A Call for a Coalition of the Just
We have the rightful cause, we have the willingness and we finally have the tools with which to course correct from the perilous path the world is currently being led down.
What we lack is the organizational superstructure to sufficiently amplify the will of the people through the multitude of existing organizations.
In other words, in order to achieve the kinds of reforms now demanded by the socio-ecological… Continue

Many of us sense that events of great global significance are approaching. Those of us not caught up in the fantasy world of GovCorp. know that humanity is faced with global predicaments of many kinds and that a crossroads of sorts is fast approaching.
It goes by many names such as, WorldShift, The Apocalypse, 2012-Mayan Calendar phenomena, "End of the World",Tipping point, The Shift, Ascencion, New Age and The Singularity or as in the… Continue

Pain and suffering are always inevitable for a large intelligence
and a deep heart. The really great men must, I think,
have great sadness on earth.

(This is a two-part blog. The first outlines the historical/conceptual background for the imminent shift to a new world order; and an essential one…..if, that is, it is survival that humanity still desires. The second identifies the three main scourges - namely nationalism, capitalism and the procurement/ingestion of flesh - which currently inhibit such a shift, and then presents analyses why this is indeed so.)
From Dr. E. Laszlo’s new book, WorldShift 2012 we learn that humanity… Continue

Society cannot exist without inequality of fortunes
and the inequality of fortunes could not subsist
without religion. Whenever a half-starved person
is near another who is glutted, it is impossible
to reconcile the difference if there is not an
authority who tells him to.

-- reformers in the morning, conservatives at night.
Reform is affirmative, conservatism is negative;
conservatism goes for comfort, reform for truth.

writer and philosopher (1803-1882)

Lately it seems many of our businesses aren't genuinely doing the jobs for which they were chartered. For example, our insurance companies aren't covering those of us who may need to file a claim; they're only selecting those customers who aren't likely to use their services. Our pharmaceutical companies likewise aren't curing us of disease; they're merely treating our symptoms of illness for years and years. Neither are our banks making it easier for us to save money; they're actually making… Continue

I used to think that people who regarded everyone benignly
were a mite simple or oblivious or just plain lax --
until I tried it myself.
Then I realized that they made it only look easy.
Even the Berditchever Rebbe, revered as a man
who could strike a rock and bring forth a stream,
was continually honing his intentions.
"Until I remove the thread of hatred from my heart,"
he said of his daily meditations,
"I am, in my own eyes, as if I did not… Continue

A very well prepared little animation about the daily morning habit, drinking a latte. I believe this is a perfect way to raise awarness and diminish the ignorance about climate change such as written in my previous post about why we are not more active in killing certain habits. Made by the WWF.

Good and evil grow up together and are bound in
an equilibrium that cannot be sundered.
The most we can do is try to tilt the equilibrium
toward the good.
