Namaste Peace Seekers. I’m fresh off the yoga mat and feeling so connected to Mother Earth that it inspired my free verse in my journal this morning and again here in the quotes by the insightful beautiful Black Elk…
Grown men can learn from very little children for the hearts of little children are pure. Therefore, the Great Spirit may show to them many things which older people miss.
There can never be peace between nations until there is first known that true peace which is within the souls of men.
You see, I had been riding with the storm clouds, and had come to earth as rain, and it was drought that I had killed with the power that the Six Grandfathers gave me.
And as he spoke of understanding, I looked up and saw the rainbow leap with flames of many colors over me.
And if the great fear had not come upon me, as it did, and forced me to do my duty, I might have been less good to the people than some man who had never dreamed at all, even with the memory of so great a vision in me.
And while I stood there I saw more than I can tell and I understood more than I saw; for I was seeing in a sacred manner the shapes of all things in the spirit, and the shape of all shapes as they must live together like one being.
I hope the words mean something to you because they sure do to me.
Meet me back here tomorrow!
