The Blessingway

by Patricia Anne Davis

Blessingwayhozhooji: a ceremony to awaken one to natural order (hozho); choosing constructive and life-affirming choices; healing from intentions and decisions that destroy oneself and others.

Navajo ceremonies do not require a conversion process of taking away the precious child within the natural order, and replacing this spiritual SELF-identity with a deficient self-image that has to be re-mediated to some desired end state of progress.

Once awakened to the natural order, we begin living the loving wayhozhooji: literal translation of the blessingway ceremony as translated by my paternal aunt. It is a way of living in reverent revolution, of making decisions that are constructive and life affirming.

Two main ceremonies: Protectionway and Blessingway

These two main ceremonies offer protection from contaminants like the maladaptive emotions of hate, jealousy, anger, guilt, fear, etc. and toxins from the environment.

Five major ceremonies: As five-fingered people, this corresponds to five major ceremonies that every child in the world could benefit by.

  1. Blessingway: the blessing way honors the divine feminine as a nurturer.
  2. Protectionway: divine masculine as a protector-provider.
  3. Purification and cleansing: numerous with specific names for specific purposes.
  4. Spiritual renewal: a nine-day ceremony for spiritual renewal.
  5. Journey to spirit world: the ceremony for a person on their journey to the spirit world.

Altai throat-singers

These gifted young people are part of a renaissance of the sacred Altai culture, playing traditional instruments and throat-singing in the ancient style. These musicians, and several others that we  and others are assisting, come from families that are utterly without financial means, and a $30/month stipend is a godsend for them. Please e-mail Carol if you feel called to contribute, especially on an on-going basis.

Most of the singing is done by Viktor, sitting on the right. He is an 18-year-old student of music at the local college. Listen to him shift from his normal voice to the deep drone, and also to the overtone singing, which sounds flute-like.

He is playing a topshur, a traditional 2-stringed instrument.

Alan and Aylana, on the left, have just now graduated, finishing their formal education. They are married with a three-year-old daughter. Alan has been regularly winning contests, and is going to France in July to begin his international career with a contest there. Some of your contributions into Altai Mir University’s fund for sustainable traditional livelihoods helped him get there.

Alan is playing a topshur and well as the bowed instrument called an ikili. Notice the extraordinary horse-head carving above the tuning pegs. Aylana plays the humuz (mouth harp) and topshur. They both sing as well.

Before and after France, the musicians will work as volunteers to build two cultural centers near Tyungur this summer — a public one for children’s camps and facilitating sustainable traditional livelihoods, and a secluded one as a meditation and healing center at which they will use the throat-singing for vibratory healing.

Please excuse the fact that each song is in a different file. My internet connection here in Altai was not steady enough to allow me to upload them as a single movie.

Enjoy!!!

Patricia's Graphic for the Ceremonial Change ProcessOpen vs Closed System

To the left, you will find a graphic representation of the transcendence that occurs when the Closed System of Disease that is designed for failure is re-framed into the Open system of the Natural Order during the Ceremonial Change Process.

The first thing to understand about the Navajo language is that it is spoken in an Affirmative thinking system within the natural order as described in the examples of time and cardinal direction correlated with blessing way principles moving clockwise.

Typically, English is spoken symbolically in a triangle and in a different thinking system.  It is in the context of hierarchy, patriarchy and describes everyone in their deficient self-image, which must be re-mediated into some end-state of civilization or enlightenment.

English is abstract.  It is a trade and commerce language.  Navajo is descriptive and exact.  Therefore, healing ceremonies are exact and actual in the natural order, which is not religion, philosophy or theory.

There are four phases to every healing process that leads to curing, not coping.  Before defining them, one must know that the healing process does not exist in the English language thinking system, but it can be described to convey the integrity of the sacred meaning of Navajo words.

