We have a natural inclination toward nature and natural living. We love folk music, folk tradition, natural fibers, long hair, and our bare feet upon the earth. Was our love of nature and moving folk music exploited and redirected for ulterior aims? The hippies had half the formula needed for our survival. But, they forgot our ancestors. Modern hippies are inviting in people who do not share the love of our ancestral lands, nor do they share our ancestral lines. This is a recipe for disaster. It is time for ethno-shamanism, that is AUTHENTIC shamanism, to re-emerge. Animism will save Erda, Gaia, Mother Earth. But animism and ANCESTOR veneration go hand in hand.
