As we practice mindfulness, we can look to the turtle as a model of how to behave. Consider how a turtle moves through the world.
Here on the Gulf Coast, many of us have been lucky enough to witness a sea turtle’s tedious journey from nest to ocean. Have you ever noticed how quiet people become when they happen upon this miracle of survival? People stop everything they’re doing to watch, and as a crowd gathers, there’s no need for the spectators to hush each other.
Somehow, this ancient creature commands humans’ reverence and respect—not because it’s fast or beautiful or agile, but because it’s fulfilling the prophecy of Mother Nature, and accepting its path with resolute innocence.
