Your Invitation to an Energy Transmission/Prayer for Freedom

Your Invitation to an Energy Transmission/Prayer for Freedom

As you are likely aware, some of the people in power (or as I prefer to say “like to think they are in power”) never seem satisfied with what they have. They are obsessed with making money and gaining even more power, and asserting control. Think of these people as the ones who like: the Trans-Pacific Partnership; endless wars (because they make money and get laws passed that get them more control); and knowing everything about you and controlling everything you do. This is part of the “Patriarchal” mentality that has been with us for quite some time. This energy transmission/prayer seeks to go against those efforts. Most of us, irrespective of our religious beliefs or level of commitment to one or another religion, know how to pray. You have likely prayed for yourself and your loved ones at one time or another in your life. Hopefully, you have made prayer a regular part of your life.

When you commit to loving then no matter what happens to the relationship you “win”. Whether you stay together or not, you grow, evolve and expand. What you can offer is the most authentic expression of your heart to your lover, moment to moment, with the intention of growing together.

Empathy – Our Power to Melt Separation

Empathy – Our Power to Melt Separation

Empathy allows us to make a psychic and emotional connection with another person, to actually enter into their mind-space. The separateness between you and the other person fades away. Your ‘self-boundary’ melts away, so that in a sense – or to an extent – you become them.

Unifying the Global Peace Movement – Challenges and Solutions

There are shiny examples of individuals acting as soldiers of peace within the peace movement. But collectively, as a movement, we need to re-evaluate the methods we use and the firmness we carry. To finally accept the cost in our hearts, we need to pay for the abolition of all weapons, whether of mass destruction or conventional, to finally abolish war itself before war abolishes us.

Project Censored #25: “Chaptered Out”: US Military Seeks to Balance Budget on Backs of Disabled Veterans”

The US military has been engaged in a policy of forcing wounded and disabled veterans out of service to avoid paying benefits and to make room for new able-bodied recruits. Identifying injured combat soldiers as delinquent and negligent has lead to a practice called “chaptering out” which results in those soldiers being forced to leave the military without an honorable discharge. Because of this, thousands of soldiers have been chaptered out, losing federally sponsored benefits including health care, unemployment, and educational programs.

TPP Negotiators Hit With Protests That Media Don’t Cover

Shouldn’t it be a trade violation to threaten to move someone’s job to another country? Shouldn’t we negotiate trade agreements that increase people’s wages on both sides of a trade border? These are the kinds of agreements we would make if We the People were negotiating trade agreements with representatives of the working people in other countries.
