A few excerpts from "When You Wake Up" From Whole Life Times, a free (!) publication in the L.A. area.
"...how the environmental movement might benefit from combining 'the mystic's fire of passion for God with the activist's fire of passion for justice.'"
..."It is an attempt to bring into the core of human affairs the direct passion of the divine feminine for equality, harmony and justice in every realm and on every level. At its essence, it is revolutionary."
"We need also to give up the narcissistic belief that the divine will do everything for us, whatever we do. The divine cannot force us to choose life and hope. I am not at all interested in airy-fairy dissociative spirituality. We have no time for that kind of fancy indulgence now. We have to step up and become spiritual adults and work out with the divine consciously, passionately and humbly. This is a quantum leap and will involve an ending of denial, an acceptance of the need for profound transformation and the willingness to pay the price for that transformation and be responsible to the work in the real world that it demands."

From Defenders of Wildlife:
Today, Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff announced that the Bush Administration will waive environmental and land use laws along 470 miles of the border -- a gross abuse of power that could harm border communities and jaguars and other wildlife.
Call your Senators and Representative now and urge them to do everything they can to stop this awful abuse of power and protect our wildlife and border communities.
The following contacts obviously do not apply for those outside my district, but call YOUR senator and voice your opinion.
- Henry A. Waxman - (202) 225-3976 or (323) 651-1040
- Barbara Boxer - (202) 224-3553 or (559) 497-5109
- Dianne Feinstein - (202) 224-3841 or (415) 393-0707
The waivers are highly controversial with environmentalists and border communities, which see them as a federal imposition that could damage the land and disrupts wildlife.
