Bahai at 2013 Rainbow Gathering

rainbow2013    June-July 2013

When I heard it announced that the 2013 National Rainbow Gathering would be in    Montana… I knew for sure that I was going to be there. The same site was chosen as where the 2000 Gathering was held; a perfect, beautiful location.

I had been trying to hook up a gas share rider for a month before it started and at the last day, as I was leaving, my supposed rider backed out. Well crap. Even though I did not have enough gas money to make the round trip from Colorado I departed anyway. I made 1 stop in Grand Junction, to see if my 22 year friend and teaching collegue, Victor Woods, wanted to come. He was home. I said “if you can pack fast and light so we can be out of here in a couple hours… He was calculating in his head if he could leave for two weeks on short notice like that… Yes was the answer.

This was awesome. I was going to Montana alone to tell as many people at the Gathering, that had ears to hear, about the news from Western Colorado about the discovery of the prophecied Shambhala. Victor spent 6 months in 2012 researching and cracking the mystery of Shambhala. Victor had it so dialed in, he could point to the exact center of Shambhala on the map, with a pin!

We get to Montana, find the Gathering site easily, park, hike down in, scouted a super kind neighborhood to set up camp, right behind what became Crucial Kitchen (one of the best family food scenes ever!) and towards Kid Village (where I usually volunteer and shanti-sena from).

We hauled a big car battery down in there and a laptop and projector for a powerpoint show. We found a great meadow in line of site from Information Station and we built it! A huge movie screen. I figured that part out, a tautly strung tarp with a sheet affixed to the front of it, made a great movie screen. Put a big sign on it: Shambhala Theatre. Everyone in the gathering saw that theatre. We promoted Victors presentation for the next week. Here, have a look at the movie for yourself:

It certainly was a pleasure to see Kris Harrison (another Baha’i Scholar and teacher) and his wonderful wife Marielle show up at the gathering for a few choice days together. All in all, 2013 was a fantastic Rainbow Gathering and another tremendously successful teaching effort; another Baha’i victory.

First Three Baha’i Firesides on Video

Throughout the blessed career of Dr. Leland Jensen, the Seventh Angel and Establisher of Baha’u’llah, whenever someone wanted to enroll in the Bet Midrash and receive the Fireside information, they would have to travel long distances to places like Montana, Colorado and Alaska and then stay 4-10 days to complete the classes. I traveled across the country back in 1990 to learn them.

Now it is the year 2012 and technology has come a long way. Today, you can watch the first three Firesides online. Read the rest of this entry »

2011 National Rainbow Gathering Review

This year, 2011, the National Rainbow Gathering was in Washington State about 30 miles Southeast of Mt. Saint Helen’s. It was an excellent gathering. There may have been 15,000 to 20,000 people throughout the two weeks of Gathering. I was there solo this year so I had no assistance to build a Camp Baha. But I was able to give two presentations.

Nostradamus : Mabus and the Antichrist

There is much discussion these days about the “Antichrist” as well as about “Mabus,” who Nostradamus indicates is the third of three Antichrists to appear. The first Antichrist, according to Nostradamus, was “Napaulon Roy,” which most authorities agree was Napolean. The second Antichrist, according to Nostradamus, was “Hister,” which was Hitler, who was born in a town on the Hister river. The third Antichrist, according to Nostradamus is named “Mabus.” Read the rest of this entry »

The 9 Manifestations of God

According to Adam and Moses and Krishna, Jesus, Mohammad and Baha’u’llah, there appeared nine manifestations of God to Earth in the past 6000 years. These are the great independent prophets, or “mouthpieces of God” who appeared progressively over time to educate and spiritually edify and ultimately unify all mankind.

I want to share some details of this plan, called “Progressive Revelation.” These are the nine prophets of God and some interesting information about each. I hope you glean from reading and understanding what follows.

Chicago Tribune Bahai Faith Discussion

There is a very interesting, and heated, discussion about the Wilmette Baha’i lawsuit against the BUPC, over the right to use the word “Baha’i” in our teaching efforts. I am sure you will find some good Baha’i q&a here:

Prophecy Campus at Dreamtime in Paonia Colorado

This year, 2008, Dreamtime celebrated her 7th anniversary. Dreamtime is a uniquely Colorado festival in Paonia.

After the Rainbow Gathering, I got a hold of the management at Dreamtime and they scholarshipped us for a “Prophecy Campus” at Dreamtime 2008. The timing was sweet and no one can say there isn’t spontanaety at Dreamtime. This festival is small but real sweet. Victor and Josiah joined me, and together we built a little shanty shelter and set up a stove and a lantern and that big orange tent. It was windy in the am but the fort was strong and held up to all weather.

We were listed in the Dreamtime schedule booklet for three talks. We actually did five talks. Read the rest of this entry »

2008 Wyoming National Rainbow Gathering

This year my son asked if we could go to the National Rainbow Gathering, since it was just one state away. So we went. We set up a camp at Kid Village and plugged in helping the kitchen and organic community that was happening there. Every thing was super chipper. But on July 3rd, there was an incident in Kid Village. Every person at that Gathering  was peaceably assembled as guaranteed their right by the first Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America! Read the rest of this entry »

Tribulation Study Matthew 24

A guest has asked for an interpretation of the Tribulation Bible verse in Matthew in the Gospel?

I’ve been travelling and there has been some comment discussion as I had already asked before I departed for travel, what others thought the verse means. Finally, I am getting to this. Thank you for your patience, I will annotate my answers in <> as I edit this original post. ‘Abd’ul-Baha said there are 72 two meanings to every verse. This is what I believe the tribulation verses mean. I’ll start with the verses, then explain them:

“Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:

And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.” Matthew 24:29-31

Immediately after the tribulation <Tribulation is same as a test or oppression> Read the rest of this entry »

Bahai Hands Of The Cause

I was milling through some stuff that I thought was lost after my last move and I found this article I wrote back in 1995. It is pretty good stuff and really, really digs into the authority, or lack there, of the Hands of the Cause under the guardianship of Shoghi Effendi.

I hope you enjoy the read. Feel free to talk about it in the blog thread also. Here is the link to:
The Authority Of The Hands.

Two Messiahs

Messiah ben Joseph and Messiah ben David

The Bible says that there would be two Messiahs.

The definition of the word “Messiah” is: An Anointed Male Lineal Descendant of King David.

In Judaism, these two Messiahs are titled “Messiah ben David” and “Messiah ben Joseph.” Ask any Rabbi.

The first one Read the rest of this entry »

Amit Abha Fifth Buddha Bahaullah

AMIT-ABHA
A guest has requested a discussion about Amit-Abha. Baha’is understand that Amit Abha is Baha’u’llah, as he wore the red robe, and as He is the 5th Manifestation of God after Gautama (Sanskrit; Pali: Gotama), Siddhartha (Sanskrit; Pali: Siddhattha). “Amit” means “Infinite” and “Abha” means “Light” or “Glory.” Baha’u’llah’s Revelation comes directly from God (the Infinite Absolute One), as it did for Jesus and Moses and Mohammed and Zoroaster and Krishna and Buddha and Adam and the Bab.
