From the Lakota Sioux Sweat Lodge

Share |
Endurance, cleanliness,
strength, purity
Will keep our lives straight
Our actions only for a good
purpose.
Our words will be truth.
Only honesty shall come from our interaction
With all things.


(From the Lakota Sioux Sweat Lodge ceremony entry in Prayers for Healing: 365 Blessings, Poems, & Meditations)
