Anasazi Initiation

In the Stillness of the Kiva,
I journeyed to a Land,
far beyond my Time and Place
into a Shaman's hand...

And when I had returned,
the meeting seemed to fade,
but quiet in my thoughts I heard
the Anasazi say............

"You cannot deny me, Child.
You cannot deny what you felt-
where you went-
who you are.
You cannot deny
that your soul
is real,
or that you knelt
in the meadowlands
of another world.
You cannot deny me, Child;
and you cannot deny yourself.
Surrender to the genesis
of your believing --
Surrender to release your own creation."
