Mission Statement:

Transcending Collective Karma… The Only Way Out

• We were meant to live in Communion, free of all culture and prejudice,
• We are Warriors of the Rainbow; honouring Great Spirit’s sacred purpose,
• Here, in the embrace of Divine Mother, we tarry only to gather the Children,
• So as to shelter them from the intrusive, exhausted and terminal 4th world,
• That they may be liberated from its dread destiny into a new dimension.

Aho!

Community Description:

We are of one mind – it is time to gather. That is the final word. We come from here, yes …but is it really where we are from? Have we learned what we came here for? Perhaps we are not sufficiently chastened…

A new world is indeed birthing ….even as an old one is dying So much harm has been done to it – the whole of the natural world is aggrieved. So now we must accept the guilt and resolve it. But being fully aware …let us acknowledge we could not have found our way …were it not the beauty preserved in us. Thus do we also experience gratitude…

In sharing what we are here…. how could we not acknowledge Native American spirit-vision for the simple Truth it bequeathed us!

Let us listen… [the conscious are already free…]

“…The time of the lone wolf is over – gather yourselves” … said Hopi Chief Martin some years ago. It may have been heard by many …but seen by few. Yet it is this advice that inspires and guides us to seek CommUnion …as that is also what he meant.

We have come – in an ultimate challenge to ourselves – to finally honor Great Spirit. And in a last act of irony …leave the world to those who see only their own inheritance in it. It had lost us along the way…

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

East of Eden is a significant step outside of the paradigm …a point of departure into another dimension. It follows only a path of Love. In the world we leave there is little else left for us …perhaps some music, art, writing …the old ways we learned to express our highest possibilities.

…even as mankind stumbles now through his ultimate delusion, a blind and hapless collective failure… we resist and dream the future. Listen…

We finally got it: none of us could overcome the burden of collective karma. Certainly not individually – do you remember Yeshua’s final plea! The dilemma we faced has never been as critical as it is now – this last ‘go-round’ has turned into total lunacy…!

The Children of the Earth are the only ones capable of finding their way out of here.

* * *

East of Eden supports no orthodoxy, has no doctrine; we insist upon no system of belief. Yet do we honour the Universe Great Spirit so Loves …and thus pursue Communion with it. We already live in the far-out edge of the ‘paradime’ …and there hold the future in a beloved circle – this is our Rainbow Family …where we look to the Children to initiate the Vision. They were always the future we Dreamed.

For those who see, this will resonate with them…

As a consideration, however, do check out our filial Community at www,edenhope.org Perhaps what you sought may well be there…

* * *

We are fully aware of the emergent crisis surrounding us. It is already dramatic …soon to become monumental, unfathomed by previous experience. So we leave the world [now] to its devices’ …Karma is absolute and inevitable. Let us hasten upon the path Dreamers must take – the Fifth World awaits us… It is close to the time to separate from the paradigm …to immerse in transcendence, weaving our cloth …as a new dawn manifests…

We who stand at the very edge of infinity …know our roots are in yesterday’s Child, just as our future is in the world to which that child will lead …we are in a Sacred Space… Do you remember it?

Even though it had been forgotten, we knew one day it would be remembered again …and so it is!

“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!
