gilley jeremyMonday, July 13, 7pm EDT:  Mitchell’s guest this evening is filmmaker Jeremy Gilley, of the Film Peace One Day. 
Being aired a second time.

Jeremy Gilley is the Founder of Peace One Day, a charity campaigning for a global day of ceasefire and non-violence. In 1994, following a decade of professional acting, Mr. Gilley started his own film making company: P.U.R.E. Productions. Four years later, he began to make the Peace One Day documentary, which eventually led to the decision to campaign for a UN resolution formalizing the idea of a global day of peace. This goal was reached in 2001 when a UN General Assembly resolution establishing an ‘International Day of Peace’, put forward by the UK and Costa Rican governments, was unanimously adopted.

Since then, the day has provided an opportunity for life-saving activities and action by individuals worldwide. It has been used by UN agencies and humanitarian organizations to disseminate aid on the ground, and has served as a focal point for peace initiatives. In 2012, Peace One Day is calling for the largest global reduction of violence ever recorded on one day through its Global Truce campaign.

This interview was held in NYC at the time of the world premiere of Jeremy’s film, screened at the Ziegfeld Theater.

Institute of Noetic Sciences Round Table with Barbara Marx Hubbard & IONS President Cassandra Vieten

Check Out Lifestyle Podcasts at Blog Talk Radio with
A Better World Radio on BlogTalkRadio
Please note that due to a last-minute change, Edgar
Mitchell was not able to make the Round Table.

Ed_Mitchell_Apollo_14Wednesday, June 24, 6pm EDT: This week’s radio show is a Round Table about the Institute for Noetic Sciences (IONS) and the upcoming Conference in Chicago, July 22-26.  Joining Mitchell in the Round Table are IONS Founder, astronaut Edgar Mitchell, IONS current President Cassandra Vieten and the internationally-renowned visionary evolutionist Barbara Marx Hubbard.

IONS is an outstanding organization with a global reach, educating people about the relationship between science and spirituality, a favorite subject here at A Better World.  Through Conferences, publications and more, IONS is helping to upgrade our understanding of phenomena which have been passed on by conventional science, such as parapsychology, yet the implications of this kind of human potential opens up vistas paralleled, well, as Edgar Mitchell suggested when he was in space, by the beauty and mystery of Earth from the point of view of the Moon.  IONS work in this sphere is helping humanity come to a new understanding about itself and “who” we really are.large_barbara_marx_hubbard

The annual Conference, in Oak Brook, just outside Chicago, is a venue for this kind of dialogue and many similar ones, so certainly worth looking into and attending.  Go to: www.noetic.org.  Marianne Williamson, Barbara Marx Hubbard, Edgar Mitchell, Dean Radin, Cassie Vieten are among a stellar group of speakers at the Conference.  I will be there as well representing the NY chapter of IONS, known as FIONS.  Please join us for this special Conference.  Edgar Mitchell was a guest on A Better World TV back in in 1996 and Barbara in 2010, as well as numerous times over the years on A Better World Radio.cassiheadshotb

de pape baptistWednesday, April 29, 6pm EDT:  Mitchell’s guest this evening is internationally-known lawyer become author and filmmaker, Baptist de Pape.

Baptist de Pape, a young lawyer, was mired in anxiety and fears about his future when he felt the call to investigate the incredible power of the heart and how it can lead us to our true purpose in life. On a quest that took him around the world, de Pape interviewed eighteen living icons—all on cameraincluding Isabel Allende, Jane Goodall, Marci Shimoff, Marianne Williamson, and Gary Zukav. Generously sharing their touching personal stories as well as profound guidance, these leaders cocreated with de Pape a multidimensional, illuminating portrait of the heart as an inexhaustible source of love and wisdom that far surpasses that of the mind.ilibagiza imaculee

