Elder’s Meditation of the Day
“But the great spirit has provided you and me with an opportunity for study in nature’s university, the forests, the rivers, the mountains, and the animals which include us.”
—- Walking Buffalo, STONEY
What we really need to learn is how to live life. Nature is the greatest university when we want to learn about balance, harmony, the Natural Laws and how to live life. But we will never learn unless we spend time in the “living university.” Nature is full of examples, lessons, and exercises about life. Nature will help humans learn. Nature will help humans heal. Nature will help with Medicine, knowledge and healing. The reason our Elders are so wise is because they have attended the right educational system – nature’s university.
Great Spirit, help me to become wise.
SOMETHING EXTRA TO THINK ABOUT
Msit Nókmaq/All My Relations,
When we pay attention to all the things around us we can then see that our relationship to them is greater than imagined. We need to watch the animals to learn, we need to smell the wind to seek out weather, We need to watch all creatures so we can become closer to our relations instead of being so distant.
