"In the wisdom tradition of the Lakota it is said that there are four gifts of character, four qualities given to humans by Wakan Tanka, the Great Mystery.
There are many mysteries associated with each of these qualities, and to grow and blend them is the task of the sacred path, the "red road", the "beauty way," " the middle pillar", the path of the "true human being."
It is also said that each of us is born with ONE of these gifts in full measure. That gift of character is our nature and our greatest power, provided that we come to "know" ourselves and to express it... which is no easy task... and for that we must seek our vision in the mirrors of relationship, to witness our true reflection, both light and shadow.
The other three gifts come harder to us, and it is our task to develop them, using as our guide the one that comes most naturally. Redtail Healing Arts
