ELDERS DAILY MEDITATIONS
“The beginning is purification, that’s the first step..And purification means purification of body and mind. You don’t purify the body without cleansing the mind; that’s the way it works.”
–Rolling Thunder, CHEROKEE
If we have bad thoughts or poison in our minds, they will eventually show up in our bodies in the form of headaches, pains, and stomach problems. It works this way because we are interconnected. Our minds and our bodies are one system. So when we start to grow, or commit to the Red Road, we need to start cleaning up our thoughts and start showing respect for our bodies. We start purifying our minds by prayer and meditation, and we start cleansing our bodies by getting the right amount of sleep and developing good eating habits. Today, I’m going to observe my thoughts. Will my thoughts be clean today?
Great Spirit, let me focus on Your love today so my mind will be pure.
SOMETHING EXTRA TO THINK ABOUT
Msit Nókmaq/All My Relations,
If you pour chemicals into a pond it eventually poisons the water. Humans are similar. Be careful what you say, think and do and be careful of what you eat. We need to keep our gardens weeded without bug sprays/ pesticides.
