Editor’s Note: While postings such as this are usually outside our realm, due to the recent reports of physical threats to members of U.S. congress members, we thought is might be a good reminder to reflect on, from where such vitriol originates. While this editor subscribes to both online and in-print alternative press, we at MSI are reminded of the wise words of G. Edward Griffin, author of Creature from Jekyll Island, when he was interviewed by Alex Jones.

When asked how he could live with all the negative information he had learned and written about over the years, Griffin responded**, “I learned a long time ago, to separate my peace of mind from the facts of what I’ve learned. If I had not done so, I would be miserable.”  As one of Mountain Spirit’s board members commented today, “It could be easy to get angry, as there’s plenty to be mad about, but it’s about staying in your center.”

These comments sums up our mission statement, promoting connection instead of division. We encourage our readers to keep a steady hand on the wheel of their inner landscape as the waters become a bit rough, particularly in North America.
* This editor feels that divisive statements by such public figures as Coulter, Limbaugh, and the like don’t further civility nor connection, and furthermore, are encouraged by the corporatacracy to divide and conquer.
