Are Plants More Intelligent Than People? “Even atoms possess a certain measure of intelligence.” — Thomas Edison
“To begin to understand the gorgeous fever that is consciousness, we must try to understand the senses and what they can tell us about the ravishing world we have the privilege to inhabit.” — Diane Ackerman
By Christina Sarich www.WakingTimes.com
ichal Pollan, author of The Omnivore’s Dilemma, and The Botany of Desire, has pointed out that for the longest time, even mentioning that plants could be intelligent was a quick way to being labeled a ‘whacko,’ but it turns out plants can learn, communicate, and even feel. They can also see, smell, and remember. This is definitely not news the biotechnology industry wants highlighted.
Do Plants Have ‘Brains’? In an emerging field called plant neurobiology, a bit of a misnomer since plants don’t have neurons or brains, we learn that people
who play music for their plants or understand that our actions can affect a plant’s nutrition, for example, are not ‘whackos’ at all. Plants have analogue structures to our brains and neurons. They have a way of taking in information and even sharing it with other plants. Normally you need a brain to do that, but as we’re learning in our evolving understanding of consciousness – not necessarily. Plants even ‘feel’ emotions like pain – as when a caterpillar is about to munch on its leaves – so, no doubt, they know when they are about to be doused in toxic agrochemical poisons. It is also a bit of a shocker considering
that almost a million acres of the Amazon forest have been wiped out in recent years, killing all sorts of plant and animal life in the process, when you realize that trees in forests actually talk to each other. A network of mycelium mushrooms growing on the forest floor act like the Internet, providing an information superhighway to trees in forest systems. Trees share nutrients and information though this mutually beneficial relationship with a single organism. With GMOs destroying the micro-biota and killing genetic diversity – this could mean we are literally gagging the trees, and flowers. “The Gaian ecosystem, the self-organized system that we know as Earth, came into being with the emergence of the global bacterial community. That bacterial community still is the foundation of this world. It is Gaia. It is the interconnected network of millions of bacterial biofilms, individual bacteria, and symbiogenic, bacterially generated, complex life-forms that lies deep within the crust of the Earth (perhaps by as much as 5 kilometers), covers the entire surface of the planet, and extends at least 50 kilometers above the Earth’s surface. The Earth itself is around 4.5 billion years old but sometime in its first half to one billion years of existence bacterial life emerged.” ~ Stephen Harrod Buhner, author of Plant Intelligence and the Imaginal Realm: Beyond the Doors of Perception into the Dreaming of Earth What the “powers that be” are doing to the plants is exactly what they are attempting to do to us – make a docile, information controlled, automated, robotic-like populace that is easy to control, and easy to sicken. Only, plants are possibly even smarter than WE are. In addition to having a sense of hearing, and taste, as well as the ability to learn and remember, feel pain, and communicate, they also sense gravity, the presence of water, and can feel when an obstruction is in the way of its root system, impeding its growth. A plant’s roots can even shift direction to try to avoid such obstacles.
Plants Learn from Experience, Why Can’t We? Biologist Monica Gagliano from Western Australia presented research that suggested the mimosa pudica plant can learn from experience. Merely suggesting a plant could learn was so controversial that her paper was rejected by 10 scientific journals before it was finally published, but the proof is there for all to see. In addition to creating compounds that are anesthetic to us, you can put a plant ‘out’ using anesthetics traditionally used in major surgeries. They don’t have nerve cells, but they can
even produce neurotransmitters like dopamine and serotonin. These are the neurochemicals of happiness. Plants also even respond to our emotions. Plants react to the thoughts (good or ill) of humans in close proximity and, in the case of humans familiar to them, over a great distance. She proved plants even remember information longer than bees do. Plants have problem-solving ability, and remember stressful events, but they also exemplify an inter-connectivity with a surprisingly complex range of electrical activity and rhythms. They might even be able to predict when earthquakes are imminent. Trees may work with the earth as a dynamic body to communicate any number of important pieces of data.
The Intelligence of Plant Immunity Taking all this into account, how can we ignore scientific work which suggests that biotech chemicals harm a plant’s immune system? (The shikimate pathway is involved with the plant’s synthesis of certain amino acids and is adversely affected by herbicides like Round Up). It is, after all incredibly similar to how our own immune system works. An initial experience with insects or bacteria can help plants defend themselves better in future attacks by the same predator. So while a mustard plant might not respond the first time it encounters a hungry caterpillar, the next time it will up the concentration of defense chemicals in its system that turn its once-delicious leaves into an unsavory, toxic meal. University of Missouri scientists call this ‘priming,’ but it is just one of many hundred plant intelligence phenomenon we are just beginning to understand. If a plant responds to vibrations would it not respond to weed inducing mono-cropping and copious use of pesticides and herbicides? “We can imagine applications of this where plants could be treated with sound or genetically engineered to respond to certain sounds that would be useful for agriculture,” said study author and biologist Heidi Appel. Yet again scientists are eager to tinker with something that is already much more sophisticated than they even know. Plants Grow in Alignment with Fibonacci Code, Divine Geometry Furthermore, plant growth is governed by the Fibonacci sequence. This is a form of divine geometry.

