Seeds of Truth~ I am sowing

Our Sweetcorn is almost ready for harvesting in another couple of weeks , as the cobs are filling out nicely,.. Here is me a little windswept among the corn. You can see how high it now is.   Hello everyone!

I felt like I was dancing in the wind as the corn swayed back and forth reminding me of the Native American Indian’s Corn Dance Native ceremonies help people to remember their responsibilities to nature around them and to the Universe. 

In Australia the Aboriginal people speak of ‘Dreaming’ and again these stories are passed down word of mouth through generations. When Western science meets the stories of the indigenous peoples of both cultures, the Western approach fails to understand that native stories are stories of origin, which are a creative interpretation of the experiences of peoples within places, which are interwoven with metaphoric meaning.

We tend to not understand, because many refuse to open their minds as to any other possibilities than their own meanings of man’s origin. It is time we opened our Minds again to the Truth of what is happening in our world.

To the Native everything is considered to be “alive”, and imbued with ‘Spirit Energy’ even the pebble has its own form and energy. And everything is interrelated to everything around us.  They understand the relationship of Time and Space between living and none living things. Understanding not only the physical, but the psychological and Spiritual , which involves ‘Dreams’,‘Visions’ and that ‘Knowing’. And they Know that life is a circle of learning. And to help remember and create harmony, between Earth, Sky, and its peoples, many ceremonies and  blessings of gratitude took place and one of these is the Corn Dance .. 

Photobucket

 

The Corn Dance rituals were performed at particular times of the year during various growing cycles, bringing their community together to celebrate and remember the sacredness of Corn and all plant life upon which they depended.. In which we all depend upon today..  The indigenous not only expressed the relationship between plant and animal world, but they built great canals.. The Hohokam people built these canals in the Tuscan Valley, long before the arrival of Europeans. The Hohokam systems were able to supply the irrigation needs of over fourteen thousand acres of cropland.   They understood agriculture and how to maintain key plants such as corn. The ceremony associated with Corn showed the community how important it was for all to work together in order for survival. Native People loved their gardens and grew Corn, Tobacco Aramanth and Quinoa and were spiritually symbolic of  Native myths and cosmologies.

The Following Story is of the Tuscarora Corn Spirit.

In a time long ago, in a village that was well known for its plentiful corn harvest, became negligent of respecting the Corn Spirit. The people had become so used to the bountiful harvests they took them for granted. And they let the weeds grow  in their gardens, and didn’t store their seeds correctly, nor did they give thanks for their harvest to the Corn Spirit.

They soon found that the mice ate the Corn they had carelessly stored. So the men began to hunt, but found they could find no game, and so soon the people began to starve.

There was only one man who kept the covenant of respect to the Corn Spirit, his name was Dayohagwenda , and his garden produced rich harvests of corn.  One day when Dayohagwenda was picking herbs, he came upon an old man dressed in rags and weeping. He asked the old man what was wrong. The old man said.” Your people have forgotten me, I am the Corn Spirit and I will soon die”

Dayohagwenda returned to his village and told them that the Corn Spirit would soon die if they didn’t return to their ways of honouring him, through careful planting, weeding and harvesting and storing their corn. So they immediately began to do this and their corn once again thrived in abundance, as they gave thanks to the Corn Spirit for blessing their food..

  Morden Native peoples and farmers are today under threat by huge corporations that are genetically altering seeds  This move is to gain control over the Worlds Food supplies.. You can see one such Farmers Fight here….. And Here  and how another 75 year old farmer lost his fight in the high court… HERE   Below is an interesting Fact on some of todays Sweetcorn on the cob..This Genetically Modified Corn modified by Monsanto which has the substance Bt-Toxin, This toxin is a pesticide designed to break down the stomach of insects eating the crops.  Now this  Dangerous Toxin has been found in the blood of Pregnant Women  Listen to this Two minute Video which is informing us of its sale as Corn on the cob in Walmart which is Asada here in the UK.. 

To see what Bt-Toxin has done in India to the Cotton Crops which this Toxin is in, then I urge you to look at this Video Below just over 3 minutes long which will make you THINK  what effects Monsanto is having around the world.. Here in India the farmers and pickers of the crops are suffering flu like symptoms and are experiencing sores and itching and their animals are dying from eating the crops after harvest.. And where farmers who have bought the seeds and failed crops and lost their herds the Suicide rate among farmers is extremely high as they can not pay back their debts.

  If we do not start and open our eyes now to the Seeds of Truth there will be no more seeds to sow left worth sowing… Please look at what you are Eating, and look at your processed Corn products. In fact please Look into the facts for yourselves .. Thank you for reading Sue ~Dreamwalker

    GMO is a great threat for so many reasons. I think that people are becoming more and more aware of this. Here in Europe, in most countries they are either banned or are forced to mention GMO on the products, so people can choose.
    Thank you, Sue, for a great post, once again!

I see so many of their pesticides on the market and some people are still very nieve when it comes to what toxins are in them…. And thank you Marina big waves back at you 🙂

    Sue, I have heard of the problems India is experiencing it is so sad and Monsanto should be held responsible to pay the families when their crops fail, it would be a drop in the bucket for them to compensate those who have lost so much.

    I heard about the corn with 6 different organisms we are going to be seeing such illnesses from eating this corn.

    That is a wonderful picture of you in the corn field. Our corn is so short but starting to form the ears. I know we only have enough for a meal for all who helped in the gardens but it will be a wonderful day to share it when it is ready.

      Compensation is only it seems a one way streak when its Farmers who are fined in courts as the seeds cross-contaminate their seeds and then they have to pay Monsanto … Crazy! and So So Wrong..

