Elder’s Meditation of the Day December 25

“When you see a new trail, or a footprint that you do not know, follow it to the point of knowing.”
–Grandmother of Charles Eastman, SANTEE SIOUX

We never gain new knowledge or new experience unless we are willing to take risks. It’s good to be curious. Also, it pays to be cautious. Walk in balance. The path of the Warrior is filled with opportunities to seek new knowledge. As we travel down the Red Road, we will run into trails of opportunity. Down each of these trails are experiences from which we will learn. Experience plus action is the beginning of knowledge.”

Great Spirit, help me to make good choices in choosing only the trails You would have me take.

 

SOMETHING EXTRA TO THINK ABOUT

Msit Nókmaq/All My Relations,
An Elder once told me “If you ever get lost in the woods keep walking the same direction and you will eventually come to a road, Do not walk in the dark of night”. This could apply to our daily learning process. Often we come to forks in the road and if we look at the wear on the road or path, we will see which has been the most traveled and may possibly lead to a main road. But the end result is that We must make the final decision or choice.
