Spirituality…

As some of you know, I am spiritually linked/entwined with many, if not all, of the Native American culture and beliefs. The following is taken from 365 Days of Walking the Road: The Native American Path to Leading a Spiritual Life Every Day by Terri Jean. This will be the first of many quotes to follow, as shared from this wonderful book, which I highly recommend you read…

“I love a people who have always made me welcome to the best they had . . . who are honest without laws, who have no jails and no poor-houses . . . who never take the name of God in vain . . . who worship God without a Bible, and I believe God loves them also . . . who are free from religious animosities . . . who have never raised a hand against me, or stolen my property, where there is no law to punish either . . . who never fought a battle with white men except on their own ground . . . and Oh, how I love a people who don’t live for the love of money!”

(- George Catlin, an American non-Native artist of the 1830s, speaking about the Native people he had encountered)
