In that time when we were free to roam pretty well wherever we needed to… for sure was a long, long time ago. Today ther is not one us who can physically remember this free way. It is my belief that we have internal memory – imprinting of this within our psyche – our being.
This freedom was before this land and we were taken over by another race of people. In my statement I intentionally say “we needed” and not “we wanted to” because we are knew we related to every living thing in a very significant unique way. We accepted and lived by an internal honor that we are like all beings with like-limitations, boundaries and unique these relationship were universal to all around us.
While each of us had this special relationship it was within our self and which was connected to all other aspects of life of self and our community and our environment – both directly physically and universally – seen and unseen.
It was WITHIN US ALL. And this was and is the core of the greatest relationship we have and have had.
Today, we have trouble with this relationship and it comes out as the EMOTIONAL RELATIONSHIP within ourselves – our concepts and beliefs of our self being – our self worth and our inner composed vision of why and how and who were are individually and tribally.
To do anything significant and relevant to further the true emotional growth into this aspect of healing each of us must become acutely more aware and be willing to comprehend the truth worth of understanding how and why Native North American Native Tribes did not have the same complicated system of emoting and expression of emotions – levels, degrees and patterns. In other words the emotional system of native Tribes was not as sophisticated and perhaps – intellectualized. I do not mean intelligence – I mean straight forward simplistic without wordiness and saturation for manipulation or distraction or dramatic convolution. In other words to cause more complicating diversion to come to a healthy fulfilling solution.
What was brought to us was a BIG broad wide spectrum of emotions and emoting and a great number of intellectualizing of feeling, emotions and choices of behaviors – pro and con.
Gone is the special relationship of relating directly, straight forward – simple, honorably and without confusing (personal influenced and cultural and familial diverse) intellectual learned conditioned responses to feelings thinking and believing – then doing.
