[Words of Wisdom of Native Americans] Let’s ponder again the teachings of natives.


These are words of real wise people.
Japanese are supposed to have a mind of the same nature.
I think that washing away dust from our heart, our inherent heart will start shining freshly.  Do you ask me how we can wash it away?
The article posted on Raba Q on May 14 may be helpful to you.
I’m just joking.  Light is attracted to what you direct your consciousness toward.  Please cherish heart, not money.

English translation of an excerpt from a Japanese article: Martin Island ~ Sky and Forest and Water ~ - May 18, 2013 –

“Seeking for happiness of all people, gaze your eyes and listen carefully.
Don’t stop looking at this moment alone.  Instead, always try to bring into view the generations to come.”

The times seem to rush towards the opposite direction.
Let’s ponder again the teachings of natives.


Teachings of Native Americans


l  “When you get up in the morning, thank the light of the sun, your life and your power.  If you don’t understand why you have to thank them, it indicates that sin is coiling up in yourself.”

l  “God created everything in a simple manner.  Native American’s life is very simple.  We live freely.  The only one law we must obey is the law of nature, law of God.  We obey only that law .”
[Mathew King, the Lakota leader]

l  “Silence is a perfect balance among body, spirit and soul.  A person who keeps himself in balance is always quiet and never be shaken by a storm of existence; it’s just like a tree whose leaf never moves and also just like a shining pond with no ripples on it.
