Second Message of Manataka

(Excerpts from "Standing Bear Speaks")

By Lee Standing Bear Moore and Takatoka




What is it that can be said that you have not been told already?

Have you not been told to love one another?  Were you told to have no other gods except the Creator and honor your father and mother?   Were you told to keep Mother Earth and all things on her sacred?

Our ancient prophesies say a time will come when the blue sky and waters turn black and green things turn brown and die.  Animals and fish will disappear and birds will drop from the sky.  This devastation will come as a result of man's greed and disrespect for Mother Earth.

A new universe is now flying through the cosmos about to enter the earth's heavens.  We can barely see its enormous beak of the Aquarian bird as the stars and planets move to align themselves to the Awakening. The time is not far off when great cataclysmic changes will begin to occur on Earth.  Only a few will withstand these extreme alterations and there will be mass unconsciousness.  The polarity of man's universe will change. Great institutions, political divisions and economic systems will crumble, chaos will reign for a time.

Among the few who possess inner strength to resist the mass unconsciousness will rise a new neo-indigenous people.  Prophesies foretell of a people who will rise from earth's ashes like the thunderbird symbolizing rebirth.  They will bring balance and harmony back to Mother Earth. The first of these beings will come as teachers and storytellers to remind us of ancient truths of the star people and beyond.  They will be pathfinders leading the way to a new universe, a new reality.

Great leaders spiritual leaders and warriors of many nations will be born and they will cleanse the earth for rebirth.  Next will come the Planters sowing seeds of truth, justice and freedom.  The Storytellers, Warriors and Planters will live in the way of the Great Spirit and will teach ways to keep Mother of the Ground sacred forevermore.

They will be called Rainbow Warriors for they will gather the four sacred directions, all distinctly separate but forever connected in the Circle of Life. They will bring together the four races of man to live in peace.  The four sacred directions and the four races of man are symbolized by the magnificence and glory of the rainbow.  The neo-indigenous people of the Rainbow will give praise for the blessings of the Creator's loving grace.

Manataka is home of the Rainbow Woman who sleeps deep within the sacred mountain in the Place of Peace.  During the Awakening, she will emerge once more to give rebirth to this new tribe of people who will sing and dance praises to the Great Spirit - Creator under the rainbow.  Warriors of the Rainbow will be pathfinders of the principals the people will follow to achieve unity, understanding and love.

The Awakening will bring forth the Rainbow Woman who will show the Warriors the path to the Crystal Cave.  The messages of the ancients will be decoded using the seven keys and revealed to the Warriors by the Creator.  And each one will be gifted with powers to commune on many planes of existence.

The sacred Circle of Life turns slowly but inevitably back to the place where it began.  Thus, we say 'all things that were, will be again.   On earth this is true, but this statement is not entirely correct - depending on ones perspective.

As each age passes, it cannot be reclaimed.  We cannot go back in time.  If we were to look from above at the Circle of Life it would appear as a gigantic spiral.  Each age, or revolution of the Circle moves the next Circle to a plane in perfect concentric alignment with the last, but on higher level in the spiral.  Those souls who walk the path to higher awareness, consciousness and spirituality move with the spiral to the next plane. Those who do not, do not.

Now is the time we begin to prepare ourselves to become inheritors of Mother Earth, to become Warriors of the Rainbow - for the sake of our children's children and all humanity.  The road of the future is not red.  It is a rainbow leading to the Creators grace by way of prayer, good works, faith and keeping the ancient traditions.

We must first unshackle ourselves from materialism and organized religious dogma and personal prejudice.  There is nothing more important than becoming free in mind, body and soul from modern confusion in order to reach a higher plane of spirituality.  Our very survival depends on it.  To see the Light of the Rainbow we must quite our minds and feel inner peace and strength that flows as a river, one with nature and all creation.

To be chosen to walk the path to Light is not a decision made by some religious leader, a government agency or politician.  It is a personal choice made by a mind and heart made free of religious guilt and idols of modern materialism. It is a decision made between you and the Creator.

Now is the Time
Go to a quite place on the mountain, river, or in the forest - The church of the Great Spirit.  Spend three days fasting and praying.  Strip your mind and body of all worldly things.  Listen to nature, listen to your inner self. Purify yourself and talk to the Creator.  Give thanks for all the blessing of life and all creation.  Give yourself completely to this pilgrimage.  Maybe, just maybe the Creator will speak to you, show you a vision, and lead you closer to the Light.

The time will come soon when you will be needed.  Manataka, the Place of Peace will be one of the Great Gathering places of those who seek the Light of the Rainbow.  There, we will learn to walk the path and receive joyful the blessings of the Great Spirits and Creator.   We will feel joy and peace of a world without rancor and division.  One with each other, one with creation and one with the Creator. Ah Hoa!
