One World in Dialogue

I love the concept of one world engaging in dialogue as a means to cocreate and inform everyone, to bear witness as they say, regarding healing the pain we as the human race have allowed to be inflicted upon others around the world.

On June 1st you can participate in the Global Dialogue Lab.  There are two options, zoom in or call in.  I’m going to call at 10 am central time; and if you go to their webpage you’ll be given the information you need to decide if you want to join in the conversation. Just click here before the event: OneWorldinDialogue.com

This post is not a paid advertisement for them.

I often share websites that speak to issues I personally resonate with, such as Colin Tipping’s 5-stage process to heal relationships called Radical Forgiveness.  I liked his process so much that I used it as a template during a Sunday Service in Tulsa, Oklahoma, at the Center of Light.  Radical Forgiveness.com has been around for a while and it can be applied personally, or as a 5-step process to explore healing the people who’ve been caught in the net of terrorism and suffered at the oppressor’s hands.  What I love about Colin’s work is that he speaks of the power of restitution, wherein the ones who have done the atrocious acts return and take responsibility to care for the family’s who have been affected by their violence.  The whole community experiences relief from the burden of their hatred for the “enemy”.  The title of one of his worksheets is: “Making Room for the Miracle”.

And so beloved readers and fellow sacred activists, may peace be upon you and yours.  May you be patient with one another when it is a challenge. And may you forgive those who have hurt your feelings.  Remember that everyone we know helps us learn to improve our relationships. We will never heal the people of the nations of our planet if we don’t seriously engage in constructive dialogue.  I hope you take advantage of tomorrow’s event.

Three more events will take place on: June 7th, June 21st, and June 24th.  Check it out.

Update on Volcano

Deadly lava, and additional tears in the earth are rising. Hawaiians now have 22 vents and lava bombs are another dangerous aspect to this volcano.  This feels to me like a major birthing of the chain of islands in Hawaii.

As you know I am someone who seeks to see the bigger energy picture about everything.  I see this cycle as ultimately positive, but painful, as in the birth process.  We are birthing our planet. Sadly homes are burning, people are getting hurt, and the immediate tourist future for the Hawaiian islands is impacted.

Dear hearts, prayers are lovely but think about what you can do to help cancel some of the bad karma of The United States.  Action is called for here.  Everything coming out of our current administration is tearing down the security of democracy.  Like a volcano, there is insecurity for everyone who isn’t rich, and powerful.  The safety net established by other presidents is being shredded.  Each week there is another loss of something we citizens need to survive in this world.

If there was ever a time to become a sacred activist, it is now.  I recommend you look at the wheel of co-creation from Barbara Marx Hubbard’s work and look at the 12 social sectors.  Where does your heart resonate the most?  Ask what you can do.  Then do it.

Start small if you are not experienced.  The “blue wave” as Democrats are calling it is swelling across our nation in elections.  That’s a good thing, but we may need a three party system.  Bernie Sanders is an Independent.  We saw what happened when he mobilized citizens.  He unleashed the dreams sensible people have cherished as the American Dream and the time is now to push back against this government.

The volcano is a natural event.  We have to wait until its cycle is done.  But “We the People” are a force that is powerful and if we energize, and socialize together, we can cocreate another American Dream.

I hope you think about this and share your thoughts with your friends.  Coalitions are created by the need for social change.  Thank you.

From my heart to yours, Namaste.  Rev. Cassandra

 

 

Elemental Hell

This is the story of the Hawaiian island of Kauai, as reported by Heidi Chang, 4/28/18 in an article for the L.A. Times.  For those of you who do not understand the devastation nor the reality of climate change, pay attention. The National Weather Service reported that nearly 50 inches of rain fell in 24 hours.  Now fast forward to the recent volcanic Kilauea eruptions emitting dangerous fumes, from 15 new fissures that stretch over just short of three miles.  Earthquakes continue, as you would expect from any powerful eruption of a boiling cauldron of lava.   And, although it is true that people who live near volcanoes know the risks, it is still terrifying when two such powerful weather conditions occur so close together.