Looking at Vaccines with New Eyes Again

onas-Salk_Polio-Vaccine_HD_768x432-16x9In reality, it’s an old story.  There have been questions about the efficacy of vaccines from the beginning when Dr. Jonas Salk first stepped forward with the polio vaccine.  Many physicians and research scientists have expressed serious concern about what has been called “junk science”, science that is skewed and manipulated to yield a certain result not for medical benefit but  for monetary gain.  Dr. Gary Null has been on the forefront for decades, blowing the whistle on corporatized/Big Pharma science and has brought the most distinguished, prestigious scientists to weigh in on the actual science in contradistinction to the commercialized science.  Additionally, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. has been outspoken for years as well about the dangers of the mercury content in vaccines, along with leading scientists across not just the nation but the world. NEW YORK, NY - JUNE 03:  Environmentalist Robert F. Kennedy Jr. visits the Apple Store Soho on June 3, 2011 in New York City.  (Photo by Dimitrios Kambouris/WireImage)

 

gary nullWe owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to Gary Null who, more than anyone I know, has been hammering away at the science here to the extent that any thinking person will have to completely re-think the assumptions they have been making about vaccines, and well, a lot of things!  He has been playing excerpts from talks by Dr. Susanne Humphries, one of the world’s  leading researchers into vaccination, every day for the last week.

Here, he is interviewed by Bill Mahr, being absolutely public about the findings which stands in stark contrast to the words of Big Pharma that has made billions in profits from vaccines alone, and have been legislatively protected from litigation in respect to them, giving them “free reign” to produce and sell without legal consequence.  Click here to see this interview.

Most people don’t have a clue about the manipulations behind the scenes.  Few people know that Congress itself has found the CDC and FDA to be ensconced in unspeakable corruption.  Many have known this old news but are obliged to continue to announced it over and over until more and more people ‘get’ it, as it’s such an unpopular point of view!  One of the top scientists at CDC recently invoked the Whistleblower Protection Act to protect himself when he, Dr. Thompson, decided to ‘come clean’ and tell the truth of the cover-ups inside the CDC going on for years in respect to the harmful effects of vaccines, yet continued to give Big Pharma the green light to produce and sell.

The subject, while never gone, has re-awakened much interest because of the efforts being made to make vaccinations mandatory, and there is a growing, (intelligent) resistance to this occurring.  If you have children, this would be the time to look into this before laws change and you will be legally required to comply.  These days there could be as many as 75 vaccines administered to a child by age six, oftentimes with mercury and other highly toxic substances.  Do you really know what’s in these vaccines?  Have you ever inquired?  Do you think that your doctor knows?  Perhaps it’s time to “look at vaccines with new eyes…”  Make sure to see the film Bought as well, which you can find on-line for free viewing.  If you’re not familiar with the material, it’s an eye-opener.

Monday April 13, 7pm EDT:Mitchell’s guest this evening is world-renowned physician, author and teacher, Dr. Fereydoon Batmanghelidj.  Author of The Bodies Many Cries for Water, Dr. Batmanghelidj, now deceased, created a significant stir with this book in which he claims that, with water alone, a major number of diseases can be effectively healed.  This interview with Mitchell is likely the last video footage we have of this pioneering physician.
 Purchase Mitchell’s interview with Dr. B. on DVD here.

Born in Iran in 1931, Dr. Batman was an internationally-renowned researcher, author and advocate of the natural healing power of water. He attended Fettes College in Scotland and was a graduate of St. Mary’s Hospital Medical School of London University, where he studied under Sir Alexander Fleming, who shared the Nobel Prize for the discovery of penicillin.

Dr. Batmanghelidj practiced medicine in the United Kingdom before returning to Iran where he played a key role in the development of hospitals and medical centers. He also helped establish sport projects for youth in Iran, including The Ice Palace in Tehran, the first ice skating and sports complex in the Middle East.

When the Iranian Revolution broke out in 1979, Dr. Batmanghelidj was placed in the infamous Evin Prison as a political prisoner for two years and seven months. It was there he discovered the healing powers of water. One night, Dr. B. had to treat a fellow prisoner with crippling peptic ulcer pain. With no medications at his disposal, Dr. B. gave him two glasses of water. Within eight minutes, his pain disappeared. He was instructed to drink two glasses of water every three hours and became absolutely pain free for his four remaining months in the prison.

Dr. B. successfully treated 3,000 fellow prisoners suffering from stress-induced peptic ulcer disease with water alone. While in prison he conducted extensive research into the medicinal effects of water in preventing and relieving many painful degenerative diseases. Evin proved an ideal “stress laboratory,” and despite his being offered an earlier release, Dr. B. chose to stay an extra four months in prison to complete his research into the relationship of dehydration and bleeding peptic ulcer disease.

