Red Cry

spiritual poetry

Published on May 16, 2013

Red Cry is an original, feature-length documentary film chronicling the lives of Lakota Elders and Oyate (people) in the face of ongoing genocide against the Lakota by government and corporate interests.

The incendiary film is the result of a historic collaboration between traditional Tetuwan Lakota Elders and Warriors from Pine Ridge Reservation and a growing group of native and non-native solidarity activists. In togetherness they are working to bring Lakota Elders — particularly Grandmothers — to the world stage to speak with their own voices to the International community.

Shot in high-definition digital over the summer of 2012 by the Lakota Solidarity Project, Red Cry is the centerpiece of educational outreach for Wagunpi Woashake Ikicupi (Elders Take Back Their Strength) and Stand Behind the Lakota Grandmothers solidarity movement. Extensively researched, the documentary advances the struggles of the Lakota in their own words, from their unique perspectives.

Red Cry premiered on April 1, 2013 at the Mother Butler Center in Rapid City, SD in Lakota Territory. It was shown on consecutive nights in other cities as part of the Lakota Truth Tour.

My Spirit cannot BE Contained…

It’s Springtime here in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains.  We’ve had rain to quench the thirst of drought for a minute.  It’s green and the temperature is a mild 75 degrees.  Perfect weather, Perfect day!

I couldn’t stay inside today.  I find it harder and harder in fact.  The Mr. was out in the yard this morning and when he came back he said “I can’t stay here today” and I agreed wholeheartedly!    I’m finding it close to impossible to stay in any kind of “3D” at all.  It’s exhausting.  I’ve watched my “ego” die a slow death and I AM Grateful but where to from here?  I Honestly can’t wait to find out!  But in the meantime…

Today we drove to the lake and sat on a log and talked.  We became “official” birdwatchers and marveled at them all.  We saw a Red-winged Blackbird and couldn’t take our eyes off him as he swayed gently on the tip of a cottontail over the water.  He teaches Balance.

We sat on our wolf blanket and ate lunch and skipped rocks in the lake under the shade of a tree.  I laid down and saw the sunlight shimmering through the leaves of the Aspen trees.  They teach connectedness and ONEness as their roots are all intertwined with one another.  They teach Harmony.

We walked back the way we came picking up trash along the way trying not to get “angry” and glad to be of Service.  We walked through the meadow and saw a butterfly who teased us mercilessly as she buzzed us like an airplane buzzing a control tower.  I chased her through the meadow like a child full of Wonder and Curiosity all just to get a glimpse of her colorful wings.  She is a Mourning Cloak and teaches not to take things too seriously and to find time to play with Mother Gaia.

Of course we stopped by the River on the way back.  There cannot be a River nearby without me wanting to be close to it.  I Love everything about the River.  I just wrote about it so I won’t reiterate other than to say she teaches us to let go and let Gaia.

My Spirit cannot be contained inside.  It cannot be contained in “the matrix”.  I Feel like an alien dropped into a Magical place where there is a form of “insanity” that has taken over its occupants.  I wonder what the real aliens would think if they saw how much we take for granted and  how much we’ve forgotten to appreciate.  There is a great education available to ALL on Mother Gaia who chose to Stop, Look, and Listen.  It’s always Free and Priceless, just like Life.  I want to throw all the price tags off the planet and begin to Truly Live my Life as it was meant to be Lived.  I would flit here and there like the butterfly somedays or find Balance like the Red-winged Blackbird or seek Harmony with Humanity like the Aspen tree.  Everyday can be something New and Fresh to behold.  There is so much to explore and experience, see and do, feel and learn.  It is Endless.  It is Real.  I want to be there all the time.  My Spirit cannot be contained…

The River

No ONE can define The River.  The only ONE that can define the other is itself.  Life is The River…

We are all diverse BEings, interconnected in the web of Life, each with their own special Gift that contributes to the Whole.  The intricate thread of Life Creates a web of ONEness.  Just as the tree produces the acorn for the squirrel we each have a Purpose.  It is only by Accepting one another’s diversity and our own that we will see that each ONE of us has something to contribute to the Whole.

The River is Powerful and there is always a new choice to be made in order to change direction.  Its energy runs in the infinite pattern of the Creator always coming back to the same place so there is an opportunity to make a new decision.  The crossroads that continually come up is our Spirit saying “make a new decision, just this once”.  The River brings us what we put our energy into so to change course or direction all we have to do is redirect our energy.  We can perpetuate Kindness and embrace Diversity choosing to See or Think about things in a different way.  By making a simple choice to find Kindness and Beauty in all we see we can change the vibration of the Whole and the web of Life.  People, places, things, and circumstances are only as important as the energy we give it – Positive or negative, it is up to us to choose.  We can choose to Honor Diversity as Diversity is the Web of Life!

