Want to help change the world?

The Internet Begging Experiment is an awesome page that has just launched today. The goal is to get 1 million people to each donate $1. Once that goal is reached, half the money will be donated to a selected charity.

This is partially your average internet begging site, but with a very huge twist. Not only will half the money be donated, but any donations above and beyond the $1 million goal will be used to fund a non-profit organization that will be formed to assist individuals in the midst of financial crisis. If you've ever gotten a disconnect notice from your electric company, or needed new tires for your car, this non-profit will be able to help in situations such as those.

The key to this experiment is to reach a vast amount of people. There are buttons and links on the site to submit to Digg, Facebook, Twitter and more. You can even email the link to your friends to check out. Also, don't forget to leave your vote in the poll for your favorite charitable organization.

Another great thing that the IBE (Internet Begging Experiment) is offering is free advertising. For your donation, you can submit your 125x50 logo for display on the advertising page.

So get going. Visit the Internet Begging Experiment and donate your dollar. Then tell EVERYONE you know. This is so HUGE and has great potential to help change the world.

Real Life Statistic on How People Are

I saw something interesting yesterday. I was engaged in a 'you buy, I'll fly' scenario that sent me to the local McDonald's. Apparently McDonald's didn't know it was breakfast time so my drive-thru order was delayed. I was sent to park in the 'we didn't know you'd come and order from us, so we had to go and raid the chicken coop for some eggs (are they even real eggs?), so you'll have to wait a while for us to take care of it' assigned parking spot. While I sat there, for nearly 15 minutes, I was blessed with an interesting observation.

Some Canadian Geese were trying to cross a busy 4 lane highway. There is a median between each of the double lanes, so at least they had only to pass two lanes and then they were safe for a moment. There were about 30 Canadian Geese trying to get across this road. As they kept starting across and then being forced to retreat, I saw approximately 20 cars pass. Of these 20 cars, only one was a complete jackass, driving quickly and as closely as possible, honking his horn radically, with absolutely no interest in whether or not he hit a goose. Thankfully he did not, and he at least slowed down some, probably so he wouldn't dent his car.

Interestingly, of these 20 cars, there was also only the last one that stopped several yards back, and waited patiently for all the geese to walk across the entire highway to safety.

The remaining 18 cars drove, while slowing down or stopping, as close to the geese as possible, no matter which direction the geese decided to run, and made a way with their cars to 'get through' and go on their merry ways.

What does this mean? I'd say, based on my observation, that only about 5% of the people in the world are complete jackasses. People who don't care one way or the other whether they run you down with their vehicles, as long as they get where they are going. Let's face it, if you can harm an animal, or come close to it without a second thought, you certainly don't care for your brothers and sisters on this planet either.

Only another 5% are really concerned with humanity and other sorts of life enough to take moments out of their hectic lives to really stop and pay attention. These are likely the peace bringers and volunteers of services and shelter to people and animals in need.

That leaves 90% of the population completely clueless. At least the jackasses know that they don't care. Surely if you asked one he'd be completely up front with you. Now don't get me wrong, 95% of the people in the cars didn't want to harm anything or anyone. They were being peaceful in their own ways, but those 18 people couldn't just stop their cars for 15 seconds while the beautiful geese waddled their ways across the road. They either had no time, or so they thought, no interest in how cool these geese were, or no interest in helping our fellow life on this planet to 'git er done.'

So, this is to you 90 percenters. WAKE UP! 15 seconds of your time to help 30 geese get safely across a road is not going to kill you, nor is it going to waste any of your precious day. You are likely racing off to a job you hate anyway, so stopping for 15 seconds to watch some birds might have given you a moment to regroup and notice something out of the ordinary from your mundane life.

Ok, this is quickly getting ugly and that wasn't my intention. I just found those self-observed statistics to be worth mentioning. The 5 percenters on the bright side, keep it up. Your efforts ARE contagious and will be observed and repeated. Don't give up and don't stop being peace and joy and love.

The jackasses of the world won't even bother reading this, use to make a comment there.

This Week's Energy for Zany Zodiacs

Sometimes, Zany Zodiacs weekly horoscopes work out to be less of a fortune-telling horoscope, and more of a perfect bit of inspirational advice for the week. This is one of those weeks.

There's a lot of funky energy swirling around for the upcoming week. Maybe it's because in my location, this week starts off with a full moon. Things are shifting and changing and if you're on course, and looking for this, you will notice. The time is here, now, presenting each of us an opportunity to better our personal role in humanity, which in turn strengthens our communities and our planet. Humanity is evolving. If you are on the forefront of this evolution, bless you. I've said this before, but it feels like we are the fish who grew legs and ran off when the pond dried up. It's not easy to grow legs where you had none before.

