The American Indian, once a proud and honorable culture has succumbed to
being dependent on government for their very existence. At one time they
as a whole were very independent and had a firm relationship with their
Supreme Being or Their God.
And as such were very close and dependent on nature and the whims of the
weather. They were so in tune they knew of approaching storms, hard
times and stampeding buffalo. They often foretold of coming events, not
only for their own personal tribes, but for mankind and the earth as
This is not to say they were perfect, they knew little of fertilization and
thus did farm out the land and when it became too poor to raise crops,
they would move on to more fertile ground thereby enabling the land
replenish itself over time.
The American Indian never developed any technology and thus didn’t advance
their civilization one iota over ten thousand years, they were still
living much the same in Columbus’s time as they were thousands of years
ago. This one fact eventually lead to their downfall, being big on
spirituality and short on technology can only lead to disaster.
Today we have advanced to having the most technological advanced society the
modern world has ever known. We have new innovations coming at us daily,
often times so rapidly it is hard to keep up. In the process we are
also losing our culture, spirituality has become non-existent, and many
times people who are so inclined are ridiculed into submission, so they
Society, in a perfect world advances both in technology and spirituality, or
their relationship to a divine source. As has been exemplified in the
previous paragraphs, this is not always the case. It seems civilization
either concentrate on one or the other and not both. In most societies
in the past, the focus has been on spirituality. The only two exceptions
I might mention would be Atlantis and Ancient Egypt where much focus
was placed on both areas, in particular Atlantis.
We have reached a point in time in the evolution of man where we need to
focus on both, we have accomplished much in the scientific world over
the last several generations, now it is time to bring our spiritual
world up to par with our world of technology.
The is much evidence in the world to make this seem evident, with all the
unrest and civil disobedience it is way past time to remember what is
important in life and to arrange our priorities to reflect the time worn
values that are the basis of an enduring society.
