Among the First Nations Cree tribe was an Elder woman, named 'Eyes of Fire', who prophesied that because of White Man's greed, the fish in the streams would die, birds would fall to the ground, water would turn black, the trees would also die and human existance would be threatenned.
Then a tribe of people would come to restore the ancient customs, legends, stories and ceremonies of the land. This tribe would usher a new awakening of harmony between the people of the four corners of the earth and the Creator of the land. The would teach how to restore our dying planet by weaving human identity back into our natural environment.
They will cause a return of the beauty of earth to its original paradise. They will call this tribe of people from every race and nation, the Rainbow Warriors.
I spoke with my brother about this pledge and we discussed how solar energy can help reduce carbon emissions, even on the furnaces that warm our houses. Just then a wood-pecker began to wrap on the chimney pipe with a noise that filled the whole house.
Please share this pledge with everyone you know and you will begin to hear creation speak and teach you the way of the Rainbow Warrior....
The Pledge of the Rainbow Warrior
I(We) solemnly pledge as a Rainbow Warrior to become a motivating force led by Indigenous elders who offer a safe passage-rite to weave human identity into the environment of Mother Earth.
As a Rainbow Warrior, I pledge to be motivated to the full extent of the human will, motivated to give up any kind of illicit luxury, motivated to postpone any licit good, and even motivated to die for the primary purpose of transferring the natural earth as an inheritance to the children of future generations.
As a Rainbow Warrior, I pledge to become learned in the knowledge and the stories of the land as its science and mysteries instruct humanity and all living systems into an equitable harmony.
As a Rainbow Warrior, I pledge to choose no living enemies, but to embrace the singular conflict with my inner-self for the purpose of curbing my human activities toward this ecological harmony within the Natural Law.
As a Rainbow Warrior, I pledge to become part of a Spiritual Force commissioned by the Creator and able to inspire and heal others, especially those most broken by the world-view of exploitation, with the understanding that no wounded warriors, no matter how hopeless their circumstances, are to be left behind.
As a Rainbow Warrior, I pledge to be inspired by the visions and dreams of the Indigenous Elders, from every culture of life, especially those cultures maintaining Indigenous values, and I pledge to become familiar with their dreams and prophecies and to become aware of the signs of the times.
As a Rainbow Warrior, I (We) pledge to answer this desperate call at this cross-roads of living history to join in the migration by pulling for Turtle Island, taking only what is necessary to sustain harmony with Mother Earth and leaving behind all things that might harm her capacity to nourish all living things.
As my passage-rite, as a Rainbow Warrior, I solemnly pledge to wear this banner on my heart, (from a Polynesian power oar) representing the Guardian of Ocean Migrations (the Higher Power, our Creator) to remind me to stand for my principles as a guardian and true child of Mother Earth, knowing the only way to ecological harmony is to weave human identity back into the natural environment.
Please share this pledge, feel free to improve upon it and find away to promote it by all licit means in order to restore the earth.
