Elder's Meditation - October 16

"Many religions have been brought to this land. And the way my religion is, they teach me, and they taught me, and told me to resect all religions. And I still do that."
--Horace Axtell, NEZ PERCE


The Creator put on this Earth many different religions which represent different roads to walk to God. All religions are right and good if the path is the path to God. Should we be judging which road is better or worse than the other? When we accept each other's way we can stand in a circle, hold hands and listen to each other as we pray to God. Let us be more accepting of the religions of others.

Great Spirit - God, Grandfather, Grandmother, Lord - let me know peace.

This one is truely beautiful; it has the potential to heal wounds and strengthen each belief system.
My Rabbi; my friend, wrote on this once, in a local paper. He likened different religious beliefs as paths up the mountain. These paths all led to Truth. It doesn't matter which path is chosen, as long as we strive to work our way up that mountain.
Thanks for sharing this...
Shalom!

I agree, Teach. Before there were paths, there were simply mountains. Man made and chose the paths, and people are free to choose whatever path takes them closest to the Truth.
