"Oh the river is wide
the river it touches my life like the waves on the sand
all roads lead to Tranquility Base
Where the frown on my face disappears
Take me down to my boat on the river
and I won't cry out anymore"
This favorite song by Styx describes faith as a boat on the river. It is a beautifully moving song that
we've written about once before but is worth repeating. The biggest problem we have today is a lack of
faith. In the beginning, a subtle but huge deception shook all of mankind's faith to the core. This lie af-
fects how we view ourselves to this day. Back in the garden, the serpent said to the woman and the man,
that if they disobeyed God and took from the forbidden fruit, "they would become as Gods themselves."
The thing is, they already were! They were children of God, made in his image, with all that goes with it.
They just stopped seeing themselves that way because of the deceptive words. Because of the disobedi-
ence, the way to eternal life had been shut, but they still were and we still are divine sons and daughters

of the most powerful and holy spirit of all. We have the power of Gods to do anything good that we
set ourselves to do, if we have faith in our power to do it. The redeemer calmed the stormy waters and
then said to his disciples, "Why are you so timid? How is it that you have no faith?"(Mark 4:39-40) The
Serving Southwest Colorado
answer is because they knew not their heritage. So, you now know that you have the power. "Do not be

afraid any longer, only believe."(Mark 5:36) Then you will be able to climb aboard that boat of faith and
watch that frown on your face disappear.

The silverhawk feather that graces our front page was chosen for it's significant spiritual sym-
bolism. Hawks are symbols of spirit, wisdom and power. The hawk is the messenger. It is also
about visionary power and guardianship, the hawk is very protective of the young in its nest.
It teaches us about providing for family and self. Hawk teaches us to be observant and to pay
attention to what we may overlook. This could mean a talent we don't use, a blessing for which
we haven't expressed gratitude, or a message from Spirit. The hawk has keen eyesight, it is about
Calling All Angels! Help us in `bringing
opening our eyes and seeing that which is there to guide us. Hawk is also about new beginnings
