DEER – The Pathfinder
“Trust your instincts to guide you through the situation. It’s a big forest out there, and I’m sure you feel a little lost some times. Let me tell you; however, that the path is well marked even if you can’t always make it out at any given moment. Come to your senses – literally -and stop thinking so much about it, or at least stop trying to figure out what to do or which way to go by analysis and cogitation.”
“Use your eyes, ears, and nose, to gather information. Then drop your awareness into your gut, which is the seat of your instinctual self. Your senses are meant to register information in a way that can be felt in the body, which is your most reliable compass.”
“The mind is useful – don’t get me wrong – but it’s much overrated, and all those random or obsessive thoughts can get in the way of pure awareness. Pure awareness means without preconceived notions, anxiety, or anticipation. Close your eyes, breathe deeply and easily, clear your mind, and you’ll know what to do to find your way through.”
“Additional associations: gentleness, cunning, grace and purity.”
