Elder's Meditation of the Day
Today, I am posting a message I received from my morning e-mails from White Bison Elders. I am not of Native Heritage, but I have always been interested in their approach and way of looking at the world. Harmony, Balance and The Circle of Life are constant themes in their philosophy.
"Life, the circle, a measurement with no beginning and no end."
--Phillip Deere, MUSKOGEE-CREEK
The circle teaches us how the Creator made things and how to live. It teaches us how we should look at creation. Life travels in a circle. In the East is the baby, to the South is the youth, in the West is the adult and in the North is the Elder. Then we return to the Earth Mother to start the cycle again. We observe what is `around us' from the center of the circle. This develops our point of view. We must be careful not to become self-centered.
Great Spirit, let me observe life from the circle's point of view.
I have written about many times that events in my life have come full circle. When this happens, it is always so clear to me that it's as if it was actually perfectly orchestrated by forces beyond our earthly existence.
I'm sure all of you have experienced the full circle of completion several times in your life. Do any come to mind right now?
