Summer Solstice-World Peace Day-June 21, 2014

June 21, 2014 is Summer Solstice or World Peace Day, a day to celebrate the Earth and the Awakener or the return of the Light.

Chief Arvol Looking Horse, 19th Generation Keeper of the Sacred White Buffalo Piper has put out a call for World Peace Day prayers and meditations.

Chief Arvol Looking Horse said water one day that water be more valuable than gold.

“There needs to be a fast move toward other forms of energy that are safe  for  all Nations upon Mother Earth. We need to understand the types of minds that are  continuing to destroy the spirit of our whole global community. Unless we do   this, the powers of destruction will overwhelm us. Our Ancestors foretold that  water would someday be for sale. Back then, this was hard to believe, since the  water was so plentiful, so pure, and so full of energy, nutrition, and spirit.”

CNN Money agrees with Chief Arvol Looking Horse that water is the new gold in a recent story, and the Chairman of Nestle Food Peter Brabeck  said that water is not a human right.

Furthermore Chief Arvol Looking Horse said:

“Today we have to buy pure water, and even then the nutritional minerals have  been taken out; it’s just empty liquid. Someday water will be like gold,  too  expensive to afford.

Not everyone will have the right to drink safe water. We fail to appreciate and  honor our Sacred Sites, ripping out the minerals and gifts that lay underneath  them as if Mother Earth were simply a resource, instead of the Source of Life  itself.”
