We do not want riches but we do want to train our children right. Riches would do us no good. We could not take them with us to the other world. We do not want riches, we want peace and love.
February 1 - Daily Feast
Ga as qua lv, the circle, infinite life in its cycling process - inhaling and exhaling. The sun draws moisture from the earth and disperses it back to us in a continual movement around the clock called life. We are on the journey of giving and receiving. Father-Creator knew we would not be self-sufficient and gave us willing hands and loving hearts with which to give and to receive. Look up, the sun and moon and stars are all round and travel in cycles. Our cycle should be the most beautiful of all - for we are life and spirit.
~ Even the seasons form a great circle in their changing, and always come back again to where they were. ~

Elder's Meditation of the Day - February 1
"You can't just sit down and talk about the truth. It doesn't work that way. You have to live it and be part of it and you might get to know it."
We all read books that have much information in them. Often we pick up on little sayings that we remember. Inside of us is the little owl, the owl of knowing. It talks to us-guiding us and nurturing us. Often when we get information, it's hard to live by, but it's easy to talk about. It's living the Red Road that counts-Walk the Talk. If we really want freedom in our lives, if we really want to be happy, if we really want to have peace of mind, it's the truth we must seek.
My Creator, help me in my search for the truth today.
'THINK on THESE THINGS'
By Joyce Sequichie Hifler
There is a friend you must meet. We all need friends and this no ordinary person. This one already knows you better than you know yourself. This friend likes you far better than you like yourself.
This is a friend that knows no envy, no jealousy and has no need to resent you, for supporting you is the real reason for this friendship. This unknown and long hidden friend is you! The real of you that no one can hurt or taint or find fault with, so trust this friend. Get to know and depend on the real you.
