Just 12 hours left to support the upcoming short film "Reactor" - exploring the Boddhisattva awakening in post-meltdown Japan. Thanks to everyone who has donated, more funds will allow us to enrich the film's storyline. This will be a very special film.

From the webpage: "When I was 8 years old, I started visiting my uncle Ian at the Mental Asylum where he lived his entire adult life. He taught me about meditation and spirituality. He always said: "everyone is asleep. Don't fall asleep. Spiritual Practice†is†Action. It's helping."

When The Tsunami hit the coast of Japan last year, the devastation was tragic. The failing nuclear power plant, in a country totally reliant on nuclear, is a crystall ball for all of us who rely on nuclear to power our modern lifestyles.

One of the core teachings of the Buddha is that our lives are dominated by stories. Sometimes they help but habitual stpries tend to cause us suffering. Stories are a kind of addiction.

Our culture is addicted to a way of life that is not sustainable. Personal stories need to change. Anyone involved in contemplative practice knows this. But cultural stories must change too...."

Thankyou Bianca and Barb!!! Robert S., even has it on his page!!...The more we help each other and take indivigual responsability for ourselves every day, creates that wave of "good" which equals "Service, as stewards of the Earth and the Human race and all that exists, here, every moment, as change is a constant and awakening takes everyday effort!!...It is in every major culture, every major religion! May God and the Universe, bless all as we strive to learn to listen and make wise descions!

Drat! You currently cannot send a green star to Bianca as you have done so in the last week - double drat! This is tremendously good, thanks, Bianca! I am so glad that the words of Uncle Ian live on - as there is little that I can do for the world except pray and pray - it is very good to know that he approved of it! And after all, to the critics - there is one person that prayer always changes without fail - you! BTW - sorry I wasn't able to see this in time - but they have raised $8,580 out of the $5,000 they wanted - brilliant!

Thank you Bianca. Your uncle had great wisdom. I wish the powers that be had as much because then we'd find cleaner sources of energy.
