The more unnatural we get, it may well be that the unhappier we get as well... Carolyn is retired and who loves the nomadic life! She found she can have a much better quality of life by living in a van and also travel at the same time! She graciously shares with us the details of how she makes it work and how satisfying it can be!
She's shocked how much ease she has, how calm & at peace...
Don’t be shocked-- though thousands were-- on social media earlier this month. This “dead whale” is made of plastic debris found in the ocean, made to increase awareness on ocean pollution in response, in part, to the 30 beached whales found on seashores last year.
Protest, I know-- or at least truth- telling-- has a place and is needed (perhaps) to help heal the world’s injustice, but more heartening to me are the positive and creative reactions such as these. Even my own local Surfrider is involved in reusing and recycling the nasty waste into art, cleaning up debris and creating statements of heart & beauty from the rubble...
"YOU CAN KILL ME IF YOU LIKE.. but you cannot stop the emancipation of women!" That's what Tahirih said after she threw off her veil in 1848 Persia.
Here's more of that inspiring story.
In the end, they did put an end to this strong, amazing woman whose legacy continues. She lived at the convergence of two powerful faith teachings. So many wonders brought to earth started with amazing Masters such as she and the Ones who inspired her. She was battered, but it didn't stop her truth from flowing. For those who may reject the source of this great transformation, begun then and now continuing, I have no objection to that--it is the privilege of freedom!!
Community & Unity built on spiritual foundations
What other way is there to save this ailing world ?
Its a vision of "an alternative society which is not based on greed and competition, but rather on cooperation and service to community members... spreading to a world-wide community mainly by actions of inspired youth." *

Now if that is not inspiring, what could be ?!!
Its true that this is begun by a somewhat "organized religion", which is a bone to pick for many, This faith has been one that's so purposeful, unusual &inspired as to throw its resources to empower all humanity. There's no other group so highly motivated to let go of nature's strong attachments to its own, to its ownership of sources or promotion of its name. And that is truly happening! Surely the name and source are vital, but they are not the center-- Simply, if this world is to beunified and healed, then someone's got to start it, and pour into it their all !
I FOUND MYSELF thinking--
Just how great it is to be a part of the most healing, cutting edge, amazing movement ever on the earth!!! :))
I believe this is one small representative of that much bigger picture, opening a door to something hugely bigger ... Clearly its not be be- all, end- all-search for everyone, but truly, I (and most of us in this) believe it's the starting point of the biggest, healthiest transformation ever to captivate & motivate the people of the world. For those who would investigate it, there is much support for that. For those who don't, well only time will tell.
