The old people were masters at maintaining a respectful relationship with their environments.  They remind me that we have to experience both abundance and scarcity to learn the skills of conservation.  Balance is learning to live without fear of one or the other, but to understand the true value of enough.

This is part of a series of mindfulness prompts that are based in Métis teachings. Each weekly post has an image specifically designed to fit the lock-screen on your phone. The idea is that you can make mindfulness easy, effective and beautiful all at the same time. Placing each new image on your lock screen serves to keep it in the front of your mind while the week allows you enough time to lean into the learning.
