Taking 100% Responsibility For the World We Have Created

4. The debt we have accumulated can NEVER be paid back as things currently stand. 5. Most government debt is odious and entered into without our conscious agreement, i.e. loans are taken out for reasons we would not agree to, and that don’t help the people of a country. 6. The current system keeps inequality going. It rewards the rich with more riches and makes the poor a slave class indebted to the elite. This doesn’t mean that all rich people are evil. It does mean that having money makes getting more money easier, and having little means getting more money much more difficult.

naction is not acceptable anymore in a world that poisons our food, pollutes our land, air, and water and commits atrocities against, man, animal and nature that would be too horrid even to put in the most garish and bloodied film. But that’s just it. What we are looking at is the egoic conflagration of a consciousness burning in its own self-created hell. It can be a different world though – but not until we accept our responsibility in making this one ‘real.’ While some see ‘God’ as their saviour, a holy man in the sky that will save them from their own egoic acts, others realize that God is within us and can only express through us as we allow. To be more human, we must be more divine – and that means acting in heavenly ways. The movie screen before us only shows us what needs to be set right. Namely, it shows us our overarching ability to shrug off responsibility for our own soul’s growth. This is the world we have created by disowning our responsibility to others and ourselves. For example: Our governments now figure out how we should live for us, without a true consensus or democratic vote of what best serves society. We have given up our rights through apathy and greed, understandably focusing on making ends meet, but also by allowing a system that does not govern for the people by the people, but for the elite, by the elite. As long as we believe we are slaves of this system, we will continue to support it, in conscious and unconscious ways. Doing nothing, however, also supports the current system. While apathy, sometimes called the democratic disease, is understandable, it doesn’t work. People fought so we could vote. Perhaps we are given the illusion of choice in our political systems, but we can vote with more than a slip of paper at a poll. We can vote with our dollars, time and attention. We can vote with our actions in every day things, like telling our grocery stores we won’t patronize them if they keep stocking GMO foods, or starting a car pooling service in our neighbourhoods so that we don’t rely on petroleum. These are just small examples. We gave away our ability to heal ourselves by making doctors, pharmaceutical and insurance companies Gods. The sheer breadth of knowledge about healing and vitality that is offered by mother nature and its keepers, namely our shaman, medicine men and women, tribal elders and ancient teachings from civilizations we have since swept aside, is staggering. Exactly when we decided to give the power to heal ourselves away to Big Pharma is now irrelevant, but we can start to heal ourselves by educating ourselves. Meditation, for example, may seem like a non-action, but it is more effective at healing pain (when done for 80 minutes as indicated in

Page 2

a recent study) than morphine. Countless foods and herbs can cure every nameable disease and self-inquiry and forgiveness (as practiced through Ho’oponopono) can heal disease before it even manifests physically. Just try saying the magic words: “I love You, Please Forgive Me, I am Sorry, and Thank You”as often as you can throughout the day and see how different you feel. There are thousands of herbs and natural substances that will cure cancer, alleviate a common cold, and even cure depression. We don’t need pharmaceuticals and a health care system that poisons us to ‘cure’ us. Modalities like yoga, Thai chi, Qi Gong, Rolfing, acupuncture, energy healing, sound nutrition, exercise, etc. should be the new norm. They are more effective at preventing disease before it even starts and much cheaper than using pharmaceuticals and chemicals at healing us once disease has taken over our bodies. We gave people with PhD’s high rank, not unlike a military official, and allowed them to tell us what was ‘true’ or ‘untrue’ meaning ‘good’ or ‘not good’ for the world at large.  While scientific study is key to the advancement of society, it does little to make us a more well-rounded, happier society if not kept in check. The same experts who made Hiroshima and Fukushima happen could have powered the entire planet with a cleaner (non-uranium based) nuclear energy. NASA can send a rocket to the moon, but not solar power the entire globe? We have more than enough expertise, technology and resources to completely change the world we live in. Let’s put our money behind the individuals and organizations who use their science for good, and leave the bomb-makers and nuclear-fallout guys empty handed. We made banks and the fiat currency ‘real’ when they are totally contrived. When the central banking system rewards debt by bailing out banks and creating inflation, while supporting gambling on a derivatives based market, and can reprint cash with the push of a button while looking at a computer screen, you have to ask yourself – why have we given such a monetary system so much power? It isn’t based on real goods and services anymore – or even a resource like gold or silver. It is based on debt primarily, and lots of smoke and mirrors. Fiat currencies don’t allow accountability and so they don’t work. The Chinese tried, the Romans did too. Greece failed miserably. We can see how miserably the Euro and Dollar are doing. It’s time to refuse the current fiat system and go back to either a bartering system or a currency based on real goods and services, and not the wild speculation by certain fund

managers and banking institutions that leave an entire nation in debt. As Dr. Jude Currivan explains, we need to wake up to the following: 1. Debt and gambling are all the fractional reserve banking system create. 2. The current system creates booms and busts – on purpose. They will never go away. The 1920s stock market crash was due to a boom and bust cycle, as was the Internet boom and bust, the real estate boom and bust, etc. 3. Purely mathematical models of trading and currency valuation don’t account for real people and real circumstances.

We believed that consumerism would bring us closer to our most innate needs – of warmth, security, food, and love, but what we really want is each other. It is now proven that human beings receive just as much, if not more pleasure from a meaningful experience wherein they connect with another human being in a positive way, than merely by getting some new material thing. There are hundreds of studies that prove, beyond having our basic needs met, money doesn’t provide happiness, and neither does having a $250,000 car or a jet airplane. What does make us happier is supporting each other in meaningful ways, sharing what we have and learning something new. We have enough when we look at people around us and the love we share with friends and family instead of ruminating on our bank accounts. We lost our connection to our own higher selves by relying on a middleman. We can see endless versions of giving away our own direct-

Monsanto and the FDA 2 Crime Families Working a Trillion-Dollar Hustle by Jon Rappoport NoMoreFakeNews.com

P

erhaps you remember the ill-fated Just-Label-It campaign. A number of activist groups petitioned the FDA for a federal regulation that would make labelling GMO food mandatory. The petition amassed over a million signatures. But the FDA decided only 394 of these were legitimate, because all the others were electronically submitted in one document. Infuriating? Of course. But that was nothing. Let’s get down to the core of the crime. Imagine this. A killer is put on trial, and the jury, in a surprise verdict, finds him not guilty. Afterwards, reporters interview this killer. He says, “The jury freed me. It’s up to them. They decide. That’s what justice is all about.” Then the press moves along to members of the jury, who say: Well, we had to take the defendant’s word. He said he was innocent, so that’s what we ruled. That’s an exact description of the FDA and Monsanto partnership. When you cut through the verbiage that surrounded the introduction of GMO food into America, you arrive at two key statements. One from Monsanto and one from the FDA, the agency responsible for overseeing, licensing, and certifying new food varieties as safe. Quoted in the New York Times Magazine (October 25, 1998, “Playing God in the Garden”), Philip Angell, Monsanto’s director of corporate communications, famously stated: “Monsanto shouldn’t have to vouchsafe the safety of biotech food. Our interest is in selling as much of it as possible. Assuring its safety is the FDA’s job.” From the Federal Register, Volume 57, No.104, “Statement of [FDA] Policy: Foods Derived from New Plant Varieties,” here is what the FDA had to say on this matter: “Ultimately, it is the food producer who is responsible for assuring safety.” The direct and irreconcilable clash of these two statements is no accident. It’s not a sign of incompetence or sloppy work or a mistake or a miscommunication. It’s a clear signal that the fix was in. Passing the buck back and forth was the chilling and arrogant strategy through which Pandora’s box was pried opened and GMO food was let into the US food supply. In order for this titanic scam to work, the media had to cooperate. Reporters had to be a) idiots and b)sell-outs. With few exceptions, reporters and their editors let the story rest there, as a “he saidhe said” issue. No sane principled journalist would have cut bait at that point, but who said mainstream reporters are sane or principled? Underneath the Monsanto-FDA buckpassing act, there was a conscious deal to give a free pass to GMO crops. This had nothing to do with science or health or “feeding the world.” It was about profits. It was also about establishing a new monopoly on food. Not only would big agribusiness dominate the planet’s food supply, it would strengthen its stranglehold through patents on novel types of seeds which were technologically engineered. It’s very much like saying, “A cob of corn is not a plant, it’s a machine, and we own the rights to every one of those yellow machines.” How was Monsanto able to gather so much clout? There was one reason and one reason only. Putting the world’s food supply into fewer hands was, and is, a major item on the Globalist agenda. If it weren’t, the FDA-Monsanto scam would have been exposed in a matter of weeks or months. Major newspapers and television networks would have attacked the obvious con job like

packs of wild dogs and torn it to pieces. But once the scam had been given a free pass, the primary corporate-government tactic was to accomplish a fait accompli, a series of events that was irreversible. In this case, it was about gene drift. From the beginning, it was well known that GMO plants release genes that blow in the wind and spread from plant to plant, crop to crop, and field to field. There is no stopping it. Along with convincing enough farmers to lock themselves into GMO-seed contracts, Monsanto bought up food-seed companies in

lot of money that had been invested in this, and if you’re against it, you’re Luddites, you’re stupid. There was rhetoric like that even here in this department. You felt like you were almost an alien, disloyal, by trying to present an openminded view on some of these issues being raised. So I pretty much spouted the rhetoric that everybody else around here spouted; it was written into my speeches.” Glickman reveals several things in these remarks: he was spineless; people at the Dept. of Agriculture were madly buying into the Monsanto cover story about feeding the world;

background in manipulation. You have to know what you’re doing. You have to be able to build and sustain support, without giving your game away. Truth be told, governments are full of these pros, who will take any number of causes and turn them into what falsely sounds like good science, good government, good morality, all the while knowing that, on the far shore, sits the real prize: control. These psyop specialists are hired to help make overarching and planet-wide agendas come true, as populations are brought under sophisticated and pathological elites who care, for example, about feeding the world as much as a collector cares about paralyzing and pinning butterflies on a panel in a glass case. Here is David Rockefeller, writing in his 2003 Memoirs: Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure—one world, if you will. If that is the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.”

The Globalists Play for Keeps

order to engineer the seeds…and the gene-drift factor was the ace in the hole. Sell enough GMO seeds, plant enough GMO crops, and you flood the world’s food crops with Monsanto genes.  Back in the 1990s, the prince of darkness, Michael Taylor, who has moved through the revolving door between the FDA and Monsanto several times, and is now the czar of food safety at the FDA—Taylor said, with great conviction, that the GMO revolution was unstoppable; within a decade or two, an overwhelming percentage of food grown on planet Earth would be GMO. Taylor and others knew. They knew about gene drift, and they also knew that ownership of the world’s food, by a few companies, was a prime focus for Globalist kings who intended to feed the population through Central Planning and Distribution. “We feed these people; we hold back food from those people; we send food there; we don’t send food here.” Control food and water, and you hold the world in your hand. Here is evidence that, even in earlier days, Monsanto knew about and pushed for the Globalist agenda. Quoted by J. Flint, in his 1998 “Agricultural Giants Moving Towards Genetic Monopolism,” Robert Fraley, head of Monsanto’s agri-division, stated: “What you are seeing is not just a consolidation of [Monsanto-purchased] seed companies. It’s really a consolidation of the entire food chain.” And as for the power of the propaganda in that time period, I can think of no better statement than the one made on January 25th, 2001, by the outgoing US Secretary of Agriculture, Dan Glickman. As reported by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Glickman said: “What I saw generically on the pro-biotech side was the attitude that the technology was good and that it was almost immoral to say that it wasn’t good, because it was going to solve the problems of the human race and feed the hungry and clothe the naked. And there was a

and there had to be a significant degree of infiltration at his Agency. The last point is key. This wasn’t left to chance. You don’t get a vocal majority of Dept. of Agriculture personnel spouting the Monsanto propaganda merely because the fairy tale about feeding the world sounds so good. No, there are people working on the inside to promote the “social cause” and make pariahs out of dissenters. You need special background and training to pull that off. It isn’t an automatic walk in the park. This is professional psyop and intelligence work. I’ve done some investigation of various groups on both the left and the right, and I’ve seen some pros in action. They’re good. They know how to leverage ideas and slogans and ideals. They know how to defame opponents and find just the right words to sink them. They know how to turn high-flying but vague words about “humanity” into moral imperatives. This isn’t rinky-dink stuff. To tune up bureaucrats and scientists, you have to have a

Owning the food of the world is part of their strike-force action plan, and Monsanto is the technocratic arm of that plan. Meanwhile, the controlled press treats the whole sordid Monsanto story with its timehonoured policy of “he said-he said.” This policy dictates that stories merely present both sides of a conflict without drawing conclusions. It applies across the board—except when it doesn’t. For example, for reasons too complex to go into here, the Washington Post decided to suspend its policy in the Watergate case. Woodward and Bernstein were assigned to investigate what was going on behind White House denials and obfuscations. The same thing could be done with Monsanto, and it would be far easier. The lies and crimes and cover-ups are everywhere. You could wear sunglasses and find them in the dark. The NY Times and the Washington Post could sell millions more papers on the back of the Monsanto story alone. It would be a bonanza for them. But no. They don’t care. They’d rather keep declining and losing readers. They’d rather die. Normally, a business doesn’t commit suicide, especially when it sees exactly how to resuscitate itself. But here we are dealing with an agenda which can’t be disturbed. Globalism, and its agri-techno partner, Monsanto, are creating a planetary future. Major media are part and parcel of that op. They are selling it.

by Fredalupe!

wonderful whirlwind of change has been blowing of late, perhaps you’ve felt it stir you somehow. The New Agora has been carried far afield and across the lands these last few months. From Europe to South America, California to Calgary, Mexico to Japan, knowledge and truth are spreading out their wings in a grand flight of consciousness that has even the ignorant gaping towards the heavens. Is it a bird, a plane? It’s Freedom, Baby. So, dry your tears and wipe your bum, come join the dance and have some fun. This is what the so-called over-shmoes, anklebiters and other assorted parasites don’t want everyone to know: Freedom is a blast… and kicking evil’s ass is a delight to boot! Ha! Imagine! Folks everywhere are waking up. Cataracts of apathy no longer blind so completely; fear’s dread paralysis is being conquered by self administered awareness. Humour, forgiveness, appreciation, compassion, creativity, simple beautiful friendship, these facets of Love, divine and electric with power, fuel and nourish all those in the flow. Call it the Tao or just Life, we are Cosmic and everywhere. Adjectives could forever try to scale the descriptive heights of our glorious and unavoidable destiny without ever reaching the summit. But what an awesome view! What a climb! I almost didn’t make it to the latest peak, but along the way I was helped and helped again. We really aren’t alone in this evolution of ours so thanks for all your participation! I have two super-powered quotes to share with you; both kicked my ass for months (actually it’s ongoing) and forced me to look at my methods, manias, habits, addictions and general way of being and doing with a new vigour and an unflinching, razor sharp, completely freeing, honesty. Maybe they’ll help you in some way, open a door, shine some light, make you go hmmmm: “You cannot depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus.” - Mark Twain This disclaimer ought to be printed wherever humans are to be found in any number. What we perceive tells more about who is doing the perceiving then what is being perceived. For myself I realized that there were warps and other distortions mucking about with what I saw (or thought I saw, or told myself I saw), skewing much into the negative, to the degree that I could no longer really get past my lack of trust for the world and my life in it. What an ordeal! Having one’s imagination high-jacked into generating a life of worse case scenarios sure can teach you a heck of a lot

about the very real power of manifestation and the imagination. Amazing and completely natural tools, gifts for making dreams or their reverse come true, ones that we absolutely embody! Yikes. Crazy super power. Big power equals big responsibility. Spidey’s uncle was right. I have found that reclaiming this responsibility for oneself is a one step solution to effect total transformation. Shazam! “Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working.” - Pablo Picasso Here’s the kicker. Sitting around waiting for lightning to strike just ain’t the kinda gesture that gets it all moving. Imagine my surprise. We are the bus we’re waiting for. Ha. Awesome winds of inspiration catch the open sail; it’s the well manned tiller that plays and surfs the waves. The writing, sculpting hand, the dancing feet, the whirling body, the moving become the movement, the smile becomes the laugh of Love blossoming. We play and play is divine. Forever and infinite, endlessly mysterious: We are the Divine at Play. There’s obviously a lot more to this story for each and every one of us, bar none, and the great news is that we each get to discover all that for ourselves, moment by moment, step by step, breath by breath, to the drum of our beating hearts, our pulsing stars, all together now, a’dance with the music of Life.

Smart Meter Awareness I

by Brian Thiessen BC-Freedom.com

f you have been looking around for a solution to keep BC Hydro from putting on a smart meter now there is one. It has been working for months all over BC and has not once failed. There have been other signs and documents that are out there but all have failed at one point or another. The documents you will find here (http://tinyurl.com/ ca45eke) will be of great importance for you, even if a meter has not been installed as of yet for whatever reason. It is important to use the law, rather than get complacent and assume that because you do not have a meter, they will simply never come back. Also, if you have received a meter, there is information at this link that you will want to become familiar with. Worse case scenario please get this link to people you know so they can take the appropriate actions and use the ONLY documents/processes out there that have been %100 effective in keeping meters off. You can send any questions to the site. May we suggest

you consider becoming a follower of the site so you can get updates from BC Freedom as the smart meter saga unfolds (to it’s eventual end. At the site there are also other links and info on smart meters as far as health, privacy, fires and so on. Please study them and pass them to friends and other loved ones. As with any issue, it starts with awareness and awareness makes numbers. Only with that can we defeat this issue.

Suspect In Any Terror Attack by Paul Joseph Watson & Kurt Nimmo InfoWars.com

I

n the aftermath of the Boston Marathon attack, with authorities struggling to retain a coherent official narrative in the face of photos which show numerous unidentified identically dressed men wearing black backpacks at the scene of the blast, it’s necessary to revisit the evidence of why government should be the very first suspect in the event of any terrorist atrocity. False flag terrorism – attacks manufactured or provoked (provocateured) by governments and then blamed on other groups – is a tactic that stretches back almost 2,000 years.

later, early on the morning of February 15, an explosion destroyed the forward third of the ship anchored in Havana’s harbour, killing more than 270 American sailors. President McKinley blamed Spain after the U.S. Naval Court of Inquiry declared that a naval mine caused the explosion. American newspapers blamed the Spanish despite a lack of evidence. “You furnish the pictures and I’ll furnish the war,” newspaper tycoon William Randolph Hearst told Frederic Remington after the illustrator reported that the situation in Cuba did not warrant invasion. A number of historians and researchers later argued that the ship was blown up by the United States to provide a false flag pretext to invade Cuba and expel Spain. The United States occupied Cuba from 1898 until 1902, although an amendment to a joint resolution of Congress forbid the U.S. to annex the country.

Nero and the Great Fire of Rome The Roman consul and historian Cassius Dio, his contemporary Suetonius and others say the Emperor Nero was responsible for the Great Fire of Rome in 64 AD. Legend claims Nero had one-third of the city torched as an excuse to build Domus Aurea, a 300 acre palatial complex that included a towering statue of himself, the Colossus of Nero. Prior to the fire, the Roman Senate had rejected the emperor’s bid to level a third of the city to make way for a ‘Neropolis,’ an urban renewal project. The Roman historian Tacitus wrote that when the population of Rome held Nero responsible for the fire, he shifted blame on the Christians for ‘hating the human race’ and starting the fire.

