15 REMINDERS FROM THE ELDERS:

1. Get up with the sun to pray. Pray alone.
2. Be tolerant of those who have lost their way. Ignorance, presumption, anger, jealousy and greed come from a lost soul. Pray for them to find guidance.
3. Find yourself, by your own means. Do not let others make your path for you. It is your path, and only yours. Others may walk with you, but no one can make your way (or walk your path) for you.
4. Treat guests in your home with great consideration. Serve them the best food, give them the best bed and treat them with respect and honor.
5. Do not take what is not yours, whether from a person, a community, from the jungle or from a culture. It was not given or won. It is not yours.
6. Respect all the things that are on this earth, be they people, plants and animals.
7. Honor the thoughts, desires and words of all people. Never break them in, or make fun of them, or imitate them rudely. It gives each person the right to their personal expression.
8. Never talk about others in a bad way. The negative energy you put into the universe will multiply when it returns to you.
9. All people make mistakes. And all the mistakes can be forgiven.
10. Bad thoughts cause illness to the mind, body and spirit. Practice optimism.
11. Nature is not FOR us. It is PART of us. She's part of your family in the world.
12. Children are the seeds of our future. Sow love in your hearts and water them with wisdom and life lessons. When they grow up, just give them space to grow up.
13. Avoid hurting the hearts of others. The poison of their suffering will return to you.
14. Be true (transparent ) all the time. Honesty is the test of one's will in this universe.
15. Keep yourself balanced. Your Mental person, your Spiritual person, your Emotional person, and your Physical person: they all have the need to be strong, pure and healthy.

This is wisdom?

Bob Wright
That’s wisdom (and common advice) from the Indian wars. They had all seen tortured bodies and nobody wanted to go through that.

When all hope was lost you shot your wife and kids and yourself. Harsh reality they lived with.

Truthfully I don’t see a lot of practical wisdom in the original list. Nothing against Turd or “The Elders”

Check your oil. Would be #1 on my list.

And in these modern times most folks are tortured from within.

A darn shame so many never look within to discover what may be causing their anxiety, depression, negative thoughts, despair, etc.

To set high goals, and live up to them, is the measure of a man's integrity. Maybe it counts for nothing to the world, but, as the old song put it, ".............I'll leave this old World with a satisfied mind."*

IMHO, these comments are incredibly relevant to today's world. As Hittman said, we really need to look within ourselves to find who we are, and this list really focuses on that within frame of mind.

There is nothing from without a man, that entering into him can defile him: but the things which come out of him, those are they that defile the man. Mark 7:15

Plan for your adversary's capability, not what you think he might do. ( No author given because it has been paraphrased so many different ways. Think Sun Tzu or Clauswicz )

Sorry, but #11 is Bullscat. I believe in Jesus Christ, not mother nature. ( Witchcraft ).

Read #11 a couple times. Just don’t see where that “wisdom” invokes witchcraft at the exclusion of Jesus Christ.

Just my opinion, you’re welcome to your own.

The Bible defines worship of creation rather than the creator as witchcraft.
