A Conversation With Native Americans on Race | Op-Docs

This week we bring you “A Conversation With Native Americans on Race,” the latest installment in our wide-ranging “Conversation on Race” series. Directed by Michèle Stephenson and Brian Young, the film grapples with the racist contradictions of a country that, many feel, would prefer it if Native Americans didn’t exist.

Daily Good: Charlie Chaplin: Let Us Free The World

The persecution of any minority is inhuman and unnatural. That belief is timeless and beyond change.

Charlie Chaplin –

Charlie Chaplin: Let Us Free The World

Some call it the greatest speech ever made. This remix puts Charlie Chaplin’s climactic address from “The Great Dictator” (1940) into present-day context, showing how the spirit of liberty, brotherhood, and equality that defeated fascism seven decades ago must be urgently reclaimed. { read more }

Be The Change

Try this thought experiment: if, like Charlie Chaplin in “The Great Dictator”, you had the opportunity to “speak truth to power”, to whom would you address your words and what would you say?

Elephant Journal: Honor Indigenous People’s (Not Columbus) Day with these Tender Native American Wisdoms.

American soil was maliciously stolen from the beautiful Native Americans that originated here.
For decades, these tragic events have been celebrated collectively as Columbus Day. We are taught in school that this is a great day to commemorate: the brave discovery of land, after traveling by boat in 1492, by Christopher Columbus.

EarthSky News: Moon, Venus, Regulus October 12 to 15

What better way to start out the day than to enjoy the waning crescent moon and dazzling planet Venus before sunrise? You might also spot Regulus, the brightest star in the constellation Leo the Lion, up before the sun. Although Regulus is a 1st-magnitude star, or one of the brightest stars in our sky, Leo’s brightest star pales next to Venus. Brilliant Venus outshines Regulus by well over 100 times.

Patheos-Pagan: We Need To Dance!

Whether it be at a sweaty, heartbeat thumping rave or a sticky floored pub band gig, I love to dance. Give me cheesy disco, give me a ‘too many glasses of wine with friends’ accidental front room dance floor.

Inner Journey: SING YOUR OWN SONG

“Since you are like no other being ever created since the beginning of time, you are incomparable.”
— Brenda Ueland

Great forces are directing you to conform to the patterns of your society. You have DNA that has been handed down from generation to generation, coding repeated behaviour patterns into your being. You have archetypal energies setting the standards for how you behave as a man or a woman, as husband or wife, as father or mother …. You are immersed in consensual reality, whereby the world around you reflects societal understanding of how life has been and is to be.

At the same time, you have an even greater force within you inspiring you to wake up and recognize the reality of who you are. This force, the creative power underlying the entire universe, is urging you to create brand new standards of reality.

The status quo is blind to our creative power. Create a brand new world for yourself, one that meets your deepest needs, and you will help raise the quality of consciousness of the entire world.

“You must be the change you wish to see in the world.”
— Gandhi

A Note from the Universe

I have to admit when we thought of adding the dimension of “time” to space, it was not wildly popular.

True, it would make possible evolution, reunions, and cute before-and-after photos. But it would add to the illusion of separation… “horror of horrors!” Spontaneous manifestations would spontaneously cease… “eee-gad!” And the only way anyone could get anything done, would be if they held onto and moved with their vision in thought, word, and deed, even when present circumstances appeared ABSOLUTELY unchanged for their efforts… yeah, “SIGN ME UP!!!!”

Thinking of you beaming with childlike joy

Daily Wisdom
October 12, 2020

Study
“No matter how occupied a man may be, he must snatch at least one hour for study daily.”

-The Bratzlaver (1770-1811)


This is good advice. Meditation might be called a form of study. It’s allowing the wisdom of the universe to come to us. We can also read, or write, or take classes, or talk with wise people. Study can be pleasurable, it doesn’t have to be a chore, like doing homework! Somehow everything we learn helps us to grow

-Lissa Coffey
