Consciousness

This week the question that came up was about how we deal with many of the big truths or revelations that are collectively coming to the surface in our society. Things like corruption, the cabal, elite pedophilia, ET disclosure, sexual abuse and so forth.

It also seems like each day we are learning more truths related to these topics, and they are also becoming hard for us to ignore and continue to pretend they are just ‘negative’ things to discuss. So the question of “how do we deal with the internal and collective ‘chaos’ that sometimes comes as a result of learning these truths” becomes a big one.

For some, fear arises. For others, anger, despair, worry, and confusion. In some ways, on social media we see huge wars taking place surrounding these topics, and through the mainstream media, societal divides are being fuelled. But I have also seen that for some, including myself, learning these things can create feelings of relief, understanding and freedom as we realize we were not crazy in what we thought and felt about what really goes on in our world. We may realize that life actually makes more sense when you begin to understand how our world truly works.

It’s an important discussion to explore how we can TRULY handle, individually and collectively, the truths that are coming forth and not end up at each other’s throats, but instead be able to truly process this stuff maturely – something that seems difficult at the moment, but not impossible. In the video below, we have that discussion.

For a long time we’ve been taught that evolution is a process that is happening to us. Thankfully we’re living in times where the human race is finally getting a grasp on the fact that we’re actually actively involved in how we evolve as a species.

As humans, our bodies are constantly changing in response to the environment around us. Our muscles change according to whether we choose to use them or not. The enzymes in our digestive system change in response to the foods we choose to eat. Our endocrine system is in a constant feedback loop with our emotions which can change dramatically according to what’s happening in the world around us. As Dr Bruce Lipton put it, “the cell is a carbon-based ‘computer chip’ that reads the environment”, and the field of epigenetics teaches us that our DNA changes in quality – again, according to our environment.

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

When science talks about ‘environmental influence’ it seems to imply ‘all that which is outside ourselves’. It’s easy to overlook the fact that that our conscious choices about which environmental factors we engage with are part of what shapes the way our bodies restructure. We are part of the environment that influences our own development; our free will lets us choose and change the environment. We participate in our own evolution during our lifetime and what we do in our own lives can also affect future generations. In this way, personal evolution is collective evolution, and nowhere is personal evolution more apparent than how we are capable of rewiring our own brain.

How Reprogramming the Mind Is Helpful To Us

Humans work really well with routines. We repeat the same pattern over and over, and through neuroplasticity our brain wires itself so that it doesn’t have to think too much about that task anymore, it just runs that established electrical pathway. To riff off Noel Burch, it’s like when we learn to drive a car: we move from unconscious incompetence ‘I don’t know how bad at this I’m going to be’; to conscious competence ‘I now know how bad I am at this’; to conscious competence ‘OK, I can do this but I have to keep my mind on the job’; to unconscious competence ‘I can wind the window down, change the radio, turn a corner and change gears all at the same time, without even thinking about it’.

We program ourselves all the time with repetition, so we don’t have to waste energy engaging isolated focus on every task. The question is whether these are routines we are choosing for ourselves or that have been imposed on us? If they are imposed, are they helpful to us both personally and as a species?

When Are We Most Easily Able To Wire And Re-wire Our Mind?

During early childhood our brains are wiring themselves for the first time. While this process slows after the intense surge of development in first few years, our brains are still establishing the wiring we will largely use for the rest of our life throughout childhood. When we hit our teenage years we experience the second surge of new wiring and there is an opportunity for patterns to be created during this time that can setup behaviours for years to come. After this period, neuroplasticity still occurs but it just isn’t as fluid as it was before. So you can teach an old dog new tricks, it’s just a slower process.

The problem here is that our subconscious is overhearing everything our conscious mind is hearing, and is therefore to a being programmed by whatever influence we’re being exposed to. The Jesuits knew this 400 years ago. They would boast:

“Give me a child until it’s seven, it will belong to the church for the rest of its life.’” – Dr Bruce Lipton, paraphrasing Jesuit priests.

We Are Always Programming Ourselves

I like to imagine the subconscious mind is like an autopilot system. It is overhearing everything we ever think or say, and it’s mission (in the background and whenever possible) is to guide us towards whatever we want… or at least whatever it thinks we want according to what it overhears. An extra level of challenge is introduced when we imagine that the conscious mind has the capacity for judgment its higher expression – discernment. The subconscious, however, doesn’t have that ability. When it is overhearing everything you think and every word you say it simply hears the topic, not the context. ‘I don’t want to be fat’ with the judgment of ‘I don’t want’ removed becomes the topic only: ‘be fat’. The subconscious ‘overhears’ the topic of what is active in your conscious mind and it is listening for repetition. This is how it figures out for how ready we need to be for that particular thought process.

Repetition Is The Key. Repetition Is The Key.

If we lift weights we are using repetition to say to the muscles, ‘be ready for this, we may need to do this at any moment, so restructure yourself’. Scientists have found the fastest way to get fit is to do interval sprints, which is basically a physical way of saying to the body through repetition ‘you need to restructure yourself so we can sprint at top speed at any time, at the drop of a hat’. Rest, get your breath back and sprint again, over and over. This repetition tells the body that it’s a high priority to restructure and be ready for this at all times. My observation is that the same appears to be true for our brain. When our subconscious overhears our thoughts and words and there is repetition, there is an increased likelihood of neural rewiring. After all – neurons that fire together wire together.

The path of least resistance

When attempting to re-wire an old habit or behaviour pattern, it is useful to remember the old adage from high school science: electricity follows the path of least resistance. Imagine the old pattern as a well-established electrical pathway in your brain. As you put conscious focus into creating a new electrical pathway to replace the old pattern, you make that new electrical pathway fatter. As soon as you stop putting conscious focus into running the new behaviour pattern the electricity will revert to the old cable for as long as it is the fatter of the two cables, as that is the path of least resistance. As soon as the day comes when the new electrical pathway is thicker than the old one you have a new program in your autopilot system, that will now run on it’s own without you needing to focus conscious intention on it. You have reached a level of conscious competence. According to Dan Coyle a key to making the consciously chosen wiring stick is holding the intention that ‘I want to know this for the rest of my life’. Coyle suggests this causes the brain to coat the new electrical pathway in the brain with myelin insulation, making it much more permanent.

Taking care with the programs we allow our subconscious to overhear

As stated earlier, our autopilot system is taking direction from everything you’re experiencing – which includes the media we watch, the people we surround ourselves with and more. For this reason, one of the most powerful things we can do is exercise discernment around the kind of experiences we expose ourselves to, and their level of intensity and repetition.

“It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.” – Frederick Douglass

(function(w,d,s,i){w.ldAdInit=w.ldAdInit||[];w.ldAdInit.push({slot:10162674340441958,size:[0, 0],id:"ld-8962-3608"});if(!d.getElementById(i)){var j=d.createElement(s),p=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];j.async=true;j.src="//cdn2.lockerdomecdn.com/_js/ajs.js";j.id=i;p.parentNode.insertBefore(j,p);}})(window,document,"script","ld-ajs");

More importantly is the need for extra care in exercising this discernment on behalf of the children in our care and teaching this discernment to teenagers as, in both cases they are in a heightened state of neuroplasticity and are more susceptible to influence. To be clear, I am by no means advocating prudishness or avoidance of the truth, just a higher level of awareness of how we are either consciously or inadvertently being programmed all the time.

In the video below Bruce Lipton speaks passionately on this very subject, citing this discernment on behalf of our children as a clear solution to war and conflict.

Today I would like to return to your awareness an aspect of the Human condition that ventures past the confines of the physical realm and into the vast and infinite beyond. It’s our nature to migrate away from our bodies although we never really think of it that way. It’s not difficult to see that we’re not entirely in one place all of the time. Our thoughts are often elsewhere, transitory and elusive, and virtually immune to the entanglements of time and space. We are free to go anywhere— to visit the past and present and even walk future paths replete with its uncertainties.

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So how much of you are with us at this moment? If you were to hazard a guess what percentage might you come up with? For my part, I feel no more than eighty to ninety percent “here” as I write this article. My ten to twenty has wandered off again, much to the displeasure of my editor who has reminded me I’m up against a deadline. My thoughts typically stray to faraway places and familiar faces. And where my thoughts go— I go.

In the following paragraphs we will use our nets of wonder to try and capture that fleeting butterfly bouncing freely out before us. It’s my supposition that we are mostly where our “thoughts” take us. Here we find that distance is relative. Two people can be a thousand miles apart and still feel closely connected. Likewise, many of us know the feeling of being near someone yet feeling as though they are a million miles away. It’s not enough to be physically close when the butterfly has left the garden.

Welcome to Dream Land

Every night when we fall asleep we are transported to another realm. We do not have a choice in the matter. Try going more than three days without sleep and see what happens. We know the body uses the opportunity for growth, cellular repair and a host of other crucial functions. But where do we go while the body is sleeping and why are we awake in our dreams?

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I find it interesting that we don’t miss being awake while we are sleeping. The thought doesn’t even occur to us. We are often nudged back into consciousness through the help of someone or something. From there it’s often a blurry-eyed trip to the coffee maker. We are told “eight hours” is what we need, though in reality that really depends on the individual. Some function quite well on less sleep, but children and teenagers, and even some grown-ups might require a bit more.

On days we don’t get enough sleep, we sure do miss it. We can’t wait to get home and collapse so we can “drift off” into slumber-land. Nearly a third of our life is consumed by that elusive state we call sleep and yet we really don’t know where we are while we’re there. It’s generally accepted that we don’t go very far, that our brain is the crucible for all our dreams and it’s a contained experience. Though there is logic to that assertion, I don’t fully embrace it. It’s my contention (and other’s too) that the ethereal world is elastic and we are free to move beyond our physical body as it winds down and recharges through rest.

Those who enjoy “lucid” dreaming might have an advantage here. If they are able to walk freely in this realm and turn a few knobs and pull a few levers, there is no telling what they might discover. If they can navigate the oceans of slumber while knowing they are asleep, then the possibilities for self-discovery would seem endless. I’m not gifted with such ability, but if I were I would certainly try to understand the light I was walking under and analyze the structure of my dream. I might also spend a lot more time in bed. So I guess it’s just as well that I don’t lucid dream.

In this “unconscious” state we can visit with relatives who have passed on and even reunite with beloved pets. We can also connect with the living in ways uniquely different from the physical world. Twins are known to communicate while in a dream state. It’s my understanding that they will sometimes see their twin in a dream, then later call to tell them about it. Of course, the other twin already knows of the dream having seen their sibling too.

The passion from a lost “twin flame” can also bubble up in dream land. Here’s an opportunity to say the things that were never said and to maybe even embrace one last time. Here the emotional energy is just as intense as it would be in a physical state— and sometimes even greater. There are also countless stories of wives who dreamt of their husbands while they were stationed in combat zones in foreign countries. Sometimes the dreams were foretelling of a serious incident or tragedy. Such events serve to further my sense that we can’t possibly stay in our bodies while we sleep.

The best that I can surmise is that the essence of who we are is mostly “there” when we are asleep and mostly “here” while we’re awake. In either case we’re not fully 100% in one place or another since we’re capable of “drifting” in and out even when fully conscious. So this space that some call the astral realm is neither here or there. It’s everywhere.

Here, There and Everywhere

It seems to me that we are not firmly anchored in place by our physical bodies. Our minds are free to “wander” and drift about while only lightly tethered to the Earth. And why is this so? The physical realm has much to offer in the way of tactile stimulation and there is much to be gained from this experience. But consciousness enjoys freedom, although it likes having a place to call home. In a sense we have the best of both worlds, spiritual and material. What we find, however, is that people far too often embrace the material world and find solace in their possessions. I would like to remind such souls of a rather well-worn expression; “you can’t take it with you.”

What you can take, perhaps, is the memory of the experience, the sensation and the lesson embodied within it. Like telling people of a fascinating trip or of a new coaster ride at the amusement park— you can explain the experience in great length and detail, but what it meant to you is what matters most.

And so we “think outside the box” and we “drift away” in our sleep and we “float on Cloud 9” and we were so angry we “were outside ourselves.” These are but a few examples of how we describe this external awareness. The empathic can “feel your pain” and when a favorite ball player hits the ball out of the stadium we can feel his (or her) excitement. Is this energy in the ether? Are we in the ether?

(function(w,d,s,i){w.ldAdInit=w.ldAdInit||[];w.ldAdInit.push({slot:10162674340441958,size:[0, 0],id:"ld-8962-3608"});if(!d.getElementById(i)){var j=d.createElement(s),p=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];j.async=true;j.src="//cdn2.lockerdomecdn.com/_js/ajs.js";j.id=i;p.parentNode.insertBefore(j,p);}})(window,document,"script","ld-ajs");

Zoned Out

That’s what some have accused me of being at times. This goes back all the way to grade school when teachers mistakenly identified me as a “clock watcher”. I did ignore the teacher, true. But I was not captivated by the clock either. I would frequently drift away from where I was to escape the prison I felt around me.

This “zoning out” was really a very natural state for me to be in. A zoned out state is not a neutral state. It’s a very intense, highly focused state. It does correctly imply that you’re “not there,” but you are somewhere, and you are somewhere in a big way. Creative people can readily identify with this elusive state. It can, however, create a somewhat vacant stare which I admit I’ve been guilty of wearing from time to time.

Where we go when zoned-out I cannot exactly say. New understandings in the quantum world are expanding our awareness on a diverse array of subjects ranging from non-locality and telepathy to OBE’s and related astral projection. All I know is that I go somewhere, and somewhere is not always here.

Final Thought

So where are we when we’re not here? I’ll leave the question with you. Is this a cop-out on my part? -Perhaps. All I can say is we’re not always where we think we are. The body serves as an excellent interface with the physical world, but at times it can seem almost as though it were remotely controlled. To say we are continually held in place by our physical body is like saying a raincloud will never surrender a drop of water. Sooner or later thoughts will wander and stray and raindrops will fall in a staccato rhythm consistent with the mood and energy of the moment.

I don’t know exactly where I go, but I know I’m not always here. For me, that’s at least a start toward understanding the ultimate transition or metamorphosis when we surrender our physical body to the elements. On that midnight train we might find that all the answers we work so hard to uncover were right before us the whole time. We didn’t see them because we doubted our own abilities. We didn’t loosen our grip on all those things we accepted as truth. Instead we bought into phony concepts of reality where we were told how helpless and sinful we were. There is no place for higher awareness in this void we call social order and so we never learn to use the spiritual tools imbued within us.

We are social entities, you and I. We are solidly individual and we are also collective. Yes, we are both. We cannot flourish just as individuals nor can we survive as a collective. But we do quite well in both worlds and in varying measure. So we’re a little bit here and a little bit there and always somewhere. But wherever you may find yourself, you are never alone. And the butterfly will fly.

-Until next time

turning beyond

All around us, things seem to be breaking down. Many of us, who are seeing the hopelessness of trying to effect change in the outer world, are turning within for solutions. But somehow the whole idea of turning within rings a little hollow, knowing all the suffering and insanity that is going on all around us. We still keep thinking there must be a way to help “out there”, to bring about positive change in the world. So we keep struggling with the outer world, because turning within is considered “selfish”. And indeed it can be, if not done in the right spirit.

So my question is, is there another alternative? How about turning beyond? How would that be? Is there a way to transcend, AND be effective in the relative world? To truly be in the world but not of it? To stand before it arises, with eyes wide open, and to see right through all of it? and thereby be a fire that effortlessly burns the false?

more here than here

And by “beyond” i mean what is even more here than here. This “Beyond” is not somewhere else. And, the word “turning” is not really accurate, either, because Beyond has no direction, it is All-Pervading. “Turning” implies focusing attention, but Beyond is the realm of No-Attention.

The “outer” is a field of attention. The “inner” is a field of attention. But the Beyond, the Eternal, is the field of No-Attention. It cannot be reached by any method or mode of attention. So to access the realm of No-Attention requires a paradoxical understanding and method.

Perhaps when we are “turned beyond” we will be equally at home and effective within or without, because then we are grounded in the great integrating Radiant Force of that which is beyond all opposites, and which reveals the hidden unity behind all apparent polarities. For me, “non-duality” is not complete, until all seeming opposites are integrated, viscerally, in the body, not just transcended.

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

butterfly effective

But what if this slight but profound adjustment from “within” to “beyond” is actually way more powerful than we think? Perhaps if we can truly be total about it, our entire world will turn inside out, and this will open up an immense storehouse of energy and insight that we can share with the world, just naturally, moment to moment. Perhaps this is the only way to be truly effective, even. When we meet our true expression, is when we begin to become truly effective, even when apparently doing little more than simply existing. We could call this being butterfly effective. Things begin to work on their own, in mysterious and synchronistic ways you never could have imagined.

