Peace for your Path...

"peace. it does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. it means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart." (unknown)

a beautiful prayer for Grandmother Earth which I just received via email.....


>A letter from Chief Arvol Looking Horse
>(Present Chief and Keeper of the Sacred White Buffalo Calf Pipe of the
> Lakota, Dakota, Nakota Nation of the Sioux)
> Gulf Coast Oil Spill - Sioux Prayer Request
> ****** A Great Urgency ******
> To All Nations
> My Relatives,
> Time has come to speak to the hearts of our Nations and their
> Leaders. I ask you this from the bottom of my heart, to come together
> from the Spirit of your Nations in prayer.
> We, from the heart of Turtle Island, have a great message for the
> World; we are guided to speak from all the White Animals showing
> their sacred color, which have been signs for us to pray for the
> sacred life of all things. As I am sending this message to you, many
> Animal Nations are being threatened, those that swim, those that
> crawl, those that fly, and the plant Nations, eventually all will be
> affect from the oil disaster in the Gulf.
> The dangers we are faced with at this time are not of spirit. The
> catastrophe that has happened with the oil spill which looks like the
> bleeding of Grandmother Earth, is made by human mistakes, mistakes
> that we cannot afford to continue to make.
> I asked, as Spiritual Leaders, that we join together, united in
> prayer with the whole of our Global Communities. My concern is these
> serious issues will continue to worsen, as a domino effect that our
> Ancestors have warned us of in their Prophecies.
> I know in my heart there are millions of people that feel our united
> prayers for the sake of our Grandmother Earth are long overdue. I
> believe we as Spiritual people must gather ourselves and focus our
> thoughts and prayers to allow the healing of the many wounds that
> have been inflicted on the Earth. As we honor the Cycle of Life, let
> us call for Prayer circles globally to assist in healing Grandmother
> Earth (our Unc'I Maka).
> We ask for prayers that the oil spill, this bleeding, will stop. That
> the winds stay calm to assist in the work. Pray for the people to be
> guided in repairing this mistake, and that we may also seek to live
> in harmony, as we make the choice to change the destructive path we
> are on.
> As we pray, we will fully understand that we are all connected. And
> that what we create can have lasting effects on all life.
> So let us unite spiritually, All Nations, All Faiths, One Prayer.
> Along with this immediate effort, I also ask to please remember June
> 21st, World Peace and Prayer Day/Honoring Sacred Sites day. Whether
> it is a natural site, a temple, a church, a synagogue or just your
> own sacred space, let us make a prayer for all life, for good
> decision making by our Nations, for our children's future and
> well-being, and the generations to come.