The report of his findings was published as the editorial of the Journal of Clinical Gastroenterology in June 1983. The New York Times Science Watch reported this discovery on June 21, 1983.

On his release from prison in 1982, Dr. Batmanghelidj escaped from Iran and came to America. At the Foundation for the Simple in Medicine he began to research the effect of chronic unintentional dehydration on the human body. His findings were published in the Foundation’s “Journal of Science in Medicine Simplified” in 1991 and 1992. They can be read on the web site www.watercure.com.

Dr. B’s message to the world is, “You are not sick, you are thirsty. Don’t treat thirst with medication.”

Dr. F. Batmanghelidj devoted the last 20 years of his life promoting public awareness of the healing powers of water. He appeared on hundreds of radio and television programs and lectured around the world. He has left a body of valuable works of six books and more than a dozen educational audio and video seminars.

This interview was conducted on location in Santa Barbara, CA. at The Sacred Water Conference in August, 2003, where Mitchell was invited and Dr. B. was the keynote speaker when these two became good friends.

Mitchell’s guest this evening is internationally-known lawyer become author and filmmaker, Baptist de Pape.

Baptist de Pape, a young lawyer, was mired in anxiety and fears about his future when he felt the call to investigate the incredible power of the heart and how it can lead us to our true purpose in life. On a quest that took him around the world, de Pape interviewed eighteen living icons—all on cameraincluding Isabel Allende, Jane Goodall, Marci Shimoff, Marianne Williamson, and Gary Zukav. Generously sharing their touching personal stories as well as profound guidance, these leaders cocreated with de Pape a multidimensional, illuminating portrait of the heart as an inexhaustible source of love and wisdom that far surpasses that of the mind.ilibagiza imaculee

With its unprecedented convocation of eighteen of the world’s greatest spiritual thinkers, writers, and scientists, including Maya Angelou, Deepak Chopra, Paulo Coelho, and Eckhart Tolle, this beautifully designed full-color spiritual guide—which ties into a film of the same name—reveals how you can overcome limitations and fulfill your highest potential.

Rosh Hashanah of the Year 5774

5744 Jewish calendarHere we are again, celebrating the Hebrew, lunar calendar.  Some Jews celebrate, some Gentiles do too, and many of each do not.  I seek to celebrate on every occasion I can no matter what the occasion, religious or otherwise, because life is so full of ‘everything else’, I want to take every opportunity to honor and thank it, L’Chaim, for the grace and opportunity of living it.

One could ask “what have we learned in 5,744 years?”  Have we learned to love more, feel more compassion for the difficult plight of others?  Or have Jews in Israel learned just to fight better and to belittle and harass their Palestinian neighbors?  Honestly, I see the issue as governmentally-based, not people based.  What I know of people on the ground, they get along with each other, no matter what the differences in background.  Sometimes they inter-marry, sometimes they do business together–they’re all, we’re all, just people.  No one is better than another, and everyone deserves land.  Governments cause wars, rarely do people themselves rise up against their neighbors.

I will be simple-minded.  Stop fighting.  Stop seeking revenge for those who you say the other killed in the past.  Start fresh.  Provide what each side needs according to their meme (think Spiraldynamics) as Don Beck was doing when in Israel.  What’s happened in the past is awful. No one wants to remember all the bloodshed.  Let’s remember how awful we humans can be, indeed, as we make real efforts to re-train ourselves, re-program ourselves for forgiveness and understanding.

So many Jews, so many Israelis, are opposed to the government’s stand against the Palestinians, and so few people know that water is so scarce in Gaza that the kids and anyone, hardly have any at all, except for expensive bottled water.  When people have almost no food, little water, barely any livelihood and little opportunity for autonomy and a sense of dignity, they lash out with whatever weapon they have, be it missiles or rocks.  It’s not good, it is not by any means to be condoned, but one wants to understand the psychological and physical context in which so much of the violence perpetuated by the Palestinians originates.

I wish all people in the region, and everywhere, a good and healthy, peaceful New Year.

