Being 'Spoor' Conscious ...

I'm busy reading, 'The Art of Tracking - The Origin of Science,' by Louis Liebenberg.  The following paragraph caught my eye ... I became very much aware of the 'spoor' people leave all over their own 'consciousness':

Perhaps an equally important factor in nature conservation is the development of a general awareness of wildlife among the general public. Ignorance by the public at large may well he the most dangerous threat to the survival of many species in the face of "advancement" and "progress". Even keen nature lovers are often unaware of the wealth of animal life around them, simply because most animals are rarely seen. I once encountered a group of about a dozen hikers who walked right over a perfectly clear leopard spoor. Not one of them noticed it, simply because they were not "spoor conscious". To them the leopard simply did not exist. Yet to find a fresh leopard spoor in the wilderness adds an exciting new dimension to hiking.  Such a wilderness may appear desolate to the untrained eye, hut if you are at least "spoor conscious·· it will he full of the signs of wildlife. Even if you never see the animals, the knowledge that they are there is enough.  By reconstructing their movements from their footprints, you may he able to visualise the animals and in your imagination actually "see" them. In this way a whole story may unfold, a story of what happened when no one was looking.

If you are familiar with the art of tracking, then you'll know and understand that total awareness is necessary.  Liebenberg describes it as follows:

According to a popular misconception, nature is "like an open book" to the expert tracker and such an expert needs only enough skill to "read everything that is written in the sand". A more appropriate analogy would be that the expert tracker must be able to "read between the lines". Trackers themselves cannot read everything in the sand. Rather, they must be able to read into the sand. To interpret tracks and signs trackers must project themselves into the position of the animal in order to create a hypothetical explanation of what the animal was doing. Tracking is not strictly empirical, since it also involves the tracker's imagination. Generally speaking, ore may argue that science is not only a product of objective observation of the world through sense perception. It is also a product of the human imagination.  A creative hypothesis is not found or discovered in the outside world, it comes from within the human mind.

This is exactly the reason why the Bushman and the Australian Aboriginal, actually any hunter-gatherer or any tracker worth his salt are able to read people so well.  You can't hide anything ...



Whatever you do, think or hide deep within ... left a spoor over your consciousness.  Depending on the skill of the 'tracker,' he or she can pick things up that you might not be able to see or feel ... because you're not that aware or conscious yourself.

In a world where most of us have lost the ancient skills, we are now safe to hide our little souls and secrets ... because their are very few trackers that can read the spoor ...

I have been in relationships where a lot of doors were shut, because the other person lives in a world without openness and honesty ... but, the spoor is clear for those who can read it, read between the lines and construct the full picture.

In the presence of a 'tracker' these people soon feel very uncomfortable and they run around trying to shut doors, kick dust over evidence and jump from rock to rock ... so that you can't read the markings on their consciousness.  They can see in your eyes, what you see, they can feel how the picture forms and they'll run like rabbits to hide from you ...

Trackers are hunters and the spoor is not the only things they see, they can also sense the levels of energy in those they track ... they can pick a weakness and they can read between the lines and they can construct the full picture.

Every thought that flutters through your mind affects your energy levels ... so does every unconscious act leave a blood trail across your own consciousness ... to be picked up by those who can read all the signs.

Due to the highest levels of unconsciousness every known by mankind, people now get away with things, because they can hide ... but those who can read the spoor can still see them for what they are.  This skill is deeply connected to consciousness ...

There is nothing as pathetic and destructive as a dishonest human being looking you straight in the eye, feeling very confident that you can't see the blood trails of dishonesty they've left.  They live with a lie which is impossible to hide.  They'll walk past things of beauty, not recognising it ... as they are so busy covering up their own dirty tracks ...
