Trail

August 29, 2007

Harmonies swim through me adjusting
Blood, flesh, breath, and the spaces in between,
Setting this whole organism to a new station
As old as protoplasm.  For a moment I think
I have died and then awakened to a fresh dream
Of stalwart ants threading a black line across
Southern sand, carrying giant crumbs, leaving
Traces of a strange intelligence for future use.

I see.  It is my story.  It is the old story
Of landing on the maker’s knee, fluttering
A bit, wriggling nervously, waiting to hear the
Invitation.  I yearn to enter the journey, marked
by ages upon ages of those who have waited for this Now.

Yawning cave and layered rock
Beckon me and still the moonrise
In a distant sky keeps the strains coming
That promise no end save in the
Beginning.

Gathering

August 29, 2007

Gathering

Parched is the land, the desert high, and cool
Breezes sweep around sage and chaparral where
Storytellers flock weaving ancient patterns
To replace worn-out idols too late enchanting
Reluctant little minds running the planet.

We come.

Late summer in this hemisphere presages
Harvest. Seeds sown centuries since took root
In hard dusty earth, burnt over by revivals, thirsty
For mist, what birds did not carry away for their own
Suppers.

Story grew.

Words proliferate and sometimes overpopulate
This small island. Betimes the scythe is crucial
For making a clearing in the field
Of story. Such nutrients as can live for years
In dry envelopes stuck in the back of drawers
Of seed catalogue companies we drop into
Hard soil, planting themes that yet may salve and save
Our fragile home.

Water them.

In my August 17 th entry “Hybrid Heroes”, I expressed how Ben Franklin and Rumi had on my mind throughout the day. In my imagination, they were each a Twin Wing of a bird I could ride, as I soar in my life. I named this bird “Benrumi”. I continue to feel Benrumi’s inspiration and guidance.

See earlier post on this site or go to my blog:  http://drlisalongworth.wordpress.com/

Yesterday two more heroes of history appeared. Robin Hood and Mother Teresa. Opposites type characters, yet both “saviors” of those in need. As I am sure you remember, Robin Hood robbed from the rich to provide for the poor. Mother Teresa, completely in love with Jesus, provided loving kindness at death’s door for the poor.

In November last year, I formed a non-profit 501 (c). Now 9 months later, Twinwing.org Foundation which connects philanthropy & free trade, continues to soar. I created Twinwing.org Foundation, from being completely out of my mind, in love with life. Forming a non-profit business vehicle seemed like a natural form to make all my dreams come true. Initially the vision appeared to me after brain surgery in 1979. I saw the whole world lit up in a rainbow, bringing together separate nations into a unified whole world.

Since then, I have been in preparation to make my dream come true. To birth a transformed world where all humanity is consciously connected-one family. Having said all that, it made complete sense yesterday that Mother Teresa and Robin Hood where forming a new partnership in my imagination.

Picture this: Mother Teresa is the right wing, Robin Hood the left wing.

Now they soar together a Twin Wing bird. They are “living transportation” helping indigenous leaders make mutually beneficial free trade with non-profit organizations.

In addition, Twinwing.org provides leading edge designs for products (like hand made iphone pouches) that city people can purchase. This provides empowerment for philanthropists and consumers, adding meaning and purpose in their lives. While at the same time, providing loving kindness to native peoples, helping them maintaining their cultures and raising their standard of living.

As life turns inside out in the 21st century, Robin Hood instead of robbing the rich, provides a valuable inner wealth to consumers. Mother Teresa instead of hospicing the near dead, helps “birth” the living “dead” into life.

I shall call this Hybrid bird, “MotherHood!”, while together we are birthing a new world!

Conception Dollar - Draft


Conception Creation

August 18, 2007

This weekend we are finalizing the art for the 10th edition of the infamous Deception Dollar (see http://www.deceptiondollar.com) , our most successful flyer ever- with over 6,000,000 in circulation.  We have also printed 500,000 Election Deception Dollars and 300,000 Media Deception Dollars.

I would love to hear your suggestions/ideas/suggested websites/ideas for the new Conception Dollar which is on the drawing board at this very moment.  These dollars have been a collaborative effort between artist, activists, webmasters, and greatly benefited from the suggestions that we have received- for example our last Deception Dollar has key words around the edges- which people can google or think about which gives clues as to the truth about 9/11.

I’d like to have the best, most inspiring, engaging, encouraging, enlightening websites on the Conception Dollar, but I can’t find all of them!  And ideas, words, to go around the edges.

What I do know, is that the dominant paradigm relies on war, terror, fear, lies to control the vast majority, and that we would like to nurture the paradigm of love, courage, peace, truth, respect.  I also think that humor has been one of our greatest allies, and if people can laugh, then they aren’t so scared, and can do things with joy and courage. So I invite your humorous suggestions as well.  My family likes puns.  You should have heard the kids groan when they asked why I put 4’s in all the corners- “Why because this dollar is For Peace, For Truth, For Justice, For Ecological Wisdom…”  I guess it should be spelled out or it might go over people’s heads. We have been accused of being too subtle with our art and images, but some people pay attention to detail, and figure things out, and some people don’t look, see, or think too deeply about whatever they are looking at.

I invite your ideas and participation in this project. 


The Way of Story

August 16, 2007

Though she can’t be with us, award-winning playwright and screen writer, Catherine Ann Jones offered the prologue to her new book, The Way of Story (www.wayofstory.com). I’ve also attached an article about the book (The Way of Story Article).

Thanks for your contribution, Catherine!

PROLOGUE

In the beginning was story. The caveman rushed back to his tribe and excitedly acted out his encounter with some Paleolithic beast. This was his story and forever after he would be remembered by this story. Every story has a sacred dimension not because of gods but because a man or woman’s sense of self and her world is created through them. These stories orient the life of a people through time, establishing the reality of their world. Thus meaning and purpose are given to people’s lives. Without story, we do not exist. The Way of Story is how we discover who we are.
