LIVING LOVE REVOLUTION MEDIA STREAM FOR AUG/SEPT 2016
“Peace is not just about the absence of conflict; it’s also about the presence of justice. … A counterfeit peace exists when people are pacified or distracted or so beat up and tired of fighting that all seems calm. But true peace does not exist until there is justice, restoration, forgiveness. Peacemaking doesn’t mean passivity. It is the act of interrupting injustice without mirroring injustice, the act of disarming evil without destroying the evildoer, the act of finding a third way that is neither fight nor flight but the careful, arduous pursuit of reconciliation and justice. It is about a revolution of love that is big enough to set both the oppressed and the oppressors free.”
This and other prayers are found in the book Common Prayer: A Liturgy for Ordinary Radicals by Shaine Claiborne available on Amazon
Mycelium, Bees & Stardust are the central mysteries of the Living Love Revolution. What does this mean? In 2009 Reverend Ciacchi began to understand that the kinds of intelligence and wisdom that humans need more of is not being generated only by other humans. She began to see that especially three non-humans had vitally important intelligences to share. She chose to focus on Mycelium, Bees and Stardust as her teachers at that time.
Here is a small update on what we have noticed on how Mycelium, Bees and Stardust are BEING in the multiverse or showing up in human consciousness

Strategies used by women working in the Obama administration that might be helpful to us. “Female staffers adopted a meeting strategy they called “amplification”: When a woman made a key point, other women would repeat it, giving credit to its author. This forced the men in the room to recognize the contribution — and denied them the chance to claim the idea as their own.”
