Department of Heartland Security Recommends....

"Wise USA"

To Help Bring About Political Climate Change

"Instead of giving our leaders a piece of our minds, maybe we should try giving them a mind of our peace instead" ~ Swami Beyondandanda

In these times of political polarization and economic distress, we are launching the Department of Heartland Security to promote health, coherence, sanity and wisdom in the body politic. Prior to our official launch on January 11, 2009 we will be highlighting projects and programs that offer healing and enlightenment in the domains of Heart, Land and Security:

In the first such endorsement in the Heart domain, we are happy to present WiseUSA '08, a worldwide teleclass, meditation and ceremony to mobilize millions of people to "participate in subtle activism ... to call forth wise leadership in America.." Co-sponsored by and a host of global collaborators, the project will use leading-edge internet technologies to link millions of people in meditation and prayer in the lead up to the U.S. election to "call on Americans to use their deepest wisdom as they consider and cast their votes for President this November."
According to the WiseUSA press release, "During the teleconferences and
web-discussions, participants will learn about and apply 'subtle activism,' discuss what it means to live from a place of wisdom, and explore other ideas about what can be done to support the emergence of wisdom in American politics and daily life."

The program officially began on Wednesday, October 1st with a series of teleconferences and audio webcasts featuring spiritual teachers from around the world, and will culminate in a 13 day intensive program that runs from October 25th to November 6th. This interactive program will peak on November 2, 2008 in a Global Ceremony featuring meditation, prayer and music which will simultaneously bring together public gatherings in Washington D.C. San Jose, and other major cities. These locations will be linked by videoconference and the event will be broadcast live online to hundreds of groups and tens of thousands of individuals worldwide.

Here is the proposed focus for the meditation:

We, the people, the ancestors of our great, great grandchildren call forth the deepest wisdom and highest compassion from the heart and soul of America, for the benefit of the entire Earth community and the next seven generations. May wisdom prevail in the USA. May peace prevail on Earth.

I am happy to say that I will be participating as well, leading a one-hour teleclass on Heartland Security on Monday, October 27th from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. PCT. Other featured speakers include Marianne Williamson, Gabriel Cousens M.D., Alfredo Sfeir Younis, Dattatreya Siva Baba, David Spangler, Lynne Twist, Howard Martin, James O'Dea, Elizabeth Tobin, Arthur Collins, Joseph Giove, James Twyman, Corinne McLaughlin, Rev. Ellen Grace O'Brian, Max Simon, and more. You can find out more by going here, or by contacting David Nicol --, 510-525-9516 / 510-299-5698, or Joseph Giove --, 925 215 4017.

Do we have the power to initiate a true political climate change? Well, perhaps if we all blow in the same direction at the same time, we can stir the winds of change. It couldn't hurt to try. Let's give 'em a mind of our peace!

Remember, we are the leaders we have been waiting for ... and we may very well be the answer to our own prayers!

Heartfully yours,

Steve Bhaerman and the Heartland Matrix team.
