Calling the Peoples of Earth

Written by FaithRMichaels
They sit in little kingdoms
Created with imaginary lines drawn across paper maps..
Markers placed upon the Earth Mother
little colored pieces of cloth
symbols of imaginary Kingdoms and Countries
flap in Creations breezes.

Afraid self important people sitting in royal houses
eating fine food
drinking fine wines and liquors
 blustering their arrogance
playing like little children
king of the hill.

 Imaginary Rulers of pretend Kingdoms
In the name of God, King, Country
rattling sabers
muttering threats of retaliation
firing their destructive toys

 Death is what they bring
Death is what they teach
horror is their dream
terror their tool
fear the weapon of choice
Control their game

Their nightmare established
 that they may feel safe
Teaching traditions of isolation ,
False concepts
Contaminating all like a bad virus

 People of Earth tolling in despair
Praying to the Gods and Goddesses created
for assistance
asking for deliverance
not understanding that they are the deliverance
they have been waiting on

It is time now
We the People Of Mother Earth
WE the children of Earth
Children of Life
Do not require this illusion anymore
Cast off your shackles of fear

   Listen up  Pretend leaders
We abolish your imaginary authority..
 without us you are powerless
It is time now
Warriors of Earth

Take notice ye who would rule the world
Ye are naught but fearful children
playing with dangerous toys
playing at being rulers of imaginary kingdoms


Walela Circle of Light

I'm not right
you're not wrong
We both know what this love
of ours is built upon
We are shadows
tiny sparrows
safe inside
clear blue sky
of another storm
moving in and out of time
In and out of the circle of life.

We are children of the angels
Keepers of the fire
We are children of the angels
Reaching for the light
We are not strangers
we are all brothers
I know we came here to love each other
Here, in the circle of life.

Each one thinks he
has an answer
Each one believes that he can see
the way, the only one
truth lies waiting
was always waiting
like a love
peaceful dove
right there inside your soul
from another place and time
Moving into the circle of light.


The lessons of the Trees

Written By FaithRMichaels

I told someone that this being would be taking a walk to listen to the trees.

The beautiful Standing Ones have much to say if one listens

They whisper their life story in the wind.

Some are very very old

many here are young by tree age

The Standing Ones know nothing of time as we understand it

They understand existence.

The Standing Ones understand resilience

They understand going with the flow

They teach about nowness, hereness, Isness

For this is what is experienced

When this being connects with the Standing Ones an eternal peace flows from them to me

In humility I listen

humbled by an ancient understanding

Being is all there is

through storms,through drought,through floods,winters,spring summer fall

The Standing Ones simply are..

The heart hears them say

HUUUUU they whisper with the voice of the wind

I am.... Being

This is the lesson from my relatives today.


Be The Rainbow

From Elders speak

By Carrie

Submitted by Carol Spirit Dove Henderson

What you resist is given strength by your resistance. What you fear is given form through your fear. What you accept with grace as simply being what it is can become an opening door into new worlds.

You may fear a future event, but what you fear is not truly that event, but rather the consequences you believe will flow from it. The event you fear may in fact happen. But the consequences of the event, which are the true root of your fear, are completely unknown and completely malleable.

And even the most feared consequences, if they were actually to come, would not be what you think. It is only resistance and judgment that make something unbearable. Within every moment, no matter what the circumstances, there is grace, there is beauty and wonder, and there is love. And within the deepest presence of each moment, there is always peace.

Open, open. Drop the walls of resistance and fear. Drop the blinders that are keeping you from seeing what is all around you, right now. Turn your head. Look up. Look down. See the world through clear eyes. Feel the love that flows in, around and within you. Feel the help and love that surround you like a warm blanket. Go deep within and listen to the river of love and peace that always flows through the center of your heart and through all that is, right now.

Open, open and connect with what is. And in the next moment, connect with what is then. And on and on through the moments of your life. Be deeply present. Inhabit this place of power, the only place where action is possible, the only place where anything is possible, this moment, right now.

