“Most of the baby boomers that I know, have disconnected from commercialism.
Instead, we are clearing out and letting go most of our stuff. I can't even imagine fighting over a television. Who watches television? I think I must be getting old.
I hope everyone wakes up soon.”

“The crudeness and pack mentality can't be defended. . but, really, disconnecting from commercialism? None I'm aware of. And 'who watches television?' All but a handful.”
“When I find that I am having a pity party, I ask myself, "Do I have enough?"
The answer is always, "I have more than enough." This thought moves me out of fear and into the knowledge that the Universe always supports me. Even when I was homeless, for a period of time, I found support systems that I will be eternally grateful for. Blessings to you all.”
“How delightful. When I find that I am in a pity party, I make a mental list of all that I am grateful for. Another platitude that helps me, when I'm feeling fearful is,
"I always have more than enough." This is always true for me. In this moment I do have more than enough. When I am grateful and not fearful, my awareness opens and I become generous with my time and money. Life is good. Sending blessings to you all.”

“A friend said to me once, "How can there be World Peace when there is a war going on inside of you." I had to think about that a lot.
By loving our self, and healing old wounds, we participate in creating a world of peace.”
“It's food. People are crying about food. I'm crying too. Maybe if we all did what we could to help feed our neighbors, we would spend less time feeling sorry for ourselves. There's more than enough; especially when we share. Sending loving thoughts to all.”
“We must protect our forests. Congress needs to listen to the experts/scientists.
It sounds like some members of Congress are using wildfires as an excuse to scare people. Do you think that maybe greed is involved here? Every day I see hundreds of trees being trucked on the Oregon highway. It is so sad to see an old growth tree on its way to China. My heart aches when I see this.”

“Which begs to ask another question, why is all the lumber being sent to China instead of being processed here? Time to take back from China what should be done here! Dry wall too, and look at the trouble which came from that. Some company wanted to harvest some of the giant redwoods here in California, luckily that didn't happen. It was so nice in August, in the border country of Scotland and England, to see hillsides covered thickly with green trees.”

“They are not concerned with their own future because they park their money made by others, elsewhere, so they don't pay taxes. They aren't concerned with future generations because they know they will take care of theirs, and too bad for those they rape and use now. Also, don't forget the self-fulfilling prophecy of the apocalypse, where they orchestrate it when it will profit them most, and meanwhile they keep their poor constituents supporting them with what little money they have, coddling the paranoia these people have in fear of the "end times." Add fury to your heartache, my friend......it gets more information spread.”
“Maybe this is why I get deathly ill when I eat chicken or turkey. I never really understood why. Maybe when an animal lives in fear and dies in fear, we ingest their fear.”

“Yes we do. They emit chemcials of fear which are absorbed into the meat and thus we eat that.”

“i'm a 100 percent sure that you would be made more "deathly ill" if you ate food prepared for you a century ago than today.
we've made such incredible strides when it comes to food safety across the world, especially in western countries like america. we take it for granted now because it's so commonplace.
on the one hand, i do think it's sad that these birds have to be boiled alive. on the other, there is no perfect way of feeding billions of people. there's a lot of idealistic rhetoric that would never work in reality, but the way we do things currently, feeding more people than ever imagined by our ancestors, is probably as good as it's going to get for now.”
