The Gathering ~ By Rainbow Hand
You know who you are, those of you who are
You feel inside of you an awakening of
Spirit as the time of truth draws near. In our villages, the
people speak of a new dawning and on our plains our people are
coming together for The Gathering.
The elders sit and smoke and warm their bodies around the fire
as they speak of the old ways and also of the ways to come. 'Tis
a new dance that we shall dance and a new medicine that we shall
teach as the wheel of creation turns yet another cycle.
You know that you are coming together because when you meet one
of your kind who is true of heart, the drum within you sounds a
new beat and you are joined in Spirit. Between those of you who
are true, the bond shall never be broken.
With each joining of Spirit, you enrich yourself and your life
in ways that mortal words cannot speak of. With each joining of
hearts, The Gathering grows ever nearer and the Spirit of our
people grows ever stronger. You need not search for your kindred
souls for they are guided to you and your soul will make them
known upon their coming.
Do not make plans for The Gathering for the time shall not be
known. You will feel it draw near as the time comes and as more
of you come together. It is a divine work of The Great Spirit
and does not require the intervention of mortals.
Do not be afraid! I see there are those of you who fear The
Gathering as an end to creation. It is not so, but it is also
not for me to interfere with the great work and foretell you
that which you wish to know. Your thirst for knowledge will be
quenched in due course.
Go now and observe The Great Spirit wishes you to love your
brothers and sisters. Take pity on those who are less fortunate
than you. Heal the sick with the way of love. And pity your
oppressors, for they shall not be coming to The Gathering.
Open your heart and keep it open, for love resides within, and
there are those who need all that you can give. Fear not for
your place at The Gathering, for if we were not pleased with
you, you would not be coming!
