 Life/Death Transitions

LIFE/DEATH TRANSITIONS  

What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a

buffalo in the winter time. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass

and loses itself in the sunset.

These words about life were spoken in the dying hours of Crowfoot. Not

only was a great speaker and a poet, but in his dying words he gives us

one great gift. He gives the knowledge and the comfort of the living

circle of life.

Death is not and ending. It only one phase in the never ending circle of life

when we go from babies to adults, Life is not a linear, stopping and starting.

Death is a transition to the next phase in the circle. We come to know and

live the circle,we feel no fear,no anziety. There are only trasitions

that affirm the living.

The circle, the Medicine Wheel, is a gift of life
