There are a number of groups on AOAND that either promote taking a non violent stand against those who allude to power to the detriment of us all or offer sustainable alternatives to the current unacceptable status quo.

The way I see it, if we're all going in the same direction, it would help if we could all join hands. We need unity on this. I would urge all who feel strongly to join and lend support to any of the groups below of which you are not already a member. This will give us all equal access to shared information and ideas. Let's please unite and share.

Carry great joy

Carry great joy with you throughout this day. Spread it everywhere you go.
The quickest, most accessible way to experience joy in this world is to give it to others. Offer a sincere smile, a kind word, or a bit of assistance just because you can, and see how incredibly good it makes you feel.

The better you feel, the more you'll get accomplished. Express joy even though you have no specific reason, and you'll discover that joy is its own best reason.

With no sense of guilt, with no embarrassment, be the joyful person you know you can be. Give action and expression to the feeling of how truly fortunate you are to be living this day.

With joy as your constant companion, you can make a difference everywhere you go. By focusing on the positive side, you make everything more positive.

Add more joy to life today. And see how much brighter you can make your world.

Hi folks,

I'm new to here, it's a great site and also through this group I just visited your site , that is a great resource.

I noticed your comment below Betsy and I understand the feeling entirely, I have put many hours into sites and spreading info etc and it can seem that it isn't getting to anyone that needs to see it or appreciates it but ........ it does get to people and it plants seeds. I know once I was told that we are the ones who can plant the seeds of Peace, wisdom, etc but we usually never get to see them grow, but that doesn't mean they aren't growing.

I have shifted my way of working for change, but I will never give up and as long as we all do what we can and at the same time remain as positive as possible and join together to spread positive energy (along with the physical effort to clean things up, spread awareness, etc) then there will be change and things will be the way they should be with the Earth being a safe, happy and healthy place for all beings.

Anyone around the Cincinnati area (or even collaborating over the web) that would like to join in a not for profit Music for Peace project please contact me, it is intended to carry positive energy and will not really deal with many issues directly, just carry positivity and help join us together..
Another project that is more for getting information out and will talk about issues is
Stay Positive.

Music is looked upon as something serious and holy, designed to purify the feelings of the people. The enthusiasm of the heart expresses itself involuntarily in a burst of song or the rhythmic movement of the body. From immemorial times the inspiring affects that moves all hearts, and draws them together, has mystified mankind.
The ancient kings made music in order to honor merit, and offered it with splendor to the Supreme Deity inviting their ancestors to be present. In the Temple folks drew near to God with music and pantomimes. The Ancestors were invited to these divine rituals as guests of the ruler of heaven and as representatives of humanity in the higher regions. This uniting of the human past with the Divinity in revering his ancestors with solemn moments of spiritual inspiration established the bond between God and man. Our first Earthdance and Theater.

I am the dust in the sunlight, I am the ball of the sun . . .

I am the mist of morning, the breath of evening . . . .
I am the spark in the stone, the gleam of gold in the metal . . . .
The rose and the nightingale drunk with its fragrance.

I am the chain of being, the circle of the spheres,
The scale of creation, the rise and the fall.
I am what is and is not . . .

I am the soul in all.

- Rumi

Hi Victor. My "solution" to Global Warming and the other environmental problems we are facing is to encourage all levels of government to educate and encourage their citizens to Take Care of Their Share of the planet.

Our objectives:

1) Encourage the creation of a central Federal website as a gateway to organizations that teach people how to Take Care of Their Share of the planet (EPA, NRCS, US Fish & Wildlife, etc.) as well as links to state portals.

2) Encourage the creation of websites for every state which provide links to the various government and nonprofit organizations within their state that provide the information residents need to become effective environmental stewards. These departments would include natural resources, conservation, native plant societies, fish & wildlife departments, cooperative extension system offices, solid waste departments, water management, etc.

3) Encourage governments to regularly inform residents of these sites through handouts at building and utility departments, driver license bureaus and other government offices.

4) Encourage the government to provide incentives through rebates, etc. for citizens to participate in the Take Care of Your Share campaign

5) Until these actions are taken, we will strive to provide our own portal to information to Educate and Encourage all citizens to Take Care of Their Share of the planet.

I didn't see a means for logging in to your site at or registering for an account, but I do like what I see. Can you Discuss in this group here your Global Warming solution? I'm looking forward to learning more.

Thanks Linda.

I took a poke around your site. Nice job! I shared it with another site I go to.
Comment by Betsy S. Franz on March 4, 2009 at 7:39pm
Yes, that's all I was asking. I'll use Governor Schwarzennegger (sp?) as an example. I got a message from him (supposedly) that said that he appreciates my work to solve the world's problems with Global warming. I'm sure it was just a form message. All I would like is for someone well-known -- actually, at this point, all I want is for ANYONE, ANYONE to login to my website or send me a message and say that they really like my idea. It's rather disheartening to spend so many hours a week trying to make a difference and not feel like anyone notices.
