My thanks to Bamboo-wate, who has shared the following concerning Standing Rock:
This is an excellent piece by Kent Nerburn, author of Neither Wolf Nor Dog:
“To experience this land is to understand on a fundamental and visceral level that the confrontation taking place here at the edge of the Missouri is more than a struggle between protesters and authorities; more even than test of limits of tribal sovereignty or even claims of violations of sacred land. This is a struggle for the very health of the planet itself.
It is a wager between the belief that technology, in the service of progress, will allow us to adapt and adjust and change the earth to fit our human needs, and the belief that the earth has immutable truths that we cannot violate without irreparable damage. It is a wager we cannot afford to get wrong.
An elder once said to me, “You think you can fix everything, change everything. But there will come a day when things cannot be fixed. And, you know what, it will be a day just like today.”
The committed gathering of people on the banks of the Mne Sose understand this. They know, like the old man in Fort Yates, that the Missouri is the blood in the veins of this earth, and that if it becomes polluted by toxins, whether intentionally or otherwise, all the earth and the life upon it fed by those waters is in peril.
. . .
They are not there for themselves. They are there for our children and our children’s children. They are the voice for the seventh generation, if there is to be a seventh generation. And they are being led by the very people whose voices have too long been silenced, the people who have always understood that the earth is alive and that spirit is present in all of creation — the people of Native America.
. . .
Those of us sitting comfortably in our homes are called upon at this moment to decide if we will stand with them, or if we will let this fade into the background while we continue to live as if the earth is infinite in her patience and capabilities. We are asked to choose, by our words and actions, whether we believe that the earth is here for our benefit, and technology and ingenuity can always save us from our mistakes, or if we believe that we are stewards of this fragile planet and must approach her with humility and respect.
I’ve gone back in my files to share this early piece from Bamboo called Mother Earth Singing.
. . . and he also shares the following:
Today is a day for perhaps special prayers; I hope that one of them is for all the souls—at Standing Rock—who are Witnessing for all of us.
This prayer is a gift from the Haudenosaunee People (The Iroquois Nation) for you to remember perhaps at your Thanksgiving table – and especially with children. The real observance of the first Thanksgivings by first peoples has been all but forgotten by American culture. It is time to remember.
Let us greet the world in Thanksgiving as if we were sharing one mind, one heart, and one body. Today we have gathered and come from many different places. We have arrived safely at this place to share with each other our gifts from the Creator.
So we bring our minds together as one in Thanksgiving and Greetings to one another.We now turn our thoughts to Earth Mother. She continues to care for us and has not forgotten her instructions from the beginning of time. Now we bring our minds together in Thanksgiving for the Earth.
Now as one mind we turn our thoughts to the Waters of the Earth for they too have not forgotten their instructions from the Creator of Life. The Waters continue to flow beneath the ground, in little streams and in rivers, in lakes and in wetlands, and in the great seas. They quench our thirst and help keep us clean so we can fulfill our duty to Creation. We now bring our minds together in Thanksgiving to all the Waters of the Earth.We now address all the Beings both seen and unseen that dwell in the Water for they too have not forgotten their original instructions from the Creator of Life to provide for us in many ways. With one mind we send our Thanksgiving and Greetings to all the Nations who dwell in the Waters.
Now we direct our thoughts to the many kinds of plants that live upon the Earth- for they too have not forgotten their original instructions. Many members of this Nation sustain those who walk upon this Earth, and many others who continue to fulfill their duties to take away the sickness of the human family and elevate human consciousness. With one mind we send our thoughts and Thanksgiving to the Plant Nations.With one mind we now think of our relations in the many Insect Nations. Like the other members of the natural world, they too have not forgotten their original instructions to fulfill their obligation to Continued Creation.
With one mind we send our thoughts and Thanksgiving to all the members of the Insect Nations.We now gather our minds together and send Greetings and Thanksgiving to all the Animal Life in the world, for they continue to instruct and teach us even today. It is said that the Creator knew that Humans would take too much for granted if they were given all the wisdom, so instead the Creator gave a little piece of wisdom of how to live on the Earth to the different animals. We are happy that many still walk with us on our continuing journey. With one mind we send Thanksgiving to all the Animal Life in the world.
With one mind we now think of the Trees. According to their original instructions the Trees still give us shelter, warmth, food, and make the environment a suitable place to dwell. The trees remind us of the beauty and power in the natural world. With one mind we send our Thanksgiving to all the members of the Tree Nation.
We now bring our minds together and send our Greetings of Thanksgiving to the Birds. At the beginning of time the Birds were given a special duty to perform. The Creator gave the Birds instructions to each find a special place to live in the world and they should learn the song of that place. During the day, our minds are lifted by the songs of the Bird Nations. With one mind we send our Thanksgiving to the Birds of the world.
We are thankful to the Four Winds who continue to blow and cleanse the air according to their original instructions. As we listen to the Winds it is as if we are hearing the Creator’s breath, clearing our minds as it blows through the trees. With one mind we send our Thanksgiving to the Four Winds.We now turn our attention to the Thunderbeings. For they too have not forgotten their original instructions and welcome the Spring with their loud voice. Along with the lightning, they carry the waters of the spring on their backs. It is also said that the Thunderbeings were given the job to hold down the beings beneath the Earth which would prevent life from continuing. With one mind we send our Thanksgiving and Greetings to the Thunderbeings.
