Excerpt: "Ancient Prophecies"

.“There are those

.         raised within the story
.                of Ancient Mind,
.        who see the value of what Modern Mind
.                has to offer
.        and who recognize the need
.                to join with Modern Mind;
.        some of these people
.               even assert that a coming together
.                of the two Minds has already begun,
.                        in fulfillment
.                of their ancient prophecies.”

This particular passage reflects a passage in the Awakening the Dreamer, Changing the Dream Symposium put on by the Pachamama Alliance. According to their website:

“The Eagle and the Condor is an ancient Amazon prophecy that speaks of human societies splitting into two paths – that of the Eagle, and that of the Condor. The path of the Condor is the path of heart, of intuition, and of the feminine. The path of the Eagle is the path of the mind, of the industrial, and of the masculine.

“The prophecy says that the 1490s would begin a 500 year period during during which the Eagle people would become so powerful that they would virtually drive the Condor people out of existence. This can be seen in the conquering of the Americas and the killing and oppressing of the indigenous peoples in the subsequent 500 years – up to and including today.” brian swimme and thomas berry the universe story