On an altogether different note, I’ll note that much good is happening already using both calendars, even the Chinese, at least locally.  The other night for instance, A Better World sponsored Michael Tellinger in NYC, who gave a mesmerizing, 3-hour talk and presentation at the MetaCenter, presenting information on the use of sound for healing as well as for powering equipment.  He made a case for the origins of human life, essentially bred as a slave species for the Annunaki, a special breed of deity, a very interesting idea that’s been in circulation for many decades and popularized in the last few by the Biblical and Sumerian scholar Zechariah Sitchin.  Make sure you’re on our mailing list to prepare for next year’s presentation, which will be deeper and more extensive even than this one.

 Rabbi Schomo CarlebachAnd my good friend Mark Becker invited me to join him and the michpucha to see the off-Broadway show, Soul Doctor, the night before Rosh Hashana, all about the life of Rabbi Schlomo Carlebach.  It was a stunning story and show, and I’d highly recommend that you go to see it.  We laughed, we cried, we were moved deeply. (http://souldoctorbroadway.com).

And we have the opportunity to make this year one of peace.  How?  Continue to speak up to your Congress members and Senators, that you vehemently do not want intervention in Syria, that you want a true, negotiated peace with Iran and Israel, and complete withdrawal from Afghanistan and Iraq.  Further, that we speak peace among ourselves and that peace be the conversation in Washington, not “who wants to attack us?”, which is almost an invitation.

I think many people at this point see the senselessness of war, even those who may have considered it a very viable option just a few short years ago.  So many Americans soldiers have been killed or wounded in Afghanistan and Iraq, so many innocent people in their own countries killed or wounded, so much devastation on every level has occurred and is in the public consciousness.  The insanity of war is beginning to really show itself, not to we peace-makers, but to the otherwise, “go to war” types our country is overwhelmed with.

The White House is not easily mustering up its usual suspects for going to war in Syria, much, I am sure, to the chagrin of the military-industrial complex.  The memory of the falsely-based premise for war with Iraq is still lingering in the public psyche and this now with Syria is just “a little too similar”.  The “sale” is just not working well.

The idea of spending billions on war when our own children don’t have enough food to eat, when millions have lost their homes due to foreclosures, millions are unemployed, our school system is collapsing as is our national infrastructure, is just not ‘sitting well” with your rank-and-file American.  The “terrorism sale” is losing its shine.  Not to mention, I don’t think Americans are happy at all with the NSA and Post Office’s antics of invading our emails and phone calls for any reason, that is, without probable cause and a Judge’s issue of a warrant, per the terms of that famous old, but rarely consulted document known as the U.S. Constitution.  So where getting somewhere as a nation, slowly, not quickly, after way too much bloodshed, after way too much waste of resources, after way too much aggressive destruction of ancient civilizations, but some movement is taking place, thankfully.

For full transformation to occur, we can begin with changing the language we use from war-lingo to peace-lingo, the conversation about what’s possible, change the energy around the subject of peace, change the mind, which changes the action.  Not complicated, well known, just too infrequently executed. Let’s change the frequency.

Robert Muller on TV & Revolutionary Agreements with Marian Head on Radio, Honoring Debbie Ford: A Better World Newsletter 3-3-2013‏

Robert Muller This evening’s guest is a gentleman in his own class. Robert Muller (March 11, 1923 – September 20, 2010), founder of Better World Schools and much else, was an international civil servant with the United Nations. Assistant Secretary-General for 40 years.

Muller’s ideas about world government, peace and spirituality led to the increased representation of religions at the UN, He was known by some as “the philosopher of the U.N.

Born in Belgium, Robert Muller grew up in the Alsace-Lorraine region in France as a French citizen. Alsace-Lorraine borders Germany. As a child his home was on the border. The border issues he saw as a child had a significant impact on his life, his decision to work at the United Nations and his co-founding of the University for Peace in Costa Rica. During his youth Robert experienced constant political and cultural turmoil. He knew the horrors of World War II, of being a refugee, of the Nazi occupation in France, imprisonment and escape from prison.

During the war he was a member of the French Resistance where towards the end of the war he unsuccessfully tried to prevent the slaughter a group of captured German soldiers. This was a major life event that led to work for peace. After the war he returned home and earned a Doctorate of Law from the University of Strasbourg. In 1948 he entered and won an essay contest on how to govern the world, the prize of which was an internship at the newly created United Nations.