From heartbreak to soulbreak “Man must face the perils of worldly passion if he is to secure the precious pearl of Enlightenment. He must first be lost among the mountainous crags of egoism and selfishness, before there will awaken in him the desire to find a path that will lead him to Enlightenment.” — Buddha
By Gary ‘Z’ McGee www.WakingTimes.com
ndividuation? Self-actualization? Satori? Nirvana? Zazen? Enlightenment? It all seems so serene and peaceful, so smooth and effortless, so tranquil and full of light. But it’s not gentle and sweet. It’s jagged and elusive. It’s not artificially blissful; it’s authentically painful. It’s not pretend-forgiving; it’s ruthlessly absolving. Indeed. Some brutally hard shit must hit some unpleasantly fast fans before you can even think about placing a single toe on the Path toward Providence. Too heavy of a colloquialism for you? Okay, try this: before you can experience the stillness on the tip of the iceberg of illumination, you must first have reconciled the hidden iceberg of annihilation. Too cryptic for you? Fair enough… Here it is, plain and simple: It has to hurt first. In a word: heartbreak. First your ego’s heart has to break, then your soul’s heart has to break. You need to go through a meta-ton of pain: mental, physical and spiritual –soulcaliber pain, tantamount to existential proportions, far exceeding the trivial pain of the hyper real plane. Then, and only then, may you proceed along the Path. But remember, the pain doesn’t end there. Many a Buddha will pop up along the way trying to convince you that you’ve made it –that you’ve achieved the spiritual Mecca, that you’ve earned the elusive Philosopher’s Stone, that you’ve secured the sharp-as-god Golden Ratio, that you’ve merited the Sacred Phi of enlightenment. But you haven’t. And you should do as Linji Yixuan suggested, “If you meet the Buddha on the road, kill him.” Indeed. The journey must remain the thing.
Heartbreak is the end of innocence; the realization that this world does not belong to you, but that you belong to it. It’s when the independent blood in your veins recalibrates into interdependent lifeblood, and the earth in your bones rectifies its posture as a force of nature first and a human second, that you understand yourself as the world and the world as yourself. It hurts because it’s the end of unreasonable expectation. It’s an embracing of the cosmic joke, and the irrefutable fact that you’re the butt-end of it. But like the Dread Pirate Roberts tells the princess in The Princess Bride, “Life is pain, Highness. Anyone who says differently is selling something.” This is authentic heartbreak, precise heartbreak. Not pretend sorrow or fairytale anguish, nor whiney, all-the-world-please-pityme, unrequited romantic love- but the genuine death of your innocence, the warm-blooded murder of your naïveté. It’s discovering within you that which is the closest thing to immortality that a mortal can achieve. As Pema Chodron said, “Only to the extent that we can expose ourselves over and over to annihilation can that which is indestructible in us be found.” True heartbreak is annihilation. It’s ego-death. It’s the birth-death-rebirth cycle spiraling out inside you. It’s your caterpillar-self dissolving into vital butterfly-self components within the cocoon of your spirit. What comes out the other side is your budding soul, nascent and ready to flourish, but still reeking of ego residue. Everything is turned upside down. The basket you once held all your eggs in has been shredded into tatters, sprinkled over the sticky white and yellow yoke of your beliefs. Your worldview lies shattered and broken at your feet, like as if your higher self dropped the glass globe of your ego onto the unforgiving concrete of Truth. Your heart is broken, wide open; a crack so big the only thing that can fit into it is the entire universe. And so it does.
True heartbreak is annihilation. It’s ego-death. It’s the birthdeath-rebirth cycle spiraling out inside you.
“Suddenly you’re ripped into being alive. And life is pain, and life is suffering, and life is horror, but my god you’re alive and it’s spectacular.” — Joseph Campbell

ppropriately titled, “Look up - Wake Up” — the Global Chemtrail Summit happening in Vancouver this May 7th, this free event is long in coming. The wide spread global geoengineering that’s been happening all around us for so long has always been one of our prime motivators at the New Agora, and we’re excited to be sponsoring this important event. I’ve titled my editorial to reflect the curiosity I feel towards this topic of topics, not whereas the nefarious doings of those loonies perpetrating these crimes against all of Life are concerned, but rather what it demonstrates about the present condition of mankind’s awareness, lack thereof, and potential for change. Perhaps it really is wake up and then look up. This is a question I’ve been asking myself for quite a while. Of course, in part, I’m referring to those ugly artificial ‘clouds’ occluding the blue sky, the Sun itself and most people walking the Earth. Anytime I feel like being amazed at awareness itself all I have to do is chat with any ‘conventional’ people about what they can’t seem to perceive, literally for the life of them. Hard to miss these monstrous swaths polluting our skies and lives, if you ask me, even though, often enough, they cover THE ENTIRE SKY. For heavens sake, I’ve got family members who will to this day laugh in my face at my merely suggesting the possibility that something strange is actually going on. Of course they’ve got to get beyond their selfish interests first, which is a fairly sizeable obstacle almost none seems to have the energy left from their work (toil and taxed life force) with which to notice the world they actually inhabit. Is it really that hard to look up and see them spraying their unnatural and obviously artificial, chemical shite over our heads? I guess so. I’ve personally been in the business of exclaiming this insanity to all those around me for literally decades. Between the rampant geoengineering polluting our beautiful home and the mad radiations seemingly surrounding us, and poisons galore in our foods and water, Lorenzo the publisher and I knew we had to do our very best to counter it all with awareness and action, hence the birth of the New Agora. I truly remain amazed at my fellow humans’ incredible ability to remain in utter denial of the very
Look Up! Wake Up!