Feel the energy in your body; feel its tingling aliveness. Feel the clarity of your mind in this moment. See the doors and windows flying open and feel the wind blowing through, clearing away the fear, the judgment, the doubt.

And now, look down at your feet. See that you are standing on fertile ground and little shoots of grass are pushing up through the soil all around you. Millions and millions of possibilities, growing and pushing toward the sun of faith, watered by the gentle rain of love. And now lift your face to that sun and see the rainbow that forms in the gentle shower of love that is always there. You are that rainbow. You are that mixture of sun and rain that makes up life. You are the beauty that forms when everything is shining with what it actually is, when you allow yourself simply to be.

Stand now within that sun, that rain. Be the rainbow of peace and beauty, joy and love. And declare yourself to the world, right now, in this moment, exactly as you are, exactly as all is: I am.


We Do Not Beg

Written by

Sooo many people believe that prayer is about begging a divine Deity to acquiesce to the request being made.Many Believe it is about bargaining like unto this....I will be really good,I promise to serve if you just grant this request... or sacrifice....Prayer is not about begging,or bargaining it is not about bribery.

If something happens that is contrary to the request in prayer being asked then people are bewildered or angry.
Sometimes they say there is no GOD! He ,She,It did not answer my prayers!!


Prayer is about coming into agreement or harmonic resonance with Creation,with Spirit,or the life force, whatever you wish to call the unifying force.
You ,I ,and all of Creation is Spirit manifesting itself into life forms for experience. .

Prayer is a time for listening for guidance.
It is a time of connection,renewal,balance, and direction.
It is a time of recieving so that your cup may be filled.
It is not a time to beg or bargain for favors.
It is a time for opening up to the wisdom within yourself.
It is a time of contemplation on what is the wisest choice.
It is a time to say not mine but thy will be done.

We are listening for the truth or the heart of the Matter.
It is a time to receive the Blessings from the Holy so that you can walk in a more profound way of being.
It is a time for grace,a time for healing ,THAT is what prayer is for.
It is the time when you realize the sacredness and your connection with this source of all life.
It is time for you to realise how precious you are,how beautiful you are and how empowered you can be from these connections ...these moments of prayer.
I do not care how you pray or what name term you choose to call this praying...there is only ONE Creator no matter by what name you choose to give this Life force and LOVE IS ALL!


Healing the World

The 13 Indigenous Grand-Mothers have a mission.

Their Mission is to bring healing ,wisdom,and real Earth time solutions to the problems facing the world today. They have been called to gather the four directions, to show us all by example the ancient ways . The GrandMothers are teaching the sacred knowledge regarding the connectedness of all living things. Like a pebble in a pond the ripples of what they are being, are reaching out and creating a resonance within the heart of all life.

The Earth Mother is calling us to grow with her as she prepares to move to the next level.

Part of the Being State of the next level is self responsibility.

We ...the children of the Earth have existed upon this planet in a reacting mode only untill now.
It is time to grow up. Time to be responsible stewards and Co-Creators.

Time to be what we truly are.

What are we?

We are a divine spark of Creation with consciousness and that consciousness is what allows us to be Conscious co creators with life.

I heard the question spoken. "how do we maintain being connected?"

This question was asked when I spoke within the group of 8 that was created after the GrandMothers finished speaking. The GrandMothers had addressed the subject of Gulf Oil and polluted waters in the Gulf at the end of the conference.

My answer to that question was and is this: Just see it done. Bless it... May the Blessings Be.
Then walk the talk ... The key to Consciousness is action. In other words if you want to walk in consciousness as an aware Co-Creator two things must occur.

The first action is an inner one..ceremony,contemplation, connecting with the source, see it done, not how it is done, just see it done, Blessing it.

The second action is a physical one to manifest it here within the Earth world.
Do not be attached to the outcome. Your attachment to a specific outcome will create resistance,which will be in the way and limiting the Divine to a certain expression of being.

