About ‘Brother Bear and I’
Thanks-giving is a powerful emotion. It is also a very powerful spiritual voice. When we use the words ‘Thank You’, we are using a spiritual power and voice.
The teachings of many religions including the Native Americans, is that we are a spiritual being. They also teach that there is life after the death of the body.
I firmly believe we live in two realms simultaneously. We live in the physical realm where we see and touch and feel our way almost as a blind man does, daily. And we live in a spiritual realm complete with authorities and powers and laws that we can know and understand.
Some teach that we choose our parents and are seeking an experience here. Others teach we will go and come again in another body. I am not sure of all these teachings. I am sure we have a purpose to connect with our maker and that we can hear him and respect him and his creations. He created earth and us who live in the earth. This is my belief.
Dr. Masaru Emoto discovered the memory in water. Lately other scientists have discovered even a powerful memory in the organs of our bodies. Women have long known that children in the womb can hear and respond to their voices and the sounds around them and emotions too. Dr. Emoto found that if you speak to water then it hears and responds in kind. If you speak ‘thank you’ then the water makes the most beautiful crystals to photograph. If you speak unkind words then the water becomes dead and void of beauty. We are made mostly of water and our world is covered mostly with water. I believe the Native peoples around the globe understood some of these things even if they could or can not today articulate them.
Prayer in my understanding is most powerful and useful in our lives.
If you go to the Bible, which many western religions use and share amongst them selves, you will find inside that the animals can speak and that even the rocks can cry out. It even states that the earth, itself groans. All of creation is alive. All of creation has a purpose. That purpose, I believe is to glorify the creator. None of us are perfect and so, can not glorify him in our perfect-ness. None of us are the same. We are indeed all different and have differing experiences in life. Mostly we can believe though and that is where we can bring glory to our creator; simply by believing in him, that he is. Just by knowing him and responding to him and his creation with kindness and appreciation, we will if nothing more, at least respect it enough to cause it to begin to prosper and not die.
At times, our creator will even speak to us, if we can be still long enough to hear his voice. This is indeed the hardest thing to do in this day and age, to be still and listen. There are so many distractions that seek to fill our ears and eyes and that pull upon our emotions and eat our time.
If we lived like the Native Americans, with an awesome respect for the land and every thing that fills it; and Him also that created it, then we would live more comfortably and prosperously with less want in our lives. Technology is not the answer to the problems of life and drugs are not the answer to our health problems either. Simplicity is. Let us choose to remember the years of our youth when our hearts and minds were not cluttered with the madness, of the seeking, after the ever changing and exploitative technologies and machines that spoil and do not give life. Let us simply be still and listen. Listen to our own hearts and listen for that still voice and the voices of the earth that births life continually. The creator may speak to you, if you are still and listening. He may tell you of the wonderful story, of His giving to all of us the breath of life and the beauty of His world, this earth, for us to live in and love and enjoy.
I have been writing since I was about 15 or so. At first, I wrote very cheesy poems and some few that were quite wonderful it seemed to me. I then began to study and seek after wisdom and understanding. I have read much in the years since and found that the simplest things in life are indeed the most powerful and satisfying. Just sitting in the evening and watching the sun go down can be quite powerfully inspiring and energizing. There are sun gazers that literally live off of looking into the sun.
My studies have taken me into history and nutrition and many other disciplines.
We all are indeed exploring the length and breadth of life, should we not become distracted by the T.V. or news of the latest controversy. We are indeed here to live and to love. Time was created for us. We only are given a few precious moments of it to use. Let us therefore use it well. Let us look past those things that take away life to those things that give life and that in abundance. Feel your way, Find your way, Discover the excitement of the bounty of our great earth!
Then you will not be able to stop talking about it. I tell you truly.
