“Among the few who possess inner strength to resist the mass unconsciousness will rise a new neo-indigenous people. Prophecies 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, Warriors and Shamans 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 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.” ~ Lee Standing Bear Moore (Manataka American Indian Council) —————————————————————————————————————————– This balance was done in coordination with a global community of rock balancers. The purpose was to hope for peace around the world. The precision and aesthetic of this balance makes me think of Phi, or the golden ratio. It is said that evolution constantly works itself toward this ratio in its tireless pursuit of perfection, which by nature may always be slightly out of reach. As far as the career of a balancer, It is common to notice an evolution of style from simple to complex. Every balance achieved becomes a necessary experience toward the next creation. In a way, the balancer’s consciousness and style also approaches, but never reaches, a kind of perfection. This balance is the most recent in my own pursuit of Phi. or Zen. For me, this balance was extremely difficult, not only because of the weights involved, but also the fine balance points. Only through my years of continuous practice can a balance like this be possible, relative to my own ability. It can never be quite perfect. But is is one step closer.
