The Native American Code of Ethics

Posted in Indiansk visdom on 11 mars 2013 by icole8

The Native American Code of Ethics

1. Rise with the Sun to pray. Pray alone. Pray often. The Great Spirit will listen, if you only speak.

2. Be tolerant of those who are lost on their path. Ignorance, conceit, anger, jealousy and greed stem from a lost soul. Pray that they will find guidance.

3. Search for yourself, by yourself. Do not allow others to make your path for you. It is your road, and yours alone. Others may walk it with you, but no one can walk it for you.

4. Treat the guests in your home with much consideration. Serve them the best food, give them the best bed and treat them with respect and honor.

5. Do not take what is not yours whether from a person, a community, the wilderness or from a culture. If it was not earned or given, it is not yours.

6. Respect all things that are placed upon this earth – whether it be people or plant.

7. Honor other people’s thoughts, wishes and words. Never interrupt another or mock or rudely mimic them. Allow each person the right to personal expression.

8. Never speak of others in a bad way. The negative energy that you put out into the universe will multiply when it returns to you.

9. All persons make mistakes. And all mistakes can be forgiven.

10. Bad thoughts cause illness of the mind, body and spirit. Practice optimism.

11. Nature is not FOR us, it is a PART of us. They are part of your worldly family.

12. Children are the seeds of our future. Plant love in their hearts and water them with wisdom and life’s lessons. When they are grown, give them space to grow.

13. Avoid hurting the hearts of others. The poison of your pain will return to you.

14. Be truthful at all times. Honesty is the test of one’s will.

15. Keep yourself balanced. Your Mental self, Spiritual self, Emotional self, and Physical self – all need to be strong, pure and healthy. Work out the body to strengthen the mind. Grow rich in spirit to cure emotional ails.

16. Make conscious decisions as to who you will be and how you will react. Be responsible for your own actions.

17. Respect the privacy and personal space of others. Do not touch the personal property of others – especially sacred and religious objects. This is forbidden.

18. Be true to yourself first. You cannot nurture and help others if you cannot nurture and help yourself first.

19. Respect others religious beliefs. Do not force your belief on others.

20. Share your good fortune with others. Participate in charity

It is time

Posted in Indiansk visdom on 22 januari 2012 by icole8
It is time to speak your truth.
Create your community,
be good to each other.
Do not look outside yourself for a leader.
There is a river flowing now very fast,
it is so great and swift.
That there are those who will be afraid,
they will try to hold onto the shore.
They will feel they are being pulled apart,
and will suffer greatly.
Understand that the river knows its’ destination,
the elders say we must let go of the shore.
Push off into the middle of the river,
keep our eyes open and our heads above water.
Hopi Elders
Indigenous Peoples of Turtle Island
 

Peace

Posted in Indiansk visdom on 12 januari 2012 by icole8

 

‎”The first peace, which is the most important, is that which comes within the souls of people when they realize their relationship, their Oneness with the universe and all its powers, and when they realize that at the center of the universe dwells the Great Spirit, and that this center is really everywhere, it is within each of us.”

I will

Posted in Indiansk visdom on 21 januari 2011 by icole8

I will think about what kind of person I want to be when I am an Elder.
I will start developing myself now to be this person.
I will walk with the Great Spirit and the Grandfathers at my side.
I will develop myself to remain positive.
I will develop a good mind.
I will examine myself daily to see what I did good and what I need to improve.
I will examine my strengths and weaknesses; then I will ask the Creator to guide me.
I will develop a good mind.
Each day, I will listen for the Creator’s voice in the wind.
I will watch nature and ask to be shown a lesson which will occur on my path.
I will seek out the guiding principles which guided my ancestors.
I will walk in dignity, honor and humility, conducting myself as a warrior.
I will seek the guidance of the Elders so that I may maintain the knowledge of culture, ceremonies and songs, and so that I may pass these on to future generations.
I choose to do all these things myself, because no one else can do them for me.
I know I CANNOT GIVE AWAY WHAT I DON’T HAVE, so I will need to learn to walk the talk.

Native American note to self

Drums beating

Posted in Indiansk visdom on 11 november 2010 by icole8

Drums beating, chanting on the wind sounds of handmade instruments shaking. Smell of sage and sweet grass burning, offering homage to the spirits who have gone before and are still watching over
us.

Grandfather Fire, Grandmother Moon, White Buffalo Woman and more hear the call and come to dance around the fire and sing the sweet songs of the earth. Feet stomping, beads flying, drums beat faster, chanting and singing grows and softens, grows and softens.

The Great Spirits return to their sky homes, taking our prayers to the four directions with them forever we are grateful for this drumming song.

Great Spirit

”Oh GREAT SPIRIT, help me always to speak the truth quietly, to listen with an open mind when others speak, and to remember the peace that may be found in silence.”

Cherokee Prayer
