Elder’s Meditation of the Day November 21

“In the absence of the sacred, nothing is sacred — everything is for sale.” –Oren Lyons, ONONDAGA

The Elders often say that when something is sacred it has spiritual value. You’ll hear, on the Earth there are sacred spots. You’ll hear, our ceremonies are sacred, our children are sacred, marriage is sacred. When something is sacred it means it’s so holy you can’t attach a value to it. Therefore, it’s not for sale. It’s an insult to suggest buying something sacred. On the other hand, if we look at it differently, as there is no sacred land, ceremonies are not sacred, our children are not sacred, etc., then everything is for sale. Sacredness creates spiritual space. Sacredness makes things holy. Sacredness shows respect for God.

Great Spirit, let me honor things that are sacred.



Msit Nókmaq/All My Relations,
Creator made everything so It really is Sacred, It has been the minds of mankind who reformed the Sacredness due to seeing that man can become rich, famous and treat others as lesser humans. We should go back to the original ways instead of killing off everything we have, because Religions have taught us hatred and greed. They also teach disrespect of our earth by saying man is superior over all things. This gives an excuse to justify their means. Arthur Medicine Eagle-Sonier, MEGAMAW

Gitsch Manito-Creator,Wásóq-Spiritworld, Please help me to understand the great destruction that is being done. Please help me to not fear the outcome of anything. Please help me to re learn respect in your proper ways and not mans ways. Welálin/ThankYou,MsitNókmaq,ChiMiigwetch,MitaukeOyasin
