Text from Hehaka Sapa, Black Elk, a great sage and sacred man from the Lakota Sioux, born in 1863 and died 1950.
IT IS WRITTEN:
"I am blind and I do not see the things of this world; but when the light comes from On-High, it illuminates my heart and then I see, for the Eye of my heart sees all things.
The heart is the sanctuary at the center of which there is a tiny space in which the Great Spirit dwells, and that is the Eye. That is the Eye of the Great Spirit through which He sees all things and through which we see Him.
When the heart is not pure, the Great Spirit cannot be seen, and if you were to die in that state of ignorance, you soul could not immediately return to Him, but would have to be purified by peregrination [walking] throughout the world. In order to know the center of the heart where the Great Spirit dwells, you must be pure and good, and live according to the way the Great Spirit taught us. The man who, in this way, is pure, holds the universe in the pocket of his heart."
Because our hearts can see everything, we can and do create the world around us. If we speak it with our lips, it will become reality. May our reality always be peaceful and loving.
