In ancient times, The Creator wanted to hide something from humans until they were ready to see. The Creator gathered all the animals and sought their advice. “I want to hide something special 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 highest mountain and keep it there.”
The Creator replied, “One day, the humans will conquer the highest mountain, and find it.” The Salmon said, “Give it to me. I will take it to the deepest ocean and keep it there.”
The Creator replied, “One day, the humans will explore the deepest depths of the ocean, and find it.” The Buffalo said, “Give it to me. I will bury it in the heart of the great plains, and keep it there.”
The Creator replied, “One day, humans will rip open the earth and find it there.” All were stumped until little grandmother Mole, who lived within the heart of Mother Earth and sees with her spiritual eyes, spoke up: “Why don’t we hide it inside them? That is the last place they will look.”
The Creator replied in an instant, “It is done.” -Sicangu Lakota Oyate, An Old Sioux Legend.
