'Ishmael' (Ishmael: An Adventure of the Mind and Spirit)
was a circus ape running ads in newspapers and educating us on the difference and collapse of the worlds way of living in harmony and peace for millions, maybe hundreds of millions of years on this blue ball floating in space in a galaxy not to far, far away....
This ape is fiction but his message is not. Have you read it? from Cain & Able on down man has not only managed to help destroy this planet, but also himself, or at least to bolster the money crazed "health Care industry" - rather sick care.
Where is loving peaceful ways of the garden of eden - were they myth? or real?
if you have seen the movie the The Gods Must Be Crazy you will glimpse a real world where until as recently as that movie was made these loving little people lived, played, and died in very peaceful, and very healthy world of the Kalahari.
John Robbins the son of the ice cream empire by that name, found early on that this life style was not not healthy, but needed to know why. In his first book "Diet for New America" in his research John discovered what no one had know before, that the meat industry was killing our planet and us; using to much of our precious water, too much of our land to grow food for animals, and the waist of the animals was contributing too much to global warming - the methane gasses from cow flatulence, and from the manure are green house gasses.
But the biggest thing he discovered is the dying of the human heart to feel compassion, and love for our fellow beings on this earth.
Well I would say read that book if you haven't but first...
If you don't read anyother book this year read
his latest one:
Staying Healthy at 100 - How to get healthy at any age....
You'll discover with him the 3 ancient cultures that out lived us all - Hunza, the Okinawan,
where our modern diseases were unknown like cancer and heart disease.
You will discover two cultures that have existed and thrived for over 50,000 years and right here under our noses - where healthy longevity, harmony and loving peace, and even abundance, are the way of live.
John puts it all into perspective of how to live healthy, right now, in our culture, Holistically -
weigh the right weight for your body automatically, live disease free, and what to do help us all on the blue ball, live peaceful, happy, lives.

On the evening of March 31st, 2009, Tim Tevebaugh was driving home from work east of Craigmont in the southern Idaho Panhandle (see map below). Across the rolling hay fields, Tim saw a very usual phenonmena. The snow rollers that he took pictures of are extremely rare because of the unique combination of snow, wind, temperature and moisture needed to create them. They form with light but sticky snow and strong (but not too strong) winds. These snow rollers formed during the day as they weren't present in the morning on Tim's drive to work.
this was on the Spokane, WA national weather service site.

