Prophecies, Dynamic Change, and a New Global Civilization: 2020 - 2030 - 2050

Parliament of World Religion, November 7, 2018, ( Update from June 21, 2018 )

Very Beloved Friends and Relatives,

We pray that 2018 is continuing to unfold, as we approach 2019, as a year passing of high hopes, faith, strength, thanksgiving, gratitude, and courage, no matter what challenges or temporary setbacks we are destined to face. 2018 is proving to be a very critical year, as we continue our journey toward actualizing a new, just, inclusive Global Civilization, a culture of world peace that respects and honors all members of our Human Family and all Life.

During 2017, rapidly emerging global challenges have clearly been demonstrated:

  • Increasing global environmental disintegration, natural disasters, and unforeseen calamities in many parts of the world.
  • Growing financial instability and signs of an inevitable collapse of our corrupt global economic system.
  • Increasing extremes of wealth and poverty.
  • The unraveling of humanity’s social and cultural fabric.
  • Deepening ethnic and inter-religious strife.
  • Increasing impotence and gridlock of outworn political systems and governance structures.
  • Further destruction of Indigenous Peoples and their Sacred Homelands.
  • Persisting unchecked global arms and drug trades.
  • Debilitating behaviors associated with competing ideologies that are unable to meet humanity's basic physical, social, economic, environmental and spiritual needs.

At the same time, we can clearly see dynamically increasing ecological, social, economic, interfaith and Indigenous Movements for Protecting and Restoring the Sacred, rapidly unifying. It is important to remember when looking at this Movement of Movements, just gathered, together,  at the Unity Earth Convergence, Parliament of World Religions, October 31, 2018, Toronto, Canada,  the counsel of Black Elk, Heka Sapa, “The Center of the Universe is Everywhere!” 

A Turning Point

The continuing fulfillment of the Prophecy of the Reunion of the Condor, Quetzal, and Eagle signals the global rise of Indigenous leadership in facing the growing threat of runaway climate change, loss of biodiversity, ecosystemic collapse, and the pollution and poisoning of our global freshwater supplies. As well, there is a growing global understanding and recognition that market fundamentalism, an economic system which encourages massive consumption, has resulted in a global economy that is hostile to the health of Mother Earth, our Human Family and all Life.

This was clearly demonstrated, when a vision of a young Hunkpapa Lakota women, from Wakpala, on the  Standing Rock Sioux Reservation inspired, in less than seven months, a Global Movement to Protect the Sacred.  This vision resulted in prayerful and peaceful actions to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL).

These actions to safeguard the waters of the Missouri River and other Sacred Sites of the Oceti Sakowin, attracted global attention and support. The dedicated, unified and courageous work of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe (SRST), Elders, Young People and the Seven Districts of SRST, generated the formal support of more than 300 First Nations, Water Protectors, Interfaith Movements and US Military Veterans, representing all Members of our Human Family.   

The 7th Generation

The unprecedented, unified actions at Standing Rock and other similar transformational actions around Mother Earth to Protect and Restore the Sacred, highlight the growing global involvement of young people. These young people referred to in prophecies, as the 7th Generation, now represent more than 50% of the world’s population. As well, the Spirit of Standing Rock is now, everywhere.

Members of this 7th Generation are, increasingly, stepping into the global dialogue centered around the need for fundamental change. This emerging leadership of young people, in every dimension of human and community transformation, was long prophesied by Indigenous Peoples.  We have now entered the long-promised Spiritual Springtime and the Emergence of the 7th Generation. 

The young people, the 7th Generation,  of Parkland, Florida, who saw their schoolmates gunned down, rose up to tell the world that it is time to silence the guns with the power of the law.  There is a mobilization of young people from everywhere on Mother Earth to address climate change and biodiversity loss with unprecedented, unified action. One such example is Our Children’s Trust who have filed a landmark U.S. federal climate lawsuit.

This is the time of the emergence of the 7th Generation and the Day that shall not be followed by night! Across the Americas and around Mother Earth, the 7th Generation is resonating with a call for a political, social and spiritual transformation to address an ineffective and unacceptable political and economic system, everywhere all at once.

This outworn, disintegrating global system based solely in a materialistic and mechanistic understanding of life has resulted in a global society where 62 individual human beings have as much wealth as the bottom 3.5 billion. This disintegration continues to increase by the day!

