Rocky AndersonMitchell’s guest tonight is the Justice Party’s Presidential candidate, former two-term Mayor of Salt Lake City, Rocky Anderson,

We are all aware of the searing disparity between what the original foundation of our country was, as intended and written up by the Founding Fathers in the Bill of Rights and Constitution and what we have as our Body Politic of today, spewing with examples of the very opposite of freedom and liberty, unconstitutional laws dominating our society, and anything but a government for and by the People.

According to Rocky, “the highest calling of a lawyer” is to make certain that the law is fairly and equally applied to all People, not a two-tiered legal system, one for the wealthy, and another for ‘everyone else’. Rocky worked with many of the leading lawyers in Salt Lake City.

During his legal career, Rocky, who is listed in Best Lawyers in America, handled many complex commercial cases, including antitrust and securities matters for plaintiffs who had suffered harm.

In the 1980s Rocky was instrumental in obtaining payments for thousands of depositors who had lost their life savings in Utah’s failed thrifts.

Rocky has always been committed to the principle that justice – social justice, environmental justice, and economic justice – must be an essential aim of public policy. His heartfelt commitment to social justice is reflected in many of the numerous articles and columns he has authored for local publications.

During his two terms as Mayor, Rocky was the Chief Executive Officer of Salt Lake City Corp., overseeing a general fund annual budget of over $200 million and almost 3,000 employees.  He also was the Chief Administrative Officer over the massive Salt Lake City Redevelopment Agency and was Chief Administrative Officer of the Salt Lake City International Airport.  He negotiated with three public employee unions.  Salt Lake City being the only city in Utah that engaged in collective bargaining, which was whole-heartedly supported by Mayor Anderson.

After serving two terms as Mayor, Rocky declined to run for a third term and, instead, devoted himself to educating, motivating, and mobilizing people to take action to stop human rights abuses. Anderson recognizes the importance of people at the grassroots level advocating and pushing for change. He has stated, “We keep expecting elected officials will do the right thing, and the fact is they never do unless they’re pushed.”  But while he was serving, he was considered by many to be the “greenest mayor” in the U.S.

Rocky founded High Road for Human Rights, a non-profit organization devoted to achieving major reform of US human rights policies and practices through unique, coordinated, and sustained grassroots activism, complementing the work of other human rights organizations.

High Road for Human Rights primarily addressed five issues: torture and the undermining of the rule of law, genocide, slavery, the death penalty, and the human rights implications of the climate crisis. For his work on human rights matters during his tenure as Executive Director of High Road for Human Rights, Rocky received the Morehouse University Gandhi, King, Ikeda Award and the Bill of Rights Defense Committee’s Patriot Award.

Tune into this show to hear a dynamic dialogue about how to get this country off the track it’s on and onto one which will serve and empower its People as it should be doing all along.

We could not get this show edited in time to broadcast before the Presidential Elections but are airing it now in early preparation and education for the next election cycle.

marianne williamsonMitchell’s guest tonight on Radio is the internationally acclaimed spiritual author and lecturer Marianne Williamson.

Six of her ten published books have been New York Times Best Sellers. Four of these have been #1 New York Times Best Sellers. A Return to Love is considered a must-read of The New Spirituality. A paragraph from that book, beginning “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure...” is considered an anthem for a contemporary generation of seekers.

Marianne’s other books include The Age of Miracles, Everyday Grace, A Woman’s Worth, Illuminata, Healing the Soul of America, A Course in Weight Loss, and The Gift of Change.

Her newest book, THE LAW OF DIVINE COMPENSATION: On Work, Money and Miracles, was published in November 2012 by Harper Collins.

She has been a popular guest on television programs such as Oprah, Larry King Live, Good Morning America and Charlie Rose.

Marianne is a native of Houston, Texas. In 1989, she founded Project Angel Food, a meals-on-wheels program that serves homebound people with AIDS in the Los Angeles area. Today, Project Angel Food serves over 1,000 people daily. Marianne also founded the Department of Peace Campaign, a grass roots campaign to establish a United States Department of Peace.

In December 2006, a NEWSWEEK magazine poll named Marianne Williamson one of the fifty most influential baby boomers. According to Time magazine, “Yoga, the Cabala and Marianne Williamson have been taken up by those seeking a relationship with God that is not strictly tethered to Christianity.”

Tune in on-line or by phone (see above) to hear Mitchell and Marianne have a dynamic dialogue about her most recent book The Law of Divine Compensation.

