In the Library … The Hidden Splendor *** OSHO

Love knows how to forgive. 
Love cannot hurt and cannot be violent.
These violent feelings will not disappear 
unless their energy is transformed into love. 

And the true love knows nothing of jealousy. 
Any love that is followed by jealousy is 
certainly not the true love, it is biological instinct.
The higher you move — from body to mind, 
from heart to being — all these crude feelings 
disappear. Love from being to being knows no jealousy.
And how are you going to find such love?
It is a radiation of your silence, 
of your peace, of your inner well-being, 
of your blissfulness. 
You are so blissful that you want to 
share it — that sharing is love.
Love is not a beggar.
It never asks, “give me love.”
Love is always an emperor.
It only knows to give. 
It never even imagines, expects, anything in return.
The Hidden Splendor
Ch: Love is Always an Emperor

Rise up once again to stop coal exports — RSVP to attend the hearing May 24.

The Pacific Northwest is rising up once again to protect our beautiful region from fossil fuel projects that threaten the health of communities, the environment, and our climate.

Millennium Bulk Terminals is proposing to ship an estimated 44 million tons of coal a year by way of the Columbia River Gorge, contaminating communities with toxic coal dust along the route and in Longview, WA where they already have some of the highest asthma rates in the state. When it comes to keeping coal in the ground, it’s up us to make sure decision makers listen to the people and not polluting fossil fuel companies.

Rise up once again to stop coal exports — RSVP to attend the hearingMay 24.

Stop Millennium’s dangerous coal export project in Longview, WA!

Clean air not coal dust

RSVP to attend the hearing on Tuesday, May 24.
The power of communities coming together has already defeated five out of six coal export terminals in the Northwest. And it’s even led companies like Shell to halt plans to drill in the Arctic! By speaking up and demonstrating people power at the upcoming hearing in Longview, we can stop destructive fossil fuel projects — like Millennium’s toxic coal terminal — in their tracks. When you show up to the hearing, you are joining an unrelenting force that is stopping destructive fossil fuel projects everywhere they are proposed.

But we can’t do this without you! Attend the hearing to stop dirty coal companies from turning our region into a carbon corridor that endangers our environment and the health of our communities.

WHAT: Keep it in the ground! Hearing on coal exports.
WHEN: Tuesday, May 24, 2016 at 4:00 p.m. (please note that the hearing itself will go from 1:00 to 9:00 p.m. — we welcome you to join earlier if you can!)
WHERE: Cowlitz Regional Conference Center, 1900 7th Ave, Longview, WA 98632

RSVP today to join the growing climate movement and show coal companies like Millennium that we’ll never back down from fighting for a green and peaceful future.

It’s up to us make sure that decision-makers do all they can to prevent coal trains and a massive coal terminal in our region. The event is free and open to the public, and there will be buses for those looking for transportation. Please wear RED and attend the rally at 4:00 show your opposition to the Millennium’s coal export project.

For a clean energy future,

More drilling in our oceans?!

greenpeaceEaujee is one of the many people from the Gulf and Alaskan coasts who are standing up against more oil drilling in their communities.But they need your help to win.

Stand with Eaujee by telling President Obama to stop new drilling off the Gulf and Alaskan coasts!

I couldn’t save my city from Hurricane Katrina or the BP spill, but with your help we can stop the next disaster.

oil rig

Tell President Obama to stop new drilling in our public waters.
Last week, Shell spilled nearly 90,000 gallons of oil in the Gulf of Mexico. And yet the Obama administration is STILL considering a plan that would allow new drilling off the Gulf and Alaskan coasts, including in the fragile Arctic. This is bad for the coasts, communities, and the climate.

Please make a public comment today to tell President Obama to stop new drilling and protect our coasts!

Thank you,
