Elder’s Meditation of the Day March 31

“The old Lakota Elder was wise. He knew that man’s heart away from nature becomes hard; he knew the lack of respect for growing, living things soon led to a lack of respect for humans too. So he kept his youth close to its softening influence.”
–Luther Standing Bear, OGLALA SIOUX

When we live in nature it’s like constantly being in school. We are in an environment that is always teaching. We are constantly being reminded hat there are laws, Natural Laws, which are running the
universe. Once we know these laws and we drift from them, we start to live our lives in a different way. Soon we become discontent, selfish and disrespectful. Then, we get in trouble. If our lives have become this way, it can be reversed by going back to nature to be among our teachers.

Great Spirit, teach men, again, the Natural Laws.



Msit Nókmaq/All My Relations,
When we wake in the mornings and go through the day, what do we have at its end? Have we learned anything? Did we disrespect anyone? Did we live this day to do good instead of bad? What was our accomplishments for the day? What were our losses? Did we show love and compassion to everyone we came into contact with? These things are necessary to understand if we are to grow in a more Spiritual way. Have I applied any of this to my life today?
