Elder’s Meditation of the Day December 27

“When temptation comes, I don’t say, `Yes,” and I don’t say, `No.’ I say, `Later,’ I just keep walking the Red Road-down the middle. When you’re in the middle, you don’t go to either extreme. You allow both sides to exist.”
–Dr. A. C. Ross (Ehanamani), LAKOTA

We need to practice controlling our focus. Whatever we focus on we become. We also become whatever we practice. We need to focus on balance. Whenever something comes along to tilt us off balance, we need to be grateful, because it allows the opportunity to practice our focus. Sometimes this is called temptation. Temptation in itself is not bad. What really counts is what we do with it when it happens. We need to practice controlling our focus and keeping our thinking focused on the Red Road.

Great Spirit, today, guide me through my temptations and allow me to focus on the Red Road.

SOMETHING EXTRA TO THINK ABOUT

Msit Nókmaq/All My Relations,
We cannot get mixed up with straddling a barbed wire fence. We walk the side that feels most comfortable for us. We let Creator take full control and show us direction.
Arthur Medicine Eagle-Sonier, MEGAMAW

Gitsch Manito-Creator,Wásóq-Spiritworld, Thank you for taking good care of me and helping me to have a better understanding of life and the importance of accepting things rather than resist them.
Welálin/ThankYou,MsitNókmaq,ChiMiigwetch,MitaukeOyasin