And this turning within/beyond is also spiraled. It is in the shape of the torus, and has the irrational infinite harmonics of the Fibonacci series. It is not as simple as gazing at one’s navel. But it is our natural state, so it is also effortless. We have to engage it with precision and delicate insight, and persist with love, and moment to moment surrender into the current, and we WILL distill the nectar : ananda or bliss.

(note in this picture the unity point at the center of the torus)

The term ‘bliss’ has been so abused that most of us have a complete misunderstanding of what it is, and have lost connection to how to access it. I believe that the work of resurrecting our bliss process is the single most important and effective thing we could do, both for ourselves and for the world, and in this essay i would like to explore why that is, and how to re-member it, in other words, how to actually re-embody it.

bliss is parasite repellent : true protection

We have seen a lot coming into the collective awareness in the last few years about the Parasite. The astrological configuration of Uranus square Pluto since around 2010 has given many of us a chance to see through the veil much more clearly, and those of us with our vision intact have been seeing that there is an extra-dimensional parasitic agenda going on. This was introduced to us also in the 70s in the works of Castaneda, and his stories of the shaman Don Juan who referred to “the Flyers”, invisible parasitic beings who feed on our energy and light. Of course this topic goes back millennia, as it is a major theme here on planet Earth. In fact it has most likely been with humanity since the beginning. The ancient Gnostic teachings (the Nag Hammadi texts) also refer to the archons, parasitic 4th dimensional entities for whom the human realm is little more than a farm, and humans are their cattle.

“i just want to know about your different lives, on this here people farm” – Jimi Hendrix

Lately it has really come out of the closet, this agenda, and is full-on in our faces. Only those who are still fast asleep are failing to notice the manifestations and ramifications of this, at least on some level. And those of us who are engaged in this mother of all battles with these entities are going through deep and extensive changes, trying to understand what they are and how to deal with them, and how to ultimately be free of them.

Sri Aurobindo made it very clear:

“Looking at all that is and has been happening in human history – the eye of the Yogin sees not only the outward events and persons and causes, but the enormous forces which precipitate them into action. If the men who fought were instruments in the hands of rulers and financiers, these in turn were mere puppets in the clutch of those [occult hyperdimensional] forces. When one is habituated to see the things behind, one is no longer prone to be touched by the outward aspects – or to expect any remedy from political, institutional or social changes. The only way out is through the descent of an [embodied] consciousness which is not the puppet of these forces but is greater than they are.”
~ Sri Aurobindo

That “descent of embodied consciousness” is our bliss, and is the true protection.

our magic tortoise

Recently, while listening to the brilliant scientist Dan Winter, he made a comment that struck me. And that is, that we are ALL parasites, IF we are looking to the apparent outside world for our bliss.

Our bliss is our Pure Consciousness, and is the fountain of eternal life. It IS eternal. We have access to it, always, as we let go into the Luminous Field in which our own body/mind is presently arising. But it is SO innate to us, even closer than home, that we miss it. It is like failing to notice the space in which everything arises, because we are so mesmerized by what is arising in that space.

But as long as we persist in trying to access this bliss through situations and beings in the seeming “outside world” (which sages throughout history, and lately even scientists have determined is an illusion), we fall into the trap of the Parasite, which monitors this world, like a hidden master, manipulating the levers of this “reality”. Through the program of the Parasite, we are convinced that there is a way to access this Unconditional Happiness, somewhere “out there” in conditions, in the hologram. And that is precisely how our energy is harvested.

The I Ching alerts us to this dilemma:

from the I Ching, hexagram 27, “Providing Nourishment, line 1:

 

“Nine at the beginning means:
You let your magic tortoise go,
And look at me with the corners of your mouth drooping. 
Misfortune.

The magic tortoise is a creature possessed of such supernatural powers that it lives on air and needs no earthly nourishment. The image means that a man fitted by nature and position to live freely and independently renounces this self-reliance and instead looks with envy and discontent at others who are outwardly in better circumstances. But such base envy only arouses derision and contempt in those others. This has bad results.“

So, the best way to combat the Parasite is to cease giving it our energy, by allowing our attention to fall back to its source, the Infinite Well of Being, the portal to which is in the heart. To be free of the Parasite, STOP BEING A PARASITE! We each have our own source of infinite power and energy, and we are required, sooner or later, to wake up to this fact. This will eventually lead us to the process of initiation, into the Great Work. The change is very simple, almost nothing, but, paradoxically, it is also an ordeal which requires our innate superhuman intelligence and skill to pass through,

All roads lead to our uniqueness

Everyone’s spiritual awakening process is unique. Due to our different conditioning and conditions of life, each one of us will have a particular way to proceed with the unwinding of our conditioning, and once realization happens, we will each have a unique expression of that awakening. I believe that the astrology chart can be helpful in this respect.

It is important to note, too, that spiritual awakening, or enlightenment, will dissolve the sense of separate self, or ego, but will NOT destroy the individuality. In fact, it will be the first time our true individuality will be able to manifest. This is an important point to be very clear on. Also, there is no end to the initiations that one passes through. But clearly there is a “point of no return”, a threshold.

There is a New Age assumption, quite probably based in social engineering, that once we realize enlightenment we will just be blissfully happy all the time, in a positive emotional state, all our problems will cease, and we will dissolve into this cloud of nebulous groupthink where we will no longer have a unique expression or point of view. Often, this state is described as being “blissed out”.

This kind of bliss, which is on sale at new age festivals and the like, is NOT what i am referring to. It is not some kind of “enlightened behavior” that one cranks up when “on the scene”.

Aquarius Leo polarity

This is the Aquarius without the Leo, in the Aquarius/ Leo polarity. But like i’ve said before, only when a polarity like this is resolved and integrated, do we really see the positive sides of both signs manifest.

Aquarius without Leo is a crowd of people, keeping their heads down, not wanting to stand out, following along without questioning the narrative (however “revolutionary”) of the crowd. Leo is the one who stands out on his own, goes his own way, and finds his own unique expression. When these two polarities work together, this is when we have a balanced awakening, for the individual, and the society. A society of awakened, creative, and sovereign individuals. Has that ever happened before? Doesn’t look like it, but there’s no time like the present.

more on the Leo Aquarius polarity here: from selfies to Self-realization: resolving the Leo/Aquarius polarity

I like the word “individual”:

 

“late Middle English (in the sense ‘indivisible’): from medieval Latin individualis, from Latin individuus, from in- ‘not’ + dividuus ‘divisible’ (from dividere ‘to divide’).”

So an individual is someone who is undivided, and not separate from Source, and from All. But also, (or perhaps i should say, because of that,) an individual is someone who is unique, unlike anyone else. It is a paradox that the mediocre mind just cannot contain.

We are not talking about ego here. We are talking about our unique expression, which comes to full flower when we awaken to the Transcendental Truth of who we truly are. To many, enlightenment may seem like some kind of airy-fairy pie-in-the-sky idea that could never possibly happen, perhaps some idealistic “mindset”, but we only have to look into the lives of all those who have affirmed it in their own case, to see that we may not be in a position to judge one way or the other. Just because it hasn’t dawned on you yet, doesn’t mean it is impossible.

absolute certainty

This is not the kind of thing anyone can convince anyone about. And no one but you is in the position to confess your own awakening. But no one is going to congratulate you either, or give you a medal. You will get no “certificate”, in fact, it is very likely no one will even notice. And, quite possibly, people will hate you for it. Jesus is a good example of what can happen. But, paradoxically, your awakened nature needs to express itself, and will find the way to do so, no matter what. It becomes a kind of imperative.

When it happens, you’ll know it, and chances are, no one else will even care. If you aren’t sure, then it hasn’t happened yet. When it happens you will have absolute certainty about it, and, in fact, more and more, it will really be the only “thing” that you do have absolute certainty about. And the need to know anything for sure besides that, will also effortlessly fall away. It will not solve your problems, but it will dissolve them, along with their source, the I-thought.

And here’s the kicker: when you become one with this “thing” that nobody notices, you most likely will become invisible. No one will notice you, either. The Narcissus in us does not like this idea at all. But, being invisible has its merits.

sat-chit-ananda

In Sanskrit there is the term “sat-chit-ananda” which means “existence (and truth), consciousness, bliss”. The implication is that Existence (Pure Existence Itself), or Truth (sat), is itself bliss, or ananda. All these three qualities are one and the same. So that implies that merely to exist is blissful. We can see this in animals way more than in humans. Animals have no problem with simply existing, but to humans, this is boring. We need “entertainment”, i.e. distraction, or at least we think we do. In my view, this need for distraction from our own completion, is due to the fear of dissolution of separate self, and the birth of true individuality. Hence the entire entertainment industry, whose main purpose, it seems to me, is to distract you from yourself.

SAT is Truth. We will not arrive to bliss if we cannot face, and then BE the truth, as SAT = ANANDA. Relative truth is the doorway to the ultimate truth. We will never know ultimate Truth if we cannot face relative truth, i.e. WHATEVER is true about our experience here and now. Our love for the truth, for What IS, becomes our only motivation.

So remember, if you buy the cultural lie, in any shape or form, you will not have full, if any, access to your own bliss, your own infinite “bank account”, the well of Eternal Being. Because bliss is one and the same as TRUTH. SAT=ANANDA. And when you buy the lie, you forgo the truth, and thus you are food for the Parasite. It’s that simple. You can borrow its “power” for a time, but in the end it eats you.

the solution to everything is closer than you think

So what this all boils down to, is that if we can slow ourselves down, relax, and free our attention from all the ways it is bound, we will begin to become blissful naturally and spontaneously, because it is the very substance of our pure existence. There is nothing that can be done about it. It is more a question of stopping doing, although that cannot be forced. Stopping doing can become a doing. So we have a riddle, a Koan, on our hands, and the answer to the riddle is going to have to be paradoxical.

Savior Self

Ever since i was a child i always had the feeling that the Second Coming of Christ, the Savior, was actually going to be inside every one of us, and not some being who comes from the outside to save us. And now i am certain of it. There is not going to be anything or anyone in the outer world that comes to “save” us. We have to discover and remember the Christ within us. As Osho always said: “Be a Christ, not a Christian”.

Now to many of us, the idea of being a Christ oneself is actually blasphemous. But that is just the pollution of the church in our minds. And the church is a big part of how we were hacked, so be careful. Because if you resurrect the Christ within you, they are OUT OF A JOB. So, much as they go on and on about Christ, God, and the like, for you to realize your eternal Christ-nature is the LAST thing they want you to do. So they have invented elaborate fairy tales, myths, and stories, which may be symbolic hints at something, but they are all meant as entertainment, distraction, to keep your attention bound in the illusion, the Maya, of the outer world.

Yes, the program of lies always contains a bit of truth, because it knows that we will not be attracted without it. And yes, we have bullshit detectors, although they need to be dusted off, rebooted, and upgraded. So they put the little tidbit of truth on the hook of religion, like a worm on the fisherman’s hook. It is bait, to lure you in. But then you are stuck there in their system, waiting for these little crumbs, these handouts of half truths, just enough to keep you coming back, but definitely not enough to liberate you. Have you noticed this problem? And it is in ALL the religions, but especially the “big 3”, the Abrahamic ones. Their function is to keep you lost, in the dark, and suffering. And all it takes is one blissful moment to see through the entire lie, and you will never be the same again. So the church has a great investment in making sure even one moment like that does not happen. (This is not to say that there are not good and sincere people in all religions, or that one cannot realize in the context of a religion. But it is clearly time for an upgrade.)

So resurrecting your own direct connection to Source is a must. And to me, this is the essence of being a true Gnostic. It is actually spiritual science. These two, spirituality and science, at their highest expression, are actually one and the same.

JeSuis Christ

And what is Christ exactly? Too often the Christ is conflated with Jesus, but it is obvious, (isn’t it?) , that although associated, they are two distinct “things”. Jesus the man may or may not have existed, but how can we really know for sure? Admit it, it’s all hearsay ! None of us were there in person.

There is much debate about the history of Jesus the man, which is, once again, i feel, just to distract from the point, which is that Christ IS real, and is NOW, and is eternal and is always accessible.

To me, the Christ is the miraculous ability we all have, at least potentially, to actually BE the Divine, Pure Infinite Conscious Bliss, here and now, in this seemingly limited form, this body. A Fractal of the Whole, which contains it ALL. Think hologram. Christ is the holographic CRYSTal within us. To be Infinite and finite simultaneously. The “Son (Sun) of God”. It is such a perfect Miracle, that simply to recognize it as your True Self is ecstatic (another totally misunderstood term). It is the ultimate paradox, but there is nothing religious about it. It is actually part of our natural capacity here, but like i said, it has been hacked and disconnected in us, and then couched in a lot of obscure mysticism, to keep us enslaved.

(function(w,d,s,i){w.ldAdInit=w.ldAdInit||[];w.ldAdInit.push({slot:10162674340441958,size:[0, 0],id:"ld-8962-3608"});if(!d.getElementById(i)){var j=d.createElement(s),p=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];j.async=true;j.src="//cdn2.lockerdomecdn.com/_js/ajs.js";j.id=i;p.parentNode.insertBefore(j,p);}})(window,document,"script","ld-ajs");

We can see this described in a different way here:

Rudolf Steiner on the Etheric Christ:

“Almost a hundred years ago, as if peering into a crystal ball and predicting the future, spiritual teacher and clairvoyant Rudolf Steiner prophesied that the most momentous event of modern times was what he referred to as the incarnation of the etheric Christ. By the “etheric Christ,” Steiner is referring to a modern-day version of Christ’s resurrection body, which can be conceived of as being a creative, holy and whole-making spirit that is inspiring human evolution as it operates upon the body of humanity through the collective unconscious of our species. Involving a radically new understanding of a timeless spiritual event, the etheric Christ, instead of incarnating in full-bodied physical form, is approaching via the realm of spirit—as close as this immaterial spirit can get to the threshold of the third-dimensional physical world without incarnating in materialized form. To quote Steiner, “Christ’s life will be felt in the souls of men more and more as a direct personal experience from the twentieth century onwards.” ~Paul Levy

bliss as electricity

I have been happy to come across the work of Dan Winter recently, and it has helped me connect a lot of dots on this subject. He has given us a beautiful understanding of the bliss process as being actually an ELECTRICAL phenomenon, really quite a scientific explanation, with none of the religious baggage attached to it.

I do not have the scientific background he has, in particular his background as an electrical engineer, so i recommend studying his work. But one thing that he says that resonated immediately for me is that bliss is an IMPLOSIVE process, and he has the science to back it up. Now this is a word i never would have thought of to describe it, but the minute i saw that it was a total AHA! Of course. To me, that is exactly how it feels.

Dan also associates bliss with gravity, another insight that i never would have thought of, because it is also pure grace, but nonetheless, to me that also makes perfect sense. He calls it a centripetal force, which is the opposite of centrifugal. So it is the tendency for everything to move towards the center, rather than away from it. And then, my favorite, he also says that it is a NEGENTROPIC force, which is something that goes against entropy. We could say, it is the force that makes things “come together”. In other words, LIFE !

Check out Dan’s work here: http://www.goldenmean.info/

Seems to me an essential component if we are to “come together as one”, which so many of us seems to want to see happen these days. And of course, no one is going to “do” your bliss process for you. This is your responsibility, and yours alone.

In my previous article, “Freedom is an Inside Job”, i mentioned entropy: “Imagine the possibilities! Imagine a reality without entropy, that pesky tendency that everything seems to have to eventually gradually fall apart, die and decay.”

Therefore it seems vital, quite literally, that we recognize the difference between entropy and negentropy, and align ourselves accordingly.

the key to our resurrection

So i was thrilled to find this scientific confirmation in Dan Winter’s work, that this “fractal implosion” of bliss, is in fact negentropic. This means that yes, Eternity exists, and is real, and can manifest in this dimension. And that in fact, it is a fundamental, if not the fundamental component of our existence here. We ARE eternal beings, and our bliss process is the key to our resurrection, to the resurrection of the Christic capacity within each one of us.

The implications go on and on. With negentropy, the whole paradigm of death and decay and falling apart of everything, the centrifugal force, is counteracted. So this means that awakening and stewarding our bliss process is the single most important “thing” we could “do” for ourselves, AND the world. Yes, it looks like nothing, but that’s the paradox. It is everything.

