Back on the Mountain

On my journey a little over two years ago, I was Blessed to discover a small town on the top of Sacramento Mountain. It's in the lower Rocky Mountains.

 

The town itself only has 380 population. There are two tiny stores that are too expensive, so the journey down the mountain to go for groceries at Walmart is 150 mile round trip.

 

We are around 6,000ft in elevation. It is in the Lincoln National Forest.  It's the first time I have ever lived in a forest, and my…

Grand Fathering

So in 1971 or so I went to the Catskills in NY to get closer to the Source. This was where a Guru from India had set up an environment for many of us to go and listen and find our Home again. He was interesting and he said a lot.

 

I spent time in this environment and connected deeply with the Salamanders near the shallow ponds around this sparkling place. Under trees, deep…

A long hard road

Often in healing there is a process of learning which by sharing with others can help us prevent the same mistakes.



As these words are written is a time of deep reflection upon recent occurrences in our clan of Embera medicine people, our circle of friends, and patients.



Let us address an impulse in some of us who feel a need to have spiritual experiences attempting to know more than others, and of those who want healing, but avoid doing the work.



Both of these… Continue

FORGIVE AND FORGET

Last Sunday, when the newspaper banners blared NEVER FORGET, the minister preached Forgiveness.  I was glad that his message was short and sweet.  Glad that because he had preached it; I could write about 9/11 with an introduction that might be more palatable to those who still see America as invincible.  

All week, the papers were full of individual recollections: How lives had been changed that day, How we as a nation would never be same.  Yet, I think our behavior as a nation…

Vacation in amber

 

Vacation in amber

Once upon a time it was said that money makes the world go round. So people started to make strange circles. These circles looked a little bit like those of cats running behind their own tail. But the tail of these people was very short. So they never could reach it. But…. wait a minute….Watch that story:

It happened to be that a family of six went on vacation to the Baltic Sea. They went into an Amber-museum - a…

Once: No Blood for oil (for Iraq in 1990) Today: For those who want to know

once a student from the 11 grade played that song with a guitar at a little concert in a German town:

(I try my best to translate it into English)

> No blood for oil! No blood for oil!

> That is it no worth.

> No blood for oil! No blood or oil!

> Say way do you give it away?

> 2.

> (spoken)

> Big fields - a sea of flames.

> Crying people - but there is no help.

> Death within the sand of the…
