Calling the Seven Directions

Calling The Seven Directions

  Great Spirit of the East, Place of the rising Sun, Who counts the years of our lives! and the opportunities of each day. Strengthen us that we may not neglect our gifts, nor the hopes of each day and the hopes of each year.

 Great Spirit of the South, whose warm breath of compassion melts the ice that gathers round our hearts, whose fragrance speaks of warm days, kindle our love into growth of true and living realities. Teach us that who is truly strong is also kind, wise, tempers justice with mercy, courage with compassion.

 Great Spirit of the West, the land of the setting Sun, with Your soaring mountains and free, wide rolling prairies, bless us with knowledge of the peace which follows effort of striving and the freedom which emits like a flowing robe in the winds of a well-lived life. Teach us that the end is better than the beginning and that the setting sun is glorious and our lives not lived in vain.

 Great Spirit of the North, who brings wisdom with age and time Bringing the waters of the air Who covers the Earth with a sparkling crystal above whose deep tranquillity every sound is beautiful. Temper us with strength to withstand the biting blizzards yet make us thankful for the beauty which follows and lies deep over the warm Earth in its wake.

Great Spirit of the heavens in the days infinite light and amid the countless stars of the night remind us that you are vast that you are beautiful and majestic beyond all of our knowing or understanding but also that you are no further from us than the tilting upwards of our heads and the raising of our eyes.

 Great Spirit of Mother Earth beneath our feet Master of metals, Germinator of seeds and the Storer of the Earth's resources, help us to give thanks Always for Your present bounty.

 Great Spirit of our souls within, burning in our heart's desire and in our innermost aspirations, speak to us now and always so that we may be aware of our greatness and goodness of spirit, This gift of life and be worthy of happiness Our priceless privilege of living.
