Eve of Destruction
by Chief Joseph and John Cali
Those of you in my age group
probably recall Barry McGuire’s hit song of the 1960s, “Eve of
Destruction.” The recording became a classic protest song. As
Wikipedia puts it, McGuire “expressed the frustrations and fears of
young people in the age of the Cold War, Vietnam, the nuclear arms
race, and the civil rights movement.”
Today many are expressing the same fears, but of another apocalypse
— global warming and all the other sins humans have committed
against Mother Earth. Are we on another eve of destruction? What can
we do about it?
(This is a long article, much longer than we normally
do, as this topic is a huge concern to so many today. Perhaps, as
sometimes happens with Joseph’s messages, more questions will be
raised than answered. We’ll be willing to do a follow-up if enough
of you tell us you want that.)
Lately Joseph and I have been getting lots of emails
from old and dear friends who’ve been with us since we started
many years ago. We’ve responded to some of those in recent
newsletters. Here are some excerpts of recent letters from yet
another of those friends.
I’ve been thinking a lot about the environment lately.
The earth and the environmental movement have always held an
important focus for me. I was well aware of the looming earth
crisis. ... (and) my younger son kept pestering us to watch An
Inconvenient Truth and I kept avoiding it. Finally, we saw it. I
was well aware of the pieces of the crisis, but never saw the
whole thing laid out for me in quite that way.
What if it becomes clear that we have been living inside
a myth that holds no truth and by following that myth, we assure
our own destruction? So, now I’m in the inquiry. What is there to
do? What is the path that will heal the earth? Is there more to do
than bring in Light, pray, give to environmental causes, make our
personal ecology and personal environments healthy?
Clearly, the state of the earth mirrors the state of
many on this planet. But, what to do? Or what to be? Humanity as
we know it may be left in ruins, but why do we need to take this
beautiful planet and other species with us?
I seem to be nagged by something in me that pushes me to
stay in the inquiry. How do we transform the looming environmental
crisis? It would seem to me that while physical action must be
taken, there is a spiritual and/or energetic action that may be
much more powerful.
.... if we’re the ones that are awake to the situation,
don’t we owe it to ourselves/the world to know and see what’s
happening so that we can be “in action” about the situation in our
lives/communities/world? Especially if we can watch it without
getting “sucked under” vibration-wise. I found myself galvanized
into action. BUT, I’m still really looking for what is the
appropriate action to take.
That is, will simply raising our vibrations and doing
energy work be enough? Is it a spiritual question that has a
spiritual answer? Or do we really need to dig? Many of those with
higher vibrations (myself included) don’t watch the news often —
too much fear-mongering and negativity. And, watching the news
other than as a prayer list for sending Light and prayers isn’t
terribly useful. It doesn’t change much and focuses on the
negative. But is it appropriate to have that same attitude when it
comes to the environmental changes which so desperately need to be
Is it better to have the higher vibration of seeing the
earth as whole and complete and healthy or is it better to engage
in the fear of what is happening to the environment and work for
solutions and to “wake up” people? Is it better to spiritually
“hold the space” for the earth and the environment or work in the
I guess the best thing is to keep a high vibration and
“do the work”.... but I’m not sure how to do that.
I would love it if you did a newsletter on this subject.
... I am very interested in your and Joseph’s ideas. And of
course, you are welcome to quote anything I’ve said. I love the
work you do and I love you both too!
Here’s Chief Joseph.
Friends, let us say this right up front: This is not
the eve of destruction.
Yes, you have challenges — in your personal lives, in
your groups, governments, organizations, etc. So too does your
planet have her challenges.
But those challenges are not the prelude to destruction.
There is no destruction. Yes, you live and die physically. Parts
of your physical bodies are constantly dying and being reborn.
Your scientists say every seven years you have a completely new
So too are parts of your Mother Earth constantly dying
and being reborn. You saw this in a dramatic way with the 1988
wildfires in the USA’s Yellowstone National Park. First, seeming
devastation, and then a few years later rebirth.
Nothing that exists can ever be annihilated. It will
never cease to exist. It simply changes form.
We applaud your deep concerns for the welfare of your
planet. Humans have done much, particularly in your modern age of
scientific progress and technology, to do what you see as harmful
to the planet’s health.
While we’d agree much of what the human race has done is
not particularly helpful to the planet, neither does it spell doom
Your planet is far healthier than most of you know, despite
appearances. Your planet has all the resources it needs to restore
itself to perfect health, perfect balance. Just as your physical
But the question remains: What can you do about all this?
As our friend asked in her letter, should you simply work
on a spiritual level, envisioning the planet as whole and healthy?
Or should you take physical action? Or both?
Our answer: Both. But with a caveat.
You often gather together in groups with a common
purpose. For example, environmental organizations, peace advocacy
groups, educational organizations, etc. All well-intended. All
good. We commend them all. Some are powerfully effective. Some are
What sometimes happens in such groups is the individual
members, while having the same overall goal, have differing
intents and methods for the best ways to achieve their common
goal. Then you have a “fractured” group, often achieving little or
So this is what we suggest.
In your environmental challenges — or any other
challenges, personal or global — go within, whatever that means to
you. Could be prayer, meditation, anything that gets you into a
peaceful centered place. Trust your inner guidance to show you
what to do.
Sometimes you’ll be told to simply hold your planet in
your vision and send it love and light. Other times you’ll be
guided to take physical action. Do whatever your higher selves
guide you to do — or perhaps you’ll be guided to do nothing for
now. There is no one “right” way.
Above all, know this: One person, acting alone in
alignment with her/his higher self, is far, far more powerful than
millions of others acting out of fear, anger, rage, revenge.
If you have a world full of powerful individuals acting
alone and separately, you will create paradise on earth.
If you have a world full of those acting out of fear,
anger, rage, revenge, you will continue to create more of the
world you have now.
The “bottom line” here, friends is this: You, alone,
can make a powerful difference in restoring the planet to a
healthier state. The planet herself is helping you do this
because her natural state is that of perfect balance and health.
It’s up to you how you want to achieve your goals —
individually, in groups, or both. All ways will work if you ensure
you are aligned with your higher selves. If you act from a
centered place of peace and power, nothing shall be impossible for
you to achieve.
You are not living on the eve of destruction. You are
living at the dawn of rebirth into light.
