I set a timer on my phone, a daily reminder to sit down, sit still, and visualize for 8 minutes at 8 PM, my highest self and the societies, the planet, a world in balance.
We are encouraging everyone to do this as often as we can.
Holding the highest vision for ourselves and others, ways of being within and realities without, is a powerful tool to create Nova Earth and demonstrate our mastery.
Archangel Michael, in a personal reading with Steve about setting deadlines, said they help us with:
“The sense of immediacy for action, of stepping forward, whether it is an external action or what you would think [of as] internal, meditation, visualization, it matters not.”
We thank you for joining us, 8 Minutes @ 8 PM, doing this.

This post written by Divya Kunapuli for everyaction, in 2017 contains a list of nonprofits,”doing their part in building a better tomorrow.”
“The last few days have been equal parts terrifying, challenging, and complicated.
“There’s a long fight ahead, but for issues that stir you, one simple, positive thing you can do today is give – your time, money, voice, or attention – because so many organizations need your urgent support.
“At EveryAction, we live and work by the motto “Build the World You Want.” No matter how much you give or to whom, the important thing is to support those organizations whose tireless work is striving for a world you want to live in.
“To that end, we’ve put together a list of nonprofits doing their part in building a better tomorrow. This list is by no means exhaustive and many of these nonprofits do intersectional work that falls under multiple issue areas, but we hope offers a good place to get started.”

This post, also written in 2017, is by Gabriella Canal for Global Citizen.
“The most innovative solutions to the world’s biggest problems don’t always have to come from grown-ups.
“In fact, sometimes the biggest ideas come from the smallest humans.
“Around the world, child philanthropists are proving just how easy it is to spread goodness through simple, creative acts.
“They’re helping the homeless, starting nationwide anti-bullying campaigns, garnering support for the environment from celebrities, and raising millions in the wake of natural disasters — and still finding a way to finish their homework on time.
“These little problem-solvers are working to make a better world and showing exactly what it means to be a Global Citizen.”

Chris Smith: Sonoma County’s Pothole Bandits
Pick a New Most Miserable Road
By Chris Smith, The Press Democrat, August 18, 2018
Thank you again to Petra for sending this along.
“No one knows better than the Pothole Bandits that cratered, cracked, washboardy roads rattle teeth and punish automobile suspensions throughout Sonoma County.
“These two safety-minded vigilantes have picked a new favorite as the worst local road of them all.
“The Pothole Bandits, you may know, are a retired couple who patrol county roads and streets on a motorcycle.
“Upon spotting a deep, dangerous pothole or other asphalt hazard, Peter Babcock and Lauren Roy stop. They pull out orange spray-paint and stencils.
“And they paint warning circles around the potholes. They also provide additional notice-of-peril to motorcyclists, bicyclists and drivers by painting arrows and skulls-and-crossbones on the approaches to the holes and fissures.”

Liberals Vow to Lift 2 Million Canadians
Out of Poverty by 2030 With No New Spending
CBC News, Posted: August 21, 2018
Thank you to Len for sending this one along.
The Liberal government says it’s possible to pull more than two million people over the poverty line by 2030 without committing to any new spending or policy promises.
Instead, Social Development Minister Jean-Yves Duclos pointed to a list of already announced federal programs to reach that goal.
Duclos was in Vancouver Tuesday to unveil the Liberal’s anti-poverty plan, called “Opportunity for All — Canada’s First Poverty Reduction Strategy.”
It calls for a reduction in the rate of poverty by 20 per cent from 2015 levels by 2020 and by 50 per cent by 2030.
That would mean about 2.1 million people would no longer live under the poverty line within 12 years.
