Old Hawk, “Stay on your path” (The wisdom of an old Indian)

“Life has two faces, and the one is not less real than the other.
If everything would always stay the same, there would be no diversity, no tension and no balance. There would be no black as a contrast to the white, no sundown, to end the day, which started with the sunrise, and no warmth, to chase away the coldness. That, which takes care of the balance in the journey of your life, brings also trouble. But at the end it also holds a present, which we often do not see.”
(Old Hawk, Sicangu Lakota)
