The path of the warm heart………

cross posted at Firefly-dreaming

My partner in life turned me on to the Dog Whisperer……..

and it has become my favorite program on the whispering box…….

and I acknowledge Ceasar Millan for being one of my primary inspirations for growth today….

from the moment I laid eyes on him I realized I had been gifted a teacher…..

a soul to make visible something I had not found yet in life……

a teacher of balanced male energy…….

and now I have set out on a journey to embody something other than angry dominant male energy……

every program has two domains……

bringing the dog(s) into present time so that they can enact different behavior in the present….

and then bringing the humans into the present so they can enact calm assertive leadership for their dog(s)……..

and from where I stand there is a deep possibility in the work he does for all of us……

because there is something we seek in the process of politics…..

and it is not there…….

yet…

what is it that that we seek……

one thing we seek is a way out of the living nightmare we find ourselves in……

and when I watch Ceasar work with a red line pit bull and bring both the dog and the people to a new place inside of hours or days I know it can  be done with us……

even 7 billion of us……

even tea baggers and progressives…..

each time this seeming miracle occurs the process is the same……

to begin to work with the dog to bring its mind into present time so it can begin to heal whatever trauma was the original source of the behavior……

to return to trust……

and once trust becomes a possibility to work with the human so that they can earn respect from their dog(s)……

and the the process is again always the same…..

to support the humans to engage the trauma that stands in the way of them coming into the present……

and when in the present to enact calm assertive leadership so that they and their dogs can heal……

the part of life that Ceasar always touches is their warm heart……

it is the only thing in life strong enough for them to be willing to be vulnerable without their defensive behavior to seek an opening to enact new behavior which will assist healing in all….

and they must lead……

we are more than any other life form on this earth haunted by the past…..

we have more neurology and cerebral architecture for the use of memory to create meaning than any other animal…..

most animals are locked in the near now…..

we reenact the trauma of the past more often than not…..

and we humans have been traumatizing each other for quit some time now……

in fact we both cognitively remember through our retelling of the myth of history……

and we embody through the internalized myth of our current culture that trauma……

we are so trapped by the historical trauma of the human race that it is driving the process now……

and since over half of the humans who have ever lived are alive today…..

we are committing more historical trauma than has ever been enacted……

the path to the healing of our species historical trauma is actually straight forward….

each human life is the repository for the historical trauma it inherited…..

and we are an reenactment of it unless we become responsible for its healing……

we each have our own part and through the healing of all of our parts we can find freedom in the present to enact new behavior today…..

awhile back I began the recapitualtion of my life…..

and when I arrived at my birth I followed the lives of my people, my parents and grandparents and my culture backwards through time……

to understand the scope of what I was in the work to be done…….

I found myself consumed by sorrow and grief and rage and fear……

the trauma of the past reaching back into the fog of time…….

it nearly destroyed me….

but I made it through the dark night of my soul…..

and found my warm heart……

I discovered that I had made an error in understanding myself to date…..

that I had given my body and my heart to my mind………

I had sought understanding where none was possible……

that my mind was haunted by the myth and the historical trauma…..

this was very important for me…..

because in this body and in this life I had my own share of trauma to heal and it seemed almost too much by itself……

let alone the burden of becoming vulnerable to taking on the howl of the horror of human sharing through history……

so I gave my will to my mind and allowed it to wear my heart and my  body…..

and that is an error…

when I discovered my warm heart I did not know what to do with it….

so I would take it out and walk it once in awhile…

but only when it was safe and convenient……

so it mostly went neglected…..

and the burden of the darkness of historical trauma buried me and it……

then when I had lost all hope and given up……..

my partner……

the force of the daughters of the mother…..

my first connection to the feminine……

gave me the gift of turning to Dog Whisperer…..

and there before me was a man who had given himself to the warm heart and was giving his body and his mind to it to wear……

and it made possible something which was impossible……

he was calm and assertive…..

he was and is an exemplar of the leadership we seek……

for the healing of the historical trauma of the human race……

the warn heart…..

calm assertive energy……….

and it was the path…..

the way out of the nightmare we all live embedded in each day……

the path to all of the solutions we need to engage all of the change before us….

we have everything we need……

each of us……

to do our part…..

to heal the historical trauma that each of us is an enactment of…..

to provide calm assertive leadership where we find ourselves so as to enact the survival of life…..

it is all right here……

in our warm hearts…..

    pretty incredible.  I’m sure there’s a message in there somewhere for each of us.

    we must go forth with our hearts first & foremost

    it is the only path with any meaning

    ♥~

  1. For the past year, my part-time job as a dog walker has allowed me to observe and interact with Luke and Rhea, a 1 year old Blue Heeler.

    We started when Rhea was 14 weeks. Through that time Luke has been patient with her, showing her dog manners and protocol ( never bite another dogs genitals).

    They are great buddies, engaging in very spirited sparring matches. Luke out weighs her by 35 lbs but he allows Rhea to often be the aggressor

    Dogs read body language so well, canine as well as human.

  2. Most people are good 95% and 5% are sociopaths.  Not the serial killer type but maybe more like souls with zero conscience.  Society tends to put these people on top.

    Anyway this is my latest Apocalyptic Cavalry chant.