Does this look like Theory to You?! reality encompassing them. Certainly it took me a moment to notice the regularity of the sky trails staining the beauty of our blue sky; but it was only a moment. Eventually I came to, as my senses (awareness, intelligence, instinct, intuition, imagination, reason) combined with simple study and observation, mixed with that much lauded ‘magical elixir’ and antidote (one hopes) to stupidity and ignorance, one easily available to every last one of us, one that’s difficult to avoid even when you’re trying, that wondrous transformer called experience) made some ‘sense’ of what I was seeing almost everyday. Where was that cerulean blue sky that never failed to fill me with joy? Why did the Sun’s light become white and cold and change so in
quality when covered precisely around the same hours around sunset and sunrise? What’s the heck is going on? What I did know without a doubt from every fibre of my being was that this was not a natural event and that something quite alarming was occurring and is still occurring. The crazies were actually expanding their madness to fill up the entire World. What hubris! Certainly children born after a certain year can be somewhat excused for not having known any different world, at least for the first little while; but then all bets are off, so to speak, even for them, as they eventually must make the choice to either willingly join their societies’ insanity, keeping their heads firmly jammed up, or down, where it’s been
forced throughout all the years of their indoctrination (this is an indoctrination intended to force the perception of the shitty reality of slavery and homicidal egotism prepared for them by their ‘betters’ to the exclusion of all other possibilities), or to actually get off their knees after realizing they’ve been lied to about more or less everything and maybe kick a little ass. The older generations have no such excuse and aught to collectively and personally feel somewhat ashamed of themselves, in my opinion, for having allowed this situation to continue for so long and for helping to perpetuate all the anti-human systems of ‘governance’ plaguing the human race and predating on its consciousness. In their defence they were screwed as kids too, and it’s never too late to help. And so I chat with folks and marvel at their ability to perceive that which they choose to, despite all the evidence to the contrary, willfully blinding themselves from what literally at times blankets their entire reality! Amazing! What else has their entrained beliefs blinded them to I wonder? Isn’t consciousness a curious and mysterious affair? I enjoy, dare I say even revel in the absolute proof positive this conundrum demonstrates, first of some of the features and truth(s) about Awareness which I’ll happily continue to share in a moment; secondly of what it implies about our capacity to transmogrify our very existence and reality; and thirdly how to go about using those same features to liberate Life. After all, if we can transform our lives from one of perpetual slavery to one of endless wonder, mystery and freedom: why wouldn’t we want to? These simple words, the ideas behind them and the power they inspire in our indomitable spirits are enough to catapult one into a life of delight and exciting adventure, where even the so-called greatest of socalled tyrants are only there for one’s fun and enjoyment. Go figure! In fact I dare say that exactly why they are there: as The All of Everything’s way of helping us towards our own fabulousness. What on earth am I talking about? Allow me to elucidate briefly as best I can within the parameters of this format. Here we go: Slavery is presently the undeniable state of mankind; it’s imposed and artificial and really no fun at all, for most that

eeling trapped on the corporate ladder? You’re not alone… our work culture has become uncaring, toxic and rather dangerous to our well-being. Everybody seems to be working harder and harder these days, but genuinely happy people are hard to come by, even amongst those who actually have decent jobs. The truth is, very few people are fit and able to succeed under the current status quo of living to work, and more of us than ever are slipping behind in a corporate culture that is becoming increasingly toxic and impossible to endure. Suspended in ‘survival mode,’ the individual is really not doing well in this environment. But, corporations are doing well, and have grown to have an enormous impact on our lives, even affecting how we educate our children, programming them with the ambition to grow up to become human resources just like everyone else. Our society hasn’t always been so dominated by the corporate model, as it is today, though. In just the last 150 years or so, the corporation has become more pervasive and influential than the church and most political parties have ever been. Now, human relationships, commerce, and organized human endeavour are monopolized under the corporate model, making financial profit, rather than truer virtues, the primary driver of the vast bulk of daily human activity.
Is dedication to the corporate work model serving us well? So many people hate their jobs and work only for the weekends… then they go nuts in 48-hour orgies of convenience and excess in order to ferociously attempt to reclaim their lives for themselves. Were human beings meant to live this way?
Signs Corporate Work Culture
Has Bedome Toxic to the Human Spirit
Who feels it knows it, and in order for the world to change, individuals must first have good reason to love their own lives. The corporate work trap is
holding far too many good people in bondage, sidelining them from being change-makers in a needy world.
Here are 3 signs the corporate work culture has become toxic to the human spirit and that it must be abandoned.
The culture of over-work and overcompetition is driving us crazy and turning us against each other. Entry into the corporate worker-bee culture is about being selected, and the education system grooms children and young adults to
work for and think in terms of being evaluated, tested, judged and ranked against friends and peers who are subdivided by age, gender and aptitude. The aim is to be chosen, so early on we are taught to be selectable. We learn to follow the leader, follow the rules, fall in line, and to do our best to be the best at whatever else everyone else is doing. In order to prosper in the corporate work scene, value must be proven, again and again, and the sense of urgent competition never stops. To make ourselves always available for this level of participation, we’ve been programmed to sacrifice our most valuable asset, time. The important roles in life, such as caregiving to the young and old (those who don’t work), are snowed under, giving us less and less room to be human and throwing us further and further out of alignment with the natural rhythms of life. “Bad work culture is everyone’s problem, for men just as much as for women. It’s a problem for working parents, not just working mothers. For working children who need time to take care of their own parents, not just working daughters. For anyone who does not have the luxury of a full-time lead parent or caregiver at home.” [Anne-Marie Slaughter] http://www.nytimes.com/2015/09/20/ opinion/sunday/a-toxic-work-world.html
The corporate work culture is socially engineering us to conform to a wasteful, meaningless consumer lifestyle. We are several generations deep into the greatest mass social engineering project ever initiated against human beings. A true and vast global cultural revolution, enforced on us with mis-education, brainwashing, peerpressure, propaganda, economics, regulations, ordinances, laws, and the seizure of personal time, our culture has been deliberately transformed into a consumer wasteland by the empires of media, advertising and business. Colonized by television and mass media, the modern mind has been weaned on the illusion that happiness is external and can be purchased. Kept as far as possible from personal development and spiritual growth, we are now expected to be total consumers of media and of ‘stuff’, always in pursuit of endless growth and instant gratification. “We’ve been led into a culture that has been engineered to leave us tired, hungry for indulgence, willing to pay a lot for convenience and entertainment, and most importantly, vaguely dissatisfied with our lives so that we continue wanting things we don’t have. We buy so much because it always seems like something is still missing. Western economies, particularly that of the United States, have been built in a very calculated manner on gratification, addiction, and unnecessary spending. We spend to cheer ourselves up, to reward ourselves, to celebrate,

Spring into Health With Natures Bounty By Yarrow Willard Cl.H.
