10 Sacred Tribal Teachings to Live By

Like many of the teachings that come from indigenous culture, the 10 virtues below are intended as a road map for living a more balanced and connected life.  

The beauty of these ancient pillars of existence is that they always remain relevant, regardless of how evolved or learned we think we've become. 
10 Sacred Tribal Teachings To Live By
1) The Earth is our Mother, care for her.
2) Honor your ancestors through your actions.
3) Open your heart and soul to the Great Spirit.
4) All life is sacred; treat all beings with respect.
5) Take from the Earth what is needed and nothing more.
6) Put the good of all before your own interests.
7) Give constant thanks for each new day.
8) Speak the truth; but only of good in others.
9) Follow the rhythms of nature; rise and retire with the sun.
10) Enjoy life's journey, but leave no tracks.
They seem so simple right? But somehow these core concepts are easy to forget or take for granted when life gets challenging. 

Today, the one that hits me is #8. In our current times, it has become increasing difficult to not speak out against certain people. In fact, it has come to the point where if one doesn't speak out, it is as if we are letting things slide or becoming complacent.

Sometimes a negative truth about someone is for the overall good of everyone and is in alignment with sacred teaching #4.

Balance is an ebb and flow, not a constant homeostasis. Recognize that ebbs are just as important as the flow, and a necessity for all growth.
