Homo Lumine

Handmade Collage
This is a tribute to the native cultures of America. I have always considered that, despite being "primitive" cultures, they were much more emotionally and spiritually advanced because of their deep connection with nature and all living beings. They understood what it meant to be in balance with the universe.

“There is a river flowing now very fast.
It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid.
They will try to hold on to the shore.
They will feel they are being torn apart and will suffer greatly.
Know the river has its destination.
The elders say we must let go of the shore,
push off into the middle of the river,
keep our eyes open, and our heads above water.
And I say, see who is in there with you and celebrate.
At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally,
Least of all, ourselves.
For the moment that we do,
our journey will come to a halt.
The time of the lone wolf is over.
Gather yourselves!
Banish the word struggle from your attitude and your vocabulary.
All that we do now must be in a sacred manner and in celebration.
We are the ones we have been waiting for.”