The Spanish American War: Remember the Maine By the late 1800s, the United States was looking for an excuse to kick Spain out of Cuba. U.S. business was heavily invested in sugar, tobacco and iron on the Caribbean island. The U.S.S. Maine was sent to Havana in January of 1898 to protect these business interests after a local insurrection broke out. Three weeks

Wilson’s Pretext for War: The Sinking of the Lusitania Nearly two thousand travellers, including one hundred Americans, were killed on May 7, 1915, when a German U-boat torpedoed the RMS Lusitania, a luxury Cunard Line British ocean liner. Prior to the sinking, the German embassy in Washington issued a warning. Newspapers in the United States refused to print the warning or acknowledge the German claim that the ship carried munitions. Wilson’s government issued a flurry of diplomatic protests after the sinking and exploited the tragedy two years later as a pretext for America to enter the First World War. Nearly a hundred years later, in 2008, divers discovered the Lusitania carried more than four million rounds of rifle ammunition. “There were literally tons and tons of stuff stored in unrefrigerated cargo holds that were dubiously marked cheese, butter and oysters,”  Gregg Bemis, an American businessman who owns the rights to the wreck and is funding its exploration, told The Daily Mail.

Hitler’s Fascist Dictatorship: The Reichstag Fire In February of 1933, a month after convincing Germany’s president that parliament must be eliminated, Hitler and the Nazis instigated the Reichstag fire. Hitler then urged president Hindenburg to issue an emergency decree restricting personal liberty, including the right to free expression and a free press, limitations on the rights of association and assembly, warrantless searches of homes, property confiscation, and violations of postal, telegraphic and telephonic communications permissible beyond the legal limits

otherwise prescribed. The Nazis used the decree to crack down on their political opponents . They worked behind the scenes to force through the Enabling Act, which legally allowed Hitler to obtain plenary powers and establish a dictatorship. Gestapo Reichsmarschall Hermann Goring would admit that, “The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.”

Prelude to World War: The Gleiwitz Incident Six years after the Reichstag Fire, the Nazis staged the Gleiwitz incident. Nazi commandos raided a German radio station in Gleiwitz, Upper Silesia, Germany. The raid was part of Operation Himmler, a series of operations undertaken by the SS as Hitler set the stage for the invasion of Poland and the start of the Second World War. SS operatives dressed in Polish uniforms attacked the radio station, broadcast an antiGerman message in Polish, and left behind the body of a German Silesian known for sympathizing with the Poles. The corpse was then offered to the press as evidence that the Poles had attacked the radio station.

Israeli False Flag Terror: The Lavon Affair In 1954, the Israelis activated a terrorist cell in response to the United States making friends with the Egyptian government and its pan-Arab leader, Gamal Abdel Nasser. The Israelis were worried Nasser would nationalize the Suez Canal and continue Egypt’s blockade of Israeli shipping through the canal. Israeli Prime Minister David Ben Gurion decided a false flag terrorist attack on American interests in Egypt would sour the new relationship. He recruited and dispatched a terror cell that pretended to be Egyptian terrorists. The plan, however, contained a fatal flaw. Israel’s top secret cell, Unit 131, was infiltrated by Egyptian intelligence. After a member of the cell was arrested and interrogated, he revealed the plot and this led to more arrests. Israeli agents were subjected to a public trial revealing details of the plan to firebomb the U.S. Information Agency’s libraries, a British-owned MetroGoldwyn Mayer theatre, a railway terminal, the central post office, and other targets. In order to deflect blame, the Israeli government tried to frame its own Defence Minister, Pinhas Lavon, but the true nature of the plot was eventually made public.

Operation Northwoods: Targeting American Citizens In the covert war against the communist regime in Cuba under the CIA’s Operation Mongoose, the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff unanimously proposed state-sponsored acts of terrorism in side the United States. The plan included shooting down hijacked American airplanes, the sinking of U.S. ships, and the shooting of Americans on the streets of Washington, D.C. The outrageous plan even included a staged NASA disaster that would claim the life of astronaut John Glenn. Reeling under the embarrassing failure of the CIA’s botched Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba, president Kennedy rejected the plan in March of 1962. A few months later, Kennedy denied the plan’s author, General Lyman Lemnitzer, a second term as the nation’s highest ranking

military officer. In November of 1963, Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas.

Gulf of Tonkin: Phantom Attack on the U.S. Military On August 4, 1964, President Lyndon Johnson went on national television and told the nation that North Vietnam had attacked U.S. ships. “Repeated acts of violence against the armed forces of the United States must be met not only with alert defence, but with a positive reply. That reply is being given as I speak tonight,” Johnson declared. Congress soon passed the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution, which provided Johnson with preapproved authority to conduct military operations against North Vietnam. By 1969, over 500,000 troops were fighting in Southeast Asia. Johnson and his Secretary of Defence, Robert McNamara, had bamboozled Congress and the American people. In fact, North Vietnam had not attacked the USS Maddox, as the Pentagon claimed, and the “unequivocal proof” of an “unprovoked” second attack against the U.S. warship was a ruse.

Operation Gladio: State Sponsored Terror Blamed on the Left Following the Second World War, the CIA and Britain’s MI6 collaborated through NATO on Operation Gladio, an effort to create a “stay behind army” to fight communism in the event of a Soviet invasion of Western Europe. Gladio quickly transcended its original mission and became a covert terror network consisting of right wing militias, organized crime elements, agent provocateurs and secret military units. The so-called stay behind armies were active in  France, Belgium, Denmark, The Netherlands, Norway, Germany, and Switzerland. Gladio’s “Strategy of Tension” was designed to portray leftist political groups in Europe as terrorists and frighten the populace into voting for authoritarian governments. In order to carry out this goal, Gladio operatives conducted a number of deadly terrorists attacks that were blamed on leftists and Marxists. In August of 1980, Gladio operatives bombed a train station in Bologna, killing 85 people. Initially blamed on the Red Brigades, it was later discovered that fascist elements within the Italian secret police and Licio Gelli, the head of the P2 Masonic Lodge, were responsible for the terror attack. Other fascist groups, including Avanguardia Nazionale and Ordine Nuovo, were mobilized and engaged in terror. Operation Gladio ultimately claimed the lives of hundreds of people across Europe. According to Vincenzo Vinciguerra, a Gladio terrorist serving a life-sentence for murdering policemen, the reason for Gladio was simple. It was designed to force these people, the Italian public, to turn to the state to ask for greater security. This is the political logic that lies behind all the massacres and the bombings which remain unpunished, because the state cannot convict itself or declare itself responsible for what happened.

Terror in the Modern Age In the United States, the modern age of terrorism is defined by the FBI’s policy of fomenting and provocateuring patsy terrorists to carry out attacks via entrapment. As the New York Times reported last year, the vast majority of domestic terror plots in recent years were “facilitated by the F.B.I.”

Obsessive Debunking Disorder

Are Hardcore Skeptics and Debunkers Actually Brain Deficient? Their Own Beloved ‘Hard Science’ Might Well Suggest Many Are.

W

e have all encountered them. The men and women of ‘reason’. The self-appointed guardians and vanguards of materialist dogma along with their absolute faith and belief in official government and corporate press releases. The debunker, the hardcore skeptic—how they love to compulsively ridicule and mock all they deem ‘pseudoscience’ and ‘conspiracy theory’—while also declaring anyone who thinks outside the box or questions the prevailing orthodoxy, a “moron” and a “tard”. It matters not how solid the evidence you present them with is, nor how flimsy their own state-sanctioned ‘hard science’ which they smugly offer up as their rebuttal; they are driven by a messianic compulsion to root out unscientific ‘idiots’ with all the zeal and fanaticism similar to that of a Dominican or Jesuit charging through southern France in the twelfth century seeking out ‘heretics’ for the burning. Irony does not even come into their myopic worldview—unless of course a government, corporate or university press office states this. Then it becomes an undisputed fact. Thanks to the likes of Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens, these Internet-bound warriors of rationality see ‘Creationists’ and ‘hidden Christians’ around every corner and seek to root them out and expose them as part and parcel of their own peculiar secular witch hunt mentality. The reality is that apart from their own kind—other self-proclaimed non-’idiots’— most people find such arrogant and obnoxious debunkers and hardcore skeptics to be strangely angry and boorish, and often confrontational to the point of being hysterical. So many of them seem to lack basic social and behavioural skills when ‘debating’ with their ‘kook’ of choice. Their absolutism can be staggering at times. Yet, despite all this, they have somehow come to consider themselves ‘cool’ and even ‘sexy’ within the last decade. This is simply a lack of critical thinking on their behalf; a distorted worldview where only they are right and everyone else is an idiot. However, when you strip down their whole mandate into its constituent parts, one soon finds that most of these ‘scientifically’ minded crusaders have no actual accredited scientific background, and the entire thrust of their endeavours remains nothing less than unconditional servitude and unquestioned devotion to authority figures and the status quo. They seek entrenched orthodoxy, not exploration and wonder. They see an open-minded individual as being akin to a brain being infected with a disease, or the mark of a witch. They act as if Creationists are a real danger to human survival, as if the US Bible Belt has extended beyond its

absurd boundaries. Creationists are about as much danger to the advances made by scientists in the last two hundred years as Granada was to Ronald Reagan back in the early 1980s. It is only fair to point out that there are also healthy skeptics who genuinely do look at anomalies and unexplained phenomena within the natural and unseen cosmos with a cautious eye. They will at least indulge a novel or radical opinion and look at the evidence before taking a stance—often it is an arbitrary position— based on using the Scientific Method coupled with Carl Sagan’s “extraordinary evidence”. They are generally polite and only moderately condescending at worst. The debunker and the hardcore skeptics, on the other hand, will even attack these openminded Materialists, similar to how a flying saucer cult will have very public witch hunts of so-so members who have not shown their unconditional devotion to the messages sent from the ‘space brothers’. The Irony is that many of the open-minded skeptics that they attack often have a scientific or engineering background, and these folks are being attacked by debunkers whose sum total of their own quest for reason and logic rarely extends beyond procuring a ‘Mythbusters’ DVD box set or having a poster of Richard Dawkins on their wall. Any Reductionist fence-sitters will be treated with ridicule and contempt—even fascistic vitriol and vicious insults. There is simply no grey areas within the concrete consciousness of the debunker or the hardcore skeptic; instead, only a kind of scientific idealism—and idealism, both secular or otherwise, is really just a nice way of saying ‘fascism’. So what gives? How come they behave the way they do? A complete lack of social intelligence? An inability to debate, share interesting banter and listen to what another person is saying which might be at odds with their own beliefs? Surprisingly, their own beloved science might well provide the answer to these questions. It may well be an over-stimulation of the left hemisphere of their brains leading to a kind of self-induced schizophrenia whereby the right hemisphere of their brain has been switched off. Hence, why they place no value on other forms of non-lateral intelligence: noetic wisdom and intuition.

some very speculative assumptions about the specific roles the two hemispheres of our brain play in our cognitive awareness and functioning. The general understanding developed that the left hemisphere of the brain was essentially analytical and concerned with processes and quantitative evaluation, while the right hemisphere of the human brain was where the artists and dreamers resided. This is a very simplistic understanding; and in recent years, imaging research has shown that both hemispheres share more or less the same attributes, and both can equally process the same cognitive functionality. However, and this is crucial, there is a level of redundancy in both hemispheres. The growing speculation for the need for two (asymmetrical) brain hemispheres is to perform two acts of awareness. The left brain is devoted to specific tasks and objectives, while the right brain acts as a kind of peripheral awareness. There has to be a kind of background seeing, as well as immediate attention to the task at hand. Think of an early human on the side of a riverbank trying to spear a salmon—the left brain would be devoted to this task. In order to maintain awareness of the environment and possible dangers therein, the right hemisphere of the human brain is ‘looking’ out for predators such as a sabertooth tiger seeking an easy meal in the form of a prehistoric human who is completely concentrated on catching a fish. Hence, why the right brain is often associated with insight, intuition and noetic realizations. Which is why

by Thomas Sheridan ThomasSheridanArts.com artists tend to have an ability to see changes in their environment and social conditions before the rest of the population. Their ‘background vision’ is more highly developed due to them using both hemispheres of their brain for the purpose they were intended. The left brain, on the other hand, has been shown to be highly narcissistic and with an inflated sense of its own worth and status. The left hemisphere sees no problem with itself, and this has been shown in stroke patients who lost the use of the right hemisphere of their brain. Operating in left-brain mode only, they assumed they were perfectly fine until they attempted to get out of bed only to discover they were paralyzed on one side. Between the left and right hemispheres of the human brain is the corpus callosum, which is a thin membrane of nerve fibres which separates the two halves and has now been shown that rather than being a communicative link between the two brain halves, it acts more like a buffer, with the left brain in Western people having a desire to literally switch off the neural activity in the right hemisphere. This is one meme which Betty Edwards was correct about in her book Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain—the left hemisphere is a bully. In overly logical and analytical individuals, fMRI scans have shown the left brain actually inhibits the right brain—via the corpus callosum nerve fibres—from offering its contribution to the entire cognitive process. This state of right hemisphere nullification is

It was here that decisions were reached to devalue or defend currencies, fix the price of gold, regulate offshore banking, and raise or lower short-term interest rates. In 1977, however, the BIS gave up its anonymity in exchange for more efficient headquarters. The new building has been described as “an eighteen story-high circular skyscraper that rises above the medieval city like some misplaced nuclear reactor.” It quickly became known as the “Tower of Basel.” Today the BIS has governmental immunity, pays no taxes, and has its own private police force. It is, as Mayer Rothschild envisioned, above the law.

Politicians in Germany have called for the potentially harmful containers to be removed. 28,500 containers of low level radioactive waste were dumped into the English Channel by the British and the Belgians between 1950 and 1963. Most of them were sunk in an underwater channel near the island of Alderney, known as Hurd’s Deep.

However, we expect future studies to focus on what targets aside from KCC2 are affected by BPA.”

Protecting Our Children’s Health Today’s children are sicker than children were two generations ago

F

Panna.org

rom learning disabilities and autism to childhood cancers and more, a startling number of diseases and disorders are on the rise. And the science leaves little room for doubt: pesticides and other toxic chemicals are contributing to our kids getting sick, and these chemicals can have cascading effects that last for generations. The good news is, this is a problem we can do something about. From kitchen tables to state capitals, from school districts to family farms, people are finding ways to better protect children’s health. It’s time to roll up our sleeves and get to work. See our Top 10 list below to find out how you can help protect kids from pesticides. Today.

Children are in Harm’s Way Pediatricians have understood for decades that children interact with their environment much differently than adults. Infants and children have speedier metabolic rates, which means they take in more water, food and air. Their bodies are also less able to detoxify and expel harmful chemicals. In short, a child is absorbing a higher load of pesticides at a time when his or her body is least equipped to protect itself. Here are just some of the many pathways of exposure putting our children in harm’s way: In the womb: When a fetus is exposed to certain chemicals at particular times — as the architecture of the brain is under construction,

or the reproductive organs taking shape — the normal process of development can be derailed, sometimes with irreversible effects. Home & daycare: If pesticides are used in homes, lawns or gardens where an infant or toddler is exploring the world, exposure is a near certainty. And eating foods coated with pesticides — even when residues are scant — has been linked to lower IQs and neurodevelopmental delays. Schools & playgrounds: Use of toxic chemicals to control pests in schools and on playing fields make the school environment less safe for growing bodies and developing minds. Students in rural areas face additional risk, as pesticides may drift onto school grounds and seep into water supplies from nearby fields. Way back in 1993, scientists at the National Research Council pointed to a fundamental maxim of paediatric medicine — that children are not, in fact, “little adults” — to make the urgent case that children’s small and growing bodies need special protection from pesticide exposure. Twenty years later, childhood diseases linked to pesticides are still climbing, and our children continue to be at risk. The American Academy of Pediatrics spoke out in 2012, urging policymakers to do more now to protect children from pesticides and promote safer pest control alternatives.

Solutions Within Reach Parents can make immediate changes in

how they control pests at home and what foods they feed their children, and this will help. But truly protecting our children requires getting harmful pesticides off our food and out of the places children live, learn and play — which will take major shifts in our national approach to both pests and pesticides. This kind of change doesn’t come easy. Yet we’re confident that together, we can do it. Here are the Top 10 things we recommend — right now — to get us started. 1. Choose kid-safe foods. Whenever possible, shop for fruits and veggies free of pesticides that harm children’s health. More and more families across the country are choosing pesticide-free and/or organic produce, joining local CSAs, shopping at farmers’ markets or planting their own backyard gardens! 2. Keep homes kid-safe. Use safer, alternative methods to control pests in homes, on your pets, and on your lawns and gardens. 3. Create safer child care. Daycare centres should be free of pesticides known to harm children. Ask your daycare facility about the pesticides they use, and urge them to join the Eco-Healthy Child Care program run by our partners at the Children’s Environmental Health Network. 4. Make schools pesticide-free, inside & out. Pesticides that harm children — and especially those known to harm developing minds — have no place in our schools. Learn what communities across the country are doing to create school environments free of neurotoxic pesticides. 5. Link local farms to school plates. Urge

your school district to link with a pesticide-free farm-to-school program to protect children from pesticide residues and build the family farm economy. 6. Support green & healthy farming. Our policies should better support farmers who grow healthy, pest-free crops without relying on pesticides that can harm children. Let’s make financial help and on-farm technical support for these growers a national priority. 7. Spread the word about pesticides & health. Follow and share the science on pesticides and kids health with friends, family, parent-teacher groups and neighbours. Download our 2-page Conversation Kickstarter to help get the discussion going. 8. Press policymakers to put children’s health first. Overall, current rules protect the interests of the pesticide corporations much better than they protect our children. Pesticides stay on the market long after science shows they harm children’s health, and new pesticides are approved that may increase the risk. Find out how you can help press for policies that put children’s health first. 9. Vote for kids’ health. From local to state to national elections, hold politicians accountable to vote for kids’ health, not pesticide industry profits. 10. Join the PAN family.

The study, which was published in the journal PLoS One, adds on to what has been said since the late 1980s, that breast-fed children are more protected against cancer than formula-fed children. The researchers in the study found that a substance found in breast milk known as ‘Human Alpha-lactalbumin Made LEthal to Tumour cells’ (HAMLET) can effectively kill cancer cells, providing protection against cancer for years to come. “HAMLET is produced by combining alpha-lactalbumin in the milk and oleic acid which is found in babies’ stomachs,” Assistant Professor Roger Karlsson, of the University of Gothenburg said. ”So breast feeding has been linked to actually reducing the risk of cancer in babies. HAMLET also triggers some of the cell´s apoptotic pathways – apoptosis is

programmed cell death. What’s more, the compound could also be a cancer treatment for adults within a few years. According to ScienceDaily, HAMLET has been shown to kill 40 different cancer types in previous laboratory experiments. Also important to note, HAMLET kills only cancer cells, leaving healthy cells unaffected. “A pilot study of bladder cancer patients were injected with a HAMLET solution through a catheter. The solution killed cancer cells and the size of the tumours actually reduced within five days.  It could also work if doctors were able to inject the solution into the vein which carries blood directly to the site of the cancer. They were actually looking for antibiotic powers in breast milk when they came across HAMLET and found in one of

their tests that it killed cancer cells,” he said. Interestingly, the researchers came across these findings by accident while looking into the benefits of breast milk. The findings are quite lucky considering how it came to be, but professor Karlsson is worried about how the discovery can progress. According to Karlsson, the treatment is limited because it has to be administered in the direct location of the cancer cells. If scientists can figure it out, HAMLET could be a great solution for cancer patients. Just like other natural cancer protectors like ginger, turmeric, and numerous herbs, it seems breast milk also has the power to wipe out cancer safely and effectively – unlike chemotherapy.


