Contemplate

The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.
Don’t go back to sleep.

You must ask for what you really want.
Don’t go back to sleep.

People are going back and forth across the doorsill
Where the two worlds touch.

The door is round and open.
Don’t go back to sleep.

Rumi

Quan Yin


The Venus Project

The Venus Project presents a bold, new direction for humanity that entails nothing less than the total redesign of our culture. There are many people today who are concerned with the serious problems that face our modern society: unemployment, violent crime, replacement of humans by technology, over-population and a decline in the Earth's ecosystems.

Jacque Fresco on Larry King 1974

Excellent Series with many innovative and achievable solutions for changing society.

The Mouse Trap - A mouse looked through the crack in the wall to see the farmer and his wife open a package.What food might this contain?" The mouse wondered - he was devastated to discover it was a mousetrap. Retreating to the farmyard, the mouse proclaimed the warning. There is a mousetrap in the house! There is a mousetrap in the house!"

Brenna Iset Self Love is the Key ~ 2012 -

''The only thing to be concerned about is your own fear. So take the time right now in each moment to learn to let go of it.  Fear is a waste of your time and energy because it is an illusion.  Think of it this way, if you dropped the body today, you would exist as Love, it is what you truly are.  Love is the only thing that is real, permanent, and infinite. If you can remain in Love, letting go of fear... then you will start attuning to the new frequencies that Earth is becoming. That is why it has been seen as the end of Earth by seers... it is the end of Earth in it’s lower frequencies.

Yes, it will be mayhem for those who are vibrating in fear, greed, and lust for power. But for you brave souls who have had the fortitude to let it all go, and are living in the Love and Light of your True Self... you will experience a miracle promised by God. ''

Living Without Money THE FILM - COMING 2010
How free are we in our relationship with money?
Is it possible to feel rich without possessions?

I Live Without Money - Mark Boyle
In six years of studying economics, not once did I hear the word "ecology". So if it hadn't have been for the chance purchase of a video called Gandhi in the final term of my degree, I'd probably have ended up earning a fine living in a very respectable job persuading Indian farmers to go GM, or something useful like that. The little chap in the loincloth taught me one huge lesson – to be the change I wanted to see in the world. Trouble was, I had no idea back then what that change was. His responses


 

I periodically watch the dvd Celestine Prophecy and review all the insights thoroughly again.

The Celestine Prophecy Insights

THE FIRST INSIGHT . . . A CRITICAL MASS... A new spiritual awakening is occurring in human culture, an awakening brought about by a critical mass of individuals who experience their lives as a spiritual unfolding, a journey in which we are led forward by mysterious coincidences.


THE SECOND INSIGHT . . . THE LONGER NOW...This awakening represents the creation of a new, more complete worldview, which replaces a five-hundred-year-old preoccupation with secular survival and comfort. While this technological preoccupation was an important step, our awakening to life's coincidences is opening us up to the real purpose of human life on this planet, and the real nature of our universe.


THE THIRD INSIGHT . . . A MATTER OF ENERGY...We now experience that we live not in a material universe, but in a universe of dynamic energy. Everything extant is a field of sacred energy that we can sense and intuit. Moreover, we humans can project our energy by focusing our attention in the desired direction...where attention goes, energy flows...influencing other energy systems and increasing the pace of coincidences in our lives.


THE FOURTH INSIGHT . . . THE STRUGGLE FOR POWER...Too often humans cut themselves off from the greater source of this energy and so feel weak and insecure. To gain energy we tend to manipulate or force others to give us attention and thus energy. When we successfully dominate others in this way, we feel more powerful, but they are left weakened and often fight back. Competition for scarce, human energy is the cause of all conflict between people.


THE FIFTH INSIGHT . . . THE MESSAGE OF THE MYSTICS...Insecurity and violence ends when we experience an inner connection with divine energy within, a connection described by mystics of all traditions. A sense of lightness--buoyancy--along with the constant sensation of love are measures of this connection. If these measures are present, the connection is real. If not, it is only pretended.


