This may seem obvious to some, but I am going to say it anyway- Standing Rock cannot lose now. There is too much pressure, coming from to many angle for this movement to fail. The banks that financially support the pipeline are being boycotted. The police force that are working against the peaceful protests are being threatened by international law and potential imprisonment for their part in it. The environmentalists are showing us how this will damage the ecosystem. Celebrities are turning up in force to show support. The movement, which would have partially been missed if it was not for the force of alternative media, has gained a life force of its own that will not be stopped.
But while Standing Rock is important, this issue is so much bigger than Standing Rock. In 1954 Roger Bannister broke the record for the 4 minute mile, something that at the time was thought to be impossible. Once he done this 46 days later someone broke his record. To this day 4518 and counting have run a mile in under 4 minutes. The world record is Hicham El Guerrouj with his time of 3:43.13. 17 seconds off of the impossible 4 minutes.
This is a metaphor for Standing Rock, because once we win at standing rock, everyone will see the possibilities. But not just the possibilities, the possibilities we can achieve in peaceful action. There is a shift in consciousness happening now and the light forces are winning.
The reason- because light forces have and always will be more powerful than the dark oppressive ones.
You can always get rid of the darkness by shining a light on it, however darkness cannot dim the shine of the light. Light is not a lack of darkness and can stand alone, however darkness needs the light to stay away for it’s survival.
We have not been shining our lights however we always have the ability to light the candle, switch on the torch or light the fire. Occasionally there will be shadows and this is something we have to accept. However the shadows can always be removed by shining the light on them.
This is why this movement will win, we are starting to shine our lights!
