Spirituality & Peace Sunday: The Blessing Way is Living The Loving Way Recorded on Aug 31, 2014 on The Shift Network

With Patricia Anne Davis, MA: International Teacher and Traditional Healer

Hosted by Myra Jackson

Hozho is a Navajo concept that describes an all-encompassing concept of holiness and wholeness within the natural-order context from an indigenous language worldview. Any person can learn to use their sacred-SELF intellect to discover the co-creative solution by learning how to make win-win decisions for collective survival. All healing occurs within an Affirmative-thinking system and the four phases of a healing process lead to curing, not coping, when using thinking in holistic alignment with our sacred-SELF identity as a precious child of Creator.

Poem: Beautiful Child

HOZHO

Beautiful Children, we are

All of us
From the EAST, born spiritually holy
Created of the air, fire, water and earth with divine light and love

Beautiful Youth, we are
All of us
From the SOUTH, we learn how to make a living to travel in life

Beautiful Parents, we are
All of us
From the WEST, we gather to celebrate spiritual family love
our fireplace, hearth and home in ceremony

Beautiful Grandparents, we are
All of us
From the NORTH, we renew
SELF-Reverence and Reverence for Mother Earth and Father Sky

Beautiful people, we are
All of us
Traveling the four corn-pollen footsteps with all our relatives
All is created in beauty

Lovecurrency

What is Lovecurrency*?

When living the loving way as a way of life, our identity is experienced through our spiritual family love and our holy relationship.  Lovecurrency is a synergistic and exponential effect of using power within, from creator, to have power with others.

This social medicine is experienced as the act of being loved and of loving others.

*Joseph Trinh: “My hope for America is that love can be a currency for spiritual healing and abundance”

Walking in Beauty

Walking in Beauty: “hozho naasha”

The four cardinal directions principles defined below are the “beauty way path” in the sense that beauty exists within us and around us as the light reflects through a rainbow.  The symbol of the rainbow is our sovereign communication with creator.

The principles placed within the four cardinal directions are blessingway teaching translated to English as “the four corn-pollen footsteps”: child-youth-adult-elder.

hozho” – means “natural order.”  The term natural order is temporal time, cardinal directions, cycles of seasons correlated with principles placed in the four cardinal directions for a life journey:

  • EAST – child: sunrise-spring-spiritual moral standards for living
  • SOUTH – youth: noon-summer-learning/work/transportation
  • WEST – parent: sunset-autumn-family/home/story-telling/ceremony
  • NORTH – grandparent: midnight-winter-SELF-reverence/reverence for the natural order/hope/restoring resources
  • CENTER: fireplace/hearth of home – spiritual family love

Once one has experienced a ceremonial change process to correct the state of dis-ease/disease, their journey is in the natural order.  Then we are  living the loving way, in right relationship to the elements of the four cardinal directions.  When we travel through life in this way we are walking in beauty.

Wealthcare

What is Wealthcare?

There is an all encompassing concept of holiness and wholeness within the organic natural order context from an Indigenous language worldview  simplified here:

Interpersonal  –  powerwithin

  • Air:      Spiritual
  • Fire:     Mental
  • Water: Emotive
  • Earth:   Physical

Intrapersonal  –  powerwith

  • Corn symbol: social/economic well-being.

The above description of organic unity expresses individuality interrelated within the universal laws of nature where no deficient self-image can exist.  When the spiritual SELF-identity is denied, a dis-ease condition results in the many  manifested diseases.  The concept of understanding health as our true wealth for productive and creative living is the strategy and content of wealthcare concepts within a natural order context.

Co-Creative Solutions

“Co-creative solutions” means manifesting power within, from creator, that radiates love for ourselves in order to have power with others and eliminates the need for power over.

The spiritual lessen of self-betrayal of our spiritual SELF-identity is corrected by loving the creator the way the creator love us.  Then we can love ourselves the way creator loves us.  Only then can we love others the way creator loves us and the way we love ourselves.  Love must be received and given in this order from the inside-out, not the outside-in.

The context of the co-creative solution begins in the Navajo term “hozho” – meaning “natural order.”  The term natural order is temporal time, cardinal directions, cycles of seasons correlated with principles placed in the four cardinal directions for a life journey:

  • EAST – child: sunrise-spring-spiritual moral standards for living
  • SOUTH – youth: noon-summer-learning/work/transportation
  • WEST – parent: sunset-autumn-family/home/story-telling/ceremony
  • NORTH – grandparent: midnight-winter-SELF-reverence/reverence for the natural order/hope/restoring resources
  • CENTER: fireplace/hearth of home – spiritual family love

The spiritual lesson in these crisis times and awakening of the conscience is that win-lose decisions create no-win for everyone.  Thus, each person is requested to learn why and how to make decisions for win-win, away from destructive and death-producing choices, toward constructive and life-affirming choices.

Win-win decision making” is discovering and using one’s gifts for collective survival.  Every person’s inherent gift supports another person’s survival.  Every person can give healthy expression to their gifts and everyone benefits by the healthy expression of each person using their creative imagination for collective survival.

To bring a person out of the Inverse thinking system of Dis-Ease/Disease and into a Wellbeing Continuum, we must co-create wellness using an Affirmative thinking system;  we must undo a deficient self image by co-creating life-affirming choices utilizing our sacred-SELF intellect.

To move out of the abyss of coping, we use a healing process that cures the co-opted self that is created by the allopathic disease orientation.  The co-creative solution is discovered using an Affirmative thinking system that can be applied to everyday life situations.

Living the Loving Way

A Teaching of Indigenous Wisdom and Knowledge

Living the loving way, as a way of life, is hozhooji in the Navajo language.  “Hozho” is an all encompassing concept of holiness and wholeness where there are not competing collectivities representing competing ideologies. “ji” is to sing some one back to health.  All healing ceremonies sing a person back to health.

Hozhooji is the blessing way ceremony for remembering and reawakening to our spiritual SELF-identity as a precious child of creator. The phrase “living the loving way” is the literal translation of a way of life choosing constructive and life-affirming choices – healing, not destroying self and others.

Living the loving way, as a way of life, is a reverent revolution that re-frames inequity in resource distribution away from the forced-choice purchasing of the products and services that support the financial rich, into using one’s inherent gifts for the benefit of each person, their family, community and nation from elder to the youth of the next generation.

The spiritual lesson in these crisis times and awakening of the conscience is that win-lose decisions create no-win for everyone.  Thus, each person is requested to learn why and how to make decisions for win-win, away from destructive and death-producing choices, toward constructive and life-affirming choices.

Win-win decision making” is discovering and using one’s gifts for collective survival.  Every person’s inherent gift supports another person’s survival.  Every person can give healthy expression to their gifts and everyone benefits by the healthy expression of each person using their creative imagination for collective survival.
