As we enter the 21st Century it is clear that we have entered an unprecedented global age in which our diverse cultures, religions, philosophies, worldviews and perspectives encounter one another in the marketplace of our global village. It is now clear that our future sustainability on this planet calls for radical advances in our rational and human capacities to negotiate the powerful forces between worlds as the human family moves towards a sustainable global civilization. ~ Ashok Kumar Gangadean
Diversity + Global: Ashok introduces a very simple yet powerful diagnosis of where we are as a species. With our collective, diverse cultures, religions, philosophies, worldviews, and perspectives, we need to learn to live and work together in our ever-growing, complex global village and marketplace (I would add to LIVE TOGETHER and care for our ONE, LIVING PLANET). To survive, he suggests the prescription is radical advances in our rational and human capacities to negotiate the powerful forces between worlds.

What does it feel being One Heart wondering? How does One Heart beat - the first time? To the Ancients, Zep Tepi?
I am the water loving you Always, I pivot on the point of Timelessness bathing in resonance, the heart beat heard in a dance of singularity.
Living water holds the light of the waxing waning moon. Water, the tide, the heart of the heart of the heart of life yet unfurled.
By Tony Davis
Years ago, I worked at a homeless shelter in downtown Denver. Part of my job entailed helping people get their day started and as part of that I utilized my spontaneous sense of humor, a lot of clowning gear and quite often played music from local radio stations over the facility's PA. I was famous with my clientèle for always being able to make them feel good about the potentials of their day and send them off with a smile.Read more

This. This is We the People. We are different colors. Different ages. Different sizes. Different genders. We have challenges and disabilities and privileges. We are smiling, talking, and expressing ourselves in our own unique ways, from our clothes to hairstyles to the ‘causes’ that matter and motivate us. We are ghosts from the past and hope for the future. We care for one another. We listen to each other; we might even inspire each other as we insure diversity, liberty, and justice for ALL. We serve the greater good of the whole. We are evolution in process.
This is We the People, allowing each other the freedom and right to live, express, and create without fear or suppression. We gather in one room together intertwined with one purpose… . to follow the Universal evolutionary impulse that guides humanity forward, manifesting our fullest potential while continually designing a true and functioning democracy.
"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."Read more

This music video, for the iconic song that made Redbone the first Native American band to achieve a Top 5 single on the Billboard Hot 100, chronicles the experiences of a spiritual traveler who leaves home to explore a new world. The film is inspired by a variety of sources, from graffiti to magical realism, mixing reality with the fantastic, the past with the future, and reexamining pop-culture imagery in the context of contemporary events. "Come and Get Your Love" offers a look into the living and changing culture of Native America in the 21st Century through the eyes of the film's mythic traveler.
A song dedicated to the World Water Law and World Water Year 2021. The proposal for a World Water Law invites all of humanity to unite around the radical healing of the planetary Waters and Water cycle. This foundational Law works to ensure that all humans and animals have guaranteed access to natural, uncontaminated Water. It holds each and every individual, organization, business, sector and government fully accountable for their impact on Water. Ultimately, the World Water Law activates a whole-system healing response that addresses many of the root causes of our escalating global challenges. The World Water Law is the first initiative towards the global adoption and implementation of Codes for a Healthy Earth ~ www.codes.earth For more information please visit: https://www.codes.earth/waterlawRead more
"Geometric Art has fascinated me for a long time in many ways and in this video I wanted to demonstrate how geometric form connects the different layers of our realities and I wanted to inspire you to reflect upon the connections that are demonstrated in this video. It has been a long journey leading up to this video. This introduction video summarizes my understanding of Geometric Design & Art. Something that I wanted to do for a long time but was not yet capable of because of the vast amount of information related to this knowledge. I have finally finished a part of the challenge. Yet it essentially is nothing more than a short introduction of this subject." ~Dearing Wang

(ART: Mary Southard)
We are living in unprecedented times. The 2020 COVID-19 pandemic has completely shifted our understanding of ourselves and the interconnected reality we live in. This global wake-up call has created a unifying pathway to embody wholeness, expand unity awareness, and generate large-impact sustained change. We have a unique opportunity to fundamentally transform all of our outdated and dysfunctional social systems with a deeper understanding of wholeness.
This universal call to action will be more wholly efficacious when considered a radical, transformative reset for personal, cultural, and planetary whole-systems health and healing. Considered within the lens of conscious evolution and a whole worldview, our emergent response to myriad growing challenges must align with the ancient wisdom and new science of unitive wholeness, using nature’s design and the principles of Life for the good of the whole.Read more

The coming days and months will be increasingly contentious. But we need not fall prey to the spreading divisiveness and factionalism. Among its less heartening effects, the global pandemic has spawned countervailing trends of, on the one hand, a sensed need to get things under control and take our life back and, on the other, a sensed helplessness and impotence in the face of what is being perceived as an invisible agent of death. Framed this way, we appear to be living in little more than a Darwinian dystopia of the survival of the fittest, with “Nature, red in tooth and claw” (as Lord Tennyson so powerfully penned), at our doorstep and coughing down our neck. Only this time, we can’t see the agents — can’t hear them stalking us, can’t smell, touch, or in any way sense their presence. Indeed, not even the tools of science can assuage our doubts and provide succor. Some have even dubbed this “Schrödinger’s Virus” due to the fact that we must act as though we have the virus (so as not to spread it) and as though we do not have it (and are not immune to possibly getting infected by it), at the same time. This is the dominant narrative we tell ourselves, through news outlets, social media, and often the voice in the mirror.Read more
