    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.
