Watch Genetic Roulette for Free (58 min) Until January 1, 2017

As you gather around with friends and family this holiday season, give them a gift that can change their lives. Use this link to watch the one hour version of Genetic Roulette—The Gamble of Our Lives together. This award-winning film by Jeffrey Smith has convinced more people to avoid eating GMOs than any other film, book, TV show, article, or anything else for that matter.
Send this link to those you love with heart-felt encouragement for them to watch it before it expires at midnight on January 1. This is, after all, the time to make New Year’s resolutions. And eating non-GMO and organic should be at the top of the list.
Immediately after Jeffrey debuted the film in Los Angeles, a woman approached him with her 16-year-old daughter. She said, “I have been unsuccessfully trying to get my daughter to change her diet for years. Now, after seeing your film, she’s enthusiastically ready to make the change.” 
Right behind them was a woman and her husband who said the same thing about him.
People ask us all the time, “How do I get my family members and close friends to switch to non-GMO?”
The answer is simple. Let us do it for you. Have them watch the film.
You’ve got a week to share this with as many people as you can to spread the word and help change the world.
Ready, set, go…
We wish you and yours a happy healthy holiday season and new year!
Safe eating,
The staff at IRT

I Wish For You - A Poem by M.N. Hopkins

I wish for you


I wish for you 


I wish for you

Loving kindness

I wish for you


I wish this for you

Until the day


You can wish this for yourself

Once done for yourself


You too can wish this for others

Until they too can wish this for themselves

And others


The time will arrive


Our wishes join together


Our wishes will join together

Our wishes 

For a better Life

A better community

A better world

Will be wished

Into a new

Into a vibrant

And a new way of living 


Will our good wishes be



Established within human community


Our everyday living

In what then 

Shall be

Our common 

Our normal

Our present time

We See A Future....A Discourse by M.N. Hopkins

We see a future full of confusions, misconceptions, and misinterpretations that will lead many to unpleasant surroundings and strife amongst each other.  Out of this chaos will emerge a renewed longing for freedom that will one day break the chains that tie Mankind to your tyrannical social orders.  This will come about in a not too pleasant way, but come about it will one day.  For the dream has many willing to sacrifice for the good of the many and the more equal distribution of power and resources.

The population in the future will decrease due to the manipulation of crops, thus poisoning man's food supply, the widespread use of drugs, with their detrimental effect on the human body, and the total breakdown of organized and planned action due to the weakening of will and the lack of inspiration and leadership within your human communities.

This will pass in time and from the ashes of your former communities will arise a renewal of leadership that will take the reigns and move Mankind closer to it's true nature and a tried and true means of the use of their natural power to create, to heal, and to conquer their childlike fears that have a hold on the release of fresh and creative energies that can and will be used for the development of new views of power and the implementation of Man relying on his own talents and skills that are guided by Soul, that is guided by God toward a new world order.  Not the one envisioned today by the tyrants that now rule, but a world that is truly ordered and planned and actuated by the inherent goodness that sits within Man's heart center.

No longer driven by corruption and greed and imbalance, but now driven by thoughtful planning through a balanced approach to the living of ones life.  No longer will greed prevail and now will we have the natural cycle of creation, transformation, transmutation, renewal and then a return to be used in another way through another device that is better suited for the reality of the times.

The past habit of creating out of non-realities that lead to a chaos and confusion will no longer exist.  Now will Humankind discuss and plan systems that are suited to the realities of that time and the environments that exist.

We will plan for the now and past and future will take care of themselves.  We will live in harmony and balance with the Earth and each other.
You will have no choice but to change your archaic methods that no longer work.  Education will be as it was intended to be.  A way to adapt and adjust one's thinking to the task at hand in the time and place at hand.  The Elders and those with true skills and knowledge will lead the way and all will prosper in this system.

Each generation will build upon the past and modify their structures according to current realities.  In this way, and effective means of production and services can be maintained and adjusted over time along with the cycles of Earth communities and the human communities in a syncretized manner.

A Message From Julian Assange on 7 December 2016

A Summary Of The Framing Of Julian Assange.


