ELDERS SPEAK...

 

"Heal yourself - your physical and spiritual bodies. Regenerate yourself with light, and then help those who have poverty of the soul. Return to the inner spirit, which we have abandoned while looking elsewhere for happiness."  -- Willaru Huayta, Quechua Nation, Peru
 

It is difficult to look inside ourselves, especially when we see conflict or confusion. During times of conflict we need to realize that we are talking to ourselves about our thoughts. This conversation is printing in our subconscious and forming our beliefs. During times of conflict we need to ask the spirit to control our self-talk. Only thorough finding that inner place and going there during troubled times will we ever find happiness.

Great Spirit, You are my peace and you dwell within me. Let me look for You within myself.

All around you from morning till night is distraction -- the daily clatters of life draw your attention away from the quiet search for spirit within.  Build an altar outside in nearby nature.  Go there each morning and evening and give thanks.  The spirit within will find you.  It is the first and last step to healing our physical and spiritual bodies. ~Lee Standing Bear Moore
