A Quote by Cheewa James on native american, life, living, and proverbs

Learn how to withhold judgment
Learn to listen
Get in touch with your own inner self
Look at life with joy
Don't ever cry over something that cannot cry over you.

A Quote by Marianne on life, awakening, hope, faith, marianne, and native american

This Road called Life.........

There is no destination on this Road.
It is constant awakening, and reawakening,
discovery after discovery.

Awakening is like waking up after a long nap
and feeling like you have been sleeping your life away;
caught in the mundane rituals of living.

The learning process on this road is never finished.
There is no Master degree, there is no certification.
There is only the point where we Cross over
to the Blue Road of Spirit
and look upon this life
and see the beauty and magnificence
of it in the Great Web;
Of the lessons learned,
and the Lives touched.

A Quote by Marianne on biker, steel horse, marianne goldweber, village, cleveland, native american, peace, freedom, change, wind, and love

Steele Horse

Wind in my hair astride my steed
Ancient memories of great prairies
Abundant with Buffalo
Majestic mountains
Gold grass waving
Freedom in the wind
Over ancient lands
Colors magnificent
Warrior pride
The days of wild ponies a memory
The horse is steel
The spirit lives
The ancestors in the wind call my name.

A Quote by Marianne on faith, fear, eagle, native american, rise, leap, vision, and peace

Brother Eagle

Who's sight is keen and talons sharp,

Help me spot the prey and hit the mark

Help me rise above my  human life

and trust the winds that give me flight.

And when its time for the young to leave

A gentle nudge is all they need

From up above the view is clear

I must have Faith and have no Fear.

A Quote by Marianne on marianne, cleveland, sharing, banquet, native american, homeless, hunger, kindness, compassion, love, peace, community, enough, without, children, and need

Imagine being invited to a banquet where you bring your own meal-
and you brought a steak ,baked potatoes and asparagus with Boston cream pie for desert.  

Joining you at that table were a sampling of the human diversity from your community.  
Across from you  at this table was a mother with children who had nothing to bring-
how much would you enjoy your meal without sharing it?

A Quote by Chief Arvol Looking Horse on chief arvol looking horse, mitakuye oyasin, native american, all our relations, relatives, nation, humankind, spirit, blood relatives, and human race

When we say Mitakuye Oyasin - "All Our Relations" 
 But the word Mitakuye means relations and Oyasin means more than family, more than a Nation, more than all of humankind. Everything that has a spirit.

A Quote by Chief Joseph on freedom, life, humanity, native american, indigenous, wisdom, strength, and courage

Let me be a free man; free to travel, free to stop, free to work, free to trade where I chose, free to chose my own teachers, free to follow the religion of my fathers, free to trade and think and act for myself, and I will obey every law or submit to the penalty.

Chief Joseph (1840 - 1904)
