    Calling light on the issues driving our underlying “sense of seperation” and finding ways to speak that help “The people” reflect upon these underlying issues should be a focus topic, The core value of ones heartfelt understanding brought to the surface on the feelings and memorys we all hold “deep inside” on past and “present” issues we all face.
    Be very careful not to drive on the “US and Them” viewpoint as that just throws more fuel on the wrong fire, its true we all have to mantain respect for culltural idenity but in speaking
    with many people both old and young and asking them to share there "feelings on the issues we all face, if one can get past the surface noise and external driven viewpoints to ones inner understanding , We suddenly once again “see” each other with very comon roots.
    I exprenced a suprising and very non topical example of this in the unexpected reaction
    of hundreds of people after there exprence with a Mirror story film that touched deeply
    upon the core feelings and memorys we “all hold inside”.

    Humans have to become self sufficient with biological farming methods. Humans need to stop relying on large corporations to grow and distribute there food. GMO is taking over, only the ones who adopt new technology will keep there healthy genetics. Its important for scientists to teach and inform the worlds population to become independent from the corrupt food industry that is taking over the world.

    brother, sisters, aunts and uncles from Idle no More. From Turkey I salute you. This movement of indigenous people is what will bring salvation from the greed of the unsustainable and destructive world order. Rigoberta Menchu says: as long as there is one indigenous left on the planet, there is hope because there exists original thought. Please teach us the right way. lead us into a world in balance.

    (Reflecting On inner understanding addresing the issues we “all” face in our world today)
    If you follow me and trust. There is no risk to lose. I"ll show you where to go,,, I will allways be your friend,,, We will walk “this way” together,,, and allways know where we are,,
    at times we find trouble,, we stop and listen to our hearts,,,
    Cause Inside we are strong !
    And where “feeling” can’t go wrong !
    We take this energy in our lives,,
    We’ll never walk you wrong.

    (Give value to the “feelings” we “all” hold inside)
    To address the underlying roots of the issues we “all face” our peoples must “see” and “hear” each other and reflect upon the Multi-Generational"thoughts" and “feelings”
    Held “deep inside” not to attach to our past, but to move to a better future.
    How sociaty "feels " matters. “speak to the people first”, not the goverment.
    Try a “diffrent” approach. from others.

    It’s not complicated, we must protect life and water is life, all the laws and excuses mean nothing in the long run. People must be free to live in nature, within their ancient non-harmful traditions and outside of the lockstep money driven madness. Indeed humanity must adopt non-harmful relationships to nature in a hurry if survival is to remain an option.
    The true wealth of the world is in our diversity.

    How can a first nations community be an independent nation state, whilst still being entirely dependent on the Gov. of Canada for funding? Is it realistic to have First Nations groups exist independent within Canada as a plethora of micro-states? Would it not be better for all parties for the Native Peoples become full and equal members of Canadian society? And why has INM put its support behind Theresa Spence, who is at best incompetent, at worst, corrupt and criminal?

    Still yet to here answers to these questions. Until I do, INM and most every other FN movement has only my skepticism.

    It is tradgic, that our water ways, are poisoned – our most important natural resource – essential for life, let alone health.
    It is known, in most indigenous groups that alkaline water is critical to health.
    Fluoride is a man made poison that Hitler used to dull the masses.
    I join in as many actions as possible to protect our eco systems, land, water ways and to stop Fracking.

    Here in Senegal our national water company is not only unable to supply good quality of water but also it’s rare these days in the whole capital city " DAKAR "

    As a Practitioner & Healer in Australia Hundred’s of us have been taking action for years. We do this overseas at Gatherings or in Australia or in our Homes. I give thanks to Mother Earth daily for the food on my table, I greet Father Sun every day when Dawn breaks, I thank Sister Moon for shinging every night. I have pictures of some of our Australia Elders in my home and I pray for them daily. When one is sick the word goes out via our network and we light a candle pray and hold them in our hearts. We are giving it our Best Shot. On Face Book there are multiple groups of people who combine efforts and energy and love to make a change to be the difference in the world that you want to see.

    Water is Sacred and needs to be Cherished and Protected at all Costs. We have known, just as our Indigenous Elders know that we need Alkaline Water and Alkaline Food Sources to maintian Health as Disease can Flourish in Acidic Bodies.

    2013 is the Year for Community which is: Connecting Combining Resources Walking Together Holding Relationship in A Sacred Way & Practising this needs = Recognising each others Skills Coming Together As a Team Agreeing Upon Joint Values = Outcomes and Of Course We All Make Mistake’s – We Are Meant to Be R Human Beings.
    As a Practitioner I use the element of metal – core stability, structural formation, able to bend without breaking and discernment.
    Sticks and Stones will break my bones however words will never hurt me.
    Having experienced rape, emotional abuse, assult and numerious life threatening situations trauma and shock have been a pattern in my life so moving through a process of healing and forgiveness is essential.
    However I also reserve the right to keep my self safe and to remove myself from a situation if attacks continue.
    With Gratitude for all experiences as they are part of my learning and soul journey.

    Witnessing, and turning the other cheek, are powerful actions that demand both great courage and great self control. They are the essence of peaceful revolution. The vested interests have tremendous force and power, like a strong wind. We are like the grass, small, weak…but many. The wind may uproot some of the grass…but eventually the wind stops, and the grass is still here.

    Only through action can people bring about change,for every action there is a reaction;if the action is peaceful the reaction shall be peaceful, if the action is violent the reaction shall be ?

    This movement is all that is left to save the land and water from corrupt and mean spirited politicians, governments, and evil corporations.
