How well do you make your own moccasins?

 
 
 

Me; What’s the greatest teaching in life?
Old Woman: You have to make your own moccasins.
Me: You’re kidding right?
Old Woman: No. You make them from the hide of your experience, all the places you have walked. You sew them with the thread of the teachings, the lessons in all the hard miles. You stitch them carefully with all the needles of your intention – to walk a spiritual path – and when you’re finished you realize that Creator lives in the stitches. That’s what helps you walk more gracefully.

So I got busy learning how to sew….
