The divine orchestration of the unknown…

Life is Sacred….May we all return HUM.

The road into Hopiland and the mysteries that unfold there are reminder that beyond the veil of our perception there are energies that support all life on this planet. I have been deeply connected to Hopi on many different levels since I was a child and the “unseen”, years ago, Grandfather lead me back here. The Hopi and their ancestors continue to hold my attention, teach me and extend the opportunity to serve the Hopi Way. I have learned from some of the last of the traditional leaders and seen for my own eyes what it means to live in spiritual harmony with the earth and our fellow HUMANS. By listening more, speaking less and finding a humble heart…I have witnessed what is possible and accessible to all when living the Hopi Way. It is a simple life and one that is still being practiced, in what feels like another world, at Hopi.

“The Hopi are deeply religious people living by the ethic of the Hopi Way, Maasaw’s Way through peace and goodwill, spiritual knowledge, adherence to religious practices, and responsibility as Earth stewards. The Hopi culture places great value on family cohesion, stability and generosity, humility and respect, a work ethic of self-reliance, and valuing and honoring the needs of the entire community. In Hopi culture, giving isn’t charity. Giving and helping are embedded in spiritual and cultural ceremonies, as well as the normal routine of daily life. The Hopi people share with others because it helps to make the community stronger. The cornerstone of the Hopi Way is an initial idea, a ritual plan, and a prayer for success.

Among the Hopi, to give (maqa) has been at the heart of our society and social compact since time immemorial. The honor of giving means respecting and honoring both the giver and the recipient. In Hopi culture, giving is reciprocal, binding individuals and groups to each other and the spiritual realm. Work is a gift based on kinship and gender. Hopi people build their homes with sumi’nangwa, all together, and nami’nangwa, mutual concern for others welfare. The very cornerstone of Hopi society is the exchange of mutually beneficial gifts, and relationships reconfigured by those exchanges. Gifts are communications in a language of social belonging.

“Horizon…

Run my Son
Run my Daughter

Go and Fetch Your Cornmeal Pouch
Run across the vastness of Mother Earth
Run beneath the brightness of Father Sun

Go and Bless Her and Him
For Another New Day
Be One with You
Be one with Yours… ~Farow Suly, Hopi”

kindness medicine service

Kindness Medicine. Service.

A simple way to shift your state of being is to be in service. When you redirect your attention to kind actions (without expectations for something in return) your entire state of being will shift. That which is occupying your heart, mind, body and soul will suddenly be ‘UP’ lifted. Everyday we have the opportunity to help another. In addition each day you or someone else might be faced with doubt, fear, depression, anxiety, and a multitude of other reasons to suffer; however, kindness and service are simple direct medicine that will assist you in eliminating all your suffering. There are cultures all over the world that naturally focus on being of service to each other. Rather than having a ‘me’ first attitude take a walk on the wild side and put someone else before you. See how it feels. Finally, if you are in a place where you cannot even give to another, this is a sign that you need some support. Find help immediately, there are many including myself that are here to help. Simply put be of service and free yourself and another.

As inspired, take a few moments today to give a random, anonymous act of kindness.

Service…This is a remedy for clearing the mind, heart and soul. The movement will nourish the body, mind, heart and soul. The action of going and helping out, leaves you with feeling good and empowered.
