ELDERS DAILY MEDITATIONS
The Old Man said, `you are both ugly and handsome and you must accept your ugliness as well as your handsomeness in order to really accept yourself.”
–Larry P. Aitken, CHIPPEWA
My Grandfather told me one time that any person who is judgmental to another is also judgmental to themselves. If we want to be free of being judgmental, we need to first work on how judgmental we are to ourselves. If we quit judging ourselves and start accepting ourselves as we are, we will start accepting others as they are. Then we will experience a level of new freedom.
Great Spirit, let me accept myself as I am honoring both my strengths and my weaknesses.
SOMETHING EXTRA TO THINK ABOUT
Msit Nókmaq/All My Relations,
Have you ever heard the story about, The Man in the mirror? When we look at another and judge them we are actually finding faults that lay within our own mindset. We are seeing things that glow like radiant sun light but refusing to look in the mirror to see our own selves one on one. What we see in others is usually something that is showing in our own selves.
