Some days it’s Eagles - other days it’s Dung Beetles
Isn’t it so that some days things are going smoothly, you have a plan, a clear vision of your goals and the pathway forward to all of this glorious being-ness. And then other days you are down in it-mulching around in the excrement, sorting through what to keep and what to toss out.
Oh sure you might think, I would much rather have the eagle as my totem versus the dung beetle but they are both necessary. The eagle with the lofty vision and capacity of soaring heights and the dung beetle doing the hard work of sorting through the crap to alchemize it so you may have that knowledge of the way forward. Both are partners in the creation of the fertile ground we need to grow our vision of our best self.
