Three ways

In Being present, Change, inspiration on February 27, 2013 at 4:55 am

 

Each of us has something to contribute to the evolving group consciousness. We carefully nurture thoughts to produce right action and right communication; in this way we offer encouragement where it is needed, silence where it’s beneficial, and action where it’s necessary.  Sometimes, however, we get it wrong.  We offer silence when action is more appropriate or perform action when encouragement would have been better.  As we review our thoughts we can see clearly that motivation must align with clarity of purpose. Let’s keep our minds open, our hearts engaged and have faith that the right action or thought, or non-action, will arise as required.

I have assembled some examples of encouragement, silence and action, and am allowing the presence of each to suggest its teaching to us all.  Let’s begin with encouragement.  Those among us involved with children and education will see the inspiration in creating a paradigm shift.  Here’s a good review: education shift.  In food production there are many wonderful stories that aren’t being told.  Here’s one of them:the Indian rice revolution.  A most useful tool is evolving with the Occupy energy: Occupy directory.  I’ve posted this before, but it’s worth repeating: Moving Art Gratitude, which also resembles this:Milky Way meets volcanoes
Silence is what may occur when we have reached a plateau of understanding:electricity from flowers attract bees. Sometimes we must stop thinking and allow ourselves to absorb the significance of what may have been known intuitively.  Silence may also emerge the moment we realize that something is deeply wrong: software tracking your moves sold to FBI ; who controls the world?  and this documentary which I recommend to all: apology of an economic hitman.  Silence can be the response when, despite knowing the problem, we are unable to respond: BC’s sacred headwaters.
Action can arise spontaneously in response to a situation:  take back your power, which is retired Canadian Navy captain’s effort to educate Canadians about smart meter, cell phone and EMR threats.  Or, action can be a more sustained effort to change an existing paradigm: alternative currency goes mainstream: bitcoins; anyone concerned with monetary reform will be inspired by bitcoin’s increasing acceptance.  Finally, action can be courageous and inspirational: gratitude for saving 669 lives
How far that little candle throws his beams! So shines a good deed in a weary world.William Shakespeare

Revealing our intentions

In Communication, Transparency on February 5, 2013 at 3:15 am

When we review the intent of our communication, we may realize that the messages we send are tailored for the audience.  In addition,  if we scrutinize further, we may also discover an attempt to manipulate our audience by excluding information, exaggerating points, or skewing the message with incorrect language.  Our intentions at communicating become entangled with falsity the moment we consciously choose to withhold, distort or misrepresent the truth for our own purposes.  It is exceptionally important for enlightened individuals and communities to monitor the mind so as to halt effort at manipulation the moment it is formed as a thought.  We must retain control over our communication if we are to dwell peacefully with each other.  In any case, the more sensitive amongst us will discern untruth, and the tendrils of trust between two entities will be damaged.  Let’s be mindful of our intentions on every impulse to connect with one another, and carefully choose our words so as to nurture our healed community.

In order to fully realize the negative effect of manipulated communication, please review the following links. The first link is a must-read for any of us who have ever taken a prescription drug.  Further, it is recommended reading for all who believe in the integrity of the scientific process: Lies, omissions and half-truths being prescribed.  In mainstream media (MSM) we are subjected to advertising, which is generally recognizable, but increasingly we are tricked into reading  (unidentified) sponsored stories.  The workplace reflects an ill-defined ‘agreement’ between employee and employer.  This excellent article is worth reading to the end, especially if you are female or have ever been exploited at work: the rise of the permanent temporary worker. Finally, there was an exit of 114 billion dollars from banks in January-read this to learn how it’s being explained: the mystery of the missing $$$.
The continued polarization in information management is well-illustrated in the Smart Meter campaign.  Please look at this link to see how two moms were treated during their effort to limit their exposure: the smart meter spin.  Further to the first link in today’s message, after learning that science is not being practiced in pharmacological research, it will not surprise the reader to learn that American health worst of nearly all industrialized countries.  The close link between corporate policy and health is indicated in this review of chocolate, cheese, meat and sugar.
These last links are more inspirational.  The first is a push-back against the divisiveness of standardized educational testing: seattle teacher uprising.  While the next video documents the moment one realizes the preposterous position of false reality: enlightened laughter.
