The Four Worlds International Institute

Greetings and thank you for opening this discussion.  Like you, I look white yet my quest for balance and wisdon in this life has brought me mach information and given me many gifts.  Right now I am living on the coast of Oaxaca living a daily life not based solely upon the workings of the mind and the demands of capitalism.  I am learning from my Zapotec friends a different way of moving through the day, responding to what arises, and connectivity.  No matter what our genetic heretage, there has been trauma all around, some more recent than others. As suggested by Martin Prectel there is a great need for the awakening of our indigenous souls and a learning to live with simplicity and pre-industrial ways to some extent. Fools Crow described his work as a medicine man as being a hollow bone to allow the cosmic and earth energies to flow freely thru him in his work.  In acknowledging my native ancestry I must also acknowledge that my family purposefully hid it in irder to escape persecution.  Many hundreds of years ago the same happened to my druid ancestors.  My prayer each day at this time is to observe my judgments with self-acceptance, and walk with open eyes and an open heart.  Ometeotl Blessed Be

Kia ora Colleen - I have 'white' whakapapa/heritage which consistantly teaches me to walk in 2 realms because to harm one is to harm the other-my whanau/family from hence I came... I am classed as Maori once by 'policy' and other determinants when growing up; today I choose to be MAORI through heart & connectedness=my sense of belonging; I also acknowledge we all belong; it is just for some the shaping of realms has been based upon the colour of skin/colonisation - mankinds downfall was to ignore the spirit of indigenous realms and the connectedness to Papatuanuku-where the Celtics/Druidsetc also stem from...I have a white 'looking' son, neices/nephews &  true blue white friends - we have much to learn from eachother as much as TEACH eachother... I celebrate everytime I get a 'whiteperson' on side fighting the good fight because they dont fear what the native in me says... but acknowledge my heart  'for my people...' who I will always say they deserve better...United we can bring about change... Celebrate YOU a child of change and a new future for many...Kia tau te rangimarie

My own ancestry is, as known on record, mainly from the British Isles, from Germany, including German Jews, and from the Greek Island of Ithaca.  Informally our ancestry also includes indigenous Australians, but we seek no pieces of paper confirming this, and regard that such pieces of paper have too often been used to lower the social status of our indigenous distant relatives.  However, in Spirit, I feel more indigenous than European.  This is the inexplicable reality I inhabit.  But maybe it is true of everybody, that how we identify on the outside will always be more asserted by what is obvious in our genealogy, but how we know who we are within, can differ.  Who we are within, is always asserted via our external overt story, and cannot be sustained without the outside story having agreement with the inside story.  Yet who we are inside of ourselves, is beyond the definitions of flesh and blood.  Our brains with which we think these matters through, are of course, equitably that same flesh and blood.  So if I can say I know who I am within indigenous Dreamtime experience, I assert a quality that is a phenomenon within that European ancestry also.

Thanks for the invitation. I'm a human being with roots stretching back to antiquity. In all those lines there were seers that saw this time of great need for our common Mother. In you they planted the seeds to be nourished at this time . I am happy to be sitting in the garden with you. What shall we plant first. What are the companion plants. What seeds do you carry. Spirit talks to us all a certain intervals in our lives. This may be the place to bring them forward. 

My head went through a full revolution of how to answer the comment from Paul Tobin-Coyote Song.  I thought of my knowledge in homeopathy and so many many medicine plants I happen to know how to sing.  I thought of Australian soil conditions being so different, (high mineral, low nutrient, yet forests thrive here also), and I thought of how large the radiata pine from Canada grows here, and of how the Eucalypts have had success at curbing the expansion of the Sahara.  It becomes all too much to spell out in words without resorting to poetry, so I wrote a poem to answer.  I hope my meanings carry through successfully, even though the mitre could still need an edit or two.  Where ever you are, plant what will grow large, and increase bird life to enable of.

A poem here named “Mother Nature’s Deed”, teaching here how wrong monsanto etcetera had it about how to define “no free seed”.

 

Finding plants sustain being defined

Into family groups aligned

With Israel’s Tribes combined

With local climate

And true human needs named

I have had many seeds to my fame

But of seeds with me none are food

Rather the medicine’s reproduction means

And I live strong from Earth’s inhabitants eating roots

And stems and leaves please eat of these

But of plant’s seeds no food you need

Neither any other types of meats

For seeds of plants carry Nature’s greed

Not for healthy well minded bodies to eat

Yet seeds will in love real lessons teach

Of each family named clan or tribe

Of Israel in sky honoured in time

Each plants alike animals belong among

Needing consideration as relatives of human beings

If we are to survive these times

We all have the need

For everybody of the Earth

In her medicine circle’s worth

To be exchanging the plant seeds

And lessons of real need

Instead of letting false economy

Having imagined profit from the need

To learn what best now will grow where

As this Earth tilts and re-adjusts

To no need of politics bare

As is no means political in love

By fame gained from of the trees do not

But believe their growth may absorb of

And yet before we turn ourselves

Once more again into trees

Remember that a bird in hand

Is not worth more than what

Two in the bush could prove of

As increased bird life the pre-requisite please

For increasing all Mother Nature’s trees

Thus to spread all seeds

First increase all birds

Is the answer you seek

Before I launch my words underneath

The ground into what soil conditions I feel

Are already found to have been

Walked below as I have followed and known

No need in life to fear being vegetative growing

Everlasting and living

Through no more at first than microbes

Working it out via what became known

As Evolution is in seeds well sown

For whilst sins born in having eaten

The seeds in fruits none could deny belief in

Will involve via following Jesus

In death as in life I know is

Following through evolution

As means of learning all his mana transformations

From bacteria into fish through birds and bees

And animals living in and among the trees

Once more we’ll know grand old forests of these

Each human spirit will need move through

To cleanse itself and witness God’s love unto

Each causal immortal breath He need

God blesses who will eat no seed

With comprehension of what modern science is

This lesson being His is of the stars

Peladies via Southern Cross and stable

For I gave birth to no babies

Who could not the Eucalyptus sustain

With its inedible seed

The land will clothe us in forests indeed

All the while a marsupial’s pouch gestation

Represents the times that have been taken

For men to learn name this

The fact of Mother Nature’s own knowledge