At the same time, we have begun to accelerate the transition to 100% clean, renewable energy. At Stanford University, the Solutions Project is charting the course to 100% renewable energy in 139 countries by 2050.  The direction and harmony of these global changes depend upon the values that are inspiring this change. If these values continue to be about short-term, self-interest in materialistic gains solely, we will continue to experience a deepening cycle of death and destruction. When these values are life-preserving and life-enhancing, we will move forward to a new, just global civilization.

Global Convergence

It is becoming clearer and clearer with every passing day that walking a prayerful, peaceful, spiritual path is the only way forward to a just, sustainable, and harmonious world for all people and all purposes. This is being manifested 

For the first time, the Nation States of Mother Earth finally recognized, through the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, that our Human Family plays a major role in causing an impact on our climate and that we must work cooperatively to address this global challenge. While this unity of understanding between the Nation States may vary, in time, human-caused climate change and biodiversity loss is a reality that all will eventually clearly see and understand.

Part of this Powerful Spirit of Global Change and Transformation is birthing new scientific discoveries, technological breakthroughs, digital communications and innovations that are dynamically increasing. The Internet is bringing dramatic change to cultures and peoples everywhere. The accelerating use of mobile phone, cryptocurrencies, and blockchain technologies are emerging vehicles for financial and other distributed applications that are empowering people everywhere. It is clear that there are new financial and social systems that are emerging with the potentiality and promise to balance and harmonize the growing extremes of wealth and poverty.  

Our Global Storm

Without question, we will witness in 2018 and beyond, a growing Global Storm. This Global Storm, now beginning to visibly sweep the face of our Mother Earth, will prove ultimately, unless we awaken, to be unprecedented in its violence, unpredictable in its course, and sometimes catastrophic in its immediate effects. In 2018, we will witness the driving power of this Global Storm gaining in range and momentum. Its cleansing force, however much undetected and misunderstood, will increase with every passing day. It appears, no place on Mother Earth is protected from the cleansing, healing and unifying power of this Global Storm. 

No matter what challenges may be in our path, we will all eventually awaken to the spiritual and scientific reality that we are all part of One Human Family. A Human Family that is intimately related to all Life, wherein the Hurt of One is the Hurt of All and that the Honor of One is the Honor of All!

Our “Paralysis of Will and Action”

Certainly, there is no lack of recognition by national and international leaders of the global character of these challenges, as we observed at COP21 in Paris, France, at COP 22 in Marrakech, Morocco, at the United Nations in bringing forth the Sustainable Development Goals, and at other International Forums. It is also self-evident in the mounting issues that are confronting all members of our Human Family on a daily basis.

There are many accumulating studies and solutions, proposed by many concerned and enlightened groups, as well as by agencies of the United Nations, for there to be any possibility of ignorance of the requirements to be met to bring about a just, peaceful, and harmonious world for all Life.

There is, however, from our perspective, a “paralysis of will and action” to make the essential decisions and behavioral changes needed to move forward positively and constructively. This “paralysis of will” must be understood, transformed and dealt with resolutely, to collectively reverse our downward global spiral.

The gridlock that supports this “paralysis of will and action” is the reluctance to entertain the possibility of subordinating national and personal self-interests to the needed requirements of concerted global actions. Many times, this “paralysis of will and action ” is reinforced by a deep-seated conviction in the inevitable adversarial nature of humankind. Many Human Beings simply do not believe that we are capable of addressing these challenges and adopting new solutions.

This “paralysis of will and action” is also traceable to the living conditions of the uninformed masses of our Human Family, who speak different languages, are denied basic universal education, and do not have a voice in their future. Under these unjust conditions, they are unable to articulate their desire and need for a world in which they can live in peace, harmony, and prosperity for all members of our Human Family.

The primary question to be resolved is how the present world, with its entrenched systems, patterns of conflict and resignation will make this change?  How, with our collective participation, will we transform our world so that harmony and cooperation will prevail leading to healing of our Human Family, Mother Earth and the establishment of a New Global Civilization.   

