"A Cherokee Feast Of Days"..........December 29
- A Cherokee Feast Of DaysA very long time ago, among the pages
of words written by ancient men is a phrase so
potent it still works today. It says, "Call the things
that be not as though they were."
So life is hard and scary and you have
messed up miserably. Then change it by saying
what you want--by calling into being the way
you want things and circumstances to be. Your
words have power. They create. They shape. They
call into being what you want.
You have been digging in your heels and
declaring that nothing can be saved. Don't you
know you are doing it? Cancel everything negative
you have ever said--be truly sorry for it. And then
take hold of your tongue and demand it speak
You propose to give us land where we can live in
quiet. I accept your proposal.

Another whole world opens up when we close
our eyes and calm our mind. Be still and know;
be still and hear; be still and see; be still and
feel. Inside every person is a still, small voice.
Sometimes it is necessary to close our eyes to
shut down our perception in order to see. Try
this occasionally; when you are talking to your
child or spouse, close your eyes and listen to
them. Listen to the tone of their voice; listen
to their excitement; listen to their pain--
today, let me
hear only what
