Today is the new moon of April, the Sprouting Grass Moon. It won't be visible for a little while, but in two weeks it will move across the circle of our sky and be full.
I've been thinking about moons, circles, and hearts....
The Enzo- which looks like a moon,
And what Black Elk said:
You have noticed that everything as Indian does is in a circle, and that is because the Power of the World always works in circles, and everything tries to be round.
The Sky is round, and I have heard that the earth is round like a ball, and so are all the stars. The wind, in its greatest power, whirls. Birds make their nest in circles, for theirs is the same religion as ours.
Even the seasons form a great circle in their changing, and always come back again to where they were. The life of a man is a circle from childhood to childhood, and so it is in everything where power moves.
And I've been thinking that we try too hard to know things with our heads. What we can get in our heads isn't all that important. I think there's more payoff in learning things by heart, for heart. Heart "knowing" is sweeter, deeper, warmer.
