Elder’s Meditation of the Day March 23

“We must relearn how to cry. A strong man cries; it is the weak man who holds back his tears.” –Archie Fire Lame Deer, LAKOTA

Indian men and other men should really meditate on this Elder’s saying. So many men have been taught it is unmanly to cry, to show emotions or to feel. When people cry, the Elders say there are two types of tears – one type will taste salty; the other type will taste sweet. One is caused by pain, and the other is caused by the release from the pain, or joy tears. A strong man knows himself and knows his relationship with the Great Spirit. The release of tears is a spiritual act. Our bodies are designed to cry. We should honor our bodies and use them as the Creator intended.

Great Spirit, Grandfather, today, teach me to cry.

SOMETHING EXTRA TO THINK ABOUT

Msit Nókmaq/All My Relations, “Stop your crying or I will spank you some more”. How nice of words to hear to a child. The conditioning is a part of our life and in some areas we are always in need of change. I have been told that real men do cry and it does not have anything to do with homosexuality, female tendencies or being weak. It is a must if we are going to grow and become stronger in our walk. Grandpa used to say  “Real men cry”.    Arthur Medicine Eagle-Sonier,  MEGAMAW
