The Great Mystery

Frank Ford sent me the following meditative teaching today:

From Wakan Tanka, the Great Spirit, there came a great unifying life force that flowed in and through all things-the flowers of the plains, blowing winds, rocks, trees, birds, animals-and was the same force that had been breathed into the first man. Thus all things were kindred, and were brought together by the same Great Mystery.

--Chief Luther Standing Bear (1868–1939)
