Elder’s Meditation of the Day
“If the Great Spirit wanted men to stay in one place He would make the world stand still; but He made it to always change…”
–Chief Flying Hawk, OGLALA SIOUX
The Elders tell us change occurs in two directions. They say, “That which is built is constantly being destroyed; that which is loose is being used to build the New.” In other words, change is constantly going on. Many times we hear people say, “I hate change.” Does it make sense that the Great Spirit would design people to hate it? The Great Spirit designed people with change abilities such as visioning, imagery and imagination. Maybe we need to learn to use these tools and then we’ll look forward to change.
Great Spirit, today, let me see the harmony of Yours, truly changing world.
SOMETHING EXTRA TO THINK ABOUT
Msit Nókmaq/All My Relations,
In the Armed Forces they tell you to dig a hole and then when you are done they decide it was the wrong spot so they have you cover the one up and dig a new one. This makes for character adjustment and tolerance but at the time it is happening we only look at it as someone making us mad. When we learn to meld into the walk of life we can see things we did not see before. We learn to adapt but not and try to understand more efficiently. How does a butterfly start out as what we consider ugly then come forth as a beautiful flying creature? This mystery is what we humans should be learning in our lives. We all can be those Butterflies.
