there, what is not there is there.

Definition of Integrity: the quality or state of being complete, undivided: spiritual, or aesthetic wholeness: organic unity: completeness.

It is a simple thing, wholeness that is undivided. It is also a very elusive quality. Emotional Integrity is having our heart, mind and will unified. When we are in our emotional integrity we can act without hesitation or doubt. The phrase of, “my mind says one thing, but my heart says another”, may be all too common in our lives. When this happens our will is divided and our actions hesitate with conflict of doubt in the mind and emotions.

When we live our lives from a place of Integrity we do not doubt ourselves. There is no second-guessing our actions or our words. Sometimes I see people try to superimpose a sense of integrity into their decisions by refusing to consider a second opinion. This can be the pretense of integrity in the name of not appearing weak or not living up to our own image of what we believe we should be. This is the ego’s version of integrity. The mind has the desire to believe that everything we do is in our integrity. Often we work very hard to make ourselves believe it we have integrity. But, it is a false image of integrity. If we have to convince ourselves that we are acting in our integrity, we are likely to be wrong. When we are in our integrity, our mind does not have to tell us what we are doing is right. The heart and will know and the mind follows without a doubt. Real emotional integrity doesn’t come with a sense of being right. It comes with a feeling of love. . . by Gary van Warmerdam

IN Secret Places

Secretive women, private in their nature, call men to them, who think beyond themselves into the light of who they are becoming. These women need that to grow the way plants need shadow as well as light. - Dawn Wolf, Keeper of Stories

Peace and tranquility can be contained and released.
Asanas hold this challenge without judging a soul. - Dawn Wolf, Keeper of Stories

Elder’s Meditation of the Day March 15

We were taught generosity to the poor and reverence for the Great Mystery. Religion was the basis of all Indian training.” –Charles A. Eastman (Ohiyesa), SANTEE SIOUX

Every Indian knows and has a feeling inside that, bottom line, our real purpose on earth is to be of service to our fellow man and to be of maximum service to the Great Spirit. The Creator designed the earth to be self supporting – everything is interconnected and all things were created to be of service to each other. The Indian way is to pray about all things. Religion is not separate from any part of our lives. Everything is spiritual and we are to view all matters in this way. Family is spiritual, work is spiritual, helping others is spiritual, our bodies are spiritual, our talk is spiritual, our thoughts are spiritual. We need to practice seeing all things as spiritual.

Great Spirit, today let me help the needy and allow me the wisdom to have respect and reverence for Your teachings.