Dr. Muller began working at the U.N. just as it was forming. He devoted the next 40 years of his life behind the scenes there, focusing his energies on nurturing a better world, including working for the environment, economics and peace.

He was instrumental in the conception of many multilateral bodies, including the UN Development Program, the World Food Program, the UN Population Fund, and the World Youth Assembly. He rose through the ranks at the UN to the official position of Assistant-Secretary-General and served under three Secretary Generals.

Robert created a “World Core Curriculum” that earned him the UNESCO Prize for Peace Education in 1989. The “World Core Curriculum” helped inspire the growing Global Education movement. More than 30 Robert Muller schools were founded throughout the world.

Robert Muller and Rodrigo Carazo Odio founded the University for Peace in demilitarized Costa Rica around the time Robert retired from the United Nations. Dr. Muller began his active retirement as the first Chancellor of the University for Peace.

He is the recipient of multiple awards and honors including the Albert Schweitzer International Prize for the Humanities and the Eleanor Roosevelt Man of Vision Award.

In addition to his duties at the University for Peace, he devoted time to his writings and was an internationally acclaimed, multilingual speaker and author of fourteen books published in various languages. One of his major writings came from writing one idea-dream each day for nurturing a better world. His goal was to have written 2000 ideas and dreams by the beginning of the new millennium. He achieved this and went on to write over 7000 ideas and dreams. In his speeches he spoke of these idea-dreams and over the years noted that many of these ideas were being worked on and some had been completed.

At the prompting of many of his friends, admirers and non-governmental organizations Robert Muller was a candidate as a global citizen in 1996 for the post of Secretary General of the United Nations. He was also nominated multiple times for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Mitchell and Robert first met in Costa Rica at his home nearby the University of Peace in 1999 when Mitchell was there as a member of the Advisory Board of Radio for Peace International.

At that time, they began to get friendly which led to many visits at Robert’s home in Santa Barbara with his lovely wife Barbara, and at Mitchell’s home in NYC, not far from the U.N.

Mitchell interviewed Robert on A Better World on his 82nd birthday. They shared a vision of A Better World to which both have dedicated their lives in their and respective and very related ways.

We’re re-airing this show in March to honor Robert’s birthday.

Due to renovations at the TV station, the order of shows got a bit shuffled, so this interview with Robert was not aired last week–Alfred L. Webre was–but this week, Robert it is.  If you haven’t seen it, do tune in to see this interview with one of the founders of the United Nations, a revered man.

marian headMitchell’s guest this evening is Marian Head, award-winning author Revolutionary Agreements and social entrepreneur.

Her diverse experiences as organizer, facilitator, entrepreneur and leader include serving on the US Senate staff for nine years; initiating and co-chairing the nation’s first graduate school Department of Leadership and Organizational Transformation; serving as Program Coordinator for the historic Soviet-American Citizens’ Summits in Washington DC and Moscow; and co-facilitating the Global Forums of Spiritual and Parliamentary Leaders on Human Survival, in Oxford and Moscow.

The latter provided a forum for leaders such as His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Mother Teresa, Senator Gore and President Gorbachev to work together to resolve issues of human survival.

Marian’s passion for the principles of authentic leadership and compassionate communication have led her to speak before audiences of thousands; to consult with businesses ranging from mom-‘n’-pops to the Fortune 100; and to serve on and chair national and international committees and boards for both profit and nonprofit organizations.

Today Marian’s social entrepreneurship, MyWellnessClub.org, feeds thousands of malnourished children around the world while financially rewarding those who champion their cause. She and her husband, Glenn, run their million$ wellness and leadership development business using their computers and phones from the foothills of the Colorado Rockies in the summer, the wide Florida beaches in the fall, and the tranquil beauty of Kauai in the winter.

Marian and Glenn MeadMarian says the key to her financial freedom and her many successful partnerships is applying the Revolutionary Agreements. The principles behind the Revolutionary Agreements have helped hundreds of thousands of people worldwide – whether dealing with the common challenges of marriage and parenthood, effectively managing high-performance work teams, or contributing to improved community and international relations.

Mitchell has invited Marian to join him today to share, in her engagingly honest and humorous style, how you too can enjoy rewarding partnerships at home and at work by using the Revolutionary Agreements.

