The Nesting Place

The Nesting Place

The bird who learns to fly must also learn to land.

She flies far but never forgets her nesting place.

She travels far yet understands her boundaries.

She appreciates external beauty but does not compare herself to others.

The [yogi] is like this.

She channels great joy and avoids putting on airs;

She visits distant realms, yet knows contentment’s at home.

One who flits about seeking peace forgets to look in her own tree.

—Haven Trevino, The Tao of Healing
