This was handed to me from my Dad when I went off to university and left home in 1997. It’s a grounding piece for me. Thanks Dad. Kiichi-meegwetch.
Three Statements of “Ancient Wisdom”
Statement 1. The need for individuals to have “Family Belonging ness”.
Statement 2. The need for individuals to have a sense of what is RIGHT and what is WRONG.
Statement 3. The need for balance between “Individual-ism” and “Group-ism”.
There is a need to understand, use and blend these statements in order to maintain and continue balance.
Famous Prayer of Thanks by Chief Seattle
Teach your children that the earth is our Mother
As, whatever befalls the Earth, befalls the children of the earth.
We are part of the earth, and the earth is part of us and,
We belong to the earth.
This we know, “All things are connected”.
Like the blood which unites one family, all things are connected,
For we did not weave the web of life.
We are merely a strand in it.
Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves and to our children.
Let us give thanks for the web and the Circle that connects us all
