Ο Κόσμος ως Ένα

When a European first came here - Columbus, we could drink out of any river. If the Europeans had lived the Indian way when they came, we'd still be drinking out of the water, because, water is sacred. The air is sacred. Our DNA is made of the same DNA as the tree. A tree breathes what we exhale. When a 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, the water, the atmosphere is corrupted, then it will create its own reaction. 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're talking about our relatives. You're talking about our family. Fish are our family. It's not a resource, it's a 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. There's 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're going to change the Law then you're 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. Wasn't made here for human beings. He said we're part of it. But we don't have to be here. Because the Earth has it's own process. And if it becomes to the point where you destroy yourself as human beings and you destroy life and finally leave this Earth the Earth's not going to disappear. There's not going to be an end of 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're 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 re-do everything that was here at one time. Except there won't be any people. Because... ...it's got all the time in the world. As you're 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, 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 headed towards that disaster. And NONE of you are pulling your horse. And everyday that you don't do what's right, is a day that you've lost an option. And you're losing your options everyday. No tree grows by itself. A tree is a community. 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're 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's happening in America and Canada a great deal these days - and I guess around the world - then you're really a very destructive force. And simply replanting trees is not replanting community. You've lost a lot in the process. You don't understand that. You will. And that understanding comes in a very difficult manner. And of the 100 dominant economic units in the world today, the 100 largest economic units - and that's the word they used, was units - 49 are countries and 51 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 a 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. No, there's going to be hell to pay - as they say - for some of these things that are going on now. So, I think that people have to become aware and become awake. 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 chucked 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 follow somebody just because... why? You can't give me an answer why you follow him. But if he were going to do something like jumping 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. "That 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. The animals. Everything that grows. Everything with life. Because it is a family.