Scientists warned citizens that the rain deluge was something new, an extreme rainfall that would normally come when the atmosphere gets warmer. This is a description of climate change, the warming of the earth and the reaction of elements to this new reality.   Man made disasters are one thing, natural disasters are another.  Hurricanes, Cyclones, Tornadoes, Rain, Flooding, and Volcanos cannot be stopped.  Man cannot control weather or undo the damages to the environment, and losses of life that have occurred because when we were first warned about the potential of climate change, we as a people did not push back against those who were doing the worst damage and refusing to believe in the future of doom.

So, enough about natural and not-so-natural weather related disasters.  Now let’s look at what is happening during the current White House regime take-over.  I was reading an article and something caught my eye that alarmed me.  The news was that Trump was going to decrease the size of our national monuments and parks and make way for oil and gas drilling on lands that, in some cases, were sacred to our First Peoples, and would interfere with the public’s enjoyment of nature’s splendor as Teddy Roosevelt originally intended when he dedicated several parks to the people.

We know that Yellowstone National Park is overdue to explode.  The caldera’s that are part of the old volcano are active again in that land is rising from the pressure of the volcano gathering strength.  We’ve seen reports over the past decade that speak to what looks like a future eruption because scientists have been carefully recording all of the preceding signs of an eruption.   A potential future for anyone living in the northwestern United States, and into the central states as well is frightening.  The same fear plagues those who live near the San Andreas fault lines, and other fault lines throughout our country.  We do live in a hostile world, but unlike those who could legislate limits to the chemical agents, drilling, and carbon emissions to gain us more time to eliminate the problems that build the likely hood of catastrophes around the world, they do nothing good at all.

Lastly, the ice melts are already raising ocean levels and our brothers and sisters in island communities are going to need to be rescued sooner than later.  Imagine if Bear’s Ear Monument was a temporary sanctuary instead of  land ruined by the mining, and drilling process?  Other parks could also help our neighbors survive as sanctuaries in a worse-case scenario.  Our legislators are short thinking.  And did I mention they were greedy?  Are you watching the news about Trump’s son speaking to foreign heads of state regarding bank loans to save Trump’s real estate problems?  I won’t go further because there is still more legal discovery to be accomplished and Special Investigator Mr.Mueller III hasn’t closed his investigation yet.   My point here is that we cannot trust our leaders to do what is good for the whole of our nation and its people.  That means we must begin to take action that will guide us forward if we want to survive and create a world built upon love and compassion.

It has always been my hope that governance could become compassionate.  I am a Sacred Activist for that very reason.

Now I want to tell you about EarthJustice.org

Earth Justice is a nonprofit environmental law organization and they just won the case against the Canadian/American sludge pipeline by proving that several legal issues made the case unjustifiable, or some other such legalese.  The Indigenous Peoples do not have to worry about their aquifer being damaged beyond repair.  That’s one for the good guys.

I hope that you will look around  your state and see if there are obvious problems like Superfund sites (chemicals in water flows, and nuclear poisoned earth, or illegal dumping when the companies are supposed to, or are court ordered to restore these sites to safety levels again.  I am only one small person and I need you to bring to the forefront the neglect of our government to insist and punish companies and corporations who have not care about your safety in the past and will likely continue to break eco laws.  When you find such a Superfund, please contact Earth Justice and see if they are working on a solution.  If not, ask them to consider suing the businesses involved.  We must all remain vigilant and not assume that we do not have options to help make something right that has gone terribly wrong in our country.

Thank you, dear hearts, for reading this article.  And thank you for whatever action you will take to keep our legal system engaged in restoring land, water, and air safe for our children and their children.

Talking is good, but deep listening is better!

