John Beckett ~ The Pyramids of Uxmal

I can’t reblog this article, so I’ll just post a link.

I always enjoy John Beckett’s contemplative musings, and this piece combines personal experience, ancient Mayan ruins, modern Mayan civilization, a ghost story of sorts, and important questions to ask ourselves as individuals and as a society. John’s a self described “Pagan, Druid and Unitarian Universalist,” but for some reason this piece particularly reminds me of the prayer of confession in the Episcopal Church, which seeks forgiveness “for things done and for things left undone.” As the days shorten into winter nights and the world around us continues to offer chaos, I find myself going deeper inside, too. This is an uncomfortable read, but one that asks us to consider what is ours to do.

In a world of imperfect options, at what point do we fight for our lives or for sacred things threatened with destruction? “[W]hat necessary acts are we neglecting because we find them unpleasant? What helpful changes have we not made because they carry risks, risks that are far less than those faced by the players on the Uxmal ball court?” Worth an introspective read.

Smoking guns: why Maui can defeat Monsanto

laurabruno:

Excellent research by Jon Rappoport, as well as a clear, highly inclusive strategy. I like it! Please spread his information to any anti-GMO groups, citizens’ rights, sovereignty, indigenous, or other groups you know who might be able to add their support.

Smoking Guns: why Maui can defeat Monsanto

Smoking gun 1: 1993 Joint Resolution of the US Congress, signed into law by President Clinton, 21 years ago today (November 23, 1993)

Smoking gun 2: Hawaii State Constitution

Smoking gun 3: US Constitution

To recap: on Election Day, the voters of Maui passed a ballot measure that blocked Monsanto and Dow from developing and using new GMOs.

In the wake of this historic victory to ban GMOs, Monsanto sued Maui.

The forces now aligned against the citizens of Maui include: Monsanto and Dow, the US federal government, and even the Maui County government, which has caved in, opposes the will of its own voters, and is colluding with Monsanto to strike down the ballot measure—after it won.

However, there are smoking legal guns in this case, and they provide an opening for the…

Please Keep The Prayers And Thoughts Coming

laurabruno:

Please keep these people and anyone dealing with the massive snow and anticipated floods in NY, in prayer and calm, loving energy. May they find peace amidst the storms and aftermath, and may we each carry peace and clarity as we face our own storms — whether natural, unnatural or metaphorical. Blessings, love and calm….. this, too, shall pass.

Dearest Friends …. To even try to put into words how deeply touched I am by all your concern, prayers, thoughts, Love, and Light, is not possible. We are living through one of the greatest disasters known to WNY and Lancaster, NY. At times it is terrifying, gut wrenching fear wanting to just take over. That I will not allow to happen.

I am feeling very tired this day, my face pale, my stomach hurting, bouts of dizziness coming and going, and all I want to do is to lay down and sleep. I am not able to do this. My…

Jon Rappoport ~ Follow the money: the Maui-Monsanto war

Follow the money: the Maui-Monsanto war


This is a stunner.

On Election Day, Maui passed a local initiative blocking Monsanto and Dow from developing new GMOs in Maui County.

According to Ballotpedia, the winning war chest in the election was, overwhelmingly, composed of contributions from five individuals.

Total? $55,000.

The losing war chest consisted of contributions from three groups: Monsanto, Dow AgroSciences, and the Council for Biotechnology Information.

Total? $7,876,000.

I can think of a hundred things to say, but I’ll let most of them ride.

You decide what the lessons are.

Yes, Monsanto is now suing Maui to reverse the results of the ballot measure, claiming state and federal law trumps a county vote.

But check your cynicism at the door long enough to appreciate what it took for the citizens of Maui and the local Shaka Movement to shock the world.

Authentic hope and change? THIS is what it looks like.

‘Electrified Living – Peace Lies in the Deep of the Ocean': Lee Harris November 2014 Energy Update

laurabruno:

I read Lee’s message last night and was about to post it this morning, before seeing Tania already had. I’ve definitely noticed people going deep and having breakthroughs during sessions, especially this week. Great intensity, but also great healing for those willing to accept their feelings as information, followed by empowered and empowering choices. Also, just a side note: I keep hearing about helpers and healers having adrenal fatigue or nervous exhaustion. Please take care of yourselves! Nurture yourselves, especially if you provide support for others navigating such troubled waters. Remember to allow the healing to occur in you, as well.

Fairy Tale Friday: Two Wolves (Cherokee)

laurabruno:

I am woman, hear me HOWL. Though written for women, this feminine take on The Two Wolves offers value for men, too, in that we all have a wild woman inside ourselves — a wise one who knows how to wield power in ways that transcend bombs, drones and surveilled phones. Who knows how to heal the deepest, darkest wounds that no one else knows how to find. Thank you, Amanda! I got goosebumps hearing your howl.

“A healthy woman is much like a wolf: robust, chock-full, strong life force, life-giving, territorially aware, inventive, loyal, roving.”  – Clarissa Pinkola Estes

Happy Fairy Tale Friday! This week’s story is an old Native American tale, but true to Dreamrly style, I am giving it a good punch-up with a modern “feminine power” twist. Wolves and women have always felt deeply connected to me, and any strong handmade feminist knows that what some consider “our bible”….Women Who Run with the Wolves,” by Clarissa Pinkola Estes, in founded on the idea that women and wolves are inextricably linked.

Let’s get right to it….

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people.

He said: ‘My son, the battle is between ‘two wolves’ inside us all.

One is Evil. It is anger, envy…

Iceland !!! Thanks to R.

laurabruno:

Thanks to Jean for posting these gorgeous photos! Is it any wonder so many people in Iceland believe in elves and consult the elves before proceeding on building and road projects? Surrounded by such stunning beauty, it is easy to see why Icelanders remember to honor sovereignty of both land and soul.
