John Trudell, it is being reported, is with his family, resting and waiting to pass or walk on from this realm. Knowing the seemingly reality that we all will experience passing or walking on gives me little relief from the pain I feel for those whose bodies are clearly nearing their end here. This pain always instructs me to be at ease and with peace with this and that which I am, but as a student of pain; The lesson to be learned is usually more patient than I am.
I have never met John, but have followed him for some time after experiencing metanoia. The flow of the experience introduced his writings and livings to my perspective. He has been a warrior for respect and equality of treatment for the indigenous peoples that still populate this continent. He has done such with little vanity and with an obvious respect to his ancestors ways of culture and relation to this realm. Metanoia opened me to the possibility of having indigenous ancestry so the attraction to spirits behind bodies used by such as John and Crazy Horse came very naturally with the flow of synchronicity for me. That being so, makes this a logical, spiritual and of reason to post and share so that my offspring may someday consider of these things if their life experience leads them to do so and that I would fully approve and encourage them in doing so.
I would like to offer some words on the passing of Scott Weiland. I do experience sadness at how such a talented artist was not able to find peace with his demons. I suppose his life story could serve as an example as to avoiding powdered drugs as Jimi Hendrix’s way of passing has always reminded me to sleep on my side when intoxicated with alcohol. I also would like to mention the possibility of the stigma of “Mental Illness” contributing to Scott’s personal battles. Intuition tells me that many gifts of human beings that are labeled mentally ill are wasted through fear of being stigmatized and obstricated. There is living wisdom to be learned from all beings if I am simply open and mindful to it.
If you are not familiar with John and his life’s work, I suggest to be open and curious to his story. It is very interesting, if nothing else.
May all beings be at ease and with peace in living as in so with resting.
“Too many people get involved in politics and they become politicians. That becomes their identity. If people could just pick-up political movements or politics, and say, ‘alright, this is the tool I’m using. I’m a human being, I am me, and I’m using this and that;’ but it doesn’t happen that way. We become political activists, and that becomes our identity, and that limits our ability to see. When it becomes our identity, we only see through the limited perception of our political needs…The deal is, if we going to use a political structure, then let’s recognize that that’s what we are doing. It’s a tool. It’s not an identity, it’s a tool.” -John Trudell
