She senses, she feels..
She drops to the ground,crouching, feet vibrating..connecting to those within the pulse of the mother earth of cultures past from long ago...great warriors,shamans,goddess all calling to her to stand within this world and teach what they may bring.
She sees without seeing, she knows.
Gateways fall away beneath and beyond her..she stands in the centre of their time within no time.
She understands..it is time.'
Through the words of great wisdom..
How can you buy and sell the sky? The warmth of the land?
If we do not own the freshess of the air and the sparkle of the water how can we buy them?
Every part of this earth is sacred to my people.
The air is precious to the red man,for all things share the same breath,the beast,the tree,the man they all share the same breath.
What is man without the beasts?
If all the beasts were gone,men would die from the great loneliness of spirit; for whatever happens to the beasts soon happens to man.
All things are connected.
Whatever befalls the earth,befalls the sons of the earth.
If men spit upon the ground,they spit upon themselves.This we know, the earth doesn't belong to man;
man belongs to the earth.
This we know,all things are connected,like the blood that unites one family.
Man didn't weave the web of life; he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web,he does to
Where is the thicket? Gone
Where is the eagle? Gone
And what is it to say goodbye to the swift pony and the hunt?
The end of living and the beginning of survival.
So if we sell you our land,love it as we have loved it, care for it as we have cared for it. Hold in your mind the memory of the land as it is when your take it.
One thing we know our God [Universe] is the same God [Universe].
This earth is precious to Him..Even the white man cannot be exempt from the common destiny.
We may be brothers after all. We shall see!
[ A shortened version of words spoken through the eyes of Chief Seattle to the Great White Chief in Washington late 1800's on request to buy their land.]
To me these words have great truth and wisdom within them.. How can they not for to me they speak the truth..I understand about progress and the graphics of change..i just ask you this ? Would our world have been different if we had learnt to walk with them side by side,learning,understanding and accepting them as one of us united as one..I believe so for they have told me so.
When i was in South Dakota i visited Wounded Knee where one of the most [to me] horrific slaughters took place of over 350 of the Lakota Nation because they kept their sacred culture of the Sun Dance Ceremony alive against the threat from the White people of that time that they were for forbidden to do so. Of those 350 so Lakota Nation most of that number were woman and children..yes..woman and children of innocence..just like others in this world of innocence.
I placed my hand upon the earth where the grave site was where their bodies were thrown into graves with no repect and stripped of their clothing for prizes..and i felt Mother Nature's tears,her saddness..i felt it within me she was crying for the pain we had created for a senseless act of brutality just because we didnt want to know.. and when you are standing on a hill top in the heart of this land and you hear the spiritually wailing and cries of those of the woman and children that were innocently taken.. You know something needs to change.. We do.
I'm sure if I knelt upon the ground where Cecil the majestic lion one was slaughtered for the price of a killing Mother Earth would still be crying.. So I say Enough,..Next time when your at the beach dig your feet within the sand and feel,lay on your back in your back yard or in the park and listen to the heart beat of Mother Nature... Listen carefully and you will hear them too.. Those of long ago saying,,Enough..When we learn to respect Mother Nature and all within her,we will learn to respect our selves and all those within her heart.
I cannot solve all in this world..But through what i believe i can heal what needs to be healed..Listen to the truth of the Voice of Mother Nature..she whispers to you on the breath of the wind..Can you hear her? I believe silently you can... Choose to listen if you can.
Even Midnight is saying listen to the silence within the unknow..
Wounded Knee Grave Site where the earth stills cries....
Will return soon
