Creation Story from the Hopi Nation

Creator: “I want to hide something from the humans until they are ready for it. It is the realization that they create their own reality”

Eagle: “Give it to me, I will take it to the moon.”

Creator: “No, one day they will go there and find it.”

Salmon: “I will bury it in the bottom of the ocean.”

Creator: “No, they will go there too.”

Buffalo: “I will bury it in the Great Plains.”

Creator: “They will cut into the skin of the Earth and find it even there.”

Grandmother lives in the breast of the Mother Earth and has no physical eyes but sees with spiritual eyes.

Grandmother: “Put it inside them.”

Creator: “It is done.”

Taking the mind for a Walk

Taking the Mind for a walk. I took this picture while travelling with friends along the coast of California. A trip of personal discovery heightened by the presence of amazing beings. Pacifica, CA. 2015

Our Minds are the Creatures

Of the things that we see and the moments we know

Who is to say that we actually can

When do we stay and where do we go

For truth holds a shape which can twist, turn and bend.


But we don’t, and we won’t, that’s the game that we play.

Forward, sideways, fragile but strong.

The point of it all is to not know the way,

to be lost and be found on the search to belong.


In such ignorance we float, yet never really still

cause we paddle like fools for a safe way to go.

Every second combines our faith and our will.

Our minds are the creatures that never stop to grow.

-A poem by Astrid Arlove
