Nature Peace 12

How can one truly love outwardly when our own inner heart is in decay? The war on hate must start from within.

"We are the thief who has stolen the precious gifts of Love, Joy, Peace and Play from the antechambers of our heart and we are the only ones who can return them."
Excerpt from an article entitled "Internal Peace"

Internet Radio — Day Of Silence

Do you like to listen to online streaming audio from these sites?
Well you won't be able to listen to them today! In fact, if something doesn't happen by July 15, you won't be able to listen any longer.

We're not talking about the infamous sites like Napster where people were able to freely download and exchange cd quality mp3 files. We're talking about live streaming audio that functions no differently than radio stations. There is no way of forcasting what is about to play and you can't keep the music. If you want to hear a particular song, you have to listen and hope they play it again. The benefit to such broadcastng? Diversity! You get exposed to new or rare music that otherwise would not be broadcast on your local "shore" radio stations.

The "Day of Silence" was organized to draw attention to an impending royalty rate increase that, if implemented, would lead to the virtual shutdown of this country's Internet radio industry.

Participating streams will alert their listeners that "silence" is what Internet radio may be reduced to after July 15th, the day on which 17 months' worth of retroactive royalty payments -- at new, exceedingly high rates -- are due to the SoundExchange collection organization, following a recent Copyright Royalty Board (CRB) decision.

Major webcasters like Yahoo! Launchcast, Rhapsody, and, in addition to some terrestrial broadcasters' such as many Public Radio stations who offer online simulcasts, will silence their streams along with other Day of Silence participants.

Listeners are urged to take action TODAY by calling their representatives in Washington D.C. and urging them to help our industry by supporting the Internet Radio Equality Act.

Random Art of Kindness

I've walked past this sign a bazillion times and every time I do, I think to myself "What a neat place — what a drab sign". I didn't want to complain about the blahness of it, and I personally did not think the owner would complain much if it were modified in this way. So I decided to perform a "Random Act of Kindness". You ever hear of one of those?

Back in the 80's and 90's there was a neat movement called "Random Acts of Kindness". This movement encouraged folks to anonymously do something nice for other people. I first fell victim to this as I pulled through a toll booth only to find out that a perfect stranger in front of me payed my way through. It felt so good to know there were people in the world that were so kind to others without wanting something in return. I had no way of thanking the person, so I began to do the same for others whenever I went through toll booths or noticed someone's parking meter was about to expire.

Since those days, cities have actually outlawed the act of anonymously paying someone else's parking meters. It must be a power thing, or rather they WANT people to park illegally so they can fine them. Personally, I think it just plain sucks to make an "Act of Kindness" into something illegal. If that has to be the case, I guess I shall be an outlaw.

It's Too Beautiful Outside

Currently outside the weather is sunny, temperature steady at 79°.

It's amazing that they make you travel to work in weather conditions as drastic as these and encourage you to stay home and enjoy the blizzards and hurricanes.

Get out and get spiritual!

"Do Nothing to Change Your Life"
Story found at Church House Publishing

In London, the Rt Revd Stephen Cottrell, the Bishop of Reading, is known to stop commuters in their tracks as he hands out egg timers at his local mainline train station with this challenge: take three minutes of silence a day to transform your life.

Bishop Stephen is urging the country to discover what happens when we simply stop and rest, in a passionate plea for the nation to ditch endless ‘to do’ lists, constant streams of emails, and an increasingly ‘24/7’ culture.

Instead, by binning instant tea and coffee in favor of traditional methods that create time for reflection during their preparation, appointing a ‘happy hour’ when all televisions and radios in the house are switched off, baking bread, or simply enjoying a lengthy lie-in, the bishop’s book encourages readers to appreciate the need to create pauses in daily life – for our own, and society’s, health and wellbeing.

Rt Revd Stephen Cottrell tells people to take daily opportunities to just pause, wait and ponder. He argues that taking such ‘time out’ can help kick start an adventure of self-discovery and creativity that could transform the way we see life. For Christians, he argues, this fresh perspective of relishing every moment with a greater attentiveness will improve our relationship with God.