ver the next few months life is unfurling its leaves and reaching out for the sun after its long winter’s rest. With this burst of solar medicine comes a renewed source of energy and drive in both us and the world around us. This natural regeneration of life makes it the opportune time of year to work on ourselves and to start new health-building practices. Traditionally, in the early spring, people would be breaking their winter fast by grazing on the young shoots and fresh greens as they started to become available. Many of these first plants that come up naturally stimulate our body’s cleansing mechanisms. Specifically the liver and eliminatory channels, helping to shed the accumulation of toxins and stagnation we’ve built up over the winter season. In the modern age even though we have the ability to add wild plants to our diet, for the most part we choose our foods from the convenience of our inherent ecosystem: urbanized society, and that which is available in our local grocery stores, cafes, and restaurants. This “leafs” us with the predicament of being once removed from what the natural rhythm the world is trying to educate our bod-
ies with. If we are to be on the “growing edge” of a healthy life path, ideally we will take reference to what nature is offering as the seasons shift and mimic this to the best of our abilities. It is all too common for us to fall into what is comfortable and convenient within our sociological structure. This often ingrained safety/survival mechanism will never be conducive to creating the best health, vitality or reality we are capable of. If we want to create lasting health now and in the future, we are required to take action and seek out the best ‘upgrades’ available to us in each moment. When the price of food becomes our stumbling block, time is always the other option. Slow cooking methods, wild harvesting and growing food have always been inexpensive ways of creating great healthy food choices. One of my favourite recommendations for strengthening our body-wisdom is to, as often as possible, to get out into natural places and to start nibbling on small amounts of the plants that are non-toxic. Even if some of these plants are not necessarily considered edibles, give them a sniff, a feel and a little

He attended a debate organized in Belgrade, the capital of Serbia, on this topic. He states that hemp or cannabis oil can cure a vast variety of serious health issues, like diabetes, arteriosclerosis, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, asthma, psoriasis, as well as some of the deadliest forms of cancer. Rick recounted his story to the Serbian magazine Telegraph: “I always tell people – Cannabis will cure you, and you will see that at present, it is the best cure there is in the world!” He began his story: “It was 2002. The doctors had given up on me because I’d had more than one unsuccessful operation on three pigmented lesions on my face’s skin. As soon as these were
removed, they would reappear even more infected! Since I had been studying plants as a hobby for years, one day as I was looking at my wounds in the mirror, I remembered a study from the University of Virginia that said that THC, an active component of cannabis could cure cancer. I took some cannabis oil I had prepared beforehand from the cabinet and dripped a few drops directly on the wound.” No significant results could be noticed at first. He bandaged his wounds again after applying the oil and waited for few days. Then, he went on: “After four days I removed the bandages and I couldn’t believe my eyes! The wound was no longer there, and my skin was regenerated! I immediately started talking to people about how I had cured skin cancer with cannabis oil… Everyone laughed at me,
but then eleven and a half years have passed, and the cancer still hasn’t returned.” From then on, Simpson decided to help people in need for this cure, and his work resulted in thousands of cases effectively solved. His last case was an 80-year-old man who was dying from lung cancer. “The man was all swollen from chemotherapy, open wounds on his legs and was barely breathing! After the doctors had given him no more than 48 hours, his son brought him to me. As I had recommended cannabis oil therapy, the young man had also consulted his father’s doctor. The doctor, of course, rejected such treatment, so in the end the young man took the oil from me, soaked a small cracker in it and gave it to his father.” In less than thirty minutes, the old man finally started breathing normally again and his breathing completely stabilized during the night. “Although the doctors “explained” that before death, his vital functions would return briefly, his son didn’t want to wait any longer so he checked his father out of the hospital
the next morning. He also stopped all of his father’s prescribed therapy. After six weeks of cannabis oil treatment, the old man no longer needed insulin, and after three months he was completely cured from cancer,” says Rick. Moreover, he stated that cannabis oil therapy is equally effective in all cases, for it knows no age limit. It can even be given to babies. In order to supply fresh raw ingredients for his hemp oil, Rick soon started growing marijuana, but his field was raided four times in three years by the police. People who publicly claim to cure cancer are threatened 5-40-year imprisonment, according to laws in North America. So, Rick was imprisoned for four days in Canada in 2005, for cultivating, owning and selling marijuana. However, at one point he was liable for 12 year imprisonment. He was fined 2,000 dollars. “The worst of all was that the jurors were people whose dearest I had cured with cannabis oil. Even the judge knew it was all a farce! At one point he even told me that I should be rewarded, instead of tried! All knew, and no one could do anything! They didn’t even allow ten patients I have cured to testify! They also didn’t allow the doctors to come out on the bench, nor me to show a

octors told her to prepare to die, but she took cannabis oil instead. It was 2009 when Canadian Cheryl Pearson was misdiagnosed by the Canadian medical system with multiple sclerosis (MS), and for the following four years, she believed MS was the reason behind her rapidly declining health and the loss of use of some bodily functions. Her doctors were dead wrong as it turned out, and in 2013, she was told she didn’t have MS at all, but, unfortunately something much worse. She was dying from stage 4 ovarian cancer. Told she would survive until December of 2013, her “end of life date,” she resigned herself to conventional cancer treatments as her only hope. Frustrated by her doctors’ lack of ability to help his mother, Cheryl’s son Justin, an honour roll student at George Elliot Secondary, made the decision to pursue medicine as a career in order to help save his mother, and he urged her to keep fighting until a cure could be developed. “You feel like doctors should be able to provide the best to heal that person. In my mind that was when I made the decision that medicine was what I wanted to get into.” — Justin Pearson As Cheryl prepared herself for a doubledose treatment of chemotherapy in 2013, a last-ditch effort by her oncologists, her husband began the process of obtaining legal medical cannabis as an alternative treatment, an option available to them under proper legal protocol. Cheryl, however, had never even smoked pot before, so the main problem was convincing a woman who thought of cannabis as street drug for criminals, or something of the like, to take the treatment. “My wife is dead set against cannabis, doing something that she grew up to believe is

The Pearson family. criminal.”
