Today is a sad day.

I found out that Robert Jordan died on Sunday.  I’m kinda selfish.  My first thought was, “I hope they publish the last book”.

Turns out, it’s most likely going to happen so that’s good.  It really sucks because he was such a great person.  When things like this happen, you always ask, “Why do bad things happen to good people?”

At least we’ll find out what’s going to happen, but still, he had plans for a whole new series.  I wonder if they’ll release the plans?

Chelsea and I are of the opinion that great writers that write up a whole different world, are kinda channeling that reality, not creating it.  This being the case, I hope he gets to spend a lifetime in the world that he shared with us.  It would only be fitting.

Robert Jordan.  You’ll be missed.

Hopi Elders Speak.

Filed under: Life,Spirituality — ecogeek @ 1:26 am

This is The Hour…

“You have been telling the people that this is the Eleventh Hour.
Now you must go back and tell the people that this is the Hour.
And there are things to be considered:

Where are you living?
What are you doing?
What are your relationships? Are you in right relation?
Where is your water? Know your garden.
It is time to speak your Truth.
Create your community. Be good to each other.
And do not look outside yourself for the leader.
This could be a good time!

There is a river flowing now very fast.
It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid.
They will try to hold on to the shore.
They will feel they are being torn apart, and they will suffer greatly.

Know the river has its destination.
The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river
Keep our eyes open and our heads above the water.
See who is in there with you
And celebrate.

At this time in history we are to take nothing personally.
Least of all, ourselves.
For the moment that we do, our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt.

The time of the lone wolf is over. Gather yourselves!
Banish the word “struggle” from your attitude and your vocabulary.
All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.

We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.” 

The Elders / Oraibi, Arizona / Hopi Nation

Free Album

Filed under: Links — ecogeek @ 2:33 pm

Free music!  ocremix.org has released an album that is entirely free.  It’s called Final Fantasy VII Voices in the Lifestream.

Get it here.

OC Remix is a site where people take old game music and remix it.  Be warned if you go there, you may have the Zelda tune stuck in your head for days.  🙂

Edwards, if no Gore.

Filed under: Life,Links,Politics — ecogeek @ 4:09 am

This speech has clinched it for me as of now. If gore doesn’t run, I’m Edwards all the way. He’s the only one that has ideas, the only one that shows he’s not just pandering, and the only one that gets pissed.  You have to skip past the introductions to get to the speech.
