Cante Ista


Cante Ishta: Prose to Break Your Knows

Note: Cante Ista (shon-TAY eesh-TAH) is a Lakota term that points to inner seeing, and/or the ability to look within or beyond. Literally, it means “the eye of the heart.”


Cante Ista.


To step into my alter-egos…

Healer

Feeler

God-love dealer

And

Megatronic Conduit

of the

Energetic Feels…


I have to release the…

Sugary

Showy

And

Barometric Gauge drop

Blow-y

Altars to my ego:


Pride

Arrogance

Rage

And

Any single-serving self-hood

That dumbs me down


Cante Ista.


Blinded by the I’s

One can only truly

Sea

With Inner Eyes


Within, Arise


Cante Ista.


Get out of your dome

It’s nothing but foam.

That weakness will leave

If you let it alone.


This is the way we conduit.


Cante Ista.
