A Great Daily Message
I subscribe to this daily inspirational e-mail from www.whitebison.org. They come from various Native American elders. I find most them just good reminders for how we should all live in harmony with the world; nature and the people, as well as praying to whomever you believe The Creator is. They all stress that we have choices and need guidance to follow the right path. All of them end with a prayer to The Creator which relates to the message for the day. I like that they are so universal.
Elder's Meditation of the Day - September 18
"I walk in and out of many worlds."
--Joy Harjo, CREEK/CHEROKEE
In my mind are many dwellings. Each of the dwellings we create ourselves - the house of anger, the house of despair, the house of self pity, the house of indifference, the house of negative, the house of positive, the house of hope, the house of joy, the house of peace, the house of enthusiasm, the house of cooperation, the house of giving. Each of these houses we visit each day. We can stay in any house for as long as we want. We can leave these mental houses any time we wish. We create the dwelling, we stay in the dwelling, we leave the dwelling whenever we wish. We can create new rooms, new houses. Whenever we enter these dwellings, this becomes our world until we leave for another. What world will we live in today?
Creator, no one can determine which dwelling I choose to enter. No one has the power to do so, only me. Let me choose wisely today.
