You have to be able and willing to maintain the Donkey.
Indeed, you have to be prepared to feed the Donkey,
to Love the Donkey and to create a space for the Donkey.
Then you and the Donkey will come to understand
your purpose in being together,..
and intuitively know when it is time to journey apart...
The most important thing when you buy a Donkey
is to treat each moment as a sacred gift,..
even the not so pretty moments ,..
like the smelly moments or the 'Bessy" moments/days....
I tell you friend, wholeheartedly,
if your Spirit leads you to buy a Donkey,.. TRUST IT,
letting go of expectations and agendas,...
so that you and your beautiful golden heart
will be open to receive what already IS,...
ps. Take heed,.. there are those who would look upon such a
sacred companion and only see an ass.
