The original visions and the dream of peace through prayer that used to be 1 hour of silence @ Noon in a circle, that was changed by various "brothers" to their own traditions, some antithetical to rainbow visions. i have been singing the songs written about these first visions at Red Rock CO by someone who shared them, since 1974, attending the Spokane World's Fair and planting the first gardens in harmony with many people from many countries, who stood for peace, including the rainbow people. We proved for many months of action research that people of different kinds and beliefs could live together on 35 acres with no laws and no policemen allowed except 2 to stop cars from coming unto the acreage of the city park that the city fathers had given us to conduct this great experiment in
in harmony with the land, the air, the fire of the sun and the water flowing in the river hugging the park.
For the whole time the World's Fair went on that year, the experiment continued...
We played our flutes and guitars,
banjos, tablas, jimbes,
cartals and congas,
young and old,
many kitchens from many lands,
lined the paths
we walked along. The original vision of the Rainbow family was that the children of God were scattered through all the nations of the earth, and these yearly gatherings were never to repeat a state, but that changed early on. I attended 1979 AZ as well as the 2nd AZ gathering, both WA gatherings, Idaho, Missouri in 1985, Nevada, and both CA gatherings, starting in March of 1984, becoming part of the Earth Base near Mt. Shasta CA, where people would jump off freight trains in the middle of nowhere and wind up with a family of 100 people by June, where we took yurts to the land, our old truck breaking the snow for the horses to get through. Only in the Holy spirit will one find the way to the Holy road of discovery of peaceful coexistence with both other peoples and other species, and the hope of the power of prayer and belief to heal this old planet before it is too late. Remember, there is no THEM; it is all US, as Cosmic Lady used to say on the streets of San Francisco and Santa Cruz, Crossroads of the Saints! To do unto others, including all our 4-footed, finned, feathered, and scaled friends,
