Q: Considering that the Elephant’s natural habitat is in the wilds of Asia and Africa, far from the buzz of the world that most of us live, how can we deepen our relationship with these beings?
A: Turn inward. The wild is your home, too. Sit quietly in your garden or in your room. Lose your mind and open your heart…we are there. We are both capable and willing to engage in communication with you. Ask a question, we will answer. Look in our eyes. You needn’t be with us to do this. Just ask within. You will see our souls. Return to the heart of your heart. Return to the wild…the wild heart. Not only will you learn of your brother and sister elephant, but you will uncover your own lost self. That self that has a song to sing to the Earth. Sing your song. We will join you. Weep and we weep as well. Weeping together with each other, with the Earth and her creatures, our thoughts will stop, our hearts will open and the miracle will happen.
