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.

Destructive Thoughts

"If you want to give life to the mind of Tao, you must first cause the human mentality to die. When the human mentality dies, the whole gang of pillagers dies of itself like a snake without a head. When it has been destroyed to the point where there is nothing more to destroy, the mind of Tao gradually comes to life and sane energy gradually returns."
-- Liu I-ming (Thomas Cleary)

Each time I recycle a destructive thought,
it is distilled to a more potent poison.
Choose your Nectar.

We have two tiers, we could call them, and I believe they are more interconnected and perhaps of the same origin anyway. In an attempt--no not attempt--in an ongoing process of de-dualizing my thinking, feeling, living, dieing and so on, I can "see" the Yin/Yang of my thoughts and The Tao's Thoughts. I can see the Universal in the particular and the particular in the Universal. That's not new, of course, and it is actually a Max Weber theory for the study of culture and society. Social Science. Anyway, I agree that "my" thoughts are less controlled by a "me" than I may believe; however, I am and that is, so what am I to do if I don't think for myself about myself and "my" Self? Oy! I just messed myself up here real bad. Sorry 'bout that. I must think some more! May all your thoughts be in balanced precision and harmony with Tao--Always, Arrow
