ELDERS DAILY MEDITATIONS
“My father told me that Hopi earth does contain my roots and I am, indeed, from that land. Because my roots are there, I will find them.” –Wendy Rose, HOPI/MIWOK
Everything that comes from the earth will return to the earth. We should be able to realize the connectedness to the earth. We should be able to feel toward Her just like She is our real Mother. We can easily feel this connectedness if we can answer these three questions: why am I?, who am I?, and where am I going? If we cannot answer these questions, then perhaps we need to talk to the Elders. go to the Elders and ask, “Grandfather, why am I?; Grandmother, who am I?; Oh Great One, where am I supposed to go?” The Elders will help us with these three questions.
Grandfather, help me to stay centered today.
SOMETHING EXTRA TO THINK ABOUT
Msit Nókmaq/All My Relations,
Many times in our lives we rely upon Elders to help us with questions we have. Seeking out truth and knowledge is a part of our ways. We often talk to our own selves and this is normal because we are speaking to Creator and the Ancestors before us. Sometimes we recieve answers right away, sometimes Creator says wait, and sometimes Creator says no it is not going to happen. So how we accept these answers is how we walk in daily life. We can walk with a grudge or we can walk with Love to help others and get out of self.