So first, you resurrect your bliss process, and then it resurrects YOU, resurrects the Christ within you, so that you may lead a new life, the life eternal. And then it begins to work through you spontaneously on the world around you. And this is something really worth investigating, because for the first time, it means we can become truly and effortlessly effective here.

the bliss beyond bliss

I’d like to make some distinctions about bliss, at least in my experience, as i feel we need to sharpen our understanding of just what it is. Like i said, I feel that it is the root of the solution for our world, that each one of us be able to access, to resurrect, if you will, our own bliss process. But we’ve been sold a kind of starry eyed, rose colored glasses version of bliss that completely avoids its transformational fire. Hence, we may be missing what is right under our nose, because we are looking for something different.

First of all, my feeling is that the quality of the “experience” of bliss changes considerably when one graduates to a consistent connection with it, rather than something that one accesses only once in a while. Perhaps a better way to describe it is that moment when one’s “center of gravity” shifts, for good, to the constant awareness of oneself AS one’s essence, or pure Existence. Once again, this observation comes from my own direct “experience”. It could be argued, and probably has been, that it is actually a different kind of bliss, the “bliss beyond bliss”. Either way, in my view, there is a distinct difference. And this “bliss beyond bliss” is not about “getting high” or escaping in any way. On the contrary, it is Absolute Gravity, in the Eternal Here and Now.

inhabiting a lightning bolt

For someone who rarely has access to it, it can be an incredible relief from the self-contracted existence. We have a momentary glimpse into our eternal Nature, which can be a powerful experience that even if we cannot sustain it, we will certainly remember as a kind of milestone, and can give us the impetus we need to continue in the process of reconnecting and re-membering it. So it can feel intensely pleasurable, in contrast with the tight and limited perspective of the small and separate “self”.

However, once the bliss current awakens permanently in one, once it becomes one’s everyday reality, i’d like to suggest, that the quality of how one experiences it changes. Because in order to awaken the bliss current to a sustainable condition, one has to transcend oneself, and the whole world of opposites, including positive/negative, good/bad. And this is an ongoing, moment to moment process which can be very intense at times because the current can be relentless.

Whereas before, one can experience a momentary opening into bliss as a very “positive” experience, when one enters into the current as an ongoing state, now one no longer experiences it as positive or negative, or even as an experience. Could you call your True Nature, who and what you truly ARE, an experience? If anything, it is who or what is aware of experiencing AND participating actively in the creation, through the imagination.

A good analogy is that of electricity. Electricity by itself is neither good or bad, positive or negative (although it works in polarity), but it can be experienced in either way depending on the conditions. So embodying the bliss current is much like conducting an electrical current. In fact i think that this is not really a metaphor, but rather exactly what happens. Bliss is an electrical event, just as, we are beginning to notice, the entire universe is.

Dan Winter also refers to it as inhabiting a lightning bolt. Does that sound like something “pleasurable”?

“The day when we shall know exactly what “electricity” is, will chronicle an event probably greater, more important than any other recorded in the history of the human race.” ~Nikola Tesla

a continuous orgasm

So when one is in continuous union with this current, one can go through a myriad of interpretations of it, from intensely pleasurable to painful even. Another good analogy is that of an orgasm, which for most people is the closest to bliss that they can attain in this life. In orgasm, one dissolves in a kind of momentary death (petit mort in French) that is intensely pleasurable, but so much so that it also almost hurts as well. After all, it’s a death!

Imagine being in an orgasm constantly. Yes, pleasure, but also pain. The two merge in an enigmatic sensation that is often not what i would call enjoyable, in the conventional sense. It is beyond any description like that. You will find, that your attempts to describe it will circle around it, without ever being able to touch it.

So imagine trying to function in the world while in a constant orgasm. This is going to make some things very hard to do. Imagine going shopping at a mall, driving in traffic, walking through an intense city, or going to work, especially to a job you do not like, in a state of continuous orgasm. We are going to have to learn to function at a whole other level, and we are going to find that there are many things we used to do, that we just cannot do any more. And we are probably going to want to live in a natural and peaceful environment as much as possible. Eventually our “circuitry” adapts to it, but not without a complete overhaul of our life and priorities.

I believe this is part of the reason people are so afraid of truly accessing their bliss. To be sure, it will change everything about your life. If you have ever tried to interface with “the world”, i.e., everyday life, while on LSD or some other psychedelic, you can have some idea of the challenges. You have become super sensitive to “vibes”, you instantly see beneath the surface of people’s motives, you feel the energy behind phenomena, you feel the suffering of all, and you become very careful about who and what you expose yourself to. Because you see clearly, how the “world” is really set up to crush this impulse, rather than support it. You gradually begin to notice there is a war going on here.

ecstatic electricity

So, when bliss is not always available, we tend to make it into some kind of extraordinary state, a “positive” kind of “experience” that we can “have”, and later collect as a memory. And we can even turn that memory into a substitute for the bliss process altogether.

But when we become established in the bliss process, it slowly but surely erodes all sense of stability in the physical world, while at the same time reconnecting us with the true stability, that of Being itself. Once one starts to embody this stability, it can be felt in the body as absolute solidity, even a physically palpable kind of thickness or pressure, way more solid even than the physical “reality”. This is the bedrock of existence. Its solidity is eternal.

The electrical current finds its True Ground in a force field that is beyond solid. When this level of solidity begins to integrate into the body, the sense of being grounded can be nothing short of ecstatic.

passing through the eye of a needle

Remember, Sat-Chit-Ananda. Truth, existence, bliss, are all one and the same. Bliss is the very nature of our being, and inseparable from Truth itself. That’s why one cannot attain any kind of stability in bliss if one is in any way living a lie. Lies and bliss cannot coexist.

As Dan Winter so eloquently puts it, only “shareable ideas” can pass through the zero-point into infinity (this is my paraphrasing of Dan Winter, of course). Lies are not shareable ideas. They are not of the right frequency to embed into the bliss current, and if we cling to them, they will obstruct our passage through the Zero Point into the Infinite Genius of our True Nature. So, seems to me, step number one would be, to be honestespecially with yourself.

I believe this is the true meaning of Jesus’ saying about passing through the eye of a needle. One who hoards, and cannot share, will not be able to make this transition to blissful existence. it is really just physics, nothing mystical about it at all. The zero/infinity point at the center of the torus IS the eye of the needle. Only shareable ideas can pass through.

consensus nodes

Another thing to be aware of, and once again, this is from my own experience. As one “comes online” with the bliss current, one begins to notice that one is part of a network, and this network is increasing in power daily. I would call this being a “consensus node” in this network of supernal light, Conscious Light (as Adi Da calls it), (the “Organic Light” of the Gnostics,) that is being established here on Earth. It is to really become an “earth assistant” if you will. John Lash’s term for someone like this is from the Gnostics: Telestes: which means “one who is aimed”.

I borrowed this term “consensus node” from the blockchain, as i feel that blockchain technology is a kind of outer reflection of something new that is happening within us. In blockchain technology, all the computers on a network reach consensus nearly simultaneously, in other words, every computer on the network shows the exact same information, about any transaction. This is what makes it unhackable. There are several technologies being developed now, in which any user at home can host on their computer one of the “consensus nodes” on the blockchain, which means that their computer’s extra processing power can be used for the overall work of the network, as one of the nodes which comes to consensus with all the other nodes.

So when we connect with this bliss network we all automatically come into unhackable consensus with Life Itself. The Parasite has no access to this Domain. It is the best protection one can have. All those of us in the bliss process are on the same page, even though we are simultaneously unique individuals (Aquarius/Leo). It is an instant understanding, an intuitive consensus, that needs no outside confirmation.

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So what we notice, is that now we can allow our “processing power” to be used by the entire network, which is powering up the new vision, and resisting the archontic disruption of the web of life on earth. We can donate our consciousness to the pool, and it will expand exponentially. I believe this is why those of us who awaken can at times feel exhausted for no apparent reason. We are working on another level, processing the liberation of the planet within this radical (root) network, even while sleeping. But to someone who is not awakening their true potential, this idea can seem completely preposterous.

Once again, this is what i would call being “butterfly effective”.

In the past it used to be very few people working at this level. Hence the renunciates living in hermitage, working on humanity on an invisible level. Nowadays, with so many people beginning to awaken, the power of this network has gotten formidable, and it will only increase exponentially from here. That is my take on it, at least, for what it’s worth.

Kabir Das Sant

I want to give you an example of the butterfly effect. Could it be that the reason humanity has not destroyed itself yet, by nuclear war or whatever other catastrophe, is because of this man? Have a listen here, he starts around the 2 minute mark.

If you ask me to prove it is so, well, i would ask you to prove to me, that it is not so.  We’re still here, aren’t we? that’s my proof, what’s yours? 

This is how the butterfly effect works.

To the caterpillar, the butterfly effect seems impossible, but to the butterfly, it is obvious.

bliss is contagious

Another thing about bliss is that it is contagious. This is how Dan Winter has described it. Hence the tradition of Satsang, with a master who embodies it. The student can attune himself to the teacher/master, and then the spark can jump, the circuit can reconnect. I can attest to this in my own case. In only takes a moment of mutual recognition, as really it takes place outside of time.

But perhaps in an expanded and “enhanced” version of the student/teacher paradigm, we can explore the mutuality of respectful friendship as an equally valuable way to pass it on. If you can sit in silent communion with friends who have awakened the bliss current in themselves, then perhaps you can pick up the “knack” yourself. It is a matter of sympathetic resonance. And together with others, the current can be magnified exponentially.

Of course that is going to require your ability to discern and feel whether someone is in communion with this condition or not, which means you will have to already know it. And guess what: you do. In short, it takes one to know one. It takes oneness to know oneness. You will not receive anything from anyone else, this is in you already, and has to be awakened within YOU. It only need take a moment, if you are ripe. If not, it will take as long as it takes, if you believe in time.

It is like if you sing with others who sing in tune, perhaps you will sing in tune too. It is a matter of tuning yourself, like an instrument, and like a radio. Adjust the tuner, to receive the frequency, and then the communication. And when you begin vibrating in this frequency, then you become contagious too. And this is Satsang, the company of Truth. Good Company. Be with those who raise your vibration into one of bliss, because they exist there already.

true bliss (ananda) is not an emotional state

But don’t be fooled by the incomplete version of bliss. It is not a “positive emotion”. It is not an emotion at all, and is beyond positive or negative. It is not a “peak experience”, except before it becomes the established condition in which you live. it is not about “feeling good”, “blissed out”, or comfortable, or “having fun”, it is about becoming 100% real. It is often unbearable. There is no comfort per se in it, or discomfort for that matter, unless and until you can become comfortable with free falling through space. Eventually you will be able to relax and conduct this kind of force, but it takes the body some time to understand how to exist in this way, as it is so radically new.

The way i see it, bliss has nothing to do with self-indulgent pleasure, although it can be intensely pleasurable at times. It is more a responsibility. If you want to see the world made whole, you will, sooner or later, have to engage yourself in this process, which is, at its root, self-sacrifice, and self-transcendence.

And then, once attention is free, wherever you put your attention is made whole.

We will gradually recalibrate to it, and the entire experience of being in body will radically change. This is still pretty much uncharted territory, a whole new world of possibility.

I would also like to stress that, at least in my experience, this is an actual psycho-physical process, that is palpably felt (often very intensely) even at a physical level. It is way more than just an “attitude” or a “mindset”. In fact, it ends up obliterating all “mindsets” in pure primal Radiance without qualifications. That is why just reading about it in a book is unlikely to bring about the requisite transformation. It requires you to do the difficult work of radical self-undoing, whatever it takes.

These are just some more of my observations in the continuity of awakening. It is a never ending process of initiations, into higher, more refined frequencies, which will eventually even release us from the need to inhabit a physical vehicle. But while we are here, let’s live the physical world with such depth and sensitivity, that it transforms from a prison into a prism.

Crossing the threshold is the first step into the new reality, in which our siddhis, our superpowers, begin to awaken. This is when the actual “fun” begins. We then see that it is endless, this unfolding into multi-dimensional being, and that the learning will never stop, even when we pass beyond the need for physical incarnation.

The following email came from a reader who brought up some very important concerns about Donald Trump and his role in fighting for justice on behalf of women (combating sex trafficking, for example) and taking down the Deep State. I thought that it would be worthwhile to publish my response to this email since I thought that many readers may have similar concerns and questions, and Sharine graciously consented. Below, I have broken up her email into several sections so I can respond one section at a time, but please note that her words were all sent in a single email:

Hi Richard!

My name is Sharine and I am fairly new (summer 2018) to the Collective Evolution site. I became a member last month.

Today, I read your article “Many Insiders Believe Military Tribunals For Deep State Will Happen Any Time Now,” and I have some questions and concerns that you may or may not have time to address, but I feel compelled to share anyway!

First, I feel that I grasp a basic understanding of the Deep State, mostly from reading on CE and watching both David Wilcock’s “Disclosure” interview and Joe Martino’s video about the illusion and the cycle of the cabal in politics.

Second, I want to disclose that I am a cis-gender female survivor of sexual assault at the age of 52, sexual harassment throughout my whole life, and an attempted rape at the age of 15. This is important to my concerns.

That said, here goes:

Why would enlightened beings set up our world so that men as hideous as Donald J. Trump and possibly Brett Kavanaugh would be the people I am to trust to take down the Deep State and begin to cripple the cabal?

R: First off, the contention that Donald J. Trump is ‘hideous’ is a matter of opinion, and when you say ‘possibly’ Brett Kavanaugh, I take you to mean he is ‘possibly’ hideous (rather than ‘possibly’ someone you should trust). Nonetheless, let’s focus on Trump for this question: is it likely that Donald Trump has had sex with prostitutes, been unfaithful with partners, acted and spoke in a ‘macho’ way at times, lied in business and in relationships, cheated on his taxes and otherwise did many unethical and illegal things in business? Yes. Some people may feel this makes him hideous, fair enough. But we have to look at the context.

In the article you read, we were discussing a Deep State that indulges in sex and slave trafficking, human mind-control and experimentation, the sexual abuse, torture and murder of children, as well as war, genocide and mass disease creation in the world. Assuming, as I do, that Donald Trump does not do any of these things, and his greatest crimes are those mentioned above, then if we call him hideous then have we left ourselves with any proportionate adjective to describe perpetrators within the Deep State?

To your main question about enlightened beings, who I take to refer to higher-dimensional positive beings that are fostering human evolution from a higher density, I would say: Why not Donald Trump? If it were some kind of perfect Jesus-type character, would we not feel somewhat disconnected from any positive actions that would be brought, and simply have a new idol to follow? True, some people do idolize Trump, but that is the unhelpful extreme in the other direction, because we have to move past idolatry and see ourselves as all being in this struggle together, each having to acknowledge our own darkness and inadequacies while not giving up our push towards enlightenment. In having a fallible, flawed person leading the charge to take down the Deep State, we may not have an ‘inspiring’ leader at the helm, but it becomes much easier to look past him and see the takedown of the Deep State as the fruits of the collective efforts of thousands, if not tens of thousands of patriotic men and women of integrity, an effort ultimately grounded in the collective consciousness of humanity as a whole.

I want the demise as much as any loving human, but that’s a big, nasty, jagged, bright “red pill” to swallow. It’s like saying it’s okay that Trump is an admitted sexual assaulter and racist, misogynistic homophobe but it’s not okay that Clinton turned a blind eye to sex trafficking (or whatever it is CE claims about her) because he’s going to save the day.

R: I would challenge your assertion as ‘fact’ that Trump is an ‘admitted sexual assaulter.’ I don’t think Trump has ever admitted to being a sexual assaulter. As far as being a racist, misogynistic homophobe: I haven’t seen any evidence that Trump is either a racist or a homophobe. Is he misogynistic? A misogynist is defined as “a person who dislikes, despises, or is strongly prejudiced against women.” I don’t get the impression that Trump is this way at all. Certainly, he may have long been an egocentric, macho, privileged white male who puts himself above woman, but I believe this stems from personal insecurity rather than an actual hatred.

Whether or not you have to be ‘okay’ with who Donald Trump actually is, is your own personal matter. You don’t have to be ‘okay’ with Donald Trump in order to want the Deep State taken down, even if you do believe as we do that Trump is serving a role (certainly not leading) this takedown. In the bigger picture, though, our destiny as human beings is to be ‘okay’ with whatever IS, with the TRUTH, and seek not to resist the truth, but fight against those whose agenda is to hide the truth.

Which brings us to Hillary Clinton. I have to say that personally I am ‘okay’ with Hillary Clinton, because as a matter of spiritual practice I believe that everything is as it should be in our world for the evolution of humanity to be served. That said, I strongly believe that revealing the truth about who Hillary Clinton is will serve that evolution, and if this truth is revealed then it will be plain as day that she needs to be removed from our society. It is only because of the immense power of the Deep State that Hillary Clinton is not in jail right now.

