firestone lillian hdshtMonday, June 15, 7pm EDT:  Mitchell’s guest this evening is one of the senior teachers at New York’s  Gurdjieff Foundation, and author of The Forgotten Language of Children, Lillian Firestone. Lillian is a long-time writer, educator, traveler and student of “The Work”, of Gurdjieff.

Lillian is founder of Firestone Associates, a public relations and marketing firm operating since 1964. She has been profiled in Glamour, Cosmopolitan and Vogue magazines and is the author of more than 100 technical articles.  She serves as Chairman of the Board of Aquasonics International, an emerging high tech company in the field of desalination.  Her academic credentials include visiting professor at Pratt Institute, lecturer at Columbia School of Pharmacy, speaker at the American Management Association.

Purchase Lillian’s Book on the Children’s Work of G.I. Gurdjieff here.

Lillian has twice won the Putnam Publishing prize for literature. She was publisher of ArtSpeak Magazine, and currently heads Indications Press publishing, and is Managing Editor of Asian Food & Lifestyle magazine in New York City.

Born in Harbin, China, Lillian traces her roots in China for three generations  where her father founded a trading company in 1928 though the family’s roots are Russian. She attributes her love of Chinese culture to a childhood spent traveling throughout Asia.

The Work and teachings were and are the pivotal point of Lililan’s spiritual life and development, dedicating most of her adult life to both learning, applying and facilitating groups to help others in the process of cultivating awareness, presence and, as Mr. Gurdjieff termed it, “self-remembering”.  Lillian and Mitchell knew each other socially before his formal engagement in the Work, though this became an integral part of their long-term friendship and relationship.

Vote in House is This Monday, 6-15 for Trans-Pacific Partnership & Fast-Track: STILL Needs Our Calls

TPP-ULTIMATE-POWER-GRAB-BY-CORPS-400x245 (1)Fast-Track was passed in the Senate two weeks ago, but not in the House.  What is Fast-Track?  It’s our Congress handing its obligation to its to negotiate and modify laws that in the interest of their  con-stituents, to the Executive Branch of government.

Just as Fast-Track was first defeated in the first Senate vote just a few weeks ago and we were so greatly relieved that the death knell of a total corporate global takeover was sounding, it was just the next week that, after some campaign funds got spread among the dissenting Senators, it then “magically” passed.  Gary Null on his noon radio show specified “who go what” which turned the vote around.  In short, he proved how corrupt, ‘bought and paid for’ most all of our politicians are, right in front of our very eyes.  There is no shame any longer, so brazen are the tactics and their onerous results.

And so, in the House, this week’s first vote defeated Fast Track also, but the Republicans will put it up to vote again, and probably will until they win or accept defeat, but most likely the former.  We cannot let that happen.  It’s too against the heart and vision, the values and what little integrity of America’s soul remains.tpp secret

In short, this is an abdication of our representative’s solemn vow to represent us.  Fast-Track shouldn’t be an option. But in a corrupt system, sadly it is.  We can still defeat its passage in the House with concerted effort: contacting our Representatives by phone and email, immediately. 

 Let them know you oppose Fast-Track and TPP.  To learn more about both, tune in to these three A Better World radio  interviews I conducted over these past few months with some of the leading experts about TPP and Fast-Track:

Here’s easy access to Congress: https://www.congress.gov/members

Following are a few radio programs on the subject in which I am interviewing experts in the field:

http://abetterworld.tv/trans-pacific-partnership-tpp    http://abetterworld.tv/abw-radio-tpp-fast-track-cop-21-in-paris http://abetterworld.tv/mitchell-rabin-on-our-future-tpp-ethics-spirituality/

Trans-Pacific Partnership, (TPP).Learn more about and review the TPP, a treaty whose greatest cheerleader is nothing short of our President.  The tenets of TPP and the other two trade agreements on the table, virtually completely in secret (why would that be??) threatens,if not stopped, U.S. judicial authority over legislative decision-making and subordinate the entire Dept. of Justice, including the Supreme Court and all hard-won Congressional legislation such as the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, all protections of food, worker safety and on, to a selected international corporate arbitration panel.  Not elected, not known.  A privately hired cabal of international lawyers, accountants and businessmen with one thing in mind: their profit.  At everyone else’s expense. Yes,you heard right. This is the TPP.  

Whatever you may hold as sacred in our way of life in the USA is going to be legally jeopardized.  We don’t want to live in a bubble but to see what’s up and do something about it.  There are two other trade treaties being negotiated right now too.  Idea of magnitude?  Even though the number of issues we face as a nation and as a world are many, if we do not defeat this absurd, inhumane treaty, it will make our challenges to all the other issues close to impossible to legally overcome. tpp info

The TPP alone covers 40% of the world economy.  One of the others involves same with Europe.  Are you getting the seriousness of this?

In regard to Representatives reviewing the chapters of the TPP, they are permitted to read text alone, no staff to discuss points with, no notes can be taken, and then not even the entire TPP text.  What?  Why such peculiarities posed to our own government’s Congress?  Is this a secret proceeding?  What is so secret?  And if Fast-Track passes, there is no debate, only up to 20 hours of discussion but no ability to modify at all.

screen-shot-2012-06-10-at-4-53pjun101Then it goes to an up or down vote, Yay or Nay.  End of a story in our efforts toward sovereignty, civility and democracy. If you want to upgrade the course of history, go to: https://www.congress.gov/members and take action.

Given the fact that we have a rational function in the human mind, that is, it can manage ratios, proportions of information, meaning, data, given that we have a pre-frontal cortex, we are capable of awesome creativity, thinking, feeling and reason.  We are capable of impeccable integrity. Yet, we are staring at a situation in which the future of human lives across the planet are being determined by the tenets in a largely undisclosed, secret document that the “leader of the free world”, President Obama, wants to sign into law without discussion.

If we could all digest the irrational outrageousness, preposterousness of this and its inherent lack of integrity in respect to both its content and legislative process, we would make it a very top priority to not ask, but demand our House of Representatives to defeat Fast-Track and then the TPP and other so-called ‘trade treaties’ in one fell swoop.  They are not about trade–the little we’ve seen suggests that they are about the acquisition of power.
