Bear Attack – Explicit Photos

Churchill, Manitoba, Canada


Below are pictures of an actual polar bear attacking a man.


Reports from the local newspaper say that the man will make a full recovery.


The pictures were taken while people watched and could do nothing to stop the attack!

Dear Woman

This video has become extremely controversial, however, a lot of the people are either missing the point or just haven’t evolved to the point where they can see a future of world peace and balance between the masculine and feminine. I have no comment on the video itself but I applaud the men who participated in it’s production.

This video will confront you, make you angry or make you cry:

Peace is the Process

Peace is not merely a distant goal that we seek but a means by which we arrive at that goal.

From: http://amberscotchburn.wordpress.com/

Ahhh…the elusive goal of peace for which we all strive.

Ohhh…the book, ‘The Tao of Pooh” that tells you how to attain it!

And guess what?! It’s very simple. Just be.

Think back to when you were a kid before you had the “everything that might go wrong” or the “everything that has gone wrong” files! You just did! Think back to the pure joy and freedom that came along with . . . read more

Song For The Elephant

A testament to the Very Incredible Gift We Have Been Given: Earth.

I really enjoyed this video.

From the CD CD-“Seeds of Wild Love” , lyrics by Ben Bushill Music by Thomas Falk and Ellen Molnia

LYRICS by Ben Bushill:

Song for the Elephant

Great grey god,
The canyons on your back
Carry the dust and darkness of a lifetimes wandering.
Nomad child
Clay and sunlight
Earth and hope.
Your presence here sends me tumbling into the mystery,
I am carried by the endless brown sea
Of your eye
Into the story of my own birth,
And the song of death.
I would lay down this nomad’s body with the great white bones
Of your ancestors and have my body turn to red earth
Under that mythical sun.
Not for me this long life of civilized death
For I am riding on your spreading back
Into a dawn of my own
And the rose dust sky is as wide as forever.
And for bearing me
I give you thanks
And whisper some of my own secrets into that silent cave
Where all pasts are remembered as echo songs
And all futures dissolve
Into a thick pounding wave of blood
Washing out from a heart
Of red dust and quiet starlight

Flood

Somehow a page turns
And beauty is revealed
Remembered.
The deep hands of love
Open their fingers
To free the dove that
Soars from the heart
Toward the infinite perfection
Of this simple life.
This simple life
Where miracle is the essence
Of every stitch in the tapestry of time and feeling.
The dance unfolds across worlds
Worlds upon worlds,
My feet tread the earth
My tears fall on the page
Love sweeps through me
And the waves takes all in its arms
Crushing, turning, soothing
Endless grace, lost and longed for
Nourishes the dry corners of forgetfulness
As the water rushes
Across the desert floor
And life awakens in every cell,
Frogs hear the call of their birth
And celebrate the rain
Flowers spring forth from doubt
And the whole vibrant, impossible
Infinite universe
Turns green in wonder
As my heart knows once again
the reason for my birth

The bear

Lie with me
And I will hold you
With the round, deliberate presence of a bear.
Bury your head in my fur
And I will rest my claws on your soft back
And when you listen to the sigh of my breath
And feel the rising and falling of my great chest
You will know what it is
To be held by the animal green
Of the world.
In total rest,
In warm blooded silence.
And those who saw your closed eyes
Could be forgiven for thinking you dead
With the peace soaked so deeply into you skin
But the smile upon your lips
And the light about your face
Tell the story of the earth
And that story
Is a story of life and wonder
That story is written on our bones
For us to read
Again and again
As we drop into the peace of the world
And the light of remembrance
Unfolds in hearts
Crafted from the dark, sweet soil
and sung into life
by the endless voice
Of the source of love.

Letter From Sendai, Japan 15-Mar-2011

Sent: Tuesday, March 15, 2011 11:51 PM
Subject: Letter from Japan

Hello My Lovely Family and Friends,

First I want to thank you so very much for your concern for me. I am very touched. I also wish to apologize for a generic message to you all. But it seems the best way at the moment to get my message to you.

Things here in Sendai have been rather surreal. But I am very blessed to have wonderful friends who are helping me a lot. Since my shack is even more worthy of that name, I am now staying at a friend’s home. We share supplies like water, food and a kerosene heater. We sleep lined up in one room, eat by candlelight, share stories. It is warm, friendly, and beautiful.

During the day we help each other clean up the mess in our homes. People sit in their cars, looking at news on their navigation screens, or line up to get drinking water when a source is open. If someone has water running in their home, they put out sign so people can come to fill up their jugs and buckets.

Utterly amazingly where I am there has been no looting, no pushing in lines. People leave their front door open, as it is safer when an  earthquake strikes. People keep saying, “Oh, this is how it used to be in the old days when everyone helped one another.”

Quakes keep coming. Last night they struck about every 15 minutes. Sirens are constant and helicopters pass overhead often.

We got water for a few hours in our homes last night, and now it is for half a day. Electricity came on this afternoon. Gas has not yet come on.

But all of this is by area. Some people have these things, others do not. No one has washed for several days. We feel grubby, but there are so much more important concerns than that for us now. I love this peeling away of non-essentials. Living fully on the level of instinct, of intuition, of caring, of what is needed for survival, not just of me, but of the entire group.

There are strange parallel universes happening. Houses a mess in some places, yet then a house with futons or laundry out drying in the sun.

People lining up for water and food, and yet a few people out walking their dogs. All happening at the same time.

Other unexpected touches of beauty are first, the silence at night. No cars. No one out on the streets. And the heavens at night are scattered with stars. I usually can see about two, but now the whole sky is filled.

The mountains are Sendai are solid and with the crisp air we can see them silhouetted against the sky magnificently.

And the Japanese themselves are so wonderful. I come back to my shack to check on it each day, now to send this e-mail since the electricity is on, and I find food and water left in my entranceway. I have no idea from whom, but it is there. Old men in green hats go from door to door checking to see if everyone is OK. People talk to complete strangers asking if they need help. I see no signs of fear. Resignation, yes, but fear or panic, no.

They tell us we can expect aftershocks, and even other major quakes, for another month or more. And we are getting constant tremors, rolls, shaking, rumbling. I am blessed in that I live in a part of Sendai that is a bit elevated, a bit more solid than other parts. So, so far this area is better off than others. Last night my friend’s husband came in from the country, bringing food and water. Blessed again.

Somehow at this time I realize from direct experience that there is indeed an enormous Cosmic evolutionary step that is occurring all over the world right at this moment. And somehow as I experience the events happening now in Japan, I can feel my heart opening very wide. My brother asked me if I felt so small because of all that is happening. I don’t. Rather, I feel as part of something happening that much larger than myself. This wave of birthing (worldwide) is hard, and yet magnificent.

Thank you again for your care and Love of me,

With Love in return, to you all,

I cancelled my cable subscription about two years ago and switched to internet content. It saves me around $60 per month. Today I found an excellent article by Lindsay Dunsmuir, in New York,  that outlines the alternatives:
