Elder’s Meditation of the Day February 5

 “Let the person I serve express his thanks according to his own bringing up and his sense of humor.” –Charles A. Eastman (Ohiyesa), SANTEE SIOUX …
“It is better to give than receive.” But it doesn’t really matter if we are giving or receiving. There is an identical feeling associated with both. We get this feeling every time we receive. We can’t control when we receive gifts but we can control when we give gifts. Therefore, the more we give, the better we feel. When we are given gifts, or someone does something for us, it is the Indian way to honor this person.
Great Spirit, let me honor and be respectful to those who are good to me today.
Msit Nókmaq/All My Relations, When a person offers us a gift we often say, “That wasn’t necessary” or some shy group of words but we fail to realize the person gifting us is doing it most likely from their heart. We must learn to receive with Honor and give with Honor. Our ways have always shown us to give and when we think the giving is done give more. This keeps us from self.

Gitsch Manito-Creator, Wásóq-Spiritworld, Thank you for showing me how to accept and how to give. Thank you for showing me the feelings I get when another person is in refusal of my gift because this in turn tells me I would not want another human to experience those same inadequate or insecure feelings when they are gifting me. Welálin-ThankYou, Msit Nókmaq, Chi-Miigwetch, Mitauke Oyasin
