“Love is the felt experience of connection to another being. An economist says ‘more for you is less for me.’ But the lover knows that more of you is more for me too. If you love somebody their happiness is your happiness. Their pain is your pain. Your sense of self expands to include other beings. This shift of consciousness is universal in everybody, 99% and 1%.”

In this article I am misquoted by one word. The only reason i point it out is that the thought makes far more sense. In any case please post links to more spiritual occupying so i can re-post and share with the OccupyUniverse.
At Pershing Square where the protesters first rallied, Arthur Klein, a yoga teacher by profession who appeared to be one of the Occupy LA organizers, invoked Gandhi and Martin Luther King and called on the marchers to exercise restraint and remain peaceful. He urged them to ‘smile at the police,’ saying the LAPD was supportive of the movement, was part of the 99% and that ‘they want this change too.’ As the crowd cheered, he added:
“We’re growing like the oceans filled with waves. We are powerful not because we are one wave but because we are waves together, and like the colors CURRENTS of the great oceans. We are going to change it all.”
After the brief meeting at Pershing Square, the crowd slowly wound its way to Los Angeles City Hall where occupiers have been camping in tents on the lawns since October 1. Along the way, they chanted ‘Banks got bailed out, we got sold out,’ and ‘From New York to LA, Occupy the USA’ and stopped from time to time to listen to brief speeches by the organizers or anyone stepping forward to relate personal stories of how bank rip-offs and corporate greed had impacted their lives.
The Spirit of the Very First Peaceful (r)Evolution is taking hold and rooting the spirit of our souls deep into the heart of mother earth… Thank you all out there for reflecting to me I am not crazy and I am not alone. Jai we will be victorious you can already feel it in the air. Please participate in this conversation with comments and posts of more of this great stuff.
I hope my friend MC Yogi does a 2012 version of Vote for Hope. Until then this Vote for Hope Video is EXCELLENT! I first heard the song and met MC Yogi at the Democratic National Convention in Denver, Colorado. I was there at the invitation of the Convention to premiere “Y Yoga Movie” August 2008. Seems like a lifetime ago. This past week i have felt glimmers of the Obama I loved and supported… Maybe change is back on the table… Time for us to REMEMBER CHANGE & MAKE IT HAPPEN!
Please share your thoughts, comments and feelings here regarding your hopes, dreams and inspirations for change we can believe in! Time to begin the conversation and take advantage of a Guttenburg press moment as an “agent of change” (Eisenstein)
Out of the fire our future will be written and all who have forgotten or who have been in fear to stand up for what is good and right about us; like ethics, humanity, collective consciousness and the truth that all beings should have the right to pursue Happiness. These people who ignore the responsibility to think in… Terms of the next 7 generations into the future rather than a 24 hour news cycle or a business quarter will have missed the opportunity to suck all the juice out of the fruit of living and being here now! We are at a crossroad and I hope we carefully consider the road not taken!
“And once we have the condition of peace and joy in us, we can afford to be in any situation. Even in the situation of hell, we will be able to contribute our peace and serenity. The most important thing is for each of us to have some freedom in our heart, some stability in our heart, some peace in our heart. Only then will we be able to relieve the suffering around us.”
