When Raven brought the light......T
December 27, 2013, 2:44 pm
ight through darkness, Raven unleashes the light. what we see, what we do, what we experience, all from mystery, and mischief... ------------------------------------------------------------------------ December is a very busy month! Weather you celebrate Pancha Ganapati, Hanukkah, Kwanza, Bodhi Day, Malkh, Winter Solstice, Christmas(or the many others) or try to incorporate all these, it is a time of being with family and community in celebration. December 21st is the Winter Solstice, a time that marks the bringing of the light. We gain incrementally sunlight from this time forward. The question for each of us personally is, 'how do we bring the light'? We each have such beautiful gifts to share with the world, let us share these gifts and bring our light to the world. 7th generation tip of the day: Bring your heart out today, take a gander at her. What does she want to share-ask her. Bring it forth to the world. Your love gift goes farther than you know. Quantum Physics teaches that the whorl of a subatomic particle in your fingertip effects distant galaxies. Just imagine what our heart gift can do! Happy Holidays everyone! peace be with you, muwin
Who will carry the torch?
December 6, 2013, 4:33 pm
I like millions of others around the world are saddened by the passing of Nelson Mandela but I wonder if one of his last thoughts were who is going to pick up the torch and carry it??? Cant we all fill the void carry the torch??? This takes nothing away from this incredible man but after all I have read he would want others to carry the torch after his passing. In the end I guess its up to you and me otherwise we diminish the legacy he left behind......Jon

spiritual leaders gathered from all faiths. they looked at Decembers calendar, they were distracted after a while with story, song and dance. January came, they didn't seem to notice the harried world, cramming stores, flipping off others drivers, fighting in sales lines. and stealing toys carefully examined by elders shopping for their grandchildren. they are meeting still, in a time and place, beyond time and place.... ----------------------------------------------------------------- I have noted that over the years this time of year has progressively pissed me off! Am I becoming more the proverbial Scrooge? So much hassle, so many worried faces, so many rude people! When I listen to the Elders speak, they talk of simpler times, not times crafted by Hallmark, and Corporate America. Take care of yourself over the holiday season here are some helpful hints: -meditate, meditate,meditate -keep things simple -be love, be joy(there is no greater gift we can give people than to bring unconditional love every day, all year) -Listen to another-for many this season is not happy. Simply listen and be with them, our very presence, sometimes what I like to call,'the vigil of the unconditioned',is very powerful -take the time to enjoy what you enjoy! If it is listening to festive music go for it,if it is dance,writing,yoga,qigong=whatever it is to give you your ,'vigil of the unconditioned' with yourself -for goodness sake laugh, have fun all year. may you have a song in your heart and a smile on your face, T

My very in breath, dust from stars, it is no wonder with intention each cell vibrates. My very out breath, everything that has died in the cosmos. The pauses between elliptical bridges spanning the creative never ending cycle of this life, that life, that life, this life.... -------------------------------------------------------------------- in all the body/mind/spirit arts of the world the key element is the breath. this most basic function of our clay bodies, is also the most profound. in breath-sunrise out breath-sunset in breath-at birth out breath-at death we can go on for entire volumes about the cosmic and symbolic attributes of the breath. today we won't(thank God that gabby gus, jason goes on and on...haha). what important is to use this vehicle to ride your life in. when we do, ahh the scenery is lovely on the FREE-way. peace be with you, muwin

Hey this kind of shit runs thru my mind don't know why? Scratch my head just cant understand the lack of complexity of the human brand. Reduced to shallow conversation, fulfilling personal needs its all about me its all about me. Is this a product of the new golden age or are we so shallow we choose to look the other way. When did we lose the compassion, looking out for others in need, being true to yourself knowing there's no perfection within the human seed. But perfections not the goal the goal to be the best you can be within the complex balance that will take this human race to where it needs to be.

