Adventure and discovery was the enticement that drew Lee Elders to this wild lawless land; the supernatural world of the Shuara that live in a mystical realm of ayahuasca-induced visions where the ethereal world is encased within our third dimensional reality. Along the way he discovered his true self - his Kakarma. However incredible some of the incidents may seem this is a true story.

Default Ahhhh

Is this not beautiful??? Cooperation at its best. Finding a way to make everybody feel comfortable again.

And the Big Elephant sighs and questions, "What have we learned here?" And as she lingers, her thoughts conclude, "Compromise. Seeing, hearing all. Incorporating all perceptions into one big view. Though we may not always understand another's views, still we must embrace them, acknowledge them, respect them. And in doing so, we find ultimately a commoness, a unity. And in that unity, we find a place where we can all exist together in peace. And just what is peace, she thinks? Peace is the ultimate union of all, incorporating all views of the Big Elephant. Recognizing, understanding, accepting that there are many views of the Big Elephant and that no one is wrong but all are right in the big picture." She then signs again and smiles, thinking then, "It is good."

Love, Deb

Default Just for Fun

A farce written by Mark Twain: The Stolen White Elephant - a really funny story about a white elephant that is kidnapped, and the buffoon of a detective who finds 'the stolen property' too elusive to find.

This has prompted many thoughts within me. I'll have to let them gel before I respond, but just wanted you to know. Thanks.

Love, Deb

For it knows that it is still
The Big Elephant.

Oh that we could all just see
Ourselves, as The Big Elephant
And not be moved by others perceptions
But simply stand in our knowing.

Of who we are.....

Love, Deb



Excuse me,
I would like to move now

Thank you.

That's better


No poetry,
just a better view
which is poetry in itself.

Default The Big Elephant

The Big Elephant, looks at all angles
So as better to identify with what she
Is seemingly approaching.

She does not acquiese, simply because
Someone else says this is the way it is.

She defines for herself what is and then
Makes her own judgements from there.

She does not take another's word for anything
Until she has defined for her ownself
What is actually happening.

And when she has adequately done so
Then and only then does she move in that essence.

And that is the Spirit of the Big Elephant
And her wisdom.

Love, Deb

Smile The Big Elephant...

...is the matriarch of the World.

Her people borrow open Earth for all when there is no rain...

which brings Earth Mothers water to the surface for all the animal families.

Creating the water hole of life from the desert of Death.

The mighty Lions attack not the Elephant, not for fear of size,

but out of respect!

Does the Big Elephant ever sleep? Or is she an insomniac like me? HA!

Default Hahaha!!!!

The Big Elephant
Sleeps when she needs to sleep

She's got it all down
And she doesn't seem to be concerned

About anything....

She just lives life to the fullest
In her setting

Love, Deb
