This is the first nation that organized government on the basis of universal liberty with a free Church and a free State. This meant much at the time; it means much now and will continue to be the beacon of light and guidance for ourselves and of other nations.

Interest in global circumnavigation is older than Christianity itself. In fact if the following quotation is to be credited some attempts at circumnavigation predated the birth of Christ: As for the rest of the distance around the inhabited earth which has not been visited by us up to the present time (because of the fact that the navigators who sailed in opposite directions never met) it is not of very great extent if we reckon from the parallel distances that have been traversed by us... For those who undertook circumnavigation and turned back without having achieved their purpose say that they were made to turn back not because of any continent that stood in their way and hindered their further advance inasmuch as the sea still continued open as before but because of their destitution and loneliness.

The present only is our own live love toil with a will; Place no faith in tomorrow for the clock may then be still.

A short term view will lead to a partial and perhaps twisted view of the whole picture. A crucial element may be missing. We may not be running the entire race. A friend of mine described a colleague as great at running the ninety-five yard dash. That is a distinction I can do without. Lacking the last five yards makes the first ninety-five pointless. In fact serious runners thing of it as a 110 yard dash so that no one will best them in the last few yards. Youve got to think beyond the whole.

Ere you lie down to sleep in the night sit still awhile and nurse again to life your gentler self. Forget the restless noisy spirit of the day and encourage to speech the soft voices within you that timidly whisper of the peace of the quiet night; and occasionally look out at the quiet stars. The night will soothe you like a tender mother folding you against her soft bosom and hiding you from the harm of the world. Though denied and rejected by men in the light of day the night will not reject you and in the still of her soft shadows you are free. After the day's struggle there is no freedom like unfettered thoughts no sound like the music of silence. And though behind you lies a road of dust and heat and discouragement and before you the challenge and uncertainty of untried paths in this brief hour you are master of all highways and the universe nestles in your soul.

Secretary of State under Roosevelt testifying before the Joint Committee on the Investigation of the Pearl Harbor Attack in regard to remarks he had made to the War Council on November 28 1941. I emphasized that in my opinion the Japanese were likely to break out at any time with new acts of conquest and that the matter of safeguarding our national security was in the hands of the Army and the Navy. With due deference I expressed my judgement that any plans for our military defense should include an assumption that the Japanese might make the element of surprise a central point in their strategy and also might attack at various points simultaneously with a view to demoralizing efforts of defense and of coordination.

I believe that words can help us move or keep us paralysed and that our choices of language and verbal tone have something a great deal to do with how we live our lives and whom we end up speaking with and hearing; and that we can deflect words by trivialization of course but also by ritualized respect or we can let them enter our souls and mix with the juices of our minds.

I cant believe Im having this conversation ... With you! Youve probably never read a book in your life that wasnt written by John Grisham. You don't get it. People like you are so content to write-off English. English just isnt about analysing stories if it was I wouldnt be like this. Stories novels whatever ... reflect something about the writer ... and the culture ... and the society that it came from. Its a mirror a mirror to ourselves. And when we do it right when we just get it we know something about ourselves. English is an understanding of the self. If we can see ourselves clearly we know the right decision to make. And if you don't know who you are and make the wrong choices what good is it if you can make two-hundred and fifty thousand?

It is remarkable how much mediocrity we live with surrounding ourselves with daily reminders that the average is acceptable. Our world suffers from terminal normality. Take a moment to assess all of the things around you that promote your being average. These are the things that keep you powerless to go beyond a limit you arbitrarily set for yourself. The first step to having what your really want is the removal of everything in your environment that represents mediocrity removing those things that are limiting. One way is to surround yourself with friends who ask more of you than you do.

By being willing to accept small losses they put themselves in position to make large gains.

Is anybody happier because you passed his way? Does anyone remember that you spoke to him today? The day is almost over and its toiling time is through. Is there anyone to utter now a kindly word of you? Can you say tonight in parting with the day thats slipping fast That you helped a single brother of the many that you passed? Is a single heart rejoicing over what you did or said; Does the man whose hopes were fading now with courage look ahead? Did you waste the day or lose it? Was it well or sorely spent? Did you leave a trail of kindness or a scar of discontent? As you close your eyes in slumber do You that that GOD will say You have earned one more tomorrow by the work you did today?

