ELDERS DAILY MEDITATIONS
“In our modern world today, we may seem like drowning men because of the loss of much of our spiritual tradition.”
–Thomas Yellowtail, CROW
Our spiritual tradition shows us the way to live in harmony, balance and respect. The tradition taught us how to behave and how to conduct ourselves. The spiritual way taught us to pray and to purify ourselves. Handed down from generation to generation were the teachings about a way of life. Our relationship to Mother Earth and to each other was very clear. The Modern World does not relate to spirituality but to materialism. If we do not allow spirituality to guide our lives, we will be lost, unhappy and without direction. We are spiritual beings trying to be human, not human beings trying to be spiritual. It is said, Know thyself.
Grandfather, lead me to spirituality.
SOMETHING EXTRA TO THINK ABOUT
Msit Nókmaq/All My Relations,
If we do not give ourselves to Creator daily we keep from growing spiritually. Offering tobacco ties and doing a smudge of tobacco, sweet grass,cedar or sage aides in this way of Sacred passage so we can learn and then give it to the next generation.”We pass it on”. It also helps us with our prayers and our daily living.
