    Excellent video Bill.

    I wonder how many members 250,000 groups have? The key is getting everyone on the same page and a common goal between everyone. The collective consciousness of say 2 billion people brought together by 250,000 groups have alot of power. If they all got together and actually worked together and not spent all their time fighting with other groups they could stop the world completely and actually get something done.

    These are our demands... they must and will be fulfilled by all ruling groups around the world.

    A short example: How long would grocery stores sell imported genetically modified food if there were nobody buying the fruits and vegies? If people in the world community demanded locally grown natural food and only bought locally grown natural food... they would sell locally grown natural food. There is always strength in numbers... TPTB know this and this is why they keep us divided, arguing and bickering between ourselves and far away from the issues that are really going on.

    change is here now with us blazzing the trail with new ideas of what's important, truth, equality, harmony, a group awareness. together we go where others were afraid to go, into our world not controlled by lies, or government, or religion, or money, or ego, just simple truth. it feels good to be united in purpose for a better world... great video.. thanks so much Bill.... upward we go...

    Hate to sound negative, but can someone explain how this presentation is really any different than all the other new age/socialist utopia/Birkenstock/patchouli oil rallies of the last forty years?

    Full respect to Bill and everyone else, but wasn't feeling it-- mondo generalities and "feel-good" fuzzies like all the rest of them. No?

    look at it this way...if you had had a family member
    who you knew was 100% innocent thrown in jail
    and then found that there was a group of people
    willing to back you up in your fight against such an injustice

    wouldn't you be glad that such a group existed?
    I sure would.
    and all the people cheering in that hall
    probably had first hand experience
    and needed to get energized by the fact that they were
    and never had been
    alone.

    there comes a time when even a loner wants to join a group,
    just as there are times when groups are dispersed
    and people find themselves without company

    life is rhythmic
    you choose your own rhythm
    FREE ENERGY NOW, OR IT WILL BREAK LOOSE ALL BY ITSELF!!!

    Dear Friends:

    Every Avalon member must watch this video. It was brought to my attention this morning by the beautiful Ninja Nun.

    It astonished me, and brought tears to my eyes. It is of the utmost importance. Spread it far and wide.

    This is truly what we are doing at Project Avalon. We are at the very heart of this. A New Civilization, a new way of being on Planet Earth, is being born.[INDENT][INDENT][INDENT][INDENT]
    Blessed Unrest, by Paul Hawken

    How the Largest Movement in the World Came into Being
    and Why No One Saw It Coming
    These organisations come and go. They have been around for a long time. They are probably larger in number now than they ever were but they are too small and isolated to have any overall effect on the general well-being of our planet and its people. At best, I rate this sort of thing as another evangelical “self-help” therapy session for a small fee.

    Given that we still have 2 billion people living beneath the most basic needs for human existence and another billion on the poverty line, given that we are still using oil to push around metal boxes and provide the vast majority of our energy needs, given that 10% still own 90% of everything; where is the net effect? You could have a million organisations doing a million things but it won’t make even a dent in the social and material injustice unless those in power decide or change to think of others instead of just themselves.

    Human nature is against us and no amount of preaching love, peace and all those glowing but useless sentiments will ever get us off our knees. Action from those who sustain this mess for their own greedy ends is what is needed; not words from powerless well-meaning people. Unless and until that happens, things will just carry on the same. There is no messiah, no saviour, no ascension, and no rapture.

    Every time I hear the words “we are powerful”, or “we are gods and we’ve just forgotten it” or “we create our own reality”, I feel like saying: are you listening to yourself? How long are we going to remain this powerful and this godly but still fail to change anything? It’s all words; just words that are meant to stir up emotion and soften the senses.

    We all know what we yearn for and people always find different ways of telling us that it’s coming. Sometimes, even they themselves believe in it and that makes the delivery of the message even more effective. It’s what we want to hear and we’ll pay money to hear it. But alas, behind it I find no substance or reality.

    Bollinger,

    i too am weary of rhetoric and new age colliquialisms, but we've gotta start somewhere, my friend. sitting back and waiting for the ptb to have a miraculous change of heart hardly seems the best choice, though i do sense and appreciate your pragmatism here.

    speaking of which...this guy's heart is in the right place, but he does seem a little soft. these alternative organizations need pragmatists as leaders, as#holes with hearts, if you will. people that know other people. people that know how to get sh#t done. people that can deliver demonstrable solutions to match the emotional crescendo of their speeches. in other words, someone that can offer a plan and the resources to carry it out-alright Bollinger, maybe you're right...

    I refer again to the work of Eckhart Tolle.
    Be very clear it is not new age.
    Anyone who has read his books or seen him on DVD or the Oprah Winfrey show would know the integrity of the man.

    The new energy is coming into this world raising consciousness, a rising tide lifts all boats.
    We are all affected by the energy, some do not want it and it cant cope with the goodness in it. They lash out at people who try to help them.
    Other very appreciative.
    Many bother to use thank you buttons.
    Most are ok with opposing points of view.