How can you shorten the subject? That stern struggle with the multiplication table for many people not yet ended in victory how can you make it less? Square root as obdurate as a hardwood stump in a pasturenothing but years of effort can extract it. You cant hurry the process. Or pass from arithmetic to algebra; you cant shoulder your way past quadratic equations or ripple through the binomial theorem. Instead the other way; your feet are impeded in the tangled growth your pace slackens you sink and fall somewhere near the binomial theorem with the calculus in sight on the horizon. So died for each of us still bravely fighting our mathematical training; except for a set of people called mathematicians -- born so like crooks.

Who made you? a boy of ten was asked. He stood in thoughtful silence for a moment and then measuring the length of a baby with his hands replied: God made me this long and I growed the rest.

My doctrine is any that stands for The honor and virtue of men. For whatever we preach Were all striving to reach A mutual goal in the end. My church is the one that is nearest Wherever I happen to be. The place where men go Their devotion to show Is good and sufficient for me.

Hands untrained in the use of tools destroy what they want to build. It takes skill to use tools to achieve the result desired whether its tearing down an old house or building a new one. Skepticism is a tool serving both purposes. But it must be used by a trained mind a mind capable of disciplined thinking.

The Constitution in addition to delegating certain enumerated powers to Congress places whole areas outside the reach of Congress' regulatory authority. The First Amendment for example is fittingly celebrated for preventing Congress from prohibiting the free exercise of religion or abridging the freedom of speech. The Second Amendment similarly appears to contain an express limitation on the government's authority....This Court has not had recent occasion to consider the nature of the substantive right safeguarded by the Second Amendment. If however the Second Amendment is read to confer a personal right to keep and bear arms a colorable argument exists that the Federal Government's regulatory scheme at least as it pertains to the purely intrastate sale or possession of firearms runs afoul of that Amendment's protections.

Contemplating this blighted and sinister career the lesson is burnt in upon the conscience that since Judas by transgression fell no place in the Church of Christ can render any man secure. And since falling he was openly exposed none may flatter himself that the cause of Christ is bound up with his reputation that the mischief must needs be averted which his downfall would entail that Providence must needs avert from him the natural penalties for evildoing. Though one was as the signet upon the Lords hand yet was he plucked thence. There is no security for any soul except where love and trust repose upon the bosom of Christ.

It is especially important in this discussion to recognize the unity of the total process from that first unimaginable moment of cosmic emergence through all its subsequent forms of expression until the present. This unbreakable bond of relatedness that makes of the whole a universe becomes increasingly apparent to scientific observation although this bond ultimately escapes scientific formulation or understanding. In virtue of this relatedness everything is intimately present to everything else in the universe. Nothing is completely itself without everything else. This relatedness is both spatial and temporal. However distant in space or time the bond of unity is functionally there. The universe is a communion and a community. We ourselves are that communion become conscious of itself.

An IDEAL is a vision of the Ought-To-Be some good to be attained.... An ideal is a challenge to a better life. First we must see it in imagination; then we must long to make it a part of ourselves; then we shall guide our conduct by it we shall live it. An ideal is both light and power. It is light for conscience and motive-power for will. It is a standard by which we judge between right and wrong. When we see a noble ideal lived out in anothers life it gives us a holy discontent with ourselves until we make it our own and it makes more beautiful and strong our own character. This is the way of all progress as the world grows better for there is no progress without ideals....

One has said that Ingratitude is a crime more despicable than revenge which is only returning evil for evil while ingratitude returns evil for good.

A beautiful legend tells the story of two angels that were sent forth throughout the land each given a basket one to gather up requests and the other thanksgivings. The angel of requests came back with her basket running over full. The angel of thanksgivings came back with her basket practically empty. So it is in life.

...[E.H.] Moore ws presenting a paper on a highly technical topic to a large gathering of faculty and graduate students from all parts of the country. When half way through he discovered what seemed to be an error (though probably no one else in the room observed it). He stopped and re-examined the doubtful step for several minutes and then convinced of the error he abruptly dismissed the meeting -- to the astonishment of most of the audience. It was an evidence of intellectual courage as well as honesty and doubtless won for him the supreme admiration of every person in the group -- an admiration which was in no wise diminished but rather increased when at a later meeting he announced that after all he had been able to prove the step to be correct.

