In 1918, Lucile Taylor Hansen, author of He walked the Americas, was a college student, spending her summer vacation with the Chippewa Indian tribe in Michigan. Their language and dances, their culture and religion struck a richly harmonic chord in her soul. Dark Thunder, the chief, shared much of the tribal knowledge with her and one day told her of a Holy Man who had visited the tribe in distant times. This man came to the Indians when their empire was united, and great cities stretched for miles. Wherever He went the miracles followed, and always He spoke of the Kingdom of His Father.
Part One conjured up wonderful scenes of ancient civilizations visited by a great holy teacher who Benjamin Creme’s Master confirmed to have been the Master Jesus. In Part Two we travel with “Lord Miracle Worker” to Central America, Mexico, Canada and further afield, visiting the tribes in all these regions and imparting wisdom and a vision of a marvelous future. …
Throughout His travels, Kate-Zahl, as he was known in Central America, had sometimes foreseen a grim and woeful future for the people of these lands. …
When Kate-Zahl departed Tollan, He told the people of His visions. He warned them to preserve their sacred writings in hidden caves so that future generations could treasure the words. He told them to tell their children that Mount Popo would foretell the coming times with its stern rumblings. He warned them to stay true to His ways to avert these disasters.
Then He fashioned a giant rock, intricately carved with the future cycles of the Dawn Star. Upon it He placed the time of warning — so that all would beware of the pale-skinned marauders.
Some did not believe these things; some wept because they did believe. All were distraught that the beauty around them could so easily fall. But high on Mount Popo, a further cycle had been revealed to the Prophet. The year was 2039, and as He looked into the valley, a golden beam of sun illumined a land reborn. Ended at last was mankind’s age of carnage, outgrown the wars of its childhood. All before Him lay in beauty.
Large centers of learning with books from all nations dotted the land. Inscribed on their walls were His words for all to see. His sacred temples were lovingly restored: once again the priesthood kept the Sacred Way. This cycle, too, He revealed in Tollan, and His parting words that day were an invitation, a gift to hold through the coming years:
“Walk with Me through this age of the future. View the shining buildings of unknown material, the new forms of transport moving through the land. Walk with Me the parkways with their birds and flowers, and look deeply into the faces of the people, no longer shrouded by fear, but shining with My light. Gaze into this time as mankind walks full-statured towards its destiny — into the Golden Age of Learning. Carry this vision on through the ages, and always remember Kate-Zahl, the Prophet.” …
