This is the power of nonviolent resistance! When I read the news, I ran over and picked up my four year old daughter and said, "Baby, we won! The Indians won!" I couldn't hold back the tears of joy. This is the greatest victory we've ever had on behalf of American Indian. And it's about time. It sets a new standard. Today will go down in history as the day we chose the vitality of our land and people over profits. This certainly goes against American tradition, but I hope this is the beginning of a new tradition. When we unite for something beautiful, we are able to truly experience the miracle of our interconnectedness. This is a way of life for the Indians. And today they showed the world how powerful we can be when we unite against tyranny and exhibit true #grace, #patience and #love. This is a day to celebrate and thank the Standing Rock Sioux for teaching our leaders what true power looks like. #standwithstandingrock #standingrock #nodapl #nodapl #peace #nonviolentresistance #revolution #consciousness // Much love and gratitude, in remembrance of John Trudell and Russell Means for their leadership in the American Indian Movement. I wish they were here to see this day.  {scout training} She loves to run and is so at home in nature. She also loves her braids (thanks mama). I love that she'd rather be out in the woods than in front of a screen. She lives in her own imagination, where she remains limitless and free, just as she entered this world four years ago. As her father, I'll do everything I can to foster an environment where she stays that way. #fatherhood #fathering #fatherly #parenthood #counsciousparenting #daughter #nature #americanindian #indianscout #mindfulness  I've always loved this Quaker wisdom. We live in an age where there is so much noise. People are constantly positioning themselves to appeal to their target audience. There is so much talk. I say, "let your life speak". To "be the change you want to see in the world", you must commit to exemplifying your ideals in your lifestyle, the WAY you live. Our family motto is to "just be love". I want my life to speak that commitment to everyone I encounter. #justbelove #fatherhood #familyfirst #payitforward #mindfullness #quaker #chooselove #letyourlifespeak #ubunturevolution  {channeling bogart} #twinning #twin #zionsol #son #fatherhood #family #mohawk #smoothoperator
 {teya jupiter} I think this captures her little soul quite well. She's so deeply connected and intelligent. Contemplative and confident, even at only 15 months. I often stare into her eyes, just to try and experience a glimpse of her limitlessness and divine intuition. I can't imagine being a parent and not taking the time to connect in that way. We have so much to learn from our children, if only we choose to embrace their wisdom, rather than attempting to shape them into merely surviving the system and fitting into the status quo. Our role as parents is to protect their connection to Source and allow them to remain limitless. #keepthemlimitless #patience #bekind #deliberateliving #children #babies #parenting #parenthood #fatherhood #fatherly #mindfulness #consciousness #parents #happiness #consciousparenting #wholechildren #limitless #teyajupiter @ileaangaza  {our little indian scout} Saoirse and I go on mindfulness hikes every weekend, to soak in all of the awe and beauty of this planet we are so fortunate to inhabit. She got her first walking stick last weekend, which she proudly holds in this photo. (We added feathers now too.) She's so in tune with nature and Spirit. So grateful and aware. It's so beautiful to see her thriving in nature, and desiring it over all the other things that could hold her attention. Her greatest quest is to be a good Indian scout. Such an enlightened little soul. #proudfather #fatherhood #fatherly #daughter #saoirse #nature #mindfulness #walkingstick #nativeamerican #indians #indianscout  {sister chat} #sisters #twin #justbelove #teyajupiter #fatherhood  Over the last two decades of being an activist/humanitarian/philanthropist (whatever you want to call it) my methods have evolved significantly from fighting and "raging against the machine" to simply resolving that being love and amplifying it through my life is the most effective long term method for fostering peace. And that starts at home, as an individual and in the example I set for my children. If everyone was so deliberate about setting an example of "being love", peace would unfold in front of us. No fight necessary. We can fight the symptoms of fear forever. Or we can replace that fear with love and be part of a revolution for peace. #justbelove #family #peace #blacklivesmatter #socialjustice #justice #evolution
 {divine, limitless souls} It's been an intense week with the election outcome. I know Trump's greatest threat to America is his influence over culture and perspective, more than policy (like any president). And that is beyond frightening. It's a reminder to everyone of the importance to let our lives speak of our commitment to being love, no matter what. And that starts in our hearts and minds, then extends to our loved ones. When I look at these beautiful little souls I am reminded that are still limitless and free. I know our most effective contribution to fostering peace and equality and harmony with our planet is to invest in the perspective of our children. Our priority must always center around inspiring them to "be love". The revolution for peace we want will not come from our politicians. It is up to us to allow our souls to be awakened, and for it to spur us to exemplify our ideals, rather than let fear and anger grip us. #justbelove #chooselove #2016election🇺🇸 #trump #45thpresident #equality #peace #grace #TrumpTheCatalyst #TrumpPence #americathebeautiful #usa #bekind #parenthood #parenting #fatherhood #fatherly #dads  {big z} #zionsol #fatherhood #hiking #nature #parenthood #justbelove #ubuntu  Wait...was that spaghetti sauce?

