Thrive: What on Earth Will it Take?

Thrive: What on Earth Will it Take?Everyone knows our sciences (and thus humanity’s life force) have been thwarted, hindered and obstructed, taken over (appropriated) by the forces of materialism, especially since Tesla’s time.
This week, Friday, 11/11/11, Thrive: What on Earth Will it Take, Kimberly and Foster Gamble’s film premieres on the Internet, worldwide, in 10 languages.  Look for it. Unveiled in the film are truths (physics of life) we sense and aspire toward yet have accepted as unattainable. The information in Thrive shifts humanity, polarized in unknowingness, into the Light of Knowledge. The “sensed beauty” of our world becomes a reality. This information in “Thrive” forms the foundation of our new culture and civilization.

In case you haven’t noticed, there’s a great deal happening locally these days. For starters, Occupy Santa Cruz has been generating interest for weeks. Of course, after the recent riots at an Occupy Oakland rally, it’s hard not to step back and take a broader look at the Occupy Wall Street movement that has  swept the nation. (In an odd bit of timing, the new futuristic film In Time—not the best, but not bad—mirrors what’s happening in the country right now and addresses topics such as redistributing the wealth. Sound off on the matter with us online at goodtimessantacruz.com. You’ll find a number of blogs there about the local movement. In the meantime, turn to News this week (page 8), where the matter is addressed more thoroughly.

When it comes to relationships, what is super attractive? What is a deal breaker?

When it comes to relationships, what is super attractive?  What is a deal breaker?What’s super attractive to me is confidence and an independent life. The deal breaker would be using the relationship as a distraction from your own life.

Transition Initiative & the Occupiers: Discipleship Groups for the New Age

Transition Initiative & the Occupiers: Discipleship Groups for the New Age In Scorpio the World Disciple emerges. Humanity is the World Disciple in potential and actual fact. World Disciples are leaders able to perceive obstacles hindering humanity from progressing onto the Path of Evolution—the spiritual Path of Return. Returning to our origins is humanity’s heritage. We are presently at the halfway mark and beginning our ascent (returning home) after 21 million years of involution (descent into matter).
Scorpio is the sign that assists humanity in identifying as World Disciple. In our present developmental stage of chaos and conflict, where the forces of materiality battle the Forces of Light (Arjuna experience), disciples worldwide are marching into the battlefield in service to humanity. Their battle cry (in Scorpio there is definitely a battle) is “Freedom & Equality,” reflecting the values of the Aquarian Age.

Diwali – Hindu Festival of Light

Diwali – Hindu Festival of Light It’s good to understand all the world’s religious festivals. It creates religious unity. The day after Wednesday’s Scorpio new moon is Diwali, Hindu Festival of Lights. Autumn and winter festivals of light signify hope during a time of darkness. All religions time their festivals by the stars, planets, sun and moon. Diwali (Deepavali) begins in the dark half of the new moon and ends in the light half of the Scorpio new moon - a five-day autumn festival between mid October and mid November (Scorpio’s month). Celebrated when the moon passes out of Libra – accounts are balanced, the business year ends, and enters Scorpio – the new financial year begins. Libra and Venus rule money and social accounts.
Diwali is Sanskrit for “rows of lamps”—small clay oil lamps; when lit suggesting good over evil, light within darkness. Diwali, at the end of India’s harvest season, is a time of thanksgiving.

We’re living in powerful, insightful times. Change is afoot—almost everywhere you look. Something ends. Something else begins. It may sound like “seasonal” speak and mood-swing blather to you, but it’s true—we’re in a time of profound shift, politically, economically, culturally. Nobody has felt this quite so distinctly as our school systems, which have taken a brutal blow financially yet still manage to impress with what they are able to accomplish under some of the most challenging of circumstances. This week, we talk with Cabrillo head Brian King and UC Santa Cruz chancellor George Blumenthal to understand more clearly what has been unfolding on both campuses. Over the past few years, both colleges have been affected economically. So, how are they doing? The news may surprise. News Editor Elizabeth Limbach’s compelling interviews with the two men.

What are your thoughts on Occupy Wall Street?

What are your thoughts on Occupy Wall Street?

I think it's wonderful what all the people are doing in all the cities around the country right now in reference to the Wall Street crash and all the problems. And I also think they should take that and take it to the banks and the mortgage companies. I think it's wonderful and I'd like to see more of it.

A Righteous Display of Anger

A Righteous Display of Anger

The “Occupy” political movement is one of the most fascinating developments in recent years, as frustrated, self-described regular folks are stepping up to demonstrate just how furious they are with Wall Street.

They’re calling themselves the “99 percenters” and they’re focusing their antipathy towards the “1 percent” that they see as nearly taking down our economic system.

Santa Cruz Restaurant Week

A huge part of Santa Cruz Restaurant Week has always been about offering a great dining experience for an affordable price. For some locals, the $25 flat-rate cost has provided the opportunity (or the excuse!) to try new spots, and indulge in Santa Cruz fine dining in a way they might have thought too pricey before.

 

Scorpio Sun, New Moon Eclipse, Mercury Direct

The Sun enters Scorpio’s mysteries Thursday under a new moon and partial solar eclipse (something essential has come to an end, its purpose completed). In Scorpio we harbor secrets, are devoted to something deep, dark and hidden. Sometimes it’s ourselves. We can bring great suspect to our assessment of others. Scorpio is the scorpion, the serpent and the eagle—three levels of development. As the serpent we take shelter in our beliefs. Sometimes we bite (or sting). The eagle vanquishes old beliefs through its sharp intellect, soaring high in the air, seeking to understand through perspective. Understanding releases us from the bondage of fear. The eagle is like the mother soothing feelings of mistrust, offering protection. Knowledge does this, too.
