Explosions in the Sky & Words of Wisdom


Joe Rogan &

Explosions in the Sky 

 

Chief Tecumseh's Words of Wisdom

So live your life 
that the fear of death can never enter your heart.
Trouble no one about their religion;
respect others in their view, and demand that they respect yours.
Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life.

Seek to make your life long 
and its purpose in the service of your people.
Prepare a noble death song for the day 
when you go over the great divide.
Always give a word or a sign of salute 
when meeting or passing a friend,
even a stranger, when in a lonely place.
Show respect to all people and grovel to none.

When you arise in the morning 
give thanks for the food and for the joy of living.
If you see no reason for giving thanks, 
the fault lies only in yourself.

Abuse no one and no thing, 
for abuse turns the wise ones to fools
and robs the spirit of its vision.

When it comes your time to die, 
be not like those whose hearts are filled
with the fear of death, 
so that when their time comes they weep
and pray for a little more time 
to live their lives over again in a different way.
Sing your death song and die like a hero going home.
