A GOOD DAY TO DIE

In the back of our minds, most of us keeps a safety net, an escape route, a crutch; something or someone to turn to in bad times. This fallback may seem a blessing, but this feeling of safety is a curse. When not up against a real challenge, a mental and physical lethargy overcomes us. If the situation were life or death, your moves would be more certain. Place yourself where your back is against a wall and you need to fight to make it out alive. With no way to retreat or surrender, a person will fight with double even triple the spirit then if you had other options. Our own demise is so frightening, a truth so immense it’s almost impossible to fathom. Most avoid thinking about it. Keeping it at a distance may seem ideal for comfort, but at a horrible price. An illusion of limitless time, consequently leading to a lack of taking everyday life seriously. Life has more meaning in the face of death. If you can’t afford to lose you won’t ! Understand your days are numbered. You can choose to spend them half-hearted or you can choose to live in the spirit of Crazy Horse. This could be the last throw of the dice. Make it count.

CHIEF TILL I DIE

It is a power move to be respectful and foolish to be arrogant. Making enemies by unnecessary rudeness is just as suicidal an action as setting your own house on fire. Curtesy is like money. Counterfeit dollars with which it is foolish to be stingy. A wise man will be generous in the use of it. Being respectful will make people cooperative even though they are malevolent. Arrogance will make you forget your manners and this will cause you to lose the respect of those around you. It’s not about ethics, it’s about effective action. Seemingly virtuous men ruthlessly pursue their own ends while being praised by victims for never being in the wrong. Don’t confuse curtesy with weakness, being insecure. It is not a weakness to project confidence with respect. When making power moves learn to judge your actions by the long term effects they have on people. By acting regally and confident of your swagger, you make yourself seemed destined to wear a crown. Arrogance may seem the kings entitlement, but in fact it betrays insecurity, the very opposite of a royal demeanor. Never show doubt. Never lose dignity beneath the eagle feathers or they won’t fit. Let all your actions, even though they are not those of a king, be worthy of a chief!

GREAT MYSTERY

Most cultures of the world recognize a creator. Though they differ regarding his identity and attributes, many believe thigs happen for a reason. Once great mystery of religion is why an omnipotent entity would allow suffering. God may mark the sparrows fall, but nevertheless lets him fall. The Universes’ destructive force is violent with both the blind forces of nature and the actions of the ruthless. The created Universe is huge, unthinkable ranges of time spanning distance. Galaxies coalesce out of clouds of dust drifting in a vast icy blackness of interstellar space. Stars ignite planets form and life begins. Eventually it’s all consumed in its own fire and returns to dust, ready for the cycle to begin again. Creation and destruction are equally necessary. Nature maintains this perfect balance; perfect discipline, perfect justice, perfect strength, perfect surrender, perfect detachment, perfect giving, perfect sacrifice, perfect conquest, perfect harmony, and perfect ruthlessness. These elements are indifferent to human judgement uncompromising with human standards. Take this example and possess the courage of action submissive or aggressive, ruthless or gentle, compassionate or dispassionate, yet always remaining vigorous active and disciplined.

2 MANY CHIEFS NOT ENUF NDNZ

We all think of ourselves as authorities; bosses not foot soldiers. This one man wolf pac ideology leads to putting your self-interests before those of the team. It takes a true leader to set the tone through personal example in a group atmosphere. Instead of pushing people from behind, make them run to keep up with you. Lead from the front and center. Let your squad see you in the trenches sacrificing for the cause. Traditional natives see their survival as tied to the success of the nation as a whole. The more they think of the people the less they thought of themselves. In this ideal wolf pac, selfishness will disgrace you in the eyes of your brothers. In unifying your own hordes, find exercises to increase confidence and solidarity. Set clear standards and very high expectations that few can reach. Chiefs must be grandeur in spirit never revealing any pettiness. Never think that you elevate yourself by humiliating others. Deception is your most important weapon. Learn always to take the indirect route, like the billiard ball that caroms several times before it hits its target. Strategies must be planned and developed in the least obvious way. It is dangerous to seem too power hungry. Be subtle with your actions; congenial yet cunning; democratic yet devious.

SUCKA FREE

You can judge a man by the enemies he makes and the company he keeps. It is by this association that people gain a solid reputation. Reputation is like magic, with a wave of its want it can double your strength, increased your presence, and create an aura around you that will instill respect without having to spend much energy. What people say about themselves means nothing. Truth lies in the effect they have on the world. Look at your actions the way others see them. Never attempt to convince people of anything. Ally yourself with the powerful and wise thus gaining endorsement from established authorities. Let it be understood how when sesame oil is mixed with roses and after it has been with roses for some time, it will cease to be sesame oil and is now called oil of roses. Beware the people who operate in a whirlwind of emotions, this manifest from an inward instability that radiates outward drawing disaster upon oneself. When you allow such people to operate, little by little, you will find your mind and time occupied by their problems. Never show you are offended by something. Overcome the tendency to react to things as they happen. Exposing this type of weakness often heralds a downfall. Cancer begins with a single cell. Remove it before it spreads beyond cure. There is only one solution to infection: Quarantine.

