The Great Message

From The SpiritWiki


The Great Message is a prophetic vision, set in 130 sections, of Seneca prophet Handsome Lake.[1] It is a collection of spiritual, psychological, emotional, and sociological teachings, part of the Code of Handsome Lake. It is, in LP terms, a healing and connection manual provided, presumably, to help a devastated and colonized people heal, atone, align, and reconnect.

Notes

A fascinating spiritual book full of ageless and contextual wisdom. It should be read with an awareness of the psychologically, emotionally, and destructive impact of European colonization, as a spiritual and cultural attempt to overcome the profound devastation. Also contains some interesting prophecies, and evidence that Seneca beliefs have been corrupted by Zoroastrian Archetypal Nodes

Contains a wealth of aphorisms geared towards the established of aligned Right Thought, Right Action, and Right Environmnt.
