If I was allowed one favor, I'd ask.. please don't call yourself Heyoka [/quote] Dammit... Somebody please explain me what is a Heyoka... Cannot accomplish the trinity with the OP if i don't know what he is :) Thank you in advance ! :hf: [/quote] I don't know what it is either. Time for a quick Google search. BRB [/quote] The word Heyókȟa (alternative spellings "Haokah", "Heyoka", "Heyokha") refers to the Lakota concept of a contrarian, jester, satirist or sacred clown. Heyókȟa are thought of as being backwards-forwards, upside-down, or contrary in nature. This spirit is often manifest by doing things backwards or unconventionally—riding a horse backwards, wearing clothes inside-out, or speaking in a backwards language. For example, if food were scarce, a Heyókȟa would sit around and complain about how full he was; during a baking hot heat wave a Heyókȟa would shiver with cold and put on gloves and cover himself with a thick blanket. Similarly, when it is 40 degrees below freezing he will wander around naked for hours complaining that it is too hot. A unique example is the famous Heyókȟa sacred clown called "the Straighten-Outer": http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heyoka [/quote] [quote:Saptaparna:MV8yMDQ1NjE2XzM0MzcyNDIwX0NCOTRBMDBC] When a vision comes from the thunder beings of the West, it comes with terror like a thunder storm; but when the storm of vision has passed, the world is greener and happier; for wherever the truth of vision comes upon the world, it is like a rain. The world, you see, is happier after the terror of the storm... you have noticed that truth comes into this world with two faces. One is sad with suffering, and the other laughs; but it is the same face, laughing or weeping... as lightning illuminates the dark, for it is the power of lightning that heyokas have. —Black Elk, quoted in Neihardt (1959), p160 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heyoka [/quote] See told ya :5a::5a::5a::5a: [/quote]
