    Nothing wrong with what you say in the vid. And on the one hand we have to turn to positive solutions from within, we can’t just blame the messed up world..but..on the other hand, we can’t pretend the mess isn’t there either, we need both. JL’s poem:

    THIS IS NO WAY TO LIVE

    by Jan Lundberg

    Living by the clock.
    Eating by the clock.
    Clocking your speed down the deathway road.
    Surrounded by walls.
    Buying things you need that you could have and should have made or grown.
    Not having money to buy the things you need and not having land that can provide them.
    Being told what to do and think by authorities who serve the rich.
    Being subject to innumerable laws designed to control a rising population.
    Getting cancer from chemical exposures deliberately allowed into the air, water and food.
    Paying pharmaceutical companies for questionable cures when the drugs are just more fossil fuel derivatives like the chemicals that gave you cancer.
    Watching a hard-working society bleed to death from wars and karmic costs of killing millions of innocents abroad over the decades.
    Being isolated so much that material things serve as friends.

    This is no way to live. The list can go on forever, such is the moral bankruptcy of our “leaders” and the failure of an educational system that requires mainly conformism.

    This is not a “This is how to live.” But think on these things:

    Growing more food locally, for everyone.
    Taking care of the land, air, and water as if they are ours and our ancestors’ and descendents’.
    Deciding for ourselves what is right, when it comes to action on any issue.
    Making decisions via consensus and not marginalizing or excluding a segment of the population.
    Spending our money in our own economy instead of sending wealth to corporations in Detroit or “Delaware.”
    Having time to spend with your family, friends, and doing what you want to do.
    Educating your own children. Having your parents and grandparents around to help teach.
    Painting or writing your masterpiece.
    Singing your song, sharing your poem.
    Healing the land as you heal your body.
    Loving all whom you chose, if welcome, and restricting no one from freedoms such as loving.
    Taking responsibility for your own life — making your destiny — by living your adventure.
    Learning whatever you can and applying it.

    When there is no TV and no petroleum, the above changes can and will be carried out and not just thought upon.

    The entire socioeconomic system is a fraud if it serves up cancer on a bun: Billions and billions of units “served,” manufactured, broken, land-filled. It’s too little too late for recycling as a solution to maintain our present habits. Best get outraged and walk out of the fast food “restaurant” before allowing one more of your hard earned dollars to be misappropriated. May love and peace come to you.

    Nice poem by JL. My own thoughts? Go and ‘steal’ and use and run with this idea..it was under my nose all along: The solution is a Multi-Dimensional version of LBYM: Living Below Your Means is well known regarding one’s finances. But also temporal-lbym (for example if you don’t have enough time to raise kids at this point in your life, don’t have them, or commit to extra work or projects, until you do) Emotional LBYM, and other dimensions too. I can elaborate on these but just reflect on “LBYM time-wise” and “LBYM emotionally” and you don’t need anyone else to elaborate for you.. (These principles also allow for some inner peace to: to try to send, even if anonymously, some positive ideas to someone else, even if your paths have crossed before, not in entirely positive ways, in the past, you are still LBYM and thus act only when you have the energy to send out something positive..well hopefully the above was positive 🙂

    Dear Jan, or whoever submitted Jan Lundberg’s poem.

    I loved the poem. It speaks to the poverty of “the American Dream” as it is practiced today. I just took a fabulous “symposium” called Awakening the Dreamer: Changing the Dream. A group of indigenous people in Ecuador reached out to North Americans when they saw the devastation happening to their ways of living, which have sustained their people for thousands of years – and invited them to help change the North American dream which is devastating the planet. It was a wonderful and inspiring symposium – virtually free- only voluntary contributions about $20 suggested – given by volunteers who care. Check out http://www.awakeningthedreamer.org for places the symposium is being offered. I took it in CT. A friend took it close to New Paltz NY the same day. “Try it, you’ll like it!”

    Hi Gail,

    The video is thoughtful. I like the picture of you and I like the part of us also being gut and heart. The challenge in living in our modern culture is to make choices, develop good boundaries and self care. Essentially we need good filters and we need each other. We need community to remind us like Michelle Obama does that while trying to end war we cannot forget the soldiers.
