Ancient Knowledge and Human Wisdom

The wisest mans sees the least, says the least but prayers the most Irish Proverb.

Try to understand water, minerals, vegetation, animal behavior, and then it is easy to understand human behavior.
George Goodstriker, Kainai (Blackfoot) Elder, Canada.

>In Europe, as people developed their civilization from the caves to the cathedrals, they left clear evidence of their achievements for future generations to admire. In Australia, the land itself is the cathedral and worship is not confined to any four walls. Each step is a prayer and every form in the landscape-and everything that moves in it-were put there specifically for the people to use and manage. And the mythic beings made clear the responsibility of the people of preserving and nurturing the environment. Their success in managing their world so successfully, and sustaining their culture for so long, is now attracting the worldwide respect it deserves.
Burnum Burnum, Aboriginal Writer

Their was always harmony and balance between the land and the animals. The land needed the animals and the animals need the land. But this balance was broken when man arrived. Human beings needed the land and were not living in that balance. Aboriginal people developed Back burning to help rejuvenate the mothers fertility and in doing this they became needed to provide the heat to germinate the next generation of greenery. They became part of that balance, native wildlife need native grasses – fire is a must for renewel.
Indian Chief.

Centuries ago you white people chose the path of science and technology. That path will destroy the planet. Our role is to protect the planet. We are hoping that you discover this before it’s too late.
Reuben Kelly, Aborignal Elder

Technologically advanced cultures dismiss the contribution of the Aboriginal peoples. I believe our contribution can dramatically change everyone’s life on this planet. It is imperative that people understand the separate reality of native peoples and the rest of society.
Douglas Cardinal, Canadian Indian Writer, Artist and Architect.

And he said you get rid of that anger and resentment towards whites for what they have done, everything you ask in his name will come to you-no difficulty, because you have built a compassion inside of you to the human race of the world.
Eddie Box, Ute Elder and Medicine Man, American Indian

She learnt from her elders that everything in the universe is perfect. People and anything else only become less than perfect when compared to someone or something else, or when influenced by negative forces.
Rangimarie Turuki Pere, Maori Writer

Old people are highly respected, honoured and loved. They are regarded as the living links with the ancestors.
Feleti E Ngan-Woo, Samoan Writer.

Land is not just real estate… is part of the essence of who Indigenous people are. It needs to be understood within the context of their spirituality and their holistic sense of creation and humanity… A landless Indigenous person is a person at real risk. The Reverend Paul Reeves, Maori Elder

Europeans and their perception of land is based on the materialistic. They look upon land as ‘’my land, I own this land’’. It is a commodity. Whereas Aborigines look at something as a part of the whole, a part of themselves, and they are part of that-the land. The land and they are one. Aborignal Elder, Musgrave Park

We cannot depend on governments to heal our wounds. We have to help each other. Hene, Maori Woman Elder

“Every man and woman should be able to build a home for his or her family using the earth under their feet and integrating some features of modern technology to make their homes resistant to fire, flood, hurricane, earthquake and other disasters.” -NK

NADER KHALILI, Architect and Author

The key to living a full and healthy life is meaning what you say, saying what you mean, and doing it.
Talk is cheap. Cons are easy. Action requires a commitment.
Anne Wilson Shaef

“An ounce of action is worth a ton of theory.” ~ Engels

humans are members of the same body
all created from the same essence
if one limb is in pain
others cannot be at ease
if you are indifferent to other people’s pain
you cannot be called a human
– Saadi – (13th century Persian poet)

“The truth is, everyone is going to hurt you. You just got to find the ones worth suffering for.” — Bob Marley

Crystals are very important to the planet. There are various concentrations of crystals around that keep the planet in balance. When these concentrations of crystals are broken up and carried off, the planet is no longer in balance.

