Bernie Sanders has been a sane, uncorrupted voice in politics for over 4 decades. He speaks truth to power – clearly, forcefully and without apology. Is he electable? Who knows but in any case he is getting his message out loud and clear by running. Let’s support him and his message. After all, the alternatives are a Bush or Clinton.

Spiritual Unions: Romance During the Transformation & Beyond
An open discussion with author and Oasis owner Robert Roskind
Four decades of my spiritual search has brought me to some conclusions of what might be involved in a partner/coworker/lover/friend relationship. Mostly, it would include both people committed staying awake and assisting in each other in their assigned tasks – individually and jointly – to assist others to awaken and stay awake so that we can most effectively help birth this new age of Love and Spirituality which is rising as the old paradigm of fear recedes.
Also, chemistry, a relaxed rapport and compatible lifestyles, are important. Romantic chemistry, as long as it is one factor but not the only one, adds an essential excitement and spark. A relaxed rapport allows for essential communication and being sounding boards for each other to reason together towards unconditional love for all. Compatible lifestyles (not particularly similar) makes the logistics for a peaceful life together. Any thoughts you might have on this subject will be welcome in an open discussion.

GRACE! LIVE! FREE!
GRACE (Antwerp, Belgium) is coming back to the States, with new songs about love, about life, about personal transformation and global change. Let’s make the world a better place and let’s start right here, right now!
GRACE studied Applied Economics and Barbara Brennan Healing School but also Jazz. She performed for awhile with the Belgian scene, bringing a variety of standards. It took her 20 years and lots of life experience to take the decision to make her own album and write songs about transformation, world change, love revolution… Her old musicians joined her in the studio and in December 2012 her first album ‘ Heart Matters ‘ was born… In the mean time she is working on her second album…
‘It is my belief and experience that more then ever we all long for connection, connection with ourselves, with our essence, with each other, with nature, with the world of today. The world is at a turning point, asking for structural changes on many levels, asking for a new global balance, a new world order. We are all one and everything is interconnected; every change on a micro level, will influence the collective consciousness. World peace goes hand in hand with positive changes within individuals. Everyone will get personally involved in this evolution. Personal growth is the necessary process to ‘come home’. It’s about the widening of the consciousness, the connection with the soul, the experience of the essence of life. My songs are about life, about love, about the world that is ready for essence, for a higher frequency, for enlightenment, for a love revolution.’
