Bloggers Unite For Hunger And Hope – Today, April 29th 2009

Wednesday, April 29th, 2009

Such an event as the Bloggers Unite For Hunger And Hope Can Never BE totally useless. But what is there to do, and what can be done to fight the hunger – except for writing about it you might ask. It all depends on your possibilities and on your consciousness.

Many of us are making a donation. Others are helping various organizations with their time and work for free. Others yet create and donate their works, or the income from these to organizations worldwide.

And I am a firm believer that a change of consciousness will be able to cease the hunger. There is enough production of food to feed all of us, but the “powers” are the once preventing it to be spread equally, and without the “usual gain” for them.
Whatever you choose to do in order to contribute your part in the fight against hunger, do it wholeheartedly and it will make you feel rich :).

My own contribution went to WFP – World Food Programme as I believe in the United Nations organization and how they make use of the available funds in these especially tough times with the soaring food prices .

And to close this post in the spirit of Hope I’d like to share this awesome video with you. This documentary: Playing For Change: Peace Through Music on Barry Goss and Heather Vale Goss’s blog, in which he wrote about the idea and work that inspired and started the movement of Award Winning Film Director Mark Johnson, and why Mark Johnson is his hero #2.

The Playing For Change Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to connecting the world by building music and art schools equipped with cameras and recording studios in communities around the world. Set the volume on and play it right now – it gave me goose bumps and some tears… as it is so very inspiring and heart touching – beautiful beyond words! And music is the uniting force for us people 😉

The Soul Age – Are you a Young, or an Old Soul?

Sunday, April 26th, 2009

This is a question that have kept me researching myself and others for quite some time. And the MichaelTeachings.com site has provided a few very usefull points in an otherwise useless for some research.

The soul ages categories described here are but very few – infant soul, baby soul, young soul, mature soul, old soul, and according to me there are varied nuances between the soul ages that are left out. Taking for example my own soul age, I could be classified as a mixture of a Mature – 65% to 70% and an Old Soul – 35% to 30%. And most of what I am – a Mature Soul, while there are some of the traits that are concerning the Old Soul age.

“Why is this important,” someone might ask. Well, it becomes important when one is seeking the answer as to “Why am I here on the Earth plane, and what is the point to it all?” And the question is usually posed by people who don’t know yet, what the purpose of their lives is.

Most of the Mature Souls are studying and going for degrees, just like I am doing with the future degree in Philosophy. And there are times that the Old Soul in me is rebelling, and questioning my decision for this philosophical degree, while proclaiming its futility. And it becomes even more important when Carol Mann presents the Soul Age under just two categories: Old and New Souls. The only two Soul Ages in her article is an overly simplistic description, and it does not give a real answer to the once in search of their own Soul Age. To put it simply – just like the cropped version of the original photo, that you can see here bellow.

...up and down...


While here is the original with all, or with most of the Soul Ages in it.

Susan Boyle became the Idol of the world with one bold performance. And I read about her in some of the Dutch newspapers daily. She is already a star, and on YouTube people wonder when will a CD of her become available as they will be ready to buy it! The video here is taken live at her home in Scotland, and the other one is of Cry Me a River, a recording from 1999. Simply amazing the voice Susan Boyle has, and we wish her all the luck and happiness she deserves…

Watch CBS Videos Online

May Susan’s wish become true!

Sunday, April 19th, 2009

On MyLifeTime.com I saw the video review, and read about the movie premiere tonight of the Natalee Holloway story, which is based on the book “Loving Natalee”, and written by her mother Beth Holloway.

Taty wrote here quite awhile ago about the Natalee Holloway case and P.R. de Vries, and I wanted to make sure that the readers of Totally Useless living in US will be able to watch it on April 19 at 8 pm et/9 pm pt. Airing on LMN.

An inspiring lesson about What’s Beauty Have to Do With It…

Tuesday, April 14th, 2009

Today I read a post on Tom Justin’s blog Your Inner Wizard that really did something to me. The video is a MUST and you should see it, trust me – you have to see it in order to comprehend what the title of this post is all about. And as Tom Justin is saying in his post: “…You are in for a few minutes of bliss and a lesson in basic humanity.”


This video is proving for me some very important facts in life:

1) Never stop believing in yourself – no matter how many have ridiculed you up till now.
2) Beauty is nice to have, or to be, however – if you are talented you could achieve your dream without being beautiful.
3) Dare to be bold, and to take any of the chances given to you.
