Last night I dreamed a dream.
I saw many hoops of all colors of the rainbow gathering together. First they formed the 'flower of life', the pattern, I am told, all of creation is built upon. No matter where I looked on the flower of life there was no beginning or ending. Wheel after wheel of interlocking circles creating this beautiful form.... And suddenly the circles separated into many hoops, each one containing a different colors from the rainbow. For a while they acted as though they were separate from each other, but as I watched, they slowly came together, each still in the shape and form of their hoop, but in a beautiful interlocking circle.
I am reminded of Black Elk's vision.
"... I looked ahead and saw the mountains flashed all colors upward to the heavens. Then I was standing on the highest mountain of the them all, and round about beneath me was the whole hoop of the world. And while I stood there I saw more than I can tell and I understood more than I saw; for I was seeing in a sacred manner the shapes of all things in the spirit, and the shape of all shapes as they must live together like one being. And I saw the sacred hoop of my people was one of many hoops that made one circle, wide as daylight and as starlight, and in the center grew one mighty flowering tree to shelter all the children of one mother and one father. And I saw that it was holy."
from Black Elk Speaks as told through John G. Neihardt
In my dream I felt the deep inner knowing, that the nations hoops were gathering. The wisdom of the grandfathers were bringing them together...and knew that many others from many nations were feeling the same way.
