“Walking the Red Road” …. a gallery!!!

~~March 23, 2014~~

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.

~~Black Elk~~

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!”

Black Elk’s Prayer for All Life

~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.

“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.”

~~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.

GreenB

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.

The question is: Who will survive the end of these things and be around to help shape the next society which must operate with far greater humility and wisdom?

“The Odd Life of Timothy Green” …. a good movie!


~~March 23, 2014~~

I wanted to watch this movie since the previews were shown in the theaters. As it frequently happens, life has other plans and I didn’t go to the movies to see it. They were showing it on TV yesterday … and there I was! Watching it. I found it very touching and sweet. Lessons learned.

~~Plot~~

The film is told from the perspective of Cindy (Jennifer Garner) and Jim Green (Joel Edgerton), as they explain their experience with Timothy (CJ Adams) in an effort to persuade an adoption agency to allow the couple to adopt a child.

Cindy, who works in the town’s local museum, and Jim, who is employed at the town’s historic pencil factory, reside in the drought-stricken town of Stanleyville, North Carolina. The Greens are informed by doctors that they are unable to conceive. Distraught by the news, Jim convinces Cindy to dream up their ideal child and write the child’s characteristics and life events on slips of notepad paper.

GreenB

The couple places the notes inside a box and buries it in the backyard garden. After a thunderstorm, which seemingly affects only their property, a ten-year-old arrives at their home claiming the Greens as his parents.

After finding the box they buried smashed to pieces around a large hole in the ground where they originally buried it, and finding the boy inside their house, covered in mud, they realize that the boy, named Timothy, is actually a culmination of all their wishes of what their child would be.

GreenB

The Greens also discover that Timothy has a startling feature: he has leaves growing on his legs.

GreenB

The next day, at a family picnic, Timothy is introduced to members of his family: Brenda Best (Rosemarie DeWitt), Cindy’s pompous sister; James Green Sr. (David Morse), Jim’s estranged father; and Mel (Lois Smith) and Bub (M. Emmet Walsh), Cindy’s paternal aunt and uncle.

GreenB

The parents take Timothy to their friend and town botanist, Reggie (Lin-Manuel Miranda), where they learn that Timothy’s leaves cannot be removed.

GreenB

Timothy begins to attend school, where he meets Joni Jerome (Odeya Rush), a girl he meets during a bullying incident, with whom he begins a friendly relationship. Meanwhile, the town’s pencil factory, the largest employer in Stanleyville, begins laying off its employees. Timothy convinces Cindy and Jim to design a prototype for a new pencil in an effort to keep the pencil-producing business viable.

GirlGreenB

Unbeknownst to the parents, one of Timothy’s leaves falls off each time he fulfills one of the qualities listed on the original slips of paper.

Timothy eventually reveals to Cindy and Jim that his time of existence is short and that he will eventually disappear.

GreenB

The Greens’ meeting with the adoption counselor concludes with Cindy presenting a letter that Timothy left them before leaving. In the letter, he explains to them what he did with each of his leaves that fell off, with a montage sequence showing each person whose life Timothy touched.

After an unspecified amount of time, the adoption counselor is shown pulling up to the Greens’ house in a car with the little girl who is to become the Greens’ daughter.

One to be outside in spite of the humid weather. Some, though, would rather stay inside.

Happy Sunday Morning


Perfect expression of THE plan!!

.

sining9 copyHappy Sunday Morning. After settling into the ultimate sunrise. The daunting task of love and bliss awaits me. After all that’s what most of us are after. Isn’t it? Have a cup of coffee or tea, express yourself through art, tell people, call people, show up, give, get, and pursue happiness and love. That’s what we seem to be doing. In the meantime, the sun is rising. And some of us are missing it. It’s as if God is saying, “just chill, I ‘m doing my thing. check it out.”  Stand up and take a deep breathe. That’s all it takes to acknowledge the world and people around you. Stand up and look up to the sky.  Your love is already there. You don’t have to wait for it. Just live in it and appreciate what you already have. How great are you already? Who do you already know that…
