Native American Spirituality
THE HOPI SPIRITUAL ARK

Teachings that will protect us during the coming times...
The prophecies, instructions and warnings given to us over 1,100 years ago by

Maasaw can be viewed as a "Spiritual Ark" in theses troubling times. The
Spiritual Ark that consists of carefully chosen thoughts, words, deeds and
promises. The sharing and existence of this Ark, is what makes the giving of the
prophecies understandable, and elevates the Hopi prophecies to equal, or
possibly superior, standing with the rest of the prophetic field of information
at this time.

Maasaw told the Hopi to be alert and watchful, and he named specific things they
should do to protect themselves. As we consider these wise specifics, we will
see that they are cautions that we should exercise too.

Make Careful Choices:"

Make careful Choices: When new opportunities are introduced and new advantages
come, be cautious and accept the least harmful things. Choose which path you
will follow -- the materialistic way or the Creator's way. Do not get careless
as time passes and forget your vows to the Creator and the spiritual laws. If
you do, it will be a sign you have forsaken the Great Creator."

Avoid Temptation:

Do not be tempted into anything that will harm your way of life, get you into
trouble, or produce problems. Even though temptation is evil, desire is strong
within us and hard to control. As we pass into the worlds of different ideas,
temptation will weaken us. Avoiding temptation is a key to survival. If you
cannot escape new changes, use them wisely. Don't let them destroy the valuable
elements in your life."

Avoid Pitfalls:

We often step into these very traps because we think they will improve our
lives. On the contrary, they can drain our mind and strength. Deceit is common
among world leaders. Advantageous lifestyles often lead us astray. Modern
concepts will not help balance the natural order on earth and in the universe.

Listen To Your Elders:

Listen to your elders, and you will learn that Divine laws and religion are
important. At one time Hopi learned wisdom, knowledge, and prophecy through
their elders in order to live wisely. It is a pity in these changing times, that
they hear no more, see nor more, nor do they understand. Yet these wise
teachings are the key to happiness and health.

Be Self-Sufficient:

Be Self-sufficient so that you are not dependent upon others for survival. Don't
rely on supermarkets for food and don't be entirely dependent on wages. What
will happen to you if some day the White man's world collapses?

Prepare In Advance:

Take time to review what has happened to you and try to predict what might
happen during the coming year. Once you have done this, ask yourself how you
will handle each thing that does occur. The ancient Native Americans followed a
ritual calendar that forced them to think ahead and prepare in advance, so that
they would not be caught unprepared. Pray for guidance to the Creator, Maasaw,
Mother Earth, and other helper deities.

Use Ancient Teachings As A Guideline:

We look upon our ancient teachings as a guideline used in order to avoid a
downfall for our mistakes. We have learned that through our conduct we can
accomplish good and bad deeds. The old ones say that we have gone through at
least three world catastrophes and each world was destroyed by the same error in
man.

Protect The Laws Of Nature And Spirit. Respect All Living Things:

We must carry on our purpose to protect the laws of nature and spirit which is
our highest priority. Other think that what they're doing is harmless. We think
they are destroying the link between Nature and Man. The signs of warning are
evident in many parts of the world. We all are to be blamed, for we are abusing
our Mother Earth by our mindless actions and by our irresistible urge to better
our way through our own inventive thinking. We have forsaken the warnings of our
ancient fathers, gradually leading ourselves to ruin. We all should hang our
heads in shame.
What we say will pain most people, but we hope it will help them to understand
themselves and reverse their ways toward better behavior for the good of lesser
man and for the survival of our world for the coming generations. We have
learned and believe that one cannot communicate with Nature unless your
existence and behavior are in harmony with the will of the Great Spirit, that he
who knows his heart will also find his way in the future.

Don't Try To Control Others:

Trading blame drains our planet of spiritual energy and causes great harm to all
land and life. Don't try to control others. The spirit dwells within all of us.

Be Satisfied With The Pattern Of Life Given To Us By Our Great Creator:

Be satisfied with the order of our Great Creator, whose light does not blind us
and does not lead us into confusion. Instead, His light brightens the road, so
that we can absorb its great wisdom and live like humans... Perhaps there is
still time for this land to live on under the laws of our Great Spirit and our
Great Creator. These are the things we desire. We are very sad for our life of
today; it is heading down the direction you have created for us.

The tide is gathering, and the high tide which sweeps us away may not be far off.
Our prophecies foretell that times will come when we will periodically recover
our senses and find that some vital element is amiss. Then we will retrace our
steps with fear, not bearing to look back and where we have been. So we will go
forward, backward, forward and backward, our decisions uncertain. This is
happening today in Hopi land, as it is happening in the rest of the world.
So time passes on, and the prophecies of our ancient people begin to unfold.

Many great events lie before us, and we are witnessing with astonishment today
the fact that our ancient's words were right. Live long, for there are great and
exciting adventures awaiting us.

