Please, consider Future Generations as Sacred and save their world
Bad news for the rainforest and its inhabitants: Indonesia’s President Widodo is planning a $1.35 billion biofuel subsidy that would dramatically speed up deforestation. The palm oil barons are looking forward to the windfall and are ready to fire up the chainsaws. Please speak out against this insanity!

I feel right at home with Jonah Sachs TED Talk, "Winning the Story Wars," has so many pro-active applications that my life and work are ready for!  Jonah put what I am all about in a few words!  Thanking the "Game Changer Intensive" staff for including this in our intense on line discussions.  Thanking Jonah, for this gift; it is for Everyone Everywhere with or without technology, Jonah!

Celebrating Selma & the Legend, but waiting for the Truth of the Real Diversity story that day  . . . it took multi-ethnic inter-faith leaders arm-in-arm to lead the way across that bridge.  Now that is happening again as our Rainbow of Tribe frees the Earth from her bondage. 
No race overcomes on its own; no faith rises alone.

I am taking the Game Changer Intensive with Pachamama Alliance and this video was part of that course.  I have watched it over and over and I am excited to see how I can encourage myself to keep believing in that Beautiful World Our Hearts Know is Possible, while still surrounded by hopeless, victim mentality, attitudes.  Some how lack of faith, disbelief in the resilience of the Universe, has dehumanized people . . . caused them to be calloused and stubborn. I have heard that crisis is an open door of opportunities, but do we have to wait for crisis?  Won't it be that much harder to come together with freaked out people in a crisis? I want to learn NOW how to live together well, while we still have choices.  So how do we find each other, those of us who are aware of our potential and the synergy of our planet with others?

Thank you for this honest summary of your transition process.  I am hoping to apply your teaching on Leading from Receiving (instead of depleting) in my relationship to Mother Earth, our Greatest Tribal Sister, as you said here.  I am collecting ways to remind myself (like an addict makes new habits)  that Mother Earth has given me everything I need and I have only to honor that fact humbly, in order to honor her.  And honor is all she needs.  How profound . . . maybe honor is all any of us need.  Thank you.  Wanishi! ~RuthAnn

Intense.
I am taking the GCI course right now.
But this piece reminds me to "take it slow" and yet . . . urgency is calling.
And I am calling all Einsteins & Eisensteins to help me through the oxymorons in the time warp of this perfect storm:  http://youtu.be/Oeyp6U33_bY

A hidden gem, great people, good, home cooked food. It is a sit down diner with outdoor seating, too. Great place to enjoy a dock side morning all year long.

His photos have always mesmerizes, but having him in the same issue of Outdoor Delaware magazine about Delaware's First Environmentalists, makes me want a poetry book with his photography of the original people! What do you think Kevin? Envisioning the world through Kevin's eyes restores my sense of well being. Thank you, Kevin

I had a flat tire while dropping my son off as an intern for the Sun Moon Farm CSA on Thomas Road in Rindge. The whole staff was kind and helpful, they let me hang out until the right tire arrived from their supplier and even shared their fantastic, fresh, everything bagle! You guys are the BEST! Let me know when the picnic table is up by the pretty stone walk :-) ~RA from Delaware
