For some indigenous people, a circle represents "no beginning or no end." They believe that everything has a circle of life and keeps coming back in a circular movement. The spiritual belief is to maintain harmonious relationships with oneself, spirits, nature, humans, land, creatures, weather, planets, and stars. They belief that the circle of life comes back and sometimes in different forms, and believe that they must have good relationships with everything in the universe. Indigenous groups believe a Higher Spirit created the cosmos and will express anger or happiness through weather patterns. If they do not build a good relationship with everything in the universe, they will experience anger in the weather patterns and suffer. Indigenous people also believe that the souls of ancestors are passed through generations through birth. They teach the importance of good relationships with everything by telling stories and singing songs which are passed through generations. When these stories are taught, the souls of ancestors are present. They also believe that spirits are invisible forces which may be present at all times. They believe that the earth is their Mother and her body which should be treated with respect and love. This shows how one fits in the universe.

The basic missing factor is, that we are each aware, immortal, non-material Spirits or beings and we forgot this truth. Anything after this point is only a way of expressing what we each sense to be true. Unfortunately, the ultimate form of amnesia...
