This video is beautiful, first of all. Everyone should watch it in full screen. The ice is melting now, and it is as inescapable as the truth of the words of Chief Oren R. Lyons. He says there must be "a reconciliation between the People and the natural world". He calls on the leaders of the world to consider the beliefs of the world's Indigenous Peoples, who "Believe in the spiritual Powers of the Universe. We believe in the ultimate Power and authority of a limitless Energy beyond our comprehension." Just contemplating that for a minute is ego-dissolving.

Our way of life is so divorced from the laws of the universe, that we cannot go on as we have. Chief Lyons also points out that if we are to have peace, and to become aligned with the natural law, it will take a huge effort. We have to let go of our egos, I think, as a precursor to taking on the role as Leaders of Peace, as Chief Lyons says. It's our responsibility. There is so much in this talk. I'm going to use this video as a meditation. Thanks, Dandelion!

The message from Chief Lyons is not a new warning.
We are aware of the grim path laid out before us.
Nature will take it's course and there will be damage
because we can't re-freeze the Artic.
However, Chief Lyons does predict a prophet's warning
to waste no time to prevent man's human made disasters.

Thank you Dandelion, this video brings back a memory...I was around 10 years old and there was this commercial showing an older indian man in a canoe...he was slowly paddling , looking around and tears were streaming down his face as he saw the damage done by those who basically stole his land, he cried for our mother earth and the message was clear. we must stop hurting our planet or we will perish, Now,,,over forty years later the damage is clear and it will get worse. That ritzy beach house by the ocean is only that...a house by the ocean, your riches will not save you from mother nature. Corporate greed is what the Europeans brought to the natives...not to mention sickness and strife...the greedy plunderers of today have ears stuffed with money, they cannot hear the winds stirring before the storm and are blind, all they see are dollar signs in front of their eyes. Mother nature will smack them in the face and if they survive...their ignorance and stupidity will seek retribution by exploitation of her precious resources...for example, the arctic is melting because of climate change that was sped up by humans...and corporate greed, so what do they do?? they try to drill in the unfrozen waters...logic dictates that man has done enough damage...but there will be no logic thanks to the the dollar signs in their heads where there once was a brain. I may sound dismal but I call it as I see it. The old ways need to stop, now! There are new and better ways but the old cronies of today are blocking these for the sake of greed and care nothing for the future of there own childrens children. Our children depend on us now to make the right choices in government and our children are the ones that will have to vote wisely and make sure those in power are on board for a better world. Oh...and we need to get rid of all of those nasty lobbyists !

The man you speak about in the commercial was Iron Eyes Cody. Here is a link about him.
Iron Eyes Cody

Although his love for the American Indian never faultered, and for years it was never revealed he was Italian. His heart was always in the right place for the native people and he even adopted a son who was of Dakota-Maricopa ancestry.

For those not familiar with the commercial it can be found at this link and was launched on the first Earth Day of 1971. I too remember it well Elizabeth.

You have found a true gem here, Sheryl.
My eyes fell on Judy C's comment before I watched it, so I watched as she recommends, full screen; and I was transported by a magical voice of great depth, understanding,& wisdom, speaking to images of great beauty & power.

Afterwards, I left this comment on the YouTube page, but didn't have time to comment here.
This is a magnificent video: the images, the music, & the voice that carries an essential message. All is harmony in this little masterpiece.

Thank you, Chief Lyons. Everything you say is stripped down to the bare essential & it is beautiful to hear your words of truth. Yes, we must align ourselves with Mother Earth & put an end to the voracious exploitation of natural resources- that only the 1% or 10% profit from- so that our world, our ecosystems & our species itself will have a chance to survive.

TY, Green-Cross & Plantagon, the Swedish makers of this striking video.

Also, thanks to Sheryl for sharing this with us,
as well as sharing the links to the commercial, 'the Crying Indian' & info on Iron Eyes Cody (you are informed on just about EVERYTHING! Impressive!)