      Hi Sheila, Many thanks for your lovely visit and comment, and yes many more are now aware, but we still are not solving the problems they are creating for our future as it seems they have a monopoly on Seeds and have much influence in higher circles which seems they are a law unto themselves.. And I agree the people in India should be given compensation for their suffering and lost crops and animals, but like anything else, the little hard-working man can not fight the Big corporate giants without help and more money for lawyers which they don’t have. Big hugs back xx

The homes and protests and the voices of the little people who put governments in Power are no longer needed…. When Money Talks, It Talks BIG to those who pass the laws and whose pockets it lines…. ( Con-science ) works as a two way word.. Conscience.. or as you have quite rightly detected.. a CON… with Science Backing… Great comment David, thank you x

    Good post Sue! Got my mind wandering as I read your words about how we have so conveniently forgotten that as humans we are indeed still dependent on Mother nature and our surroundings. That without clean air and water…we may be lost…and that respect of the food that we grow is so important because it is because of them that we are living! The ancients have always had it right, haven’t they? And those who are considered undeveloped…they know how we are but cells in a huge body and like the cells in a human body each variety of cells is vital for the functioning of itself and the whole as well!
    What old knowledge knew of the life force within every single thing on earth, science now agrees! Everything is filled with energy…every thing has atoms making them up and each vibrates with energy!
    Sometimes I wish that people who deal with science can get down their high horses and just open their minds a little more!

Being well fed or full of health is not in the best interests of some major global organisations as you would agree.. But you are aware too of the WHOLE of what we are, and I would imagine from your own perspective Shree you could at times get greatly frustrated as you try to heal what we as humans do to ourselves.. And yet you understand so much more of how Mind and Body connect… Thank you for your indepth comment Shree x

    I wasn’t going to write, because i don’t know much GM foods but i do know that potato, wheat and rice for instance has been modified to give higher yields since the second world war. It was to stop nations from starving. It was needed then and as it gone too far now? Maybe it as, but what will happen if they suddenly withdrew the modified seeds, how much of the crops would die and then the people would starve. Why? Because we no longer know how to crow crops the old way. We no longer grow our own on the bit of garden that we have or the allotment we are hiring.

      I do not know exactly when it started Beverley, you can find some history Here
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genetically_modified_food
      But Farmers got along quite nicely before Monsanto and in fact many have lost their farms and lively hoods especially in the USA where there own seed Banks were contaminated by GMO crops and Monsanto took them to court.

      Many around our world today still starve… and do I see Monsanto helping to feed the world? No I see them reaping only profit from producing seeds which need their pesticides which make them more profit… Its shameful.. Each time we add it to the ground it gets more saturated with toxins.. which in turn find there way to the water table.. rivers, oceans, drinking water..

      If we do not alter our ways of being, in the future we may all be digging our little patches of lawn to plant food as a necessity… We only have to now look Beverley at the soaring price of fresh produce to see why many are buying processed and fast foods which often contain ingredients which is bad for our health… Learning to Grow our own food wouldn’t do us any harm…
      Good to hear from you again and I hope you have now sorted your attic and created your sacred space and are enjoying some Peace inbetween your Grandchildren 🙂

        It definitely began during the war years. However those who are rich get richer and those who are poor go without. That not just person by person but by whole countries. There is enough food in the world to feed everyone but large supermarkets would rather throw it in the bin than give it away to those in need. The Bradford food banks are being inundated for requests for food this summer as parents struggle not only to feed their children but also to pay the added taxes put on by rich, greedy governments. Sometimes we allow our eyes to roam far and wide when there are those who are starving right in front of us.
        As for fast foods, it is all about getting rich. However you cannot blame the government for what people eat, that’s individual choice. You can afford to eat healthy if you chose to do so and buy healthy food instead of quick and fast. It is because people are becoming idle and cannot be bothered to cook. Okay you may not be able to buy the expensive organic range all the time but people can eat healthier than most do. Yes, the government has allowed fast food outlets to flourish but it never forced anyone to eat in them. In fact if I allow my mind to roam round Bradford city centre there is only two places I can think of where you can buy food, which is not of the fast food variety.
        I wrote a blog about all my house clearing this last week, we are getting there slowly. I am now looking at my bookcases and thinking do I really need those books or that book case? Watch this space and see 🙂

          Yes I agree Beverley, we only need to look closer to home to see how standards of living are declining, and as you rightly say, the amounts of Food waste could feed many a starving mouth.
          But my point was that this corporation is using GMO saying it is going to help feed the world, when in fact that is not the case, You only have to read about India to see its costs to Farmers… And it will be in the generations to come when we will see the results of its affects upon our health.

          Our Towns are gradually closing down, I do not know about Bradford Beverley, but it seems every week another shop is boarded up as another retailer bites the dust…
          We will ALL have to take stock in a while and re-evaluate how we are going to live… because I know one thing, We cannot carry on the same path. We have to look at becoming more Self-Sufficient in years to come…

            Hi Sue, I just love the way you see things and you are right GM foods could feed starving nations but we don’t really need them, we just need to learn to share what we have.

            Yes in years to come we will have to be more self sufficient. And yes each weeks shops are closing, even those that have been there for over 100 years. Life is going crazy and all people think about is money and how to spend it and how fast. Then they just want more and more to do the same thing with. Not many people think about how they could share a little of what they have to help other and we all can.

In human beings effort to have better crops and more crops (in their own inadequate ways) they still are causing so much suffering. History keeps repeating itself, as they say, to the detriment of humanity. In any case, you and your husband must have worked very hard and it shows. Oh, an aside. I have always admired how you have made your site so uniquely your own in what you do and I have finally begun to form some small ideas for my own…not nearly so bold…but find I need to do what is best for me.
