Don't make dumb mistakes! Help combat the effort to teach our children not to feel fear. It's more than just a marketing campaign for a clothing line. It's an effort, knowingly or unknowingly, to desensitize children so that they can be manipulated into doing things against their inherent nature. Children who are encouraged not to feel all feelings become dysfunctional adults and creative dysfunctional relationships. When the opportunity presents itself, take about fear - how ignoring it or pushing it out of the way can create unnecessary dangers. How the great Samurai know fear and don't hide from it but bring it out in front, put it on the end of their sword, and cut with it. Feel your own feelings. And encourage others to feel theirs. All feelings are good - fear, pain, sadness, joy and anger. It's the behaviors that we need to work with.

The Matrix Complex. While much of the world celebrated what they thought was the start of the new millennium on December 31, 1999, when the calendar made the switch to the year 2000, we still, actually, have until midnight of 12/31/00. The actual date the new millennium and new century starts is Millennium Monday, January 1, 2001 or 01.01.01. This has been confirmed by the U.S. Naval Observatory, the nation's official time keeper and the White House has a page on their site about this. They also created a Millennium Council which is developing a national Millennium Program that will engage Americans in a wide variety of activities and initiatives designed to highlight our heritage and celebrate our creativity. You see, this is based on the fact that we are using a calendar created in Rome, in 526 A.D. (Anno Domini) - a calendar that is now recognized globally. Instead of starting at year zero, that calendar began with the date January 1, 1 A.D. Consequently, the new millennium is not officially reached until 01.01.01 (mil-len-ni-um (n) A span of one thousand years). Isn't it interesting how willing most people are to live in The Matrix and go along with whatever they read in the newspapers or hear on radio or television? You might be interested on this from The Times, December 26, 1799. "We have uniformly rejected all letters and declined all discussion upon the question of when the present century ends, as it is one of the most absurd that can engage the public attention, and we are astonished to find it has been the subject of so much dispute, since it appears plain. The present century will not terminate till January 1, 1801, unless it can be made out that 99 are 100...It is a silly, childish discussion, and only exposes the want of brains of those who maintain a contrary opinion to that we have stated." You see, many of us don't learn from history. That was written over 100 years ago. For confirmation of Millennium Monday from the White House, go to www.whitehouse.gov/Initiatives/Millennium/when.html The US Naval Observatory has put together a series of pages as part of the White House Millennium program to answer many of the millennium questions such as: When Is the New Millennium? Millennial Events at the USNO. First Sunrise of the New Millennium. Countdown to the Millennium. History of the USNO Time Ball. Facts About the Millennium. For additional links for confirmation visit the Greenwich, England site at millennium.greenwich2000.com.
ETD stands for "Elapsed Time of Departure into the new millennium." So, I have a challenge for you. You've got the year of 2000 before the new millennium. What kind of person would you like to be in the new millennium? What kind of work would you like to be doing? What kind of relationship(s) would you like to be in? If the 3rd millennium was the only record of your life, what would you like it to say about you to those who follow? Use this time to become that person. Do what ever you have to do to start the new millennium off right 01.01.01. (Out-of-stock)
This idea came from a bumper sticker that was around several years ago which read "I Believe You Anita." And, while Anita was black, that was about sexism, not racism. This is clearly about racism. And, if you are white and believe that people of color have the same rights, privileges and safety as you do, I challenge you to get one of these FREE bumper stickers, put it on the nicest car you own and drive around and park in it your community, both during the day and at night. If you have the nerve to do this, I think the experience will give you a different perspective on the insidiousness of racism that we have become numb to. How far are we from the populace of Germany during the 1930's who totally accepted what the government was doing? My experience is that we have become quit numb to racism and all diversity issues as individuals in our rush to survive. Remember the Holocaust. Remember Bosnia. Remember Kosovo. Remember Los Angeles. Remember Rodney King. As Rumi said, "Don't go back to sleep." Warning: I know of at least one person who put this on their car and had all four tires slashed in San Francisco. Cars in Colorado were torched and store fronts vandalized, that simply had a Diversity sticker on them. It identified them for an act of hate and violence. And, of course we all know what has happened to Synagogues and black churches across this country. So, be aware of the level of hatred that is alive and well in these United States of America. Don't put this on your car uneless you are prepared for potential negative consequences. (Check out the movie The Color of Fear.)
