This post is to remind us that we are born of Stars (The Living Universe, Elgin) and that we are the light with the power necessary to change the way poor perceptions have  misguided life. It is also the year of the dragon, wow all this magick is now!!

Foreclosure Quilts

This post came my way at the best time. Last week i proposed a quilting workshop to the Women in Occupy Seattle group. This came after an email from the co-op list with an Occupy the Economy lead in. As co-ops are part of the transition towards a diverse economic model and many are savvy on sustainability and the like, i am hoping to see partnering teach-ins across the nation. Problem and solution (one of many) together like jack, cool.

".... start an Oc quilt full of images, ideas etc on the movement , a fiber arts piece that can show in the gallery and tell a story of many pieces coming together to create something new and yet heartfully, mindfully familiar. A symbol of cooperation ...i can't wait to see it!
happy January!

Where are Seattle lights?

Birds on a Wire - wall in U District
There is some great graphic art and music coming out of Occupy. Artists and musicians were/are my mentors. They showed me a world school failed to reveal. (Lies My Teacher Told ME by Loewen) Occupy is helping expose the trail of lies and abuse hidden under flag waving rhetoric and blind acceptance to capitalization. We were taught everything needed to be abstracted, objectified and priced. Now people are gathering together and asking why? People are sking for more value, more respect more democracy..They are demanding transparency, truth and and an end to systemic battering of human spirit, dignity and their ability to live healthy , whole lives.
We are seeking autonomy from the old hierarchical top down grubbery that is resulting in a nihilism, a squeezing and shrinking of things that matter like clean air, water, living soils, healthy bodies, minds and spirits.
This is how we as a species, a culture of humanity,will move from an industrial, hierarchical state of developmental retardation. We are moving forward, being the conscious evolution.

One of my favorite music videos is "Violence Breeds More Violence, Right? 
another is Occupy: We Are The Many.

Seattle is home of so many talented people, please contact Peoples Media Arts Uprising 2012, show up, and help the world understand how energy focused will create the next story.

The Immune Response

Love this video.
Paul Hawkens understands the global biorhythm. The patterns of nature, self, culture - all are imitative, repetitive and yet autonomous within the whole. We are just a fractal of others and more! Seeing how life relates to itself really pushes the potential of our personal energy. This further validates how we impact paradigm change by being the change. This also validates how working in groups can facilitate learning as we reflect and resonate with others. Groups thus create more exposure which aids the immune response systems.

Now i just copy and paste the bio truths into the manmade construct formularies and viola, a picture is revealed again. This shows how we can counter much of the dis-ease our economic system enabled by acting in the space we create for the new construct.

The focus on profit distorted perceptions, created a false reality akin to a cancerous growth model- ah like that just can't be good right?

2012 is healing and blooming.

New Years Day + 1

January 2nd, i woke to "The Matrix" and saw it in a whole different light. The humans aren't the virus, the programming is bad. The Matrix isn't a machine or equation, it is something vastly superior and love is how we are able to understand and/or connect with "it."

Consider the phrase "if you love someone set them free, if they return, they love you." (adaptation) We were once free, then awoke to consciousness only to become entangled in our own and other's egos. We were snagged by ideologies that created systems that hooked us in at the level of the humans who made them up. As those system creators were intent on "owning the world," "winning the war against nature," and other oddities they have come close to achieving their goals. Monopolies hidden under corporate facades are calling the shots and ecosystems are collapsing. However their goals now appear vacuous, ill informed, insane even.

All along the way, a few of the people asked questions. They challenged the premise and beliefs. They questioned the goals. They queried the results.

As people woke up, they talked to others and started unplugging from the system. Now every day this is happening ever more. We are setting ourselves free. We are returning to love.

New Years Day

The first song i heard (just after midnight -PBS) in 2012 was Cold Play's "Fix You." Someone comes to my mind here, despite rational intervention, it is what is. As feelings, subtly or not so, rule the rational mind, this one is for faith to handle. I trust my intent for good to align with a natural, larger good.

As i have been calling 2012 the year of healing and transition, hearing this song was an affirmation. This is my year to cross over. I do not know what that means. I will by 2013.