– Chris Pearson A meeting with the head pharmacist for the Canadian Cancer Society convinced her that cannabis was a responsible option and that the science behind it was rather quite convincing. “When I asked if it would work, he said there are no clinical trials but he advised us that three of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies had applied for patents for synthetic forms of this specifically for the treatment of cancer, so there is obviously something to the concept.” – Chris Pearson Her husband was able to convince her with information from additional friends who advised her of the work of Canadian Rick Simspon, known throughout the world for his pioneering work in the use of cannabis oil extracts to cure cancer and other chronic and terminal conditions. Simpson uses nothing more than a natural home remedy, cannabis oil.
It turns out Cheryl had an allergic reaction to her chemotherapy drugs, and her doctors were convinced all hope was lost. They told her and her family to prepare themselves for her imminent death, but with the will to live, an abundance of hope, and cannabis oil, she is still alive today. After only five weeks of nothing but cannabis oil supplements, the family received a call from her oncologist with information about a current CT scan that had shown a ‘dramatic improvement’ in her liver, and a 25% reduction in her tumours. She went in for surgery to have the tumours removed, but as her husband noted in an interview: “Both tumours were completely dead when they ran them through tests.” — Chris Pearson Three months after her supposed “end of life date,” in March of 2014, she was officially in remission, and she feels certain that cannabis oil saved her life. “I guess I never would have believed it— the results I saw from this plant… Initially I only thought you could smoke it and I was not going that route. I didn’t have the knowledge. I was just thinking it was a puff of smoke and if I have cancer I’m not going to add to it.” — Cheryl Pearson The importance of sharing stories like
this cannot be understated. Especially so at a time when cancer rates worldwide are on the rise and the cancer industry works feverishly to confuse people about the real causes and the real practical cures for cancer. Celebrity stoner Tommy Chong also cured himself of cancer in recent years with the use of cannabis oil, and while cannabis may not be the best option for everyone suffering from cancer, cannabis as a medicine for many conditions is the future of natural health, and no longer can the medical establishment keep a lid on this wonderful medicine. Take a look at this eye-opening documentary about Rick Simpson’s cure, and please share this enlightening information far and wide.

esla said it. Einstein Agreed. Science proved it. It is a known fact that everything—including our own bodies—is made up of energy vibrating at different frequencies. That being said, can sound frequencies affect us? They sure can. Frequencies affect frequencies; much like mixing ingredients with other ingredients affects the overall flavour of a meal. The way frequencies affect the physical world has been demonstrated through various experiments such as the science of Cymatics and water memory. The science of Cymatics illustrates that when sound frequencies move through a particular medium such as water, air or sand, it directly alters the vibration of matter. Below are pictures demonstrating how particles adjust to different frequencies.
https://youtu.be/AS67HA4YMCs Water memory also illustrates how our own intentions can even alter the material world. This has been demonstrated by Dr. Masaru Emoto, who has performed studies showing how simple intentions through sound, emotions and thoughts can dramatically shape the way water crystallizes. Watch video here: http://humansarefree.com/2010/12/fascinating-movie-spans-globe-to-reveal.html) “If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” – Nikola Tesla “What we have called matter is energy, whose vibration has been so lowered as to be perceptible to the senses. There is no matter.” – Albert Einstein We all hold a certain vibrational frequency, not to mention our bodies are estimated to be about 70% water… so we can probably expect that musical frequencies can alter our own vibrational state. Some may call this
Solid Reasons Why You Should
Convert Your Music To 432 Hz
‘pseudoscience,’ however the science and patterns shown above don’t lie. Every expression through sound, emotion or thought holds a specific frequency which influences everything around it — much like a single drop of water can create a larger ripple effect in a large body of water.
Music Frequency With this concept in mind, let us bring our attention to the frequency of the music we listen to. Most music worldwide has been tuned to A=440 Hz since the International Standards Organization (ISO) promoted it in 1953. However, studies regarding the vibratory nature of the universe indicate that this pitch is disharmonious with the natural resonance of
nature and may generate negative effects on human behaviour and consciousness. Certain theories even suggest that the nazi regime has been in favour of adopting this pitch as standard after conducting scientific researches to determine which range of frequencies best induce fear and aggression. Whether or not the conspiracy is factual, interesting studies and observations have pointed towards the benefits of tuning music to A=432 Hz instead. 432 Hz is said to be mathematically consistent with the patterns of the universe. Studies reveal that 432 hz tuning vibrates with the universe’s golden mean PHI and unifies the properties of light, time, space, matter, gravity and magnetism with biology, the DNA code and consciousness.
When our atoms and DNA start to resonate in harmony with the spiralling pattern of nature, our sense of connection to nature is said to be magnified. The number 432 is also reflected in ratios of the Sun, Earth, and the moon as well as the precession of the equinoxes, the Great Pyramid of Egypt, Stonehenge, the Sri Yantra among many other sacred sites. “From my own observations, some of the harmonic overtone partials of A=432 Hz 12T5 appear to line up to natural patterns and also the resonance of solitons. Solitons need a specific range to form into the realm of density and span from the micro to the macro cosmos. Solitons are not only found in water mechanics, but also in the ion-acoustic breath between electrons and protons.” – Brian T. Collins Another interesting factor to consider is that the A=432 Hz tuning correlates with the colour spectrum while the A=440 Hz is off.
