"We are the New Civilization" - a poetic manifesto by Flemming Funch.


"I offer this prayer of peace to declare a revolution of the human spirit. I wish to announce that it is now time for all of us to spiritually awaken and become enlightened; that the time for the enlightened few is over; that the age of elitist enlightenment has passed. For how long do you seek to wait for prophets to come down from mountaintops and tell us what to do. We all must become enlightened. To recognize our divinity. To raise up our consciousness. And proclaim our independence. from blind reliance on long ago sages, and find the answers from our own well of spiritual wisdom. We must ourselves become the enlightened ones. We must ourselves realize our Oneness/ I declare that we must all become "earthlings" of the earth. And not of any religion, nation, or race. But of this earth, for this earth, and by this earth. To create a lasting peace. On earth. "   Seung-Heun Lee
