A Tribute To
Loving Pulse Readers
Here at 49°16 N & 123°07 W we are closing in on the Thanksgiving Day weekend. It is nicely coincidental that I planned this post for this time.
Although I usually post on Thursday evenings I can’t wait any longer so this one is launching a day earlier.
To start off, I want to share a fun passage that I read years ago and hung onto because I loved it so much…
If the Earth were only a few feet in diameter, floating a few feet above a field somewhere, people would come from everywhere to marvel at it.
People would walk around it, marveling at its big pools of water, its little pools and the water flowing between the pools.
People would marvel at the bumps on it and the holes in it, and they would marvel at the very thin layer of gas surrounding it and the water suspended in the gas.
The people would marvel at all the creatures walking around the surface of the ball, and at the creatures in the water. The people would declare it as sacred because it was the only one and they would protect it so that it would not be hurt.
The ball would be the greatest wonder known, and people would come to pray to it, to be healed, to gain knowledge, to know beauty and to wonder how it could be.
People would love it, and defend it with their lives because they would somehow know that their lives, their own roundness, could be nothing without it.
If the Earth were only a few feet in diameter.
Obviously the Earth is more than a few feet in diameter and thankfully, the blogosphere has given us the opportunity to connect from around the globe.
I wanted to list all my readers here but the list is long and so, to keep the length of this post manageable I chose to let the numbers do the talking.
On page 2 you will find a list of the top ten commenters on Loving Pulse where I have highlighted 20 posts from their blogs. You won’t want to miss reading such posts as “How to Be a Man and a Woman Both at the Same Time”, “Bye-Bye Birdie”, and “Was I Talking About You?”…
Please continue reading on page 2.
This is a poem that I wrote for a Cherokee Native American Elder.
The terminology explained below is my understanding from studying the Native American medicine wheel.
The medicine wheel symbolizes the journey we each take to find our own path in life.
Awahili – Eagle, sunrise, east, red, illumination, wisdom, vision
Wakananda – Great Spirit, centre, green
Waya – Wolf, high noon, south, white, family, truth, growth, happiness
Yanu – Black bear, sunset, west, black, introspection, courage, trust
Grandmother – Elder
Beauty Path – Balance, harmony, spiritual transformation
Starseeds – Evolved beings who assist in transformation of the Earth
Yunsai – White buffalo, midnight, north, pale blue, purity, renewal, freedom
