Native American Code of Ethics!

1. Rise with the sun to pray. Pray alone. Pray often. The Great Spirit will listen, if you only speak.

2. Be tolerant of those who are lost on their path. Ignorance, conceit,
anger, jealousy and greed stem from a lost soul. Pray that they will find guidance.

3. Search for yourself, by yourself. Do not allow others to make your path for you. It is your road, and yours alone. Others may walk it with you, but no one can walk it for you.

4. Treat the guests in your home with much consideration. Serve them the best food, give them the best bed and treat them with
respect and honor.

5. Do not take what is not yours whether from a person, a community, the wilderness or from a culture. It was not earned nor given. It is not yours.

6. Respect all things that are placed upon this earth - whether it be people or plants.

7. Honor other people's thoughts, wishes and words. Never interrupt another or mock or rudely mimic them. Allow each person the right to personal expression.

8. Never speak of others in a bad way. The negative energy that you put out into the universe will multiply when it returns to you.

9. All persons make mistakes. And all mistakes can be forgiven.

10. Bad thoughts cause illness of the mind, body and spirit. Practice optimism.

11. Nature is not FOR us, it is a PART of us. They are part of your worldly family.

12. Children are the seeds of our future. Plant love in their hearts and water them with wisdom and life's lessons. When they are grown,give them space to grow.

13. Avoid hurting the hearts of others. The poison of your pain will return to you.

14. Be truthful at all times. Honesty is the test of ones will within this

15. Keep yourself balanced. Your Mental self, Spiritual self,Emotional self, and Physical self - all need to be strong, pure andhealthy. Work out the body to strengthen the mind. Grow rich in spirit to cure emotional ails.

16. Make conscious decisions as to who you will be and how you will react. Be responsible for your own actions.

17. Respect the privacy and personal space of others. Do not touch the personal property of others - especially sacred and
religious objects. This is forbidden.

18. Be true to yourself first. You cannot nurture and help others if you cannot nurture and help yourself first.

19. Respect others religious beliefs. Do not force your belief on others.

20. Share your good fortune with others. Participate in charity.

What I know about Ascension

There are no dates and days, months or years when any given project will culminate. There are only energies in sufficient frequency to bring forth a change in focus. Many years ago Archangel Michael (and many others) told us, don't look to dates, but watch the events and feel the energies, for in the energies are the foretellers of things to come. The most Probable Possibilites.

Ascension is a process NOT an event. And I will tell you in the process of ascension, among those of us on the leading edge of thought, there are ones at this moment in many different phases and levels of that process.

Some are already in the higher vibration all of the time, whether they appear to be physically present on the earth or not. There are those who continually move between the higher realms and the earth energies to interact in the process of awakening. Some of us who are drawn to spend more and more time in higher frequency will do so, and yet we may continue to return to the lesser frequency of the earth in change, to point the willing to a new focus.

If you turn 90 degrees in any direction, and place your focus there, you will indeed understand a new role that you will choose to assume. The incremental steps that we each will take to serve the best and highest interest of all in the Divine Plan, are there before us. However they appear before you, follow your heart and your inner urgings. . .if it seems too far out there, too crazy, follow it anyway. You will know. Listen to the voice within.

In my experience, it is highly likely that no one is going to knock on your door and tell you it is time to go. One of the things that you will find is that the desire to stay in higher places is overwhelming. Also know that if that is the best place that you can serve the greatest good you may allow yourself to stay there. You will not feel that tug of being drawn to go, yet feeling you should stay on the earth plane. It will be a very clear feeling.

You may indeed find that you are perfectly in tune with either frequency. . .to stay will be wonderful, a feeling of resting in the arms of total love. . . to travel back to the earth frequency will feel just as wonderful, infused with a beautiful feeling of being wrapped in a love beyond any yet known on this planet. There is no pulling or feeling of concern about which is the "right" choice. . .it is either choice is just as "right" and it is more of "where can I do the most good in this now moment." It is not a long term choice, but an in the moment choice.

