There is nothing that cannot be cured…. Getting Started in Organic Gardening. I want to go back to this journey of his. I want to hear more of it, or better yet, have my own. This was absolutely amazing! Thank you Jay for allowing me to be a part of your journey. I never really stopped to realize the way these people are, or how they see things.

But this last weekend I was walking along the water front and I heard drumming. I followed the sound and what I seen, brought tears to my eyes and I know had I stumbled on this event before, it would have had very little meaning to me, simply cause I knew nothing of it. I not only felt apart of the sacred story I read because it touched apart of me inside, I never knew was there and brought it to life, I also seen this event the same way. Thank you so much for this opportunity. I have discovered a huge level of admiration and respect for Natives, and because of their ways, this admiration carries over to all living things.

As a writer, and Native American enthusiast myself, I must say, what an extraordinarily well written piece on an epic lifetime journey and what a privilege it has been to read about it. This is not a journey that ends for Jay simply because his time with his mentor Leonard J.

A peace that comes to ones soul within him when they realize that they are such an amazing part of this universe and they find that in the middle of it is the Great Spirit, that man is also a part of. I believe this writer has also come to know that all man is a part of this center with him and the Great Spirit as well. For we are all one, upon a journey in this universe with our own stories.

This one impartiality has touched my heart deeply not simply because I read it, but because I know the writer understands his and has found what is most important. We are all one and I find peace within his. Such a beautiful and inspiring story Open Spaces is. I had taken Native American Spirituality in College many years back, and I remember the profound impact it had on my life then.

I guess I just got so caught up in the busy world to stop and appreciate this culture to the fullness it deserves along with Nature and life. This story has brought the desire back to connect with this beautiful and sacred Earth we take for granted. I am on to the next book now and I am so happy there is one.

Open Spaces; Life With Leonard J. Mountain Chief

I am in tears of joy. Not only do you write so beautifully, but about something I can relate to. I smoked the sacred pipe and raised my arm to the sky in triangle pose, glancing beyond my fingertips to the heavens, and there was the bald eagle soaring in circles high above. A minute later the mergansers quacked there way upriver. Great Spirit was ever so present. I cried tears of deep emotions, and every time I had a breakthrough Spirit showed itself in Nature.

I was overwhelmed with joy. I became reawakened and in tune with God, Great Spirit, Creator. This is what my songs are about…the ones I sing and the ones that come through me. Music flows through me. It is the feeling that is the soul of the song anyway. The music is a gift.

Being guided on the path, living the prayer is the ultimate gift. I have strong faith, yet I seek clarity of the path ahead. In these times of turmoil I seek companionship, community, oneness with nature and oneness with Creator. I choose the path of healing, love and service. I have no name for the path, for there are many. I found myself falling into your stories with my whole body.
