This is a Korean word. Ma, the universal word for mother. Go, meaning ancient.
Also know as Gaia, Mother Nature, Mother Mago, or Mago Gaia.
She is the mother of us all.
Can you feel her love?
I often feel like the wind is kissing me, the trees are definitely listening to me, the moon is keeping me company, and the mountain is loving me with it’s vast embrace. I once even leaned in close to a flower to examine her beauty and heard her sing “I’m Alive!”.
When I graduated from the University of Iowa, my father picked me up and drove me back to Boston. As we drove East I felt a deep sadness growing in my heart. These highways used to be forests. This land used to be home for Native people. What are we doing? What are we doing….”
I know that I’m way too oversensitive and of course the human race had to build it’s civilization, but the pain of knowing the tragic devastation that we have caused to this magnificent land and her brilliant creatures has long been far too much for me to bear. So much so that I have often avoided it – trying to just busy my mind with the dramas of life so that I won’t have to feel the poison in her air, water and soil, won’t have to hear her heavy breathing, or listen to the wailing of her heart as she watches her children destroying each other and themselves. I am so not proud of myself for this. As her daughter, I want to do more. I want to wake up.
In the summer of 2001 I went to Seoul, South Korea to attend The Declaration of Humanity Conference, hosted by the New Millenium Peace Foundation. In all honesty, that was quite a difficult trip for me. As soon as I landed I was jet lagged, the food was not agreeing with me, and I literally just dragged myself through the tour that I was on leading up to the conference. I felt as if all seven of my chakras were completely blocked and I was in a lot of pain. On the day that the conference was finally beginning I woke up early in the morning, shot upright in my bed by a loud, thunderous voice in my head that said “Today you will find out why you came here.” Oh God, thank you.
When I got up, my stomach ache, headache and body ache had disappeared.
We gathered into a large enclosed arena with 12,000 people. Although I was physically feeling better, I was still in duress. It was noisy and chaotic as we were ushered to our seats. The stage was far and the people on it were tiny. Once the event started, I couldn’t undertand anything that anyone was saying because the translator on my head set kept cutting in and out and there was loud static. Right before the declaration began candles were passed out to the 12,000 attendees. I still couldn’t understand anything that was being said through my ear phones and I was fumbling with the lighter in a panic because I couldn’t get it to light my candle and I was certain that I was about to miss the whole thing. I frantically turned to the person next to me and asked him to help me and when finally my candle was lit I looked up and suddenly I was breathless. Everything changed in that moment.
12,000 lights in a dark stadium. It was like nothing I had ever seen. My heart lept. I felt as if I was no longer among foreign people, but suddenly I was simply among 12,000 Souls who had come to this Earth with the same mission and dream. 12,000 Souls who came to bring light back to humanity. It was the purest feeling of oneness I had ever experienced. Everything was silent, and there was only this feeling. I don’t know if I had taken the head set off or tuned it out but there was no more noise, just a deep stillness. It was like the hush of a collective Soul. I looked up and noticed a banner hanging that I hadn’t seen before. It was the Earth herself, with a soft blue aura. There she was, floating lovingly in the dark space. And suddenly I felt that all of us were stars, we were stars in the sky surrounding her. Ah, this is where I came from. I was seeing her through the eyes of my Soul. My Soul was looking down upon her among a ring of souls and we were all crying “Mom! Mom! we will help you! We will save you!”
I was never very good at praying before that moment, but it felt as if a prayer came over me. I literally felt waves of energy rushing over my head. This energy was filled with deep sincerity, longing, gratitude, promise and love. My Mother Mago, I will help you. I will help you. Once the declaration was finished the lights came on and there was a great, joyous explosion throughout the stadium. 12,000 Souls were laughing and crying and hugging each other. Sparkling confetti was falling from the ceiling and giant beach balls painted as the Earth were being bounced around the room. I felt like the Earth herself was celebrating and rejoicing with us. It was truly amazing.
It was from that moment that I really realized that the only hope for this Earth lies in the consciousness of the people. We must awaken the pure Souls inside of us, raise up our consciousness and truly bring our hearts together as One, and then everything will change. In that kind of vibration, we cannot hurt ourselves, we cannot hurt each other and we cannot hurt the Earth anymore. It’s not possible. This is my hope. It is a hope that lives deep in my heart – a hope that I am reminded of whenever I lead trainings and meet new Souls who are waking themselves up. This is my hope, my dream, my desperate wish, my earnest prayer.
That’s why, the thing that I am most passionate about of late is the Earth Citizen Organization and the Earth Citizen Movement. It is a movement to raise consciousness, to gather together the hearts of 100 million people, to awaken us all to the Oneness of who we are, for the sake of our beautiful and bountiful Earth. It is time to become One Light For Mago. That is our only hope.
Critical mass is the key. When enough people join together, there will be a change. In the documentary “The Eleventh Hour,” scientists, authors, researchers and professors encourage us to gather together in communities and work together with love and trust for that which makes our hearts sing. This is the beginning of the solution to the problem. And endless solutions will be created by our amazing brains as we go together for a great cause.

All of you are my dream. I hope that we can go together and build a beautiful world together. It’s not that far from our reach. I myself do not have children but I want to create that world for your children and their children. And I want to create it for my fellow humanity, for all of life that is pure and innocent and deserves love and hope. And I want to create it for my Mother, Mago. Mago, who loves me endlessly and unconditionally. Our one and only precious planet. She needs us. We need us.
