From "The Soul of Money" by Lynne Twist (formerly head of the Hunger Project)
..when people giving money think of themselves as benevolent saviors, people who are deemed "recipients" cannot establish or distinguuish for themselves their worth or their self-reliance. ...Absent the commitment to confront the challenges we face together as a human community, charity doesn't solve problems. It separates us from the problem temporarily and gets us off the hook. Our societies have trained us to give and accept help when, in fact, what is needed is full engagement, collaboration, and partnership.
... Some of the world's greatest, most inspired philanthropists don't have much money... But philanthropy in the United States and around the world is as much a product of hardworking wage earners, everyday kind of people, as it is a practice of the rich and famous. According to the "Giving USA Annual Report on Philanthropy" in the year 2000...Eighty-eight percent came from individuals... and of those people who give 88 percent of the money, 75 percent of them made less than $150,000 a year. (p.158-159).

"Responsibility makes me nervous."
"They insisted that all employees get to work by 8:45 every morning. Couldn't work under those conditions."
"Was met with a string of broken promises and lies, as well as cockroaches."
"I was working for my mom until she decided to move."
"The company made me a scapegoat - just like my three previous employers."
"Please ring after 5 pm, as I am self-employed and I do not want my employer to know I am looking for another job."

"Shankara's Crest Jewel of Discrimination: Timeless Teachings on Nonduality: Viveka Chudamani" translated by Swami Prabhavananda, and Christopher Isherwood.
The Disciple speaks: Master, ...what, in reality, is this bondage? How did it begin? In what is it rooted? How is a man set free from it?....
The Master speaks: You are blessed indeed! You are drawing near to the goal. Through you, your whole family has become purified, because you long to get free from the bondage of ignorance and reach Brahman. ...Children may free their father from his debts, but no other peron can free a man from his bondage; he must do it himself. ...A clear vision of the Reality may be obtained only through our own eyes, when they have been opened by spiritual insight--never through the eyes of some other seer.
...Neither by the practice of Yoga or of Sankhya philosophy, nor by good works, nor by learning, does liberation come; but only through a realization that Atman and Brahman are one--in no other way....Study of the scriptures is fruitless as long as Brahman has not been experienced. And when Brahman has been experienced, it is useless to read the scriptures. ...Therefore the wise must personally exert all their powers to get liberation from the bondage of the world, just as they would personally take remedies against physical ailments. (p.39 - 41) ...If you really desire liberation, hold the objects of sense-enjoyment at a distance, like poison; and keep drinking in with delight such virtues as contentment, compassion, forgiveness, straight-forwardness, tranquillity and self-control, as if they were nectar. (p.44) Vedanta Press: Hollywood CA, 1975.

EFFECTS OF MUSIC ON WATER from Dr. Masaru Emoto's work. ( http://www.masaru-emoto.net/ ) Dr. Masaru Emoto ("The Hidden Message in Water" ) has shown some really fantastic interactions not unlike Tiller's experiments in lattice formation and interactions between mind and other energy around us.
"My efforts to photograph ice crystals and conduct research began to move ahead. Then one day the researcher - who was as caught up in the project as I - said something completely out of the blue: 'Let's see what happens when we expose the water to music.' I knew that it was possible for the vibrations of music to have an effect on the water... At first we had no idea what music we would use and under what conditions we would conduct the experiment. But after considerable trial and error, we reached the conclusion that the best method was probably the simplest - put a bottle of water on a table between two speakers and expose it to a volume at which a person might normally listen to music. We would also need to use the same water that we had used in previous experiments.
We first tried distilled water from a drugstore. The results astounded us. Beethoven's Pastoral Symphony, with its bright and clear tones, resulted in beautiful... crystals... All the classical music that we exposed the water to resulted in well-formed crystals with distinct characteristics. In contrast, the water exposed to violent heavy-metal music resulted in fragmented and malformed crystals at best.
Can words affect water, too?
We next thought about what would happen if we wrote words or phrases like 'Thank you' and 'Fool' on pieces of paper, and wrapped the paper around the bottles of water with the words facing in. It didn't seem logical for water to 'read' the writing, understand the meaning, and change its form accordingly. But I knew from the experiment with music that strange things could happen. We felt as if we were explorers setting out on a journey through an unmapped jungle. The results of the experiments didn't disappoint us. Water exposed to 'Thank you' formed beautiful hexagonal crystals, but water exposed to the word 'Fool' produced crystals similar to the water exposed to heavy-metal music, malformed and fragmented." (4)
How connected is life and what amount of soul or 'chhi' is in all things? Could the ancients and even more materialistic man of the present use these energies to find water or minerals?
Now good buddy try writing "Heal me!" on a piece of paper and wrap it around your bottled water. [what do you have to lose?]

Wisdom in 13?
Every 13 days, a trecena, of the Mayan calendar, if you elect to subscribe, you will see a newsletter in your mailbox. The Mayan calendar, the Tzolkin, according to various interpretations, is based upon the beginning of the universe and the solar system's relationship to the Milky Way Galaxy which in turn is spiraling around a "central sun" with which we are soon to align. This 13 day cycle will align you with the Mayan calendar, creating a link to the great event of 2012 when many cycles come to an end, and we take a big leap up the spiral. How that will manifest is unclear, but the acceleration of consciousness is happening now as the Tzolkin predicts. We are in for interesting times and adopting the 13, my lucky number, is one way I hope to harmonize with this event.
*Note: The date for this Newsletter is Thurs, October 26th, 2006... orΚΚ5 Eb 5 Sak in the Mayan Long Count. According to the text by Ariel Spilsbury and Michael Bryner, "The Mayan Oracle" the EB star glyph means "Abundance, harvest, chalice, emptiness, open vessel, quickening." ( p.220)
Aloha from Ruth.