HOPI SURVIVAL GUIDE

Blend With The Land And Celebrate Life

Only through peace is the survival of mankind and our planet Earth possible...
At time's end ... there will be a new dawn of time when the world will bloom
into peacefulness.

1. As you board the Ark, make your own Covenant with the Creator and Maasaw.

That does not mean you will exchange what you are going to do on the Ark for
your own religious faith. While the Ark does function in a relationship with the
Creator, it is not a place of specific religion, nor does it recognize any
religion as superior to others. You do not even need to have a specific
religion, believing in a Divine Creator is enough! This message now is not about
eternal matters, or the afterlife, it is about one thing, SURVIVAL.

2. Live simply, as Maasaw himself lives and don't let materialism control your
life.


3. Practice self-denial.

4. Practice self-sufficiency.

Each of us should possess whatever margin of
preparation we need to get us over humps that may last for long periods of time.
We who live in cities must ask ourselves what we would do if all of our food
supply sources closed down tomorrow. Practicing this is something the
Traditionalist Hopi do as a natural way of life, and it is one of the strategies
that has enabled them to endure for thousands of years. Having learned from long
experience that circumstances can change drastically from one year to the next,
they lay aside enough food each Fall to get them through the next year. If the
worse happens, they are ready. We too are advised to stock our shelves with
enough non-perishable foods to sustain our families when the prophesied
emergencies strike.

5. Change your priorities. Make careful choices.

6. Recognize that it is the Creator's wish to rescue us, and that together with
the Hopi we can rescue the world.


7. Think of attitude as being an equal partner of application. What you think
about what you do may be even more important than what you do.


8. Make your attitude regarding life and the environment a reverent one.

9. Throughout the Ceremonial Cycle there will be dancing in the Ark.
This pursuit we are following has a serious nature, but we know it will be
successful. This awareness keeps us in a state of joy and fulfillment.

10. During the first part of December say prayers for the well being of the
entire world.

What is being done during this season is to prepare the atmosphere
for the coming year. During this period, you will be blending with the world,
and your consciousness of this state will enfold you and affect everything else
you do during the coming year. If people all over the
world are doing this, think of what the effect will be.

11. On December 21, do initiations to bring others aboard the Spiritual Ark:

I've thought for years we need the American Indians to help us learn to survive.  We also need to follow their example of living peacefully with the Earth and with each other.

Hopi Elder, White Feather:



http://www.manataka.org/page112.html  Manataka American Indian Council

FULFILLMENT Of The HOPI BEAR CLAN PROPHESY

Bob Frissel, in his book, "Something In This Book is True…" (Frog Ltd.; Berkeley, California; 1997) relates a story told by Reverend David Young about an encounter in the 1950's.

While driving through a desert in the Southwest, Rev. Young picked up a remarkable Hopi Elder and soon the two began a long conversation about spiritual matters.

"'I am White Feather, a Hopi of the ancient Bear Clan. In my long life I have traveled through this land, seeking out my brothers, and learning from them many things filled with wisdom. I have followed the sacred paths of my people, who inhabit the forests and many lakes in the east, the land of ice and long nights in the north, and the places of holy altars of stone built many years ago by my brothers' fathers in the south. From all these I have heard the stories of the past, and the prophecies of the future. Today, many of the prophecies have turned to stories, and few are left -- the past grows longer, and the future grows shorter.

"'And now White Feather is dying. His sons have all joined his ancestors, and soon he too shall be with them.  But there is no one left, no one to recite and pass on the ancient wisdom. My people have tired of the old ways -- the great ceremonies that tell of our origins, of our emergence into the Fourth World, are almost all abandoned, forgotten, yet even this has been foretold.

The time grows short.

"'My people await Pahana, the lost White Brother [from the stars], as do all our brothers in the land. He will not be like the white men we know now, who are cruel and greedy. We were told of their coming long ago. But still we await Pahana.

"'He will bring with him the symbols, and the missing piece of that sacred tablet now kept by the elders, given to him when he left, that shall identify him as our True White Brother.

"'The Fourth World shall end soon, and the Fifth World will begin. This the elders everywhere know. The Signs over many years have been fulfilled, and so few are left.

"This is the First Sign: We are told of the coming of the white-skinned men, like Pahana, but not living like Pahana -- men who took the land that was not theirs. And men who struck their enemies with thunder.  [First sign of guns.]

"This is the Second Sign: Our lands will see the coming of spinning wheels filled with voices. In his youth, my father saw this prophecy come true with his eyes -- the white men bringing their families in wagons across the prairies.

"This is the Third Sign: A strange beast like a buffalo but with great long horns will overrun the land in large numbers. These White Feather saw with his eyes --the coming of the white men's cattle.

