History and geography books say that the rivers of Turtle Island — North America — are divided in their flow by the Continental Divide. The backbone of the great Rocky Mountains rises up, and the waters flow to the east and to the west.
The Elders teach that the waters flow as gifts from the Creator. They cleanse and nurture. They rage and they touch gently. They give life to every living thing … just as the blood of the body flows from the heart … through the arteries, veins and capillaries, carrying nutrients and oxygen to the farthest points of connection.
The second of the Sacred Principles is Love and Compassion. This place of Love — toward the South along the curve of the Medicine Wheel — is the time of nurturing, of seeking joy. It is the time of remembering to play.
The Ancient Ones said that one who does not love himself is incapable of loving another.
You love yourself by becoming aware of your place … by choosing to fill that place to overflowing with all of your Being.
Consider this week’s quote:
Open your heart and mind to this great Season of Growth and Expansion — and walk in joy with the Summer sun … as it flows across the southern sky.
Breathe in the strength of the Wind that brings the Thunder Beings. Rest in the grace of the shade from the great trees of the rooted nation.
Play in the moment of this rich season. Hear the rhythms of your heart — those rhythms are like no other — unique, beautiful and strong.
Come sing with us! When the Eagle Flies is a collection of Native American music, celebrations of symbol and spirit … a reminder that “We Are All Connected.”
Life IS love! Enjoy it!
