The manuscript of survival – part 376

Thank you Aisha and CC’s. It is hard to get used to the cycling nature of this journey-the return to ordinary painful reality after reaching within to see so much more but having these wonderful reminders that it IS a journey and not a truly solitary one despite the way it must be accomplished. I am so grateful for all of you and all that you are all doing both within and out in the world to heal our world.

The times they are a-changin’ is a tune many of you will be familiar with, and this is indeed exactly what is going on now. You might not be fully able to literally tune into the full extent of what we are referring to at the moment, but as with everything, it will become clearer for you as you manage to fully embrace all of your inherent faculties. So again we say, this is in all aspects very much an inner journey, one that needs to be taken in solitude, but also one that needs to be shared in a way that will enable both yourself and others to better see the path ahead.

For this is in many ways the underlying reason for all of this ceaseless stream of information we deliver. It is not only to give you a heads up as it were on what is going…

10 Reasons Why Republican Leaders Don’t Like Pope Francis

Thank you for posting this! I’ve often wondered how the otherwise moral and church devoted people I know who vote republican can do so. Many seem more concerned with controlling others (ie gay marriage, abortion etc) than with what Jesus actually said to us was important. It confuses me, especially when they are people I respect and care about. I hope the hatefulness will drive moral people to question their allegiance to such things.

List of X

Since his election in early 2013, Pope Francis has made quite a few controversial statements. For example, in his recent writings, Francis criticized the excesses of free market, the “idolatry of money”, and called for measures alleviating poverty and wealth inequality – all of which happens to be anathema to modern conservative gospel.  And finally, some prominent conservative pundits, like Rush Limbaugh and Sarah Palin, (who apparently believe they have a guaranteed admission to Heaven), have found the courage to disagree with the Holy See’s heresy.  Here are 10 Republican complaints about Pope Francis.

1)  “Pope criticized the free market, and as we all know, Jesus was an early advocate of the free market.  Don’t you remember the biblical story about Jesus driving money-changers out of the temple, so that their enterprise won’t be restricted by the temple’s walls?”

2)  “Did you know that the Pope washed the feet of criminals?…

The European Red Cross and Red Crescent societies are seeing a worrying poverty trend across the continent, in some areas reaching WWII proportions

Thank you for posting this. Having personally experienced going without food on many occasions, giving up eating so someone I lived could eat and scavenging food from trash out of necessity I can attest that this is not just an EU problem. And it is crushing to the spirits of those so deprived. Being considered by your fellow human beings as undeserving of basic sustenance is a harsh blow to ones self value and hope. Going without food causes one to feel cold more keenly, and to feel tired and depressed no matter how cheerful one’s attitude may be.

The European Red Cross and Red Crescent societies are seeing a worrying poverty trend across the continent, in some areas reaching WWII proportions, Anitta Underlin, European director of the Red Cross told RT.


RT:Poverty has struck the European Union – about 43 million people suffer from material poverty. Why is the crisis so severe now?

Anitta Underlin: What we have seen since we did our first survey in 2009 and until 2013 is that the crisis is really taking root at the community level, at individual level and at household level to a different degree.

Because people today have used all of their savings, there is nothing…

Earth R Us: Biospheres, ecological awareness, and whether or not we’re ready for space travel

Thank you for posting this and for your wonderful blog every day. When I became too ill a few years ago to continue my studies, career and activism I worried about not being able to do. I am so grateful every day now as I keep finding books, blogs like yours, groups and projects that show me hundreds of people not only doing what I set out to do-but doing it better. To you, Ann who writes exopermaculture nlog, and to all of you reading this-thank you for all that you do and please keep doing the magic individual to each of you. It is working, even if it is not yet widely visible; our world is healing, being reborn lit by your love, prayers and actions.

Report: Disguised Pope Francis sneaks out of Vatican for night charity patrols

It lifts my heart to see the same church that is implicated in so much corruption, suppression of truth, molestation of innocent children (and cover-up of same) as well as being a major player in the worldwide genocide of indigenous peoples, suppression of their culture and theft of their lands now being led by a man who refuses to play the age old games of the colonizer. He tells the truth, he mentions the unmentionable. He acts as Jesus told us-not as the Church or political expediency may dictate. When even the leaders of world religions went along with wars and greed how could the people be expected to act morally?
Now as more people are becoming heart centered, I find it no coincidence that we have a Pope with a heart. A person feels a fool for having faith in a church obviously corrupt-and yet most people believe deeply in the faith they were raised to follow. Now people can act on their highest moral impulses without having to abandon the faith of thir ancestors. I believe that this will have a positive effect beyond Catholicism. Pope Francis cultivates a respectful and positive relationship with other religions and religious leaders, as does the Dalai Lama. Perhaps now people can respect others who are different instead of fighting to punish difference. Love truly always has been the answer.

Openhearted Rebellion

Pope Francis (AFP Photo / Andreas Solard)

Speculation has been raised that Pope Francis has been venturing out of the Vatican at night, disguised as a priest and meeting with the homeless in Rome.

In a recent interview with Archbishop Konrad Krajewski, who has headed up the centuries-old position of seeking out the poor handing out alms for the Catholic Church, Krajewski seemed to imply that Pope Francis has been joining him on his nightly trips into the city.

Krajewski has been instructed by the Pope of finding those in need, reforming the work into a hands-on project and an extension of the church’s charity.

“The Holy Father told me at the beginning: ‘You can sell your desk. You don’t need it. You need to get out of the Vatican. Don’t wait for people to come ringing…
