Traditional Knowledge - Old Skool???

Traditional Knowledge Keepers (Elders)



Our traditional knowledge keepers are the pride of our nation. They are the teachers of law and protocol; they are the doorway, connection to ceremony, way of life, and connection to the spiritual realm. They are the helpers of Creator and are respectful of all beings. They have different ways of teaching because they are gifted with different ceremonies and help us understand ourselves. As human beings we are considered the weakest link in… Continue

Now

So what I can say is that life can be cruel. This came from my father. Now I am in a good place. I wish he was here to see it. Today my life is so good I don't know what to say. I have so much Love in my world. To reinforce this, Sandy is a wonderful mystery. Before I can think of what I need she provides.




Today is the day after our gathering. We invited our kids and grandchildren to join us. This celebration was profound. They came and we ate bison plus chicken. Sandy made videos… Continue

For those who pray

For those who pray

Who pray because water reminds him

Who sees in a flash a feeling good presence

To try again with a soft heart

To put down the insurmountable fear

To stand like a tree firmly rooted.



To remember your ancestors your

Constellation to hear your song unsung

For your woman.



Who pray because air comes for her

Blows her through the wind chimes

Hanging on the clothes line Her… Continue

The Waters

Soft, gentle rain gathering into murky pools

Now flowing together as a happy brook

Laughing, jumping as it trickles down

Giving life to all it touches.



Brook meets brook, together one inseparable

They press forward moving rock and all

Crashing over, plummeting down they fall

Creative, destructive, unbridled passion.



All they touch, forever changed

Valley to canyon, canyon to gorge

Manic toward home, oblivious oblivion

Alpha and… Continue

A bit of wisdom

I sure hope you are feeling better. Keep taking care of your health don't let other's who are unwilling to take responsibility for their actions knock you over. Stay peaceful, reassure yourself. You are loving, kind and considerate...Reassure your body and keep moving forward.



No one should fight our battles for they are all inside us and must be dealt there. Within... Keep reassuring yourself even if you do this all day. The magic of the moment will sweep your mind clear so your… Continue

Wiped Out

My tribe is gone because we were rubbed out. Their knowledge is imbedded in my genes and being. I grew up dreaming of their ways. The Earth and They were One. Those dreams persist.



Now I labor with those memories. As a kid I felt a longing to return to a simpler way. I was good with being outdoors with nature. My mom opened the door and I was out. I walked in a dream world of old memories being reactivated. I felt and lived in those moments and was again alive.



My tribe is… Continue

The Whirling Rainbow prophecy (www.whirling.ning.com)

On May 10th, 2009 upon my return home from the International Indigenous Leadership gathering "Proteting the Sacred" I observed and photographed a Rainbow around the Sun...my heart and mind were so full of blessings and teachings from the gathering I felt this Rainbow on such a clear cloudless and warm day had significance. I did some research on the web and found that a Rainbow around the Sun on a cloudless day is very rare and not due to the usual reasons for a Sun Dog (a spot of rainbow or a… Continue

'Hyperspace safe womb'



I have been experiencing consciousness as weather phenomena inside of me.



During one of my imaginary wandering on Dec 9th I realized I must not give up the those early visions about Norway and the fantastic quest/vision I received after ceremony at Teotihuacán. For a moment my attention was focused on the far out region of Norway and I imagined a light, a glow and a crystal emanating from a point in the sky to the… Continue

Yerba Mate

There is an old Guarani Indian legend that relates the origins of the Guarani in the Forests of Paraguay. According to the legend, the ancestors of the Guarani at one time in the distant past crossed a great and spacious ocean from a far land to settle in the Americas. They found the land both wonderful yet full of dangers; through diligence and effort they subdued the land and inaugurated a new civilization.



The Guarani tribes worked the land and became excellent craftsmen. They… Continue

Trees

Trees



I am in love with trees. They sit as quiet sentinels in our forests and attest to the glory of life. We connect with then on our walks in the forest. They are stout and silent. But in a pine forest they speak profusely. I have been halted in my tracks by the overwhelming perfume of their essence.



Not to diminish the glory of the Creators work in producing other trees; I have to admit a special connection with pines. The cone is food for squirrels and also makes for a… Continue

Grandmothers

Grandmothers



My thoughts are with the Grandmothers. They, in their end time are connected with Creator. They manifest this as Love. In this regard they are a well-stream of information. Our last words tend to be Mom related. So many of us spring upright from our death bed and in our last breath say “Mommy.”



But mommy is the daughter of Grandmother. She learned her ways from her mom. Caught up in the knocks of an indifferent life stream, our moms did the best they could to… Continue

An Amazing Experience setting up social networks in the Philippines...

Thursday Nov 26, 2009





As I write this I can hear the roosters communicating from across the village. I hear dogs cheering each other on as they welcome in the new morning and young children laughing as they walk to school. The air smells crisp with a slight sent of pine. These are all characteristics of Kin-iway, Besao. Francisco and I have been blessed with yet another great adventure here in the Cordillera Mountain Range of the Philippines.



We are currently… Continue

The Invitation

The Invitation



It doesn’t interest me

what you do for a living.

I want to know

what you ache for

and if you dare to dream

of meeting your heart’s longing.



It doesn’t interest me

how old you are.

I want to know

if you will risk

looking like a fool

for love

for your dream

for the adventure of being alive.



It doesn’t interest me

what planets… Continue
