So much useless suffering! Diseases, wars, discord among family members, lack of love, abuse, violence, famine, racism, the list is endless. Most of this suffering could be avoided and has been created because Men have lost their connection to the earth. Those who receive the bounty of the land and who can nourish their families with what they grow in their gardens have no need for the actions that create suffering for others. Their families are together all the time and nature gives them the activities that allow for maximum healthy development of body, heart and mind. Also any useless suffering is an indication that we are not following Great Spirit original instructions.
