UNIFY World Peace September 21st, 2013
One week to go until the International Day of Peace. There are 203 inner peace events registered so far and many more to come! Please join everyone on that day and spread this video below to all your networks...
Here is a transcript of this great video's content ...
Today, we are more connected globally than at any other point in human history, but are we really unified? Right now, families in Syria are suffering. Their children are victims of chemical weapons attacks. How can you, one person, make a difference? World peace seems impossible. But is it? It's been proven that groups meditating together lower violence. So imagine what we could do when millions of us meditate together. On September 21st, the International Peace Day, you will have a chance to create a more peaceful world, when you become One, unified with many... Noble dreams have motivated the great movements of our time for equality, human rights and freedom. For that time, a group unified with one purpose, one heartbeat, achieved the impossible. On September 21st 2013, at the exact same moment, countless people all over the world will be joining together in a unified demonstration of inner peace. In hundreds of cities at 12 midnight GMT, we will meditate to embody the peace we wish to see in the world. You can click this video off and do nothing... Or you can choose to unify with us to create a moment of world peace. Here's how. Go to unify.org, scroll to the map and find an event in your area. If there isn't one, click on the 'Create an event' button and organize it yourself. Tell your family, tell your coworkers, your friends, tell everyone you know. When you forward this video by email and Facebook, and text your friends to join you, the movement spreads. It's that easy. The call to unify has begun. So if you believe in this dream that so many of us share, unify with us. Together we are a global synchronized force of nature. Together, we can change the course of history. Together, the story of war ends. Now is the time to unify...One Day... One Moment... One Humanity...
Note: As you'll see at http://unify.org/, the suggested duration of this globally synchronized meditation is one hour, starting at 12 midnight GMT, and you'll find a button to convert this time to your local time or you can also find it through http://bit.ly/16b0Z11

Can Prospect of World War Ignite Global Peace Movement? http://www.huffingtonpost.com/jacob-devaney/can-prospect-of-world-war_b_3895739.html
Martin Luther King Jr. once said, "Those who love peace must learn to organize as effectively as those who love war." Though it is a very small percentage of people pushing for this war in Syria (most of whom stand to benefit financially or politically), they are quite organized in their deception and rationale that killing people who kill people is somehow moral and acceptable. Despite the embarrassing low that Obama and the American political leadership has sunk to, we may thank them for causing peace activists everywhere to organize globally in ways that have never been seen before. As war drums pound, activists are amplifying their message of peace in the run up to The International Day of Peace on September 21. CLIP

BeThePeace: Global Event https://www.facebook.com/events/626710630693830/
On International Day of Peace, September 21st, 2013 we invite you to organize and participate in live gatherings in your city at 12 am, 12 Noon, and 12 Midnight GMT. At these same times, thousands more will connect virtually via audio webcasts and online forums, participating in three deep planetary Pulses of Peace. The final moment, at midnight GMT, is synchronized with UNIFY's Moment of World Peace, The Compassion Games' closing ceremony and EarthDance's Prayer for Peace. BeThePeace welcomes people from every culture, every spiritual tradition, and every political perspective to come together in a profound experience of Global Oneness. The event builds on a thirty-year tradition of a Planetary Peace Wave on September 21 to build a global Culture of Peace. It aims to strengthen an ever-growing global network of 'subtle activists' committed to developing internal peace and creating a foundation for a true global culture of peace.

