    people on a very personal and physical level, which is absolutely necessary if we're going to get anywhere in accomplishing the type of system-wide change we need - - especially when it comes to the psychological hurdles in trying to stem the consumption ethic.  I don't have any experience with yoga, but i did study under a Native American shaman for a few years a while back.  From that perspective and the similarities between the two traditions, i definitely agree that there are huge untapped reservoirs of energy and insight to be gained from such an experientially-based approach.  I don't think any effort at dealing with our multiple dilemmas is going to be effective or long-lasting unless it incorporates some form of those elements.  

    Have you read David Korten's new piece on his own approach to this issue over at Yes magazine?  It's quite good, you might find some useful stuff in there to contribute to what you're trying to do.

    And i definitely understand what you are talking about when you say you are still fleshing your ideas out.  I'm breaking completely new ground on the main project i'm working on right now, myself. It is a process that requires an interesting set of skills that if you don't have you have to acquire.  It's more than a little daunting, sometimes exhilarating, and almost always exciting heading out in terrain that no one has explored before, especially when that direction is working in a positive way to create new systems and ways of thinking with a vision of a future that doesn't yet exist in anyone elses mind.

    What an extraordinary time to be alive!  Thank you again for sharing your work with us.  The more we learn of each others efforts the more we empower each other to keep at it.  It's the only way we're ever going to transform the world.

      Hallelujah! Signs and Tribulations! Signs and Tribuations!

      The Green's Biofuels Initiative Mandate has clear-cut and slash-and-burned 880,000 square MILES of pristine tropical rain forest around the world last year alone, from Sumatra to the Southern Amazon to the Eastern Congo, virgin forest laid waste for more Corporate GMO Biofuels Plantations, after the millions of yoga-practicing and asana-breathing aboriginals and artisanals were frog-marched off into jobless urban gulags to starve.

      Yeah, verily, the Green's Biofuels Initiative Mandate is forcing Americans to burn fully 50% of our human food grains at the Altar of AGW Biofuels Billionaires, and that GMO Mandate is scheduled to DOUBLE by 2018, with no sunset clause. Around the globe, like a swirling death- star vortex, food grains are stolen out of the mouths of children and slave-shipped to the US for more Biofuel Billionaire Tax Bucks, ... all paid for by US workers.

      According to the World Bank, 10,000,000 3W children are now as risk of Famine, Pestilence, War and Disease thanks to the Green's Biofuels Initiative Mandate. Entire African nations have been bought out by the Greens. But never fear, now Dow Chemical has an Agent Orange varietal that promises GMO Biofuels Plantations for All!! Soon you'll be a Biofool too!

      Now what were you saying about Sausilito's ruby shoes?
