  1. Thank you for the well composed site on Nominees Announced for Native American Music Awards.

    It is all too easy, and not supportive of real balance, to recall the injuries of the past and take on the feathers of the victim phoenix; a sorry and sickly bird of delusion.

    The POWER of real energy, now standing support to the presence of real Power in The People, cannot express the "feeling-energy" of victim. It is not permitted to render that into manifest expression any more; not since the commencement of 2009.

    Now, only the POWER of real balance is in manifest expression with The People.

    Will it be coming first through the music? I would look for it there.

    What does your Real voice-within speak of, what does it deliver as your individual Inspiration? Will your own REAL energy support the manifest expression of that Inspiration? Yes, because that Inspiration from the real of you will support your real balance.

    It is The People who are best attuned to discern real Inspiration, best attuned to hearing their voice-within, best acculturated to following that guidance from their real-self. It is above all the heritage of your culture.

    Your REAL energy is now only permitted to support your real balance. That is why the POWER of energy can stand and is standing with The People.
    Respectfully your,
    the IRF

  14. I think what you said made a great deal of sense.
    But, what about this? suppose you wrote a catchier title?
    I mean, I don't want to tell you how to run your website, however what if you added something that makes people desire more? I mean "Nominees Announced for Native American Music Awards" is a little vanilla. You could glance at Yahoo's home page and see how they write article headlines to
    get viewers to click. You might add a video or a picture
    or two to grab readers interested about everything've written. Just my opinion, it would make your website a little livelier.
