The Flicker of Truth

 

July 15, 2014

 

This new age flickers

Off the wings of a bee

The Queen arises judiciously

Sweeping clean the King’s polluted feet

 

Expressing the depths of Her darkness

The purpose of the Queen’s flight

Is to birth an illuminating light

Thus is the new King revealed to our sight

Envisioning a Peaceful World with Charles Eisenstein

My wife and I will be interviewing author and what I would call a man who is interested in sparking the evolution of humankind, Charles Eisenstein.  I’ve read three of his books, Sacred Economics, The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know is Possible, and The Ascent of Humanity.

Charles envisions this:  By embracing our interconnectedness with all being on earth, we can change the world. Yes, we can have peace!

Charles is one of the seminal and pioneering storytellers of the new world. He explains how “fully embracing and practicing the principle of interconnectedness” will help us transcend our planetary crisis and have a positive influence on the world.. His latest book, The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know Is Possible, serves as an empowering antidote to the cynicism, frustration, paralysis, and overwhelm so many of us are feeling. Charles reminds us that we are all connected, and our small, personal choices bear unsuspected transformational power.

Charles reveals how our culture’s guiding narrative of separation has generated our current crises. He shows us how we can change that narrative by telling the real-life stories of courage, kindness, and self-trust. He brings to conscious awareness a deep wisdom we all innately know: “Until we get selves in order, any action we take—no matter how good our intentions—will ultimately be wrongheaded and wronghearted.”

Joanna Macy, author of Active Hope says that he offers us “a rich feast for mind and heart.” Vicki Robin, author of Your Money or Your Life says, “He isn’t just describing a possible world. He is helping us find our way to it.” We are deeply honored to have this visionary guest with us to discuss how we can become more effective agents of change and have a stronger positive influence on the world.

PS: We have a copy of the book for the first person to call in during this live episode(646-652-2235).

Driven To Write

Goddess Creating

Goddess Creating

December 26, 2010

I am driven to write

I simply can’t see straight

For I’ m driven to write

 

Nobody reads

Or takes me seriously

Yet I am driven to write

 

Rewards, they say,

Increase the probability

Of behaving a certain way

 

Then why, dear B.S. Skinner

Do I continue to write

Regardless what you say?

 

Control of behavior

A tyrant’s greed

 

What of an inner urge

Not giving a rat’s ass

About theories presented by thee

that shall ultimately pass gas.

 

 

A Quick and Dirty (not in a Sexual manner!) Reflection on Steven Jones and the Gaian Web

In addition to writing, I work with my wife on an online radio show called Envision This!  This show is hosted by Blog Talk radio.  In our show, I am fascinated regarding the threads of change that are in the air. IN ancient Goddess spiritualities, the Great Mother, who is all of Nature, including OUR Nature, spins a web tying everything together. This weaving is reinforced in biologist James Lovelock’s Gaia Hypothesis.

This morning I posted a blog regarding Seven Jones of Antioch College of New England (located in New Hampshire).  Interesting how “New” everything was for those that conquered the Native American lands; which, to the Natives, were pretty old.  Yet, as I muse about this “New England,” even though school reported that the colonists wanted a new life; it appears they wanted the same ole shit on a different day.  Thus the political and institutionalized religious structures of the old were made anew in the land of America.

It was here in America that we continued the slaughter of the traditional peoples and instituted philosophies of transcending Nature such as reductionism, rationalism and all other fantasies of thought that has been used to control our minds, souls, bodies and even bladders.  Yes, sir re, we just needed to be lead by the “Man on the Pulpit,” be he in the form of priest, preacher, guru, president, congress, or judge.  The psychiatrist Eric Fromm was aware of this dynamic.  He wrote a book titled, Escape from Freedom.  Now, why in the hell do we want to escape from freedom?  Is it truly easier for us to surrender our Souls to the “man behind the curtain?”  Could the Wizard also be all of us who are hiding our true self and humanness behind a curtain of facade?

Oh, that’s another blog!

This Gian pattern is also by people such as Steve Jones. Indeed, in reading, researching and speaking to people like him, and people like Charles Eisenstein, the web, for me becomes more and more clear.

This movement is huge and growing larger!  Not only is Eisenstein aware of it, but author Anne Baring in her Dream of the Cosmos:  A Quest for the Soul.  

The more I study this and talk with people like Jones, the more I see the weaving hands of Nature. Yes, those hands are silent and subtle”.but they are there screaming at us to awaken to The Pattern”.both in terms of the Soul Suppressing pattern of Western Civilization and the Pattern of Awakening that is taking hold on this planet.

If truth be known, we ARE the Sleeping Beauty knocked unconscious by Vanity (i.e., mirror, mirror on the wall, who IS the fairest of them all.). Is it time that we become lovers of Love Himself? Is He truly external to us or is He at the foundations of our Being? No vanity there. Only the ecstasy of Love.

Ok, enough talk.  If you’re interested in listening:
