I love being with wise elders. I’m at the Sunray Peace Village Elder’s Gathering in Vermont, a 3 day event that they’ve been doing for 34 years, gathering elders from many nations – Native American and indigenous elders from other countries as well. It’s a lot of fun!
One of the elders said today, our creator loves diversity. Just look at all the different kinds of trees, and birds and everywhere we look in nature is this endless display of diversity. I love diversity and I find it comforting. It’s one of the reasons why I love these Elders Gatherings – everyone looks and sounds so different, but the hearts feel the same.
I love that the days are filled with SO MUCH gratitude to our creator, for our life, for the good in our life, for the food, the weather, and the opportunity to be together.
It takes MANY people working many long days in order to pull this event off. (I would love to share pictures, but the best parts are not to be photographed, they’re to be experienced.) Some of us are doing things we’ve never done before, some of us are trying out our talents and gifts.
We’re almost always outside all day and I love that.
I love to see the wise Elders being respected and listened to. They have SO MUCH to share that’s helpful. I spent as much time as I could with my grandparents and I really enjoyed listening to them. To me, people are so much more interesting than movies, books or television. For me, there’s nothing more interesting than a good conversation that leads to a new understanding of the beauty of life.
It’s so powerful to see how affecting it is to us all to be able to bask in the teachings of these ones and to remember the native ways of viewing the world.
I notice that I’ve become increasingly disinterested in movies, books and television unless they’re sharing truth and insight. Most stories aren’t interesting to me at all anymore. If I can’t feel the heart, it feels dull.
Being able to speak, write and teach in a way that touches hearts is a powerful and beautiful thing. It’s really so much fun!
In this world of extraordinary diversity, who are the wise elders that you most admire and listen to?
