on belonging to the earth and beyond

“In the village, life is directly inspired by the earth, by the trees, by the hills and rivers. We live at the threshold between the ancestor world—the world of spirit—and the human world.” Sobonfu Somé, Dagara “keeper of the rituals”

As I read these healing words yesterday, it came to me strong that our villages rest on the portals of all that is or ever was. We are not strangers here. We belong to the earth and to what lies beyond.
