Acceptance & Seeing Truth

"Acceptance is not a state of passivity or inaction. I am not saying you can't change the world, right wrongs, or replace evil with good. Acceptance is, in fact, the first step to successful action. If you don't fully accept a situation precisely the way it is, you will have difficulty changing it. Moreover, if you don't fully accept the situation, you will never really know if the situation should be changed."
~Peter McWilliams
Looking through some quotes today, this one stood out. I think it really hits on the fact that we all need to wake up and realize how things are today. Sure we all have our daily lives and it is easy to forget that which is affecting us by the constructs of all that we do. We must step out of what I call, "automaton thinking." Everything is automatic to us, we get up, maybe read the paper, watch the news, go to work. Day in and day out. We need to realize that really all we have is NOW. In the next second you never know what may happen, how quickly and differently our view then becomes.

Spirit of Giving: Motorola Produces Red Slvr for Bono's Product Red

In the spirit of giving and interesting ways to raise funds we found this interesting.
Motorola is producing a red version of its SLVR phone for Bono's Product Red. Motorola stated they will give five percent of the money SLVR makes each month to the Product Red initiative. Source.

From Product Red:
Product RED engages big business to raise awareness and funds for The Global Fund to help fight AIDS in Africa. We do this by teaming up with iconic brands. Launch partners are: American Express, Converse, Gap and Giorgio Armani.
RED is not a charity or "campaign". It is an economic initiative that aims to deliver a sustainable flow of private sector money to the Global Fund.

Thank you Motorola, Bono and other contributing members to the Global Fund.

Contemplation I


In most all religions I think it can be found that a common denominator is to be good to each other and expressions of unity. Even Jesus had said, "And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you." Luke 17:20-22

I am sure similar in context writings can be found in other religions. So why is there a need for killing each other in war, famine, pestilence?

Why must we complicate things, when it is so plain to see if we just follow the common denominator; things will be fine?

There was a saying that how you are in your heart, is who you are and how you shall be. Doesn't it come down to everything else just being semantics?

Is a main cause of all this a need and desire to separate ourselves? We need to have our 'own' bank accounts, our 'own' cars, our 'own' land. Are we all not human? Do we all not eat the same way, breathe the same and die the same? Do we all not exist in this very present moment with enough intelligence and ability to see and change ourselves?

Just what exactly are we trying to separate ourselves from?

Commentary & Quote I

Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future. Concentrate the mind on the present moment. ~ Buddha
What can we learn from this quote? We must see how things are now, that means living in the present. We can see how we need to listen more to one another and truly live to help others, and find in doing so; we are helping ourselves too!

Benefit of Meditation

Not that we solely recommend and endorse meditation, this article describes how insight meditation can lead to an increase in brain size along with some slowing of cognitive/memory areas of the brain. This helps to explain why yogi and other spiritualists retain more memory in their later years.

Meditation Found to Increase Brain Size
"Study participants meditated an average of about 40 minutes a day. Some had been doing it for only a year, others for decades. Depth of the meditation was measured by the slowing of breathing rates. Those most deeply involved in the meditation showed the greatest changes in brain structure. "This strongly suggests," Lazar concludes, "that the differences in brain structure were caused by the meditation, rather than that differences in brain thickness got them into meditation in the first place."
