Embracing the Infinite

In prayer.
It is only man who concerns himself with the end of things. He worries about death, loss, and change. Nothing in the heart of the Great Spirit teaches us this. Everything in the domain of The Mother is renewed. Each year, we, ourselves, dance for renewal. We pray for a continuance of all things. Still, our wise hearts understand that this is just ceremony. It is not the true way of the many worlds of the Great Spirit. The Wise Elder understands that All things are shown to us within the circle and the spiral, So that we know there is no real end. The heart of all is the Infinite. To walk the Spiritual Path in truth Is to walk each step with the Infinite.
