Few have said more about the benefits of cannabis than author, lecturer and psychedelic drug enthusiast Terence McKenna.

McKenna used cannabis regularly as a creative aid meant to induce higher consciousness, bring a sense of mental clarity and make the expression of deep thought easier. He didn’t consider its use something to be ashamed of, but embraced.

He often spoke of the plant’s practically endless uses, and on one occasion, he quit for a short period of time while working on a book only to realize after completing it (without having used cannabis the whole time he wrote it) that the book was terrible (1).

Obviously, his experiences are unique and don’t apply to everyone. Continue reading Terence McKenna on Cannabis, Creativity and Decriminalization

Energy Transfer Partners’ PAC spent over $869,000 in the 2014 and 2016 federal election cycles, but CEO Kelcy Warren has spent far more influencing politics at the state level in Texas.

AUSTIN, Texas — The corporation behind the controversial Dakota Access oil pipeline also operates its own political action committee that has a record of donating to the campaigns of candidates who support the company’s pro-corporate, pro-fossil fuels agenda in Congress.

How to Weather the Storm of Hard Truths – Part 1/2

By Steve Beckow, Golden Age of Gaia

You may wish to bookmark this article for a later time.

Our lot for a time, I think, will be to hear good news and bad news.

The good news is everything we already know about – the Reval, NESARA/GESARA, Disclosure, Ascension. That’s the agenda.

The bad news is the uncomfortable truths that soon may or will begin to be revealed, to a wider circle than just us lightworkers.

What will issue from a newly-opened and now-informed press will depress the heck out of some folks. Thsy may want to lynch the cabal. Others may just lash out blindly. Some may choose to leave altogether. Continue reading How to Weather the Storm of Hard Truths – Part 1/2

I suggest that you buckle up your emotional seat belts when the revelations of truth start flying. Some of them will be intense.

Some of you won’t like what you hear. Some will walk away from this blog and others.

We’re approaching a time when we may need, as my meditation instructor would say, to “take what you like and leave the rest.”

It’s going to be a time of discernment for us here at the blog, but a totally-different kind of discernment for you. We have to discern what’s likely to be true (and we’ve been wrong) and productive to post. You have to determine what you can take knowing.

Toxic Nanoparticle Air Pollution Found in Human Brain Tissue

By Anna Scanlon, Natural Society

Many cities around the world are afflicted with air pollution, leading to an early death for as many as 200,000 people each yeah in the U.S. alone. Now, there’s even more of a reason to be concerned.

According to a recent study, toxic nanoparticles have been found in “abundance” in human brain tissue. Although researchers don’t have a causative link yet, it is possible that these toxins can contribute to growing instances of Alzheimer’s disease.

Found within open fires and engines, magnetite particles are small, less than the width of a human hair. This new research shows that they can also sometimes be found in the frontal cortex of the human brain, leading to mental health hazards.

7 Reasons Why Your Spiritual Awakening Has Come To A Sudden Stop

By LJ Vanier, iSoulScience.com (Thanks to In5D.com)

No matter your level of conscious awareness or the level of spiritual enlightenment that you have attained, there will come a time on your spiritual journey where you know and feel that you have made great internal progress and then suddenly… nothing.

Positivity has flown out the window, prophetic visions and lucid dreaming have been replaced with normal lower conscious ideals and mindfulness has been replaced with overactive thinking patterns. You simply can’t make the connection that you once felt and it seems impossible to return to the level of light, love and higher awareness that you seek.

Justice Department Overrules Court, Dakota Access Pipeline Construction Halted

By Nick Bernabe, Anti Media

(ANTIMEDIA) North Dakota — On Friday, a federal court sided with Energy Transfer Partners, allowing the company to continue construction on the Dakota Access Pipeline. The ruling came after the Standing Rock Sioux tribe attempted to halt the pipeline’s construction through the justice system because they claimed it would violate federal laws and jeopardize their water supply.

However, the Department of Justice, the Department of the Interior, and the Department of the Army quickly overruled the court’s decision, placing a temporary halt on Dakota Access pipeline construction on Army Corps of Engineering lands. Their statement says the decision will take effect until the Army “can determine whether it will need to reconsider any of its previous decisions regarding the Lake Oahe site under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) or other federal laws.” Continue reading Justice Department Overrules Court, Dakota Access Pipeline Construction Halted
