“Everything on the earth has a purpose, every disease an herb to cure it, and every person a mission. This is the Indian theory of existence.” – Mourning Dove [Christine Quintasket] (1888-1936) Okanogan
I feel the truth of this quote deep into my soul. Maybe it is because I am of Native descent and many of my beliefs have just been part of who I am for as far back as I can remember, or maybe it is because I just want to believe it, but either way…………they are words I hold as truths.
All living creatures that inhabit this Earth were put here for a reason. We each have a purpose, no matter what you are or are not physically able to do YOU have a purpose and your purpose it is important to the rest of humanity. You have a mission……….whether or not you have discovered what it is…..your mission is important and so are you. Yes, I realize I just restated what Mourning Dove so brilliantly penned, but sometimes there is just nothing more to add.
I also KNOW with all of my heart that on this Earth was placed a cure for every disease, every illness, every ailment……………a belief that I have had, even before I became ill. We just need to be open to possibilities and miracles that result from nature and not man made creations.
Even though everyone is important, has a mission, and we are to be kind and loving, to radiate truth and kindness, love and respect, that does not mean we need to do it at the expense of our self………….and therefore I leave you with a last quote……..
“I will not let anyone walk through my mind with their dirty feet.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