 Today we can choose to be devastated by the selection of Donald Trump as our 45th president, and the threat to peace he personifies. Or we can choose to be grateful for his single greatest investment in the greatness of America. Trump is the catalyst we’ve all been waiting for. We abolished slavery. We united for civil rights. Women were granted the right to vote. We made seatbelts mandatory. Society has a history of uniting for change when the habit of enduring the problem no longer seems viable. I believe Trump’s presidency will indeed “Make America Great Again”. And it will do so by posing such a deplorable threat that it drives us into realizing that a united revolution for peace, equality and planetary alignment is the only logical reaction. Today I am grateful for a catalyst so undeniably outrageous it can no longer be ignored. Let it spur us into action. Let it invigorate us with us with hope. And most of all, let it unite us.

No one is merely your enemy. Everyone you meet, from the fleeting encounters of daily life to family and friends, is your teacher, divinely orchestrated to further your evolution into love. If you choose to view every human you encounter as a teacher, you enter into the eternal flow and balance of life. Even your perceived enemies and anyone else causing contrast in your life are set in your path to provide you an opportunity to be love, to exhibit patience and understanding. Embrace them. Be grateful for them, as you are intrinsically connected to them. Our journeys are intertwined #justbelove #love #ubunturevolution #interconnected #ubuntu #tao #mindfulness #unconditionallove #weareplanetary #chooselove  Do not go silently into the night. Live loud. Let the spirit move through you. Live your life as a work of art. Paint something beautiful. The answer to every question and every world problem is to "just be love". And part of being love is allowing the music of your heart to flow. Your uniqueness is a gift to humanity. Share it with the world. #justbelove #friedrichnietzsche #nietzsche #love #music #heart #carpediem #justbeyou #followyourheart #bewild #tasyavanree
 A war against a war is still a war. There is no such thing as a "just war". In Bushido, the way of the Samurai, they held the perspective that if one must resort to war, they have already failed. The Lakota, Sioux held their heads in sorrow and mourned the death of their enemies after they one a battle. War is a choice, not an inevitability. Whether the conflict is with a country, a friend, race, culture or family member, we have the choice to exhibit unconditional love and patience, or go to war. But we cannot expect war to result in peace. Until we embrace our interconnectedness, we will remain divided. And that division keeps us caged. True freedom only comes from peace, and peace only comes from love. #mindfulness #americanindian #nonviolence #standingrock #peace #love #justbelove #chooselove #war #syria #syrianrefugees #patience #lakota  {evolve into love} #justbelove #chooselove #lifepurpose #evolve #evolveintolove #journey #purpose #life #love #interconnected #ubuntu #ubunturevolution #cosmos  Whatever the problem, whatever the question, the answer is always, "just be love". It's easy to write that off as cute or utopian, but the reality is that we are all here to evolve into love through our individual and collective journeys. With all the chaos and division of society, it's easy to get caught up in the game. But love is always the answer, no matter the circumstances. Imagine if everyone resolved to this belief and exemplified love. The revolution starts with you. /// If you agree, amplify the message by sharing it. And remember to just be love. #justbelove #chooselove #lovewins #socialjustice #equality #family #love #justice #respect #unity
