Edward Snowden –a hero

“If I am traitor, who did I betray?” he asked. “I gave all my information to the American public, to American journalists who are reporting on American issues. If they see that as treason, I think people really need to consider who they think they’re working for. The public is supposed to be their boss, not their enemy. Beyond that as far as my personal safety, I’ll never be fully safe until these systems have changed.” Edward Snowden

Barbara Boxer Kicks Ass in the Senate

The speech is glorious. Boxer is speaking not only for Democrats, she is speaking out for Americans. Her words are rousing and affirming much like those in the speeches of Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont) and Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts). Republican extremists are getting away with the closet thing to treason many of us have seen in our lifetimes. And it’s not only betrayal against the President, it’s betrayal against the U.S. Constitution and the tax-payers/citizens. ~ Leslie Salzillo, Daily Kos

ENOUGHNESS: Restoring Balance to the Economy

Western world view (individual, fearful, competition) vs. Indigenous (in balance with the whole, community)


Water in a landscape is a fascinating thing as well. I often think that water is the tears of the earth’s joy and sadness. Every kind of water in a landscape has a different kind of tonality and a different kind of presence to it. You think of the stillness of a well, of the energy of a stream, of the totality of the ocean or the singularity and memory of a river. I also think that trees are incredible presences. There is incredible symmetry in a tree, between its inner life and its outer life, between its rooted memory and its external active presence. A tree grows up and grows down at once and produces enough branches to incarnate its wild divinity. It doesn’t limit itself – it reaches for the sky and it reaches for the source, all in one seamless kind of movement. So I think landscape is an incredible, mystical teacher, and when you begin to tune into its sacred presence, something shifts inside you. ~~ John O’Donohue from “Walking on the Pastures of Wonder” scheduled for first release (Ireland) on March 12, 2015

The Seventh Generation Rises!

We need everybody. Not one person can do it alone. I can’t do it alone. The elders can’t do it alone. They need young people to get on board. And we need our voices to come together as one. ~ Inez Jasper

Before you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day this year…

I just read The Real Irish American Story Not Taught in Schools and two things come to mind. At last I finally understand something I wish I had learned earlier–in school perhaps? And secondly, another reminder that the elites have no regard for others. Their domination must not be tolerated.
