DONATE to good causes, it makes life so rich and yummy!

I just wanted to share my two favorite causes to donate to.

I like to focus on giving to the causes that promote well being and advancing humanity brightly toward the future.

If you feel so compelled, add these to your tithing list, and if not these, let this blog entry be a reminder to how GOOD it is to donate.

Tithing expands love in your heart and brings money back to YOU. But it is not just about the good feeling of giving, or the money. This is about spreading the knowledge of great service.

My favorite group to donate to is called Living Yoga started by Sarahjoy Marsh.



http://www.living-yoga.org/

"Living Yoga is a non-profit outreach program teaching yoga as a tool for personal change in prisons, drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers, transitional facilities, and to populations who would otherwise not have access to it."
AMAZING in a word. Go peace.

And this new foundation added to my list is called the Pens and Paper for Peace, the Matthew Freeman Project.



http://www.freemanproject.org/

There is so much to say regarding this one. I cannot even begin. There is tons of love wrapped around passing this particular message on. To put it simply, my husband had a friend from high school who was shot and killed in Afghanistan. Before he died, this was his message to his Mom to start a donation project:
"...the kids would rather have pens and paper than food and water."
Please visit the web page and learn the simple details of promoting peace through education for the future in the middle east and within our world of tomorrow.

Love, Peace, Donate

My Show, Humanity's Show

So, the idea to place an audition video to have my own show on Oprah's web site for her new network called OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network), really started out as a joke in my mind! How many times have you seen a television show where they ask you to publicly share or enter your information or your SELF in one way or another? And of course each time, you just hit the next channel on the remote control. Well for some reason this video of me was recorded and placed on that web site. I felt a drive, a pull. In my video audition, I really just blabbed about what came to my head and what I am currently excited about while serving the world and humanity and I hit the record button. Though, I DO feel I can make a positive and dramatic difference in this world, would anybody ever really listen, is this audition good enough? And after many days of my video being posted on the O.W.N. audition web site, I have not re-viewed it. So I watched it again today. And though, I am constantly excited about all the many ways I want to help the world, I realized in my video, I really just seemed to speak about myself, my interests and how I think other people would agree/could benefit from the things that I have found healing and fascinating. So I am taking this blog to go more in-depth and explain a bit more about my vision in regards to OTHER people's benefit.

Votes are slowly rolling in for my video! And while I do not have 8 million votes like some other auditions on the web site, I still do feel as though I may have a shot at at least being interviewed or probed about my idea. So the silliness has dropped away from my imagination. Now, more than ever, I would LOVE a shot at this endeavor!

My idea for a show, is not much different than my idea for my life. I want to serve and help Unify the world, or humanity to see ourselves as one single race.

I plan to take the travels I already go on and expand on these. I want to learn about, bring, teach and spread peace everywhere I go. I want to talk with others who do the same and swell this mission. I want to meet different cultures and educate folks about other types of people who they might not otherwise ever have learned about. Unity is the goal here. I have learned that people are yes, very different from place to place. For example, just today I saw an old, huge, beat up Okinawan dump truck driving down the highway with (drumroll)....dainty black lace curtains in the side windows of the vehicle. This confused me. You do not see this odd frill and delicate feature on the garbage trucks of the United States! They are different here in many ways and not just with their automobile curtains. I want to know more about the Japanese. And aside from the rather misplaced black, lace curtains, when you go deeper and learn about people or cultures, you find so many surprising similarities within humanity. We are all the same. We all wake up in the morning and scratch our butts and stretch our toes from solemn monks on a mountain top temple, to scrappy kids running through a third world slum. When we learn about one another in detail, we find our Unity. I plan to take this idea further. Everywhere I go in my life, I want to learn about what WORKS for people. How did you find your health, your cure, your peace, your fortune, your religion, your happiness, your connection or calm within your feuding family or politics, your balance? When I learn what works for people, I will pass it along. Either through this blog, my Yoga classes, Reiki sessions, my artwork or through my very own talk show on Oprah's new network!

I am eager to showcase historical shrines around the world, ashrams, peace parks, meditation gardens and places of earthly majesty. I like to spread anything positive or peaceful. I love history. History explains in detail why we are where we are this day. But more, I love to place an enlightened spin on where we are headed, as the human race. Contrary to popular belief, I think we are going in an amazing direction. I see a revolution coming. I see adventure, peace, beauty, rising awareness, expanding consciousness and this is what I plan to document.

Whether on this blog, or with Oprah's network by my side, I am eager to interview forward thinking medical practitioners, wellness centers and hospitals, women who have had progressive child birthing, people who have had amazing healing of cancers or dis-eases, studies in genealogy, documenting the law of attraction in action, companies large and small who have ground breaking GREEN technology, artists who think outside of the box, healers who work with new and ancient ideas and finally people who know about how to teach us things like feng shui, nutrition, meditation or Yoga, ways to help us all make our lives more balanced or just a little better without spending a dime-things we can start to change about our lives today for the very BEST.

I am interested in promoting the good, the positive, the facts. We are living in a society that seems to dwell on the negative, the train wrecks of the news. As they say in The Secret, it is important to be informed, sure, but not INUNDATED. However, I intend to share and inundate people with the positive, the magic, the love, the miracle that is this life....in one format or many! Why, less than 8 months ago I started a facebook group called: "Artists, Writers and Creative Thinkers" to help promote and network all of my very, very talented artist, writer and musician friends. This group flew up to over 400 members world wide in this short time, with almost zero promotion:

This shows me how hungry people are for honest beauty and aesthetics, just feeling good! ~...feeling creative and I love the root word to that one, create. Anyone can be creative if they just let themselves. Join me, wont you? Let us believe in Divine beauty and celebrate it together.

If you wish to vote one time or ten for my future OWN show, see the link below and I deeply thank you for voting, for reading, for spending your time on this blog page and with me. I am humbled by the readers. I love each of you!!! Know that.
Peace to you,
Praise and blessings to you,
Rebecca