Just know it is done and know it will be manifested for the highest good of all.

One example of that action in the physical could be calling your reps in Washington, or joining and assisting within a group that is working to bring clean water and restore balance to our Mother.
Perhaps you would work in your community on some level to restore the balance of Nature within your sphere of influence or teach the young ones etc.

A Blessing is a powerful thing for it connects one with the source from the heart which is the connection to Soul...the center of creation manifestation within us.

We do not have a Soul ...We ARE Soul..That is what we truly are.

We are learning what we as Soul can do and what our purpose as conscious beings is.

Our purpose is to become conscious Co-Creators with and of the Divine. by being a wider channel for Spiritual expression here within the Earth world and throughout ALL worlds.

All is One...One is All and it is Life.

The Mother is Calling for she is responding to the call within herself that is a resonance of the Call of All Life everywhere with in ALL the worlds of Spirit to evolve. She is singing the love,the song of Life, so that you may know how much you are loved and how powerful you are as a loved being when you love ALL of the expressions of who you truly are.

Walk in Certainty of that knowing while singing that song of life as you resonate with it within you ,out into the world through your own uniqueness of expression.

This evolution expresses itself within as a beautiful loving awareness and without by the expressing of that awareness in your everydayness, which in turn brings more abundant life, love and grace manifesting into the worlds.

May The Blessings Be


Dancing in the Dawn on the Good Red Road

By Faith-R-Michaels

The outer illusion shatters
pieces of the false fall away
In shards that vanish
with the rays of the dawn
emerging from the morning fire
The Phoenix is reborn
With the smell of sweet smudge
lingering in the dawn air

some lay claim that the Sun was the object of worship for the ancient tribes.
No; it was the significance of the sun rising bringing light back into the world,overcoming the dark,
that was honored.
I danced in the dawn this morning
Universal drum
World song,
My song,
Hu song
a very powerful moment.
The moon was on the set but still in the sky.
the dawn light rising in the east
as hundreds of birds songs joined with the song of life and me
greeting the dawn light..
Powerful energies ebb and flow.
there is oneness.


Building Bridges, Warriors of good heart

By Nicholas DeVincenzo

On an average day at work I will drive over 200 miles, now if I were to drive straight up I would be in deep space. I would be without air to breath, and the warmth of the sun would not have been captured. Why bring this up, what could this possibly have to do with building bridges or defining warriors of good heart? My point is, that there is a thin layer of atmosphere surrounding our dear earth, our home. It sustains life here on our little planet, what we do to it, we do to ourselves. That is the macro, and within our individual bodies is the micro, and what we do to it, we most certainly do to ourselves. There is no difference between the two, we are literally the air we breath and the water we drink. It is common sense and deductive reasoning which dictates that we must be good stewards of the earth, because we are the earth. In moments of rationality and knowing who we are, this becomes self evident.

This is the most important bridge to build between the peoples of the earth, if we are to survive as a species in a good way, or we will live in a cesspool of our own creation. We are always at a crossroad, for each choice we make has consequences. Our spiritually is immature and in its embryonic stage, it has quite literally not kept pace with our technological growth. The reason for this is simple, we are only now finding our center, for we as individuals as well as a whole have been steeped in self-centeredness. None of this mattered to the earth, for eons, but now that we have learned to split the atom, and create things like plastic, and harmful chemicals, it matters much.

The first people of this continent, had lived here for thousands of years without leaving a mark on the environment. The white warriors called them savages, but they were wrong, they saw them as different then themselves, and they were wrong. Which leads me to the Warriors of Good Heart, they come in all colors, and are women as well as men, they are old and they are young, they are maturing spiritual beings that know or at least sense the reality of being one with mother earth. As in the teachings of the Christ figure that God the creator is in all things simultaneously, and what we do to our brothers we do to ourselves. Each of the major religions have this at its essence, it was greed and the illusion of being separate that corrupted the message.

