Elder’s Meditation of the Day
“Without a sacred center, no one knows right from wrong.”
—- Thomas Yellowtail, CROW
In the center of the circle is where the powers reside. These powers are called love, principle, justice, spiritual knowledge, life, forgiveness and truth. All these powers reside in the very center of the human being. We access these powers by being still, quieting the mind. If we get confused, emotionally upset, feel resentment, anger, or fear, the best thing we can do is pray to the Great Spirit and ask Him to remove the anger and resentment. By asking Him to remove these obstacles, we are automatically positioned in the sacred center. Only in this way do we know right from wrong.
Great Spirit, allow me this day to live in the sacred center.
SOMETHING EXTRA TO THINK ABOUT
Msit Nókmaq/All My Relations,
We need to realize that Creator does not give us anymore to handle than what he knows we can handle. We all are an important part of the Sacred hoop and should not let things get us upset to the point where we go back to using and abusing. Stop! Pray! Call a friend and talk before you go out and mess up. Do not be disrespectful and do the calling after you already started drugging or drinking. In AA it is this way;” God grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change,The courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.”
Arthur Medicine Eagle-Sonier, MEGAMAW
Gitsch Manito-Creator,Wásóq-Spiritworld, Please allow me Peace within to accept the things I cannot change and the courage to change the things that I can.
