The new Santana album "Shape Shifter"is dedecate to all natve people from Australia to the Turtle island.Bisides the pretty music on the back side of the cover is printed a very strong prayer.I persume to give it with big respect to all members of the forum.
Oh Great Spirit,
whose voice I hear in the wind,
And whose breath gives life to all the world.
I am small and weak,
I need your strengh and wisdom.
Let me walk in beauty and make my eyes
ever behold the red and purple sunset.
Make my hands respect the things you have made
and my ears sharp to hear your voice.
Make me wise so that I may understand the
things you have tougth my people.
Let me learn the lessons you have hidden
in every leaf and rock.
I seek a strengh,not to be greater that my brodhers,
but to fitht my greatest enimy-myself.
Make me always ready to come to you with
clean hands and straigth eyes.
So when life fades ,as the fading sunsed
my spirit may come yo you withaut shame.
