A revival of the hippie movement of the 1960s
is occurring today. Here I present evidence that shows that I am in the
forefront of this
hippie revival. I also show how the
modern-day hippie movement, the indigenous
decolonization movement and the UN-led
global ethic movement are merging to become essentially one single movement.
The hippie expression of the New Age movement is attempting to unify the world's
religions and cultures to create, in effect,
a one-world religion (i.e., a single spiritual philosophy) and global culture
wherein all of humanity will live harmoniously together as one. The
hippie movement represents a particular type of globalization. It is promoted in the lyrics of John
Lennon's song Imagine: "I hope someday you'll join us And the world
will live as one."
A special United Nations
event was recently held in celebration of 'The Spirit of
the United Nations.' Open to all U.N. staff and Non-Governmental Organizations, the program featured an
opening 'blessing song on behalf of indigenous peoples,' an expression to
'thanks to Mother Earth.' And a special rendition of the former Beatle John Lennon's
song, 'Imagine,' was played to those gathered at this event.
The Hippie Spiritual Philosophy Of The 1960s
The Beatles with Maharaji Mahesh Yogi
With the permission
of Maharaji Mahesh Yogi, Ram Dass published the book
Be Here Now. It has been described
as the "hippie countercultural bible."
Moving Toward The One was a popular Be Here Now
companion book. Its author is Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan, a world-renowned Sufi master and mystic
who died in 2004.
Autobiography of a Yogi, by Paramahansa
Yogananda, was another book that highly influenced the hippie spiritual
revolution of the 1960s.
The New Spirituality
world renowned Christian theologian, author and lecturer
Peter R. Jones, wrote,
in his article
The New Spirituality - Dismantling and Reconstructing Reality: Indeed, the Sixties was a
spiritual revolution that has now morphed into a worldview
that promises to alter how we all believe and act in the planetary era. The
New Age began to change when the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi introduced
notions such as tran-scendental meditation, "mantra," and "karma" into the mainstream
through converts like the Beatles, Mike Love of the Beach Boys,..etc.." The
spirituality of the hippie counterculture revolution of the 1960s has advanced over time. It is
now the "
new spirituality" of the
United Nations led global ethic movement.
The world renowned theologian, Archbishop Javier Lozano Barragan, called the global
ethic movement an "eco-religion." He said it manifests itself "as a new spirituality
that supplants all religions, because the latter have been unable to preserve
the ecosystem." The UN-led global ethic
spiritual philosophy, in continuity
with the hippie spiritual philosophy of the 1960s, unites the world's religions into a single religion by incorporating
the good within them. This
spiritual philosophy manifests as
the United Nations "eco-religion," or as the UN's earth-centered (or creation-centered) syncretic
religion - the future one world religion.
Alice Bailey (1880 – 1949) was a great prophetess of the New Age movement. She coined the term New
Age. She prophesied that when this movement sufficiently infiltrated the Christian church it
would radically transform the church, old scientifically outdated dogmas would be eliminated and
the new faith of the new church order would then usher in the New Age, or "Kingdom of God." Bailey was a
co-founder of a non-governmental UN organization called World Goodwill. The stated aim of
this group is: to cooperate in the world of preparation for the reappearance of the Christ.
An Alice Bailey prophecy being fullfilled:
ONE GLOBAL FAITH: A HIPPIE
WORLD UNITY SIGN (pictured below) is prominently displayed in a Caryl Productions 2012 video
about a large contemporary New Age/New Spirituality "Christian" movement that
is portrayed as a new expression of the hippie spiritual revolution. The video is titled: WIDE IS THE GATE - The
Emerging New Christianity
VOLUME 1 and
VOLUME 2. There is also a green hippie peace sign on
the cover of the video's advertised DVD.
The ex-Catholic priest and world renowned eco-theologian, Reverend Matthew Fox, promotes a
somewhat New Age/Hindu-Buddhist/Sufi Islam/indigenous people eco-spirituality expression of
"Christianity". Fox is one of the leaders of the creation-centered spirituality movement and
he believes that his expression of "Christianity" will radically transform Christendom, so that
it becomes a new faith that will unite humanity and resantify Mother Earth.
The scripture Ephesians 4:11-12 says the five-fold ministry of the church - apostles,
prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers - would last "till we all come in
the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man,
to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ. I believe that the apostolic church,
the Roman Catholic Church, is, at this present time, giving birth to the
And that when the Roman Catholic
Church gives birth
it will die and
a new church will be established. It will
be a new post-Christian church,
the United Nations' future one world church.
The New Age movement is
infiltrating the Christian church and transforming it. The old church order believes that humans
and God are separate entities and that humans are only human and that God is divine.
The old church order also believes that
God is located above the stars and looking down
on us . The new church
order believes that God resides in the deepest depth
of the recesses of our souls and that we can become one with Him/Her and experience our divinity
as Jesus did. And do so, by doing good works and practicing a particular type of daily
mystical meditation and contemplation.
During the 1983 annual Tekakwitha Conference in Collegeville, Minnesota, Reverend Matthew Fox
and I had a "talk." During our conversation I quoted a few hippy spiritual revolutionary
lyrics from popular 1960s rock and roll
songs. In response, Fox said, "those are some good
lyrics." I also told him about my hippie worldview mission around the sacred Dakota/Lakota
word wahkon (holy). At the end of our conversation he said, "keep in touch." He recently gave his
support for my campaigne to change the derogatory name of a Minnesota river. I am working
to change/restore the river's name back to its sacred Native name [Wahkon].
At the 1983 Conference, Fox and I made a hippie and
Thomas Merton connection.
Thomas Merton (1915 - 1968)
was a world
renowned Roman Catholic monk and author. He asked Fox to reach out to the
hippies. Today, the promotion of Merton's mystical worldview is
in helping people to find and become participates in Matthew Fox's expression of
the creation-centered spirituality movement. Fox has
"the Roman Catholic Church must die
," so that like a living seed
that falls to the ground and
dies, it can produce a new "tree"/church that will produce good fruit.
Today, I continue to believe in my early 1970s prophecy wherein I prophesied
that the Roman Catholic Church would come to an end and that a new church would then be
established, and that it would be called the Wahkon Catholic Church. And that its
headquarters would be located in Wahkon, Minnesota.
My Activist Work
I am the founder and director of
Rum River Name Change Organization. It
was established to restore the sacred Lakota/Dakota Native name Wahkon to a Minnesota river.
and internationally renowned Indigenous activists have given
support for the effort to restore the sacred
Lakota/Dakota name to this river. I have also received a supportive
letter from John Gordon Scott, the
United Nations' Secretariat of the Permanent Forum On Indigenous Issues. The
headquarters of my organization are located in Wahkon, Minnesota.

