Apache Blessing


May the sun
Bring you new energy by day,
May the moon
Softly restore you by night,
May the rain
Wash away your worries,
May the breeze
Blow new strength into your being,
May you walk
Gently through the worlld
And know it's beauty
All the days of your life


They certainly knew a thing or two
Those native Americans.

    Esra, how ironic that the term 'primitive' has been coined for native American Indians and our aboriginals in Australia (among others) when their wisdom and understanding of nature and the dream time shows us just how uncivilized our so-called civilized nations really are. I love this piece and the dignified authority of its message. Perhaps I might add another: 'Only when the last tree has died and the last river has been poisoned and the last fish has been caught will re realize we can't eat money.' A wonderfully uplifting read. love, Allie xxxx (Report) Reply

    A spiritual blessing, as only those in touch with nature can give. Similar to Aborigines, as well. People of the earth....... A nice reminder, Ez, that there are some things which money can't taint.

    That's beautiful sweetheart. Can I substitute 'Ez' for 'the moon' and 'at your beck and call even if he has to come home from work' for 'by night'? :) t xxxx (Report) Reply
