What a glorious day we had here at our Center!
The weather was crisp and bright and so was our beautiful choir singing to welcome the season and to celebrate Hannukah.
While the service was going on, I finally got to see The Hawk that has been gracing our Sundays with his/her presence. A few people have told me lately, that a beautiful hawk had been hanging out during our services on Sunday but I had not as yet had the pleasure of seeing the bird. Today, he/she sat on the black railing after taking a bath in the puddle on the patio. Extraordinary! This hawk clearly had come to ‘roost’ (forgive the pun) and bask in our energy and share his/her glory with us, too.
Aimee Matilla and Sharon Salz answered my questions as to what the Hawk might represent at this time; what was the animal totem significance for me. Aimee said:
Hawks represent clarity of vision; being able to see the bigger picture. Imagine being a hawk flying high in the sky and being able to see a mouse in the field and zooming in on it. Sharon added that the Hawk receives the message from the Eagle (who gets it from God) and then it goes to Crow who delivers it to the people.
For that is what I/we are all about right now.
As we gather and collaborate as a spiritual community on the future for our Center, I am charged to articulate the Vision from the Great Spirit and bring it back to the people. The Hawk has come to remind me of our work together.
So blessed. So blessed.
