"People can spend their entire life searching for enlightenment outside, traveling the whole world from the bottom of the oceans
to the top of the mountains.
They can search as much as they like, but it won't be found anywhere other than inside
that which is doing the searching."
“To liquidate peoples you start by depriving them of memory. They destroy your books, your culture, your history. And someone else writes other books, gives them another culture, makes up another history; after that, people slowly begin to forget who they are and who they were. And the world around you forgets even faster."

"It is very important to go out alone, to sit under a tree—not with a book, not with a companion, but by yourself—and observe the falling of a leaf, hear the lapping of the water, the fishermen’s song, watch the flight of a bird, and of your own thoughts as they chase each other across the space of your mind. If you are able to be alone and watch these things, then you will discover extraordinary riches which no government can tax, no human agency can corrupt, and which can never be destroyed."
NO FRONTIER. There never was a frontier in what we call the United States of America and hundreds of indigenous nations occupied the whole hemisphere for tens of thousands of years. Their cities were as large or larger than any European city and the people were highly skilled in astronomy, geography, language and math. There were no savages and Manifest Destiny led to one of the largest holocausts known to mankind, 70-100 million. The notorious Doctrine of Discovery gave Europeans a right to place their banner in the ground and declare the land in the name of god. A frontier never existed and "civilized" or "civilization" was used to describe Europeans. These people here were far advanced in proper balance with Mother Earth, Father Sky and Fire, breath of Earth. It was unacceptable what the new comers did. They simply invaded a well populated hemisphere and attempted to wipe out the culture and people. Think where you walk. Each step take notice. This is Indigenous Land.
Vulnerability is the birthplace of love, belonging, joy, courage, empathy, and creativity. It is the source of hope, empathy, accountability, and authenticity. If we want greater clarity in our purpose or deeper and more meaningful spiritual lives, vulnerability is the path. Brené Brown
Who are you calling a fascist?
Actual fascism is characterized by militarism and nationalism. It usually is lead by a strong dictatorial leader benefiting from a cult of personality. Its regimes are prejudiced against its societies' marginalized groups. Their leaders reject liberal democracy, tend to emphasize social and economic control and are generally not averse to violence.
