We don't need the firewater.

"My children, you have forgotten the customs and traditions of your forefathers. ...You have bought guns, knives, kettles, and blankets from the white man until you can no longer do without them; and what is worse you have drunk the poison firewater, which turns you into fools. Fling all these things away; live as your forefathers did before you."

--Pontiac, ODOWA

We need to think as our forefathers did. They knew the culture and the customs. The culture taught them how to live in harmony with each other. We need to think like this again. We must be God-reliant. We don't need the firewater. This liquid is very destructive to our native people. It kills our spirit. Our Indian people are happiest when we are spiritual. When we depend on anyone or anything else, we get off track. We need to talk to the Elders and find out what the old ways were. We need to ask them to teach us the culture, the tradition, and the customs. This will help us become whole again.

What should I pray for?

"That spiritual power I wear is much more beautiful and much greater. We call it wisdom, knowledge, power and gift, or love. There are these four parts to that spiritual power. So I wear those. When you wear that power it will beautify your mind and spirit. You become beautiful. Everything that Tunkashila creates is beautiful."

--Wallace Black Elk, LAKOTA

When I was young, I asked my grandfather, "What should I pray for?" He thought for a long time and then he said, "Pray only for wisdom and for the knowledge of love." This makes a lot of sense. No matter what happens I ask the Creator to show me the lessons I should be learning. I pray for Him to help me learn the lessons. By doing this everyday we become beautiful human beings.

Who really gives us our life?


"We have a biological father and mother, but our real Father is Tunkashila [Creator] and our real Mother is the Earth."

--Wallace Black Elk, LAKOTA

Who really gives us our life? Who really gives us our food and nurturing? Who really allows us to be born? We are born through our parents who act as the vehicle of life for the Creator and Mother Earth. Our parents take care of us for a little while and when we are ready we must leave them and be faithful to our true Father, the Creator, and our true Mother, the Earth. Then we need to be of service to the Creator and be respectful to Mother Earth.

Great Spirit, thank you for being my Father. Teach me to honor the Earth.

Nature is life's greatest teacher

 
"Lots of people hardly ever feel real soil under their feet, see plants grow except in flower pots, or get far enough beyond the street light to catch the enchantment of a night sky studded with stars. When people live far from scenes of the Great Spirit's making, it's easy for them to forget His laws."

 --Tatanga Mani (Walking Buffalo), STONEY

Nature is life's greatest teacher. The natural laws are hidden in nature. Hidden are solutions to everyday problems such as; conflict resolution, how to forgive, lessons about differences, how to manage organizations, how to think. Hidden are feelings. You can look at something and you will feel it. At night, have you ever looked at the sky when there are no clouds? As you look at all the stars, your heart will become very joyful. You will walk away feeling joyful and peaceful. We need to visit nature so we can see and feel these things.

Tanssia sateessa


Haluan mennä ulos tanssimaan. Alasti sateessa.
Kuin lapset monsuunin alle jääneessä intiaanikylässä.
Keskellä viidakkoa. Lapset, joille on vain kylä.
Viidakon maailmankaikkeus.
Tanssia sateessa...
Intiaanilasten jaloissa sivilisaatio liukenee mutavelliksi:
Filosofian vuodet, sanaleikit, uskontojen epätoivoiset messiaat,
johtajien, kapinallisten mielettömät rivit,
kansanmassojen sieluton hämminki.
Minä en halua tietää siitä. Kaikki, mitä elämältä on koskaan vaadittu:
Onni, Rakkaus, Kadotetut paratiisit,
on noiden tanssivien intiaanilasten tiedottomissa jaloissa.
Kukaan ei kerro, kuinka olla onnellinen.
Ei ole lähetyssaarnaajaa tarjoamassa pelastusta.
Jaloissamme sade ja roiskuva muta, viidakon vihreys.

Yksinäisen hiljentymisen henkinen tie


Yksinäisen hiljentymisen henkinen tie,
jota on tapana nimittää näyn rukoilemiseksi,
toteutuu silloin kun yksilö vetäytyy täydelliseen,
useita päiviä kestävään paastoon autiolle seudulle,
yksin ja alastomana, rukoillen lakkaamatta...
Tämä yliluonnollisen valaistumisen tavoittelu
on aina ollut tyypillistä preeriaintiaanien,
niin miesten kuin naistenkin, henkiselle elämälle,
eikä sitä voida arvostaa kyllin korkealle.
(Hengellinen perintö)

Se aika vuodesta

Toinen paastopäivä alkoikin odotettua vauhdikkaammin saatuani soiton kirpputorilta. Tarkoitukseni oli lukea hyvää kirjallisuutta mutta se saa nyt hetkeksi väistyä vaatehuoneen siivousurakan alta. Toisaalta nämä projektit sopivat hyvin yhteen ja ensi viikolla saan nauttia siivotun kehon lisäksi siivotusta kodista, jossa ei turhalla tavaralla ole enää sijaa. <3
