“So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their view, and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and its purpose in the service of your people. Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide.
Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place. Show respect to all people and grovel to none.
When you arise in the morning give thanks for the food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies only in yourself. Abuse no one and no thing, for abuse turns the wise ones to fools and robs the spirit of its vision.
When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home.” ~ Chief Tecumse
There are certain teachings in life that touch me to the very core and this is one of them. Having Native American blood running in my veins, I can hear these words and know with certainty that Great Spirit was speaking them through this amazing teacher. “So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart” is such a depiction of how I welcome each day, each moment of my life. Enjoying every breath I take and knowing that there is nothing that compares to the love I feel in my heart has led to an inner peace. No one of us knows when we will draw our last breath, nor should that be the focus of our lives. Instead, think only of the memories you are making and the footprint you are leaving on the planet.
Dear Angels, how do we rise up to our full potential and stay focused on living our lives instead of dying our deaths?
Dear Ones, we offer you the story of the eagle, a most regal bird and brilliant in its way of life. Did you know that an eagle can foresee when a storm is approaching long before it breaks? Instead of hiding, the eagle will fly to some high point and wait for the winds to come so that when the storm hits, it sets its wings so that the wind can pick it up and lift it above the storm. While the storm rages below, the eagle soars above it. The great eagle is thinking ahead of the challenge that it intuitively knows is coming just as you can do. In not hiding or running from your challenges, you are rising above the situation while others may be living in fear and dread. We encourage you, Dear Ones, to soar in every given moment. Sometimes it will be easy to do, yet sometimes it takes more effort to trust that you are safe and that no matter the outcome you were willing to face the storm.
Dear Angels, I am ready to soar! Thank you. I love you. Namaste y’all.
Today, I promise to keep my focus on the now and allow myself to soar above every storm that comes my way. No matter the outcome, I will face it fearlessly.
