Freedom From Debt Slavery
www.prosperityuk.com/prosperity/prosperity.html 
The supply of money into the economy is the big issue which governs all the issues. Virtually all money is supplied to the economy as a debt owed to the banking system. Consequently, we see the indebtedness of people, families and countries growing daily. The present debt-based economic system perpetuates debt-slavery, and this is ultimately destructive of society, the environment and the planet. Our priority is to generate grass-roots demand for the Government, not the banking system, to create a supply of money debt-free, and to spend it, not lend it, into society on the basis of proven need. This will reduce the overall burden of debt in society, break reliance upon the banking system for the supply of money, and open potential for limitless change.

In this outlook everyone is great, valuable, and important.

Only Love Prevails
http://OnlyLovePrevails.org
We are seeking 80,000 people who are willing to be part of an experiment to see if we can shift the world's perception of "good and evil" to a perception of love. It won't cost you any money and will take only seconds a day. We believe we are all one mind and that if enough people (critical mass) could shift their own personal perception—change their minds—about the existence of evil, then the whole planet could shift into a perception of love.
We also believe that world peace begins with each individual achieving a state of peace within themselves. We can begin to do that for ourselves by becoming aware of the "negative" influences in our lives and choosing consciously to eliminate or shift those influences.

The New Being Project
www.newbeing.org
The New Being Project is a non-profit corporation that explores the strong likelihood that our species may be headed into a rapid evolutionary jump, one of comparable impact to the momentous an sudden rom anaerobic to aerobic bacteria, or from asexual to sexual reproduction. We may even be at a juncture where we can invent such a leap. NBP's present task is to identify and study people who may be "edgelings"; those who might give us hints as to how to amplify or modify the direction the leap takes. We may all become co-architects in evolution: A radical venture indeed!

Malidoma tries to accomplish this by working with people to help them implement new ideas to form communities founded in spirit; communities where the flavor of indigenous wisdom prevails through a rediscovery of the magic of nature.

Through their relatively modest but regular giving, their careful stewardship of resources, their sound investing, and their unpaid labor-and with no large grants or donations from major benefactors-they have amassed a million dollar (and growing) fund with which to help support human service work around the world. The Foundation offers support to individuals, groups, and organizations that are all-volunteer or primarily volunteer-based and are involved in projects in the United States and abroad.

Unfortunately, there are few open forums and research facilities available for the general public to develop their ideas.

Scientific developments reported in the last few years have given us methods of slowing the aging process and preventing many degenerative diseases. Our future health and our personal life expectancy are potentially under our individual control to a far greater extent than is generally recognized.

The purpose of this site is to help us move beyond our feelings of hurt, anger and fear and to recognize that we can transcended the artificial divisions of nationality, religion, etc. The events in the U.S. on 9/11 have helped people everywhere remember that we really are part of the human family. The purpose of this site is to reinforce that idea, and remind us that the human spirit is too strong to extinguish. We are promoting the creation of a "World Love Center" monument on the site of the World Trade Center. It would resemble a candle, showing New York, the U.S. and all countries the power of the human spirit to come together and stay focussed on love and peace. That resolve, just as the flame atop this monument, would burn eternal.

The Peace Revolution
www.peacerevolution2010.org
The Peace Revolution Project was started in 2008 when someone pretty cool decided to start talking to the world about what he believed: Inner Peace can lead to World Peace, if people could just learn how to find inner peace for themselves! He got together with some other people who believed the same thing... and, well, here we are! So... we have invented what we think is a chill way to have some fun with inner peace... aka meditation. We taped some meditation experts and you can check them out on MP3s; you can learn more about what inner peaceeally is; you can take a few fun quizzes; and then, if you want to get serious, you can do an on-line self-development program. You can even post questions on our Peace Wall for our online community. So hang back, and cruise the site. It's the best place to be.

BeliefWorks
http://www.beliefworks.org

If you want to change your life, right now, there is nothing more powerful than changing what you believe! For many years, I have explored the idea that the most essential element in the process of personal and organizational transformation is understanding the true nature of belief. What you believe drives everything you do: the thoughts you think, the words you say, and many of the decisions you make. BeliefWorks comes from hundreds of conversations I’ve had with people who asked me to assist them in creating positive change in their lives. What I have discovered, and will share with you in this e-class, is that you if want to begin living the life you dream of, discover what beliefs hold you back and learn to create an new set of empowering agreements.

As you will experience in this e-class, recognizing the true power of belief and consciously putting it to work will uncover your ability to perform real magic affecting the things you encounter every day: the work you do, the relationships you have with everyone you know, and even how you relate to the energy of money. By learning to harness the forces of belief and put them to work for you, you’ll create long-lasting change, remarkable change, one belief at a time.

The Law Of Attraction
www.stevepavlina.com/blog/2006/08/the-law-of-attraction/
The Law of Attraction simply says that you attract into your life whatever you think about. Your dominant thoughts will find a way to manifest. But the Law of Attraction gives rise to some tough questions that don’t seem to have good answers. I would say, however, that these problems aren’t caused by the Law of Attraction itself but rather by the Law of Attraction as applied to objective reality.

Our books and reports are regularly used as tools in decision-making circles. The group shares its information with other non-government organisations (NGOs), thus multiplying its effect by empowering doctors, lawyers and scientists in various countries to communicate their proposals with those decision-makers who can bring about change. O.R.G.’s style is open, creative and problem-solving.

The Common Society Movement
www.CommonSociety.org
would argue that the world is poised on the brink of great peril and great promise. We have the ability to destroy ourselves AND we have the ability to understand, communicate, and cooperate on a scale undreamed of in past centuries.
It is now possible, working together, to begin the creation of a new society - a society created in common and held in common by everyone on the planet. Instead of race, nationality, class or religion, a Common Society is based on one simple fact - that all of our lives are inextricably linked and that the world must work for all beings, or it doesn't work at all. We believe that this requires a change in consciousness - a change from exclusivity to inclusivity, a change from "Us against Them" to "We're in this together". The survival of our planet and our species depends on it. We already know how to live in a world that works for only a few.

Africa Unbound
http://africaunbound.com
Africa Unbound aims to engender a paradigm shift in the way we think about and practice development. The prevailing view is that development is the responsibility of governments and international institutions, such as the World Bank and United Nations. While this is true, it is also important to recognize our individual responsibility and role in the development process. We need to focus on the contributions we can make - large and small - that can add to efforts to alleviate poverty and engender growth. Ultimately, we as caring individuals will be playing the role of partners to governments and formal institutions - development for the people, by the people.

Religion

Association For Global New Thought
www.AGNT.org
Planetary healing through self-realization and spiritually-motivated activism is the new promise of these teachings. Once called the "religion of healthy-mindedness" by the philosopher, William James, the New Thought movement was born almost 150 years ago as a revolt against the negative dogmas so prevalent in the churches of that day. The early New Thought movement was driven by the discovery that physical healing was possible through the power of mind and spiritual awareness. As that initial idea unfolded into successful application, practitioners of New Thought began to see that the power of an uplifted consciousness could also bring healing to negative circumstances and conditions in one's personal life. As it evolves today, twenty-first century New Thought is driven by a far broader intention. Planetary healing through self-realization is emerging as the new promise of these teachings.

Alternative Energy Institute
www.altenergy.org 
A plethora of potential alternative energy technologies seem just out of reach these days. The theories behind some of these "new" forms of energy production have been around for a long time and have historically met considerable opposition from traditional science and engineering. They still do today. The most common arguments against investigation of these new energy forms center around one of two important principles of physics. The first is conservation of energy in closed systems and the second is the current model of the nuclei of atoms, in particular hydrogen.
