As World Citizens, we work to safeguard and implement all human rights – civil and political, economic, social, and cultural – as the foundation of a just world society. Today, we see the rise of a new spirit of liberty and democracy throughout the world. The old structures of oppression and domination are crumbling — those of caste, class, gender and nation. In place of repression, there are new institutions of popular participation. These efforts of transformation merit support. The path may yet be hard, but the direction is set. Your cooperation in these tasks is welcome.

I have a contant comment for you SURYADASI DEVI.....you are a melody in my soul that is always there! I love you up to the sky and past it! I use to tell my mom and dad this when i was little. It was the measure of the most i knew of then.....and now. You are SISTER . You are ME. Have I told you how beautiful you are lately? YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL SURYADASI DEVI!
yeah-he eats the actual bark though-ha! too bad our trees are young and he killed a couple when we let him have at it..hopefully when they are a little older we can use him again. We use them around the farm in other places though. I hope you're having a great day :)
that is wonderful about yoru farm..good luck with that!
We haven't used neem yet. I keep suggesting it to my boyfriend though. Weeds are really the worse of our issues. They would be fine to keep, but we have a sprinkler system that they block. Good luck with your organic cow farm :)
Then let me go to nature as I came from nature
to the great cycles of creativity that I have dimly, so dimly, understood . . .
When you commit my ashes to the ground . . .commit them!
For then one cycle of individual life will be over,
and a unit of nature will be separated into its minute parts
for participation in new ways,
as atoms rearrange in the mysterious slow seething of the world.
Just as I have come from infinity, so I return to infinity,
between which events, for a little time, I came to celebrate that miracle
which I could never fathom.
Therefore, when it is time . . . yield me dying,
yield me dead in this tradition-
-earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust--
in sure and certain hope that the dust which bloomed briefly
in my loving will bloom again, bloom again in the renewal of species,
each meaning according to its kind with not even a single day of the mayfly
scorned; that this dust will bloom again and again and always again
until the seas run dry and the mountains disappear.
Mary Jean Irion, 1970

Sometimes I think that the Internet and social websites are the shadow or reflection of something much more spiritual. There's been a lot of times when I think of someone and then I get a message or an email, as if it's an echo from the original communication.
Wow I like it here! You are my very bestest friend Suryadasi Devi. I think this Richard Lukens seems to be alright too. Yeah friends! This is spirituallity and technology meeting here now....whoa cool!
