~Lao-tzu / Tao Te Ching
"he first sound every Human being hears is the double heartbeat. In our Mother's watery womb, we experience a sense of security and belonging because we hear our own heartbeats echoed by that of the Mother who carries us for nine months. When we are drawn into our Earth Walk through the miracle of birth, the second heartbeat disappears. Human beings know on a deep level that something is missing. They are looking for the second heartbeat.
The missing heartbeat is found when we listen to our Earth Mother and enter Tiyoweh, the Stillness. In that place of silence we can feel the vibration and hear the heart beat of the Earth. Through that experience we can rediscover our sense of security and belonging. The Earth Mother's heartbeat tells us we are never alone. Our true Mother, the Earth is always present to nurture us and gives us rest. All she asks is that we stop and listen for the second heartbeat."
