Denial of service attack

It looks like Ovi was among many sites especially media that have been hit by hackers in what appeared to be a distributed denial of service. Trying to load Ovi magazine a message was coming from the search engine saying: “cannot display the webpage”

LOL please hackers we don’t belong to the mega-media moguls with political and money agendas. So …just let people express their opinion freely.

Lily Jade in Ovi and about China

h_large_Hb“Talking of China, most people must be thinking about The Great Wall, low cost Made-in-China goods, and the fast growing economics in the past 30 years. Well, let’s leave those behind and have a look at of modern Chinese people’s life.

5,000 years of history makes China a mystery to the western world. However, same as everywhere else, money is always important to Chinese, but it has never been so important as it is right now.”

I new addition for the Ovi Team; Lily Jade. 20 something native Chinese lives in Malaysia, studying for a master in women entrepreneurship. Loves cats, traveling, pop corn and simple life style. She believes smile is the best make up for a women and happiness is the best medicine for all the illness. The greatest interest of hers is to travel and meet people from all over the world and get to know the world she’s living in.

Merry Christmas without guns!!!

Xmas Ovi CoverOvi’s editorial in today’s issue: “I know it is strange to see me writing in a religious day but do please go beyond the religious part and keep the message. The message is simple and it is love. It is compassion, understanding, carrying. But then again this Sunday on my radio show and despite all the Christmas spirit and talking about kids, presents and of course Santa Claus we ended up talking most of the time about what happened in Connecticut, USA last week. And do you know what our biggest worry was? Who’s next! ”

Life In The Age Of Extinctions

When we started the Ovi bookshop we aimed to reach people in variety of themes and interests. Six years after and forty-five books we have had thousands of downloads and thousands

Life In The Age Of Extinctions

Life In The Age Of Extinctions

copies of our books are part of EBooks collections all around the world. I know it sounds weird but I was so proud when browsing in the internet one day I found six of our books in one of those torrent/sharing files sites. I know, I know it is illegal and all that but the same time in a very strange way, it proves that we are doing something right and that there are people out there who haven’t realize that all our publications – just like everything else – is for free but they feel that they are worth to have even if that means crossing certain lines. Strange how controversial things can make you proud.

You all know David; you have read his poems, his ideas. And he has managed to communicate with his words, his heart and his spirit with all of you. Now David Sparenberg is publishing a book with Ovi magazine reaching out and communicating with more hearts and souls.

Prolonging David’s book I wrote: “David says that there is hope. As long we connect our spirits and open our minds, remembering the forgotten calling. Remembering that we are all fundamentally connected with Mother Earth. And it doesn’t matter how much you agree or disagree, David starts the dialogue and with your participation you are already culturally connected. The rest …we can do it together.”

And David Sparenberg’s “Life In The Age Of Extinctions” is such a calling. Read his book, take a slow breathe and start the dialogue with David and yourself just like he’s calling you to do.

I thought since it is David Sparenberg’s …special day to add in this introduction his latest thoughts.

STANDING

A person does not stand on their opinions, unless this person is a fool. What are opinions? The nearest thing to nothing. Opinions are often obese and generally feed on junk food. They are but dust in the wind, and blown apart more frequently than changing weather.

But there comes a time in life, a point Archimedean, when, I believe, a person stands upon convictions. By this, not principles out of cold abstractions; no, not carvings of dead stuff; but a kind of feeling-philosophy, a light threaded into the DNA of identity, gathered in hindsight from the experience of being alive over duration of a certain measure of space and time.

And when convictions are fueled through truth-force, infusing a poetic of solar energy, one stands in strength, alert, and sustained by courage.

Truly, I will say, the two legs, the spine, and with the face facing into this condition of existence—these physical realities are at the root of human dignity. Within this context, to stand up—to show one’s face, to open one’s voice—this is the first expression of an intention.

And within this intention, or the intention of being human which I envision, emerge, in writhing out of dreamtime, the lightning tongued serpents of Aesclepius, and in the sharing of a healing dream, the extension that is movement is a movement unto freedom.

Toward our transformations, when they are such—oh have you not dreamed and felt this also?—creation turns in the mutuality of longing, awaiting liberation. Standing, as power, when we do, in the valley of fate, in the narrow defiance of the mountain of promise.
