This weekend, Team CANA was blessed with a special visit from our brother and teammate Moses Brings Plenty. We look forward to these visits from our brother due to his strong spiritual presence. Each visit is always impactful and marks us all in different ways. This visit, I had the pleasure of interviewing my brother and I wanted to share one of the powerful messages he left me with. They are jewels that each of us can use and apply to our everyday life.
For those of you who follow my blog posts; you know the start of 2017 was a tough one for me. I was coping with the loss of three of my close loved ones; two of them unexpected. In talking to Mo, I was able to find peace and comfort. I no longer view these situations as losses, but as gains. I know that I now have three strong spirits looking over me and walking with me every step of the way.
The lesson that Mo helped me understand is that death isn’t the end of something; it’s the start of a transition into the spiritual world. He explained to me the fact that there is no word in the indigenous language to describe death. The word or concept doesn’t exist because our indigenous brothers and sisters focused on life, and what it means to live.
This jewel bestowed upon me made it a lot easier for me to cope with death and allowed me to view life from a different perspective. In the past, I looked at death as a dark and morbid thing. I viewed it as someone being taken away from me. I was unable to see the positive in this spiritual transition from one realm to another. I now realize that if you’re occupied with living a righteous and fulfilling life, you’ll have no time to focus on death. Death will only have relevance when the time comes.
That being said, I think we need to look at our planet. We need to think about the fact that this planet has, and always will, provided us with everything necessary to support life. But, if we continue to not value life and the health of our planet, we will have to look at death as a very dark and morbid thing. If we take this beautiful planet for granted and allow greed to blind us to what’s truly important; we’ll have to prepare our children and grandchildren for a world where water is fought over the way oil is today.
This blog is different from many of my others, this is a call to action. I need anyone who loves life, and our planet, to step up and do what you need to do to rewild and protect our land and animals.
