Indigenous ways of being often include the wisdom of a matriarch. In the first post below, about peace and chocolate in Columbia, a matriarch paints the story of her people (see the documentary) and explains their peaceful actions as a community amidst extreme violence.
From the simplicity of farming the land comes a way of peace. . .
Archangel Michael in my first reading with him, through Linda Dillon, channel for the Council of Love, November 29th, 2011, told me it was time for the Divine Feminine to rise to help create peace on Earth. Archangel Gabrielle told me the same thing – and even that the Mother asked him – Gabriel to emanate as Gabrielle – her.
On the other hand, the avocado farming in Mexico started out as a way of peace but has had incredible set backs. . . drugs, guns and violence. . . Time for change. . .
Cooperation and Chocolate:
The Story of a Colombian Community’s
Quest for Peace
By Agostino Petroni, Yes Magazine, January 14, 2021
When it’s time for harvest, Germán Graciano Posso, a 38-year-old Colombian farmer, leaves his village, La Florencita, with a group of co-workers and heads into the hills where the cacao trees grow surrounded by a lush rainforest.
Cacao pods the size of giant lemons hang off the trees’ branches: They come in various colors—green, red, and purple—but tend to turn yellow when they ripen.
Posso harvests the fruits by hand, cracks them open with a machete, and collects the grape-sized seeds, which are covered in a white, squishy casing.
Then he places the seeds in a wooden box where the casing undergoes a process of fermentation. Finally, Posso spreads out the seeds on a flat surface to dry in the sun.
After eight days of drying, they will be ready to become chocolate.
This might seem a common agronomic practice, no different from the one conducted by other cacao growers worldwide, yet it carries a greater significance in this northwestern corner of Colombia.