“The Solar Spectrum and The Cosmic Keyboard: All of the frequencies in the spectrum are related in octaves, from gamma rays to subharmonics. These colours and notes are also related to our Chakras and other important energy centres. If we are to understand that (...) Chakras are connected to the Seven Rays of the Solar Spectrum, then the notes and frequencies we use for the same should be the same. A432 Hz is the tuning of the Cosmic Keyboard or Cosmic Pitchfork, as opposed to the A440 Hz modern ‘standard.’ It places C# at 136.10 Hz ‘Om,’ which is the main note of the Sitar in classical Indian music and the pitch of the chants of the Tibetan monks, who tell us ‘It comes from nature.’” – Dameon Keller Let’s explore the experiential difference between A=440 Hz and A=432 Hz. The noticeable difference music lovers and musicians

ccording to an article on the website of ‘Radio Free Europe’, a nondescript modern 4-storey building on Savushkina Street, St. Petersburg, houses the innocuously titled ‘Internet Research Centre’. Inside the building operate government controlled and tasked teams of professional ‘trolls’. Spread across approximately 40 rooms, the trolls prowl the Internet in 12 hour shifts, generating proKremlin comments and ‘gaming’ Internet forums and online conversations. St. Petersburg blogger Marat Burkhard recently came forward to describe the apparent covert activities in detail. Burkhard describes his co-workers as “politically illiterate young people” who must be briefed on current topics at the beginning of each shift and continually supervised. At this point it would be pertinent to note the source of the article – Radio Free Europe – notoriously a CIA funded propaganda outlet for decades (now financed, more obtrusively, through the State Department and ‘private donors’). While only the congenitally naive would doubt the veracity of the article’s basic claims, what is (unsurprisingly) lacking is context.

Social Media in the 21st Century
estimated that the entire Russian security establishment currently operates with just one twentieth (1/20) of the US equivalent (not even including the UK and other close Western allies). What that means, in a nutshell, is that for every Internet Research Centre in Russia, the CIA/NSA/GCHQ/private contractor nexus would be operating the equivalent of (at least) 20 such centres. Flooding the social media networks, news and other sites of their domestic populations with thousands upon thousands of comments, posts, disruption, disinformation and propaganda bullets every day. Salvos in an escalating, but largely unseen, ‘Information War’. Furthermore, recent reports cite the development of software that actually
scours the web, automatically switching between user names/ identities and generating propaganda, provocations and automated comments as it goes. Coupled with Google’s recent announcement of A.I. software that can discern (Google’s version of) ‘the truth’, it doesn’t take much imagination to envisage any online expression of ‘untruth’, ‘heresy’ or ‘dissent’ being automatically swamped beneath a torrent of managed obscurity, cyber-troll bile, distraction and chicanery. Seismically underreported, similar allegations about the ‘troll farms’ or ‘web brigades’ of the West (such as GCHQ’s ‘77th Brigade’) have barely surfaced in the blinding mass of ‘Snowden Revelations’. Chilling images (reportedly leaked from internal GCHQ presentations) document operations in ‘virtual communities’, ‘social identity theory’, ‘herding’, ‘mimicry’ and the ‘psychology of deception’. Much of the language used seems best suited to neutralizing dissent and activism in the ‘target’ (domestic) populations (and not the lame-duck excuse of ‘fighting terror-
ism’). As an astounding amount of human activity and intercourse migrates online, public spaces empty and forums/social media fill with a new species – homo digitalis – a being safely cubicled and shepherded into approved opinions, paradigms and navel gazing. Accordingly, corporations now view social media and online social networks as their plaything and happy-huntingground – each ‘like’, ‘trend’, ‘tweet’ and online action the precious raw material to map, direct and monetize consumer behaviour. Edward Bernays (pioneer marketeer, nephew of Sigmund Freud and author of the seminal text Propaganda) could hardly have dreamed of the marketing, perception management and social engineering possibilities now available at the press of a few attractive and endorphin-stimulating keystrokes. Today’s brave new keyboard-warrior looks an awful lot like yesterday’s plantation indentured servant or herd of cattle (in sleek, Apple designed ergonomic garb). A plethora of research (let alone common sense) suggests that our reliance/addiction to social media and its associated devices is already having a profoundly deleterious effect on basic cognitive skills, human interaction, attention spans and functional intelligence. Factor in a cocktail of narcissistic personality disorders and body dysmorphic disorders (with a chaser of smartphones and other hand-held devices) and humankind looks at last set to plunge over the precipice of unfathomable stupidity.

Society’s Declining IQ Linked To Early Chemical Exposure In Children, New Research Finds by Julie Wilson
arly exposure to toxins in infants and young children not only affects their individual growth, but society as a whole, according to Dr. Bruce Lanphear, a health scientist with Simon Fraser University, who coproduced a video elaborating on the subject. The video (https://youtu.be/E6KoMAbz1Bw) entitled “Little Things Matter: The Impact of Toxins on the Developing Brain,” was unveiled at conference at the University of Ottawa, November 20-21, illustrating the impacts of toxins on children and highlighting the fact that even low levels of chemicals can cause irreversible damage to the brain and hinder neurological development. An expert in his field, Lanphear was named the principal investigator for his most recent study examining fetal and early childhood exposures to prevalent environmental neurotoxins such as lead, pesticides, mercury, alcohol, PCB’s and environmental tobacco smoke. Flame retardant chemicals prone to leaching into environment, exposing people The project just received additional funding allowing Lanphear to study children from the original birth cohort to five years of age, analyzing the effectiveness lead hazard controls have on children’s blood, lead levels
and their risk for developing learning and behavioural problems. In “Little Things Matter,” Lanphear explains that chemicals are biologically active even at low levels, in some cases affecting children’s IQ. PBDEs, or flame retardant chemicals, aren’t chemically bound to plastics, foam or fabrics, in which they’re used, making them susceptible to leaching, exposing people and the environment. Lower IQs directly correlated to early chemical exposure in children The average IQ score for children ranges from about 85 to 115, while only 2.5 percent of kids (or 6 million), have an IQ of 130 or above, which is considered “gifted.” On the other end of the distribution, another 2.5 percent have an IQ below 70, which is considered “challenged.” Studies show that when the body burden of PBDEs increases in pregnant women, their child’s intellectual ability decreases. When PBDE levels increase from 10 parts per billion (PPB) to 100 ppb, a child’s IQ decreases by 5 points. A similar pattern occurs when children are exposed to organophosphate pesticides early in life. Lead, which is found in 100 percent of children’s blood, causes similar damage. As the level of lead in children’s blood increases from zero to 100 ppb, IQs drop about 6 points. IQs drop another 2 points when lead levels increase from 100 ppb to 200 ppb, and
decrease 1 more point when they reach 300 ppb. A 5-point drop in IQ caused by lead exposure results in a 57 percent increase in the number of children that are considered challenged, increasing from 6 million to 9.4 million. The number of gifted children drops from 6 million to 2.4 million. “There is strong evidence that learning disabilities and lower IQ scores can be attributed to extremely low levels of exposure to toxic metals like lead and mercury, persistent toxins such as polychlorinated biphenyl (PCBs), and other toxins including organophosphate (OP) pesticides and compounds used as flame-retardants. These toxins are common in our daily environments,” says Lanphear. “Children are exposed to many toxins and dozens of untested chemicals all the time. These chemicals can be biologically active at very low levels. We can no longer ignore the impact toxins have on the developing brain and children’s ability to learn.” Learn more: http://www.naturalnews.com/052755_childrens_IQ_chemical_exposure_declining_cognitive_function. html#ixzz43rKtRfgS
Reducing your exposure to toxins Companies in the U.S. and Canada add toxicants to consumer products, releasing them
into the environment before testing for their toxic effects, explains Lanphear, adding that stricter regulations must be enforced to protect our kids. For example, the European Union requires chemicals be proven nontoxic before allowing them to enter the market. There are many things you can do individually to keep your kids safe, including eating organic food, avoiding use of pesticides around your home, checking for lead hazards and constant cleaning of floors and surfaces to remove unwanted chemical particles.

