”Banker to the Poor: Micro-Lending and the Battle Against World Poverty,” Part 2 of 2

Today, Grameen Bank has over nine million borrowers, mostly women, 97% women. And they own the bank; they take the money and start a business and continue to take the money, improve their lives. Bangladesh has done wonderful in terms of reducing poverty in the country. At the end of 1971, 85% of the people were under poverty. Today, that poverty line came down to 22%, so that’s a long journey that we took. Viewing philanthropy as an interim solution to poverty, Professor Yunus often reiterates what he calls a holistic social business model. In this model, individuals and groups not only extend economic avenues to the disadvantaged, but also enable their empowerment as members of society.

A Professor of Economics, Muhammad Yunus established the bank as a way of giving economic self-determination to some of the most underprivileged people in the world. His efforts have also inspired the formation of several other similarly modelled institutions throughout the world. Offering microfinance to the less privileged, it gives security and hope to millions. Muhammad Yunus’s experiment micro-lending, which bypassed the traditional institutions, was successful. He decided to repeat the model again and again, laying the groundwork for the formation of the Grameen.

”Living with The Himalayan Masters”: Spiritual Experiences of Swami Rama, Part 2 of 2

He said, “This will come according to your practice and experience.” Don’t hanker for all these so-called powers. Don’t do that. Human potentials are immense. If you study the life of great people, whenever they said, “It’s not we, it’s God (who) has done.” Why did they say that? It is done through them, why did they say that it is God (who) has done? Are they lying? Because if you did this and that it has been done by us, it will feed their ego. The greatest of all barriers in the path of enlightenment is ego.

Al-Hafiz Basheer Ahmad Masri: Islamic Concern for Animals

How animals’ role in nature cannot be understood without first acknowledging the relationship and responsibility of humans toward animals. In recent years, many important contributions made by modern naturalists have opened the doors to an improved human attitude toward animals. Let’s take a moment to reflect on Allah and the magnitude of Hiers marvelous creations. And scientific proof showing that animals communicate not only amongst themselves, but with humans as well, both to express themselves socially or to share biological needs. Animals, just like humans, have the right to peacefully access the resources of nature provided by Allah.

Mother Nature’s Secret: A Charming Vegan Tale by Marian Hailey-Moss, Part 1 of 6

Since I’ve been meditating, I’ve become vegan; of course, and much more aware of what happens to animals in the world. It’s like you have to do something with this knowledge; you want to tell people about it. So, I can’t dance it, can’t act it. So, I write it, and you learn as you go along. How I found the illustrator, I googled, children’s illustrators, and I saw Marc Chalvin and immediately I knew that was the one. He’s French, and English is not his first language, And I never met him, but we do all our things. So, all our communication is through the script.

”God Takes Care of Everything”: Spanish Version

"Xe Gong's Affection for Dragons" Once there was a man named Xe Gong, who had an affection for dragons. In his house, everything, including furniture, ornaments and clothing, were all decorated with patterns of dragons. One day, the Dragon King in Heaven was so touched that he decided to descend to Earth to let Xe Gong see him. Hi! How are you? Wah! Xe Gong fainted in fear. So, what he loved was not the "real" dragon, but only "false" dragons in the images.We all believe in Shakyamuni Buddha of 2,500 years ago, yet we cannot believe that a Buddha could manifest into different appearances and come to Earth to save sentient beings life after life. Is this not similar to Xe Gong's affection for dragons?

Living in a Mindful Universe: Interview with Dr. Eben Alexander & Ms. Karen Newell, Part 4 of 4

Once you realize the brain is not the producer of consciousness at all, you find that meditation can be an incredibly rich source of healing, of insight, of guidance, of connecting with souls, the departed loved ones. I use sacred acoustic tones to great effect of returning to my NDE and developing my relationship with beings, entities, and especially with that infinitely healing force of unconditional love, that God force at the Core of all that is. The most direct ascent towards oneness with that Divine power and accomplishing our soul journey in this incarnation is to manifest unconditional love for all fellow beings.

Living in a Mindful Universe: Interview with Dr. Eben Alexander & Ms. Karen Newell, Part 3 of 4

Essentially, we are one with the universe. Realize the connectedness of all life, that we’re really here to take care of each other and really build that in from the ground up so that our youngest children realize that the greatest value is helping others. There’s plenty of wealth in this would to go all around, but we need to know how to distribute that in a better fashion that is more serving to the original intent of every soul who incarnates. Surely this dream may soon be realized!

And the best analogy I can use is like on the oscillating edge of a black hole, where you oscillate between just the pure oneness of the divine, infinite loving force of the core of the universe, and the first separation from that oneness into the many different layers all the way down into the material world. What they really come back telling us is that we are here to love each other. We are here to take care of the least, the last, and the lost, and not to compete of resources, but in fact to manifest that love for others, showing kindness and compassion.
