ELDERS DAILY MEDITATIONS
“It can be 100 degrees in the shade one afternoon and suddenly there comes a storm with hailstones as big as golf balls, the prairie is all white and your teeth chatter. That’s good-a reminder that you are just a small particle of nature, not so powerful as you think.”
–Lame Deer, LAKOTA
No event, no relationship, no joy, no sadness, no situation ever stays the same. Every setback is only temporary. Even setbacks change. Why? Because the Great Spirit designed the world to be constantly changing. We are not the center of the universe, we are but a small part. The whole is constantly changing, and we as humans are constantly participating in the change. We have two choices, to resist change or participate in the change. Every change can be resisted, and every change can be made in cooperation. What will I choose today, resistance or cooperation?
Great Spirit, teach me to make cooperative changes.
SOMETHING EXTRA TO THINK ABOUT
Msit Nókmaq/All My Relations,
When we look into a clear sky after dark we can see millions of lights glimmering. Maybe we can visualize this as being humans on the earth. Then we can look to see we are so small in such a Great Hoop called Life. Where did we come from? Where are we going? We do know something Greater made it all and put it into motion. The same is in motion when we want to hurry things. What many fail to see is when we wish to hurry the day up at work we are choosing to make our life a little bit shorter. We should do all we can in a day to make certain our life is long lived and many good things have been provided for others.
