(ANTIMEDIA) The United States’ first certified organic fast food chain also pays its workers a living wage — and they’re having success with consumers as they expand beyond their first two locations.
Organic Coup was founded by the leaders of Costco’s highly lucrative organic division. Under the leadership of Dennis Hoover, a 33-year veteran of the wholesale chain, Costco became one of the country’s largest organic retailers, even lending funds to organic farmers to help them keep up with demand. Hoover launched Organic Coup last year, and thanks to his reputation, the growing chain secured funding from Jim Sinegal, Costco’s founder and former CEO, and Richard Galanti, Costco’s Chief Financial Officer.

Have you ever noticed that our own lives are reflected in nature? That we are actually so connected to our Earth that all that exists within it can be viewed as the macrocosm of our personal development as souls?
While connecting with the Earth the other day, literally putting my hands in the soil, I had a flash of insight about what I’d been experiencing internally… Continue reading How Personal Transformation Works: Just Observe the Natural World

There are some “scientists” out there who believe that the mind-body connection is complete pseudoscience. This is very strange, especially given the fact that countless peer-reviewed studies published by many reputable scientists and institutions have shown a direct connection between our mind and our body.
We’ll get to some more examples later in the article, but first let’s draw attention to a group of researchers who say they’ve developed a way to measure the physiological phenomena associated with mindfulness-based stress reduction. They have proven the real-time physiological effects of spiritual practice, specifically the way heart and brain activity actually synchronize.

Love is my God.
There is no God that is not love.
If “God” were to say something
That was not of love,
That would not be God for me.
Love is everything.
Therefore, you must be love.
I must be love.
God is everything.
Therefore, you must be God.
I must be God.
God is eternal.
Therefore you, I, and everything,
In one form or another,
Must be eternal.
What’s to fear?

There is a rift between the world as we see it and the world as it really is. Science and spirit are our primary tools for closing this gap in our understanding, and at the edge of this rift has always been psychic phenomenon like telepathy, premonition and the familiar sixth sense.
Many people experience these phenomenon with regularity, yet they escape scientific explanation, even though a large and historically deep body of experiential and anecdotal evidence exists. This library of evidence prevents dismissal of the psychic as either a figment of the imagination or the existence of an archaic belief system that still has imprints on the mind. This evidence implores to investigate further rather than reject. Continue reading Science Unravels the Mystery of Everyday Telepathy

Keep Antibiotics Effective Act makes Maryland the second state to restrict agricultural use of antibiotics
Annapolis, Md – The Keep Antibiotics Effective Act (SB422/HB602) will become law without a signature from Governor Larry Hogan, making Maryland the second state in the country after California to meaningfully address the widespread misuse of antibiotics in livestock and poultry. The new law will prohibit the routine use of antibiotics on animals that are not sick, a practice public health experts say can fuel the spread of drug-resistant bacteria.