tiny flower bit by frost, how I mourn thee. 'Do not mourn', she whispers, 'my radiance from radiance shined for awhile. I feel my children around me, nestled in shells, they to shall blush with love, when the time is right'. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- every day we die, every day we are born, to recognize this is to understand this ride through the cosmos we are on. yesterday is a phantom tomorrow a dream, to live this very moment is to see life and death converging to the still point, to the touchpoint of calligraphy of this life and all others.... LOVE, the cosmic cueball

Melissa looked out from her cardboard box, her sister was already in prayer. her friend was on the telephone line looking down at her. 'this kid isn't going to make it', thought Raven. he took a golden ring from his feathers and looked at it. 'don't know why this translates as food, but good bye my pretty', he dropped it to Melissa just as her sister folded up her prayer rug. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ 50,000(upwards) men, women and children will die of starvation today, as they did yesterday and will again tomorrow. in this world of abundance, we must pause to think about all of the impediments that make such a tragedy happen daily. 7 generations philosophy teaches us that every act we do must benefit all beings 7 generations from now. no matter what culture,religion, or race we belong to 7 generations is a sensible approach. time is ticking for the 7th generation from now I can feel it and I do not care for the world we have made for them.let us take a moment to reflect and think about this and bring substantive change for ourselves,families,and culture we live in,,,,,,,T.......We had to shut down the fan Journal to much spamm if you want to commment go the Facebook and type in Jon Whitney you can find us there.....thanks

the pearl at the bottom of the sea....
October 3, 2012, 7:00 am
There is a monster that lurks in each of us. It does not allow for the opening of our ears but lets a gushing vile stream exit without check(our mouth). We all have thoughts some good/some bad but particularly in the west we struggle with the difficulty of truly listening.Why wouldn't we? In a John Wayne get up and grab at no matter what the cost,soundbite culture who has time to listen? We must do, right? We must get, right? This is the very nature of our discontent, as what we grab, never satisfies, what we accomplish is not enough. To borrow a Sufi expression, we must search fearlessly for the pearl at the bottom of the sea. Ahimsa starts with looking in,who am i? where am i going? why ground myself on a cultural wheel that is so obviously broken? Ahimsa starts within/without. Our examination of ourselves in other words leads to selfless non violent action. I have been stressed for time lately-more on the other thoughts about Ahimsa soon....peace be with you,T

let everyone you see, hear, feel be that one so dear to your heart. let every sound from every beings mouth be the lute you so long to hear.let every touch be as if from a lover, in those gentle times when we truly know you are loved. let everything you see be seen through eyes gifted by God.....in new england this time of year it is hard not to be intoxicated.the colors are astounding! take this AHHHH! moment-spread it to all beings you come in contact with and those you don't-this is truly a living breathing practice of Ahimsa....peace be with you,T

Hi Jon, thank you for the great post yesterday! Scandinavian researchers have developed a straw that you can stick into very polluted water that provides fresh water to the one drinking it! I wonder if Smokey's packet has this? Water is very much a real crisis and will continue to be more so.It is amazing to me that Native Prophesy predicted this countless ages ago.peace be with you,T
September 25, 2012, 2:24 am
Imagine what a world it would be if we all used such simple words as All inclusive, leave your bigotry and sterotypes at the door, sexual orentation is not a choice, give to others first especially women and children, dont judjge lest ye be judged ,lift up dont tear down an inquisitive mind,feel anger, love, hate, passion, understanding, awareness, add your own but.......using this incredible gift we have been given use these words to make a step foreword discarding the negative but realizing that being human beings we all will feel both the positive and negative yet the purest soul is one who can seperate the two and look with clear eyes and open mind choosing to live with understanding..............
Please check this out for the band.........thanks

Its a program he started to get packets that purify water to people in desperate need of safe drinking water............ reacting to contenplation can lead your soul on a new destination an imprint left behind that will make you proud and all the while your mind will be headed to new and inspiring destinations..............