A New Global Civilization  

The global change that leads to a New Global Civilization, and a vision of what that New Global Civilization will look like, is what we would like to share. We will do this by drawing on the best spiritual and prophetic sources that we know of from Indigenous Prophecies, the Ancient of Days, Call to the Nations and Black Elk Speaks (books that have been Phil’s constant companion for more years than he can remember), Wisdom Keeper Patricia Anne Davis, a key Indigenous Mentor of Jon’s, the Universal House of Justice, and our many friends, relatives, and elders.

The New Global Civilization, which Indigenous Peoples and other related prophecies speak of is not to be confused–even remotely–with the various new world orders fearfully alluded to by various contending sources!

This New Global Civilization is not a new world order where the extremely wealthy or a secret elite enslave most of humanity for their own selfish and greedy purposes. This New Global Civilization is not a new world order where everyone is forced to look, act and think the same or a new world order dominated by anyone nation-state or a new world order created by an Anti-Christ before an Armageddon.  

The manifestation of this new way of life leading to a New Global Civilization, now unfolding, is based on the full spiritual recognition of the Oneness of the Human Family and is promised by spiritual teachers and faith traditions everywhere on Mother Earth.  This new way of living and resulting relationships will become clearer and clearer to each of us over the coming days, months and years, in our own way and at our own appointed time. Without question, 2018 and each succeeding year will be filled with more unexpected and dynamic changes than ever before.

A primary prerequisite for our success in this journey is our full commitment to the unfettered and independent investigation of the truth for ourselves. This prerequisite is the fundamental obligation of each human being to acquire knowledge and understanding through their "own eyes and not through the eyes of others."  This includes our very careful, in-depth reflection, consideration, and investigation of the sources from which we receive our “news”.

We recognize that the “knowledge of knowledge compels” and that once people know for themselves, they will change the way they feel, speak and act.  This knowledge of knowledge obliges us to wisely see that the world will be different only if we live differently. This knowledge and experience are rooted in gaining an ever-deepening spiritual understanding and purpose in our lives.  This will require changing how we coexist and live together.

The advent of this New Global Civilization was foretold by our Indigenous Peoples, the Ancient of Days and Family and many other Faith Traditions Globally. These prophecies, of the Americas,  include the 2012 Mayan Prophecies, The Reunion of the Condor and the Eagle, the Eighth Council Fire, the Return of the White Buffalo, the Prophecies of Black Elk, The Peacemaker, Quetzalcoatl, Sweet Medicine, Handsome Lake, the Hopi, and many others. These prophecies are firmly and unshakably rooted in the spiritual understanding and consciousness of the Oneness of the Human Family and all Life. From this spiritual understanding and consciousness naturally unfolds the realization of:

  • The Equality of Men and Women!  
  • The Balancing of the Extremes of Wealth and Poverty!
  • The Elimination of All Prejudices!
  • The Unity of Science and Spirituality!
  • Universal Education,
  • The Independent Investigation of Truth and
  • Unity in Diversity.  

A New Global Civilization where the voices, the wisdom, and vision of Indigenous Peoples are justly and respectfully represented and whose ancient wisdom is listened to and acted upon!

The Oneness of Humankind  

The vision of all these prophecies that a New Global Civilization is inevitable is clearly evident. This New Global Civilization is in the process of being founded on the unshakable consciousness of the Oneness of Humankind, a spiritual truth which all the human sciences confirm. Anthropology, physiology, and psychology recognize only One Human Race, although infinitely varied in the secondary aspects of life.

The full recognition of this fundamental truth requires the abandonment of all prejudice–prejudice of every kind– race, class, sexual orientation, color, creed, nationality, gender, the degree of material wealth, everything which enables people to consider themselves superior or inferior to others. Abandoning all prejudice is a great spiritual challenge and requirement for all of us at this time.

The full consciousness and acceptance of the Oneness of the Human Family is the fundamental prerequisite for the reorganization and administration of the world as One, the Home of humankind. Universal acceptance and realization of this spiritual principle are essential to any successful attempt to establish Peace on Earth.

The spiritual reality of the Oneness of the Human Family should, therefore, be universally proclaimed, taught in every school, and affirmed in every nation as preparation for fundamental changes in nation states and the systemic structures of our unfolding global society.  World peace will only be fully achieved when this spiritual reality of the “Oneness” of all Life is realized.  

