Midweek reminder: The meaning we give it

“The question one should ask themselves is: Do you want to be right or do you want to be happy? If you want to be right, this is a request from your ego. If you want to be happy then this is of the Great Spirit. The only meaning anything has is the meaning we give it. Maybe we should develop a philosophy of: Today is the last day of the rest of my life. If this were true, how easy it would be to let things go--how easy it would be to forgive.” -From Meditations with Native American Elders: The Four Seasons


  1. It seems to me that age helps one come to this wisdom. Or maybe I was just more ornery than most...

    Letting go is easier now. Forgiveness comes more easily too.

  2. Very thought-provoking. I think this can apply to our relationships with ourselves, as well. As in "do you want to enjoy this moment, or do you want to honor your ego and g for some unattainable perfection that won't be achieved?" Same with creating. Enjoy the process or focus only on end product. This is a perfectly timed message- thank you!
