Within the Temple

(Written February 10th, 2014)



O’ Great Spirit, 
help me always to speak the truth quietly, 
to listen with an open mind when others speak, 
and to remember the peace that may be 
found in silence.
~Cherokee Prayer



Within this temple
sacred direction stretch forth
east, south, west and north
Within this temple
sacred protection perceive
only divine thought conceive
Within this temple
sacred correction believe
character flaws behind you leave
Within this temple
sacred connection interweave
a spirit-soul-in-personality identity 
Within this temple
I honor you, Father Sky
you give life to every being alive
Within this temple
I honor you, Mother Earth
for all the wondrous beauty you birth
Within this temple
may Great Spirit-wind flow
let me ever walk the good red road
Within this temple
there is only and ever–love

spirit-soul-in-personality, emerging as one…
