Wholistic Gaia science is not only a foundational world view for the investigation of "the details of how all organisms exchange gases and other chemical compounds with the water, atmosphere and soils of Earth." But, from a cultural standpoint, what I am seeing is that Gaia is also a foundation for a planetary religion, a benevolent new way of living with and revering the Earth. Gaia shows us the way to create evolutionary new habitats so that we have not only the scientific technology, but the philosophy to peacefully penetrate deeper into the mysteries of the Universe using both science and art.
Editor's Note from Diane Renz: "Compassion is in our DNA", just waiting for our Attention. With repeated focal attention you can change the structure and function of your brain, for better, or for worse, dependent upon where you place your attention. It takes intention and commitment to Turn a Mind away from the unconscious onslaught of our day to day societal spin of separation and negativity and toward the cultivation of what is whole and well existing inside us. Here, a beautiful practice shared by Jim Doty of CCARE is to help you find support for this focus of attention. Let your Mind find a prop for to rest its incessant running around, the prop here are prayer beads, with a mnemonic C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K and L standing for Compassion, Dignity, Equanimity, Forgiveness, Gratitude, Humility, Integrity, Justice, Kindness and Love and the last Golden One...the Golden Rule---treat others as you wish to be treated, or even better, treat others as if they were you, because their happiness is intrinsically linked to your own, there truly is no separation.

Editor's Note from Sandra Miniere: Oprah Winfrey shares how she worked the process of surrender while she was in high stress and waiting to hear about a movie role in The Color Purple. When she realized that she had done all she could do, she turned it over to a Higher Power. She reached an inner state of empowerment, peace and flow. Her description of the letting go process is moving and inspirational. It reminds us about the extraordinary power of surrender, one outcome at a time. Enjoy!
Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: Meditation gives so many people hope that they can help change the world just by bringing peace to themselves. And, just like Gandhi's famous quote... it works. However, it is sometimes nice to simply hear positive news especially as we are so often given the bad and bleak. Take time to listen to rock star/crusader, Bono. Breath in his hope and passion.
