As most of my readers know, I usually post astrological and metaphysical articles I believe will bring forth a greater astrological understanding and sense of "spiritual connectedness." I tend not to post on other things here, since I found most political debates too strident with a lot of "sound and fury signifying nothing." That said, I found something I believe to be of utmost importance for all of us to be aware of, since it does involve our spiritual connectedness with the land and "all our relations."
A brief note on why I take the approach I do here at the cantina. I quit political and environmental blogging due to most of it leading to feelings of frustration, agitation, and wheel-spinning in me and others. That's why I tend not to link to passing news or opinions on other sites, political, astrological, environmental, or whatever, regardless of how well-meaning they are, as a lot of them are unhelpful regarding the larger work I'm trying to do.
I have found these things tend to promote division rather than unity, or offer erroneous information that can lead to unfortunate ego manifestations when challenged. With that in mind, I do offer a few excellent sites on my right hand links that for the most part offer accurate information on things I believe are important. Some of them are even humorous.
Today I give you a link to an excellent article focusing on a 100 year old abomination taking place here in America posted over at one of my favorite political sites, My Left Wing. The article is titled We Will Never Sell (Our Sacred Black Hills) and offers us all much food for thought. Of course, though much of what you will read is upsetting (as all injustices are) please use the agitation to move into a meditative state and direct your thoughtforms to whatever your highest intention and realization can bring forth. I probably won't comment much, since I am still staying somewhat "retired" from political commentary at this time in my life. But someday....
I found the article through a fan of the site, along with The International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers. I believe these to be very worthy efforts to bring our attention to our fundamental connectedness with the Earth and each other, which is why I offer them today.
I have been a friend of several "indigenous grandmothers" over the years, and find the "grandmothers" of all "tribes" promote the type of spirituality that will ultimately save our Souls and help us remember that we are all one tribe, one race, the human race. Divine Mother energy is on the move, and being ultimately redemptive and compassionate, holds the promise that we will again find heaven on Earth and the Spirit in each other's eyes and hearts.
