Georgia Guide Stones

Posted By @ Apr 1st 2013 11:10am In: Pondering with Gwen

Sunday was overcast, too gloomy to stay home and a holiday to boot.  I put on my discovery shoes and hit the road.  I wanted to look for flowers and signs of spring...we had snow this week and I am very tired of winter.  

We headed south on Highway 11 to I-85, and then took the 1st exit in Georgia.  We went to Hartwell and saw a cross made of flowers...a very different Easter cross.  

Georgia Guide Stones

We then went Elberton where we found the Georgia Guide Stones. The tablets contain the following instructions in multiple languages:

  1. Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.
  2. Guide reproduction wisely — improving fitness and diversity.
  3. Unite humanity with a living new language.
  4. Rule passion — faith — tradition — and all things with tempered reason.
  5. Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.
  6. Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court.
  7. Avoid petty laws and useless officials.
  8. Balance personal rights with social duties.
  9. Prize truth — beauty — love — seeking harmony with the infinite.
  10. Be not a cancer on the earth — Leave room for nature — Leave room for nature.

    Not really sure why it was put here, but we really enjoyed finding it and will return on a sunny day to see the sun shine through the different holes in the structure.

    When you have a day to relax and open your mind to discovery, make a trip to the Georgia Guide Stone.
