“Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn’t go away.” ~ Philip K. Dick


There is something terribly wrong in our world. The Native American people have a term — wetiko — that can really help us to contextualize and get more of a handle on the ever-unfolding catastrophe playing out all over our planet. As my research deepens, I am continually amazed that so many different spiritual wisdom traditions, as well as creative artists, are each in their own unique ways, pointing out wetiko.

Wetiko — which can be likened to a virus of the mind — works through our unconscious blind spots, which is to say that it depends upon our unawareness of its covert operations within our own minds to keep itself in business. There is no one definitive model that fully delineates the elusive workings of wetiko disease, but when all of these unique articulations are seen together, a deeper picture begins to get in focus that can help us to see it. Seeing how wetiko works — both out in the world and within our own minds — is its worst nightmare, for once we see how it is playing us, its gig is up.
