Description
Words: Paraphrased from "Worldwords" by Victor La Cerva, MD, HEAL Foundation
Press (used by permission).

I. Nasha hozho (Navajo: to walk in the beauty way)

"To walk in beauty, to walk in beauty,
is to know the goodness of all creation."

II. Kairos (Greek: Right timing/synchronicity)

"Trust that part of you always knows when to listen,
that part of you always knows when to act.
Honor the knowing of the other way to listen, listen, listen.
Invite the rhapsody of committed surrender."

III. Mitakuye oyashin (Lakota: We are related to everyone and everything)

"We walk through the earth with open eyes,
to be one with all that is.
We accept our humble place in this vast creation,
to honor kinship with all that lives.
O sacred candle of understanding,
light our paths, we are part of a great unfolding.
We are related to life around us;
we are part of the life-force of all creation.
We walk through the earth with open eyes,
to be one with all that is.
All things above us, all things below us,
all honor kinship with all that lives.
We honor kinship with all that has life."