If the Deep State was not protecting her, you or I could have her indicted on several crimes simply based on the information that’s in the public domain, let alone the hordes of more sensitive information that is hidden. Just off the top of my head, evidence is out there demonstrating that she allowed diplomats to be killed at the Benghazi embassy because they were beginning to resist the gun trafficking operation there, leaked confidential information on an illegal private server to China which led to the death or incarceration of at least a dozen CIA officers embedded there, illegally took over the Democratic National Committee in order to defeat Bernie Sanders who otherwise would have won the nomination, was involved in (not necessarily ‘running’) a pedophilia operation in Washington, and is highly implicated in the staggering number of murders of people who were investigating the Clinton Foundation, which itself is well known to be linked to illegal activities.

Didn’t Clinton inspire women and men all across the USA to stand for things like universal healthcare and other good stuff, while Trump inspires hatred and anger?

R: Clinton may have inspired some women and men in her rise to power as a woman in American politics, but I don’t believe she cared about inspiring people except to the point that it got her elected and gave her power. There are many women in politics who fight for the truth and are positive role models, such as Cynthia McKinney and Tulsi Gabbard, whom I have written about. To equate supporters of Clinton as supporters of women and non-supporters of Clinton (or supporters of Trump) as non-supporters of women is one of the most egregious and sinister points of perception that has been carefully crafted by mainstream media, and easy to fall prey to. Plain and simple, I believe Hillary Clinton is a modern-day Lady Macbeth. I believe her whole public face is an act and a deception, that she is part of the Deep State and guilty of some of the most horrific crimes imaginable to humanity, including the sexual abuse, torture, and murder of children.

As for Trump inspiring hatred and anger, it is important to observe that since Trump came into office intent on helping a huge alliance of patriots take down the Deep State, all the Deep State flunkies in politics, Hollywood, and mainstream media have done is everything they can to invoke anger and hatred upon him. Earlier in his presidency, there were over half a dozen celebrities who all suddenly tried to seed the idea of Trump getting killed into the minds of people (you’ll recall the Kathy Griffin photo below among others). Who is truly inspiring anger and hatred here? If you can separate Donald Trump from the campaign to demonize him that has been relentless and ongoing through mainstream media, you may find that Donald Trump himself is not inspiring as much hatred and anger as it seems.

Isn’t the cabal in existence to restrict and eventually deny freedom and well-being for women, vulnerable populations, the poor, the Earth itself and its inhabitants?

R: They are not in existence to restrict and deny freedom as such, but only to the extent that it serves our evolution. That is why their ultimate plans of world domination will fail. From the point of view of the higher realms, when it gets to the point that the cabal no longer serves our evolution, then it is time for them to disband. But their disbanding is not going to happen if we stay asleep as a collective. Humanity must act, and take back its power through an awakening of consciousness.

I guess what I’m saying is, the physical world matters, too, so why would the forces of light and love in the Universe demand that I overlook abuse and corruption by one person, but not another? I’m confused.

R: I agree that the physical world matters too. The forces of light and love are not asking you to overlook one thing and not another; there is no need to overlook the ‘truth’ about either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, but rather to separate the ‘truth’ from the propaganda and deception. In a way, it is a good practice of consciousness to embrace some ambiguity, because human life is filled with ambiguity and we need to embrace it rather than gravitating towards one polarity or the other. The idea that Donald Trump is a deeply flawed man who has done things in his past that would not endear him to women, and the idea that in his current position of considerable power he would like to do what he can for the freedom, safety, and standing of women in society are not mutually exclusive statements. There’s ambiguity, but not contradiction.

It seems to me that this premise is asking me to dismiss the very real-world fact that my teenage brother’s best friend tried to rape me in my own home, when what he did was wrong. His negative energy caused darkness in the Universe, just as it is wrong for Trump to openly mock a disabled person, and a woman who claims to have been sexually assaulted, and a female reporter who was simply asking him a question, and on and on.

R: It’s important to notice where you may be building a chain of assumptions on a flawed premise. You use the word ‘dismiss’ here, and nobody is asking you to dismiss something real that happened to you. You have the freedom to hold its ‘wrongness’ for the rest of your life. That being said, your only hope of healing from this event will be through forgiveness, and rising above the power you may still be giving to this event. I recently interviewed Anneke Lucas, a survivor of the horrors of Satanic ritual and sexual abuse within an elite Belgian pedophile network between the ages of 6 and 11. In the interview she is beautifully able to express and exemplify the need for forgiveness and acceptance in a healing process that is anything but a ‘dismissal’ of the experiences she went through. CE will be broadcasting this 4-hour interview in November and it may be one of the best and most elegant explorations into the healing process available for women who have been sexually abused.

In terms of the wrongness of things that Trump does, like openly mock a disabled person (which seems to have been presented out of context by mainstream media, but no matter) it is important to make a distinction between condoning and accepting. By standing firm in your principles you do not condone those acts which go against those principles, and when it is something that is directed at you personally it is important to take actions that appropriately show that you do not condone such behavior. However, to not accept that it happened, (whether it involves Trump openly mocking a woman who has been sexually assaulted, or your brother’s best friend’s attempted rape) by continuing to be angry and upset about it, or feeling that punishment needs to be meted out in order for you to let go of the power it has over you, is self-defeating. When you hold Trump’s words and actions to have emotional power over you, that is what you are doing.

Are you saying that disabled people ought to be made fun of? That Dr. Blasey Ford and Kavanaugh’s other accusers — and women like me — are lying? That women should be “negged”? That taking away a woman’s right to care for her own body is a good thing? Because I don’t know how this is light and love on any plane of existence. And if it is, can’t we also say that the cabal is okay, too? War is peace? Hatred is love? Rape is consent?

R: Of course I am not saying that disabled people ought to be made fun of. Having said that, I truly believe our course of action as evolving individuals is to work towards a greater sense of self so that we become immune to insults and slights. In my article ‘Let’s Discard The ‘Right’ To Be Insulted By Free Speech,’ I make the point that being insulted or made fun of does not say anything substantial about us, it only says something about the person saying the insult. Each of us having this clear perception is what will virtually put an end to ‘disrespectful’ speech.

Putting yourself in the same group as Dr. Blasey Ford and Kavanaugh’s other accusers is a dangerous leap, as it shows how you may be projecting your story onto other people and then suffering when they are not being believed. Do I think Dr. Blasey Ford and Kavanaugh’s other accusers are lying? On the strength of the evidence I’ve seen, yes. Either lying or having had their minds tampered with. Do I think you are lying? No. There is ample evidence and reasons to believe that Kavanaugh’s accusers were brought forward by Deep State forces to created a narrative out of either sketchy or even non-existent memories. There is no reason for you to lie and no reason for me to doubt you.

I assume I don’t need to answer whether I think women should be “negged” or whether taking away a woman’s right to care for her own body is a good thing. As far as us saying the cabal is okay? Yes, at the highest level we must accept that they are here to play a role in our evolution. And having said that, our evolution is now hinging on our capacity to defeat them and remove them from power. And that includes rejecting their Orwellian Doublespeak perception-benders like ‘War is peace,’ ‘Hatred is love,’ ‘Rape is consent’ and use our discernment of the falseness of these slogans to lead us to the truth.

And in the end, then, what are we working toward, if not for true peace and love on our shared home, Earth?

R: True peace and love on Earth is certainly our goal, but in a deeper sense our goal is evolving towards that by choice, rather than having it given to us. Otherwise, we would have stayed in the Garden of Eden and not eaten from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. I wrote a 7-part series on Lucifer that goes into this matter in much greater depth. In our journey back to love and peace, then, the darkness is our ally, and helps us return to unity with greater freedom, and a greater ability to create a future world in our highest shared image.

Thanks for your consideration. I won’t bother you again!

Sincerely,

Sharine

Dear Sharine, thank you for your honest and heart-felt questions and the opportunity to respond to them. The time and space I have had to answer your questions is limited, and it’s difficult to say things in writing that are better served in a one-on-one conversation. I sincerely hope that I have not missed the nuance of some of your points, nor that I appear to be marginalizing the suffering that you have gone through in your life. I believe the healing of women who have suffered abuse at the hands of men will be one of the pre-eminent beacons for our collective evolution.

I wish you all the best of healing, light, and learning in this journey we are sharing together.

Richard

The Takeaway

It is important for each one of us to recognize when we are making assumptions that deviate from the truth, and thus lead to incorrect conclusions. Our battle is not truly a political one, though it is manifesting in the political arena. Our battle is one of consciousness. There is no need to hoist any particular person in the public eye into the role of ‘savior,’ or dismiss their human flaws in order to get behind their efforts to bring about the revelation of truth.

Our own awakening to the truth that lies beyond false perceptions is how we must participate. And part of this awakening involves acknowledging our pain, both our individual pain and our collective trauma, and recognizing our part of the responsibility in how we create and maintain this pain within ourselves. The brave act of healing, founded on forgiveness and a simple acceptance of that which is, inevitably will help us see the truth more easily and naturally, and will ground us in the creation of  a life of ‘true peace and love on our shared home, Earth.’

The modern-day food industry seems to pay no attention to health. Thankfully, global consciousness is shifting in several ways including how we live as humans, view our health, our economy, education, politics, and the environment. You could say that humanity is going through one MASSIVE change.

Today, billions of animals in the United States alone are raised, tortured, and slaughtered for human consumption. This reckless production and consumption, in turn, has created enormous environmental and health problems that continue to accelerate. That being said, awareness on this issue (food) in particular, has come along way. We are seeing changes in the food guide, a shift towards plant-based diets, and more corporations catering to new choices people are making around food and health. This is a good thing!

One common trend helping to create change is the continues ‘bad press’ unhealthy players in the food industry are getting.

The latest news to come out regarding food quality within fast food comes from a report recently released by six major consumer and environmental groups. They graded America’s 25 largest burger chains and their use of antibiotics in their beef supply.

22 popular fast food restaurants completely failed, including giants like McDonald’s, Burger King, Sonic and In-N-Out.  The evaluation looked at each chain’s antibiotic use policies and whether these policies were truly implemented in their product. They also examined how transparent the chains were with their antibiotic use.

See the full list below.

The Problem With Antibiotic Use

Antibiotics given to farm animals can lead to antibiotic-resistant bacteria, among other things. This is actually one of the top threats to global public health, which is exemplified by the fact that each year, more than 2 million Americans alone suffer from these infections.

In September 1999, Albrecht and Schutte published “Homeopathy Versus Antibiotics in Metaphylaxis of Infectious Diseases: A Clinical Study in Pig Fattening and Its Significance to Consumers” in Alternative Therapies. The study compared outcomes for four randomly assigned groups of pigs that were given placebo, homeopathic treatment, a standard blend of antibiotics and other conventional drugs in a routine low prophylactic dose, or conventional drugs in a high therapeutic dose.

There were 1440 pigs involved in the study, which took place at an intensive livestock farm in Germany. The primary outcome measured was the incidence of respiratory disease, a common problem for pigs on such farms.

The results were astounding.

Homeopathic treatment was far superior to prophylactic doses of antibiotics in preventing respiratory disease. The prophylactic antibiotic treatment made it only 11 percent less likely (than placebo) that the pigs would become sick. But homeopathic remedies made it 40 percent less likely. When the antibiotics were raised to therapeutic levels, meaning a level that is only given when people or an animal was sick, it became 70 percent less likely that the pigs would become diseased.

The significance of this is that homeopathic treatment on animals would already be better than routine antibiotic treatment. When an animal is actually sick, the farmer would then have the choice to increase homeopathic or use a legitimately high-level dose of antibiotics. This, significantly less cost and significantly fewer antibiotics in meat.

The Takeaway

Simple, avoid fast food. There are many out there who seem to believe that people will always consume this food, but we fail to recognize that it’s not just our choice. The “food” these corporations offer is highly addictive to people, and that’s done on purpose.

If we can connect with caring about our health, quality of life and well-being of animals and the planet, these are places you must steer away from. In general, eating meat does not support the health and wellbeing of us nor animals, but this is a choice we each make.

Is magic real? That depends on how you define it, but yes, I believe ‘magic’ is definitely real, and I’m clearly not the only one. Cases of ‘supernormal’ powers and ‘magic’ of all kinds have been reported throughout history and across almost all cultures–at least until religion was invented and these topics were ushered into the realm of the ‘demonic.’ Proponents of what we now call ‘magic’  include nearly all ancient literature from all parts of the world, from the Vedic texts and the yoga sutras, all the way to Moses, Jesus, Milarepa and Mohammed. Donald Lopez Jr., a professor of Buddhist and Tibetan Studies and the University of Michigan provides a great example in describing the Buddha:

With this enlightenment, he was believed to possess all manner of supernormal powers, including full knowledge of each of his own past lives and those of other beings, the ability to know others’ thoughts, the ability to create doubles of himself, the ability to rise into the air and simultaneously shoot fire and water from his body…Although he passed into nirvana at the age of eighty-one, he could have lived “for an aeon or until the end of the aeon” if only he had been asked to do so. (source)

The crazy thing is there are also modern day examples, but they mostly come from the black budget government programs. In 2016, I published a well-sourced article providing multiple examples from a CIA document that confirms the existence of humans with ‘special abilities’ who are able to do ‘impossible’ things. You can access that here.

‘Real Magic’

A book recently published by the Chief Scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences, Dean Radin, entitled “Real Magic” has received some great reviews. The main premise is the idea that a hidden power resides within every single human being, a power tied to our consciousness, a power that makes phenomena like psychokinesis, remote viewing, and precognition not only possible but something that will perhaps one day be a normal part of all our lives. The book offers a vision of a scientifically informed magic and explains why magic will play a key role in the frontiers of science.

This falls into the realm of a field of study called non-material science. Nikola Tesla was a huge proponent of this, as he had said that the day humanity begins to study this subject matter is the day that humanity will advance at an exponential rate.

Far From “Pseudoscience”

Dr. Carl Jung once stated, “I shall not commit the fashionable stupidity of regarding everything I cannot explain as a fraud.” This is something we should all hold in our minds as we examine this or other claims that are not part of our current perception.

The amount of statistically significant results when it comes to this reality, usually dubbed as “parapsychology,” is very significant. We are talking about hundreds, if not thousands of studies that have been conducted worldwide for decades.

There seems to be a deep concern that the whole field will be tarnished by studying a phenomenon that is tainted by its association with superstition, spiritualism and magic. Protecting against this possibility sometimes seems more important than encouraging scientific exploration or protecting academic freedom. But this may be changing. Cassandra Vieten, PhD and President/CEO at the Institute of Noetic Sciences (source)

A lot of the statistical results for parapsychology are just as strong, if not in some cases more significant, than a lot of the results which emerge from hard sciences, like physics and mechanical engineering. The Department of Defense has stated that results in this area are a clear sign that these phenomena are real, despite the fact that they are still somewhat unexplainable. As far back as 1999, a statistics professor even published a paper showing the results dealing with parapsychology and mind-body connection are a lot stronger than the results used to approve some of our medications. That study was done by Dr. Jessica Utts, as statistics professor in California who had this to say about Radin’s book:

Real Magic illustrates the limitations of 20th century science and proposes a more comprehensive view that incorporates ideas that have been associated with magic throughout the ages. Blending history, humor, and plausible hypotheses, Dean Radin illustrates that there is a staggering amount of evidence for a broader view of science that offers hope for the future of humanity.” 

Another review:

“A thought-provoking book. The author makes a convincing case for the reality and significance of magic.” —Brian Josephson, Nobel Laureate in Physics and Emeritus Professor of Physics, University of Cambridge

Today, hundreds of scientists are coming together to emphasize that matter is not the only reality. They’ve created a manifesto, and you can find links and access more information about this initiative, which started a few years ago, in an article we published here.

“Some scientists are confident that we already know what is and is not possible. But the truth is that science is very much in its infancy. To advance our understanding requires bold excursions into domains some might consider heretical, including esoteric legends about magic that have persisted for thousands of years. This is what Dean Radin sets out to do with Real Magic. In my judgment, it succeeds in blazing new trails. Well worth the read.”  Kary Mullis PhD, Nobel Laureate (Chemistry)

The Global Elite Use Magic

While talking about magic in this sense, it’s also important to mention the global elite, and the idea that they also use metaphysical/magical ‘knowing’ and concepts. Unfortunately, they do so not for the joy of discovery, or from a place of good intention, but from a selfish, egoic place, a place that is in service to self, and not in service to others. This is a big point to consider when discussing whether humanity needs to take down the global elite in order to evolve. You can read more about my thoughts regarding magic and the global elite in the article ‘How Some of The World’s Elite Use Black Magic Rituals To Conjure Up Entities For More Power.’

I believe that as human consciousness evolves and we become more aware of who we are, and our capabilities, we will also realize that love, compassion, and empathy are all needed for us to thrive. Once we completely grasp this, I believe, these ‘abilities’ that lay dormant within us will begin to show themselves more and more.

