Reflections of Mato Gi-The Rhythm of Our Lives

We must move with a certain rhythm in our lives: A surge of energy and activity in the pursuit of our vision and in service to others, then a time of renewal-Time in solitude and openness with ourselves and with our Creator, whence comes our renewal. This equips us to move forward in solitude and discover real honesty within ourselves and with others.

The women use to hum and think good thoughts when they prepared their meals believing those good thoughts and their consciousness of their place in the universe would be passed on to the ones who consumed their food. It is in the consciousness of the rhythm of the Creator's song that we are conscious of our places in the web of life. We are not greater than nor less than any other life form. We came from spiritual origins and we are on our way to our spiritual destination.

The rhythm of the earth is heard in outer space. It is the Creator singing to His Creation. He has looked down to see if there were any who did understand and seek Him. We, as a people, red,yellow, black or white lived our worship in tune with the rhythm of the earth. It is said the day would come when the true worshippers would worship the Creator in spirit and in truth. The song heard in outer space is Spirit. Our drums and songs, flutes, and chants were in coordination and cooperation with that rhythm. The manner of worship taught to the Ghost Dancers was in tune with this rhythm. There are those among us who can hear the Creator's song and the songs they sing are a reflection of this consciousness. Redemption and reconciliation are critical to us all, so that we can return to that place of harmony, balance and center. Harmony, balance and center can only be realized when one is in the place where they can feel and hear the rhythm of creation. Every living thing, except man, live out there lives conscious of the Creator's song. Somehow we, as human beings, became separated and distanced ourselves from this consciousness. That is why the earth reels under the onslaught of pollution and the degredation. It is said the Creator made man upright, but man sought out many inventions. Man was and is not satisfied with what the Creator has provided.

Walking alone has taught me to walk with others... In solitude you become aware of the many who remained with you in spirit...  In honesty it is humbling to greet your own 'shadow' who carried many burdens & raruraru; which inspired a need to survive...  Would choice take me down the same path?  Survival for self included survival for others... continual learning teaches me forgiveness enables a healing heart; anger channeled correctly as a gift/source can become a burst of energy which enables positive change...  The rhythm of self resonates the rhythm of whanau, whanau resonates the rhythm of all who came before...  As said to a cousin my branch to the tree of life remains until all whakapapa has gone and 'mankind' has chosen to do nothing... Aroha is a healing we all deserve and need to sustain a planet we have forgotten to karakia to, waiata for, show gratitude...  I know in my heart where my rhythm will eventually return...  Mauri ora

Aho!! And once we tune into this rhythm...messages and confirmations start coming in so many different forms...I find that many messages I have received lately are through the internet...or even as I drive along the highway and a hawk hovers then dives just as my car passes by...her outstretched wings...Wado Beloved Dekshi

This is good and true. There is also a rhythm in the universe that resonated through our spirits as we lived in consciousness and respect of all life and life giving things. I have heard it said that when the first satelites were located in space they were able to hear an echo throughout the universe. Our connection was established in the beginning in creation when we were all part of the gardern of the Great God. In these last days this Great God has labored to reestablish our connection with creation and the rhythm universe by manifesting Himself in Jesus Christ. Those who abused us sexually and physically in the boarding schools identifying themselves as Christians, were not and left us wavering in the wake of their perpetrations. The United States would dare to present itself as a Christian nation despite their attempts to exterminate us under "Manifest Destiny." They have our land and we have their Book and I have discovered in studying the Book, that they lied.....
