According to a process unfolding in Nature, known to some as “The Sacred Path or Pattern of Migration,” our Earth has been progressively evolving life, stage-by-stage, from our Solar System’s most outlying orbit to where we are now, one step from the loftiest place of our system – the Morning Star-Fifth World. Our Earth has long been carrying us as we have evolved from our earliest stages of life, to our present Homo sapien forms. But this is not our final form, which is received at the end of the Earth’s journey through our solar system toward the sun.
The book, Earth Mother Our Womb of Life, tells the story of the Sacred Path of Migration – the Hopi explanation for how our Earth Mother creates and develops life. It’s a wonderful and inspiring description for two reasons.
First it explains evolution as a natural process – a progressive system of development. This is not just a philosophical idea, but a step-by-step instruction as to how it works, like explaining how the gears on a clock work.
Which leads me to the second reason why the story is so amazing: it offers hope for our future – scientific, rational hope!
At its heart, its a very simple 4 step procedure (though the book does not divide it into 4 steps) but it’s simplicity belies its vast explanatory powers – 4 steps to explain the creation and development of our Solar System and all life in it!
As the book says:
Perhaps the greatest difference between native religions and others, is this: we believe in God and evolution. We believe God’s greatest work is through evolution. God is the Divine Artist, evolution is the divine art; we are His clay; death is His kiln.
Creation and Evolution are best seen as one process – one wonderful, measurable and reliable system in Nature – like a caterpillar becoming a butterfly.
Everything I’m going to write is known in science and I’ll give you the links. All of the pieces of the puzzle are there – this explanation puts them together.
I had intended to write the 4 steps in one post. After all they are very simple. The difficulty is not the 4 steps themselves, but overcoming our current beliefs. As the book says:
After being raised within a particular worldview, it is difficult to step out of it, seeing the world in an entirely new light; one in which the Earth is a great living being filled with the life, consciousness, and power of God, from whom we are given life and all we possess; one where the Earth has been carrying us through the ages, evolving us from stage-to-stage toward a perfected form in the heavenly orbit of the Morning Star. But this understanding is what we need to safely travel through this Purification Time.
When approaching new and different knowledge, it is best to keep our minds open, as we did as children, permitting new information to find its rightful place in our minds and hearts. We are being asked, “who has ears to hear?”
So with that in mind, for the next few posts, I present:
Creation & Evolution in 4 Easy Steps
A solar system is self-propagating: it is produced by the sun, then consumed by the sun, and reproduced by the sun. This pattern perpetuates infinitely. The Egyptian symbol of the snake consuming its own tail was intended to illustrate the self-propagating nature of a solar system. Integral to this system is the evolution of species from raw material into their final form.
The first step is creating a Solar System. Without a solar system there is nothing – without a Sun and the the planets rotating around it, there is no environment and energy for life. So how did it all begin?
