Spiritual Balance

MJS NativeAmericanSnow.jpg

It was our belief that the love of possessions is a weakness to be overcome.

Its appeal is to the material part, and if allowed its way, it will in time disturb

one’s spiritual balance. Therefore, children must learn early the beauty of generosity.

They are taught to give what they prize most, that they may taste the happiness of giving.

If a child is inclined to be grasping, or to cling to any of his or her little possessions,

legends are related about the contempt and disgrace falling upon the ungenerous

and mean person. The Indians in their simplicity literally give away all that they have

to relatives, to guests of other tribes or clans, but above all to the poor and the aged,

from whom they can hope for no return.
