We Are Part of the Earth – A Story by Oren Lyons

Waking Times

Oren Lyons, a Native American Faithkeeper of the Turtle Clan, and a member of the Onondoga Nation Council of Chiefs of the Six Nations of the Iroquois Confederacy (the Haudenosaunee), recites the poignant story of how after graduating college he was reminded of the importance of his connection to the Earth by his uncle and Council Chief.

In this beautiful story, Oren is reminded of the similarities between men and trees, and is hit hard with the realization that the most important wisdom often reflects the simplest and most basic concepts about the nature of life.

Please enjoy and share this inspiring tale with you friends and loved ones.
