The Creator gathered all of Creation and said :

"I want to hide something from the humans until they are ready for it. It is the realization that they create their own reality."
The eagle said, "Give it to me, I will take it to the moon."
The Creator said, "No. One day they will go there and find it."
The salmon said, "I will bury it on the bottom of the ocean."
"No. They will go there too."
The buffalo said, "I will bury it on the Great Plains."
The Creator said, "They will cut into the skin of the Earth and find it even there."

Grandmother Mole, who lives in the breast of Mother Earth, and who has no physical eyes but sees with spiritual eyes, said, "Put it inside of them."

And the Creator said, "It is done."

:cool:

The simplicity of these older traditions is simply profound!

I attend a Sioux (Lakota)/Cherokee based sweat lodge several times a year, for about the last 20 years, at one location in particular, but there is another. I started this participation in 1987, where it was exclusively Lakota. My recently completed crystal sphere stand, which is the foundation of my Alchemical altar, is made from wood taken (gifted) from that land and was from trees downed by Sandy.

I consider my experiences with Lakota (and Cherokee) traditions an integral part of my Alchemical path.

If I were to put it in the simplest of terms, I was tossed out of the laboratory at an early age and "told" (compelled) to go work on my spiritual aspects first for a little while ... something like forty years.

Getting back into the lab, it's all making pretty good sense.

By the way dev ...

(More in the spirit of a light-hearted inquiry)

I agree with your remark on "profound."

However ...

What happens to a person when that "profundity" becomes normal?
