After a warrior has fought his last battle, eternal sleep comes to his body. His spirit goes to a new home. The warrior makes one more journey, the journey to the Spirit world. His journey is long and hard. He faces his last struggle as he travels great distances over mountains and valleys. When he finally reaches the mighty river, it is the longest he has ever seen. He slowly enters the blue water. The sky gets darker. His journey has been nearly impossible. He drags himself out of the water and falls to the ground. The warrior then hears a loud voice calling "Mighty warrior - follow me. You must not abandon your journey to the Spirit world." His journey is over - and he is welcomed home.
Some background: I am using the raven as a symbol of the warrior's spirit as it flies towards its last home. Many of the ancient Choctaw symbols resemble other tribes which I find so fascinating. When contemplating this story, I used symbols I thought reflected the difficult journey towards the Great Spirit. The blue symbolizes the water and the black the mountains. At the center is the Great Spirit and total peace.
