As a Preview
In this episode, James touches on Indian Americans. He goes on to talk about their style of faith. James also discusses his song Rain Dance, which came about as a result of a brutal heat wave and how the idea for this song came together. As you listen, get to know more about James’ first full length CD, "175 Cherry Lane" which was also self-produced. Also, learn about the Crazy Horse Memorial all on this episode of the Dharmic Evolution.
I’ve always believed the American Indian is such a special breed of person.
What is being an American anymore? It’s hard to put your finger on that.
Because they didn’t have the same name we are using (referring to God) doesn’t mean they didn’t have faith. They had stronger faith than most cultures and revered nature so beautifully.
If you don’t believe in prayer, you might think about making a gesture towards prayer, and if you put some energy and some intellectual capacity into prayer, you might get surprised and might want to do it more often.
