America Is Dead. Long Live America. Out of the ashes of the old arises the new. How might our vision, our creativity, our compassion, allow us to manifest a world of abundance that holds all life sacred?

Build this new paradigm. See the possibility of collapse without fear, without suffering, because we can see the light of love illuminating our path. Quell the acculturated desire to go along with the crowd, to act according to the old normal, just to be accepted or liked. Find your peace inside and live it in every moment.

CHANGE IS INEVITABLE AND MAY BRING PAIN, BUT IT DOES NOT REQUIRE SUFFERING.

Debt cannot be the foundation of our money. Creating money out of *thin air*, banks do not deserve interest as their *own* money is hardly at risk. This Ponzi scheme requires fools or foreclosures to grow and must be replaced. Money is a way to trade energy; your personal work exchanged for goods and services, and that is all!

End speculation and our *casino* mentality. Stocks should be a way to invest in companies and share in the profits, not a tool for gambling. Tax short term gains at 90%. Forbid short sales. Celebrate slow money.

Feel an amazing joy found amid life in Nature. Life abounds! Earth will survive even Man’s mistakes!

Greed is a cycle to overcome: the more you get the more you want. Its remedy is to be generous, giving even when it is uncomfortable. How much is enough; enough food, enough money, enough stuff?

Honor your instincts. Fat, sugar, and salt were always scarce. When you found a source, it was evolutionarily appropriate to gorge on them. Today this makes us obese. Know why you do what you do.

Institutions never last forever. There are many alternatives to every paradigm. Search for better ways!

Juxtapose Nature’s right to surround Man with an abundance of real wealth with a corporation’s supposed *right* to pursue only profit at the expense of the people an ecosystems. Corps are not real!

KNOW AND DEEPEN YOUR INTIMATE RELATIONSHIP WITH YOUR HIGHER POWER.

Learn and role model the 3 greatest Commandments: Love God, love your neighbor, love yourself.

Movetoamend.org  Getting corporations out of politics is simple. No company funds can be spent to buy media that is not product-related, to sponsor lobbyists, or to fund political campaigns. Corps are a fiction created to protect people from liability for their actions and are focused entirely on profit, not real wealth.

REPEAT AS NEEDED: NO ONE HAS GONE TO JAIL!

NUZZLE SOMEONE EVERY DAY. INTIMACY IS PRICELESS!

OFFER KINDNESS TO OTHERS IN RANDOM AND CREATIVE WAYS.

Participate in the growing movement towards healthy relationships, families and communities. Step out of Wall Street with its international banking & investments and focus on speculation & profits and instead step onto Main Street, supporting and working with your neighbors instead. Share, invest, grow local.

Quiet your monkey mind and listen for the small inner voice deep inside your heart urging you to lean into new creative possibilities and exciting new experiences available in each and every moment!

REALIZE RECYCLING IS NOT THE ANSWER! Our culture amazingly thinks that it is easier to: drill and extract oil from underground and/or water, transport it to a refinery, turn it into plastic, shape it appropriately, ship it to a store where you drive to buy it and take it home and throw it into a *recycling* container to be trucked to some poor neighborhood or ecosystem in an attempt to absolve your own guilt, THAN IT IS TO WASH A SPOON AFTER EATING.

SACRED REVERANCE FOR ALL LIFE FORMS IS OUR ONLY HOPE FOR PEACE AND HAPPINESS.

Tell a different story. KNOW THAT YOU ARE NOT YOUR STUFF, YOUR JOB, OR YOUR MONEY. Seek a different story, with a different ending and point of view; one that leads to peace and joy.

Unite your voice with others who are steeped in compassion and love. Expound and demonstrate your profound, unique, and exquisite creativity and ability to light the path for others who will follow.

Value dialogue as a way to understand others and their needs. Reframe your story to include all stakeholders. Deeply listen to others; respect the experiences that led them to their view; evolve your views.

Walk you talk because the Universe reflects your inner world back at you. LOVE YOURSELF AND SEE LOVE AS IT SURROUNDS YOU IN EVERY MOMENT!

Xpand your view of what is possible. LIVE AS THE BEING YOU CAME HERE TO BE.

Yield your desire to control; instead accept this moment as perfect and eager to grant you new experiences, sensations, and wisdom. Yearn for greatness, and then step into you full and complete voice.

ZEST FOR LIFE: EMBRACE IT!