Minute of Silence - Moment of Peace, at noon on Peace Day (all time zones) https://www.facebook.com/MinuteOfSilenceMomentOfPeace
Minute of Silence - Moment of Peace (a Worldwide Peace Wave) - Individuals, organizations and countries are being asked to observe a Minute of Silence - Moment of Peace on Peace Day, September 21 2013, at 12 noon local time. This simple yet profound and practical action demonstrates that personal and planetary Peace are one. MUCH more on this through http://cultureofpeace.org/idp "In 1981, the United Nations General Assembly, by unanimous vote, adopted Resolution 36/67 establishing the International Day of Peace (IDP) which stated in part, to devote a specific time to concentrate the efforts of the United Nations and its Member States, as well as the whole of mankind, to promoting the ideals of peace and to giving positive evidence of their commitment to peace in all viable ways. The first Peace Day was celebrated in September 1982 on the opening day of the General Assembly. In 2002 the UN General Assembly officially declared September 21 as the permanent annual date for the International Day of Peace. By creating the International Day of Peace, the UN devoted a specific day and collaborative focus on worldwide peace and encouraged all of humanity to work in cooperation for this goal."

Do As One - Use their Universal Breathing Room! http://www.DoAsOne.org/
The Goal: To serve and connect humanity by establishing a legacy of healthy, conscious breathing.
The Vision: One billion people will breathe together synchronously by November 11, 2013.
The Method: To share techniques for daily, optimal breathing and enable global, synchronous breathing through DoAsOne.com.
The Story: Do As One was created by three visionary friends compelled to make the world a happier and healthier place on a grand scale. With that vision at heart, they sought to learn as much as they could about the most basic and life sustaining function of a humans life, breathing. They met with gurus, breath practitioners, respiratory therapists, doctors, yoga instructors, healers, shamans, religious leaders, monks and alternative medicine experts to get at the core of what the breath means to the human body, mind and spirit. They even interviewed thousands of diverse people to gauge what the general population knows about breathing in order to help determine what needed to be shared and how best to impart the knowledge.After synthesizing all the information, the founders set forth a grand goal to have one billion people breathe synchronously. DoAsOne.com is the online embodiment of the vision, goal, and method of Do As One. People have now come from over 140 countries to breathe on DoAsOne.com. Users have commented that the carefully designed breathing tools have improved their quality of life and enabled them to connect with others around the planet in a unique and exciting way.
AND NOW A COMPILATION OF KEYS NEWS AND IMPORTANT VIDEOS FOR YOUR REVIEW...
Syria's weapons to be destroyed by mid-2014 under U.S.-Russia deal (September 14, 2013) http://www.ctvnews.ca/world/syria-s-weapons-to-be-destroyed-by-mid-2014-under-u-s-russia-deal-1.1454712
GENEVA -- A diplomatic breakthrough Saturday on securing and destroying Syria's chemical weapons stockpile averted the threat of U.S. military action for the moment and could swing momentum toward ending a horrific civil war. Marathon negotiations between U.S. and Russian diplomats at a Geneva hotel produced a sweeping agreement that will require one of the most ambitious arms-control efforts in history. The deal involves making an inventory and seizing all components of Syria's chemical weapons program and imposing penalties if President Bashar Assad's government fails to comply will the terms.
(...) The deal offers the potential for reviving international peace talks to end a civil war that has claimed more than 100,000 lives and sent 2 million refugees fleeing for safety, and now threatens the stability of the entire Mideast. Kerry and Lavrov, along with the U.N.-Arab League envoy to Syria, Lakhdar Brahimi, said the chances for a follow-up peace conference in Geneva to the one held in June 2012 would depend largely on the weapons deal. The U.S. and Russia are giving Syria just one week, until Sept. 21, to submit "a comprehensive listing, including names, types and quantities of its chemical weapons agents, types of munitions, and location and form of storage, production, and research and development facilities." International inspectors are to be on the ground in Syria by November. During that month, they are to complete their initial assessment and all mixing and filling equipment for chemical weapons is to be destroyed. They must be given "immediate and unfettered" access to inspect all sites. All components of the chemical weapons program are to be removed from the country or destroyed by mid-2014. CLIP

By December 2015, Saturn in Sagittarius will be moving opposite the US Uranus in Gemini, and square transiting Neptune, as the Grand Cross pattern formed by transiting Uranus and Pluto continues to hold the US Sun-Saturn square in its grip, says renowned author and astrologer Robert Gover, who predicted the 2008 financial meltdown in his book Time and Money: Astrology and the Planets.
