A Mothering Power


There is a road in the hearts of all of us, hidden and seldom traveled,
which leads to an unknown, secret place. 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. Their teepees were built upon the
earth and their altars were made of earth. The soul was soothing,
strengthening, cleansing and healing. That is why the old Indian
still sits upon the earth instead of propping himself up and away
from its life-giving forces. For him, to sit or lie upon the ground is
to be able to think more deeply and to feel more keenly. He can see
more clearly into the mysteries of life and come closer in kinship
to other lives about him.
