Fly around the world in a plane powered totally by sunshine? That’s crazy talk! While the 2015-future shown in the Back to the Future trilogy suggested flying cars – which humanity has yet to perfect – a sun-powered plane IS a reality and the globe-circling mission is well on its way. With a more-than-decade-long commitment of vision-driven pioneers, the Solar Impulse 2 has already flown 8 of 14 legs to circle the globe.Read more

...When you really listen to a song, you can follow many “sound ingredients”, making the experience as simple or dynamic as you want. The same goes for choreography. You’re highlighting one or few sounds at a time, in a sense becoming that instrument with your body.Read more
As our twenty-fourth wedding anniversary approached, I became acutely aware of how critical I had been of my husband, Glenn, during the previous year. Although my criticism had to do with one of our businesses, my frustration and anger had spilled over into other aspects of our relationship. For nearly a year I was on edge, and I wanted to push him over it! As angry as I felt, I did not want to cause my marriage to end. What to do?
Practicing the old adage, “We teach what we need to learn,” I recalled the words I had written 3 years earlier in my book, Revolutionary Agreements:Read more
At the United Nations General Assembly in New York, U.N. held in September, member states adopted the new Sustainable Development Goals. The goals are meant to guide development priorities around the globe over the next 15 years. Critics and supporters alike are declaring them highly ambitious.
The SDGs, as they've come to be called in humanitarian lingo, replace the Millennium Development Goals, which were adopted in 2000 and expire in 2015.
The MDGs deal primarily with poverty, education and health in the poorest countries. The SDGs hit all of those topics but also tackle global inequality, environmental issues and access to technology.

Dr. Joe Dispenza is back again on Cutting Edge Consciousness for another engaging conversation with Barnet and Freeman. This round is especially interesting as the guest and hosts explore the creative space wherein something truly new can emerge. While Dr. Joe has a brand new book, called "You Are The Placebo", which serves to enrich this dialogue, the conversation is very much an extension of the two previous conversations with Dr. Joe on CEC. The ability to direct our experience hits a roadblock when it bumps up against our conditioned imagination -- only by intentionally following a feeling can we generate something that is truly "new".

With an estimated 100 million people living on the streets on any given day, and as many as 1 billion people believed to lack adequate housing, it is fair to say that the concern of homelessness is an issue that affects everyone.
We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing! ~ George Bernard Shaw
What made me ask the question
I knew I needed to play more. I literally felt myself growing years older by the days that lacked any sort of play. I was completely out of balance and I knew it but I kept thinking tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow. Then tomorrow never came and I began to fear I could never get my balance back. It was literally making me sick, tired and stressed. I felt significantly older then my fifty years and couldn’t seem to figure out what to do about it...yikes!!Read more

"One of the most sincere forms of respect is actually listening to what another has to say." ~ Bryant H. McGill
I hear it so often I can barely stand listening to it anymore (pun intended). Parents regularly complain that their children never listen to them...never. Besides the drama of that statement, I find it challenging because I see and hear how many of us, as parents, don’t listen to our children.
We are distracted by so many things: a phone call, our to-do list, work, tomorrow’s activities, tonight’s dinner...the list could go on and on.

What happens when we come together? What happens between us and inside us? Is it only our physical bodies that meet and our five senses that bridge the gap to one another and the perceived reality around us?
There must be more, much more happening in the space we inhabit. I have always wondered what drives us to noisy restaurants where conversation is almost impossible, or to sit quietly in a large darkened room with a crowd around us, watching a movie. Is some free-floating energy present that we are somehow able to ingest? What is it about a dog or cat that fills a need for companionship? Is there a living presence that they emanate? A moment of deep feeling shared by one of us can embrace and unify a group instantaneously. How does that happen?Read more
