Death, Ancestry and the dying

Dear Friend, You wrote: I have heard some shamans lately such as Christina Pratt and Malidoma Some speaking of the epidemic of dead, especially in the United States. That more than ever before, the world is inundated with dead who have not been able to get to the ancestral realms and return as true ancestors due to poor health in life, lack of any cosmology, many unresolved issues due to a life lived without awareness of one's purpose, family members that refuse to let go, a lack of flowing of grief/tears and a lack of proper funerary rites that pay attention to the deceased's soul rather than just the living.

If we agree or disagree we are still a possible richness to one another and to the world. In the not too distant past friendship and amity was sealed by letters, to put ink to the paper, to fold it and bring it into the envelope and getting it stamped so it could begi

Gently, with Grace

“If you don`t know what road to take, take the road of gentleness” - Ifasotito Osowale Agbefayelele Gently we should approach the human journey so we can walk gracefully in the world. To be gentle implies by its vernacular to be kind, but even if kindness is a good thing, to be gentle holds other virtues. It speaks of freedom, freedom from hatred and violence. Gentle is from the Latin gentilis , which signifies clan ship to a noble family. The same term - ‘gentile’ – was then later used as a pejorative for non Christian citizens in European Christian communities and was often assimilated with the term ‘pagan’. From the 12 th Century it was used as an adjective to describe someone of good pedigree, a noble person of fine manners and calm temperament, but also of non Christian dwellers in the countryside, the people of the old customs. In the 17 th Century it was used largely as a reference to men of gentle temperament.  The idea of a gentleman today holds the virtue of
