Welcome to the Spirit of Ma'at online magazine. We publish a new magazine each month.
We invite you to explore more than 50 issues of Spirit of Ma'at e-zine on various exciting topics.
This Month: THE “MID-WINTER” ISSUE
What comes to life in the dead of winter and where do we find our inspiration when all of nature seems to be in a holding pattern? If things have been in a state of suspension the month of February marks a turning point in the cycle, one which opens up the flow of energies that will eventually give birth to the Spring. As this energy begins to stir in the darkness it activates the creative force that lives inside each one of us. If what we create starts out as a vision, by the time this month comes to an end our visions will be firmly etched into the Unified Field. So the question is; how far can we go with our dreams? At a time when our capacity to envision a new and better world could make a difference what can we do to eliminate any doubt that that might be true? The articles and videos in our Mid-Winter issue focus on the things that all of us have to deal with as we attempt to find out where our purpose lies and learn as much as we can about how the life force works through us to guide us toward the future. If any of them serve to help you understand even a little bit more about how to light up the creative fire that lives in your heart we will have accomplished our purpose.

ADM Tries to Take Down Funny Video; Has No Solutions; Now What?
- ADM video still available here, here, and (for download and reposting) here; page here
- Fake initiatives pages, with links to organizations seeking change on these issues
- More information about last week's website and videos

A legal complaint from agribusiness giant ADM has resulted in the removal from Youtube of a fake video of ADM's CEO making over-honest pronouncements. (The video is still available here, here, and, for download and reposting, here.)
Last week, the filmmaking team behind The End of Poverty? partnered with the Yes Men to create a parallel, imaginary World Economic Forum in which came up with real solutions to poverty. The leaders seemed, in a < href="http://www.we-forum.org/en/events/AnnualMeeting2010/index.shtml">series of videos, to be supporting a set of initiatives based on 10 Solutions to End Poverty, a petition for which the filmmakers are trying to get ten million signatures by the end of 2010.
Each of those initiatives pages has links to organizations that are fighting hard for change on these issues.
In contrast, the actual profound lack of results, some seemingly satirical but all-too-real headlines (like 's Lloyd Blankfein's rumoured $100 million bonus), and one fruitless complaint to Youtube. ended Sunday with a
"If we can bail out bankers to the tune of trillions of dollars, surely we can solve poverty, which will just take a few structural changes, plus a whole lot less money," said Beth Portello, the producer of The End of Poverty?
"All the crises we're facing are rooted in massive inequality and poverty," says Philippe Diaz, the film's director. "If these leaders really wanted to make a difference, they would work towards ending poverty, however uncomfortable that might be for business."
"It's easier to remove funny videos from Youtube," added Portello.
