10 Incredible Pieces Of Wisdom From Indigenous Elders

3."Only when the last tree has died and the last river has been poisoned and the last fish been caught will we realize we cannot eat money." – Cree Indian Proverb

The Native Americans were more than proficient at getting what they need from nature without tipping the balance of nature. We now take and take, with no thought of the future that we are striving so hard to see.

4. When you are in doubt, be still, and wait; When doubt no longer exists for you then go forward with courage. So long as mists envelop you, be still; Be still until the sunlight pours through and dispels the mists, as it surely will. Then act with courage. - Ponca Chief White Eagle

If unsure what to do next, do not rush out, destructively seeking answers you already have buried within you. Be still and listen to your true self, it will tell you everything you will ever need to know about yourself.
