Happy Planet Index
Does living a good life have to cost the Earth?  Happy Planet Index says it's possible for a nation to have  well-being with a low ecological footprint.  This Index  shows the ecological efficiency with which human well-being is created around the world.  It  is the first ever index to combine environmental impact with human  well-being to show country by country how people live long and happy  lives.

Make WAR illegal
Rape. Murder. Torture.  These  are grim crimes that are universally illegal and immoral. Commit these  crimes and go to jail UNLESS you are going to war. Then they are somehow  justified.  If these heinous crimes are illegal shouldn't WAR also be illegal? 

The  United States bombed, invaded and occupied an innocent nation, Iraq,  killing over a million innocent people - men, women and children. Anyone  who resisted the occupation of their own country was labeled an "enemy  combatant" and a "hostile." Men were taken from their homes by the  occupying Americans, by force, then imprisoned and tortured by the tens  of thousands. Innocent people were savagely gunned down on the streets.  The U. S. military film footage shown at link below provides stark  evidence of the insanity and inhumanity of warfare. These are crimes  against humanity.
It is easy to forget how much suffering has happened because of US.  Go to this link for an eye opening wake up call  LINK to UNIVERSAL FRIENDS.

Dream Dance - Life After Death

We need a REVOLT

This is a powerful and stunning insight.  It  is time for a revolution. Government does not work for regular people.  It appears to work quite well for big corporations, banks, insurance  companies, military contractors, lobbyists, and for the rich and  powerful. But it does not work for 'WE the People'.  The  1776 Declaration of Independence stated that when a long train of  abuses by those in power evidence a design to reduce the rights of people to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, it is the peoples right, in fact their duty to engage in a revolution. 
This is a great article to read, consider and act upon HERE

Message of Hope
(this has been around a long time but always nice to read)

On the surface of the world right now there is war and violence and things seem dark.
But calmly and quietly, at the same time, something else is happening underground.
An inner revolution is taking place and certain individuals are being called to a higher light.
It is a silent revolution. From the inside out. From the ground up. This is a Global operation.
Thinking  Globally - acting locally. The Acquarian spiritual Conspiracy. There  are sleeper cells in every nation on the planet. You won't see us on the  T.V. You won't read about us in the newspaper. You won't hear about us  on the radio. We don't seek any glory. We don't wear any uniform. We  come in all shapes and sizes, colors and styles. Most of us work  anonymously. We are quietly working behind the scenes in every country  and culture of the world. Cities big and small, mountains and valleys,  in farms and villages, tribes and remote islands.  You  could pass by one of us on the street and not even notice. We go  undercover. We remain behind the scenes. It is of no concern to us who  takes the final credit, but simply that the work gets done. During the  day many of us pretend we have normal jobs. But behind the false  storefront at night is where the real work takes a place.  Some  call us the Conscious Army. We are slowly creating a new world with the  power of our minds and hearts. We follow, with passion and joy. Our  orders come from the Central Spiritual Intelligence. We are dropping  soft, secret love bombs when no one is looking.
Random acts of kindness. We each express ourselves in our own unique ways. Be the change you want to see in the world. You  don't have to be a highly educated person. Or have any exceptional  knowledge to understand it. It comes from the intelligence of the heart.  Embedded in the timeless evolutionary pulse of all human beings. Be the  change you want to see in the world. Nobody else can do it for you. We  are now recruiting. Perhaps you will join us.
Or already have. All are welcome.  The door is open

"Silence  vibrating is Creation. Silence flowing is Love. Silence shared is  Friendship. Silence seen is Infinity. Silence heard is Adoration.  Silence expressed is Beauty. Silence maintained is Strength. Silence  omitted is Suffering. Silence allowed is Rest. Silence recorded is  Scripture. Silence preserved is Our Tradition. Silence given is  Initiating. Silence received is Joy. Silence perceived is Knowledge.  Silence stabilized is Fulfillment. Silence alone is."

Jai Guru Dev, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Founder of Transcendental Meditation.


It is my greatest honor to present to you: Ordinary Enlightenment.

Several years ago Eckhart Tolle sat on a park bench and very  few knew him. Today he is well known and regarded as an enlightened  person. How would it have been like to hang out with him in those early years?

We think we have found people who are seemingly living an ordinary life and having extraordinary inner experiences.

We offer monthly video clips and  uplifting quotes of people who are living in that state of  enlightenment. Each clip will be about 3 to 5 minutes long and the  purpose would be to assist in dissolving the false beliefs in who we  think we are.


You want PROOF?

What if it's possible to  actually prove that the mystics and saints were correct when they said  that we actually are ONE? And what if it could be done in a fun,  exciting way that touches millions of people who would not normally be  attracted to such ideas?

The PROOF will change the way you look  at yourself and the world you live in. Best of all, now YOU have the  opportunity to learn. (James Twyman movie).

"Don't Believe in God? You Are Not Alone"

New  York Times reports a rise of 85% of those willing to describe  themselves as living without belief in God during the 8 years of our  most overtly religious presidency.  It turns out that over 18% of  Americans do not profess belief in a God or a Higher Power.   Therefore  these new Secularists are one of America's largest minority groups - -   larger than African Americans or Gays.  Now that is impressive!

Why the New Year?
Why do we celevrate January 1st as our new year?
You already know this.

Here is a clue - why were Mary and Joseph traveling ?
Answer - to register for the census to pay taxes. 

As it turns out, January 1 is Tax Day for the Roman Empire, comparable to April 15 of the American Empire.  Amazing, yes?

Their New Year day was March 21 - the Spring Equinox.  One of  the reasons our civilization is enslaved to money is because our  artificial system of time is tied to ancient notions of Empire.  For  Real time, and an alternative economy, see Background Info below  (Celestial Cross and Zeitgeist Addendum).