The term “Navajo” is an imposed name.  We Dineh have several spiritual names that identify us to the creator as a precious child of divine creation, made of earth-physical, water-emotive, fire-mental and air-spiritual.  Corn is the symbol of food as social medicine within the economic relationships of the clan system.  Our spiritual names are inclusive and universal in application to all people. One name is “earth-surface people”, another is “five-fingered” people and another is the affirmation: “I am a precious child of creator”.

Consequences of Closed System Thinking

When a person makes decisions that are destructive and death-producing, this is considered misuse of thinking by using thinking for what it is not for.  All ceremonies correct erroneous thinking that “tell” the body wrong information.  Every out-of-balance condition is a consequence of saying “yes” to destructive and death-producing choices and saying “no” to constructive and life-affirming choices.

When a person denies the unifying principle that all creation is Inter-related, this is “stress”.  All of the diseases are a consequence of denying our oneness with the creator’s will-to-love.  All Navajo healing ceremonies reawaken a person to their true spiritual Self-identity as a precious child of creator made of the four sacred  elements: air-spiritual; fire-mental; water-emotive; earth-physical body.  When any one of these elements is out of balance, there is dis-ease with creator’s will-to-love that manifests as disease.

Living Hozho, in the Natural Order

The Navajo language is a spiritual language spoken with living words that manifest vibrations for affirming truth in the laws of nature or the natural order of time and direction from East-thinking, West-planning, South-decision making for collective survival and North-equity in restoring resources to the next generation moving clockwise within temporal time and cardinal direction.

For example: sunrise, mid-day, sunset, mid-night; spring, summer, fall, winter; child, youth, adult, and elder.  Also, white people, red people, yellow people and black people, all born equal in the sacred circle of life within the holiness and wholeness of hozho.  There is no concept of separation from creator or from the natural order.  There is only the principle of making constructive and life-affirming choices.

Daniel and Carol in the Caucasus Mountains in 2004, wearing the crocheted clown noses that are Daniel's hallmark.

Daniel Brower is a global lightworker whom we really need with us in Altai. Not only do we need his can-do presence and ever-ready, harmonizing crystal bowls—we need his sacred masculine energy in our otherwise all-goddess trekking group.

Until a few days ago, we all thought his funding was set. His Russian visa, and his ground travel and food in Russia have already been purchased.

But Daniel’s expected funding fell through. To come, he needs either the frequent flier miles or the $2000 for his air ticket within the next week or so.  Those of you who helped get Navajo wisdom-keeper Patricia Anne Davis to Altai will be glad to know that she is now fully funded. I know we can get Daniel to Altai, too!

Are you an Altai Angel, or are there “manifesting” angels in your circle who might feel called to help? If so, please contact Carol and/or donate on our website. 100% of your donation goes to Daniel’s travel fund.

Here’s the magical story of my connecting with Daniel:

Ceremony at the top of the southern-most mountain of the Urals -- perched between Europe and Asia -- with the Svet Center group playing Daniel's crystal bowls.

When I met Daniel in 2003 as he was changing planes in Seattle, he had received guidance from Spirit that he was to distribute sets of seven crystal bowls (tuned to harmonize the seven main human chakras) to nine sacred sites around the world for a global harmonization ceremony on the fall solstice in 2004.  He had been given the names of the places, and was proceeding to find angels to donate both the bowls and his travel costs. (See www.circleofsound.org)

In 2004, he was ready to bring bowls to Russia, as guided. Trouble was, Russia is a big place, and the name he had been given was Agarta. He asked for my help, and I turned to my “Moscow family” that comprises the Svet (Light) Center in Moscow—mystics all! They told me that Agarta is the “mythical” civilization that exists INSIDE the Earth.

Daniel confessed that, yes, the human harmonization WAS for the purpose of connecting with the beings of Inner Earth. That was mind-expanding info, but still didn’t provide an address to which to deliver the bowls. Undeterred, we used the newly available Google maps to find a place in Russia that was actually called Agarta, an ancient archeological site down near the Black Sea at the mouth of the Don River.

