      A Cherokee Feast Of Days

      Never turn your good successful idea
      into an organization and set up councils and com-
      mittees to run it. If you do, you will lose the com-
      mon touch and the organization will turn to catchy
      phrases and initials that identify it. Committees
      will spend their time having lunch and talking
      about promotion rather than quality.
      People lose sight of quality and service as
      they try to squeeze out more hours, more money,
      more product that no longer is what it once was.
      Watch out for titles and power and wretched little
      people who want recognition with as little work as
      possible.
      Come down off of it. Do good service,
      make a good product that is not chicken soup from
      chemical flavorings. Do everything with the motto,
      "I can be trusted." It will amaze you what it can do.

      so."

      Meditations with Native American Elders
       
       
      "I believe that being a medicine man,
      more than anything else, is a state of
      mind, a way of looking at and
      understanding this earth, a sense of what
      it is all about."

      The Medicine Wheel explains different ways of
      looking at the world. The four directions are
      the East, the South, the West, and the North.
      In the East is the view of the eagle - the eagle
      flies high and sees the earth from that point of
      view. The South is the direction of the mouse.
      Moving on the earth, the mouse will not see
      what the eagle sees. Both the eagle and the
      mouse see the truth. The West is the direction
      of the bear - the bear will see different from
      the mouse and the eagle. From the North
      comes the point of view of the bison. To be a
      Medicine Man you must journey through all
      points of view and develop the mind to see the
      interconnectedness of all four directions. This
      takes time, patience and an open mind. Even-
      tually, you understand there is only love.
       
      Great Spirit,
      today, allow
      my mind to
      stay open.

      The essential joy of being with horses is
      that it brings us in contact with the rare
      elements of grace, beauty, spirit, and fire.
