I see…

…where there once was a river that had to been wide and deep but now a stream barely deep enough to wade in…I imagine her as she was in full life — plenty of fish to feed families, frogs hopping in the water the minute the little ones approach, dogs lapping up the water, cattails standing erect.  It is so rare that I even see cattails anymore that they feel like nostalgia to me.  Eerie.

Algae is forming..death is at the door because algae takes the oxygen from the water…

…and yet, the dragonflies and butterflies and waterwalkers tell me that all hope is not lost — that there is time for Mother Earth to heal if we stop destroying her and the life giving water that flows through her…

Mni Wiconi! (mini which oh nee)

Water is Life!

Interfering with the connection

I have often stated that I thought that the toxins in our bodies were interfering with our connection to God.

I have read in different places about fluoride being bad for us, but no one explained it as well as this site.

Regarding Fluoride
After generations of misleading propaganda about the benefits of water fluoridation, the truth is finally emerging. Dr. William Hirzy, former EPA risk assessment scientist, explains water fluoridation remains a government policy because of “institutional inertia [and] embarrassment among government agencies that have been promoting this stuff as safe.” Science clearly demonstrates that fluoride is a toxic chemical that accumulates in your tissues over time, wreaks havoc with enzymes, and produces a number of serious adverse health effects, including neurological and endocrine dysfunction. Children are particularly at risk.
Although almost every other nation except Australia, has recognized Fluoride as a health disaster and eliminated use of it, the US continues to fluoridate almost all of its water. Fortunately, with more public awareness there has been some local victories against fluoridation.
Most of the fluoride is accumulated in the pineal gland because it is the 2nd highest organ that receives blood-flow in the body. In addition to drinking, we absorb it by showering in it. Its half-life is over 20 years and can cause massive brain damage to unborn fetuses, and it gradually impairs IQ and other problems such as depressing cell growth rate.
The first intentional addition of fluoride in drinking water occurred in the early 1930′s in Nazi Germany for the purpose of sterilizing humans and forcing the masses into a calm docile state of submission and declining health-state. Marketing it as a benefit to children’s teeth, the sodium fluoride allowed for more easy control of the population.
Research chemist Charles Perkins was sent by the U.S. government to ascertain the truth on water fluoridation and found: “The German chemists worked out a very ingenious and far-reaching plan of mass control that was submitted to and adopted by the German General Staff. This plan was to control the population of any given area through mass medication of drinking water supplies… In this scheme of mass control, ‘sodium fluoride’ occupied a prominent place… However, and I want to make this very definite, the real reason behind water fluoridation is not to benefit children’s teeth… The real purpose behind water fluoridation is to reduce the resistance of the masses to domination and control and loss of liberty… Repeated doses of infinitesimal amounts of fluorine will in time gradually reduce the individual’s power to resist domination by slowly poisoning and narco-tizing this area of the brain tissue, and make him submissive to the will of those who wish to govern him… I was told of this entire scheme by a German chemist who was an official of the great Farben chemical industries and was prominent in the Nazi movement at the time… I say this with all the earnestness and sincerity of a scientist who has spend nearly 20 years researching in chemistry, biochemistry, physiology, and pathology of fluorine… Any person who drinks artificially fluoridated water for a period of one year or more will never again be the same person, mentally or physically.”

If you haven’t read World Without Cancer, this would be a good time to read it.  It corroborates the assertions that our health began declining after WWII, and it was a deliberate act.

And if you have any doubts that satan is behind all of this evil, I hope that you now realize what has been happening.  The pineal gland is a connection to God, and only those feeding the Dark Side would want to stop people from connecting to God.


Respect the Sacred

You of a certain age may remember Close Encounters of the Third Kind, where people were drawn to an incredible stone formation…but they didn’t know why…

The stone formation in the movie was real — Bear Lodge or Bear Tower…which was named Devils Tower by white men.  They claimed the Native folk named it that, but that could not have been because it is a sacred place.  The Native folk have tried to get the name changed, but were voted down.

This is a sacred place for them.  They have had so much taken from them, and all they request is to have a month of no climbers on the rock.  June is a particularly religious month for them, where they have ceremonies at sacred places.

I was sad to read this.  Frank Sanders can be a generous person, but I strongly disagree with his stance here.  He runs a bed and breakfast that makes a profit off of people coming to climb the sacred stone.  As other posters have stated, I am glad that Sanders is sober…but to say that the stone heals him, therefore, he will climb it no matter of others’ feelings is just wrong.

Bear Tower is a healing place.

People who are unaware of that can be disruptive to those seeking a connection to God and all of God’s creation.  Serenity is a hard commodity to come by in this world as it is now and I cannot think of anything we need more desperately now than a connection to the Creator.

And it’s not just Bear Tower/Lodge, but Bear Butte, too, which is also a sacred place.  You might recall I wrote about it when a saloon owner decided to move within a few miles of it, despite Native folk asking them not to.  The owner ignored their pleas.  And the native folk say prayers and tie tobacco cloths to trees all over the mountain.  There are signs requesting that people speak in quiet voices and not disturb the prayer cloths nor bother people who are praying on the mountain.

Nearly every time that I was there, there were people, usually white, who ignored these simple requests.  They talked loudly, even shouting, while people were there praying.  I was meditating there one day and was stared at by a girl that was so bothersome I had to stop my meditation.  I have had a headband I left there stolen.

If Native folk were to go into churches, taking sacred items or walking around talking loudly while people were trying to pray, there would be such a furor raised.

All they ask is for the same respect that people demand in churches.