The warriors of good heart need no guns or weapons of war to spread the truth, they are awareness itself, and they are here to build bridges between the tribes of humankind. They come from the four corners of the earth and what they carry in their hearts is peace. The warriors of past ages, belong to the past, with their spears, arrows, swords, guns and bombs they bring only death and destruction; perhaps they had a place, but they have outlived their usefulness. Like the snake who sheds its skin in order to grow, they will also be shed no longer having a strangle hold over the body-spirit of humankind. We the masses must lay poverty at the doorstep of those old warriors, to which poverty and war belongs.

You will know them by their deeds, they hoard wealth and meet in secret places, they are manipulative and are driven by greed and a lust for power. They will build fences around themselves for they are full of a false fear, for what they fear are themselves and in turn life itself. The warriors of good hearts are the opposite of these things, although imperfect their level of imperfection sets them apart, for they are introspective and non manipulative they act out in the open, and face their own demons. Martin Luther King was such a warrior along with many others not as well known, they came to a place where they no longer feared death, for they knew that death was as equal, and as natural in life, as is birth. In so doing they transcended fear itself, and the grip it holds over them and us.

We are all God's children no one tribe has a special place in the creators heart, for God is life, as we are life, the difference is only in our limited perceptions, our egos and our ability to comprehend all that there is. We are none of the things we think we are, Christian, Muslim, or Jew; for peace to come the Universal Soldier in all of us must die and be no more. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iZBgwfv_p4Q&NR=1 On a star light night gaze into the heavens and wonder like children; for the innocent find that simple things bring pleasure, remember those moments when you felt that all was well, and life is and was as it should be.

The time for building bridges are upon us, listen to the Warriors of Good Heart and once again remember an enemy can be known by their deeds. When there are only two slices of pie left of unequal size and you are dishing it out, which slice will you be giving to yourself?

President Kennedy was the Epitome of an Epiphany and a warrior of good heart.
Much as been done that JFK warned us about .In my opinion much of what he warned us of has been occuring in the aftermath of 9/11.

The question we must ask is who benefited from September the Eleventh 2001, who hides in the shadows of clandestine operations and profits from war?


The Four Races Prophesy

The 4 races
By My Beautiful Sister-Magdala Ramirez / Mayan Priestess

Beautiful Ones,

There is a prophesy that the Great Spirit gave the four major races a gift,
the black people received the gift of the water,
the white people received the fire, the red people the earth,
and the yellow people received the wind, and then all the four races
went in different directions, and used and misused their talents.
The Great Spirit also said, there will be a time when all the races will
come back together, and put their talent in the very center,
so it can be used by the others in a good way,
that is when the fifth element will be uncover…. And the time is now…

The time has come for the people of the earth to come together
in a good way, and put their talents for the highest good of everyone,
the water represents the emotional body, the fire is the mind,
the earth is our physical body, the planet earth, the land,
and the wind is the spirit, and all together form what we call being human.

Human beings have many realms within the self, some of these realms
people are not aware of, yet if you see human beings as a whole then
everything will begin to make sense, even when people are not aware of it,
just like in the same way the geese fly together, as one single spirit,
so it is as a human being, this is the spirit of God-dess, as one…

Human beings for long have been out of their nature,
of his/her own humanness spirit, and created different ways to see themselves,
according to a back ground, according to a religion or tradition,
according to an environment that leads them to a different beliefs,
and they began to feel separated from each other, and felt good in creating so
many differences, and those differences became an identity,
a false image of the self, a false image of what a human being is truly….

