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 The Big Elephant

The Big Elephant stands
And in her standing she peers around her
Slowly taking in all that surrounds her
Scoping, she does, visualizing all that is in

Her presence....

As she munches on the leaves of the trees
Feeling the succulence inbibe her
She continues to peer around
And finds those peering at her

And she wonders....

What is it that they see that so enthralls them
Why would they look at me eating upon this tree
While they seem to be so beleaguered
In there own lack of sustenance

And still she wonders....

Then she feels darts coming at her
As if they could penetrate her tough hide
She then smiles at the futility of it all
And continues to eat

But still she wonders....

Why would anyone want to harm her
For just being who she is
What threat has she ever posed on another
Her ivory tusks braze the branches

On the tree in which she feeds....

Ah, she thinks, could this be it
Could it be that I hold the sanctuary of myself
In these ivory tusks that I present
The essence of strength to shake the branches

Again she nibbles on the leaves....

She smiles then, not feeling it necessary to proceed
With any further thoughts on another's perceptions
But just relishing in her own and feeling sanctified
In her own presence

Flapping her big ears, hearing....

And as she does so, she finds that she
Easily frees herself of the darts
That were thrown at her
Her long trunk swifts them easily away

And she continues to forage....

The Big Elephant smiles.

Love, Deb

Dear Bell

This art moved me in a very deep way. For a long time today I kept looking at it and feeling something deep in my soul. There is so much beauty and serenity in it. Glad we could share this together.

Default The Big Elephant

The Big Elephant
Is moving now
Though she walks slowly
Her steps are planted
Steadfastly upon

The Mother Earth....

She is leaving behind
All that from which she came
And going forward
To all that which she perceives
To be in await

And she shivers in the wonder....

Slowly she walks
Remembering always
Every little thought that she has had
Putting it all together it seems
To make some sort of sense

In this moment now....

As the sun crests itself
Above the butte before her
The rays extend themselves
Enveloping her, caressing her
She feels comforted then

In her walk beyond....

Yes, it is a walk beyond she thinks
For hasn't she gone far beyond
And back again and again and again
Only to capture
What she missed the other times

And the lesson still remains....

Tired but rejuvenated she thinks
What more could be to her blessing
In that she find exactly
What she has sought
In her coming to herself

Once again....

And so she stands once again
Stoic in her presence
And remembers from long ago
I am that I am who walks this earth
Just because I am

Then there she sees the rising sun...

Love, Deb

Default And

And the Sun speaks
I see you dear one
Who has come
I will honor your presence

As you honor my own.

You have not gone amiss
You are not sifted from me
I will be there for you
As you are here for me.

Let us discover the possibilities
Together.

The Big Elephant smiles then
and awaits.

Love, Deb

Default Nice Deb, very nice.

The elephant has grown a lot since last I read this piece
Grown in wisdom, size and love and maturity
I hear the voice in soft spoke words within itís only heart
And feel the wisdom itís comes to know from the very start.