So, in August 2004, off we went—two manifesters of magic from the Svet Center (Lena and Rainbow), Daniel, and me—on a wild expedition via train, foot, and automobile angels through southern Russia, visiting caverns and ancient dolmons, looking for a place that resonated. We found many.

To give an example of the magic, one morning Lena went out to the street to find a car to take us to a remote site. The director of a local factory stopped—only because his vision was bad and he thought that Lena was his daughter, flagging him down. He took that as a sign and abandoned his work for the day, gleefully transporting us, stopping only to treat us to fresh local fruit and meals. In the evening, he took us to his home, where his extended family surprised us with a feast and impromptu concert. The place we visited that day was the site eventually chosen for the solstice harmonization celebration.

The bowls were left in possession of the Svet Center group, who traveled south for the fall solstice harmonization, and have been continuing to harmonize with the bowls ever since. Daniel, of course, has continued to distribute crystal bowl sets, most recently to Israel.

With such magic, you see why Daniel MUST be with us in Altai! LET’S MAKE IT HAPPEN!!!!!

UPDATE:  June 26.  Daniel has received enough funds to ensure his participation in the sacred Altai Fellowship journey this summer!  Thanks to all the Altai Angels!

Below is the transcript of a presentation I gave in early June ’11 at the 2nd International Anti-Corruption Conference at the Siberian Academy for Public Administration in Novosibirsk. I acknowledge my gratitude for Patricia Anne Davis’s generosity to the world in general, and to me specifically, with some of the core information in this presentation. I am also grateful for the wise editing by Maia Rose and Karah Pino, who astutely commented that the viewpoint regarding wholeness is not the exclusive realm of Indigenous people, but includes any nature-based culture.

It is always such a pleasure to be here in Siberia!

I would like to introduce myself, to give some context to what I have to say. I am a cosmic citizen on a spiritual path of a very practical nature—to help humanity awaken to our intrinsic power to create our own destiny—for clean environment, ethical governance, fulfilled populace.

I am not an official or an academic or an expert about corruption. I am a generalist, and as such, it is my gift to bring together disparate ideas and see the overarching patterns. As I have been exposed to sacred Indigenous cultures globally, I have come to believe that the “natural order” that they seek to sustain is, in fact, what mainstream society is now awakening to. Thus, I see their spiritual technology—their ancestral wisdom—as the practical vehicle through which our world can be truly healed.

To demonstrate one such technology that is readily accessible to mainstream thinking, I have structured this paper according to the “Ceremonial Change Process” as shared by Navajo wisdom-keeper Patricia Anne Davis. The steps in this process are: naming the out-of-balance condition or root cause; emptying or venting the sickness or disharmony; re-framing the situation using our inherent wisdom; coming up with a co-creative solution; and applying the solution to real life.

Naming the out-of-balance condition and root cause
The pattern I see is that the current global system is the corruption, because it separates us from direct connection with our intrinsic knowing.  We are wrapped—and trapped—in an artificial, materialistic world:
– working (if one is “lucky” enough to have a job) for “money” whose worth can be decimated by decree,
– entertained with fear-mongering propaganda called “news,”
– fed (especially in the United States) with genetically manipulated and poisoned foods and medicines,
– breathing poisoned air and drinking poisoned water,
– educated with “science” that is almost totally beholden to corporations,
– waging (again, especially in the U.S.) incredibly costly wars of aggression against civilian populations.

Emptying or venting
Why is this happening? I look at who is reaping benefits. Multinational corporations and banks, outside of the laws of any country, consistently benefit. And the uber-rich also consistently benefit. I was horrified to see, as Communism collapsed, the assets and resources of people of Russia divided among a handful of oligarchs.