As prophesied,  organizations like the United Religions Initiative (URI), the Parliament of World Religions and others are promoting interfaith and interspiritual understanding awareness and unprecedented, unified actions. The URI Preamble, Purpose and Principles and organizational framework and integrative scheme of thought are one of the key global movements that are clearly supporting the fulfillment of the prophecies.

URI Preamble and Purpose

Preamble

We, people of diverse religions, spiritual expressions and indigenous traditions throughout the world, hereby establish the United Religions Initiative to promote enduring, daily interfaith cooperation, to end religiously motivated violence and to create cultures of peace, justice, and healing for the Earth and all living beings.

We respect the uniqueness of each tradition and differences of practice or belief.

We value voices that respect others and believe that sharing our values and wisdom can lead us to act for the good of all.

We believe that our religious, spiritual lives, rather than dividing us, guide us to build community and respect for one another.

Therefore, as interdependent people rooted in our traditions, we now unite for benefit of our Earth community.

  • We unite to build cultures of peace and justice.
  • We unite to heal and protect the Earth.
  • We unite to build safe places for conflict resolution, healing, and reconciliation.
  • We unite to support freedom of religion and spiritual expression, and the rights of all individuals and peoples as set forth in international law.
  • We unite in responsible cooperative action to bring the wisdom and values of our religions, spiritual expressions, and indigenous traditions to bear on the economic, environmental, political and social challenges facing our Earth community.
  • We unite to provide a global opportunity for participation by all people, especially by those whose voices are not often heard.
  • We unite to celebrate the joy of blessings and the light of wisdom in both movement and stillness.
  • We unite to use our combined resources only for nonviolent, compassionate action, to awaken to our deepest truths, and to manifest love and justice among all life in our Earth community.

Purpose

The purpose of the United Religions Initiative is to promote enduring, daily interfaith cooperation, to end religiously motivated violence and to create cultures of peace, justice, and healing for the Earth and all living beings.

The Guiding Principles of URI are outstanding. One, among many Principles, that is very important: Members of URI shall not be coerced to participate in any ritual or be proselytized.

Both the Parliament of World Religions and URI welcome Indigenous Faith Traditions as equal and sacred as any other Faith Tradition. These are global movements, among many other global movements, that are uniting and moving us toward World Peace and a new Global Civilization.

The recognition of the Oneness of Humankind calls for no less than the reconstruction and the demilitarization of the whole world. A world that is naturally unified in all the essential aspects of its life–its political machinery, its spiritual aspiration, its trade and finance, its script and language–and yet infinite in the diversity of the unique characteristics of each culture and bioregion.

This promised future will take some faith, vision, patience, time and unprecedented, unified action.  The implementation of these promised far-reaching measures extends far beyond 2020, 2030, and even 2050.

In essence, these prophecies share that, “The time will come when the imperative for the holding of a vast, an all-embracing assemblage to actualize World Peace will be universally and undeniably realized. The elected representatives and cultural and spiritual leaders of the Human Family will attend and participate in its deliberations. They will consider the ways and means to lay the foundations of the Most Great Peace for and among all members of the Human Family. Whether or not the current world leaders of Humanity are prepared to consider these issues, these issues will eventually be fully examined by the Human Family!” This will be accompanied by the rising global leadership of Indigenous Women from every part and dimension of our Human Family.

The Greater Peace: A New Global Civilization

“Then a Voice said: ‘Behold this day, for it is yours to make. Now you shall stand upon the center of the earth to see, for there they are taking you.’ I was still on my bay horse, and once more I felt the riders of the west, the north, the east, the south, behind me, as before, and we were going east. I looked ahead and saw the mountains there with rocks and forests on them, and from the mountains flashed all colors upward to the heavens.   

Then I was standing on the highest mountain of them all, and round about beneath me was the whole hoop of the world. And while I stood there I saw more than I can tell and I understood more than I saw; for I saw in a sacred manner the shapes of all things in the spirit, and the shape of all shapes as they must live together like one being.

And I saw that the sacred hoop of my people was one of many hoops that made one circle, wide as daylight and as starlight, and in the center grew one mighty flowering tree to shelter all the children of one mother and one father. And I saw that it was holy.  

Then as I stood there, two men were coming from the east, head first like arrows flying, and between them rose the daybreak star. They came and gave a herb to me and said: "With this on earth you shall undertake anything and do it."

