“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%.”

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.”

As you can read the headlines of the NY Times today your buddies at Goldman Sachs have almost destroyed Greece’s economy based on their too big to fail bullshit attitude knowing that they have the White House and you in their pocket… Unless you do something to distance yourself from them and break up their organization they will destroy you and us…. What could u possibly be thinking, I believed you to be smart and now i am having my doubts…
How sad for all of us that you refuse get rid of that sleazy self serving and self aggrandizing Geithner. Maybe you should and read Thomas Paine’s Common Sense essay again, it is in the public domain and on Google books …
You are becoming part of the aristocracy believing politicians that are destroying our country and world… I am deeply hurt that you are allowing your presidency to become a joke.
No longer is this change I a can believe in.
What now, Mr. President?
Still in hope of change I can believe in!

PS Have a happy Valentines Day while our Republic is sinking fast!
A personal thank you from me to you, Ms. Buffy Sainte Marie; for pouring your heart, spirit and soul into your new video / track “No NO Keshagesh” from your new album “Running for The Drum”. And thank you to my facebook friend Christiane Mc Keown for attaching this to a message on FB.
Happy Holidays to all my family, friends, readers, kindred spirits and fellow soldiers of Love, Light & Peace. I know in my heart that we are in fact winning the campaign to save our existence on this awesome, wonderful, nurturing planet.
This is a great time to reflect on who we are and how we gracefully move in our personal view of infinity. Because at our best we are not the poets we are the poem.

As we flush the Toilet from the last 8 Years of the Bush Administration please consider the following thought from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
“Cowardice asks the question, Is it safe? Expediency asks the question, Is it politic? Vanity asks the question, Is it popular? But conscience asks the question, Is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must take it because his conscience tells him that it is right.”
Love, Life & Peace as we toast a new day dawning!!!
