The Ten Indian Commandments

In this edition of Remembering Your Spirit, I thought I would share ten very simple commandments based on the American Red Indians proverbs. I think it sums up pretty much everything about how to live a good life.

  1. Remain close to the Great Spirit.
  2. Show great respect for your fellow beings.
  3. Give assistance and kindness wherever needed.
  4. Be truthful and honest at all times.
  5. Do what you know to be right.
  6. Look after the well being of the mind and body.
  7. Treat the earth and all that dwell thereon with respect.
  8. Take full responsibility for your actions.
  9. Dedicate a share of your efforts to the greater good.
  10. Work together for the benefit of all mankind.
