When the Creator decides to make a being, Mother Earth & Water are combined to make the body. Creator has a purpose for each life. All beings are blessed with gifts to accomplish our mission in life.
Spirit moves with breath. Spirit is energy. Creator gives us part of it's Spirit when we take our first breath in this life. That Spirit enters us through the soft part of our skulls (the Puwagut), and lives in our heart till we take our last breath.
Hopefully we use the gifts Creator gave us to accomplish good, and make a difference in this life. When our time comes, we'll take our last breath, and that Spirit will leave the body the way it came in to return to Creator's Circle of Life
Becuase we are made of water and Mother Earth; we must be like water. Nothing can stop it, it can be held for a while, but will run over, under, or around to it's destination. All bodies return to Mother Earth. That's why Native People say, "All Our Relations." We are all the same.
