Restoring the Peace

hummingbirdnew-ehc-295x300By Steve Beckow, Golden Age of Gaia

We only know what we know. I know nothing about how to bring peace to a troubled world.

I have one or two ideas about bringing peace to our own troubled souls.

The best way I know of helping to restore the peace of another who’s troubled is through listening. Continue reading Restoring the Peace


9 Quotes On Overcoming Darkness & Stepping Into The Light

By Andrea Schulman,

In working with the Law of Attraction I have found something very interesting. Many people want to use the Law of Attraction to completely eliminate obstacles and darkness from their lives.

This is understandable, as obstacles and darkness can be frightening, overwhelming and painful.

With that being said though, darkness serves an enormous benefit to us. Transforming dark into light is the most joyous experience any of us can have! Continue reading 9 Quotes On Overcoming Darkness & Stepping Into The Light

This Pavilion Combats Air Pollution With A Basic, But Beautiful Method

By Brianna Acuesta, True Activist

When it comes to air pollution, Vietnam ranks among the worst in the entire world, often making its way onto the list of the 10 nations with the worst air. Like most countries, Vietnam’s countryside has cleaner air but it’s the cities that really plague the nation and are leading to health problems for city dwellers.

One of these cities in Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam, which, not surprisingly, is one of the cities with the worst air pollution in the world. In 2016, the PM2.5 particulate level recorded in Hanoi was seven times higher than the permissible level set by the World Health Organization.

Empathy and the WE Experience

empathy-and-the-we-experience-2-350x265By Melissa Joy Jonsson, Wake Up World

“But feelings can’t be ignored, no matter how unjust or ungrateful they seem.” — Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl

Living from the field of the heart gives us direct access to our innate potential and also provides direct access to our emotional intelligence. Heart-centered awareness does not override emotions. Heart-centered awareness includes emotions and enables us to live fully in integrity as our True Authentic Self. Continue reading Empathy and the WE Experience

Intelligence – Why it is Not Understood and What is it Really?

via The Mind Unleashed

Like me, you’ve surely heard it at some time in your life how somebody has been regarded as intelligent with comments like: “He she must have a high IQ…” However, to describe intelligence as IQ (intelligence quotient) is like telling a troglodyte i.e. someone who’s never seen a house before that a house is a kitchen! Granted, a kitchen is of course included in the makeup of a house, but as IQ is to intelligence it is only part of the whole picture.

Since IQ is an inadequate way of describing intelligence it’s no wonder that the IQ test has been criticised. It is biased towards middle/upper class westernised left-brained individuals while greatly lacking consideration to creativity, assessment of well-rounded character and practical everyday handling of things. In light of this it may not come as a surprise that IQ doesn’t always reflect how successful someone will be in life. Continue reading Intelligence – Why it is Not Understood and What is it Really?

Video: 7 Krishnamurti Quotes On… Nothing

By Wes Annac, Editor, Openhearted Rebel

Jiddu Krishnamurti was a sage, philosopher, and free thinker who encouraged people to look within for solutions to their problems and the problems in the world. He was born to a middle class family in South India on May 11, 1895, and left this earth on February 17, 1986. (1)

As followers of his work might know, Krishnamurti was “discovered” as a child by Theosophical Society leaders Annie Besant and Bishop Leadbeater. They claimed he was the “world teacher” the society had been waiting for. He would go on to have “mystical experiences” as a young man that provided him with a new, unique vision on life. (1)

This would lead him to disconnect from all religions, organizations, and philosophy-driven movements, including the Theosophical Society, and set out on a lone mission to enlighten the people with his unique philosophy. (1) Continue reading Video: 7 Krishnamurti Quotes On… Nothing

7 Examples Where Science Meets Spirituality

By Arjun Walia, Collective Evolution

Things have drastically changed since Galileo was placed under house arrest for his scientifically accurate views, simply because they threatened the beliefs put out by the Catholic Church at the time.

Today, things have changed, to an extent. We still have information that is heavily controlled by the global elite. This small group of people and the corporations they run practically control all aspects of our lives, from media and finance to healthcare, education, and more. Most importantly, they control all of the information we see and read, whilst labelling everything else as ‘fake news.’ Continue reading 7 Examples Where Science Meets Spirituality

First of Its Kind Study Finds Cannabis May Be a “Miracle” Treatment for Autistic Kids

By Claire Bernish, The Free Thought Project, Waking Times

Autism could now be added to the lengthy and perpetually-expanding list of afflictions and symptoms treatable with the one product of nature shamefully prohibited by the federal government — the “miracle” palliative, cannabis.

One in every 68 children in the United States is now affected by autism, and the number of kids coping with the developmental disorder has been increasing at an explosive rate in recent years. With onset most common during infancy and early childhood, autism can impact social and communication skills and may cause repetitive or compulsive behaviors, among other manifestations.

Thousands of Experimental Bacteria-Ridden Mosquitoes Were Just Released in Florida

By Heather Callaghan, Natural Blaze

But don’t worry…….they don’t bite?

The biggest trend for mad scientists now is the Aedes aegypti mosquitoes – the same mosquitoes that are noted for carrying tropical diseases and for getting genetically engineered under the guise of fighting the Zika. Zika is one of the latest banners of scare porn that the mainstream media has foisted on the public in a seeming attempt to pave the way for biotech companies to operate unhindered.
