Elder’s Meditation of the Day
“The sacred ceremonies given to us by the Creator are the Heart of our existence. These ceremonies are our first duty.”
–Traditional Circle of Elders. NORTHERN CHEYENNE
Hidden in the ceremonies are many truths, many principles, many guidelines for living— our access to the Unseen World, healing and visions. Because the Indian People didn’t have schools or books, the Great Spirit gave us Ceremonies. The ceremonies are handed down from generation to generation to learn their meaning. Today, many Indian People live in cities or urban areas where it’s hard to learn the ceremonies. We need to go to the Elders and learn the ceremonies so we can pass them on to our children.
Great Spirit, teach me the Secrets of the Ceremonies.
SOMETHING EXTRA TO THINK ABOUT
Msit Nókmaq/All My Relations,
When a ceremony is opened and prayers have been offered for direction, How can one say it was done wrong? If that person wrote the book of rules on ceremony then maybe it could be true. But when Creator and the directions have been asked then who are we to tell another they are wrong or criticize them for their efforts. Prayer and Spirituality does not belong to any human, It all belongs to Creator.
