A woman's highest calling is to lead a man to his soul so as to unite him with source - a man's highest calling is to protect woman so she is free to walk the earth unharmed... -Cherokee proverb (via The Great Spirit) artist: Alfredo Rodriguez
-Cherokee Proverb So... I'm not crazy about the gender roles here but it's interesting because I've noticed lately that a number of cultures/religions regard the female as somewhat of a hyperspiritual entity. To me, it's a positive contrast to the "hysterical" archetype. Sensitivity as a powerful source of leading others.... Interesting... But again not a fan of the gender roles.
An old Cherokee told his grandson, "My son, there is a battle between two wolves inside us all. One is Evil. It is anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, inferiority, lies, and ego. The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness, empathy, and truth." The boy thought about it and asked, "Grandfather, which wolf wins?" The old man quietly replied, "The one you feed."
Willma Mankiller, Cherokee---Notice the content of the quotation. We would rather be called by the name of our ancestors...Cherokee, Navajo, Lokota, Apache, Arapaho...Native American and Indian are what others conjured up for us. But if you must, call us Indians.
