During a recent trip, I visited a spiritual/New Age bookstore and came across a small newspaper called "Positive News" from around the world. It originates in the United Kingdom. 

Their publication focuses on all the efforts and good things happening around the world that are helping to transform our planet. It is very refreshing to see how so many different groups of people from various cultures are genuinely trying to heal our beloved Mother and those of us who live on her. As you know, she is suffering quite a bit these days.

Below are some excerpts from their wonderful publication that will give you a sense of what what is happening in our world from a positive point of view as well as web sites you may want to visit...
