THE VISION QUEST a Journey Into Truth ; The Forest

What do you wish to know today?” I nearly jumped out of my skin but quickly realized that it was my guidance.

I want to know the truth.”

All right, come with me.” My Spirit Body was lifted like one would lift an infant off of the floor and raised out of my biology as my guide begin to fly. “Funny,” I thought, “I never noticed that he had wings before.” I dangled beneath watching the top of my head grow smaller as we rose until he changed his grip so that held me around my waist causing me to be looking down on the earth just like he was, until I could see the roof of my house growing smaller below.

The wind whipped through my hair and the feeling of freedom was so exhilarating. I had to look down for the wind in my eyes made them tear up so that I could see nothing. I observed the land below as we climbed higher and higher. I saw roof tops, and streets, rivers and mountains and still we climbed, all receding to little dots. Soon all I could see below me were clouds. They were not just your everyday white fluffy ones, oh they were there but, there were some with colors, pale hues of all that you can imagine. Beautiful.

The quiet was deep and still, even with the wind rushing past my ears, the peace was indescribable, even though I am usually terrified of heights, I felt safe in the circle of my Angels arms. I just relaxed and enjoyed the view. We traveled for what seemed like many days until I was asked “What do you see?” I answered “just clouds, beautiful clouds.” he began to make a big circle and to fly lower as we progressed.

Soon I could see a huge green forest filling a low valley between two large unidentifiable mountain ranges. “Now what do you see?” the angel queried. “A forest, a huge green forest and maybe a lake over to the left.” We continued to circle the forest, losing a bit of altitude with each spiral.

As we did so I began to see the wood in greater detail. I could now see the difference between coniferous and deciduous trees. I could soon see that there were some with flowers and there were massive willows and there were paths all over the place. Some were broad and some narrow. Some were straight and some were crooked. Some branched in many different directions and there were branches off of the branches. Some had pilgrims and some did not. The entire forest was dissected by these paths. I began to follow one with my eyes and it lead to the very center of these many paths in the large wood. Right in the middle of the valley forest was the biggest oak tree I have ever seen in my life.

What is that big tree in the middle that all the paths seem to lead to?” I asked my Angel. His answer surprised me, “It is the truth, the tree of life, wisdom, the representation of the 'All that Is'. “Now what do you see?”

His last question opened something deep within and for the first time, I saw with true vision. Vision not obfuscated by my perceptions, judgments or ideas. “I see Many Paths, One Truth.”

You see well then,” he said, “we will now return.” With that pronouncement I found myself back in my body, in my home. I was rested, restored and enlightened. I hold this vision as one of my most important lessons, I will tell you of others later. Where will you find your truth? Namaste!
