Note To Core Integral Abba Is Creating The Global Spiritual Awakening

Here's how. Abba is in everyone. More and more people are seeing that creeds do not cut it, that way if life is where it's at. More and more are understanding that values, willed values, tell the tale. More and more are seeing that the virtues we have thought were values are just what they are - virtues that can be respected but not willed. Values are inherently what we act upon. You do not act on heroism or honor though these may characterize your attitude and inclinations. The active values of spiritual awakening are those Jesus made manifest in the Gospel of Mark. They are first non-idolatry - placing Abba first and worshiping nothing and no one. The three active values are democracy, helpfulness and tolerance. These interact and with non-idolatry create progress in the world which is what Jesus was and is about. The notion that you can organize a global spiritual awakening is fatuous. The movement is massively bigger than any individual or organization. That is its power and its potential for victory.

"Sto Perigiali" One of the Surpassingly Best Tunes Theodorakis Has Written

A Setting for a Poem "Denial" Beloved by the Greek People by the Nobel Prize Winning Poet Giorgos Seferis

The remarkable video at the link above is of a performance of "Sto perigiali" Mario Frangoulis and Mikis Theodorakis in 2001.

Frangoulis and Theodorakis are joined by musicians, including two bouzouki players, and a very large audience that is completely familiar with the words. The audience joins in at Frangoulis' prompt.

This is my very favorite Theodorakis melody. Those who know Theodorakis only for his "Zorba" music are in for a treat. When I was in Athens in 1966, for a short period of study with Constantinos Doxiadis, I knew nothing of Theodorakis. But about five years later, my friend Irene Vassos sang "Sto perigiali" to us. I have never gotten the tune out of my mind.

Later, when Irene joined our group to form a travelling company performing "New Rain", I learned to pick out a …

Obama Ads Should Be Grass Roots Cinema Verite

ShortFormContent at Blogger: How President Obama Can Win Christian Conservatives:

'via Blog this'

To counter the invidious efforts of Karl Rove and the Brothers Koch, simple videos of everyday people expressing gratitude for specific results from specific things that the President has achieved will create a signature response that will turn the tables on the Super PACs.

There could be an intro that flags lies distortions and anonymous attacks as unreal and even criminal and a cut to what is real, recognizable and not anonymous I am (name). I have lived here in (name) for (time). Thanks to (President Obama's (name) Act ... and so forth for ten seconds. Close with a continuation of the story narrated over evocative images and simple acoustic music.

This would be a fantastic way to counter the attacks on the President. For every specific attack, a video that shows the truth. And grass roots people who intend to vote for the President.
