The Children’s Fire

Long ago the chiefs of an indigenous culture ordered that a small fire, called the Children’s Fire, be always in the center of their council circle to remind them of the first law:

“No law, no decision, no action, nothing of any kind will be permitted to go out from this council of chiefs that will harm the children.”

How shall we live? How shall we make decisions? What is good leadership? How can we wield power and invest in the future most effectively?

Today, the Children’s Fire is a mindset, a design principle that needs to find a location deep within the DNA of politics, religion, art, business, education, health, banking, cities. It is a pledge to the welfare of unborn future children (human and non-human alike) to safeguard the vitality and regenerative capacity of the earth.

It insists on a circular economy and it views any action that compromises the wellspring of creativity from which our species has emerged as an act of betrayal hinting at insanity. It represents the sacredness at the center of all there is– stone, soil, shit, water, bird, plant, cloud, child, me, you… it means living in a world where everything is alive and everything has significance.

The Children’s Fire is a story, a symbol, a fragment of ancient wisdom, a longing, and a way of thinking and perceiving. It was cast aside a long time ago and the consequences of this careless dereliction of duty have cost us dearly. But even today, it has the vision and power to create waves and inspire action.

The Children’s Fire invites us to be the best we can be. It is an invitation to a lifetime journey of deepening alignment with life. It sets us a challenge. It invites us to walk in beauty, participate generously, appreciate the inner journey as much as the outer, and it defines value in terms of what we give, not what we pretend to own.

Come learn it. The World needs you.