Friends,begins Michael Moore... (my comments at the end)
Nothing like it has ever happened. The, the elected representative of the people, has just told the head of -- a company that's spent more years at #1 on the than anyone else -- "You're fired!"
I simply can't believe it. This stunning, unprecedented action has left me speechless for the past two days. I keep saying, "Did Obama really fire the chairman of General Motors? The wealthiest and most powerful corporation of the 20th century? Can he do that? Really? Well, damn! What else can he do?!"
This bold move has sent the heads of corporate America spinning and spewing pea soup. Obama has issued this edict: The government of, by, and for the people is in charge here, not big business. John McCain got it. On the floor of the Senate he asked, "What does this signal send to other corporations and financial institutions about whether the federal government will fire them as well?" said it "should send a chill through all Americans who believe in free enterprise." The stock market plunged as the masters of the universe asked themselves, "Am I next?" And they whispered to each other, "What are we going to do about this Obama?"
Not much, fellows. He has the massive will of the American people behind him -- and he has been granted permission by us to do what he sees fit. If you liked this week's all-net 3-pointer, stay tuned.
I write this letter to you in memory of the hundreds of thousands of workers over the past 25+ years who have been tossed into the trash heap by General Motors. Many saw their lives ruined for good. They turned to alcohol or drugs, their marriages fell apart, some took their own lives. Most moved on, moved out, moved over, moved away. They ended up working two jobs for half the pay they were getting at GM. And they cursed the CEO of GM for bringing ruin to their lives.
Not one of them ever thought that one day they would witness the CEO receive the same treatment. Of course Chairman Wagoner will not have to sign up for food stamps or be evicted from his home or tell his kids they'll be going to the community college, not the university. Instead, he will get a $23 million. But the slip in his hands is still pink, just like the hundreds of thousands that others received -- except his was issued by us, via the Obama-man. Here's the door, buster. See ya. Don't wanna be ya.
I began my day today in Washington, D.C. I went to theand got into their Finance Committee's hearing on the . The overseers wanted to know how the banks spent the money. And many of these banks won't tell them. They've taken trillions and nobody knows where the money went. It certainly didn't go to create jobs, relieve mortgage holders, or free up loans that people need. It was so shocking to listen to this, I had to leave before it was over. But it gave me an idea for the movie I was shooting.
Later, I stopped by the National Archives to stand in line to see the original copy of our Siri would take me out to dinner and always pick up the check, the assistant manager at the movie theater would sneak me in so I could watch an occasional movie, Laurie and Jack bought an old Steenbeck (editing) machine for me, would slip me an unused plane ticket so I could go home for Christmas, Rod would do anything for me and drive to Flint whenever I needed something for the film). My late mother (she would've turned 88 tomorrow if she were still with us) and my GM autoworker dad told me in the kitchen they wanted to help and handed me a check for an astounding thousand dollars. I didn't know they even had a thousand dollars. I refused it, they insisted I take it -- "No!" -- and then, in that parental voice, told me I was to cash it so I could finish my movie. I did. And I did.. I thought about how twenty years ago this month I was just down the street finishing my first film, a personal plea to warn the nation about GM and the deadly economy it ruled. On that March day in 1989 I was broke, having collected the last of my unemployment checks, relying on help from my friends (Bob and
So on that March day in 1989, as I was driving down, my 9-year-old car just died. I coasted over to the curb, put my head down on the steering wheel and started to cry. I had no money to take it in to be repaired, and I certainly had nothing to pay the tow truck driver. So I got out, screwed the license plates off so I wouldn't be fined, turned my back and just left it there for good. I looked over at the building next to me. It said "National Archives." What better place to donate my dead car, I thought, as I walked the rest of the way home.
Though it wasn't easy for me, I still never had to suffer what so many of my friends and neighbors went through, thanks to General Motors and an economic system rigged against them. I wonder what they must have all thought when they woke up this Monday morning to read in the Detroit, are broke.or the the headlines that Obama had fired the CEO of GM. Oh -- wait a minute. They couldn't read that. There was no Free Press or News. Monday was the day that both papers ended home delivery. It was cancelled (as it will be for four days every week) because the daily newspapers, like General Motors, like
I await the President's next superhero move.Grand Am for a hybrid, was alternately sad, hilarious, and just plain weird. This is what it's come to: the Commander in Chief of the Free World is now Mr. Goodwrench. Jeesh.
As Consciousness rises growing pains will show, Karma is powerful, and that the US citizens are paying the bill and our childrens, childrens, children and then some, we have been pushed over the edge, just at times in the past a sleeping giant seems to have awaken.
Blogging and video cell phones and the power of Google bringing it all together should not be overlooked. The 'infra' structure of technology is mimicking our own native telepathy that most choose to ignore - or have been trained to ignore, and have been drugged for experiencing it as children or adults.
Check out the movie Thunderheart... understand the Native Americans know when and where to come together without any telepones, cell phones, computers, not even word of mouth, they just use the their own un meterabel, un marketable, god given telepathy and know to pay attention to it and respond.

We are gaining momentum in raising consciousness, becoming more 'other' minded or 'us' minded over the 'me' or 'mine' mindedness.
Now we have another first a President Firing a CEO, one who seems to have stood in the way of cleaner air, and cheaper to operate vehicles. I am going to post Michael More's Comments on this
as he has an very unique personal perspective on GM.
Keep up the grand work on meditating in the silence the depth of peace, and unity of consciousness.
This weekend in Dallas is the Peace conference, where folks learn how to actually create peace.
may you experience real peace, daily and always...
