"Each of us must know in our minds and believe in our hearts that even though we are different, you are like me and I am like you."

--Larry P. Aitken, CHIPPEWA

One of the definitions of humility is having an awareness of one's own character defects. To recognize and acknowledge that one has imperfections is being humble. We should never pray for ourselves unless by doing so it would help another person. To have self-importance puts self first and this is not humble. We each have strengths and we each have weaknesses. Both the strengths and weaknesses are sacred. Life is sacred. We learn sacred things from weaknesses also. Therefore, all lives are developed through trial and error, strength and weakness, ups and downs, gains and losses - all of these are part of life and life is sacred.

Great Mystery, let me see and know about the sacredness of life.


[I disagree with this Elder,  GOD teaches that we are first in our own lives, that if we do not take care of ourself, who will.  No one   If we do not take care of ourself who will take care of those we take care of.?   No one.    Always pray for yourself, but don't forget about others who also may 'need' the same things you are praying for.  shai]
