The Sanctity Of Food: Conscious Eating As A Spiritual Practice, By Carolyn Baker

SELECTION OF FRESH FRUIT AND VEGETABLES WITH APPLES ORANGES GRAPES POTATOES CARROTS BROCOLLI AND CABBAGE

The sacred within us instinctively resonates with the sanctity of food. Therefore, the growing, transporting, distribution, and consumption of food are sacred acts that deserve ritual and reverence from the moment the seed is planted in the earth to the moment we have washed and put away the plate on which our food was served. . . . → Read More: The Sanctity Of Food: Conscious Eating As A Spiritual Practice, By Carolyn Baker

Refuge, By Andy Brewin

Contemplation 3

Living without reflecting is like driving without looking. Refuge, on the other hand, encourages a collective dropping of the shoulders; breathing more slowly, counting our blessings, sifting carefully the good from the bad, doing things more thoughtfully, waking up and smelling the roses, or the coffee, depending on your preference. . . . → Read More: Refuge, By Andy Brewin

Public Health, Thermodynamics, And The Cat Food Commission, By Dan Bednarz

Poverty

The effects of government-imposed austerity[iv], erroneously claimed to restore fiscal responsibility and restart economic growth, are a reflexive (or cybernetic[v]) reaction to protect the economic interests of wealthy elites at the expense of other citizens.[vi] The funding and operation of the public health system and the array of socioeconomic factors that ultimately ensure a nation’s health[vii] are damaged by austerity . . . → Read More: Public Health, Thermodynamics, And The Cat Food Commission, By Dan Bednarz

Not The Future We Ordered: Peak Oil, Psychology, and the Myth of Progress, By John Michael Greer—A Book Review By Carolyn Baker

Not The Future We Ordered

Greer argues that the myth of progress for modernity, and especially for Americans, has transcended a “notion” and has actually become more of a civil religion—a fundamental tenet of civilization and that questioning it is tantamount to heresy. And, the emotional ramifications of questioning progress or abandoning the myth altogether are enormous. In fact, much of Not The Future We Ordered is an explanation of the psychology of coming to terms with the end of progress. . . . → Read More: Not The Future We Ordered: Peak Oil, Psychology, and the Myth of Progress, By John Michael Greer—A Book Review By Carolyn Baker

Economy, Collapse, And The Interconnectedness Of All Things, By Gary Stamper

Interconnected

While most people are paying attention to Europe’s financial woes—and they are serious—there’s a lot of instability in other places…places you might think don’t matter much, but they do. In a world of global finance, global industry, global climate, and global instability, it all matters, as all of these systems are interconnected and inter-related. It’s been called “a perfect storm of catastrophic confluences.” . . . → Read More: Economy, Collapse, And The Interconnectedness Of All Things, By Gary Stamper

Rationally Speaking, We Are All Apocalyptic Now, By Robert Jensen

Apocalypse

If we are rational and consider objective scientific evidence of environmental collapse including groundwater depletion, topsoil loss, chemical contamination, ocean dead zones, species extinction, bio-diversity reduction and climate disruption, we need to be apocalypticists, argues Robert Jensen. . . . → Read More: Rationally Speaking, We Are All Apocalyptic Now, By Robert Jensen

Mutually Assured Well Being: The Continuity Of Community And Individual Resilience, By Carolyn Baker

Interdependence

I invite the reader to review the features of community resilience and personal resilience several times. In doing so, I believe it is impossible to miss their inextricable connection and how the two types of resilience impact the other given the reality that individuals and communities foster both. . . . → Read More: Mutually Assured Well Being: The Continuity Of Community And Individual Resilience, By Carolyn Baker

Getting Out Of My Head: My “Presence” Practice, By Dave Pollard

Presence

Nevertheless, here we are, we humans, possessed of this amazing intellect that can invent a false self and a dream state ‘world’, and persuade ourselves (and/or be persuaded) that these are real, to the point we ‘forget’ our knowledge of what is really real. This is what I mean when I say that because of our brains’ complexity we have become “too smart for our own good”. . . . → Read More: Getting Out Of My Head: My “Presence” Practice, By Dave Pollard

The Really Big Transition: Saying Goodbye To The Enlightenment, Saying Hello To Consciousness, By Carolyn Baker

Contemplation 2

In the twenty-first century, industrial civilization is crumbling around us, and we are compelled to notice that a number of Enlightenment assumptions no longer apply or at the very least, have outlived their utility in a world unraveling. One of these is the notion that the universe is rational and orderly. The word that perhaps best describes the current era is chaos. So does this mean that reason is dead, and chaos reigns? Does it mean that we must choose which of the two is actually true, despite what our instincts tell us? . . . → Read More: The Really Big Transition: Saying Goodbye To The Enlightenment, Saying Hello To Consciousness, By Carolyn Baker
