Elder’s Meditation of the Day – April 30


“Modern civilization has no understanding of sacred matters. Everything is backwards.”

Thomas Yellowtail, CROW

Modern civilization says, don’t pray in school; don’t pray at work; only go to church on Sunday. If you don’t believe what I believe, you’ll go to hell. Deviancy is normal. Our role models cheat, drink and run around; these are the people in the news. The news sells bad news; no one wants to hear good news. Kids are killing kids. Victims have little protection. Violence is normal. Leaders cheat and lie. Everything is backwards. We need to pray for spiritual intervention. We need to have guidance from the Creator to help us rebuild our families, our communities and ourselves. Today, I will pray for spiritual intervention from the Great Spirit.

Grandfather, we pray for your help in a pitiful way.

Its a New Day

 The other day I was watching “Laugh In”, a wonderful silly and fun tv show from the late 1960’s. Goldie Hawn, a joyful comedienne, was talking about new people(meaning young) vs old people..I promote the idea that we are all ageless wonders and that we are all expressing qualities at different stages. In our society there are problems based on the “generation gap”, based on the idea that “younger” people are cooler than “older” people and that people in their “30’s” are hipper than people in their “50’s” and so on.
Many people feel bad because of their “number” and suffer from the idea of their “number”. From the time you are born, you are told that you are 6 months “old” and 10 years “old”. I would like to propose a new idea to the world. What if the next time someone asks you how “old” you are, you can say, “How NEW am I? I am 20 years “NEW”! Everyday is a new day and everyday I am reborn. Its makes you feel better and its true..and it gets rid of the belief that you are “OLD” whatever your “number” is that day.
I love it!