This indicates a prolonging of economic troubles and the distinct possibility of a second revolution and/or civil war, says Gover. Since the influence of the US corporatized government now spans the Earth and because news travels so much faster now a second revolution would most likely be worldwide as well as national.
Big combines of corporations and their network of associated wealthy investors and lobbyists now control the US Congress and many other branches of our government, and the governments of other nations around the world, Gover continues. The neo-feudal world they are building is anti-democratic. No semblance of democracy is possible in a world under their control. The purest form of capitalism is slavery. Since mankind is simultaneously moving with considerable momentum toward more and better democracy, the clash will be between these forces. The neo-feudalists may win every battle they control the guys with the guns but their world is unsustainable, economically as well as ecologically.
This is the ongoing drama of the Grand Cardinal Cross.
We are in the transition time between two ages: the Piscean and the Aquarian, the age of faith and the age of spiritual science, the age of the heroic individual and the age of the communitarian individual.
We are in transition from the Industrial Age of Cheap Hydro-Carbons to the Solar Age of Global Warming and Renewable, Sustainable Energy.
The transition will reshape the entire surface of planet Earth, create entirely different yearly seasonal cycles from pole to pole, trigger mass migrations resulting in hundreds of millions of environmental refugees, and require entirely new ways of living if humanity is to survive and thrive in the New Age we are approaching.
Humanity is being tested on an individual and on a collective basis.
On an individual basis we are being asked to participate in an epochal shift of consciousness, from belief in a fixed individual self, which stands opposed to society and the natural environment, and which seeks its own best interests without too much concern for society or the environment, to belief in a fluid, permeable self, which changes according to social context and the rhythms of the natural environment, and which sees its own best interests as co-incidental with the best interests of society and the natural environment.
On a collective basis we are being asked to extend our limited sense of compassion and identity, which historically includes our family, our neighbors, our community, our nation, our economic class, our religion, our sex and our race, to include all of humanity. This is because we are learning that our lifestyles, our politics, and our economic life all have a dramatic impact on peoples in other countries, other climates, other races and religions around the world. We have obligations to the human family that extend beyond the limited circle of people with whom we feel we have common substantial beliefs, blood relations, economic interests and political ideologies.
We are asked to choose between the war of all against all and the unification of the human family on our home planet, Earth.
At this twilight time between the ages, some nations, driven by ego and greed, will choose the path of the war of all against all, the path of resource wars among nations.
Some individuals, seeking to enrich themselves at the expense of others, will pursue personal power and seek to dominate their fellows, to the detriment of their own spiritual development, and to the detriment of their own less successful brothers and sisters around the world.
Others will choose the path of community, the path of voluntary simplicity, mutual nourishment and environmental stewardship.
Even now, in many parts of the world, old souls are gathering in this magical twilight time, preparing to share their wealth, preparing to nourish one another with the accumulated treasures of their talents, preparing to forge the social structures that will become models for post-industrial, post-cheap oil communities.
This path of sharing freely and connecting deeply with one another will open our awareness to the true nature of our interdependence with others and with our environment. This path of mutual service will thus nourish our bodies, minds and souls.
