A Hopi Prophecy

 

Native Americans: the “People of Peace”

"When the earth is dying there shall arise a new tribe of all colours and all creeds. This tribe shall be called The Warriors of the Rainbow and it will put its faith in actions not words."

The meltdown of the financial markets may be the last of our problems when the systems of nature that support us continue to degrade to a point of complete failure. Most of us are very concerned about the future our children face.

We need a Council to monitor corporations and enforce ecological standards are met. We also need to de-centralize power so communities make the bulk of the political decisions that affect them [see framework for Equitable Governance].

Sustainability and abundance can be synergistic. In fact, abundance depends upon sustainability. Peace, air, water and land issues are clearly our collective responsibility.

We need to create Earth Council [an evolution of the UN] to address global issues in a cooperative and non-violent way. A planet wide cease-fire, achieving peace, is no longer just a good idea but imperative to the very survival of our children and the myriad of beings that share our planet.

It is not “our” planet, but a place shared by many life forms. And these life forms work together in amazing symbiotic ways that sustain our planet. We need these life forms for our own survival. Scientists are only now realizing the importance and function of co-evolution.