SHU!

Hey, I am currently in the SHU, aka as “the Hole” and will be for the next few months and possibly until my release. I have been stripped of everything but my commissary (IE: I am without access to a phone or email, so I can only write letters). Why am I in the SHU? Another inmate pulled “a move” and sucker punched me in front of staff and I defended myself. He didn’t want to be on “the compound” so he used me as a target…it is what it is…que sera sera. Anyway, I would really appreciate anyone writing me while I’m stuck in segregation/isolation. Than you in advance!!!

NEW BEGINNINGS

In aiming at the life of blessed ones, one of the simplest beginnings to be considered and rightly made is that which we all make every day- namely, the beginning of each day’s life. There is a sense in which every day may be regarded as the beginning of a new life in which one can think, act, and live newly, and in a wiser and better spirit. The right beginning of the day will be followed by cheerfulness permeating the household with a sunny influence, and the task and duties of the day will be undertaken in a strong and confident spirit, and the whole day will be well lived.

LIFE

I may not be someone's first choice, but I'm a great choice. I may not be rich, but I'm valuable. I don't pretend to be someone I'm not, because I'm good at being me. I might not be proud of some of the things I've done in the past, but I'm proud of who I am today. I may not be perfect, but I don't need to ... Take me as I am or watch me walk away.

FRIENDS

The meaning of friendship will vary; depending on who you ask. The reality is this: most people really have no idea what it is to be a friend because most people really don't have friends. Prison is a lonely and miserable place. It's also a beautiful and exposing venue. Prior to this incarceration, I believed I had many friends. This incarceration has humbled me by exposing the people I once surrounded myself with. I now know when you live a lavish lifestyle, you can have all the friends you can afford. Now, I look at my life and those who once surrounded me as a tree. In this analogy, I'm the tree. As you know, the tree has hundreds of thousands of leaves. Those leaves represent all the people I used to call my friends. Today, I understand it only takes a swift wind or a mild storm to shift those people out of your life. Even in a perfect climate, those relationships usually last one season before they fall to the side. Once all the leaves are gone you will still have the branches. These are the people you invite to your house for a cookout. These are the people you trust with your secrets. They are much more capable of withstanding a small storm and usually grow with you for more than one season. Even with this durability, a moderate tropical storm will snap the limbs from the tree and they too will disappear from your life. Last, there is the roots. These are the people who know you best. These are the people who will serve as bridesmaids and groomsmen in your wedding party. These are even the people that will serve as pallbearers when that fateful day comes. These are the people who you trust with your most intimate life details. These relationships nurture your soul and give meaning to your very existence. There is thousands of leaves. There is hundreds of branches. There is only a handful of roots. I want to surround myself with more roots. I'm through feeding all the leaves so they can enjoy life for a season. I'm through being the base that provides stability for all the branches so they an abandon me when the storm passes. I'm looking for some roots to surround myself with. I need someone who will be there when all the leaves and branches have blown away. If you're a root, I'd love to hear from you. If you're a leaf or a branch, this probably doesn't make much sense to you anyway. I'm a root. I'll be by your side no matter what. I'm looking for like-minded people to develop lifelong friendships with. I look forward to hearing from you. -Randy D. Pittman

I’m writing to say hi! Winter is my favorite time of the year, raining, lightning, the language of thunder. I’ll stay up late and write by candlelight, staring at the Moon. I’ve made progress with piano and guitar. I have 17 finished songs, mainly melancholic Black Metal. Our facility allows tablets. I get e-mails, pictures, 32 second videos from any one. More privileges like getting conjugal visits and earning time off have been given to me. Until I’m gone, I’ll be here writing. Rabbits and owls come by. I’ll write about the characteristics. I’m staring at the Moon and it’s awe strikingly bright for only reflecting the rays from the Sun. I wonder if others appreciate our existence how everything is vibration in constant motion rotating around the Sun and so on forever… How not one thing is solid, not us, not stone or any compressed element. There is always space between our atoms with the scientific progress the space between is still a prevailing mystery. 80% of the universe is the darkness beyond our constellations. Becoming aware is becoming alive, something similar I contemplate is the silence between sound I meditate when everyone is gone (asleep). The awareness to my pulse, my inhale, my exhale, my desires, the stillness of the silence is undivided attention to self… I try to express the importance of becoming aware of the existence… In my art, my writings and my music.
