Dark Garden

I once had a garden filled
with flowers of dark thoughts
but they needed constant attention to grow
& one day I decided
I had better things to do.

We are Flowers of the Earth

Ancient Native Hawaiian Saying "Na Pua O Honua" (we are flowers of the earth), The people, and the fragrance is their personality of each one. Different yet sweet and intoxicating. Through that fragrance we spread our Aloha to all of creation. Aloha is the behavior taught to us by the creator so we can live in harmony and sweetness with each other. Mahalo.... Kauila

Everything on our Earth is alive

"In the Indian way, we are connected to that flower if we understand its spirit, the essence of its life." --Larry P. Aitken, CHIPPEWA

Everything on our Earth is alive.
Every rock, every plant, every animal, every tree, every bird,every thought is alive. This is true because everything is made by the Great Spirit and the Great Spirit is alive. We need to slow our lives down each day and realize, consciously, that this is true. First we need to realize it, second, we need to acknowledge it, third, we need to appreciate it and, finally, we need to go on.
Great Spirit, let me see life through Your eyes.
Today let me be alive.

The Spirit Wind

Every breath we take brings God within us.
God is ever present within our being.

We don't have to look for God outside,
God is within us.

Gen 2:7 And Jehovah God formed the man out of dust from the ground,
and blew into his nostrils the breath of life;
and man became a living soul. (LITV)
