Elder’s Meditation of the Day
“[The Old People] would gather words as they walked a sacred path across the Earth, leaving nothing behind but prayers and offerings.”
—- Cleone Thunder, NORTHERN ARAPAHOE
Whenever we walk on the Earth, we should pay attention to what is going on. Too often our minds are somewhere else, thinking about the past or thinking about the future. When we do this, we are missing important lessons. The Earth is a constant flow of lessons and learning’s which also include a constant flow of positive feelings. If we are aware as we walk, we will gather words for our lives, the lessons to help our children; we will gather feelings of interconnectedness and calmness. When we experience
this, we should say or think thoughts of gratitude. When we do this, the next person to walk on the sacred path will benefit even more.
My Creator, today, let me be aware of the sacred path.
SOMETHING EXTRA TO THINK ABOUT
Msit Nókmaq/All My Relations,
Our relationship to surroundings is important. We must keep our minds in awareness of our environment at all times. When we slack from doing it we end up in a failed position. But if we concentrate too much on it we still end up failed. We need to seek a balance so we can have peace of mind and continually give thanks to Creator for all the gifts he gives us daily.