Is the Natural Health Industry Approaching Its Darkest Hour? by Dr. Eldon Dahl, ND | Founder of Life Choice nutraceutical products LifeChoice.net

I

n my opinion, we are on the precipice of a major paradigm shift that will reshape the natural health industry forever. Will the industry survive? Absolutely—and it will adapt and thrive, but it will be a far cry from the days of its inception. I have witnessed the changes happening over the years. I entered the health field in 1986. I owned my first health food store, then naturopathic clinic, in 1988. I remember the Life Stream store on West 4th in Vancouver. Back then, there was a clear demarcation: organic, natural, and quality were clearly evident. If you wanted health food and natural vitamins, you went to the health food store, plain and simple. The health industry of today is much different from our days of origin. The natural roots of our inception grew a healthy tree. However, today‘s health industry has grafted in branches feeding from the essence of the roots, but the fruit produced

doesn’t necessarily resemble the original. Its properties are questionable in regards to raw material purity, potency and therapeutic value. Those demarcations that used to be so easy to see are being blurred in the name of regulatory compliance. Now, under the stewardship of the Canadian Health Food Association (CHFA), all supplements are under Natural Health Product Directorate (NHPD) regulations. To set the record straight so that I am not perceived as opposed to licensing, our entire product line is licensed. Still, no matter what spin is applied, Natural Product Numbers (NPN) are in a drug subclass. Through a sleight of hand, they are referred to as “natural health products.” This placement should have been fought like hell, but here we are. Foodbased supplements don’t require warnings and adverse reactions; they only do if one considers mixing them with prescription medicine. Now, supplement warnings closely resemble those of pharmaceutical drugs. I ask you: who benefits by drug-style warnings? Health Canada is happy, and so is the pharmaceutical industry, and when they smile, I get worried. This new

“middle-ground” category raises a whole new set of industry security concerns. With the new regulations in full swing, how will creativity flourish without patent protection like what is given to the pharmaceutical industry? I can use my experience of Kava Kava as an example. Space is limited to fully explain Kava’s history and downfall from grace. After 10 years of Kava being banned from the Canadian market, I worked with a licensing company with the goal of bringing it back. After 3 ½ years of submitting clinical evidence, addressing numerous Information Request Notice (IRN) rejections, and spending tens of thousands of dollars, we brought Kava back with a license to be a calmative and a sleep aid. Unlicensed Kava is still classified by Health Canada as high risk, and if a consumer were to become sick using a non-licensed product, that one strike may be enough to permanently remove Kava—licensed or not— from ever being sold again. Speaking from the heart and from my love of the health industry, we must as an industry support the intellectual efforts of the suppliers. Through their efforts, new products enter the

marketplace, and without support or incentive, creativity will cease because there is no reward for their efforts. In the pharmaceutical world, a patent is granted to allow for the recovery of investment. However, NPN’s cannot rely on recovery being granted, but instead must rely on the industry to recognize their contribution and support their efforts until another supplier is granted a similar license. Another troubling fact is that Canada has the Freedom of Information Act. To obtain an NPN, a supplier spends years compiling research and invests tens of thousands of dollars, plus hundreds of hours. However, a competitor can apply and request that information to be released with little or no effort. Thus far we have had this happen many times. I view this as theft, just like a copyright infringement. Others may see it as free enterprise and an easy opportunity. Maybe I am old school, but it just doesn’t feel right. With these dangers will our natural industry remain fruitful in years to come? I guess that depends on our gardening skills and how we prune the tree.

Big Pharma’s Legacy of Corruption

Natural substances turned into pharmaceuticals sold for massive profit by Jonathan Benson NaturalNews.com

I

magine a world where all the vitamins, minerals, herbs, extracts, compounds, powders, and probiotics that are so freely available at any health food store and at many grocery stores were suddenly made illegal so they could be turned into pharmaceutical drugs. Such a world might seem like some kind of nightmare scenario from the future, but it is exactly the type of world that Big Pharma is slowly trying to create today as it quietly snatches up and patents all sorts of natural substances that have been banned by federal authorities under inane pretences. Take the case of gamma-hydroxybutyric acid (GHB), which was banned in the U.S. by an act of Congress back in 2000 because the compound had been used by some criminals to commit date rape. Prior to its prohibition, GHB, which is an all-natural substance found in the human nervous system, had been safely used as a sedative, particularly by women during

childbirth. But like marijuana, GHB was eventually recategorized by federal authorities as a Schedule I depressant for the alleged reason that it could be abused (along with every other substance in existence, by the way). Right around the time GHB was banned, the pharmaceutical industry conveniently submitted an Investigational New Drug Application (IND) to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to have GHB, which is also known as sodium oxybate, investigated as a potential treatment for narcolepsy. In 2000, the same year in which over-the-counter GHB was outlawed, the Office of Orphan Products Development (OOPD), a division of the FDA, submitted a New Drug Application (NDA) for sodium oxybate, and was immediately granted “Priority Review” status for the substance. In 2002, sodium oxybate received official approval from the FDA as a treatment for cataplexy in patients with narcolepsy, and the substance was later acquired by Jazz Pharmaceuticals and rebranded as Xyrem when it purchased Orphan Medical in 2005. As you may recall, Jazz Pharmaceuticals

was recently convicted in federal court for marketing Xyrem for off-label uses. But the interesting thing to note here is that Xyrem is nothing more than repackaged GHB, an all-natural substance that used to be available from multiple manufacturers without a prescription. Today, however, it is sold by only one online pharmacy for the hefty price of $1,750 per prescription, which just so happens to be covered by insurance, according to Dr. Jonathan V. Wright, M.D. -- all-natural GHB, of course, was never covered by insurance prior to being patented. Big Pharma has also patented ‘illegal’ vitamin B6 and marijuana. This ridiculous patenting of nature does not stop with Xyrem, either, as drug companies and the federal government have an extensive history of working hand-in-hand to ban, and subsequently patent, a wide variety of other natural substances as well. Pyridoxamine, a naturally-occurring form of vitamin B6, for instance, was declared by the FDA back in 2009 to be a “drug,” which means supplement manufacturers can no longer use the vitamin in

their formulas. The corporation known as the “United States of America” also possesses a patent, which was obtained back in 2003, for the cannabinoids found in the all-natural marijuana plant. As reported earlier this year, U.S. Patent 6630507, entitled “Cannabinoids as antioxidants and neuroprotectants,” grants exclusive intellectual property rights for cannabis to the federal government and its drug industry allies, which are working overtime to develop patented, marijuana-based drugs for the treatment of all sorts of diseases. “Cannabinoids have been found to have antioxidant properties, unrelated to NMDA receptor antagonism,” explains the patent in unabashed hypocrisy. “This new found property makes cannabinoids useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of a wide variety of oxidation associated diseases, such as ischemic, age-related, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases,” it adds, proving that federal marijuana prohibition serves private rather than public interests.

What Antibiotics Really Do by Raluca Schachter WakingTimes.com

A

ntibiotics: One of the most prescribed drugs in the modern world! The evidence that proves how harmful this practice can be has been available for a while now. Taking routine courses of antibiotics and moreover pouring them into our food has been leading to serious and dangerous side effects, which greatly affect everybody’s health and well being. There are instances when antibiotics can save lives, so they have their place. But switching from specific, well determined and occasional use to a broad use and even worse, to a “preventive” measure, in humans and animals, is totally insane and looks like extermination. Below you have strong evidence which confirms my statements: Antibiotics are now used as prescription drugs. People become so uncomfortable these days whenever they have a sniffle or infection. They all want it to go away, right away, at any cost! Immediate relief in exchange for a life of damaged health. But common infection doesn’t equal antibiotics!  Our body simply doesn’t work like that. The whole length of our digestive tract is coated with a bacterial layer providing a natural barrier against invaders, undigested food, toxins and parasites. If this “coating” (mucosal barrier) gets damaged, well….you get the picture! These beneficial bacteria protecting the gut wall also work against invasive pathogenic micro-organisms by producing antibiotic-like substances, anti-fungal volatiles, anti-viral substances. They engage the immune system to respond appropriately to invaders. Our healthy indigenous flora has a good ability to neutralize toxic substances from our food and environment, inactivate histamine and chelate heavy metals and other poisons. Again, this is all possible IF the “barrier” is intact…Without a well functioning gut flora, the gut wall not only becomes unprotected, but also malnourished. The variety of functions and the essential role of an intact mucosal barrier, a healthy gut flora, make this the root of our health. We simply can not thrive without a healthy digestive system. What is the clinical reality these days? A vast majority of people have a damaged gut flora and a major culprit to this is: ANTIBIOTICS! Dr. Natasha Campbell McBride offers a well researched summary of the most common disastrous health effects which directly involve antibiotics: 1. They destroy beneficial bacteria in the human body, not only in the gut but in other organs and tissues 2. They change bacteria, viruses and fungi from benign to pathogenic, giving them an ability to invade tissues and cause disease 3. They make bacteria resistant to antibiotics, so the industry has to work on more and more powerful new antibiotics to attack these new changed bacteria. A good example is tuberculosis, where wide use of antibiotics has created new varieties of the Mycobacterium Tuberculosis resistant to all existing antibiotics 4. They have  a direct damaging effect on the immune system, making us more vulnerable to infections, which leads to a vicious cycle of more antibiotics and more infections Since babies are born with a sterile gut flora, the mother essentially “downloads” her gut health / flora into the baby through breastfeeding. No wonder why digestive problems are usually shown to get worse with each generation, considering the mother’s poor gut health and bottle feeding. Penicillins and other antibiotics with “-cillin” at the end of their name have a damaging effect on two major groups of our resident bacteria:

Page 12

Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria. This group of antibiotics allow bacteria normally found only in the bowel to travel to the intestines, which predisposes the person to development of IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) and other digestive disorders. Tetracyclines and other “-cyclines” have a particular toxic effect on the gut wall by altering protein structure in the mucous membranes, making it vulnerable to invasion by pathogenic microbes and alerting the immune system to attack the changed proteins, starting an auto-immune reaction in the body against its own gut. They also stimulate the growth of pathogenic Candida, Staphylococci and Clostridia. Aminoglycosides (Gentamycin, Kanamycin, Erythromicin) have a devastating

effect on beneficial bacteria such as physiological E.coli and Enterococci. A prolonged course of treatment with these type of antibiotics can completely eliminate such beneficial bacteria from the digestive system, leaving it open to invasion by pathogenic species of E.coli and other microbes.

Antibiotics In Food The problem of antibiotics overuse actually grew to such proportions because it comes not only from prescription drugs, but from conventional food everywhere as well! This way, we are exposed indirectly to antibiotics since we are born and their negative effects are real. Farm animals and poultry are routinely given antibiotics, so all the products made out

of these (meat, milk, eggs) will also provide us with a constant supply of antibiotics AND antibiotic resistant bacteria, developed by the animals in their bodies, together with the toxins these bacteria produce. Many large producers of meat and poultry feed antibiotics to their healthy food animals simply to offset the effects of overcrowding and poor sanitation, as well as to promote faster growth. Every year, nearly 30 million pounds of antibiotics are sold for use in food animals. In fact, up to 70 percent of all antibiotics sold in the United States go to healthy food animals. Farmed fish and shellfish have antibiotics added, as well as a lot of fruits, vegetables and grains, legumes and nuts, which are sprayed with antibiotics to control disease. 

Anti-bacterial Cleaners

“Germs do not cause disease! Nature never surrounded her children with enemies. It is the individual himself who makes disease possible in his own body because of poor living habits… Do mosquitoes make the water stagnant; or does stagnant water attract the mosquitoes? We should all be taught that germs are friends and scavengers attracted by disease, rather than enemies causing disease… As their internal environment is, so will be the attraction for any specific micro-organism… The germ theory and vaccinations are kept going by commercialism.” -Dr. Robert R. Gross Modern times brought along the common belief that everything has to be disinfected and sterilized. But it’s been proven by numerous studies that constant use of conventional sanitizers and antibacterial soaps is also killing the beneficial bacteria existent on our hands, that is meant to actually protect ourselves from disease. In other words, resistant bacteria – “superbugs” – will develop, and a former common cold will morph into a much more virulent and harder to treat infection. Facts Of Antibiotic Overuse And Solutions To An Imminent Global Danger Dr. Thomas Frieden, director of the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention, recently announced the new CDC statistics on the advance of the highly drug-resistant bacteria known as CRE (carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae). The reports are frightening: • • •

Healthcare institutions in 42 states have now identified at least one case of CRE. The occurrence of this resistance in the overall family of bacteria has risen at least four-fold over 10 years. In the CDC’s surveillance networks, 4.6 percent of hospitals and 17.8 percent of long-term care facilities diagnosed this bug in the first half of 2012.

The U.K.’s Chief Medical Officer, Professor Dame Sally Davies released a report in which she calls resistance a “catastrophic threat” which poses a national security risk as serious as terrorism. She warns that unless resistance is curbed, “We will find ourselves in a health system not dissimilar to the early 19th century” in which organ transplants, cancer chemotherapy, joint replacements and even minor surgeries become life-threatening. In March 2012, researchers published a report drawing a link between bacteria on chicken and antibiotic-resistant urinary tract infections (UTIs). They compared E. coli samples from animals in processing plants to the strain of E. coli that causes urinary tract infections and found chicken to be the source of the bacteria. Last summer, the story gained major traction with the release of a related study by some of the same researchers who found that retail chickens

Vaccines Don’t Protect T

here are two primary guilt trips used on parents who refuse vaccinations for their children. The first is absurd enough to be laughable – the peer pressure tactic of not letting children who weren’t vaccinated around parents’ vaccinated children. But if your kids were vaccinated, they’re supposed to be protected, right? Actually, many children contract the disease vaccinated against. After looking at some hard facts, maybe they just aren’t protected. The vaccine industry insists that it’s goal is to create herd immunity by vaccinating at least 90% of a given population. Seeing as vaccines are also a business, that’s a money maker for sure. Also referred to as herd immunity, this 90% vaccination rate depicts a scenario where nobody gets the disease that was vaccinated against, even the ten percent who weren’t vaccinated. And there’s the second guilt trip, impeding herd immunity by not having children receive a vaccination. A Few of Those Recent Herd Immunity Hard Facts A 2012 study led by Dr. David Witt, an infectious disease specialist at the San Rafael, California Kaiser Permanente Medical Center, concluded that whooping cough, pertussis, occurs more among vaccinated children than children not vaccinated for pertussis with the DtaP vaccine that replaced the DTP vaccine. As a matter of fact, pertussis has been on the rise since pertussis vaccinations have increased. In 2010, a mumps outbreak occurred among

Exposing the Vaccination for Immunity Fraud

1000 children in upper New Jersey and lower New York. Almost 80% of them had been vaccinated with MMR (measles, mumps & rubella) vaccine. Throughout the 1980s, official agencies reported several outbreaks of measles occurring among children who had been vaccinated in various locations including an Illinois junior high and high school, a Massachusetts high school, a region in France, and a rural area near Helsinki, Finland. Both USA schools had well over 90% of children vaccinated against measles – that’s the herd immunity mark for a given population. The bogus herd immunity claim serves to create more revenue while blaming parents who refuse vaccinations for endangering humanity. Meanwhile, despite the fact that no more than 5% of vaccine adverse events get reported to the “voluntary” FDA’s vaccine adverse event reporting system (VAERS), there are many serious adverse events reported, with many seeping through the cracks to internet sites concerned about vaccines. The DTP (diptheria, tetanus, pertussis) vaccine has had a very high infant mortality rate, which is why it was replaced with the DtaP vaccine for pertussis. Though not as often, brain inflammation still occurs from the DtaP vaccine, which is not so effective for preventing pertussis after all.

You might be thinking , wasn’t herd immunity created with vaccinations against polio and smallpox as well? Several outspoken doctors, including Dr. Joseph Mercola and Dr. Russell Blaylock have illustrated with graphs that those diseases were on the way out when their vaccines were introduced. And the poliolike paralysis events that continues to occur, especially among those vaccinated against polio, are simply given different names now. Unfortunately, this reality goes unreported by the mainstream media . The media is also ignoring the fact that many, many Pakistani, Indian, and African children are becoming paralyzed now from a campaign, supported largely by Bill Gates, to heavily dispense oral polio vaccines to third world countries.

Brief Historical Summary of the Vaccination Fraud

Beginning to Now The concept of vaccinating with pathogenic material to immunize began in 1796, when British apothecary (pharmacist) Edward Jenner inserted cowpox pus under the skin of an eight year old boy. Jenner based his experiment on an unsubstantiated rumour that anyone who had experienced cowpox would be immune to smallpox. Over the next couple of years, Jenner vaccinated others with cowpox to immunize them against smallpox. Without any actual proof of efficacy and safety, Jenner impressed King George III enough that he was awarded the equivalent of today’s half-million dollars. Jenner was the first medical professional to administer diseased matter as medication to a

healthy person and receive a substantial financial award. He was also the first to constantly denounce vaccination detractors successfully to protect both his large public purse and ego. Today, vaccine developers create patents that enable them to receive royalties after they’ve been funded for their research. But many health professionals throughout the 19th Century knew that there had been several cases of smallpox among those with cowpox histories. So even Jenner’s premise was flawed. England’s post vaccination incidents of smallpox rose steadily from five percent in the beginning to 95% by 1895. There was even a serious epidemic around 1872, one year after smallpox vaccinations were decreed mandatory in the UK. The mortality rate among smallpox victims also shot up five fold around that time. Despite intelligent arguments with obvious facts and figures disproving efficacy and proving harm from toxic materials and viruses contained in vaccines, the inoculation for immunization mythology has been maintained since then. Protecting the public from the truth and the vaccine industry against financial loss by attacking reasonable dissenters viciously has resulted in a vaccine industry revenue of $17 billion annually. And MDs often receive bonuses for administering them. Do your own (deep) research and don’t get duped by vaccine-related peer pressures for you or your children – there are plenty of vaccine dangers to uncover.

