To understand your role in the world and the important lessons that are available, these are the things that give value to this life. A belief is that you inherit a duty, a responsibility. So we are not here to benefit, we are here to work hard so that the future, for all, can enjoy that benefit. This philosophy intensifies the bond of community, promotes stability, and provides concrete values. All decisions are made not for today but for SEVEN GENERATIONS in the future so that they can enjoy what we have today. We are talking about the philosophy of the Haudenosaunee.
This beautiful philosophy influenced the founders of the American Constitution and the Bill of Rights. In this philosophy we honor the basic principles amongst the Haudenosaunee which are; THINKING COLLECTIVELY and taking A CONSENSUS in decision making, considering all points of view. There is a SHARING OF LABOR and the benefits of SHARING that labor. There is a strong sense of self without being EGOISTIC. EVERYONE IS EQUAL. Everyone has a GIFT or TALENT from the CREATOR that can benefit society.
The philosophy encompasses traits such as; BE GENEROUS, BE THANKFUL, TO HONOR OTHERS, TO SHARE, BE HONEST, BE RESPECTFUL and TO LIVE IN HARMONY WITH OTHERS AND NATURE. These qualities are the basics for being a decent HUMAN-Being.
We are seeing more and more people today, adopting this wonderful philosophy of the Haudenosaunee. MAKE OTHERS SMILE AND RESPECT YOU BY ADOPTING THESE VALUES. THEN ENJOY THE RESULTS.
PLEASE TAKE CARE, STAY WELL AND BE HEALTHY
