IS THERE LIFE BEYOND SELFIES AND TERRORISM

The Prophecy of the 8th Fire

They will come to a fork in the road. One road will lead to Materialism and Destruction…..for almost all living creatures….The other road will lead to a Spiritual Way upon which the Native People will be standing…This path will lead to the lighting of the 8th fire, a period of eternal peace, harmony and a “New Earth” where the destruction of the past will be healed

Is there a life beyond Selfies and Terrorism? I think so but I think that LIFE in these times will only be found in the very smallest things…the big things are collapsing and they are destined to continue to collapse….this time we are living in has been predicted and seen by every religion from the Bible: “I saw a New Heaven and a New Earth.”  to the Hopis

In 1970, Dan Katchongva, Sun Clan leader from the village of Hotevilla, who died at age 112, spoke about deteriorating conditions of our time:

We have teachings and prophecies informing us that we must be alert for the signs and omens which will come about to give us courage and strength to stand on our beliefs. Blood will flow. Our hair and our clothing will be scattered upon the earth. Nature will speak to us with its mighty breath of wind. There will be earthquakes and floods causing great disasters, changes in the seasons and in the weather, disappearance of wildlife, and famine in different forms. There will be gradual corruption and confusion among the leaders and the people all over the world, and wars will come about like powerful winds. All of this has been planned from the beginning of creation.

I was thinking about all this last night when I couldn’t sleep..…It’s a hard time now as the old collapses and the new  has not yet come in: so many people I talk to are in some sort of crisis whether it’s a relationship crisis, friends and family dying suddenly, health crisis, financial crisis…..for me it’s financial as it is for some of my friends but last night I realized that even if I had a million dollars, though I would probably sleep better, it would not make that much difference really…not in these times

I thought about a friend I talked with yesterday and how she had said that it’s hard for her to accept that she probably won’t see several of her friends again..

“I would have to fly” she said “and it’s too dangerous to travel”

What would money be spent on now?..on the basics of life I thinkpeaches and hydrangeas 2 .milk.stilllife2

The time for big houses/mcmansions is over and it’s the small house/small spaces that more and more people are moving to. That’s why the tiny hobbit stoves made in England for trailers, cabins, shepherd’s huts etc are in great demand.. PAINTING THE HOBBITI can barely stand this world anymore–maybe it’s worse in the US where there’s a mass shooting every week..maybe there are some peaceful places left…not here though…I can’t stand the news, politicians, the hate, the advertisements for flu shots, selfies and mountains of junk email..

So now, at least for me, I have to focus on the smallest things like a fire in the wood stove in the evening….shimmering woodstove with fire
