The “Faithkeeper” . . . this is our role now.


In the Native American tradition one member of the tribe
assumes the role of “Faithkeeper.”
This person’s role is to remain at peace, centered in spiritual vision
no matter what events befall the tribe.
Even if everyone else in the tribe slips into pain, fear or dissension,
the Faithkeeper is the one person the tribe can rely on as a lifeline to the Presence.
This is our role now.”

  1. LOVE THIS. And encourages me. My immediate family is going through some issues at the moment. I meditate a lot and try to be mindful but some personalities are more difficult than others. I try to be that beacon of peace, but when I forget to be mindful, I slip into a judgmental attitude. I think tweaking my approach as a “faithkeeper” is awesome and valid and I’ll keep that in mind today. :)