THE SIXTH INSIGHT . . . CLEARING THE PAST...The more we stay connected, the more we are acutely aware of those times when we lose connection, usually when we are under stress. In these times, we can see our own particular way of stealing energy from others. Once our manipulations are brought to personal awareness, our connection becomes more constant and we can discover our own growth path in life, and our spiritual mission--the personal way we can contribute to the world.


THE SEVENTH INSIGHT . . . ENGAGING THE FLOW...Knowing our personal mission further enhances the flow of mysterious coincidences as we are guided toward our destinies. First we have a question; then dreams, daydreams, and intuitions lead us towards the answers, which usually are synchronistically provided by the wisdom of another human being.


THE EIGHTH INSIGHT . . . THE INTERPERSONAL ETHIC...We can increase the frequency of guiding coincidences by uplifting every person that comes into our lives. Care must be taken not to lose our inner connection in romantic relationships. Uplifting others is especially effective in groups where each member can feel energy of all the others. With children it is extremely important for their early security and growth. By seeing the beauty in every face, we lift others into their wisest self, and increase the chances of hearing a synchronistic message.


THE NINTH INSIGHT . . .THE EMERGING CULTURE...As we all evolve toward the best completion of our spiritual missions, the technological means of survival will be fully automated as humans focus instead on synchronistic growth. Such growth will move humans into higher energy states, ultimately transforming our bodies into spiritual form and uniting this dimension of existence with the after-life dimension, ending the cycle of birth and death.


THE TENTH INSIGHT . . . HOLDING THE VISION...The Tenth Insight is the realization that throughout history human beings have been unconsciously struggling to implement this lived spirituality on Earth. Each of us comes here on assignment, and as we pull this understanding into consciousness, we can remember a fuller birth vision of what we wanted to accomplish with our lives. Further we can remember a common world vision of how we will all work together to create a new spiritual culture. We know that our challenge is to hold this vision with intention and prayer everyday.


THE ELEVENTH INSIGHT . . . EXTENDING PRAYER FIELDS...The Eleventh Insight is the precise method through which we hold the vision. For centuries, religious scriptures, poems, and philosophies have pointed to a latent power of mind within all of us that mysteriously helps to affect what occurs in the future. It has been called faith power, positive thinking, and the power of prayer. We are now taking this power seriously enough to bring a fuller knowledge of it into public awareness. We are finding that this prayer power is a field of intention, which moves out from us and can be extended and strengthened, especially when we connect with others in a common vision. This is the power through which we hold the vision of a spiritual world and build the energy in ourselves and in others to make this vision a reality.


THE TWELFTH INSIGHT . . . IS YET TO BE RELEASED...

"We join spokes together in a wheel,
but it is the center hole
that makes the wagon move.

We shape clay into a pot,
but it is the emptiness inside
that holds whatever we want.

We hammer wood for a house,
but it is the inner space
that makes it livable.

We work with being,
but non-being is what we use."
Lao Tsu

Salute to the Sun

"I watched prairie dogs every day, rise before the sun, stand with their paws pressed together facing the rising sun in total stillness for up to 30 minutes," says Williams. "And then I watched them at the end of the day take that same gesture 30 minutes before the sun goes down; they would press their palms together in perfect stillness. I don't mean to anthropomorphize, but when you look at a creature that has survived over the millennium begin and end each day in that kind of stance, it causes one to think about one's own life and speed and the rapidity in which we live."


 

If a dog was the teacher you would learn things like:

When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.
Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure Ecstasy.
Take naps.
Stretch before rising.
Run, romp, and play daily.
Thrive on attention and let people touch you.
Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass.
On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.
When you're happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.
Be loyal.
Never pretend to be something you're not.
If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.
When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by, and nuzzle them gently.

renewal, and transformation in our lives." -Mary Ann Brussat

It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset.

My best Acquaintances are those
With Whom I spoke no Word—
The Stars that stated come to Town
Esteemed Me never rude
Although to their Celestial Call
I failed to make reply—
My constant—reverential Face
Sufficient Courtesy.

Oh Matchless
Earth, We
underrate the
chance to
dwell in thee.

