Thank you for the history of the Cherokee beliefs, as if I give a rats patoot. No bad spirits here. The bad spirits are most likely coming out of a bottle of Old Crow.<quoted text>Be assured that my mind is still and clear. May I ask you a question? Thank you in advance.
Why do you allow the bad spirits to harness you? I will not judge you wrong or right for doing so. I only wonder at your motive for doing so. The kind woman that is the target of your maliciousness has no need for your approval. Neither do I for that matter. I only wonder why you see fit to try vainly at tormenting her.
Everything in the Cherokee environment from corn and tobacco to eagles, deer, and snakes to fire and smoke to creeks and mountains to bad spirits plays a central role in Cherokee myths as well as daily practices. Native peoples do not view themselves as separate from their environment We are a part of it.
Much the same as other native peoples, the Cherokees do not try to rule over nature but instead try to keep their proper place within it. A healer might listen to the spirit of a plant to find out what disease that plant could cure. A hunter might ask the spirits of animals for guidance and forgiveness for hunting them.
In order to respect and cooperate with all of nature, the Cherokee found ways to conserve its parts. When Cherokees gather medicinal plants in the forest, they harvest only every fourth one they find, leaving the other three to grow undisturbed for a future use.
All of these practices contribute to the balance of our world. The Cherokees believe that if the balance of nature is upset, everyone will have trouble. We fear a loss of balance could cause sickness, bad weather, failed crops, poor hunting, and many other problems. Human beings are responsible for keeping the balance within themselves and between the animals, the plants, and most importantly- other people. Can we not be nice to other human beings without ridicule? Is that too much to ask. Thank you again- Cheveyo
You asked and here it is. Your beloved friend is a fake and a hater, cussing like a drunken sailor in one breath and pulling a miss goody two shoes act in the next breath.
Afakebeliever wishes ill upon everyone that don't kiss her grubby butt. She thought she was and is the boss of this topic and no one was allowed to post that didn't play smoochie with her hind end. She still can't get over it without posting hate for those she don't like being here. If you can't read it in her your posts, you are blind.
Enough of her copy & paste spam already. Sometimes one has to act like a human being to be treated like one. I address her posts lightly compared to the way the Fake addresses me. I can't even post the nasty names she has called me. Lady? LOL. In my opinion a spite filled, can't get her way, tantrum throwing nut.
I hope she sends you a nice check for your lovely compliments. Maybe you can buy yourself some fuzzy bunny house slippers to match your housecoat.
