Guiding Principles, Philosophy and General Outlook of RFTPmedia:

Forgiveness and Acceptance

We acknowledge that we are humans and we all make mistakes. We acknowledge that mistakes have been made by humans, and that even now we are making mistakes which affect our planet, the billions of lifeforms here, and the living earth itself, who we call Gaia and recognize as a life-form. We forgive ourselves for the parts we have played in these mistakes, and are here to dedicate ourselves to healing, to positive construction and growth around the world and making amends, expanding our awareness and creative pursuits.

We are All a Work in Progress

We choose to turn a mirror inward, and to focus on what we can create, what we can do, and who we can influence, rather than wallowing in guilt, self-destructive tendencies, or addictions to mask the pain of living in a world that feels broken. We ask for help when we need to overcome our limitations, from safe, trusted sources in the community.

Seeing Our Potential

We acknowledge that we have power, life-force, ability, creativity, intelligence, persistence, and empathy to look fully at the problems we face and to develop and learn new ways of being in the world and with each other that can create a future that is not only adequate, but abundant, playful, joyful, and inspirational for the next 15 generations at least.

Focus on What Unites Us: We Are All Searching for Answers

We recognize that all humans on earth live are searching for closure, transcendence, and changes in our lives, so we focus on what unites us. We support people who are solving problems we face today and look for what we can be grateful for and what we have control of and can change, uplifting each other as a means to save the planet, rather than focusing on errors that have been made. This being said, we will stand up to and resist organizations and individuals who continue their war on planet earth and each other, when we are not able to work with them.

What Happens in the Group Is Determined By The Group

Members and guests control and shape the course of what happens in this group. We encourage our members to share what they have to offer with others under our umbrella by teaching or sharing their thoughts and opinions with each other. All members sign an intellectual property and non-disclosure agreement to protect their rights and the rights of others in the group to have their privacy, work, and ideas respected.
