Chief Phil Lane: Indigenous Water Wisdom

By UPLIFT on Friday March 17th, 2017

How the Attributes of Water Reflect Human Qualities

Indigenous cultures around the world have always regarded water as sacred. Chief Phil Lane Jr., believes the western world is now also finally awakening to the sacredness of water. He shares with us the unique attributes of water, which reflect qualities of human nature and that are greatly needed in the world at this time. “Water is Life, Water is Sacred, Water is Medicine”

The hurt of one is the hurt of all and the destruction of our drinking water, wherever it is on mother earth, is a destruction of water for all of us and for all life.

Chief Phil Lane urges us all to come together to protect water resources. “We need to be able to fully understand truly, the spiritual reality, that we are all members of one human family.”

In this episode, Chief Phil Lane shares a powerful message about our relationship with water, and how the very attributes of this precious living resource have much to teach us about living more harmoniously on the planet. And UPLIFT’s Vanessa Hill brings hope with positive news about water from around the globe.