There are many things which a person can do alone but being a Christian is not one of them. As the Christian life is above all things a state of union with Christ and of union of his followers with one another love of the brethren is inseparable from love of God. Resentment toward any human being cannot exist in the same heart with love to God. The personal relationship to Christ can only be realized when one has come to himself as a member of His Body the Christian fellowship.

The path of duty is the only path of safety. It is the only path wherein we can walk and have the assurance of Gods continued blessings of his continued deliverances.

But if we continue in the path that is marked out for us by divine instruction trusting implicitly in God then shall we be delivered from all impending evils that are sought to be brought upon us no matter what they may be; and the nearer we live to God the greater will be the blessings showered upon us and seeming evils will be changed to blessings of untold worth.

It is not evil that will have the last word but good; not sorrow but joy; not hate but love.

The antithesis between death and life is not so stark for the Christian as it is for the atheist. Life is a process of becoming and the moment of death is the transition from one life to another. Thus it is possible for a Christian to succumb to his own kind of death-wish to seek that extreme of other-worldliness to which the faith has always been liable especially in periods of stress and uncertainty. There may appear a marked preoccupation with death and a rejection of all temporal things. To say that this world is in a fallen state and that not too much value must be set upon it is very far from the Manichaean error of supposing it to be evil throughout. The Christian hope finds ambivalence in death: that which destroys also redeems.

Poetry often introduces a mythological dimension which reflects the close connections between the gods and commonly encountered trees. A passage from Vergils Georgics in which the poet enumerates grafted trees and miraculous growth incorporates several such mythological references: myrtles sacred to Venus; the poplar crown of Hercules; and the acorns of Jupiters symbolic oak referring to his grove at Dodona. The pine was held sacred to Pan the Roman Faunus and in his Eclogues Vergil describes the pastoral gods home on Mt. Maenalus in Arcadia. Propertius stresses the gods fondness for the tree and Horace for his part dedicates a pine to the goddess Diana in a famous ode.

I believe with all my heart that civilization has produced nothing finer than a man or woman who thinks and practices true tolerance. Some one has said that most of us don't think we just occasionally rearrange our prejudices. And I suspect that even today with all the progress we have made in liberal thought the quality of true tolerance is as rare as the quality of mercy. That men of all creeds have fundamental common objectives is a fact one must learn by the process of education. How to work jointly toward these objectives must be learned by experience.

In questions of this sort there are two things to be observed. First that the truth of the Scriptures be inviolably maintained. Secondly since Scripture doth admit of diverse interpretations that no one cling to any particular exposition with such pertinacity that if what he supposed to be the teaching of Scripture should afterward turn out to be clearly false he should nevertheless still presume to put it forward lest thereby the sacred Scriptures should be exposed to the derision of unbelievers and the way of salvation should be closed to them.

In other words the propositions of philosophy are not factual but linguistic in character that is they do not describe the behaviour of physical or even mental objects; they express definitions or the formal consequences of definitions. Accordingly we may say that philosophy is a department of logic.

I know not why His hand is laid In chastening on my life Nor why it is my little world Is filled so full of strife; I know not why when faith looks up And seeks for rest from pain That oer my sky fresh clouds arise And drench my path with rain. I know not why my prayer so long By Him has been denied; Nor why while others ships sail on Mine should in port abide. But I do know that God is love That He my burden shares And though I may not understand I know for me He cares. I know the heights for which I long Are often reached through pain I know the sheaves must needs be threshed To yield the golden grain. Tis that I thus may learn to love And know as I am known I will not care how rough the road That leads me to my home.

Renew a small hope Rekindle a dream For shadows are never As dark as they seem While there is time Lord Let me not waste The chances you give me I cannot replace Lend me your wisdom That I may learn To give of myself Nor ask a return. Let me be gentle Keep my words kind In spite of the worries Crossing my mind. And when at long last Life's sun starts to set Let me have never A cause for regret.

I am his child and I can safely trust; He loves me and I know that he is just. Within his love I can scarcely rest Assured that what he does for me is best.

Ten Spiritual Tonics 1. Stop worrying. Worry kills life. 2. Begin each day with a prayer. It will arm your soul. 3. Control appetite. Over-indulgence clogs body and mind. 4. Accept your limitations ... 5. Don't envy. It wastes time and energy. 6. Have faith in people. Cynicism sours the disposition. 7. Find a hobby. It will relax your nerves. 8. Read a book a week to stimulate imagination and broaden your views. 9. Spend some time alone for the peace of solitude and silence. 10. Try to want what you have instead of spending your strength trying to get what you want.

