We create our own reality: A Sioux Legend

"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', the Creator said, 'They will go there too.'

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

Then Grandmother Mole, who lives 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.'

Imagine how old a tribe would have to be, or at least how many generations must have gone before with accrued wisdom constantly being handed down, to create a soulful wisdom teaching like this, and especially to know the heart, mind and soul of a mole.

There is perhaps nothing that grabs the attention of all my heartstrings more than a beautiful, simple legend featuring a being that is often cast off by. This one is, as SG says, truly a classic<3
What's more, I feel it coming out in the dreams and stories emerging over the last few months + years so it has a very personal meaning too:-D