No matter where we live on our planet, we can create a masterpiece. By Phillip J. Watt
umanity has lost its connection to nature. We’re so bombarded with artificial imagery and superficial living that we think that taking in the sunset or going for a bush-walk is all it means to unite with our mother earth. These practices are in and of themselves a great experience, however they don’t truly represent the holistic way in which we should be connecting to the spirit of the natural world and the life that it breathes. We have disconnected from our food. We have forgotten the cycles of natural systems. We are blind to the divine patterns found in nature. We hardly recognize the innate wisdom of knowing our environment like the back of our heart. The urbanization Phillip J Watt of civilization is partly the cause. Living in a cement jungle on top of each other, as well as the rise of social media, is an ironic twist to being more isolated from each other and our environment. The reality is, the way in which we should be engaging with our local community has been inhibited by the organizational systems that the majority of us subscribe to. And for what? To feed the elite’s unsustainable and destructive economic principle of growth by attending a monotonous job from 9 to
5, one in which the bulk of us don’t even enjoy? Consumerism has harmed our collective and environmental wellbeing. Materialism has eroded our value systems and fuelled a cultural existential crisis. Globalization has polluted our planetary and community health. Industrial agriculture is killing our ecological systems and failing to feed the population of earth. There has to be other ways. Well, there are. One is called permaculture. Permaculture is a practice that provides most of our resources locally, yet it starts with ethics. What is truly
right for our individual, community and environmental health? How can we provide the basic needs of humanity whilst doing it in balance with nature? Then it becomes a design science. Designing permaculture plots includes a process of surveying the local environment, identifying its patterns, decoding the inherent wisdom that it contains, and combining that and other knowledge with technological innovation to efficiently and effectively collaborate with natural systems to provide all the food, medicine, fibre and fuel that we need. This not only ensures that we survive, but psychologically thrive. So in a sense, permaculture is an art. It’s an expression of human ingenuity in its most glorious form because it’s the creation of a painting that reflects the way in which humans and nature become one.
The external world is the canvas, human novelty is the paint and the human heart is the paintbrush. And no matter where we live on our planet, we can create a masterpiece. Permaculture has conclusively shown that it can produce quality and sustainable results in any region on earth. It utilizes the local energy – such as water, solar, soil and biological – in the most productive ways possible. It can generate an abundance of resources in cold, hot, wet, dry, and other challenging conditions. It has conquered the mountains, the plains, the jungle and the desert, without missing a beat. This is exactly why permaculture is a system that can easily feed the entire population of the world. Whilst doing so, it leaves no toxic trace, as it doesn’t require the environmentally damaging oil products that industrial agriculture relies on. It uses natural remedies to deal with the imbalances local to each area, such as flora and fauna pests. Permaculture incorporates the advancements made in sustainable and renewable technologies. But it also honours ancient technologies too, such as natural building materials. For example, housing can be created out of local, inexpensive and sustainable resources. It also integrates communities. Instead of going to a multinational supermarket to get your food, we go to our backyard and it pick it fresh to cook in our own kitchen, or trade for ingredients that our neighbours grow.

Misconceptions Many Never Question
By Makia Freeman
isconceptions take root in our minds very easily. It takes a determined spirit to weed out all the brainwashing and programming we have taken on. Many people never question certain ideas or conceptions they have. They stop at the phrase itself without any further investigation, almost as though the phrase itself has some kind of magic that stops them from examining it. People need to be careful of confusing what is true with what they want to be true. Just because we all want to live in a just world doesn’t mean we actually do live in a just world. Great problems arise when we take our misconceptions and assert them as fact.
Remember what Mohandas Gandhi said, when he was asked what he thought of Western civilization: “I think it would be a very good idea.” With wit and insight, he was clearly pointing out that the West had not yet achieved “civilization”, given that it was still engaged in land and resource theft via colonization, and genocide against active and indigenous peoples. Likewise, how many things in the list below do we proudly hold up as reality, despite the fact we haven’t yet achieved them? Here is a list of 7 massive misconceptions many people possess but have usually never deeply questioned.
