Expectations are very heavy things. They will often drag you down and hold you back from your growth because they very rarely meet reality. They, however, will always be transcended if you choose to release them. Give yourself the gift of letting them go and, in that freedom, know that you are doing what is best for you. ~ Creator

What happens when we die? Who really knows? But to deem these questions completely unanswerable is absurd in light of all the evidence that’s emerged over the past view decades. Sure, contemplating what happens after death can be a little too ‘out there’ for some people, it can even contradict long-held belief systems that we’ve been holding on to for so long, with a tight grip, so much so that it can be hard to even entertain an alternate perspective that’s backed with some type of credible evidence. It’s called cognitive dissonance. Continue reading Where Do We Go When We Die? Signs That Consciousness Remains After Death Are Increasing

Someone on another site just accused “New-Age Philosophy” of following gurus and failing to think for ourselves.
I don’t think the matter can be captured quite that simply.
Let me take an analogy from the instructions that were passed along to me when I was training to hear refugee claims.
I was told that I needed to reach a fair and impartial decision after review of all the relevant and credible evidence. Continue reading Mindless We are Not; Neither are We Slavish

It’s been almost 20 years since the massacre at Columbine High School. That was in 1999, when cable news was really just beginning to sinks its teeth into American culture.
It was a new format, and for the first time such horrific news was in your face, everywhere you went, all the time. People watched in rapt attention as 24 hour coverage of the shootings went on for days and weeks afterward. Continuous replays of audio and video of the event, witness testimonies, candle light vigils, pundits contemplating every angle and facet of the horror were a new thing for us at that time. Continue reading Will the Real Crisis Actors Please Stand Up?

U.S. Right to Know sued the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) today over CDC’s failure to comply with the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and provide documents in response to six requests about its interactions with The Coca-Cola Company.
The public records requests are part of an investigation USRTK is conducting into Coca-Cola’s influence at the CDC and the company’s impact on public policy. Public health evidence suggests that the consumption of sugary sodas is implicated in the obesity epidemic, and may be responsible for tens of thousands of deaths per year. Nevertheless, evidence gathered to date indicates that CDC staff provided political guidance to Coca-Cola, allowed Coca-Cola to lobby the CDC, and accepted contributions from Coca-Cola via the CDC Foundation, which has disclosed such contributions as recently as last year. Continue reading U.S. Right to Know Sues CDC for Documents about Its Ties to Coca-Cola

James Brunt is an artist known for bringing attention back to the finer details that nature has to offer us. While natural landscapes are often breathtaking on their own, imagine stumbling across one of his creations. James uses natural materials and objects he finds around his home in Yorkshire, England and creates his art in places like beaches, forests and parks.
He is very mindful of not disturbing the land and has created his own code of ethics, “I am very conscious of the environment around me and take into consideration many things when deciding to make a piece of work. This code that I work to now has developed over time as my understanding of my surroundings grows. It wasn’t always the case, but it is now.” Continue reading Artist Organizes Natural Objects Into Elaborate Mandalas For You To Find

Do you choose to be weak or strong? You may believe this comes from how you were raised, where you come from, what you have experienced or how you live your life. The Universe is here to tell you that both things come from within and depends solely on your thoughts and actions. Jut like making a conscious decision toward joy, happiness, love, inclusion and peace…it is your choice, it has always been your choice. ~ Creator

According to the beliefs of several ancient cultures, the early morning hours may be ideal for meditation and spiritual reflection. New age and spiritual circles will also claim that if you wake between the hours of 3am and 5am, you may be going through a spiritual awakening.
Although it’s difficult to prove if any of these claims are true, I would like to share some beliefs of the Secoya tribe of Ecuador. This indigenous tribe’s way of life is entwined with its traditions and ceremonies, even today, when most of the world has become Westernized. Continue reading Ancient Cultures Suggest Morning Meditation May Lead to a Deeper Experience

Great Britain is proving just how great it is, and it is using a six-year-old-boy to do it. Proving that the Western world is a symbol of oppression, not freedom, the UK Home Office has rejected a plea from Alfie Dingley’s family and even MPs to allow Alfie access to cannabis to treat a rare form of childhood epilepsy that can cause up to 30 seizures a day and numerous hospital visits.
Of course, one could ask the obvious question: Why does anyone have to plea to use a plant in a country that never shuts up about how free it is? Continue reading Rules is Rules – UK Govt Forces 6-Year-Old to Suffer 30 Seizures a Day, No Weed for You
Positive Vibrations by Cedella Marley, A Nice Time
We are all capable of making the world a better place. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that it’s impossible to make a difference without money and time. Spreading love and joy can be accomplished in a matter of minutes with yourself as the only resource.
If we set our intentions to make the world a better place one day at a time, the significance of small good deeds will be great. The joy we feel when we help the world is only a small part of the real changes that takes place when we make random acts of kindness a part of everyday life.
One Love… Cedella
