Indigenous Elders and Medicine Peoples Council statement on Fukushima

via the waking times, 5 november 2013 (Thanks Connie)

This statement reflects the wisdom of the Spiritual People of the Earth, of North and South America, working in unity to restore peace, harmony and balance for our collective future and for all living beings. This statement is written in black and white with a foreign language that is not our own and does not convey the full depth of our concerns.

The Creator created the People of the Earth into the Land at the beginning of Creation and gave us a way of life. This way of life has been passed down generation-to-generation since the beginning. We have not honored this way of life through our own actions and we must live these original instructions in order to restore universal balance and harmony. We are a part of Creation; thus, if we break the Laws of Creation, we destroy ourselves.
We, the Original Caretakers of Mother Earth, have no choice but to follow and uphold the Original Instructions, which sustains the continuity of Life. We recognize our umbilical connection to Mother Earth and understand that she is the source of life, not a resource to be exploited. We speak on behalf of all Creation today, to communicate an urgent message that man has gone too far, placing us in the state of survival. We warned that one day you would not be able to control what you have created. That day is here.
Not heeding warnings from both Nature and the People of the Earth keeps us on the path of self destruction. This self destructive path has led to the Fukushima nuclear crisis, Gulf oil spill, tar sands devastation, pipeline failures, impacts of carbon dioxide emissions and the destruction of ground water through hydraulic fracking, just to name a few. In addition, these activities and development continue to cause the deterioration and destruction of sacred places and sacred waters that are vital for Life.
Powerful technologies are out of control and are threatening the future of all life. The Fukushima nuclear crisis alone is a threat to the future of humanity. Yet, our concern goes far beyond this single threat. Our concern is with the cumulative and compounding devastation that is being wrought by the actions of human beings around the world. It is the combination of resource extraction, genetically modified organisms, moral failures, pollution, introduction of invasive species and much much more that are threatening the future of life on Earth.
The compounding of bad decisions and their corresponding actions are extremely short-sighted. They do not consider the future generations and they do not respect or honor the Creator’s Natural Law. We strongly urge for the governmental authorities to respond with an open invitation to work and consult with us to solve the world’s problems, without war. We must stop waging war against Mother Earth, and ourselves.
We acknowledge that all of these devastating actions originated in human beings who are living without regard for the Earth as the source of life. They have strayed from the Original Instructions by casting aside the Creator’s Natural Law. It is now critical for humanity to acknowledge that we have created a path to self destruction. We must restore the Original Instructions in our lives to halt this devastation.
The sanctity of the Original Instructions has been violated. As a result, the Spiritual People of the Earth were called ceremonially to come together at the home of the Sacred White Buffalo Calf Pipe Bundle. These Spiritual Leaders and those that carry great responsibility for their people from both North and South America came together with the sacred fire for four days at the end of September 2013 to fulfill their sacred responsibilities. During this time it was revealed that the spirit of destruction gained its’ strength by our spiritually disconnected actions. We are all responsible in varying degrees for calling forth this spirit of destruction, thus we are all bound to begin restoring what we have damaged by helping one another recover our sacred responsibility to the Earth. We, the Original Caretakers of Mother Earth, offer our spiritual insight, wisdom and vision to the global community to help guide the actions needed to overcome the current threats to all life.
We only have to look at our own bodies to recognize the sacred purpose of water on Mother Earth. We respect and honor our spiritual relationship with the lifeblood of Mother Earth. One does not sell or contaminate their mother’s blood. These capitalistic actions must stop and we must recover our sacred relationship with the Spirit of Water.
The People of the Earth understand that the Fukushima nuclear crisis continues to threaten the future of all life. We understand the full implications of this crisis even with the suppression of information and the filtering of truth by the corporate owned media and Nation States. We strongly urge the media, corporations and Nation States to acknowledge and convey the true facts that threaten us, so that the international community may work together to resolve this crisis, based on the foundation of Truth.
We urge the international community, government of Japan and TEPCO to unify efforts to stabilize and re-mediate the nuclear threat posed at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant. To ensure that the Japanese government and TEPCO are supported with qualified personnel and information, we urge the inclusion of today’s nuclear experts from around the world to collaborate, advise and provide technical assistance to prevent further radioactive contamination or worse, a nuclear explosion that may have
apocalyptic consequences.
The foundation for peace will be strengthened by restoring the Original Instructions in ourselves.
Prophecies have been shared and sacred instructions were given. We, the People of the Earth, were instructed that the original wisdom must be shared again when imbalance and disharmony are upon Mother Earth. In 1994 the sacred white buffalo, the giver of the sacred pipe, returned to the Lakota, Dakota and Nakota people bringing forth the sacred message that the winds of change are here. Since that time many more messengers in the form of white animals have come, telling us to wake up my children. It is time. So listen for the sacred instruction.
All Life is sacred. We come into Life as sacred beings. When we abuse the sacredness of Life we affect all Creation. We urge all Nations and human beings around the world to work with us, the Original Caretakers of Mother Earth, to restore the Original Instructions and uphold the Creator’s Natural Law as a foundation for all decision making, from this point forward.
Our collective future as human beings is in our hands, we must address the Fukushima nuclear crisis and all actions that may violate the Creator’s Natural Law. We have reached the crossroads of life and the end of our existence. We will avert this potentially catastrophic nuclear disaster by coming together with good minds and prayer as a global
community of all faiths.
We are the People of the Earth united under the Creator’s Law with a sacred covenant to protect and a responsibility to extend Life for all future generations. We are expressing deep concern for our shared future and urge everyone to awaken spiritually. We must work in unity to help Mother Earth heal so that she can bring back balance and harmony for all her children.