Note from Jean : The risks of a larger conflict in and around Syria now being hopefully permanently averted thanks to the solution that John Kerry 'accidentally' offered during a press conference, there is a much more serious threat to all life on Earth that goes totally unattended, namely the considerable risk of one or more extreme nuclear plant disasters, especially within the United States and downwind from all of us, because of inherent design flaws to the Mark I and Mark II boiling water reactors. Please do take 5 minutes of your time to read the 2 page brochure Freeze Our Fukushimas! initially released on March 2012 by Beyond Nuclear (beyondnuclear.org much more on what they do HERE) and you'll perfectly understand why it is vital that a massive public outcry finally forces the Obama Administration to stop kottowing to the nuclear lobby and DO THE RIGHT THING NOW to save billions of human lives and litterally nearly all life on Earth from the inevitable disaster that will befall this planet if nothing is done NOW to prevent it! whether because of a terrorist act, a technical failure, a human error, or any of a number of other possible things such as a Carrington Event-type geomagnetic storm from a massive solar flare, directly hitting the Earth, that would most likely knock dead the entire US electric grid (and possibly the entire world's electric grid as well) and fry to a crisp all electromagnetically unprotected computer chips, thus preventing the normal cooling with water of these insanely designed nuclear plants because of the immediate or delayed failure of their only back up cooling system and the same risk level goes undoubtedly for all 437 operational nuclear power reactors (according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_power) around the world if such a global geomagnetic storm happens.
The following prescient and dire-but-certainly-not-dire-enough warning from a scientist at the bottom of this *must read* National Geographic Magazine article What If the Biggest Solar Storm on Record Happened Today? clearly spells out what could happen and is more than enough to get everyone to knock the sleepy heads of those in charge at the White House to get them to focus urgently needed attention and action to resolve this...
"Another disaster-in-waiting would be the permanent loss of off-site power to nuclear power plants, which are not designed to function on a long-term basis using electricity produced by back-up on-site generators. Reactors *must* keep their cooling systems (for both the reactor core and spent fuel ponds) in operation, even when the reactor is shut down. Take a look at Fukushima to see what happens when you fail to do so.
Imagine dozens of nuclear power plants all frantically attempting to provide on-site electric power to keep their cooling systems going for months on end. Most reactors store only about 6 days worth of diesel fuel required to run the massive diesel generators that would provide such back-up power. IF the diesel generators were capable of running continuously for months on end (they are not designed or expected to do so), there would still be the matter of trucking fuel to the plants to keep them running.
One step we could immediately take to reduce this danger is to remove older spent fuel rods from cooling ponds and put them into Hardened On-Site Storage (HOSS). Two-thirds of the spent fuel rods sitting in US reactor cooling ponds could now be removed and put into HOSS; doing this would greatly reduce the possible impact of a loss of coolant/cooling accident at a spent fuel pool. See http://www.psr.org/resources/principles-for-safeguarding-1.html
Another scenario similar to the Carrington Event, also not currently addressed or considered, is the destruction of unprotected integrated circuits in the control systems of nuclear power plants by Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) produced by a high altitude nuclear detonation. Such a detonation over the East Coast of the US would hammer dozens of nuclear power plants. Imagine 20 or 30 Fukushimas occurring simultaneously in the US. Another little problem we haven't gotten around to dealing with."
As you can read in Groups: Nuclear Energy Institute Is Pushing NRC to Shortchange Environmental Review of Long-Term Radioactive Waste Storage, the feeble efforts so far to tackle this extremely serious problem are going nowhere because of the enormous pressure exerted by the nuclear industry to get another free pass to more profits and thus avoid taking care of this critical issue. As for the long-term storage of highly radioactive nuclear waste materials, the following article shows that it is going nowhere, except in ever more dangerous potential failure territory
There are NUMEROUS urgent issues that need to be addressed at this critical moment of humanity's history, but none is as ominously critical as this one issue of preventing a global and near eternal extreme radioactive contamination of the entire planet. We owe it to our children and to countless future generations to stop procrastinating on this and finally launch a crash program to fix this problem.
As you can see below, authorities have made a good head start in Europe at long last but nothing won't actually get done for several more years, so there too some people need to get their heads knocked to push them to move NOW on this.
