Concise News Item 1:
"Are you going to ask your government to guarantee you peace and security? There is no nation with a boundary that has not been conceived as a result of war: either a military victory, or a defeat."
Carolyn Myss, American Medical Intuitive
If you can read these words, you have lived long enough to know that there is war without. Look for peace within yourself. No matter which country you live in, you are financing its military machine.
Concise News Item 2:
Intellect is the abstract logical function of the left hemisphere of the human neo-cortex. Intelligence is an innate function of every living cell not to hurt itself, nor damage any other living thing.
Paraphrasing Joseph Chilton Pearce
In our 21st
Century attempt to create a global culture, life, liberty and the pursuit of
happiness have all been sublimated to the rule of the intellect, to abstract
constructs like multinational corporations and abstract concepts like a

"Bin Laden's capture would no more end the terrorism than did the capture and eventual killing of the drug baron Pablo Escobar halt drug trafficking from Colombia."
Bin Laden "should be pursued with the same diligence that the Israelis once hounded Adolf Eichmann. With quiet police work, not noisy war work."

Concise News Item 4:
As for what should be done for "your" country, I would say that the very best measure is to see Truth clearly, and to remember... Our allegiance is not to the flimsy veil of nationalism. A nation is only an artificial ideal that is collectively believed in. When that ideal becomes hypocritically abused, such as in the bombing of other countries who did not attack us first, it is then that this ideal is world destructive.
The first step to true freedom is the freeing of the mind.
Matthew Wayne Webb
United Communities of Spirit
Truth is personal. When two or more people share a truth, it becomes a belief and loses its vitality. Yet, when two or more people share their individual Truths, they learn from each other. So whenever you hear a truth that rings true but you are not learning anything from it, free you mind of it!
Concise News Item 5:
Mohawk elder Sara Smith believes that
peace can be accomplished person by person. "Look for peace within
and without: I believe all people have it sealed in their heart center. Find
the thread of truth in all of this and begin to weave our tapestry of life
"As the dreamer dreams, so does he become," she says. "It's within the realm of possibility for all people to make that choice. It’s difficult when this news of war is on 24 hours a day and bombards our souls. People become immersed in what's happening rather in centering themselves and focusing on what could be."

We make choices daily. Without listening to our intuition, our choices tend towards addictive activities. Following intuition, reinforced by reason, seems difficult at first, if not impossible. Intuitively inspired, well thought-out choices force us into learning situations. Learning strengthens the spirit, brings a sense of self-worth, and the quest to learn more.

Say what you want, but this war is illegal

The justice based on "an eye for an eye" or "a tooth for a tooth," is Old Testament based. All it has ever done is perpetuate and perpetrate a culture of violence, a cyclical order of war and a lull for preparation of another war, relentlessly replacing one another. Even the periods of 'peace' were but time-outs to prepare for the next conflict.
Two thousand years ago another paradigm was introduced, a state of mind or a belief system based on "Peace on Earth and Goodwill to Mankind." It got nowhere. It was hijacked by religious institutions that continued the cycle of violence and glorified war.
excerpt from "Aftermath of Terror"
Concise News Item 7
"It is the fear and all
the issues within our own hearts that we must conquer. You see, when we release
the light within ourselves, the whole world feels it. It affects the entire
universe through a kind of contagion, because we are one. We are all a
part of the same unified field of
consciousness. That is the lightworkers way. We work on inner levels, which naturally expresses itself on outer planes. That is the only way to effect real change. Be wary of where your thoughts are, for they are creating your future."
- "Krista Herring" <email@example.com>
Everything we communicate with words has to be channeled through the intellect: whatever it is, it has to come out one word at a time and must sound more or less logical before anyone will listen. But a human being has other channels through which to communicate. Each chakra is a channel. Each unspoken thought radiates outward.
Concise News Item 8:
Create your community.
Be good to each other.
And do not look outside yourself for the leader.

