Seeking Wisdom

from "Vodou Visions" by ordained Manbo priestess Sally Ann Glassman of New Orleans

Obatala, from "Vodou Visions"

As I read blog responses, FaceBook posts, twitter and social media networks we are not able to disagree and respect each other.

We are quick to call each other names or give disrespectful tones and attitudes if we disagree with what is said. 

As it goes, disrespectful and violent language opens the way for violent action.  History shows us this over and over and over again.

We need the guidance of wise Grandfathers due to age, experience and spiritual development.  In all civilized societies, those in harmony with nature the elders were responsible for a community. 

We need Elders, the men and women, who have survived the test of time by building families and communities.

We need our wise Elders we have created dysfunction in our communities. 

There is so much we do not know.
