LEARN THE MEANING OF HOLLOW BONES
"When we become hollow bones there is no limit to what the Higher Powers can do in and through us in spiritual things."
-- Frank Fools Crow, LAKOTA
If we want to be of maximum use to the Creator, we must ready ourselves to do so. If we are to become a channel for His purposes, we must prepare ourselves to do so. If we have resentment, fear, selfishness, or anger, we are not hollow bones. We must be rid of these things. We must change ourselves. We must ask for forgiveness for ourselves and forgive our brothers and sisters. We must keep our insides clean. We cannot use our power in a good way when we have blockages such as hate, judgment, and envy. When we are free of these things the Higher Powers can use us beyond our wildest imagination. Then we can really help ourselves and help our people. Only when we are hollow bones can we have an effect on the world.
I have been lucky enough to spend periods of time consistently with Native Americans and this has been a great gift to me. The concepts are shown to you and it is up to you to listen and learn. Sacrifice for others, Gratitude for what comes your way dominate their thinking. There is also a concept of Social Responsibility which the Non Indians have forgotten.
While many people show an interest in changing themselves or wanting to think in a different fashion, very few are willing to take the steps to do so. Non Indians speak with forked tongue, is another Indian saying and I know its meaning each and every time I meet new people, who seem to hide an agenda behind their actions. Behaviour in a pure form towards other people without a hidden agenda is an absolute necessity. American Indians always say: Don't try to behave in such a fashion that you show enough interest to extract something of the other person.
Achieving changes within your self is necessary to wash away some of the dirt accumulated by subscribing to the society’s rules to “succeed” in it. You cannot achieve that change without compassion. Look at the various defects of an ordinary mind, which needs to be cleared for the Personality Complex to be CLEAR.. Dr Yogendra of the Yoga Insitute in Bombay, the oldest established Yoga Institution, would tabulate it and discuss it under:
Fear of Change or Loss
Don't you get the feeling that Compassion can help you with each of these defects of the Personality Complex.
No one can teach you short cuts to become Happy but can aid you along the well known paths to clear the defects in your ways of thinking. . For good results you need Perseverance and Self Study .
So put the other person first, Sacrifice
Be Grateful for the good things that are in your life, Don't be greedy and be devious to obtain what you want
Try to learn the meaning of HOLLOW BONE and practice and persevere and be patient , and try to become a HOLLOW BONE.
