The red road is a concept of the right path of life, as inspired by some of the beliefs found in a variety of Native American spiritual teachings.
Native Americans’ spiritual teachings are diverse, and while there are sometimes common elements, the ceremonies and many of the beliefs are unique to the people of these diverse bands, tribes and nations.
The concept was first brought to non-native American audiences by John G. Neihardt, in his book Black Elk Speaks. Though Black Elk (1863–1950) was Oglala Lakota, the book was authored by Neihardt, who is non-Native. While lauded by non-Native audiences, and inspirational to many New Age groups, the book is largely considered to not be representative of actual Lakota beliefs. Neidhardt claimed that Black Elk believed he had an obligation to “help to bring my people back into the sacred hoop, that they might again walk the red road in a sacred manner pleasing to the powers of the universe that are one power.”
“Hear me, four quarters of the world–a relative I am! Give me the strength to walk the soft earth, a relative to all that is! Give me the eyes to see and the strength to understand, that I may be like you. With your power only can I face the winds.
Great Spirit, Great Spirit, my Grandfather, all over the earth the faces of living things are all alike. With tenderness have these come up out of the ground. Look upon these faces of children without number and with children in their arms, that they may face the wind and walk the good road to the day of quiet.
This is my prayer; hear me!”

~Twelve unsustainable things that will soon come to a disastrous end to our planet~
If you look around what’s really happening in our world today, there’s an inescapable pattern that curiously emerges: Much of what’s going on is simply unsustainable. It can’t go on for much longer, in other words. And it must collapse due to the laws of economics or physics.

Conventional agriculture and “rape the planet” farming

“I’m aware of the grammar mistakes in the introduction. I’m also aware that “it’s” is an abbreviated version of “it is”. I don’t need a lecture on correct English. I was extremely tired and made a couple of errors regarding grammar. My mistakes don’t take anything away from the sentiment of the introduction or video. I’m human, I make mistakes, deal with it.”

This is the only world we have. There is no backup planet.
Let’s care for it!
~~Life is on the line~~
Those are 12 of the biggest things that are entirely unsustainable on our planet right now. Human life depends on most of them. It makes you wonder: How will humans survive when these systems and resources upon which we depend have run out or collapsed?
That is a question we’d all better be asking ourselves right now. Because the age of cheap fuel, cheap money, cheap water and cheap food is fast ending. The future of life on our planet will require something far more evolved than the infantile, selfish and self-destructive mindset that humanity has so far demonstrated.
Debt-based money systems don’t cut it. Burning up all the fossil fuels is only a fool’s abundance. Medicating the humans and animals with toxic, synthetic pharmaceuticals is a form of medical insanity.
These things will all come to an end.
