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

Why Should Child Slavery Matter to You?

Why Should Child Slavery Matter to You?

Imagine your childhood without school, without your family, forced to work in physically demanding jobs… this is the life of a child exploited. But, we believe that every child has a right to live a real childhood. Freeing the millions of children affected by this is a huge task, but one man, Kailash Satyarthi, has dedicated his life to ending child slavery. So far, he and his foundation have helped free 88,000 children from forced labor. We still have a long way to go, but even the smallest amounts of help are crucial. If you would like to be a part of the movement, you can click the blue donate button to contribute. Tune in on November 27 to watch the feature film documentary ‘The Price of Free’, here on SoulPancake.

Your Solar Plexus: First Impressions are Usually Right

First impressions are usually accurate because your energy field is picking up on the other energy fields emissions  and doing a quick and smart analysis of intent. When you get an uneasy feeling — it’s a sure sign that although the persons smile, words, resume and actions might be polished (and completely fake), their inherent nature is lacking somehow.

Frances Moore Lappé: Hope’s 3 Essentials For a Real Democracy in America, and All Are Present

Frances Moore Lappé: In today’s America, social scientists’ hard data reveal that there is “near zero” relationship between what most Americans want and public policies Congress enacts. With the bedrock of democracy so violated, what does it take for citizens to step up? Well, here’s my second claim: All it takes for humans to leap into action is that enough of us believe just three things, each based in real evidence.

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.

Spirit Led Activism – The True Power Of The People

The spiritual activist is our natural state of pre mind controlled being. The being who has not been pacified by indoctrination to the ways of the status quo. Who has not sought to identify with the spirit alone – or with the warrior alone – but quite naturally finds that he/she is, by sheer dint of being human, is both these. How our world would rejoice should this breed of actor emerge at the forefront of the affairs of man!

Growing Calls for US to Stop Fueling Saudi Bombings of Yemeni Children

After the U.S.-backed Saudi-led coalition issued a statement on Saturday calling its deadly bombing of a Yemeni school bus “unjustified” and claiming it was the result of mere “mistakes,” human rights groups and progressive lawmakers ramped up calls for the U.S. to immediately halt all arms sales to Saudi Arabia, which has been viciously bombing Yemen for years.
