Chaos Theory Shows World Peace is Attainable

Chaos Theory Shows World Peace is Attainable

The world is an amazing and beautiful place. The only thing going on here is as a species we are not aligned with peace; which believe it or not is our natural state of being as it is for all living things in nature, including Mother Earth herself. Everywhere we look we see famine, war, suffering and meaningless cruelty. But if we pan wide…if we just zoom out from our limited perspectives and try to catch a glimpse from a global or even universal view if we so dare, we just might see that great healing is occurring on this planet.

Immigrants Aren’t the Emergency—Unchecked Capitalism Is

In situations of growing desperation, it’s natural to want to blame someone or some group of people, especially when our loudest leaders are constantly presenting us with an enemy to focus on. We’ve been inundated with messages in the last three years inciting us to blame immigrants for all our troubles, whether it’s lack of jobs or the cost of health care. Baloney. We all know that our system of unchecked capitalism is to blame. #istandwithimmigrants

Prophets For-Profit: The Cost of Self-Righteous Repentance

Prophets For-Profit: The Cost of Self-Righteous Repentance

I am not a spokesperson or poster child for ANY religion, dogma, etc., but as I read somewhere within the innerscape of Facebook memes…”If you spend enough time with me, I’ll brainwash you into thinking for yourself.” This could not be truer. In my experience, people grow and flourish when they are validated, accepted, shown love and kindness, and are only nudged one way or the other when they actually SEEK to be nudged.

Historic Moment for Equality in India as Millions Link Arms to Form 400-Mile “Women’s Wall”

A day after millions of women stood together in the Indian state to form a nearly 400-mile-long human chain to call for equality, two women made history—and sparked protests and a call for a state-wide shutdown—when they entered the #Sabarimala temple in the state of Kerala in the early hours Wednesday. They were the first women to enter the holy Hindu site since a ban on women of menstrual age was lifted just over three months ago, as protests have blocked others from entering previously. #womenswall

And while it might go unnoticed to some people, or even be considered confusing or annoying to others, people like this always catch my attention. But not only during the holiday season, for a patient and peaceful spirit is one that is recognizable all year long…

Yemen Remains on the Precipice of a Large-Scale Famine

Yemen Remains on the Precipice of a Large-Scale Famine

A new study shows the “terrible tragedy” in its full scale: 67 percent of Yemen’s population needs “urgent action to save lives and livelihoods.” That means that 20 million Yemenis are vulnerable to death. A quarter of a million of these Yemenis are “on the brink of starvation.” The study points out that “armed conflict remains the main driver of food insecurity in Yemen.” That’s an obvious point, but it needs to be made. The war on Yemen has to end to prevent the near-death of the Yemeni people. #yemencantwait

This Holiday Season, I’m Standing With Migrants

Caravan participants I met expressed so much faith — both in God and the idea that United States is a place that embraces those fleeing violence and poverty. What else can they do in the face of such an existential threat but hope and pray for a chance for their families to live? In the season when many celebrate the birth of a child whose family had to flee to another country to keep him alive, what does our shared humanity demand from parents making the same difficult choice today? #standwithmigrants