When Even One small Thing Changes, Everything Changes

fractalYes, it’s an interesting phenomenon. When I feel more love, there’s more love in ‘my’ field. I have to put ‘my’ in semi-quotes, because the field isn’t exactly mine.  It’s really ‘the field’. It would be sort of like claiming ownership of the air,  (Perhaps surprising that that hasn’t actually happened yet as everything else, even the water, has been put up for sale…but wasn’t it Toulouse-LaTrec who bottled air in France?) 

But getting back to love, the field in and around me then affects those in and around others, and a shift in any direction is also simultaneously a fractal shift in the energy of, in and around the planet, but actually even the Universe. What happens anywhere, affects everything everywhere.  It may not be visible or considerable, but due to the principle underlying Quantum Physics’ Butterfly Effect, this is alive and true.

KaleidoscopeDo you know when you move the cylinder of a kaleidoscope even a small ‘nth’, everything changes?  So it is with us and the Universe every moment.  It may seem that way, because we ourselves are part of the kaleidoscopic shift, we’re ‘in’ it as well as influencing it.  We’re part of the sea we’re swimming in so it’s hard to discern when you’re part of the Gestalt, but indeed, we are there, and affecting it and part of it all the time.  So ‘what we are’ is becoming the Universe around and about us.

Le Petit PrinceSo what I feel, think, how I move and act, is in constant motion and dialogue with the out field or ‘outer field’, just a continuation of what I conveniently refer to as the in field or “inner field’, just as in baseball.  This is actually why what we think-feel-do-be is so vitally important to the whole. And why, each of us, is so vital to the whole.  And why it’s so important to be conscious of what it is we’re experiencing as both a passive and active ‘activity’.  When we’re unconscious, God knows what we’re emitting-influencing-suggesting to ourselves-Other moment-to-moment.  It could be a stream of toxins, of negative emotions, of doubt, cynicism, paranoia, pessimism, etc.

If we’re conscious, we can intend to be “A Body of Love”, or “A Being of Hope”.  Or an “Expression of Joy, Laughter and Light”.  We can inspire people in an otherwise somewhat downtrodden field because so many people tend toward being unconscious and not, as Richard Bandler used to say, and named his book accordingly “using your brain for a change!”

Lao TzeWhy is any of this important?  Well!  We think of ourselves so often as powerless in a world of the powerful, the 1%, and who are we to stand up against this massive force?  The answer is that we are as powerful and more so, but don’t know it.  We may not have the economic and political power that vast wealth (currently) wields, but through the “field phenomenon” we can influence something of the way those with steering influence think and feel based on how we influence the field. 

On that level, “we is all equal!”  This is where mind power comes in, brain power and heart power, cultivating chi, comes into play.  He or she who engages in this game is the more powerful in the true sense, and will also probably live the longest, happiest and healthiest life, having nothing to do with money or anything else.

The ironies are palpable!  Indeed, we are sitting on a throne of power but squander it by not recognizing it.  We have the power to influence outcomes all the time and when we’re intending for the Good of All, we’ll get an extra boost from the Universe.


Presidential Candidate Rocky Anderson & Acclaimed Author Marianne Williamson
on A Better World Media this Week

ROCKY AndersonMany of you regular radio listeners have heard my interviews with Rocky Anderson over the course of this past election year, and also you may have heard The Enlightened Politics Roundtable with Rep. Dennis Kucinich, Ralph Nader along with Rocky Anderson and Barbara Marx Hubbard (who declared her love and admiration for Rocky!).  Rocky participated in the National 3rd Party Debates, hosted first by Larry King, then a second round by Ralph Nader.  Rocky wants to re-engage the rule of law so that law can be respected and implemented as it is intended to be, for government to serve the People.  Bizarre but true!  This will be your first opportunity to see Rocky on A Better World TV, shot when he was briefly in NY this past fall.

marianne williamsonwilliamson bookInterestingly, our guest on Radio this week, Marianne Williamson, wrote a book called Healing the Soul of America, which, among other things, looks at where we lost the spirit of democracy, the commitment to freedom and the essence of what the Founding Fathers had intended for us, as evidenced by the profound founding texts of our nation.  This kind of synchronicity seems to be a matter of routine at A Better World!
Please tune into both this week and enjoy the practical wisdom spoken by both of my guests. I am pleased and honored to have them both on this week, both contributing to the further creation of A Better World.
