A common space for harmonic peacemakers
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.
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…
“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…
A blessed and safe Pesach to all my friends who are celebrating. May light and grace fill your homes on this passoveriest Passover of recent memory, and may this special season lead to a beautiful renewal of life for us all.
Tell me: how is this night different
From all other nights?

Dear friends ~ a thoughtful poem to read and consider as we traverse this time of disruption together.
What if… the virus is here to help us?
What if we subscribe to the philosophy that life is always working out for us?
That there is an intelligence far greater than humans at work. That all is interconnected.
To reset. To remember. What is truly important.
Reconnecting with family and community.
I think we should also start a global trend that says 'Thank You' to all the people who are enabling us to stay at home. The food producers, the warehouse workers, the van drivers, the supermarket staff. the Pharmacy staff, the hospital staff, the social welfare staff, the many many many unseen people working behind the scenes still keeping things ticking over so the majority of people can stay at home. And also be aware of the people who are at home with no income or financial support…Continue

NEW YORK (WABC) -- Imagine this: thousands of people joining together to form a human peace sign.
It happened in Central Park's East Meadow Tuesday afternoon, all in tribute to John Lennon.
The crowd included everyone from aging hippies to schoolchildren not yet born when Lennon died:

There was once a businessman who was sitting by the beach in a small Brazilian village.
As he sat, he saw a Brazilian fisherman rowing a small boat towards the shore having caught quite few big fish.
The businessman was impressed and asked the fisherman, “How long does it take you to catch so many fish?”

¨Today we are faced with a challenge that calls for a shift in our thinking, so that humanity stops threatening its life-support system. We are called to assist the Earth to heal her wounds and in the process heal our own – indeed to embrace the whole of creation in all its diversity, beauty and wonder. ¨…Continue

The world without spirit is a wasteland. People have the notion of saving the world by shifting things around, changing the rules and who's on top, and so forth. No, no! Any world is a valid world if it's alive. The thing to do is to…Continue

"Everything under heaven is a sacred vessel and cannot be controlled.
Trying to control leads to ruin. Trying to grasp.. we lose.
Allow your life to unfold naturally.
Know that it too is a vessel of perfection.
Just as you breathe…

"What if our religion was each other. If our practice was our life. If prayer, our words. What if the temple was the Earth. If forests were our church. If holy ...water--the rivers, lakes, and ocean. What if meditation was our relationships. If the teacher was life. If wisdom was self-knowledge. If love was the center of our being."
This is a memorial to the truth that real facts matter:
Over a third of Americans now don’t believe that over 6 million Jews were killled in the Holocaust, but on 2 July 1942, 82 children from Lidice -- a small village in Czechoslovakia -- were transferred to the Łódź Gestapo office. Those 82 boys and girls were then transported to an extermination…Continue

I had a dream tonight.
Me and Arnie himself were out in the jungle hunting for the predator. We lit a fire to attract it out of its hiding. We ran and hid a distance away were we could watch it move towards the fire.
After some few seconds, Arnold shouted to me as he took off, “run for your life its coming this way”
I happened to have a cloak which makes me invisible. I pulled it to cover my self. Poor Arnie didn't know that i had my secret weapon so he had to depend…Continue

A man always walked past a prostitute that held a placard saying 20,000 shillings for a night on his way back home after work.

“20,000 shillings only? you peddle your body for only that? get a man and get married, you cheap slut” he said and moved on. The prostitute stayed…Continue
