What is The Red Road of Spirituality? part 3

To walk the Red Road is to know you stand on equal ground

with all living things. It is to know that because you were born human,

it gives you superiority over nothing. It is to know that every creation

carries a Spirit, and the river knows more than you do,

the mountains know more than you do,

the stone people know more than you do,

the trees know more than you do, the wind is wiser than you are,

and animal people carry wisdom. You can learn from every one

of them, because they have something you don’t.

They are void of evil thoughts. They wish vengence on no one,

they seek justice.

My reaction to this third verse of the poem:

Humans tend to assume that we are superior to all other life forms.

We are not superior, just different. In many ways we are  less than

they are and we can learn from the animals, they elements and

All-That-Is. We need to honor thier wisdom.
