ELDERS DAILY MEDITATIONS
“One of the essential characteristics we need to learn as men was to be gentle, and to be gentle means to be serene, to enter meditation or a prayerful state in the morning and evening.”
–Larry P. Aitken, CHIPPEWA
The most important talk we can do during any day, is to start the day with prayer and meditation. We need to ask the Creator to be in our lives. We ask Him to direct our thinking. We ask Him for the courage and the power to be gentle. In the morning quiet time, we make our request for guidance using our spiritual tools. We pray for the people and we pray for ourselves. In the evening, we thank the Creator for the day, for the lessons and for the opportunity to be of service to others. Then we go to sleep.
Great Spirit, today, show me the power of being gentle.
SOMETHING EXTRA TO THINK ABOUT
Msit Nókmaq/All My Relations,
Starting the day with a thank you to Creator is a great way to get on track for the day. By asking him to use us as he sees fit we allow our self will to be taken care of and guided by the Great one.

Please know I thank you for my life and all you allow me to do. I ask that you continue to guide me so I may walk in your ways and on your path.