Indian Country Today Media Network, the world's
largest Indian news source, has published/posted
letters and comments of mine. I correspond with, both,
internationally renowned Indigenous activists and indigenous peoples' rights activists, including
leading hippie activists. These experiences, along with other signs, have influenced me
to believe that I am at the forefront of the movement that is ushering in a new age and
new world order.
Steven T. Newcomb is an Indian Country Today Media Network
columnist and internationally renowned Indigenous activists. He is a Shawnee, Lenape
author and scholar who is co-founder and co-director of the Indigenous Law Institute.
And he is one of the leaders of the indigenous peoples'
movement. He has participated at the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous
Issues for many years. We have contributed to each others' work. Newcomb has helped
me with some of my activist initiatives.
He helped me draft an apology resolution
that was introduced to the Minnesota
legislature. It includes a statement about the harm that the Doctrine of
brought upon Minnesota's Indigenous peoples.

in Indigenous Peoples Literature. Then
Paul Gorski, a nationally and internationally

link to it in the spotlight section
of the institute's October 2008 newsletter. In respect to my article, Amy Kasi wrote:

A Revival Of The 1960s Countercultural Revolution.
The world renowned visionary Daniel Quinn is promoting a revival of the 1960s
countercultural revolution. His website receives 20,000 hit's a day.
On the back cover of his book Beyond Civilization a review statement reads, "The
retribalization of the world: what a extraordinary possibility!" When referring
to lyrics by Bob Dyan, Quinn wrote: "Why things didn't end up changin." He also
wrote: "This time it'll be different." An article of mine titled
My Mission To Retribalize The
World was recently posted on Quinn's facebook site.
A paragraph in the article reads: "In the late 1960s, one of the leaders of the
Richard Carter, and I,
along with some other members of the Mr. & Mrs.
I. C. Rainbow family, my extended maternal kinship family, traveled, together,
to Wahkon, Minnesota to potentially establish a Rainbow family, kinship tribal
community. I am now trying again to accomplish the goal of the original plan,
"this time it will be different," the Rainbow family community will be
established so that it can lead this peaceful revolution to victory."

