Elder’s Meditation of the Day February 1

“You can’t just sit down and talk about the truth. It doesn’t work that way. You have to live it and be part of it and you might get to know it.” –Rolling Thunder, CHEROKEE …
We all read books that have much information in them. Often we pick up on little sayings that we remember. Inside of us is the little owl, the owl of knowing. It talks to us- guiding us and nurturing us. Often when we get information, it’s hard to live by, but it’s easy to talk about. It’s living the Red Road that counts-Walk the Talk. If we really want freedom in our lives, if we really want to be happy, if we really want to have peace of mind, it’s the truth we must seek.
My Creator, help me in my search for the truth today.
Msit Nókmaq/All My Relations,
When we read something it is always good to not believe it all until we investigate it. Often things are written as opinions of others and not completely of truth. We must seek that truth so we do not end up treating another person nasty because of gossip or written mis-information. In order to have freedom and peace of mind one must allow others the right to live their lives accordingly instead of people trying to control them. Controlling comes in a few disguises. PRIDE; excessive belief in one’s own abilities, that interferes with the individual’s recognition of the grace of Creator. Pride is also known as Vanity. ENVY; the desire for others’ traits, status, abilities, or situation. GLUTTONY; an inordinate desire to consume more than that which one requires. LUST; an inordinate craving for the pleasures of the body. ANGER; manifested in the individual who spurns love and opts instead for fury. It is also known as Wrath. GREED; the desire for material wealth or gain, ignoring the realm of the spiritual. It is also called Avarice or Covetousness. SLOTH; the avoidance of physical or spiritual work.
