“Life, the circle, a measurement with no beginning and no end.”
–Phillip Deere, MUSKOGEE-CREEK
The circle teaches us how the Creator made things and how to live. It teaches us how we should look at creation. Life travels in a circle. In the East is the baby, to the South is the youth, in the West is the adult and in the North is the Elder. Then we return to the Earth Mother to start the cycle again. We observe what is `around us’ from the center of the circle. This develops our point of view. We must be careful not to become self-centered.
Great Spirit, let me observe life from the circle’s point of view.
SOMETHING EXTRA TO THINK ABOUT
Msit Nókmaq/All My Relations,
The teaching of the directions and the part we have in the circle of life are important. Yet we are just another spoke in the wheel helping to support something greater than self. If we choose a spot on a circle and follow it around to the place we started we pass every point and place once and then we are ready to start again.
