The East Bully wants to control our spirit.  They may be leaders of cults that dominate people and demand no communication with non-members, or they may be dictators who force us to abandon our Sacred Dream, the plan our soul made for this life, in order to serve them or adhere to their standards.


Freedom House, a non-governmental agency with headquarters in Washington, D.C. states that as of June 1st 2015, two-thirds of the world’s people live under a dictatorship.  These rulers use West Bullies to dominate people, enforce their rule, and maintain control.  Through their web of lies, they never let us realize our true vision for freedom and fulfill our Sacred Dream.  They use our low self-esteem to sculpt us into complacent comrades.  In our semi-conscious state, we fall for their lies and believe they have our best interests at heart.


As long as our connection to the Great Spirit is broken, we are dazed, anesthetized, and insensitive.  We were promised a better life, more money, and opportunities for success, and so we believe what we had been told and follow these leaders.  We did not examine their actions to make sure they were in line with their words.  We do not take the time to make sure they “walked their talk.”  When we take them at their word we give away our power to them.


Sun Tzu wrote in The Art of War “The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.”


There are many people today that believe we are being controlled or ruled by a shadow government, a cabal, which manipulates economies, governments, and creates wars for ulterior motives.  Some may call it the Illuminati; others may have another name for it.  If this were the case, they would be following the instructions of Sun Tzu.  They would be overpowering us without firing a single round.


When we anesthetize ourselves with drugs, especially the ones given to us by the contemporary mental health care system, we are making ourselves emotionless.  This allows us to be manipulated.  We can be coerced into things we might not normally consider because we have turned off our warning system.  We have severed ties with our inner personas.  Our inner elders cannot reach us to warn us of impending doom because we have allowed them to be silenced.  The drugs make it impossible to hear their advice or even their shouted attempts to stop us from following the herd over the cliff.


Today we see many people thrown into the mental health care system against their will because they have stood up for something.  These people are hospitalized and told that if they do not take the medications the doctor is prescribing, they will not be released.  Careful follow-up is done with these people to assure their compliance.  To be sure, some of these people are in need of true assistance, but anesthetizing their emotions with drugs for years on end is not helping them to advance down the path their soul planned for this life.


These people who are thrown into the system without a choice may have been fighting a true injustice in a way that any normal person would, with anger and fervor.  People that would behave in a similar fashion, or worse, are in charge of deciding if this person should be held against their will for an extended period of time even though they have not broken the law.  This is a dangerous practice that strips the rights away from countless individuals and forces them on drugs that debilitate them and keep them from communicating with their inner personas and fulfilling their Sacred Dream.  These suppressors are true East Bullies and if there is a cabal hoping to keep us unaware, this would be one way they could continue to maintain power.


Other examples of this type of bully include extremely religious parents who discipline their children physically if they do not adhere to a strict code of beliefs.


The goal of these bullies, even if they are unaware of it, is to keep you from following your Sacred Dream because they don’t know their own.  When they see someone who is following their “path with heart” they are threatened because it makes them feel insecure and aware of what they do not know.  Rather than trying to learn from what they see, they challenge our beliefs.  By appealing to the “wounded child” in all of us, the part that craves the attention and approval of others, they can throw us off balance and we may find ourselves being manipulative or seeking revenge.


Because these people are in positions of power, they have the ability to restrict our freedom, control our Sacred Dream, and impact not only our daily life experience but our very spirit.  They can cause us to lose hope, our will, and give up.  This complacency will cause us to remain asleep, a victim, and just another sheep following orders.


In the South of the North Wheel of Bullies are communists.  All property is owned in common.  People starve because private farming is outlawed and items owned individually are removed by force to give to the community.  No one cares to do their job well because they are not rewarded accordingly, so manufactured items often don’t work properly.  The Communist Manifesto states the objective of communism is to make all governments communist.  The government doesn’t care about the environment and will do whatever it takes to produce goods and energy with no regard for peoples’ health.


Communism was founded on the belief that it would make everyone equal and of the same class, but in reality, the government becomes the upper class and everyone else is in the lower class, leaving no middle class.  Intellectuals are seen as enemies.  The Khmer Rouge in Cambodia was so anti-technology that many people were murdered simply for wearing glasses.  In the name of communism, eighty-five million people were murdered in the 20th century alone.


