Elders Meditation Of The Day

“To be able to greet the sun with the sounds from all of Nature is a
great blessing, and it helps us to remember Who is the real provider of
all of our benefits.”|

–Thomas Yellowtail, CROW

The Elders say we should pray to the East every morning. Just try
it! Get up early in the morning, watch the sun and listen to the morning
sounds, the birds, the winds; smell the air, feel the breeze and the warmth of
the sun. Your mid will expand and you will experience oneness with the Great
Spirit. You’ll realize who is really in charge. You’ll realize an
interconnectedness. You’ll realize how much the Creator loves you! Just try it!

Great Spirit,
today,let me feel
the Earth,
the Father Sun
and your presence.

The Daily Feast

Homecoming is not just a certain hour but a feeling, an attitude, an an na li –
a friend. One phase of the day has been completed, so now back to the reasons for it – home.

Home with its familiar fragrances, its lighted warmth and peace of mind. At least, home ought to be this way – though it isn’t always. Too little time, too much weariness, too many complaints. Too little, too late, too bad. Real homecoming is a state of mind. Someone needs to be comforted, someone needs a gentle touch, someone needs to think of others. It may not be perfect, but working together makes homecoming a celebration.

these things. The Seminole is fighting for his hunting grounds. ~

Think Of These Things

Have you heard how dreadful the neighbors are these days to ignore another’s plight, and how the world has gone to the dogs because people don’t care? Have
you heard how hardened hearts are and how callous and unfeeling the human race
has become?

It may be true such things do happen….for we hear about it daily. But it
likely is that we hear more about the unusual then the usual.

For have you heard about the builder who laid his own plans aside to help
another build his house….and the lady who gave her home and nursing care to
someone who had no other place to go. Or the child who found its needs fulfilled
in the love of a foster mother.

We may ignore, but we can never erase the love of the human race for the human
race. The world may abound with sordid happenings; it may revel in senseless
activities. But called to help, the greater number will respond without thought
of the cost to themselves.

Of these things we hear so little. With these we come in contact every day and
accept it as the normal pattern of life….which it is….for each unthinking,
infantile mine there are two great thoughtful ones. And the second great
Commandment still works its wonders in all our lives.

Today’s Positive Thought

No one else can give you the healing that all humans require and need at this point of the universe. As individuals we must heal and together as one world and people we must heal. The universal conscious does not gently ask that humans aspire to one world the cosmic spiritual forces demand it as such from humans of all walks of life. ~ Aris~

What you think affects the whole world. Think responsibly!

Today’s Positive Thought

As you focus on what is good about people, you
enable them to achieve it.

Today’s Positive Affirmation

I easily recognize the goodness in all who I
encounter.

Today’s Positive Visualization

In my mind’s eye I imagine greeting others and
immediately seeing their goodness. I take a moment
to enjoy the beauty of their goodness. As I do this
in my mind’s eye, I affirm the goodness that is also
within me. I imagine myself going through my day with
the goodness in others surrounding me with light and
love. I combine these images with joy and let them go,
knowing that they will create the good things I am
visualizing and thinking.

Daily Reflection-Spiritwalk

No one else can dream or hope for you. No one else can think for you or decide for you. You and you alone have the power to change your life and shape it to what you wish it to be. Get the life you love and live it. 😀 Never give up projecting the images of life you want, the results will be fulfilling and satiable.

Elders Meditation Of The Day

Elders Meditation of the Day

“But the great spirit has provided you and me with an opportunity
for study in nature’s university, the forests, the rivers, the mountains, and the animals which include us.”

~Walking Buffalo, STONEY~

What we really need to learn is how to live life. Nature is the
greatest university when we want to learn about balance, harmony, the Natural
Laws and how to live life. But we will never learn unless we spend time in
the “living university.” Nature is full of examples, lessons, and exercises
about life. Nature will help humans learn. Nature will help humans heal. Nature
will help with Medicine, knowledge and healing. The reason our Elders are so
wise is because they have attended the right educational system – nature’s
university.

Great Spirit,
help me
to
become
wise.

The Daily Feast- Forgotten Lessons

Daily Feast

We can’t always gear our lives to the desires of others. And that
doesn’t mean we should be difficult or hard to get along with. It does mean
there is a time to make it easy on ourselves. Take a few easy steps. When life
crowds in, it is time to quit giving the impression of being superhuman. Going
the extra mile has always been important, but we have days when someone else
needs to go that extra mile and give us relief. It is somewhat like breathing –
there’s a time to inhale and a time to exhale.

You hear of us as murderers and thieves. We are not so. If we had more lands to
give you, we would give them, but we have no more.

RED CLOUD – SIOUX CHIEFTAN

When we stop to think, we realize that at one time our main teaching was to be
honorable and just and compassionate. And now, most of our entertainment is
watching someone brings down someone with a degree of innocence. We are free to
hiss and boo what we see and hear, but how many admire such a gift of treachery?
What would it be like to manipulate and generally ruin other people’s lives for
pure entertainment? Who can we really trust or rely on? We can begin with
ourselves. By weeding out past experiences and by forgiving ourselves, we can be
someone that can be trusted. It is a beginning – and a responsibility.


My children, you have forgotten the customs and traditions of your forefathers.
