Seawolf's Haven

Seawolf's Haven
Earth Medicine



No man can reveal to you
aught but that
which already lies half asleep
in the dawning  of your knowledge

The teacher who walks
in the shadow of the temple,
among his followers,
gives not of his wisdom
but rather of his faith
and his lovingness.

If he is indeed wise
he does not bid you enter
the house of his wisdom,
but rather leads you
to the threshold
of your own mind.

The astronomer may speak to you
of his understanding
of space.
but he cannot give you 
his understanding.

The musician may sing to you
of the rhythm
which is in all space,
but he cannot give you
the ear which arrests the rhythm,
nor the voice that echoes it.

And he who is versed
in the science of numbers
can tell of the regions
of weight and measure,
but he cannot conduct  you thither

For the vision of one man
lends not its wings
to another man

And even as each one of you
stands alone
in God`s knowledge,
so must each one of you
be alone in his knowledge of God
and in his understanding
of the earth

Kahlil Gibran - The Prophet

~We shall be known by the tracks we leave behind ~

~ Man cannot discover new oceans
Until he has courage to lose sight of the shore~