-Emily Dickinson

If you will think of ourselves as coming out of the earth, rather than having been thrown in here from somewhere else,
you see that we are the earth, we are the consciousness of the earth. These are the eyes of the Earth.
And this is the voice of the earth. -Joseph Campbell

We are surrounded by a rich and fertile mystery. -Henry David Thoreau

Till I am carried away

All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child. -Marie Curie

Until lions have their historians, tales of the hunt shall always glorify the hunters.

Before their arrival it is called myth, folktale, legend, fairy tale, oral poetry, ethnography.
After the soldiers arrive, it is called history.

and the future promising.

If you would preserve peace, then prepare for peace.

let there be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.
Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone.

There are no guarantees.
From the viewpoint of fear, none are strong enough.
From the viewpoint of love, none are necessary.
Emmanuel

There is a sense of universal responsibility that touches every aspect of modern life.
Nowadays, important events which take place in one part of the world
end up having consequences all around the planet.
For this reason, we have to consider that every major local
problem is of global concern as soon as it appears.
It is no longer possible to invoke the national, racial or ideological barriers
which separate us, without destructive repercussions.
In this context of our new interdependence, taking care of the interests of others
is the best form of selfishness... ­ H.H. the Dalai Lama

I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is
only temporary; the evil it does is permanent. -- Mohandas K. Gandhi

While you are proclaiming peace with your lips, be careful to have it
even more fully in your heart.~ St. Francis Of Assisi

At the center of non-violence stands the principle of love.
-- Martin Luther King

Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our Light, not our Darkness, that most frightens us.
Marianne Williamson

I know that you cannot hate other people without hating yourself.
Oprah Winfrey

There is no flag large enough to cover the shame of killing innocent people.

which uplifts those who are around you.
If you can maintain this habit, this energy will turn
into a steady flow of love. ~ Annamalai Swami

Imagine all the people living life in peace.

The way of peace is the way of love.
Love is the greatest power on earth.
It conquers all things. -- Peace Pilgrim

all come in communities.
The singular cannot in reality exist. ~ Paula Gunn Allen

How can one not speak about war, poverty, and inequality
when people who suffer from these afflictions don't have a voice to speak?
Isabel Allende

We can create a world at peace, one person at a time.
Each person at peace brings more peace to the world.
Every personal encounter is a chance to bring peace to the world.
In every personal encounter, we can bring some peace to the world.
In every personal encounter, I will give only peace to the world.
Charles David Heineke

We may never be strong enough to be entirely nonviolent in thought, word and deed.
But we must keep nonviolence as our goal and make strong progress towards it.
The attainment of freedom, whether for a person, a nation or a world, must be
in exact proportion to the attainment of nonviolence for each.
Gandhi

Let us plant dates even though those who plant them will never eat them.
We must live by the love of what we will never see.
This is the secret discipline.
It is a refusal to let the creative act be dissolved away in immediate sense experience,
and a stubborn commitment to the future of our grandchildren.
Such disciplined love is what has given prophets, revolutionaries, and saints
the courage to die for the future they envisaged.
They make their own bodies the seed of their highest hope.
Ruben Alves Tomorrow’s Child

If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor.
If an elephant has it’s foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral,
the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality.
Bishop Desmond Tutu

The easiest kind of relationship is with ten thousand people, the hardest is with one.
Joan Baez

Sharing is sometimes more demanding than giving. ~ Mary Catherine Bateson

It's odd how those who dismiss the peace movement as utopian,
don't hesitate to proffer the most absurdly dreamy reasons for going to war:
to stamp out terrorism, install democracy, eliminate fascism,
and most entertainingly, to "rid the world of evil-doers. ~ Arundhati Roy

Flags are bits of colored cloth that governments use first to shrink-wrap people's brains
and then as ceremonial shrouds to bury the dead. ~ Arundhati Roy

One must care about a world one will never see.
Bertrand Russell

It is only with the heart that one can see rightly;
what is essential is invisible to the eye.

and the wisdom to know the difference.

which means: I honor the place in you where the entire universe resides;
I honor the place in you where the entire universe resides;

I honor the place within you where if you are in that place
in you and I am in that place in me,
there is only one of us..
Namaste. ~ Ram Dass

The love of one's country is a splendid thing.
But why should love stop at the border?
Pablo Casals

I am only one; but still I am one.
I cannot do everything, but still I can do something.
I will not refuse to do the something I can do.
Helen Keller

If we could raise one generation with unconditional love, there would be no Hitlers.
We need to teach the next generation of children from Day One
that they are responsible for their lives.

