by any means 1998 but does that matter It s a good book and sometimes the truly important and meaningful ones are hard to come by Bear Heart is a Muskogee Creek Indian and Medicine Man, willing to share wisdom and help others to embrace life through his teachings and the ways of the Shaman Even though he descends from the Bear Clan, his name Bear Heart was earned through his courage in confronting a bear, and talking the animal out of attacking him The Wind element comes from his mother descending from the Wind Clan Bear Heart s book is a gentle and peaceful look at his upbringing and humanity as a whole, and is offered to provide inspiration and hope to others through his wisdom Knowing literally nothing about Native Americans, this book opened up a few new paths of knowledge and enlightened me to some of their powerful teachings and cultural beliefs I have to admit that I have never been particularly interested in this cultural society, so I m glad I picked up this book, as it led me to gain a better insight into their ways of living One of the most poignant subjects in this book are the medicine people who, through the centuries, have been endowed with special gifts to heal even the most serious afflictions in others, including both mental and physical ailments I was also not that surprised to learn that tobacco is used as an instrument of prayer and viewed as a sacred plant not inhaled but smoked during some of these ceremonies, communications or chantings with other natural or spiritual beings The Sacred Pipe would be used in ceremonies to communicate with the Great Spirit Bear Heart says If a child had a stomach ache my mother would sing a little chant and thump the child s belly four times and the ache would go away, and for an ear ache there s a chant and a blowing on the ear You see a lot of things that we can t even explain It is interesting to note that his people aren t concerned with knowing how these things work, they are simply taught these methods by their elders, never questioning anything, just accepting it Now for modern society this is all truly bizarre of course Some might call it ancient voodoo based hogwash But is it really What you won t learn in this book is how any of these practices actually work or where they stem from It s much like a telescope, Bear Heart shows you what he has learned and sees, but you still don t really understand it anythan he seems to The story does enfold with a lovely selection of anecdotes passed through the Indian generations, even the small incidents which shaped their world are memorable Some could view this book as a life manual, an insight into achieving some sort of inner peace, letting go of struggle and understanding your place in the universe There are no big revelations as to where we came from and why we are here of course, but what is quite apparent is the acute respect the native American Indians have for all living creatures, and non living objects too The fact that they pray and talk to animals before slaughtering them for food is quite eye opening If you must kill, present an offering, and talk to the animal, explaining I need you for my family Something this book does instil, is a sense of rapport and harmony with our fellow human beings You may read it and start to understand that everything happens for a purpose and of course, we aren t hear to judge others, but to do our best to make things a little better for ourselves and for the world.Whatever religion, culture, belief people have is one thing, but we are all part of the same system, we eat the same food, inhale the same air and generally want the same things, love, security and survival So Bear Heart s teachings revolve around all these issues with humility and great insight.I d definitely recommend this book to anyone who might be interested in the native American beliefs and even if you don t, you will come away understanding a littleabout others, yourself and your place in the universe I will absolutely NOT swap this book because I refer back to it over and over again It is absolutely amazing and I HIGHLY recommend it for everyone It is written by a Native American Shaman who is so full of wisdom.PLEASE read I loved this book It was a beautiful explanation of Native American beliefs that really explained how much we are all alike and how the Great Spirit guides all of us I will someday re read this book. Grande spiritualit di un uomo di medicina. This book contains a lot of knowledge and insights to how the Native American, the Creeks specifically, held themselves in their society It all states how much need for humanity there needs to be, and it was refreshing to read Bear Heart speaks so much truth, and I enjoyed every minute of it.
