PRABHU is a Sanskrit word... it is the sweetest, most gentle way to say the name of the divine.

Music comes closest to meditation.
Just beyond music is meditation: one step more and you are in meditation.
And music is the most beautiful door.
Listen to music so totally that the listener disappears in the listening...
- Osho

PRABHUMUSIC.COM features the music of Deva Premal and Miten and many other musicians also inspired by meditation and the rich creativity that spirals out from the inner journey.

Tarzan of the Internet

with very useful
Ape-English Dictionary

Apes have a language that they taught to Tarzan
when he was a child. That is what Edgar Rice Burroughs
says, and he should know.
Many of the terms are translatable into English and are
used in the Tarzan books.

is een Belgische ontwikkelingsorganisatie die zich inzet voor Oost Europa. Balkanactie is als VZW erkend door de Belgische overheid, en mag zich daardoor een erkend NGO (niet gouvernementele organisatie) noemen.

Balkanactie zet zich in voor hulpbehoevenden in Oost Europa, zonder onderscheid te maken naar afkomst, nationaliteit, sociale klasse, geslacht, religie, politieke overtuiging of andere kenmerken. In haar werking wil Balkanactie bijdragen aan contacten tussen de Europese volkeren en aan een beter begrip bij de Belgische bevolking van de geschiedenis, toekomst en actualiteit van de Oosteuropese landen.

Balkanactie steunt op een vrijwilligersbeweging, met vrijwilligersgroepen of antennes verspreid over Vlaanderen, en vrijwilligers binnen organisaties, lokale besturen, scholen en instellingen die zich inzetten in het kader van de projecten op het terrein en in België. De vrijwilligersgroepen van Balkanactie staan open voor iedereen die de fundamentele rechten van de mens en de basisprincipes van de organisatie respecteert.

the Culture Jammers Network

We are a global network of artists, activists, writers, pranksters, students, educators and entrepreneurs who want to advance the new social activist movement of the information age. Our aim is to topple existing power structures and forge a major shift in the way we will live in the 21st century. We believe culture jamming can be to our era what civil rights was to the '60s, what feminism was to the '70s, what environmental activism was to the '80s. It will alter the way we live and think. It will change the way information flows, the way institutions wield power, the way TV stations are run, the way the food, fashion, automobile, sports, music and culture industries set their agendas. Above all, it will change the way meaning is produced in our society. links to this post (0) comments

Models, Tools, and Ideas for Building a Better Future

WorldChanging.com works from a simple premise: that the tools, models and ideas for building a better future lie all around us. That plenty of people are working on tools for change, but the fields in which they work remain unconnected. That the motive, means and opportunity for profound positive change are already present. That another world is not just possible, it's here. We only need to put the pieces together.

Informed by that premise, we do our best to bring you links to (and analysis of) those tools, models and ideas in a timely and concise manner. We don't do negative reviews – why waste your time with what doesn't work? We don't offer critiques or exposes, except to the extent that such information may be necessary for the general reader to apprehend the usefulness of a particular tool or resource. We don't generally offer links to resources which are about problems and not solutions, unless the resource is so insightful that its very existence is a step towards a solution. We pay special attention to tools, ideas and models that may have been overlooked in the mass media. We make a point of showing ways in which seemingly unconnected resources link together to form a toolkit for changing the world.

Every link we post is informed by technology, but the new possibilities we cover aren't just high-tech. Sure, we all need to understand the uses (and dangers) of advances like biotechnology, the Internet, ubiquitous computing, artificial intelligences, "open source" software and nano-materials. But we also need to know how best to collaborate, how to build coalitions and movements, how to grow communities, how to make our businesses live up to their highest potential and how to make the promise of democracy into a reality. We need to understand techniques as well as technologies, ideas as well as innovations. How we work together is as important as the tools we use.

Therefore, we focus on resources that help people collaborate and cooperate, for we believe that collaborative technologies and cooperative models the keys to working together more effectively, and that working together is the revolution that is changing the world.

For the same reason, we have a clear bias towards democracy, human rights and civic freedoms, for we believe that, however imperfect, these are the best guidance mechanisms we know of for charting a better course.

We also know that this is a global era, with a global culture, and that all of us now have a duty of planetary citizenship. Therefore, though (or perhaps because) we expect most of our readers to be North Americans, we're a global crew, and we do our best to provide resources for understanding other cultures, for intelligent travel to other lands, for productive parsing of the actions of international institutions, and make a special effort to find resources and allies from other parts of the world.

Finally, and perhaps most importantly, this is a conversation, not a sermon. We encourage not just feedback, but active participation, and, yes, challenge. Got a great idea for a resource we've missed? Let us know – better yet, write your own recommendation and send it to us. Think we're off-base with a recommendation we've made? Let us know that, too, and what resource you think we should have covered instead. Changing the world is a team sport.

How can you play?

You can let us know what you think by commenting on specific recommendations. Every one of our recommendations includes a comment field at the bottom. We read 'em. So do others. Speak out and share what you know.

You can respond to individual authors by emailing us at the addresses found in our bios.

You can suggest a resource for us to cover by mailing suggestions@worldchanging.com.

You can write a recommendation yourself. If it works for us, we'll run it, with your byline. We don't pay (we don't even pay ourselves), but the karmic rewards are huge.

You can let others know about worldchanging. Got a blog? We'd love a link. Have friends who might find reading us worthwhile? Email 'em and let 'em know. Spreading the word is part of the work.

Thanks, y'all!