For so long this human being has moved so far away from nature,
they went into self destructive behavior, and created wars with each other,
and separation and destruction is everywhere, for in their own way,
a self destructive force was taking place, for they feel separated within the self,
a fragmented self, that didn’t recognize themselves anymore as a
true human being, for the traditions, religions, backgrounds, languages,
created a gap, and limited the minds of the people,
in such a deep manner Now is the time for the integration of the self,
so human beings can recognize that there are many other realms,
as the multidimensional being that the human being really is,
and in the reflection in the outside of this incredible journey of being human
is the bonding and understanding of all the races of the world together,
in the inside.

Who will win? Who is the boss? Is it the mind, the fire?
Is it the emotional body, the water, Is it the earth,
or maybe the wind as a spirit?

Here is the situation, when human beings are able to see
themselves as a whole, as a complete being, that will be the big winning.
This is the time of the ascension, and human being is on an
incredible journey reaching themselves, reaching who they truly are,
recognizing themselves as a perfect being,
as a daughter and son of the Father Mother God,
and in this incredible journey, they need to begin to see themselves as a whole….

What has happened to the people and why are that they are so
afraid to see beyond their, cultural beliefs that has limited and
enslaved their minds for such a long time?

On this journey being human, a battle came into being inside of the people,
are human beings slaves their emotions, their heart?
Are they are so afraid of love ?
Does human being destroy the land, and themselves creating in that
way a self destructive way of living?
Does the mind wanted to possess and control everything through
the limitations based on a cultural belief?
Did the spirit get so broken that it gave up and does not believe
anymore in self?

Maybe I am late for the party, when I arrive here in USA ,
there were all these addictions of the system already into being,
a history, a her-story was already written, and created a big hurt
between the races, or as my beautiful sister said,
“maybe you are just in time for the new party”,
and this is the time where human beings are able to come
together as one, as an integrated self.
I am not sure about this party thing, I do believe in human beings.
In my connection with the Great Mother,
I listen carefully of what she is saying,
I born as a Mexican and as a woman, yet the journey have taken me
to move the identity, into many realms,
I have been everything, and everyone, I am you……
and still be “me”, …and so are you.

The new world is at hand, and human beings will uncover
the true human being inside of the self, and this is the time of the quickening,
so human being is ready to embrace who they are as a whole,
and learn to relate in a different manner, with the environment,
within each other, and the most important within the self.
And if we see this “process” in a country where all the races are together,
is very interesting to find out how is working in the outside
and making the reflection in the inside and inside as a reflection
to the outside.

For long time in the history, human being thought that freedom
needed to be fought for, not recognizing the freedom within,
as a right of being human, for long time human beings thought
that justice was something that the governments of the world
needs to provide to the people, instead of recognizing justice
inside of the self, now is the time to question What people have done
with their mind? People have become slaves of their own mind…
and thinking the land is there to use and abuse, is also being represented
by the women, for it is the land that bears life, that give life, sustains life,
and in the distorted mind way of thinking, the women were seen
as possessions and controlled, then the distortion of the communities
began to happen when the women that represents the virtual reality,
began to create a reality based on pain, truly a community’s happiness
will be according of how the women feels, “if mama is not happy
nobody is happy”.

The system has been creating and recreating based on
the wrong beliefs of human beings, human beings think that
the most important thing is the mind and has created a
slavery way of thinking, they value themselves
according of what they have, and posses,
the valorization of human being created the big Fall of the human being,
and then of course, many religions or traditions,
were created according to the false belief that
human beings are nothing but imperfect beings,
that has created a system that enslaves, manipulates,
destroys the true human being.

Now, human beings are in the process of enlightenment,
it is reaching a point where they need to see themselves in a different manner,
as whole, and to relearn, to remember, the ways of the true human being,
where the way to relate one to another is through respecting
each other ways.

The time where the broken mind, the limited mind,
the distorted mind, making the choices is gone….
Now the choices are being made by an integrated being,
ready to embrace who they are in the inside and
reflect that one into the manifestation in their outside.

In lakesh



Great Spirit Prayer

"Oh, Great Spirit, whose voice I hear in the wind,

whose breath gives life to all the world.
Hear me; I need your strength and wisdom.

