|Elder's Meditation of the Day September 11|
|"Listen to all the teachers in the woods. Watch the trees, the animals, and all living things - you'll learn more from them than from books."|
|--Joe Coyhis, STOCKBRIDGE-MUNSEE|
|Nature is a living example of how communities live in harmony. If you go into the forest or mountain and sit still and watch, ask yourself, what lessons are being taught? Then watch how the animals conduct themselves. The trees could represent diversity. The flowers could represent people. Notice how everything in nature assists one another. See how balance works. See how conflict is handled. Can you see acts of forgiveness? Can you spot respect? Nature is full of wisdom if we will only consider her to be our teacher.|
My Creator, today let me learn from nature.
