so i was reading about the man who inspired
pam's poem that i quoted yesterday.
in there they quote black elk as saying
"i cured with the power that came thru me.
of course, it was not i who cured, it was
the power from the outer world, the visions
and the ceremonies had only made me like a
hole thru which the power could come to the
two leggeds. if i thought i was doing it myself,
the hole would close up and no power could come
i totally love that thought.
not a new one.....just a reminder......
i really believe in just opening up and making
yourself a pipe to 'the outer world'....
so, like, how come i don't do that more often??
