SERVANT OF THE MEDICINE
(Excerpted from the forward by Moira Timms to Light on the Return Path by John Kimmey)
It was a furnace-bright day in 1978 when I first met John Kimmey, in Flagstaff, Arizona. A group of us had come together to meet with traditional Hopi Elders, and other traditionalists of the tribe, in order to formalize a support organization called ‘Friends of the Hopi.’
At the gathering, John spoke with insight and eloquence. He had the quiet, understated dignity of someone grounded and centered enough to be invaluable to the Hopi challenges of the time. He was, I learned, living and working intermittently with the Hopi, and Grandfather David Monongye, clan keeper of Hopi prophecy.
Because of the knowledge and trust he had acquired through this close association, as well as his intrinsic integrity and ability, John was eventually authorized to deliver Hopi prophecy. In that capacity he has traveled for over two decades as a faithful “servant of the medicine.” And he has taught the “One Hearted” Hopi way—the basis of a life in harmony with the natural world and the forces and rhythms of nature. John’s teaching is pure; it also lacks any trace of self-importance or ego.
Before there was a name for the journey of the Return Path, it was. Native cultures have always recognized that just as the four seasons complete one circle around the sun called a year, so, too, do the seasons of our life (childhood, adolescence, adulthood, old age) make up the circle of our life. A circle expands, and when it contracts the Return Path begins.
It is in the nature of time cycles that as the Return Path draws to a close, a compression of events from the entire cycle arises for review (like the evolutionary stages of a species that are incorporated in embryonic development, or a person’s whole life flashing before them just prior to death, etc.) And this is why, now, at the twilight of the current world Age, ancient wisdom and archetypes of wholeness from the past, and from indigenous cultures which have preserved such knowledge, are arising into our collective consciousness. The purpose of this phenomenon is always to reincorporate that which has been lost or forgotten from the “first time” in order to fuel the final thrust of history’s Return Path, through the recurrent crisis of the “last time” to the next evolutionary level. Remember, every ending precedes a new beginning.
The Return Path is cyclical—a legacy of past wisdom preserved down the generations by the Hopi and other ancient peoples. Such a Path takes us toward wholeness and healing and a world that works for everyone. It is a Path of Heart—and the heart, of course, synthesizes. It unifies things into correct relationship as a coherent whole, and helps us see the similarities between ourselves and others.
The Path of No Return, on the other hand, is the linear path of contemporary first world culture. This is the path of intellect. Intellect analyzes, separating the whole into parts. By means of it we isolate the differences.
To restore balance to our own lives and the world, it is important to embrace aspects of both Paths...As we begin to look to the past for guidance, there are wisdom keepers to be sought. John is such a one. Now himself an elder, with a lifetime of bridging two worlds, I believe he represents a successful synthesis of both ancient and modern ways of being.
Traditional native cultures of the world have always held that their land is the center, or navel, of the Earth, the Great Mother. And through their inner identification with their myths and renewal rites and ceremonies traditional native people continue to regard themselves as the Mother’s guardians and caretakers. Within the holographic model, this is true. We are part of that model. So, if the center is within each one of us, too, should not we all share responsibility for the well-being of the Mother, the Earth?
Today, cultures who have maintained their ancestral wisdom-base speak out to us, urging us to change our world-view and harmonize with nature before it is too late. They say the “changing of the worlds” is close. The bottom line of what they are telling us is simple: The Earth is our Mother. Start with that.
Listen online to John Kimmey's archived interviewed on “2012 Journey To EvolUtion” with radio host Tamborine Borrelli on BBS Radio.
The purpose of this GROUNDBREAKING conference is to explore a radically different, more optimistic interpretation of the Mayan prophecy – as referring to the end of the world as we have known it. In addition to predicting a physical destruction of the material world, the Mayan prophecy might refer to death and rebirth and a mass inner transformation of humanity. The conference brings together JOSE ARGUELLES, FLORDEMAYO, ANDREW HARVEY, BARBARA MARX HUBBARD, JOHN MAJOR JENKINS, JOHN KIMMEY, JOHN PERKINS, DANIEL PINCHBECK, LLYN ROBERTS, RICHARD TARNAS, and MIGUEL ANGEL VERGARA and in the beautiful setting of Vancouver, Canada. Following the conference will be in-depth post-conference workshops. We hope you can join us for this powerful and inspiring event.
