As the creator, I spend a lot of time here on ROE and know the strain that computer screens can have on the eyes. But there may be another good reason to use Dark Mode.
The moment I first used a device with an OLED display, I knew there was something I liked about it but didn’t know why. I soon came to realize it is it’s simplicity. An OLED display uses less energy in Dark Mode. At the time it wasn’t widely used, however it has gained in popularity. Meaning Dark Mode may not save too much energy in older phones, but it is in the future for a more sustainable device.
Being the coder that I am and wanting to care for the earth can feel very contradicting at times. Much like how humans can feel that their small actions can’t make a difference. But let’s imagine this: If I, a consumer of goods, never experience the contrast to receive the desire to create goods that come from a place of intention, then it would never manifest. In other words if we send out the message to the universe that we want a more sustainable, more loving, more intention driven goods then we will manifest it. And sometimes it looks like Dark Mode.
Overall my intention with Dark Mode, and with all my programming practices is to tell the universe what I want to see in the world so that it manifests.
As a coder, I do my best to do my part to create energy efficient websites.
May your eyes and your hearts stay at ease with Dark Mode.
It’s been a long time coming. In the past few years there have been a lot of experiments and failures. It’s what got Ripple of Existence to where it is now. To commend this new edition, a history timeline of Ripple of Existence has been added to the about page. It’s pretty cool to see how it has evolved so much.
In April 2020, Ripple of Existence underwent a process that made the mission the forefront of it’s services. As a result there have been a few changes to how it works and even a new feature, however the mission is still the same. In fact it shines through our service even more.
ROE v.2.0 New Updates & Features
A simple sign up process, allowing users to self-verify their accounts with profile completeness. This also keeps search results for completed/verified accounts.
There is no longer a “reward” system for your harmonious deeds. These could change all too often for each individual and would require a lot of energy to maintain. Energy that should be focused more on the mission of connecting Conscious Contributors. Which leads us into the next big change.
There is no longer the separate user types: Harmonious Artisan(the vendor) and Conscious Contributors(the consumer). Many people thought that because they weren’t an artist they couldn’t participate so “What Does Artisan Really Mean?” was written. Soon the conclusion came that we are all artisans and contributors. We are both. We need to get out of old programs that separate the consumer from the companies. We are Conscious Contributors.
No global marketplace, events, or groups….yet. The vision grew faster than it was ready for. All the extra features that were added over time have been pulled until people can understand its first purpose of connecting Conscious Contributors through the directory – build portfolio/profile(what you contribute) and find what you need(connecting with others).
NEW FEATURE! Create “ripples” by sharing an announcement about your work. “Follow” your favorite Conscious Contributors to see the “ripples” they are making on the Ripples page.
Rebrand! – Simplified the color scheme and created a new simpler logo to reflect it’s new branding.
Lighting of the Moon festival is having lots of workshops and I am hosting one of them. It will be called ‘Humanity’s Guide to Harmony’. This will guide humans through three principles which are: being aware of the ripple effect, how we relate to the big picture(eternity), and how to synchronize with it. Harmony Training was the original idea for one on one training of the guide and how to integrate it into your life. It was not intended to be a workshop, but discovering our workshops were the training, we are making an outline of the guide a workshop.
How was this created?
Shenee asked me what should people know for Harmony Training? What I listed was: being aware of the ripple effect, knowing how to be confident in making conscious ripples, and taking care of self. These three just came out of me like I’d already knew it. We wrote them all down and discussed like our brains were rivers of ideas flowing into our ocean of a vision. After scribbling, crossing out, and rewriting, I realized that these were very similar to the original principles of harmony, my original workshops, and Shenee had matching workshops as well.
The original principles of harmony were based on exchanges. They are the current Conscious Contributor and Harmonious Artisan ‘user agreement’ so to speak when creating an account.
My original workshops are on subjects I am very passionate about; time and the ripple effect. The deeper I dived into each subject, the more I realized they were almost the same and overlapped in many areas.
The ripple effect became of great interest when I wanted to take care of god. I believed in order to show gratitude to god we must love all of its creation. As long as I can remember I’ve thought in terms of energy and understood how they can interact on a vibrational plane. We have vibrations and so did our thoughts, the words we say, and the things we do. All on a microcosmic and macrocosmic level. a molecular level to cosmic level. everything is vibrating. To be aware of this has been overwhelming to me and I wanted to discover what my role was in all this. What could I do about it? Should I do anything about it? Should I cease to exist? Should I be the extreme monk that never hurts a fly or live a yolo life? I knew neither were right. Being extreme is not the way; the middle way to harmony.
Time is Art. That is what I learned on my journey to find what synchronized us. I never knew what to do as a human, but I knew the sun came up and went down every day. Surely days, seasons, months, and years were nothing to be trifled with. That was the first definite pattern. From there I studied circadian rhythms and discovered our direct link between us and nature. (Give examples) The sun created patterns not only on our planet but in our bodies and mind. The moon, and other star systems create patterns that also affect us. There are thirteen moons in a year. Each moon being around 28 days the same as a women cycle. After discovering this I questioned why we didn’t use this for the year calendar instead of the gregorgian calendar that has different amount of days each month and adds an extra day in february every four years. This led me to the mayan calendar which uses cycles/patterns/orbits in the universe. This makes perfect sense now.
Once I discovered the true nature of the universe I understood what I was a part of; Eternity.
Side Story: There was originally an option to do two 30 min workshops or one 1hr workshop. I chose two. But upon speaking with Shenee I realized the two workshops topics over lapped and wished I chose one instead. The universe knew before I did because come to find out, it was changed to one 1 hour workshop. The result of combining the workshops manifested ‘Humanity’s Guide to Harmony’. This was the ripple effect working right before me.
By combining our efforts we have outlined the new principles of harmony.

2. A Transaction is a Ripple– learn about humanity’s relation to eternity, via the dollar vote, and how to be confident in resourcing ethically
3. Time is Art – learn how to synchronize with eternity through ancient cosmology and calendar systems
