From Birdman^i^, write him to receive the Elder’s Meditation of the Day, a daily newsletter with a meditation.
His meditation of April 12, 2007: “Dissimilar things were fitted together to make something beautiful and whole.” Nippawanock, ARAPAHOE
“Sometimes we look at something close up and it appears to be ugly; but then we drop back and look at it as a whole and it is beautiful. If we look at an insect close up, it may be ugly, but if we drop back and look at the whole insect it becomes beautiful. We can drop back even more and observe what its role and purpose is, and the insect becomes even more beautiful and whole. How are we looking at ourselves? Are we focused on something ugly about ourselves, or are we dropping back and looking at ourselves as a whole? We all have purpose, and we are all beautiful”.
A website named Daily Meditations shows a link to all older meditations, back to April 22, 2005.
