Prayer vs. Oil
In the ongoing wake of the Deepwater Horizon oil drilling catastrophe the world is dismayed by the destructive tendencies of modern human beings. With what seems to be a never-ending nightmare secreted into our oceans, communities are grouping together to help solve this crisis and grieve its disastrous impact.
A country-wide vigil is scheduled by MoveOn.org for tomorrow night, June 8th. Please click here to find the vigil nearest you. For those in the NYC area, there is one being held in Brooklyn, NY at Garfield Place and Prospect Park West. This is a call to everyone to band together our collective hearts and minds to help heal the wound we have inflicted upon our planet.
Chief Arvol Looking Horse has spoken out against the these destructive tendencies and the mistakes that we have made, and asks for the spiritual leaders and all of humanity to unite together in prayer for the sake of our Grandmother Earth so that we do not continue in making mistakes out of our addictive behavior in the destruction of our ecosystem. He asks us to remember and use June 21st, World Peace and Prayer Day/Honoring Sacred Sites day, to unite together as human beings intimately connected to all life and pray for the Earth, ecosystems, and all life we have afflicted.
So on June 8th and June 21st, let us collectively merge our consciousness towards evolving our behavior away from these destructive tendencies and step forward to a new level of responsibility and with the understanding of the interconnectedness of all life.
