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 Church Thing
The Church Thing.
I have nothing against the Bible because it contains some of Yeshuas teachings, but the bible when it was codified by Constantine in 325 A.D. was manipulated by him so that all books or codices that had anything to do with God being within you and the kingdom being within you were thrown out. The gospel books are probably not written by who they say they are and or have been seriously tampered with. That being said the true meaning of Yeshua (Jesus) or Yehoshua's (Joshua) words and advice still come shining through because they couldn't throw the baby out with the bath water. And later on certain things were discovered like the dead sea scrolls and the Nag Hammadi find that were to bring us such "Gnostic" scrolls ( Gnostic meaning hidden knowledge) as The book of Thomas. That book is a confirmation of the true teachings of Yeshua. That book is just his sayings and not any church dogma that was later added. There is also the book of "Q" which is a manuscript they believe that most of the gospels were taken from.
My point with all this is that along with other spiritual books,,,I truly have studied the bible and Jesus' saying for years. I love Jesus, and his spirit is strong, it comes through me when needed. Churches are gross distortions of the real message, in fact most of organized religion is a man made idea originating with the church of Rome to exert control over the masses by Guilt, Fear, and punishment. They (Christians) also place much importance on exterminating any belief (native American, Muslim,or whoever) that is not one they made up. So we have mass genocide of peoples i.e. the crusades, the killing of Native Americans, The inquisition and many more atrocities.
Christians and especially evangelicals go against everything that Christ ever taught. In fact they are just the opposite of what he taught which makes them what? Anti - Christ,,,,,"many false prophets will come in my name" They are wolves in sheep's clothing. Now yes there are good people (brainwashed or miss-guided) that are "Christians" and some of the Churches do good things like helping others in need. But on the other hand are they destroying them mentally with their false teachings and so-called truths? There is no hell or hell fire,,,that was added by Dante in times past (Dante's inferno) and the church took what he meant as a joke and incorporated it into their teachings.
On "Missionary work" (Hate that word or phrase) they get huge tax breaks for their work....so what is the real motive. Plus look what they did to the native American in the name of their missionary work. There is always corruption at the top..the whole thing is corrupted. All of religion is corrupt at the top. Every time an enlightened master appears to help or direct,,,some jack-off wants to start a religion or organization around him after he dies, so they can glorify themselves or control others. Buddha even said. "If you see the Buddha on the road slay him!" Meaning the same thing as wolves in sheep's clothing. Don't listen to people if they claim to have "The truth" run away as fast as you can and don't be associated with them. Be a free spirit...it's funny because Christ said I am the mediator or the way and yet churches want to step in and say..yea but you need us to get to the mediator..."WRONG"
So the bottom line is they have made God out as this big entity or person somewhere up in the Heavens with his 'Son" sitting by his side ready to exterminate non-believers....where is the love in that? Where is the Mercy in that? Small minded revengeful tripe is what it is! How dare they lower the creative intelligence, The Tao, The great mystery to such a mundane level as being angry and vengeful. If that is what their God is,,,It's in their mind, Its them not the supreme intelligence. Not pure love, not anything to do with being enlightened. PERIOD!! Christianity as we know it,,, not only isn't the only way...it's not the way. If you love Christ love him in your heart, and love what he really taught. Embrace him,, not some phony, false representation of him. Call yourself a Disciple of Christ....Not a Christian..Just like you would be a disciple of any enlightened one if you so choose. The best church in the world, or cathedral, is nature and its forests, no lies there! Of course if (Christianity or church) that's your path, walk it, I am not here to stop you or destroy your beliefs and Faith. Just presenting a few facts and viewpoints to consider.