It was the Daybreak-Star herb, the herb of understanding, and they told me to drop it on the earth. I saw it falling far, and when it struck Mother Earth, it rooted and grew and flowered, four blossoms on one stem, a black, a white, a scarlet, and a yellow. The rays from these streamed upward to the heavens so that all creatures saw it and in no place was there darkness.”     –Hehaka Sapa, Black Elk, Oglala Lakota, Oceti Sakowin

These prophecies, like Black Elk’s, were given when our Indigenous ancestors still rode free on the High Plains of Turtle Island, clearly outline the emergence of a “Hoop of Many Hoops” a “Global Commons” in which all nations, races, creeds, and classes are closely and permanently united in our prior unity and oneness of our Human Family.

This “Hoop of Many Hoops” will be manifested when there is a shared commitment to place the common good ahead of any national, ethnic, religious and selfish interests.   The “Hoop of Many Hoops” is a new Global Civilization that ensures the autonomy of each of its representative members, as well as completely safeguarding the personal freedom and initiative of all the individuals that compose them.  

This Global Civilization, as visualized, will consist of:

  • A new Global Governing System, rooted locally, organized and scaled bio-regionally, and synergized globally. The members of this new Global Governing System, are elected, in a non-partisan, principle-centered manner.  One of the key responsibilities of this Global Governance System, with free, prior, and informed consent is the stewarding and ensuring the sustainable and harmonious development of our global resources and cultures. Another key responsibility will be enacting such laws as shall be required to regulate the life, satisfy the needs and adjust the relationships of all members of the Human Family.
  • The extremes of wealth and poverty will be balanced, with the spiritual and moral understanding that every Human Being has the fundamental right to clean water to drink, healthy food to eat, health care, adequate housing, universal education, and free expression.
  • This rebalancing comes as a result of recognizing that each one of us is a Sovereignty, Ancient, Imperishable, Everlasting, and part of a Whole Living Systems Design.

Again, with free, prior and informed consent, as a fundamental organizing principle, this Global Governance System will carry out the decisions arrived at and apply the laws enacted by this Global Governance System, and will safeguard the organic unity of a Global Commons. Through the use of blockchain and other emerging DLT technologies,  we will multiply our capacity to govern interdependently. Blockchain can perform the core functions of governing bodies and can act as recorders, organizers, restrictors, and incentivize structures of human activity. “Smart contracts” enable better structured, more inclusive decision making, they can handle well-defined tasks, and their supervision and coordination can be handled by the crowd. Blockchain offers the potential for a systemic way to solve collective action problems.

These prophecies clearly stated, long before the innovation of the internet, that a mechanism of world inter-communication would be devised, embracing all of Mother Earth, freed from national hindrances and restrictions, and functioning with marvelous swiftness and perfect regularity. The elders called it the “Everywhere Spirit made physically manifest.” They said that all that had been covered up and hidden during the long spiritual wintertime would be revealed at this time.  A new understanding of security, accountability, and trust would become transparent, with honesty and integrity, as it was in days gone past.

A world language will evolve from among all of our Human Families existing languages. This world language will be taught in the schools of all the nations in addition to their mother tongue.  A world script, a world literature, a uniform and universal system of currency, of weights and measures, will simplify and facilitate unity and understanding among all the nations and peoples of the Human Family.

Science and spirituality, the two most potent forces in human life, will be reconciled, will co-operate, and will harmoniously develop. The manifestation of this prophecy has been unfolding, for instance, for more than forty years, in the work of the American Indian Science and Engineering Society, (AISES).

The press under this global system, while giving full scope to the expression of the diversified views and convictions of humanity, will cease to be manipulated by vested interests, whether private or public. The press will be liberated from the influence of contending governments and peoples.  

The economic resources of the world :

  • Will be organized for the welfare of all members of the Human Family,
  • Will ensure its sources of natural materials will be sustainably and harmoniously developed, and fully utilized without waste.  
  • Its markets will be coordinated and developed, 
  • the distribution of its products and services will be equitably regulated. Destitution on the one hand and gross accumulation of ownership on the other will disappear.
  • National rivalries and prejudice replaced by racial amity, understanding, and cooperation.  
  • The causes of religious strife will be permanently removed, economic barriers and restrictions will be completely abolished, and the inordinate distinction between classes obliterated.
  • Racial, religious and ethnic animosity, rivalries, hatreds, and intrigues will cease. 

