Ojibway Meditations

I just started reading this truly wonderful book of an Ojibway Nation man’s morning spiritual practice and meditations. I, too, lived an Ojibway life and recall that I was a woman. Our lives were very quiet and peaceful as hunter gatherers along the shores of Lake Superior near Pancake Bay. This was before we white folks decided to set up residence on this continent.

Heal The World

Heal The World

There is NO ‘One True Path’.
There is NO ‘God of Wrath’.
FEAR just made it up
long ago, long ago.
NO Race is ‘superior’.
No Gender’s ‘inferior’.
FEAR just made it up
long ago, long ago.
GOD loves NO ONE ‘better’
NOR ‘hates’ someone EVER.
FEAR just made it up
long ago, long ago.
There’s NO ‘Divine Right’.
NO Person’s ‘always right’.
FEAR just made it up
long ago, long ago.
NO Leader’s ‘the greatest’.
NO Nation is ‘the best’.
FEAR just made it up
long ago, long ago.
NOW it’s time to ‘wake up’-
end the strife- value LIFE.
Let the FEAR disappear.
See God’s Truth so clear-
LIFE is ONE. We’re ALL ONE.
LIFE is ONE. We’re ALL ONE.
Love ALL LIFE. Love ALL LIFE.
WE’RE ALL ONE. WE’RE ALL ONE.
Heal the World. We’re ALL one.
