read this article by Tom Montalk, I think it is interesting:
Earth is traveling away from the Milky Way, what does this mean?
“Responsibilities gravitate to the person who can shoulder them.”

Your action for today is to identify your top three responsibilities and evaluate how you are shouldering them.
“The best and most beautiful things can’t be seen or touched – they must be felt with the heart.”
Author and Educator, Helen Keller
Your action for today is to write down three things in your life that you’re thankful for.
I want you to take a few moments to imagine something you really want to happen and then use your imagination to follow it through in your mind’s eye. What is it you are dreaming about? Who is involved? How does it play out? Now let’s think about the direction your imagination took. Did you focus on the positive aspects of your dream or did you end up thinking about the things that could go wrong?
In addition to visualizing, other things can help reinforce the positive outcome you desire. For example, you could keep a daily journal and write what you desire to have happen in your life. This is a very good way to keep your focus. Another technique is to make a picture page with images of what you want, along with good things that are part of your dream. You can cut out photos from magazines or draw pictures. When your little poster is completed, put your page in a place where you will see it frequently. Just seeing these visual suggestions regularly will stimulate your imagination.

“Truth has all the benefits of sham without the disadvantages.”
Your action for today is to notice if you feel like telling “white lies” to avoid telling the truth. If you do, choose to tell the truth instead.
I’m writing to tell you that nominations for Cosmopolitan’s Ultimate Women of the Year Awards 2013 are now open.
For the eighth year running, the awards will be honouring women (and men!) from across the country for their incredible achievements.
Last year’s winners included Ruth Rogers and Natasha Devon, who promoted their Body Confidence Charity, Body Gossip, through their win, Polly Brooks, whose charity supports burns victims, and Melanie Burgess, who was nominated for the help she gave her sisters after they were orphaned and says, “It was overwhelming and unexpected to be nominated, and so special to win.”
The categories are open, meaning that if you know of any exceptional men or women who deserve Cosmopolitan’s top accolade – whatever area they excel in – they can be nominated. It could be someone you know personally, someone exceptional working with or for you, or just someone you’ve read about. You can even nominate yourself.
There is no age limit, and we are particularly keen to hear about people who have had a real impact on young women’s lives, either here or abroad.
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your phone number, the name, age, and contact details of your nominee (if you have them), plus an explanation of why they deserve to win and, or go to www.cosmopolitan.co.uk/ultimatewomen to nominate via our website.
In the meantime, if you have any queries at all, please contact our Deputy Features Editor at email@example.com.
This year, we’re expecting the awards to generate even more press interest than ever before – and last year, the response was big – so please nominate your women and men of the year before 16th August.

A Vision for Voting for Peace
Today’s Vision is a bit different, but it is completely in line with the VAP. It comes from Diana Endresen from Seattle, WA. Diana says:
As I was reading about Linda’s Vision of Departments of Peace, I recalled a science fiction short story I read sometime in the mid-to-late 1960’s.
I don’t recall the title of the short story nor the author, but the idea was that people had machines in their homes that were connected and they would “vote” as to how their tax dollars were to be spent – like $30 to foreign missions, $50 to the State Department, $75 to Department of Education, etc. The result was that fewer and fewer people sent money to the Pentagon and more and more people sent money to the Department of Peace, so at the end of the story, the Department of Peace was the largest department of the government. Cool, eh? I recall at the time the idea of a Department of Peace really interested me. I didn’t pay much attention to the machines in the home, no frame of reference, but the Internet could be playing that role.
Love and peace your way, thank you for your work.
Thanks to you, too, Diana!