We do not choose to be born. We do not choose our parents. We do not choose our historical epoch or the country of our birth or the immediate circumstances of our upbringing. We do not most of us choose to die; nor do we choose the time or conditions of our death. But within all this realm of choicelessness we do choose how we shall live: courageously or in cowardice honorably or dishonorably with purpose or adrift. We decide what is important and what is trivial in life. We decide that what makes us significant is either what we do or what we refuse to do. But no matter how indifferent the universe may be to our choices and decisions these choices and decisions are ours to make. We decide. We choose. And as we decide and choose so are our lives formed. In the end forming our own destiny is what ambition is about.

Agency or the power to choose was ours as spirit children of our Creator before the world was. It is a gift from God nearly as precious as life itself. Often however agency is misunderstood. While we are free to choose once we have made those choices we are tied to the consequence of those choices. We are free to take drugs or not. But once we choose to use a habit-forming drug we are bound to the consequences of that choice. Addiction surrenders later freedom to choose.

The Holy Night We sate among the stalls at Bethlehem; The dumb kine from their fodder turning them Softened their horned faces To almost human gazes Toward the newly Born: The simple shepherds from the star-lit brooks Brought visionary looks As yet in their astonied hearing rung The strange sweet angel-tongue: The magi of the East in sandals worn Knelt reverent sweeping round With long pale beards their gifts upon the ground The incense myrrh and gold These baby hands were impotent to hold: So let all earthlies and celestials wait Upon thy royal state. Sleep sleep my kingly One!

The world was young the mountains green No stain yet on the Moon was seen No words were laid on stream or stone When Durin woke and walked alone. He named the nameless hills and dells; He drank from yet untasted wells; He stooped and looked in Mirrormere And saw a crown of stars appear; As gems upon a silver thread; Above the shadow of his head. The world is grey the mountains old The forge's fire is ashen-cold; No harp is wrung no hammer falls: The darkness dwells in Durin's halls; The shadow lies upon his tomb In Moria in Khazad-dûm. But still the sunken stars appear In dark and windless Mirrormere; There lies his crown in water deep Till Durin wakes again from his sleep.

Interview 26-June-2000 with Daniel Jaffe ... a writer and Reviews Editor for Classic CD the British classical music magazine. ... what is remarkable though is that he not only suggested that jazz was a worthwhile form of music to study but he also praised authentic American jazz ...... the implications of Prokofievs enthusiasm for jazz ... The strange colours of the so-called American Overture for instance with its honky-tonk piano sound and predominant brass and woodwind colours sounds to me like a take on the sound of a jazz combo though not using its rhythmic style. Jazzy harmonies unmistakably appear in Romeo and Juliet and in his so-called War sonatas. Basically its a ... subtle and subliminal influence. . Prokofiev took opportunities to hear jazz during his many tours through the States certainly he brought plenty of jazz records back to Russia.

Dividing industry into big and little is artificial. Industry is both that makes it Industry. Ninety-eight per cent of American industries employ less than 500 men each. Todays big industries were small within our lifetime many of todays small industries will become big before our lifetime ends. Large industries make small industries necessary and small industries make large ones possible. Wipe out large industries and you wipe out three-fourths of the small ones; wipe out the small ones and the large ones cannot go on. They work together. Each has a part in the nations job.

Organismic awareness is what we on the Ego Level ordinarily but clumsily refer to as seeing touching tasting smelling and hearing. But in its very purest form this sensual awareness is nonsymbolic nonconceptual momentary consciousness. Organismic awareness is awareness of the Present only you cant taste the past smell the past see the past touch the past or hear the past. Neither can you taste smell see touch or hear the future. In other words organismic consciousness is properly timeless and being timeless it is essentially spaceless. Just as organismic awareness knows no past or future it knows no inside or outside no self or other. Thus pure organismic consciousness participates fully in the nondual awareness called Absolute Subjectivity.

Democracy is something we must always be working at. It is a process never finished never ending. And each new height gained opens broader vistas for the future.

Death is only an old door Set in a garden wall; On quiet hinges it gives at dusk When the thrushes call. Along the lintel are green leaves Beyond the light lies still; Very weary and willing feet Go over that sill. There is nothing to trouble any heart; Nothing to hurt at all. Death is only an old door In a garden wall.

