I pray to the East for life and illumination
I pray to the South for strength and family
I pray to the West for courage and wisdom
I pray to the North for rebirth and guidance

I pray to you golden Eagle
I pray the peoples of my lands hear your seven thunders.
The beats grow louder and faster with each rising sun.
I pray to you Father Bear to give me strength of character and a vision of wisdom to guide me through dark times.
I pray to the stars may their light guide me, may their light illuminate your path
And may we meet there on new grounds and take sage and speak of hope in one another as brothers and sisters.

I am the Earth and of the Earth, just a simple man with complex thoughts, but these thoughts are not mine, they have been here thousands of years before me and I have been repeating them in each life.
It is good to see you again my friend, you have heard me speak – again

I am proud of my Native American Heritage and am making it a goal to return to a lot of the old ways.

Photography is my friend and outlet, making a statement concerning injustice and the need for equality amongst every soul that walks this Earth is my passion.

I create art to be controversial, and make you think.

The truth has never damaged the righteous cause

    GASP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Bezay….this is INCREDIBLE…and the clip- WOW! I can’t tell you how much this moves me…the thunder element in this…makes it especially relevant ..for me…BRILLIANT WORK…This image along with the words and beat are so inspirational.

  • Thank you Rose, we all have a quest, it is inevitable, there is so much outside interference and noise we forget the inner spirit that propels us, the quest is to discover what we are moving towards, it is two age old "Quest"ions, – Why are we here? What is my purpose? To get there we must ask for and receive revelation, by this – a time when we become aware of our downfalls or shortcomings, those basic tenets trigger the quest in us all, Still we are what we are, but as a whole, people together, we are magnificent if we only take the time to listen to the voice within.

    Beautifully expressed Jeff. As usual, your writings are heartfelt and make many minds think in a different way. It is a good thing!

  • Sometimes we’re just compelled, like not even of ourselves when we express. I so appreciate your propelling me and being my muse Deborah

    What a gorgeous image J. Your post editing work is outstanding! I feel like this is an image of “the grandfather” you spoke of on another of your pages, watching over the earth. Your writing is inspiring…..whether they are your words or thoughts that have been channeled through you, I’m happy that you’ve taken the time to share them

  • Thank you Lisa, Art is inspired one way or another, the words spilled out faster than I could type, under 2 minutes, these lucid moments have been coming more frequently, and for this I am thankful, and I am also thankful you appreciate this

    I’m blown away by this artwork I see in front of me, what an exquisite work of art, this would look fantastic BIG….. and the music to go with is very beautiful, the colour of fire seems really fit for this image, I Love It. I have a poster over my bed with a beautiful Indian Navajo Lady standing on a rock. It’s an Indian Prophecy which reads:
    Only after the last Tree has been cut down
    Only after the last River has been poisoned
    Only after the last Fish has been caught
    Only then will you find that money cannot be eaten.

    How so very true….. we should listen xo

  • I am most pleased you took careful and thought in your response and it moved you to do so, and the words you shared with me are so true and I appreciate you leaving them with me to think over and reflect – Peace to you Josie
