consider the interrelatedness of everything in the cosmos as it is expressed in many indigenous religions. How do you think the importance of these relationships developed? What spiritual purpose do you think they serve for indigenous peoples?
You'll be writing a hefty book!! Please post your ideas in outline form, and someone here will comment for you.
I believe the relationships developed through the spiritual elders, who lived among each generation. They developed with the experience gained, discovering that harmony could bring them together. The relationships developed in people experiencing different parts of life and using the observations to reach a conclusion. The conclusions that they formed provided a spiritual purpose by explaining your everyday situation with a larger concept. Many religions have different beliefs but they share the same goals.
