Mission Statement:

• We are committed to living in communion, free of cultural imperatives,
• We Warriors of the Rainbow who honour Great Spirit’s sacred purpose,
• It is here, in the embrace of our Divine Mother, we gather the Children,
• So to shelter them from an intrusive, exhausted and terminal 4th world,
• That they may be liberated from its dread destiny to the new dimension.
Aho!

Community Description:

We are of one mind – it is time to gather. We came from there …but is it really where we came from? Are we now sufficiently chastened by the ‘paradigm’…?

the new world is indeed birthing ….even as the old one is dying So much harm has been done; The whole of the natural world is aggrieved. So now we must accept the burden of guilt we share. But let us be fully aware …we could not have found our way …were not the beauty of the whole world preserved in us. Thus do we also experience a great gratitude…

Let us share what we are here…. How could we not acknowledge Native American spirit-vision for the simple Truth it resonates! Now one must listen… the conscious are already free…

“…The time of the lone wolf is over – gather yourselves” … said Hopi Chief Martin just a while back. It was heard by many …but not seen. His advice inspires and guides us. Let us seek CommUnion.

We have come – in an ultimate challenge to ourselves, finally – to honor Great Spirit. In a last act of irony we are now leaving the world to those who saw in it only their inheritance. For us, it had lost its way…

Even in its death-throes, the paradigm is transfixed with self-absorption. Its lunacy is overwhelming…

East of Eden is already a step outside of that paradigm …a point of departure into the the new [fifth-] dimension. It follows the path of Love. The world we leave holds little for us …we shall preserve some music, art, writing …the expressions of our highest possibility

…even as the whole of mankind stumbles through its ultimate delusion, a blind and hapless remnant of collective failure… we must resist and make the future.

It had become clear that none of us, individually, could overcome the collective karma. Remember Yeshua’s final plea! The dilemma we face has never been as critical as now – this last ‘go-round’ has turned into total lunacy…!

The Children of the Earth are the only ones who will know the way out of here.

* * *

East of Eden supports no orthodoxy or doctrine, has no system of belief …except for the Divinity of the Creator and the yearning of the Universe for Communion within it. We already live on the farthest-out edge of the ‘paradime’, our focus now beyond the horizon. We hold the future in a beloved family circle, our Rainbow Family …and look to our Children to initiate the Sacred Vision. They are our Hope.

We know that those who are ready for this message …will hear it loud and clear.

For clarity – so to be sure – check out our filial Community www,edenhope.org Perhaps what you seek will be rewarded there.

* * *

We are fully aware of the emergent crisis upon us. It is already so dramatic …soon it will become monumental by any historic standard. So we leave the world to its devices’ …Karma is both inevitable and absolute. Let us hasten upon the journey we Dreamers must take. The Fifth World awaits us… It is time to separate from the old paradigm …to immerse ourselves in transcendence, weaving our cloth …as the new dawn manifests…

We stand at the very edge of infinity …yet our roots are in yesterday’s Child, just as its future is in the world to which it will lead …we are in a Sacred Space… Do you recognize yourself there?

Even though we had forgotten, we knew that one day we would remember again …and so we have!

“When the earth is ravaged and the animals are dying,
a new tribe of people shall come unto the earth from many colors, classes, creeds,
and who by their actions and deeds shall make the earth green again.
They will be known as Warriors of the Rainbow”

Aho!
