  • Did You Ever....

    Have the oppurtunity to grow up with some rather cool people and continue on with that experience thru the years but, but.....There was always a small percentage who were just miserable? You know that contingent of people that no matter what anyone did.......were just never satisfied? Seems this way time after time, but staying positive is the key right? The ole crabs in the barrel mentality and the I, Me, My Syndrome is what i'm inferring here....Did you ever happen upon a situation wheras you offer assistance for the greater good of something and the ball is just a rolling, and all of a sudden out of the clear blue your basically slapped in the face? You know that tough handshake complete with the cheap smile routine.....I'm feeling that and honestly it disheartens me....So i'm dealing with it the best way I know and dats running muh jib.....Smile.....As Sam reminded me thru the years we ain't called Tribes for nothing....N when your an outsider their gonna make that crystal clear.....To know of Traditional values is one thing but to live and practice them is another....So in a nutshell thats it.....Just wanted to share that and if your sitting there scratching your head I just hope folks appreciate the good things you do. And when those who sit up upon high completly out of the mix you know the so called leaders.....tug N pull at your strings I hope you stay strong I hope you realize the good things you do are appreciated by the lil ones who mean so much to you..If you teach (and we all do)....Keep smiling cause I certainly will! This Coyot will be careful not to wear his rose colored glasses......But I'll keep the Faith and I will continue to think with my heart instead of my head.....

    Man I sure have! Too many in my (cough53cough) years of being on this earth. I too think with my heart and time and time again it has gotten beat up. (pardon the pun.. heart...beat up.. sorry) And still as many times as it has happened I'm left going whatdahell?
    Crabs in the barrel is right... no matter what, they wanna pull you down. Why? Only things I can think of would be fear and jealousy. It's NOT because they love you and are keeping your best interest at heart. These type of people are fine and wonderful as long as you follow their agenda.. as soon as you have a thought that either goes against theirs or might challenge them to think about theirs....
    The only thing I know for certain is the uncertainty of it all. You can't predict who will do it or how it's coming but it does. What I try to do is just to do what I believe to be right so I can hold my head up and not stand ashamed before the creator. All the rest is gravy.
    And you have to admit.... the lessons learned during times like these are really valuable so I try to focus on that and not all the minutiae.

      I think that most people are at different stages of healing and yet some people are still in their negative behaviors, so you just have to move on with your journey in life...and yes to keep smilin, because sometimes isn't worth the time and effort to have those type of people recognize and identify what they are doing..sometimes you can sometimes you cant..

        YUP, been there.

        I know people who have what I would consider everything: health, family, good friends, a roof over their heads, food on the table, clothes on their back and shoes on their feet. And yet, they are so not happy and wanting so much more.

        And helping people out. Oh, I sure have there too. I've helped people, dropped everything for them--did everything that they asked and then when it was all over, they got mad at me and didn't speak to me for months. And when they came back needing help again---I was there for them and with them. It's not what I get out of it but what I can give to other's. I have one to answer to and they are not them. So they can get mad at me all they want and not speak to me, but I will always be there---that's who I am. But we all are human and these things do happen, unfortunately, all the time.

          Dealing with anger
          by chirapachegurl
          what are some of the ways that you deal with your anger and the person you're angry at? i've tried the deep breathing, listening to soft music, taking a walk, sleeping in the other room, thinking about worst things that i could be mad about but it doesn't help me.

          Right now I have very mixed feelings about the events of today. I realize the large majority of the members here have no idea what happened and were not involved.

          I've spent alot of time and money developing the site with most of it going into the features on this forum. Right now...

          Boozhoo niji,

          I know this one is gonna start some fires, so be it. This have been bugging me for a couple of months and now I am bringing it out into the open for everyone to attack, flame, ridicule and possibly even get banned over.

          Thoughts on the Red Road vs. Rainbow Tribe Way
          by Mato Winyan
          This is a letter I received from a person that I have permission to post here. This is a result of a discussion on a group on the net. It was started because a person came on the site and posted a "prophesy" by the Rainbow Tribe. I felt that this man explained things extremely well without...
