A Hopi Elder Speaks

“You have been telling the people that this is the Eleventh hour, now you must go back and tell the people that his is THE hour, and there are things to consider…

Where are you living?

What are you doing?

What are your relationships?

Where is your water?

It is time to speak your truth, create your community. Be good to each other. Do not look outside yourself for the leader.”

 

Then he clasped his hands together, smiled and said. “This could be a great time! There is a river flowing now very fast. It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid. They will try to hold onto the shore. They will feel they are being torn apart and will suffer greatly.

 

Know this, the river has its destination. The Elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open and our heads above the water. Look around and see who is there with you and celebrate!

 

At this time in history we are to take nothing personally. Least of all, ourselves. For the moment that we do, our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt.

 

The time of the lone wolf is over. Gather yourselves! Banish the word struggle from your attitude and your vocabulary. All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.

 

We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.”

Scarcity vs abundance, its all in your head

 Our society teaches us to think with a “lack mentality” – that there isn’t enough in this world and that we have to compete for everything
• In order to receive you must give, and in order to give you must receive
• To gain more of anything, you need to work against “lack mentality” and give that very thing away that you desire.
 
If you want more love, give more love. If you want more money then you must  find  joy in giving money to others. For it is more blessed to give than to receive. There is a universal law that says what you give out in life will be multiplied by the very nature in which you give it. “Give to other people, and you will receive. You will be given much. It will be poured into your hands–more than you can hold. You will be given so much that it will spill into your lap. The way you give to other people is the way God will give to you.” The secret of wealth is helping others get what they want. What you want for yourself, want more for others.
 
Abundance Mentality
 
Abundance Mentality is characterized by generosity, and a sense that no matter how much or little you have, there will always be enough resources to go around. The mind is not burdened with concerns about survival, and all a person needs is carried within themselves and the social group and land of which they are an integral part. Material possessions and knowledge are not hoarded, but accepted and shared. There is a sense of connectedness and belonging that guarantees eternal personal security and health.
Scarcity Mentality
 
Scarcity Mentality is characterized by disconnectedness and a greedy focus on the individual. Material possessions and knowledge are gathered and jealously guarded to build personal power, with efforts also made to prevent others from doing the same. The mind is consumed with thoughts of day-to-day survival. Because this paradigm cannot support a person in a sustainable way indefinitely, a sense of helplessness emerges. This leads to a belief that ultimately there is no hope for long term satisfaction of basic needs, and so the individual’s focus shifts away from survival needs and into the realm of sensual gratification. “If tomorrow there is no hope of escaping pain, loss and deprivation, then seize what pleasures today may offer.”
 
“I need more!” + “There’s not enough for me” = Scarcity Mentality
 
“Share with group” + “There’s enough to go around” = Abundance Mentality
 
Scarcity Mentality – Me, mine, my own, more, now, separation, destruction, non-Indigenous.
 
Abundance Mentality – Us, ours, shared, enough, soon, connectedness, creation, Indigenous.
 
Scarcity Mentality is a Western construct, a cultural disease that has infected our Indigenous ideologies and begun to eradicate the Abundance Mentality that is essential for the future survival of all life on this planet.
 
The shift to Scarcity Mentality thinking represents a shift away from the paradigm of relatedness and communal living, towards autonomy and individual gratification. At its core, this is a shift from Indigenousness to the relatively recent construct of non-Indigenousness. Non-Indigenousness is nothing more than separation of self from nature. Everyone on the planet was Indigenous until relatively recently in human history, and if we can’t return to that soon, this Scarcity Mentality is going to eat our planet alive.
 
Abundance Through Unity
 
For centuries systematic giving has been a custom in most cultures and is referred to by various names. It is indeed an indigenousness system by which the community would band together to help those in need. They did not rely on government or outsiders they would take up a collection or take turns helping those who were less fortunate. People are rediscovering this method for creating great abundance.

Wisdom from Science

A human being is part of a whole, called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something apart from the rest…a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. ALBERT EINSTEIN

Age of Attention

Let’s begin by bringing everyone up to speed with the currently accepted picture of reality and how modern science has rediscovered ancient wisdom.

Discovery number one: The old understanding that everything in the universe is made of either energy or matter is wrong. In fact, our new ability to peer into the life’s of atoms have demonstrated clearly that the protons and neutrons that we thought were solid are not. They are themselves made up of energy particles that seem to pop in and out of existence within our 4 dimensional reality. Where they go, is still a mystery but the fact that they are not always here has been repeatedly proven.

The age of Attention has begun: The information age has grown up and created a completely new human condition. This has been recently recognized and dubbed The Attention Age. Now that a person has instant access to all the information he could ever ask for values have shifted away from the information itself and to the attention span of the individual.

Those who fail to grasp this drastic change, are doomed to a treadmill ride to Nowheresville.

This Point of Attention, is discribed as a sentient human beings instant by instant reality. It is made up of three equal sources of information:

  1. Stimulation from the corporal bodies biological sensors as they monitor the local four deminsional universe.
  2. Memories of past experiences brought up by this stimulation or the brain may be in a state of constant restimulation of habitual behaviors and thoughts.
  3. Predictions of potential outcomes as the analytical mind attempts to creat a rational chain of experiences.

Discovery number two: Using exiting new scanners it is possible to examine in the 4 deminsions the activity of the human brain. It has been found that the brain is a very plastic organ. It is in a state of continual change. This change follows the Point of attention like a needle carving out a wax record. MANY of an individuals behaviors are simply well worn physical neuro networks in the brain, that are easily stimulated because of the numberous connections to other sensations and experiences held in the brain. Until now it was not recognized that these hardwired behaviors can be physically rewired with proper education and practice.

Modern science now has a clear picture of what happens in your brain as you deal with life. The physical brain is much more plyable than we ever imagined. This discovery explains how and why some of us are successful, while others of us are sick.
