From San Jose Center, U.S.A.
This is how the story begins...
In 1993, fellow initiates were helping Master with a disaster relief effort for the raging tires in Laguna Beach, California. Master had been invited to speak at an interfaith prayer ceremony on behalf of the fire victims. Among the Buddhists, Hindu, Christian and other faiths, there was also Thomas One Wolf, a Native American elder from the Saquamish (the tribe of the famous Chief Seattle in Washington State), representing the Native American cultures. On this occasion, Thomas One Wolf said that he wanted to deliver a message to Her: "The elders want me to greet You with honor, that You are the great One. After the ceremony, he and his wife invited Master to bring a small group to dinner at their home. It was a warm and welcoming atmosphere and everyone laughed and talked together as old friends that day.
(Excerpt of the talk between Thomas One Wolf and Master during the dinner of Thomas' home in Laguna Beach, CA, USA. November 1993.)
THOMAS ONE WOLF: "Maybe I can share with those people that have walked with You today. One of the greatest gifts that the Indian, especially in my walk, have received is that we are not but maybe a messenger in these times and we have come to learn that because we are so few we must do the part that we can and deliver these messages of the deepest spiritual sense and of the very deepest meaning to our peoples. To those who say Grandfather, or God as you would know Hirm, guides our lives. Usually it is in an easy way that we talk because we don't have so many big words. And when I share a message like today with Master, it is because She is not so fortunate as I. She has to go to the world and give that message. I must go to the mountain to get it.
So it is with beauty these very happenings; this seems small but it is only small until Her knowledge becomes wisdom. Her wisdom is knowledge shared. So in every word that She speaks, when She is being of lightness and happiness or sharing a joke or in that way with you, remember something: the only word you are really hearing is Joy. When you are walking with Her and you see people that will respect and honor Her way and pay homage to Her, then you are gifted by the gift of Her peace.
These are what Masters are to the Indian. We do not know their ways, we only know one thing and have come to know it for thousands of years. The only word that the Americans have brought to us that would say it, is good. This is good that the whole world can hear, that the Dragon from the East meets the Eagle from the West and they come together and say "I love you;" and that is the world's message.
The Masters will teach you how to obtain peace of heart, harmony and balance. I do not know the ways to teach you that. I only know how to achieve as we call it 'As-ho" it means harmony, balance and peace of oneself. I can do that when I go to my mountain. The Masters have got the biggest job on Mother. They must share with the multitudes and they are truly the picture I paint when I tell many like yourselves to listen, the thunder voices are coming and truly I mean that in the best way. And the honor that the Master would pay to come and receive the message, so simple as the one I have. For Her to come tells me okay now I can go to my mountain and await for the next one (message).
So I pray that all of you, the Eagles of the West, and the Eagles here that have joined us as well, that all of us can remember that when all else is removed, what is She but my sister and yours. I love you each and all of you and thank you for blessing my home this day and it is as it should be. Aho!" (An Indian term meaning "so be it".)
MASTER: "I am so touched by your sincerity and your humility. That is something l have to learn also. I don't have enough humility. I have humor but no humility! I've tried to learn; it is hard to be humble, one American song says.
Well I guess God doesn't want me to be humble, Hes wants me to do something regardless of my personality. And as I have just told your Brother Teacher just treat me as a friend because it doesn't matter what title I am wearing, it is just a kind of habit like clothes. You can't just take it off it's too late. I myself do not feel I'm a Master of any kind. Otherwise, I couldn't joke with you, I couldn't be with you like that, I would be stuck. So I just ask him and yourself to treat me as a sister; a friend and if I can help you in anyway, it is the Great Spirit. I am just one of the messengers like you are and I am very thankful for your message. Because you have received it, you must give it to me. It gives me some encouragement."
THOMAS ONE WOLF also said: "I wanted to tell your people that I will be doing a very special ceremony for Master and all of you that walk and honor Her. And I will dedicate this ceremony to Her and Her walk; not only that but also from whence She comes, to the people of Au Lac and to the people of the Eastern Dragon, all of them will be included in this Inipi way. I hope and pray that this will make a resounding bell of peace ring, that will strike the times because truly it is a thunder voice that will carry the message and I can only do my part in the most sacred way I know. So our love in our hearts is with all of you. You are very very special. Grandfather (he points to heaven) doesn't make mistakes. Aho!"
MASTER: "It's very very special. Indian people have preserved this kind of sacred knowledge since thousands of years, I guess, and have passed it on generation after generation. It has never been diluted or polluted by the so-called civilization as we have it now. So their tradition is one of the oldest, the most preserved. Their tradition is the purest. I am very happy to get to know the Chief. It is very difficult to know the real one! So thank you for taking the time to come with us and bless the people and this land. It is very good of you."
