    This morning I posted a prayer by Chief Seattle in my blog (Our One Light) and a video quoting him. I thought it was worth sharing.

    Not sure Native Americans belong in the pagan section, but I'm sure it honors this prayer and video as they are both deeply earth centered as Native American sprituality is.

    Wisdom of Chief Seattle

    Prayer of Chief Seattle

    Earth mother, star mother,
    You who are called by
    A thousand names,
    May all remember
    We are cells in your body
    And dance together
    You are the grain
    And the loaf
    That sustains each day,
    And as you are patient
    With our struggles to learn
    So shall we be patient
    With ourselves and each other.
    We are radiant light
    And sacred dark
    –the balance–
    You are the embrace that heartens
    And the freedom beyond fear.
    Within you we are born
    We grow, live, and die–
    You bring us around the circle
    To rebirth, Within us you dance
    Forever.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