Our minds are as one as we send our thoughts to our oldest brother the Sun. Each day the Sun continues his instructions from the Creator of Life, bringing the light of day, the energy source of all life on Earth. With one mind we send our Thanksgiving to our oldest brother the Sun.
We now gather our minds together and give thanks to our oldest Grandmother the Moon. She holds hands with all the women of the world and binds all of the female cycles and rhythms of the Waters so we may continue to carry out our obligation to Creation. With one mind we send our Thanksgiving and Greetings to Grandmother Moon.
With one mind we send our thoughts to the Star Nation who continue to light our way during times of darkness to guide us home, and hold the secrets of many forgotten stories. Even though many of the stories are no longer in our minds, it is said it is enough to be thankful to the Stars and perhaps one day we would learn these stories again. With one mind we send our Thanksgiving and Greetings to the Star Nation.
With our minds as one we think of the Four Spirit Beings who live in the Four Directions. At the beginning of time when the Creator first made the Human Family, it was seen that they very quickly got themselves into trouble. The Creator knew that they needed extra help and so created the Four Spirit Beings to remove the obstacles from our paths and guide us with our feelings. And now we gather our minds together as one and send our special Thanksgiving to the Four Spirit Beings.
Now we have arrived in a very special place where dwells the Great Spirit, the Creator of the Universe. As one mind we turn our thoughts to the Creator, for without the Creator we would not be able to walk on the Earth fulfilling our original instructions.
Everything we need is provided for us and all we have to remember is to give thanks. With one mind we send our Thanksgiving and Greetings to the Creator.We have now become like one being. We send our Prayers and special Thanksgiving Greetings to all the unborn children of the future generations.
We send our thoughts to the Elders and the Children for they give us guidance and purpose to live in a good way. We are thankful to all the Enlightened Teachers who have come to help us throughout the ages. We send our thoughts to the many different beings we may have missed during our Thanksgiving. With one mind we send Thanksgiving and Greetings to all of the Nations of the World.
Now Our Minds Are One.

Shortly, I’m on my way to a dentist to take care of a sudden, painful dental problem, so this post will be short today. . .
I want to share a couple things with you regarding our present predicament. One came to me through Alfred Webre at Exopolitics. The article first appeared here:
Stephen Bannon? Will Trump Support Israeli Expansionism and Genocide? – The Book Lipstick and War Crimes by Ray Songtree . . . To get full understanding of this article, you must work your way through all of it. While I didn’t read it all to the end, I scanned it so that I understood what the author is saying. I think his words are important. So many of us are still hoping that Trump will bring change, but in the long run, I don’t believe it is in the cards. He is backed by the Rockefellers, remember a notable member of that group is Henry Kissinger, and while they may appear to make changes in order to survive what is coming — over the longer haul, it is my opinion that they must not be allowed to confuse us with more deception and lies. I hope we will not be so grateful for a bit of a reprieve right now that we will be willing to accept their tyrannical control over us far into the future.
Having said that, we are still engaged in a turf war between the Rockefellers (Trump), who appear to have won and the Rothschilds (Clintons). Today, we read:
I happen to think Jill is being used to throw the election to the Rothschilds/Hillary . . . and Jim Stone explains it all here (remember, you may have to update his site) I urge you to take a look for yourselves, since I don’t have time to import the info . . . It likely will turn your stomach!
I also see yet another situation developing – a possibility if their other ‘irons in the fire’ don’t work out, and it is in regard to the Dakota Protests. The American people are truly waking up, and they understand what is going on there (Please see my UPDATE on yesterday’s post) . . . and now our good Veterans have decided they will stand with and protect these people. After ramping up the situation, I can see that Obama may well use it to create martial law and try to continue his Presidency — and the control of the Rothschilds.
Finally, no one knows what twists and turns are going to occur in the next days, but I can see the real possibility that Clif High’s forecast comes true, only for slightly different reasons, reasons he probably could not have understood when he made his prediction back in mid- October: As the world observes the machinations of our crazies trying to run not only our country, but the entire planet, they will finally have had enough of us and simply bring down the fiat dollar system by returning their dollars home to us — and moving on into a multi-polar world.
THE END. . .
and perhaps a
for us all!
Russia gold buying in October was biggest monthly allocation since 1998 . . . Obviously, Russia is moving into the future. Because Putin understands sovereignty, he will wait until the world chooses to make a move to what is the logical outcome for us all. He has made his efforts on behalf of Russia alone, to whom he has pledged himself, but the world is beginning to understand he has no desire to interfere in their domestic ‘arrangements’ — as he doesn’t want them interfering in Russia’s. If a country wants to change such arrangements, they must do so on their own initiative, and that includes us here in the USA.
With the election of Donald Trump, I think many Americans may be preparing to go back to sleep for another four years — but what is coming at us is only the beginning of the pain we will suffer as we learn the truth and are faced with the choices it brings. Will we choose to continue to live under this same sort of regime? We can do so, if we want them to continue stealing our very lives from us. Or, we can wake up and begin to understand the benefits that come with maturity – as we assume the responsibilities of ruling ourselves and thus create the possibility of entering the Golden Age. What choice will we make?
