Gratitude is a pathway to freedom!
Being thankful is not to be complacent or accepting of the limits of our existence but an act of centering. Haudenosaunee give thanks to the Sun, Earth, Moon, Animals, Plants, Wind and Waters, in this way taking rightful possession of humanness and our place in the Universe.
Even at the very last moment of our time on Earth we must give thanks for the chance to have lived; liberating ourselves for our ultimate flight into infinity…
Why is being grateful liberating?
No matter who we are or where we are from, from the moment of our birth until the moment we die, we have nothing. We are perceivers. Our opportunity is to perceive the wondrous worlds around us, to add a glow and a gracefulness to our being.
We can share our grace and our beauty, we can dance and we can sing about it. When we give thanks, no one and nothing can take this from us – we are free.
Join us to celebrate your thankfulness, your beauty and your freedom at Shakori Hills GrassRoots Festival of Music & Dance!
