Thank You for all You gave me this year, for Your faithfulness in me and for pointing me always into the right direction.
Thank You for my beautiful children’s health, life and happiness and for sustaining us until this season. I am grateful.
Please dear God, Bless me with a change of my heart, and allowing me to remove the layers that block her from connecting and receiving Your flow of energy to grow.
Help me to let go of my “lizards” so that I would be cleansed and able to return to Your palace to be able to dwell in Your presence all the days of my life.
May the words of my meditation be agreeable to You
Getting ready to prepare a new conversation before 5782
Each year, before the holy day of Rosh HaShanah (The Head of the Year or the new Jewish year), I examine my past year thoroughly, on all aspects, and resolve some of the issues that arise when I reckon what has unfolded for me.
I end the accounting of the soul with a letter or a conversation with the Ruler of the Universe, while I can still get a hold of attention before things get serious. The day of judgment is coming, the day when we officially go under scrutiny for all that we, human beings, are responsible for.
Like for instance, how did we take care of our businesses, our planet, our neighbors, our children, our elders, etc..?
Chief Oren Lyons speaks about Climate Change in 2007
This was fourteen years ago…
Today, we repeat we have to be ready. We continued waging wars. Abuse nature. We are not ready to face the consequences without shivering. It is time to change. From the inside out.
Oren R. Lyons is Faithkeeper of the Turtle Clan of the Onondaga Nation, one of the Six Nations of the Haudenosaunee (people of the Long House) whose territory once encompassed most of New York, Pennsylvania, and part of Ohio in the United States and Ontario and Quebec in Canada. Also known as the Iroquois Confederacy, the Six Nations includes the Onondaga, Mohawk, Seneca, Cayuga, Oneida, and Tuscorara nations. The Haudenosaunee form of government is based on a more than 1,000-year-old oral constitution called the Great Law of Peace, whose democratic ideals, some historians say, served as inspiration for the framers of the US Constitution.
A blessing for a Good Year
May we bring ourselves into goodness, into connection for the good
