Ghost Dancer’s Holiday Message

Ghost Dancer

December 2014 – During this season of holidays so many people celebrate whatever beliefs and customs they choose. It is especially important that all people respect everyone else’s beliefs and remember the main purpose for all is to share and celebrate LOVE; to share the Love of Family, of Life, and being given so much to enjoy.

Many people don’t have as many material things as others and many people don’t value what others value. I believe the best gift everyone should want to give, receive, and understand is LOVE! Love is what is given to us each day by Spirit to give us Life, the gifts to breathe, drink, eat, and so much more.

We all need and want to be loved; we should all want to give love as well. Love is something we can give so freely and it doesn’t get measured by dollar value or personal gain value, or with strings attached. Love is given just as it is given to us, with true heartfelt of wanting to do so!  So when you enjoy those meals, the gifts, the family or friends or even strangers, open your heart and let the love radiate from you.

When you see the trees or plants, the waters of streams, rivers, lakes, oceans and even the rain, just remember how these are given to you in love. When we see the birds singing and flying, they are happy and given love to. When you see the puppy or kitten or any other living being, just remember these were all created and born in love – the Love of Spirit! 

Let us cherish each moment with our families and friends; put aside any and all petty disagreements, bad feelings, or attitudes and enjoy just being in the moment with the Love of them being there with you, for that is a precious gift!

With LOVE to all of you! Ghost

I am an elder in my 9th decade. I have lived an ordinary life, I’ve done all the ordinary and expected things, went to school, got married, raised a family, tried to be a good person. Throughout this life I have also been a seeker, an outsider by nature, always looking through cracks in the fences of life, questioning, challenging, learning, trying to make sense of the world and its conventions. Then in my golden years, as I sought to find meaning in my existence, some unexpected things happened and I’ve since learned it took a lifetime to prepare me for the challenge to come. My journey – indeed my calling - led me to come to know a remarkable man who happened to be an inmate in federal prison. Nothing could have been more foreign to my personal experience. GHOST DANCER Communicating daily for nearly nine years I had the opportunity to walk many paths with Ghost discussing our thoughts on many common interests with candor and respect. With enormous generosity Ghost has allowed me to share his wisdom and knowledge of his Native American heritage on Journeys of the Spirit. Over time, Ghost gradually revealed his life story in small bits, like scrambled pieces of some gigantic puzzle. Now, after spending more than 40 years in prison, Ghost Dancer is at last free and ready to tell his amazing personal story. As the saying goes, “you can’t make this stuff up” and as his friend and editor I can say this is a story so big that even after working with him for nearly nine years, I continue to be astonished as he shares new details my mind simply could never imagine. From the very first chapter, Ghost leads us on his journey and invites us to walk with him on his Nene Cate (Red Road). From the day he was born, a happy, loving gifted child, he endured heartbreaking sorrows, betrayals and exploitations. Through it all, Ghost fought a system determined to destroy him by any means, as he struggled to remain true to his calling. Through Ghost Dancer I also met and came to know Walks On The Grass, another federal prisoner whose story is also compelling even though very different. In Journeys of the Spirit, Walks has shared his decades-long journey from deep addiction to wholeness in LONG ROAD HOME and shared other bits of his story in ALONG THE WAY. Now as he approaches his August release into this crazy world of 2022 Walks shares his the thoughts and misgivings as he counts down to the big day in LIGHTS IN THE DISTANCE.