Thanks for that news. Good read. It is time to awaken indeed

I am still hoping that the nations' leaders will listen to them, and then humanity, too. Mother Earth will go on and cleanse only after shaking us all off like a bunch of fleas. Unless, that is, people wake up before it's too late.

Reading this plea for the people to awaken, for the corporate-owned media to report this catastrophe truthfully so that all peoples of all nations can work together to return to a life where we HONOR our creator's natural laws in an effort to reverse this runaway train toward our extinction... well, it really strikes me deeply as more real than simply reading or watching videos about it. Now that I've moved back to the suburbs of DC from the beautiful, rural, mountains of NC a few days ago, I've become reminded and disgusted by the constant pollution, whether it's disturbing noise from construction projects, the continuous sirens from every direction as these "emergency" vehicles speed through our stop signs at 40-60 mph, just a few meters from my doorstep or even my nosy neighbors who scold me for "allowing" my almost-8 year old to not wear shoes as he plays in our tiny yard barefoot, as if I'm some terrible mother who neglects her son because "his feet could get cold, a splinter, or something worse, like getting DIRTY"!!! OH MY! (We like to root ourselves with our bare feet on the ground because IT'S GOOD FOR OUR HEALTH AND OUR SOULS!) But our society is so devastatingly disconnected... we're actually doing almost everything backwards, inside out and upside-down. The consequences, if people, en masse, don't wake up, will be catastrophic. We're running out of time, and FAST! I don't want to go through something hell-ish, but humanity needs a wake-up call (a kick in the arse).. and I'm afraid it's coming. Soon. I just pray the conscious ones, like us, who do honor our Mother Earth, will be spared so that we can continue to do our work to bring it all back to homeostasis, renew what our indigenous ancestors have taught us and take our planet to her next level of evolution.

Great post here, Laron. I'm passing this one on. Thank you <3

thank you Laron. we each hold the same responsibility as the Elders. we are each, Elders and Keepers of our Mother Terra. it is not someone else's job.

Linda said...

Absolutely Dorothi.

LightPaige - perhaps it's no wonder you are where you are - sounds like those folk need a bright light anchor. We are waking up... I was saying to my dad a while back when he was commenting on the world situation - as is reported on tv mainstream - that although it may not seem like it, I sense an undeniable bubbling from underneath of a rise in consciousness. It may not be completely visible until it's actuated in our reality, but it's happening like water heating in the pot. The groundswell is growing, we just need to hold our light, and speak our truth, that's all. <3
