"A Cherokee Feast Of Days"...........February 5
- "A Cherokee Feast Of Days"Notice the characteristics of gentle people,
those who are not poised to react to every
negative situation. They don't sulk or pout, and
they truly want to help whenever they can. Gentle
people entertain no animosity or feel any glee
when someone stumbles. They do not give up on
loving and caring deeply--nor is it their nature to
push or control. They don't treat others as though
they are bugs caught under a glass.
Sometimes we try too hard to be everything to
everyone, and it is not possible. Gentle people help
where they can, but they do not demand results.
They allow peace. They appreciate others who give
so much, for so little.
The true human is someone who is aware, someone
who is, moment by moment, totally and completely
merged wth life. He is a listener.-JOSEPH RAEL, UTE

according to his own bringing up and his
sense of humor."-Charles A. Eastman (Ohiyesa)
"It is better to give than receive." But it doesn't
really matter if we are giving or receiving.
There is an identical feeling associated with
both. We get this feeling every time we re-
ceive, and we get this feeling every time we
give. We can't control when we receive gifts
but we can control when we give gifts. There-
fore, the more we give, the better we feel.
When we are given gifts, or someone does
something for us, it is the Indian way to honor
let me honor
those who are
good to me
