Hey, Peace Man!!

Posted on September 21st, 2009 by Clinically Clueless

logoThe following information is from the website,  The International Day of Peace (“Peace Day”)  which provides an opportunity for individuals, organizations and nations to create practical acts of peace on a shared date. It was established by a United Nations resolution in 1981 to coincide with the opening of the General Assembly. The first Peace Day was celebrated in September 1982.

In 2002 the General Assembly officially declared September 21 as the permanent date for the International Day of Peace.

By creating the International Day of Peace, the UN devoted itself to worldwide peace and encouraged all of mankind to work in cooperation for this goal. During the discussion of the U.N. Resolution that established the International Day of Peace, it was suggested that:

“Peace Day should be devoted to commemorating and strengthening the ideals of peace both within and among all nations and peoples…This day will serve as a reminder to all peoples that our organization, with all its limitations, is a living instrument in the service of peace and should serve all of us here within the organization as a constantly pealing bell reminding us that our permanent commitment, above all interests or differences of any kind, is to peace.”

Since its inception, Peace Day has marked our personal and planetary progress toward peace. It has grown to include millions of people in all parts of the world, and each year events are organized to commemorate and celebrate this day. Events range in scale from private gatherings to public concerts and forums where hundreds of thousands of people participate.

Anyone, anywhere can celebrate Peace Day. It can be as simple as lighting a candle at noon, or just sitting in silent meditation. Or it can involve getting your co-workers, organization, community or government engaged in a large event. The impact if millions of people in all parts of the world, coming together for one day of peace, is immense.

idp-newInternational Day of Peace is also a Day of Ceasefire – personal or political. Take this opportunity to make peace in your own relationships as well as impact the larger conflicts of our time. Imagine what a whole Day of Ceasefire would mean to humankind.

GO! Snuggle up in Peace!

Posted on December 30th, 2008 by Clinically Clueless

Hello flower people from Southern California!!  I hope you are enjoying your holiday season.  I wanted to share with you one of those just in case gifts that I got to keep.  It is a “PEACE” blanket that is fairly large to wrap up in unless you are our State Governor: Arnold Schwarzenegger.  It is 50″ x 60,” so I am quite comfortable.  I love the idea of snuggling in a blanket of peace…doesn’t it make you want to take a nap?

I love what the blanket states because it has to do with personal responsibility for making peace with yourself and then with others in practical ways.  For me, the phrase, “Peace begins with me” stood out the most.  I believe that you need to have peace within which includes obtaining it by giving to others.  But, it has to start by me taking action, so “peace begins with me.” 

First, GO! Read the blanket.

So, flower people what phrase stands out for you and why?

Peace to All,  CC

GO! Tend the Global Garden for World Hello Day!

Posted on November 21st, 2008 by Clinically Clueless

HELLO! from sunny Southern California.  “Okay, one down nine more to go.  Oh, what am I doing?”  Well, today (November 21st) is World Hello Day and the main objective is to greet at least 10 people today.  In person, is best, but you can be creative.  This 36th Annual World Hello Day has 180 nations participating to emphasize the importance of personal communication for preserving or establishing peace. 

 

World Hello Day begun as a response to the conflict between Egypt and Israel in the Fall of 1973.  Brian McCormack, a Ph.D. graduate of Arizona State University, and Michael McCormack, a graduate of Harvard University, worked together to promote this annual global event.

Go! Remember our Soldiers

Posted on November 8th, 2008 by Lib

The Soldiers at Lauro

Young are our dead
Like babies they lie
The wombs they blest once
Not healed dry
And yet – too soon
Into each space
A cold earth falls
On colder face.
Quite still they lie
These fresh-cut reeds
Clutched in earth
Like winter seeds
But they will not bloom
When called by spring
To burst with leaf
And blossoming
They sleep on
In silent dust
As crosses rot
And helmets rust.

- Spike Milligan

Its Remembrance Sunday, this weekend here in the UK. A day traditionally put aside to remember all those who have given their lives for the peace and freedom we enjoy today. It’s marked by wearing a mock up of a flower – a poppy! as we’re encouraged to wear our poppies with pride.

I know that it’s important to remember this day, a day of respect and a day to honour our soldiers and a day to reflect on the sacrifices offered by generations before us. Even, to remember the soldiers that are out there fighting for our futures presently.

Yet, I don’t know anyone that has fought in past wars. I understand the sacrifices that have been made and the liberty that is allowed me today but I still don’t know anyone.

As of a couple of years ago there were only 100 WW1 vets in the USA, 15 in France, 4 in Canada, 1 in the UK and none in Australia and New Zealand.

So how important is it to remember? And if it is, why?

William Lund sums it up quite nicely for me, ‘We study the past to understand the present; we understand the present to guide the future’.

Feel free to tell me about your war heroes and why its important to you to remember.

OSHOpping on day 7!

Posted on September 29th, 2008 by Jim

An OSHO 8a.m ‘Sir, room service, room cleaning ? ‘ morning call was my first glimpse of reality that earned the messenger 100 rupees. It was good he knocked otherwise I’d have probably slept the morning away and claimed man-flu although my calves were STILL slightly sore from dynamic meditation. My cold had dropped from my head onto my chest and throat now so maybe the sauna helped?

I still had plenty of vouchers left to use up for breakfast and with only 1 day of robe wearing left to GO! tucked into a bowl of cereal with Soy milk, a samosa, a bowl of yellow daal and a slice of delicious fresh papaya. Surely every other western lentil eating, Soya drinking guest here really wanted juice, coffee & chocolate?

Enjoying the listening to my Ipod mediation whilst doing a sudoku puzzle I made my way down to the OSHO campus shop….

Go! Find Some Human Rights (and get lost in the linkage)

Posted on May 15th, 2008 by Blue Collar Goddess

gstf_humanrightsbadge3  Here’s an exact copy of the post I just put up at my GSTF Portal on Xanga for The Blue Collar Goddess —–>
 
 ”Bloggers Unite is an initiative designed to harness the power of the blogosphere to make the world a better place. By challenging bloggers to blog about a particular social cause on a single day, a single voice can be joined with thousands of others to help make a real positive difference; from raising awareness for cancer, to an effort to better education systems or support 3rd world countries.”

Let’s spend some time tomorrow with this cause and spread the word!

Find badges for your website HERE.  Or, you can make one yourself! [like yours truly did by snagging OUR flower and putting it on one of the badges that I found most appealing!]

If you choose to join up with the Bloggers, leave me a comment so people elsewhere can find you, and link up with you. 

Feel free to join the Go! Smell The Flowers blogring here at Xanga for more updates on worthwhile endeavors across the net and especially with us. <——- End o’ the blah-g at my place.

… and now, it’s here at OUR place!


Think y’all are up for what we tend to do best anyway?