“Looking for consciousness in the brain is like looking inside a radio for the announcer.” - Nassim Haramein Continued from previous Page had very high levels of antibiotic-resistant E. coli; about 85 percent of UTI infections came from this E. Coli strain. Another published study from Germany concluded that methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) is rarely found in pigs that are raised without antibiotics. Similarly, the farmers who live and work with these pigs were less likely to have the strain of MRSA commonly associated with livestock than farmers who worked with pigs who were regularly administered antibiotics. As one of the most notorious multi-drug-resistant superbugs, MRSA is responsible for an estimated 19,000 deaths and 360,000 hospitalizations each year in the United States alone. In September 2012, researchers at Stanford University concluded that consumers eating meat and poultry raised without antibiotics are 33 percent less likely to contract antibiotic-resistant infections than those who eat products raised conventionally. Considering all this, how can YOU actively participate in the change of these serious events? STOP taking antibiotics with the first infection, rely on NATURAL, effective, safe and powerful antibiotics with NO side effects. My favourites are raw propolis, grapefruit seed extract, oregano oil, echinacea, Manuka honey. When you really need to take a course of antibiotics, always follow with a course of probiotics, to counteract the negative effects and maintain a healthy gut flora. BUY and eat only  ORGANIC meat, eggs and dairy or at least which hasn’t had antibiotics

added (you can find this on many product labels now). STAY clean using natural, green cleaners for your body and house, and avoid anti-bacterial soaps, as well as harsh, toxic chemicals. The Cleanwell sanitizers for example are absolutely fantastic and extremely effective, they come in many sizes, smell good and last a long time. LIVE a healthy life, eat whole food and take responsibility of your own precious health, so you don’t end up in hospitals and long-term care facilities, which are the most exposed to never ending disease. ___________________ Raluca Schachter is a passionate Nutritionist and Metabolic Typing Advisor®, with a background in both nutrition and communication/PR.

hat’s fine. Neither do most people…. who don’t have to live under them. But chemtrails are not just something you believe in, like some believe that there will be 75 nubile virgins waiting for them in Heaven if they just kill a few infidels. There’s no documentary evidence for that. But there is documentary evidence for the existence of chemtrails which is overwhelming and inescapably conclusive, and so here’s just a taster for some of it. The chemtrail programme that we see today began in earnest in the 90s. However the technology has existed for a lot longer and there are other incidences of its use before the 90s. One notable example was in Britain from the late 50s through to the 70s, when large parts of the country were sprayed with chemicals for germ warfare experiments. This information was locked away in Government archives and has only recently been released to the public as 50 years have now passed. Many people have had children with birth defects because of this government sponsored aerosol spraying campaign. You can read the Guardian newspaper report on this incident at this link: http://tinyurl. com/5khkso. The US government also deployed similar technology during the Vietnam War. They used cloud seeding technology to prolong the monsoon season to disrupt the Vietnamese supply lines. It was called Operation Popeye

Page 14

and was considered successful. More recently the Chinese government publicly used cloud busting technology during the Olympics to ensure that the skies remained clear. I cite these examples as evidence of weather manipulation technology that has been in use for many years. Although the chemtrail programme is slightly different, it is based upon the same technology that we know has been deployed historically. In the 1990s, people began to notice that the contrails normally emitted by aircraft were lingering in the sky, forming cloud cover and blocking out the sun. Some of these people could see that they were being sprayed with some substance, so in order to understand what it was, they had their rainwater and soil independently tested. The tests consistently found exceedingly high levels of aluminium, barium and strontium in areas affected by spraying. These tests have now been carried out in many countries around the world with the same results. Some of the countries in which tests have been done include the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Britain, France, Germany, Spain, France and many others. You can view some of these test results at the following link: http://tinyurl.com/dxwzom2. From these tests people have become aware that they are being sprayed – but this gives rise to more questions than it answers. How are they doing this? And who is doing it? To try and answer the how, we can look at the list of patents that are related to this sort of technology, and from doing so can conclude that this is entirely possible. You can view an

exhaustive list of easily verifiable patents here: http://tinyurl.com/cg54m7d. These patents describe various ways of carrying out spraying. From mixing it in the jet fuel, through to dedicated spray nozzles with specially designed feeder tanks. From the patent record, we can also see that this technology has been around since before World War 2. It is also evident that some very sophisticated technologies have been developed over the years. So much so, that now it is possible to adapt nearly all types of jet aircraft to this type of use. People investigating have been monitoring aircraft to try and identify those that are carrying out the spraying. By using flight radar and other computer applications that identify commercial aircraft, investigators are able to determine if the aircraft passing overhead is civilian or not. With these types of applications, you are able to see the flight number, airline operator and other flight details. This has enabled investigators to identify many airlines that are involved in the spraying. Sadly there are a lot of them. Also by using modern cameras with high powered lenses, many excellent videos and photos exist and have been used to help identify those aircraft that are spraying. Military tanker planes are often observed spraying in NATO affiliated countries. Here is a small selection of existing videos and photos showing chemtrails as they are being sprayed and the effect of doing so. This video shows a chemtrail tanker plane turning on and off its spray nozzles. Notice the change in volume of spray as it does so. http://tinyurl.com/cb37rkv The following video shows a plane dispersing chemicals at a low-altitude over London. http://tinyurl.com/bv9p4m9 This video is a compilation of compelling evidence. http://tinyurl.com/d8v3cnl From these photos and videos I think you’d have to agree that these are not regular contrails but are in actual fact chemtrails. In scientific circles the whole process is called geo-engineering. Just as a reminder, a normal contrail is caused by water vapour freezing in certain atmospheric conditions. These normally dissipate after a few seconds, but some may linger for up to a minute or two in the right temperatures. Many whistle-blowers have come forward to speak of their involvement in these programs. Kristen Meghan, a former member of the United States Air Force where she was an environmental engineer, has come forward to attest to chemtrail programmes being operated out of bases she worked at. Listen to an interview with her here: http://tinyurl.com/ c8jabqp. Here (http://tinyurl.com/d8392by) is the testimony of a flight mechanic who wants to remain anonymous. I’d like to hear feedback from other flight mechanics about the feasibility of this testimony. Allan Buckman, who worked for the US Air Force as a weather observer has also come forward to say that chemtrails are real. See here: http://tinyurl.com/c3zqoac. Former FBI chief Ted Gunderson has spoken out against chemtrail programmes. See a short video here: http://tinyurl.com/4pqu2qf. A.C. Griffith an ex-US government employee has also come forward to give an insider’s view on chemtrail programmes. See here: http://tinyurl.com/boqy9jl. This is but a small selection of insiders who have come forward to help expose chemtrail programmes. But not only have whistle-blowers come forward to give us information about these programmes. Other people have come spoken out, including Swedish politician Pernilla

Hagberg who openly admitted that chemtrail programmes exist. See here: http://tinyurl. com/8jt2o4v. The German Air Force were caught spraying over Germany which appeared on the national news in Germany. See here: http://tinyurl.com/ bpvnrj7. National Geographic recently published the following article about geo-engineering, admitting that it is already in use and arguing that it won’t work forever. (Like it is working now) See here: http://tinyurl.com/d8pa83c. The globalist think tank, the Council of Foreign Relations, has advocated for geoengineering programmes to fight global warming along with a ‘global’ administrative body to run the said programmes. See here: http://tinyurl. com/cye9524. Climate scientists have proposed using this exact method of dumping millions of tonnes in the atmosphere to “fight global warming.” See climate scientist David Keith advocate its use on the 20th Feb 2010 at the American Association for the Advancement of Science meeting in San Diego at this link: http://tinyurl.com/d42mngv. Despite claiming that it is untested and that its impact upon human health is unknown, David Keith still is in favour of these programmes. Although in reality these programmes have already been ongoing for over 10 years before this conference took place. I haven’t explained to you why they are doing this and who is doing it, my aim was solely to convince you that this is a real programme for which there are plenty of facts and hard evidence to support its existence. It is my hope that I have inspired you enough to continue your own research into this assault upon the Earth and humanity. The only way to stop this, at present, is to tell other people and build awareness. I have included a number of links for you to begin to look at, at the bottom of this article. As you will no doubt agree, spraying aluminium into the atmosphere on an industrial scale is bad and must be stopped. Let’s stand together and stop this mass poisoning of our planet. You can help stop this by educating yourself and telling other people. Please start by sharing this article with your social circles!

Could Cause “Explosive Increase in Neurodegenerative Diseases” by Russell L. Blaylock, M.D. ChemTrailsPlanet.net

T

he internet is littered with stories of “chemtrails” and geo-engineering to combat “global warming”; and, until recently, I took these stories with a grain of salt. One of the main reasons for my skepticism was that I rarely saw what they were describing in the skies. But over the past several years I have noticed a great number of these trails and I have to admit they are not like the contrails I grew up seeing in the skies. They are extensive, quite broad, are laid in a definite pattern, and slowly evolve into artificial clouds. Of particular concern is that there are now so many – dozens every day are littering the skies. My major concern is that there is evidence that they are spraying tons of nano-sized aluminum compounds. It has been demonstrated in the scientific and medical literature that nanosized particles are infinitely more reactive and

induce intense inflammation in a number of tissues. Of special concern is the effect of these nano-particles on the brain and spinal cord, as a growing list of neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s dementia, Parkinson’s disease, and Lou Gehrig’s disease (ALS) are strongly related to exposure to environmental aluminum. Nano-particles of aluminum are not only infinitely more inflammatory, they also easily penetrate the brain by a number of routes, including the blood and olfactory nerves (the smell nerves in the nose). Studies have shown that these particles pass along the olfactory neural tracts, which connect directly to the area of the brain that is not only most affected by Alzheimer’s disease, but also the earliest affected in the course of the disease. It also has the highest level of brain aluminum in Alzheimer’s cases. The intranasal route of exposure makes spraying of massive amounts of nano-aluminum into the skies especially hazardous, as it will be

inhaled by people of all ages, including babies and small children for many hours. We know that older people have the greatest reaction to this airborne aluminum. Because of the nanosizing of the aluminum particles being used, home-filtering systems will not remove the aluminum, thus prolonging exposure, even indoors. In addition to inhaling nano-aluminum, such spraying will saturate the ground, water, and vegetation with high levels of aluminum. Normally, aluminum is poorly absorbed from the GI tract; but nano-aluminum is absorbed in much higher amounts. This absorbed aluminum has been shown to be distributed to a number of organs and tissues including the brain and spinal cord. Inhaling this environmentally suspended nano-aluminum will also produce tremendous inflammatory reaction within the lungs, which will pose a significant hazard to children and adults with asthma and pulmonary diseases. I pray that the pilots who are spraying

this dangerous substance fully understand that they are destroying the lives and health of their families as well. This is also true of our political officials. Once the soil, plants, and water sources are heavily contaminated there will be no way to reverse the damage that has been done. Steps need to be taken now to prevent an impending health disaster of enormous proportions if this project is not stopped immediately. Otherwise we will see an explosive increase in neurodegenerative diseases occurring in adults and the elderly in unprecedented rates as well as neurodevelopmental disorders in our children. We are already seeing a dramatic increase in these neurological disorders and it is occurring in younger people more than ever before. ___________________ Dr. Blaylock, an NHF member, is a Worldrenowned neurosurgeon who retired from Neurosurgery to devote his full attention to nutritional studies and research. www.blaylockwellnesscenter.com *some restrictions may apply, see store for details

Chemtrail Culture Jamming BC Elections F “Will you call a halt to chemtrails and geoengineering?”

Jane Sterk (BC Green Party) “This is not a issue that the BC Green Party is going to take on” Bob Simpson (Independent) “We deal with issues of chemtrails in our constituency office all the time, quite frankly I don’t believe that the evidence is there to substantiate what people say is going on” Rob Fleming (NDP Environment Critic) “My answer is similar to Bob Simpson’s and I do get these in my constituency but I don’t find this information compelling at all” Gabby Kalaw (BC Liberals) “I don’t have any information on that either” Duane Nickull (BC Conservatives) “I’m going to join the ranks with the other candidates up here on this as well. I come from a scientific background, I looked into it, if you have something that is concrete proof, but I haven’t seen anything myself. I may have missed it, I admit that. I worked at the United Nations, that would be in fact a international issue, that’s not a provincial issue and its not for anyone who’s running for provincial office to address. It’s not even for the national government to address. It would be for the national government to bring to the United Nations.”

irst of all, thank you to the handful of people from our chemtrail group who showed up. The house was full, myself and Tony got balcony seats. Last night, after sitting through mind bending propaganda about global warming from a panel of five local political candidates and three invited guests, I have one piece of advice for you all... Work harder! From the reaction of the audience, I may be the only one who hates being taxed. All five candidates proposed implementing annual increases to Carbon Tax. Currently, if you pay for gas heating, you are being charged 15% for Carbon Tax. Not to mention that anytime you purchase anything from retails shops or pay for services from a local business, you are paying a bit of their Carbon Tax too. Not one peep out of the crowd, just lots of clapping and cheering for more taxation. If the following piece of information does not propel you into action, I don’t know what will. Last night, I learnt through one of the candidates that big industry is and has been exempt from the Carbon Tax. How about that? For years we’ve been paying Carbon Tax because of manmade global warming, but Big Biz has

been exempt from this tax. Apparently everyone, the candidates, the host, and the audience were avowed environmentalists. However through out the entire proceedings, no one ever mentioned the word “pollution”. Not even once. Carbon is the new nasty... and not just any old carbon. Your carbon is the problem and the solution is more taxation and regulation of your life. If you want sanity in this world... Be the sanity in this world! The event was tightly controlled and only two people from the audience got to ask questions. I was not present for this part, but I wish was. The host admitted he had to push the organizers to allow questions from the audience. They did allow one guy. All the while, Inge, one of our members, who was the first to put up her hand, was ignored. Rushanna, another member sitting somewhere else, stood up and shouted to the host that some lady in the audience is waving her arm frantically, obviously she has a question, and ought to allowed to speak. The host caved in and gave Inge the microphone. Inge talked about chemtrails, the effects and so on, and then she asked the panel members if they knew about chemtrails.

by Dave Harnden and Afsaneh A few panel members admitted they knew a little about chemtrails but didn’t feel chemtrails were a problem. The other panelists claimed they had never seen chemtrails. Remember, all the panelists, according to their own bios, were avowed environmentalists. The host pushed on to another subject. Rukshanna got so mad, she ran towards the stage and brought a little bit of sanity to the proceedings. She claimed, should anyone present want to see chemtrails, all they have to do is look up! Of course, she said many other things...if you want to know more...you’ll have to ask her at brunch (See end of article for more information). Afterwards, Rukshanna asked the Green Party candidate, face to face, about chemtrails. The candidate responded, “we do not talk about that,” which she repeated several times over. And there you have it. Before the event started, there was a huge line of people waiting outside. Tony and myself, with fliers and photo albums worked the line, until everyone had gone inside. Cheers and remember...Work harder! __________________ Sunday Brunch is a social for people looking for others to talk to about 9/11 and other taboo topics with no formal agenda.

iving in the third dimension can be a blissful experience when you have power, health, wealth, comforts and

freedom. That’s what the ruling ‘Elite’ have manifested for themselves while the rest of the world struggles with poverty, disease, drug dependency, debt and servitude. The ultimate goal of the Illuminati is not only one world government. It is complete mastery over the 3rd dimension of time and space. Notice how successful they have been at manifesting a Utopian 3rd dimension for themselves – money, yachts, private jets, castles, resorts, racehorses, corporations, gold, gems, servants and everything they desire. You are part of their manifestation. You and the rest of the world are literally at their feet. How did they do it? With their knowledge of the tools of Creation and Universal Laws.

The Universal Law of Attraction What do you think about? The answer is revealed by the life that you lead. If you think your life is miserable or great, you are right. Life is whatever you think it is. The same is true for the state of the world. It is what humanity collectively thinks it is. Energy and all forms of matter attract like-vibrational energy. Our thoughts are energy magnets. They attract whatever we point them at. “Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.” - Albert Einstein/Bashar (debatable) “Alpha waves in the human brain are between 6 and 8 hertz. The wave frequency of the human cavity resonates between 6 and 8 hertz. All biological systems operate in the same frequency range. The human brain’s alpha waves function

in this range and the electrical resonance of the earth is between 6 and 8 hertz. Thus, our entire biological system – the brain and the earth itself – work on the same frequencies. If we can control that resonate system electronically, we can directly control the entire mental system of humankind.” -Nikola Tesla Your thoughts are living things. When you step into a room full of people, you can sense the living atmosphere created by the collective thought waves of the people in the room. You may sense a calm or a tense atmosphere. The collective thought waves of the 7 billion people on Planet Earth also create an atmosphere and it affects everyone either consciously or unconsciously. Like the Borg in Star Trek, you can tune into this “collective consciousness” and broadcast ideas to others who will receive and act on them. You are a drop in the ocean of thought and the ocean of thought is in every drop.

The Universal Law of Attraction is working in your life right now. You are attracting the personal situations that you are experiencing. You are also attracting the global situations through your individual contribution to the collective mass consciousness. Think about what you are contributing. Once you are aware of this Universal Law and how it works, you can start to use it deliberately to attract what you want instead of what you don’t want. Any thought you have, when combined with emotion, vibrates out from you to the universe. Like a boomerang, it returns whatever you focus on. All you have to do is allow yourself to expect what you want. Sounds easy, right? The hard part is becoming ‘doubt-free’. You must expect what you want without doubt, act like you already have it and be grateful for it. Like drops in the ocean, each and every person is individually responsible for their contribution to mass consciousness. By expecting a New World Order, an

Unless you understand how reality is manifested, your destiny and the destiny of the planet will be in the hands of the ruling Elite who do understand it. Changing Your Beliefs

You are made up of billions and billions of “programmed” beliefs about what is real and what’s not real, what you should or shouldn’t be or wear or say or do. You have downloaded beliefs about how attractive you are, about your body, your intelligence, about God, sin, life after death, morality and class. You have been inundated with disaster scenarios about the future of humanity - a global depression, an apocalypse, Armageddon, end times, depopulation, nuclear war, an Antichrist ruler and other dis-empowering, fear mongering, toxic propaganda. Very few people understand the programming of fear, and why it distorts our perceptions. While fear is a program used for our survival, fear also creates irrational beliefs that cause larger systems of fear like politics, religion and the media. ‘A Virus Called Fear’ is a short film about the conditioning of fear, and what irrational fears can lead to: http://tinyurl.com/c3boodo If you stop and look closely at your thoughts and beliefs, you will discover that instead of serving you, they serve the agenda of the ruling Elite. Although you may feel you are immune to religious and political propaganda, your immunity is overpowered by the repetition of messages that burrow into your subconscious just below your conscious radar. The ruling ‘Elite’ have taught you slave consciousness. You tick-tock through life with alarm clocks, car clocks, work clocks, the TV clock, the cell phone clock, wrist watches, wall clocks and calendars. It’s “breakfast time”, “lunch hour”, “break time”, “traffic hour”, “news hour”, “happy hour”, “week end”, “dinner time”, “bed time”, “tax time”. You sit in traffic, stand in line-ups, watch mind numbing TV trivia interrupted by endless commercials. You settle for a 14 day holiday out of the 365 days it takes for the Earth to circle the Sun. You trade your labor for digits at the bank. You celebrate birthdays, New Years, Valentine’s day, St. Patrick’s Day and countless other repetitive cycles of commercialized nonsense. From cradle to grave, you obediently tick-tock through life like an automaton, serving the ruling Elite. Despite the servitude, they have somehow convinced you that you are free.

Antichrist, an Apocalypse and end times, your contribution to the collective consciousness is “dark”. Expect miracles. Expect a Golden Age. When you assume 100% responsibility for everything you’re experiencing in your reality right now — absolutely everything — only then will you possess the power to alter your reality. “Our world is a reflection of our subconscious beliefs. Our subconscious mind can process 40 million neural impulses a second while our conscious mind can only process 40 neural impulses per second. We all know that if we focus on something long enough we can do it without thinking, it becomes part of our subconscious routine. Let’s make compassion and understanding a part of our subconscious routine by consciously focusing on these higher aspects of the self in our everyday lives.” -Vito Santana

“The real hopeless victims of mental illness are to be found among those who appear to be most normal. Many of them are normal because they are so well adjusted to our mode of existence, because their human voice has been silenced so early in their lives, that they do not even struggle or suffer or develop symptoms as the neurotic does. They are normal not in what may be called the absolute sense of the word; they are normal only in relation to a profoundly abnormal society. Their perfect adjustment to that abnormal society is a measure of their mental sickness. These millions of abnormally normal people, living without fuss in a society to which, if they were fully human beings, they ought not to be adjusted.” -Aldous Huxley, Brave New World Revisited “None are so hopelessly enslaved as those who falsely believe they are free.” -Johann Wolfgang von Goethe “Neural electrical activity has been correlated with different states of awareness. Children do not display the neural electrical activity associated with conscious awareness until after six years of age. They spend the first six years of their lives in the state referred to as the hypnogogic trance. This is the same state that hypnotists induce to implant

suggestions directly into the subconscious mind. All patterns of behaviour that emerge from experiences where conscious processing is absent or suspended remain below the level of conscious awareness, and tends to be repeated. As an adult any experience that rises above a certain stress threshold induces the hypnogogic state, resulting in a suspension of conscious processing. In this state whatever we experience will be stored in our subconscious memory but not consciously processed. This is why we are bombarded daily with negative messages that frighten us. It suspends our conscious processing and keeps our subconscious mind open to suggestive programming. In this way we are moulded to fit the agenda of the ‘elite’. We are regressed daily into a state of hypnogogic compliance and downloaded with predictive programming by the media and entertainment industry.” -Vito Santana The video below is an amazing interview was done back in 1985 with a former KGB agent who was trained in subversion techniques. He explains the 4 basic steps to socially engineering entire generations into thinking and behaving the way those in power want them to. It’s shocking because our world has been transformed in the exact same way, and followed the exact same steps. How to brainwash a Nation: http://tinyurl. com/c38r2sv “Sometimes people hold a core belief that is very strong. When they are presented with evidence that works against that belief, the new evidence cannot be accepted. It would create a feeling that is extremely uncomfortable, called cognitive dissonance. And because it is so important to protect the core belief, they will rationalize, ignore and even deny anything that doesn’t fit in with the core belief.” -Frantz Fanon We need to make the public aware of these techniques so people can become street wise to them. Spread the knowledge through your community. The universe is spoken into existence. We need to be a reflection-- speak the truth back into the field of which we are a part of. Actually speaking the knowledge that we have taken back into the world around us. You have the power to heal yourself and the Earth. It starts with the belief that you can do it and then actually ‘doing it’! Learn how to manifest the reality you want instead of the reality that the ‘Ruling Elite’ are manifesting for you. “When we give our minds and our responsibility away, we give our lives away. If enough of us do it, we give the world away and that is precisely what we have been doing throughout known human history. This is why the few have always controlled the masses. The only difference today is that the few are now manipulating the entire planet because of the globalization of business, banking and communications. The foundation of that control has always been the same: keep the people in ignorance, fear and at war with themselves. Divide, rule and conquer while keeping the most important knowledge to yourself.” - The Biggest Secret: The Book That Will Change the World It’s when we look at the source of these inspirational quotes in historical biographies of these people that the evidence of the Law of Attraction becomes much stronger.

