At the risk of sounding like someone just pressed the nostalgia button in my heart, I find myself wanting to be a catalyst for the revival of coffeehouses.
Many of us recall a time when transient artists were warmly welcomed to share music, poetry, etc. from the stage of a community location that did not exist for the sake of the almighty dollar. I liked the idealism of those days and although I am fully aware that many of the idealists moved on to become the establishment, I think… Continue

I WOKE UP THIS MORNING WITH A TUNE IN MY HEAD THAT TOOK ME BACK TO MY EARLY CHILDHOOD.
I LOVED THE MELODY, IT WAS PRETTY AND SOFT. THE CHORUS HOWEVER WOULD KNOT MY SOLAR PLEXUS AND A WAVE OF HELPLESSNESS WOULD WASH OVER ME.
I GUESS THAT WAS THE BEGINNING OF A PROGRAM THAT TOLD ME MY LIFE WAS IN THE HANDS OF A POWER MUCH GREATER THAN ME AND THAT I PLAYED NO PART IN CREATING MY REALITY.
EVEN AS A CHILD I REFUSED TO BUY INTO IT, BUT… Continue

Greater justice and economic improvement for the many is not always the result of social revolution. The Europeans’ guns overwhelming of the American Indian bow-and-arrow weapons was in most ways a retrogressive social revolution implemented by design-science revolution. It is always the design revolution that tips the social scales one way or the… Continue

I am excited about this new website and the communication it offers. Perhaps as people begin to really communicate with one another we will all begin, in our many varied ways around the planet, to create a new way of interacting with each other. I see it happening all over the web, all over the "real" world - people getting to speak with each other and find out..."aha it may not all be as it was presented all this time". In fact, we may all be a… Continue

For each definition you get right, they send 20 grains of rice to hungry people through the UN. With the assistance of an online dictionary, I just sent 1000 grains. The program has sent 56 BILLION grains of rice so far. If you don't have an extensive vocabulary, and a lot of the words are obscure, you'll learn some great Scrabble words :)

SHE GENTLY SIGHS AS SHE SOAKS UP TEARS FROM HEAVEN.
TEARS OF JOY, CLEANSING HER TO THE CORE.
THE END OF TIMES, DESTRUCTION CEASES,
TIME TO LOVE, HONOUR AND REVERE.
THE STAGE IS CHANGING, THERE ARE NO PARTS FOR VICTIMS, MARTYRS...
YOUR ENDLESS MONOLOGUE NOW FALLS ON DEAF EARS
EMBRACE THE BEAUTY AND ONLY BEAUTY.
WHERE ONCE THE DARK REIGNED IN ALL ITS GLORY,
REMNANTS LAY TO NEVER FORGET.
LEARN TO SING TO DIFFERENT MUSIC.

I just found this site and signed in. I feel lead to be here to start a new year, 2009. My member number adds to 11 in an 11 year. Feels very auspicious. What a wonderful network of people working toward a positive now. I am an artist and my goal this year is to truly find my artist soul - I've kept it my most sacred and secret part for a lifetime and as the world changes I feel my inner being bursting forth to join in the creation of a new way living on this beautiful earth.

This seems like an ideal moment to clear all the patterns within ourselves that no longer serve, in order to assist the collective. Ho'oponopono
is an ancient Huna concept that encompasses the idea of forgiveness, along with a rather extraordinary premise: that by looking deeply within to correct "errors" in our own perceptions, we can heal emotional, mental, and physical dis-ease in others, since we are all expressions… Continue

Sometimes I dream of heaven
that the people of the sun
color of the earth recognize their beauty
walk like kings and queens
in this existence
unaware of hierarchy of needs or power
that freedom is no longer contemplated as a desire
but recognized as breath
that we beings native to the this land
recognize the blessing that is to know love
to feel flesh press on flesh

This is a perfect moment.
It's a perfect moment for many reasons,
but especially because you and I
are waking up
from our sleepwalking thumbsucking dumbclucking collusion
with the masters of illusion and destruction.
Thanks to them, from whom the painful blessings flow,
We are waking up.
Thanks to them, from whom the awful teachings ooze,
We are waking up.
Their wars and… Continue

We have come to be danced
Not the pretty dance
Not the pretty pretty, pick me, pick me dance
But the claw our way back into the belly
Of the sacred, sensual animal dance
The unhinged, unplugged, cat is out of its box dance
The holding the precious moment in the palms
Of our hands and feet dance.
We have come to be danced
Not the jiffy booby, shake your booty for him… Continue
