Native American ten commandments.
The Earth is our Mother,
care for her
Honor all your relations
Open your heart and soul to the
All Life is sacred; treat all
beings with respect
Take from the Earth what is
needed and nothing more
Do what needs to be done for
the good of all
Give constant thanks to the
Great Spirit for each new day
Speak the truth; but only of
the good of others
Follow the rythms of nature;
rice and retire with the sun
Enjoy Lifes journey, but
leave no tracs
People are often unreasonble, illogical and self-centered;
....Forgive them anyway!
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;
....Be kind anyway!
If you are succesful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies;
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
....Be honest and frank anyway!
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;
....Be happy anyway!
The good you to today, people will often forget tomorrow;
....Do good anyway!
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;
....Give the world the best you´ve got anyway!
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway!
