“I am a big man. See all the shells? They are very valuable in our culture. I could have trunks of them……but then I wouldn’t be a big man. A big man gives away what he has and shares with others. ” –New Guinea Elder
“From Native Wisdom for White Minds” by Anne Wilson Schaef
There are many sayings in this book that have relevance to our daily lives, it is written to provide one daily reflection each day of the year.
I have met many people in our travels that have shown the importance of sharing, wether it is material, information, their time or spirituality it has shown special qualities of these individuals and I cherish them all.
