I am awakened in the dark by an incrediblly delicious smell of herbs and onions cooking!
I look over and see Sky pouring a thick creamy soup into two earthenware mugs. I am too weak to get out of the hammock.
"Don't move I will bring it to you." Sky calls out.
He props a pillow under my head and hands me the mug. The first sip is amazingly delicious! I taste onions, potatos and...Goat? I look at Sky.
"It's made with fresh goat milk." replied Sky " 'Have a flock of Nubians and one Nanny (Merry) has a three month old kid. You can thank Merry for tonight's contribution. They eat anything and everything. I bottle raised them so they come home to me."
"Do you live out here alone, Sky?"
"Sometimes, But right now I'm sharing with you. "
"Damn! this is really good! What made you pick me up?"
"Karma, compassion, your suffering, and the connection between fellow beings. If I had left you, your suffering would escalate, and since I knew of such so would have mine. It would have been unbearable for both of us."
"But in a city there are thousands of desperate people suffering, if you picked them all up you would be soon overwhelmed. I am truly grateful, but what you did was naiive."
"I think not. I can see that your heart is scarred by violence and is trapped. The flow of energy is dangerously constricted. At any time this restriction could tighten and your life end abruptly. While you were sleeping I placed my hands over your chakras. What I felt was almost unbearable."
I thought to myself: "Could he somehow tell I have a stent and that I had a heart attack 6 onths ago? It had to be a guess. This is some pot-head outcast hippee goat herder who is deftly practicing sleight of hand! I do not want to make myself unwelcome though."
"You doubt me."
"No! Of course not!" My tone too obviously defensive.
"It's not good. You are in danger. I will make you some tea that will help temporarily. I suggest that you drink it."
"What's in it?" I asked
"Willow Bark, Kava and Cannabis"
"Oh What the hell! Bring it on!"
You must lie still and keep your eyes closed. I will Channel Chi. You will only received as much as you allow your heart to open.......
