In ancient times, The Creator wanted to hide something from humans until they were ready to see.
The Creator gathered all the animals and sought their advice.
“I want to hide something special from the humans until they are ready for it, it is the realization that they create their own reality.”
The Eagle said, “Give it to me. I will take it to the highest mountain and keep it there.”
The Creator replied, “One day, the humans will conquer the highest mountain, and find it.”
The Salmon said, “Give it to me. I will take it to the deepest ocean and keep it there.”
The Creator replied, “One day, the humans will explore the deepest depths of the ocean, and find it.”
The Buffalo said, “Give it to me. I will bury it in the heart of the great plains, and keep it there.”
The Creator replied, “One day, humans will rip open the earth and find it there.”
All were stumped until little grandmother Mole, who lived within the heart of Mother Earth and sees with her spiritual eyes, spoke up:
“Why don’t we hide it inside them? That is the last place they will look.”
The Creator replied in an instant, “It is done.”

Within each of us is a great spirit’s gift. When we meditate, our spirit connects with our heart and the infinite oneness of all that is. The gift is knowing gratitude. It is up to us to remember that we have the power to create our own reality by what we choose to feel within our own heart. When we spread out wings and let go of all that binds us and give thanks for the many blessings of today, we are all transformed and see with the eyes of our spirit.
We are more than a body…we are spirit! You have the power to create your own destiny.
