When I was heading out to North Dakota I stopped near Fargo at an outdoor gear place. I was thinking about picking up a few things that I’d need for being at Standing Rock for two or three weeks (a machete, water purification tablets, a bladder for carrying water around, etc.) but I was also curious to see if I noticed something that I otherwise didn’t know I needed.

I’ve done breath work, dream analysis, meditation, et cetera. I’m following this path because I can feel and see changes happening in my life and in the lives of those around me and its powerful stuff.

Not that they weren’t doing enough. They just hadn’t gone off the high dive. I’ve been seeing the change as we live the words of Ghandi, and even some cool new products and businesses, but holy crap Chipotle just did a cannon ball into a pool that’s only had a little splashing.
