Look Within

I look within and I see the Heart of the Universe.
I see every created thing, all that is, all that was, and all that is yet to be
As I look I see that every created thing has a thread of smoke or light going from it.
The voice whispers, “This cord connects all to the Source.
Without this cord it would not exist.”
I see that all these threads, coming from everything, go to the center
The center circle of the Source, where the seven directions make one place.
I see that all these threads are tied together or joined here at this spot.

The voice spoke, “This is the Center of the Universe.
This is the place where all things join together,
Where all that is, all that was, and all that will be, become one.
The place where everything and all begin and end,
This place inside everything and all that is,
Binding yet freeing, holding yet letting go.”
And I finally understand.
Understand of all creation, the seen and the unseen,
Everything and All are related, Everything and All are equal, Everything and All are one.

The voice spoke one last time, “Yes, now you know the Center of the Universe.” ……

And I pray to the seven directions…..hear me.

I pray to the West, which provides us rest and reflection.
I thank the West for these gifts for without them we could not live.

I pray to the North, which provides us patience and purity.
I thank the North for these gifts for without them we could not live.

I pray to the East, which provides us energy and emotions.
I thank the East for these gifts for without them we could not live.

I pray to the South, which provides us discipline and direction.
I thank the South for these gifts for without them we could not live.

I pray to the Above, which provides us with beauty and vision.
I thank the Above for these gifts for without them we could not live.

I pray to the Below, which provides us with all our physical needs.
I thank the Below for these gifts for without them we could not live.

I pray to the Within, which provides, holds, and guards our connection to the Source.
I thank the Within for these gifts for without them we could not live.

Grandmother, you share with me your wisdom, and I thank you for this gift.
Grandfather, you share with me your strength, and I thank you for this gift.
