The Good Road & The Road of Difficulties...

"The good road and the road of difficulties you have made me cross; and where they cross that place is holy..." --- Black Elk - Sioux Holy Man

He and his people knew that road well from the warrior-holy man's youth when at 12 years old he witnessed the 'Battle at the Little Bighorn' firsthand, on into the beginnings of the 20th century where he saw his people struggling to make sense of 'a white man's world' penned up on arid, cold reservations. Today's world wants to see the road of life as a material highway and any left by its wayside in adversity must have failed or are not 'suited for modern success'. But as the American Indian knows so well, the 'real power and change of life' often doesn't happen until often 'uninvited hardship & adversity' is overcome. That is the real 'holy place' where the Great Spirit (God) crosses the road where a man is traveling in life. We can shun it, deny it and flee or we can meet it head on. Don't expect an audience and the world to be behind you. How well the Native American warriors knew. It was a lonely place, a cold, hungry, hard place (and for many a 'Trail of Tears') but it is where the battle is fought; lost or won. We do not ask for it but adversities spring up in every life for they come with it and in some harder than others. Western civilization wants to only amplify the material success and doesn't care by what road you came and what battles you fought along your highway to overcoming. It wants to bow to reputation and money as its standard, something Native Americans could not conceive as their world was not founded on it. But in art and music as in life; is it really the only measure of its worth? Today there are many in music and movies successful but when you listen or watch their work, something is missing (not all of course) If they have the fruits of success they say it doesn't matter as long as they sell. But it isn't just about that; and if someone has lasted the distance and withstood the trials of time and the road, we should stop and ask how and why.

That 'holy place' is where creation occurs where we meet our soul and the 'Soul of souls' and where the Great Spirit can enter and get a chance to voice his 'divine intelligence'. It is not just overcoming for money & success as important as that is, but establishing just whose voice we will let rule our inner world. The voice of never-satisfied material desires or that inner light that shines on the empty, hard places with life, spirit and victory. Don't expect the world to recognize that there is something that survives which will and then all those cherished bright noon-time memories of youthful experiences that have perished in hopeless despair of exile and darkness will return and fill your dreams with NEW LIFE and NEW THOUGHTS. And along that road we all travel and for those of us more solitary warriors lead through the deserts of 'our Lost Years' - we can know that "The Good Road and the Road of Difficulties" does lead to fulfillment and to a 'Ray of Hope' and new resolve to carry on....

YOU can HEAR parts 1&2 (as one file) of my latest composition/improv: THE GOOD ROAD & THE ROAD OF DIFFICULTIES at my CDbaby Artist Store

....and this story isn't finished yet - until you HEAR Part 3 of TheGoodRoad (coming later in December or early 2015 as a single download) where this story comes to some sort of resolution and peace....

“A man finishes his story….in the thoughts of tomorrow is the POWER to upheave the thought of today..." so my song. 'The Ultimate Connection' stated back in '89 (LISTEN HERE)
