Finding strength in community

Our televisions are filled with shows about psychics, prophets and mystics. Do we realize that these are about real people or think them only as fictitious stories? When will we learn to utilize the talents of these people?

I am a mystic intuitive, foreseer of many future events. [I am the] inventor of glow-in-the dark clothing; producer of fashion shows in Miami and Manhattan; inventor of a safety product that could revolutionize the economy in the United States, using the profits to heal the disease and decay in society. I am a social entrepreneur who grew up in the town that Hershey built. I know difference that one person can make. Hershey’s quote: “Business is a matter of Human Service.”

As predicted in many ancient spiritual texts, the times ahead of us will be challenging with the Earth changes that are becoming more evident every day. [We are] not to see these events through fear, but [through] understanding that the Earth has changed forms many times since its formation and [by] capitalizing on the strength in our community—that is important for our survival.

Having walked in many shoes, the only difference that I have found is in the attitude of the people. Living by Divine in Bliss is a lifestyle that I choose. Asheville has now been documented to be a town of Bliss. There are many Light workers and healers that reside here, ready to share their gifts with the rest of the world.

Having the ability and experience of organizing charity events, I know that I cannot do it alone, but we can do it together. The World Record Community Pot Luck Dinner has been registered with The Guinness Book of World Records. Press releases will be sent out to international news media. It is true there will be swarms of people spending retail dollars, but the benefits to our community far outweigh the bad. We can be that beacon of light in a cruel, dark world, setting the example of what community means by coming together for one day and breaking bread for peace. This event is scheduled for May 4, 2008. It is still in the planning stage. Sponsorship and volunteers are needed to make it a success.

My proposal to Asheville is to embrace this opportunity to have the spotlight of the world look in. To ride the winds of change as the forefathers of this land before the white man came. Using our rights stated in the Declaration of Independence, and in our life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, so help us, God!

    Why do we need the”spotlight of the world”?
    Let those who are “drawn” to Asheville find their own way. Perhaps I’m “backwards”. I spent my early youth in Brevard myself and have lived in the Asheville area for over 25 years. The development in the last ten years is insane. Lets slow down a bit.

    Yes travelah, and I bet you really liked that “Business is a matter of Human Service” quote! Travelah the anti humanist. Here to pour water on your idealistic dreams. Great idea Lisa. Pay no attention to the small town/small minded travelahs of the world!

    There is always a light in the dark, glo for it!

    The Community Pot Luck Dinner will be held in Brevard, NC on May 4, 2008.

    This will be the begining of the 1st Sunday Community Pot Luck Dinner.

    Spotlight shinning out to the World as an example of Community coming together to heal it’s self.

    Before you scoff the town that Hershey built check out the extent of one man’s Quest. See who the richest orphans in the World are.

    Business Is a Matter of Human Service! Most Corporations today need to start changing their ways.

    If we want to leave a brighter future for our children.

    I embrace the idea of community potluck dinners.
    We’ve been having them around here for years. I have watched Asheville grow and be bulldozed. I’ve seen people come and go and the mountains raped and the real estate prices rise. Why do we need the “spotlight of the world”? I say again.
    Let those who are “drawn” to Asheville find their own way. The development in the last ten years is insane. Lets slow down a bit. Geez, do we have to turn a potluck dinner and a life of service into a corporation? Peace.

  7. If your point of view is seen as wanting to make simple into Corporate than the answer is No.

    I left Corporate behind. Greed is what raped the mountains. I wish to save the mountains as the sacred ground they are.

    There are leaders and there are followers. Why not show others Towns and Cities how we can come together to solve problems peaceably? As a role model for their town.

    GloLady TV‘s goal is to find solutions to our problems in today’s Society.

    GloLady TV is taped live every Friday night from 6:30-7:30 PM at URTV. Anyone is more than welcome to join us for a round table discussion.
