2017 has been eventful, and news stories (good and bad) emerge each week that prove we’re at a turning point in our evolution. Some stories exemplify the good in humanity, but others make it clear we’re headed in a wrong direction.
By highlighting the good things people have done, the positive stories show us that not everyone is apathetic or hateful. The negative stories show us we’re certainly not a peaceful civilization, and we still have a lot to learn.
I like to focus on news that shows both realities.

President Trump’s stated intention to close the US off to incoming Muslims spurs me to re-issue an article written in late 2008 to the effect that Muslims did not cause 9/11 and have been used as the (intended) scapegoat ever since.
Al-Qaeda, ISIS and other “terrorist” organizations are alleged to be “New World Order” fronts. The Illuminati cabal actually destroyed the World Trade Center.
Sooner or later we need to stop blaming Muslims for a black op designed to set the wider population against them and distract attention from what’s really happening.
I’d change some of the factual statements made in this article, based on more recent research. But I no longer have time to keep up with the baseline of research in the area. The message remains the same.

Philosophers and pundits have long discussed the nature of ‘reality’ itself. For convenience and simplicity we might consider two parallel ‘realities’: one a ‘physical reality’ (the limitations of the body, the physical environment, the mechanical activities and necessities of day-to-day survival) and another ‘mental’ or ‘psychic reality’: the lens through which your mind organises, filters and constructs both an internal and external landscape – a worldview (or supposition of ‘how things are’) both tactile and emotional.
It seems reasonable to suggest that while ‘physical reality’ (the acquisition of food, shelter, relationships, physical movement etc.) is doubtlessly of primal immediacy, the role of ‘psychic reality’ cannot be overstated in the human experience. We act (alone or in concert with others) according to our interpretation of events, information and stimuli: we move or react in concordance with a framework subtly (or overtly) instilled (or reinforced) by peers, family, media, social mores and the fabric of ‘history’ (as transmitted to us) – a collection of instincts, prejudices, short-cuts and assumptions navigating the approximation of a world our senses deliver to us each waking moment.

One of the many brutal truths about humans is that although it’s something we cannot do without, most of us are quite ignorant when it comes to knowing how our food and water is obtained. Spending very little time with nature, many of us have practically no knowledge of how to achieve food and water self-sufficiency.
We have allowed ourselves to become a mutant race: A major reason for our disconnection from Mother Nature and the resulting inability to be self-sufficient is that we have become overly dependent and taken over by electronics. We have become brainwashed into eking out our narrow everyday existences forever hooked into computers, TVs, cell phones, mp3’s and ‘smart’ (dumb) technologies, threatening our health and wellbeing… Continue reading You Are Free Through Food And Water

I have the pleasure of seeing Cell Biologist, Bruce Lipton speak at a lecture next month and in celebration of that, I thought I’d write about two of my favorite inter-mingling topics: Living in the Heart Space and the power of belief.
Bruce Lipton is perhaps most well-known for his book entitled, “The Biology of Belief” which astutely tears apart the paradigm that we are victims of our genes and heredity. It is a book that has forever changed my life.
Simply put, when one is living in the Heart Space, you are connected to your mind, body and spirit at all times, and keep the awareness of what each needs at all times at the forefront of your consciousness. You face the world with compassion and love, rather than distance, fear or indifference. You feel grounded, not flighty. You feel secure, loved and confident that you are cared for, not like you must struggle to survive, or compete to get where want to be (at the expense of others). And this simple shift in belief, in mindset can literally make all the difference in the world; it can literally be the defining line between life and death.

There is a popular saying, “As above so below, as within so without”. This adage is said to have its origins from the Greek, Hermes Trismegistus, also known as Thoth in ancient Egypt and acknowledged as a ‘scribe for the Gods’. Hermes was credited with thousands of writings of high standing, reputed to be of immense antiquity.
This principle of correspondence speaks to the mirror-image relationship between all cosmos. It simply says that the greater and the lesser are alike. The universe and Earth are of the same pattern. Nature and man reflect each other. By observing one relation you gain knowledge of the reflected whole. Continue reading You Are A Microcosm Of The Macrocosm

(ANTIMEDIA) A regional and international proxy war that began in 2011 could well be on its way to becoming a hot global conflict as Russian and American troops arrive in the same Syrian city.
We’re revolutionizing the news industry, but we need your help! Click here to get started.
According to the Military Times, the U.S. military has launched a “reassurance and deterrence” mission in the Syrian city of Manbij, which is set to become more complicated with the arrival of Russian troops and continued advances by Turkish-backed rebels.

Prescriptions for opioids such as percocet, vicodin have jumped 300 percent in the last decade, and although they are the most commonly prescribed drugs on the market, they are also the most dangerous and addictive drugs, killing thousands of people every year. As patients build up a tolerance, opioids lose their effectiveness with long-term use, which encourages their overuse.
So when a plant comes along that can effectively curb pain without creating a dependency on these popular selling medications, pharmaceutical companies get very get angry. And marijuana does just that. Continue reading Study: Marijuana Decreases Death Rates from Pain Killers by Over 30 Percent

What if one of the simplest practices imaginable could crank up your health to a brand new level? What if you could start this practice tomorrow, first thing in the morning, before your eyes have even really opened, before you’ve brushed your teeth, and before you’ve had that coveted cup of coffee? It’s called the water treatment, and the Japanese culture has been practicing it for hundreds of years with some pretty astounding results.
Before I explain exactly how you do this mind-numbingly easy practice, you should know that the Japanese medical society found first-thing-in-the-morning-water-drinking as an assistant to curing the following diseases: Continue reading These Amazing Benefits Are Yours When You Drink Water on an Empty Stomach