"This is the Fourth Sign: The land will be crossed by snakes of iron.  [Railroad tracks]

"'This is the Fifth Sign: The land shall be crisscrossed by a giant spider's web.   [Electric power and telephone lines]

"This is the Sixth Sign: The land shall be crisscrossed with rivers of stone that make pictures in the sun.  [Highways and their mirage-producing effects]

"This is the Seventh Sign: You will hear of the sea turning black, and many living things dying because of it.  [Oil spills in the ocean]

"'This is the Eighth Sign: You will see many youth, who wear their hair long like my people, come and join the tribal nations, to learn their ways and wisdom.  ["Hippie Movement" of the 1960s]

"'And this is the Ninth and Last Sign: You will hear of a dwelling-place in the heavens, above the earth, that shall fall with a great crash. It will appear as a blue star. Very soon after this, the ceremonies of my people will cease.  [The Ninth Sign was the U.S. Space Station Skylab, which fell to Earth in 1979. According to Australian eyewitnesses, it appeared to be burning blue.]

"'These are the Signs that great destruction is coming.  The world shall rock to and fro. The white man will battle against other people in other lands -- with those who possessed the first light of wisdom [Israel?]. There will be many columns of smoke and fire such as White Feather has seen the white man make in the deserts not far from here. [Atomic Bomb]  Only those which come will cause disease and a great dying. Many of my people, understanding the prophecies, shall be safe. Those who stay and live in the places of my people also shall be safe. Then there will be much to rebuild. And soon -- very soon afterward -- Pahana will return. He shall bring with him the dawn of the Fifth World. He shall plant the seeds of his wisdom in their hearts. Even now the seeds are being planted. These shall smooth the way to the Emergence into the Fifth World.

"'But White Feather shall not see it. I am old and dying.  Perhaps you will see it.  In time, in time....' 

"The old Indian fell silent. They had arrived at his destination, and Reverend David Young stopped to let him out of the car. They never met again. Reverend Young died in 1976, so he did not live to see the further fulfillment of this remarkable prophecy.

I do not feel Skylab was the ninth sign. These 3 giant objects headed our way are bluish and one looks to be pushing an object like an asteroid. They are not due to arrive next month but soon. A lot of busy objects zipping about and we may seeing artificaial planet building. We do not know if they are friend or foe. My guess is we are like ants.{{:>/
It is not what you know.
It is what you do with what you know!!

I also don't believe Skylab was a sign either.  I don't believe the BP oil spill was a sign.  All the signs came in order, so BP couldn't have been a sign.  I think the bluish sign is yet to come.

Augonit, I just lost my post to you on this.... so this is the short version... I agree the blue object is yet to come, the Ninth Sign is yet to come.
RE the other signs: The first big commercial oil spill was clear back in 1967.
I wasn't sure of the dates so I just checked.
Anyway the height of the hippie movement was 1968 one year after the first major commercial oil spill
in 1967.  So it doesn't have to be BP.
So that is still in sequence, if a person looks at it that way. It is partly subjective interpretation.
Even though the press didn't make so much of the environmental impacts of the oil spills, prior to the 1990s, the impacts did happen. I remember one roommate in the late 1980s' he is the one info'd me about the EXON Valdez spill I was working so many hours I just didn't know... that was when the public really took notice...
The amount of oil that got spilled during war years and then in the 1967 spill, there had to have been lots of dead sea creatures and birds...
Just sayin.'
Well Augonit, we will be sorting this out for some time, meanwhile have a wonderful, peaceful safe New Year's eve,
Yowbarb

Excerpts:
"Where did the first major oil spill occur?
The first major oil spill occurred during World War II (1939-45), between January and June of 1942.
German U-boat attacks on tankers off the East Coast of the United States spilled 590,000 tons of oil.

The first major commercial oil spill occurred on March 18, 1967, when the tanker Torrey Canyon ran aground
on the Seven Stones Shoal off the coast of Cornwall, England. The tanker spilled 830,000 barrels (119,000 tons) of Kuwaiti oil into the sea."

Wisdomkeepers are the guardians of nature's mysteries within the Lakota ceremonies and their practices, the medicine that is ruled by them, the songs that infuse our senses and our spiritual body, and the forces they produce that are identical to nature and its motivating power. These oral and entirely spontaneous transmissions, given by the three holy men, Joe Flying By, Dave Chief, and Leroy Curley, are a rare treasure of the highest generosity, directed for the greatest good. Their stories are told with complete equanimity, vividly conveying, without rancor or judgement, how Western civilization lacks connection to the natural world. Because passing on elders' wisdom in the oral tradition to the next generation is almost impossible, given the fact that the three important elements of the Lakota culture--the land, the people, and the language--are all but gone, the film's producer/director has provided a great service to those who have an interest in, and wish to learn from, ancient Native American teachings that have rarely been exposed.