The Takeaway

The takeaway here is to keep in open mind, and to recognize that what we think we know is always subject to change. Sometimes these things take a while, even if a sufficient amount of evidence has been provided. This type of study opens up new understandings about the nature of our reality, and would change ‘science’ and the current laws that govern it forever. Non-material science truly represents the next scientific revolution.

What if we all put down our masks? What if we agreed, that there would be no more disguises? What if we allowed each other to be our authentic self? Imagine the effect on Instagram. It boggles the mind.

Too many people believe the content uploaded on social media is actually showing us truth. Far from it. The material chosen to be uploaded to Facebook, or liked on Instagram, bears little resemblance to true life. Each photo has been carefully chosen after taking a mind-numbing series of retakes.

Each photo must be meticulously studied to ensure the subject looks nothing like the real thing. After all, the real thing isn’t going to garner followers. No one uploads pictures of themselves returning bottles to the beer store in their slippers, or cleaning out the kitty litter. Followers equate to love. More follower = more love.

We are terrified that people will see our true self and our mundane lives won’t be nearly glamorous enough. So we take 12 pictures before deciding one is good enough.

Note to selfie: Make sure you extend your arms and snap the picture from above. You must be looking up. You will look younger. Social media doesn’t like wrinkles … bad skin … or skinny lips.

“Before I started being body positive on Instagram I would’ve posted the photo on the left (sucking in my tummy as much as possible) and said something along the lines of ‘gained a bit of fat this week’ when in reality, what I look relaxed currently is like the photo on the right.”

The harm that has been done to our psyche is profound. Apparently, the psyche is quite gullible. It does believe the stories shown on social media are true. So our psyche starts putting on some pretty outlandish masks to keep up with the Jones’ psyche. It is a constant challenge to keep up with the Joneses. The Joneses can’t even keep up with Joneses. No one can. It’s a sucker’s game.

What is the result of wearing a mask? – depression, anxiety, frustration, shame. The “Mask-Wearer” knows it’s not true. And they are terrified of being found out. Imagine the fear of being outed as a fraud. And more unsettling is this; if someone falls for that mask you’ve been wearing, don’t believe they’ve fallen for you. They are enamoured with the mask: the image. And the image isn’t real.

Let’s bring a Revolution of Real. Put down the mask. And promise yourself that you will never be anything other than your most authentic self. Masks wear very thin, very fast. Authentic beauty lasts forever.

Halloween has adapted over the ages from once being an ancient Celtic celebration of Samhain (marking the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter or the “darker half” of the year) to being ‘Christianized’ in the west as a time that begins the three day observance of All Saints’ Eve (Halloween), All Saints’ Day (All Hallows’) and All Souls’ Day, that dates between October 31st to November 2nd. This trifecta is a time intended to remember the dead, including martyrs, saints, and all faithful departed Christians.

Of course today, most in society have strayed far from the intended traditional sense of the day to a more commercialized, fun having approach.

We now choose to participate in Halloween as a family friendly time, dressing up and going door-to-door in our neighbourhood and accepting candy, otherwise known as trick or treating. Aside from the chemicals laden in the candies that are dished out, this time of the year can be pretty harmless for a child, given they are accompanied by an adult and not trotting around in a dangerous area.

Times, Laws, & Guidelines For Halloween in Hampton Roads Virginia

HrScrene is a website considered to be a hub for the people who reside in the Hampton Roads area in Virginia that keeps residents up to date on any happenings in local cities or important information news and even information. Earlier this month, hrScene notified Virginia of the local guidelines that residents are expected to abide by on the night of Halloween.

Each of the nine city’s guidelines explicitly state that no child above the age of 12 is allowed to participate in trick or treating and that no child can trick-or-treat after 8pm. A child of 13 years of age is allowed to accompany a ‘younger child’ but cannot participate in anything remotely similar to trick or treating, including dressing up if you’re living in Newport News,

Sec. 28-5. – Prohibited trick-or-treat activities.

(a) If any person beyond the seventh grade of school or over twelve (12) years of age shall engage in the activity commonly known as “trick or treat” or any other activity of similar character or nature under any name whatsoever, such person shall be guilty of a Class 4 misdemeanor. Nothing herein shall be construed as prohibiting any parent, guardian or other responsible person having lawfully in his custody a child twelve (12) years old or younger, from accompanying such child who is playing “trick or treat” for the purpose of caring for, looking after or protecting such child. However, no accompanying parent or guardian shall wear a mask of any type.

In Portsmouth, if any child under the age of 12 is out trick-or-treating after 8pm, they can be guilty of a class 3 misdemeanor, a fine of not more than $500, while most of the other city’s will delve out a class 4 misdemeanor, a fine of no more than $250.

(b) If any person shall engage in the activity commonly known as “trick or treat” or any name whatsoever after 8:00 p.m., he shall be guilty of a class 3 misdemeanor.

In the City of Hampton, on the night of October 31st, if you’re under the age of 18 it is considered unlawful to be out past 10pm an in some cases 11pm.

It shall be unlawful for any person under the age of fourteen (14) years to be present on any street, road, alley, avenue, park or other public place in the city, or in any vehicle operating or parked thereon, between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m., unless accompanied by his/her parent or guardian or unless such minor is on an emergency errand or legitimate business directed by his parent or guardian or is engaged in a lawful employment or going directly to the place of such employment or returning directly to his place of residence from the place of such employment.

It shall be unlawful for any person over the age of thirteen (13) years but under the age of eighteen (18) years to be present on any street, road, alley, avenue, park or other public place in the city, or in any vehicle operating or parked thereon, between the hours of 11 p.m. and 5 a.m., unless accompanied by his/her parent or guardian or unless such minor is on an emergency errand or legitimate business directed by his parent or guardian or is engaged in a lawful employment or going directly to the place of such employment or returning directly to his place of residence from the place of such employment.

Perhaps one of the worst city codes is that of Chesapeake, if you’re over 12 years old and/or 12 years old and still trick or treating after 8pm, you can potentially be confined in jail for up to six months.

Sec. 46-8. – Trick-or-treat activities. (a) If any person over the age of 12 years shall engage in the activity commonly known as “trick or treat” or any other activity of similar character or nature under any name whatsoever, he or she shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and shall be punished by a fine of not less than $25.00 nor more than $100.00 or by confinement in jail for not more than six months or both.

(b) If any person shall engage in the activity commonly known as “trick or treat” or any other activity of similar character or nature under any name whatsoever after 8:00 p.m., he or she shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and shall be punished by a fine of not less than $10.00 nor more than $100.00 or by confinement in jail for not more than 30 days or both.

Will This Actually Be Implemented?

Naturally, this information has a lot of parents and other young adults rearing in confusion. Since when was a 13 year old not considered a child, or even a 16 year old for that matter? Who decided that it was unacceptable for young people to participate in the most known Halloween tradition of trick or treating?

In my first year of college, a friend and I decided that instead of going to a party the night of Halloween, that we could instead go trick or treating. We threw together some form of a costume and trotted from door to door and were always met with happiness. We assumed this was because we were adults, not a likely sight to see on a doorstep reciting, “trick or treat!”

In none of the codes does it include what would happen in a scenario where a teenager with an intellectual or developmental disability went trick or treating. It also doesn’t mention whether a minor is expected to have a form of ID on them. Does this put children at risk of being interrogated and being fearful of law enforcement rather than allowing for a child to get a sense of community by witnessing their town coming together to celebrate Halloween?

Law enforcement of York County assured a mother who recently moved to the area that they will not be arresting anyone the night of Halloween, further confirming the lunacy of these laws.

I decided to question why these laws would be implemented to begin with. Virginia does fall into the ‘Bible Belt’ an “informal region in the Southern United States in which socially conservative evangelical Protestantism plays a strong role in society and politics. Christian church attendance across these denominations are generally higher than the nation’s average,” according to Wikipedia’s definition. Christians seem to be divided when it comes to whether or not they should celebrate Halloween,  but Thessalonians explicitly states,

Abstain from all appearance of evil.

And then I thought to myself, well, perhaps these areas are considered ‘unsafe’ and known for teenagers wreaking havoc on the night of October 31st.

According to the article These Are The 10 Most Dangerous Cities In Virginia For 2019, published October 11th 2018, 3 of the 9 cities enforcing these laws (Portsmouth, Norfolk, Newport News) are considered ‘dangerous’. The basis of criteria they used to determine which city was most dangerous was violent crimes per capita and property crimes per capita.

Portsmouth made the top of the list by being number 1 with property crimes and number 2 with violent crimes. But when it comes to the night of Halloween, the worst they’ll give out to a child trick treating after 8pm or one trick or treating over the age of 12 is a class 3 misdemeanour.

The worst penalty, in my opinion, is that of the city of Chesapeake. The law suggests a child could actually go to jail if they don’t abide by the codes being enforced which would lead me to assume it’s probably not a safe place to live except that this article, Is Chesapeake Virginia A Safe Place To Live? actually uses the word ‘boring’ to describe the nature of the town, or more so, fighting that notion.

The Takeaway

The issue isn’t so much about these ordinances but rather what route our youth are being led to. Media today is exposing our children to a world that is hyper-sexualized and overtly emotional. The internet often pokes fun at millennials with memes giving examples of how awkward they were when they were 12 or 14, and how today’s youth is skipping that stage and going right into adulthood.

We don’t have to look hard to see how the innocence of a child is being hijacked by societal ‘norms.’ These codes being enforced is alarming because it’s exposing how obvious this governmental objective truly is. Should we have to fight for children to be children? Halloween is just the beginning and it’s up to us on whether not we’d like to participate in the robbing of our children’s innocence.

Not long ago, school groundskeeper Dewayne Johnson became involved in the very first lawsuit to go to trial alleging glyphosate causes cancer. The case made global headlines when the jury at San Francisco’s Superior Court of California deliberated for three days before finding that Monsanto had failed to warn Johnson and other consumers of the cancer risks posed by its weed killers. We’ve seen the same issue with similar substances like DDT, which was sprayed for years before it was finally banned decades ago. The unfortunate thing is that DDT is still highly present in the environment and in our soil, and is a catalyst for many diseases. Are we seeing the same thing with Glyphosate?

The court ended up awarding $39 million in compensation and $250 million in punitive damages. It’s also vital to mention that Monsanto, now a unit of Bayer AG following a $62.5 billion acquisition by the German conglomerate, faces more than 5,000 similar lawsuits across the United States.

Grounds For Reversal?

Now, just two months after jurors made the decision in favor of Johnson, who is dying of cancer, the judge suddenly has an issue with the amount and might overrule the decision. Again, Johnson is one of the thousands of cancer patients that are taking Monsanto to trial. The judge is apparently calling for a new trial, and she has now granted Monsanto a request for a JNOW on a tentative basis. A JNOW is a judgement notwithstanding the verdict. This is basically when a judge in a civil case overrules the jury’s decision.

This is extremely confusing, isn’t it? What prompted the judge to do this, and did Monsanto have anything to do with it? And even if the judge denies Monsanto’s request to drop the $250 million fine, the Court would grant a new trial on the grounds of ‘insufficiency of evidence’ to justify the award for punitive damages–this after the evidence was found to be quite sufficient at the time.

Even the jurors are speaking out, according to CTV news:

Jurors who found that agribusiness giant Monsanto’s Roundup weed killer contributed to a school groundskeeper’s cancer are urging a San Francisco judge not to throw out the bulk of their $289 million award in his favour, a newspaper reported Monday.

Stock Drop

Shares in Bayer, which bought Monsanto as mentioned earlier, dropped immediately after the original decision and hasn’t risen since. It’s still trading at approximately 30 percent below its pre-verdict value. The statement given by Bayer after the initial decision does its best to restore confidence in their product:

The jury’s decision is wholly at odds with over 40 years of real-world use, an extensive body of scientific data and analysis…which support the conclusion that glyphosate-based herbicides are safe for use and do not cause cancer in humans. (source)

This statement strongly goes against the statements made by thousands of scientists across the world.

“It is commonly believed that Roundup is among the safest pesticides… Despite its reputation, Roundup was by far the most toxic among the herbicides and insecticides tested. This inconsistency between scientific fact and industrial claim may be attributed to huge economic interests, which have been found to falsify health risk assessments and delay health policy decisions.” – R. Mesnage et al., Biomed Research International, Volume 2014 (2014) article ID 179691

Keep in mind that the use of glyphosate rose 1500% from 1995 to 2005, and that 100 million pounds of glyphosate is used every year on more than a billion acres. (Cherry, B., “GM crops increase herbicide use in the United States,” Science in Society 45, 44-46, 2010) (source)

Years Of Activism

The alarming thing is that for decades, scientists, activist groups and environmental/health awareness groups have been creating awareness and presenting the science explaining how and why Monsanto’s glyphosate (the main ingredient in their Roundup herbicide) causes cancer, among other diseases. Despite the fact that this has been happening for years, the political stranglehold these corporations have on governmental regulatory agencies has prevented this information from being taken seriously.

If the truth was widely known it would result in an unfathomable drop in profit for Monsanto’s products which contain glyphosate, but mostly in North America. Many countries have completely banned the ingredient and other Monsanto products, due to clear links to diseases like cancer and kidney disease, for example. In fact, most of the products manufactured by Monsanto and other giant North American biotech companies are completely banned and illegal in many other countries.

It makes you wonder how such a substance can go through the review process, whatever it is, and still be approved for use. Monsanto has been sued many times; in fact one lawsuit unearthed documents showing how Monsanto misled regulators and scientists to speed up approval for the development of genetically modified foods. You can read more about that here. So, the science itself becomes subject to fraud when power and money are applied. Roundup herbicide is over one hundred times more toxic than regulators claim. And a new study published in the journal Biomedical Research International showed how Roundup herbicide is 125 times more toxic than its active ingredient glyphosate studied in isolation. You can read more about that here.

We are talking about clear hormone disrupters and clear catalysts for cancer. Decades of science and scientific fraud that’s been exposed has forced the World Health Organisation, a major hub of the establishment that seems to regulate the shady industry of health, to finally admit that glyphosate, like cigarettes, processed foods and meats, is carcinogenic.

Clear Injustice

This judge’s reversal will end up having enormous financial and reputational repercussions for the corporation, and it seems obvious that she has been influenced by power and money. The truth is, if you take the scientific evidence, as well as clear evidence of scientific fraud and corruption by these corporate and government agencies (who are constantly in collusion with one another), there is no jury on the planet that would not reach a guilty verdict. That’s because the evidence is quite clear, which is why if this decision was going to be reversed, it would have to be the Judge over-ruling the jury’s decision.

This verdict proves that when ordinary citizens, in this case a jury of 12, hear the facts about Monsanto’s products, and the lengths to which this company has gone to buy off scientists, deceive the public and influence government regulatory agencies, there is no confusion.”  Ronnie Cummins, International Director of the organic consumers association

At the end of the day, we are the ones using these products and we are the ones voting with our dollar. That being said, it completely goes against our free will and interests for products to be approved that are obviously completely unsafe. It’s unfortunate that those who choose not to use these products or be near them, still end up with it in our system. The fact that Monsanto can still somehow fight this and provide evidence means our work is not yet done.

The Takeaway

The work of many brave activists has brought awareness to the severe health risks of glyphosate and Roundup, but to honor all their efforts we must continue to spread awareness about these corporate crimes until the time comes when these chemicals have been removed from all corners of the Earth.

Psychotronic millimeter wave weaponry is coming to a street near you, with the potential to unleash disease on a mass scale. Welcome to the new fifth generation of wi-fi called 5G, where the speed to send full-length, high-definition movies to your ipad is ten times faster.

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The Consequences

The need for speed has the consequence of going from moderate to severe health effects in record time. Note that 4G operates at 2.5 GHz or oscillates about 2.5 billion times per second. This frequency mimics water molecules in your body, and was chosen specifically for broadcasting services and equipment under government license. This means that all company products must meet this frequency or be deemed illegal. For what purpose is matching the human body’s frequency, you may ask, other than for weaponization? Good question.

The higher frequencies of 5G–100 GHz and beyond–will use small-scale wireless refrigerator-sized boxes, placed in front of every 2-10 homes on every street, in every city. As you watch the latest Hollywood flick, you will bask, unaware, in microwave emissions that oscillate at the same rate as your blood and oxygen molecules. These frequencies can cause burning sensations on your skin, impact fertility, as well as alter the electrochemical waves of your brain to affect consciousness.

