Who will save the Earth in her darkest hour of need?

The earth is in dire need of salvation. She is no longer the healthy and beautiful planet ,our home, that she once was. Once she was strong and self sustaining - that was until she met her last inhabitants, the human race. At first it was love at first sight, as man continued to live and respect her laws of nature. All creatures lived off of the land and in harmony.

But man soon had bigger ideas. It was hard work to live as a hunting and gathering society. He thought there must be an easier way to exist? So he developed an agrarian lifestyle with some of the animals kept as livestock. He soon discovered the power he had by selling his crops and livestock to others. The lure of making more money then developed to other lifestyles throughout time such as living in towns with small craftman shops to eventually large cities with huge polluting factories.

Greed took away any concern as to how the earth was being effected. In order to keep expanding man had to clear more land of the oxygen producing and cooling trees. Factories belched out toxic fumes that began to erode away the atmosphere's protective layer of ozone and increase the earth's temperature. And then the climates started to change. The earth began to speak out loudly and fight back with catastrophic natural events such as hurricanes, earthquakes, devastating floods and deadly tsunamis.

We have now fast forwarded to the way things are today. We are the current inhabitants of a very sick and angry Mother Earth. So who will save her and us? There is a prophetic Cree legend that says just when things seem the bleakest, there will be those who will speak out and lead others back to the ways where man, the animals and Mother Earth all lived in harmony. All will not be lost if only we will listen and return to those ways. The following legend of the "Eyes of Fire" tells of this prophecy. .

Warriors of the Rainbow

Last century an old wise woman of the Cree Indian nation, named "Eyes of Fire", had a vision of the future. She prophesied that one day, because of the white mans' or Yo-ne-gis' greed, there would come a time, when the earth being ravaged and polluted, the forests being destroyed, the birds would fall from the air, the waters would be blackened, the fish being poisoned in the streams, and the trees would no longer be, mankind as we would know it would all but cease to exist. There would come a time when the "keepers of the legend, stories, culture rituals, and myths, and all the Ancient Tribal Customs" would be needed to restore us to health, making the earth green again. They would be mankind's key to survival, they were the "Warriors of the Rainbow". There would come a day of awakening when all the peoples of all the tribes would form a New World of Justice, Peace, Freedom and recognition of the Great Spirit.

The "Warriors of the Rainbow" would spread these messages and teach all peoples of the Earth or "Elohi". They would teach them how to live the "Way of the Great Spirit". They would tell them of how the world today has turned away from the Great Spirit and that is why our Earth is "Sick".

The "Warriors of the Rainbow" would show the peoples that this "Ancient Being" (the Great Spirit), is full of love and understanding, and teach them how to make the "Earth or Elohi" beautiful again. These Warriors would give the people principles or rules to follow to make their path light with the world. These principles would be those of the Ancient Tribes. The Warriors of the Rainbow would teach the people of the ancient practices of Unity, Love and Understanding. They would teach of Harmony among people in all four corners of the Earth.

Like the Ancient Tribes, they would teach the peoples how to pray to the Great Spirit with love that flows like the beautiful mountain stream, and flows along the path to the ocean of life. Once again, they would be able to feel joy in solitude and in councils. They would be free of petty jealousies and love all mankind as their brothers, regardless of color, race or religion. They would feel happiness enter their hearts, and become as one with the entire human race. Their hearts would be pure and radiate warmth, understanding and respect for all mankind, Nature and the Great Spirit.

They would once again fill their minds, hearts, souls, and deeds with the purest of thoughts. They would seek the beauty of the Master of Life - the Great Spirit! They would find strength and beauty in prayer and the solitude of life.

Their children would once again be able to run free and enjoy the treasures of Nature and Mother Earth. Free from the fears of toxins and destruction, wrought by the Yo-ne-gi and his practices of greed. The rivers would again run clear, the forests be abundant and beautiful, the animals and birds would be replenished. The powers of the plants and animals would again be respected and conservation of all that is beautiful would become a way of life.

The poor, sick and needy would be cared for by their brothers and sisters of the Earth. These practices would again become a part of their daily lives.

The leaders of the people would be chosen in the old way - not by their political party, or who could speak the loudest, boast the most, or by name calling or mud slinging, but by those whose actions spoke the loudest. Those who demonstrated their love, wisdom and courage and those who showed that they could and did work for the good of all, would be chosen as the leaders or Chiefs. They would be chosen by their "quality" and not the amount of money they had obtained. Like the thoughtful and devoted "Ancient Chiefs", they would understand the people with love, and see that their young were educated with the love and wisdom of their surroundings. They would show them that miracles can be accomplished to heal this world of its ills, and restore it to health and beauty.

The tasks of these "Warriors of the Rainbow" are many and great. There will be terrifying mountains of ignorance to conquer and they shall find prejudice and hatred. They must be dedicated, unwavering in their strength, and strong of heart. They will find willing hearts and minds that will follow them on this road of returning "Mother Earth" to beauty and plenty - once more.

The day will come, it is not far away.

The day that we shall see how we owe our very existence to the people of all tribes that have maintained their culture and heritage. Those that have kept the rituals, stories, legends and myths alive. It will be with this knowledge, the knowledge that they have preserved, that we shall once again return to "harmony" with Nature, Mother Earth and mankind. It will be with this knowledge that we shall find our "Key to our Survival".

    I hope for the day that mankind will see what he is doing to the EARTH MOTHER and that it is soon before the earth dies.
    Mankind must learn that we do not own this earth but only hold it trust for our CHILDREN and there CHILDREN CHILDREN.
    Stop and think of what we are doing to the EARTH MOTHER.

    Jesus Christ's real name is Jeshua ben Joseph, not the christian fabrication commonly used today. If you want to ad some real insight to your repertoire I recommend the you look into the story of the Creator and the Creation offered in the Urantia Book. In the book it makes a few statements about the superior Red race, and it history and migration across the globe. In the 1850's, and uneducated 19 year old named Andrew Jackson Davis channeled wisdom of a similar nature and in the 1750's Swedenborg channeled again a very similar revelation. Look it up. Very little that the christians offer is truly meaningful, but the thread of truth does exist. Everyone needs to awaken to their inner truth but few will take the risk. Fortunately for all, those of us who have made that choice carry more cosmic energy than those who reject the inner wisdom. It remains to be seen if good will overtake the evil in this place, but what matters most is our own personal journey within, the one where we discover the soul as our true nature and not the ego. The Spirit fragment bestowed upon all life is sacred from the moment the 2 reproductive cells merge. In the human being they form at the medulla and it is at that juncture that the cosmic flow of life giving energy enters our body. We just have to learn how to re-awaken to it's proper use. Once we see it in ourselves, we will automatically see it in others.