Honor EveryONE that you meet.  Look and Hear and Feel them with an Open Heart and an Open Mind.  Honor them ALL and Find the keys to unlock their Beauty withIN.  We are all mirrors and what we see in the mirror is what we choose to see, it is up to us as to what we are looking FOR.

Honor Life and Love whether you are saying goodbye or saying hello.  Honor the Earth as she is our Mother and the Giver of Life.  Honor the Heart whether it is lost in sorrow or shining bright for all the world to see.  Honor the Art whether it is a masterpiece worth millions or a hopscotch pattern drawn on the ground with sidewalk chalk.  Honor the grassroots people who make a difference everyday.  Honor the Music whether it’s a top ten hit or your child’s violin screeching in your ear driving you half mad.  Honor the writing that touches your Heart whether it changed your Life or made you smile.   Honor your parents and your children, sisters and brothers, husbands and wives  for you wouldn’t be a family without them.  Honor your body whether you are an athlete or letting it all hang out.  Honor your sexual preference because God made you Perfect just the way you are.  Honor your emotions as they let you know what brings Joy to your Life and what brings resistance.  Honor yourSELF whether you are having a rough go of it or you are on top of the World.  Honor those who are Healing from loss and trauma whether they chose it or someone else did.  Honor Heaven by reaching Christ Consciousness.  Honor Life by embracing diversity.

The River is undefined until it defines itself.  I AM undefined until I define MYself.  Life is The River…

Where I Come From

josephinewall_starscape

Where I come from and where I’m going are ONE and the same.  I don’t know if I will feel my Home again here on Earth where my feet touch the ground or when I leave this Wondrous place and join the company of Heaven.  There are many things I don’t know but there are also many things that I REmember…

We have to begin challenging ourselves and our belief systems at this point in our Human history.  If we begin to challenge ourselves and our belief systems we will begin to see the patterns of behavior set in place as defense mechanisms in how we deal with ourselves and others.  We can begin to see how much of our mind is in the machine and how much the machine is affecting Humanity and Mother Earth.  When we get our mind out of the machine we can begin to challenge the machine and the powers that were and Create something Divine.

Where I come from and where I’m going are ONE and the same.

Where I come from the Moon and the Stars are so close you can almost reach out and touch them because the Air is crisp and clean.  Where I come from the Flowers bloom in a constant cycle of Brilliant Colors unimaginable to the Human eye.  There is Prosperity and Equality for ALL Life.  There is an endless Abundance of food and medicine from the Earth who Provides all her children with everything they need to survive.  Where I come from it is not only a constitutional “right” but a Divine Right to pursue Life, Happiness, and Freedom from oppression.  Where I come from the Universal Laws are the only laws.  There is no pavement to choke the Earth from Her Breath and no toxic waste to soil her Waters and shores.  The Earth is a playground of Mystery and Magic.  Where I come from we communicate through our Emotions and our Empathetic Nature because there are no words to describe the depths of our Joyful Emotions.  All of our Emotions come from the energy that sparked our very Creation which is the energy of Unconditional Love.  There is no fear, nor jealousy, nor lust, nor envy, nor death as we know that the Universe wants to Provide for us and we are Worthy of being Provided for.  There is no need to protect oneself from harm, criticism, judgement,  or negativity because we Live in the transparency of Truth and Love.  There is an Unconditional Love and Acceptance for ALL Life in the multiverse   We Live our Lives to the fullest from our Hearts as they all beat in sync with one another and all Life in the multiverse   We sing and laugh and play every day as we search for the keys to unlock all the hidden wonders of Life because we know that to Live one must always accept change in order to Evolve, Learn, and Grow.  There is an endless supply of Knowledge and Wisdom to choose the path that peaks your Curiosity and Wonder.  We are in Awe of one another’s experiences and titillated to hear the details of  Amazing journeys undertaken in some of  the harshest of conditions in order to Grow in Spirit.   We are fiercely Loyal to those we Love but know that sometimes Love means letting go for to Love is to have Eternal Life.   Where I come from children are our greatest masters and teachers as ALL women are Mothers to the Children of Earth for to deny our Empathy and Love is to deny our very Soul.  We mirror the Beauty we see in one another’s Soul always searching to find more Beauty in the other as the Beauty of Life is endless.  We work in Harmony with one another, with Nature, and with the God and Goddess who are ever present in every decision we make which is always for the Greater Good in the Spirit of Love and Life.  Where I come from we Thrive in the gentle flow and rhythms of Bliss and Happiness ever Grateful for what we have and ever mindful of doing harm unto another or the multiverse.

Where I come from and where I’m going are ONE and the same…I AM an Angel of Earth, I AM a Mother to all the children of Earth, I AM from Heaven and Heaven shall return to me.
