This is a beautiful story a Sioux friend told me. 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 realization 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 hide it on the bottom of the ocean." "No. They will go there
too." "The buffalo said, "I will bury it on the great plains."
The Creator said, "They will cut into the skin of the earth and find it even
there." Then 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 them."
And the Creator said, "It is done."
