What do you consider sacred? For me, the sacred is anything involving enlightenment or higher states of consciousness. My definition of sacred is laxer than others, because I consider some worldly things to either be a) sacred or b) something that opens the doors to the sacred.
For some, the sacred can only be something that directly involves higher states of consciousness. My definition is expanded to include things like teacher plants (natural psychedelic substances) that provide a glimpse of the true sacred states of being.
I recommend moderation with any drug whether you use it in a spiritual context or not. But if used with the right intent in mind, natural psychedelic drugs can aid the spiritual journey. Continue reading Marijuana and the Sacred

BREAKING – Today, Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, sticking to his campaign pledge, introduced legislation to legalize marijuana in Canada. But not just medical marijuana – recreational marijuana. A milestone in the country’s history and one for the world, too.
While many countries have decriminalized or allowed the medical use of marijuana, Trudeau’s bill – which is expected to pass – will make Canada the second nation after Uruguay to completely legalize cannabis for consumers. Media is warning that “experts” are working out the kinks before sales can begin. Each province will decide how marijuana can be distributed and sold within its territory, including prices and age limits. Continue reading O CANNABIS!

Hate crime incidents abound in America today, and it is not only small minorities or the marginalized that are affected. In the small village of Wellsville in New York State, a swastika was painted onto a building on a softball field along with the words “MAKE AMERICA WHITE AGAIN”, while on the other end of the spectrum, a white man involved in a traffic accident was beaten and robbed by a group of black people, in Chicago. In a video of the incident circulating widely on Facebook late last year, bystanders were heard shouting “Don’t vote Trump!” Continue reading Here’s What We Can Do to Reduce Hate in the World Around Us

Everyone has things that they tend to like and dislike, enjoy and despise, resonate with and find repulsive. And I think it’s safe to say that most of us would agree our gift of free will has played an enormous role in deciding what goes where into which category.
But what about certain beliefs we cannot seem to shed even though we are consciously aware of the pain they cause us and those around us? Where do those beliefs come from and why is it so hard sometimes to let them go? Continue reading How Core Beliefs Shape Your Reality

When the chemical attack occurred last week in Idlib, Syria, the Western military alliance and mainstream media immediately pointed their finger toward Assad. However, independent journalists and alternative news networks including CE questioned this, claiming that it could just be another false flag attack orchestrated by the West in order to justify military intervention for ulterior motives.
The White Helmets were immediately on the scene of the attack, an organization funded by the West that’s painted as being a group of peacekeepers who provide aid to victims, when in reality most of the help they give is to the terrorists. Meanwhile, back at the White House President Trump ordered 50 missile strikes against the Syrian military base in response. Continue reading Assad Says Syria Chemical Attack Was “Fabricated” By The U.S. & Is “Hand-In-Glove With Terrorists”
Excerpt from Message from the International Committee for October 17
Extreme poverty endangers the lives and spirit of people – more children, young persons and adults have lost their lives from extreme poverty and hunger than from any armed conflict humankind has ever known.
Every single day of their lives, people living in extreme poverty are challenged and threatened by lack of food, shelter and access to essential services. Often, they live in precarious, degraded, and insecure living environments. And when they can find employment, they have to toil long hours in jobs that pay low wages with little or no job security, often under hazardous working conditions. Continue reading Ending the Violence of Extreme Poverty: Promoting Empowerment and Building Peace

The Divine Mother said recently that she would not discuss the Divine Plan at its highest levels on the radio show. Rather she’d discuss the Plan for the Ascension of Gaia and our plans within that Plan.
I also know that she leaves it to us to amplify matters she either just lightly touches on or expects us to take up entirely. The subject of the Divine Plan at its highest levels she seems to have left entirely up to us to amplify.
I’m happy to leap into the breach. Recklessly. Why? Let me digress. Continue reading It All Works Out in the Final Reel

Although it is mass-produced, mass promoted, legal, and ingested by a multitude of people all over the world, most people don’t ever consider or understand the spiritual consequences of drinking alcohol.
Let’s begin by taking a look at the etymology of the Word alcohol. Etymology means the root of the word… where it is derived from.
The word “Alcohol” comes from the Arabic “al-kuhl” which means “BODY EATING SPIRIT”, and gives root origins to the English term for “ghoul”. In Middle Eastern folklore, a “ghoul” is an evil demon thought to eat human bodies, either as stolen corpses or as children. Continue reading The Spiritual Consequences of Alcohol Consumption
