Rise with the sun to pray. Pray alone. Pray
often. The Great Spirit will listen, if you only speak.
Be tolerant of those who are
lost on their path. Ignorance, conceit, anger, jealousy and greed stem
from a lost soul. Pray that they will find guidance.
Search for yourself, by
yourself. Do not allow others to make your path for you. It is your
road, and yours alone. Others may walk it with you, but no one can walk
it for you.
Treat the guests in your home
with much consideration. Serve them the best food, give them the best
bed and treat them with respect and honor.

whether from a person, a community, the wilderness or from a culture. It
was not earned nor given. It is not yours.
Respect all things that are
placed upon this earth—whether it be people, animal or plant. Honor the
Spirit in all things.
Honor other people’s
thoughts, wishes and words. Never interrupt another or mock or rudely
mimic them. Allow each person the right to personal expression.
Never speak of others in a
bad way. The negative energy that you put out into the universe will
multiply when it returns to you. All persons make mistakes. And all
mistakes can be forgiven. Bad thoughts cause illness of the mind, body
and spirit. Practice optimism.
Nature is not for us,
it is a part of us. They are part of your worldly family.

Honesty is the test of ones will within this universe.