Following the inspiring reports from the Central Asian delegates about their efforts to draft laws that minimize corruption, my heart aches to hear that, on the other hand, they are inviting in “foreign investment”—which is thinly veiled parlance for raping the land, destroying local ecosystems, and displacing local economies by promising wealth. All over the world this is happening. I beg those of you in decision-making positions to consider the historical facts. It is the ultimate corruption: there can be no civil society when a people’s lands are confiscated and ruined.

At the end of our lives, what is a person’s real accomplishment? One’s integrity, peace of mind, and life-giving legacy. Physical death, as a gateway, tends to bring one’s perspective back into balance. But it’s too late, by then, to make the world whole again. In the current global system, the “whole”—the “holy,” the sacred—is not only a low priority, it is undefined. It does not exist as a tenable concept. As a small case in point, I understand that, when I presented this paper verbally, the translator simply skipped the word “sacred” each time I used it—it was apparently nonexistent for him, and thus nonexistent even in my effort to communicate with you, within the global system.

Frankly, within the current global economic system, corruption is not fixable. Usury, at the system’s core, corrupts intrinsically, because it is fundamentally designed to divide and exploit rather than steward.

Reframing within our inherent wisdom
As Albert Einstein said, “Problems cannot be solved at the same level of awareness that created them.”

So, at what level of awareness can the problem of corruption be solved? Under “natural order,” defined in the Ceremonial Change Process as an open system with the basic tenet of “power with” rather than “power over,”  leadership serves not only for the welfare of the people of today, but for the next seven generations as well. In such a system, it is “corruption” that is undefined.  This is the sacred foundation of Indigenous cultures worldwide.

But wait, aren’t we told that Indigenous peoples are uncivilized? How convenient it is to declare that those whom we exploit and dispossess are unworthy. But, of course, because their sacred way illuminates the short-sighted unsustainability of our dominant, dominating global culture, it has been denigrated or made invisible.

For the past five years, I have been working with the Indigenous Altai people and with Native Americans to help them strengthen their sacred cultures, primarily through fund-raising/awareness-raising campaigns that provide seed money for traditional land rights and sustainable traditional livelihoods, but also through international leadership exchanges involving both youths and adults.

Thus, I am at an interface between the dominant society in need of healing, and ancient indigenous wisdom that has the tools to facilitate the healing. Indigenous spiritual technologies can help us reclaim a paradigm in which corruption is moot, because people are actually, practically motivated by abundance, love, and life, rather than want, fear, and death.

I should clarify: I call the wisdom “ancient” because the hereditary lineages are ancient. However, the wisdom is not a body of learned, intellectual knowledge as taught at universities in the dominating culture. Rather, it is a way of being—a connectedness with “all that is”—the natural order—that is so open and profound that any aspect of the entire historical, cultural experience/essence is directly available through the wisdom-keeper. The key is that the wisdom-keeper knows how to access it.

Some may think that I idealize Indigenous people. Certainly, I have great respect for my Indigenous friends, but I don’t idealize them. Rather, I treasure and share their mission of using their locally adapted tools to create “power with” communities. All over the world, Indigenous lineages of wisdom-keepers have maintained their sacred roots, in the face of sustained and continuing genocide.

Remoteness seems to have somewhat protected Indigenous wisdom-keepers until recently. In Europe, centuries of witch-hunts exorcised the wisdom-keepers and effectively severed European people’s direct connection with the natural order. Nonetheless, through the twentieth century, the direct connectedness has begun to re-emerge on the fringes of the dominant culture, especially with what are called the “indigo” children. And a good example from Russia is the Anastasia phenomenon.

Sadly, most Indigenous societies have now been corrupted by “divide and conquer” promises or the horrific double assault of alcohol and exploitative religions, or even more insidiously, by the need to feed their families when their lands are taken and ruined. Many have bought the fairytale that their millennia-old communities are not really sustainable. But somehow, in Indigenous lineages, wisdom-keepers have held on, carrying forth a living, practical, integrated yet locally specialized template for wholeness.

