"Tale of the Jumping Mouse" was one of those stories. It resonated deeply with the Heart of the Matter for me. Stirred to the core, my heart chakra opened through a torrent of tears. (Those were the days, huh.)
With the help and guidance of other creatures, through repeated acts of courage and the willingness to serve others again and again, Mouse developed his Medicine as Jumping Mouse. In the end, (or perhaps, the beginning), Jumping Mouse became Eagle.
