Elder’s Meditation – Respect for Mother Earth
“My Grandfather survived on this earth without using anything that did not go back into the earth. The
whole world could learn from that.”
— Floyd Westerman, SIOUX
Our grandfathers knew how to live in harmony. They did not create poisons or technologies that destroyed
things. They did not make their decisions based on greed or for selfish reasons. They did not take more then
they used. Their thoughts and actions were about respect. The Elders conducted themselves in a respectful
way. We need to consider our actions around respect for Mother Earth.
My Creator, have the grandfathers teach us today about the old ways.
