When We Stand In the Sacred Hoop Of The People!

Friend, do it this way.

When you stand in the Sacred Hoop of the People,

you must to be responsible

because you do not stand-alone.

Many others stand behind you,

depending on you, praying for your success.

Not only your living relatives but, also

those who have gone on to the spiritual world

and those who are yet unborn;

all of these stand with you.

And so when you stand in the Sacred Hoop of the People,

you must be responsible.

And when you have need and want to serve the People

you must ask for what you need

with a pure heart of the Creator.

And when you ask what you need to serve the People,

You must have no trace of doubt

that what you has asked

will be given to you

according to your needs.

Then exactly as you have asked,

that is the way it will be.

You are well grounded in the "Sacred Hoop of the People," Phil.  I wish I had known your father better.  Your family lives the sacred quest of all people.  Congratulations, for passing the ancient wisdom and the current light in such a healthy mix.  Well done.  Thank you for a lifetime of hard work.

The words are touching to the soul from our ancestors. They remind us everyday to look around and feel , see, hear and get in touch with 'spirit' :)

this is so valuable for all of us,for if we are truly walking the wheel, we will be in that center,the Center of the Hoop....Our connection with every one and every living being is one of our greatest blessings. Thank you for blessing my day with these words of beauty,power and truth!

Thank you for this reminder that, especially at this time of year we are all connected, not only to our ancestors, but also to those for whom we now hold this space.
