Kristin Verby – Unity – Mitakuye Oyasin

I was led to this prayer. It is important to say aloud and acknowledge if you have the understanding. I acknowledge now out loud and for All Time my relation to All things and to the Great Spirit/Wakan Tanka that is and allows all things to be. I am thankful you have brought me these words and this spirit to bring into the world. In speaking these words as I write them, I add my spirit to the All spirit and sing my note to myself with All things. I call for you help in this wayward place to remember I am the Light and the Light is Us. I desire to live in love in this awareness when I move on.

This is a Lakota Sioux prayer of Oneness and thanks and acknowledges harmony with all forms of life. It acknowledges that we are related to All things. I acknowledge that now and forever. I desire to be a Real Human Being. The old things are new again. We need the guidance of the old ways now at the end before a new thing can be birthed. As a midwife. A birth practiced so many countless times awaited by countless generations.

Within our grasp now.

We were not ready to hear this from our relatives when it was spoken, we are now. Thank you to the Sioux nation. I have heard your words. They are fine good words. They are burned into my soul now…

Aho Mitakuye Oyasin/All My Relations

I will do what I can to be compassion in this backward place. Help me. To all others, I ask you to find the reverence for your ancestors and relatives in the world around you. Serve and love life. The increasing quality of our hearts and capacity to love is all creation seeks and desires.

To the Creator, for the ultimate gift of life, I thank you.

To the mineral nation that has built and maintained my bones and all foundations of life experience, I thank you.

To the plant nation that sustains my organs and body and gives me healing herbs for sickness, I thank you.

To the animal nation that feeds me from your own flesh and offers your loyal companionship in this walk of life, I thank you.To the human nation that shares my path as a soul upon the sacred wheel of Earthly life, I thank you.

To the Spirit nation that guides me invisibly through the ups and downs of life and for carrying the torch of light through the Ages. I thank you.

To the Four Winds of Change and Growth, I thank you.

You are all my relations, my relatives, without whom I would not live. We are in the circle of life together, co-existing, co-dependent, co-creating our destiny. One, not more important than the other. One nation evolving from the other and yet each dependent upon the one above and the one below. All of us a part of the Great Mystery.

Thank you for this Life.

Say and live this with me and we shall stand up together as One in our own Light.

Aho!

Aho!

Aho!

Simple Truth

If you love All

As yourself

We will be fine

If you live only

For yourself

We’re fucked

Pretty simple

Fear or Destiny

image

Sometimes you just have to squeeze your butt cheeks together,  yell “F*ck it!” and jump or yell whatever you feel is appropriate. I think we all get that chance in our lives at least once to do this when it matters the most.

Did you jump when it came time?

Will you?

No telling how many chances you will have. I will do what is asked and required of me and then I will get out of the way.

That’s what a good Taoist should do. Though, I’m not a Taoist, but that is sound advice to keep your ego in check when you need to turn your mind off…and jump.

I’m not anything and I am everything I found.

Literally in both cases. That is all awakening is meant to do in the end. Help you accept you are part of something much larger than yourself. Then you get dissolve like a wisp of air.

Fun.

Into what, well, take your pick of opinions or go look for yourself. A wisp of air can change the destiny of the Universe as the wings of a butterfly.

How wonderful to learn and feel that. I wish all could. They will in the end. They have to. Things will be balanced, all opposites unified. Who could hold one back who knew truly what they are and what their destiny is as a Human? Has someone told you who you are or did you go and find out? Because that is the most important part of this game.

You have to be what you are. When in doubt, go with the flow and just act naturally.

Awakening to your part of the whole allows you to act like a real Human irregardless of your identity, your desires or even your safety and well being at the right moments in life.

You have to be ready for that one moment sometimes!

You may only get one shot in your life. Everything tries to prevent you maybe from the one thing you were meant for. The one goal you needed to score or note you needed to sound to keep the music playing in harmony. No one may ever know what you did or who you are.

When you accept you are part of All and that you are limitless, then you can become love in action for the sake of All. If someone limits you, avoid them. If someone lifts you, spend all the time you can with them. You have to know one person can change it all. You can hear the song all those notes across the ages and ones today are singing to us. They are showing us the road to our Best Possible World.

To know your Self you have to submit your self to something bigger than your self. You are not separate from the Universe. You are the Universe. What you see playing out in the sky describes what is happening inside of yourself. There is no ego in union with All. Call it destiny, we all have the same one, in union together, finally.

Will you fear the loss of your self or will you embrace the destiny of All when the time comes?

No time like now.

“If The Way
were about being
a student of something,
it wouldn’t be alive in the world.
It lives because certain people
say to themselves, “All this
teaching is just for me.
I am the living
expression
of this.”

This isn’t arrogant.
This is humbly keeping the buddhas,
Lao Tzu, Lalla, Rumi, Suzuki, Bahauddin,
Yuanwu, all of them, alive in the world.
Only you can accomplish this.
You are the only one.”

                     – Wei Wu Wei

Humility is not thinking less of yourself, it’s thinking less about yourself.

Journey Over Water

changes inside
the heat and Light from within
licking gently at my sanity

on soft boil
feels Divine
time slowing to a crawl

to be hard boiled
supple yet firm
a snack for some lucky Dragon

the skies are dark
yet i push my little skiff
along with what strength i have

quiet days and nights
memories of playing children
blue glow on the Horizon guiding

i must always remember

i am never alone
forever may I float above and below
I will not fear the dark within

No Separation

There are many ways to the Truth.

As infinite as the number of human hearts

that have and will be. We are all conduits to it.

There is no separation between us.

None. Merge. Become. Be.

Infinite Love.

All special.

Every

One
