The Ancient Ones believe that based on our deeds in this world, some spirits are imprisoned in a purgatory like existence between worlds, side by side, within multiple dimensions. When loved ones seeking atonement are taken too soon from this world and forced to cross over, part of their penitence leaves them trapped between worlds, desperately clinging to soul mates left behind. As their song of lover’s lament attempts to hold back the wheel of time, their eternal bond lingers in the ether of fleeting desperation. For now, they are but Wind Talkers, grasping for each other in the mist of dreams and those ephemeral moments the between the shadow and the light, between the iridescent hues of twilight and dawn.
Native American proverbs teach us, “Day and night can’t live together,” and “There can be no rainbow without our tears.” True, but I choose to believe that for some of us, “Dreams are the truth, until we awaken.” And as Henry David Thoreau opined, “Our truest life is when we are in dreams awake.” I’m with HDT on this one..