The basic assumption which all expositors seem anxious to secure is certainly right namely that the ultimate purpose of a parable is to help and not hinder the apprehension of the truth. But beyond this we may say that it belongs to the very nature of revelation that the capacity to receive it depends upon the prior surrender and obedience of the will.... The disciples had so surrendered to the sovereignty of Jesus and could therefore know. If temporarily a parable concealed the truths of the kingdom from the outsider on the intellectual plane it was only in order that moral conviction might first be secured with a view to intellectual enlightenment afterwards. There are many who through intellectual pride would like to have it otherwise but it cannot be.

So rests the sky against the earth. The dark still tarn in the lap of the forest. As a husband embraces his wifes body in faithful tenderness so the bare ground and trees are embraced by the still high light of the morning. I feel an ache of longing to share in this embrace to be united and absorbed. A longing like carnal desire but directed towards earth water sky and returned by the whispers of the trees the fragrance of the soil the caresses of the wind the embrace of water and light. Content? No no no -- but refreshed rested -- while waiting.

After all we could get on very happily if aviation wireless television and the like advanced no further than at present....

Early on in the space race NASA spent much time and effort seeking a metal robust enough to withstand the heat of reentry and protect the astronauts. The endeavor failed. At some point a clever person changed the problem. The real problem was to protect the astronauts and perhaps this could be done without a material that could withstand reentry. The solution the ablative heat shield had characteristics just opposite to those originally sought. Rather than withstanding the heat it slowly burnt away and carried the heat away from the vehicle.

As to the position that the people always mean well that they always mean to say and do what they believe to be right and just it may be popular but it can not be true. The word people applies to all the individual inhabitants of a country.... That portion of them who individually mean well never was nor until the millennium will be considerable. Pure democracy like pure rum easily produces intoxication and with it a thousand pranks and fooleries. I do not expect mankind will before the millennium be what they ought to be and therefore in my opinion every political theory which does not regard them as being what they are will prove abortive. Yet I wish to see all unjust and unnecessary discriminations everywhere abolished and that the time may come when all our inhabitants of every color and discrimination shall be free and equal partakers of our political liberties.

There must appear a spiritual and moral leadership rising above economic and political situations.

Individualism as a definition of holding to personal ideals is classed as obstinacy and anti-social. Inevitably we run point blank into the evils of compromise. When compromise enters our moral fibre it spreads like a cancerous growth. We think we plan adequate safeguards around areas in which we contemplate yielding our standards but once we lower the fence and break our strong will to do right come what may we expose ourselves to forces that spread beyond control. Compromise always starts on some rather insignificant principle. The dangers of yielding seem negligible and we usually risk those things first where observation and detection by others is difficult. We thus seek to avoid censure and discipline. In a short time we find ourselves trading our principles for false values and doing it in the black market of human relationships....

There can be no freedom of the individual no democracy without the capital system the profit system the private enterprise system. These are in the end inseparable.

For a community of men without property and without the hope of getting it by honest effort is a community of slaves of a despotic State.

We ought indeed to expect to find the works of God in such things as the advance of knowledge. Knowledge of the physical universe is not to be thought of as irrelevant to Christian faith [simply] because it does not lead to saving knowledge of God. In so far as it is concerned with Gods creation physical science is a fitting study for Gods children. Moreover the advance of scientific knowledge does negatively correct and enlarge theological notions at the least the geologists and astrophysicists have helped us to rid ourselves of parochial notions of God and filled in some of the meaning of such phrases as almighty.

Many kinds of religion are available some not even skin deep some mad and unsubstantial some as harmless as the rouge on the skin of a spinster. A good bit of religion today seems shallow. It does not seem to matter except behind stained glass windows on Sunday morning. It is not dishonest religion so much as restricted religion meaning it does not serve the purpose a way of thinking for a special time and a special place. It answers a thousand questions we have not asked and by its supposed sacred customs smothers the questions we might ask or die. For the truth is that our world is both hungry for faith and sick of it..

Obviously where art has it over life is in the matter of editing. Life can be seen to suffer from a drastic lack of editing. It stops too quick or else it goes on too long. Worse its pacing is erratic. Some chapters are little more than a few sentences in length while others stretch into volumes. Life for all its raw talent has little sense of structure. It creates amazing textures but it cant be counted on for snappy beginnings or good endings either. Indeed in many cases no ending is provided at all.

