We are social beings. Yet we are conditioned and taught to be strong and do things ourselves. We have been convinced that reaching out to others for support is a sign of weakness. Often times this leaves many of us just feeling lonely. When life bears down on you, do you have someone to talk to? Is there a hug close by that you can fall into for support? Are you able to set aside the status quo of always doing life on our own and are you able to reach out to get some help?
In First Nation philosophy, we who are in the world are never alone. The Great Spirit fills the air like a giant hug. The Great Spirit in all things surrounds us every minute of every day and its influence is kind and powerful. Yet many people are unaware that there is this vast sea of Energy in which we all swim. It is this Energy that brings us to our strength, it empowers us and hugs us when we are alone. It loves us and fills us up when we are sad and empty. The Energy of the Universe is wise and whole, powerful and real. And even when you are alone, you will never be lonely once you have reconnected to this Energy.
Are you ready?
