Native American Wisdom To Live Your Life To The Fullest!!

As a people, Native American Indians have a great wealth of wisdom that we should treasure and pay heed to. They have their own, very unique, view of the world and the challenges that we, as a species, face. As you’ll see from the upcoming quotes and sayings, there is a great deal we could learn from the long-standing Indian culture. 

Knowledge/Wisdom

Seek wisdom, not knowledge. Knowledge is of the past, Wisdom is of the future.     – Lumbee

Wisdom comes only when you stop looking for it and start living the life the Creator intended for you – Hopi

If we wonder often, the gift of knowledge will come– Arapaho

Our first teacher is our own heart – Cheyenne

Peace
It is no longer good enough to cry peace, we must act peace, live peace and live in peace – Shenandoah

Between individuals, as between nations, peace means respect for the rights of others – Benito Juarez, Zapoteca

Force, no matter how concealed, begets resistance– Lakota

Like the grasses showing tender faces to each other, thus should we do, for this was the wish of the Grandfathers of the World – Black Elk, Oglala Lakota Sioux

I do not think the measure of a civilization is how tall its buildings of concrete are, but rather how well its people have learned to relate to their environment and fellow man – Sun Bear, Chippewa
Children/Future Generations

Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children.
In our every deliberation, we must consider the impact of our decisions on the next seven generations – Iroquois Maxim

Children learn from what they see. We need to set an example of truth and action – Howard Rainer, Taos Pueblo-Creek

Cherish youth, but trust old age – Pueblo

Grown men can learn from very little children for the hearts of the little children are pure. 

 Therefore, the Great Spirit may show to them many things which older people miss – Black Elk, Oglala Lakota Sioux

Steve Jobs – Last letter!!

I reached the pinnacle of success in the business world.
In others’ eyes, my life is an epitome of success.

However, aside from work, I have little joy. In the end, wealth is only a fact of life that I am accustomed to.

At this moment, lying on the sick bed and recalling my whole life, I realize that all the recognition and wealth that I took so much pride in, have paled and become meaningless in the face of impending death.

In the darkness, I look at the green lights from the life supporting machines and hear the humming mechanical sounds, I can feel the breath of god of death drawing closer…

Now I know, when we have accumulated sufficient wealth to last our lifetime, we should pursue other matters that are unrelated to wealth…

Should be something that is more important:

Perhaps relationships, perhaps art, perhaps a dream from younger days …

Non-stop pursuing of wealth will only turn a person into a twisted being, just like me.

God gave us the senses to let us feel the love in everyone’s heart, not the illusions brought about by wealth.

The wealth I have won in my life I cannot bring with me.

What I can bring is only the memories precipitated by love.

That’s the true riches which will follow you, accompany you, giving you strength and light to go on.

Love can travel a thousand miles. Life has no limit. Go where you want to go. Reach the height you want to reach. It is all in your heart and in your hands.

What is the most expensive bed in the world? – “Sick bed” …

You can employ someone to drive the car for you, make money for you but you cannot have someone to bear the sickness for you.

Material things lost can be found. But there is one thing that can never be found when it is lost – “Life”.

When a person goes into the operating room, he will realize that there is one book that he has yet to finish reading – “Book of Healthy Life”.

Whichever stage in life we are at right now, with time, we will face the day when the curtain comes down.

Treasure Love for your family, love for your spouse, love for your friends…

Treat yourself well. Cherish others.

What is achieved by this?? By Killing People – Death is for everyone, Until Then allow to Live!!

Is this the world with peace!! What is power how many days – why people don’t realise everyone have to die one day until then can’t have clam lifestyle?? Killing people burning buses, rape mass muder ??

What is achieved by this?? Before killing anyone, for a second can’t think opposite person is same with blood and flesh??

After few days it’s just remains as news and adding one more bad history?? Why and what’s the point???

Stop it!!
