I know. Our image of Native Americans is not what this Navajo blessing depicts, but of bloodthirsty savages. Well, not so fast with those stereotypes.
Man has always had its warrior class, usually to defend and protect people or land. Native Americans are no different in that respect.
But in other respects, indigenous people were very different. They were in touch not with religious dogma, but with spirituality, as this Navajo blessing makes clear. And the spirituality of nature.
I love this blessing and am sharing it today to help promote harmony in love in a world in which there’s too little of both. If only we COULD walk in harmony with God and all people. Can we?
Let’s all say this blessing today and put that out in the world.
