There is something deeper than the noble cause of fighting for justice. It is going back to the sacred self. It is what will truly heal the world, says Patricia Anne Davis, American Indian, Navajo wisdom keeper.
Listening to these words, underneath the expansive shade of the Dawn Redwood tree and the smell of pink roses and magnolias at Central Park’s upper west side, gave me a profound awakening.
“The world is imbalanced, broken. We make it whole again by going back to our sacred selves. Healing is a state of harmlessness. We do not fight war with war. The cycle of imbalance will continue. The three belief systems of religion, philosophy, and academic theory are responsible for this kind of parasitic system,” she said calmly.
The key, she said, is to go back to the sacred self thinking, the reverence that all in life is whole and holy and founded on love and positivity.
“The natural system is the one belief system. We are all part of the divine and the natural flow of things. And so we go back to the concept of the Divine Feminine, where there is no domination-submission, where the feminine as the giver of life is supported and protected by man. It used to be that way, until the parasitic belief system took over to subjugate Mother Earth.”
She said activism is a limited and same level engagement to counter the status quo. “One has to be an advocate for a win-win situation. I am thus an advocate, not an activist. Activism only means to equalize force against force. One has to raise a political consciousness into the more sublime, holistic view.”
Patricia is setting the stage for world-wide consciousness of the wisdom of natural thinking, serenely in places that are felt to be sacred. Born in Arizona and raised in New Mexico, she became her father’s heiress of wisdom, through lineage, initiation, and training.
Through Patricia, more and more people – the young, the restless, the sick, and confused – are seeing things in a holistic manner to heal themselves and to understand life better. With this mindset, healthy eating sets in, mind de-stressing activities are being studied and applied, and a positive outlook and respect for others take place in each individual.
In many sacred spaces in the US, and in the world, the rebirth of the holistic thinking is taking shape. This for me is a beautiful transformation of humanity, slow but unpretentious.
