“I would now rouse women’s essence, spirit, to rise as birds in flight over fields, leaving swiftly earths dust, that they may speedily cross the frontier into the great world of light and brilliance. I desire that they be leaders, awakened lions, advance messengers of learning and intelligence; that they may serve as rafts crossing cloudy ferries; as lamps in dark chambers.” ~Qiu Jin Poet, revolutionary, feminist and writer 1875-1907

“It’s no wonder we don’t defend the land where we live. We don’t live here. We live in television programs and movies and books and with celebrities and in heaven and by rules and laws and abstractions created by people far away and we live anywhere and everywhere except in our particular bodies on this particular land at this particular moment in these particular circumstances.” ~ Derrick Jensen

“So don’t be frightened, dear friend, if a sadness confronts you larger than any you have ever known, casting its shadow over all you do. You must think that something is happening within you, and remember that life has not forgotten you; it holds you in its hand and will not let you fall. Why would you want to exclude from your life any uneasiness, any pain, any depression, since you don’t know what work they are accomplishing within you?” ~Rainer Maria Rilke

Anonymous, the Occupy Movement, and others are calling for a massive Worldwide Wave of Action beginning on April 4th, the anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King. It calls for sustained heart led, peaceful rebellion and creative action over a 3 month period, which will be very powerful and cause things to shift dramatically in the right direction. If you go to their website, https://waveofaction.org/ you will see lots of suggestions on how to get involved, including mass meditations, prayer groups and so much more. People from all over the globe are creating and posting up new events that will be happening that we can join in on. They have been posting up some amazing videos on their Facebook page (Worldwide Wave of Action) that have really inspired me and I plan on getting involved in some of the events as well as coming up with my own creative acts. There are so many ways to participate ~ so check them out and hopefully you will be inspired to get involved and spread this message to others. We are the tide that is going to turn this thing around and this wave cannot be stopped. It’s going to be epic. Power to the People!!!

Martin Luther King is a driving force behind the Worldwide Wave of Action. Check out this Anonymous video featuring Dr. King…
