Leaders create culture
Leaders are at the centre of an ever-expanding web of influence, they create the culture of an organisation or community. In traditional Aboriginal communities, people were trained to see beyond everyday reality and Elders needed to see 7 generations back in time and 7 generation forward in time. Their minds were developed well beyond what we today think is possible.
There are four types of leaders. The natural leader is indistinguishable from the will of those who selected him/her. The next best leader enjoys the love and praise of the people. The poor leader rules through coercion and fear. And the worst leader is a tyrant despised by the multitudes who are the victims of his/her power. Tao te thing

View StoryCreating Reality
In a Native American parable, the Creator gathers all the animals and says: “I want to hide something from humans until they are ready for it - the realization that they create their own reality - ”
“Give it to me. I'll fly it to the moon,” says the eagle.
“No, one day soon they will go there and find it.”
“How about the bottom of the ocean?” asks the salmon.
“No, they will find it there too.”
“I will bury it in the great plains,” says the buffalo.
“They will soon dig and find it there.”
“Put it inside them,” says the wise grandmother mole.
“Done,” says the Creator. “It is the last place they will look.”

Take a moment now and forget what you have read.
Take a moment now and forget what you have said,
Breathe in the atmosphere and allow your mind to be still
Breathe in the space in between this moment and that moment,
Forget all that you think you know
Forget all that you have been told
And remember who you are and why you are here,
Remember that you are here and that within you is all that you need,
You are everything and nothing, like the universe
You are part of me and we breathe as one

Connect with the needs of your own mind, body and soul
Sense your love and concern for your Self and others
Sense the natural laws of the universe

View StoryThe Eleventh Hour
"We have been telling the people that this is the Eleventh Hour.
Now you must go back and tell the people that this is the Hour.
And there are things to be considered. Where are you living? What are you
doing? What are your relationships? Are you in the right relation?
Where is your water? Know your garden.
It is time to speak your truth. Create your community.
Be good to each other. And do not look outside yourself for the leader.
This could be a good time! There is a river flowing now very fast.
It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid.
They will try to hold onto the shore.
They will feel they are being torn apart and they will suffer greatly.
Know the river has its destination.
The elders say we must let go of the shore, and push off and into the river,
Keep our eyes open, and our head above the water.
See who is in there with you and Celebrate.
At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally. Least of all ourselves.
For the moment that we do, Our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt.
The time of the lone wolf is over, Gather yourselves!
Banish the word struggle from your attitude and your vocabulary.
All that you do now must be done in a sacred manner And in celebration.
We are the one's we've been waiting for."
The Elders, Hopi Nation, Oraibi Arizona
View StoryThe Five Types of Love
According to Ralph Alan Dale, there are five types of love. The first three types of love violate the laws of nature and are destructive to our society. Which type of love are your relationships based on?
The first type of love is possessive love. This is like owning an object! Success is defined by how many, how rare or how beautiful the object is that you possess. This type of love can be described as a selfish and manipulative act. This type of love can lead to domestic violence or family abuse.
The second type of love is co-dependent love. This type of love is based on the belief that you can not exist without the other (drug or alcohol can be the other) or the union of two people with one identity. Co-dependent love prevents self growth and independence. In some circles, this is believed to be ideal love.
The third type of love is romantic love and is based on a belief that there exists only one perfect mate for you and this perfect mate will complete your life, your relationship has no conflicts and is easy, they will fill your deficiencies and you don't need to grow as a person. The other person can never live up to these unrealistic expectations and will let you down. A perfect mate is an illusion and people go from one relationship to another in search of their perfect mate. People often feel unfulfilled and that they are missing out. This highly sought after, but completely unfulfilling type of love is what Hollywood movies sell us on.
The fourth type of love is infinite love and this is based on the belief that love is an energy that flows between people, nature and life. Love is freely given and received, not only to and from other people but to rocks, birds, art, and nature. The person that feels infinite love has shed their armour and masks and is truly free. To feel love and compassion for all people all of the time is difficult, but this is what is required of infinite love. However, in our society this type of love is judged as 'do gooders', 'tree huggers' 'crossing professional boundaries' and often misinterpreted from a framework of the other types of love. Occasionally, this can be used as a mask for the other types of love. Many abusers will talk the talk of infinite love only their actions may be showing romantic love.
The fifth type of love is becoming love and this is based on the belief we are one of one and are pure energy. This type of love currently cannot be experienced only dreamt about! We need a critical mass of people experiencing and living infinite love to make this a reality. Imagine a world where the majority of people do not need to sacrifice their humanity to be accepted.
