DNA

There is that whole “heritage DNA” thingy around on YouTube and in adverts, and it pisses me off!!! Because the facts are, if you look deeply in DNA, archaeology and anthropology, still there are those two beings which are our ancestors. It is very possible that we all had Adam and Eve. Weird right?

But still… what I want to say… that popularity of DNA tests only tells me one, very sad thing!!! Depressing. Describing how we had changed, we, so called modern human beings, because I still deeply believe, that all those tribes still untouched, not changed, still do it. Still are… much more humans than we are…

Talking.

Telling stories.

It everything, that whole jazz, means how little we talk to our relatives, how little we know about our grandparents and grand-grandparents and… before people were able to write and read our minds, abilities to remember stuff, were so much bigger.

I do not know my father.

Never knew him. My grandpa was hidden from me for 19 years and in fact I was told that he was dead, so imagine me so surprised when he came to me, for a visit, fucking zombie or what? I was shocked…

But still it was only one line. My dad side is a mystery to me and it is very possible, that it will forever be this way. Living with that lack of knowledge who my ancestors were is… painful. I mean really. Aching.

Come on! Look in a mirror. Read books, gather knowledge. We all are amazing mixes of souls before us. But much more important than this how we look like is… what kind of stories we have inside. What kind of weird dreams and memories or even abilities. Issues with some things and love for others. Impossible to be explained. Here are our ancestors. Here they all are. And that “heritage DNA” is just something to take cash from you. I can tell you that you are really white, or you had some Asian or African ancestors. Shape of your nose – not this one changed by the cosmetic surgeon! Come on!!! Your hair, eyes, shape of your mouth… We are open books!!!

Dig into your past. Grab your living elders and take them for a walk and…

LISTEN. Till they are here! Talk to them. Not only to those which are blood related to you, but also those lonely ones needing someone to listen. We all need that elderly wisdom. We are loosing it…
