Creation Spirituality is About Harmony

ImageThe Navajo Indians lived with beauty and bounty daily. They reverenced the sacredness of everything around them. Their outlook in life was to live in harmony with this beauty, this bounty and the sacredness of their surroundings. They were aware that they came from the earth and are intimately linked with everything else that there was in it. It was with reverence and gratitude whenever they killed game for their food and their clothes. What ever they took from the Earth, they gave back. When they gathered fruits and plants for food, they would give back to Earth by scattering into the wind a holy powder which they made from the pollen of corn. They also sprinkled this same powder when they prayed to the sun and the sky to rain on their crops and make them grow.

Creation Spirituality is harmony with nature and with one another. We have but one planet for a home. We lose it and we lose ourselves for we will have no other place to live in. If we were to pollute and thrash our planet, we would destroy it and along with it, all life as we know it today. Earth, I am ceertain, will be able to regenerate itself and bring forth life again and perhaps a new breed of lifeforms that would be more aware, more appreciative and more responsible for the harmony that makes all life possible on earth.

Let everything that is alive grow. And let the Lord of the Harvest decide what happens to everyone and everything at the time of the harvest.

But he replied, “No; for in gathering the weeds you would uproot the wheat along with them. Let both of them grow together until the harvest; and at harvest time I will tell the reapers, Collect the weeds first and bind them in bundles to be burned, but gather the wheat into my barn.”
Matthew 13:24-30
