We are all ONE ! (part 2)
To fully comprehend this, i would like to share some more thoughts, as well as projects to join. Each of us 7 billion facets of the ONE has a part of the solution. Via Internet and personal contacts, we will find ways to contribute to the whole. Have a go!
As we entered the new Millennium, new energies surfaced the earthly realities. Our planet seems in a state of upheaval. The question remains: What do we perceive? And what do we want to? If we believe in disaster, sure enough disaster will happen. A better option is to strive for unity, for creative inspiration to address the challenges ahead, for a glorious now.
Many connections and networks / initiatives presented throughout this site were established or referred to first when i attended a meeting in the USA to celebrate the 500th day before the year 2000.
On 19th August 1998, the 'Countdown-Day500 to the third Millennium' happened in Klamath Falls OR (USA),
Via e-mail lists and visiting websites i gradually got in contact with various individuals and groups who endeavoured to hold a positive vision for the years to come. It culminated in a real meeting on Aug 18-20 1998 to celebrate Countdown-Day 500 in Klamath Falls, Oregon (USA). There i have met many 'new' friends and shared plans to organize Day 100 (23rd Sept, which was also my 47th birthday...) here in the Netherlands / Amsterdam - as a step-up to the huge celebrations on 1st January 2000 or proposedly year Zero* which could symbolize the newly re-membered human unity.----------------------------------------------------------

A co-organizer of the Countdown Gathering was Hillel Schwartz, affiliated then with the Millennium Institute, Arlington VA, see http://www.millenniumworld.org He was in Amsterdam in November 1999, and i did an interview with him on Kleurnet, a local TV station, about Millennium opportunities/challenges/insights drawn on his observations of historic trends.
The author Linda Grover who co-hosted the Day500 Gathering wrote a novel with the title 'Tree Island'. She outlines in it how the whole of humanity could prepare for a peaceful new Millennium, beginning with a meal for everyone.

In 1998, i created an Online Forum on Delphi.
It was called "ParadiseNow". With the message board, you can view discussion topics quickly in the left-hand column and read up to 20 messages at a time. You can even attach files (pictures and sounds) directly to messages. Options include real-time Chat, announcements, and custom web pages.
Use the personalized "My Delphi" feature at http://forums.delphiforums.com/my-delphi to keep track of new messages in forums. In order to provide personalized services and access control, you'll need to go through a quick registration if you've never used Delphi before. It only takes a minute and it's free! (Personal note: i experienced so far that Delphi is cautious with the submitted information.)
