Cherokee Thoughts for October

How like moths we are when we are caught in the dark, beating our wings against anything that stands between us and the light. Though we strain against barriers, we are the "a tsv s dv" "we are the (light) or candle that lights the place we are! Others who follow; they watch for a signal, a light in the dark to let them know they are not alone. We may need to take some time to be quiet, to recharge and it just may mean waiting for awhile in the dark. But, whatever the need, whatever our need, if we will but wait... the light will come. It will illuminate our way instead of blinding us with its glare. And so it is good.  "The path is rough and many gloomy hours obscure it. May the Great Spirit shed light on yours" (Black Hawk)  It is in the dark times that you may find comfort in knowing that you are never really alone. You have others in your world and others on the other side. Others are always with you, and they are cheering for you! Take comfort in that presence as you wait for the light. It will come. It always comes. Walk In Beauty.
