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.

"If we examine the teachings of the Chinese Zen masters, we find that
their Buddhism was by no means an escape from pain. Thus a disciple
came to his master and asked, 'It is terribly hot, and how shall we
escape the heat?' And at once the answer came, 'Let us go down to the
bottom of the furnace.' So the perplexed disciple asked again, 'But in
the furnace how shall we escape the scorching fire?' To which he
received the surprising reply, 'No further pains will harass you.' This
seems to be another way of saying that evil is overcome by acceptance as
distinct from denial. Thus, if you try to avoid death you enter a
living death, for life only lives, only moves, because it is at every
moment dying. The more you run away from your shadow, the faster it
follows, and it does not cease to exist because you turn around and look
the other way."

From the book, The Modern Mystic, A New Collection of The Early Writings
of Allan Watts
