For me, the desire to know more is the true beauty of the South American
path. For how we learn is through wondering, questioning, and desiring
to know the answers. Their questions - "Where are you?", "Where shall
my soul dwell?", and "Where is my home?" - are those which all systems
of religious belief try to answer. "Hear me, answer me, acknowledge me,
give us perpetual life, hold us forever within your hand" is what mankind
truly seeks from God, from religion, and from their lifetimes of
experience on Earth.
Prayer Index: Native Faiths - South American
Creator! You who dwell at the ends of the earth unrivaled, you who
gave being and power to men, saying to man: "let this be man!" and
saying to woman: "let this be woman!" So saying, you made them,
shaped them, gave them being.
These you created; watch over them! Let them be safe and well,
unharmed, living in peace. Where are you? Up in the sky? Or down
below? In clouds? In storms? Hear me, answer me, acknowledge me,
give us perpetual life, hold us forever within your hand. Receive
the offering wherever you are, Creator!
