“We’re sitting on our blessed Mother Earth from which we get our strength and determination, love and humility-all the beautiful attributes that we’ve been given. so turn to one another; love one another; respect one another; respect Mother Earth; respect the waters-because that’s life itself!”
–Phil Lane, Sr. YANKTON SIOUX
Our entire point of view can be altered by making one change to align with the principles of the Great Spirit. Let’s say we decide to become respectful. As we become respectful, our attitude will change. We will automatically draw into our lives knowledge about the other principles of the Great Spirit such as love, appreciation, trust, beauty, peace of mind. By focusing on these principles, we will let go of selfishness, self centeredness, self pity, dishonesty and fear. You focus on respect, you get respect; you focus on love, you get love; you focus on the Red
Road, you get peace of mind.
Great Spirit, let me learn the lessons of respect.
SOMETHING EXTRA TO THINK ABOUT
Msit Nókmaq/All My Relations,
With all of the problems in todays world We need to try showing more love and kindness to each other instead of backstabbing and treachery. We need to get rid of the ill feelings towards others and look at our selves.What we see in others is like looking into a mirror.Arthur Medicine Eagle-Sonier, MEGAMAW
Gitsch Manito-Creator,Wásóq-Spiritworld, Please help me to not be so judging and also please help me to find good love to give to all humans. Most of all I ask that you first show me how to love my self. Once that has happened then I know I will be able to love others in the way you want.
