Coreservation: One Hypothetical Step Towards a Peaceful Ancient-Modern Way
A few days after watching Avatar, I scribbled the following, "I can only describe it as that I caught a strong flash or two into howwe (a community of people serious about changing the way we live andwork together on the planet) were going to be living, working,surviving and ultimately thriving "together" in the near future.Ironically, just as I thought that I was beginning to see a clearlandscape of my personal life mission/purpose, what flashed over me,I've never even imagined before...I saw what Mikki refers to as"tribes" of heart-God-centered people actually living on and off theland in a future-ancient way. I realized that one potentialinterpretation of the prophetic "war" to take place (much like in thefilm) and written about in many of the spiritual texts was actually aninternal war which is and would continue to rage within each of us whowere willing to seriously "live this change." More specifically, howmuch would we be willing to let go of, relative to what we currentlythink we "need to have" for EVERYONE to live a balanced and abundantlife TOGETHER... It is almost like the movie had so much power andpurpose behind it that that it was actually a divine GPS point loadedinto a master rescue plan for individuals and humanity as a whole toexperience and instantly become a bit more enlightened relative to howwe are supposed to live peacefully together here on Earth."
Well, the least I could do is attempt to describe my experience in a bit more detail. Pandorais here, right beneath our feet and directly below the trillions oftons of scrap automobiles crawling all the way home on the 101 thisafternoon. Something went wrong didn't it? When did things really takea turn for the worst? Hey, remember the people who lived here beforeeverything started to get really weird... I think we still call themthe Natives? Well, I remember someone once telling me that a long timeago, they clearly expressed a strong intuition that the newbies toNorth America were going to "fall to materialism and destroy the LivingEarth." Oh yeah and either kill the Natives or push them off the landthey've lived on for thousands of years. So now that we're clear onwhen the unbalance began, we can at least get an idea of what not torepeat and at best realize where we ought to begin again...
Itmakes sense that the key to healing our people and planet would bethrough the people indigenous to the land - in general, the ancienttribes around the world all share the following basics: 1) respect theGreat Spirit 2) respect the Land, Animals and Man 3) work hard, shareand celebrate life all together. If you wish, you can throw in 4) create beautiful and timeless art, design and entertainment. You can also add 5) eating healthy - that is locally grown, naturally and in proper portions.
Now,I have never really studied politics or economics, so forgive me ifI've got the next bit all wrong but I think that we were suckered onCapitalism. I also think that we were suckered on a very dark form of what'sbeen termed "healthy competition." The type of competition thatinevitably leads to fear, greed and resistance and separation amongstpeople, media, government, and educational institutions. And finally,the type of competition that is addictive and contagious - picked up byother peoples and systems in other places on the planet, setting up aworld in which a few are sick with greed, while a few more aredesperately sick, hungry and praying to the Great Spirit for a tiny bitof relief.
Weknow that the duality of structure will crumble,it has already begun on many levels. There is nothing to fear, this issimply evolution - the end of one way and the rebirth of another. It'stime for some of us to take an exemplary leap of faith toward creatinga new way of going about things, from the bottom up, on every front. Ithas been discussed for decades but the timing is now for many reasons,one of them being that technology needed to advance to a degree inwhich people everywhere on the planet can be enlightened, by example,inreal-time. Call it a hunch, but I feel certain that the needed shiftsto truly leap us towards restoring harmony on the planet will neithercomefrom legislation nor a bunch of activists working from behind theirhome desktop. Throughout history, these leaps have occurred whenindividuals and/or tribes were willing to die for the cause ofretaining or restoring peace. As pioneers into the era of peace, wemust be willing to die to the old ways of material ownership anddivision.
I am aware that many of the people God hasalready connected together, like myself, have adopted the necessarysteps of pure and universal thinking and ways of living. A short timeago and in response to a mini-dialogue on restoring harmony on theplanet, our brother Judah Isvaran posted the following on Facebook:
"Ameeting of the Minds gets to be had...to create the committed actions& Visioning to unfold the possibility for "PANDORA" to existNOW...The Spiritual Warrior's willing to step forth and stand in thedrift to create it."
I look forward to comingtogether with whomever feels compelled to come forward with a thought,insight or master plan for us to give the planet the greatest gift wehumans can give. The true cosmic shift which has already begun does notdepend on governments, dual-party politics or anything else of thatnature, rather a few people who are willing to listen to the voice ofthe planet and risk everything for what comes natural to us as livingspirits. After our initial leap of faithful action, many more willfollow, including institutions, support agencies, governments and more.People will magically come together and work together for the commongood, not just because they "have to" as we've seen in "response" tosay a tragic terrorist attack, but because they consciously andwillingly surrender to the healing Spirit of Love. We will haveeverything we need at each step along the way.
Coreservation: An Oasis of Peaceful Ancient-Modern Living
A working title that basically means Help the Natives help us help one another help Our Mother Earth.The mission would be 1) to coexist peacefully and indefinitely on onespecific Native American reservation, learning the ways of the Nativesand the Land with an intent to co-create a healthy, self-sustainableand thriving ancient-modern way of living and 2) to continuallybroadcast progress and findings to the entire world. If it succeeds,more reservations might become interested in building stronger,self-sustainable communities, and soon enough people in countries allover the planet may soon find their way back to their own Nativepeoples. What did that Brit say, Imagine all the people? Well,we've got to start somewhere. The idea is first to immerse ourselves inlearning the ways of the Natives. Second, to work together with them inbuilding a truly self-sustainable community. And third, bring the ways to other developing coreserations as well asback to the planet's outdated models, systems and institutions.
Whatmight this look like? A group of pioneers would travel to and live on areservation, coexisting with a specific tribe in order to learn firsthand about their traditional ways, culture, needs, struggles, etc. Sound familiar?We would NOT be there to "free" them from their ways, nor would we betrying to impose our culture, ways, mentalities, etc. However, we couldcertainly bring yoga, meditation, fitness, novel methods of consciousteaching, etc. After meeting regularly with the elders, together wecould develop a plan to create the first Coreservation open to"outside" peace workers. Perhaps we could introduce some of thetechnologies which can be used consciously to broadcast peaceful awareness, andraise support for the Natives and the new community. At some point,teachers, translators, nurses, doctors, healers, builders,agriculturalists, etc. would be brought in to facilitate thedevelopment of an Ancient-Modern system of living. I envision childrenbecoming educated in a powerful ancient-modern way. I see people eatingtogether, meditating together, sharing stories around the fire. I seepeace in the eyes of the people. I can experience the magnificence ofthe heavens and know that I am living amongst people who know we areone.
My hope is that what we would learn, co-create andbroadcast to the world would ignite many fires all over the planetwithin existing media, people, governments, and educationalinstitutions. We will live the change together, harnessing blessedtechnologies consciously, while living in harmony with each other andthe planet.
