Words of Wisdom
We have a friend who keeps First Peoples' wisdom coming to us via e-mail. He must get them of a website himself. Anyway, these nuggets of gold in the form of 'Elder's mediations' often suffice for part of the day anyway, to keep me remembering what I already know but regularly forget- and rarely act on.
Elder's Meditation of the Day
"No individual or group can block
another individual's path or change it
against what fits his nature and his
purpose. It might be done for a time, but
in the end it won't work out."
Rolling Thunder, CHEROKEE
Every person is born for a purpose. We may know our purpose very early in our lives, or it
may take us some time. Very often we need to experience many things before our purpose is
clear to us. Sometimes we pick our goals to please others. Sometimes others pick our goals
to make themselves happy. Often this makes us unhappy. We need to pray to the Creator
and ask Him what our purpose is. When we live outside our purpose, our path is full of
obstacles. When we live inside our purpose, our path is smooth. When we are aligned to
our purpose, we are happy and content.
Great Spirit, whisper to me,in terms I can understand, what You would have me do and I will do it.
