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.

Liu Xiaogan / Naturalness,
For one to genuinely live a life in accordance with naturalness, it is necessary, on the one hand, to give up interfering with other people and things, and on the other hand, to prevent other people and things from disturbing or interfering with oneself... Actually, all human difficulties - with the exception of natural disasters such as flood and drought - basically result from the desire of some people to impose by force their virtue, ideals, values, interests, or beliefs upon others. Regardless of whether or not these things being imposed upon others are good or bad, the attempt to impose them always results in disaster.
...Naturalness not only excludes the interference of external forces, but also excludes a sudden transformation resulting from any cause.
...Although things developed by natural means can encounter various problems, they are generally speaking seldom subject to large-scale disturbances or man-made disasters, whereas things contrived through the conscious effort of human beings are less stable: although they can expand quickly to encompass the globe, they can also fall apart in an instant.
