As long as Moses held up the staff in his hand, his team had the advantage. But whenever he dropped his hand, his opponents gained the advantage.
When Moses’ hands grew tired, they took a stone and put it under him and he sat on it. Aaron and Hur held his hands up–one on one side, one on the other–so that his hands remained steady till sunset.

Te whakatauki a Te Wairua - A ka maiangi ake te ringa o Mohi, na, ka kaha a Iharaira; a ka tukua iho tona ringa, na, ka kaha a Amareke.
In ancient times, before European contact in Aotearoa, New Zealand, Maori Chiefs used a Tewhatewha to signal a war party into different positions as they strategically tried to outwit their opponents. Within the rohe (the ancestrally allocated tribal region) of the Ngai Tahu iwi (tribe) of Otautahi, Christchurch, a tewhatewha came into our view – denoting strategic leadership in community.
Via Australia Nine News, comes this report of bravery in good strategic rescue mobilization and leadership skills being rewarded for good leadership amidst the recent Christchurch Earthquake ordeal.
“The Christchurch police chief leading the response to the city’s devastating earthquake has been presented with an important Maori tewhatewaha (a carved stick). Superintendent Dave Cliff was presented with a tewhatewha — a traditional Maori weapon which signifies authority, strategy and mobilisation.”
In addition the Otago Daily Times reports, Bay of Plenty District Commander Superintendent Dunbier had asked master carvers in Rotorua to select a “gift of significance” for Mr Cliff, who said it had made him proud.
Perhaps the whole town of Christchurch deserves a tewhatewha for being so amazing like Dave is. Strong people. Strong communities are very cool.
This next picture of Tewhatewha detail as crafted by Todd Cooper of The Ngati Kahungungu iwi (tribe) of Hawkes Bay New Zealand, made of maire wood, pheasant and hawke feathers, courtesy of Spirit Wrestler. The flat detail resembles a whale’s tale, symbolizing great strength.
Tewhatewha III is made of kanuka wood, with paua shell eyes, feather tassel, hand-made Muka (flax) fibre cordage. It was created by Wiremu (William) Wilson-Diamond.
Tewhatewha IV is via the Takitimu/ Mataatua waka tribes of Ngati Kahungungu, Ngai Tuhoe and Ngati Awa.
May The 4 (x2) be with US, then as a symbol of tactical wisdom. :)

Born this way – I believe that all children of the world were born to have access to clean drinking water whenever they need it.
BTW: At the moment 1 billion people don’t. 2 million children die through not having access to clean drinking water each year.
Born this way to drink clean water – is these kids and their parents’ dream day. We can make it a dream day everyday for them. Let’s make it happen fun people, by clicking on UNICEF’S TAP PROJECT link. Let’s FLOW! Thanks groovy people.

Sometimes I feel like a waterfall in West Hollywood, that just won’t stop. Where the water comes from within the spirit that feels dry, jaded, tired on grey winters days, ironically on days when it pours with rain – I don’t know.
One thing I do know, is that 2 million innocent children, die each year in our world, on our watch, regardless of what flags we wave above our heads, or what parades we have under them for whatever reasons to gratify our own sense of worth and identity. While our flags flap around in the wind, the lives of these children do too and many die because they don’t have access to clean drinking water. They get sick, their lives and their potential in this world are cut short.
Sometimes I wish, that people who are told and even say themselves that they are Kings & Queens would rise up like the legend of Moses in a dry desert, and take the wooden staff of their generation’s destiny and dare to strike the rock of greed, of apathy, or blindness, of entitlement, of nationalism, of hatred, of extreme and costly ‘paper gangsta’ capitalism, of those attitudes of detachment masked in those nonhuman words ‘that’s them and not us,’ of leader’s pride, human blind spots and prejudices; and our own too judging these leaders who are at best, mirrors of ourselves that we elected in many cases (or, the flip side too of letting go of the paralyzing and crippling fear of extreme loss and grief that inevitably follows in that degree of sudden loss too, it’s all the same constructed coin)–and these royals of the earth would say “enough, let these children go free” and cause water to flow to children they don’t know, whose parents they’ve never seen, whose dreams are more real than us at times or our bank balance or the figure we are told of our paper worth or lack of, or the excitement in our allocated and imagined carbon credit worth too. We are so green thinking these days!
[Excuse the Kerouac-esque lack of punctuating all proper, in that last paragraph].
Then I realise, sh*t, these Kings and Queens are on this blog everyday. They’re you and on a good day – I could be in your good company too. On a good day. Giving the gift of water to someone else is perhaps the most powerful thing we can do in the 2010′s. One of the true signs we have actually evolved with all of enjoyment and claims of new technology et al that have radically changed our lives. Giving water and saying to someone else, “I love you and you are much loved” are two simple yet vital things we can do each day.

A prayer request for the locum.
“Yahweh-Rapha, the Lord who heals you.” Rapha means “to mend, to cure, to repair, to make whole.”–Exodus 15
“One day these hands will touch the world”–Rachel Scott of Columbine–her teen words at the altar of precious American Life, written in her bedroom and traced in faith–like twin palms of a precious lamb posted on… [blog] wood for a beloved Daughter, Sister, Aunty, Cousin, Friend and Mother of LA.
The Theological thinking: “Are any of you sick? You should call for the elders of the church to come and pray over you, anointing you with oil in the name of the Lord. Such a prayer offered in faith will heal the sick, and the Lord will make you well. And if you have committed any sins, you will be forgiven.”–James 5: 14
[Mood: Elisha's Prayer of Faith + Gabriel Ataya. Prayer of healing for Aunt E]
~A good read: Miracle at Marah – Exod. 15).Music: Kevin Prosch as spirit food for a “Hinn” of healing oil that comes without price in America in the 2010′s for all who are sick and have need of a Physician. Posted by Horiwood.Com, Hollywood California USA. 6.15.2010. Tallis of Elisha, courtesy of This Blog~
Result: After the prayer of faith with anointing oil was made with Uncle Emile, Aunt Elvira prayed, smiled and said in prayer: “Father God (Abba Father) I See You.”
