ELDERS DAILY MEDITATIONS
“Balance is implicit in the Red Road. When you’re on the Red Road, you are in the center. Yet, you do not go to either extreme, and you allow both sides to exist. This is accomplished by continually postponing surrendering to temptation, whatever it may be. It is saying `later’ instead of `no.'”
–Dr. A.C. Ross (Ehanamani), LAKOTA
The Sacred Path of life has a middle, a left side, and a right side. As human beings, we are designed to walk this middle path as much as we can. As we walk, we will stray to the left and to the right and come back to the middle. Straying to the left or right side is as sacred as being in the middle. Sometimes we call this straying our mistakes. We are designed by the Creator to walk to Sacred Path of life, and realize that our mistakes are the source of lessons. These lessons give us our wisdom. It is not wrong that we are tempted. What matters is what we do with the temptation.
Great Spirit, today, let me enjoy the Sacred Path of Life.
SOMETHING EXTRA TO THINK ABOUT
Msit Nókmaq/All My Relations,
Remember how we used to stand on a teeter totter in the center and try to not lose balance? Many of us were always trying to do things that required balance, like trying to stand on a 55 gallon drum and roll it like a log, Walking a balance bar at the gym. One thing we forgot was to try and balance our lives! “This is very important to do daily”.
