Confronting Death with Pets, Music and Good Hair

Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on Earth.

Confronting Death with Pets, Music and Good Hair

What can you do for someone who has less than three months to live? Those who volunteer with Dover Park Hospice (DPH) come face to face with this question on a regular basis. Sounds grim, but it's not. The volunteers provide music, massage services, food and playdates with pets for the patients to enjoy, spreading happiness with a smile, a song, a touch. It doesn't take much, and yet it means a lot to the patients. { read more }

Be The Change

Like a smile, happiness is infectious. See if you can bring joy to someone today, with a smile, a warm comment, a song, or a touch of your sympathetic hand.

Change #2: Bring joy to the patients of Dover Park Hospice or a hospice near you by volunteering,paying visits to the sick, reading them books, or in any way you can.

Change #3: Take your pet to visit with someone who may be suffering, ill, or lonely. Find a way to make them feel someone cares with warmth and flowers.

The Montana Moms Who Welcomed Refugees Into Their City

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.

- Margaret Mead -

The Montana Moms Who Welcomed Refugees Into Their City

"Our goal is not to convince people what we're doing is right and what they're doing is wrong," she says. "Our goal is just to create a more welcoming environment for refugees to call home." This is the goal of Soft landing, a non-profit organization in Missoula Montana. When seeing the now famous photo of Aylan Kurdi, the three year old boy who drowned during his family's attempt to flee Syria, required something deeper than emotional reactions; Mary Poole began a dialog, with herself and others, that has helped her community become more welcoming to and informed about international refugees. Read more about that journey in this article by Gabriel Furshong from YES magazine. { read more }

Be The Change

Consider the last image you witnessed that made you weep with emotion - then begin a dialog, within yourself and out loud with at least one other person, to explore the deeper actions those emotions are calling you to...and let a new adventure unfold. { more }

What Future Does Humankind Have?

Real dialogue is where two or more people become willing to suspend their certainty in each other's presence.

- David Bohm -

What Future Does Humankind Have?

In June of 1983, world-renowned theoretical physicist David Bohm and globally acclaimed philosopher J. Krishnamurti sat down for a conversation on the future of humankind. With Bohm at 66 years of age and Krishnamurti at 88 years of age, both men brought a lifetime of thought and wisdom to the table. Enjoy this deep conversation that touches on the evolution of thought and consciousness, the reality of time, and the trap of illusion. { read more }

What Future Are You Living Into Being?

 
This short video is a call to face the unpleasant truth of climate change and global warming. It is a story of hope and a story of loss, the narrator explains, adding that "we don't create this story by telling it. We create it by living it. So to live a story that combines hope and doom is to walk courageously into the pain of loss, knowing that there's something worth doing afterward." He invites us to find that 'something' we love enough to walk toward even without knowing the outcome, whether saving the planet because nature is worth saving, or preparing a decent future for our children and their children.
