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.

It's all about internal strength, Honor, true humility, Not if you win or lose, live or die etc. It's how you live your life. Not worrying about it. Not considering so much about right and wrongs on the outside, or what someone else is doing that may be right or wrong. Strengthen the inner, refuse to do battle with the opponents within and without so to speak, refuse to confront the oncoming thrust of the sword, better to step aside and watch it miss it's mark..or better yet take no thought on it. Hold no malice or anger for anything. Keep working on that inner light or the superior self because that serves the better good. Work towards peace and harmony within and it will be reflected without. Sometimes you can win a battle but that doesn't mean you win the war. Peace and harmony within brings good fortune for all concerned. It's about motive, we bring sorrow on ourselves and others by not being true to our higher self or good. It's like practicing the martial arts for glory and ego, or practicing it to strengthen mind, body, spirit and to build character and humility. Its not about winning even though you know you can. No matter what might face us, whether it be loneliness or relationships and maybe any kind of hardship. If we have that internal strength and we walk with the sage, everything will be ok,,as within so without...truly. These words are easier to say, then put into practice. And I guess that should be our goal,,maybe we can't be perfect but we can work towards an ideal. Sometimes it does take a change in attitude or events that cause a turning point in our lives,
