The totalitarian nature of capitalism is a subtle regime penetrating more and more into areas of life previously uncolonised and uncommodified. It separates people like never before. The technological growth of the capitalist mode of production that fuels these new invasions is an increasing threat to the chances of simple survival. This threat to the vast majority ...

1991-04-08 Florence, Italy / Love Affair / Liebesaffäre / Caso de Amor / Asunto de Amor

Did I really love my affair? Did my affair truly love me? Was the affair real or fantasy? Maybe, but not likely. It certainly felt like Love. Simply caught up in the illusion of Love. Love within the context of infidelity is an encounter between a person (the object of desire) and an experience (the passion ...

Divided Souls / Geteilte Seelen / Almas Dividas / Almas Divididas

There is something about self-conscious spirituality: all kinds of religion involving preaching and moralising, and talking to oneself in a split and divided way - good 'I' against bad 'Me' - that is profoundly phoney. Nobody ever transforms himself into an enlightened pattern of life by dividing himself into two pieces: good 'I' and bad 'Me' ...

Beauty and its influence on others has been debated among cultures throughout istory. Beauty has been widely regarded as a mysterious and seductive force that reveals its power through stories of politics, marriage, power, and social status.

Of Life and Love / Des Lebens und der Liebe / Da vida e do Amor / De vida y Amor

Do not let the word Love define your Love. Love is the most powerful emotion a Human can experience. Very strange though that almost nobody knows what Love is. The word Love is not the same as your feeling of Love. The word Love is used and abused for the expression of different sets of feelings. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1nVr1Zja6is The word ...

1 % for the Planet / 1% für den Planeten / 1% para o Planeta / 1% para el Planeta

Climate change is an imminent threat, our food systems are increasingly stressed, and our lands, waters, and species are threatened like never before. If we do not act now, the viability of our planet and our quality of life face an existential threat. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5p_mD69OK-4 There may be no greater, growing threat facing the World’s children – and their ...

If I tell you to wake Up / Wenn ich dir sage Aufzuwachen / Se eu disser para você Acordar / Si te digo que Despiertes

Fact is that the planet does not need more successful people. The planet desperately needs more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers, and lovers. The planet needs people who live well in their places. The planet needs people of moral courage willing to join the fight to make the World habitable and humane. And these needs have little ...

How trees Talk / Wie Bäume Reden / Como as árvores Falam / Cómo los árboles Hablan

By 0 , , Permalink

Biologists, ecologists, foresters, and naturalists increasingly argue that trees speak, and that Humans can learn to hear this language. Trees speak constantly, even if quietly, communicating above the ground and underground using sound, scents, signals, and vibes. Trees are naturally networking, connected with everything that exists, including you. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kjvBBWsNIgY If you have ever walked in a forest on a breezy ...

Capitalism exploits Us / Kapitalismus nutzt uns Aus / Capitalismo nos Explora / Capitalismo nos Explota

By 0 , Permalink

The ultimate source of profit, the driving force behind capitalist production, is the unpaid labor of workers. Exploitation forms the foundation of the capitalist system. All the billions in bonuses for the Wall Street bankers, every dividend paid to the shareholders of industrial corporations, every dollar collected by capitalist landlords, all of this is the result ...

We are one Planet / Wir sind ein Planet / Somos um Planeta / Somos un Planeta

We were hunters and foragers, wanderers on the savannahs and the steppes. There were no border guards then, no customs officials. The frontier was everywhere. We were bounded only by the Earth and the ocean and the sky.Since we first emerged a few million years ago in East Africa, we have meandered our way around ...

Existence as such is Weird / Existenz als solche ist Seltsam / Existência como tal é Estranha / La existencia como tal es Extraña

The reason why certain people turn to philosophy - why I became a philosopher - was that, since I was a little boy, I always felt that existence as such was weird.I mean, here we are - isn’t that odd? Of course it’s odd. What do you mean by odd? Well, it’s what’s different from even. I ...

Love Now / Liebe Jetzt / Ama Agora / Ama ahora

Real Love you give without expecting anything back, and its the giving that makes you glow inside. Love means patience, Awareness, being present. And also knowing when to receive it too. But do not have any expectations, expectations will make you unhappy. It is magic, but it is not a pill. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y7rXlbHtcqM Treat it as something that is ...

Earth Democracy / Demokratie der Erde / Democracia da Terra / Democracia de la Tierra

We are all members of the Earth community. We all have the duty to protect the rights and welfare of all species and all people. Defending biological and cultural diversity is a duty of all people. No Humans have the right to encroach on the ecological space of other species and other people, or treat them ...

The greatest Skill of All / Die größte Fähigkeit von Allen / A maior habilidade de Todos / La mejor habilidad de Todos

When someone practises their will against the World in a manner that is out of rhythm with the cycles of change, they may disrupt that harmony and unintended consequences may more likely result rather than the willed outcome. Taoism does not identify one's will as the root problem. Rather, Taoism asserts that one must place their ...

Lone Traveler / Einsamer Reisender / Viajante Solitário / Viajero Solitario

I am truly a lone traveler and have never belonged to my country, my home, my friends, or even my immediate family, with my whole heart; in the face of all these ties, I have never lost a sense of distance and a need for solitude … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1NjwrWVCdYg How strange is the lot of us mortals!

Critical Branch Point / Kritische Abzweigung / Ponto de ramificação Crítico / Punto de ramificación Crítico

Those Worlds in space are as countless as all the grains of sand on all the beaches of the Earth. Each of those Worlds is as real as ours and every one of them is a succession of incidents, events, occurrences which influence its future. Countless Worlds, numberless moments, an immensity of space and time. And our small ...

Face the Facts / Sieh den Tatsachen ins Auge / Encare os Fatos / Enfrenta los Hechos

What I think an awakening really involves, is a re-examination of our common sense. We have got all sorts of ideas built into us, which seem unquestioned, obvious. And our speech reflects them; its common phrases. 'Face the facts.' As if they were outside you. As if life were something they simply encountered as a foreigner. ...

Toxic Thoughts / Giftige Gedanken / Pensamentos Tóxicos / Pensamientos Tóxicos

When someone hurts you, they can end up occupying your thoughts for hours, days, months or even years. You can not stop thinking about their behavior, and you constantly remember how they looked and what they said. This happens a lot with couples who end their relationship abruptly and results in a cycle of toxic thoughts. Toxic ...

End of the Paradigm / Ende des Paradigmas / Fim do Paradigma / Fin del Paradigma

The collapse of Wall Street in September 2008 and the continuing financial crisis very clearly signal the end of the paradigm that puts finance above real wealth created by nature and Humans, and puts profits above people and corporations above citizens. This paradigm can only be kept alive with limitless bailouts. It can only be kept ...
