Beauty and ugliness are everywhere - even in some of the same things. To some a wide open prairie is empty and colorless - but to others it is uncluttered simplicity - the way life itself ought to look. Physical appeal is high on some lists, but nu tso se dv na, which is cherokee comfort, lasts longer. Whatever is in our hearts is in our sight. To love something or someone makes us see the beauty of it - not the wrong. It is to our advantage to be gentle in our observations - to see and cultivate the best in who we are and in those around us. We love quiet; we suffer the mouse to play; when the woods are rustled by the wind, we fear not....... Indian Chief 1796
" You might as well expect the rivers to run backward
as that any man who was born free
should be contented penned up and denied liberty...
Let me be a free man- free to travel, free to stop,
free to work, free to trade, where I choose...
Free to think and act and talk for myself."
Chief Joseph, Nez Perce
Each People or Nation, was given Original Instructions for the
Path theyre supposed to follow in this life. "Unless they find
that Path and follow it, their lifell be empty, meaningless,"
Mathew King, Chief Noble Red Man, Lakota (Sioux)
You have noticed that everything an Indian does is in a circle,
and that is because the Power of the World always works in circles, and everything tries to be round..... The Sky is round, and I
have heard that the earth is round like a ball, and so are all the stars. The wind, in its greatest power, whirls. Birds make their nest in circles, for theirs is the same religion as ours..
Even the seasons form a great circle in their changing, and always come back again to where they were. The life of a man is a circle
from childhood to childhood, and so it is in everything where power moves.
Black Elk - Oglala Sioux Holy Man 1863-1950
I have been to the end of the earth.
I have been to the end of the waters.
I have been to the end of the sky.
I have been to the end of the mountains.
I have found none that are not my friends.
