About Me: "Wakiya" (Thunder)
I am a Tribal, Musician, Writer, Artist. I try to walk the path and have studied the tradition of the "Wisdom keepers" like Lame Deer, Fools Crow, Black Elk, and Rolling Thunder from the tribes of this region, and Lao Tzu, Buddha, Bodhidharma, Yeshua, and other enlightened ones from the many various tribes of the earth. I understand the worlds religions and belief systems, and realize the division this can cause by the lack of understanding the "real message" from the Masters. My intention, and life's prayer is to try to live in harmony with Grandmother Earth, Grandfather sky, (Nature) and "the spirit that moves in all things," and help in any way I can to build a bridge between all men and tribes so they can walk their path in a manner that will benefit themselves, the Earth and others. I open up, and ask Great Spirit, The creator, The Tao, The Universe, to work and direct healing and positive energy through me by different means, like the Flute, drums, Words, Prayer, and Touch. I try to be loving and accept others from the heart, and practice forgiveness. I honor all people, the winged one's, and four legged ones considering us all equal, not one being above another. I honor the bountiful Harvest from Mother earth in the form of plant life, water, air and herbs which sustain our oneness with her. I pray all tribes should re-unite as one, so we may protect the planet and live in harmony. Within you, without you.

Life is a journey
Like a good friend said to me today. "It's not the negatives and the positives that define life. They might make life more interesting, and bring out different aspects, but its all about the journey." We truly are wanderers or travelers on this road we call life. The bumps in the road definitely push us toward a more reflective mode. But no matter what comes our way we have to be flexible and flow around the obstacles, instead of beating our head against them. It's this allowing the flow of the river to push us along, that puts us in touch with the Tao and Great Spirit. When I was a pilot and flight instructor, the first instinct when you hit turbulence is to fight it. But the best method to get out of that situation, is not to fight it or panic. It.s funny how not fighting things works better then fighting. It all about resistance. Just like electricity flowing through a wire. The wire causes resistance and stops the energy from flowing as freely. But when lightening come from the sky there is no resistance. Let your life be without resistance to the natural energy, or chi surrounding us and life in general. Be like lightening. And walk what the Native American calls the red road.
