Standing Rock Solid

What Cheer, Netop?




so calld September 27, 2016  ~  Narragansett Bay Area


THOUSANDS are gathered on plains land of the Standing Rock Sioux, protecting clean water.  Vital to this is preventing the Black Snake known as the Dakota Access Pipeline from crossing the Missouri River.  Oil pipelines have a history of failure and disastrous spills; as do tanker ships, offshore drilling rigs, rail cars, fracking water, coal ponds, shaft mines…  Many sources of energy are available, which do not threaten water, soil, or air.  Clearly it is not worthy to risk spoiling the clarity of our central rivers for generations.

This pipeline is ‘justified’ economically and approved easily, however, it should be quite clear that the protection of clean water is imperative beyond anything to do with political structures.  The two sides of this debate are being put into focus.  One choice is to continue resource extraction without concern; the other is a commitment to doing what is right for All Life, today, and for all time.  To honor the Earth, home of all physical life, as our Mother, we choose to care for each living thing.  Life is possible without the destruction in perpetuating modern lifestyles; we must be willing to change our lifestyles as well. Choose completely: Life / Death, Water / Oil, Give / Take, Love / Hate.  Each must choose forces to serve and express. Let us choose Good.

Free Providence, Spiritual Society, is founded on principles of Soul Liberty, Peace, and Truth.  We carry the legacy of Providence, as one christian settlement established in honest comity with indigenous tribes of Turtle Island, known by the willing gift of safe haven land from Canonicus and Narragansett people to Roger Williams and English companions.  We affirm that this way of peace may have been known across all the Americas; [yet sadly the Fat Taker culture, and modern U.S. arms, through thievery, deception, and violence, have overshadowed] the beacon of freedom which America may have been, and which, we declare, it still yet may be; and here we are now, to make this so, by committing our steadfast alignment with Earth; Mitakuye Oyasin.

We Declare that the crude extraction of resources is not in alignment with Life, and all processes now known to harm Life shall be readily decommissioned.  There are many ways to achieve the energetic benefits we now get from oil, less the environmental damage!  Only energy sources which are safe for Life will be considered. All are expected to Cause No Harm. This is the basis of Law. Environmental disasters cause such a wave of damage, there is no way of counting it. The harm unfathomable, our Law abhors it. Those pursuing this pipeline should understand their actions are unlawful and all good people and courts in the world may consider that the value of fracked sludge will never surpass FLOWING CLEAN WATER!  WATER IS LIFE!!

We humbly offer our support, gratitude, and friendship.

my friends,

Autumnal Equinox  ~~  What Cheer, Netop?




Providence speaks as the divine gift arriving when called for.

Providence is known by its swell of imagination creation.

We are called now to renew the intention of Providence

Leaving off the Plantations and setting Rhode Island aside.


BE IT KNOWN to all present at once on the Earth, the truth of PROVIDENCE will be!  BEING THAT this revolving planet will supply ALL if we know and follow the cyclic rhythms, and balance of needs.

FOLLOWING THIS trust in divine creation, we proclaim the return to a state of Love and care for all, cultivating our global home to the ideal Garden.

WE STAND to honor Life, and do what is right.  We honor each other as we honor our dreams; encouraging to go through and make it.  Thriving community inspiration, we form Free Providence, a Spiritual Society.


Providence embodies a set of values we each know in unique ways.  Yet we all may agree on basic principles: free thought, speaking truth; there are more.  As a Spiritual Society, Free Providence creates a contextual space where members engage and exchange thought and goods, abiding by principles.

Within a clear space, we choose natural law and equity, not coded regulation.

All Members are Free to create, be, offer and receive, within this agreement.


Let us Advance to a new wave of self-governing.  Let ALL compare their intent for free living with the truth of the course we tread; does this way lead where we hope to go?  Recall Providence is the harbor prepared to receive you, washed as it were in seas of confusion.  Dissolving fog, we beam bright light from rock, that land is ahead, now you know where you are.  Choose to come ashore as one of Free Providence members, as you trust and accept peace, brotherhood, mutual aid, respect, and ultimate responsibility.  Assessing who we are, we may renew ourselves, and change our story to one of fellowship and accomplishment of our living dreams.  May it be one in

Free Providence.


Truly,   MichaeL pauL GirouX
