Life Among the Wild Dandelions
by Chief Joseph and John Cali
Another weird article title from
yours truly. But if you’ve been with us very long, you ought to be
used to that by now.
Almost everywhere I’ve lived in this lifetime, I’ve had
wild dandelions all around me every spring. Wyoming is no
exception. I love dandelions, even though most folks consider them
pesky weeds. The flowers are pretty to look at and, believe it or
not, they make great wine. The leaves are delicious as a salad
with a little olive oil and vinegar, or as steamed greens.
This year I realized something else about dandelions,
something I never noticed before. Their bright yellow flowers
disappear every evening when the sun goes down, and reappear the
next morning at sunrise. Sort of like sunflowers. What a beautiful
natural rhythm of life! They “go to sleep” at sunset and “awaken”
at dawn. Yet I’d never noticed that before.
I began to wonder what else in my life was hidden from
me “in plain sight” because I wasn’t paying attention.
Here’s Chief Joseph.
Many of you go through your lives not noticing all the
good, all the beauty “hidden in plain sight.” People sometimes
tell us they see little or no hope for the planet or the human
race. They see only doom and gloom, only the dreadful fate they
know is awaiting all of you — like a time bomb about to explode in
If you pay too much attention to what others are saying,
you’ll begin to believe that dark scenario. You’ll begin to
believe it’s real. When you keep thinking the same thought, again
and again, it becomes your belief. When you keep strengthening the
belief by thinking the same thought, it becomes your experience of
the world you live in.
There are many worlds, one for each of you, depending on
your focus. Yet, from our perspective, your planet has never
seemed more beautiful, more abundant, expanding as it is into a
higher vibration with each passing moment of your awareness.
Friends, you live amidst some of the greatest physical
splendor we have ever seen anywhere in the Universe. Yet so many
of you simply don’t appreciate, or even see, all that splendor —
like John with the dandelions.
One of you once said, “Take time to smell the roses.” In
other words, don’t rush through your lives obsessed with all your
“responsibilities,” with all the “bad stuff” out there.
Take some time to separate yourselves from the intensity
and “busyness” of your world. Take some time to enjoy the silence,
to go within to the deep well of peace and power within all of
When you do that, you will rediscover the fact that you
create the world out there. The world out there does not create
your experience — you do.
As we’ve said before, a happy life is an inside job. You
create a happy life from within. The only guarantee of a happy
life is reclaiming the power within, and not allowing your
happiness to be determined by what or who are “out there.”
Once you begin to do that, you will start noticing how
beautiful your world is, how beautiful other people are, how
beautiful you are. You will no longer be living among the wild
dandelions, oblivious to their beauty and to all the other beauty
and splendor surrounding you.
