As things speed up, and intensity seems to increase without stopping-so much going on in our own lives and in the world-it is important to ground ourselves, to rest enough and be centered, to re-connect with what is most real. Don’t forget to breathe thru your roots;-)
Add your thoughts here… (optional)
I think this one is a big thing for most people, at least most I have known including me-I am open in so many ways but isn’t there always something special we say “don’t mess with that thing, let that stay the same-Please!”? It all comes back to being able to trust in ourselves, and trust completely in Creator/Universe/ Goddess/God(insert your personal term for the Great Mystery here;-)

Detachment is one of our hardest lessons, especially when it involves someone or something we care deeply about. It is easy to detach from things we can easily release, or practice acceptance with someone whose actions do not touch our hearts.
In those cases we say ‘this and not that’, give me the lesson but don’t involve this person, open the doors to a new opportunity but don’t take me out of my comfort zone, let me separate from this situation but don’t let it impact that person. But we have to take a different approach if we are to manifest from a place of wholeness and be open to limitlessness.

6 Inspiring Eco-Friendly Initiatives from the Small Island of Sardinia
Guest writer for Wake Up World
Despite being a relatively small island in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea, Sardinia’s natives are proving very enterprising when it comes to environmental protection. Immediately translating into a higher quality lifestyle, a more sustainable economy means cleaner air, lush vegetation and healthier and safer produce. Last but not least, since food plays a pivotal role in Italian society, eco-friendly initiatives are thriving all around the country.
Here are six of the main ones in the region of Sardinia.
1. Ischìda, an eco-friendly lifestyle
Nicola Pirina and Pierluigi Merlin are the founders of Ischìda, a company focused on innovation and sustainability. A 360-degree sustainability, actually. Their office is 100 per cent eco-friendly: they use renewable energy, such as wind power and photovoltaic system, and paper, recycled…

When I was a graduate assistant I read a piece by Edward Said that came to a similar conclusion. I recommend anyone who wants to add to their understanding of this situation without all the rhetoric and random stuff the mainstream news adds(and the important stuff they leave out) look up the scholar Edward Said and read some of his work. Thanks to Jean for sharing the video-I can’t watch them but am sharing for those who can. Another great article I will try to find and post was on Palestine and aparthied, the structural similarities are quite striking.
I think the biggest lie that is finally being laid to rest is that anyone who opposes the mistreatment of the Palestinian people is anti-Semitic(or more accurately anti-Jewish since all Arabs are Semites). I was informed of the problem by an Israeli Peace activist, and more and more Israeli’s are joining peace movements and Occupy Israel and making it very VERY plain that NOT IN THEIR NAME all this killing and oppression. Just like what happens in America, all of this(violence, wall building, settlements etc) causes nothing but trouble and suffering for the Israeli people-not surprisingly they KNOW this.
Please join me in praying for peace, and sending love and healing to all involved. When any in the circle are broken, the circle is not whole-we are all Israeli and Palestinian, we are all One. One Love, One People.
When the elites refuse to listen to the people, when they insist on destroying the Earth and other living things for greed, it seems only just and right that they should be stopped-as usual by only harmless property damage tho I am sure the developers and government will claim the protesters are now “terrorists”.
In reality they are heroes and heroines taking the necessary risks so many of us cannot, or will not take, in defense of Mother Earth and the people whose lands are being taken and destroyed, and all the living things being harmed.

Work on Brazil’s controversial $13 billion Belo Monte mega-dam ground to a halt Monday after protesters torched buildings at three dam construction sites over the weekend, the developer said.
Saturday, “a group of 30 people set fire to prefab structures at the Pimental site. They went into the cafeteria, destroyed everything and robbed the till” before setting it ablaze, said Fernando Santana, spokesman for builders Consorcio Constructor Belo Monte (CCBM).
And late Sunday, groups of 20 people set structures ablaze at Canais and Diques, two other dam construction sites, said Santana.

I would like this proposal better if it included giving the sovereign Native Nations within the borders of Texas their own sovereignty and freedom from BOTH the newly formed crazy texan country AND the US. It would solve the problem of the border being another excuse to beat up, arrest and otherwise harass innocent Native people. Trying to imagine a state with the Koch bros, The Donald, Murdoch etc all in one place, with people who learn in schools where they are taught the Earth is 4000 years old.
I am guessing this will NOT be a popular tourist destination, the oil coated Gulf beaches of TX not withstanding…..;-)
“WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:
Peacefully grant the State of _____ to withdraw from the United States of America & create its own NEW government
As the founding fathers of the United States of America made clear in the Declaration of Independence in 1776:
“When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.”
“…Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to…

I really like this message, and Aisha’s message below that says much the same thing. I was feeling exactly this a few days ago, but now as has been typical, the cyclical nature of change seems to be affecting me in the opposite direction. Given these messages and the many comments agreeing, it appears this down cycle will quickly pass. I wanted to share it when I posted this tho, in case any of you are also experiencing a bit of cognitive dissonance with these, when your own world is feeling not quite so joyous or celebratory just yet. We are all experiencing our own rhythms and cycles, as well as the larger cycles of the Earth-so if your timing isn’t precisely the same, don’t panic;-)

From Global Research…
The Petraeus Affair has demonstrated yet again how a sex scandal story can be fed into the U.S. media to serve both as a trigger to a “political assassination” and as “the tree hiding the forest.” Even though what lies behind the salacious smoke screen is still the object of speculation, most of those speculations are more credible than a simple extramarital affair.
One of the possible explanations of Petraeus’ departure is his stance on Israel which he saw as a liability to US interests in the Middle East:
“The enduring hostilities between Israel and some of its neighbors present distinct challenges to our ability to advance our interests in the AOR [Area of Operations]. Israeli-Palestinian tensions often flare into violence and large-scale armed confrontations. The conflict foments anti-American sentiment, due to a perception of U.S. favoritism for Israel. congressional testimony over the Palestinian question…