In everything she does, Marian spreads the seeds of a new revolution: how to create a positive future for all of humanity, by adopting Agreements with ourselves for living a positive life today.

Has it Always Been This Way?

You know, I love to emphasize the good, the positive, the “wow!”  When we set ourselves in this direction, magic happens and at the end of the day, our health, immune system, hormonal balance, energy-balance, happiness, joy and well-being meter way off the chart.

peopleServingPeopleThere is so much good to contemplate, so much that’s beautiful and brimming with good cheer, good will and love.  When we look at the good actions of service, every day we see people helping each other with simple and complex matters across the planet, feeding the hungry, caring for the infirm, people even risking their lives for each other.

Then there are people who are funding projects that build homes for the homeless, such as Habitat for Humanity, there is The Hunger Project, there is Nobel Prize winning Dr. Mohammed Yunus and the Grameem Bank extending micro-credit, there are groups planting rooftop gardens in the South Bronx to feed local communities– are these all not worth celebrating and dancing about?  You bet they are. And our future is going to be further populated with these kinds of non-random and random acts of compassion,aligned with, informing the new business model, of “doing well by doing good”, or its inverse “do good, do well”.  It’s not really new, no, but it is being revived through any number of different social enterprises, showing up these days even in the leading business schools across the country and no doubt, the world.

people helping peopleA Better World is a strong advocate of such thinking as made evident in numerous radio and TV shows on these subjects, on the application of humanity and eco-thinking in the corporation, these many articles here and in the Huffington Post, and a chapter I wrote in the book, Heart at Work, anthologized by my dear friend and colleague, co-founder of Partnerships for Change, Jackie Miller.

Both guests this week, to continue the theme at A Better World, my interviews with Robert Muller and Marian Head, two people whose lives have been devoted to being in service to “the larger good”, further emphasize our commitment to dignified, humane and eco-sensitive, sustaintainable and integrity-based values.

This is the concrete way in which we are going to, I believe, transform the world.  It’s through humanizing, ecologizing, and spiritualizing, if you will, the economy. It balances wealth, increases it across the board, is not based on hand-outs, but ‘work-outs’, and prohibits the extreme exploitation of any natural resource. Oh they may be accessed and sold, but only within the parameters of fair pay, safe work conditions, and all within green and sustainable standards.  This just isn’t hard.  The main ‘cost’ is not a cost at all, but the reduction or re-distribution of huge profit to the few and the multiplication of bottom lines for all.  How does a CEO’s life change between having 50 million or 150 million?  None.  And when others at the same time are starving yet willing to work or are working but earning slave wages? It gives him more money to utilize wisely for the common good.  And the common good can start in his or her own company.  In fact, there are many and an increasing number of examples of equitable distribution of labor and love in companies across the globe.  We need to make this ‘the norm’ and many social, political, economic, ethical and spiritual problems will just “go away”. In some companies, the CEO and the workers earn the same amount, or the ratio of difference is minimum, not, as too often these days, with an astronomical disparity.

So Much to Celebrate in the Light but So Much Lingers in the Shadow

So while so many good projects and initiatives, in business, in NGO’s, in non-profits, church and temple charities, and on are taking place all over the globe, so too continues a shadowy mob, many of the Fortune 500 crew unfortunately, those who participate in and fund ALEC, control local, state and federal politicians and agencies, and are essentially the “legal Mafia”.  They don’t necessarily wear dark sunglasses, but they call the shotsoften do wear dark suits and march around Wall St.  Certainly these are a very small minority, but they call the shots on so many levels of our economic and political lives that the rest of humanity is severely adversely affected, as is our Earth Herself.

Climate ChangeClimate Change, the destruction of habitats, of species, of large land masses, or air, soil and water, of rainforests providing our required oxygen, all of these life-sustaining elements of our lives have been dealt death-blows by these relatively few groups of hucksters, essentially profoundly pathological, fear-ridden, arrogant, young souls.

They are rich and want to hold all the pawn pieces of themselves by subterfuging every else.  This just ‘ain’t’ the way to play ball. And ultimately, their end game does not work.  But it’s taking some time for that reality to roll out, though it is.

