The lesson to invite from the generations and the elders is that we need to be continually and constantly attending the generations, sending them our messages, developing our messages. Sharpen, grow, cultivate.
The subtext is that to do that, we need to engage one another continually, growing new messages and new paths.
The thrust of that subtext: continual reaching out, thinking about, providing assistance. Then the question of what the message is, and how we get it to the 11th generation, takes care of itself.
