      First you are to think always of God,
      of Wankan-Tanka. Second, you are to
      use all your powers to care for your
      people and especially the poor.

      In traditional Cherokee culture, accor-
      ding to the book Voices of Our Ancestors
      by Dhyani Ywahoo (Cherokee), a
      person does not reach adulthood until
      age 51.

      When temptation comes, I don't say,
      'Yes,' and I don't say, 'No.' I say, 'Later.'
      I just keep walking the Red Road - down
      the middle. When you're in the middle,
      you don't go to either extreme. You allow
      both sides to exist."
      -Dr. A. C. Ross (Ehanamani), LAKOTA
       
       
      We need to practice controlling our focus.
      Whatever we focus on we become. We also
      become whatever we practice. We need to fo-
      cus on balance. Whenever something comes
      along to tilt us off balance, we need to be
      grateful, because it allows the opportunity to
      practice our focus. Sometimes this is called
      temptation. Temptation in itself is not bad.
      What really counts is what we do with it when
      it happens. We need to practice controlling
      our focus and keeping our thinking focused
      on the Red Road.
       
                                                                                                        Great Spirit,
      today, guide
      me through my
      temptations
      and allow me
      to focus on the
      Red Road.
