ELDERS DAILY MEDITATIONS
“The spirit still has something for us to discover-an herb, a sprig, a flower-a very small flower, maybe you can spend a long time in its contemplation, thinking about it.”
–Lame Deer, LAKOTA
The world today is about hurry up! get there faster! Work harder, produce more, hurry up, eat quickly, be on time, don’t get stressed – headaches, conflict, drink to calm down, go to training on stress management, time management-STOP! STOP! STOP! STOP! STOP! STOP! STOP! Go spend 5 minutes with a flower or a plant. Look at it-think about it-look at its beauty, smell it, close your eyes and smell it again. Touch it; touch with your eyes closed. Listen to it; listen to it with your eyed closed. Slow your mind down. Think about the little things. Now close your eyes and pray.
Great Spirit, this feeling of calmness that I have, let me have it all day long.
SOMETHING EXTRA TO THINK ABOUT
Msit Nókmaq~All My Relations,
In the past twenty years wages have not increased very much for many people. Companies want to pay less money and then divide profits with people who do not even do the footwork to keep the company going. It takes manpower not executives. How many executives can actually go into a facility and operate any machinery they supposedly own or hold stock in? People are being suppressed on a daily basis,not just Indian people but the circle is now coming back to the ones whose grandfathers stole our lands. Is the way of thinking here honorable? Is the idea of intimidating people a good way to live? The country’s borders are open for immigrants to walk right in and steal jobs from the taxpayers of this land. Cities are now offering the illegals jobs without paying any taxes but someone has to foot the bill. It seems that our leadership is crumbling due to their greediness. We need to pray for their sick minds that they get back in focus instead of worry about how much money they can steal from the people. Creator has not walked out on us we shut him out by not doing his will instead of our own.

Gitsch Manito-Creator, Wásóq-Spiritworld, In this day I humbly pray you will help us to find peace and to stop the greediness of people. I ask that the destroying of our earth over a dollar bill be stopped. Please have pity on us weak humans.
Welálin-ThankYou, Msit Nókmaq, Chi-Miigwetch, Mitauke Oyasin
