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."

Working for the Common Good

Now here is something that is more in cohesion with our ideas. Working for the common good through development is also an all-around great solution.

Imagine if combined with our principles! Keep up the good work!

The Business of Development: Innovation, Profits, and the Common Good

"Hear the word "poverty", and the image of a bright-eyed child with an extended hand staring at you from the TV screen appears in your mind. Put the word "business" next to it, and the mental screen turns off, failing under the pressure of the oxymoron. Business and poverty are almost mutually exclusive; the affluence and life force of one is incompatible with the misery and lifelessness of the other. Or is it?"

It has begun

While not exactly in accordance with some of our principles, the thought and the willingness to share is being vehemently displayed! Yay to mankind for this day. Lets' hope they stay on track and get it done.

Article: Many are Feeling a Financial Burden

A prime example why change will be needed soon,

"In Brandon and other suburbs of Tampa, where gas prices are among the highest in the nation and home insurance rates have risen since last summer's hurricanes, residents say they have had all they can take.

'We're really worried about a lot of things,' said Nancy Tuttle, co-owner of a vending machine business in the suburbs here. 'The cost of gas, the cost of house insurance, the cost of medical insurance, it's just everything.'"

Article: 15 Ways to Live Longer

Since living and life is an integral part of wealth,

"Take heed: Your lifestyle choices are very significant. While there is no way to ultimately defy death, that isn't an excuse to start indulging in vices and neglecting your health. There are plenty of ways to keep the grim reaper at bay -- and many of these "secrets" result in an improved quality of life.

If you really want to live longer, then start with your attitude. Your way of thinking not only improves your outlook on life, but also how long you actually live. In 2002, researchers at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, found that optimistic people decreased their risk of early death by 50 percent compared with those who leaned more toward pessimism."

Article: Why Isn't Socialism Dead?

It intrigues me as to why there can exist no middle ground between capitalism and socialism.

Another interesting point for consideration:

"If capitalism is mankind's only rational alternative, why do so many of the governments of third world nations make it so extraordinarily difficult for ordinary people to take the first small steps on the path of free enterprise?

For de Soto, the solution lies in democratizing capital. Minimize state interference. Cut the red-tape. Make it simple to start up a business. Devise ways for the poor to capitalize on their modest assets. If a person in the USA can get a loan based on the value of his $200,000 home, why shouldn't a much poorer fellow get a loan based on the value of his $2,000 shack?"

Master Koans

This site seeks bringing forth the core of humanity which is goodness, regardless of race, religion, creed and any other individualistic close-minded belief.

How is this achieved?
Through wealth which alows people to: cure sufferings, disease and freedom to discover their true nature.

What is wealth?
Wealth and it's counterpart poverty are nothing more than concepts. They both have been created by us. It is the energies behind them that are of concern.

So you seek a balance between wealth and poverty, or how are all supposed to have wealth?
When all have discovered the true goodness of the nature/spirit within, wealth (and positive energies) will inevitably and fiercly be among us.

How are contributions utilized in ZWO?
All funds are directed toward advancement of humanity as a whole. Many will be brought before a large committee and wealth will be distributed proportionate and relative to one's own individual situational status. (or in certain situations; on a group level). Also a main focus of this organization is preservation of its' goals with increase and continue the growth/spread of wealth, it shall become self-sustaining. As a requisite a portion funds will be allocated to certain investments and interest bearing accounts.

This sounds like a futile pipe dream, it will not be attained any time soon!
Everything is a possibility. But the foundation has finally been built, whereas before it didn't exist.

You say this site is a creation of us? Please expound on this.
Wealth and goodness follows wealth and goodness, those who are aware of this nature and the forces behind wealth have been and will inherently continue shaping this site. There is no way around this.

By wealth do you specificly mean monetary funds?
We (humanity) have placed money as a part of wealth, it is a double edged sword; while it allows freedom and ability to cure sufferings, it can also do great harm if misused. But at the very core of 'correct' wealth is a true essence of peace and happiness.

What about people who lie, steal, rob and cheat?
Societies by their competitive nature have driven some to these means. If there is nothing left to steal, rob or cheat they will be of their better nature. Some may still be of a lesser nature, they shall possibly live together on islands, until their generations have evolved genetically (subject to change, there is still debate among you - the community.)

What about competitive and capitalist ways of life?
Capitalism is fine if done in the spirit of creativity and sharing. In fact capitalism is required for our society to achieve self-sustainment. Competitive tendencies will dwindle on their own accord.

I am very interested in becoming a member, how do I go about this?
By contributing you will be assigned a prefix status name and have a voice in the committee. They weight of your voice is determined by how much you have contributed. Certain people have obtained a better connection with wealth energies, and as such will be given more recognition. They deserve the recognition they have achieved and demonstrated.

Why have I not heard of this before?
It has existed for awhile but not exactly in this form. It has been brought here as a central gathering/organizing place of those which possess like knowledge.
