Elders Meditation Of The Day- Creator’s Simple Laws Bring Happiness

The Creator designed a very simple set of Laws for us to follow. If we follow these simple things, we’ll be happy. If we don’t follow these simple things, our lives become complicated.

For example:

Respect Mother Earth

Love one another

Be truthful

Give to your brother and sisters

Be gentle with each other

Be happy

Following these simple Laws will have great rewards.

Great Spirit, let me lead a simple life.

Elders Meditation Of The Day-Harmony In All Things

“It’s very hard to do things in the right manner, but as long as we do things
right, we are in turn with the Great Spirit.”

–Rolling Thunder, CHEROKEE

When we are right with the Great Spirit, we are right with all things. It is
impossible to be out of harmony with anything or anybody when we are in harmony
with the Great One. So, if during the day a problem crops up and someone makes
us mad, the best thing we can do is talk to the Creator first, ask for His help,
then continue our conversation with the other person. In this way, our emotional
nature will keep aligned with our thoughts, and we will always stay right with
the Great Spirit.

Great Spirit, I
ask You to
guide me on
the Red Road
today.

Elders Meditation Of The Day- New Years Meditation

“They must give themselves to Wakan’ Tanka and live a spiritual life. They will have the peace that frees them from fear.”

— Frank Fools Crow, LAKOTA

There are two wills available for us: self will and God’s will. Our choice is: figure it out ourselves, or have the Creator involved in our lives. If we are honest with ourselves and look at past experiences, what are our lives like when we try to figure it out ourselves? Is there fear, confusion, frustration, anger, attacking others, conflict, fault finding, manipulation, teasing others, belittling others or devaluation? If these things are present, they indicate that we are choosing self will. What is it like if we turn our will over to the Creator? What are the results if we ask the Great Spirit to guide our life? Examples are: freedom, choices, consequences, love, forgiveness, helping others, happiness, joy, solutions, and peace. Which will I choose today, self will or God’s will?


Creator, I know what my choice is. I want You to direct my life. I want You to direct my thinking. You are the Grandfather. You know what I need even before I do. Today I ask You to tell me what I can do for You today. Tell me in a way I can understand and I will be happy to do it

Elders Meditation Of The Day- Stay Connected To Mother Earth

“We grieve more because we have been disconnected from our earth, our first
Mother, our spiritual Mother.”

~Larry P. Aitken, CHIPPEWA~

Where does all life come from? The Earth. Where does everything return to? The
Earth. Where do values come them? The Earth. Many people are lost because they
don’t know the importance of connection to the Earth. They connect to money, to
relationships, to success, to goals. When we are disconnected from the Earth, we
have feelings of being sad or lost. When we are connected to the Earth, we feel
warm and secure.

Great Spirit,
help me to stay
connected to
the Mother
Earth.
