Good morning, my relatives…

I am here. I am glad you are here. To paraphrase Vine Deloria, Jr, let’s come together to work on things that are important. 

The idiot-in-chief is trying to destroy everything good we have worked for and in the meantime, trying to demoralize us. He and his cronies are trying to put the final touches on a movement to commodify all that gives life and soul to this world. 

Now is the time for us to be aware of and claim our inherent right to not be bought and sold. And if we are not for sale, neither should be our relatives. Life is a gift from Creator. We are given hearts that beat together, and that flow with the spirit of life. All of us, no matter the physical form.

Stand strong. Life is a series of cycles, and endings and beginnings are a natural law. A natural cycle. We may be at an era of massive ending, but think ahead to what might be beginning. 

I often think about what I will leave behind. Will I leave enough love? When my spirit exits my vessel, will that vessel be worthy of being put on the ground? Lately, I have come to think, also, about what I will be beginning, and how ready I will be as a spiritual being to embark on that journey. 

When I think with my heart, in this way, I see that we are living in a time of endings. And I’m learning to not be as scared anymore. Instead, I’m trying to learn about the rituals of letting go in a respectful way. I’m fiddling with how to honor that which is passing so that a peaceful transition to the new can be realized. 

Do not mistake the intention of my words. I am committed to defending all relatives on this planet who, though they are screaming for peace and respect, are still unheard. I will fight for the right to begin and be…But like a good warrior, I am also prepared for the endings. 

Let’s come together to work on things that are important. And honor this cycle we are in.
