From above, one can get a more clearer perspective: more things come into view and a greater, overall understanding may be formed. I am guided by the Eagle and Wolf Spirit.
Picture being lost in a forest: while walking around it is more difficult to find your way, as supposed to flying above the forest. Gaining some height can bring a clearer view.
I am careful not to think of "higher" as some sort of a "better" place to be though. Walking around with our heads in the clouds and like some sort of untouchable, or "higher" Being is not nice, to say the least in my opinion. It's just that from time to time, it would do anyone good to take some time off and walk with Spirit - just to get a clearer understanding about our Being.
I wish everyone well: Mitakuye Oyasin.
May Wakan Tanka guide us All!
