How many times have we heard a nugget of wisdom from an unlikely source? Each of us can remember the comfort of a smile, a kind word, or a piece of sound advice from someone whom we least expected it from. Perhaps this was God’s way of reminding us that we all have value to each other and to God. –In God’s Care/Karen Casey | More…
There are certain prayers, or actions we can take, that will call the Powers. The Powers can only work through the people.
The Powers are always waiting to express themselves through people that are ready. Every person born is born with a purpose.
They have a song to sing. They have a mission to accomplish. Every true purpose will always be about serving the Creator and helping others.
When we let the Powers know that we are ready to serve the people, they can now do things to help the people and make things better for them. The decision is powerful because it turns an idea into action. Elders Meditations | More…
Everything on the earth has a purpose and a reason for its existence. Every human being is a warrior and every warrior has a song written in his/her heart and that song must be sung or the soul forever remains restless.
This song is always about serving the Great Spirit and helping the people. This song is always sung for the people.

It’s comforting to be reminded that our lives are purposeful. Each one of us is giving what we are called upon to give when we are in a right relationship with God. –Each Day a New Beginning/Karen Casey | More…
Every person is born for a purpose. We may know our purpose very early in our lives, or it may take some time.
Sometimes we pick our goals to please others.
Sometimes others pick our goals to make themselves happy.
Often this makes us unhappy.
We need to pray to the creator and ask Him what our purpose is.
When we live inside our purpose, our path is smooth.
When we are aligned to our purpose, we are happy and content. -Elders | More…