Cover letter by Julian Assange:
"Six years ago today, on 7 December 2010, I was handcuffed and locked into Wandsworth prison by order of a Swedish prosecutor, Marianne Ny. I had not and still have not been charged with an offence. The claimed grounds for my arrest and extradition without charge were so that Ny could question me. But it was not until six years later - three weeks ago - that I was questioned for the first time. I have decided to release my responses. But first, some background:
I am Australian. I am not Swedish. I do not speak Swedish. I have never resided in Sweden.
I am entirely innocent. I was already cleared of exactly this allegation in 2010 by the Chief Prosecutor of Stockholm, Eva Finne, who closed the case.
During the height of the Pentagon’s conflict with me the following month, the allegation was resurrected by the current prosecutor, Marianne Ny. It was immediately seized on to extinguish my freedom of movement and harm my reputation.
Without even bothering to take my statement, the Swedish Prosecution Authority broke its own rules and released my name to a tabloid newspaper. Prosecutor Ny went on to produce more than 40 press releases and press conferences about me. As a result, to this day more than half a million webpages falsely conflate my name with the word "rape".
For six years I called for my statement to be taken so that the ‘preliminary investigation’ might again be swiftly closed.
In February this year the United Nations found that Prosecutor Ny has caused Sweden and the UK to breach their international human rights obligations. The UN found that her actions are subjecting me to "cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment" and an unlawful deprivation of liberty which must immediately cease.
Finally, as a result, last month Marianne Ny sent a deputy and a policewoman to London to question me over two days, but – true to form – my Swedish lawyer was excluded from the room in yet another breach of my basic rights.
On 30 November the United Nations re-affirmed its decision in relation to my case. I am now releasing my statement to the public. The reason is simple. I want people to know the truth about how abusive this process has been. Furthermore, in the past the prosecution has fed partial information to tabloids that politically oppose me. It is better that my statement, which I am happy with, and which makes it obvious to all that I am innocent, sees the light in full.
Julian Assange
London, 7 December 2016"

Accept Not A Fallen State Of Mankind. - A Discourse by M.N. Hopkins

So, we see how this world limits one's dreams.  Forces are always at work to put a damper on doers of good deeds and right actions. A few of darkness project their own weakness out upon the lands and reward those who portray or you could also say,  betray there fellows.  If one appears to be strong or wise, he is discredited and made to look a fool. Every roadblock is put in the path of one who seeks to do good acts in your world and then, their failure is portrayed as due to their own weaknesses or inabilities. Yet, at the same time we find leaders in business, industry, and government without any talents or abilities in leadership, but they are portrayed as qualified, but their only true quality is their weakness and vulnerability and tendencies toward corruption. This way,  control is assured.

The drawback with this system is that real leadership and strength becomes non-existent in time and the world suffers from this cycle of inaction when it comes to the solutions of problems that humankind now faces in your world.  For truth is seen as a threat and anyone who seeks to distribute the truth is threatened with the ultimate goal of corruption. Now, you can clearly see how what is referred to as Evil in your world operates through men of little intelligence or wisdom and even weaker wills.

It is truly a deception of words that fuel the fires of your own destruction as a species.  Solutions? 

Solutions are already in you and others. Seek simple solutions. For truth is nothing more than the ability to see the reality of the problem and apply action that will correct or adjust events or circumstances to a workable outcome.

Now, we see you wish to know of future events. Mankind will face it's own inadequacies and come to decisions as to how the future will develop. For all have free will and all must choose their course to travel. We ask that Mankind look honestly at what they have become and determine what they will become, so that future generations have a working plan on how to build tomorrow.  Otherwise, life on Earth continues to be reactions to disasters that are due to their unwillingness to take responsibility and create consciously a tomorrow that holds within it the seeds for the development of Mankind as a conscious, dedicated being who actively seeks a balance within himself, so as to actuate a balance within the physical realm of experience.

So, dream of a world in which all participate in the decision making process using information that is honestly and equitably distributed amongst your kind. Seek visions of a joyous tomorrow and a joyous tomorrow will take form in time.  Discard the old and actively create the new systems of government, commerce, and everyday reality that will allow for individual development as well as cultural or group development.

This is a possibility--one of many available to the human imagination. First, one must imagine the possibility before actively setting about to do the work of bringing the mental pictures into physical reality.

Accept Not A Fallen State Of Mankind - Accept not a fallen state for Mankind.  Pick each other up from the mire and continue with the goal of human evolution and enlightenment.

Think Not Upon All The Wrongs And Injustices Of Men - A Discourse by M.N. Hopkins

Think not upon all the wrongs and injustices of men, rather think upon a future in which all co-operate and seek the greatest good for the greatest number.  Hold a vision that is joyous and life giving and share it so that others can come to realize that such a joyous existence is a possibility within the physical realm of existence.  Be not discouraged,  for the gift of faith returns.  A stronger more resilient faith that will help others know of their own deep and personal relationship to their own Soul.  Once this connection is re-established,  many will touch upon and benefit from an inner wisdom and strength, which is inherent to all.

Origin of Loneliness - A Quotation from Carl G. Jung


“Loneliness does not come from having no people about one, but from being unable to communicate the things that seem important to oneself, or from holding certain views which others find inadmissible.”

