A compassionate community will not be achieved only through prayer; I pray myself, but I accept its limitations. We need to take action to develop compassion, to create inner peace within ourselves and to share that inner peace with our family and friends. Peace and warm-heartedness can then spread through the community just as ripples radiate out across the water when you drop a pebble into a pond.

Deep Insights/Deep Reflections
  • SILENCE — Finding a quiet place in your heart
  • SPACE — Making room for the Creator to speak in your heart and life.
  • SEEING — Seeing the Creator’s work and creation and being thankful: The Creator is more than we can see or know.
  • SUFFERING — The Creator knows our suffering, troubles and heartaches and will aid us to learn from them in honesty, respect, and humility.
  • TOUCHING — Touched by the Earth and its creatures. Praying for those who touch hearts in both joy and distress.
  • LISTENING — This is a most important aspect of prayer. We are to listen and learn. The Creator is more willing to speak to us than we are to listen.
  • FACE TO FACE — We see the Creator in all that we do and see. We are stewards of each other and the creation. What we say and do, counts.
Prayer is about generosity, humility and respect. It is great openness to the Creator’s love to us, you and me. We are not to be modeled by the world around us, but to be continuously growing in our spiritual life. My own grandmother knew this. She and the elders have passed it on to us.

Wakan Tanka (Great Spirit),
teach me how to trust
my heart,
my mind,
my intuition,
my inner knowing,
the senses of my body,
the blessings of my spirit.
Teach me to trust these things
so that I may enter my Sacred Space
and love beyond my fear,
and thus Walk in Balance
with the passing of each glorious Sun.The Sacred Space is the space within you
Where the mind, heart and spirit are one
To Walk in Balance is to have Heaven (spirituality)
and Earth (physicality) in Harmony.image shaman by LLPrindle ©2008

I love this!

“I was once told that prayer is where I speak to God and meditation is where I listen to Him. . . and since I have two ears and one mouth I should therefore listen twice as much as I speak…!”

MOON SONG

MOON SONG

The beauty of her silvery glow
Brings magic to the night.
The enchantment slowly spreads and grows,
To everything in sight.

But to my heart the music sings
Far brighter than the light,
Calling to my very soul,
As it flitters through the night.

I hear it on the gentle breeze,
Her melody is haunting.
It whispers softly through the trees,
The rhythm of it taunting.

The music dances on the air,
Calling me to take flight.
Oh Grandmother, hear my prayear,
Sing your Moon Song for me tonight.

Meditation is the emptying or concentration of the mind through contemplation or relaxation.

Meditation is a personal celebration of the wonder of the universe–and the cultivation of our capacities for awe and amazement at “all that is”.  It involves the unity of self and all beings, mentally, physically, emotionally, spiritually in the humble recognition of oneself as one small but valuable part of the total.  It is the whole involvement of you, being captivated and excited by the marvel of it all.

To see meditation this way is to recognize other human beings, the earth and the entire universe as sacred and valued.

It means that every single person, entity, and animate object on the planet is to be treated as valuable, deserving of love, respected, and honored as being unique.

The souls journey begins by first loving, respecting and honoring ourselves as the unique being we are knowing that we are not perfect, thus allowing ourselves to grow and change.

Meditation is a unique process for every unique human being.  In order to honor your own personal journey through life you may want to use the following two suggestions to begin your journey to experience the wisdom and wonder of you.  Centering and progressive relaxation can guide you to the peace, love and beauty of the silent mind which is unique to you.

These two processes can be used to ready you for positive affirmations, giving thanks for all that you have, prayers, manifestation of change and movement in your life or whatever you choose for you.

Enjoy your journey.