The enormous resources and energy dissipated and wasted on war, economic or political, will be dedicated to extending the range of scientific inventions and technological developments, the increase in the productivity of humankind and exterminating disease.

This scientific research will be devoted to:

  • Raising the standard of physical and whole systemic health,
  • The harmonization, integration, and optimization  of the human brain,
  • The prolongation of human life in an ethical manner
  • The ecologically sustainable development of the unused and unsuspected resources of Mother Earth,
  • The furtherance of any other agency that can stimulate the intellectual, the moral, the cultural, the artistic and spiritual life of all members of our Human Family.

In summary, these prophecies foretell:

  • A Global Oneness, encompassing the participation of the entire Human Family, everywhere, all at once, and exercising wise, respectful, sustainable and harmonious development of our vast global resources.  
  • A Global Civilization were life-enhancing Indigenous Cultural, Spiritual and Wisdom Teachings, Sacred Ceremonies and Medicines, Prophecies and profound understanding of our Mother Earth’s Natural Laws, will help to enlighten and illumine all members of our Human Family.
  • A Global Civilization that blends and embodies the ideals of both the East and the West liberated from the curse of war and its miseries and focused on the sustainable and harmonious development of all the available sources of clean energy on the surface of Mother Earth.
  • A Global Governance System where Force is the servant of a Justice that is rooted in Love and Compassion and All Life is sustained by the universal recognition of One Creator.
  • A Global Commons is a goal towards which our Human Family, impelled by the unifying forces of Life is undeniably and swiftly moving.

 The Everywhere Spirit Made Physically Manifest Here on Earth, as Prophesied

All of these future societal and technological changes will be impacted and facilitated by a new distributed model of sharing power and resources. This emergence of the Everywhere Spirit made physically manifest here on Earth, as prophesied, is a direct reference to the emergence of the internet.

The internet itself is an emerging example of this new distributed model. It is not just a new technological innovation, it is a new type of technological innovation that brings out the very essence of technology. What the internet will allow us to do is unlimited.  For many, life online has become central, and the Internet has become an irresistible alternative culture. However even though we are more connected than ever, many people experience being socially isolated and disconnected from each other.

To bridge this isolation there needs to be, grounded in life-preserving and life-enhancing values, a balancing of how we relate to each other, both off and online, to establish, maintain and restore trust, relevance, meaning and involvement in shared concerns. For example, Unity. Earth and the U Day Festival foster real-life community, connect cultures and has led to a Campaign for a New Earth and the establishing the first stage of World Peace by 2030.

This new medium of communication is moving us towards new ways of relating to each other and being able to work and move together toward unprecedented, unified action. We can all think of ourselves as spiritual explorers who have landed in a new hyperconnected world–a world in which we are one heart and one mind in many bodies.

This movement of movements (MoM) is a network of networks and “emergent innovation” is a critical practice for envisioning, understanding and mobilizing new ways of organizing, communicating and cultivating the solidarity and joint actions needed at this time. Ten years ago we called these networks Deep Social Networks with a focus on building trust and producing results.  The impact that we now seek is to create within this network of networks the synergies that empower each of us to achieve our networks missions and take our social change behavior strategies to scale.  As examples, the Imagine Program, where women from all over the world are finding their voice, expressing their power, and becoming leaders in their community or the Brave Heart Society where elder grandmothers are mentoring the emergent 7th Generation of young Indigenous Women.

Deep Social Synergized Networks

We are living in an era of accelerating historical change and uncertainty. We can choose to open ourselves to new ways of being and relating to helping navigate this critical moment in our collective human history, a path that can take on the uncertainty of the present moment and make decisions that affect not only ourselves but have equal concern for unborn future generations.