Awaiting Installation of 5G

Secret testing of 5G emissions made its debut during the 2018 Olympics, and then again at the 2018 Super Bowl where over 67,000 people were part of a stress-test without their consent. Soon, the 5G antennae networks will be beta tested in nineteen U.S. cities including San Francisco, Los Angeles, Jacksonville, and San Jose. High frequency 5G signals travel shorter distances and are easily blocked by buildings and trees. What is the point? Why create new technology that takes humanity in reverse?  No time for answers. It’s full steam ahead to remove the obstacles that block the signals.

First the trees.

Direct Fires and Poisoning Trees

Many people in California report that the extensive “weird fires”  are destroying trees and leaving homes untouched. Everything does not burn.  At other times, the metal of cars and rails burned with the leaves on trees, leaving tree trunks and kindling. Could these unusual fires be the result of lasers from Directed Energy Weapons?  Whole forests have been devastated down straight lines, obeying fence lines. Add to that, the sanctioned poisoning of hardwood trees by timber companies that has led to over one million dead trees to create a fire hazard.

READ: 5G NETWORK USES SAME EMF WAVES AS PENTAGON CROWD CONTROL SYSTEM

Are the trees being destroyed merely to unblock hazardous signals? Is this treason/tree-son on multiple levels? These same millimeter waves have been used by the U.S. Army as a crowd control dispersal weapon called Active Denial Systems. Firefighters in Sacramento have reported memory problems and confusion following the installation of new towers in Los Angeles in 2004. Some cities, including Santa Rosa, have halted their 5G plans while health concerns are addressed.

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Tree Towers

The power of trees keep us calm by acting on our autonomic nervous system, as well as our spirit. Numerous studies show a dose-response relationship between urban tree cover density and self-reported stress recoveryStudies show reduced physiological markers of stress in subjects simply looking at images of nature.

Unless we can stand up, speak up, collaborate and network, we risk being victims of the attack coming at us unseen, as millimeter waves are directed at our bodies and minds. If we feel powerless and isolated now, imagine what it will feel like once the new networks are installed and operational. Image what it will be like when the trees are replaced with towers that look like trees. We only feel isolated when we work alone and isolate ourselves. Like a forest, there is strength in numbers.

Camilla Reese of Electromagnetichealth.org says we are facing actions at the federal and FCC levels that will create a dense network of high-intensity 4G and 5G microwave radiating cellular antennas in front of homes across America. Moreover, federal legislation, S 3157, would severely reduce local revenues, shorten review times for applications and curtail local control over siting of cell towers.  Camilla says the movement to stop this rollout is necessary for health but is also about getting corporate money out of politics and building an independent media not dependent on toxic polluters and the corruption driving it.

Health Effects of 5G

Because 5G frequencies affect oxygen molecules, they affect all biological systems, including DNA, circadian rhythm, heart function, hormonal regulation, and immune system. Hundreds of scientists have expressed concern that humans may experience serious health risks including increases in blindness, cataracts, retinal degeneration, hearing loss, male infertility, cancers, peripheral nervous system damage, impacts on immune cells, red blood cells leading to low cellular oxygen, and impaired transport of nutrients into cells. Impacts on birds and plants may be more severe than the impacts on humans.

Beyond direct effects to health, harmful frequencies threaten society as a whole by ignoring the human right to informed-consent to high levels of radiation. All life on the planet has a right to health and a healthy life. By accepting the 5G rollout without a discussion, as happened with the airport scanners, we give up sovereignty over our bodies and accelerate our demise. These frequencies ionize metals being sprayed into the atmosphere under military “geo-engineering” programs to charge the atmosphere, along with our bodies. These programs further block the healing frequencies of the sun required by all life.

S 3157 has bi-partisan support and currently faces little opposition. It could slip through the Senate via unanimous consent, appear in the House briefly and get attached to a spending bill — without any debate or roll-call votes specific to S 3157. This would wipe out nearly all the protective ordinances already passed by forward-looking cities.

On September 26, 2018, the FCC is scheduled to vote through its Wireless Infrastructure Order (dockets 17-79 and 17-84). This order attempts to preempt local control of the public rights-of-way. Wireless companies could then more easily install — in front homes — cell towers that would irradiate those nearby with intense, pulsed, data-modulated, Radio-frequency Electromagnetic Microwave Radiation (RF-EMR) — 24/7.

Some Solutions
  • Voice the power of NO to all new generation wi-fi systems without proven safety.
  • Hardwire all electrical connections or unplug wi-fi before sleeping.
  • Use aluminum screens on windows to block EMF signals.
  • Use RF-shielding paint to block EMF signals.
  • Consume Carbon60, a powerful antioxidant, metal absorber, and carrier of metals out of the body.
  • Unsubscribe to the genetically-modified corporate food system.
  • Eat an organic diet to strengthen and maintain your immune system.
  • Come together in small communities to maintain simple wi-fi for the benefit and balance of the group.
  • Grow your own food. Plant a garden. Grow herbs and fruit trees.
  • Stop using aluminum cookware, antiperspirants, baking powder, vaccines.
  • Remove the outdoor refrigerators from your sightline.

In usual form, attacks to human health and the health of the planet are coming from new technologies that are unproven,  untested, and amoral. Though government attempts to divide humanity, we are all Earthlings united at the level of our cells and our microbes. Do we slow down and preserve our smallest inhabitants? Or do we accept the coming tidal wave? Speed for the sake of speed is the ideology of a cancer cell.

“The Hindus say that without Shakti, the personified feminine life force, Shiva, who encompasses the masculine ability to act, becomes a corpse. She is the life energy that animates the male principle, and the male principle in turn animates action in the world.” ~ Clarissa Pinkola Estes

The personified feminine life force (Shakti) reminds the personified masculine life force (Shiva) that we are a force of interdependent nature first and independent humans second.

What does this mean, exactly? To put it into Darwinian terms, it means that we are, first and foremost, social creatures. We need each other to survive. As such, competition has always been secondary to cooperation; otherwise we wouldn’t have survived as a species.

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If we wish to continue our survival as a species, it is vital that we allow cooperation to be superior to competition. This means cooperation with the environment as well (Shakti as Gaia). Shakti is here to remind Shiva of this fact. To restore the balance. To make sure he isn’t “pretending to be asleep.”

The problem is that many people, intellectuals and nonintellectuals alike, have confused Darwin’s discoveries by focusing primarily on competition, and concepts like “might makes right.” Similar to the way the Nazis hijacked (and falsely portrayed) Nietzsche’s Overman concept, the modern war machine has hijacked (and falsely portrayed) Darwin’s “might makes right” concept.

This has created a dangerously lopsided view of reality: a kind of conquer-control-destroy-repeat mindset that has permeated our culture to such an extent that it has falsely convinced people that war is necessary to keep the peace and that violence is the answer to the problems we face.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

Might does not make right. War is not peace (as much as the warmongers and weapons manufacturers want you to believe it). Ignorance is not strength (as much as the uneducated egoists and xenophobic nationalists want you to believe it). Freedom is not slavery (as much as the brainwashed statists and fear-filled status-quo junkies want you to believe it).

Women (and men who are in touch with their anima) have a direct line to the kind of deep wisdom that’s necessary to turn the tide of the overreaching, violent war machine that outflanks us all. What Clarissa Pinkola Estes calls the “Deep Knowing.”

Shakti is Shiva’s wake-up call:

“A nation is not conquered until the hearts of its women are on the ground. Then it’s finished; no matter how brave its warriors or how strong their weapons.” ~Cheyanne proverb

Shakti is here to deflate the weak and obese (yet violent) masculine ego and build a robust and flexible male principle to take its place. But the process is going to hurt like hell. Going from a culturally conditioned male growing up in a profoundly sick society to a fully awake Shiva in touch with his divine masculinity is no walk in the park.

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Sometimes reaching true ground means being uprooted. Pain must be brought to the surface in order to be worked through effectively lest it turn into aggression, numbness and dissociation. Uprooting the pain of the past and digging it out of its shadowy repression opens everything up for authentic healing.

As it stands, armored masculinity is a bloody tangle of weaponry and bloated egos glued together by myopic one-upmanship. Our hypermasculine culture is overly aggressive, numb, and dissociated. It’s a shadow culture that feeds off its own repressed pain, violence, anger, guilt and grief. As R.D. Laing said, “We are effectively destroying ourselves by violence masquerading as love.”

Unbalanced and dangerously lopsided with obese masculinity, our culture needs the healing powers of the sacred feminine, as well as the sacred masculine, to balance it out.

Shakti is Shiva’s red flag:

“It is an absurd contradiction to speak of peace, to negotiate peace, and at the same time promote or permit the global arms trade. Is this war or that war really a war to solve problems? Or is it a commercial war for selling weapons in illegal trade and so that the merchants of death can get rich?” ~Pope Francis

Shakti is here to transform weaponry into livingry; to remind everyone that weaponry should always be secondary to livingry. And, even then, only in defense of it.

Shakti’s red flag is a symbol for righteous anger. It’s compassionate anger, seeking justice and a healthier system. It’s vulnerable anger: intimate, authentic, resilient and transformative. It’s moral anger, measuring injustice against the Golden Rule, the Nonaggression Principle and the Universal Laws that dictate healthy survival. It’s mindful anger, honoring the wounds of the past in the alchemical present so that they may become the wisdom of tomorrow.

This type of anger is turned, full-flame, toward violence, rape, misogyny, tyranny and war. Burning them in a courageous nonviolent fire.

Such anger breaks the heart open even as it turns outdated militarism into ash. As it should. Where we tend to go wrong is not allowing our heart to break all the way. As Rumi said, “You have to keep breaking your heart until it opens.”

Instead, we have the tendency to repress the sadness. We swallow the grief. We resist the heartbreak. We smother the pain away without ever really feeling it. So it just lingers in the shadows, but it grows stronger. It festers. It magnifies and manifests into an aggrandized version of itself that we call the Shadow. In this case, it’s a cultural shadow.

But when we let our heart break fully, it opens-up. The Shadow becomes self-actualized. It is finally allowed to be a part of the whole. A glorious sadness gushes out so that self-improved meaning can pour in. It hurts, but it’s a joyful ache. Our sadness finally has a resting place, a sacred space where it can be transformative and healing instead of crippling and violent.

Shakti is Shiva’s medicine, and vice versa:

“When the Sacred Masculine is combined with the sacred feminine inside each of us, we create the ‘sacred marriage’ of compassion and passion in ourselves.” ~Matthew Fox

Shakti is here to transform the congealed rage of a profoundly sick society, clinging to safety and security, into the focused insurgence of a healthy society, defending love and freedom.

When our cultural mythology is one of dominance and control (overly masculine), we become violent and hard, and closed off to the underlying essence. We become offensive and overreaching with our power, clinging to security out of fear.

When our cultural mythology is one of passivity and stagnation (overly feminine), we become fragile and fragmented, and unable to contain the underlying essence. We become submissive and weak, clinging to safety out of fear.

But when our cultural mythology is one of equilibrium and balance between these polar energies (the union of Shakti and Shiva), then the underlying essence can be tapped into and the overarching theme becomes robust and flexible and connected to the heart of creation –what Nietzsche referred to as the “Primordial Unity,” which revives and balances both our feminine and masculine energies.

Such a sacred union creates courage in the face of fear. It creates a billion women rising despite the powers that be and despite the violence they’ve been subjugated to in the past. Women who have the courage to rise-up as a force to be reckoned with (a Unified Gaia Principle). Women who say, “Fuck the war machine!” on behalf of men, women and children the world over. Women who no longer take the violence unleashed upon them lying down, but empower each other through education, the #MeToo Movement, Codepink, and the Women’s March on The Pentagon (taking place October 20th-21st, 2018).

It creates self-empowered women with the tender yet spirited wherewithal to empower men, to “animate the male principle so that it can in turn animate healthy action in the world.” To create a New Man, Shiva incarnate, who has the ability to tap into his inner Shakti, thereby awakening the divine energy from its unconscious state into a state of conscious awareness. The kind of man who creates rather than destroys, catalyzes rather than militarizes, heals rather than injures, and empowers rather than oppresses.

But first, there must be upheaval. First, there must be surfaced pain. There must be fierceness. There must be the strength and the courage to call out misogyny and rape, despite a culture numb to both. There must be audaciousness and the courage to speak truth to power, to call out the unnecessary violence of wars waged for profit. Bottom line: the pain caused by the bloated misbalance of hypermasculinity must first be addressed and worked through before the true Shiva can rise.

From the late 1400’s to the early 1600’s, a German banking family influenced world events and quietly ruled over an extremely influential role in history. The Fuggers of Augsburg were among Europe’s leading merchant-bankers as they were called, combining financial services with long distance trade.All kinds of offices and agencies related to money, loans brokered with Tyrolean and Hungarian copper and silver in return for loans provided to the rulers of mining areas, popped up in cities such as Venice, Lisbon, Seville, and Antwerp.

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

These institutions built by the Fuggers provided loans to some of the most influential entities in the world at the time.

They provided banking and credit services to the Hapsburg emperors, popes, European princes and nobility, and more. The main man of the dynasty was Jakob Fugger “the Rich.” At the time he was the wealthiest person in the world, according to the account of history we are told.

The Fugger financial institutions established sporadic ties with India and other regions that were less explored, including the “New World” as they called it. They basically went wherever they could and brokered loans to people who they would gain power over, and this laid the foundation for the banking scheme that would eventually rule the world: what we live in today, wage slavery, the grocery store paradigm, whatever you want to call it.

But what does it mean, that these Fugger financial offices established sporadic ties to the “New World?” Well, the “New World” started to be “explored,’ in other words torn to pieces and ruthlessly conquered by the Spanish and other forces, around the same time that the Fuggers began expanding these services.

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Spain established close ties to the Fuggers. The money that would enable Spain to conquer the Americas must have included the contributions from Jakob Fugger and his family. This connection seems to be studiously avoided in mainstream accounts of history.

Spanish prisoners and certain people were forced to work in the mercury mines of Almadén, and due to a deal with the Fuggers, the Spanish monarchy reaped financial benefits from forcing prisoners to mine mercury. In exchange for these German bankers providing loans to the Spanish crown, the Fuggers of Augsburg were given the power to administrate the mercury mines.

The intrinsic value of mercury back then was reportedly its use in extracting other metals from gold and silver ore. Mercury was needed to purify gold and silver through amalgamation.

(Image credit: spainisculture)

According to a past article:

In 1566, the German bankers (the Fuggers) failed to meet production quotas in the mercury mines. In response, 30 prisoners were sent by the King of Spain to labor away at Almadén. In 1583, this number increased to 40. The prisoners, known as “forzados,” were selected from a group of convicts waiting for transport to the galleys from the jail of Toledo. Although the king insisted living conditions at the mines were fine, between 1566 and 1593, 24% of all convicts died before their release dates.

A slow, excruciatingly painful death that came with an Alzheimer’s-type insanity was handed down to these prisoners, a result of the mercury poisoning. The prisoners experienced severe pains in the body, loss of sanity, trembling limbs, depression, anxiety and worse. Almost all of the men at the even more dangerous furnaces died of the poisoning.

Slaves imported from Northern Africa were also subject to poisoning at the mines, and by 1613, the slaves joined the forzados at a two to one ratio.”

Still, the people in positions of power were well aware that it caused people health problems, and for almost two thousand years now at least, people in power have been trying to poison civilians with mercury.

Even further back, all roads lead to Rome because the Romans made use of their mercury mines, turning them into “penal institutions for criminals, slaves, and other undesirables,” according to an academic page at Dartmouth.edu.

The official narrative is that Roman slaves and “undesirables” (probably included anyone critical of the Roman regime) were forced to work in the mines, because it was very likely they would become poisoned enough to die, and spare the need for an execution.

Today, we’re still being poisoned with mercury. It is in vaccines like the Sanofi flu shot and countless others (it is still there) and the mercury amalgam dental fillings, falsely referred to as “silver” fillings, that an untold number of people had for the past century and a half or so.

The effects of mercury exposure reverberate for decades, passing illness onto the offspring of poisoned people, because it can be passed down through prenatal exposure and it’s extremely, extremely difficult to chelate and remove from the body.

These fillings are usually 50% mercury, and 50% other metals. If your parents had them, you probably suffered from prenatal exposure to mercury and it could be responsible for health problems you don’t even know about.

If you had these fillings, you could have been poisoned if they weren’t taken out properly, and just the saliva in your mouth slowly poisoned you over the course of the time you had them.

Henry Schein is the dental corporation that makes most of the world’s mercury amalgam fillings, and their ex-Board of Directors member Margaret Hamburg is a person who clearly represents what is going on in this world.

She was FDA commissioner after being on the board of Henry Schein, refusing to regulate mercury amalgam dental fillings, until she resigned after a racketeering scandal with her husband’s hedge fund and pharma corporation Johnson & Johnson.