Let me walk in beauty, and make my eyes ever behold the red and purple sunset.

Make my hands respect the things you have made and my ears sharp to hear your voice make me wise so that I may understand the things you have taught my people.

Help me to remain calm and strong in the face of all that comes towards me.
Let me learn the lessons you have hidden in every leaf and rock.

Help me seek pure thoughts and act with the intention of helping others.
Help me find compassion without empathy overwhelming me.

I seek strength, not to be greater than my brother, but to fight my greatest enemy - Myself.

Make me always ready to come to you with clean hands and straight eyes.

So when life fades, as the fading sunset, my spirit may come to you without shame.

~Chief Yellow Lark, Lakota Tribe


Hu The Breath of God

The Divine Utterance more commonly known as the Breath of God.
Ancient song of Love
My love song to the Creator

The Egyptian God, Hu
By Catherine C. Harris

The Egyptian god Hu was one of the minor gods in some respects, but he was one of the most important gods for those serious about Egyptian deities. Hu is the power of the spoken word. He personifies the authority of utterance.
One legend has it that the creator and Sun God, Re (Ra), evolved from the primeval waters of Egypt. Once alive, Re created the air (Shu) and the moisture (Tefnut). Next, the earth god, Geb and the sky goddess, Nut were created. Mortal men and women were created from the tears of Re. Re then drew blood from his own penis and created the gods Hu and Sia. These two gods represented the creative power of the gods.

Hu and Sia were partners. Sia was the personification of Divine Knowledge/Omniscience, the mind of the gods. Hu was the personification of Divine Utterance, the voice of authority. During Ancient times, Heka, the personification of Divine Power accompanied these two gods. Together, the three gods were very important to the rulers of Ancient Egypt. Along with the falcon-headed Sun God, they rode the Sunboat across the sky in order to create and sustain all life.

The act of the Sunboat traveling across the sky signifies that with each sunrise the world was created anew. Having traveled through the Underworld of night and making it past all the dangers therein, the Sunboat once again rises to confirm that life is created new each day.

Hu was particularly important because he was the epitome of the power and command of the ruler. Even after death, Hu was of the utmost importance to the Kings of Ancient Egypt. Hu acted as the King’s companion as the King entered the Afterlife. Through Hu, the King maintained his royal authority in the Afterlife. Hu allowed the King to cross the waters of his canal and acknowledged the King’s authority and supremacy.

So far, we know Hu as the personification of Divine Utterance. However, some legends maintain that he was not just a part of creation, but that he was the creator. It is said that as Hu drew his first breath, there was in that sound the essence of his name. Hence, we have the name Hu, which sounds remarkably like the sound of an expelling breath.

With each breath Hu expelled, creation took place. The first breath created the Soul of Osiris. His last creation was the Sun. So it is said that Hu is the Word of God, the first and the last breaths, Hu Hu.

The Ancient Egyptians recognized the Sphinx at the Giza Plateau as an image of Hu. The lion was a symbol of power and strength. Used as the body of the Sphinx, this was perfectly acceptable to the Ancient Egyptians. The face of the Sphinx wore the distinctive Red Crown of the Creator and the Osiris Beard. These were hallmarks of the time.

It’s been suggested that Ancient Egyptians would use the Sphinx in a ritual that reenacted the creation of the Universe. It was performed at dusk, as night was falling upon Egypt. This was considered the time before creation begun, when Hu (the Sphinx) sat silent.

When the signal was given, the sound of the first word of creation filled the air, as people made the sound they recognized as that breath, “Hhhhoooooooo.”
This “word,” the Word of God, would be chanted all through the night symbolizing the night of progressive creating. The final act of the ritual came at sunrise. As the sun rose out of the East, the last breath of Hu was recognized.

Sri Harold Klemp, Spiritual Leader of Eckankar, notes, “Hu is the ancient name of God, a love song to God. When Soul has heard this sound, Soul yearns to go home.”