& thanks to Terry V, who's kindly linked to an 'Oren Lyons interview with Bill Moyers,' but accidentally posted it as 'Oren Meyers interview'

Yesterday, I couldn't be here with you all @ C2 because I participated in an enormous demonstration here in Paris. Organizers --the real French left (left of Pres. Hollande & his Socialist Party) & the Green Party-- said we were over 100,000, but as usual the police statistics give a far lower number: 30,000.
I believe we were over 100,000 because it took nearly an hour for all of us, amassed at Place de la Bastille (the large traffic roundabout, symbol of the French Revolution, that marks the place where Bastille prison/forteress stood until it was destroyed during the Revolution 1789-1790) --emptied of all vehicules and filled with an enormous sign-carrying & banner-&-flag-waving crowd-- to move out & down the large avenue towards Nation, the traditional destination of French Left démonstrations - the long walk from Bastille roundabout to Nation roundabout is the traditional itinerary.
We were there to protest the Hollande govt's lack of progress & decisive action in all areas of social concern: the end of austerity & neo-liberal economic policies in France & in Europe; the end of financial market dominance in the Euro zone over sovereign states & their peoples; corruption & collusion between elected officials & corporate power, particularly in European government instances where lobbies & lobbyists have far too much influence; the illegitimate closing down of plants & companies, causing ever more unemployment; the unrepresentivity of the Hollande government in choosing to back austerity & neo-liberal economic policies; the Hollande govt failure to prevent plants & companies from closing down; immigration & forced expulsions from France, particularly of teens in high school here; implementation of a 'green' agenda, including the end of nuclear power plants; etc.
Everyone carried the banner or sign highlighting the issue most important to him, but I was happy to see quite a few carrying the French equivalent of "People Not Profits!" -- which I had never seen before in France.
There was a contingent of marchers from Latin American countries, with a little truck playing popular revolutionary & protest songs; & among those marching in front of this truck, a whole group of Colombians with a banner as large as the avenue we were marching along.
There were also Greeks from the country first & hardest hit by EU austerity diktats, so many people reduced to poverty, a present-day tragedy. The Greeks present at the demonstration were collecting funds for the people's clinics that have sprouted up, now that the Greek national health service is too underfunded to provide the health care that is ostensibly their mission & that Greeks need & deserve. Is not proper health care a basic & fundamental human right?? I donated what I could...
To illustrate what got the true Left & the Greens out ‘en force’ yesterday:
30 April 2013 - "Amid jobs collapse, French President Hollande backs austerity in Europe": "With jobless figures at all-time historic highs in Spain and France, French President François Hollande of the Socialist Party (PS) has signaled that he will continue supporting austerity policies in France and throughout Europe.
Fully 26 million European workers are unemployed, including six million workers in Spain and three million in France. With large sections of the European economy in free-fall and Hollande’s poll ratings collapsing to 26 percent, the ruling class is demonstrating that it is committed to its policy of austerity and impervious to popular opposition. .../... "
Feb 15, 2013 - "Hollande Tiptoes Toward Raid on Pensions With EU Pressure": "Facing European Union pressure to reach budget targets, the Socialist president is risking the wrath of his core supporters to shrink the pension system, which had a deficit of 14 billion euros ($19 billion) in 2011. .../..."
And most importantly, from 'Foreign Policy', April 17, 2013 - "Death by a Thousand Cuts" - "Just one year into François Hollande's presidency, he's on the ropes and praying for a miracle": His ex-Budget Minister, "effectively Hollande's 'tax czar,' " - a position requiring impeccable credentials, utter credibility & probity- has had to resign in a huge scandal, after lying for months about his unreported Swiss & Singapore bank accounts! It has since come out that he got all that money to hide away in a particularly unethical way: underhandedly wielding his considerable influence,years before joining Hollande's govt, as a lackey for Big Pharma! ... The postion of budget minister was crucial in Hollande's government, & the corrupt minister's undoing a major embarrassment & catastrophe, "as Hollande had promised to make rich people pay more, while cracking down on individual & corporate tax evaders-- a program that was designed to help shrink France's troubling budget deficit & 'moralize' the country's relationship to money.")
Isn't this fitting? Really the proof of the veracity & the prescience of Chief Oren Lyons message! Growing inequality! Exploitation of the Earth for the benefit of the few! Corruption & greediness!
Basically, that's what we were protesting.

