“Would you like to save the world from the degradation and destruction it seems destined for? Then step away from shallow mass movements and quietly go to work on your own self-awareness. If you want to awaken all of humanity, then awaken all of yourself. If you want to eliminate the suffering in the world, then eliminate all that is dark and negative in yourself. Truly, the greatest gift you have to give is that of your own self-transformation.” ~Lao Tzu

“This is the way I’ve heard the legend passed down through the ages. ~ A time will come when the Earth and all of life will need our help. At this time a tribe will gather from all cultures of the world. They will be recognized by their spirit connection and life giving actions toward the finned, the winged, the creepy crawling, the standing green growing, the four legged, two legged nations and all that is. They will awaken humankind to find a star inside themselves. This star will guide them to overcome the mountains of ignorance, prejudice, hatred and fear through compassion, harmony and honor. They will find a new song and a new dream. The beautiful bow that hangs in the sky after a storm is a monument to these ones. ~ I believe we are living in this time now. All of us with this vision are the tribe, we are the rainbow warriors, we will heal the world. We are the cherished dream and vision of the ancient ones of long ago.” ~Silversong Cree/Blackfoot

“The innumerable losses of industrial civilization’s collapse will, over time, bring forth a new story and a new relationship with people, resources, things, and the earth. It will necessitate living as if our very breath is a gift and every person in our lives is an opportunity to pass on the gifts we have received. The death of the old paradigm and all of the trappings of industrial civilization will provide space to forge new values, new relationships, and minimize, if not completely obliterate, the concept of debt from human consciousness.” ~Carolyn Baker

“In all ages, in all lands, there have been those who seek truth. This seeking is an individual’s search for something more than self, and much more than the confines of this worldly system. It is the seeker, who understands there is more than what meets the eye, who is not afraid and makes the choice to go into the unknown. The process of awaking has begun, the discovery is underway.” ~Alan Watt – A Course in Deprogramming
