-----Acknowledgement of The Message of Peace Symbolized by the Rainbow Uprising of Consciousness Peace Pole
We read these words to understand and acknowledge The Message of Peace Symbolized by the Rainbow Uprising of Consciousness Campaign Peace Pole as depicted by the graphic at this link:
The Rainbow Uprising of Consciousness Campaign was initiated in Santa Barbara in 1990 inspired by the head of the Palestinian Center for Nonviolence in Jerusalem who explained that while the Arabic word Intifada is commonly translated to English as “uprising”, that in fact it has a deeper spiritual meaning in the Islamic culture which is a “self purification spiritual practice to uprise human consciousness to a higher level from which the solutions to problems can be seen”.
The purpose of the Rainbow Uprising Peace Pole Project is to spread this message which is common to many cultures by installing many such peace poles, analogous to the colors of the rainbow blending together in its awesome beauty that is shared equally by everyone as one human family, all our relations.
The top symbol in the Rainbow Uprising Peace Pole graphic, the one in the position of the Sun, is the calligraphy of the Na-Mu-Myo-Ho-Ren-Ge-Kyo which depicts The Message of Peace that was accepted 2200 years ago in India, ending many years of violent and bloody warfare, by King Ashoka who thereafter built many peace poles with inscriptions memorializing The Message of Peace which led to a period of over 500 years with no war or crime or violence throughout the entire Indian Subcontinent.
The second symbol on the Rainbow Uprising of Consciousness Peace Pole graphic, the central one, is the symbol of The Great Law of Peace which was delivered to the Iroquois people about 1000 years ago along with the teaching of the Tree of Peace, by the one they call The Peacemaker, thus ending centuries of bitter warfare between the five warring tribes and creating the Iroquois Confederacy after which the US system of self-government is largely patterned. The worst of the original five tribes, that were united under the Tree of Peace by The Great Law of Peace as the Iroquois Confederacy, was the Mohawk tribe because they were the most ferocious and were cannibals. Yet the Mohawk were the first to accept the teaching of The Great Law of Peace from him and then helped The Peacemaker to bring it to the other tribes and successfully convert them all to the ways of peace. This is an important precedent for our times because those who are the worst are causing the problems in today’s world with their power to destroy, and yet when we convince them to accept The Message of Peace we must then forgive them and bring them also into the Circle of Peace using the same Truth, Amnesty, and Reconciliation process by which Nelson Mandela overcame Apartheid.
According to the traditional Hopi interpreter Thomas Banyacya, speaking at the Rainbow Uprising Campaign initiation events in January 1990 in Santa Barbara with Mohawk Chief Jake Swamp, it is the Iroquois People's spiritual responsibility to unite all of the nations of the world in peace under The Great Law of Peace as they did long ago with over 100 native nations living in peace and harmony and prosperity in the eastern United States area before the Europeans came.
The third symbol, at the base, the foundation, is the symbol drawn by Thomas Banyacya that appears as the seal at the bottom of his Hopi Declaration of Peace:
---------Message of Peace, continued----
THE HOPI DECLARATION OF PEACE
It is in the Power of the True Hopi People to unify the minds and spirits of all true peace seeking peoples of the earth...
"Hopi" means "Peaceful People"... and the truest and greatest power is the strength of Peace...because Peace is the Will Of The Great Spirit...
But do not think that just because the True Hopi People have been told by the Great Spirit never to take up arms... that the True Hopi People will not fight... even die for what we know to be the right way of Life.
The True Hopi People Know how to fight without killing or hurting...
The True Hopi People Know how to fight with Truth and Positive Force In The Light Of The Great Spirit...
The True Hopi People Know how to Educate by clear thoughts... good pictures... and by carefully chosen words...
The True Hopi People Know how to show to all the world's Children the True Way of Life by setting an example... by working and communicating in a way that reaches the minds and hearts of all people who are truly seeking the methods of a simple and spiritual Life which is the only Life that will survive...
THE TRUE HOPI PEOPLE PRESERVE THE SACRED KNOWLEDGE ABOUT THE WAY OF THE EARTH BECAUSE THE TRUE HOPI PEOPLE KNOW THAT THE EARTH IS A LIVING... GROWING PERSON... AND ALL THINGS ON IT ARE HER CHILDREN...
The True Hopi People Know how to show the Right Way of Life to all the world's people who have ears to listen... who have eyes to see... and who have hearts to understand these things...
