ELDERS DAILY MEDITATIONS
“Each of us must know in our minds and believe in our hearts that even though we are different, you are like me and I am like you.”
–Larry P. Aitken, CHIPPEWA
One of the definitions of humility is having an awareness of one’s own character defects. To recognize and acknowledge that one has imperfections is being humble. We should never pray for ourselves unless by doing so it would help another person. To have self-importance puts self first and this is not humble. We each have strengths and we each have weaknesses. Both the strengths and weaknesses are sacred. Life is sacred. We learn sacred things from weaknesses also. Therefore, all lives are developed through trial and error, strength and weakness, ups and downs, gains and losses- all of these are part of life and life is sacred.
Great Mystery, let me see and know about the sacredness of life.
SOMETHING EXTRA TO THINK ABOUT
Msit Nókmaq/All My Relations,
When we all wake we usually look into a mirror at some point in the day. Who do we see? Do we know that person? It is important that we recognize the person in the mirror. What needs changed about that person in the mirror? When we point at someone else we are really pointing at our ourselves because our faults are glaring and we are too blind to see it.
