I had a recent meltdown that caused me to ask whether Americans [including myself] are spoiled and take for granted all that we have.
Upon arriving at my hotel after an eight-hour drive to Northern Wisconsin, I was shocked, SHOCKED to find I had left my overnight bag at home.
The overnight bag that contained everything I need to make myself presentable each day!
I’m usually very cool, calm and collected, but this was a catastrophe of a high order for me.
But here’s the irony: Within half an hour, I was able to replace all my makeup and hair supplies at the Walmart next to the hotel.
I had the means and opportunity and I was still upset. How’s that for spoiled?
It was a good reality check as to how far I still have to go in my spiritual growth. And I know I’m not alone.
A large portion of the world believes that Americans, as a nation, are spoiled. Is that reputation deserved?
The following is the Hopi Prophecy of June, 2000 from the Elders of the Hopi Nation:
You have been telling people that this is the Eleventh Hour, now you must go back and tell the people that this is The Hour. And there are things to be considered…
- Where are you living?
- What are you doing?
- What are your relationships?
- Are you in right relation?
- Where is your water?
- Know your garden.
- It is time to speak your truth.
- Create your community.
- Be good to each other.
- And do not look outside yourself for your leader.
Ancient Hopi prophecy warned of a time of “earth changes” – a great cleansing involving all four elements. The Mayan Calendar also calls this a time of transformation. Might they explain the interesting weather we’re having in 2012?
Is it a scary thing, or part of the natural evolution of the planet and our consciousness? Let’s take a look.
Signs of the Times
This spring I had three snake encounters, which I found remarkable since I rarely have even one snake encounter in a year. Three is a sacred number in ancient Celtic mythology and religion, representing unity of body, mind and spirit.
And the snake is a symbol of transformation as the shedding of skin represents rebirth.
Taken together, these signs spoke to me of the time of cleansing, transformation and rebirth we are now in, and the importance of gathering all the tools we can to assist us in learning to be all that we were meant to be and using all our talents to help the planet.
If you’re like me, I was taught in grade school that the U.S. Constitution was based on ancient Greek democracy. This is quite a stretch, since ancient Greece government was not democratic.
My research into what children are taught today about the origin of our government is also disappointing.
Apparently the founding fathers simply created it out of thin air, or were influenced by European governments. This depute the fact there was no democracy anywhere in Europe at that time.
The True History of the U.S Constitution
The truth is that the U.S. Constitution is modeled in both principle and form on the Great Law of Peace of the Native American tribe known as the Iroquois.
