The state named after our first leader known for honesty, piety, and physical strength, and the only founding father to free his slaves, is again to be respected by the city named after another great leader Chief Seattle. What a great ‘state of mind’ to live by: The City of Seattle stops Funding!
Unfortunately, all of what we know of great Native American tribe leaders teachings are drenched in doubt, as if these words could not come from a simple man or way of life (not unlike many saints, teachers or simple people) to have poetry emit from their native tongue in translation. In the letter from Chief Seattle to the President of the United States in 1855 it is contested that he could not speak with such plain elegance or his translators took over (we’ve seen that from biblical times to present) and I say to you; the message is as clear then as it is now:
Chief Seattle allegedly wrote the following letter to President Franklin Pierce in 1855:
“The Great Chief in Washington sends word that he wishes to buy our land. . . . But we will consider your offer, for we know if we do not . . . the white man may come with guns and take our lands. . . . How can you buy or sell the sky— the warmth of the land? The idea is strange to us. Yet we do not own the freshness of the air or the sparkle of the water. . . . Every part of this earth is sacred to my people. . . . When the buffaloes are all slaughtered, the wild horses all tamed, the secret corners of the forest heavy with the scent of many men, and the views of the ripe hills blotted by talking wires, where is the thicket? Gone. Where is the eagle? Gone . . .”
Every time you see water or drink it valuing the opportunity to gratefully worship the gift of water
2/22 = Angel Number 222 tells you that everything will turn out for the best in the long-term. Do not put your energies into negativity – be aware that all is being worked out by spirit, for the highest good of all involved.
This might lead to new ways of engaging our awareness even if things seem dim and deadened new growth is underneath, may it crack the surface.
