Meet Luckner Timothee.

He’s one of the gems mentioned in a recent post, not entirely complimentary, about social media. You have met him before, in a previous posting here. Luckner has a passion, which he shares freely with the world, and a few days ago he … well, I’ll let you read his message.

I hold no animosity towards anyone; my battles are with self, these are my demons and only in recent months have I known of their existence. They are more dangerous than any one person because they live with me.

One of my biggest battles are between two spirits, I will name one a nigger and one a man. Fact is there is a nigger in all of us whether you’re black, white, Hispanic or just a nigger: so this is no matter of race. This was built by our educational system; a worker’s mindset to do the same mundane things for the rest of our lives.

The nigger in me says “Forget your PASSION, forget your GOALS, your past jobs were perfect, keep them you can get a set pay check, you can party and have fun, remember how you love to party.”

However the man in me won’t accept such mediocrity, it strikes me down at night like angel of death. It chokes my weak spirit in a deep sleep and says I can do better. It binds me to the reality that acceptance is failure and not failure itself.

Fact is I can fight that nigger in me, I did it for years, I called it acceptance but the man in me is what I can’t battle with anymore to battle this spirit is to die physically and mentally and honestly there is no religion that can save me from that crucifix because in my mind physical and mental death is just the beginning of dying spiritually.

Sign – Luckner Timothee ( farmer / Actor / Dancer / MartialArtist / Familyman / Volunteer / Boy / nigger / Man) in that order!

Find your passion. Live it!

About Running Elk

My given native name, Running Elk, was bestowed in 2008 as I took my first steps as a fully fledged Medicine Man of the Zuni tradition. A most unlikely candidate for the role, my journey as a healer began some four years prior. The detour onto the shamanic way was most unexpected, yet has been one of the most rewarding challenges to date.

  1. I can relate to what he is saying. Additionally, one feels that one can beautifully blossom is life without any internal battles… without any friction between the opposites. That involves just effortlessly observing, without the separation between the observer and the observed.

      Wonderfully expressed, Thomas. That was one of the hardest things for me to get to grips with. And, if truth be told, my inner nigger, many times, still gets the upper hand and I’m stuck on the outside… 🙂

  2. Don’t be too prejudiced against the (apparent bad). Walt Whitman loved the bad just about as much as the good (and often looked at them as one). Just look at what you are (what you do) without separation and be open to change. And, as Oscar Wilde said: “We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.” 😉
