Dear Sentient, thank you so much for your kind response and posting. Please feel free to post as many links as you can, your links are all teaching me, as I am sure others who are viewing this thread 😊

I agree wholeheartedly with you, yes we can project our romanticisms and fantasies upon indigenous cultures. This happens all the time, I have seen it happen to me and others around me.

With that said, I truly believe there is no such thing as “outsiders” per se, I believe true awareness of love, compassion and kindness, with the altruistic intention of helping other sentient beings transcends all language and culture, wisdom/awareness recognizes no one culture or language, but rather encompasses them all. At least that is my humble two cents. 😉

At the end of the day, we are all decedents of indigenous cultures around the world. I was the first of my family born in Canada, my family comes from Venezuela, and my ancestry goes back to the indigenous cultures of the Oronoco region. And sadly, I know all too well how Indigenous cultures around the world have suffered, most stories of which, are not love and light.

Mind you, I am always learning everyday, and thanks to you, I will have the honor and pleasure of getting to know the Taiwanese Aboriginal history.

Thank you so very much for sharing the words of wisdom from your Tibetan Lama Friend with me, words of wisdom indeed!

Yeshe,
Now you got me seriously curious about the Venezuelan Oronoco region Natives and Cultures!

I know next to nothing about Venezuela!

Now also your first post on this thread makes total sense (to me at least).

^^ Just another word to describe my practices so they can be understood without saying this.. Transcendental meditation, physical and auric energy healing, exorcisms, etheric and astral travel, spirit guides, etc.

The word doesn't offend me much since I've also practiced celtic and egyptian shamanism as well.

The offense comes from the mental health industry classifying us as schizophrenic. I mainly practice versions of tai chi and qi gong now for grounding and improvement, especially when i skate.

The wingmaker and rainbow knowledge is a deeper meaning. Ive heard different variations from hippies and rainbow children who more over do drugs than meditate, so Ive seen the "shot out" glance of the story.

Its been told in many cultures differently but the main idea is that our whole earth family will come together and protect each other from a more definite enemy which is not from here.
