We here at Eco Wind Chimes love reading your emails and stories about how special our products are to you. We recently received a very nice letter from a lady who performed a Native American blessing on her wind chimes. She said every time the chimes chime- she knows the blessing is spreading into the air and among her neighbors. What a nice thought. For those of you who are interested in this tradition, the blessing is below.
Earth teach me stillness
as the grasses are stilled with light.
Earth teach me suffering
as old stones suffer with memory.
Earth teach me humility
as blossoms are humble with beginning.
Earth Teach me caring
as the mother who secures her young.
Earth teach me courage
as the tree which stands alone.
Earth teach me limitation
as the ant which crawls on the ground.
Earth teach me freedom
as the eagle which soars in the sky.
Earth teach me resignation
as the leaves which die in the fall.
Earth teach me regeneration
as the seed which rises in the spring.
Earth teach me to forget myself
as melted snow forgets its life.
Earth teach me to remember kindness
as dry fields weep in the rain.
