Part 3 - Forgiving Columbus: Can a 500-year-old wound be healed?

The last part of the story of Forgiving Columbus brings us home to the Grand Mesa where a Thanksgiving celebration will focus the several hundred year-long tradition of gratitude. We will have a read around of the condensed version of the Thanksgiving Address, by Mohawk Elder, Jake Swamp. He published the Address so people of all walks of life to learn that we are all one. At sunrise the next day a hundred people came to the Ceremony of Forgiveness. They smoked the chanupa, pipe of peace, at the foot of Mt. Sopris.

Mind and Heart...

We tend to get lost, drifting in our mind and thinking, forgetting how to listen to our heart. The heart holds our knowing and wisdom and knows the path that resonates with us. It knows the next step we should take. It’s always present but it’s hard for us to hear when we’re busy in the mind. Sacred Fire helps us to discover this energy of heart again. The heart has an enormous capacity to make life sing again while the mind ministers the heart’s knowing.

Fire is the connective force that brings our spirit and soul back to life and even to the timeless place within.
