Soul Song

Being the song I am
Singing all notes
No shame,blame, nor guilt
Ignoring the social lies
That say I am less

I am Truth
I am Grace
I am Beauty
I am Love
I am Joy

I am soul dreaming new worlds

I am a rainbow song of light
Whole and complete
always on holy ground

Sacred I am
I am You.

How to Begin to change the world

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.
