Conscious Planet: Our
New Monthly Media Guide
What a month!
People could not go shopping in the Washington, D.C., area without the
being shot at; Muscovites visiting a popular play either barely survived
terror of Chechens or were killed by their own government?s gas; tourists
nightclub in paradise-like Bali got massacred. In the meantime, the
about a war against Iraq is still looming over our future and the threat
Qaeda terrorism in the U.S. has not disappeared. On top of this, we are
one of the most important and exciting midterm elections in decades.
Is there any connection between these events? Maybe -- not always
surely indirectly. For this month?s website, I interviewed a man whose
mission is to look at the big picture and advocate systems change in order
live in a better world. He is
Paul Ray, the
well-known market research guru who coined the term ?cultural creatives,?
describes the 50 million Americans who are leading the change in our
culture. He is currently researching trends in U.S. politics, and
the usual Democratic vs. Republican distinction is no longer an accurate
reflection of the American electorate. He also describes how 14 percent of
population controls 80 percent of the money flowing into politics. If the
political system does not change, he foresees more crises. This alarmist
scenario is echoed by someone who hardly can be called an activist: former
anchor Walter Cronkite said in a recent speech that the country is at a
critical point in its history. We are facing not only the threat of
war, but also the fact that the U.S. is no longer a democracy but an
according to Cronkite. I suggest everyone also read the article ?The
Greatest Country in the World?? in which Dr. Ian Mayo-Smith investigates
best and worst of the American character.
Besides pondering the big picture, it is equally important to spend some
reading and relaxing. Paraview Press? latest book,
Sonic Thread by
Cynthia Snodgrass, illustrates the life lessons she?s learned by studying
With exercises that help us use sound and music to deepen our
is a great gift for the holiday season. Another book I would like to
is one of Paraview?s bestsellers:
Trauma Room One: The JFK
Medical Coverup Exposed. As we are approaching the 39th anniversary of
death on November 22, this book continues to startle readers with
details about the JFK assassination.
There is much more to read about on our site this month and in our media
with some interesting new media sources. (If you're a Paraview author or
let us know about your upcoming activities for the Conscious Life portion
newsletter.) Have a look around, and do not forget the big picture when