I have an idea that we need to heal gender and generation chasms in order to heal the other rifts between peoples. This is a synchronistic pursuit, as personhood is such a mixed, tangled thing. We are bound to set off fireworks, both dangerous and beautiful.

So this means scouting in territories where tradition has built thousands of forts. We need to storm all the barricades and set life free. Freeing our selves, frees others. This will enable us to come into states of fuller potential.

We need to appreciate each other for who we are and not who we want others to be for us. This will translate across all the other borders. This is how barricades crumble, they dissolve with out attention. This we can do.

Hello 2012

Promise is a granddaughter born
with a spiky do, universe grins!

Tis the year of Transition, setting the direction for the Transformation. However as time was a system made for tracking seasons, it is a cumbersome tool for things with no moon phases or fixed points. Good labels are a matter of hindsight, but without foresight we fail to get out of ruts.

So playing with energy and intent, here is my take:

Transition is the step up and out, towards hope, towards global healing. Transformation is the next illumination.

In other words, transitions, transformations, epiphanies and evolutionary leaps are constantly popping up all over the "timeline." Each person progresses at the speed they are able. i think starts, stops and do-overs are how we learn best. It's a timeline through a kaleidoscope.

Transforming a whole wrong minded culture is big. But we must in order to thrive as individuals. This is the new paradigm of the whole.

However, we are culturally brainwashed. Some of it like, "thou shall not steal" is still relevant, but a lot of it is not so much. Much of what we are taught is stuff deemed necessary by "they that rule," so "they" can continue their good thing. This means we get a twisted version of facts to swallow. (Funny as designing for comfort practically screams of developmental stagnation which explains the rut! Our brains thrive on challenge, but we have allowed this lesser state to hunker down and settle in)

Back to time; on the way past Rome, feudalism and into the Renaissance there were tweaks. Enlightenment brought on revolutions and the new elitists joined the ranks. (Our Founding Fathers and their wealthy alliances)

The profit minded industrialists became the new players on the block. They quickly aligned with regulators and policy makers. Their "success" led the west to see the world as a vast machine. Life "the mechanism" could be controlled, organized and counted. Whereas nature was viewed as chaotic and frightening, machines helped humans feel powerful, safe and in control of their domain. These humans felt they were winning the "war against nature."

Now we understand that way of thinking is about to take down the life support systems of the planet. While corporations shuffle to own the pieces of our collective biosphere, We the People are standing up and yelling "Back Off!" (India suing Monsanto!! after Dow and Bhopal she has had enough, Occupy Wall Street going global, more)

We are not as suicidal or as brain dead as the systems we are plugged into. We are part of the blooming, messy, natural cycle. We are Nature. We are not machines we are far MORE! The obvious doesn't wear a business uniform or khakis, the obvious wears truth as best it can.

AKA, the system we (living beings) set up has declared war on itself, is this classic or what?

OK so the transition is to start on the healing. We need to wake up from the e-drugged state of
* dependent energy into an appreciative and mindful energy. We all have a lot to do. This is good, this is change.

This is something we can do for ourselves and others. Start with the professionals, read and explore your personal territory while you learn. Then when you feel secure enough in your knowing heart, peel back the covers and share. Invite others to do the same.

Our friends and loved ones know us best. We can start there to build the trust and the spaces for healing in our lives. Then get braver and speak up at every opportunity. Change waits for no one, it is the direction that counts.

The shows i am doing with the Kerf International Exhibits and fashionRIP Project's "Peoples Media Arts Uprising 2012" are experiments in all of this. I know only from where i am, and i know i must participate to nurture the more, and so it goes. So we all go.

, welcome. May we learn together to thrive as whole beings in a living, energy filled, dynamic Universe.

Dependent energy: our food system (esp refined sugars and carbs, now GMOs and pharma frankens- patents mean $, nature is "free" until Dow/Gates pull out heritage disaster food relief from the Arctic..OMG! what price are "we" willing to pay, who are "WE?") oil and petrol chemical by products (plastics in medical devices to alleviate the symptoms of diseases caused by our Wars and from the toxins in the plastic life cycle) apps on smart phones hooked to corporate vampires, too much Facebook, too little face time. Our dependencies (addictions) on created needs will never be satisfied here, even if we had an infinite planet to carry out the experiment, which we do not, so the game is over! Please everyone, help us all move on!!
