a-pinkdanceganeesh    This delighful little image represents Ganesh, the remover of obstacles, in the Hindu tradition.  He’s easy to love if you practice hatha yoga.  Ganesh, is also considered by many to be the patron saint for astrologers.     I found the following petition in my email box yesterday.  Om shanti, shanti, shantihi.

Obama Administration Requests Info on Planetary Challenges

 

The Obama Administration has asked the “Evolutionary Leaders” to

communicate about what is transpiring on the planet, and how we can

change the course of the unprecedented events that are challenging

this planet. This is a window of opportunity that must be taken! A

deadline was given for this information to be conveyed to the Obama

Administration.

The Evolutionary Leaders like Deepak Chopra, Gregg Braden, Michael

Beckwith and many, many others, gathered together to write up the

information to present to the Obama Administration. They are also

asking us to sign a petition to show the Administration how many

people are in favor for these changes to occur. They need 10,000

signatures. We need your help to reach that number and beyond!

Below is the information presented to the New Administration. The

petition link will follow with the next post:

By the Evolutionary Leaders

The human family is in the midst of the most significant

transformation of consciousness since its emergence in Africa over one

hundred thousand years ago. Consciousness has been evolving for

billions of years from the first cell to us. We are becoming aware

that through our own consciousness the universe can know itself. This

awareness reveals incredible new potential for our individual and

collective humanity.

Simultaneously, we are the first species on this Earth aware that we

can destroy ourselves by our own action. This may be the greatest

wake-up call to the evolution of consciousness since the origin of

Homo sapiens.

We now realize that we are affecting our own evolution by everything

we do. This knowledge awakens in us the aspiration to become more

conscious through subjective practices including meditation,

reflection, prayer, intuition, creativity, and conscious choice making

that accelerate our evolution in the direction of unity consciousness

and inspire us to deeply align our collective vision.

THE CHALLENGE

At this juncture in human history, urgent global crises challenge us

to learn to live sustainably, in harmony and gratitude with one

another and with the living universe. The changes required of humanity

are broad, deep, and far reaching. Only by acting swiftly and

creatively can we birth a planetary culture that will bring well-being

to every form of life in the Earth community.

The good news is that a compelling new story of our potential as a

whole human species is emerging-a story of collaboration, citizen

action, dialogue and new understandings propelled by unprecedented

levels of democratic freedom, multicultural exchange, and access to

communication technologies. It is nothing less than the story of our

collective evolution.

OPPORTUNITIES FOR ACTION

We recognize that the inner and outer aspects of life evolve together.

A dramatic awakening in consciousness will involve an equally dramatic

shift in outward aspects of our lives. In particular, we see the

following as vital opportunities for our conscious evolution, both

personally and collectively:

Cultivating a Paradigm of Aliveness: We regard the universe as deeply

alive and conscious by nature. In a living universe, our sense of

subtle connection and participation with life around us is the basis

for a compassionate and cooperative approach to living.

Educating for an Evolving Consciousness: Awakening consciousness is

the foundation for all the change we seek to see in the world. We can

work to elevate our capacity for conscious reflection and creative

action in our personal lives as well as our collective lives as

communities. We must support research and educational strategies that

optimize human capacities and explore the nature of consciousness.

Restoring Ecological Balance: The balance of planetary ecosystems is

fundamental to our survival. We must reverse the pollution of our

global commons-the water, air and soil that nourish all life. We must

encourage the proliferation of clean, renewable energy sources and

expend all necessary resources toward mitigating the effects of

climate change.

Encouraging Conscious Media: We must find innovative ways to use the

new electronic media as the mirror of our positive evolutionary story,

investing in their capacity to reach across differences of generation,

culture, religion, wealth, and gender to build a working consensus

about our collective future.

Engaging in Social and Political Transformation: More sustainable ways

of living will require the support of a more conscious democracy and

vibrant civil society from which more enlightened leaders will emerge.

All individuals should be encouraged to use their gifts to create

participatory, responsible and compassionate models of governance.

Working for Integrity in Commerce: Conscious businesses that are aware

of the scope, depth, and long-range impacts of their actions are key

to achieving sustainability. Business must become an ethical steward

of the Earth’s ecology and consciously establish an economic basis for

a future of equitably shared abundance.

Promoting Health and Healing: The science of mind-body-spirit health

has demonstrated the profound connection between the health of a whole

person and the health of the system in which he or she lives. Whole

systems healing, respecting both traditional knowledge and modern

sciences, must be supported in physical, social, and spiritual domains.

Building Global Community: The new story is about all of us who share

this planet. Together, we can create a culture of peace that

eliminates the need for armed conflict, respecting and appreciating

the glorious diversity of our human family.

YOUR PARTICIPATION IS VITAL

Our group has done its best to articulate possibilities for the

evolution of consciousness at this crucial moment in time. Please

reflect on this document, feel what resonates in your being and calls

forth a response on your part. We invite you to discuss it with

others, continuing this global conversation by adding to it the wisdom

that is uniquely your own.

Together, let us co-create a new narrative of conscious evolution that

is a call to individual and collective action, birthing the most

significant transformation of consciousness in history. Join in the

Call to Conscious  Evolution by signing the pledge now.
