The homelessness crisis in the United States is getting a lot worse,
and it is happening at a pace that is absolutely frightening.
Did you realize that more than half a million Americans
are homeless right now?
One out of every four homeless Americans actually has […]

As a society, we have lost that connection to nature and how it interacts with every form of life. We have bought into ego, materialism, and greed at the expense of depleting our resources and subsequently killing that which keeps us alive.
The following video contains quotes from Floyd Red Crow Westerman, Oren Lyons, and Russell Means. These Native American words of wisdom show our link to all life and the future of our planet.
The driving point in this video is the story of the tree. If you cut down one tree, you are also affecting everything that relied upon that tree, such as herbs and plants that grow near specific trees and any animal or bird life that existed in that particular tree. You’re also depleting the regenerative ability for that tree to purify our air. Just one single tree connects so many living things in the forest as they are all related and interplay with one another.
We are all one child spinning through Mother Sky.
~ Shawnee Tribe
Red Crow Westerman stated, “We are all from the Earth and when Earth, water, the atmosphere is corrupted, then it will create it’s own reaction. Mother is reacting.”
The following quote is an excerpt from Last Cry – Native American Prophecies & Tales of the End times:
Aho Mitakyue Oyasin means in Lakota “We are all one” – not just all one with a part, but one with the whole.
We are preoccupied with nonsensical distractions such as sports, television, and most importantly, the feeling that we need to be economic slaves to a broken system of fiat currency. We are literal slaves to the almighty dollar and are willing to work 40-plus hours, 5 days a week until we are no longer able to work anymore. For what? And why?
As the rich get richer, they are creating an even larger disparity between those who have money and those who do not. We pay our bills to things that should be inherently free, such as rent to a landlord (the LORD of your land), food and water. In order to do so, we pay homage to our overlords, who graciously give us employment in exchange for the government raising our children through state sponsored education systems that are nothing more than propaganda machines and mind control. In exchange, our overlords bless us with one or two days off each week and perhaps a week or two of vacation each year.
- How many people are working jobs that they hate for an employer who’s an a*hole?
- Is this living or just existing?
- Is this why we incarnated at this particular place in space and time?
The time has arrived where mankind needs to reclaim what is ours, without overlords telling us what to do and when to do it.
In order for this to happen, we ALL need to come together because once the bottom of the pyramid unites (ALL of us), the rest will collapse.
This will be the beginning of becoming one. The rest is dependent on reconnecting with nature and finding ways to coexist, not only with ourselves but with Mother Earth as well.
It won’t happen by doing nothing. As the Hopi say, “We are the ones we have been waiting for“.
“I, Chief Arvol Looking Horse, Keeper of the Sacred C’anupa brought to the Lakota-Dakota-Nakota Nation by the Sacred White Buffalo Calf Woman nineteen generations ago. Mitakuye Oyasin has a bigger meaning than just our blood relatives. Yes, it’s true; we are all one human race. But the word Mitakuye means relations and Oyasin means more than family, more than a Nation, more than all of humankind. Everything that has a spirit. The interconnectedness of all beings and all things. We are all One”
People are powerful and there is time to become the change you want to see in the world. Peaceful non-compliance will change the current global system. Ideas such as Ubuntu and The Venus Project will transform the world into the proverbial Golden Age, but we are at a tipping point and do not have much time left on the ecological clock.
Like Oren Lyons stated, “Every day that you don’t do what’s right is a day that you’ve lost an option and you’re losing your options every day.”

a lesson is being offered.
May 13 2016
As I and many others have told you again and again, there is only Love! You think you know better because your trust has, at some stage – maybe many stages – been betrayed and you are determined never again to suffer the pain it brought you. But trust can only appear to be betrayed. Love is eternally present, honest, open, extending, sharing, compassionate, forgiving, and healing. It never betrays because to do so would be completely contrary to Its nature. In fear you offer only your bodies to one another – keeping yourselves hidden behind the “masks of acceptability” you have constructed to put on display – but bodies are unreal and cannot be relied upon, ever! You, you with a capital or upper case Y, are Love, and You are not your bodies, You are infinitely more than bodies. Bodies are limiting vehicles or vessels that you have chosen to inhabit, temporarily, in order to experience the unreal state of separation from God, from Source, where you have your endless and eternal existence constantly and without interruption, because what God creates is by its very nature eternal.
Bodies are of the illusion, and within the illusion are essential aspects of the game you are playing there. But, nevertheless, they are unreal, and to use their judgment to guide you always leads to disappointment and suffering. They can and do suffer pain and enjoy pleasure, but both pain and pleasure occur as a result of choices you make as you direct them along your human life paths. They do not cause anything, they just respond to your will, and you are frequently unaware of what you will for them. To you it seems that things just happen to you, but every situation you encounter was set up in advance for the lesson you wished to learn. The fact that you do not recognize this does not change it, but it does make it difficult for you to learn your lessons because in order to learn, you need to recognize that a lesson is being offered.
