Chief Seattle’s Prophecy for America: The End of Living and the Beginning of Survival

by Richard Cassaro, RichardCassaro.com Chief Seattle (1780 – 1866) was a prominent native American chief who pursued a path of peace with colonial white settlers in what is now the state of Washington. During treaty negotiations in 1852, he gave a famous speech in response to an offer by the U.S. Government to buy two million acres of Indian lands. Chief Seattle was in perfect touch not only with his inner divinity but also  with his outer animal nature, unlike many of us today.  Seattle asked: “How can you buy or sell the sky? The land? The idea is strange to us. What will happen when the buffalo are all slaughtered? What will happen when the secret corners of the forest are heavy with the scent of many men and the view of the ripe hills is blotted by talking wires?” His answer: “The end of living and the […] Read More

7 Signs of a Sacred Clown: Heyoka Wisdom & The Healing Trickster Shaman

  I felt these articles were thought provoking and familial with the many disinfonauts who, from what I can tell, seek to enact change and incite awareness through irony and humor. This is for those of us who’d rather die from laughing than live without ever cracking up. The Path of the Sacred Clown: Where Trickster and Shaman Converge by Gary Z McGee “The main function of a sacred clown is to deflate the ego of power by reminding those in power of their own fallibility, while also reminding those who are not in power that power has the potential to corrupt if not balanced with other forces, namely with humor. But sacred clowns don’t out-rightly derive things. They’re not comedians, per se, though they can be. They are more like tricksters, poking holes in things that people take too seriously. Through acts of satire and showy displays of blasphemy, sacred […] Read More

Tablet VI: The Key of Magic Hark ye, O man, to the wisdom of magic. Hark to the knowledge of powers forgotten. Long, long ago in the days of the first man, warfare began between darkness and light. Men, then as now, were filled with both darkness and light; and while in some darkness held sway, in others lights filled the soul. Aye, age old is this warfare, the eternal struggle between darkness and light. Fiercely is it fought all through the ages, using strange powers hidden to man. Adepts have there been filled with the blackness, struggling always against the light; but others there are who, filled with brightness, have ever conquered the darkness of night.

Long time ago, I in my childhood, lay ‘neath the stars on long-buried ATLANTIS, dreaming of mysteries far above men. Then in my heart grew there a great longing to conquer the pathway that led to the stars. Year after year, I sought after wisdom, seeking new knowledge, following the way, until at last my SOUL, in great travail, broke from its bondage and bounded away. Free was I from the bondage of earth-men. Free from the body, I flashed through […] Read More

Cause thou not fear for fear is a bondage, a fetter that binds the darkness to men. Follow thine heart during […] Read More

The Dual Aspect of Wisdom

No doubt but ye are the people and wisdom shall die with you. JOB xii. 2. But wisdom is justified of her children. MATTHEW xi. 19. It is the privilege – as also occasionally the curse – of editors to receive numerous letters of advice, and the conductors of Lucifer have not escaped the common lot. Reared in the aphorisms of the ages they are aware that “he who can take advice is superior to him who gives it,” and are therefore ready to accept with gratitude any sound and practical suggestions offered by friends; but the last letter received does not fulfill the condition. It is not even his own wisdom, but that of the age we live in, which is asserted by our adviser, who thus seriously risks his reputation for keen observationby such acts of devotion on the altar of modern pretensions. It is in defense […] Read More
