"If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” -Matthew 17:20
As I was rounding a turn on my bike on a country road, I was surprised at a safe distance by a large porcupine. Rarely are these magnificent animals seen. One to always thank God for these encounters, I looked up the symbolism for the porcupine. The sweet Porcupine is a gentle vegetarian who walks a quiet, solitary path. At first glance, the 30,000 quills on such a small, cat-sized body seem fearsome (and a bit out of place), but Porcupine prefers keeping those bristles down; and avoiding unwanted and unnecessary fights makes the Porcupine a symbol of passivism.
Another message from Porcupine Spirit Animal is living life with joy and in simplicity. People often complicate their lives, and, over time, it robs them of many pleasures. You are being gently reminded not to get caught in the chaos of the adult world where fear, greed, and suffering are commonplace. The focus here is on faith and trust and the knowing that you can move mountains with these powers.