Following news that an international study has shown that the pace of life in our cities has increased by 10 per cent in the last decade, the bishop’s warning about the danger of not taking rest and play seriously is a timely one.

Bishop Stephen criticises ‘time saving devices’ as simply escalating the expectations upon us to cram more into each day; and suggests that “By learning to sit still, slow down, by discerning when to shut up and when to speak out, you learn to travel through life differently. There is new delight and purpose in the mundane and the ordinary things of life. Making tea becomes a treat. Travelling to work an adventure.”

Biship Stephen has even written a pocket size book called "Do Nothing to Save Your Life", but so far I've only found it available in London England or online at
this site.

If you can find it available in the U.S. market, please let us know.

Father's Day

I know this has little to do with anti-hate propaganda, but it IS Father's Day. So in honor of my father, I wanted to post one of the most special gifts I had ever received.

Pemberton has always been a special retreat for my gal and I to take a breather whenever life's struggles got one of us down. It has many trails through the woods and holds much historical character for the shore's native folk. My father (who had never been to the shore) heard one of us mention this special place in conversation only a day before my wedding.

On the day of our wedding, the shore got blanketed with a light dusting of snow (unusual for the shore that late in the year). Without the families knowledge, my father disappeared in the early morn and managed to find this place on the back-roads near Salisbury.

The next day (after our wedding) he gave us this painting (that he did himself, and got framed) of that special place that my new wife and I had enjoyed so much over the years. — Thanks Dad

Nature Peace 11

"The world is at war and the human race is in travail and mortal combat. The dark night of hate hath taken over, and the light of good faith is blotted out. The peoples and kindreds of the earth have sharpened their claws, and are hurling themselves one against the other. It is the very foundation of the human race that is being destroyed. It is thousands of households that are vagrant and dispossessed, and every year seeth thousands upon thousands of human beings weltering in their life-blood on dusty battlefields. The tents of life and joy are down. The generals practice their generalship, boasting of the blood they shed, competing one with the next in inciting to violence. ‘With this sword,’ saith one of them, ‘I beheaded a people!’ And another: ‘I toppled a nation to the ground!’ And yet another: ‘I brought a government down!’ On such things do men pride themselves, in such do they glory! Love--righteousness--these are everywhere censured, while despised are harmony, and devotion to the truth."

'Abdu'l-Baha, Selections from the Writings of 'Abdu'l-Baha, p. 2

The Fart Face

If you are amidst a conversation with a group of poeple and someone says something that's out of line and puts them into the category of a HATER, you can approach the situation with one of the following strategies:

1. Hate along with them. Course this will not make you very well liked among many others.

2. Haul off and hitt'em. Doing this feels justifiably rewarding, until you realize that you've just crossed over the land of Hater Haters, which at times can make you look twice as much as a Hater than the Hater himself.

(Or Use The ¿Y-Hate? approach...)
3. As soon as they say something hateful, simply look at them and without saying a word, give the look as if someone had just farted and continue on. In this case, the Hater is usually too self involved to notice that you are in fact putting him down, but often it begins a process in witch the Hater begins to self analyze what really stinks. Himself.

Who stole me lucky hate symbol?

In 2000, Anti-PC hysteria had reached new heights on Boston's South Side. An urban legend running wild in Southie is that the Boston Housing Authority had banned shamrocks in the projects -- as a hate symbol.

A weary BHA spokesperson wrote that the supposed ban "is totally and completely false and has been fueled by very biased and incorrect reports," reported SALON. But that didn't stop newspapers from the South Boston Tribune to the Dublin Tribune from reporting the myth as fact.

The story apparently got started during a diversity training session, when somebody suggested non-Irish people -- especially Puerto Ricans -- might not appreciate the shamrock symbols plastering public housing in the traditionally Irish neighborhood. After a BHA staffer failed to deny the supposed shamrock ban, the story blew up -- and hasn't been quelled since.

The value of love will always be stronger than the value of hate. Any nation or group of nations which employs hatred eventually is torn to pieces by hatred...