Hi Dandy-1 .. Thanks for spreading words of Knowledge and Elders and wisdom :) . I was at a Film Fest and seen and was told that some of my family were under attack by a certain troll on care2, this person is trolling and has been reported by me and The Wolf Army ..but that is not part of the issue here. First of all, Thank you for always having some enlightenment. The Idle No More Movement is growing large and we have added many many causes and org's alongside us. The females are leading it, as you are aware. And the more people become aware of the Nations and some of the History leading up to the prophecy the more Dandy-dear ... yes YOU, your undying wisdom becomes even more clear to everyone around you.

Tuesday May 7, 2013, 6:47 am
Gene-apparently they are listening with both ears- in one and out the other. One conference after another on climate change and yet they all end without any reasonable resolutions.. It is time for some different steps with a new title, such as a number of laws banning many of our human behaviours, rather misbehaviours that is.
Just the mere word of climate change evidently rings different bells for different parts of society, counting in the predatory corporations, people might have grown tired of it. Let's find a new name to tackle the problem. The target should be WE, ALL OF US, as we now know it's fruitless to target the other big polluters. The entire world population together makes a just as big polluter. And we are so used to getting punished and blamed for everything that it should be an easy task for governments to add one more.
The freedom of environmental misbehaviour should not be granted to us any longer!

Sheryl G (363)

Angelika, "The freedom of environmental misbehaviour should not be granted to us any longer!"

So correct, and if we, the human beings don't change it, it will be changed for us, and in ways that we might not be happy with. Our Earth is a living being, she will protect herself, even if it means ridding herself of the many nits who keep biting her, blowing her up, and throwing their trash into her veins. She will react and is already doing so.

It doesn't have to be this way. We have ways to produce energy to meet our needs 100% with natural ways.

Sheryl i posted The Message by Chief Oren R. Lyons Faithkeeper of Turtle Clan on my profile page and posted also to Twitter. Everyone needs to hear that we are in fact as Chief Lyons says " all bound by the same natural law, the laws of Creation. "
We must be courageous in our actions, as much as the leaders of our world to whom he is addressing, we also need to "realign" ourselves with nature before it is too late. Our collective voices in accordance with spiritual laws must transcend generations.
I believe that if we do not take responsibility for our actions now the next generations will suffer. Though yet unborn I feel they 'look to us' hoping we will do the right thing. That being to walk in harmony with all living things, in harmony with ourselves so we can walk in harmony with others, in peace with all sentient beings, honoring the teachings offered through the wisdom of Chief Lyons and others.
I will read the transcript of the interview by Bill Moyers with Chief Oren Lyons. I am in awe of his wisdom, the tone of his voice so strong yet filled with a gentleness that emerges from compassion.
Thank you Sheryl for posting The Message. I send prayers for humans to become true Human Beings and true Care Takers of our Mother Earth, our Oceans and all our Relations.

