New book by Andrew Harvey and Carolyn Baker: Return to Joy

Quote:Return to Joy is a compelling and potent invitation to the reader to consider that joy is the ultimate nature of reality and that its absence lies at the root of the current, unprecedented global crisis. In this book, Andrew and Carolyn mine the mystical wisdom of the ages that places joy at the core of our existence and purpose as a species, moving forward to consider in depth the myriad enemies of joy in our time. As we tend the fires of joy, we celebrate its seven flames and nurture its ubiquitous presence whether in the background or the foreground of our lives.

WE NEED A REVOLUTION: Overcoming Fascism with a Movement of Love

Maybe making fascism redundant would be a more appropriate term/intention...

Ra Wrote:Nothing shall be overcome. That which is not needed falls away.
...
The reason it is unwise to overcome is that overcoming is an unbalanced action creating difficulties in balancing in the time/space continuum. Overcoming thus creates the further environment for holding onto that which apparently has been overcome.

'We Will Continue To Resist Trump and Empire' Declares Green Party’s Jill Stein

Jill Stein Wrote:Peaceful Revolution Must Meet Violent Suffering

Stein and the Greens hope to ultimately create an America and world that works for everyone. To be sure, they believe the anti-establishment revolt is driven by very real suffering, very real unemployment and very real falling wages.

What’s more, not only did they just earn over one million more votes in this election, doubling their vote count from 2012, but appeared to have tapped into the anger at economic inequality.

Instead of using the anger to manipulate and divide the people against each other, though, Stein believes the Green’s guiding principles must always be unity, empathy, a call to action and peaceful revolution which avoids the endless cycles of violence.

How the vegan movement broke out of its echo chamber and is making changes in Washington D.C

Regarding the positive Trump news, there will no doubt be positive outcomes of this election, in the short term (which don't cancel out the negative, catalystical ones), and, given the inevitable positive future of this planet, much more so in the medium and long term - I'm not quite sure though that the ones mentioned in the graphic will prove true, see for example Leaders of TPP nations to review options with US President Obama?

Washington, D.C. – Today, the Army informed the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, Energy Transfer Partners, and Dakota Access, LLC, that it has completed the review that it launched on September 9, 2016. The Army has determined that additional discussion and analysis are warranted in light of the history of the Great Sioux Nation’s dispossessions of lands, the importance of Lake Oahe to the Tribe, our government-to-government relationship, and the statute governing easements through government property.
The Army invites the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe to engage in discussion regarding potential conditions on an easement for the pipeline crossing that would reduce the risk of a spill or rupture, hasten detection and response to any possible spill, or otherwise enhance the protection of Lake Oahe and the Tribe’s water supplies. The Army invites discussion of the risk of a spill in light of such conditions, and whether to grant an easement for the pipeline to cross Lake Oahe at the proposed location. The Army continues to welcome any input that the Tribe believes is relevant to the proposed pipeline crossing or the granting of an easement.
While these discussions are ongoing, construction on or under Corps land bordering Lake Oahe cannot occur because the Army has not made a final decision on whether to grant an easement. The Army will work with the Tribe on a timeline that allows for robust discussion and analysis to be completed expeditiously.
We fully support the rights of all Americans to assemble and speak freely, and urge everyone involved in protest or pipeline activities to adhere to the principles of nonviolence.
