Something Wonderful

Earth Prayer

“Grandfather, Great Spirit, once more behold me on earth and lean to hear my feeble voice. You lived first, and you are older than all need, older than all prayer. All things belong to you — the two-legged, the four-legged, the wings of the air, and all green things that live.

“You  have set the powers of the four quarters of the earth to cross each other. You have made me cross the good road and road of difficulties, and where they cross, the place is holy. Day in, day out, forevermore, you are the life of things.

Black Elk, Holy Mn of the Oglala Sioux

    You are the spirit. You are Word. You pre-existed in the void with nothingness.
    You are love. You are Grace. Your omnipresence fills all emptiness.
    You are wisdom. You are Source. Your energy: your sovereignty harnesses.

    Then the big bang banged, and the formless became existence.
    Then the void and emptiness exude beauty and abundance.
    Then the darkness is veiled by the light. Then life ventures into an experience.
