Preface to AN AMERICAN INDIAN PHILOSOPHY FOR MODERN TIMES, unpublished
Hello I am Tzó-Nah. My new book, An American Indian Philosophy for Modern Times,is a continuation of my first book, I Am Joseph, The Instruction. A philosophy is a worldview or a way of knowing physical reality. I call American Indian spirituality a philosophy as opposed to a "religion" as it is not evangelistic; that is, we're not looking for converts. American Indians, as all the 4 sons, white, black, yellow, and red, experientially seek to make connection to the Spirit, the Spirit in all things. American Indians know when you ask for something from the spirit world you will be tested to see if you are worthy of receiving what you are asking. This "test" is an inner journey fraught with perils of humanness and the Spirit within all things, including within the human.
Expressed in the new book are personal glimpses of the illustration and demonstration of Joseph as the instruction, speaking to and through Henry, his creation, a human being. Spirits create all and everything and are carried on light (on the small level of the atom), all Light: sun-light, moon-light, star-light, and light from the cosmos. This type of science is not known although science understands the "toolbox" of the intelligence of the creation. All physical reality begins on a very small scale in the world of the atom; magnified in physical reality according to its own "vibration." This "vibration" is carried on light, all light, as "sound-vibration." Science does not quantify light by using the words "sound vibration," but rather as a particle or a wave, wherein those domains it interacts with and is made known. Science does not qualify the very small world of the atom where mass and force create a charge as a "language," nor does science measure any weak force akin to "static electricity" surrounding the atom. Nonetheless, all physical reality is underpinned by these forces and is an intelligence with will, all for the benefit of life on earth. The communication between humankind and this Intelligence is two-way carried out by thought, the silent word.
Henry is an American Indian, born and raised on a reservation on the Idaho-Nevada border, is a stonemason by trade learned in government boarding school. He is cutting rock on a "sacred" mountain top when he begins to pray to the rock asking for "wisdom-knowledge." Henry does not expect to receive anything. Henry is "urged" upon by his "Spirit" side in his prayers on the mountain top and through his grief over the relationship between the Federal Government and the American Indian. The decision power of the American Indian is stolen and compounded by imprisonment on the military compounds now called reservations. The decision power of the land and its natural resources is stolen by the law of the government through treaties by the Justice Department as the enforcing rule. The American Indian lost control of his destiny as a result. Henry comes down from the mountaintop and begins a "trial-test and tribulation." Henry builds seven fireplaces in four states, the last fireplace as a written, numerical, dimensional "blueprint" of the message given. Joseph becomes "open" to Henry and their saga begins, as an illustration of the new human being coming in.
Henry is a human being with a spiritual command.
PREFACE BY HENRY-JOSEPH PARADISE
This is a spiritual-command-announcement to the world's people. The Whole True God, the one to whom we are all praying, is the sum and total of all Spirit infested upon the face of the earth. All Spirit is in the image of the Whole True God as intangible qualities. The Spirit refers to themselves as the sons or children of the spiritual God. Spirits are true sons, regardless of our sex, because sons and daughters, as the Spirit, are intangible beings.
As Spirit sons we create ourselves [the Spirit within Spirit] we create the insects, the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the air. We create our own body system drawing to itself to grow from a seed of life, the soul-seed. This is included into the tablet's measurements. The translation of the fireplace tablet is to instruct for the next two thousand years.
The spiritual father of this world and the spiritual world has ordered and commanded a reform of laws. We, as humans, are all true sons of the whole true God. The spiritual father has the most profound and intelligent understanding of the atom. Access to this understanding is "permission granted" to those who respect the law of the spiritual father. Our creation, the spirit realm, is one hundred miles up from the earth's surface. The command of the spiritual father is out of our universe.
As human beings we know our neighbor's condition is the same as our own. Your neighbor is an individual, like a planet to his own, with his own operation. Humans are gifted from the celestial system to think and operate the body's functioning, much like the earth receives light, all light, for its functioning. Light continues to institute itself into your bloodstream through the capillaries in your head and in the food you eat, the air, and water. The Spirit, your Spirit, or your neighbor's Spirit, or personal God-Creator, or the son, or the children of the Whole True God, gifted the human with life, breath and conscience. Personal conscience is morality and is the intelligence of the Spirit within triggering or igniting the human mind into uplifting the society of people around them for peace and joy.
Know your God, where he is at and talk to him. Your Spirit or your God is within you. Talk to your God with faith and hope. In order to stop violating each other all over the world we have to know where our God is, within you and each one of us humans. The spiritual father's laws to all humans are to not violate one another, to give and forgive. Give of your blessings, praises, and thanks to your neighbor, for his health and for his ways and means of every connection bringing him satisfaction.
To the young and the unborn of tomorrow if you say something negative or demonstrate an ill feeling when you are not feeling good, always ask for forgiveness. This is the gift you give to your neighbor. To give and forgive is to live in spiritual harmony. Regardless, if we are a prophet under institution of these laws, we are under the same instruction as everyone else. This is a teaching we are all to receive.
