Aaron Desmarais has sent 12seconds for Peace this great little video today that expresses through its collage of images the consequences of choosing the way things are right now, as opposed to peace. Whatever the future holds, unless peace is on the agenda, things look pretty bleak for humanity and it is encapsulated in Aaron's video-warning here.
It is always a pleasure to receive videos from people out of the blue such as this one from… Continue
The beauty of this project is that anyone can stop for a few seconds and make a statment for peace in front of a camera. Thank you once more to Murdock's Trinity Records in Arizona for this gem of a video. Murdock's Trinity Records are out and about in Arizona doing their best to record videos for this project and making all sorts of wonderful connections with people who want peace.
The truth is, that in spite of the problems that beset us all and that befuddle humanity… Continue
The International Day of Peace was established in 1981 by resolution
36/67 of the United Nations General Assembly to coincide with its
opening session, which was held annually on the third Tuesday of
September. The first Peace Day was observed in September 1982. In 2001,
the General Assembly by unanimous vote adopted resolution 55/282, which
established 21 September as an annual day of non-violence and
cease-fire. The UN invites all nations and people to honour a… Continue

Yesterday I went to New York to hang out with a friend of mine, but as soon as I got into town, I received a text saying she had to work overtime and would not be able to make it. So I did something I often do. I went to a bookstore. I left the bookstore with a massive book filled with the works of Kahlil Gibran. I walked across Lower Manhattan then over the Brooklyn Bridge with the book in my hand. When I got to the Brooklyn end of the bridge, I thought I should go to my favorite restaurant…

Located at the base of the spine, the Muladhara, also known as the root or base chakra, helps us relate to life force energy and helps to ground us. “Muladhara” actually means “foundation,” which really tells a lot about this…
There is a tiny park in Lower Manhattan, on Mulberry Street, in Chinatown, where a small sign hangs on a fence dedicated to the memory of a man named Jacob Riis. Who was Jacob Riis? For a time in the late 1800's, he was a homeless man who lived in New York, who had been chased away, by the cops, out of every place he could find to sleep, accept a certain grave in a forgotten corner of a local cemetery. And his only friend was a stray dog who used to sleep on the same grave at night. His only…

A couple years ago, I ran into a terrible time in my life. I had been out of work for a while. My entire savings had run out. I had recently sold what little I had left of value at the pawn shop to buy food. My girlfriend had just broken up with me a few days before. And I had no idea where I was going to get my next rent payment. On the news I had seen that a hurricane had struck the Southeast, and was coming up the coast and was about to hit my part of the world. Well it turns out that by the… Continue

In Buddhism, meditation is often enhanced by meditation or singing bowls. As the name suggests, these instruments are bowls that produce a clear vibrant tone when played. The soft, continuous singing sound is produced by rubbing a mallet around the rim, much the same way a crystal goblet can be made to ring by rubbing a finger around its…
The Hindus bathe in the Ganges. The Jews go to the mikveh. The Catholics dip their hand in holy water and make the sign of the cross. The Christians, both Protestant and Catholic baptise. The Native Americans go to the sweat lodge. The Turks go to the hamam. The Russians go to their bath house. We all understand, on some level, the sacred power of water. We all find some connection to the devine in it. Even the surfer paddling out to the waves can understand. It is in all of us.
Meditation has other benefits. It is almost impossible to fully focus on two things at once and a mind that is completely absorbed in the feeling of each breathe, or in the vibrations of a chant cannot also be focused on its own troubles or unhappiness.…

"Why should there be hunger and deprivation in any land, in any city, at any table, when man has the resources and the scientific know-how to provide all mankind with the basic necessities of life?" ~Martin Luther King, Jr.
