What Is The Most Sacred, The Most Powerful ,The Most Meaningful and The Most Holy Ceremony Of All Ceremonies?

Some years ago, a beloved tribal grandmother asked me a deep, soul-searching
question.

“Grandson,” she said, “what is the Most Sacred, the Most Powerful, the Most Holy , the the Most Meaningful Ceremony of All Ceremonies?”

With some pride, I began to recount some of the traditional tribal ceremonies that I had participated in over the years. After I was finished describing the Sun Dance, the Sweat Lodge, Vision Questing, and other ceremonies I had participated in, she said, “Grandson, those are all very Sacred, Powerful, and Holy Ceremonies, but the Most Sacred, the Most Powerful, the Most Holy of all Ceremonies is the Birth of a Child.”

Then, she looked very, very deeply into my eyes and soul and said, “Then who are you?”

Ina is Mother, Unci Maka is Grandmother Earth, Ina gives birth to a child and Unci Maka gives birth to all in the Circle of Life. It is up to us to take care of this most Sacred.....

We are the women who raise such boys and then they become men among men. For what Mother cannot understand the precious souls who we give birth to. We listen, hear think and remember your life before you are born dear son

Phil, All the more reason to work on saving the at-risk children born to people who don't remember or know this. Thanks for the words and now this is one more tool I can use in my work. Grace Growing Medicine

So many questions have been answered by your timely post. I am humbled by how many times the example of the child within has been shown to me today. I need to listen.

Experiencing the feeling I felt in my heart when I first held my newborn son was a major turning point in rebuilding my connection with a Loving Creator, not long after that an elder told me, " I believe Our Creator feels the same way toward ALL of us, as you did when you felt that connection with your son". What a feeling!