Eckankar uses the singing of Hu’s name as a spiritual connection to the Heart of God. They sing the name Hu to draw closer to the Divine Being. For the people who follow this faith, the desires are reported to be love, freedom, wisdom, and truth.

Eckankar teaches, “A spiritual essence, the Light and Sound, connects everyone with the Heart of God. This Light and Sound is the ECK, or Holy Spirit. Direct Aspects of God opens the deep spiritual potential within each of us. The Light and Sound purify, uplift, and direct us on our journey to home.”

The Egyptian Book of the Dead, The Papyrus of Ani, mentions the ceremonies of Hu and Sa. One can only speculate as to the nature of such rituals and ceremonies. Could they be talking about the ancient ritual involving the Sphinx?

Hu may be considered a minor god in some ways, but it’s obvious that Hu was a not-so-minor god to most Ancient Egyptians.

How to Begin to change the world

Elders Speak

Spiritual Giant’s 10 Fundamentals for Changing the World

Mahatma Gandhi needs no introduction. Everyone knows about the man and his legacy. Here is some advice he gave worth noting:

1. Change yourself
“You must be the change you want to see in the world.”
If you change yourself you will change your world. If you change how you think, then you will change how you feel and what actions you take. And so the world around you will change.
2. You are in control
“Nobody can hurt me without my permission.”
What you feel and how you react to something is always up to you. You can choose your own thoughts, reactions and emotions.
3. Forgive and let it go
“An eye for eye only ends up making the whole world blind.”
Fighting evil with evil won’t help anyone. Forgiving and letting go of the past will do you and the people in your world a great service.
4. Without action you aren’t going anywhere
“An ounce of practice is worth more than tons of preaching.”
Without taking action very little will be done. However, taking action can be hard. And so you may resort to preaching, or reading and studying endlessly. But you have to take action and translate that knowledge into results and understanding.
5. Take care of this moment
“I do not want to foresee the future. I am concerned with taking care of the present. God has given me no control over the moment following.”
Stay in the present as much as possible, and be accepting. When you are in the present moment you don’t worry about the next moment. And the resistance to action comes from imagining negative future consequences or reflecting on past failures.
6. Everyone is human
“It is unwise to be too sure of one’s own wisdom. It is healthy to be reminded that the strongest might weaken and the wisest might err.”
When you start to make myths out of people, you run the risk of becoming disconnected from them. Keep in mind that everyone is just a human being no matter who they are.
7. Persist
“First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”
Be persistent. In time the opposition around you will fade and fall away.
8. See the good in people and help them
“I look only to the good qualities of men. Not being faultless myself, I won’t presume to probe into the faults of others.”
If you want improvement then focusing on the good in people is a useful choice. It also makes life easier for you as your world and relationships become more pleasant and positive.
9. Be congruent, be authentic, be your true self
“Always aim at complete harmony of thought and word and deed. Always aim at purifying your thoughts and everything will be well.”
When words and thoughts are aligned then that shows through in your communication. People tend to really listen to what you’re saying. You are communicating without incongruence, mixed messages or phoniness.
10. Continue to grow and evolve
”Constant development is the law of life, and a man who always tries to maintain his dogmas in order to appear consistent drives himself into a false position.”
You can pretty much always improve your skills and habits, or re-evaluate your evaluations. You can gain deeper understanding of yourself and the world.


