Elder's Meditation of the Day - February 22
Elder's Meditation of the Day - February 22

"In the Indian way, we are connected to that flower if we understand its spirit, the essence of its life."
--Larry P. Aitken, CHIPPEWA



Everything on our Earth is alive. Every rock, every plant, every animal, every tree, every bird, every thought is alive. This is true because everything is made by the Great Spirit and the Great Spirit is alive. We need to slow our lives down each day and realize, consciously, that this is true. First we need to realize it, second, we need to acknowledge it, third, we need to appreciate it and, finally, we need to go on.

Great Spirit, let me see life through Your eyes. Today let me be alive.

Thank you for posting this. The slowing down part is the most important. There is so much beauty and mystery to be savored when one does.

4. I'm glad you enjoyed it, ayeshahaqqiqa...
Our journey through life takes many paths, we need to remember to explore the unbeaten paths, or sometimes to even make our own path. Too many people today are rushing through life, just trying to get through it.


Peace to you and yours,

Ghost