In the bottom of an old pond lived some grubs who could not understand why none of their groups ever came back after crawling up the stem of the lilies to the top of the water. They promised each other that the next one who was called to make the upward climb would return and tell what happened to him. Soon one of them felt an urgent impulse to seek the surface; he rested himself on top of a lily pad and went through a glorious transformation which made him a dragonfly with beautiful wings. In vain he tried to keep him promise. Flying back and forth over the pond he peered down at his friends below. Then he realized that if they could ever see him they would not recognize such a radiant creature as one of their number. The fact that we cannot see our friends or communicate with them after the transformation which we call death. is no proof that they cease to exit.

How are her behavior patterns programmed first into the genes of the caterpillar and then translated into the neural pathways of the butterfly? These are mysteries that biologists are far from understanding. The monarch is living proof that natures imagination is richer than our own.

It makes little difference what the trade business or branch of learning in mechanical labor or intellectual effort the educated man is always superior to the common laborer. One who is in the habit of applying his powers in the right way will carry system into any occupation and it will help him as much to handle a rope as to write a poem.

The Myth of the Angry White Male What has sprung up is a strange kind of thinking.... Americans are unhappy with their lot. They are feeling insecure layoffs and corporate downsizing have made their future uncertain. Stirred up by talk radio the theory goes large numbers of formerly sensible people have embraced hate and extremism. Most of these according to the media are white guys. A Washington Post/ABC pre-election poll asked voters if they were angry about the way the federal government works. Four out of five white males said no. 62 percent of white men voted for Republican House candidates (38 percent for Democrats in 1994 a ten-point increase from the 1990 midterm elections). But was this special to their gender? In 1994 white women voted for Republican House candidates by a 55 to 45 percent majority. Significantly there isnt single article decrying angry white females.

So long as you live and in whatever circumstances the kaleidoscope of life may place you think for yourself and act in accordance with the conclusions of that thinking; avoid so far as possible drifting with the current of the mob or being too easily influenced by the outward manifestation of things. Take your own look beneath the surface and don't trust others to look for you. If you will follow this rule consistently I am sure you will keep out of much trouble will make the most out of your life and what is more will contribute most of value to the community life.

I think that the most important thing to teach children in an environmentally conscious age is alternative views of nature. They must be shown how our interpretation of natural systems is often completely dependent not on what is there but on what kind of box we draw around the data. And if they are going to be smarter than their parents then schoolchildren must think subversively about accepted wisdoms concerning natural systems.

Science being human enquiry can hear no answer except an answer couched somehow in human tones. Primitive man stood in the mountains and shouted against a cliff; the echo brought back his own voice and he believed in a disembodied spirit. The scientist of today stands counting out loud in the face of the unknown. Numbers come back to him - and he believes in the Great Mathematician.

John W. Gardner the president of the Carnegie Corporation in an address said this: The most important moral of all is that excellence is where you find it. I would extend this generalization to cover not just higher education but all education from vocational high school to graduate school. We must learn to honor excellence indeed to demand it in every socially accepted human activity however humble that activity and to scorn shoddiness however exalted the activity. An excellent plumber is infinitely more admirable than an incompetent philosopher. The society which scorns excellence in plumbing because plumbing is a humble activity and tolerates shoddiness in philosophy because philosophy is an exalted activity will have neither good plumbing nor good philosophy. Neither its pipes nor its theories will hold water.

Each koan is a window that show the whole truth but just from a single vantage. It is limited in perspective. One hundred koans give one hundred vantages. When they are enriched with insightful comments and poems then you have ten thousand vantages. There is no end to this process of enrichment.

If this bill [for the admission of Orleans Territory as a State] passes it is my deliberate opinion that it is virtually a dissolution of the Union; that it will free the States from their moral obligation; and as it will be the right of all so it will be the duty of some definitely to prepare for a separation amicably if they can violently if they must.

The old people came literally to love the soil and they sat or reclined on the ground with a feeling of being close to a mothering power. It was good for the skin to touch the earth and the old people liked to remove their moccasins and walk with bare feet on the sacred earth. Their tipis were built upon the earth and their altars were made of earth. The birds that flew into the air came to rest upon the earth and it was the final abiding place of all things that lived and grew. The soil was soothing strengthening cleansing and healing.
