Where have all the teachings gone

November 4, 2015

There’s a few things we should remember and learn:
women

Taken today. The unpretentious, modest monument to murdered and missing indigenous women at the geographically significant, historic and spiritual centre of Turtle Island, The Forks (junction of the Red and Assiniboine Rivers) near the Balance of Spirit.

I have a great deal of respect for indigenous people and their teachings. In Canada, there is a great deal of talk about murdered and missing indigenous women. And a great deal of inaction/results/answers.

We are destined to make the same mistakes over and over unless the spirit comes into balance. Right now it is way out of control.

We could use more warrior women….
