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.

Yes, Thunder, most precisely, truly and undeniably. I believe that beliefs can screw up humans and humankind (and unkind) just as sure as dogma can infiltrate faith and devolve it further into denial against the facts that such faith is based in bias to prejudice to bigotry and hate to an entirely evil and sickly form of "love" that could make a mischievous imp cringe.

What is purity? Okay, no, that's going to take way too long for me to bring in at this point and you know it so I'm not asking you to see if you know it because I know that you know it and you know. . . ;)

My point, anyway, to everyone as you are saying and I am daring to sum up (a little anyway) is to THINK before you LEAP. "Leap of faith"? as Kierkegaard was wont to say about doubt to no-doubt believing, feeling and being. Sounds real good, doesn't it? I like Mr. K and I like the idea of "leap of faith" for people who think before they jump. So I jump and God catches me before I fall? Why? Why not? And finally, at least for now, whatever. . . .

And to Thunder and all who listen and hear look and see with constant curiosity about life and death and living and loving and so on and on until more on & on. . .
The Spiritual Essence of whatever anyone tries to name it, is Nothing--Nothing like anything we could ever assume to know well enough to boast with pride that God is on my side or his side or her side or the Methodist side or Libertarians side (that's funny!) I believe I humble myself to The Ineffable--to the Essence of Grace beyond what I could ever assume Grace to be. Here, in not knowing and not assuming I know, I feel more safe than is I were in a science class based on facts that most scientists understand to be mutable in order to be worth further exploration, discovery, research, curiosity, and never ever giving in to authority even when we give attention to authority--especially when we can sense what might be called "reverence" for Spirit, Life, Earth, Creation and whatever else our little minds can form in order to give meaning and make sense out of what is otherwise, well, otherwise. . . ;) Faith. I'm not stuck in it because I have yet to take the leap for real, so I wait for myself to understand acceptance beyond faith without falling into boogaboo hocus pocus moonie kablooey crapola long die David Koresh--or whatever that wacko's name was in Waco, TX. And Scientology?! Never mind. I said I was done for now and so now, I really am, for now. . .
