Elder Doug’s Words

Enjoy the scenery as you move along the River of Life. Pull your canoe up to the shore from time to time, pick and eat some berries and taste the sweetness of Creation. Take your time and don’t hurry. Play a Flute…or a Drum….Rattle…play Guitar, any instrument….a radio even….make some Music. Each moment is important and full of meaning, worthy of attention. Just like the painter/artist who can see the finished picture in their minds eye, before it is even started, see the your World, in the colors of Healing. See it, to receive it….The Voices of Earth and Sky, meet together in your Heart. Hear what they have to say. Follow where they will lead. Seeing is more than meets the eye. Listening hears with more than ears. Love Travels between the Worlds, like Sweetgrass and Music. Deepen Your Laugh and Smile lines, they are Beauty. Drink Deeply of the Magic that Surrounds You!! Keep Dancin!!!! Doug Luzar Facebook

Out of the Silence, a Voice… a Singing…The Song of the Dawn…the Earth sighing, the Sky breathing,… Voice of the Earth, Voice of the Sky,… Harmony…All in between resonating in unison, of One Heart, of One Mind…that is the Dream to Dream into our shared reality. Whatever you do today, do with Love. It can be Seen, Felt, Heard and Tasted….The Voices of Earth and Sky, meet together in your Heart. Hear what they have to say. Follow where they will lead. Seeing is more than meets the eye. Listening hears with more than ears. Love Travels between the Worlds, like Sweetgrass and Music. Deepen Your Laugh and Smile lines, they are Beauty.

Elder Doug’s Words

We are taught by the modern world to be *independent*, when there is literally no such thing as independence. The “self-made” person, is only self-made in their own mind, they don’t “see” or recognize all the help they have received on the way. Life is a Circle Dance. An InterdepenDance, if you will. Each individual Circle Dancing together within the Greater Circle of Life, each moving and touching each other in the Dance of Living, each Relating to the Other, and each Dependent upon the Earth and each Other for Life and Living. With a Thankful Heart, I am Grateful for the points where Our Circles touch….The Voices of Earth and Sky, meet together in your Heart. Hear what they have to say. Follow where they will lead. Seeing is more than meets the eye. Listening hears with more than ears. Love Travels between the Worlds, like Sweetgrass and Music. Deepen Your Laugh and Smile lines, they are Beauty.

Natural Law will have it’s way. There are no lawyers to skirt around the edges of it, to avoid the consequences of our actions. The Plants and Animals do not need us, we need them. Without us, the Earth would return to Balance, to Harmony. Nature would restore the balance and Sacred relationship between Predator and Prey. The Water would once again run Clean and Pure. The Air would become Clean again. Fire would burn and purify what needs purifying, so New Growth could occur. The Forests would once again reclaim the Earth, and the Earth would once again become whole…wHoly and Sacred. All our Ancestors had this knowledge. It is time to return to Old Age Wisdom. Love is the not only the best, it is the only Medicine to heal the Earth today. “Let Your Love Flow, like a Mountain Stream, and let Your Love Grow with the smallest of Dreams, and let Your Love Show, and You’ll Know what I mean…it’s the Season….” Larry Williams…..The Voices of Earth and Sky, meet together in your Heart. Hear what they have to say. Follow where they will lead. Seeing is more than meets the eye. Listening hears with more than ears. Love Travels between the Worlds, like Sweetgrass and Music.

Send Prayers this Day, for the Past.
(Spiraling to the Center, I Dance…. )
Help to Heal all the hurt that has went on here, on this Earth, our Mother.
(….toe, heel, toe, heel….)
All the injustices done in Gods’ name.
(….toe, heel, toe, heel….)
All the hatred, and anger.
(….I catch shadowy, ghostly glimpses….)
Heal the Land. Heal our Hearts.
(….of half seen Dancers….)
Let the Healing carry on into the Future,
(….Dancing beside me….)
where our childrens children
(….at the edge of my vision….)
will benifit from it.
(….fading in and out….)
Let us Learn,
(….as I dance here….)
lest we Forget, and repeat.
(….fading in and out….)
124 years ago today, a group of Lakota had met to Dance. Dance for the Past, for Healing. Dance for the Present, for Healing, and Dance for the Future, for Us….500 soldiers from the 7th Cavalry went about un-arming the appx. 350 Lakota, of which the majority were Women and Children, of the 120 possible Warriors, many were Elderly. A single shot was fired, in the air, by a deaf Indian, who didn’t understand…and the 500 soldiers, of the 7th Cavalry,who had already set up 4 Hotchkiss guns the day before, in preparation for this massacre opened fire. A cowardly act of revenge for Custer. 28 of those cowards received Congressional Medals of Honor….and the Dancers stepped out of the Dance in this physical realm. Where their Feet are Dancing now is a Good Place to Dance…..half close your eyes, and see them Dancin still…. Listen….
(….on the Edge of a Vision….)
….hear the Drum,
(….fading in and out….)
….and the Sound of Many Feet still Dancing. Live your Vision!! Let us Learn, lest we Forget, and repeat.

Tradition is the Voices of the Ancestors, Gifting us with their experience. Living Traditions are vibrant and changing, to meet present needs and future needs, yet still remain recognizable. The oldest parts remain, because they have been tested over Time, and like an Old Tree, their Roots go Deep, and they have been proven to Work. That is what keeps a Tradition Alive, the ability to adapt, and evolve as we do, and yet retain its’ Integrity. Culture shapes us, Tradition feeds us. The Voices of Earth and Sky, meet together in your Heart. Hear what they have to say. Follow where they will lead. Seeing is more than meets the eye. Listening hears with more than ears.
