No leader is going to give us peace

To bring about peace in the world, to stop all wars, there must be a revolution in the individual, in you and me. Economic revolution without this inward revolution is meaningless, for hunger is the result of the maladjustment of economic conditions produced by our psychological states: greed, envy, ill-will, and possessiveness. To put an end to sorrow, to hunger, to war, there must be a psychological revolution, and few of us are willing to face that. We will discuss peace, plan legislation, create new leagues, the United Nations and so on and on; but we will not win peace because we will not give up our position, our authority, our money, our properties, our stupid lives. To rely on others is utterly futile: others cannot bring us peace. No leader is going to give us peace, no government, no army, no country. What will bring peace is inward transformation which will lead to outward action. Inward transformation is not isolation, is not a withdrawal from outward action. On the contrary, there can be right action only when there is right thinking, and there is no right thinking when there is no self-knowledge. Without knowing yourself, there is no peace.

Tsunamis, earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes, typhoons, tornadoes, thunderstorms, snow storms, floods, fires, landslides...

These are the kinds of things our planet dishes out which arouses human curiosity and, occasionally, fear.


Earth Alerts is a Windows-based application that provides alert notifications, reports, and imagery on many types of natural phenomenon that are occurring real-time both worldwide as well as in specific locations within the United States (including Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands). Earth Alerts also lets you track weather and earthquake activity for Global locations!

Earth Alerts makes use of the resources from organizations such as the National Weather Service, U.S. Geological Survey and numerous other agencies to identify what sort of things "Mother Earth" is currently doing.

To use Earth Alerts, you simply select the specific activity types (earthquakes, tsunamis, weather, etc.) and the specific locations you are interested in. The application will then automatically retrieve the latest information from various live data feeds on the Internet, and then present it to you.

Is EARTH ALERTS just another weather application?

In a word: NO!

True, there are many weather applications available, but Earth Alerts is designed to be much more than just another weather application! While weather-related features such as alerts, local forecasts, radar/satellite imagery, current conditions, etc. are certainly an important part of it, Earth Alerts offers much more than that! After all, our planet can sometimes be quite destructive to us "mere mortals" by offering up dangers in a variety of ways! And so, the inspiration for Earth Alerts grew out of an idea to create a single application that would collect information on ALL TYPES of natural events/hazards.

Earth Alerts is a tool to provide you with a way to be notified immediately whenever events such as tsunamis, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, hurricanes/typhoons, floods, wildfires, landslides, etc. occur near you as well as elsewhere in the world. Earth Alerts gives you all this AND weather related alerts and information!
Earth Alerts is for anyone who is fascinated with the power of nature and enjoys learning what our little blue planet is dishing out on a regular basis...

Earth Alerts is 100% FREE to download and use!

What you are matters infinitely

What the individual is, the society is. What you are matters infinitely. That is not a mere slogan but, if you go into it really deeply, you will discover how significant your actions are, how what you are affects the world in which you live—which is the world of your relationships, however small, however limited. And, if we can fundamentally alter, bring about a radical revolution in ourselves, INWARDLY, then there is a possibility of creating a different world, a different set of values.

Only the individual can change, not the mass

I am talking to the individual because only the individual can change, not the mass; only you can transform yourself, and so the individual matters infinitely. I know it is the fashion to talk about groups, the mass, the race, as though the individual had no importance at all, but in any creative action it is the individual who matters. Any true action, any important decision, the search for freedom, the inquiry after truth, can only come from the individual who understands.…If any one of us is truly individual in the sense that he is trying to understand the whole process of his mind, then he will be a creative entity, a free person, unconditioned, capable of pursuing truth for itself and not for a result.

There is hope in the individual, in you, not in a system, not in the blueprint of a planned society, not in any religious organization, but in you, the individual. - Daily Quote
