Elder’s Meditation of the Day
“We must have respect and understanding for women and all female life on this Earth which bears the sacred gift of life.”
–Traditional Circle of Elders. ONONDAGA
At a gathering of Native Elders we were told that many men of today had lost their ability to look at the Woman in a sacred way. They said we were only looking at Her in a physical sense and had lost the ability to look at Her sacredness. They said the Woman has a powerful position in the Unseen World. She has the special ability to bring forth life. They told us to start showing Her respect and to look upon her in a sacred manner. We must start this today.
Grandfather, show me how to see in a sacred way.
SOMETHING EXTRA TO THINK ABOUT
Msit Nókmaq/All My Relations,
Women can do what a man cannot do, a woman can give birth where a man is incapable of such. Most women have the patience to tend their children where men do not. Mothers raise the children more than the fathers do because they have more time with the children. We have lost many families to alcohol and drugs and the love and teachings are becoming lost forever. We must strive to change that and get back on the path. ” It all starts with admitting you really have a problem”, then there are steps to take in order to achieve serenity and sobriety. When this happens then we learn to love and respect our women, our children and our men and even our self, But until then we will continue to keep suffering.
