We Are All One, We Are a Family

When the Europeans first came here... Columbus We could drink out of any river. If the Europeans that lived the Indian way when they came. We'd still be drinking our water. Because, water is sacred. The air is sacred. Our DNA is made of the same DNA as the tree. The tree breaths what we exhale... When the tree exhales, we need what the tree, exhales. So, we have a common destiny with the tree. We are all from the Earth. And when the Earth, Water, the Atmosphere is corrupted... then it will create its own reaction. The Mother is reacting. And the world has become "a market". And it's this market that we have to deal with. And it's this idea... of boundless and endless.. resources. And when you say resources you are talking about our relatives. Talking about our family. Fish are our family, it's not a resource, it's family. It requires all the Respect. The structure, of the World itself is such, it functions on Natural Law. And the Natural Law is a powerful regenerative process. As a process of regeneration that continues and grows and is endless, it's absolutely endless if everyone, agrees to the Law and follows the Law. But if you challenge the Law and you think you are going to change the Law. Then you are bound to failure. And in that failure will be a lot of pain, because the Natural Law has no mercy. It is only the Law. The Earth, is all-powerful. It wasn't made here for human beings, we're a part of it. But we don't have to be here, because the Earth has it's own process. And if it comes to the point where you destroy yourself as human beings. And you... destroy life and finally leave this Earth. The Earth is not going to disappear... there is not going to be an end to the world. That's, really a very interesting concept to us. No, the world won't end. People's life on it will. So, it's not the end of the world you are talking about, it's the end of "us". And the world, no matter what damage you think you've done to it, will regenerate, will re-green, will redo everything that was here at one time. Except, there won't be any people. Because, its got all the time in the world. As you are coming down, the final stretch, you're racing towards the finish and there is the stone wall and you're not pulling your horse you're not stopping, you're not.. you in fact, accelerating. That's the way I see.. the use of what you call, resources. You're using them faster than they're reproducing. And you're heading towards that disaster and none of you are pulling your horse. And everyday that you don't do what's right, is the day that you've lost an option. And you're losing your options every day. No tree grows by itself. A tree is a community. Certain trees, certain plants will gather around certain trees. And certain medicines will gather around those certain plants, so that if you.. kill all the trees, if you cut all the trees. Then you are destroying a community, you're not just destroying a tree. You're destroying a whole community that surrounds it and thrives on it and that may be very important medicine for people or for animals. So you've lost a community. And if you "clear cut", which is what is happening in America and Canada a great deal these days and I guess around the world. Then you are really a very destructive force. And simply replanting trees is not replanting community. You've lost a lot, in the process. If you don't understand that, you will. And that understanding comes... in a very difficult manner. Out of the hundred dominant economic units in the world today, a hundred largest economic units and that's the word they use, was "units". Forty-nine are countries and fifty-one are corporations. Now, you digest that for a second. What does that mean? It means that corporations are the driving force of decision-making today. And corporations are not concerned with human-rights they're not concerned with human life they're not even concerned with the proper wage for the people that are working for them. So what kind of decisions are going to be made on our behalf by this economic power, these "corporate states" I call them. Oh, there's gonna be... "hell to pay" as they say for some of the things that are going on now. So I... I think that people have to become aware and become awake and not... and... and, power is always in the people's hands authority they need to come of one mind and they need to... challenge the values that are being chopped-up at them today, because this has become a consumer society it's driven by economics, it's not driven by common sense. You know it's not good sense to to follow somebody, just because why? You can't give me an answer why you are following him? But if he were going to do... something like jump off a cliff? Would you follow him? Would you... do that? Use your sense, use your common sense. Everybody should be their own leader. In other words, do your thinking for yourself. And we look about and we look about for allies we look about for friends we look about for people who will understand and agree with those mandates of peace. And we are now placing in your hands all life. And it is your responsibility and it is your duty to look after, all life. And so when He was speaking like that, He wasn't talking about... our aunts and our uncles and our cousins and our fathers and our mothers. He was talking about All life. He was talking about the trees. He was talking about the fish animals everything that grows everything with life is... a family! subtitles ascribing by Sky Feather ~