During the 1983 Rainbow family reunion my uncle Don Rainbow, after talking with me about
my mission to retribalize the world, which included (and still includes) my goal to tribalize
the I. C. Rainbow family, he addressed the seventeen families gathered
together at the reunion and said, "a rainbow is a sign of God's salvation plan and

I was of a somewhat New Age hippie expression of Catholicism for four
decades. Three decades ago I met the internationally acclaimed
spiritual theologian Reverend Matthew Fox. We met at the annual 1983 Tekakwitha Conference, an
international Indigenous Catholic conference. He was its keynote speaker. I shared my
hippie globalization mission with him. He liked it and asked me to stay in touch
with him. Ten years ago he gave his support for the effort to change the name of the "Rum River." An
mine about my work and the Reverend Matthew Fox was recently posted on
Fox's facebook site.
Reverend Matthew Fox is no longer a Roman Catholic. He is now an Episcopalian
priest who is
one of the leaders of the United Religions
Initiative (URI), an organization modeled after the UN and affiliated with it. The
interfaith movement, including the URI, is poised to become the spiritual foundation of
the United Nations' emerging one world government - a Utopian world government, which
will rest on the spiritual foundations of a modern expression of the 1960s hippie
countercultural, Earth-based syncretic religion.
I believe that Reverend Matthew Fox, one of the most visible proponents of the Creation
Spirituality movement, is, at least somewhat, of the New Age spiritual
philosophy and globalization mission.
Rev. Matthew Fox
years ago I left the Roman Catholic Church and
converted to the hippie spiritual philosophy and globalization mission. It is an
expression of the New Age spiritual philosophy and globalization mission. Recent letters and articles of
mine state that the hippie spiritual philosophy is the
spiritual philosophy of my globalization mission.
A blog post
by Steven Welch presents (in part) a picture of me and my Coolove.org article
The Hippie New Age Christ And The
Second Coming. The post is mostly about The Farm, the
oldest and biggest intentional community. The Farm is a spiritually-based hippie community.
The Farm's principle founder and spiritual guide Stephen Gaskin is
known as the world's most revered hippie hero. Mr. Gaskin was a presidential candidate for the
Green Party in 2000.
A statement in Welch's blog post reads: "If an evolved ethos and
practice of intentional community and cooperation are integral to saving the
world from humanity, then The Farm's history ought to be required
study for those who would pursue it."
A subculture group/tribe of people called the Rainbow Family have international,
national and local gatherings. The gatherings are an expression of
a Utopian impulse. They are temporary intentional communities -
manifesting Native American traditions and hippie culture, having
roots in the counterculture revolution of the 1960s. The Family's
goals include attaining world peace, promoting intentional communities -
spreading love, peace, unity and an earth saving spirituality.
Up to 30,000 people have attended international gatherings, which
have been held in many different countries.
A link to an article of
mine that I wrote over a decade ago is displayed near the top of a list of "Old Articles" located
home page of
Skip Stone's website
Hippy.com. The title of the article
Creating A New Culture
Based On Tribal Values. It presents information about my
correspondents with Albert Bates, The Farm's spokesperson
and an internationally renowned hippie hero.
Stephen Gaskin wrote: "The word wakan (holy) has a strong and universal concept
and people around the world know something about it." The Farm has a worldview
around the word wakan. This sacred
Indigenous word is sometimes spelled wahkon.
Richard Carter met and spoke with Stephen Gaskin at Monday Night Class and when
Gaskin and his group were getting ready to leave the San Francisco Bay Area and
travel to Tennessee to establish their intentional community near Summertown. At
the time, Richard Carter, his wife (Lois) and I traveled to Minnesota from the San
Francisco Bay Area to potentially establish an intentional community or commune in Wahkon. I
believe that we will be together again in Wahkon and that we will accomplish
our original goal. I believe that the extended Mr. and Mrs. I.C. Rainbow family will
come together in Wahkon and form into a kinship tribal community.

During the 1983 Tekakwitha Conference a missionary priest and one
of the leaders of the conference Reverend Stan Maudlin said, during a group meeting led by
Reverend Matthew Fox, "there is a whole worldview behind the word wahkon." I went to the conference
with a worldview around the word wahkon (holy). Wahkon (Spirit) is also a name for the
Dakota/Lakota people's (Great) Spirit. During my meeting with Reverend Matthew Fox I told him
about my worldview around the word wahkon. I believe that I have a mission to usher in a new
age and new world order from Wahkon, Minnesota.
Stephen Gaskin wrote: "The Farm is a demonstration project
for a sustainable future - a non-violent eco-friendly cooperative
community of pioneers ushering in a new age." I believe that the hope
of the world is the successful promotion of my hippie mission, in
conjunction with the promotion of The Farm and mission of Stephen Gaskin.
