ABOUT THUNDERHANDS



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.

The Taoist Warrior


The Taoist warrior, speaks only to guide.
The Taoist warrior, prefers silence because
his guidance often falls on deaf ears, and so he leads by example. The Taoist warrior realizes the sword of no sword.
The Taoist warrior cares not for the mundane and trivial
of which most of the world is comprised, excepting nature.
The Taoist warrior realizes that concepts of right and wrong
are just that, concepts. The Taoist warrior cuts to the core without touching the bone. The Taoist warrior is not concerned with morality and right and wrong, because one mans right is another man's wrong, and one mans morality is another mans immorality. The Taoist warrior realizes the past and future are a foggy mist that can't be grasped. The Taoist warrior realizes all wars and enemies are generated from within. The Taoist warrior answers to no one, but walks with the Tao, which doesn't require answers, or assign blame. The Taoist Warrior realizes guilt, fear, and anger are a figment of the mind generated by earthly concepts and conditioning. The Taoist warrior prefers nature and living alone. The Taoist warrior, is a spiritual warrior and a spiritual man. The Taoist warrior is perfect in that he is not perfect according to the ways of the world. The Taoist warrior is a traveler and wanderer, within and without. The Taoist warrior is often mistaken for having a cold heart, because he realizes detachment is true compassion, for self and others. The Taoist warrior is a calling few can comprehend, for how can the Tao be comprehended. The Taoist warrior doesn't comprehend, the Taoist warrior just is. The Taoist warrior realizes that he doesn't know, and that not knowing is the way of realization. The Taoist warrior, can seem like a contradiction to others, for all things change and he flows with the change. This is called walking with the Tao!
