Honor the sacred. Honor the Earth, our Mother.

 Honor the Elders.

 Honor all with whom we share the Earth:


- Four-leggeds, two-leggeds,

 winged ones, Swimmers, crawlers, plant and rock people. 

Walk in balance and beauty.

 i was going around the world with the clouds, 

when God spoke to my thought and told me to...

 be at Peace with all.

Omg, this is too adorable.  ...I also did that when I was a kid, and still sometimes do. O.o

Native American Quote




Jedi Parking 


I will think about what kind of person I want to be when I am an Elder. I will start developing myself now to be this person.
I will walk with the Great Spirit and the grandfathers at my side. I will develop myself to remain positive. I will develop a good mind.
I will examine myself daily to see what I did good and what I need to improve. I will examine my strengths and weaknesses; then I will ask the Creator to guide me. I will develop a good mind.
Each day, I will listen for the Creator's voice in the wind. I will watch nature and ask to be shown a lesson which will occur on my path.
I will seek our the guiding principles which guided my ancestors. I will walk in dignity, honor and humility, conducting myself as a warrior.
I will seek the guidance of the Elders so that I may maintain the knowledge of culture, ceremonies and songs, and so that I may pass these on to future generations.
I choose to do all these things myself, because no one else can do them for me.
I know I CANNOT GIVE AWAY WHAT I DON'T HAVE, so I will need to learn to walk the talk. 


"The first peace, which is the most important, is that which comes within the souls of people when they realize their relationship, their oneness, with the universe and all its powers, and when they realize that at the center of the universe dwells the Great Spirit, and that this center is really everywhere, it is within each of us." ~ Black Elk - Oglala Sioux ~
