The Creator gave us all the Red Road and on this Red Road we are required to think and act in a spiritual way.  To make sure I conduct myself according to the Red Road, I must make sure I develop my self discipline.  Self control works best when we pray for the courage and power to do the will of the Great Spirit.  We are here on the earth to do the will of the Great Spirit.  Sometimes, we must battle ourselves to do this.
