Dear Editor:

Deer teaches us to use the power of gentleness to touch the hearts and minds of wounded beings who are trying to keep us from spirit.

Like the dappling of a fawns coat, both the light and the dark may be loved to create gentleness and safety for those who are seeking peace.

Stop pushing so hard to get others to change and love them as they are!

Please find the gentleness of spirit that heals all wounds, for you may be projecting your fears and anxieties onto others.

Stop courting your fear and creating internal demons of negative ideas.

Force is not always the best method.

Respect the gentle deer and realize the fear is what you own.
