by Terry Tempest Williams. 

     “I pray to the birds.

     “I pray to the birds because I believe they will carry the messages of my heart upward.  I pray to them because I believe in their existence, the way their songs begin and end each day–the invocations and benedictions of Earth.  I pray to the birds because they remind me of what I love rather than what I fear.  And at the end of my prayers, they teach me how to listen.”

    My yoga teacher read this last week. I just love it and had to know from where it came. Thank you sincerely.