I’ve said so many times that “these guys give making money a bad name!”  Making money is a climate changepowerfully good enterprise in a world the runs on it–if one doesn’t one is probably greatly limiting their flexibility, effectiveness and choices.  But to hoard it and to enslave others for it, changes the whole game, and it’s no longer exciting and fun.  It’s The Shadow!

So I ask, “Has it always been this way?” is a serious question.  I say that it probably has to one extent hit in the heador another and that varies based on the cycle of history and time that we’re in.  Right now, due to eco-damage and human soul damage, we’re at another extreme, and the pendulum is beginning to swing in the other, better direction.  So don’t get hit in the head with it as it swings….and let’s have compassion for those who will be finding themselves hit and faltering based on the changes ahead.  Things may worsen before they improve so don’t be surprised by that either.  In fact, it’s likely, but keeping the faith is our way through.
In Honor of Debbie Ford

Bestselling Author Debbie Ford Dies at 57

Debbie Ford was and is a beautiful woman, a beautiful soul.

I had the pleasure of getting to know her a few years ago, initially when I was asked by Gary Null, who was out of town, if I would interview her in his stead on his daily radio show.  I had been friendly with her wonderful sister Arielle and her husband Brian for some years previously, and now Debbie and I were finally getting a chance to spend some time.  After interviewing her for Gary’s show, we spent some time together, and the next day, she came over to my place to tape a TV show.  We always had in mind doing more, but life had a different idea.  We appreciate her so much at A Better World, honor her and thank her for her life of dedicated service.

Below is an abridged description of her life and work written up by Laurie Sue Brockway:

Debbie Ford, 57, the bestselling author and teacher known for her work in helping people break free of their emotional baggage and fears, died in her home in San Diego, California on Sunday, February 17, 2013.  She was surrounded by friends and family. This marked the end of a long journey with cancer that she first shared with the public in an interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Considered a thought leader for her generation, Ford burst onto the scene with her first book, The Dark Side of the Light Chasers, in 1998, showing the world that even loving and self-aware people have a darker side. She took readers on a journey of identifying, facing, and embracing their shadow selves. Her Shadow Process Workshop became the foundation of her work in nearly two decades to follow. She penned nine best-selling books related to that topic, and was working on her 10th book at the time of her death. Her books are translated into over 20 languages and have sold millions of copies.

Debbie FordHaving overcome a drug addiction, a difficult divorce, a heartbreaking betrayal, and many hard knocks in the University of Life, Ford was never shy about sharing her personal story. In fact she often mused, with a laugh and a roll of her eyes, that a great deal of her wisdom and insight came through her own difficult life experiences.

Debbie’s books are still considered pioneering work in the world of emotional and spiritual education. Her books include:  The Dark Side of the Light Chasers (1998); Spiritual Divorce: Divorce as a Catalyst for an Extraordinary Life (2001) ; The Secret of the Shadow: The Power of Owning Your Story (2002); The Right Questions: Ten Essential Questions To Guide You To An Extraordinary Life (2004) ;The Best Year of Your Life: Dream It, Plan It, Live It (2005); Why Good People Do Bad Things: How to Stop Being Your Own Worst Enemy (2008); The 21-Day Consciousness Cleanse: A Breakthrough Program for Connecting Your Soul’s Deepest Purpose  (2009);  The Shadow Effect: Illuminating the Hidden Power of Your True Self which she wrote with Deepak Chopra and Marianne Williamson (2010); and Courage: Overcoming Fear and Igniting Self-Confidence (2012).

Early in her career, Ford realized that one of her gifts was to bring large groups of people through the transformational process. To facilitate this work, she founded the The Ford Institute for Transformational Training and began to train others in her life-changing Debbie Fordprocesses. She trained thousands of transformational life coaches around the world to utilize her innovative coaching models, tools, techniques and processes to support others in healing their hearts, clarifying their goals, creating lives beyond the limitations of their old beliefs and behaviors, and embracing and integrating their whole selves.

Her quick wit, ability to stand strong in the presence of human pain and suffering, and true belief that we are all encoded with the ability to serve others and love ourselves gained her the admiration and support of the greatest spiritual teachers of our time. She was known for her straight talking, honest approach to helping others heal their own self-hatred and release self-criticisms with forgiveness.