The Corporate Food Manipulation Model Permitting corporations to genetically modify, synthetically process and artificially preserve substances for you to ingest, and then calling it “food” insults our health and well-being. The claim that starving masses must be given cheap alternatives is a fabrication to let them trod  upon our garden.

o describe Primal Eating, allow me to contradistinguish with its opposite: the corporate manipulation model. Permitting corporations to genetically modify, synthetically process and artificially preserve substances for you to ingest, and then calling it “food” insults our health and wellbeing. You will hear many arguments as to why they feel it necessary to promote this diseaseriddled behaviour. They claim that to feed an over-populated world of dwindling resources, the starving and low economic masses must be given cheap alternatives to quality food. They fabricated this argument, as the footprint of simple eating is magnitudes lighter than their heavy iron clad boots with which they trod upon our garden. Trusting a corporation to alter the makeup of your food because they promote their humanitarian intent, when they stand to profit from your addiction and disease, is like trusting an elected official to represent your values, because they purport to philanthropically believe in your interest, when they stand to profit from attaining and remaining in office

due to contributions from dubious lobbies in exchange for unknown favours. Anything someone says to you, who stand s to profit from your decreased health, should be held suspect for their bias. They may attempt to suspend your good judgment by switching to an argument of survival subsistence claiming, “You must accept a degree of lesser quality if we are to feed the world inexpensively. You can’t afford high quality food.” We cannot afford low quality! We are made of food we eat. Eating lesser quality is not the solution. Eating better is. And frankly, you cannot afford high quality only because they have made conventional access methods expensive. So, we must return to simple methods of self-reliability to outmaneuver this covert extortion. You may feel like you have no option but to eat their products, but remember your power to vote in the marketplace with your dollar. You may feel extorted to accept their selections. But you hold the power to change the industry. If you resist consuming these nonfood ingestibles, you will force corporations to change their offerings.

T

Corporations must provide the needs you demand in order to operate. But if you do not define those needs, their profit margin will define your needs for you, and your potential decreased health and increased disease becomes an acceptable loss (especially if they stand to profit from it.) I despise sounding conspiratorial, but unfortunately, I’ve been around long enough to observe this mutation in the food industry which accelerated forty years ago. Some of us can remember what simple eating was like for we ate that way, or recall our parents or grandparents doing so. But the next generations—our children and children’s children—face a world unfamiliar with this experience. They will walk alone and unaware of what they consume, unless we object.

Lose Your Lawn

H

ave you taken your hounds fox hunting lately? You haven’t? Well, maybe you’ve gone to visit a friend’s estate in a horse and carriage? You haven’t done that either, have you? Most of the popular trends of 19th century British aristocracy are not the norm in 21st century America. Except for one: the lawn. Centuries ago, most Europeans (and their descendants on our side of the pond) produced food on their land. Whether in the form of kitchen gardens, farm fields, or pastures for raising livestock, most folks relied on their land in order to eat. Only the rich could afford to flaunt their wealth by devoting large areas of land to an inedible, yet beautifully manicured, green lawn. Back then, without lawn mowers, lawn maintenance required paying a servant to “mow”

Page 18

on rds a h Ric ds.org r Jill y b Wo r e Oth the lawn with a scythe. Lawns were mega status symbols. The usefulness of the lawn as a status symbol is a thing of the past. Today, if your lawn serves a function at all, it’s as a soccer field or play area for your family. For many Americans, lawns yield no benefit at all. You mow it, you water it, you weed it, you fertilize it. Why? Your lawn, if you’ve got one, might be covered with snow right now. But the groundhog has spoken and spring will be upon us soon. America’s No. 1 crop is lawn turf. As a nation, we spend $30 billion on our 40 billion acres of lawn each year. Think about it. Is it time to ditch your lawn? Lawns were status symbols because they were wasteful. They’ve lost their status, but they’re still plenty wasteful. If all lawns were

watered at the recommended levels, then we’d use 238 gallons of water per person, per day maintaining them during the growing season. Most of us also use fertilizer, which is made using fossil fuels and often pollutes our waterways. All to grow a crop we don’t eat. If your family plays soccer on your lawn, maybe you’ve got a good reason to keep on mowing and watering. If your lawn serves no purpose, consider your other options. In arid areas where green lawns mimicking Merry Olde England are particularly ridiculous, you can try xeriscaping. That means planting drought-tolerant plants, often native to where you live, that survive and even thrive with little to no work or maintenance on your part. Done right, a yard full of natives can be beautiful. You won’t sacrifice any of your yard’s aesthetics if you go this route, and your neighbors will

yourself. Empower yourself and express your dissatisfaction. Ally yourselves together. Stand up and speak out. Point out bias. Resist coercion. Invest in high quality. Respect your right to personal dignity in your food, for you are what you eat. __________________ Scott Sonnon is a Master of Sport, World Martial Arts Champion, USA National Coach, and Federal Consultant.

Turning your lawn into something more beautiful and useful would save time and money while curbing pollution and water usage. respect your choice. After an initial investment, you’ll be able to kick back while your neighbors continue investing time and money into their lawns year after year. Even in parts of the country with plenty of rain, native plants are a good way to go. They’re already adapted to your climate, so they don’t require watering or mowing. I like to choose native plants with edible berries or beautiful flowers, or ones that attract butterflies and songbirds. If you don’t mind doing a bit more work, start growing some food in your own yard. Vegetable gardens are rewarding, but most vegetables must be planted each year. Fruit trees, on the other hand, live for many years and bear fruit year in and year out. Instead of ripping out your lawn — a monumental task, no doubt — you can compost it in place. There are many ways to do this, but the principle is always the same: Deny your lawn sunlight and keep it moist. Within a few months, the grass will die and break down, enriching the soil and readying it for whatever is next. With the economy still in a rough patch, spending money on lawn care makes no sense. This spring, turn yours into something more beautiful and useful. _______________ OtherWords columnist Jill Richardson is the author of Recipe for America: Why Our Food System Is Broken and What We Can Do to Fix It. www.OtherWords.org


Organic Farmer Proves the Fraud of GMOs and Big AG. Organic rice farmer in India yields over 22 tons of crop on only two acres by Jonathan Benson

D

espite all the claims made by industry-funded hacks that genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) and other industrial agricultural methods are necessary for the future of humanity, it is the traditional growing methods that continue to shine through as the real sustainers of life. As reported by Gaia Health, Indian rice farmers using traditional, organic growing methods are achieving yields far higher than farmers using more modern methods. In the case of Sumant Kumar, rice yields have surpassed the national average per hectare (about 2.5 acres) nearly ten-fold. According to reports, Kumar is currently yielding about 22.4 tons of rice per hectare, greatly surpassing that of other rice farms currently outputting roughly 2.3 tons per hectare. His secret? A traditional crop management protocol known as System of Root Intensification, or SRI. Farmers adhering to SRI techniques will

NaturalNews.com typically plant about half the number of seeds as farmers using more modern methods, and will space them out at intervals of about 10 inches. They also plant their seeds much younger, and keep the soil dryer, while paying much closer attention to weed growth. By hand-removing weeds, SRI farmers are able to allow more water and nutrients to feed their rice plants, which results in significantly higher yields. “Farmers use less seeds, less water and less chemicals but they get more without having to invest more,” says Dr. Surendra Chaurassa, agriculture minister to the region where Kumar’s farm is located, as quoted by The Observer. “This is revolutionary. I did not believe it to start with, but now I think it can potentially change the way everyone farms. I would want every state to promote it. If we get 30 to 40 percent increase in yields, that is more than enough to recommend it.” System of Root Intensification methods

BioTech Lies Exposed

could provide more than enough food to feed humanity According to Gaia Health, SRI methods originated in ancient Madagascar, and were passed on from generation to generation among villagers. An agronomist by the name of Henri de Laulanie observed the methods back in the 1980s, and brought them back into use, teaching other farmers how to utilize them with limited resources. And perhaps the greatest aspect of SRI is that it is not tied to the biotechnology industry or Big Ag. “SRI offers millions of disadvantaged households far better opportunities,” Norman Uphoff, Director of the International Institute for Food, Agriculture and Development at Cornell University is quoted as saying by The Observer. “Nobody is benefiting from this except the farmers; there are no patents, royalties or licensing fees.” This is good news, as Monsanto and others in the agriculture-for-obscene-profits

industry are aggressively pursuing market expansions in developing countries like India. If the truth about the benefits of SRI can be widely disseminated, poor farmers across the globe will be well-equipped to reject the lies of Big Ag and the GMO industry. “The farmers know SRI works, but help is needed to train them,” says Anil Verma, an agronomist from the small Indian nongovernmental organization (NGO) Pran, or Preservation and Proliferation of Rural Resources and Nature, which has been reintroducing SRI methods to villages all across the third-world for the past three years. “We know it works differently in different soils but the principles are solid. The biggest problem we have is that people want to do it but we do not have enough trainers.” SRI methods can also be used to grow other crops like wheat, sugar cane, and teff.

Genetically Modified Corn is Loaded with Chemical Poisons

A

by Jonathan Benson

breakthrough report on the nutritional density of genetically-modified (GM) corn crops demolishes all existing claims that GMOs are “substantially equivalent” to non-GMOs. Entitled 2012 Nutritional Analysis: Comparison of GMO Corn versus Non-GMO Corn, the paper reveals not only that GMO corn is greatly lacking in vitamins and minerals compared to non-GMO corn, but also that it is highly toxic and filled with deadly crop chemicals like glyphosate (Roundup). The owners of the blog MomsAcrossAmerica. com say the report was shared with them by De Dell Seed Company, Canada’s only non-GMO corn seed supplier, which obtained it from a Minnesota-based agricultural company called ProfitPro. Overall, the paper found that nonGMO corn is 20 times richer in nutrition, energy and protein compared to GMO corn. Concerning energy content, as measured in terms of ERGS, non-GMO corn was found in tests to give off 3,400 times more energy per gram, per second compared to GMO corn, an astounding variance. And as far as its overall percentage of organic matter is concerned, nonGMO corn was determined to have nearly twice as much of this vital component compared to GMO corn. Non-GMO corn contains substantially more potassium, magnesium, calcium, sulfur and manganese The field comparison also evaluated individual nutrient deviations, which revealed some shocking facts. Potassium, which is necessary for energy production and proper cellular function, is barely even present in GMO corn, having clocked in at 0.7 parts per million (ppm). In non-GMO corn, however, potassium levels were more than 13 times higher, testing at 9.2 ppm. The disparity was even worse for magnesium, which tested at a mere 0.2 ppm in GMO corn. In non-GMO corn, however, magnesium levels were found to be 46 times higher than in non-

NaturalNews.com GMO corn. Similar variances were observed for calcium, sulphur and manganese as well, with the contents of each being 12.4, 14, and seven times higher, respectively. On the other hand, non-GMO corn was found to be free of chlorides, formaldehyde, glyphosate, and other harmful chemicals, while in GMO corn they were identified in dangerously high levels. According to an analysis of the report by MomsAcrossAmerica. com, GMO corn contains about 19 times more glyphosate than is permitted as a maximum in drinking water by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and 130 times more glyphosate than has been found in tests to cause organ damage in animals. Similarly, GMO corn contains dangerously high levels of formaldehyde, according to the report. A previous study conducted by Dr. Don Huber on GMOs revealed that .97 ppm of formaldehyde is toxic if ingested by animals. As it turns out, GMO corn contains 200 times more formaldehyde than this maximum safety threshold. These shock findings are at great odds with the claims continually being made by agri-genocide giant Monsanto. On its corporate website, Monsanto claims that approved genetically-modified (GM) crops are “substantially equivalent” to non-GMOs, meaning they are not nutritionally different from non-GMO crops. But as this study shows, these claims are patently false, and indicate that Monsanto is engaged in a global agricultural scam based on complete lies. “Glyphosate is a strong organic phosphate chelator that immobilizes positively charged minerals such as manganese, cobalt, iron, zinc, copper, etc. that are essential for normal physiological functions in soils, plants and animals,” explains Dr. Huber about how GMO crop chemicals literally destroy the nutrient content of GMO crops.

Suicide Seeds

onsanto’s talk of ‘technology’ tries to hide its real objectives of control over seed where genetic engineering is a means to control seed: “Monsanto is an agricultural company. We apply innovation and technology to help farmers around the world produce more while conserving more.” “Producing more, Conserving more, Improving farmers lives.” These are the promises Monsanto India’s website makes, alongside pictures of smiling, prosperous farmers from the state of Maharashtra. This is a desperate attempt by Monsanto and its PR machinery to delink the epidemic of farmers’ suicides in India from the company’s growing control over cotton seed supply — 95 per cent of India’s cotton seed is now controlled by Monsanto. Control over seed is the first link in the food chain because seed is the source of life. When a corporation controls seed, it controls life, especially the life of farmers. Monsanto’s concentrated control over the seed sector in India as well as across the world is very worrying. This is what connects farmers’ suicides in India to Monsanto vs Percy Schmeiser in Canada, to Monsanto vs Bowman in the US, and to farmers in Brazil suing Monsanto for $2.2 billion for unfair collection of royalty. Through patents on seed, Monsanto has become the “Life Lord” of our planet, collecting rents for life’s renewal from farmers, the original breeders. Patents on seed are illegitimate because putting a toxic gene into a plant cell is not “creating” or “inventing” a plant. These are seeds of deception — the deception that Monsanto is the creator of seeds and life; the deception that while Monsanto sues farmers and traps them in debt, it pretends to be working for farmers’ welfare, and the deception that GMOs feed the world. GMOs are failing to control pests and weeds, and have instead led to the emergence of superpests and superweeds. The entry of Monsanto in the Indian seed sector was made possible with a 1988 Seed Policy imposed by the World Bank, requiring the Government of India to deregulate the seed sector. Five things changed with Monsanto’s entry: First, Indian companies were locked into jointventures and licensing arrangements, and concentration over the seed sector increased. Second, seed which had been the farmers’ common resource became the “intellectual property” of Monsanto, for which it started collecting royalties, thus raising the costs of seed. Third, open pollinated cotton seeds were displaced by hybrids, including GMO hybrids. A renewable resource became a non-renewable, patented commodity. Fourth, cotton which had earlier been grown as a mixture with food crops now had to be grown as a monoculture, with higher vulnerability to pests, disease, drought and crop failure. Fifth, Monsanto started to subvert India’s regulatory processes and, in fact, started to use public resources to push its non-renewable hybrids and GMOs through so-called public-private partnerships (PPP). In 1995, Monsanto introduced its Bt technology in India through a joint-venture with the Indian company Mahyco. In 1997-98, Monsanto started open field trials of its GMO Bt cotton illegally and announced that it would be selling the seeds commercially the following year. India has rules for regulating GMOs since 1989, under the Environment Protection Act. It is mandatory to get approval from the Genetic Engineering Approval Committee under the ministry of environment for GMO trials. The Research Foundation for Science, Technology and Ecology sued Monsanto in the Supreme Court of India and Monsanto could not start the commercial sales of its Bt cotton seeds until 2002. And, after the damning report of India’s parliamentary committee on Bt crops in August 2012, the panel of technical experts appointed by the Supreme Court recommended a 10-year moratorium on field

trials of all GM food and termination of all ongoing trials of transgenic crops. But it had changed Indian agriculture already. Monsanto’s seed monopolies, the destruction of alternatives, the collection of super profits in the form of royalties, and the increasing vulnerability of monocultures has created a context for debt, suicides and agrarian distress which is driving the farmers’ suicide epidemic in India. This systemic control has been intensified with Bt cotton. That is why most suicides are in the cotton belt. An internal advisory by the agricultural ministry of India in January 2012 had this to say to the cotton-growing states in India — “Cotton farmers are in a deep crisis since shifting to Bt cotton. The spate of farmer suicides in 2011-12 has been particularly severe among Bt cotton farmers.” The highest acreage of Bt cotton is in Maharashtra and this is also where the highest farmer suicides are. Suicides increased after Bt cotton was introduced — Monsanto’s royalty extraction, and the high costs of seed and chemicals have created a debt trap. According to Government of India data, nearly 75 per cent of rural debt is due to purchase inputs. As Monsanto’s profits grow, farmers’ debt grows. It is in this systemic sense that Monsanto’s seeds are seeds of suicide. The ultimate seeds of suicide is Monsanto’s patented technology to create sterile seeds. (Called “Terminator technology” by the media, sterile seed technology is a type of Gene Use Restriction Technology, GRUT, in which seed produced by a crop will not grow — crops will not produce viable offspring seeds or will produce viable seeds with specific genes switched off.) The Convention on Biological Diversity has banned its use, otherwise Monsanto would be collecting even higher profits from seed. Monsanto’s talk of “technology” tries to hide its real objectives of ownership and control over seed where genetic engineering is just a means to control seed and the food system through patents and intellectual property rights. A Monsanto representative admitted that they were “the patient’s diagnostician, and physician all in one” in writing the patents on life-forms, from micro-organisms to plants, in the TRIPS’ agreement of WTO. Stopping farmers from saving seeds and exercising their seed sovereignty was the main objective. Monsanto is now extending its patents to conventionally bred seed, as in the case of broccoli and capsicum, or the low gluten wheat it had pirated from India which we challenged as a biopiracy case in the European Patent office. That is why we have started Fibres of Freedom in the heart of Monsanto’s Bt cotton/suicide belt in Vidharba. We have created community seed banks with indigenous seeds and helped farmers go organic. No GMO seeds, no debt, no suicides.

