You might have heard that this winter, temperatures in Florida have been so low that iguanas have fallen out of trees, seemingly frozen. But did you know the cold weather has affected other animals in the state?
The low temperatures have particularly hurt sea turtles, “freezing” them to the point that they can’t swim or move. Fortunately, rescuers have saved, treated, and released roughly 1,000 affected turtles, helping them in a time when the cold would’ve killed them.

Light, love, and awareness are names for three divine qualities as we experience them from our vantage point.
Viewed from the One’s natural state, I have no doubt that things appear entirely different. But we’re not there at this moment. We’re here, down in Fourth Dimensionality, where the living is dense. We see Light, feel Love, and are aware. Continue reading Reflections on the Awareness Game

A new study showed that abusive alcohol users who also use cannabis are less likely to develop all types of liver disease.
A group of researchers set out to “determine the effects of cannabis use on the incidence of liver disease in individuals who abuse alcohol.” They wanted to see if the observed anti-inflammatory effects of cannabis also affect the development of liver disease. The research was headed up by Adeyinka Charles Adejumo of North Shore Medical Center in Salem, Massachusetts. Adejumo also works at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. Continue reading Cannabis May Protect Alcohol Users from Liver Disease, Research Shows

A great conclusion reached by the most intensive and dedicated independent researchers on geoengineering (seeking an explanation for why our skies are sprayed nearly every day), is this: the mention of global warming or climate change as an imminent threat to humanity by powerful individuals and institutions is a coordinated effort to eventually justify many things, ranging from carbon credits and such, to spraying the skies and engaging in open, full-scale geoengineering. Continue reading The Strongest Evidence that “Climate Change” is a Strategy to Justify Spraying the Skies
Positive Vibrations by Cedella Marley, A Nice Time
Everything you’ve ever accomplished started out as a thought. Like any powerful force, thoughts can be used positively or negatively. Your thoughts can bring about great things, but they also have the power to be hurtful or destructive.
This power can easily be taken for granted because it doesn’t require much effort so it may seem like not much of a deal. It is a fundamental ability which can form the basis for any achievement you can imagine. Thoughts are powerful and can have far-reaching effects, so focus your thoughts in ways to construct the most positive results.
One Love… Cedella

“If we can feel that it is not our voice, not our fingers, but some reality deep inside our heart which is expressing itself, then we will know that it is the soul’s music.” – Sri Chinmoy
Have you ever picked up a guitar or put in your favorite CD and let the music carry you away to a place of bliss and ecstasy? Most people might not understand where this euphoric feeling comes from, but in my opinion, it comes from an innately spiritual place. Music elevates our consciousness and introduces us to a spiritual reality that’s comprised of pure sound and color, and this is why it appeals to so many people. There’s obviously something mystical about music. Continue reading (Repost) Music: The Language of Spirit

Art can reveal so much about a culture. Sadly, many of the masterpieces created throughout the centuries have been lost due to erosion and the passing of time. On a positive note, not all is lost. To determine what our ancestors painted on rocks and engraved into stone, researchers from Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia, developed a new imaging technique. The technology has allowed them to re-examine Egyptian art and find details that were lost over the years. Continue reading Thanks to New Digital Imaging Tool, Hidden Egyptian Paintings Have Finally Been Revealed

If you want to live your purpose, the first thing you should do is leave your comfort zone. Although it’s, well, comfortable, staying there can squash the dreams of anyone looking to pursue their passion. Especially if you want to succeed independently, choosing comfort over hard work will most certainly land you back in the rat race.
Obviously, it’s good to stop once and a while to rest so you don’t burn out. Everything has its place and time; but spending too much time resting will effectively prevent you from working hard or succeeding. Continue reading 5 Reasons to Push Past Your Comfort Zone