But, that species of fish went on to continue its existence in an entirely new world, in an entirely different way. If you're still focused on the negativity, the violence, and the economic woes, it's time to look the other way. I'm not suggesting it be ignored, but I AM suggesting you turn AWAY 'from the dark side' and into the light. Three's a lot going on over here and it's a lot more fun!

Many of us are being faced with some of our toughest times right now. Instead of grieving or being upset, we should rejoice. We are being tested for growth and advancement of humanity. Roll with it, become peace, become, yourself, whatever it is that you most desire. This creates a life of less resistance and more peace.

As for this week's horoscopes, yours will be most pertinent, but you might find knowledge or inspiration in them all. Personally, my life touches on each of these and guides me to share these points with you all. I wish you a wonderful and prosperous week. If you need any additional guidance or insight, please feel free to contact me.

The Science of Getting Rich

***Update! I've just found a site where you can get a FREE copy of The Science of Getting Rich... Click Here

Ever since The Secret came out, I have been reading, watching and otherwise thinking about everything and anything I can find to put the Law of Attraction into use. After all this time, I have finally discovered a clear and concise plan for finally getting there. The Science of Getting Rich

This book, The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace D. Wattles, gives you a definite plan for creating abundance and getting rich. If you're like me, you've read everything and may be a little confused by all the 'ways' about using the Law of Attraction and gaining riches, abundance and prosperity.

Let me break it down for you. After all my reading and watching and listening, and after reading this book, there are two things that you need to do. THINK and PRACTICE THINKING SOME MORE. You must think about what you really want and keep it in your mind as often as possible. Live it. Become it. Breathe it. Feel it. Don't concern yourself with troubles in your own life, or troubles in other people's lives. Stay as far away from the thought of anything negative as you possibly can. Be grateful for ALL the good things in your life, even if there are only two good things. THINK about where you would like to go and how you would like to live your life, and then PRACTICE THINKING SOME MORE about where you would like to go and how you would like to live your life. The reason for practice is to embed these thoughts of riches and wealth into your subconscious. At that point it becomes a habitual way of thinking and your regular racing mind can be freed up to create MORE ways of getting rich.

You've probably heard of the thought consciousness and that's what I mean. The idea that you can use thought to help create, or bring about into your existence, anything you purpose and point that thought toward. That's the key. Nothing else. No begging. No wallowing. Only thoughts directed toward that which you desire, as if you already had it.

For me, getting to this point entails one more exercise in practice. Perhaps you'll benefit from this as well. Take a look around at your surroundings. Do they reflect surroundings of somewhere a rich person would make his or her home? I'm not talking about expensive furniture or designer clothing, if you can't afford it at this point. If you're flat broke and in or near poverty, this is how you begin. You look around at what you DO have and make the most of it. Be grateful for those things you have. Straighten them out, repair broken things or remove them from your sight. Get up in the morning, take a shower, put on some comfortable but NICE clothes...don't sit around all day in sweatpants with holes. Just don't do it. Fix your hair, clean your nails, shave your legs, ladies! ACT LIKE YOU'VE ALREADY POSSESSED THAT WHICH YOU DESIRE.

Now I found this one a bit challenging. I made it up myself, but it's probably already an exercise in and amongst all the talk about this topic of The Science of Getting Rich and the Law of Attraction. Rather than make a list of all the things that you would buy or own if you had all the money in the world, or make a list of all the things you would do with that money, make a list of points in your average day.


Start with when you get out of bed in the morning. Right now you probably roll out of bed, get a cup of coffee and a cigarette, put on the TV, grab the newspaper and make yourself a Pop Tart. If I could type that sound the X makes on Family Feud, I would type it right now. XXXXXXX Back up!

Think about it for a minute. What would you do with your days if you had all the money you ever wanted...if you were RICH?! What would your bedroom look like? How would your habits change? What plans would you make for the day? What shopping would you do? Are you waiting, right now, for money to come before you dress more nicely, or fix your hair, or clean up your house? Have you sort of given up until it comes? It won't ever come this way.

Read this book, The Science of Getting Rich. Go to the library and get it if you have to...that's what I did. After your eyes open and you realize how simple this is, start to think about how your life would change and begin making the changes that you can RIGHT NOW. You'll begin to attract the wealth that comes along with that positive thought consciousness. GOOD LUCK AND WRITE ME WITH YOUR PROGRESS! I'd love to know that I'm making a difference for someone else in the world!!

Thanks and let's all allow ourselves to be blessed!