The way the world works was not invented yesterday. Within the eternal, natural laws, we are in the process of constant change in our everyday way of doing things as we adapt to changing circumstances, threats and opportunities. Do we live in a world with artificially intelligent machines that are leading us to reconsider what does it mean to be a conscious human being in such a world?  The decoupling of intelligence from consciousness is a hallmark of our time. We are destined to learn to live and act in new and creative ways in this unique and unparalleled time of fundamental global change. The manifestation of these prophecies is unfolding in many examples of local, bioregional, and global social change. Here is a video we produced to show some of the key Stops on the Road to 2020!  This will launch an International Decade to achieve the Global Sustainable Development Goals and create Peace on Earth by 2030.

A Reverent Revolution of Radical Hope

We are immersed in individual, group, community, and societal practices that we are not always consciously aware of. As we awaken and remember, we will design new ways of relating to ourselves, each other, and the natural world.  

We have currently been swept along into economic and social systems based upon a win-lose paradigm. These systems frame the real-life games that make up the familiar contests, tests, and challenges of our everyday lives. As players in these finite “games”, we obey the rules and recognize the boundaries, while we are stuck in a win-lose = no win transaction pattern. If not changed, this pattern will continue to lead our Human Family down the path of destruction.

A finite game is played for the purpose of winning, an infinite game is played for the purpose of continuing the play and expanding the boundaries. We can choose to break free from such systems and participate in new kinds of infinite social change strategies to make this transition to win-win leadership and to architect the volition to manifest compassionate action and peace on earth. For example, Compassion Games fosters creativity to develop empathy into action. This approach can leverage elements of cooperation and competition for creative problem solving while sparking community engagement.  We are piloting Seven Actions to Create Peace on Earth with David Gershon from the Empowerment Institute and Matt Turner from Serve Community by working with an innovative school in Kabul, Afghanistan, As well, we are partnering with the EARTHwise Centre and Four Worlds Europe toward the development of New Paradigm Leadership, Thrivability Education, and Global Indigenous Women’s Leadership. This includes supporting the development of the Sacred Circle of the Indigenous Women of Europe.

Dakota Elders always teach children that the purpose of Life is to acquire infinite spiritual qualities like kindness, compassion, love, and forgiveness. To teach children that the purpose of Life is to acquire material possessions is to lead them into a life of unhappiness, and fear for survival, because the material world is finite.

To harness the tremendous potential of globally networked real world infinite games, leaders let go of conventional wisdom and shift their focus from organization-level goals to network-level impact. At this level, we are able to harness the power of the relationships we cultivate and develop. By playing together, we share and create deep trust among network partners, benefiting from the “return on relationships”, convinced that sustained, authentic relationships are the foundation on which all successful collaborative efforts thrive. In this new world, we will understand the “Platinum Rule,” and we will learn to treat others as they want to be treated.

Evolving from operating as single-cell organisms to multicellular structures is where we can accumulate and strengthen our collective capacity to synergize.  In the transformation of the caterpillar to a butterfly, there appear imaginal cells that resonate at a different frequency and cluster together to share and begin to resonate with each other. Mirroring this natural process we have launched SINE (Synergized Impact Network Exchange), a membership alliance offering network exchange services that members and their networks co-create and benefit from. These relationships and exchange services co-create synergized impacts to directly benefit SINE members and the people they serve. Members “trade shares” with each other in an exchange intent on co-creating peace on earth and reviving Mother Earth by 2030.

These relationships strengthen and develop a reverent way of knowing and living within the interrelatedness between people and the natural laws that affirm our individual holiness and our collective wholeness. For instance, in the Dakota worldview, the most important spiritual quality and capacity are "being a good relative." We need to expand and evolve our networks far beyond the walls of our organizations and our own limiting beliefs to make sure that our ego-based power fades and integrates with supporting the capacity of others and ourselves to harmoniously grow and evolve together.

This evolution is the shift from an “Egocentric” to an “Ecocentric” way of organizing together.  This global transformation is being supported and inspired by our growing spiritual awareness of the Oneness of the Human Family and Interrelatedness of all Life. This transformation of consciousness will continue to unfold in our collective journey in co-creating an ever-advancing Global Civilization.  

“Each movement has its strengths and its limitations, which leads to the following proposition: collaboration that interweaves and amplifies the best that each has to offer is our best chance of creating the more beautiful, healthy, and just world we know is possible. We honestly can go further together, and we must—through a movement of movements created at a higher octave, a movement of movements (MoM) birthed from a whole new level of unity-in-diversity, so as to be capable of recreating humanity.”  – Jordan Luftig

Though the Spiritual Path that the Creator has traced for us may at times seem lost in the ominous shadows that are now enveloping a stricken humanity, that the Eternal Light that is continuously shining upon us is of such brightness that no earthly darkness can ever eclipse its splendor.

