Kogi~Hopi Dreams

Kogi warning

Ramon's speech

This documentary is one of the most powerful films I've ever seen. Truly magical people, in complete communion with the earth. Would love to see a follow-up to see how the Kogi are doing. Keep up the great work, I will be donating to the Tairona foundation to help their cause!

The Kogi - From the Heart of the World - The Elder Brothers' Warning

The Kogi are an indigenous people living in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta mountains of northern Colombia, in South America.

They are the only civilisation to have survived the Spanish conquests and to have kept their individuality. They are perhaps the only indigenous people in the world who, because of the particular nature of their surroundings, have been able to keep themselves apart and sustain their culture inviolate. And not only that.

The one anthropologist who managed to study them in the 1940's and 50's concluded that though they are similar in some ways to the other Indian peoples around the Caribbean, northern Central America and south to the Andes, there are such profound differences that "in the end the Kogi stand alone".

Peaceful and uplifting; makes me think that maybe just serenity is a great code breaker. Desire - serenity - fulfilment - freedom. I'm not suggesting, only showing what I'm feeling about my journey right now. No-one could ever accurately predict the kind of things the Hopi do, I'm afraid its just more Armageddon mayhem - if "they're" not quoting Nostradamus, then its the Hopi or the New Testament - you're into shit loads of global self-fulfilling prophesy and you should know you're feeding your own frenzy.

The Hopi need more Xboxes and Playstations, and some petro-fuel toys! :-) Seriously, enjoyed the video...almost a meditation watching it.

Sorry - I wish I had depersonalised my last sentence - in with my size 11's again.

Zoro- You have no idea of the full nature of what I'm 'into'.

From your linear/materialist perspective, I'm sure the view must be puzzling. You can be sure that any self-limiting perspective of what is not possible can never see the wider horizon of what, in fact, is.

Kogi cosmology would blow your mind if you opened yourself to it. There is nothing on Earth like it, and their insight into the nature and substance of being and spirit makes comments like yours rather sad.

Perhaps it is sad to be sceptical in order to offer a choice beyond the belief that the end of the world is nigh. I sat in a brethren chapel in Devon for many years staring at a sign which said "'til he come." Nowadays I don't give a shit about "him" and I hope nobody "comes" - it's about discipline and honesty. Sometimes I seem to be in denial out of spite and saying fuck off to godness is a puerile authority complex. You didn't ask but I would like to "give" - I welcome anything from you and that I can "use" (red rag?).

I seem linear because I too knew a thing called the sea of possibilities and I drove myself mad like Phaedrus. (Are we postscripts to Pirsig?) I have seen everything forever and everywhere at times; right now, the vestige of old nick is deeply mystical and being aligned with Tao.

So now to search for Kogi thoughts and images - I searched everywhere for liberation and it was here all the time.

Then you should know that all is context, Nick?

Misbegotten teachers, with their misbegotten messages, are as meaningless as misbegotten demands.

Try searching with an open hand, catch what you can, without serving up the rest.

Of course it is here all the time.

Who can say where the beginning becomes the end inside a serpent eating its tail?

This round and round is why I suggested Kogi cosmology, it turns all this on its ear, conceptually, but it too says we are killing this world.

Joe- Point well taken, but when I read your message I recalled driving through Hopiland in a summer rain with smoky vistas of cathedral mountains, cactus in bloom, and the ditches full of wine, beer and whiskey bottles.

I'm afraid the Elders are dying out, and the irony is it probably will be the Xbox generation that will snuff out the candle.

Indi - this is amazing. I'm about half way through.

They had me at "Iron tools are useful, but shoes would break the contact between people and the earth"

Thank you so much for posting this

I've had "day dreams" about a place like this for as long as I can remember

I'm glad you picked up on this, JC.
I was hoping you would.

~There is no God and we are his prophets.~

-Cormac McCarthy-

Man is superior to the stars if he lives in the power of superior wisdom. Such a person being the master over heaven and earth by means of his will is a magus and magic is not sorcery but supreme wisdom



'The nationalist not only does not disapprove of atrocities committed by his own side, but he has a remarkable capacity for not even hearing about them'.....'Every war when it comes, or before it comes, is represented not as a war but as an act of self-defense against a homicidal maniac.'.....'In times of universal deceit, telling the truth will be a revolutionary act.'.....'War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.' George Orwell
