Obama Administration Requests Info on Planetary Challenges

The Obama Administration has asked the "Evolutionary Leaders" to
communicate about what is transpiring on the planet, and how we can
change the course of the unprecedented events that are challenging
this planet. This is a window of opportunity that must be taken! A
deadline was given for this information to be conveyed to the Obama
Administration.

The Evolutionary Leaders like Deepak Chopra, Gregg Braden, Michael
Beckwith and many, many others, gathered together to write up the
information to present to the Obama Administration. They are also
asking us to sign a petition to show the Administration how many
people are in favor for these changes to occur. They need 10,000
signatures. We need your help to reach that number and beyond!

Below is the information presented to the New Administration. The
petition link will follow:

By the Evolutionary Leaders

The human family is in the midst of the most significant
transformation of consciousness since its emergence in Africa over one
hundred thousand years ago. Consciousness has been evolving for
billions of years from the first cell to us. We are becoming aware
that through our own consciousness the universe can know itself. This
awareness reveals incredible new potential for our individual and
collective humanity.

Simultaneously, we are the first species on this Earth aware that we
can destroy ourselves by our own action. This may be the greatest
wake-up call to the evolution of consciousness since the origin of
Homo sapiens.

We now realize that we are affecting our own evolution by everything
we do. This knowledge awakens in us the aspiration to become more
conscious through subjective practices including meditation,
reflection, prayer, intuition, creativity, and conscious choice making
that accelerate our evolution in the direction of unity consciousness
and inspire us to deeply align our collective vision.

THE CHALLENGE
At this juncture in human history, urgent global crises challenge us
to learn to live sustainably, in harmony and gratitude with one
another and with the living universe. The changes required of humanity
are broad, deep, and far reaching. Only by acting swiftly and
creatively can we birth a planetary culture that will bring well-being
to every form of life in the Earth community.

The good news is that a compelling new story of our potential as a
whole human species is emerging–a story of collaboration, citizen
action, dialogue and new understandings propelled by unprecedented
levels of democratic freedom, multicultural exchange, and access to
communication technologies. It is nothing less than the story of our
collective evolution.

OPPORTUNITIES FOR ACTION
We recognize that the inner and outer aspects of life evolve together.
A dramatic awakening in consciousness will involve an equally dramatic
shift in outward aspects of our lives. In particular, we see the
following as vital opportunities for our conscious evolution, both
personally and collectively:

Cultivating a Paradigm of Aliveness: We regard the universe as deeply
alive and conscious by nature. In a living universe, our sense of
subtle connection and participation with life around us is the basis
for a compassionate and cooperative approach to living.

Educating for an Evolving Consciousness: Awakening consciousness is
the foundation for all the change we seek to see in the world. We can
work to elevate our capacity for conscious reflection and creative
action in our personal lives as well as our collective lives as
communities. We must support research and educational strategies that
optimize human capacities and explore the nature of consciousness.

Restoring Ecological Balance: The balance of planetary ecosystems is
fundamental to our survival. We must reverse the pollution of our
global commons–the water, air and soil that nourish all life. We must
encourage the proliferation of clean, renewable energy sources and
expend all necessary resources toward mitigating the effects of
climate change.

Encouraging Conscious Media: We must find innovative ways to use the
new electronic media as the mirror of our positive evolutionary story,
investing in their capacity to reach across differences of generation,
culture, religion, wealth, and gender to build a working consensus
about our collective future.

Engaging in Social and Political Transformation: More sustainable ways
of living will require the support of a more conscious democracy and
vibrant civil society from which more enlightened leaders will emerge.
All individuals should be encouraged to use their gifts to create
participatory, responsible and compassionate models of governance.

Working for Integrity in Commerce: Conscious businesses that are aware
of the scope, depth, and long-range impacts of their actions are key
to achieving sustainability. Business must become an ethical steward
of the Earth's ecology and consciously establish an economic basis for
a future of equitably shared abundance.

Promoting Health and Healing: The science of mind-body-spirit health
has demonstrated the profound connection between the health of a whole
person and the health of the system in which he or she lives. Whole
systems healing, respecting both traditional knowledge and modern
sciences, must be supported in physical, social, and spiritual domains.

