Miserable failures at life are the likes of Jesus, Martin Luther King Jr, Gandhi, Nelson Mandela.... their failed, miserable, pitiful lives cut in half by deaths or prison. Paupers. Miserable failures. Unless quality of life is more important than quantity of life in which case they are the most enviable creatures that have ever walked the earth. Jesus spoke of this. He who would hold onto his life shall lose it. He who would lose his life for the sake of those in need shall gain it. Many of us here remaining at Standing Rock are in this way among the most enviable people on earth, or that have ever walked the Earth. Many of us here are the exact equivalent of the resistance in Hunger Games, The Rebel Alliance, Neo in The Matrix and those who fought alongside of him. Spiritual Jedi. Note, all but one of the Jedi were exterminated, as I recall. We are among the few that have ever walked the Earth on two legs in the last 7000 years that are alive and have the joy of being alive. Martin Luther King said, a person is not equipped to live unless they know what they would die for. Many of us here that remain at Standing Rock know what we would die for, basically, a decent future for the next seven generations.. Prudence tells me to sleep in my clothes with my boots on tonight. The rumors are stronger than ever that we are about to be swept by the feds. I will live in the face of what Creator wants, not the fear that those forces of greed and darkness want. I will sleep in my normal sleep attire tonight. It is not my business what the feds, dapl, the corporations do. It is my business what I do. And paying attention to my business, which is to do Creation's business, is where life is to be found. Same for you. If there is to be a decent future for any of the next seven generations many of us will have to endure many atrocities...fast, furious, many. Nothing less has a prayer of waking up the goddamn cowardly sleeping masses, my brothers and sisters all, in time. Let them begin.