Manifesting a co-creative solution
The Ceremonial Change Process paradigm holds that there are two minds—the life-enhancing “natural order” and the death-producing “spirit of hindrance.” Just as the conception of “sacredness” is absent in our death-producing global culture, “corruption” is absent within the natural order.

The Ceremonial Change Process is an elegant pathway out of our closed dysfunctional system into the open “natural order.” The process itself is the co-creation of a solution. Its five simple steps—naming the out-of-balance condition or root cause, emptying or venting, reframing within our inherent wisdom, manifesting a co-creative solution, and applying it in real life—belie the extraordinary power of the process. For more information, see the interview or the video.

The Ceremonial Change Process is only one of many such locally adapted but globally useful processes, being preserved and protected within Indigenous cultures worldwide. Coming out of my Western European mainstream heritage into my personal life-work of bridging between Native Americans, Siberian Indigenous cultures, and mainstream society, the glimpses that I have been given into sacred Indigenous cultures have been awe-inspiring. I urge those of you who are still living within your Indigenous culture to seek out the wisdom-keepers among you, and to reconstruct your society on that basis—locally adapted and intrinsically free of corruption.

Applying the solution in real life
You, because of the nature of your work, are agents for change in the dominant society. You are powerful people, and you succeed with what you set out to do. As such, your focus on creating the practical mechanisms of the change allows the old paradigm of corruption to simply fall away.

I am glad to hear how many of you organize your programs around “building society” as a way to prevent corruption. Of course, we all want to prevent corruption, but we can actually end it, by curing our global society, rather than just coping with the inherent corruption. Davis defines curing as “reawakening to one’s spiritual identity and inherent wisdom.” As we continue to awaken individually and consciously base our efforts within the “natural order,” society itself shifts.

I remember the period of glasnost here in Russia in the late 1980s. I was in Moscow then, not here in Siberia, but I imagine that the feeling was similar here: There was such hope—that it was time for the NEW RUSSIAN—the evolved human.

Those now known as the New Russians are not exactly what we had in mind. But I’m not pointing fingers at Russia – it’s a global situation. However, the New Russian—the evolved New Russian—does exist, and has only gotten stronger.

So I say, let’s
– name the out-of-balance condition or root cause,
– vent about it,
– reframe it within our inherent wisdom,
– manifest the co-creative solution, and
– apply the solution in real life.

It’s so easy to think, That’s impossible—we’ve always failed. But that’s not really true. Some things have failed and some have succeeded.  And we learn as part of the process. I suggest that it is not the rule of law that has failed, but rather our underlying perspective. The laws and systems themselves only have the power of the human energy that is poured into them.

I propose that peace, justice, and human welfare are not directly functions of any governmental system—that governance can only bring these forth when they exist as the primary moving force of the human population.

Gatherings like this conference are part of the success story. Let’s build on this! We can focus on re-instituting the “natural order,” so that everything that leads to corruption—fear, greed, hate, suffering—is cured.

Oh, I know—that’s unrealistic.  Or is it? What of the wisdom in the sayings, “you can serve only one master,” and “you cannot make peace while preparing for war.” A healthy society cannot be made by fighting. Even if it is corruption that you are fighting, it’s still fighting. Words are important—they are the voice for the concept. Put your power into words that promote harmony and life.

So, I invite you to hold yourself in the sacred mind as you continue all your amazing work, and empower yourself with the egregor* of human hope. To quote the Bible, “leave the dead to bury their dead,” and step forward into an ancient, but always new, life-enhancing, “natural order.”

Sacred Indigenous wisdom teaches that wholeness is the true opposite of corruption.

