Heartfelt: a Description of a Navajo Peacemaking Process
Recently I watched an interview on conscious-tv with a man called Eric Gross. In enjoyed the interview. And what I especially liked was his description of a peacemaking process by a native American tribe, the Navajo. This description is a separate segment at the end of the interview. When you click this link it starts at that point: http://youtu.be/nOgXs7PfuuA?t=52m7s
What touched me was the reply of the mother when being asked ¨do you love your son?¨ Her reply was: ¨I don´t know¨ There is a deep groundedness to this, free from spiritual idealism about how things should be. And being free from this idealism the heart tends to open. Perhaps there can even be situations in life where someone is being asked the same question and the answer will even be: ¨no, at this moment I don´t love this person.¨ Maybe it´s not a great place to be in, but it´s honest and when dealt with in a gentle way it can be felt in the heart. And even deeper at the roots.
But as you can hear in the video the ¨I don´t know¨ is not being indulged in, although it´s welcome in it´s totality. Rather this contraction is embedded within the sense that there always is a natural connection between people.
