~Wetiko~

Have you heard of the prolific mind-virus called Wetiko? According to Native Americans, Wetiko is an evil spirit that invades and pervades human minds. It’s a “virus” of selfishness. A physic pathogen forcing the victim to feed their insatiable needs as if they were starving. It makes humanity become its own worst enemy, much of the time unconsciously.

In its raw Native American meaning, wetiko is an “evil” cannibalistic spirit that can take over people’s psyches, leading to selfshness, insatiable greed, and consumption as an end in itself, connecting to the seven deadly sins and destructively turning our intrinsic godly creative genius against our own humanity. The presence of wetiko in our modern world is behind every form of destruction our species is playing out in it’s mythological narrative, both individual and collective. This mind-virus is so embedded in our psyches that it is almost undetectable and it is our blindness and unconsciousness to it that gives wetiko its power. Yet, by recognizing this highly contagious mind parasite, by seeing, witnessing and acknowledging wetiko, we can break free from its grasp and recognise and potentiate the vast creative powers of the human mind.

Wetiko covertly operates both out in the world and within our minds and underlies every mutliplex form of self-destruction, both individual and collective. Wetiko as a concept reveals itself in the teachings of the Kabbalah, Hawaiian Kahuna shamanism, mystical Christianity, and the work of C. G. Jung amongst many other belief systems, religions, famous books and psychologists.

“It’s delicate confronting these priests of the golden bull
They preach from the pulpit of the bottom line
Their minds rustle with million dollar bills
You say Silver burns a hole in your pocket
And Gold burns a hole in your soul
Well, uranium burns a hole in forever
It just gets out of control.”
~ Buffy Sainte-Marie, “The Priests of the Golden Bull
