“The definition of a spiritual person is someone who makes 30–50 mistakes each day and talks to the Creator after each one to see what to do next time.”

“Traditional Native peoples, on the other hand, have been trained to Listen. They place so much importance on Listening that tribal groups have developed the talking circle ceremony in order to share the inner wisdom that comes from Listening. The primary purpose of the talking circle ceremony is to Listen to people’s innermost feelings about an issue. Each participant in the talking circle is a reflection of Spirit, so the words spoken in the circle are considered sacred and holy.”

“A native friend of mine writes: It can be hard to tell true Guidance from your own ego in disguise. True Guidance is subtle and can be overshadowed by our own wishful thinking. So Guidance is most trustworthy when what it tells you is something you don’t want to do, or at least something you would never have thought of yourself. Guidance is most questionable when it matches what you do want to do.”
