SPIRITUALITY  

A man's soul can only travel as fast as his feet can carry him.  

Sometimes we try to get ahead of our selves. We try to make the spiritual unwordly ethereal. We try to remove the spiritual from the earthly and bodily aspects of ourselves. We try to find philosophies and techniques that remove us from our day-to-day existnece,thinking this will make us "holy." We want to ascend and transform our daily living to experience that which is beyond us.

Yet,here we are in this body,on this earthly plane,and doing what we do everyday. We are the earth. We are here-NOW. Our bodies,our lives,interact and are part of everything around us. It is only when we try to remove ourselves from our oneness with all things that our spirituality becomes seperate and eludes us.

My task here is to be fully human. As I embrace and live my human-ness, I know my in the oneness.

If a spirit becomes off balanced in the white man's world they call it sin. Traditional medicine is with the whole being. Most of the sickness today is of the spirit.

"What does it benefit a person if they gain the world and lose their souls?" When we are a sick in spirit,our bodies reflect illness. Yet,treating our bodies alone will never repair the souls.

We will never heal our souls unless we get right with the land,honor our Elders and our ancestors and listen to their wisdom,honor our commitments and treaties,and begin to live our our spirituality.
