- Give-away- Your sacred dream, your sacred service to life and others. (p.214, Song of the Deer)
We do what we do that appears to be good and beneficial, not because it is our medicine or give-away, but because it makes us feel good to be helping someone else who is worse off than we are. (p.124, Song of the Deer)
- Great Creative Life Force of the Universe- I use this term because it gives me a sense of the formless, creative, divine force that some call God. The term God, more often than not, creates in my mind an image of a white man with a white beard sitting up in the sky.
- Levada- “a Portuguese word derived from the word “levar” – which means to carry and is roughly translated as “carriageway”, but more correctly defined as mini-canal. The mini-canals are irrigation systems developed to distribute water from the rainfall heavy and wet regions on the north of Madeira island to the drier sun parched regions of the south.” Source
