Meditation is wonderful.
By bringing your attention to your subconscious, it helps you become aware of things deep within that either help or hurt you. If you meditate for long enough, it’ll reveal the answers to your deepest questions.
Without meditation, I don’t think I could receive the guidance I’ve needed to get through countless problems in life.
Meditation was there for me each time I realized I can’t find what I need in the material world. By becoming silent, still, and willing to listen to the nothingness, I discovered a higher consciousness and the potential to plunge deeper.
Within the meditation-induced nothingness, you discover the intuitive stream of thought that leads to positive places through positive choices. If you can tune in and listen to this intuitive thought stream, it’ll help you stay on the right path.

An Iranian woman becomes the first ever female to win the Fields Medal from the International Mathematical Union. The medal has been awarded to the rightful winner every four years for the past 80 years since it began, and each and every time the award has been given to a man. But that all changed in 2014, when Maryam Mirzakhani won the award.
Mirzakhani is a professor at Stanford University and was presented the award for her “outstanding contributions to the dynamics and geometry of Riemann surfaces and their moduli spaces.” After being the first female recipient she told the Stanford Report, “It is fun – it’s like solving a puzzle or connecting the dots in a detective case. I felt that this was something I could do, and I wanted to pursue this path.” Continue reading Iranian Woman Becomes First Female To Win Prestigious Mathematics Award

Extraterrestrials and UFOs are a very hot topic right now, and have been for quite some time, especially within the past few years. Why? Partly because it’s human nature to ponder the unknown and the mysterious, but it’s also in large part due to the fact that hundreds of high ranking whistle-blowers from around the world with verified credentials, have come forward sharing their stories and experiences regarding intelligent extraterrestrials visiting planet Earth.
The whistle-blowers range from professors, to NASA astronauts, all the way to high ranking military, political figures, and more. Not only that, to complement these testimonies, thousands of documents pertaining to the UFO/extraterrestrial issue have been released by dozens of governments. UFOs are no longer a fringe topic, and if the past few years have been any indication, more and more evidence is surely to surface as we move through 2017 and beyond.

Contrast these two memories. The first I mentioned a few days ago.
The former-high school president is asked to address the 50th Reunion. He tells them about the shift in consciousness oncoming and was told that this was not the proper venue for it.
Ouch. That’s scene one. Now scene two.
At the 2012 Scenario Conference in Oct. 2012 that same lad is given the opportunity to address 450 lightworkers, all of whom share the same point of view. Continue reading Lightworkers are My Family

One of the most common over-the-counter drugs used to reduce pain may also be decreasing your ability to be empathetic. Moreover, it may also stifle the magnitude of positive emotions such as joy.
A study out of Ohio State University has found that participants who took acetaminophen were less empathetic when they learned about the misfortunes of others. Acetaminophen is the common ingredient in Tylenol and is also present in hundreds of other medicines, both over-the-counter and prescription, according to the Consumer Healthcare Products Association (CHPA).

Superbugs are without a doubt a major threat affecting all health care systems. Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection is caused by a type of staph bacteria that’s become resistant to many of the antibiotics used to treat ordinary staph infections. Despite attempts by new antibiotics to neutralize the effects of MRSA, none have succeeded. But nature did.
The red berries of the Brazilian peppertree — a weedy, invasive species common in Florida — contain an extract with the power to disarm dangerous antibiotic-resistant staph bacteria, scientists at Emory University have discovered.
The journal Scientific Reports is publishing the finding, made in the lab of Cassandra Quave, an assistant professor in Emory’s Center for the Study of Human Health and in the School of Medicine’s Department of Dermatology.

Everything in life can be done more effectively and positively when done with kindness. It truly only takes a little extra effort to be kind but in the end it will go a very long way. It is a gift that keeps on giving. Choose to make today brighter for yourself and others by sharing kindness.

We are told that the “War on Drugs” is being waged, on our behalf, by our governments and their armed bureaucracies and police forces, to save us from ourselves. “Potential for abuse and harm” are supposed to be the criteria by which the use of drugs is suppressed—the greater a drug’s potential for abuse and harm, the greater and more vigorous the degree of suppression, and the more draconian the penalties applied against its users.
In line with this scheme drugs are typically ranked into a hierarchy: Schedules I, II, and III in the US, Classes A, B, and C in the UK, and so on and so forth all around the world. Thus, to be arrested for possession of a Schedule I or Class A drug results in heavier penalties than possession of a Schedule III or Class C drug. Generally if a drug is deemed to have some currently accepted medical use it is likely to be placed in a lower schedule than if it has none, notwithstanding the fact that it may have potential for abuse or harm. In the absence of any recognized therapeutic effects, drugs that are highly addictive, such as heroin or crack cocaine, or drugs that are profoundly psychotropic, including hallucinogens such as LSD, psilocybin, or DMT, are almost universally placed in the highest schedules and their use attracts the heaviest penalties.

(ANTIMEDIA) Officials were warned twelve years in advance about potential safety hazards at the Oroville Dam in Butte County, California, which now faces the risk of flooding nearby residential areas as a result of a broken spillway and increased rainfall.
Local outlet Mercury News reports:
“Three environmental groups — the Friends of the River, the Sierra Club and the South Yuba Citizens League — filed a motion with the federal government on Oct. 17, 2005, as part of Oroville Dam’s relicensing process, urging federal officials to require that the dam’s emergency spillway be armored with concrete, rather than remain as an earthen hillside.” Continue reading Activists Warned Officials About Oroville Dam 12 Years Ago — but Nobody Listened

For Sheryl Utal, she never truly felt well. Throughout her childhood and into college, she struggled with muscle and joint pain, dry skin, constipation and fatigue. Doctors always told her to simply “toughen up” and dismissed her symptoms. It wasn’t until she was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s — an autoimmune disorder of the thyroid gland — at age of 25 that the pieces of the puzzle finally began to fit together.
Sheryl isn’t alone in her struggle with autoimmune disease; an estimated 22 million Americans are battling some form of dysfunction, 78 percent of whom are women, and the numbers are rising. The occurrence of autoimmune disorders — such as lupus, Crohn’s, celiac, rheumatoid arthritis, type I diabetes, multiple sclerosis and more — has nearly tripled over the last four decades.
