Imagine next time around instead of marching, we hold a One Night Stand, as millions and perhaps billions of us stand up where we are and tune in to a worldwide music concert celebrating our STANDING UP FOR the sacred, for the web of life, and a world where we are indeed all in it together.

This massive "stand" will serve notice to our governments that their legitimacy depends on their protecting our right to grow our own food, cultivate and sell our own seeds, and have healthy, uncontaminated soil.

And " before we stand up together, perhaps we first must learn to sit down together, which brings me to the second purpose of this post. While disconnecting the life-destroying influences in our world may be necessary, unless we learn how to connect the good, we will be reactors instead of creators. So how do we shuffle the letters from "reactor" to "creator?"

I'm glad I asked that question.

Connecting the Good -- A Global Local Movement

While writing Spontaneous Evolution several years ago, I learned about an intriguing transformational project in -- of all places -- Reno, Nevada. At the time, it was called Conscious Community Network, and sought to gather diverse constructive elements in the community around commonly held virtues and values to address the human needs in that community. In fact, Bruce Lipton and I devote a section in our "Healing the Body Politic" chapter to this unique experiment.

Now, after ten years of successful practice, Richard Flyer -- founder of Conscious Community Network and its successor, Connecting the Good -- is sharing what he knows about bringing together diverse community to "weave a web of mass-construction."

So -- having been "fouled" we stand together at the free throw line with "two chances to make Oneness."   First, come out on Saturday to make a stand for food freedom.  

Then next Wednesday, join Richard Flyer and discover how to re-grow the Garden from the grassroots up.