If those on the earth are calling forth for you, it will not be a surprise that you will be just fine with going back to work and share with them. Each time you bring back a newly renewed version of you. . .a calm and peace that is infused with certainty. There is joy in that. And it is only a "for this moment" decision.

The distaste that some of us have felt at being on the earth in its current state of disarray, evaporates. There is a clearer picture to be had and your journeys to higher vibrational experiences will wipe the remnants of the veils from your eyes. As our physical bodies can tolerate the upgrades, we will hold more and more of the divine God/Goddess energy and accomplish all the miraculous we ever wanted to command when it serves a divine purpose.

There is no need to concern yourself how it looks, or if you will seem to appear visible or invisible or dead to the physical or no different at all. And it makes no difference "when" . . .for it is NOW. It is always Now. It will appear exactly how it appears to those viewing the experience and you will not care one bit what that is, or when that is.

Your certainty will become very certain. The feelings of uncertainty will evaporate. You will not consciously know everything, for within you there is a connection to all that you need to know in any moment you need it. It is the moment of complete trust. All will be given you as you trust that it will.

I bring this back from my journey last night and I share it with you in love and encouragement. No two journeys look exactly alike. Yours will unfold for you in the most perfect way that matches your divine intent and beautiful individuality.

I have no doubt many of you know all of this already. . .just allow this as validation and encouragement.

One with you In Love

Quado Daily Portion

“Define success and prosperity on your own terms”

Do not be a victim of the society in which you live. You need to be aware of it and its rules, so that you can prosper within it, but you also need to define success and prosperity on your own terms.

You are bombarded by messages and images which are aimed at making you dissatisfied with yourself. Their purpose is to compel you to spend money or hand over allegiance. Their promises of wealth and power are designed to increase the wealth and power of other people, not you.

Today, be aware of this. When you feel that longing and dissatisfaction, look at what is causing it. Is it coming from your core of peace and rightness? No, it is coming from television and magazines and is calculated to make you feel dissatisfied, longing to be other than what you are, desiring to lose weight, have plastic surgery, buy expensive clothing, a grand house and car. It is calculated to make you think that you are unworthy unless you have achieved these status symbols of success.

It is your job to define prosperity on your own terms. It is your job to see these images for what they are, and build a life which is based on love, compassion and respect, both for yourself and for others. It is your job to nurture your spiritual foundation and build a peaceful center within, a center which will withstand the setbacks and obstacles which are a natural part of life and growth, making you stronger as you meet each challenge.

Find out what is truly important to you, what feeds your deepest core, what builds you up inside, and follow this, do this, no matter what anyone else says, no matter what society directs. You are fully responsible for your life and you can make it beautiful and fulfilling, your interior world a safe harbor you turn to and your outer world a loving gift.

Here is a little prayer for today

Today, I live from the inside out, nurturing my inner core, filling myself with peace.

Today I am delighted to be who I am, exactly as I am. I know that I am exactly who I should be, standing exactly where I should stand. And I see the path stretching ahead sparkling with possibility and opportunity.

I am at peace with all that I have been and done, am deeply centered in who I am right now and look forward with peace to the next step I will take.

I am so glad to be me and living my life, that I give thanks, deep thanks, for each breath I take.

I am beauty and perfection just as I am. I am at peace. I am.

If you missed any Quado messages from the last week, you will find them on . You will also find there powerful meditations and a Quado Healing Crystal, which will help you feel the connection to Quado and these words.

I wish that you may prosper in all ways.

Love & peace,

White Buffalo Calf Woman
The Simple Truth
August 2, 2005

The open plains and the campfires still exist, but not as much as yesterday. The clean water and the abundance of fish still exist, but not as much as yesterday. The Buffalo still walk the earth, but not as much as yesterday. And Humans still exist, but not as much as yesterday.

The warmth of the fire, the feel of the clean air, the laughter shared with friends are all simple things. And simple things are fast disappearing. The evolution of hearts and minds is fast, and where fast is, some confusion may exist. As the old ways of truth, inner truth, become stomped on by the progression of "technology," humans have lost their way. Most walk now in the deep woods of darkness and despair, with no clear patch of sky showing through the denseness of the tall trees of technology.