West Coast Hit With Thyroid Problems Following Fukushima

S

by Anthony Gucciardi WakingTimes.com

till think that the Fukushima nuclear meltdown of 2011 never affected the United States public? Young children born in the United States West Coast (and you know where else. Ed.), right in the line of fire for radioactive isotopes, have been found to be 28% more likely to develop congenital hypothyroidism than infants born the year before the incident. The study followed children born in California, Alaska, Washington, Hawaii, and Oregon between 1 and 16 weeks after the horrific meltdown at Fukushima back in March 2011. Published in the Open Journal of Pediatrics by researchers affiliated with the Radiation and Public Health Project, the information further lends credence to previous documentation regarding the way in which radioactive fallout ended up on US soil. The researchers explained how radioactive fallout affected the entirety of the US in varying degrees: “Fukushima fallout appeared to affect all areas of the U.S., and was especially large in some, mostly in the western part of the nation,” they wrote. The findings are likely no surprise to those who have been following the effects of Fukushima closely, as back in 2011 numerous reports surfaced regarding the ways in which Fukushima’s radioactive waste had made its way to the US geography in a big way. Despite Japanese officials downplaying the incident and its real devastating health consequences, even so much as to ignore the fact that Fukushima radiation was detected in Tokyo far beyond the evacuation zone, US scientists were quick to reveal their own measurements to the scientific community. Even as far away as Boston, highly radioactive objects known as ‘hot particles’ were detected by 2 out of 3 monitoring stations. Scientists from  UC Berkley  detailed even more concerning reports following the disaster, finding the highest cesium content in topsoil for each California location was consistent. The recordings were posted online along with the date of finding: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

Sacramento, CA Topsoil on Aug. 16, 2011: Total Cesium @ 2.737 Bq/kg Oakland, CA Topsoil on Sept. 8, 2011: Total Cesium @ 2.55 Bq/kg Alameda, CA Topsoil on Apr. 6, 2011: Total Cesium @ 2.52 Bq/kg San Diego, CA Topsoil on June 29, 2011: Total Cesium @ 2.51 Bq/kg Sonoma, CA Topsoil on Apr. 27, 2011: Total Cesium @ 2.252 Bq/kg

But the levels were nothing compared to what Marco Kaltofen, PE, of the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) recorded from his research. In his report presentation, entitled  ‘Radiation Exposure to the Population in Japan After the Earthquake’, Kaltofen found samples on US soil that were 108 times greater than what UC Berkley researchers were reporting.

Control Less, Feel More by Elina Collective-Evolution.com

he need to control sucks out the joy that is freely available in every moment. Lately I’ve experienced something I never did before to this extent: The lure to control all, while feeling completely out of control. Control of self, control of experience, control of others, control of emotions, control of outcomes… regardless of how I knew everything my mind tried to control would slip out of my fingers as soon as I’d try to reach out. I know the “clarity”, I know the wisdom of “letting go” and “letting be”, but I haven’t experienced the full extent of where the ego mind can lead you, and therefore haven’t put myself in a situation to transcend my biggest fears and emotional blocks. What a ride. Even right now I’m still kind of shaky, a bit like how you feel right after a steep roller coaster ride. And I don’t feel I’m done yet. When big changes, sudden endings and quick turns show up in your life after a period of stagnancy, it’s easy to hold your breath in and tense up. It’s easy to want to panic in reaction to all of the old emotions coming up. But eventually we learn an important lesson: It’s okay to feel and feel all of it through and through. It’s okay if the feeling comes up several times, armed with new alluring stories. Allowing what needs to come through and be released is actually the whole point. Once you accept you’re on the ride, you can begin to enjoy it. The wounded ego will try every exit possible by searching for relief or more stuff to dwell on, until you decide to take the reins, breathe and let it all be. Until you let go of control and resistance. I let my intense emotional states scare me into thinking that I would never see the light at the end of the tunnel and therefore tried to force my way out, instead of being more compassionate and gentle with myself in this period of transition. I even caught myself believing that peace was somewhere in the future, that it couldn’t possibly be now… It’s funny how the mind forgets this SIMPLE TRUTH: Trying to control what you cannot control is like trying to change the weather instead of just feeling the rain. Letting things be makes you ENJOY THE PROCESS whatever it may look or feel like. The process is what makes you go to greater depths of self-discovery and let go of what you don’t need to carry anymore. The destination is irrelevant because it is always perfect regardless. So what’s the point of trying to control perfection? “Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness. How do you know this is the experience you need? Because this is the experience you are having at the moment.” – Eckhart Tolle Let’s remember to breathe and relax into existence ♥ We’re alive!

When People are Money by Paul Glover GlobalResearch.ca

T

wenty years ago I started printing money. Soon after, residents of Ithaca, New York, began exchanging colourful cash featuring children, waterfalls, trollies and bugs.  Since then, millions of dollars worth of Ithaca HOURS have been traded by thousands of individuals and over 500 businesses.  They’ve purchased everything that dollars do: groceries, fuel, housing, land, health care, and all the fun stuff. At first, since it was a new idea, many folks were skeptical.  But right off the bat, hundreds of folks eagerly joined the trading list.  They understood the advantages to themselves and to the community. For example, this extra cash proved powerful by strengthening local businesses, creating jobs, and enlarging sales tax revenue.  Each HOUR is valued at $10/hour, or one hour of basic labor.  Professionals may request multiple HOURS per hour of work, or trade them equitably. HOURS weren’t intended to replace dollars, but to replace lack of dollars.  Supplemental community money honours skills neglected by the formal economy, stimulating new enterprise and creating new jobs.  There’s more benefit, too. Grants of HOURS have been made to over 100 community groups, and interest-free HOUR loans up to $30,000 were offered. Yet their greatest benefit has been to introduce residents to one another, helping us become friends, lovers and political allies.  HOURS easily connect people, while dollars often control people. How do you convert paper into money?  Community currencies, like national banknotes, require constant networking and brokering, to build trust and balance circulation.  So every local currency needs at least one professional networker.  My main work as the HOUR organizer was to invite new skills and businesses into the system, then publish the bimonthly HOUR Town directory, while helping people spend the HOURS they earned. Why HOURS?  Because  HOURS are as steady as the clock, since minutes do not expand or contract.  And everyone has more hours than gold. Modern times, however, find internet-based trading of local credits popular.  “Time Dollars” are being earned and spent in hundreds of American towns. Hour systems like BitCoin, TimeRepublik and E-Flux trade globally. For me, though, paper money with local emblems shouts local pride. What’s a nation without a flag, a company without a logo, or local trading without tangible symbols? Whether community money is paper, electrons or metal, successful issuance requires relentless promotion.  Ithaca HOURS became a household word, thanks to hundreds of national news stories and thousands of local conversations.  HOUR Town published 300 local “success stories” of satisfied traders.  Within five years, nearly everyone understood HOURS and was willing to accept them.  Children assumed that all cities printed money. Within any large city there’s room for neighbourhood cash.  Sector currencies like ArtCash could boost the creative economy; MediCash could grow our clinics; and NegaWatts fund weatherization. America’s (and the world’s. Ed) green economy also deserves its own money, dedicated to ecology and social justice.  Such credits can stimulate the less instantly profitable green markets that biggest investors have too long avoided: energy-efficiency and retrofit, urban agriculture, co-op health care, earthship housing and transit. Putting special money to work, and ourselves as well, invites us to repair civilization.  When we take control of money, We the People become the treasury, and the treasure. ___________________ Glover is founder of a dozen organizations and author of six books, including Hometown Money: How to Enrich Your Community with Local Currency.  www.paulglover.org

Obsessive Debunking Continued from page 7

where the debunker and the hardcore skeptics are trapped and can never leave—in their intolerant and highly narcissistic left hemisphere—using the two percent of neural wiring into their right hemisphere in order to shut it off. Ordering the right hemisphere to cease activity while the left side of the brain saves the world from ‘morons’ who dare question official government press releases or the mandates from any authority figure or bureaucratic institution. Along with this, their intuition and ‘background awareness’ are likewise diminished. Can you see where this is going? For all their obsession with brain functionality and brain size, as well as their entrenched (and completely unproven) notion that all human consciousness resides in the brain, the debunkers and hardcore skeptics are only using one half of their brain.  

Evolution and the Corpus Callosum

Despite what one would assume, the further we get from our hunter-gatherer ancestors, the thickness of the corpus callosum has actually increased. Pushing both halves of the human brain further apart rather than removing it. This presents Darwinists with a problem; as we move further away from the dangers of the natural world, there should be an on-going lateralization and symmetry of the two brain hemispheres. Another problem is presented here in that it has now been shown that people of higher intelligence and IQ are much easier to hypnotize and mind control than more creative individuals, and even people with lower IQs are less likely to be mesmerized than formally educated persons with advanced degrees. This would go a long way to explaining why the most absurd flying saucer cults are populated with PhDs and other highly qualified people waiting for the ‘space brothers’ to arrive. The over-dependence upon and submission to the left hemisphere of the brain leads to just as much delusion and risk of being deceived as the flighty and poetic overstimulated right hemisphere.  

A Cognitive Awareness Strangled by Statistical Information and Experimental Designs

All the great scientific discoveries were ‘eureka’ moments. They were not developed in the labs by white coats working for corporations and foundations. Scientific discovery was not gained by piling sequential ‘certainties’ upon previous ‘certainties’. They were intuitive insights which were validated through the Scientific Method of measurement and constant re-testing. The Western system of education has created a kind of trial separation between the left and right hemispheres of the human brain. Therefore, similar to a stroke patient who is not aware that one side of his or her body is paralyzed until they attempt to get out of bed, the deeply entranced hyperactive left brain debunker and hardcore skeptic is simply unable to grasp how the rest of us see the world and experience life. Unable to see the wood from the trees,

they do not comprehend intuition and noetic insights. They are cognitively blinded to these experiences and the rest of us trying to explain to them how some official announcement or world event—does not “feel right”—is a human experience that they are completely unaware of. This is why you cannot explain an alternative viewpoint of view to them. Humans need both sides of their brain working in tandem in order for their consciousness to synthesize a more complete and richer understanding of the world as well as human and social dynamics.

The Journey into Orthodoxy Madness

This can be seen as a kind of selfinduced schizophrenia, resulting from over-hyperactivity in the left hemisphere of the brain. There is too much information being processed, and the intense devotion to the analytical leads to a kind of overload in the ‘here and now’ dominant cognitive rationalization based on statistical data, while neglecting the right hemisphere of the brain and the ‘background awareness’.  Much of this has to do with how our minds process ideas and concepts through visual thought forms, and how this is then expressed in language and the written word. By neglecting the right hemisphere, extreme stress is then placed on the left hemisphere, and the results can be catastrophic. Philo Farnsworth, the Utah farm boy who invented the modern television system and then went on to develop over 150 patents in television and broadcast technology, ended up drinking himself to death due to—according to his family—being unable

to shut his mind down and live a normal life. His initial discovery was a result of a ‘eureka’ moment, when as a teen, he observed how the plough lines behind his tractor represented the ideal method for transmitting images by radio waves; however, his obsession with formulae and endless analytical pursuits literally blew his mind. Farnsworth is not unique in this respect. When one becomes completely entrenched within the left brain and obsessed with an exclusively analytical lifestyle (which then becomes a belief package to be defended), there is a loss of cognitive functioning and behavioural control. This explains why there is so much anger and hostility among debunkers and hardcore skeptics. The bullying aspect of their narcissistic left brain creates a superiority complex, in that they come to believe they know all and see all, when in reality, they are running half-empty with one aspect of their human experience essentially missing. This part of the human experience where intuition, hunches, insight and social intelligence of the most subtle and intricate forms are a complete mystery to them. To the skeptical debunker, things—’either are or they are not’—there is no grey area, as they are ironically not fully utilizing their own grey matter to its full potential.  Stress is then incurred upon their left hemisphere cognitive functioning and behavioural deficiencies result. They are not calling people ‘morons’ and ‘retards’ as a general insult or standard Internet ‘courage’— the debunkers and hardcore skeptics are deeply frustrated and near hysterical to the point

where they see anyone who is open-minded and willing to indulge the mysterious as being akin to an alien life form. They simply cannot relate to the rest of us. We are ‘irrational’, ‘lacking reason’ ‘lost in woo’. Their experience of being human and how they describe it through crude metaphors whereby ‘we are just DNA robots’ and there is nothing else going on—is not how the rest of us experience our lives. We know there is much more to the human experience than these left-brained internees of the hardcore skeptic and debunker faction assume. Much, much more. So the next time you find yourself confronted with a hardcore skeptic or debunker, do not even bother to try and make your argument or present your point of view to them, as you are throwing 100% of a human experience in 50% of a selfrepressed cognitive understanding. It’s not their fault they are the way they are. They are victims of an educational system which began in Prussia in the eighteenth century and which has led humanity into one scientific genocide and meat grinder after the next.  Use your intuition and ignore them. You do not need their validation and approval, as they are only interested in what the men in the white coats tell them that which is a ‘fact’. Be polite and continue to follow your own field of study and knowledge path, and then see where it leads you. This may lead you nowhere, but so what. The journey is often more important than the destination. Your life will be more rewarding, creative and enriching for allowing your right brain to take part in the imagination of yourself within this five-sense reality we call human existence.

o you ever feel that so many things are coming at you from all directions? That all your senses are overloaded? Constant noises....humming and buzzing and beeping from all our many electrical toys..... silence seems to be on the endangered list! Everywhere one looks there is some form of visual stimulus, bigger TV’s, brighter lights, flashier signs, electronic screens and ambient light twenty-four hours a day. Our other senses are equally “on” and transmitting even as we sleep. This sensory awareness has allowed us to survive and thrive for centuries. Knowing when danger is lurking or something is burning or food tastes “bad” is crucial for survival. In our rapidly changing and sensory attuned times we have excelled at finding new ways to tickle our senses, to bombard ourselves into overload. Wouldn’t it be great for once to give our sensory system a rest, a true rest? You can...keep reading! Back in 1954, Dr. John Cunningham Lilly created the first sensory deprivation tank that allowed users to shut off many, if not most, external sensory stimuli. Using warm sea water and a unique looking black-out mask, people experienced some relief from light and sound in the warm water. At UBC in the 1970’s something called REST (Restricted Environmental Stimulation Therapy) was developed. Here users wore gear and then were submerged in water. Over the last sixty years sensory deprivation tanks have evolved into the sophisticated and scientific environments we have today. Most modern tanks (called floatation tanks) are now so controlled that you hear, see and feel almost nothing except your own breathing and maybe your own heartbeat, even at times hear your eyelids open and close. Can you imagine? This is accomplished by floating in a dark tank of

warm water so dense that it allows you to float completely without any effort at all...gravity free! The tank is usually about 4 feet by 8 feet with 10 inches of super saturated magnesiumsulphate water kept at body temperature (93.5 degrees F. ) It takes about 800 - 900 lbs. of epsom salts to create this gravity free environment which has a specific gravity of 1.3. The system is kept very sanitary and constantly filtered and monitored according to rigorous regulations. What happens to us in the tank? After showering and then entering the tank, the door closes shutting out light and sound. No worries, the tank opens from the inside, no need to feel trapped for those of us that aren’t great in small spaces....or even leave the top off if you want as the room is dark and quiet. Once comfortably inside and floating on your back, you can just relax and allow your body to adjust to the complete absence of light and sound....a first for many of us…and quite womb-like. The body settles into a quiet that is nearly absolute, with your sense of touch unable to feel the end of you and the beginning of the water that you float on. It is like you have merged with your surroundings with virtually no sense of “body”. It is the deepest rest you may ever experience. It provides both physical and mental relaxation. As your session comes to an end, soft music is piped in to gently bring you back to a more awakened state. In terms of what happens to the body on the inside, let’s take a look. As about 90% of the brain’s activity is involved in processing our environments through our senses, the brain can change focus in the floatation tank as it isn’t busy with our surroundings. The brain can attend to other things such as

healing and balancing the body in other ways. The de-stimulation of the brain induces a parasympathetic response. Blood pressure drops and the heart rate slows, muscles relax and soften and oxygen consumption is reduced and lymphatic flow is increased. Stress levels drop as evidenced by lower cortisol levels. The brain waves slip into a theta state like the one we experience just before falling asleep. This gives us greater access to the subconscious and can enhance creativity, intuition, inspiration and problem solving. Even the magnesium and sulphates from the epsom salts can be beneficial. The body is able to absorb some of these nutrients through the immersed skin and use them for detoxification and other processes. Magnesium is needed for over 300 enzymatic reactions in the body, and involved in how insulin is utilized at the cellular level. These changes in the body and mind have given such relief to people with anxiety and stress on many levels, giving relief even for those suffering from various addictions. Studies have been conducted to verify the physical and behavioural changes that occur during and after sessions in a floatation tank. Pain levels are lowered and sleep and energy levels increased. The relaxing effects can last for a week or two after the sensory deprivation experience. Some people report more acute senses after the session, such as smell, taste and sounds and a heightened sense of colour. Where can you access this amazing experience? The Float house in Vancouver is opening its doors this May after a challenging two year process. Working with the Ministry of Health to develop regulations and guidelines for the unique business, Michael Zaremba and his brother, Andy, are excited to share this

experience with all of us. In their beautiful state of the art facility which has been so thoughtfully put together, they will have five floatation tanks; each located in a private room, complete with its own shower. For the best experience, Michael encourages floating in our birthday suits so that we feel no fabric sensations on the skin. After the 90 minute float, the user will shower and have a chance to relax in the common area and share their experience over a cup of tea, or to relax silently in a peaceful environment to quietly process their experience and if desired read from books available there. Michael finds each person will experience it a little differently and express it in their own way. Many want to chat and share the experience as it is so effective, mind opening, and fun. The reason Michael and Andy want to give us all a chance to try sensory deprivation stems from their own positive personal and expansive experiences with floatation tanks. It is “such a restorative place to be” Michael passionately explains. “Everybody benefits” and it allows us to get in touch with our “internal reality”. Michael has felt a “deeper personal meaning” since regular use of the floatation tank. He says that the benefits deepen with regular use. The Float House will offer multiple-use passes that may be shared with several people. The options will allow for affordable access so that many of us can continue our paths of personal growth in this way by incorporating this powerful practice of enhancing “conscious sensitivity”. How exciting to step into “Nothingness” and emerge with a sharper sense of everything. I am sure the Float House will give many of us the pleasant and unique opportunity to relax into a different way of experiencing the world around us and the one within.

e all have the experience of rejuvenation and joy on a vibrant spring day when the sap is rising in the plants and the tree buds are bursting with new life. Water is at the very heart of life creation. Sitting by a waterfall or on the rocks at the edge of the ocean on a sunny day, one can feel the energy of the water in one’s body. Water is closely linked to the emotions. There is a strong resonance of water with humans. Our ancestors were fascinated by its magic and there is a vast mythology linked to water. Water carries all life. But water is beyond time, for it bears in its flow the seeds of future life, as well as the memory of past life. Water mediates between life and death, between being and not being, between health and sickness. We have lost touch with the magic of water, the freshness of the mountain spring, the reflection in a mountain lake, the mystery of the sacred well. We just take for granted that water will come at the turn of a tap. We have allowed water to spread illness and disease. Much is spoken these days of the destructive nature of water. Such water is Nature on the rampage, perhaps showing who is boss, at a time when humanity has wrought so much reckless damage to Earth’s ecosystems and to the natural environment. Our bodies are composed of about 70% water, a similar percentage to that of the ocean surface compared to land. Blood and sap are really variations of water. Earth is known as the planet of water; astronauts wondered at Earth’s blue, shimmering, watery aura seen from space. It seems as if water was intended for life; certainly life could not have come without it. Water is found throughout the Universe, though seldom as a liquid, which requires the relatively narrow

temperature band which our Earth provides. Without doubt water is the most important substance on Earth. It drives everything, from the most delicate metabolic processes in our bodies, to creating environments favourable to life, to weather patterns and climate change. The poet, philosopher and scientist, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832) was, more than anyone, a bridge between pre-and postEnlightenment thinking. He sensed a profound difference in outlook between the new rational, mechanistic and more exclusive worldview, and the more traditional inclusive, Naturecentred view. He called the latter ‘holistic’ science in contrast to ‘reductionist’ science. Goethe understood that all life is one, closely interconnected and interrelated, with water as the very symbol of holism, with its role in the sustenance of life. Goethe referred to water as “the ground of all being.” Thales of Miletus (640-546 BCE) also believed water to be infused with Being, believing it was the original substance of the Cosmos. The Austrian ‘Water Wizard’, Viktor Schauberger (1885-1958), held a similar view, saying that water is the product of the subtle energies that brought the Earth into being and is itself a living substance.

to have been practised for thousands of years. Usually a part of this complex ceremony was given to the recitation of the spiritual traditions of the tribe. The ‘speaker’, a position often handed down in one of the chief families, performed this important role. The training of future speakers was a longobserved ritual, involving teaching the young person to listen to the wind from mountaintops, to the sound of the ocean waves on the rocky shore, and to the music of the rushing stream. They would in this way learn to incorporate Nature’s sounds and cadences in the telling of the stories of the tribe’s wisdom. To these people, water was a sacred medium of communication and they felt its sounds should be the vehicle for teaching their traditions. How water informs language is hinted by many of the ancient scripts which employ flowing lines like water in their characters (for instance Hebrew). Greek became more regular, but it was Latin with its angular, straight characters that forgot the memory of water. Latin script initiated the estrangement from Nature, forming the basis for Euclidean geometry with its circle, straight line and point which are not to be found in Nature. There are esoteric uses for water. Nostradamus used a bowl of water as a scrying tool for seeing future events. Viktor Schauberger had a remarkable experience while sitting by a rushing stream in his pristine Alpine refuge. Listening to its vivacious music, he intuited how water needs to move and behave in order to stay healthy, which was to inform his ground breaking research. Our attitude toward water has changed enormously in recent centuries. With the advent of rationalism and the denial of spiritual influences on humanity came the great explosion of technology that loudly proclaimed human supremacy over Nature. Since we decided we were not part of Nature and we devised our own self-centred laws, we have lost touch with the magic of water. We have forgotten its true nature and the meaning of its pulsating movements. Our biology and physics textbooks tell us that water is merely an inorganic compound through which various chemical processes take place. One of the reasons why mainstream science knows so little about water may be its obsession with the physical nature of life. Older cultures did not suffer from this limited worldview and consequently appreciated water’s special qualities better than we do today.

