Well another one of Grandfather’s prophecies is unfolding just as he said. Since he told me of this back in 1962 atop Prophecy Hill I’ve been preparing for this and many more to come in the very near future. Yet with all the preparations I’ve made mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually the reality of it all still makes me feel like I’ve been gutted. Even with all of the visions and visionary nightmares I’ve had through the decades, warning class after class of Grandfather’s warnings, nothing can really prepare you for the real thing such as this pandemic to take place.
Needless to say that I’m deeply concerned for everyone in the Tracker Family and community. I’m not so much concerned about the physical challenges posed by this pandemic but more for the mental and emotional health of all of you and your families. After all so many of you are highly trained survivalists and I have little doubt that what you learned in your Standard Tracker class will easily translate into the circumstances we all face now. I’m even more confident in those who have been through even the basic Philosophy Workshop for that alone will insure your survival and the survival of those closest to you. But here in this latest update I want to add something that may ease your concerns and it deals with the way you look at the ever worsening situation we all face.
There are two ways of looking at and living with the situation we are living in. One option is to get all worked up in fear, follow the masses and buy enough toilet paper to stuff a mattress, (why I guess I’ll never know) OR look upon and live the situation as a challenge, a grand adventure. Look back on our parents and grandparents who survived the dust bowl, the great depression and World War II with extensive rationing and hardship. You see those are the stories we grew up with and as the old ones tell it there is a sort of yearning, an excitement and adventure in their tone and voice. That is what you and I have to do. I look at all of this as a grand adventure, where you are living life close to the edge, where every move has to be calculated. The challenge that this all poses is the most exciting thing because I love challenges where they take you to the bare bones of emotion, empowering my mental attitude to reach the intense heights of adventure.
So take the positive “can do” approach, know that you have the skill to survive and protect you family and those closest to you. Don’t look at this as a hardship or a gut wrenching worry but rather look at this as a grand adventure, a challenge that will test your survival skills, your mental and emotional strength, and a grand way to empower your spiritual life and living with an unwavering trust in the Great Mystery that you will be protected. Its all up to you and your choices. You can choose to live in fear bordering panic or you can choose to make this into one of the greatest adventures and challenges of a lifetime.
I’m praying for all of you. May the Great Spirit Bless all of your Trails, Tom
I just wanted to ask you to look at our Tracker Web Page and the announcement of the upcoming class for the oncoming pandemics and corona virus crisis. I was going to hold this class when we start the new season but this has become such a pressing and frightening issue that it has to be done NOW!!
I just wanted to take a moment and thank Phil Martin publically, (elder and scientific advisor to the Tracker Family) for the latest issue of the Belly of the Beast newsletter. When I received it in the mail a few days ago I was stunned and utterly appreciative of its thorough research and the dedication that Phil put into scientific truth. With all of the garbage that is coming through the internet and word of mouth the information that Phil has provided is beyond anything I would ever have expected. Throughout the years Belly of the Beast has been such a huge part of my foundation, where it would sometimes take me weeks and even months to thoroughly research something, now all I have to do is turn to the Belly of the Beast. Phil, on behalf of myself, my family and the greater Tracker family and community we can’t thank you enough. Blessings to you and Maggie.
I just wanted to give you a quick update on my thoughts about the Corona Virus and things that you should be aware of. First and foremost remember that Panic and Fear are the main reasons that lead people to fail in a survival situation, no matter in the wilderness or in the suburban environment. Part of that fear of course is of the unknown. Remember that recon, knowing your enemy is what the Ancient Scouts were all about and as Grandfather often said; “knowing your enemy is 95% of the battle won” subsequently it remains up to you to do the research for the more you know the more the panic and fear factors are diminished or eradicated. You then can make rational decisions that are not polluted and prejudiced by rumor and ignorance. It is also good to remove yourself emotionally from the situation and look at it as an unemotionally attached outsider. What this does is to further your decision making capacity where truth and fact are not over ridden by emotional involvement. That’s why the old saying, “a doctor who treats him/herself has a fool for a patient.”
Also be aware of people giving advise whether on the internet or word of mouth. Research all rumor and supposed facts, look at the persons’ background and further research what is said or given. Keep in mind that the advice giver my have the best intentions in the world but the best intentions should never over ride truth. I am absolutely shocked by all the selfish schemes out there that try to give advice or sell goods that could kill you all in the name of profit from some ones’ insecurities, fears or sickness. Please check out the person selling/giving thoroughly for that is the only way to arrive at the truth. That is why I so highly recommend the “Belly of the Beast” periodical from Phil but believe me is far from making any profit from his Visionary writing and researching that goes into that newsletter. There you will find truth.
Please, all of you especially as we enter these very dark times, stay in touch with each other, call each other especially those in the Tracker Family that are advancing in years. That is a major part of Grandfather’s Vision where his Tracker Family and the Children of the Earth took care of each other and even reached out to those who are not part of the family.
One last note and that is just a quick mention of two major online classes that I will announced in the mid spring. The first is called, “Grandfathers’ wisdom on age and aging” and the second one is called, “Staying safe from pandemics” where both of these will have a writeup that will come within the next few weeks along with the time of the net-cast.
Finally, my advice to you comes from the place of a survivalist and tracker who has lived it for long stretches of time. When and if it becomes necessary to self quarantine whether by choice or by CDC order that is when the true test of your survival skills begins. If the worst comes then you will be forced to flee back to Earth Mother and there your skills will mean the difference between life and death for you and your family. What I’m saying here is that if the worst is realized please go back to what you learned at the Tracker School because I believe firmly that most of those giving advice have very little survival experience at all.
Love and Blessings to all of you and you’ll all hear from me again very soon.
Ps; Once again, I thank all of you deeply for all of your prayers. I’m well on my way back to full health and coming back stronger and more determined than ever. The corona situation has not only given me a wake up call but an even fiercer determination than ever.