The roots of technology had their beginning when one man decided that he knew better- better than everyone else and better than himself.

I come today to remind all of the simple things, the basic truths and the love that is present within everyone. There is a concept that has arisen in the human mind that more and more, means more and more, which leads to more and more, and all that is good. But more and more of what? More ways to plug in the toaster, more ways to clean your clothes, more ways to add 2+2, do not add up to happiness. They simply distract you from yourself, where all the true wealth lives. Yes these things add outer luxuries and comforts to your life, and even some excitement at times.

But the glamour and the pretty lights do not comfort you in times of distress of crisis. They are empty and shallow and have no real meaning. They bring you more and more of that all the time. You are surrounded always in your outer world by more and more, better, newer and improved. Which means that that which was and is created by the human mind, is never enough, is never good enough...correct? And apparently never will be, so the human mind wants to keep creating more and more to be seemingly better and better.

So why do you want to engage with energies or creations that in truth are constantly less than or flawed or outdated the minute you use them one time? I will tell you why so that you may understand. As the human mind has been so engaged with the outer world, and moved away from the inner truth, your greatness and beauty has been forgotten. Your feeling of self, in the eyes of God, whatever God you embrace, is that you are always lacking. And the God that you feel is looking upon you this way is the God that is outside of yourself. It is easier to believe that you have to improve than to know that you already have all the answers. The search seems to be the purpose of life, and without the search, what else is there?

That illusion or sense of reality is, because you are living in a physical body and the third dimension. This dimension is so basic, that you forget the vastness of your true self. You poured your essence into a container and because you felt cramped, you decided that in order to be comfortable in it, you would have to discard the excess, or what you felt would not fit at all, and would most likely just make you feel even more uncomfortable. That is the illusion created by the physical world.

The purpose of life in this current dimension is not to learn anything, or endure lessons or teachings. It is to live all of yourself, love all of yourself, remember all of yourself, and sit by the fire with your friends as you share love.

You poured your essence into a container that you created, to have the experience of feeling contained, in order to realize that you never were contained at all. In this remembering, you, as God, are expanding and creating.

You, as the God within, know that you are perfect and all is well. This is the simple truth that is so simple. In this knowing and living, there is no need for more and more, for ALL is always there.

The circle, the teachings, the truth, is returning. Slowly but steadily within the awareness of all, new and improved on every level of life is being replaced. The buried treasure is being dusted off, the wisdom and connection with your true heritage is returning to life. That which was once regarded as excess or not needed is being re-membered as that which is vital.

The stars, your family, your essence, all revolve within your heart just as the earth revolves around the sun. The sacred ways of the old ones, the ancients, were remembered directly from the wisdom of the stars, for they survived and lived in unison with nature and Gods world. Not mans world. These ancient ones have not left this earth. They live on AS all of you, WITHIN all of you. Harmony and Peace will once more be the outer circle encompassing all, as everyone finds their seat in the circle around the sacred f ire of truth.

As everyone wears their robes of wisdom all will be listened to and all will be respected.

Drop the outer fabrics and coverings of all the distractions that hide the simple truth with lights and colors that entice and delight the outer senses. Turn the other way and follow your heart. Walk as an elder upon this earth, and know that there is nothing else to know or learn from anyone.

Be quiet, be in peace and with this, you are creating and living the energy of the stars. The distractions of this world are what is being shaken off by the mother as she groans and heaves, as the cloud people cry, and the wind blows and the fire raises itself high. All that is, is with you, helping.

Listen to the winged ones, the insects and the four legged. Learn from the ones that swim in the seas and the waters, for they have never been distracted. They can guide you if you simply pay attention.

Come and sit with me by the fire and feel yourself being comfortable and true. It is your nature. Let yourself feel all of yourself. In your inner vision, what animal or living being of nature comes to sit with you in this moment? Embrace this gift to your heart.
