December 2014/January 2015: Consequence and Beginnings (Read the Full Issue)
Welcome to the December 2014/January 2015 edition of Parvati Magazine!
This special New Year’s edition is a double issue on the themes Consequence and Beginnings. These themes are fitting as we look back at what we have learned from 2014 and towards the newness of 2015.
It has been an exceptionally busy fall as we prepare the launch of a new website for early 2015, complete with an online TV channel. (The site looks amazing and I can’t wait to share it with you!)
In the midst of this, the unexpected happened, which gave birth to a whole new project. When I learned recently that the Canadian government has given clearance for oil companies to bomb the seabed of the Arctic Ocean, I felt profoundly shaken in the depth of my being. I knew that the consequence of these blasts would be harm and death to the magnificent whales and sea creatures.
In response, I initiated a movement and reached out to friends who share the concern to start a not-for-profit organization, parvati.org, a company that “will work to support a healthy environment and healthy people so that we have a healthy world.” Our first campaign is to stop seismic bombing in the Arctic Ocean and ensure that the ocean and its inhabitants are protected. Time is of the essence, as the seismic work is scheduled to begin there this spring.
If you would like to help in this effort, please email me personally at firstname.lastname@example.org. Specifically we are looking for those who can research the companies involved and those who can support marketing the campaigns.
Enjoy this month’s articles about the teachings of consequence and the potential in healthy beginnings.

Consequences – whether sweet or bitter – are gifts of grace from a compassionate universe helping us to grow and release old karmas and tendencies. When we soberly understand the consequences of our thoughts, words and actions, we naturally make choices that do not create harm.
As such, consequence becomes a springboard to a new beginning. Like an addict hitting bottom, we become ready to do things differently from how we have done, because we finally understand through consequence that the old habits will just never work for us.
The consequence of the seismic bombing of the Arctic Ocean seabed is that innocent sea creatures die, seafront societies are disrupted, and our ocean’s health, that is central to the health of humanity, continues to weaken. We must find a new way forward to fuel our economy, beyond fossil fuels. This begins by saying “no” to the old ways we know don’t work.
If you would like to help stop seismic bombing in the Arctic Ocean, please join our group of volunteers who are working for parvati.org. Specifically, we are looking for those willing to do research on the companies involved and for people who can support marketing our campaigns. If interested, please email me personally at email@example.com.
In sober and humble beginnings, we can touch the infinite potential and grace of this moment and activate in service to the highest good of all. May it be so for you in 2015.
Love our world.
