Decisions - Looking To The Future - By Sakoieta'
We were taught that when we make decisions our thoughts and decisions should always be based on several things. What we decide must not have only short term implications but must also be based in long term thinking. We need to consider how our decisions will affect us, our family, our clan, our community, our nation, the natural world and the coming faces of those yet unborn. With that type of basis for decision making we were taught to also consider the things of the past. We were to consider decisions of the past that had brought us to where we are today and how those decisions had also had an affect on us, our family, our clan, our community, our nation, the natural world and those children of yesteryear who are no longer here. It was believed that by focusing our thoughts in this manner, that when we make decisions, our decisions would be the best not only for now but also for the future.
