The World Vision Conference :
From The Prophecies
The Native Americans
the years, Thomas One Wolf's organization has stayed in touch with us, but we
had not had the opportunity to meet up again until just a couple months ago,
at the global conference of the United Religions Initiative at Stanford University
in Palo Alto, California. Surprisingly, as soon as we walked in, we saw Thomas
One Wolf and his wife Sherri.
It was a joyous
reunion and we were all very surprised to see each other. Thomas and Sherri
told us of their work with the United Religions Initiative (URI). They had just
been designated as the leaders of the Southwest regional division of the URI,
which underwent an official charter to become a Non Governmental Organization
(NGO) of the United Nations. It has become a world-wide organization similar
to the United Nations, but made up of the world religions. The URI was formed
on the 50th anniversary of the signing of the United Nations charter and now
has regional offices around the world. The involvement of the Native Americans
in this organization was an important fulfilment of an Indian prophecy as we
would later learn.
Thomas and Sherri
told us that he and his 98 year old grandfather were going to hold a "World
Vision Conference" in New Mexico which would bring the elders from some
of the largest tribes together with many religious leaders from around the world.
They said they had just spoken to Master recently and personally invited Her
to speak. Of course, Master's arrangement brought us all together with perfect
timing. The World Vision Conference, we believe, was Master's way of helping
plant seeds for blessings to be spread to the Native Americans.
A couple of days
following the United Religions Conference, Master sent special instructions
to organize a group of people to attend the World Vision Conference in Albuquerque,
New Mexico. Not certain that Her schedule would permit Her to speak at the event,
She at least wanted to make sure that She had representatives who would bring
Her respect, love and sincere compassion to the Native American people. She
said that She felt they had endured a lot of hardship over the years and wanted
to bring them some comfort. Disciples and Western contact people came from all
corners of the US - California, New York, Georgia, Arizona, Alabama, Colorado,
Texas and Missouri, representing Master at this moving event.
Thomas had told
us that one of the purposes of the conference was to unite elders of the largest
Indian tribes and representatives of many spiritual paths so that he could share
a vision he was given 14 years ago. Many of the native tribes have been told
in their inner visions and dreams that they should share their prophecies and
visions with all the races of humankind. There is a striking similarity between
many of the native prophecies and Master's teachings. They speak of how we have
forgotten to respect our Earth Mother (Mother Nature) and because we have not
honored the earth, the resulting retribution is severe weather, many floods
and fires and a dramatic shortage in the food and water supply.
They have been
told that we must come together not as the Native race of the red people, but
as one human race - white, black, yellow and red - under one Great Spirit (God)
in communion with the earth (Mother Nature). We have forgotten our native ways
and forsaken them in the name of progress and because of it, the earth is now
toxic and polluted and it must cleanse itself, with or without humankind. If
all the races of humankind come back together in the name of honoring each other
and Mother Earth, the world will unite in a new era of peace. If we somehow
forget this mission, many thousands of people will suffer and the human race
may even disappear.
As disciples of
Master, we understood this message very clearly as many of us have been working
in disaster relief for many years. One of the tribal elders said that the world
would begin to rapidly change after their message was sent across the waters.
There, it would touch the ears of someone who speaks the same Truth, from the
One Heart and the One religion. We were convinced he was speaking of Master.
the conference, Thomas invited us to come to a special prayer ceremony called
a Sweat at his land north of Albuquerque. He owns 4,000 acres of land near Taos,
New Mexico. This is a special region of southwestern United States known for
its spiritual atmosphere. In ancient legends it is said to be the site of where
the first humans dwelled. It is in what is known as the Four Corners region,
which is the holy land of many Native American tribes. Different tribes perform
these ceremonies in different ways, but in Thomas' tribal tradition, people
enter into a dome-shaped tent called an Inipi and sit in a circle around a pit
in which heated stones are placed. The tribal spiritual leader then sprinkles
herbs and pours water over the stones, and around the circle each person speaks
their prayers and hopes for the world. It gets very hot inside (which is why
it is called a "sweat"), but it is a symbolic purification ritual
to cleanse the body and mind of toxins.
When Thomas and
Sherri met Master many years ago, he explained the sacred purpose of the Inipi
and predicted that one day we would visit his land to sit in spiritual ceremony.
This day happened when our disciples came together in prayer in the Inipi lodge
with Thomas. It was a very moving moment as each person went around the circle
and prayed for the world, for the spiritual progress of humankind and for a
return to our highest nature.
It was a wonderful
time for all disciples to come together as a family and share our love and respect
with the tribal elders in this way. It really felt like meeting up with long
lost brothers and sisters.

Conference.We returned to
Albuquerque the next day and prepared for the World Vision Conference. The Conference
itself was a full day of spiritual discourse from many different traditions.
There were Christian speakers, a Kundalini Yoga Master, a Lama of Tibetan Buddhism,
a spiritual author and teacher, and elders from several native tribes: the Cree,
the Navajo, the Hopi, the Taos Pueblo people, the Tewa, and the Saquamish. Even
though Master did not come, Her presence was very much there and the presence
of our disciples was very much appreciated in the event. Several other gurus
and teachers could also not attend and instead sent a message to be read on
their behalf. Our disciples stood up as a group in a semi-circle at the front
of the room holding hands while one disciple shared the message Master had asked
us to give:
She had asked that we come on Her behalf to give Her deep
respect and love to the Native American people and to bring a message of Hope
for the future that we may heal the wounds of the past and keep an eye toward
a brighter future for all of us together.
We said that Master
had taught us to not only pray and speak our philosophy and truth, but to also
act upon it by effecting positive change in the world around us. In this spirit
of brotherhood, we had come from around the nation to share our dreams for a
better tomorrow. We ended by having one of the disciples reading the following
quote by Master of Her dream for the future.
have a dream. I dream that the whole world becomes peaceful, that everyone becomes
God. I dream that all the killing will stop, that all the children will walk
in peace and harmony. I dream that all
the nations will shake hands, protect each other, and help each other. I dream
that our beautiful planet will not be destroyed by some crazy atom bomb; a planet
that has taken billions, trillions of years to create in beauty and love. Yes,
that is my dream.

Conference.Many people were
very touched and came up to us after the event wanting to know more about Master
and Her teachings.
It was a very
loving event and we each were deeply affected. It was a very special time to
bring together our Western disciples in a place where we could actually spend
some time getting to know one another. We played musical cars on the way up
and returning from Thomas' land which gave us time to laugh and share our stories
and spiritual struggles. We had large group meals together, group meditation
morning and evening, and small interludes where we could sit and be quiet with
each other. And we know Master was there with us, even though Her physical body
was not there. One sister verified this by a dream she had the first morning
she was there. In her dream while she was meditating with other initiates who
came to this conference, Master came embraced them, and thanked them for coming
there, filling them with light and blessings.
Thank You, Master,
for this wonderful opportunity to reach out to our brothers and sisters in need.
The Native people are afraid, and we would like to have more ways to relieve
their suffering, if possible. They are having a lot of problems growing their
crops this year and they may be facing wide-scale hunger on the reservations.
We are sure that it was no accident that we were sent at the time Master arranged.
With Master's blessings, I'm sure our paths will cross again.
