Ides of March walk 2013


Occupy Walk USA at Fort Defiance, Arizona in solidarity with the Navajo Nation

April 27th and 28th 2012, Occupy Walk USA will be going to the Navajo council meeting in Fort Defiance AZ the Navajo nation president will be there to explain the water deal that will take the water from here and give it to Phoenix. Tuscan, L.A. and San Diego

Occupy Walk USA team members will need a hotel room donated for this outreach. They have been walking in the desert for several days and need to make themselves presentable  before meeting the Navajo president. There is a local motel named Navajo Inn, the room fee is $70.00  please help us!

This outreach event will be ustreamed and recorded plus there could be a protest before the meeting.

Several young activists have been following the  Navajoland president around and causing some trouble for him so much that 2 weeks ago they had a swat team on too of the buildings next to the chapter house to be sure no violence happened.

Tomorrow should be a fun day and a great outreach day. Please help! Donate here: www.wepay.com/donations/walk-across-america

We are hoping to get the Native Americans on board with Occupy — they are the original “occupiers” of the United States of America.

 Today’s event will start @4pm Mountain Time today (3pm Pacific Time) Tune in to our Ustream  at http://www.ustream.tv/channel/p91fun (depends on connectivity whether this event will be livestreamed today).

Check out Joshua Tree National Park

For a first-time visitor the desert may appear bleak and drab. Viewed from the road, the desert only hints at its vitality. Closer examination reveals a fascinating variety of plants and animals. A rich cultural history and surreal geologic features add to the attraction of this place.

Two deserts, two large ecosystems whose characteristics are determined primarily by elevation, come together at Joshua Tree National Park. Below 3,000 feet, the Colorado Desert encompasses the eastern part of the park and features natural gardens of creosote bush, ocotillo, and cholla cactus. The higher, moister, and slightly cooler Mojave Desert is the special habitat of the Joshua tree. In addition to Joshua tree forests, the western part of the park also includes some of the most interesting geologic displays found in California’s deserts. Five fan palm oases also dot
the park, indicating those few areas where water occurs naturally and wildlife abounds.

Key Questions

What is asked of you?
What are you investing in?


‘Gathering, creating success.
The king enters his temple.
Fruitful to see great people, creating success.
Constancy bears fruit.
Using great sacrificial animals: good fortune.
Fruitful to have a direction to go.’

The old character for ‘Gathering’ shows people gathered like grass, or perhaps gathered to bring in the harvest: they have a shared identity, and invest together for a purpose, looking for what will bear fruit. Sometimes this is an external gathering, sometimes an internal one – collecting yourself and integrating your many roles and strengths, getting yourself together. Many people, roles, energies and issues are concentrated in this single focal point.

The king enters his temple to connect his people with the ancestral spirits. This is a time to strengthen shared roots, and understand mundane daily activities as part of a larger story and identity that gives them meaning.With this connection made, it is time to see great people. Originally this might have meant consulting with diviners, to ensure your offerings were made in harmony with the time and the spirits. Seeing great people (whether in the flesh or with your inner vision) gives you longer- term guidance to align your efforts with your purpose. Then a steady persistence will bear fruit. And you are making great efforts – and an act of faith – investing the best you have in this gathering. You need those good, deep roots, and clear-sighted guidance, and you need to know where you are going with it all.


‘Lake higher than the earth: Gathering.
A noble one sets aside weapons and tools, and warns against the unexpected.’

We should be careful not to let anything get out of hand and foresee possible misfortune in advance.
