Building the lodge

Building a sweat lodge/
is what this life is about/
we do this daily../

I have succesfully completed another Simba Camp and I am back still recoverying, physically and emotinally (so give me time to get back on schedule). Now my real walk and work begins. I must build the sweat lodge of my life so that I can proudly again sit with the creator, my ancestors, and the spirits of the universe. When we focus on this Journey we find that many of the rituals that we practice, are just that practice for living. In helping build the Sweat lodge I was able to reflect on the work that I put in this world, and this time I found myself worthy to sit amongst my brothers and elders to pray and sing. Hopefully you take time in your life for ritual and realize that the ritual is preparing us for the world. The real sweat comes from the work that we do in the world not from the trials of the ritual. So next time you are involved in one of your sacred rituals (which you should have if you are on the Journey, check the Player's Pyramid book if you don't understand) you will be able to reflect positively on the work you have done away from the ritual. So build your lodge little by little as you live life, and not just in the rituals that you do.
