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.

"In order to have compassion for others, we have to have compassion for
ourselves. In particular, to care about other people who are fearful,
angry, jealous, overpowered by addictions of all kinds, arrogant, proud,
miserly, selfish, mean- you name it- to have compassion and to care for these
people, means not to run from the pain of finding these things in ourselves."
~Pema Chodron

Beautiful. Beautiful picture with a water-like heart, too. Serenity. Soft and clear in hands poised for the feelings of inner peace in a pond holding a Source of Life on Earth that swiftly runs and slowly flows over stones and rocks easily as pure air.

this is such a true say. To have compasssion on others you must look in yourself for the weakness that attracts the weakness of others. By helping them to heal, I help my Soul to heal as well. Thank you for embrassing such powerful truth.
