Trail of Tears - day 5

May 7, 2019

 

 

The next two days have been emotional. I can barely write. The written history is soul disturbing. I meet living people along the way at our camps. Camp hosts. Good people. Ignorant people. People who still believe that christianizing and civilizing the Cherokee was a gift.

 

 

 

I travel on. I gather stones. I make more stone altars. I make my prayers before them. To honor what has been lost. To honor what has been preserved.

 

 

Grateful for my tribe. I honor what has been preserved. May this journey deepen all things sacred in me. Like the streams coming from the mountains, May it be never ending in me. May that well spring be my inner life. Strong body. Lucid mind. Clean spirit. May it be so for me. May it be so for you. May it be so for all. Sister MorningStar

Help support our cause! 

In our modern world, it is not easy to let what is natural be natural – to honor a knowing that existed before we did. It is even more difficult to preserve it. If it is not preserved within us, it will not be preserved in our families and communities, our policies, our hospitals, our schools or our nations. Most importantly, it becomes lost to our future generations.

 

Your contribution helps sustain the Holyland and the Spiritual Retreat Centre for Instinctual Living. The Centre offers programs of education and spiritual direction specifically for midwifery, childbirth, wellness therapies, yoga, as well as personal and collective spiritual retreats.  

 

We are a diverse community and I, the founder, am a woodland Mystic of Cherokee ancestry. I place all donations on my altar in Rose Cottage to receive a blessing of return for your happiness, health, wealth and holiness. If you send a donation, please include a love note.  

 

“I promise to live, in ever growing awareness, a life of simplicity; to give more than I take and to quiet the mind to single and simple purpose; to live with the knowledge that I am the temporary guardian of all I possess and to stand ready to share when love calls.”
