Gathering Minds

A Sioux Story

The Creator gathered all of creation and said, "I want to hide something 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 moon". The Creator said, "No. One day they will go there and find it".

The salmon said, "I will hide it on the bottom of the ocean". "No. They will go there, too".

The buffalo said, "I will bury it on the great plains". "They will cut into the skin of the earth and find it even there".

Then Grandmother Mole, who lived in the breast of Mother Earth, and who has no physical eyes but sees with spiritual eyes, said, "Put it inside them".

And the Creator said, "It is done".
