Yes let's keep the internet what it's meant to be - an amazing new way to connect and share information even if you are not a gazillionaire! ...From what i understand, defending Net Neutrality means not having website speeds hijacked by corporations trying to make MORE money - slowing down non-commercial sites that aren't able to pay more. i imagine that could mean YOUR personal website slowed down to a crawl, OR websites you want to access for helpful information that are not money-grubbing that aren't able to pay for faster times get slowed down to a crawl. So send out your intentions for a free fast-flowing internet and if you want you can sign this too, to lawmakers:

Sally writes - "I can't say enough wonderful things about my Dare to Be Present sessions with de Vie. She has become a gift in my life as friend/spiritual guide and reminds me how important and miraculous life really is."
"The Great Yoga - that is to drink, to eat, to touch, to see, to walk, to sleep, to urinate, to defecate, to listen, to remain silent, to speak, to dream, to love, to sit, to cross the street, to get on a bus, to travel through town and country, sights and sounds, beauty and ugliness without ever being separated from the divine, which is in the self. No type of yoga is better than that which isn't afraid of immersion in reality. Outside of reality, there is not a single trace of the absolute." Lalita Devi via Daniel Odier
Word of the day.
Pronounced, interestingly enough, "No-Us-Fear."
What is right now?
Right now is the most important moment of your life.
Why? Because it is the only one you actually have.
It is the only one that is actually real.
This moment right now. This one.
This moment is the only reality there is.
Dare to Be Present™ is both exactly what it says – dare to be here now – and it is also a service provided to you, serving your ability to be in the eternal now in all of your life; serving your ability to be with your self – your self that always shows up, your self that is unavoidable; serving your ability to own the Consciousness that is your truest self. In presence, Dare to Be Present sessions support you to know yourself, to be at peace with yourself, to be able to live fully in the eternal now – the only reality there is.

The nature of the Mind is that it can codify anything. This is its gift and also its trap.
It can codify enlightenment, it can codify love, light & bliss, it can even codify being & presence.
It puts a label on everything. It organizes it. It says it knows it. This is its gift and its trap.
The trap is that people get hopelessly lost in it and think the label IS the thing. But the label is NEVER the thing.
We must shake free from that falsehood. Those who are involved with new-age beliefs, the yoga movement, spiritual practices, and other forms meant to imply "waking up" need be especially wary of how the Mind can codify ANYTHING and that even all of those can be yet another trap, constraining belief system, or dogma keeping One away from the Truth, hooked into yet another mental matrix divorced from the freshness of ever-present reality.
The Truth is always present, stark naked, rigorously honest, and completely free.
There is no entry point. The only entry point is whatever Your Mind needs to recognize it is not itself. For You Are Consciousness.
Dare to Be Present.
In Ojai this Wednesday 6-7pm ( https://www.facebook.com/events/1482211332035497/ ) and everywhere in the world via private sessions ( http://www.DareToBePresent.com ).
In relentless devotion to the brilliant truth that is always now,

clean energy please
You ARE connected to All-That-Is.
This is evidenced by the simple fact of your breathing which is so very intimately connected with all the Life of the Earth.
It is ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL that we cultivate peace with oneself.
Each person who cultivates peace with himself is taking us, collectively, farther away from the armageddon that nuclear weapons (for one instance) threaten.
We cannot leave the matter of Vital Peace to a faulty system of corruptible leadership with extremely questionable infrastructure.
We must begin - or continue - right now, cultivating peace with oneself, both for the sake of inner sanity and for the sake of all of Life on Earth.

The Infinite Present is holding you infinitely.
It cannot stop holding you.
It is always holding you.
I do not know why the world is as it is.
I do not know why human suffering is pervasive.
I do not know why this culture is lost in the mind,
Disregarding the body, and alienated from the heart.
I would like to know why, but I don’t.
The Love is always holding you.
It is holding you when you don’t feel it.
It is holding you when you are tired of it all.
It is holding you when you’ve had enough.
It is even holding you when you don’t see a way out.
The reason it is a /dare/ to be present is because
So much of what we’re in is insisting that we /not/ be present.
Even so much of the new-age movement is still in that insistence
To move away from the open mystery of what is.
And yet The Present always insists more strongly.
Insists that you notice it, and enter into it, and return to it.
I dare you to be present.
Because anything that is real is in The Now.
Any possibility of transformation is in The Now.
Any possibility of peace with oneself is in The Now.
If you are present, sooner or later you will confront yourself.
You will confront anything about yourself you are not comfortable with.
That is okay. The wholeness of The Now supports that.
And there will always be This Love holding you.
The Love that is the mystery of life.
The Love that is the mystery of consciousness.
The Love that never stops loving you.
The Endless Love that sometimes has no name or face,
Yet nonetheless remains, remains, remains.

beginner's mind is pure mind
are you willing to release all of your chains and not pick up new ones?
to walk with empty hands because empty hands can
feel, hold, release, dance, express.
the chains are mental chains
freedom is possible
freedom is love
devotion to that which does not die

....so one may wish to re-write those core beliefs.......
when you've had enough of fantasy,
you can dare to be here now.
when you've had enough of pretend,
you can embrace what is.
when you've had enough of false pretense,
you can allow yourself to be as you are.
when you've had enough of the endless rat race,
you can come back home to the love that never dies.
when you can't stand to be fake anymore,
you can let yourself be, breathe, feel, release...
to Dare to Be Present
looks like nothing and yet it is everything.
there may not be support around you for that.
we are in a world that has somehow alienated itself
from the Presence that Nature gives,
the Presence the animals are always in,
the Presence that children have not lost yet.
to Dare to Be Present is not a promise of nirvana,
although Presence is certainly where nirvana lives.
to Dare to Be Present is not a promise of everlasting bliss,
although, if there is such a thing, it surely belongs to The Eternal Now.
to Dare to Be Present is to dare to be real.
I am here to support you in this.
Why? Because it is who I am, and because
There is nothing more meaningful I can find to offer You.