Other people can rape and damage my body. Only I can damage my soul. American Indian Woman Elder

We do not judge the mutants. We pray for them and release them as we pray and release ourselves. We pray they will look closely at their actions, at their values and learn before it is too late that all life is one. We pray they will stop the destruction of the earth and of each other.
Aboriginal Elder

Whenever we pray we always pray ‘’mitakuye oyasin’’, for all our relations.
We pray for all of the black people, all the yellow people, all the white people, and all the red people. We pray for all our relations.
If there be righteousness in the heart

There will be beauty in the character

If there is beauty in the character

There will be harmony in the home

If there is harmony in the home

There will be order in the nation

When there is order in each nation

There will be peace in the world.

Very old Chinese Proverb.

p>As Jim Rohn said -”Formal education will make you a living; self
education will make you a fortune

information, in the hands of the right person
who actually puts it to use, is worth 100 times
– 1,000 times – more than it’s actual cost

Be who you are
say what you feel
because those who mind
don’t matter
and those who matter
don’t mind.
~ Dr. Seuss ~

The results of these crude attempts to engineer the demise of the Aborigines have been disastrous. The anger and the pain they feel at their treatment and their distrust of the law is justified by their experiences. Even so, what emerges is not bitterness but wisdom, not hatred but patience, not retreat but a desire to share their culture.
Derek Fowell, Australian Writer

Let us give thanks for this beautiful day. Let us give thanks for this life. Let us give thanks for the water without which life would not be possible. Let us give thanks for grandmother earth who protects and nourishes us.

To transform the world, we must begin with ourselves; & what is important in beginning with ourselves is the intention. The intention must be to understand ourselves & not to leave it to others to transform themselves or to bring about a modified change through revolution, either of the left or the right. It is important to understand that this is our responsibility , yours & mine; because, however small may be the world we live in, if we can transform ourselves, bring about a radically different point of view in our daily existence, then perhaps we shall affect the world at large, the extended relationship with others.

Are you bored with life? Then throw yourself into some work you believe in with all your heart, live for it, die for it, and you will find happiness that you had thought could never be yours. -Dale Carnegie

Miranda Austin If a mother has a fighting spirit, by the words they hear and the actions they see in the home, her children will inherit some of that.If the system beats you down get up again in your own time, and insist on those basic building blocks, nutrition, culture etc. If you get beaten down again, get up again.What has happened and is still happpening is atrocious but your childrens learning continues well into adulthood – they are always watching you as a role model for their age/stage.It’s nowhere near all about school. Google Yuri Bronfenbrenner, have a look at what he says about child development.

Water for health, for healing, for life: You’re not sick, You’re thirsty,
by F. Batmanghelidj, MD.

“I don’t know about you, but I’m concerned with what’s happening in this world. I’m concerned with the structure. I’m concerned with the systems of control, those that control my life and those that seek to control it even more! I want freedom! That’s what I want! And that’s what you should want! It’s up to each and every one of us to turn loose and just shovel the greed, the hatred, the envy and, yes, the insecurities because that is the central mode of control— make us feel pathetic, small… so we’ll willingly give up our sovereignty, our liberty, our destiny.

We have got to realize that we’re being conditioned on a mass scale. Start challenging this corporate slave state! The 21st Century is gonna be a new century, not the century of slavery, not the century of lies and issues of no significance… and classism and statism and all the rest of the modes of control! It’s gonna be the age of humankind standing up for something pure and something right! What a bunch of garbage— Australian Government. It’s all there to control you. Two sides of the same coin. Two management teams bidding for control! The C.E.O. job of Slavery, Incorporated! The truth is out there in front of you, but they lay out this buffet of lies! I’m sick of it, and I’m not gonna take a bite out of it! Do you got me? Resistance is not futile. We’re gonna win this thing. Humankind is too good! We’re not a bunch of underachievers! We’re gonna stand up and we’re gonna be human beings! We’re gonna get fired up about the real things, the things that matter: creativity and the dynamic human spirit that refuses to submit!”

spiritual strength in numbers is the key to overcome!
