Yes, we're neighbours! I live in Gibsons, BC, a ferry-ride north of Vancouver. It's paradise here! My mother taught anthropology at OSU (Corvallis) for many years. Oregon is gorgeous!
The name of the movie is 'Knowledge is the Beginning' (not 'Knowledge is Beautiful'). I hope you can get hold of it: I predict that you'll love it both because of the phenomenal musicians and also because of the enormously powerful connections formed between young people who would otherwise fear (and perhaps despise) one another.
My family moved to Israel in 1954 (I was an infant) when my father's university teaching position was threatened by the McCarthy-era 'red scare' (are you familiar with that period in US history?). We lived there until 1957. I have a few memories, including bits of Hebrew. My parents loved many aspects of life in Israel, but were appalled by the palpable racism and the way Palestinians were treated. And, tragically, it has only gotten worse.
I look forward to checking out your web page later today!
Thanks for your thoughtful friendship invitation, Rebecca. I'm so pleased to meet you here and very happily accept! You're one of the few iPEACE friends I have who lives nearby! I just listened to your Perseids piece: it's beautiful! I love the piano. As a young girl I studied piano at the Cleveland Institute of Music, gave it all up when I het my teens and then returned with passion when I was 39 and pregnant with my second child. I'm working on a few Beethoven sonatas right now (well . . . I put in half an hour every few days when I can grab time). Like working in my garden, playing piano brings me comfort and equanimity. I love your 'headline' re: music and peace. Have you ever seen the movie 'Knowledge is the Beginning'? It's an incredible documentary about a Palestinian/Israeli youth orchestra formed and directed by Daniel Barenboim with Edward Said. I'm moved to tears every time I see it.
Welcome to the Living Goddess Tradition page in iPeace. Thank you very much for accepting my invitation to be my friend, I am grateful that we can now share friendship. We hope that we can be supportive in your spiritual journey.
It is time that all women come together and work together to reclaim their rightful place in society as Guardians of Mother Earth. Only a Mother knows the pain of another Mother. Mothers do not send their children to be killed.
For Peace to prevail again both woman and man must seriously re-evaluate the position of women in contemporary societies. In the early times there has been a society based around a Goddess Religion. Societies of the time were peaceful, agrarian lifestyle. As such, we must first work toward removing gender imbalance, which is still glaringly obvious in modern society.
In all of this, for peace to prevail, women must be worshiped as a Goddess, as she too is part of the Great Mother Goddess, thus making her worthy of being worshiped. When society was based around a Goddess Religion, women were worshiped as Goddesses.
The important of the Goddess as a symbol of motherhood has to be felt and understood. All being ever been born or ever to be born will experience its mother as “numinous” (suffused with a feeling of Divinity). A women’s love must be free from selfishness, otherwise it does not produce proper motherhood, as the mother influences the future generation. If the fire has no flame it cannot give light, and smoke comes out of it, which is troublesome for the future generation. Such is selfish love.
Love and wisdom create harmony between man and woman; but these being absent, harmony ceases to exist. Without harmony, one cannot have peace. Ardh-narishwara, hermaphroditic deity incorporating male (Shiva) and female (Shakti) qualities, symbolic of the bipolarity of the human body. In The Living Goddess Tradition, the right side of the body considered male and the left side female. This is true for both men and women. Love can only exist, when one connects with one’s soul, and then realize the God (male), Goddess (female) within. Men’s fascination with women as a source of life, has been known from the beginning of time, yet men in modern society, due to his rushed life have forget the art of worshiping a woman as his Goddess, for his betterment. Woman on the other hand are busy to make their mark in the world, have forget that they are the life giving essence, the same essence as the Great Goddess of Creation, Para-Sakthi.
On December 13, 2008 we started a new network that will offer lesson on how to become a Goddess; http://the-living-goddess-tradition.ning.com/ This network is open to both men and women who wants to transform the life, and bring peace back, and save the world.
Let us together find peace within, and then world peace.
May the Divine Mother cradle you in Her Love and Light
Sri Devanayagi Parameswaran
"Love is like the fire; it glow is devotion, its flame is wisdom, its smoke is attachment, and its ashes detachment. When love’s fire produces its flame it illuminates the soul".( Hazrat Inyat Khan)

Excuse me please,Dear Angel fingers,Rebecca, and accept my apologies for having my head in the sand, but since I have taken it out, five minutes ago,I heard your Beautiful music,and excellent musical composition. I applaud the most exquisite notation and delightful melodies dancing so tranquilly magical. Your musical scales wander like a walk in the woods, and they touch each tree it passes, and each tree has a different memory and story of which leaves grew from it,but all the trees are in the same wooded area, and I have paddled through these most gracious woods, on a stream of enlightenment.Blessing of Love, Light, Peace, Creativity and Joy, Drear musical Angel, absolutely Wonderfully marvelous, Johnny . x X also Holiday Christmas Blessing and tidings of Joy...
