Elder's Meditation of the Day - February 14

"Sometimes, life is very simple, but it is we two-leggeds, we
who are thought to be smart that make it complicated."
-- Larry P. Aitkin, CHIPPEWA

Sometimes it may take years for us to find out what we are really after - it is to
be happy. The Elders say, lead a simple life. This doesn't necessarily mean poor,
it means simple. There are some things that makes life complicated such as needing
control, needing power or being resentful or angry. These things make complications
happen. We need to walk in balance in every area of our lives.

Great Spirit, let me lead a simple life.

Elder's Meditation of the Day - February 15
"One of the essential characteristics we need to learn as men
was to be gentle, and to be gentle means to be serene, to enter
meditation or a prayerful state in the morning and evening."
-- Larry P. Aitken, CHIPPEWA

The most important talk we can do during any day, is to start the day with prayer
and meditation. We need to ask the Creator to be in our lives. We ask Him to direct
our thinking. We ask Him for the courage and the power to be gentle. In the morning
quiet time, we make our request for guidance using our spiritual tools. We pray for
the  people and we pray for ourselves. In the evening we thank the Creator for the
day, for the lessons and for the opportunity to be of service to others. Then we go
to sleep.

Great Spirit, today, show me the power of being gentle.

Elder's Meditation of the Day - February 16

"Because woman lives so close to our first mother, the Earth,
she emanates the strength and harmonious nature of all things."
-- Larry P. Aitken, CHIPPEWA

At an Elders gathering, held in July 1991, we were told the Indian woman would play
an instrumental part in leading the healing of Indian nations. The old people said we
were to look up to her in a sacred manner. They said the Earth Mother would give the
woman special gifts of love. The woman and the Earth Mother are connected in a special
way. Women should pay attention to the lessons coming from the earth. Men should treat
the women with respect, dignity and honor.

Grandfather, Grandmother, give the Indian woman Your strength to heal our earth.

Elder's Meditation of the Day - February 17

"Silence and self-control permeate the entirety of our lives"
-- Larry P. Aitken, CHIPPEWA

The Creator gave us all the Red Road, and on this Red Road we are required to
think and act in a spiritual way. To make sure I conduct myself according to the
Red Road, I must make sure I develop my self-discipline. Self-control works
best when we pray for the courage and power to do the will of the Great Spirit.
We are here on the Earth to do the will of the Great Spirit. Sometimes we must
battle ourselves to do this.

Great Spirit, help me to have my self-control guided by spiritual ways.

Elder's Meditation of the Day - February 18
 
"Laughter is a necessity in life that does not cost much,
and the Old  Ones say that one of the greatest healing
powers in our life is the ability to laugh."
-- Larry P. Aitken, CHIPPEWA

Laughter is a good stress eliminator. Laughter causes healing powers to be
distributed through our bodies. Laughter helps heal relationships that are
having problems. Laughter can change other people. Laughter can heal the
sick. Laughter is spiritual. One of the greatest gifts among Indian people
has been our ability to laugh. Humor is natural to Indian people. Sometimes
the only thing left to do is laugh.

Great Spirit, allow me to laugh when times get tough.

Elder's Meditation of the Day - February 19

The Old Man said,`you are both ugly and handsome and you
must accept your ugliness as well as your handsomeness in
order to really accept yourself."
-- Larry P. Aitken, CHIPPEWA

My Grandfather told me one time that any person who is judgmental to another
is also judgmental to themselves. If we want to be free of being judgmental, we
need to first work on how judgmental we are to ourselves. If we quit judging
ourselves and start accepting ourselves as we are, we will start accepting others
as they are. Then we will experience a level of new freedom.

Great Spirit, let me accept myself as I am - honoring both my strengths and my
weaknesses.
