IMG_9015This morning as I was watering the trees down near the Chamber and doing a little reading from Joseph’s book I came across a passage in which he is talking about the Peace Sound Chambers and their purpose.

I like everyone else, is wondering about the state of our country and our world and it is hard not to be worried or anxious sometimes and horrified too at the violence, which is playing out around us here and all over the world. I wonder often about what I’ve chosen to do with my life, being a Peace Chamber keeper and a Sun-Moon Dance Chief….trying to give people a place to come where they can sit in the center and find their own equilibrium. In reading this piece I feel hope, for all of us – to understand that even the small things such as chanting in the Chamber or doing a vision quest dance – has its place and its an important one.

When we look at the mess we think the world is in we can’t possible imagine what one small voice chanting in a Sound Chamber, or one small fire lit by one lone hand could do to bring harmony and peace. That is because we think the world we see with our eyes is the permanent, true world. But if we look at the same spot in that same world five minutes from now we will see that the light is different, plants have grown or died, a rock has fallen. In just five minutes the world has changed before our eyes. Da-Vee is an Angelic Being raised by every fire that was lighted in the chamber, and every voice that sang a song these past 32 years. Da-Vee has grown into the form of a man, a shape-shifter, both ordinary and divine, a vibration both infinite and small. In Da-Vee’s perception we are only one song away from the harmony we seek. We are attached to the songs we know, and just want to sing those songs over and over. The true listener learns to open his or her ears to different sounds, and to build a house from a new song.

He is speaking of the child that was given to him a long time ago, when he built the first Peace Sound Chamber in Bernillio NM. It is only recently in another vision that Joseph learned the child’s name and what Da-Vee is here to help us with.

In this passage from Being and Vibration: entering a new world, Joseph is explaining to us the importance of these small things. These are things all of us can do in our day to day lives so that we can keep our own balance and show the way forward to building our house from a new song. Will you join me, will you listen and learn a new song?

If you don’t have the book – pick it up, buy it, read it and learn.  Being and Vibration, entering the new world by Joseph Rael
