Global Unity | What is The Venus Project and a Resource Based Economy?

Resourcesim is the belief or ideology that all of the Earth's resources are the common inheritance of all the world's people and should be shared equally for the benefit of all the Earth's inhabitants. ____________________________  I personally, along with my organization The Vegan Projet stands behind and fully endorses  The Venus Project  and the  Resource Based Economy   a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization that is working on designing, testing, and implementing a new socio-economic system called a Global Resource Based Economy . --  Michael Corthell   Accepting that humanity's problems are global in nature, Resource Based Economy concept is a bold proposal that seeks to provide a higher quality of life for all, through the intelligent management of Earth's resources.  What is required is the redesign of our culture to operate within the carrying capacity of the Earth’s resources and in accordance with the wellbeing of people and protection of the environment.

There is ONE All

  Remember that all is One and One is in all. And what you do to your neighbor, your friend, or your enemy, is a reflection of what you think of yourself and the Universe itself. 

Cosmic Soup

 by Michael Corthell A few years ago when I was single, it was my habit of just opening a can of Progresso soup for supper. I did this far too often out of laziness. But on this night it kinda sorta paid off because it gave me some cosmic insight. A night or two before I had watched a documentary on the Universe . Much of the film had to do with the sheer scale of it and all the different galaxies and structures within those galaxies - black holes, nebula star incubators, and such.  In the time after and before I was preparing my soup supper, I was thinking a lot about what I had learned in watching the documentary. My first question was; '' Is the Universe one thing ?'' And the second one, ''Do the laws of physics and chemistry apply uniformly, everywhere in the Universe?'' And lastly, ''Are there life-forms spread uniformly throughout the Universe?''   So, I'm stirring my soup. The burner's on low so as not to burn the feast. I

Good Goals: Dreams with Deadlines

If you want to be happy, and fulfilled, choose goals that command your thoughts, liberate your energy and inspires your hope! by Michael Corthell Do you like setting goals? Many people set a goals for themselves and rarely achieve them because the goals are either too unrealistic or the time-line for reaching them is too short or there are too many goals in play at one time. Top-level athletes, successful business-people and achievers in all fields all set goals . Setting goals gives you long-term vision and short-term motivation. It focuses your acquisition of knowledge, and helps you to organize your time and your resources so that you can make the very most of your life. ''A Goal is a dream with a deadline.'' —Napoleon Hill Trying to ignore needed goals and objectives is like ignoring a hungry cat or crying baby. It just shouldn't be done. They both have to be fed and nurtured. There is a 'smart' way to go about it. Specific, M

The Vegan Society: Why Be Vegan?

by The Vegan Society Why Go Vegan? For the animals Preventing the exploitation of animals is not the only reason for becoming vegan, but for many, it remains the key factor in their decision to go vegan and stay vegan. Having emotional attachments with animals may form part of that reason, while many believe that all sentient creatures have a right to life and freedom. Specifics aside, avoiding animal products is one of the most obvious ways you can take a stand against animal cruelty and animal exploitation everywhere. A more detailed overview on why being vegan demonstrates true compassion for animals can be found here .  For your health Well-planned vegan diets follow healthy eating guidelines and contain all the nutrients that our bodies need. Both the British Dietetic Association and the American Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics recognize that they are suitable for every age and stage of life. Some research has linked vegan diets with lower blood pressure and cholesterol, and

HEALTHY CHILDREN: Positive Family Dynamics

by Michael Corthell The traditional definition of a 'normal family' is a married mother and father and their biological children living together. It may also include the previous generation. (picture  The Waltons ). But what is 'family' in the Western world today, especially in America (or any part of the world)?  Do you think a new definition of family is starting to emerge in our society? Let's first look at why family is important. What purpose the family serves and what the dynamics are. ''The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each other's life.''   —Richard Bach A family unit is foundational, that is, it is the base unit of society and even greater than that, it is what defines human civilization itself. Let's look allegorically at civilization. View it as a complete human being. The family unit is then a cell in that body. Family is then is the original and basic cell of so

No Worries: Living in Day-Tight Compartments

by Michael Corthell How much time and energy do you spend worrying about tomorrow? Do you worry about what will happen next week? Or, what will happen next year? You can plan your life out, but you still need to manage the present. ''Our main business is not to see what lies dimly at a distance, but to do what lies clearly at hand.'' —Thomas Carlyle What worries you? The future? Today is a safe place.  It is a place to live securely to plan an even better tomorrow. How can you live in 'day-tight compartments' to turn the tide against worry and make yourself productive? Here are some of the basics: Love yourself. When we are worried about a big problem there are people who will support us and those who won't. Listen and feel the energy of those who support you. Reject the ones who don't.  Then give yourself a hug. Use positive affirmations and tell your subconscious mind all positives about yourself. Always keep your sense of h

  But there is danger in chronic global poverty... “This boy is Ignorance. This girl is Want. Beware them both, and all of their degree, but most of all beware this boy, for on his brow I see that written which is Doom, unless the writing be erased.”  — Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol.

Can You Really Buy Happiness??

by Michael Corthell [Short answer: Yes, by and through giving] Shining a light and talking about money management in any moral context such as creating wealth, controlling the weight of debt, and investment income can be like lighting a match next to a case of dynamite. Money is like any other tool— it can be used for good, to create something good, or used to destroy—the use depends on the mindset of the user. It is very easy to let a healthy interest in asset/money management become an unhealthy obsession with materialism. ''The love of money causes all kinds of evil. Some people have turned away from what we believe because they want to get more and more money. But they have caused themselves a lot of pain and sorrow.'' — 1 Timothy 6:10            Today we will explore the ways God wants us to view money as a means of exchange and investment, plus our attitude toward material goods. As with practically everything in life good management is all about b

Veganism is Not About “Food Ethics”

Veganism is Not About “Food Ethics”: Veganism is about Social Justice for All Animals, Including the Human Ones Veganism is not a social justice issue isolated from other social justice issues. Veganism shows the reality of how racism, sexism, classism, ableism, homophobia, speciesism, ecocide, etc are all connected. In other words the 'Golden Rule'. Join The Vegan Project
