ELDERS DAILY MEDITATIONS
“Every thing or living being that exists in this world, be it trees, flowers, birds, grasses, rocks, soil of the earth, or human beings, has its unique manner of existence –its essence, its spirit that makes it what it is. That is what is meant by connectedness.”
–Larry P. Aitken, CHIPPEWA
Scientists are finally realizing what the Elders have taught for thousands of years-every- thing is connected. Because everything is interconnected, whatever you do to any one thing, you do to everything. If you poison any part of the earth, the poison eventually affects everything else. If you poison the plants, the birds will eat the plants, which poisons the birds. The birds are eaten by humans which poisons the humans. The humans will have babies who could be deformed because the plants were poisoned. We must learn to live in harmony with the earth. We must learn to think good things. Every good thought is felt by everything, which causes everything to be happy.
Creator, let my thoughts only be good thoughts.
SOMETHING EXTRA TO THINK ABOUT
Msit Nókmaq/All My Relations,
All my relations is a term to connectedness but quite a few fail to realize it. The term is used quite loosely now days but some stand by what it means and they walk the walk and talk the talk 24/7/365 days a year. Their connection to all things are well known and versed. We kill mosquitoes and other insects because we seem to believe they are pests, We kill coyotes and other four leggeds because we build our homes in the areas where the four legged lived first then we seem to think we justify the killings because the four legged are pests. How is this that we can always justify our wrongs instead of taking responsibility for our insane and irresponsible actions.
