Anam Cara (Calling the Soultribe)
I call on my tribe, I call on my soulmates, my Anam Cara....
The people of my tribe are easy to spot. They walk with dignity and a straight yet flexible spine, have a divinely wild spark in their eyes and a luscious smile on their lips.
They are neither holy nor enlightened. They have gone through their own hell, had their rage explode, have looked at their shadows and demons, and embraced them. They have cut their umbilical cord in realizing they are not only children from their bloodmother and -father, but also divine children from the Great Mother and Father.
They don't play small, knowing very well what their gifts and challenges are. Because they want to hide nothing, they are open, honest, embodying the raw naked truth. Wildly vulnerable, naked. Because they do not have any resistance to life, like children they are full of energy, curiosity and enthusiasm. The fire is burning in their belly and heart!
The people of my tribe embody the wild man and the wild woman within and recognize them in others. Their wildness within is connected with the wilderness without, living in deep respect and reverence to their own bodies and the body of this Earth. Living in the utmost gratitude for Life every day anew, they hold nothing for granted. They create their own experiences and follow their instincts and intuition. Men and women of my tribe meet on the same level, from heart to heart, respect and appreciate their 'different' beingness, confront without malice, and love passionately without reserve.
People of my tribe often go within to re-connect with their roots, and find themselves, if they have lost themselves for a moment in the noise of the concrete jungle. And then they return to their tribe, so they may communicate and share their dreams and visions, give and receive, offer and be blessed. They live in wild passion, genuine intimacy and deep connection. Alone, they do not feel lost or lonely.
However, they suffer when in complete isolation, and long for their sisters and brothers. You don't have to look for them, nor can you find them. You can meet them only. They are right there. The time has come for our meeting. I call on my tribe!