Sacred Knowledge

Holism

Until quite modern times, water was generally regarded as sacred. This precious substance used to require a great deal of effort to collect for domestic use (and still does in some parts of the world). It was treated with reverence and believed to be protected by divine beings. One of the principal cultural ceremonies of the Pacific Northwest indigenous tribes in British Columbia was the ‘potlatch’, believed

The key to understanding water and living more in tune with our environment is to learn to see and feel holistically as part of a community of beings – human, animal, microbial, and botanical – united by a common bond of water. It is through the medium of water that we all share a common heritage – we are all One. Ancient mystical systems, especially Hindu, Taoist and Buddhist, held water in particular reverence and understood some of its quantum qualities, even if they did not describe them in the terms of quantum science. Neils Bohr and Robert Oppenheimer, pioneers of quantum physics, and more recently David Bohm, Einstein’s protégé, found remarkable similarities between their new worldview and the concept of the oneness of all creation held by those mystical systems. Water is the epitome of holism. It connects all of life; and life cannot exist without it. Spiritual and mystical experiences have a strong link with holism. Dynamic water, when it is alive and energized, performs the roles of initiating and operating all the processes of life. The most important function of biological water is to facilitate rapid inter-communication between cells and connective tissues, so that the organism can function as a coordinated whole. Though not recognized by mainstream science, living water in fact performs this intercommunication function between all

organisms, groups of organisms, populations, natural kingdoms and the world, creating a network of sensitivity throughout all of life, even between life on Earth and the Cosmos, so that nothing can happen without affecting other processes; all are linked together by water. In this way, it drives evolution. The story needs to be told simply of how water is the stage manager of life, communicating to our bodies’ cells how to be part of a vast orchestra; how it distributes energy to make the landscape balanced and productive. Indeed the very laws which govern the harmonious movement of the planets also determined the form and behaviour of our organic life, through water. This extraordinary picture of water’s part in the evolution of life derives from the discovery of the quantum field that interconnects all of creation in a vast web of energy. Rudolf Steiner and his interpreter Theodor Schwenk believed that the quantum field (also known as the etheric field) contains the encoded data bank of the information required for evolution to proceed.

Yin Yang Balance Viktor Schauberger demonstrated how life, both at the maintenance level and in evolutionary processes depends on the subtle balancing between energy polarities, shown at its best in the unstable balancing between positive and negative polarities in water’s behaviour. These have not been well described in scientific writing, therefore a summary of their importance would seem desirable. The Sun is our main source of energy. In Chinese tradition, it emits a positive, yang (masculine) energy. The Earth balances this with a yin, or feminine (negative) energy. Without this interplay, there would be no water, plants, nor chemical compounds. Yin and yang are dynamic in the sense that their energy fluctuates – when one expands, the other diminishes. The concentration of energy is a yin process, while that to move and disperse is yang. Western thought holds them as fixed states, but in the Chinese tradition they are constantly shifting. Thus, in every man there is feminine energy and in every woman there is masculine energy, these tendencies varying in different situations. It is the same in Nature. Mornings tend to have yang energy and evenings yin. As Fritjof Capra comments: “Chinese sages seem to have recognized the basic polarity that is characteristic of living systems. Self-assertion is achieved by displaying yang behaviour; by being demanding, aggressive, competitive, expanding, and – as far as human behaviour is concerned – by using linear, analytical, political thinking. Integration is furthered by yin behaviour; by being responsive, cooperative, intuitive, and aware of one’s environment. Both yin and yang, integrative and self-assertive tendencies, are necessary for harmonious social and ecological relationships.” One can see that our society has favoured yang over yin – rational knowledge over intuitive wisdom, science over religion, competition over cooperation, and exploitation over conservation. All processes depend on an unstable reciprocity between extremes. As soon as a process becomes stable, it stagnates. It’s the same with water. Moving, circulating water is energized; still water is effectively dead. Water is the ideal medium for processes because it is an unstable and dynamic medium and, and without water, nothing in Earth’s environment can change. Nature is founded far more on cooperation than on competition, because it is only through harmonious interplay of energy that physical formation can occur and structures can be built up. At the heart of the creative process in Nature are negative and positive polarities, such as chaos and order, quantity and quality, gravitation and levitation, electricity and magnetism. (The last polarities Schauberger studied as complementary qualities.) In every case, for any natural process to be harmonious, one polarity cannot be present without the other, and each needs the other to make up the whole.

Continued from previous page Natural law, as Viktor Schauberger describes, requires that, for creative evolution to be maintained, the polarities are not 50/50, which would result in atrophy, but are unevenly balanced towards the yin or negative. Water’s principal quality is to bring balance to life. For this reason, you would expect it to be very stable; in fact, the reverse is true. The water molecule is made up of two small positively charged hydrogen atoms and one very large negatively charged oxygen atom; the strong bifurcated hydrogen bonds are unsymmetrical, which make water unstable and unpredictable. This instability belongs not only to the aquatic sphere; it is the guiding law of the Universe since its inception. Instability and unpredictability are the secret of matter’s very existence, and the impulse for creativity. As we all know, predictability is the recipe for a boring existence. It is the restlessness of water that stimulates its pulsation and constant swinging between the yin and the yang. The dance of creation is the harmonious interplay through attraction and repulsion of polarized atoms. The mutual attraction of 2x H and 1x O gives birth to the marvel of water. The catalytic role of dual polarity is initiated by the positive charge of the Sun, the inseminator of life, which melds with the Earth’s receptive and feminine energy. Together they are essential components for all biological processes. We don’t normally think of water carrying an electric charge, but its bioelectrical sensitivity is one of the most important qualities in its importance for life. The electromagnetic qualities of mineral-rich or saline water allow it to steer processes and evolution by constantly shifting the energy reciprocally between positive and negative charges. Schauberger showed that a natural river flowing sinuously across the landscape recharges its energy towards the positive or yang on right-hand bend and towards the negative or yin on a left-hand bend. This constant accumulation of yin and yang charges raises the energy level of the water so that it can perform its true role in nurturing the landscape. The same happens with our biological water. Through spiralling movement, water maintains its energy as ‘living water’. In its most dynamic state, water develops the structure of a vortex which raises its energy level – more quickly if the direction of the spin alternates between left and right (http://tinyurl.com/ bpor969). Because the quantum or etheric field is universal and water is common in the Universe, associated with life or potential life, it seems natural to view them as complementary, working together. In esoteric terms the etheric (sometimes called “the God field”) may be seen as the masculine (yang), initiating polarity; while the water medium has the receptive, feminine (yin) role. What I propose is that the water medium and the quantum field are two complementary aspects in the balanced mediation, sustenance and evolution of life. You might call this a candidate for the ‘Unified Field Theory’. If we say that water builds the physical

structures of living organisms, this begs the question of where are the templates? We believe they are held in the etheric or quantum field, often encoded in sacred geometry. For example the indispensable container for the emergence of new life is the egg shape, the only shape in which water can circulate spontaneously: the egg and similar shapes like the pine cone, or spiral structures such as seashells or leaf designs have a symmetry defined by phi (Φ) or ‘The Golden Section’. These symmetries have a yin/yang ratio which can be defined mathematically by the number 1:1.618033988, which seems always to be associated in Nature with the transmutation of energy into form.

Communication What is the scientific evidence for water as a communication medium? An exciting discovery in recent years has been the strange role that water plays in biological communication. It has come to light that collagen, the connective tissue that makes up the bulk of all multicellular animals, is crucial to the integrity of the organism. It is composed of a crystalline matrix of collagen proteins embedded in water, compromising 60-70% by weight. This water is specially structured in chains along the collagen fibres and has the ability to self-organize. Dr. Mae-Wan Ho, co-founder of the Institute for Science in Society, and one of the most prominent holistic biophysicists, has specialized in the role of biological water. She believes that the collagen chains enable water to become superconductive, an ideal medium for instantaneous communication for coordination of all cellular activities. She believes that this liquid crystal continuum constitutes our “body consciousness” that may well have evolved before the nervous system, but which today works both in partnership with, and also independently of, the nervous system. “This body consciousness is the basis of sentience, the prerequisite for conscious experience that involves the participation of the intercommunicating whole of the energy storage domain.” We hear increasingly of water being described as a “conscious organism.” It is an organism in the sense that it has integrity, independence, cohesion, and particular qualities that allow it to be the driver of life and evolution. The quality of consciousness may also seem a strange term to apply to water. But if it’s the medium of communication, it could also be the medium of consciousness. Viktor Schauberger and Theodor Schwenk demonstrated that the water medium also has intelligence. Water has the quality of restlessness which gives living systems the ability to become ever more complex and to strive forward toward perfection. We use the term ‘intelligence’ in connection with water because it optimizes the conditions for life by regulating environmental processes. At a temperature of 37°C (98.4°F), water requires a very large input or removal of

kinetic energy in order for its temperature to rise, allowing it to keep the blood in the human body at a constant temperature of 37°C, any deviation from which indicates illness. Another of the intelligences of water is that it takes a lot of energy to freeze and, once frozen to melt; and a huge amount of energy to vaporize water which stops the air from excessive heating. This makes water a very effective balancer of climatic extremes. The warmer the air, the more water vapour it can hold, and the longer the temperature can remain constant. The interaction of these three properties of water has created a temperate climate zone on Earth with optimum conditions for evolution of the human species. Certainly complex civilizations could not have evolved without the stability of moderate, stable climates. Without these self-regulating systems, life could never have developed beyond the simplest forms.

Water’s Memory Much has been written about water’s memory. Does it have a memory? Masaru Emoto studied the structure of ice crystals to determine the quality of their liquid water origin. He demonstrates how poor quality water cannot build good structures, while high quality water produces the most beautiful crystalline designs. Amazingly, water that has been exposed to harmonious music or exalted human energies can produce pure beautiful crystals, while when it is exposed to disruptive energies it cannot produce well structured crystals. When water is flowing as its nature dictates, energetically in spirals and vortices, and continually changing its state, the molecules, if conditions permit, organize themselves into structures, layers or clusters of vibrating energy centres which carry constructive information, constantly receiving and transmitting energy from every contact the water body makes. These clusters or layers can store vibrational energy impressions or imprints, rather like a magnetic tape. If these are beneficial, they may be able to restore healthy resonance in the human body, as in homoeopathy. On the other hand if there are the imprints of toxins or pollutants in the drinking water, they may be carriers of disharmony and disease. Water does have a memory. When we think we have ‘purified’ water of the chemicals and hormones we have mindlessly thrown in, in order to make it drinkable, the energy of these contaminants remains, polluting our energy bodies in the same way that chemicals affect our physical bodies. Because of its nature, water sacrifices itself entirely to the environment, for good or for bad. How can we experience water’s spiritual qualities? My water epiphany came spontaneously when I had the realization that I am embedded in water. I saw water as the infinite continuum of life in which all living creatures are contained. This experience was much more powerful than the intellectual idea of being connected. “We are all one,” because of water.

I find being close to horses a bit scary. One day, the field where I walk regularly had three mares with their growing foals. I liked to take them apples as a treat, but when all six surrounded me, they felt a bit threatening. When I tried to visualize these lovely, powerful animals as part of my family through the water link, they seemed to become more like family and they were much less scary. This is what you might call a ‘holistic connection’. Try it yourself; it can even work with people! In Eastern tradition, when you greet someone, you bow your head to them or palm your hands together in front of your heart in recognition of that person’s Divine nature, because our biological water (or blood) is a sacred link to the Divine in all of us.

Water as Teacher Water can teach us many things: The most important lesson is that Nature will not tolerate gross inequalities: Water’s role is to bring down to size, to level, to stimulate fertility and productivity of the whole, not individuals in isolation. Through water, quantum coherent organisms invariably become entangled with one another. A quantum world is a world of universal mutual entanglement, the prerequisite for universal love and ethics. Because we are all entangled, and each being is implicit in every other, the best way to benefit oneself is to benefit the other. It is the restlessness of water that gives living systems the ability to become ever more complex and to strive towards the perfection they can never reach. As a driver of evolution, water is a model for our own striving, allowing us to evolve through our own mistakes. This is the self-empowerment process of holistic biology. Water raises its dynamic energy through turbulence and chaos which, in the bigger picture, mirrors the turbulence of change in human society. The dynamic way that water creates energy shows up our technology’s way of generating energy as wasteful, dangerous, and harmful to the environment. You might call these “Natural or Spiritual Laws” as opposed to the anthropocentric laws that we construct. If we could personally experience and truly understand the miraculous properties of water for life, our lives would become more meaningful and, (if it is not too late) we could become responsible custodians of Nature. _______________ Alick Bartholomew is the author of The Story of Water (UK ed) / The Spiritual Life of Water (US ed) and of Hidden Nature: The Startling Insights of Viktor Schauberger.

Can The Awakening Be Hijacked? by Zen Gardner

O

nce we understand that everything is an illusion we’re home free. Knowing we’re eternal consciousness having this in-body experience is the greatest gift anyone can possibly wake up to. It’s wonderful, it’s free and it’s forever…and it’s for everyone! People just need to wake up to it. That would seem to be fairly simple, especially once it has happened to you. The fullness of life you expand into, the realization of infinite possibility, is so exhilarating, liberating and profoundly simple that you can’t help but wonder why everyone doesn’t see it. This is especially so once the grand conspiracy being foisted on humanity comes into crystal clear focus. Things really kick into high gear upon realizing fully what’s going on and why we’re here at this crucial time. The notion that this wonderful realization should be apparent to all soon fades though, when we remember being in that entranced unconscious state ourselves, and how we thought we understood pretty well what life was all about. Check.

ZenGardner.com How Did It Happen? Almost all of us were once encased in something that kept us apart from this simple experiential realization. That encasement was both natural and engineered. Natural in the sense that we are spirit born into a physical body, so there is a dimensional challenge right

there. The real problems arise with the cultural and societal constructs we are born into. As helpless infants for an extensive period of time after birth, we are at the complete mercy of whomever is caring for us. Although we are inherently spiritual beings, if this is not corroborated by the spirit and behavior of those around us a type of callous begins to grow to obfuscate that knowledge. Much like waking from a dream and not being able to remember it as a whole different “reality” takes over our senses. It just happens. If people have dumbed down parents they will most likely be dumbed down as well. At least on the surface. In later years they perhaps can wake up out of that environment as many of us have done. 

The War On Consciousness Children are very often extremely spiritual, often remembering their previous state in detail. Children are born pure. If this inherent spirituality is encouraged and the reality of our true nature reinforced, this would be a very different world. However it rarely is. Those indigenous peoples who were not raised in engineered societies but only within simple cultural guidelines are very spiritual and natural. There is no “waking up”, they just never went to sleep. This is why these rich, conscious cultures and their shamans have been systematically decimated by the ugly Controllers. They do not want an awakened populace. Period. And these spiritually rich, unharnessed indigenous peoples carried this awareness and connectivity that the Controllers so despise. So in their view the children of the world must be made to conform to a system as limiting and spiritually confining as possible. This will include drugging, mind control, restrictive false education in militaristic institutions, treadmill like jobs, mindless diversions and constant propaganda. In other words: the imposed world system around us. If you’re wondering why the global crack down is so fierce and Orwellian and is accelerating at break neck speed, this is why. The awakening is spreading like wildfire. And they know it. This is why predators like Zbigniew Brzezinski see the awakening as a threat and say things like “It is infinitely easier to kill a million people than it is to control them.” (See for yourself here.) This the kind of monster we’re up against.

Original Sin – The Seed of the Matrix The most clever and effective tools to control mankind are religion and belief systems. Instead of fully denying our spirituality, they acknowledge it, then channel and control it. Win the masses over by appealing to this innate drive in each of us to realize our spiritual potential and take them to another nicely decorated cell they think is freedom. They use this tactic a lot. Just look at the infrastructure of the Catholic Church for probably the most blatant and elaborate example. The other religions and denominations aren’t far behind. Anything to “protect” us from reality and personal responsibility. Original sin is one of the most colossal reversals of truth of all time. That and the fear of death. From start to finish these parasitic overlords lie, steal, destroy, manipulate and kill. They’re never satisfied. But that’s how they do it, reverse and confuse everything until your true orientation is almost impossible to find. Or so they’d like to think. That we were born in “sin” and need someone else to pay a fee to get our innocence back couldn’t be more binding, never mind exclusive of everyone who doesn’t see why they have to pay this toll for just arriving here. It’s like having to buy land and water on our own planet. Who the hell thinks they own this place? In reality we were born pure until they put their filthy matrix trip on us. Even then they will never conquer our indomitable conscious spirit. 

If You Can’t Beat ‘em, Lead ‘em

Who can you trust in this day and age, even with the internet communication and information revolution? It’s obvious the PTBs will try to subvert or nullify the Truth movement, or whatever you want to call it. They must think we’re naive dolts like the “asleeple” and just awaiting their fascist harvesting combine. Quite the arrogant disconnect there, when their machinations are so obvious to the rest of us. But that makes sense, when they live in a lower density mind trap and can’t even conceive of our state of consciousness. Overall there’s a lot to be wary of. And that’s a healthy attitude. Am I paranoid? Damn straight I am. They are after us. Reminds me of Arthur Conan Doyle’s “The Most Dangerous Game”

Page 26

where the ultimate hunt for the gamesman is a human being. That’s their mindset.

I Don’t Believe in Believing When it comes down to it, don’t believe anyone. Belief is a form of spiritual weakness. Faith or knowledge is a whole different animal, but belief will get you in trouble. Pursue until you are fully convinced. Sometimes it takes some doing, many times you just know something in your heart to be true. That’s not a belief, that’s knowing. That is where we derive our power, our happiness, our effectiveness. Belief will have you living in vain, vain repetitive prayers or rituals, vain longings for what you desire as you await the graces of some deity; vain hopes for things that could be realized through knowing affirmation. Even the quantum physicists know better. What we intend and focus our attention on becomes manifest. Our knowing creates our world. I tell people all the time to not believe me or take my word for it. People need to find out for themselves. That’s what’s wrong with the world today. Everyone just blindly follows the dictates of the matrix. What choices they do make are within a carefully contained compartment, giving the illusion of freedom. I’m just sharing my take and if it resonates or helps people on their way, great. People need to get their own knowledge and perspective. I just want to help turn over a few stones as I’m learning myself and stir people up a bit and maybe inspire and spur them to action to free themselves and others. If someone thinks I’m full of crap that’s fine with me. They go their way and I go mine. But let’s at least acknowledge the sanctity of having the freedom to each pursue and learn for ourselves. I like it when people challenge anything, as long as it’s constructive and in a spirit of wanting to learn and find the truth of the matter. When someone shoves their program too hard or it’s for self justification or aggrandizement watch out. We all get out of it sometimes but when there’s a regular pattern we have a problem. But even then, take the good stuff and leave the rest. You’ll usually find yourself looking at other sources naturally and leaving the questionables behind.

