Waking up has different meanings for different people.
Often we think we are talking about the same thing when we talk about waking up, in reality, we may actually be talking about very different concepts.
And that’s ok. We all came here to experience what we came here to experience.
For many of us we are just trying to make sense out of a world which at times can feel like it jumped off its axis.
Within Ka Ta See it doesn’t make any difference if you want to spend your life totally asleep, because for those people that is their spiritual path.
Others though, we go through life pretty asleep, but than it hits us, it’s like an alarm going off and all of a sudden we have this longing for something we can’t explain.
We feel this pull towards a greater purpose, a greater meaning, a greater knowing without being able to explain any of it at first.
What has fulfilled us in the past feels lacking, empty even.
Where we have found purpose doesn’t fulfill us anymore.
What we thought was real doesn’t feel like it anymore.
And so we begin our search for what is truly real, within us, around us, all around the world and the universe even.
That shift can hit us at any age, and whatever age it is, the odds are usually not stacked in our favor to change the course of our life.
Yet, against all those odds we try anyway because there is this annoying thing called our spirit and if it wants to know – it wants to know – and nothing in the world, none of the obstacles thrown in front of it will stop it from finding out.
More and more we look for what’s real, we long for real.
And there are many paths to that center, to that reality where there is no more make believe.
What makes the Ka Ta See path so unique is that it utilizes the gifts of all the four directions.
Not just the gift of one direction, but the gifts of all four. That is unique and most uniquely powerful.
The gift of the south, knowing Song, knowing yourself.
Not blindly believing what a religious dogma tells you you are, not what you think you are, not what someone else tells you you are, but knowing the real you and your place in the world, your place amongst the stars through the eons, knowing that for real.
That’s the gift of the south.
