Given the proper incentive, no mountain, it seems, is too high to climb,
no current too swift to swim, if one is a Cherokee.

Early mornings have supernatural qualities, unreal, yet more real than
most things we put stock in. So many beauties, so many things that
happen within our sight are overlooked and unappreciated. They pass
without notice and will continue for the sake of the land - whether they
are seen or ignored. Nature thrives in place where people give up. It
has defied verdicts placed on its very existence - and still creates
breathtaking views. We have the same abilities if we can keep out the
greed and grime that pecks at our minds. The fact that we are u ne na i,
wealthy, escapes us when we litter the grass ablaze with dew gems and
scatter debris in every sparkling stream.

Elder's Meditation of the Day - December 1
"Sometimes dreams are wiser then waking."
--Black Elk (Hehaka Sapa), OGLALA
The Great Spirit has many ways of communicating with the human being. He
talks to us through the five senses-sight, hearing, taste, smell and
touch. For example, we can observe nature and see a lesson or get an
answer. These five senses function primarily in the physical world. But
we also have the ability to receive communication from the Unseen World.
To do this we have a sixth sense. It comes in the form of dreams,
imagination, intuition, inspiration or a hunch. Along with the dream or
intuitive thought there is a feeling, a knowing. We just know it's true
without the need for proof. We need to pay attention to our dreams and
intuition. Don't cast them off as being silly or useless. Be respectful
to our dreams and feelings.