“It’s easy to love yourself when you feel good enough, when you feel special enough, when you’re loved enough, when you have enough money, and you’re appreciated,” she said in a 2010 interview. “But what about loving yourself when you’re crying and you’re in pain, feeling powerless and hopeless; when you feel like a reject and nobody loves you? That is love and that is what shadow work demands from you. We were birthed with one soul to take care of, and we must take care of it.”

In 2008, Debbie founded The Collective Heart, a nonprofit organization with the mission to encourage people to make a difference in the lives of others, especially children. Inspired by Oprah’s commitment to educate girls and at the urging of her friend Vivian Glyck, founder Debbie Ford and son Beauof the Just Like My Child Foundation, Ford and her son Beau committed to building the first “Children’s Academy for the Collective Heart” in rural Uganda. With contributions from around the world, the first school was built, and began educating students in the spring of 2009. Since its inception, the Collective Heart has raised over $350,000, and provided the resources and provisions for six primary schools to be built in two African nations — five schools in Uganda and one in Kenya — that will empower thousands of children over the next 20 years with the lifelong gift of an education. In her latest endeavor, Ford helped inspire her community to raise $100,000 in support of The Girl Power Project, a dynamic year-long leadership training for adolescent girls in Uganda.

Debbie earned her Master’s Degree in Psychology with an emphasis in consciousness studies from JFK University, and in 2001 received the Alumni of the Year Award for her outstanding contribution in the fields of psychology and spirituality. In 2003 she was awarded an honorary Doctorate from Emerson University, and in 2004 she received an honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters from the John F. Kennedy University Board of Regents.

Birth 2012Los Angeles, CA, (December 12, 2012) – The end of the long-count Mayan calendar on December 21, 2012, has provoked apocalyptic fears, doomsday books and films, and even triggered outbreaks of panic, as recently reported in a December 1New York Times article on Russia’s end-of-the-world anxiety. By contrast, the far more positive and forward-looking Birth 2012 movement, organized by The Shift Network, offers a creative and hopeful alternative. Rather than feed fears, the movement aims to turn this marker point into a planetary “birth day” for a new era that is healthy, sustainable, and peaceful. The conveners recognize the power of this once-in-five-thousand-years turning point to unify people globally around a commitment to create a world that works for all.

The Birth 2012 movement in its Three day —33 hour, global live webcast will link more than 40 major locations and hundreds of smaller ones. Many of today’s top cultural leaders, bestselling authors, religious leaders, and musicians will join together in a call for a collective shift to a world that works for all. Livecast locations include Mexico, Egypt, India, Japan, Israel, Ghana, Kenya, Scotland, Guatemala, Brazil, and Canada, plus dozens of locations in the United States at Birth2012.com and features thought leaders such as Deepak Chopra, Marianne Williamson, Barbara Marx Hubbard, Neale Donald Walsch, don Miguel Ruiz, Jack Canfield, John Perkins, Joan Borysenko, and Lisa Nichols; spiritual leaders such as Michael Bernard Beckwith, Ram Dass, Jean Houston, Shiva Rea, Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev, Oscar Miro-Quesada, Mayan elders, and members of the International Council of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers; actors such as Esai Morales; social change leaderssuch as Lynne Twist, Dot Maver, James O’Dea and Daniel Pinchbeck ; journalists such as Lynne McTaggart; academics such as Ervin Laszlo of Global Shift University and Ashok Gangadean of Haverford; business leaders such as Rinaldo Brutoco of World Business Academy; and musicians such as Michael Franti, Ozomatli, Donna DeLory and Rickie Byars Beckwith.

Many of these leaders will participate in a live celebration on December 21and 22 at Agape International Spiritual Center in Culver City, CA, the headquarters of the Birth 2012broadcast, while others will join the celebration from other locations around the world. Millions more will connect via 12 waves of unity that will be staged every two hours leading up to the “birth moment” at noon Pacific on December 22.

“Birth 2012 is a celebration that helps us build a critical mass of people committed to positive change. We aim to mark an historic turning point by connecting the social, spiritual, and technological breakthroughs that can lead us forward out of our current global crises,” shares Stephen Dinan, the co-founder and architect of the Birth 2012 campaign as well as CEO of The Shift Network, which serves 225,000 members with transformational online events, courses, and trainings.