A Ceremonial Change Process designed for the Altai Fellowship

by

Patricia Anne Davis, MA Choctaw-Navajo/Chahta-Dineh May 22, 2011:Tucson, AZ

Purpose of My Travel to Altai Siberia, Russia

I am an authentic Indigenous medicine person by tribal lineage, initiation, training and experience. I was previously invited to travel to Altai Siberia, Russia a few years ago, but that trip for cross-cultural exchange was cancelled. In the years between then and now, I have actively participated in Altai Mir University fundraising events, for the Indigenous Altai people’s intention for maintaining their aboriginal land status, in a small but powerful way. Also, I facilitated a spiritual connecting ceremony with the land and people of Altai and with the organizers and sponsors of this upcoming trip.

I am a person who has held wisdom and knowledge for a lifetime regarding a universal process of healing that leads to curing, not coping at any level, including cosmic-planetary interaction with divine beings who are the guiders of humanity. In this light, the timing for me to travel to Altai is appropriate to fulfilling worldwide Indigenous prophesies about re-balancing spiritual human intention within the natural order for accelerating a remembering and reawakening to harmonious living on mother earth for collective survival.

The Teaching

The following information is organized within the four phases of an authentic Indigenous Ceremonial Change Process.  Authenticity brings authority because truth is the only real power and truth is our protection of all that is sacred.  The current tyranny in the world is being dismantled by the following unifying principle for collective planetary survival: powerwithin is for powerwith others in order to eliminate powerover others. 

Living the loving way, as a way of life, is a reverent revolution that re-frames inequity in resource distribution away from the forced-choice purchasing of the products and services that support the financial rich, into using one’s inherent gifts for the benefit of each person, their family, community and nation from elder to the youth of the next generation.  The spiritual lesson in these crisis times and awakening of the conscience is that win-lose decisions create no-win for everyone.  Thus, each person is requested to learn why and how to make decisions for win-win, away from destructive and death-producing choices, toward constructive and life-affirming choices.

The portal opening expedition and the global grounding of the released energy have been organized within the four phases of the Ceremonial Change Process. We are currently using the process both intra-personally and interpersonally, as well as extending it externally to our global mission. Even though group members are in service to the good of humanity, they are still in a process of curing themselves by changing their thinking system from Eurocentric to natural order. Thus, the general descriptions of the steps apply to them.

I. Naming the out-of-balance condition
The core issue is the root cause that maintains the out-of-balance condition. The core issue for the Altai Fellowship pilgrimage is essentially the same both internally (personally and as a group) and externally. It is the process of awakening that all of humanity is now undergoing.

The core issue is that the construct and language—the thinking system—of every political governing and religious organization throughout history are designed to oppress and enslave people through hierarchy and patriarchy using powerover. They control the world’s resources by manipulating thinking. This destructive intention, which uses technology and information with brute force, has been destroying the four sacred elements on the planet: earth—physical, water—emotive, fire—mental, and air—spiritual well being.

Thus, the four “corn-pollen footsteps”7 that represent the reverent revolution in Dineh tradition (child, youth, adult, elder) are distorted and delayed. Delay of human service to creator, to self, and to what is good, beautiful, and true for women, children, and elders—causes suffering. The masculine gender’s life task as protector-provider is corrupted to perpetrator and sexual predator in the home, the community, and in the government. Even people of good will get stuck in this system, because it is a closed system and they are born into it.

II. Emptying the obstacles that maintain the root cause
The Eurocentric dualistic thinking system utilizes the concept of consciousness, which results in seeing reality as relative to a person’s perception. Thus, each person perceives his or her own perception as right, and fights for his or her rights and religion from that perception. People polarize into adversity, conflict, and war. Curing, as a thought reversal, is reframing from consciousness and perception to conscienceness, in which Indigenous wisdom and knowledge are exact in the natural order. Then there are peacemaking and co-creative solutions.

All Indigenous prophecies—known for centuries—predict that the time of silence and persecution of Indigenous people (who have the wisdom and knowledge of healing ceremonies that lead to curing, not coping) has ended. This is a time of awakening to conscienceness and for breaking silence about exploitation and victimization, which are immoral suppression of a person’s soul purpose and life mission.