Her father and mother were both leaders in the American Eugenics Society, which has since been renamed several times, once the “Society for the Study of Social Biology,” and now “Society for Biodemography and Social Biology.”

From Jakob Fugger the Rich lending money to the Spanish crown so they can brutally conquer the native people of the Americas, while his family facilitates the poisoning of slaves and prisoners with mercury, to the modern day wealthy power players who make millions from people being poisoned with mercury, people are going to have to read between the lines here.

Mercury is one of the most toxic substances on Earth, to the point where it can be weaponized. It is known to cause depression, anxiety, neurological disorders, thoughts of suicide, chronic illness, fatigue and a litany of other health problems. It takes a person “down a notch,” mentally due to endocrine and hormone disruption and physically.

(Image credit: PubMed)

The conclusions drawn here are not exaggerated or blown out of proportion.

If people want to be strong, they must consider it important to focus on the people who poison us with mercury today, and a lot of things similar to this scenario.

What common interest do characters like this throughout history have? Why does everything around us happen to be toxic? We’re all on the feeding trough susceptible to whatever they give us in this grocery store paradigm, forged in a vision centuries ago by bankers.

Michael C. Ruppert was an ex-LAPD Narcotics Detective and whistleblower who came out against the CIA in the late 70’s. He claimed they tried to enlist him in protecting and helping to facilitate their drug running practices. When Ruppert declined involvement and came forward he said he was threatened, wrongly discredited, and even shot at, but that didn’t stop him from speaking up.

“I will tell you, director Deutch, that as a former LosAngeles police narcotics detective that the agency has dealt drugs throughout this country for a long time.” – Michael C. Ruppert

At a now infamous town hall hearing in LA, he faced off against the chief of the CIA with a packed room of people from the South-Central area cheering him on from the crowd. It was not only the unlawful behavior Ruppert wanted to expose, but also the incredible hypocrisy of the CIA and the LAPD for bringing cocaine and other drugs into the community, and then locking up small-time drug dealers and users.

These imported drugs were ripping apart communities with widespread effects like addiction, increased crime and gang activity, overdose deaths, and many incarcerations that broke up families leading to cycles of crime that spanned generations. You can see the video of the emotional town hall meeting below.

He Didn’t Stop There

Michael Ruppert spent most of his life trying to expose criminality at the highest levels. Tackling everything from the peak oil crisis to the military industrial complex. He also believed that 9/11 was allowed to happen by the Bush administration.

” 9-11 was a predictable event and it was motivated precisely and solely by Peak Oil and nothing else.” – Michael C. Ruppert (source)

Ruppert became a published author and gained more notoriety for his controversial book “Confronting Collapse: The Crisis of Energy and Money in a Post Peak Oil World.”  That ended up inspiring the eye-opening documentary “Collapse”, which is a worthwhile watch to start understanding the deep levels of corruption and cover-up that has been taking place around the globe.

No matter your thoughts on the legitimacy of Ruppert’s claims, it’s clear he wasn’t afraid of taking on the Goliaths of the world but for doing so was branded by many throughout the mainstream media as a wild conspiracy theorist.

“All corporate-owned and publicly-traded media is our first and foremost immediate enemy.” Michael C. Ruppert

Redemption?

It’s 1996 and in comes Gary Webb. A very well respected Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist who begins investigating the ties between leaders of the Nicaraguan Contra Rebel organizations and the CIA. Webb wrote a 3 part investigative series that got published in the San Jose Mercury News. This caused a public uproar, especially from people in poorer communities where the crack-cocaine epidemic was destroying families.

The publicity from Webb’s scathing piece of journalism against the CIA is what allowed Ruppert the chance to finally be heard on a larger scale, and Webb’s conclusions even launched a federal investigation into the issue. While many people believed him, Gary Webb ended up losing his publisher, getting smeared all over the mainstream news for exaggerating and was even called an outright liar. Alongside Ruppert, Webb was outspoken in saying there was massive media manipulation around the issue.

“The government side of the story is coming through the Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, The Washington Post. They use the giant corporate press rather than saying anything directly. If you work through friendly reporters on major newspapers, it comes off as The New York Times saying it and not a mouthpiece of the CIA.” – Gary Webb

Tragic Ending

Gary Webb was found dead in his home in 2004 with two gunshot wounds to the head. His death was ruled a suicide but there is still some speculation considering the fact that it’s uncommon for a person to pull the trigger twice in a suicide but to be fair it has happened in the past. There was a suicide note and his wife has stated he was depressed for a while about no longer being able to get a job at any major newspaper.

An eerily similar fate was met by Michael Ruppert. He was found dead in his home in 2014 with one gunshot wound to the head. He also left a note and his death was ruled a suicide. Just like Webb there was mystery around Ruppert’s official story, some believe it was a hit for saying too much or that maybe he was onto another big story, some believe the suicide was staged and he went off the map to get a fresh start, and others take the story at face value and think that maybe he’d just had enough of fighting, of always looking over his shoulder. As a man that spent his life questioning the mainstream narrative, it seems fitting that many conspiracy theories have formed around his death.

The Takeaway

If you check out the video above you can hear from Michael Ruppert himself about some of his story and see him in action at the town hall meeting where he challenged the CIA. His question to the chief is a powerful one, asking if he comes across information of illegal activity but it’s classified, will he report it?

Are these organizations we give the power to enforce the law and/or to protect us above the law? Are there circumstances where illegal activity by some organizations is justified, say if the information is a threat to public safety? Why could none of the CIA’s internal investigations find any hard evidence of the claims against them? Who’s watching the watchers? One of the final sentences of Ruppert’s suicide note reads:

“I do this for the children, may it bring love and light into the world.” – Michael C. Ruppert (source)

That seems like a cause that we can all get behind. Working together to build a world worth leaving to future generations. Let’s leave it better than we found it, I know we’re capable of it. Whether you agree with Michael Ruppert’s beliefs or not we can learn from him because I feel that he was trying to do just that, leave the world a better place. Love and light!

For some Canadians, October 17th is a day they have been anticipating for a long time. For others, it may pass by without much notice. Yet, one thing is for sure. Eventually, virtually all Canadians will be impacted in one way or another by Canada’s decision to legalize cannabis. Parents. Children. Regular Users. Non-users. Teenagers. The Elderly. Those of all ages suffering from illnesses of all kinds.

And not only will this impact the everyday lives of people in Canada, most Canadian institutions will be going through a learning curve and devoting attention to this new phenomenon. The government. Law Enforcement Agencies. Growers and farms. Wholesalers and retailers. Advertisers and marketers. Who in Canada will be able to say they have not been touched by this one way or another, once the intoxicating and healing powers of cannabis become more accessible even than alcohol?

What Will Change

Some changes will happen immediately, some changes will evolve over time. Some people argue that Canada is not yet ready for all the implications of legalizing cannabis at this point, but the prevailing attitude is that things will sort themselves out in an orderly fashion over the next 1-3 years.

Law enforcement: The change in the criminal code means that limited possession of cannabis is no longer a crime, though people who are currently in jail for possession of cannabis are not being automatically let out of jail. Much of law enforcement rhetoric focuses on preventing youth from indulging in cannabis, in a fashion similar to the restrictions on alcohol. More likely, the majority of funds and manpower will be diverted to combating black market enterprises, given that the government now stands to gain $675 million per year in tax revenues from the sale of legal cannabis. Regulations for impaired driving as a result of cannabis consumption look to evolve over time as technologies for measuring impairment like alcohol ‘breathalizers’ improve.

Home Growing: Individuals will be permitted to grow up to four plants for their own use. While the sale of edibles (baked goods, drinks, etc) will not be allowed initially, individuals can make edibles at home for their own use.

Marketing and Retail: The way in which legal cannabis is promoted and sold to the public will likely go through a push-pull transition between advertising regulations and the way wholesalers and retailers will try to get around those regulations to sell their products. The same can probably be said for the business chain as a whole from growth to consumption.

Usage in General: Usage in Canada is bound to increase, simply due to an increase in the availability for those who have not actively sought it out in the past, and the removal of the stigma of its illegality, as well as the social acceptance of the consumption of cannabis which is bound to grow over the next couple of years.

What Will Not Change

There are two things that will not change when cannabis is made legal in Canada on October 17th: cannabis and you.

Cannabis itself is not suddenly safer or better for you than it was before just because it has become legalized. The same decisions you were making on whether or not to indulge in the past still pretty much apply, so ubiquitous was its use despite being illegal. Will regulation make the quality of cannabis you receive better? Not necessarily. It may become more consistent, if less potent, if the quality controls in place are reliable. But remember, black market dealers and sellers had an intrinsic investment in the quality of their product if they were to hope to have regular customers.

By ‘you,’ I am referring to your deepest, truest sense of self, the person you are and who you want to be in the highest vision of yourself. This does not change with any change of regulation in the outer world, and certainly you have to be wary if this change of regulation arbitrarily changes the choices you make and impacts your habits, goals, and dreams.

What To Watch Out For

You may be one who will be inclined to be more open to the personal recreational use of cannabis once it becomes legal. With this comes the possibility of gradually developing a dependence, facilitated by a greater legal and social acceptability. It is important to take notice if recreational use begins to devolve into a catch-all means of escaping from the stress and discomfort of real-life problems, in ways that you get out of the habit of confronting problems and discomfort at their source.

The same can be said about the use of cannabis for medicinal purposes. No doubt, cannabis and CBD oil will be marketed as the healthy sedative for physical ailments and will also be touted as a curative agent for certain types of diseases. While this may be true in some particular cases, you have to be cautious about the claims made by sellers and marketers of the product, whose job is to sell rather than research and diagnose exactly what conditions will benefit from cannabis treatment, and even more particularly what strains of cannabis will work for given conditions.

There is a body of research about the curative effects of cannabis made from an Eastern holistic perspective, which treats each individual case not based on outward symptoms, as Western medicine does, but in terms the particular physiological, emotional and spiritual conditions an individual is in which seen to be at the root of the individual’s ailment. Hence, being wary of marketing practices does not mean avoid cannabis or CBD oil as medicinal treatment for a particular condition, but try to do so in consultation with an unbiased and trusted practitioner/researcher whose motives are healing your particular condition rather than making profits selling cannabis.

The Takeaway

The consumption of cannabis has the potential to be both consciousness-expanding and consciousness-numbing. It does have healing properties but you really have to do your due diligence and use it in a very disciplined way in order to truly gain healing benefits from it rather than getting into the habit of simply escaping from pains and difficulties that are part of a normal life. It is an exciting time for Canadians in that we are now more free to choose something that never should have been illegal to begin with. Let’s make sure this newfound freedom serves us in the best ways as individuals and as a community.

The world of film has always captivated me. Whether it be its ability to present a supernatural reality I’ll never get to experience, or its ability to accurately depict an emotion I can relate to, there really is something surreal about going to or staying in to watch a movie.

And while the subscription numbers to popular film and television streaming platforms like Netflix and Amazon Prime certainly suggest that I likely don’t need to sell you on choosing to watch them, I do believe that a pitch needs to be made for the particular variety of them that I’m suggesting within this article.

That variety of course, is short films. The unofficial younger sibling to feature-length films that aside from those that happen to play before a popular Pixar film, or those that are nominated for an Academy Award, often go largely unnoticed by the masses. So I’d like to present a list of 7 thought-provoking independently made short films that you can watch for free online now as part of the Spirit Film Festival until the end of October.

1. Uncaptured

How often do you consciously choose to sit in silence? And better yet, is it even readily available to you? The short film Uncaptured explores the emotional and physical impact that setting aside conscious time to be in silence can have on the thoughts, programs and belief systems we have stored within us.

Through a series of interviews we are given insight in alignment with the famous Thomas Carlyle quote the film presents just after its title card: “Silence is as deep as eternity; Speech is as shallow as time.” WATCH UNCAPTURED

2. The Nine Billion Names of God

Based on the book by Arthur C. Clarke -most infamously known as to co-writer of 2001: A Space Odyssey with Stanley Kubrick –The Nine Billion Names of God tells the story of a Tibetan monk who seeks to list all of the names of God with the help an automatic sequence computer.

Based in 1957, the short film is beautifully shot and is carried from start to finish by a beautiful score, perfectly setting the stage for a thought-provoking adventure. WATCH THE NINE BILLIONS NAMES OF GOD

3. Leave Of Presence

If you were asked to list what would make you happy in life, a well-paying job and vibrant social life would likely make the list. Yet the presence of both of those elements didn’t stop Sudha Suthanthiram from dropping everything to head to India in search of her true calling.

This short narrative film runs less than 5 minutes in length yet it offers great food for thought for all of us questioning our purpose in life. WATCH LEAVE OF PRESENCE

4. Nectar of Devotion

Nectar of Devotion shares the fascinating transition made by the one-time frontman for an acid rock band into GuruGanesha Singh Khalsa. While his former life offered much of the surface-level pleasures that so many of us fantasize about, GuruGanesha delves into how his new life has created a happiness unlike ever before.

The short film runs under 7 minutes in length and goes into detail on the difficulties associated with making the transition and how his new kirtan rock band is making the type of impact he always desired having on others. WATCH NECTAR OF DEVOTION

5. Graham: A Dog’s Story

Whether or not you consider yourself a dog lover, Graham: A Dog’s Story is a funny and touching short film told from the perspective of a dog. From being introduced into the family, to “letting go” we’re led through so many of the stages that owners and their favorite pets often go through in life without much attention.

While the short film is carried by a comedic voiceover, it delves into many unexpected stages of a dog’s life including the impact that they have on us even long after they are gone. WATCH GRAHAM: A DOG’S STORY

6. Bekia

In just 6 minutes, Bekia powerfully shares the story of Hamdy, a seller of used goods doing everything he can to make a living on the streets of Cairo. Director Alia Adel effectively takes us into a world that most of us would never have otherwise known about.

The short is beautifully shot and well worth 6 minutes of your life. WATCH BEKIA

7. I Am Here

I Am Here is a unique short put together by the National Film Board of Canada that follows a mysterious animated travellers journey to discover the origin of life. Carried by a riveting score by composer duo Menalon, the film delves into themes and subject matter we would all benefit from pondering on.

Running just over 5 minutes in length, I Am Here manages to take a look at a lot of the questions so many of us have buried within us. WATCH I AM HERE

Pediatric vaccines represent a $40 billion dollar market, and with emerging studies showing numerous causes for concern, coupled with the scientific fraud we’ve seen conducted by multiple pharmaceutical giants, it’s imperative that we really start to question the medicines being prescribed to us, and the influence that the medical industry has on manufacturing these medicines as well as providing medical education.

It’s truly a shame that for the majority of human history, various cultures developed and utilize natural medicines effectively, but with the birth of chemical medicine (via John D. Rockefeller), all of the traditional ‘hospitals’ were completely destroyed, along with their methods of treatment. This effort to maintain a monopoly on healing is still seen today with the multiple attacks that have occurred on holistic naturopathic medicine.

It’s been more than a decade since John Ioannidis, an epidemiologist at Stanford University School of Medicine, published an article entitled “Why Most Published Research Findings Are False.” It became one of the most widely accessed articles in academic history. Since then, numerous scientists and people within the field, from doctors to professors, from whistleblowers within major medical organizations and pharmaceutical companies to editors-in-chief of the most prestigious medical journals in the world, have all been trying to create awareness around this issue.

Take doctor Richard Horton, current editor-in-chief of The Lancet, who publicly stated that most of the published research, possibly half of it, could be false due to corruption and scientific error. Arnold Seymour Relman, past editor -in-chief of the New England Journal of Medicine has also expressed his disgust with regards to Big Pharma basically buying the medical industry. Dr. Marcia Angell, a physician and longtime editor-in-chief of the New England Medical Journal (NEMJ) has also done the same thing, along with many others.

Scientific Fraud

Then we have real-life documented examples of scientific fraud, whether that be pharmaceutical companies not disclosing the full results of their clinical trials, and downright lying about their medications in order to simply get them approved. And who is doing the approving? Government agencies and regulatory agencies who have extremely close ties to these companies. We clearly no longer live in a democracy, it’s become a corporatocracy.

Dr. Asseem Malhotra, a well-known doctor in Britain had some choice words to say in front of the European Parliament about modern-day medical education and overall knowledge doctors possess. He’s one of many who continues to emerge and speak out. You can read more about what he had to say, letting the world know that we have an “epidemic of misinformed doctors,” here, and you might also be interested in the following article, Why “Peer Reviewed” Science Continues To Lose Credibility.

Mental Health

Mental health is a HUGE money maker for the medical industry, and unfortunately, it’s highly targeted towards children. What I mean by that is that it seems so easy these days to label a child with ADD, ADHD, or even with ASD, depression, anxiety disorders and more. As a result, many of these children are medicated, and there are lots of them. Coupled with this initiative is a massive mental health awareness campaign that’s basically being used as propaganda to further perpetuate the problem.