EU agrees to bury nuclear waste in secure bunkers (20 July 2011) http://www.euractiv.com/climate-environment/eu-agrees-bury-nuclear-waste-sec-news-506664
Radioactive waste from Europe's 143 nuclear reactors must in future be buried in secure bunkers, ministers from EU member states agreed on Tuesday (19 July). The new rules force national nuclear authorities to draw up disposal plans by 2015, which will be vetted by Europe's Energy Commissioner Guenther Oettinger.A statement by the EU Council of Ministers said that the plans would need to cover: the management of fuel and waste, licensing, control and inspections, enforcement, public information, consultation, financing and the establishment of independent regulatory authorities. "After years of inaction, the EU for the very first time commits itself to a final disposal of nuclear waste," Oettinger said in a statement. The 14 member states using nuclear power currently store their radioactive waste in surface bunkers or warehouses for decades while it cools down. But crises such as Russia's wildfires last summer and leakage at Japan's stricken Fukushima plant have highlighted the risks posed by surface storage.
(...) Greenpeace accused the Commission of adopting an "out of sight, out of mind approach" to radioactive waste that countries such as Hungary and Bulgaria could continue exporting to Russia. "All they are doing is dumping the long-term problem on someone else and putting Europeans at risk by allowing dangerous waste convoys," said Greenpeace's EU nuclear policy advisor, Jan Haverkamp. The EU's 143 nuclear plants produce about 50,000 cubic metres (1.77 million cu ft) of radioactive waste each year, says nuclear industry body Foratom. About 15% of that is high-level waste.
Now please, do something about this...
And if you are curious to know what very few mainstream media are telling us about Fukushima, check...
... as recommended by Carol Wolman, MD (email@example.com) who wrote: "The Fukushima situation is out of control. TEPCO is reaching out for help. Pollution of the Pacific affects the entire planet, as does the threat of another explosion from an earthquake, shifting foundations, or simply removing bent fuel rods. The expertise and resources of the whole world should be made available to Japan. The UN General Assembly meets in a couple of weeks. Fukushima Response Bay Area is working to introduce a resolution to declare Fukushima an international emergency, and assemble an international team to help. Please sign and circulate."
As they explain on their website, "The March 11, 2011 Fukushima earthquake and tsunami resulted in three core meltdowns and massive releases of radiation to the air and the water; these continue for the foreseeable future. The threat to the future of the people of Japan and of the greater world remains grave. There is a significant probability that another major earthquake would cause Reactor 4s spent fuel pool to rupture and drain, exposing 1,533 nuclear fuel assemblies to air, resulting in a catastrophic meltdown causing a global disaster like we have never before experienced. Fukushima Response Bay Area seeks to create a groundswell of public opinion, mobilizing the necessary political will to marshal an international effort to end this nuclear disaster."
Meanwhile, it would be a GREAT idea to dismantle and do away with all nuclear weapons on the planet, instead of building ever more...
ALL QUIET ALERT: With the Sun's disk almost completely devoid of sunspots, solar flare activity has come to a halt. Measurements by NOAA's GOES 15 satellite show that the sun's global x-ray emission, a key metric of solar activity, has flatlined: The quiet is unlikely to break this weekend. NOAA forecasters estimate a scant 1% chance of M- or X-class solar flares during the next 24-48 hours. The quiet spell is a bit strange because 2013 is supposed to be a year of solar maximum, with lots of flares and sunspots. Supporting this view are data from NASA-supported observatories which show that the sun's magnetic field is poised to flip--a long-held sign that Solar Max has arrived. Nevertheless, solar activity is low. One possible explanation is that Solar Max is double-peaked and we are in the valley between peaks. If so, solar activity could surge again in late 2013-2014. No one can say for sure, though. Researchers have been studying sunspots for more than 400 years, and we still cannot predict the behavior of the solar cycle. Continued quiet or stormy space weather? Both are possible in the weeks and months ahead.
Hard not to wonder : Is this the calm before the storm ? Or, alternatively, is the sun keeping quiet - thus avoiding further disturbing flailing human minds in response to a collective demand, expressed from the center of our global Oneness Consciousness during our weekly meditations (for instance) and on a continuing basis, to remain calm and thus facilitate the transition to a higher consciousness here on Earth? Definitely what we prefer to believe in... AND the vision we want to nurture.
