Dearest Beloved Community,
The last few weeks have been a wake-up call.
Control of our personal destinys have in some cases
been taken momentarily out of our hands
and it leaves us feeling vulnerable.
Whether we are feeling the aftershock
of current economic waves,
or personally know of someone suffering
from lack or poor health
the result is the same,
it makes us feel helpless.
For some of us, security has been taken away,
and all that re-mains is for us
to be still for a moment--- and just wait and see.
Yes, these are trying times.
It is also a time that calls for us
to re-evalute our lives, and our purpose.
We also have the opportunity
to make gratitude, hope, patience and faith
important actions steps in our lives.
How many of you have awakened feeling
a sense of loss and thought "I AM NOTHING"?
I know that I have.
Once again a talented artist named Pat
has joined me by offering music and pictures
to internal ideas.
The result is a new youtube video that you may view and share with others.
I AM NOTHING
No matter how hard, or what circumstance you may be in at this time, I hope that each of you have time to take a few moments and reflect on the wonder and beauty of your lives.
In doing so, you find the strength and courage to go on!
Let us begin to offer eachother
our unconditional support, love & respect....

When We Feel Helpless
Melony McGant, poet, storyteller, humanist and world lover of children lives on HOPE; works to breathe in love, and exhales fear (false expectations appearing real). She says "Perhaps our current challenges are wake-up calls for our collective awakening to truth." And she believes that the truth is, there is no need for our constant bickering, our disdain for eachother, for wars and killing, for world hunger, massive disease, for discrimination, subjugation, or oppression. She maintains that LOVE, even on a rainy day, is the answer to our dreams, our individual quests, and our future collective identity. "If we can learn to value our children, our elders, ourselves, and our Mother Earth=Heart, then surely we have the power to impact society and to create a world filled with JOY."
