Brother Phil, as Chief Phil Lane, Jr likes to be addressed, wrote the above words at the beginning of his recent post entitled Visions, Realities and Guiding Principles for the Future. I am struck by the similarity in tone of wisdom and heart by our honored guest and the words ascribed to Crazy Horse as he walked the final leg of what would become his last journey to Fort Laramie—words that speak reverence for care of relationships and conducting one's self in a sacred manner, in a manner that is guided by the heart.
“Starting from within, working in a circle, in a sacred manner, we heal ourselves, our relationships and our world".
Brother Phil joins our Occupy Heart call to share his heart and wisdom as we continue a healing that is vital to the restoration of the dignity and soul of humanity.
Imagine a world that honors and cherishes our inter-relatedness in peaceful coexistence. What do you see through your heart's eyes that occurred to achieve this great shift?
When the violin can forgive the past
It starts singing.
When the violin can stop worrying about the future
You will become
Such a drunk laughing nuisance
Will then lean down
And start combing you into His Hair.
When the violin can forgive
Every wound caused by Others
The heart starts Singing. ~Hafiz of course
Although I was able to listen only a short time to the prayer of Brother Phil, I was struck by how certain concepts transcend geography and time. His words reminded me very much of the holy book of the Sikhs, the Siri Guru Granth Sahib.
Our indigenous heart compels us to know these truths as self evident, that Love is most powerful force in our known Universe as its fundamental result is harmony—harmony among frequencies, within fields, amidst perception.
Love reorganizes biology as healing, reorganizes emotion as inclusive presence, illuminates belief as self-authored and illuminates relationship as self-reflective.
However many thousands of years are carried by the river of time, Love remains the lowest common denominator of our collective essential Wisdom that is ageless and timeless.
