BLANKET OF HOPE
is the Blanket of Hope. Prophecy is woven in its threads. It is
an ancient design that speaks of a time when the world is in despair
and famine because TRUTH has not been spoken. It speaks of a time
of great suffering and injustice because our world is out of balance.
civilizations have been like a great bird. As in all things created,
there must be a balance so the bird has two wings. One wing is strong.
The other has been kept tightly bound. In this condition, it will
flap around knocking things over, going in circles, creating chaos,
but will never get off the ground. The strong wing is masculine
consciousness, enforcing its vision and will. It has been writing
history and making all the decisions that have affected us and will
continue to affect us for a long time.
other wing is feminine consciousness. It has not been allowed equal
place and the seats of power. This treacherous and sorry imbalance
has brought about our histories of war, subjugation, mighty armies
and poor schools. Our societies are rushing headlong into complete
annihilation because only the masculine voice is being heard. If
we are to survive, women everywhere and the Sacred Feminine that
is in every man must be freed and allowed to step forward to affect
the general welfare of the Earth’s populations.
blanket shows three corn maidens standing and holding arrows of
truth. If we are to survive, they must choose to act by stepping
forward now, and if those arrows find their mark, the blanket shows
the corn growing. This corn growing promises abundance for all people
of the Earth. We will have abundance because finally there will
be peace. There will only be peace because finally there is justice.
There will finally be justice only because TRUTH has been spoken.
We will survive only because of the return of this balance –
the MASCULINE and the FEMININE side by side as equal strengths.
Our societies, our priorities – have been masculinized for
too long. We are truly out of balance. The men cannot do it by themselves.
Feminine TRUTH must step forward now.
There is a story of wisdom that goes with the border. It was explained
to me by a Maori Elder (New Zealand, 1990)
goes like this: The Border of the Blanket is the story of our lives,
our purpose, and the roadmap or book of instructions that, in fact,
is clearly in the laws/sacred ways of nature. Those are the spirals
that emanate from the Earthline (dark red/black borderline) around
the blanket. Then notice the stairway that is supported by the spiral.
This she called the " staircase to heaven." She said that
this represents the obstacles in our lives. We must change our attitude
about the obstacles in our path and understand that the obstacle
is the path. As each obstacle presents itself, we are to say THANK
YOU and take another step, and another, and another until it’s
done. It is then we will have our completion and our peace.
is said by the Elders that, "It is not the events in our lives
which cause the pain, it is our resistance."
is my prayer and my deepest hope that the knowledge of the existence
of this blanket and its meaning will inspire and give us a new place
to stand as we transform this terrible rush to vengeance and inevitable
remain as always, your friend and partner in a better world.
