Smelling the Roses
by Chief Joseph and John Cali
My little town in the USA’s
northern Rocky Mountains used to be a pretty laid- back place. Not
much traffic, not much noise, not much pollution, lots of peace and
quiet, lots of friendly folks. It was, and still is, a great place
to live. But lately I’ve noticed a trend more typical of big cities,
not little western towns.
As I drive or walk around town, more and more I see
people talking on cell phones in their cars. I see people running
red lights, cutting off other cars in traffic. People in stores
and out on the trails are glued to their cell phones, often
glancing at their watches to see what they’re late for now.
It seems nearly everybody wants everything right now. And you
damned well better stay out of their way!
Are we losing our ability to enjoy life, even here in
this beautiful little corner of God’s green earth?
“Yes,” would be my answer, “we are losing it.”
It’s taken me many years to learn how to live now. And I
still have to occasionally remind myself to do it. I used to spend
most of my waking moments thinking about what I should be doing
the next moment, the next hour, the next day, the next year. It
was ridiculous! I rarely got to enjoy the present moment.
We’re so fixated on what’s going to happen 10 minutes
from now, 10 days from now, 10 years from now, we no longer live
in the present moment. And yet that’s all we have.
Today news literally flies around the world in seconds.
No one with a computer is shielded from the planet’s problems.
We’re so focused on all our global and personal problems, all the
distractions, rushing here and there. Few of us are doing anything
else, certainly not being in the moment, “smelling the roses.”
Here’s Chief Joseph.
“Smelling the roses” — that’s a beautiful image because,
for most of you, roses represent love, goodness, pleasure and
passion. All the experiences you want to have in your lives —
Yet you allow yourselves to get so distracted, so drawn
away from, what you really dearly want for yourselves.
Why do you do that?
Well, we have a few theories. But, basically, what it all
comes down to is what John said — there are too many, far too
many, distractions you allow to pollute your pleasure, the
pleasure of being in a physical human body at this time in your
Friends, this is such an exciting time to be physically
alive on your planet. There has never been a time like this, a
time when so many of you are waking up and wondering “What is it
There is so much happening, so much intensity, it often
totally blindsides you. Two perfect examples of that are your
so-called “global recession” and the swine flu scare. You have so
many forces at play on your planet today. So many conflicting
ideas, so much confusing information, so much “bad” news — all the
stuff that can go “wrong.”
Yet nothing is going wrong. Yes, you’re undergoing huge,
earthshaking changes. But change is always a good thing.
Change means you’re growing, you’re evolving. Which is one reason
you incarnated to begin with.
You’re obsessed with having everything right now. You
know the attitude we speak of — “Okay, we’re changing. Let’s just
get it done and over with.” (You’ll never get it done, by
You’ve lost, or are quickly losing, your ability to have fun.
Yet fun, in our perspective, is what it’s all about.
Life is supposed to be fun!
If each one of you focused on fun — having more of it in
your lives, helping others have more of it in theirs — you could
transform your troubled planet into paradise on earth.
But you cannot have fun if you’re obsessed with all the
distractions, disasters, and dramas in today’s world.
Those distractions, disasters, and dramas are the
realities others are creating for themselves. There’s absolutely
no reason you have to follow in their footsteps.
You can create lives of absolute bliss and abundance. But
there’s a catch.
To create that life of your dreams, you must go within.
And stop giving your attention to the “without” — everything “out
We’re not saying to withdraw from your world, to “bury
your heads in the sand.” We are saying you have the power
to create a different world for yourselves. And to thereby help
others create a different world for themselves.
But — a big “BUT” here — all your power is in this
present moment. Absolutely all of it!
So be here now. BE in the present moment. BE you. Take
time for smelling the roses.
