NEO-SHAMANS OF THE NEW MILLENIUM
My Dear Friends,
Everything is in a state of change. Life is moving at such a velocity that you, as physical beings, are straining to keep pace with all the "new" ideas and energies that present themselves for your knowledge and experience.
The Spirituality of the Nineties was a hybrid creature. It was a mixture of knowledge and traditions that are as new as last Monday, and as old as the trees and stoney guardians that stand along the coastline and commune with the sea. In the same way that the United States has become a "melting pot" for the Earth, gathering together a vast number of beings---diverse in race, creed, and national origin---so the faith that ushers in this New Era has become a kind of "soup" that is made up of the best and most flavorful portions of nearly every religious and philosophical tradition that has come before, plus some new elements that are just now making their entrance into physical life and reality.
With a banner of Universal Oneness flying from it's tallest tower, this new creation, which could probably best be called "Millennial Spirituality," is coming into view from behind the smoke of dissention, and the religio-imperialism that has so characterized the last 2000 years.
From the gunshots and angry cries of the Protestant/Catholic uprisings in Belfast, Northern Ireland, to the "Holy Wars" of the Middle East, past the shouts and the complaints of the Humanistic Political Activists, the calls for separation that come from the Aryan Brotherhood, or over threats of hellfire and brimstone from the Religious Right, comes a soft and gentle song that promises to unite instead of divide, and bring healing where once
there was injury.
This is the Spirit that will carry Planet Earth through the "Eye of the Needle," and into the Fourth Dimension. Many voices will cry out, citing reason after reason to cling to the "old ways" of the sword. Still, when the smoke clears away (as it surely will), the vision remaining will be one of peace, tolerance, inner exploration (rather than outer expansion), and goodwill toward men! Yesterday was the "promise." Soon will come the fulfillment.
