Several students have written us to ask,”What can we do to support the rights of Native Americans and their efforts to prevent the Standing Rock pipeline project? How can we best do it?” There has also been some focus in their questions about the abuse of elders and children in the protests. In some cases your teachings are cited, “to make changes within, in order to create changes without,” but they are asking for help with practical guidance.
The changes to make are indeed within. Remember: you strengthen what you oppose. Find in your own life where your relationship with others is being used, specifically where it is keeping them from growing and becoming stronger themselves.
Examine where you shelter with kindness, serve without their contributing to their own life with as much effort, where you keep picking them up when they fall, etc. Mend your world by mending your life. If there’s an aspect that is prevalent like abuse of children and elders … stop abusing your Inner Child… play and explore and just allow more lighthearted things into each day. As for the Inner Elder … take time each day to feed the spiritual — at least as much time as you give to feeding the body.
