Common Ground

You may have noticed I have been posting Native American sayings and such recently. There is a lot of common ground between Taoism and Native American spiritual beliefs and philosophy. There is no ‘one’ Native American philosophy but many different tribes had similar beliefs and these beliefs were brothers of many Taoist beliefs. Both Native American and Taoist beliefs emphasized harmony among man and nature for one thing. Obviously there are differences and I won’t go into a long dissertation about it all, but if you do some research, you will find strikingly similar ideas.

The hoot of the owl tells us that we do not know what will come with the next sunrise. We may have plenty of buffalo to hunt or we may come face to face with a grizzly. It is not certain. May the tracks we make tomorrow be blessed and our path be one that is in accordance with the universe. I lay me down tonight under a moon that gives no answers as to my destiny.
