WISDOM. The Beaver
Wisdom is the ability to make decisions based on personal knowledge and experience.
Wisdom is defined as:
1. Accumulated philosophic or scientific learning – KNOWLEDGE
2. Ability to discern inner qualities and relationships – INSIGHT
3. Good sense – JUDGMENT
4. A wise attitude, belief, or course of action
The Beaver represents WISDOM because it utilizes its gifts in ways that promote wellness to itself and its family.
The Creator gave the Beaver large teeth and the knowledge of how to build. This has enabled the Beaver to positively impact its environment and create a more sustainable world. The same can be said for human beings. One's spirit will grow weak if it is not fulfilling its use. When used properly however, these gifts contribute to the development of a peaceful and healthy community.
The challenge for us today is to find out what our gifts are and to use them for the betterment of the community. We must learn, know and utilize these special gifts for the betterment of all creatures of Mother Earth.
I asked for strength… and I was given difficulties to make me strong.
I asked for wisdom… and I was given problems to solve.
I asked for prosperity… and I was given a brain and brawn to work.
I asked for courage… and I was given obstacles to overcome.
I asked for love… and I was given troubled people to help.
I asked for favours… and I was given opportunities.
I received nothing I wanted… but, I received everything I needed.
Live life without fear, confront all obstacles and know that you can overcome them.
