The Worlds of Great Spirit: The Mineral World

In the story of creation from the Sweet Medicine SunDance Path, the Mineral World was the first to be created as what we know as Grandmother Earth. The minerals are the holders of energy. The saying goes that “within one grain of sand lies the entire Universe.”

It is from the Mineral World that plants are born. Therefore, we might say that what is “held” is the potential for life. The Mineral World teaches us that substance is primarily a container for spirit. The Mineral World is, hence, like our physical body.
