Tangy Tales of Touche : Mother Knows Best
True to its title, these twenty Tangy Tales of Touche shout out the splendor, power, passages and healing properties inherent to Mother Nature, who absolutely knows best and who is far more forgiving and kind than the humans who control, use her or abuse her. Deep within Mother's nurturing and purifying nature, she exhibits wide extremes from which we can learn the essence and interplay among wind, earth, space, fire and water - and their shared hugs and handshakes resulting in the creation of vast energy fields when they dance together. Just like these five rudiments comprise Mother, they also reside and collide within everything which reflects you and me. What about Mother? On the one hand, she is highly ordered by balance and harmony; while, on the other hand, she remains constant in her exhibition of a tousled appearance, realigned by ostensibly chaotic changes, such as erupting volcanos, massive earthquakes, surging tsunamis, dynamic typhoons, swirling cyclones and damaging hurricanes. Each time disheveled, after wreaking havoc on her inhabitants and rearranging Her landscapes, She returns to Her calming posture of balance and harmony, where Her ebb and flow becomes once again naturally healing. What can we learn from our Mother? The lessons are many, as illustrated throughout the storytelling. Her prevailing prophesy is "life's only constant is change," ever-shifting alterations and corrections rubbing together and sending off boundless waves of energy during the process.