So we return to the subject we keep on addressing, namely, going within. There are no answers outside you! The games in which you are involved as humans appear to be situations occurring outside of you in which you become involved, sometimes by choice and sometimes by chance. But it is your beliefs and attitudes that bring to you the situations in which you find yourselves involved. If you cling to judgment – the need to be right and see others as wrong – you will attract to yourselves situations that appear to demand your righteous judgment. But you do not have to judge! To judge or to not judge is a choice you make in every moment. Your true nature is Love, and Love never judges. When you operate from your true nature you will see nothing to judge, and without judgment there can be no conflict.
Going within daily is essential, because when you go within to your holy inner sanctuary and open your hearts, Love fills them. And then the felt need to judge falls away. There are none among you who have not, at times, responded lovingly instead of judgmentally in a difficult situation; maybe unthinkingly, and the result has been resolution instead of conflict. Sometimes that has surprised you; but the less you judge, the fewer times you will find yourselves engaged in conflict.
However, your egos want conflict, they live for conflict, because separation is conflict! You may claim that you seek peace, and perhaps you do, but only on your terms! Which means that you have chosen to let your ego direct your thoughts, attitudes, and behaviors; whereupon other egos happily respond and conflict ensues. You each – each ego – eventually retires, hurt and offended, blaming each other for the suffering that you are undergoing, as it seems that the other was the undeserving winner.
Suffering is a direct result of egoic choices, and it seems that the illusion, the state of existence humans experience, demands conflict. And, in a way, it does, because to be human is to have chosen to experience separation. And many humans see human existence as real and the spiritual realms as unreal, mythical realms that the weak choose to believe in because they are not strong enough to cope with reality.
Your egos have done a very good job of turning things upside down by making the unreal real, and by rejecting Reality. Within the worldly illusion, where humanity appears to dwell, anything that is not physical, that does not have form, is judged as non-existent, illusory, unreal. Then you attempt to resolve issues with egoic reason and logic, judging what disagrees with your belief systems, your cultural and religious persuasions, as wrong and in need of correction, by force if necessary. Judgment can never lead to peace, because judgment is non-acceptance of another, whose views and opinions are not really so different from your own, because they, like you, have an egoic need to make others wrong and prove themselves right. But all are One! And this human way of dealing with issues is, without doubt, utterly insane. There is no right and wrong, there is just difference.
To awaken, as humanity is doing, is to recognize that the differences between families, tribes, nations, cultures, and political or religious beliefs are not reasons to make others wrong, but, instead, are opportunities to honor the differences between the various members of God’s Holy Family. God’s beloved children were created perfect, because God is infinite perfection, and therefore they remain perfect because what God creates is eternally unchanging.
Acceptance is an essential aspect of humanity’s awakening process, but it has to be unconditional, and because so many of you struggle with your own self-acceptance, it is very difficult for you to even think of accepting others unconditionally. You are forever noting to yourselves the aspects of others that you find most unacceptable, and those aspects are the ones that you deny most ferociously in yourselves. You are all mirrors to one another, and what you see and is reflected back most strongly by another is what you most admire or what you most despise in yourselves. When you fall in love, the other is reflecting back to you your most admirable traits, and when you strongly dislike someone, they are frequently reflecting back what you judge to be your most unacceptable traits which you have buried far beneath your level of conscious awareness.
Many are now finding that all this buried “stuff” is arising, seemingly unbidden, into their conscious awareness – what psychology refers to as the shadow side of a person. For those who have constructed for themselves a very strong and effective mask to present to themselves, and to the world, it can be very shocking to have such unacceptable thoughts and desires arising, thoughts and desires that they judge as totally unacceptable.
Relax, you are not alone, everyone has a shadow side. Just acknowledge those horrific ideas and desires and allow them to flow through you without engaging with them. Part of your fear about them is because you think that if they are there, you might act on them. Acting on them only occurs when they are totally repressed by someone who has been terribly abused. They are generally just emotional defensive responses provided by your egos as a result of perceived unfair treatment or attacks. They are truly quite a normal aspect of being human, but, as children, you found that to express such ideas was totally forbidden and resulted in you being shamed or silenced. Consequently, needing a safe environment in order to survive, you buried them.
As you move through the awakening process, all this hidden “stuff” has to be acknowledged and released. As you do this, it becomes apparent that this “stuff” is not you. You are each a holy and unchanging child of God, One with Him eternally, since the moment of your creation, and this “stuff” is just unreal dream-stuff passing through and dissolving, unless you choose to hold on to it. Just let it go and also any thoughts, worries, or anxieties that are attached to it. This clears your mind, making space for your true nature, Love, to blossom, as it most surely will.
