Zaagi'idiwin, or Mutual Love, is the second Teaching. To feel true zaagi'idiwin is to know and love Gichi-manidoo (the Great Mystery) because the very breath of Gichi-manidoo is considered the giver of human life. It is through love of oneself that we express our love for the Great Mystery of Life. Migizi, the Bald Eagle, represents the Teaching of love because he flies high above the earth and is therefore closer to the Great Mystery than any other creature. Love is the most elusive of all virtues and no other creature is so elusive as this mighty spirit-bird, and love has the same light and airy nature as his feathers.