    Many come to the one thread I started, on enlightenment (Enlightenment: Ego what is it? How to transcend) over 19 thousand in fact.
    The fact that they do read about spiritual matters is a big indication of the way things are going.
    There are differing opinions on the thread quite a few posters quite a few videos on 2012.
    So it is quite diverse and not one cross word, check it out for your selves its in the spiritual section.
    it is the longest running thread in the spiritual section.
    That has nothing to do with me, I did not visit it that number of times laughing.
    It could not have continued with out massive support through the visits contributions Pms etc.
    It was requested that the thread continue from the old Avalon.
    So there is over three years work in it.
    You wanted it you got it.
    The spiritual heart of any forum can only be in the spiritual section.
    If it is weakened by negativity and attack the forum as a whole suffers.

    I see people now being more considerate, for example thanking bus drivers as they get of, the heck out operator no longer just a machine serving you but a real person and acknowledged as such.
    A lot of good out there for those with eyes to see.

    If every one of those 250,000 grassroot organisations were to unite with each other and with Project Avalon, then we would be an unbeatable force. That is what is going to have to happen if we are to become a force to reckon with.
    However, we all need to establish what the common purpose or "common passion" is in order to get there!!! It has to be something that we can ALL agree upon first. And this means every last man, woman and child on this planet.

    Blessed Unrest, by Paul Hawken

    How the Largest Movement in the World Came into Being
    and Why No One Saw It Coming
    [...]
    Please take time to watch this video again. There's a reason why Hawken's presentation feels like a revival gathering. It is. Hawken is the quintessential corporate insider ... now being promoted by the nefarious establishment as one of the head horsemen of its Green Cavalry, a charging brigade of indoctrinated soldiers bent on delivering Agenda 21 and the such, through subtle pressures and carefully measured tactics. An army and an arm of the NWO that wants to put Tesla technology in a half-nelson hold and pursue less establishment-threatening; less efficient; less regular (sunshine on a cloudy day??) but commercially-viable (i.e. taxable) alternative energies like solar energy. Here's some bio on Paul Hawken: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Hawken

    Here's more proof of his establishment credentials.:
    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/marc-g..._b_462413.html

    beginExcerpt
    Why haven't they done better? Some of us have long believed that the problem with conventional SRI funds is that their definition of "socially responsible" is not nearly as rigorous as it could or should be.

    Paul Hawken has been vocal in his critique of the SRI establishment, and since 2005 he has put his money where his mouth is. In a partnership with Baldwin Brothers, a Massachusetts-based investment firm, Hawken has overseen the Highwater Global Fund, a fund for qualified investors (i.e., the rich) that invests in companies "that have a clear sense of current global trends and future societal needs." His results have been impressive, to say the least.

    Since inception in the fall of 2005, Highwater is up by a total of 52.55%. During the three years ended in December (the same period cited above), Highwater is up by a total of 19.75%. This is, in part, because Hawken and the other fund managers are very picky about what stocks they hold. More than 90% of the Fortune 500 fail their screens.

    If you don't know about Paul Hawken, you should. He's a path-breaking thinker and influential writer whose books include The Ecology of Commere (1993), Natural Capitalism (1999, with Amory and Hunter Lovins) and Blessed Unrest (2007). He's an entrepreneur who founded Erewhon and Smith & Hawken, and an advisor who has worked with to Wal-Mart and Ford. These days, he's focused on a startup in stealth mode called OneSun, a a solar energy company based on green chemistry and biomimcry.

    I had the great pleasure of visiting with Hawken last week at his office in Sausalito, CA. Mostly, we talked solar. OneSun's chief science officer is John Warner, a pioneer of green chemistry, a longtime researcher at Polaroid and author (with Paul Anastas, now EPA's top researcher) of Green Chemistry: Theory and Practice. OneSun has hired more than a dozen PhD.'s and aims to produce "solar beneath the cost of nuclear and coal," Hawken says, but he's not ready to divulge much more yet.
    end




    Forget that he was an advisor to Wal-mart and Ford, two of the more egregious establishment corporations; forget that he co-authored Green Chemistry with Paul Anastas (an Environmental Protection Agency muppet) ... listen to what Hawken himself says and measure it against what your own research and intuition tells you.

    One, Hawken guesses that the number of such groups (he lists a few hundred groups maybe, and then uses graphical artistry to mask the supposed others, leaving their existence entirely to our imagination) ... ranges anywhere from one million to two million. Hello? Is this science ... or is this a number pulled out of the ether like a a rabbit from a magician's hat?

    Two, how does Hawken know that this alleged one million (or two) are all with unified purpose, e.g. part of the same movement? The only way this is possible - leave alone the absurdity of the proposition of a million heads thinking as one - is if all such groups had been directed to a unified purpose ... and this implies a central command structure. The obvious candidates for such a command structure are the (Ford/Rockefeller/Rothschild) foundations and institutes. History shows that such foundations/institutes finance the NGOs and such through direct and indirect foundational grants.

    Three, the biggest red flag is Hawken's lack of forthrightness ... Tesla technology is now the barometer of genuine energy reform. You promote it, then you are genuinely of the grass-roots revolution. But if you continue to promote phony energy dreams that go nowhere fast (e.g. wind, solar, water, fossil fuels), then you are part of the existing problem and the old paradigm of power in the pyramidal design.

    Please use discernment. Thank you.

    Humble opinions all around.



    ps: Yes, even nuns can get it wrong from time to time. Bless her heart for trying to find the truth all the same.
