Grandfather says...you must not hurt anybody or do harm to anyone. You must not fight. Do right always. It will give you satisfaction in life."

--Wovoka, PAIUTE

The question one should ask themselves is: Do you want to be right or do you want to be happy? If you want to be right, this is a request from your ego. If you want to be happy then this is of the Great Spirit. The only meaning anything has is the meaning we give it. Maybe we should develop a philosophy of: Today is the last day of the rest of my life. If this were true, how easy it would be to let things go - how easy it would be to forgive.
Oh Great Spirit, let me live today as if it was my last. Let me express Your joy and be happy today. Let me see the joy and honor of living on the Red Road.

[ It is difficult to let go when what you have in possessions and what you know is all you got. There are so many layers to letting go, the physical first, then the spiritual. You ever wonder, why when people are dying they just don’t die? Well, they can’t let go. They are afraid of what they do not know. It’s just like letting go of anything else, people are afraid of what they do not know. Remember when you are letting go, you placing your full trust in GOD knowing that He will take care of you. I agree with this Elder in saying that it’s easier to forgive when all you have is GOD. GOD says live a right and just life. Well, it is right and just to let go, and let Him teach and guide you. shai]
