Philanthropic Introduction to the Looking-Glass Web retreat
original preview of Looking-Glass.co.uk was quietly launched at 00.01
GMT on the 1st January 2000, with a purpose to ensure that a gateway
of hope would always remain open for our future.
For a few
short moments in earth's human history, millennium fever heightened
moral senses as humanity aspired towards more natural paths to help
extend those emotions; feelings of hope, peace, sharing and global
But apathy soon
set in again spawning even more demons, feeding off our self-centeredness,
recklessness, misjudgement and mistrust ... and the irony is that
the stability and survival of this planet in a new millennium has
become even more fragile, so aspirations and resolutions are needed
now more than ever.
If there are ways to encourage such aspirations, Looking-Glass provides
the foundation to help develop and discover them.
But first we need to summarize the current plane of evolution which
humanity currently interacts with. This is so that we know how to
lift ourselves to a higher level with a clear emphasis on "harmonic
consciousness" - a prime instinct, which humanity needs to develop
pretty soon if it is ever going to survive and live in complete unity
with Earth and all that inhabits it.

business and religion spiraling into a free-for-all melt-down, our
millennial dreams of a long-term caring utopia have been replaced
with short-term, agressive objectives. It' s the era of intrusion
and dumbing-down, and it's the gathering of indocile paradoxical cultures,
whose sole purpose is to over-consume, win votes or win wars.
along with the planet we consume, has reached saturation point and
our response is self-perpetuating destruction; an escape mode for
when it seems there's no reason to learn anything different or to
understand from a different viewpoint - when there's no way out, no
hope or no reason to care. And with blinkers on, we take whatever
we can and make the most of it before it's too late. We usually continue
with this abstract trait until our untimely death.
This behaviour envelopes not only less intelligent modes of society,
but an array of lifestyles. It grows through conformity, personal
complexes, self-indulgence, self-righteousness and conceitedness.
It's accentuated through the delusion of control over others, xenophobia,
misguided religion and parochial attitudes.
we care about developing connections both with nature and other people,
and bury our head into apps, Facebook and Twitter world, we transpose
the responsibility of our actions into into a meaning so irrelevant
that our relationship with the physical world around us .. and other
people becomes transitory to the extreme.
But is there a way to reverse global meltdown? And if so, does that
mean there is a way to stop humanity from "dumbing-down"?
... Which comes first?"
of dumbing down? ... evolve
This web retreat's mission
is to introduce a natural consciousness of global compassion. It crafts
methods to establish a heightened sense of morality, which can blend
seamlessly into a 21st century lifestyle.
Looking-Glass and its major sister site VeggieGlobal.com is still
a place to plant the seeds of your millennial wishes each and every
year ... and help them to grow wisely and interdependently with all
aspects of your environment - for the sake of earth's future. It
doesn't need environmental gurus or a convention of scientists to
prove that the world has reached saturation or "tipping"
point. Anyone with an intuitive mind could see this happening many
years back. But the world, in its rush to consume and "develop"
has had no time to listen to such remote warning cries, and instead
have chosen to wait until it's too late to reverse many facets of
environmental destruction now taking place. Conventional science,
governments and therefore people need to feel the deepest cut before
they respond. Irrational thinking perhaps, but there is always hope
that humankind will do all it now can to help reverse or at least
slow down the inevitable. Around Looking-Glass and VeggieGlobal you
may find yourself picking up flavours of inpiration that could help
you to reflect, and maybe adjust your lifestyle to accomodate new
ways to interact with your homeworld. Create your own mini-missions
to heal the planet. Apart
from its philosophy of positive healing and philanthropic mission
to spread compassionate awareness, Looking-Glass bridges the social
networking mainstream with the natural world; covering animal, environmental,
and humanitarian concerns.
Most importantly, Looking-Glass, combined with VeggieGlobal, provides
a platform to introduce the mainstream to smaller, lesser-known groups
who have devoted their lives to heal, provide shelter and give hope
- you can interact and help these champions of compassion from the
comfort of your computer.
In fact, the Looking-Glass
experience invites you to interact on different levels - whichever
suits you - depending on your mood and how much time you have during
your visit to this web retreat.
But while you are urged to relax and take solace here, you are also
prompted, from time to time, to review your life's purpose; to purge
any self-denials, prejudices and short-sightedness ... You are encouraged
to reflect and procure a life resolution - your very own prime-directive
- to explore your future as a "Global Compassionate".
beginning of your journey at Looking-Glass is reflective of your real
world, but through the mirror you can journey ever outward - and
inward - to explore new ethical horizons and perhaps to understand,
absorb and accept more in a way you might never usually allow yourself.
On your return, introduce those soul-enriching elements that you have
found in Looking-Glass into your everyday life.
There is absolutely nothing religious or politically biased about
Looking-Glass - just common - and uncommon sense on a universal
scale. Being a source provider of self-realization - Looking-Glass
projects an ethereal quality, but with the more pragmatic view and
substance that avoids the pretence of new-age psychobabble or contrived
art-speak. Academic jargon is also kept to a minimum but an ambience
of fun and euphoria gently drifts throughout the sites while still
accomplishing an intelligent and fascinating insight towards anthropological
and existential subjects.
Above all, Looking-Glass aids to harmonically align many human traits
between all creeds, races and social fashions.
The Dreambeat ensures the view of a clear path of universal harmony
and peace between ALL ...
human to human - human to animal - human to all nature...
you will also find here are questions, answers, suggestions, inspirations
and fulfilling activities - intelligible and distinctive from the
commercial shallowness found on much of the internet. Looking-Glass
incorporates a cultural environment of an instinctive quality - and
by gathering the most naturally balanced elements of human understanding
... and perhaps much further ... it aims to define a meaning of life
that helps you build your dreams and emotions into a manageable structure.
A place where you can root and grow, tuned to the natural harmonics
which run throughout and beyond ALL universes ...
