I used the above graphic rather than John’s gravatar because, like his mentality, this image reminds me of Eruch Jessawalla (Eruch was to Meher Baba what Peter was to Christ). Like Eruch, his outlook is simple and realistic, with a refined sense of values and a pretty subdued voice for someone that strong. But also like Eruch, he’s himself; he’s totally individuated, and although not pushy about it, you can feel the personal authority of someone who is used to being who he is.

From his I can show you God.
...I open up my power bag. I take out some tied-up sage. I light the sage. I walk in circles and thank the spirits for the good day. I request forgiveness for coming to their ancient place of prayers. I pray for my friend to find peace. I go to my friend. I bring her up. I take her to the edge of the cliff. She is amazed. Two hawks are flying near. She can see forever. Tears appear in her eyes. She asked. “Are we trick into believing in the wrong things? Do we blind ourselves from the real beauty. Do we waste time and life on useless things?” I brought her close and told her. Nature is a fine example. The hawk need little. Takes what they need. Don’t kill for useless reason and love the free sky and open land. Would be nice if man would be kinder? I told you I would show you God. God is in you. In the deeds you do and life you live. Look at this place. It was create by a artist. God gave us free-will and chance.”
This is what life in Meher Baba’s New Humanity will be like. We’re living in abundance, but it’s an abundance of valueless things, activities, attachments, obsessions, and systems, all driven by increasing unreal motivation. One way or another, it will all come crumbling down, as the Native American Medicine Elders have foretold, as well as Meher Baba. But we don’t have to wait for that general cataclysm. Every moment is a time when we can just put down all that old-world stupidity, complication, and suffering.
(I have been lucky. Many kind Native American took me under their wing and taught me how to find peace.)
At the Mall I went to the so-call Native American store. A Middle East man tried to sell me a China’s made items. I touched a Medicine Wheel. I told the man. “A proper Medicine Wheel has the power of the four winds.” I touched a Dream Catcher. “A real one would protect your spirit and keep bad dreams away.” He grins at me. He didn’t understand a word that I spoke. He told me. “Does the same things.” I leave the store with nothing. Sitting with my Apache Friend outside the gate of Fort Hood, Texas. I sat and listen to him. His skin harden from the Texas sun. I came and sat with him every Saturday for many months. He had a story for every item he sold. I brought him food and water. His stories were passed on to him by family and elders. He gave me a Medicine Wheel. He rose up and made a circle with his hands. He told me. “All people are part of the circle of life.” “We all have a purpose.” With sadness in his voice. “Us Apache and Native Americans were responsible to protect Nature. We did a poor job.” “The white people were responsible for the fire. They shared their gift and now fire is held in every corner of the planet. Eyes looking at the ground. Then he raise his eyes and look to the sky. The fire was taught(Atomic and nuclear) too well.” “The black people held the strength, wisdom and honor. The wisdom of the black people lost direction. We need their strength before we kill off all that is good.” “The yellow people have courage, leadership and clarity. The gentle and calm souls will be necessary for this world to seek peace.” “The medicine wheel is a compass to all life. We must know all four directions.” ...
The Chinese bubble economy will be the first to go. When all you know is how to make money, every physical thing you make is just a voodoo doll crying for more and more money. At some point, everybody just starts burning Chinese voodoo dolls.