Though we are small in numbers, and limited as yet in our experiences, powers and resources, the Divine Force which energizes our vision and unprecedented, concerted action is limitless in its range and incalculable in its potency.   

Without question, the enemies whom every acceleration in the progress of our unified work will raise up are fierce, numerous and unrelenting. Yet if we persevere, invisible Spiritual Hosts will, as promised, rush forth to our aid, enable us to vanquish any hopes of our destruction, and will annihilate the forces of disunity. A conscious faith above today’s reason is a call for a Reverent Revolution of Radical Hope.

The final blessings that will crown our ultimate victory are undoubted! The Divine promises given to us are firm and irrevocable. Yet, the measure of the goodly reward, which every one of us is to reap, will depend on the extent to which our daily lives will contribute to the expansion of the vision and mandate at hand and the hastening of its triumph.

Though our work will be long and arduous, the prize which the Great Spirit has chosen to confer upon us is so precious that neither tongue nor pen can fittingly appraise it. The fulfillment of this ultimate vision and the fulfillment of the prophecies of our Indigenous Peoples and the Ancient of Days is assured!

A New World Civilization is in the process of being manifested. No matter what may happen in this temporal plane of existence, we will be and are always together, both in this world and the spiritual worlds yet to come.  

Our heartfelt thanksgiving to those countless Spiritual Visionaries, Elders of All Nations, and Sacred Messengers, since the beginning of time that has no beginning, who have walked the Spiritual Path before us and have empowered our words and our Indigenous Prophecies! We are eternally grateful and thankful! Wopida Tanka!

With Warm, Respectful and Loving Greetings,

Brothers Phil Lane Jr. and  Jon Ramer and Sisters Kahontakwas Diane Longboat and Rev. Deborah Moldow.

A special thanksgiving to my son, Philip Tiger Lane, for digital technology and social media support.

Jon is a proud patron of the work of Four Worlds International Institute. You can support the work of Chief Phil and Four Worlds here.   

Background of Prophecies, Social Change, and a New Global Civilization: 2020 - 2030 - 2050

The first draft of  Prophecies, Dynamic Change and a New Global Civilization was shared at 12 AM, 2012, from Bangkok, Thailand. Every year, since,  I have done my best to update this unfolding “Living Story” of the fulfillment of the Sacred Prophecies.

In 2017, I invited brother Jon Ramer to be an ongoing contributor of emerging digital communication technologies and other related technologies and innovations like Blockchain, Hologram and other emerging Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLT), that will assist and support, as prophesied, the global unfolding of World Peace and a New Global Civilization.

For June 21, 2018, and beyond, we are very honored to have Reverend Deborah Maldow with us, to ensure, as we share the unfolding of these Prophecies, we are always respectful and compassionate to all Faith Traditions that are based in Love and Forgiveness. Thank you, sister Deborah, for your heartfelt contribution and support!

In preparation for our presentation at the World Parliament of Religions, in Toronto OF , Prophecies, Dynamic Change and a New Global Civilization, we are very honored and thankful that respected Sister Kahontakwas Diane Longboat accepted our invitation to review and add changes, as she chooses, of our what we shared on June 21, 2018 . After a careful,  prayerful review and reflection, Sister Diane suggested one change. Our Sister reminded us to use the name Peacemaker when referring to the Sacred Teacher who came and unified and established warring nations into the Iroquois Confederacy The Confederacy still stands strong and is getting stronger with every passing day.

Thank you, sister Diane, for all the wonderful, meaningful and inspiring contributions you have and are giving to Indigenous Peoples and all members of our Human Family.

This Living Story of the fulfillment of the Prophecies we are sharing will continue to be shared!  Your input and suggestions on other emerging local, regional, or global movements for manifesting any dimension of our Vision of Global Peace, please share.

With Warm and Loving Greetings,

Brother, Deksi, Lala and Ate Phil Jr.

Please update your security connections so that this can be posted on Facebook to reach my audience, many of whom are Bahais and would support this movement as goals are similar.
