When The Smoke Clears

Published March 18, 2020 by tindertender

We are all in this together.
Literally we are all feeling the same anxiety (in varying degrees and forms) about the same thing, uncertainty over this virus, and this has never happened in most of our lifetimes.
This is truly remarkable beautiful ones.
Let this sink in.
We have the extraordinary opportunity to be in each other’s shoes at the same time in this moment in history.
We can close our eyes and know we are all connected.
So what will matter most when this is over?
What will you ask yourself in the quiet spaces of your mind?
How did I treat people?
How did we treat each other? đź–¤

Really Seeing Myself

Published March 18, 2020 by tindertender

I have roommates, two of them. One roommate in particular does not to pick up after himself in the kitchen. I’m constantly riding him about cleaning up when he’s finished.

Last night he warmed his leftovers. He offered to share, and I partook.

Later, I went into the kitchen to see pan and cookie sheet with food on them still on the stove. I hollered at him, “you going to clean up and put dishes in dishwasher?”

Several hours went by. I went to kitchen and dishes were still on stove. For a brief moment I was irritated and then I thought, wait a minute.

This man cooked dinner. He shared it with me. And then I hollered at him to clean up the mess?

Wow.

I saw myself clearly. What an ungrateful wench I was behaving as! How dare I allow him to cook, partake in the meal, and then expect him to clean.

Am I a queen?

Well … yes.

Which is precisely why I woke him up and apologized for this unthoughtful behavior. How weird that I didn’t even notice what a twit I was being.

It’s these things, these habitual spoutings off without really thinking.

Aahhh coming fully conscious isn’t always pleasant, especially when you see the patterns which need altering.

This goes for all humanity. We get into patterns, habits, and then from there, we determine all other patterns are somehow faulty.

Wrong.

Acceptance is a difficult thing. Especially when we are used to always “being right”.

Own it.

The Worst of the Worst … Period

What if darkness took control of the most important resources of the world because those with goodness and power were not interested in controlling others?

What if the people who claim to be commanding judgment are actually instead projecting their own guilt of their own poor performance onto those around them? What if institutions designed this way are literally a collective of that personality flaw projection into the world?

What if the people telling you they are ‘good’ are those who got rich by taking what was yours, for themselves? Are people supposed to worship those who lied and stole the most from them?

What if they all have, literally, the most distorted brains around (aside)?

What if those outfitted, literally, anchored to the top, are those from the bottom?

What if thousands of years of distraction and redirection could’ve instead yielded 10’s of thousands of years of advancement?

The situation is FOR CRIMINALS in this country to make a date with CRIMINALS from another country, to destabilize and ENSLAVE those of both sides. WORLD DOMINATION, is the only game they know and their dice broke.

All those companies, ‘news’ on the internet, ‘feeds’, trendy, poppy, get your info, don’t question our ridicule BS, they all MADE FUN OF THE TRUTH COMING OUT. Made fun of the PEOPLE whose LIVES WERE INFLUENCED by that SYSTEMIC DARKNESS, ONLY because they thought they would win.

Now the record of who would rather sell humanity down the river, to continue making a buck and pretending they are important, telling the truth, ‘helping the people’, when they are deceivers and the lowest low of any form of society, is visible to all.

And yes, in any society, whether we go up or down, those who sell out their own kind, they are the worst of the worst, period.

MARDRID, SPAIN – U.S. Embassy — Over 75 Indigenous activists and their allies demonstrated in front of the US Embassy in Madrid, Spain to demand justice for missing and murdered Indigenous women, two-spirits and girls(MMIW). The delegation was removed from the sidewalk by Spain’s National Police and followed for blocks. The police liaison with the group was held back and forced to show his documents.

In 2016, the Urban Indian Health Institute found that only 116 out of 5,712 cases of MMIWG reported in the United States were recorded in the Department of Justice’s federal missing persons database.

Inaccurate counts of blood quantum have had an enormous effect on Native individuals and nations.

PAPER GENOCIDE: THE ERASURE OF NATIVE PEOPLE IN CENSUS COUNTS

Native people were excluded from the first 70 years under the U.S. Constitution, which explicitly regarded “Indians not taxed,” or those living on reservations or unsettled territories, as not countable.

Native people, in particular, are the most undercounted ethnic group in the census’ history. Native people were excluded from the first 70 years under the U.S. Constitution, which explicitly regarded “Indians not taxed,” or those living on reservations or unsettled territories, as not countable. In more recent years, the U.S. Census Bureau’s own data has shown significant undercounting. In the 1990 census, 12.2 percent of Native people on reservations were undercounted, according to the Census Bureau’s findings. A decade later, the census seemed to improve, with the bureau not reporting a statistically significant undercount. But then in 2010, it jumped back up to 4.9 percent.

This is particularly devastating for Indigenous people because of how census data has been used to help determine many aspects of tribal sovereignty, such as tribal recognition and enrollment.
