*I’m not much on bible verses..I don’t really know where they come from but the 2 above seem real and true to me...
“Once I was in Victoria, and I saw a very large house. They told me it was a bank and that the white men place their money there to be taken care of, and that by and by they got it back with interest. We are Indians and we have no such bank; but when we have plenty of money or blankets, we give them away to other chiefs and people, and by and by they return them with interest, and our hearts feel good. Our way of giving is our bank.” – Chief Maquinna, Nootka
Only after the last tree has been cut down, Only after the last river has been poisoned, Only after the last fish has been caught, Only then will you find that money cannot be eaten
A couple nights ago, I was talking to Dave Courchene, an Anishnabe Elder in Manitoba. A few years ago my son and I made 2 documentary films with Dave and he came to several events and screenings that we put on both in Canada and the U.S.So I like to keep in touch with him and with the amazing work he’s doing at his lodge, now an international healing center called The Turtle Lodge. We talked about the change that may be coming, which so many people are feeling and then I asked if he had watched the ‘debate’ between Clinton and Trump.
Dave said he couldn’t stand to watch it [I felt the same] but he laughed when he said that he heard that Trump was going to ‘Make America Great Again’. “That must mean” Dave said, “that he’s going to give back the land.”
So ever since the ‘debate’, I’ve been thinking about the huge, obvious and glaring differences between the politicians and the First Nations Elders and Chiefs. The shrill, ugly voices of the politicians spewing words of hate and separation, talking of war and money contrasted with the usually soft spoken, gentle voices of the First Nations leaders who speak of peace, of unity, coming together, of the Mother Earth…..
The politicians..they will never change anything…..EVER ….they are all part of the old world which is ending..the ego based, self centered way of being….is ending…it has to. These are not the ‘meek who will inherit the earth’ or ‘the humble who will inherit the land’. HUMILITY? they don’t understand what that means nor do they want to.
AND AREN’T PEOPLE TIRED OF LIVING THIS WAY..don’t they know there’s a better way or is everyone so brainwashed they’ve just given up?
THERE IS ANOTHER WAY….IT’S HERE NOW and available to anyone who wants to look beyond the ugliness, to “wake up” as the spiritual teachers say and have always said.
Anyway rather than writing anymore, I’m just posting videos and film clips of some of the teachers-there are many- who are pointing the way to a new earth…just the sound of their voices, the music…peace
