the moon + native american wisdom

When a man moves away from nature, his heart becomes hard.

– Lakota –

P1020681 

Friend, do it this way – that is, whatever you do in life, do the very best you can with both your heart and mind. And if you do it that way, the Power Of the Universe will come to your assistance, if your heart and mind are in Unity. When one sits in the Hoop of the People, one must be responsible because All of Creation is related. And the hurt of one is the hurt of all. And the honor of one is the honor of all. And whatever we do affects everything in the universe. If you do it that way – that is, if you truly join your heart and mind as One – whatever you ask for, that’s the Way It’s Going To Be.

–  Passed down from White Buffalo Calf Woman –

P1020696

To touch the earth is to have harmony with nature.

–  Oglala Sioux  –

P1020692

It is no longer good enough to cry peace, we must act peace, live peace and live in peace.

P1020689

The 10 Indian Commandments

Treat the Earth and all that dwell therein with respect

Remain close to the Great Spirit

Show great respect for your fellow beings

Work together for the benefit of all Mankind

Give assistance and kindness wherever needed

Do what you know to be right

Look after the well-being of Mind and Body

Dedicate a share of your efforts to the greater Good

Be truthful and honest at all times

Take full responsibility for your actions

    1. It is a shame, but I think and hope that there are people out there that are starting to look at the world in a new (or old – depending on how you look at it) way. Hopefully, it will help to bring about more holistic approach to the human relationship with the planet. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and have a super day!
