I felt the need to set the record straight on a few things concerning what I teach and live due to some of the information that is out there today and recent contacts. I am a firm believer that we all must speak our minds and hearts. But I also strongly believe that we must do far more than speak and write these things, but get out in the world and walk them as well. Walk our talk and be who we truly are. We can only truly be who we are and so we may as well do our very best at being just that, exactly who we are. Some can pretend to be someone else or something they are not, but what do they actually achieve in life? The game of illusions can only stay afloat for so long.
I am not one of those people who claim to have all the answers because I sincerely do not. I also do not claim to have “The way that works”, or “The only way”, again because I sincerely do not. I walk my path and it works for me. It’s not an easy path and I’m sure there are many gentler ways out there than the one I have thus far walked and blundered through.
I teach what I know, what I have walked and experienced personally day by day, and night by night. I do not stand upon the back of someone else and claim their ways as my ways. Sure with almost 7 billion people in the world, and who knows how many who have walked here before us there are bound to be ways and paths of others that are similar to mine and to yours. It’s kind of hard for there not to be. The truth of it comes down to HOW we are walking our personal paths. Do we use our own minds and stand upon our own two feet while making choices and walking proudly forward? I do my very best to, yes. However, there are many who do not. They are content to walk in the same footsteps of another and use the same way of thinking, the same quotes, the same actions and reactions. Nothing unique grows from such a way. But is that way “wrong”? Maybe it works for some and who am I to tell them otherwise? If that is what makes them happy and content then I guess that is the path they came here to walk. That is not my way though. I think I would explode if I tried!
It is true that I teach many things, but never do I claim that what I teach is the “only way”, or the “best” way. This is a highly complex life, world and universe and how could there possibly be only one way through it all? I am who I am and I do what I do. Some people find the ways I walk and teach to be extremely beneficial for them, but I’m sure that such ways are not for everyone. Each individual must make their own choices in life and answer for them.
Yes it is true that I recently met Stewart Swerdlow and Janet Swerdlow. Yes it is true that they have kindly agreed to open a space in their busy lives to include me in a joint venture where I would be selling some of the Ways Of The Wild Institute products through them. Also from time to time I would be teaching what I teach in a workshop fashion in Michigan. I’m not “joining them, but rather electing to stand on my own two feet in a mutual business venture. Ways Of The Wild Institute will still be Ways Of The Wild Institute and what I teach will not change. I find them both to be very nice people doing what they do. Of course we walk completely separate paths and live our own lives, but there are some things we share in common as far as working with deeper energies than just surface ones in life. It is true that we do not see eye to eye and agree on everything. We definitely have differing viewpoints in many areas of life. Someone recently asked me if I knew about the websites out there that seem to work diligently at verbally attacking and trying to discredit what the Swerdlow’s do. I replied with this-
Yes I am aware of some of these sites. I don’t go to them and could not care less about what they contain. To me life is precious and my time on this planet I feel is far better spent doing what I do rather than wasting my energy slandering others. I do not believe in the slandering or others. Everyone walks their own path in life. Some are beneficial and others are not. Who am I to make that judgment call? I have better things to do with my time than to judge others. Do others judge me? I’m sure there are some out there who do. Do I care? Not at all. I know who and what I am and that is all I need. If others wish to pass judgment than that is their energy, not mine. We are the source of everything we do and all energy eventually returns to the source in full. Judge if you wish, but don’t ask me to join in. I truly have better things to do.
Everyone can make their own decisions in life. I can’t make them for them and wouldn’t want to. Maybe some folks came here to make the “wrong” decisions. Maybe that is why they came to this life, maybe that is what they came to learn and maybe that is what they “need” out of this life. Who am I to say otherwise and try to “save” them from the path they walk? I certainly will not be found slandering another to “save” someone from making their own choices and learning their own lessons.
So there it is, I am here, I do what I do and I force nobody to follow. I simply do the best that I can with what I have; the only thing anyone can do in life. Please don’t ask me to join your group, donate to your cause, try to “covert me” or cowardly slander another.
I am not a “hero” that should be placed upon an altar. I’m simply a spiritual being living a physical life as best as I can. In my book anyone who has ever done anything for a higher benefit beyond “self” classifies a hero. What about the woman who was raped and then went on to recover and open a women’s shelter, or the child who was neglected and beaten by their parents and grew up to become a wonderful mentor… and what about the soldier who took a bullet for his team member in combat, or the cart pusher at a grocery store to helped an elder person up after they fell? “Heroes” are everywhere; everyday folks simply doing things that assist the world in becoming a better place to live.
I’m not perfect. I do the best I can with what and who I am in life and that takes all my focus and energy. I have no time or want to judge others or try to be someone else or walk someone else’s path. What you see is what you get.
Ways Of The Wild Institute is based upon this- be who you are and do the best you can with what you have- be honest, be yourself, walk your talk and spend your time trying to expand your own life rather than cutting someone else’s down.
Thank you all for your ongoing support, understanding and precious time.
