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.

Present Moment

"Life is available only in the present moment.' This is a simple
teaching of the Buddha, but very deep. If someone asked you, Has the
best moment of your life arrived yet? Many of you would probably
say that the best moment of your life has not yet come. We all have a
tendency to believe that the best moment of our lives has not yet
come, but that it will come very soon. But if we continue to live in
the same way, waiting for the best moment to arrive, then the best
moment will never arrive.
You can open your eyes, you can see the sunshine, the wonderful
vegetation, your friends and relatives around you. This is the best
moment of your life."

-Thich Nhat Hanh
