Dear Friends,
I am away from C2 for the time being, life decided I needed to spend more time in reality & less time in cyberland.  Please forgive my absence, all is well, just busy!  I ask for mail concerning news to be withheld until I return; I appreciate your help in keeping my inbox uncluttered. 
Thanks to all; be well, but most of all, be kind! We are One. Blessings. x

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I believe in The Universal Mind.
I believe in one humanity; every man my brother, every woman my sister.
I believe in one common freedom of thought and expression established among all races and nations, and one world of unity and cooperation in one purpose of mutual love and understanding.
In this, to this end, I believe all may attain the one great goal in life – universal love, peace and happiness.

May we each become an expression of love in action. May our words become heavenly inspiration in tone and upliftment.


If I Were Pope...



If I were pope,


I'd proclaim the end of my infallibility


and banish the word sin from the doctrines of faith


I'd ask half the bishops and cardinals


to replace themselves with a thoughtful woman


and complete their ministries in a prison or homeless shelter



If I were pope,


I'd pay the mystics to write poetry all day


and have their words read at the Sunday Masses


I'd pay the prophets to upload their message


in five minute videos


for youtube viewers around the world


I'd hire a thousand displaced workers


to construct a new Sistine Chapel and cover it with mirrors


instead of male images



If I were pope,


I'd announce a contest


for 10 new sacraments that celebrate


peace-making, justice, and interfaith creations.


I'd send envoys to the villages


to talk about birth control


and distribute condoms wherever they are needed.


I'd establish a tuition-free college in every country


to train young students how to think


non-violently and act ethically.


If I were pope, I'd convert closed churches


to housing for the needy


and meeting places for the marginal and walking wounded



I'd buy farms in rural places


and dedicate each one to organic farming


and cooperative, sustainable, community-based agriculture.


I'd convert every old Motherhouse and seminary


into a training center for spiritual activists, cultural creators


and community collaborators.


I'd auction off my skullcap, my mozetta cape and my darling red shoes


to the highest bidder and send the money to Haiti


for the construction of schools and health care centers.



I'd sell my Fisherman's Ring on ebay


and donate the proceeds to the Gulf shrimpers.


I'd trade my red and gold embroidered fascia


(the stole with the fringes) for a villa in Tuscany


and give free spa retreats to women who've served the church


for five years or more.



If I were pope, I'd throw a party at the Vatican


and invite everyone who's left the church


because they didn't feel welcomed.


(The overflow crowd would be treated to weekends


at Italian vineyards.)



If I were pope, I'd announce my retirement,


and as my last act in office, at the final party,


I'd ordain to the priesthood any woman who was ready,


marry any gay couple who wanted my blessing,


and marry any priest, male or female.


Then I'd get in my jammies,


say a prayer of gratitude,


and crawl into bed for a much needed nap.

in the world but not of it."

    Discovered this on TV today, quite by accident, as I was resting from household chores with my heating belt on. It had already started, so I didn't know how much I'd missed. Rushed to computer to see if it'd been posted somewhere so I could see it from the beginning. I just loved it & thought my dearest friends would appreciate it, too. The artwork's so lovely & the story, so true, is told so well. Such a delight to see the story unfolding in such an original & artistic way. Hope you'll enjoy it!

    Hi Peace Monger!
    I still need people to sing and write with on songs of Peace and Earth, Rights and Sustainability!
    I have 13 song ideas posted as of today, so if you or anyone you know is interested in being a part of this we can build on those or work on something you have or start fresh.
    This can be a collaboration over the net.
    More info and a link to songs here...
