Dear friends...tonight is the 6 year anniversary of Paradigms! The first episode aired on WBKM on Sunday May 31, 2009. Tonight episode #182 will air! It has been an amazing experience. I have learned so much and had the privilege of speaking with hundreds of remarkable people doing great things. I have made some great friendships along the way too! Thank you WBKM - Eric and Tony, and thank you listeners and contributors! Tonight's episode, featuring a young woman just starting out on a singing career, and a man who rides his bike to raise money for kids...or last week's sax player who got into music via studying philosophy, or Freda and Toghestiy of Unist'ot'en Camp blocking oil and gas pipelines...on every episode people who embody the essence of Paradigms by daring to have visions of a viable future for life on Earth that includes humans. Thank you all for existing. Inspire and be inspired! Love, Baruch

It is International Women's Day...only one day??? OK...fine...it's better than nothing.
Dear women, the ones I know directly and the ones I don't:
Thank you Mom for giving birth to me! You didn't have to, you chose to. I'm glad you did.
To all the girls and women I have known...many of my best friends, sisters, teachers, lovers, priestesses...what would my life have been without you? Who would I have become? I can't imagine. I honor you.
To all the women of the world...whether you live in a society that explicitly honors you for who you are or one that requires you be hidden and disempowered, and everything in between...my hope my wish first is that the crime of rape become a distant memory for all of humanity.
Second my hope my wish is that humanity embrace a woman's right to choose when to bear a child.
Third my wish my hope is that men and women can continue healing the wounds that create obstacles to full partnership and co-creation of humanity. All of us who were not born women can learn from women. We can all learn from each other, and benefit by it.
We can honor all of the life on Earth everyday if we choose to!

O People of Earth, Hear My Plea!

Especially to the younger people, please put down your weapons, put down your hate and fear of “the other.” Look someone in the eye. They are not so different from you. Put down the burden of carrying the hate and narrowmindedness of your elders. Refuse that legacy! Let them know, who would have you carry their hate forward in time perpetuating this endless bloodshed and misery, let them know that you will not do it!

And to those who strive ever to acquire and attain more more more, know this. No matter how much you have, power over others or material wealth, you will still suffer as all humans do, and you will die as all humans do. Make peace with that! Share rather than hoard! Offer rather than taking!
