Pirahã, an Indigenous Tribe Living in the Now

January 5, 2014

A reflexive Missionary coming to terms with hhe pis own mission and his own faith. The point here is not to direct people from their faith necessarily, if you believe that your faith helps you to be a happier better and more consious person I want you to continue with practising. The purpose for uploading this video is to share a story to teach humility. In this story the reversal takes place in a situation that historically was the beginning of the colonization of the minds of people all over the world. Thats why missionaries traveled abroad. They never listened, they always spoke. They had the opportunity to learn from the wealth of human experience, but they only learned the language of the Other in order to impose their own views. To me that is a crime. See what happens to this man who could not help but listen.