We can make our choices built from love or from fear..
Dr. Elizabeth Kubler-Ross

The Mystery

Beauty is before me, and beauty behind me,
Above me and below me hovers the beautiful.

And, in old age I shall walk quietly the beautiful trail.
In beauty it is begun.
In beauty it is ended.
-- Navajo Prayer


Who will hold my hand?
Who will send the energy on to weave a circle of light?

I call to the four corners of the Earth,
Strengthen this circle and let the power grow,
Let the love flow!
--A Druidic Prayer

I am open to the guidance of synchronicity,
and do not let expectations hinder my path.

and focus in the brightest.
I do not judge the universe.

Celtic Commandments
Give thou thine heart to the wild magic,
To the Lord and the Lady of Nature,
Beyond any consideration of this world.
Do not covet large or small,
Do not despise weakling or poor,
Semblance of evil allow not near thee,
Never give nor earn thou shame.

The Ancient Harmonies are given thee,
Understand them early and prove,
Be one with the power of the elements,
Put behind thee dishonour and lies.

Be loyal to the Lord of the Wild Wood,
Be true to the Lady of the Stars,
Be true to thine own self besides,
True to the magic of Nature above all else.

Do not thou curse anyone,
Lest thou threefold cursed shouldst be,
And shouldst thou travel ocean and earth,
Follow the very step of the ancient trackways.
--From the carmina gadelica, ancient celtic oral tradition

I am the Creator that Dreams
by Mystery School Initiate, Ember Flower
I am the Creator that dreams
I am the Creation
I am the atom, the molecule and the space in between
I am the trees and the forest, the wind and the air
The stars and the twinkle
I dance the cosmic dance , I am the dance
I am you and you are me
There is no separation only oneness
I am thought I am matter
I am love and I am joy
I am sadness and sorrow
I am he and I am she, and I am it
I am the flower and the stone
I am the heartbeat and the rain
The sorrow and the pain
The moon and the stars
I am all and all is me
Life is my thought and my dream
I am all there is and all there is, is me
I am now and becoming
Forever unfolding in the mist of time.
I dream and so it is
You are child of light, I am the Flame of Life
No separation exists, only union
The child lives within the flame
Feel my presence, feel my magic
All is magic, all is life, my beloved flower
Allow the joy and love to flow through you
And out there.
As you touch the word know that it is my hand and my voice
As the world touches you, know that it is I
Feel the exchange folding back into itself
As I touch your mind know that you are transformed
Never to be the same again
Transformed from darkness to light
From sleeping to wakefulness,
And so the world awakes, one cell at a time
One cell in happy awareness of union with the divine
Your time has come daughter of Light arise in your wakefulness
and help to create paradise, in love and joy
Be a conscious participant Live in the now.
Not tomorrow or yesterday but in the only time that is real, eternity.


It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare;
it is because we do not dare that they are difficult.
-- Seneca

Taking the first footstep with a good thought, the second with a good word,
and the third with a good deed, I entered paradise.
Zoroaster

 

Kent Keith - People Are Often Unreasonable

People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered;
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies;
Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
Build anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may just never be enough;
Give the world the best you have anyway.

You see, in the final analysis, it's all between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.

According to the author, Mother Teresa was so moved by these commandments
that she hung them on a wall in her orphanage in Calcutta.


Immortality

What are your thoughts on everlasting life?... There are many accounts of immortalists in literature such as those found in the series The Masters of the Far East and references to The Eight Chinese Immortalists - one being

T'ieh-Kuai Li - A beggar with a crutch. He is said to have been a disciple of Lao-Tzu, who summoned him to Heaven, instructing him to leave his body in the care of a pupil.
