"It is time for us to light our pipes as one, in prayer for understanding and healing."
Ted Silverhand


For the past several days now, we, along with millions of others in every country, have watched in horror, the mass destruction of part of our civilization. We have viewed some of the most gut wrenching news video of chaos and death so defying and putrid we can almost smell it. Our hearts are pulled as we watch our brothers and sisters struggle for survival as bodies of their loved ones float down flooded streets. We are amazed as young and seasoned police officers with broken spirits, leave their brothers and sisters on the force to search for their own families. We light our pipes in sacred ceremony and offer prayers for those who have lost the fight and for others who are left in brokenness.

Yet, in the midst of complete darkness and utter devastation, arise heroes with inhuman strength who come to help the weak and assist the discouraged. We felt a sense of pride and respect when we saw the police officers and fire fighters of New York begin to arrive in New Orleans and Mississippi. These were the same men who had already endured the 9/11 tragedy just four short years ago this very week. They were there to help their brothers and sisters win the fight. Joining them was the Mexican Army driving across the borders for the first time since the 1800's to do whatever they could to help us. There are countless stories of survivors helping each other. People opening their homes, teachers opening their arms and healers doing their work with amazing strength and love. Perhaps one of the most moving stories was of the young six year old boy who was leading a host of younger children he didn't know, by the hand, to safety. He watched over each of them until help finally arrived.

Heroes of every shape, size and colour have begun to emerge from everywhere. Race and religion are not noticeable now. How much money one has or how large their house may be is of no consequence. For the moment, political persuasion is not considered for love is all that really matters. Love heals broken spirits and gives one the courage to survive, to rebuild and move toward the future with confidence that the sun will shine eventually and better days are just ahead.

As we look inward, all of us have had tragic losses in our lifetime. There are more to come. The ancient prophecies say that there will be much death and destruction upon this earth. Weather experts tell us that weather patterns will become more severe. Some of us will choose not to go on any farther. We will choose to stay right where we are in our darkness and depression. Others will refuse to give up no matter what comes before us. We will not give in to being a victim because we know that life is still worth living. We choose it to be that way. We have more love to give because we know that love can change the world......no matter what has happened.

In love, we send a call to all our beloved readers. It is time to light our sacred pipes in prayers for our sisters and brothers who are struggling. It is time to renew our commitment to praying for others and offering them love from our own spirit. It is time to pray for Mother Earth as she writhes in pain for the way we have treated her. It is time for us to ask for strength and for love so that we may all be healed.



...always know that you are never alone and that the Great Mystery walks beside you and is with you on your journey.