The divine plan for remembering our sacred place in the universe and reawakening to being humane is to restore the knowledge of cooperation and collaboration between spiritual beings and Earth’s humane beings. People who heal suffering are humane. This cooperation will reframe destructive and death-producing choices.

All healing occurs when decisions are made to correct thinking from destructive and death-producing choices to constructive and life-affirming choices. This is holy thinking, and it is the only appropriate function of thinking. Thinking that is not for a holy intention is a misuse of thinking. Conscience in this context means the use of thinking for what its proper purpose. Conscience manifests wisdom and knowledge within the natural order (and not consciousness and perception).

The “new group of world servers” (a metaphysical concept from the writings of Alice Bailey), of which the Altai Fellowship is part, is called to change the vibration on the Earth plane to love and peace by learning and teaching how to heal through win/win constructive and life-affirming choices. An awakened person is one who has liberated him- or herself from a deficient self-image. This person knows that spiritual awakening does not require a remediation process toward some distant end state of enlightenment as taught in an inverse thinking system. Every person is already equally “fore-given” a true spiritual self-identity as a precious child of creator.

III. Re-framing into the natural order
The “new group of world servers” that is now meeting and organizing to restore planetary balance and harmony is fulfilling its members’ soul purpose by grounding and anchoring spiritual energies. This is what the members of the Altai Fellowship will be doing.

The divine guides of the human race inspire us toward a collective remembering and reawakening of our true spiritual self-identity as precious children of creator in order to fulfill the divine plan on Earth. When we reclaim our inherent divinity and know our sacred place in the universe, we can manifest wisdom and knowledge in the natural order. We then understand the unifying principles that operate to eliminate the need for powerover, not only in political empires, but in our own lives.

VI. Manifesting co-creative solutions
A liberated person can access accurate spiritual information by revelation from his or her own soul and from telepathy with divine beings. Thus, the Altai Fellowship is guided in their activities. A liberated person knows that the interconnectedness of the etheric network is designed to redeem the energies that are held in human destructive intentions. The redeemed energies are released to be used for healing.
When we operate in the affirmative thinking system, we are operating in conscienceness. Indigenous knowledge and wisdom lead to experiencing reality as exact, because the context of spiritual living is in the natural order, undistorted by individual or group perceptions. Instead of conflict, there is group consensus and spiritual morality in win/win decision-making for collective survival and abundance. The trust that is exists as natural order enhances the strength both of group members and the group as a whole.
V. Life application of win/win decision-making for universal practical application of co-creative solutions
We are inspired and guided to restore trust and serve creator, self, and others with powerwithin, to have powerwith the divine in the universe. The way to have powerwithin, and thus have powerwith others for congruent win/win decision-making, is to intend, visualize, affirm, and manifest win/win constructive and life-affirming choices with our sacred self-identity as precious children of creator.

There is a Glossary of Dineh terms translated into English on my website.

From  Altai Fellowship Trekker Alline:

Good Morning All,

When a very sweet young friend heard about my trip to Altai, she gave me a copy of this poem. She’s seen it every day of her life as it’s hanging in her family’s bathroom. She thought it might be good for me too.

And I thought I’d pass it along to you.
with love,
Alline

Mountains should be climbed with as little effort as possible and without desire. The reality of your own nature should determine
the speed. If you become winded, slow down. If you become restless, speed up. You climb the mountain in an equilibrium between restlessness and exhaustion.

Then, when you’re no longer thinking ahead, each footstep isn’t just a means to an end, but a unique event in itself. This leaf has jagged edges. This rock looks loose. From this place the snow is less visible even though closer. These are the things you should notice anyway. To live only for some future goal is shallow. It’s the sides of the mountain which sustain life, not the top. Here’s where things grow.

But of course without the top you can’t have any sides. It’s the top that defines the sides. So on we go . . .

Robert Pirsig,
from Zen & The Art of Motorcycle Maintenance