When it comes to these labels, something that’s never really discussed are the financial ties between the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) panel members and the pharmaceutical industry. It was never really investigated until American psychologist Lisa Cosgrove and others decided to take the initiative. They found that, of the 170 DSM panel members, more than half (large number) had one or more financial associations with companies in the pharmaceutical industry.

One hundred percent of the members of the panels on ‘mood disorders’ and ‘schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders’ had financial ties to drug companies. The connections are especially strong in those diagnostic areas where drugs are the first line of treatment for mental disorders. In the next edition of the manual, it’s the same thing:

The DSM appears to be more a political document than a scientific one. Each diagnostic criteria in the DSM is not based on medical science. No blood tests exist for the disorders in the DSMN. It relies on judgements from practitioners who rely on the manual. – Lisa Cosgrove, PdD, Professor of Counselling and School Psycyhology at the University of Massachusetts, Boston. Lisa Cosgrove (source)

$16 Trillion By 2030

This is very concerning, especially because mental health disorders are expected to cost the global economy approximately $16 trillion a year by the time we hit 2030. As the Daily Mail reports, this comes as a result of the collective failure to respond to this global health crisis, which will result in monumental loss of human capabilities and avoidable suffering.

Although the information above goes to show how much of a fraud a large part of the mental health industry represents, it’s a real growing problem, and we continue to simply pad the problem with medications instead of addressing the actual causes. These include our food, the heavy metals present in the environment, air quality, pesticides, pollution, trauma and a whole lot more. It seems these are never addressed, and when they are, it seems there is a harsh opposition to accept some of these things as the actual cause.

This is because if true, a complete change would come for many. Take Monsanto, for example: what happens if the pesticides they produce, spray, and approve for use with their collusion inside of the government are actually causing multiple diseases? This means a shutdown of an entire company, and billions/trillions of dollars lost.

The $16 trillion cost was estimated from World Bank data based on the loss to the global economy if people of a working age suffer from mental health problems.

‘Anyone who cares about poverty, education, social cohesion or economic progress should work to improve mental health, putting the vast knowledge we have on promotion, prevention and care, into action,’ Professor Vikram said.

Around 13.5 million deaths, including suicides, could be avoided globally every year if more money was invested into mental health, the authors estimate.

The Commission also urged low and middle-income countries to raise their spending on mental health from less than one per cent of their healthcare budget to at least five per cent.

The report, which was launched at the first Global Ministerial Mental Health Summit in London, claimed people with mental illness still suffer ‘gross human rights violations’ in many countries.

‘Human rights violations and abuses persist in many countries, with large numbers of people locked away in mental institutions or prisons, or living on the streets, often without legal protection,’ the report, which was put together by 28 experts, claims.

It Shouldn’t Cost So Much

In fact, money is not even the answer. These figures come from multiple costs, but mainly from the cost of medications. Medications when it comes to mental health issues are iffy at best. The very fact that we can’t see chemical flows on the brain from which apparently many mental health disorders arise, should ring off alarm bells in the heads of most people.

It because the only imbalances we know of in the brains of people called mental patients are the ones inflicted on them by the psychiatric drugs. We make a false claim that they have biochemical imbalances and then we give them biochemical imbalances. There is much we don’t understand about ‘mental illness.’

Why shouldn’t it cost so much? Because mental health interventions that show success deal with mindfulness, talking about emotions, thoughts and feelings. Meditation can help, and multiple therapies that don’t involve medication exist. The sad thing about this is that people who has been diagnosed with mental health issues are not provided with any options or resources other than a medication recommendation from their physician. For the most part, the physician doesn’t really know what is going on.

The main reason we take so many drugs is that drug companies don t sell drugs, they sell lies about drugs. This is what makes drugs so different from anything else in life… Virtually everything we know about drugs is what the companies have chosen to tell us and our doctors… the reason patients trust their medicine is that they extrapolate the trust they have in their doctors into the medicines they prescribe.

The patients don’t realize that, although their doctors may know a lot about diseases and human physiology and psychology, they know very, very little about drugs that’ve been carefully concocted and dressed up by the drug industry… If you don t think the system is out of control, please email me and explain why drugs are the third leading cause of death… If such a hugely lethal epidemic had been caused by a new bacterium or a virus, or even one-hundredth of it, we would have done everything we could to get it under control.” – Dr. Peter Gotzsche (source)

The Takeaway

Question what you read and hear. We have massive mental health campaigns happening right now to create awareness of the problem, but none of these campaigns address the issues mentioned above, and it seems the medical industry, in general, is never questioned at all. In my opinion, mental health disorders and diagnoses represent the heart of medical fraud.

It’s important to recognize the increase in environmental factors mentioned in the article that are no doubt contributing to mental illness. Furthermore, it’s important to address the fact that we are never advised or taught how to deal with trauma, our emotions and our feelings while growing up. We learn how to memorize, we don’t learn how to empathize. Reversing this would assist in coping with the modern day mental health epidemic we see today.

Humans are good at reacting to crises that they can see right before their eyes, but if something isn’t recognizing as an immediate threat, we’re very good at ignoring it. For the last 8 years we have been receiving warnings about the loss of honey bees and other pollinator insects, but yet so far have been wholly unable to comprehend what this means to our future, and therefore have been unable and unwilling to react with any seriousness.

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

In recent years we’ve reported on this unfolding catastrophe, pointing out the bees in Europe and North America are seeing major declines along with many other critical insects. In 2013, Florida declared two butterfly species had gone extinct. German researchers in 2017 reported on a 75% reduction in the total biomass of flying insects.  Massive die-offs of bees is common these days, and many point to the widespread use of insecticides and other agrichemicals as the major cause.

Insects in general are in a massive die-off today, and the results could be catastrophic for the planet. A new report published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences brings attention to the spread of this calamity to the Americas, noting some 60-fold losses in arthropods and other insects in the rainforests of central america.

The loss is deeply extending into populations of frogs, birds, and many other ecologically important creatures, and the team of researchers compared insect populations in Puerto Rico today with those 40 years ago.

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

“We went down in ’76, ’77 expressly to measure the resources: the insects and the insectivores in the rain forest, the birds, the frogs, the lizards,” Lister said.

 

He came back nearly 40 years later, with his colleague Andrés García, an ecologist at the National Autonomous University of Mexico. What the scientists did not see on their return troubled them. “Boy, it was immediately obvious when we went into that forest,” Lister said. Fewer birds flitted overhead. The butterflies, once abundant, had all but vanished.

 

García and Lister once again measured the forest’s insects and other invertebrates, a group called arthropods that includes spiders and centipedes. The researchers trapped arthropods on the ground in plates covered in a sticky glue, and raised several more plates about three feet into the canopy. The researchers also swept nets over the brush hundreds of times, collecting the critters that crawled through the vegetation.

 

Each technique revealed the biomass (the dry weight of all the captured invertebrates) had significantly decreased from 1976 to the present day. The sweep sample biomass decreased to a fourth or an eighth of what it had been. Between January 1977 and January 2013, the catch rate in the sticky ground traps fell 60-fold.

 

“Everything is dropping,” Lister said. The most common invertebrates in the rain forest – the moths, the butterflies, the grasshoppers, the spiders and others – are all far less abundant.

 

“Holy crap,” Wagner said of the 60-fold loss.” [Source]

In order to adequately address this serious crisis, we would need to address some of the major, systemic problems in our world today, such as pollution, modern chemical-based agriculture, and a changing climate. It remains to be seen whether or not we people are capable of actually taking on a problem of this magnitude.

“If anything, I think their results and caveats are understated. The gravity of their findings and ramifications for other animals, especially vertebrates, is hyperalarming.” ~David Wagner, an expert in invertebrate conservation at the University of Connecticut

On October 11, 2018, 58+ more pages were removed from Facebook causing yet another uproar in the ‘war’ against independent media. My inbox flooded with messages as friends and other page admins began asking me when I thought we were going to be next.

The thought crossed my mind, the day could come, but for now, we will keep building our platform off Facebook, stay grounded in our thoughts and continue producing quality, neutral, conscious media and journalism. We feel Facebook will not have any REAL excuse to come after that, but we know they don’t need an excuse per se.

After all, all of my friend’s pages were just deleted because Facebook felt they were tied to some sort of Russian/US election meddling. It’s interesting when you consider the only people meddling in the election is Facebook. Why else would they delete numerous Facebook pages which often oppose the state-controlled mainstream media?

Beyond the political pressure Facebook seems to be receiving, what actually goes on during this all our targeted censorship? We may never know exactly, but signs point to a specific group that appears to be heavily involved in the process.

The Group That Guides Facebook Censorship

Enter The Atlantic Council (TAC).

According to a Google Search,

TAC is an American think tank in the field of international affairs. Founded in 1961, it provides a forum for international political, business, and intellectual leaders. It manages ten regional centers and functional programs related to international security and global economic prosperity.

Sounds nice, but then again so do many things that have profit and control driven intentions. Take Monsanto for example, here is an explanation of what they do according to a Monsanto rep.

Monsanto is a global modern agriculture company. We develop products and tools to help farmers around the world grow crops while using energy, water, and land more efficiently. We believe innovation has the potential to bring humanity’s needs in balance with the resources of our planet.

A look into what Monsanto really does might reveal such things as harming and destroying nature en masse. Poisoning the masses and feeding them a genetically experimental food that in many studies shows dangers.

The point is, we have to look a little more closer at corporations.

So who exactly are The Atlantic Council? And are they actually helping Facebook decide who to censor? Good questions. Let’s begin by looking at who funds TAC.

Here are a few donors according to TAC’s website. They include the US and foreign government agencies as well as prominent companies and figures tied to deep state activity.

HSBC Holdings plc
Rockefeller Brothers Fund
Google Inc.
Foreign & Commonwealth Office of the United Kingdom
Lockheed Martin Corporation
The Coca-Cola Company
Chevron
Bahaa Hariri (prominent Lebanese billionaire)
United States Army
United States Chamber of Commerce
United States Marine Corps
United States Navy

Below is a recent tweet from Daniel McAdams, the Executive Director, Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity, outlining the funding of The Atlantic Council.

Is this a private entity? pic.twitter.com/5oGABYjMqz

— Daniel McAdams (@DanielLMcAdams) October 12, 2018

With my 11 years of research into this space, I feel as though this is the type of group responsible for controlling narratives around the world. Whitewashing wars, creating hatred between nations on the public level, and fostering narratives that lead to wars and conflict. After all, it’s funded by arms manufacturers like Raytheon, Lockheed Martin, and Boeing.

In other words, TAC may very well be a propaganda arm for agencies like NATO, the US Government and so forth. This would mean they work to control the narratives that come out of mainstream media to control what the public thinks and discusses. This leads to what the public will ultimately support.

According to Facebook’s newsroom, on May 17th, 2018, Facebook announced its partnership with The Atlantic Council to combat ‘fake news.’

Today, we’re excited to launch a new partnership with the Atlantic Council, which has a stellar reputation looking at innovative solutions to hard problems.

How did the mainstream media view this partnership with a council such as this? A council backed by the very billionaires and corporations independent media organizations prove fund wars, terrorism, and harm/mislead the public?

“US think tank’s tiny lab helps Facebook battle fake social media” – Reuters

Facebook partners with Atlantic Council to improve election security” – The Hill

Facebook Partners With the Atlantic Council to Fight Election Propaganda” – Fortune

Everything points to ‘fake news’ and ‘propaganda.’ The narratives that began the moment Hillary Clinton, the next Deep State chosen president, lost the 2016 election.

As the public, we have to ask the question, who’s watching the watchers? If mainstream media holds the position of never being purveyors of propaganda, then how do we know who’s truly holding them accountable? Well, I guess it’s the Atlantic Group. Helping to create narratives that point to independent dissenting media voices as ‘propaganda.’

Perhaps this is the group behind the ‘Russian/US election fraud narrative.’ Maybe this is the group who is still trying to big up the highly corrupt Clinton’s. Maybe this is a group that is creating the propaganda that enters the mainstream. (A story we’d love to investigate once we can afford to hire our investigative team.)

Does TAC Really Create Propaganda? Yes!

How do we know The Atlantic Council creates propaganda themselves? Let’s look back to when Ben Nimmo, a one-time NATO press officer, and Atlantic Council board member, stated that grammar mistakes were “proof” that journalists or social media users were paid Kremlin trolls.

Ben Nimmo later went on to create a worldwide fake news story, that the mainstream media heavily ran with, calling a retired British citizen a Russian bot. The British citizen and Twitter user Ian56789 later came out on Sky News showing his real face and identity, proving Ben Nimmo was wrong about him being a Russian bot. Of course, the mainstream media didn’t go national with that story, only the fake news version.

WikiLeaks was critical of Nimmo and The Atlantic Council after that bout of propaganda.

You literally produced, with money from weapons companies and dictatorships, a fake news story that spread all over the world, defaming a very British retiree, who wants to reduce arms company profits, as a Kremlin bot. So who’s the paid troll?

— WikiLeaks (@wikileaks) April 21, 2018

The point here is, Facebook choosing to work with this group essentially states Facebook is becoming nothing more than a narrative controller just like the mainstream media. TAC on several occasions has created fake news stories, that went viral, about the very political narratives independent media is pointing out as false yet are being called propaganda. So who is truly creating propaganda?

The entity that is making censorship decisions for Facebook, as publicly announced, is the Atlantic Council, a partly US government-funded entity. At what point will the extremely tight ties between these companies and the US government end the “they are private” argument?

— Daniel McAdams (@DanielLMcAdams) October 12, 2018

As a side, this is a council that gave its top global leadership awards to former US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.

What Do We Do & The Takeaway

Independent media, specifically conscious media as well, are crucially important voices in our society during a time where Orwell’s 1984 is happening right in front of us. As Facebook, Google and other corporations strip funding from organizations like Collective Evolution, the reach stops, the work slows down and the propaganda voices of the mainstream get louder.

This is a time for us to come together and truly choose which direction we go forward in. We must stop supporting mainstream media outlets and do our best to share and keep independent media alive. CE has lost 80% of its funding since two years ago. We have regained about 10% of that so far through our community support campaign. It’s up to us to see what prevails here. We must become active.

Since we can be removed from Facebook at any point, join our email list to stay updated with our content.

As my readers know, I’ve reported on a number of scandals concerning the toxicity of medical drugs and vaccines, including shocking death numbers in the US.

These scandals are leaks from inside the National Security State.

If you visit Wikileaks, Cryptome, Public Intelligence, and other similar sites, how many purely medical documents do you find posted?

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

How many damaging leaks exposing the crimes of the medical cartel do you find?

Very, very few.

Where are the medical insiders who are liberating and passing along incriminating documentary evidence?

Some of the best exposers of political, intelligence-agency, and military crimes are way behind the curve, when it comes to medical matters. They’re living in a fantasy. They see nothing in the medical arena.

The medical sphere, for various reasons, is far better protected than any other segment of society.

For the hundredth time, let me cite Dr. Barbara Starfield’s stunning review, “Is US health really the best in the world?” published on July 26, 2000, in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

Starfield, at the time, was working as a highly respected public health expert, at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health.

She concluded that the US medical system kills 225,000 Americans a year. That would add up to 2.25 million deaths per decade.

Laid directly at the door of the American medical complex.

Aside from the genocidal death toll, Starfield’s findings also reveal massive fraud in all medical journals that routinely publish the glowing results of clinical trials of drugs.

How could such trials open the door to the marketing of drugs that kill, according to Starfield, 106,000 Americans every year, unless deep, continuing, and abetted research fraud were the order of the day?

Indeed, Dr. Marcia Angell, the editor of New England Journal of Medicine for 20 years, wrote the following:

“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.” (NY Review of Books, January 15, 2009)

Finally, here’s a document (as a slide presentation) in plain sight, on the FDA’s own site: “FDA Why Learn About Adverse Drug Effects?”. You’ll see the FDA admits there are 100,000 deaths per year resulting from these “drug effects.”

The FDA, of course, is the single government agency responsible for certifying drugs as safe and effective, before their public release is permitted. Yet the FDA takes absolutely no responsibility for the deaths.

Can you imagine the feeding frenzy, if, say, some leaker in the Pentagon passed along a political/military document to Wikileaks that showed the Dept. of Defense was poisoning to death, like clockwork, a hundred thousand of its own soldiers every year—and was readily admitting it?

Let’s stop this insane nonsense of separating one whole set of government crimes from another, simply because the propagandized priests in the white coats are above reproach.

We’re not living in 1950 anymore, and this isn’t Kansas.
