7 comments on “STANDING ON SACRED GROUND

  1. It has certainly gone on for thousands of years re: wars being fought for land, and as you have stated, for reasons too numerous to even begin to define. Indeed, we have become a nation of twisted words, stumbling over our own thoughts, until ‘double-speak’ sounds reasonable, and if pursued over a period of time, becomes a believable truth. Seems to me, those who consider themselves to be ‘liberators’, enjoy the manipulation of their own people; weaving in and out between silence and just enough truth, “sugar-coated” with lies, to write those autobiographies, initiate long, slippery walks, and pull the wool over the eyes of those who are ignorant enough to believe them. It’s been a merry-go-round of denial for long enough. These so-called ‘liberators’, cannot even conceive in their minds, our long held traditions of the sacredness of the earth, the spoken truth, and the honoring of our women. We’re certainly in a sorry state. On a more positive note, it only takes one person to make a positive change in someone’s life. That’s where it begins.

  2. Tank you very much Rezinate- I am so happy and proud I am one of those who can read your words. You spoke out my heart and my thought I speak in my language to my people: What is above-it is below – WE ARE reflection of heaven on earth- so we shall make it Heaven again. Together- men and women, with equal rights to feel,think,speak, learn,teach,work and have fun laughing, singing, dancing. With no poverty, humiliation, fear and ill will anymore.

    This Divine Garden, Sacred Land- it is not in some one spot on earth- but WHOLE Earth is Creator’s Sacred Land 🙂
    And there’s no need for “better” world- as we can see how making Creator’s work “better” mislead us and put us in this golden cage called “technically advanced civilization” which made us weak and lonely alone.

    All we need is to go back to good world- as it was given us on our beginning of being here. 🙂

    And all we need is love and respect, trust and faint in each other together, just like we are, with all our good and bad, right and wrong – unity in diversity to learn our best from each other and take PROPER care about this place we been GIVEN as home, to be best guardians and carers – for ALL that surrounds us:)

  3. A long time for the people since any have spoken words such this, words that
    have the power to shake our spirits and caress our hearts at the same time.
    Saying thank you is not enough, but we want you to know they rezinate and we
    will not forget them or this floor of heaven our feet touch.

  4. Kind words one and all-food for thought as well, and I appreciate
    them as I do each of you for the person you are.
    Interesting to me that it is the women who are always the first
    responders, women who have the subtlety of spirit and compassion
    that often times lends itself to a deeper understanding, an
    understanding that we as men too often lack or brush aside in the
    pursuit of other things.
    Neither should we forget that the land is composed in part of
    the blood of our ancestors- men, women, and children, that alone
    would make it sacred.

  5. We’re trying our best to heal the Sacred Circle, so that it may be whole again. We’lalin to Rezinate, stonefeather, meoquane, and jess. It certainly is a fine balance, within our own minds and hearts, how the Creator calls us to fulfill our personal responsibility. As Rezinate says “keep punching” for what you believe to be the truth. I find myself to be one who keeps punching, and I honor those who are called to be healers. There is the balance.

  6. “Every part of all this soil is sacred to my people.
    Every hillside, every valley, every plain and grove – has been hallowed by some sad or happy event in days long vanished.

    The very dust you now stand on – responds more willingly to their footsteps than to yours, because it is rich with the blood of our ancestors – and our bare feet are conscious of the sympathetic touch.”
    — Chief Seattle

    And agreeing with all my heart with Chief Seattle – I speak exactly same thing about MY homeland, my native motherland of my forefathers – for which I am indigenous 🙂

    “Treat the earth well, it was not given to you by your parents.
    It was loaned to you by your children.”