Some not so common sense

The world is ablaze with fear right now.You can smell it.
Everyone wants to know what can they do when the folks in government do not listen to reason or seem sane. It is simple. The answer is stop feeding the beast. Stop using the credit cards,stop investing and supporting in corporate we do not give a damn about you or life America. Jobs? What jobs? It is up too us America,Not the President,not the Congress,not the Senate,
It's up to us "We the People".
Lets just simply say no to New World Orders, No to more government. Let your Representatives in Washington know that we have had enough. We do not need them to fix a blessed or a damned thing. We already know how incompetent they are and they are not on We the Peoples side.
Now lets support our local and state governments and get the right people in there .
We can take back our government from the bottom up! Do what you can in your community to help your community in any way you can. Start a movement in your community to rebuild and support itself..This is no time to set on the fence or the sidelines.
Those in Washington have sided with corporate America's life sucking policies against us. Get up! Empower yourself! Help others empower themselves. Gandhi,and Marten Luther King showed us how it's done,they did it with the people in powers money. They boycotted businesses and caused many millions of dollars in their community to go away due to their lack of support. To be more precise It worked because of the sheer numbers who did it. We can do what they have already done. We do not need to reinvent the wheel.
Create new industry,shop local Bz,Mom and Pop bz all that you can. Barter and trade whatever you can for what you need..grow as much of your own food as possible,make as much as you can ,recycle as much as you can, get your neighbors together and grow a community garden. Learn about herbalism and how that helps you stay healthy.
Learn about basic nutrition.Move your money to community banks. Don't take out loans unless you just have to. In short live within your means.If you are a meat eater see if you can get someone who hunts to bring you back some meat or if able hunt or fish for yourself. If your a vegetarian then your garden is the answer to the ever higher food bill. In short if you do not feed the beast of commercialism it will die and what will happen is new growth will appear and new jobs. American made jobs for American workers. Support what corporations are helping the planet survive.
If you have an IRA or a mutual fund instruct those in charge to only invest in good companies that bring more life and more abundance to all they work for and all they touch. I rarely feed the beast. Become as self sufficient as possible in the environment you live in. You will be happier. This blog will be featuring companies that are good for the health of all. Please do what you can where ever you can to support their growth and the growth of other companies like them .
One last thing if you are voting for a Republican or a Democrat you are wasting your vote if you are hoping for anything good or a worthwhile change.

All the power you need to change the world is in your wallet, in your voice,and in your letting your Representatives in Washington know that they are fired and that we are done with their mess.


You are so loved

Each day is a gift and so is everyone you will ever meet no matter how they behave for they have something to teach you.Just in case you need reminding... I want you all to know that you are loved. Many blessings on this wonderful day Creator has made for you ,just for you. If you do not feel loved it's because you haven't recognized it... not because it's not there. To often we do not give what's beautiful a place to live within us. Pain and life garbage is loud and noisy... so that is what grabs our attention. Beauty is quite and love is simple.... so often it gets overlooked in the noise of the outer world screaming for attention.


The New Age of Alternative fuels.

Dubai ,Brazil,Germany,what do all of these places have in common? They are the leaders in alternative Energy and they have proven it works on a large scale. More over they have been doing it for years. Go here for Dubai and here for Brazil.Here for Germany.Car manufacturers have been creating cars that run on alcohol and gasoline depending on the need.They call them flex fuel cars, and they look good running on it as well. Made By GM... Why don't we have these??They have had them for awhile in Brazil.. Perhaps it is because unlike America these countries are not run by corporations that have a huge invested interest in oil.Or maybe they feel the American buyer is to picky ,but most likely the reason is the OIL companies do not have this choice at the fuel pumps.
Brazils alternative fuel is made from sugar cane and beet sugar plants. This is wonderful and it is good to see that it is only seems to be America that has the problem with converting to Bio -fuels not the rest of the world..Suger Beets will grown in very cold climates while suger cane is limited to tropical regions only. So no matter what your countries climate is One of the plants will work for your area to produce Ethanol as a fuel and would make an excellent industry.
Oh and one last thing did you know that they have had a way to power a nuclear reactor without the deadly radiation from uranium for YEARS??? They use Thorium instead.. go here for that info. Know why we don't have it ??? Because you cannot make weapons with it. Also the Mining industry that mines Coal is owned by People who have have good friends in Washinton who love to help out their buddies especially when it puts money in their pockets.. How Fff'nnn special is that?
