Today, I helped work on a house that was almost ready for floor covering, so this was good.. seeing a house that is almost ready for finishing..

Oaxaca is a province in Mexico where the common (mostly indigenous) people are resisting oppression and exploitation by their government. The US government would probably call them "communists" if they'd have anything to say about it.
The people… Continue

As always I pray you are well, as we stand together in the midst of our quantum metamorphosis. Before sitting down to write, I thought (and inquired of Spirit) what is there to say right now that isn't redundant and will best serve those reading it?
"There is much complexity in the minds of many," I heard. "Share something simple that speaks to the only thing that matters, love. Remind the many that above all else love must become the focus of all choices,… Continue

Today is Saturday, January 31, and the word for the day is: "Smiling." I have much to smile about today, as I am preparing to conduct a choral workshop entitled, "Be The Sound Of Peace," as well as a culminating concert event up in Auburn, CA at the Foothill Center for Spiritual Living! I feel so very honored to have been asked to participate in this exciting project, a "kick-off" for the 12th annual Season For Nonviolence and a fundraiser for Peace For… Continue

I woke up last Sunday morning feeling very far from peaceful. My dreams were filled with my inflicting physical and emotional harm on those I felt had done me serious damage. This was serious stuff - these people had all but destroyed my reputation and career - it is not uncommon for people who have gone through that particular ordeal to commit suicide.
While that was 2 years ago the damage continues and I've struggled to find a full-time job to replace that one. My mind continues to… Continue

This morning my beloved uncle Bob died of cancer. He passed away gently, in his sleep. Yet another casualty of the cancer epidemic that is sweeping this planet. He contracted cancer from exposure to asbestos at a pulp mill he worked in.
My brother Randy also died of cancer, just a few years ago. Too many of us, far too many of us have been touched by cancers cruel fingers. Although it is often difficult to prove, I believe that the huge spike in cancer we… Continue

'India protecting western world from Lashkar's hate'
Amitabh Sinha, Jan. 29

and threatened him with his mighty rack of antlers,points all freshly sharpened,
and ready for Battle,aimed at the wolf who went along,unaware of the hate in the elks… Continue
Wow, I heard this on the Radio, what are your thoughts on this? This is 2009, dont you think this is a little bit over the top? I really do pray for the negative energies that Nigeria is going to be feeling. Humans are Humans no matter what beliefs they have or gender they prefer. We are all One, I think you forgot that small detail. Peace to Nigerians who are gay or secretly gay, I feel for you people who are living in the stone ages.
For all the gay people, be careful and not show… Continue

As if it’s not horrific enough to watch the cruel, senseless, heartless way that some adults treat animals, we also have to bear witness to the phenomenon of young children emulating this behavior towards other creatures, helpless and smaller than themselves, and this include other children. Bulling, assault and yes, even children killing other children. This situation screams for and begs the answer to the question of, how long are we as the human race going to allow this condition of… Continue
