Another Aspect of Good Water

by Jennifer Greene, Water Research Institute of Blue Hill, ME

This summer Jennifer is hosting a conference at the Water Research Institute, “Steps Towards Discovering the Intrinsic Nature of Water” with Wolfram Schwenk and David Auerbach – July 31 – August 5, 2011, download the brochure HERE.

Preamble:

The following article presents an unusual perspective on water. This perspective is gaining interest from world water policymakers from UNESCO to the World Water Council. How we conceptualize water affects how we manage it. This is central to the industrial world/indigenous world conflicts and the issues around privatization/public water supplies.

Background:

In municipalities all over the US there are unsung heroes and heroines in the environmental movement. They are largely unknown to the populous, they do their work day in and day out, regardless of the season, holidays, weekends; they serve a constant flow that arises out of simply being citizens of life. They are often maligned, for their work is a ‘dirty job”. Their place of work is the last stop for an unending flow of water, where a necessary pause is the stopgap against environmental disaster that the earth and humanity experiences when this is not in place.

Flordemayo’s Vision of The Golden Child

by Flordemayo, The International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers

The Golden Child

I would like to share the message of “The Golden Child”. I was at a gathering in March of 2010 and from my bed I felt the presence of someone coming into my room.

The Cosmic Voice called me –– “FLORDEMAYO”–– I was sitting in a lotus position and saw a Holy One floating, or gliding into my room. He was wearing a red robe, red, like the color of a watermelon, and he said, “I have a gift for you.”

I extended my arms and he placed an Egg that was made of Earth. It was quite big and weighed nearly 14 pounds. I held this Egg on my lap, and I started to chant, “You are Love. There is nothing but Love. Love is all there is.” Continue reading
