I believe that if one has committed a bad deed then they should be punished for it and people who have done good deeds will be rewarded.

From my perspective, all four aspects in the Medicine wheel integrate together to create a framework to reflect on how the person I have become, in terms of how I think, the reasoning behind my logic and how my past experiences has shaped me to the person I am today.