I know that the most important relationships I have had and will have all shared one thing in common.  We got to know each other well because we spent time together talking; and we went deep once we knew we could trust one another.  I remember an exercise in grade-school that was designed to teach us a powerful lesson, and it did.  You have likely heard of the whisper-circle.  It is called by many names and the game starts with the teacher whispering something in a student’s ear.  That student whispers in the next student’s ear what she heard her teacher say.  This whispered message gets passed along to the lst student in the circle and he or she speaks the secret out loud.  It never fails that the whole room breaks into laughter because the teacher looks very surprised.  Then she tells us all what it was she said.  You have already guessed that the end result is nothing like the one the teacher started.

Being childless I don’t know if they still do this lesson in class to impress upon the students that it is important to listen very carefully in order to get the message right.  Nor do I know if teachers teach their students speech etiquette, but I can guess that it is not on the modern curriculum.  There are still vicious rumors that are circulated about children on the internet and worse.  You’ve heard these stories, and I truly hope you have not had a child who has committed suicide because they felt their life was ruined forever.  Children and teens are still developing important segments of their brains and therefore are not able to use discernment with reliability.  The problem is that we learn most of what we are going to need socially in highschool and college. Once we enter the workforce competition gets more demanding and we are so rushed to finish deadlines that our listening skills can become skewed.

There is one great way to stay in the center of all the good you want to create when you realize, like Buckminster Fuller did, that creating small things for the world to have a better life satisfies us more than working for conglomerates that are more interested in using the world to further their bottom line.  He wasn’t born knowing the importance of managing money, he learned by making mistakes, but his intention to move ahead and take the world with him in a more peaceful, and eco-friendly way was part of his ultimate message, and gift,  to us.  He heard the whisper correctly the first time and, with no distortions.  Google him if you don’t know his works already.  You will be amazed by the quality of his life.

This short little reminder is to encourage you to find groups to join and to listen deeply when you find those that align with your vision of your future.  As a minister and an author who also loves photography and gardening I have plenty of places that I can look into to find people who have similar interests.   Most online groups are easy to find.  The only point I want to stress here is that it is better for your mental health if you choose groups that are not spewing hate-speech, or claiming to be superior to the rest of us for some reason believed only by them.

Living in a world run-mad by politicians and poisoned by conglomerates seeking the dollar instead of the preservation of our natural resources is stressful to your mind, heart and body.  For me, I want to be part of the solutions to the problems of my generation.  I believe it is my job to help restructure social sectors that have become corrupt because my generation was more interested in being left alone by those who didn’t live the same type of life style.  We turned our back on what was happening because it as too painful to see the failures resulting after wars that were supposed to protect us from big bombs and chemical warfare.

I have found several groups that I love and I want to share them with you.  Most can be found on Facebook, but I want to give you the links so you can just click it and listen in to one of the calls.  We listen deeply to one another.  We are respectful of one another.  We seek to find people who want to support projects we believe in, or to support theirs because it is a great new vision for the healing of our planet.  There are thousands of Bucky Fuller’s in the world.  The geodesic domes he designed way before people thought of living gently on the land are a mainstay in architectural design for having a smaller carbon footprint.

Here are my faves:

Global Communion of Pioneering Souls:  email is GlobalCommunion@gmail.com

“Global Community of Co-Creative Visionary Leaders”, and another call entitled “Calling in the Field of the Miraculous”:  both run by the Milagro World Center, co founded by Nina Patrick and Joseph F. Rosado.  The center is located in Panama.  Email: Nina@milagroworldcenter.com  Nina is based in the U.S.

Global Heart Resonance, “Call to Wholeness”, Shelly Darling is found online at Good of the Whole.com   These calls take place on Mondays.

Pachamamma.org  – This organization is currently offering free classes to help you decide if you want to be an activist for indigenous peoples, and more.  Worth the visit.

Lastly, I ask you to share this website when you can: multipleyouuniverse.com.

As people with good hearts begin to recreate the web, each of us has a role.  I am a Sacred Activist, and a communicator for those whose voices have been stolen from them.  I believe that government should be guided by compassionate leaders who want to serve the good of the whole.

Let us all share who we are and where we are.  We have awakened to the calling of the future.  If you think there is a way you would benefit from joining any of these groups, please do visit them.
