Testimony from a Prayer Walker: Biko Cassini of Rising Appalachia
The Journey of the last week has touched my heart and spirit to its core.
To heal the past is a journey, one that one walks for a lifetime, with prayer and sacrifice.
Paul Stover Soderman and Philip Little Thunder made a 4 year commitment to walk the paths their ancestors walked as enemies 150 years ago, this time as brothers, in peace and in prayer. They walked over 700 miles together, praying at places where terrible events happened, reprogramming their own pain into Love and sending out a “cosmic ripple”.
We were invited to walk with them in the final days of their commitment, walking the last 50 miles with them to Laramie, where the Fort Laramie treaty was signed 150 years ago last Sunday. The treaty was to Guarantee the Lakota and other tribes a homeland, including the Black Hills, but was broken almost immediately and continues to be broken to this day.
I cannot begin to describe the events of these last days walking and praying together, or the events that took place when we joined with those tribes gathered to honor the treaty and see it upheld. I can only share a few impressions:
If it is forgotten, it can be remembered.
If it is remembered, it can be healed.
True healing takes commitment, sacrifice, and time.
When we walk the earth respectfully, we remember what it feels like to be human.
Horses are healers
Water is Life
Humility is a great strength that one can carry and with it Love can triumph.
An open heart can open hearts.
The more time we spend outside on the land, away from our devises, without using money, the richer our lives become.
Prayer , Respect, and Gratitude are doorways to spirit.
Miracles happen all the time when we align with prayerful purpose.
I send my most heart felt thanks to Zey, Leah, Chloe, Paul, Feather, Shaunti, Philip and all the walkers for your friendship and for the prayerful ways you live.
I send deep Love and respect to the Lakota, Arapaho, Cheyenne, Crow and all native people for keeping their ways alive despite the cruelest hardship, so that we may witness what is beautiful in their ways, and turn a new page in history together that honors and respects all people and all paths to creator.
We are all related,
To all my relations!