Truth Psy-Ops The Truth community or alternative research community is already infiltrated, you just know it is by simple logic. The PTB’s (power that be) motto is to lead the opposition, that’s how to control it. So you know they are amongst the places we all visit for information trying to mislead and misinform. Some are obvious like the politicized bullshit or obvious religiously oriented propaganda. Some aren’t that easy to spot, much like these new computer viruses that appear and disappear. With real conscious awareness comes discernment. We need to listen with our ears and minds, but most of all with our hearts. I can’t say I know for sure who’s who myself but you can usually sniff them out. For example, there are some who’ve captured the so-called “patriots’” attention with mountains of exposes and angry rhetoric and most don’t have a clue where they’re being led and what a diversion it potentially is. Even some of the alternative health sites have some very questionable viewpoints and allegiances. The information in these compromised outlets is mostly bang on, otherwise it wouldn’t work. But there are usually major gaps missing from the full Truth, or it’s caged in a structured paradigm that by definition is limiting and will only land us in new versions of the same problems. Eventually, partial or adulterated truth leads nowhere compared to the full truth. Worse yet, disinfo and fear .based information is designed to bring on the much desired engineered slaughter of those who don’t fully wake up. Maybe it’s all karmic and is what has to happen with people getting waylaid by partial truths, I don’t know. I do know what my path is and it’s not based on a destination or outcome. The

Modern

Woman by Tierre Joline Taylor

A

s a modern woman I find it helps tremendously to have as much emotional awareness as I can in order to stay balanced, because life is dynamic, active and always speaking to us in one way or the other. That’s why we need some awesome tools to empower us along the way. I’m going to let you in on the recent discovery I’ve made about a topic that makes me uncomfortable just to approach it, but one that has opened the door to a greater feeling of freedom in my life. The subject matter... Vulnerability. I’m beginning to squirm at just the thought of it. Am I trying to torture myself? Not only do I now have to face the dreaded blank page, but also I’ve put myself to the task of opening up about a subject that is quite frightening and often left unexplored. So, I better jump right in before I find someway to gracefully excuse myself from such a challenge. First of all, what does it mean to be vulnerable? Wikipedia tells us that ‘Vulnerability refers to being able to be wounded, to be open to attack.’ For me I think the key in this definition is the word ‘open’. To be vulnerable is to open oneself, that’s why it feels so tender and scary because of the feeling that we are standing naked, uncovered, no longer hidden. The thing of it is there is much more to it than just that.

Taking Responsibility Continued from page 2

connect to divinity in history. The Catholic Church has one of the most strident examples of this with the invention of indulgences –you could be forgiven your sins and an eternal damnation in a very literal hell if you just told your priest about all your evil ways and gave him some money. While the sacrament of penance is all well and good – let’s not forget that we can forgive ourselves and our brothers and sisters on this planet without a middleman. We can also choose to act differently, and instead of sinning – which really means miss the mark – as in make a mistake – in the same way over and over again (which sounds pretty much like hell to me) we can learn from our mistakes and become ‘enlightened.’ We are made of earth and ashes, as the great poet Rumi suggests, but we are also made of the primordial, infinite substance that made the entire Universe. Literally. We don’t need a

Exploring the Landscape of Vulnerability

Because it can be so completely revealing it is also a place of great strength, one where we can cultivate courage and awareness about ourselves. Once I realized that I didn’t need to be so afraid of the sensitivity I felt in being vulnerable, I found I had access to more energy than I was perviously aware of having. In the past, when I encountered emotional pain in my life, a part of me would decide that I needed to protect myself. But as I grew and changed that protection started to feel really tight somehow, my movements felt constricted and my sense of freedom in the world began to vanish. It wasn’t long before I learned that my protection had now closed me in, and I began to feel trapped. An inner struggle began. I no longer felt free in the world, this is because I now had something I needed to protect. I struggled to get out from the armour that weighed me down. It wasn’t until I began to strengthen my courage once again by embracing my feelings of vulnerability that I felt the heaviness lifting from my ‘shoulders’. If I open to the world instead of closing down to it, if I see it from a new perspective, a new understanding, then even if it touches those tender places, I know in my heart that I’m strong enough to bear it through to the other end of the experience which is so often rewarding and transformative. By practicing this in my life I’ve been experiencing a whole new sense of strength and well being.

The trick: I’ve begun the discipline of acknowledging and honouring my feelings of vulnerability instead of closing myself off to them. I’m remaining open to these tender feelings of mine instead of trying to get far away from them. I examine them in detail so that I am familiar with the sensations in my body, and in this fashion I can detect them quickly and easily when they come up for me again. I’m also listening to them closely so I can better understand how to care for myself when these feelings arise. This takes courage, but this process is all about building courage. A little practice in knowing oneself as courageous does wonders. The main idea is to gain emotional awareness of this feeling and in that way we can tend to ourselves with love and understanding. The feeling of vulnerability that I speak of often comes to light when we are facing a situation that makes us uncomfortable, tender, and consequently more susceptible to feeling hurt. Each zone of vulnerability is as individual as our personal histories and the intensity of feeling should be respected and explored at a safe and supportive pace. Vulnerability is a feeling we experience in the body, just like any other sensation. It is also often experienced in relationship to someone or something else. Can you see any common patterns in relationships to others, or even just how we treat ourselves?

Start with something small. Don’t make your first step too big. For example, if you feel vulnerable asking for some assistance any movement in that direction is a positive one. Remember we’re building our courage here and every bit, no matter how small, counts. Bolder moves down the road are made possible through the confidence gained by practice. Mastery is achieved through learned skill not through inherent talent. Vulnerability does not equate to weakness. It actually offers a tremendous amount strength and energy. That’s why it is so important to explore. It does take courage to explore this feeling, but with each step taken the opportunity arrives to see just how much courage you really have! Like an orchid slowly unfolding it’s petals, or a writer sitting down to face the blank page, or two people first getting to know one another, vulnerability is an experience that can enhance our feelings of strength and love. The landscape of Vulnerability is often a delicate place, where understanding and care need to be taken. I imagine walking through vulnerability as I would a blossoming garden in wonder at the beauty of life.

“While it is possible to construct a precarious and quite mechanical unity by political and administrative means, the unity of the human race, even if achieved, can only be secured and can only be made real if the religion of humanity, which is at present the highest active ideal of mankind, spiritualizes itself and becomes the inner law of human life.” ~ Sri Aurobindo, The Ideal of Human Unity middleman to this connection to the Infinite. It is innate within us. While we don’t need to give up our religions, it is interesting to note that over 15% of Americans now claim they ‘have no religion.’ Spirituality and religion don’t go hand in hand, and it’s time we realized we could be one without the other. Our spirituality can only reach as far as our spiritual maturity – and while we were reckless teenagers, we needed a Father-figure to tell us what to do and how to pray. An intermediary to get to God, you could say. Now, though, we are maturing, and becoming more responsible, so we can see that our actions, do indeed, have very real consequences. We are behooved to act with charity and kindness, not because someone

tells us to, but because we understand the laws of karma as immutable forces in the universe that teach us how to function within it. We don’t need clergy/pedophiles to tell us that diddling young boys is wrong nor do we need a church to tell us that stealing isn’t right.  It’s time that our religious views stopped causing arrested development, so that our spiritual realization can take root in our actions. This article is not meant to cause guilt or shame, but as a gentle and friendly reproof – a reminder that we can all do more to affect change. It also aims to enliven the part of you, which still realizes you are powerful beyond measure. Until we take 100% responsibility for what we have created, we can’t create

something new and utterly different, and that is what this self-created hell is calling us to do. It is simply a very acute lesson in being careful what we create. We created all of this, and now we can create something different. _______________ Christina Sarich is a musician, yogi, humanitarian and freelance writer who channels many hours of studying Lao Tzu, Paramahansa Yogananda, Rob Brezny,  Miles Davis, and Tom Robbins into interesting tidbits to help you Wake up Your Sleepy Little Head, and See the Big Picture.

Monsanto - FDA

Continued from page 3 Even as their bottom lines erode, these newspapers and television networks have to stay on their present course. By pretending they’re reporting the real news, they’re giving the impression that Monsanto and the FDA are home free. Again, we aren’t talking about sloppy reporting or accidental omissions of fact or boggling incompetence or ignorance about science. We are talking about conscious intent to deceive. Yes, now and then the controlled media will release a troubling piece about Monsanto. But placement and frequency are everything. How often do these stories run? Do they run as

the lead or do we find them on page 7? Are reporters assigned to keep pounding on a basic story and reveal more and more crimes? Does the basic story gather steam over the course of weeks and months? These are the decisions that make or break a story. In the case of Monsanto and the FDA, the decisions were made a long time ago. Part of every new reporter’s training, if he has any ideals at all, is marching into his editor’s office with his hair on fire demanding to be given an assignment to expose a crime. The Jacquie Stolk editor, knowing the true agenda of his newspaper or television network, tells the reporter: 778–899–1179 “We’ve already covered that.” bluelotusrevitalizedhealth.ca “It’s old news.” “People aren’t interested in it.” “It’s too complicated.” “The evidence you’re showing me is thin.” “You’ll never get to the bottom of it.” “The people involved won’t talk to you.” And if none of those lies work, the editor might say, “If you keep pushing this, it would be bad for your career. You’ll lose access for other stories. You’ll be thought of as weird…” This is how the game works at ground level. But make no mistake about it, the hidden agenda is about protecting an elite’s op from exposure. If NBC, for example, gave its golden boy, Brian Williams, the green light, he would become an expert on Monsanto in three days. He’d become a tiger. He’d affect a whole set of morally outraged poses and send Monsanto down into Hell.

Don’t misunderstand. Brian hasn’t been waiting to move in for the kill. He’s a neutral entity. Wind him up and point to a target and he’ll go there. But no one will point him at Monsanto or the FDA. All the major reporters at news outlets and all the elite television anchors are really psyop specialists. It’s just that most of them don’t know it. One outraged major reporter who woke up and got out of the business put it to me this way: When he was in the game, he looked at the news as a big public restroom. His one guiding Jacquie principle was: Don’t piss on your shoes. Stand closer to theStolk urinal. Pissing on your shoes was covering a story that was considered 778–899–1179 out of bounds. If you pissed on your shoes and walked into the boss’s office, he’d look atbluelotusrevitalizedhealth.ca you and see the telltale sign. He’d say, “Hey, you pissed on your shoes. That’s disgusting. Get out of here. You’re fired.” ______________________ The author of an explosive collection, THE MATRIX REVEALED, Jon was a candidate for a US Congressional seat in the 29th District of California.

Understanding The Impor tance of Love

D

o you understand the importance of Love? Love is the highest vibration of all. Love is Absolute. Love is pure gold. Love is Prime. Love is our very essence. No one can ever take it away from us because it is what we are. People only ever act out of fear or love. When they are being unloving, it is only because they are fearful. And they are fearful because they have been brought up in a world of fear. Fear is what controls us, it has been used to manipulate us. Fear keeps us small, chained up, starving, lost and crying. Fear has stifled the love that resides within us. But that love is still there. It can never leave. Our light might have become dim but it can never be snuffed out. Nothing can do that. Nothing. For our light is eternal. We carry it with us from one lifetime to the next. It is our Eternal Heart.  It is that place within us which is all knowing. It is that place that knows our Truth and will guide us if we will let it. If we will listen. It is that place that gives us the strength and the confidence to look straight through our fear, to see it for what it really is. Simply an absence of love. Once we fill that fearful space with love then fear cannot survive.  And the time has come to stop looking outside ourselves at those things that make us fearful, because when we are afraid we feel powerless. It is time to go within. Deep within. Because it is there that our secret weapon resides – the Love that is our Eternal Heart. It is Love that will defeat the dark, for Love always wins. Love is Absolute.  Remember this. For this you DO know. That no matter what happens no one can take away the essence of who you really are. Your BE’ing and DO’ing is shining a light so bright upon this world, that there is now no place for the darkness to hide. And your light IS Love. So stand firm in who you BE, face your fear and step into the unknown, for it is there you will find yourself waiting. This is the moment you have been waiting for. This is why you are here. This is your destiny. And now it’s time to live it.

Living From The Heart We are moving into a new era. One in which we are remembering who we really are. That we are unlimited Beings. That we are magnetic

by Susan Harper Todd WakeUp-World.com Beings. And it’s time to start realizing this and living from this point of awareness. We are not simply bodies, we are energy… energy through and through. The same energy as everything we see around us… and I mean everything. Hard as though that concept may be to grasp. So if you do find it hard to grasp, don’t try to analyze it, just take it as read. And know that it’s time to stop living in your head, in your mind – and that it’s time instead to start living from the heart… being guided by your feelings, your intuition, your inner knowing. That is where your power resides. That is where You reside. The all-knowing You. Your heart space is your control centre. Let the focus of your awareness be there, rather than in your mind. This is where the true You resides – the truth of who you really are. Sometimes… no… often… there are things that your mind cannot understand but your heart ‘gets’ them and these things flow into and are assimilated by your heart. These are things that you have an intuitive understanding of, that you cannot put into words. Words are limiting. We often cannot express what we feel because there are no words. And I know you know that feeling. That intense feeling of emotion, when you are overwhelmed with love, joy, amazement or

gratitude at something that has occurred. That is often when we cry, or laugh, or jump up and down to express ourselves, because words are not sufficient. When you have that overwhelming feeling of joy, love, gratitude or happiness (and happiness is probably all of those things combined), the feeling is so intense that it infuses your whole body doesn’t it? You can feel it infusing every cell and every molecule and it lights you up like a lighthouse. You are overflowing with this incredible feeling which translates into light energy. As you are filled with this light, so you are beaming it out like a lighthouse. And as these waves of light energy beam out from you they are magnetically drawing in more of the same, in unlimited amounts. It’s a flow of energy, a circular flow. The more light you emit the more you draw in and the more you draw in the more you emit… This is the flow of life. It’s energy. It’s us. The energy of our feelings is emitted from us on a particular frequency or vibration, like a radio frequency, with each ‘type’ of feeling (happy, sad, angry etc) being a different frequency. Because we are magnetic, we draw to us things that are on the same frequency or vibration as the one we are emitting. Which is

why feeling GOOD is so important. When you feel good then you are emitting the ‘feel good’ vibration and will magnetically attract to you things that are on that same frequency i.e. more things to make you feel good. And of course the same thing happens when you don’t feel good… Those feelings magnetically attract more things on the ‘not feeling good’ lower frequency… Which is why you can get stuck in a rut. And why just changing your thoughts can change your life. We are brought up and educated to believe that the mind is everything, that our mind controls us, when in fact the mind knows nothing about what is good for us emotionally or physically. The mind is a tool for us to use, but it has no idea what makes us happy – we can only know that by noticing the way we feel in response to people, things, experiences. It is our feelings that tell us what makes us happy and what is good for us. And those things that make us feel good are telling us about who we really are. Which is what we are here to experience… except many have forgotten this. So let’s now start remembering that we are energy and start paying attention to our feelings, living from our heart and being who we were born to be. For that is where our true freedom resides. __________________ I’ve been single, married, divorced and widowed.

It’s very humbling to wake up, everything is just so wonderfully clear. But it’s a massive responsibility at the same time. If we don’t manifest and utilize this awareness, it will fade and many will suffer. Therein lies the catch.

The Religious and Belief System Diversions

Awakening Hijacked? Continued from page 26

path is what I’m doing and living every day, and I’m an extremely grateful and happy person. I did have to go through several major life changes to find the full “Now” way of life, which I feel I’m still just learning about doing so at a childhood stage which I’m very comfortable with. In fact I feel I know less all the time. The wonderful mystery of it all just gets more fantastic and I’m learning to just let go and enjoy it instead of trying to figure everything out. Funny thing is, the more you do that the more wonderful things just come at you.

Page 30

The NWO is a spiritual model most of all. They want control and ultimately the spiritual is supreme and they know that. While they don’t have the conscious awareness and wonderful empathy we have, they do operate on a spiritual level, just at a different frequency. The New World Order includes a new world religion, and they’re warming up to it. There’s a plethora of disinfo tools laced into the alternative spirituality arena. If it disempowers, it’s wrong. If it directs your allegiance, it’s wrong. If it robs you of your sovereignty, it’s wrong. If it’s dogmatic and hierarchical, it’s wrong. Most lies and lying systems have all of those traits, while other aspects are more subtle. There are other attributes but for me the ones above are the most prominent. The so called New Age Movement is rife with phoney baloney trips, messiahs and deliverance doctrines. Many will be tempted to rest their weary minds and park in any one of these false peace parking spaces and expect someone to cover for them. Walk on your own two feet. There’s nothing more empowering

and liberating. We have to understand there are plenty of way-stations, indefinite stopovers, sidetracks and diversions on our path to fulness. For these psychopathic control freaks to try to hijack this awakening in every way possible is clearly a priority for our continued subjugation. The point is to get past them, and not fall for their mind candy and rhetoric, no matter how appealing. We are divine in our entirety and do not need some kind of system or group identity other than Love and Truth. Sure, groups will form as action or fellowship gatherings, but when the symptoms start appearing it is probably time to split, or enlighten those around you. Until we have a clear, consciously aware picture of what’s going on and our real situation, shortsighted actions are just rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic. So, hijack the awakening? Let them try to put out the light of the sun and stop the other stars from shining while they’re at it. What fools. Meanwhile, keep an eye out for these maniacs.  They’re getting more desperate by the day. These psychotic parasites are on the loose. We need to be smart and on our toes. And keep the light on. Those in the approaching darkness will be needing it. Much love always, Zen

Government Terror Continued from page 6

The most infamous case of the FBI steering a terror plot was the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. Before the attack, the FBI planted informant Emad A. Salem within a radical Arab group in New York led by Ramzi Yousef. Salem was ordered to encourage the group to carry out a bombing targeting the World Trade Center’s twin towers. Under the illusion that the project was a sting operation, Salem asked the FBI for harmless dummy explosives which he would use to assemble the bomb and then pass on to the group. At this point the FBI cut Salem out of the loop and provided the group with real explosives, leading to the attack on February 26 that killed six and injured over a thousand people. The FBI’s failure to prevent the bombing was reported on by the New York Times in October 1993, as well as CBS News in the clip below. http://tinyurl.com/cuez7ak

Underwear Bomber Detroit Lawyer Kurt Haskell witnessed a welldressed man help the “underwear bomber ” Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab clear security before the attempted attack on an airliner on Christmas Day 2009 despite the fact that the bomber had no passport, in addition to the fact that his own father had warned U.S. intelligence officials of the threat posed by Abdulmutallab a month before the attempted attack. It later emerged that the State Department was ordered not to revoke Abdulmutallab’s visa by “federal counterterrorism officials” even though the accused bomber had known terrorist ties. Haskell maintains that Abdulmutallab was carrying a fake bomb and was the unwitting dupe in another case of government entrapment. This is by no means an exhaustive length of cases involving false flag attacks steered or provocateured by governments – such an endeavour would fill an encyclopedia-sized book – but it is a reminder that those who forget history are doomed to repeat it, and only the myopically naive would fail to shine the spotlight on the state in the immediate aftermath of any terrorist attack.
