    Question What's Your Thoughts On The Bill & Melinda Gate Foundation?

    So anyway a Facebook friend of mine told me about the Bill & Melinda Gate Foundation? It's a program that provides funds for citizens including young, old, people who work, retired, self-employed, deaf, people with low income, and disabled. He told me that he got $200,000 at his doorstep. I ask if it legitimate. He said it was legit. He even gives me the phone number to contact them. Hmmm. Sounds tempting and I might want to contact them. What do you think about it?

    Sounds like BS.

    Their foundation does not give money to individuals. It gives funding, through grants, to organizations with program and metrics to measure those programs, designed around their various program goals.

    “You have never answered but you did not need to. If I stand at the ocean I can hear you with your thousand voices. Sometimes you shout, hilarious laughter that taunts all questions. Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."
    ~~Stephen Jay Gould, Wonderful Life: The Burgess Shale and the Nature of History

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett
