LIVES OF COLOR & BEAUTY Brooke Medicine Eagle June 30, 2020

Even through all the pain that is surfacing in this time of BLACK LIVES MATTER, there is a deep part of me celebrating the awakening of the general public and the caring that is being shown. May it continue and deepen in order to address and heal an issue that has been buried for so long, right in front of us.
AND, I call for attention to the others who have been oppressed as well, whether the “reason” has been color, gender, or any other thing. For sure, it’s time to face the painful truth of what has happened to brown people, native people, indigenous people, tribal people, original people of this land. It’s not just the surface trauma that we see – brutality, women disappearing and found dead, poverty, alcoholism, and all of that horror – but the DEEPER ISSUES that have led to those things and more.
Put yourself in the shoes of a people who had invaders take everything they had (including by the way, ALL THIER CHILDREN), and it makes 911 look like a Sunday picnic in comparison. Imagine being a sleepy people, running for their lives, who were hit by machine guns – aimed low to hit them sleeping exhausted in their ragged tipis. Imagine your family, if cavalry men rode by and ran a saber through your pregnant wife. And then imagine, being rounded up and confined, given crap for food, and spat upon. I’m sorry to be so graphic, but it’s just the truth ~ the sickening, painful truth ~ and we must open our hearts to the grief of these things that underly what is happening now for native peoples, if we are to begin the profound healing that is required.
So thank you for not closing your hearts down in the middle of this truly challenging time. NOW IS THE TIME WE CAN HEAL, and move forward into the beauty of unity that is so possible for us as humans. Don’t let color, or money, or politics, or meanness, or the hurt and anger of distressed minorities, stop you from doing what you know is right ~ DO THE NEXT RIGHT THING, whether it be large or small.
Even if you don’t know what to do, be brave enough to follow you heart. LOVE IS THE ANSWER, and Great Mother made you of that! Shine the LIGHT of your Awareness ~ a gift from Father Spirit ~ onto these troubled waters and continue to paddle. WE CAN DO THIS, and we must do it for the sake of all the children of Earth ~ human and All Our Relations. Otherwise, as our elders tell us, we humans will disappear from this sweet Earth, and we can’t let that happen. This Mother Gaia home is too precious.
Bless you in your walk of Honor and Unity. May your back be strong and straight, and your heart soft and open. I’m crying with both the pain of what has been, and the profound joy of what I’m clear that we can now create. Love, Brooke