Dictators sit in the West of the North Wheel of Bullies.  In a dictatorship, absolute power and control rest in the hands of only one person.  While this type of government is the most efficient at making decisions, because they are all made by only one person, they result in brutally oppressive behavior.  The entire country is at the mercy of one bully.


Totalitarian regimes sit in the North of the North Wheel of Bullies.  Totalitarianism aspires to reduce the people it rules to faceless masses, deprived of individuality.  The goal is domination by a government of all political, social, and economic activities in a nation. Totalitarianism is a phenomenon of the twentieth century: earlier forms of despotism and autocracy lacked the technical capacity to control every aspect of life. People must adhere to the philosophies and beliefs of the state under a totalitarian regime.


Authoritarianism sits in the East of the North Wheel of Bullies.  Communism, socialism, and dictatorships all are forms of authoritarianism.  Monarchies are naturally authoritarian and there have been more of these types of governments throughout history than any other.


These types of bullies thrive on power.  They themselves are usually very repressed.  The lives of many princes and princesses were very sheltered and so their limited experiences have made it difficult for them to learn.  Quite often they know of no other way to approach life and so they use force to maintain control.


When we want more money and a better way of life we are opening ourselves up to the possibility of being dominated by any one of the East Bullies.  Simply by promising more jobs, higher wages, safer streets, and more opportunities many dictators have been given complete control.


When these bullies go unchecked, they will have strong impacts on our physical world.  Not only will our livelihood be affected, but our health and safety can be jeopardized.  These bullies impact all arenas of our life:  family, society, religion, and the economy.


These bullies call for extreme measures.  New Hampshire’s motto “Live free or die” embodies the attitude and approach necessary to address these bullies.  Depending on the level of tyranny, one must choose fight or flight.  The North Bully wants to control us, take away our freedoms and choices, and use us as a resource to fulfill their own personal greedy goals.


These bullies control us by throwing off our timing and disrupting our patterns.  For example, Hitler’s soldiers kept people moving quickly from place to place so the people didn’t have time to think or prepare.  In this way, they were kept off balance and easier to manipulate.


When confronted with an East Bully, we must either become a refugee or fight for our freedom.  It is the quality of life that is worth fighting for, the freedom to raise our children to follow their Sacred Dream.  In Native American culture we have always known that there are causes worth dying for and when we see that fighting is necessary to secure a future for our children and their children, we have a saying; “It is a good day to die.”





  1. I enjoyed reading this and look forward to reading more of your posts. Two questions come to mind and I apologize if I would find the answers to them if I simply kept reading more of your work. First: How is the geographic positioning of the bullies you describe important? You could have just said that there are four kinds of government bullies without mentioning points of the compass, but you didn’t. How do the compass points effect things? Second: When dealing with the Dictator (East Bully) you give two choices, flee or fight to the death. Aren’t there other options? In Western culture, we give lip service to “The pen is mightier than the sword”. As a writer and performer, you must buy into that to some extent as well. But does that only reflect the culture you experienced from growing up in modern America? Is there any room for mockery and satire in the ancient wisdom?


    1. Thank you for reading my blog and for your thoughtful questions. The directions refer to the Wheel of Life teaching, the primary key for understanding Native American traditional lessons. As you guessed, there is more on this elsewhere in my blog. They are not so much geographical as they are philosophical. Native American tradition ascribes different attributes to the cardinal and non-cardinal directions. This allows one to infer even more information than just the most apparent. To address your second question, I should have specified that one should either flee or be PREPARED to fight to the death. We always hope it does not come to that point! I certainly believe that the pen is mightier than the sword, but one must be prepared to back up their words if necessary. When we take our first step in standing up, rather than fleeing, we must be aware that this could mean we may have to “walk our talk” and follow this road to the “dead” end. In other words, we must know that once we speak up, we have drawn a line in the sand and we cannot go back to pretending to be ignorant. This decision is a brave one. Fighting with words can bring death just as surely as can fighting with a sword. And for your final question, mockery and satire are honored traditions in my culture. The clown kachinas, controlled folly, and the trickster coyote are all revered for the way they make us laugh at ourselves and trick us into learning. Thank you again for your thoughtful words!
