" I cannot think that we are useless
or God would not have created us.
There is one God
looking down on us all.
We are all the children of one God."
" The earth and myself
are of one mind."
" The earth has received the embrace of the sun
and we shall see the results of that love."
-Sitting Bull, Hunkpapa Sioux Medicine Man and Chief-
" Treat the earth well:
It was not given to you by your parents,
it was loaned to you by your children.
We do not inherit the earth from our anchestors,
we borrow it from our children."
-Ancient Indian Proverb-
" The strenght of our future
lies in the protecting our past."
" It makes no difference
as to the name of the God,
since Love is the real God
of all the world."
Oh, Great Spirit
Help me always to speak
the truth quietly,
to listen with an open mind
when others speak,
and to remember,
the peace that may be found in silence."
A Native American Prayer
Oh Great Spirit, whose voice I hear
in the winds, and whose breath gives life to all the world -hear me- I come before you, one of your children. I am small and
weak. I need your strength and wisdom. Let me walk in beauty and make my eyes ever behold the red and purple sunset. Make
my hands respect the things you have made, my ears sharp to hear your voice. Make me wise, so that I may know the things you
have taught my People. The lessons you have hidden in every leaf and rock. I seek strength not to be superior to my brothers,
but to be able to fight my greatest enemy, myself. Make me ever ready to come to you, with clean hands and straight eyes,
so when life fades as a fading sunset, my spirit may come to you without shame.
As I walk, as I walk
The universe is walking with me
In beauty it walks before me
In beauty it walks behind me
In beauty it walks below me
In beauty it walks above me
Beauty is on every side
As I walk, I walk with Beauty.
Traditional Navajo Prayer
Learn how to withhold judgment
Learn to listen
Get in touch with your own inner self
Look at life
Don't ever cry over something that cannot cry over you.
