Forgive everybody everything
Reconciliation Park in Mankato, Minnesota, best exemplifies a stance on this in current history best: “Forgive everybody everything.” This is inscribed on the benches used in the park where one can view the white buffalo monument as well. According to Dakota legend, the white buffalo’s return heralds a time of peace and prosperity for all people. We, as mentors, strive to manifest that reality every day in healing.
Reconciliation Park commemorates the hanging in 1862 of 38 Dakota by President Lincoln’s order as punishment for stealing food. The Dakotas had stolen food because the U.S. government had broken a treaty with their people. This was the largest mass execution in U.S. history.
It is important for individuals to recognize how humans can wrong each other, but yet how easily we can embrace all pathways to the Divine for forgiveness and healing.
Since we live in this world to make it better, we live our heaven here, creating health and wellness when and where we can. Our faith that healing can happen in the wink of an eye, is a living monument in action today.
Actions speak louder than words.
