American Sioux Indian story
The creator gathered all of creation and said,
“I want to hide something from the humans until they are ready for it. It is the realisation that they create their own reality”.
The Eagle said, “Give it to me, i will take it to the moon”.
The creator said, “No, one day they will go there and find it”.
The salmon said, “I will bury it at the bottom of the ocean”.
The creator said, ” No they will go there too”.
The buffalo said, “I will bury it on the great plains”.
The creator said, ” No, they will cut the skin of the Earth and find it even there”.
Grandmother mole, who lives in the breast of Mother earth, and who has no physical eyes but sees with spiritual eyes said, “Put it inside of them”.
And the creator said, “It is done!”
