While having a morning walk, i saw many plants that grew along the road whether be it a grass, herbs or tree. I see all of these as food and medicine but i ask my self why there are still many people got sick and die of illness?
My fellow have answered me and say: ” People dont use it or they dont know about it.” and into my mind i say that people ignorance lead them to death.
People now-a-days refuse to be cured by nature. They refuse to be healed with our Traditional Medicine. They refuse to embrace the teachings of our ancestors but instead embrace the modern culture whether be it on religion or medicine.
The Filipino People have their own name. Some of us consider our race as Maharlika and as a Great People of the Orient Pearl we have our own God which is the Creator and giver of Life.
Our God gives us life and continue to bless us with Life.
When modern religion came to our land, they bring their Cross and their sword and kill those who will not embrace the modern religion they have brought.
Embracing new religion in our land also brings death for the old tradition and give birth to new culture. With these most of the ancient wisdom of our ancestors have been forgotten. When we get sick, we need to have money to see doctor. Need to have money to buy medicine. Need to have money to bury our dead.
In the old days when we die, our body becomes part of the Earth and through our Body we give life to plants that becomes healing plant and trees to heal our Dis Ease.
Our Grand Parents are calling now as Undas ( day of the dead or dia del muerto) is coming. They are calling us now to come Home and reMember the old ways as they have taught us to live by.
