The Blanket of Hope


Uncle John, Iroquois Elder:

"There is a river flowing now very fast. It is so great and swift, that there are those who will be afraid. They will try to hold on to the shore. They will feel they are being torn apart and will suffer greatly. Know the river has its destination. The Elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open and our heads above the water. And I say, see who is in there with you and celebrate."

"At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally. Least of all ourselves. For the moment that we do, our spiritual growth and journey comes to a screeching halt. "

"Banish the word struggle from your attitude and your vocabulary. All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration."


Phillip Deer, Arapaho Elder:

"The time of the lone wolf is over.
Gather yourselves!"

"We do not say thank-you to each other. We say "Palamya" and thank The Creator..."


Victor Lopez/Sky Eagle, Chumash Elder:

"Whatever you do in your spiritual practice, just do it with honor and respect. Then it is up to you and your Creator and isn't anyone else's business."

"When you work for the light, you will draw an equal amount of negative energy to you."

"You can tell how much good you are doing by how hard they try to stop you."

"Take heart, you are not alone. The veil that separates the Elders who have gone on before you will be at their closest to you at this time. You need but to reach out and ask, 'how may I serve?', and they will come to support you."

Twylah Nitch/YehWehNode, Seneca Elder, Wolf Clan Medicine Lodge:

"It is good to ask yourself on a regular basis, 'How am I adding to the chaos and confusion?' "

Archie Fire Lame Deer:

"Concerning the Sweat Lodge. It is not the event in our life which causes us pain, it is our resistance. And so, when the heat of the stone people comes to you, do not try to escape. Lean in towards the heat. Bring the heat to you and say 'thank-you' and the power of the rocks will never burn you and the pain of your life will never defeat you"


Marianne Williamson:
