I give my heartfelt thanks giving to our Beloved Creator, that I can say at 69, as my beloved father always told me, “Son we are only here for a short time!" Or like Crow Foot said, "Life is like the breath of a Buffalo on a cold day or a fire fly on a warm summer day or the shadows vanishing before the setting sun!" Then we travel to other planes of existence as different from this physical world as this physical world is different from the womb world in which we were conceived! When we leave behind our "Earth Suit" we only take with us those spiritual qualities that we have developed on our spiritual journey in this physical world.
It is my experience and understanding that these spiritual qualities are primarily manifested through our selfless service to the spiritual upliftment of our beloved Human Family and our dedication to possessing a “Pure, Kindly and Radiant Heart" that we each may be a "Sovereignty, Ancient, Imperishable and Everlasting!"
As difficult and painful as it is to accept, sometimes, the more spiritual tests and difficulties we are given the greater the harvest of spiritual qualities and gifts that we will take with us when we journey to the “Other Side Camp!" Understanding this, I have the utmost faith that Wakan Tanka and the Ancient of Days truly love all of those "Walking the Red Road", far, far beyond the “murmur of syllables and sounds!"
