Creative Education and the Flowering of Goodness
Graham Peebles: Education is potentially the most powerful means of bringing about a major shift in consciousness, within the individual and by extension society; a movement away from narrow ideas of self that feed selfishness, division and material greed, to an inclusive view of life rooted in the recognition that humanity is one ... We are forever brothers and sisters of one humanity, and from the realization of this essential fact flows all that is good: sharing, social justice, collective responsibility, freedom and peace. ... The greatest single obstacle to the establishment of an undistorted relationship with oneself is fear. It is a debilitating poison that sits at the core of a plethora of inhibiting, suffocating conditions... (Krishnamurti )- the purpose of education “is not to produce mere scholars, technicians and job hunters, but integrated men and women who are free of fear; for only between such human beings can there be enduring peace.”...

Priorities of the Time: Peace
Graham Peebles: Creating a world at peace not only demands putting an end to all forms of armed brutality, it also entails building peace within communities, in the workplace, educational institutions and the home, in the natural environment and, most importantly, it requires the inculcation of harmony within all of us. ... Specific values and conclusions are daily poured into the minds of everyone, virtually from birth, conditioning the consciousness and behavior of people around the world; the media (including the internet), institutionalized education and organized religion being the main outlets for such propaganda. ... At the heart of any alternative system should be the inculcation of the Principle of Sharing; sharing not only of the food, water, land and other natural resources, but of knowledge, skills and opportunities...

“The Price on Everything Is Love”: How a Detroit Community Overcomes a Lack of City Services
Kevon Paynter: A range of neighbor-to-neighbor efforts address basic needs, from healthcare to food access, that are going unmet by local government agencies. ... Decades of economic and population decline, a depleted tax base, and critically underfunded city services have forced Southwest Detroiters to self-organize, establishing a local network of goods and services to fill in for missing city services. The result is a range of neighbor-to-neighbor efforts, like DHEO (Detroiters Helping Each Other), that seek to address broader needs that are going unmet by local government agencies. ... It’s spreading love through giving with the hopes that the people they’re helping out—if they catch someone else who’s on hard times—that they pay it forward... Visit Website ]

Besa: Creating a Culture of Peace
César Chelala: Religious intolerance is at the core of many current conflicts worldwide. Creating a culture of peace, therefore, necessitates respect and cooperation among different religions. Can a level of understanding be reached would make peaceful relations possible? ... During World War II, as Jews were being persecuted by the Nazis, they found refuge in Northern Albania. More than 2000 Jews were protected by the locals, who risked their own lives in doing so. ... only two countries in Europe, Denmark and Albania, refused to cooperate with the Nazis ... Besa is an Albanian cultural concept that means “to keep the promise” and “word of honor.” ... Besa means also taking care of those in need, protecting them and being hospitable. Both Catholic and Muslim Albanians participated in this effort.... Visit Website ]

Me and Muhammid Ali
In Memoriam: Muhammid Ali: His ability as a boxer can be disputed. His brashness can't be denied! But his stand against the War in Vietnam and identifying himself as a Conscientious Objector was the defining moment of his life and that of a whole generation! And for that we should all be grateful. It took real courage to fight that fight - and to win. Yes, he ended up being lauded as a hero though it took many years and then mostly for his abilities in the ring. But we should never forget that standing for principle is itself its own reward. May you rest in peace - you deserve it! And for your stand - You Are The Greatist! (This article was written two years ago on May 15 - "International Conscientious Objector Day.)

Surround Barack Obama With Protective Energy
"To everyone concerned about the integrity of our nation, and especially supporters of Barack Obama, I suggest we make a point of regularly sending protective energy his way...We are capable of much more, and limited only by a mind that creates limits because of limited imagination.

A LOVE-Haight relationship
"The influence of the love-driven flower-power attitude can be felt in lots of ways these days, particularly in a more tolerant, wide-open society. That's a big difference. In the late-1960s and early '70s, the long-haired weren't necessarily safe just standing on the side of a country road.
