Thank you dear sister Dandelion!
Fellow Human Beings,

Imagine this:
12,888,422 Care2 members making a difference!

(Well, if at least one out of thousand 
       could show some effort, but that would be
           all too much to ask for, wouldn't it?)

The very least we can do now, is to
    Stand with the People of Haiti!

The worst earthquake in 200 years struck Haiti, devastating the capital and threatening over 3 million people. Haiti's infrastructure and communications have been shattered and untold thousands killed.

Haitians are desperately appealing to the world for help -- let's come together to send a worldwide wave of donations to the most effective community-based relief efforts there!

100% of funds raised will go into post-earthquake relief and rebuilding programmes and efforts to strengthen local systems in Haiti -- it's the most direct way to build Haiti's resilience and help meet the desperate needs of the people on the frontline who need help urgently today:

Doctors Without Borders has already treated more than 1,000 people on the ground in Haiti following Tuesday's earthquake, but the needs are huge. An inflatable hospital with operating theatres is expected to arrive in the next 24 hours.

And if I go while you're still here...
Know that I live on, vibrating to a different measure...
Behind a thin veil you cannot see through.
You will not see me, so you must have faith.
I wait for the time when we can soar together again...
Both aware of each other.
Until then, live life to its fullest.
And when you need me,
Just whisper my name in your heart...
I will be there.


"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind, don't matter; and those who matter, don't mind" - - Dr. Seuss

I was given the name Dove by  Grandfather Owl and prefer this name to JoAnna. If you write to me
I hope that you will call me Dove.

Creator, lift up those who are still Missing this day. Also protect and give Mercy and Grace to those still out there. Protect them from evil and bring them home safe.


















By clicking on this link below you can send a free card to a soldier who is deployed. It only takes a few seconds and would mean so much to a member of the military who is in harms way.

From beautiful Roz

Cherokee Prayer Oh Great spirit, grant that I may never find fault with my neighbor until I have walked the trail of life in his moccasins.
NativeAmerican7.jpg

 

















 

 

The Teaching of Tecumseh

Live your life that the fear of death

can never enter your heart.

Trouble no one about his religion.

Respect others in their view,

and demand that they respect yours.

Love your life, perfect your life,

Beautify all things in your life.

Seek to make your life long

and of service to your people.

Prepare a noble death song for the day

when you go over the great divide.

Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting

or passing a friend, or even a stranger, when in a lonely place.

Show respect to all people but grovel to none.

When you arise in the morning, give thanks for the light

and for your life, for your strength.

Give thanks for your food and for the joy of living.

If you see no reason for giving thanks,

the fault lies only in yourself.

Touch not the poisonous firewater.

Abuse no one and nothing,

For abuse turns the wise ones to fools

and robs the spirit of its vision.

When it comes your time to die, be not like those

whose hearts are filled with fear of death,

so that when their time comes they weep and pray

for a little more time to live their lives over again

In a different way.

"Sing your death song and die like a hero going home."

















The Cherokee Way of the Circle

When you first arise in the morning, give thanks to the Creator, to the four directions, to Mother Earth, to Father Sky, and to all of our relations, for the life within you and for all life around you.

Remember that all things are connected. All things have purpose. Consider performing a "giveaway" by distributing your possessions to others who are in need. You are bound by your word, which cannot be broken except by permission of those who the promise was given to. Seek harmony and balance in all things. It is always important to remember where you are in relation to everything else and to contribute to the Circle in whatever way you can , by being a "helper" and protector of life. Sharing is the best part of receiving.

Practice silence and patience in all things as a reflection of self-control, endurance, dignity, reverence, and inner calm. Practice modesty in all things, by avoiding boasting and loud behavior that attracts attention to yourself. Know the things that contribute to your well-being, and those things that lead to your destruction. Always ask permission, and give something for everything that is received, including giving thanks for, and honoring all living things.

Be aware of what is around you, what is inside of you, and always show respect. Treat every person from the tiniest child to the oldest elder with respect. Do not stare at others; drop your eyes as a sign of respect, especially in the presence of Elders, teachers, or other honored persons. Always give a sign of greeting when passing a friend or stranger. Never criticize or talk about someone in a harmful, negative way .

Never touch something that belongs to someone else without permission. Respect the privacy of every person, making sure to never intrude, upon someone's quiet moments or personal space. Never interfere in the affairs of another by asking questions or offering advice. Never interrupt others. In another persons home, follow his or her customs rather than your own. Treat with respect all things held sacred to others, whether you understand these things or not.

Treat Earth as your mother; give to her, protect her, honor her; show deep respect for those in the animal world, plant world, and mineral world. Listen to guidance offered by all of your surroundings; expect this guidance to come in the form of prayer, dreams, quiet solitude, and in the words and deeds of wise Elders, and friends. Listen with your heart. Learn from your experiences, and always be open to new ones. Always remember that a smile is something sacred, to be shared. Live each day as it comes.
















To Walk The Red Road

Long road winding began in the stars,
spilled onto the mountain tops,
was carried in the snow to the streams,
to the rivers, to the ocean
It covers Canada, Alaska, America,
Mexico to Guatemala,
and keeps winding around
the indigenous.

The Red Road is a circle of people
standing hand in hand,
people in this world, people between
people in the Spirit world.
Star people, animal people, stone people,
river people, tree people
The Sacred Hoop.

To walk the Red Road
is to know sacrifice, suffering.
It is to understand humility.
It is the ability to stand naked before
the Creator in all things for your
wrong doings, for your lack of strength,
for your discompassionate way,
for your arrogance - because to walk
the Red Road, you always know
you can do better. And you know,
when you do good things,
it is through the Creator, and you
are grateful.

To walk the Red Road
is to know you stand on equal ground
with all living things. It is to know that
because you were born human,
it gives you superiority over nothing.
It is to know that every creation carries
a Spirit, and the river knows more
than you do, the mountains know
more than you do, the stone people
know more than you do,
the trees know more than you do,
the wind is wiser than you are,
and animal people carry wisdom.
You can learn from every one of them,
because they have something you don't:

They are void of evil thoughts.

They wish vengeance on no one,
they seek Justice.

To Walk the Red Road,
you have God given rights,
you have the right to pray,
you have the right to dance,
you have the right to think,
you have the right to protect,
you have the right to know Mother,
you have the right to dream,
you have the right to vision,
you have the right to teach,
you have the right to learn,
you have a right to grieve,
you have a right to happiness,
you have the right to fix the wrongs,
you have the right to truth,
you have a right to the Spirit World.

To Walk the Red Road
is to know your Ancestors,
to call to them for assistance
It is to know that there is good medicine,
and there is bad medicine
It is to know that Evil exists,
but is cowardly as it is often in disguise.
It is to know there are evil spirits
who are in constant watch
for a way to gain strength for themselves
at the expense of you.

To Walk the Red Road,
you have less fear of being wrong,
because you know that life is a journey,
a continuous circle, a sacred hoop.
Mistakes will be made,
and mistakes can be corrected -
if you will be humble,
for if you cannot be humble,
you will never know
when you have made a mistake.

If you walk the Red Road,
you know that every sorrow
leads to a better understanding,
every horror cannot be explained,
but can offer growth.

To Walk the Red Road
is to look for beauty in all things.

To Walk the Red Road
is to know you will one day
cross to the Spirit World,
and you will not be afraid.
