Thanks Water Hawk for that bit of back ground.
Yes I agree "whatever is done with a pure heart can not be done wrong" on my path which is a mixture of what I find and what I learn (no specific name/inclination) if something feels right and that I am connected to the land and nature while doing it/deepens the connection then I do it! somedays it does not feel appropriate, sometimes other things are needed. There are so many times now that singing Awen doesnt do it. saying "I honour you" doesnt honour, but saying "Namaste" is more of a prayer. I used to think you couldnt mix things, pantheons, traditions, but now I understand from stories and movement that they are all a way of connecting with the same energy. In different lands, they have different names, and tradtional ways of doing things, but energy is a moving force, and so doing something like "quoting" the same words everyday, doesnt move with that energy, it recalls the energy of the first time, maybe a few times after that. (Going off on one here!)
but everyday is different, the energy has changed, the Dance of Life done at the camp, was in a different place to where I live, but now if I do the Dance in my kitchen, I am pulling in those energies around me, and sending them out to the world, an exchange of energy with a little of mine sent out too!
I dont know what the words Ama tiki waa mean, but they feel right, they feel good.
I am connecting with myself through acknowledging what is around me, and working with the energy, and exchanging energy.
There you go!
There is a time and a place for everything - mine is HERE and NOW.
