Elder’s Meditation of the Day
“Conciliation is the key to survival. Peace is the goal.”
–Haida Gwaii, Traditional Circle of Elders
When we make decisions or experience conflict we need to look at the greater whole. The end result we want to accomplish is peace of mind. If we keep this goal in mind, we will, overall, live a happy and fulfilling life. Everything in the world is constantly changing so we should not resist this change. A good question to ask ourselves is, “would I rather be right or happy?” If we would rather be happy, then it is easier to let the little things go. If we would rather be right, we tend to look for the WIN/LOSE.
Great Spirit, today, give me the tools to seek peace of mind.
SOMETHING EXTRA TO THINK ABOUT
Msit Nókmaq/All My Relations,
Conflict is a daily part of life,It is how we deal with it that really counts. We can accept things or we can resist but in the end it is our own peace of mind that has been toiled with. We need to re-process our thinking to accept that things are exactly the way they are and we have no control over people, places or things.
