A common space for harmonic peacemakers

READING TIME: 3 MINUTES
Buddha was born as his mother leaned against a tree for support. He attained enlightenment seated beneath a tree and passed away as trees stood witness overhead. If Buddha were to return to our world, he would certainly be connected to the campaign to protect…Continue
a great read that makes perfect sense.. https://caitlinjohnstone.com/2020/08/31/meditations-on-peace/
the impulse that drives artistic expression is irrational, unconditioned, and impersonal. it is beyond the grasp of reason and its constructions, which allows it to make the being resonate at frequencies that reason is not able to reach, and thus initiate it into experiences that are beyond his comprehension.

RIP John Lewis. Your firey sensibility to the injustices of this world compelled you to fearlessly stand up and speak as one powerful, lion-like voice for so many. You will never be forgotten.
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
I would like to thank you all for your greetings on the occasion of my 85th birthday, as well as those who took part in celebrating the day in many parts of the world. I am touched by your affection.
I am in good health and look forward to live long to continue being of some service to humanity.
In the world in which we live today, nations are no longer isolated and self-sufficient as they once were. We have all become…Continue

Even though Tibet is still not free, what a marvelous blessing that nearly every educated person in this whole world knows the tragedy of Tibet, isn’t that so? For that, we are grateful, and it has been accomplished in perhaps only 20 or 30 years.
We also wish His Holiness the Dalai Lama a very long life, so that his efforts on the…Continue
Nelson Mandela: "After I became president, I asked one day some members of my close protection to stroll with me in the city, have lunch at one of its restaurants. We sat in one of the downtown restaurants and all of us asked for some sort of food."
"After a while, the waiter brought us our requests, I noticed that there is someone…

When we feed our Egos, we starve our souls! The material world we live in thrives on feeding our egos and
starving our souls. That is why there is no soul in anything we do. Praying and going to temples and churches
too has become more food for the ego rather than the soul. We need to find ways to feed our souls and starve
our egos if we want our civilization to be meaningful.
Essentially written in one day in March 2013, « One Of A Kind » is an upbeat folk pop summer song about meeting someone who turns out to have special significance in one's life, and eventually becoming so close as to form a kind of unit with them.
Ultimately, it's also about how every encounter, whether apparently desirable or otherwise, actually contributes to one's growth and to finding one's place in the grand scheme of things.
Here are the lyrics…

Japa, Japa, Japa,... Let the wheel of the name of the God go around in the midst of all activities. All the burning of the heart will be soothed. Don't you know how many sinners have become pure and free and divine by taking refuge in the name of God

Another deep, deep heartache. George Floyd, an unarmed innocent black man, is dead, killed by a white police officer whose duty is to “serve and protect.” Racism and bigotry in America fueled by the current administration’s constant promotion of White…Continue

What is happening in the US today, and in many other parts of the world, is pathetic, painful and disgusting. The inability of civilized human beings to get along in this modern age is shameful. The burden for this lies heavily on the White race and, to a lesser degree on the people of color.
As long as the Whites refuse to acknowledge and atone for the historic plunder and pillage of the rest of the world the wounds will fester. The foundation for the affluence today is built on the…Continue
Question: I feel mind is like a monkey which wavers, making concentration difficult during prayers or chanting. How do I overcome this?
Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji:
The elephant cannot keep its trunk stationary. It keeps swaying it always. In order to arrest its movement, the mahout gives it a huge chain to hold on to. Similarly, in order for the mind to concentrate, we have it focus on the divine Name and Form of the Lord. That is the basic…Continue

This is Timeless....really touched my soul. This poem was written in 1869, reprinted during 1919 Pandemic.
It was written by Kathleen O’Mara:
And people stayed at home
And read books

“An Open Letter to the President”
From Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee:
Dear Fucking Lunatic,
At your recent press conference – more a word salad that had a stroke and fell down stairs, you were CLEARLY so out of your depth you needed scuba gear. Within minutes of going off air your minions were backpedaling faster than…
I am posting this simple article because its the very clearest I've seen on this subject that affects us all.

This is amazing!
Hear and be amazed at the unique nature of the world.
I wish you can enjoy it....
tell me i did not dive in way too deep
and that i will find the relief i seek
when bells toll the time to jump off the peak
say that there will be faith to take the leap
although i've walked the path of oracles
and seen you've kept the oath you'd said you'd keep
when the fruits will be close enough to reap
will i really believe in miracles
did your plan really include that last turn
or did i miss a lesson on the road
will there some day…