Building Global Community: The new story is about all of us who share
this planet. Together, we can create a culture of peace that
eliminates the need for armed conflict, respecting and appreciating
the glorious diversity of our human family.

YOUR PARTICIPATION IS VITAL
Our group has done its best to articulate possibilities for the
evolution of consciousness at this crucial moment in time. Please
reflect on this document, feel what resonates in your being and calls
forth a response on your part. We invite you to discuss it with
others, continuing this global conversation by adding to it the wisdom
that is uniquely your own.

Together, let us co-create a new narrative of conscious evolution that
is a call to individual and collective action, birthing the most
significant transformation of consciousness in history. Join in the
Call to Conscious Evolution by signing the pledge now.

Get Into It

Beyond the Matrix

Last Sunday night's broadcast was chopped up and re-circulated due to a minor glitch in the matrix.



Thankfully, James Moore (Station Manager extraordinaire), was in the KRUU studio late on a Sunday night and was able to rearrange recovered pieces of the original production; mixing them together LIVE with his deft skill, talent and ability to whisper the words "Obvious World" over and over and over and over while fading bits of music in and out...

If you heard it, you know what I'm talking about. Very groovy stuff - thank you again, James. This week you'll hear the original production, as it was intended to be enjoyed...

Day 1 of the NEW: A Reflection on Sleep and Dreams

Photobucket

It is now almost 24 hours since Barack Obama was sworn in as president of the United States. Yesterday, about 10 minutes after the swearing in ceremony, I got up to put our lunch dishes in the sink and noticed a unique sensation. I felt as if I were floating and my head felt light and discombobulated. As I walked to the kitchen it felt as though the laws of gravity had been altered slightly and I began to smile.

This was not a strange moment due to the food I ate at lunch while watching Obama get sworn in after a really soothing piece of music performed by Yo-Yo Ma and crew...this was not the onset of a flu...this was a massive release of stress from the global collective of human beings who have watched our political and social world for the past 8 years...this was the beginning of a new reality. Perhaps it won't be easy, as many sober-minded people suggest, but maybe that's not so important. Maybe the quality of leadership will be enough to help all Americans as well as global citizens, find solutions to the very real challenges we all face today and in the future.

I received an email from an old friend of mine this morning, and without including personal details of my friend, I am reprinting part of my reply below. Mainly the email sent to me was about a vivid dream where my friend was feeling apprehensive about the future as well as the present. There was no safety in the dream for my friend. However, as a character in the dream, I was there being extremely optimistic...challenging the sense of doom my friend was having.

This to me was an indicator that stress was probably being released in a big way and all at one time. My friend doesn't get much rest and therefore the amount of stress being released daily is perhaps not that great. With the world consciousness and physiology shifting yesterday, as I had experienced personally, the likelihood of a deeper state of rest was increased...my belief is that this moment of relief amongst the global civilization was enough to kick-out some deep stresses. Those who perhaps haven't had adequate rest (and subsequently have accumulated more stresses) may have experienced some strange dreams or other side-effects which could be seen as somewhat negative or curious (as in the case of my friend).

Or maybe my friend ate some spicy pizza before bed...=]

..here's part of my reply:

_____________________________________

dreams can be wonderful windows into ourselves sometimes...other times i think they are (just as youhave pointed out) stress being released...

deep rest is key and most of us don't really get enough of it. its important because it gives the physiology a chance to cool down and "reset" itself. important brain chemicals flow during deep rest that don't necessarily flow as much *or at all* during lighter rest.

after yesterday's inauguration, i could feel a sigh of relief from the world at the changing of our guard. to many, the past 8 years have been dominated by an immature cowboy with a bad attitude --- a proven liability to the world stage. now with someone good-natured and clear-headed at the helm, the world can relax a little.

i woke up at 4 this morning to put some more wood in the woodstove...when i got up i took note of the quality of my dreams that i'd been having...my sleep had been more peaceful somehow...my dreams were optimistic (funny, eh?) and i was feeling pleasant, inquisitive about the possibilities of the future.

that being said, i think i've got the benefits of daily regular deep rest from my practice of meditation...which may have attributed to my not having a big kick-out of stress from the global chilling out yesterday...obviously, i see the world as an interconnected web where everyone (and everything) has an effect on the whole, no matter how subtle that may seem...
