Speaking takes muscles, listening takes a lot more……
I greet you all with a humble heart and a warm hand shake from the people who sit in council above our understanding.
Treasured wisdom produces a sacred bloom that is known to warm the hardest of all souls. It is a special time to commune and give songs of peace on these days for our MOTHER EARTH has given life and we must celebrate and drink the maple of the harvest of this time.
Share our pipes and stories, return to the old ways of trade.
By giving tobacco, deer and buckskin…Furs of all kinds and even things we made from our hearts because we are so full. For we want to hear the message of THE ONE WHO GOES BY MANY NAMES in the Four Winds and always respond in OUR hearts for our answer is always:
“THANK YOU CREATOR, for giving me Mercy. Laying me down, teaching me how to hurt, so I can heal, only through you….”
Listening is an art that must be perfected. For it gives our mind the opportunity to be filled with good intentions, and our Grandfather heart can teach us to be intuitive and it can be molded to walk as THAT ONE who leads us so we can be carried further to understand the things that can only be seen in a higher view.
This is healthy, which promotes happiness and gives good teachings to our next seven generations.
For generosity is the fulfillment of the sacred children who will one day pass on this compassion that will produce respect which is also a good medicine, to give to those who carry the wise teachings, that know our ceremonies and dances which are part of the Natural Laws given to all the TRUE HUMAN BEINGS.
To be in quietness and instruct those who want to be on this holiest of all roads that is known to take MUCH strength to continue and seek patience. To be in quietness means that you are humble enough to know that you control nothing!
For man cannot ride in two canoes and paddle upstream against the flow of the current on the fluff of the clouds. Not unless instructed.
For we live many lives and only die once. And to die is a sleep so we may rise up in the other WORLD. This is Wisdom shared so we can blossom and bear fruit to the knowledge which is given to us – from the Circle which is Sacred.
And all those who bring their sacred objects to this place must hold hands with all life , and remember these principles, so we can focus on the core – which is to listen – because it is the strongest who will do so…..
These are my thoughts…Walk in beauty…
