I have spoken about Divine devotion before and this morning it comes up again. Often I have been asked what is Shamanism? Or what does it mean to be a Yogi? In Heroes of the Now I suggest, from direct personal experience that the two are the same. Shaman and Yogi’s have been around since man began to intellectualize this worldly experience, I postulate. There are some that suggest Shamanism is the oldest form of “Spirituality” out there, with indications that man recognized Spirit as long as 25,000 years ago, archeologically evidenced by cave paintings and sculptures found in various parts of the world.
The simplest definition I suggest is merely that devotees to this path recognize, understand and see that energy, or Spirit, is the root of humanities experience. That there is a Universal Consciousness in this energy and that it is the very Life Force that creates our reality. Some call it God.
In my past, I was trained through my upbringing to discard this notion and cast aside the term, God, as something that was not to be talked about, embraced or understood further. Logically, it didn’t make sense to those around me and as a result, I, too, moved away from the Divine and entered the material world of the senses… Yes, it is far easier to believe the senses and intellect, accounting for the life experience that unfolds before our very eyes.
Yet, I always knew there was more.
The path of the material experience, one of the senses and logical mind can be void of Spirit. Sometimes, perhaps, there is a spark of awareness that a higher power exists, but it is quickly shed due to training or teachers, as in the material world, it is the body and mind that is the doer; the one who gets things done… puts food on the table, shelter overhead, protects the family and various other sundry tasks dictated by human survival, first, then societal expectation. This leads to a life devoid of the essence of All that Is and brings down the Iron Curtain, I spoke about a few days ago.
If you consider where humanity is at today, just look around you, it is plain to see that as a world culture, we are NOT on a Spiritual path. And you may ask… What can I do about it? I am just one…
That is your answer… you are the One! That has the power to change it all.
It all begins with you, right now.
Open your hearts, dear Ones… and close your eyes, but for a moment and travel within. Cast off the burdens placed upon you by a misguided notion. You are not the doer, when you let the Universal Energy flow through your being. You are the instrument, Divine in your nature and your purpose on this Journey is to realize that. To Remember your origins.
The Spiritual path, at this time is an arduous one, merely for the fact that we are constantly bombarded with the contrary, but it can be done. You can remember! And once you do, an entirely new experience opens up to you and the world around you begins to change… There is Peace and the suffering ends. Health and wellness returns and vitality courses through you again. It can be done; there is much proof all around you if you choose to look beyond the world of the senses and feel. The Divine is everywhere and when we finally do see that the Universe responds in kind…
Aho! Mitakuye Oyasin…
Blessings on our Soul Journey to Consciousness.