An Important Message from Keeper of Sacred White Buffalo Calf Pipe

Important Message from Keeper of Sacred White Buffalo Calf Pipe

Four Worlds International Institute,     5 November 2016

I, Chief Arvol Looking Horse, of the Lakota, Dakota, and Nakota Nations, ask you to understand an Indigenous perspective on what has happened in America, what we call "Turtle Island." My words seek to unite the global community through a message from our sacred ceremonies to unite spiritually, each in our ways of beliefs in the Creator.

We have been warned from ancient prophecies of these times we live in today, but have also been given a vital message about a solution to turn these terrible times.
To understand the depth of this message, you must recognize the importance of Sacred Sites and realize the interconnectedness of what is happening today, in the reflection of the continued massacres that are occurring on other lands and our own Americas.
I have been learning about these important issues since the age of 12 when I received the Sacred White Buffalo Calf Pipe Bundle and its teachings. Our people have strived to protect Sacred Sites from the beginning of time. These places have been violated for centuries and have brought us to the predicament that we are in at the global level.
Look around you. Our Mother Earth is very ill from these violations, and we are on the brink of destroying the possibility of a healthy and nurturing survival for generations to come, our children's children.
Our ancestors have been trying to protect our Sacred Site called the Sacred Black Hills of South Dakota, "Heart of Everything That Is," from continued violations. Our ancestors never saw a satellite view of this site, but now that those pictures are available, we see that it is in the shape of a heart and, when fast-forwarded, it looks like a heart pumping.
The Diné have been protecting Big Mountain, calling it the liver of the earth, and we are suffering and going to suffer more from the extraction of the coal there and the poisoning processes used in doing so.
The Aborigines have warned of the contaminating effects of global warming on the Coral Reefs, which they see as Mother Earth's blood purifier.
The indigenous people of the rainforest say that the rainforests are the lungs of the planet and need protection.
The Gwich'in Nation in Alaska has had to face oil drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge coastal plain, also known to the Gwich'in as "Where life begins."
The coastal plain is the birthplace of many life forms of the animal nations. The death of these animal nations will destroy indigenous nations in this territory.
As these destructive developments continue all over the world, we will witness much more extinct animal, plant, and human nations, because of humankind's misuse of power and their lack of understanding of the "balance of life."
The Indigenous people warn that these negative developments will cause havoc globally. There are many, many more original teachings and knowledge about Mother Earth's Sacred Sites, her chakras, and connections to our spirit that will surely affect our future generations.
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. This Prophecy was hard to believe! The water was plentiful, pure,  full of energy, nutrition, and spirit. Today we have to buy clean water, and even then the nutritional minerals have been taken out; it's just clear 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.
Attacking nations and using more resources to carry out destruction in the name of peace is not the answer! We need to understand how all these decisions affect the global nation; we will not be immune to its repercussions. Allowing continual contamination of our food and land is affecting the way we think.
A "disease of the mind" has set in world leaders and many members of our global community, with their belief that a solution of retaliation and destruction of peoples will bring peace.
In our Prophecies it is told that we are now at the crossroads: Either unites spiritually as a global nation or faced with chaos, disasters, diseases, and tears from our relatives' eyes.
We are the only species that is destroying the source of life, meaning Mother Earth, in the name of power, mineral resources, and ownership of land. Using chemicals and methods of warfare that are doing irreversible damage, as Mother Earth is becoming tired and cannot sustain any more impacts of war.
I ask you to join me in this endeavor. Our vision is for the peoples of all continents, regardless of their beliefs in the Creator, to come together as one at their Sacred Sites to pray and meditate and commune with one another, thus promoting an energy shift to heal our Mother Earth and achieve a universal consciousness toward attaining Peace.
As each day passes, I ask all nations to begin a global effort and remember to give thanks for the pure food that has been gifted to us by our Mother Earth, so the nutritional energy of medicine can be guided to heal our minds and spirits.
This new millennium will usher in an age of harmony, or it will bring the end of life as we know it. Starvation, war, and toxic waste have been the hallmark of the vast myth of progress and development that ruled the last millennium.
To us, as caretakers of the heart of Mother Earth falls the responsibility of turning back the powers of destruction. You are the one who must decide.
You alone – and only you – can make this crucial choice, to walk in honor or to dishonor your relatives. On your decision depends the fate of the entire World.
Each of us is put here in this time and this place to personally decide the future of humankind.
Did you think the Creator would create unnecessary people in a time of such terrible danger?
Know that you are essential to this world. Understand both the blessing and the burden of that. You are desperately needed to save the soul of this world. Did you think you were put here for something less? In a Sacred Hoop of Life, there is no beginning and no ending.

Chief Arvol Looking Horse is the author of White Buffalo Teachings. A tireless advocate of maintaining traditional spiritual practices, Chief Looking Horse is a member of Big Foot Riders, which memorializes the massacre of Big Foot's band at Wounded Knee.