Thank you Dandelion for sharing the Wisdom of Chief Irons through this Truth. Since as long as I recall I have been drawn to do everything within my power to respect Earth's mother. With no living person to teach me these things my Spirit was connected in ways I have always listened. My heart has been BLEEDING for many decades, watching and feeling the pain our uncivilized leaders to do these crimes against Nature and people along with our neighbors who have done nothing
I just came from my SACRED little area in our Farm, as I could not longer work due to it being in the mid 90's! To me it is as SACRED as the highest mountain or eternal untouched natural beauty which is only in my mind these days. I will go back around 2 as I am graced to tend to it's needs, with RESPECT and gentle hands. While watching the Crying Indian I will share once again that I cry every time I see any trash or cigarette butts along my walks that are endless. People through their GARBAGE a foot from a restaurant trash bin and no matter how dressed and fancy I may appear I bend down and pick everything up. This is such a tiny thing to do, but I can say I have never disrespect our Earth in anyway, EVER! I always carry a basket and pick up EVERYTHING that represents disrespect and place it in the proper dispenser. I was told by a beautiful C2 member that I was a better person then her, as she wouldn't go that far. I CANNOT HELP IT and am proud to have that much LOVE and RESPECT for our CHERISHED HOME. I have sent many stars while reading these profound words by C-2 members on this thread and thank you Dandelion for sharing this at this most tragic of times. I vow to join you in anyway I can to be of help in spreading this message on a Global front if you tell me what is needed. I believe I have been an inspiration by walking my talk, but it's time to do more. My Deepest Gratitude to you. Once again I say I am ashamed of my species with endless tears from my Heart.
Thank you for your link Terry. You always have shared such wisdom with us and I have never missed one you have shard. I thank all those who shared links and am viewing each one today. I'll begin with each one you have shared Dandelion.

so sad that Im truly afraid its too late unless something major happens

I was looking at a map of a city neighborhood today and looking at all streets made me sad..It was only one page but there are millions more like it and eventually all the beauty will be gone. its going to be all concrete and eventually will look like downtown detroit except where the 1% lives.

Wish I was alive millions of years ago where it was all land and a few people. Maybe I did and thats why I CRAVE it with an almost painful yearning..

Do what you can to bring a bit of nature to yourself. Is amazing what some stones, a little inside water fountain, and some houseplants will do to bring in the natural energy that you seek. If there is a park nearby or the ocean go to it an sit beside it or within it.

We can thank those earlier residents that at least fought and took into consideration the saving of some land for the people to get back into touch with nature. Central Park in NYC our National Parks are a blessing but not enough still but can one imagine not having them at all. So we must be very careful not to ruin what we still do have in this world. Once destroyed it is hard to bring back if not impossible for the human to do; if we destroy ourselves, our Mother will replenish, she has a lot of time to do so, we do not, we are the foolish ones.

Yes, it is too late for some already and some species are already gone forever. However, there is still much to be saving and we must keep trying, however we can. I appreciate those who make original videos as I can't with my lack of knowledge know how to make them. But they have offered those videos in hopes someone will receive a message that they are unaware of, or they support those of us who know this message and are trying to get it to others. Is what I am doing, forwarding this well made video to others in hopes more will join us in supporting what we all need to do to stop the destruction.

The American Indians did something that the average American does not do today.
They cared about the future of our country. Immediate gratification was not their goal.

Another great video. Those abusing the planet are all aware of this but carry on regardless. We all can do something, even if it's a little thing, because every little thing helps. Thank you Sheryl.

When my brother was about 8 or 9 yrs old, he needed to do a pollution project for school. My dad drove up the turnpike with my brother seated next to him. Between our home in NJ and NYC are industries with horrid smoke plumes streaming into the sky. My dad stopped on the side of the highway and began to take film of the pollution to add to Drew's project. A minute later, a cop pulled up and halted the filming. Don't recall if the film was taken, but even a school project was out of bounds.
Just a personal memory of a quiet quest put to rest. We know what the corporations are capable of hiding. We're all paying for it now. Why the lawmakers and many ceos don't see the urgency, I'll never know.

While this prohibiting of taking photos or filming, which has obviously been going on for some time now in this Country, is dismissed; the people get all up in arms when they read about other Countries forbidding filming. Too many fail to see what is going on in their own backyards yet condemn others for not noticing what is going on in their Countries.

Yes, my friend...that was 50 years ago. The proof of (what should be) crimes goes unpunished and unabated. Laws, which would not be necessary if the rules of nature abounded, are not close to limiting the toxins. Methane gas is the other issue with 60% of our food wasted, the animals on factory farms are abused to grow and produce to absurd extremes.