When my heart is in synch with my mind, I can take responsibility for my thoughts, words and actions. If intuition is the language of the soul, it can only come from within!
Concise News Item 9
This (terrorism) is a multi-thrust effort that needs little staging other than what you have heard about. More incidents may come but very strategically selected and only enough to keep the fear alive. Fear is the intent of this, not mass death. ... Know thy God-self.
When Roosevelt declared,
"The only thing to fear is fear itself," the Second World War had
Concise News Item 10:
It's obvious that the governments of this world are not going to resolve this conflict that continues century after century. Humanity has been at war since the existence of humankind. The "trickle down" effect will be more of the same. It is time for us to access our own inner goodness and godself and begin the "inside-out" form of evolution and transcendence. Let us all open up our heart chakras fully to love for every being on this planet and begin this process of healing the world, before it's too late.
Dr. Sasha and Janet Kira Lessin
If all nations with borders were born through war, either as a result of winning an armed conflict, or losing it, then let the nation that claims to bring Peace to first give up its borders won through war!
But there are individuals who have been conceived in peace and love and who were born in peace. Let us manifest peace within ourselves and establish a borderless, boundless community of peoples.
Concise News Item 11:
In "The Power of
Myth" series Joseph Campbell says that the greatest tragedy is the
If the believers of the three great religions were worshipping God, they would find the unity in their diversity. But as long as they worship their symbols and their codified books, these act as blinds. A deity can bind hearts together. Law books can only separate them.
Concise News Item 12
We experience outside of ourselves the eruptions of a system which is based inside of us on violence and fear. This system is also in our selves. The will for peace is not only a cry against the outer conditions but the will for peace is the definitive change of our own living conditions.
Terrorism and Love
Reflections on the attacks in the US by Dieter Duhm
Our thoughts produce our environment. Our thoughts precede health or disease. We are, therefore, all physicians. If we want a healthy environment, we have to will ourselves, think ourselves back into peace and health. Physician, heal thyself!
Concise News Item 13:
If we were not so single minded about keeping our lives moving, and for once could do nothing, perhaps a huge silence might interrupt this sadness of never understanding ourselves and of threatening ourselves with death.
Perhaps the earth can teach us as when everything seems to be dead in winter and later proves to be alive
From Pablo Neruda, following the 1973 coup in Chile
To stop our incessant, busy activities, in order to listen to the internal chatter of our own mind may not seem to lead anywhere. But by listening to our own breath, that chatter eventually stops and silence ensues: it is the true rest before another bout of life.
Concise News Item 14
"War is obsolete you
know," the Dalai Lama said. "Of course the mind can rationalize
fighting back... but the heart, the heart would never understand. Then
you would be divided in yourself, the heart and the mind, and the war
would be inside you."
"Philip A. Kratzer" <firstname.lastname@example.org>
I would like to share with you something I heard the Dalai Lama say in
I spent 22 years in the educational system. I can rationalize anything. I can even outwit myself. But that is self-deception. If I am in the habit of deceiving myself, then others can deceive me just as easily. Self-deception is a form of voluntary slavery when the intellect represses the heart.
Concise News Item 15
Many people may feel they have little to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. But despite all the fear and anxiety, we live in less fear and more security, with more "stuff" and more opportunity and more experiences and more freedom than almost any people, at any time at any place. Happy Thanksgiving.

At a time when it seems our freedoms are being taken away, our health deteriorating with polluted food, water and air, we are still better off than anyone else throughout history. It is not too late to regain our perspective, to look at our environment as blessed, give thanks for it and begin improving it by improving our own state of mind first.
Concise News Item 16
November 14, 2001
Our flag is the banner of freedom seekers, risk takers, democracy builders, rebels, pioneers, mavericks, barnraisers, and hellraisers -- a liberty-loving people who are naturally suspicious of authority and able to detect that the real threat to our land of the free comes not from afar, but from within.