Hillary’s tweet about “too big to jail”. Has she looked in the mirror recently? Hard to believe the audacity of these NWO criminals, but then again, they are emotionless
Massive Misconceptions #1: The Rule of Law The rule of law is a hackneyed phrase. It’s one those giant misconceptions usually trotted out by people intent on proving how richer 1st world nations are better than poorer 2nd and 3rd world nations, or how no one can supposedly get away with crime because we are all equal before the law. Yes, I would prefer to live in a society where disputes can be resolved without resorting to gang-style violence. However, even nations with the purported rule of law still have deal with gang problems – and they do this by centralizing power all under one roof, claiming a monopoly on violence and calling it “Government”. When you replace lots of smaller gangs with one bigger gang, it is doubtful you have increased your safety or freedom at all; in fact, in many ways, you have decreased it, since you have created a organization with the power to enslave you on a far grander scale. Remember the words of George Bush Sr. when he first publicly called for a New World Order? He boasted that, “We have before us the opportunity to forge for ourselves and for future generations a New World Order. A world where the rule of law – not the law of the jungle – governs the conduct of nations.” He actually used the phrase rule of law. Given his past as a CIA director, oil profiteer, drug runner, serial rapist and mass murderer, how credible are his claims that the rule of law will result in a fair and just society? Recently in her campaign, career criminal Hillary Clinton made reference to “no one too big to jail” in a tweet that backfired badly, given how egregious it is that she is still walking free (and even running for president) after her countless instances of stealing, cheating, lying, bribing, blackmailing and murdering (via the Clinton body count). How can you possibly have the “rule of law” when the ones administering the law are criminals, outlaws, liars and killers? The fact is that we live in two worlds – one whose members or citizens are punished by not living by the rule of law, and another where the administrators of the law escape punishment because they control the enforcement of the laws. The judicial system is not pure and above the law; it has its own members
who cover up crimes and who are involved in the worldwide pedophilic ring (see whistleblowers Fiona Barrett and David Shurter for more on this). Elections are stolen by rigged machines. The entities and corporations supposed to be controlled and constrained by the “rule of law” are the ones writing the laws! Remember how the banks write the laws? Remember how Big Pharma controls the FDA and CDC?
There Is One Law For The Rich, And One Law For The Rest. Additionally, as Chinese philosopher Lao-Tzu said, the greater the number of laws and enactments, the more thieves and robbers there will be. Many laws today don’t exist to catch the real criminals, but rather act as traps to enslave innocent and harmless people in victimless crimes, by way of revenue extraction (e.g. speeding fines) or imprisonment (e.g. for possessing a plant like cannabis). The rule of law? What a misconception!
Misconceptions #2: The Political Authority of Government Another one of those rather large misconceptions carried around by the average person is that government has the unquestionable authority to rule. However, as I explored in the article Getting the Idea of Government & Political Authority Out of Your Mind, when you look at it closely, the government’s supposed authority or mandate evaporates into thin air. There is no producible piece of paper that you signed called a “social contract”; there is no real consent where there is no real way to opt-out; there is no legal or moral justification for a majority to forcibly impose its views and will on a minority; and lastly, government does not deserve a special moral status just because it provides benefits to some, which we may or may not need and want. Careful examination
of government shows that its purported political authority is built on a house of sand, and has no solid basis. The truth is that government rules by the barrel of a gun, and its authority is utterly illegitimate. (emphasis mine. Ed.)
Misconceptions #3: The Scientific Method Another phrase that gets thrown around like some 3 word argument winner is “the scientific method”. This is often invoked in defense of criminal or even heinous things and activities like prescription drugging of the population, vaccines, GMOs and geoengineering (to stop the imagined manmade global warming non-phenomenon). In even more extreme cases, we have the deployment of science as a weapon to serve crazy schemes, such as eugenics-based programs of surreptitious sterilization and depopulation. Science itself as a discipline is not to blame for this; the issue is those pushing forward dangerous agendas under the rubric of science. Yet, most people will blindly bow down to the white-coated priests of science without any further investigation. How can we trust the scientific method when there is such a massive amount of fraudulent scientific research, as exposed by insiders like former Big Pharma directors, doctors, medical journal editors and other experts? How can we trust the muchpraised scientific hierarchy of evidence when it is so easy to get around the back door by various means of fraud, whether it be outright omission, distortion by changing data sets and many of the other tricks used to change real science into corporate junk science? How can we trust science when it tells us the vaccines saves more hypothetical lives overall, despite the fact they injure, paralyze and kill real people all the time? The doctors of allopathy, or Western Rockefeller medicine, once labored under horrendous misconceptions, such as
Smoke Shop Light it up
Dig deeper and you will discover a core group of individuals (the New World Order) who are coordinating all of this. practicing blood-letting as a medical and surgical technique, and advocating the smoking of tobacco as fine for your health (“Doctors smoke camels”…). Was any of this real science? If not, how do we know that today’s science is any better? Science, although it tries to present itself as a rational force for the advancement of knowledge, often succumbs to the trap of falling into dogma. Science has a hard time distinguishing its facts from its theories. Relativity is a theory. Big Bang is a theory. Maybe good explanations, maybe not, but they will be replaced by better ones as our awareness expands. Science wants its one miracle (e.g. the Big Bang) to explain the world – “just give me one miracle and I’ll explain everything!” It is doubtful whether scientific dogma is any better than religious dogma. Science demands that the world be seen in a certain way – and brands anyone outside of its beliefs as a denier or heretic. Ultimately, how much can we really trust mainstream Western materialistic science when it denies the existence of anything it cannot see and measure? Even Einstein said, “the field is the sole governing agency of the particle.” Consciousness is the very basis of matter and life in the Universe, and yet science in general refuses to even accept its existence …
communism and fascism are all collectivist political ideologies that essentially dictate that all individuals, causes and other loyalties (e.g. family, nation, religion) are subservient to the State. They demand that everyone take part in the “new order”, and that if necessary the individual must be sacrificed for the greater good. In extreme collectivist societies, the State is everything and the individual is nothing – an absurd inversion of reality. (As an interesting aside, collectivism has something in common with Satanism here, in that both invert reality: black is white, war is peace and pain is pleasure.) Collectivism allows for majority rule. A more intelligent and peaceful minority can easily be outvoted and turned upon by an emotional, low-minded majority – which is precisely why the US was set up as republic (with inbuilt projections for individuals) not a democracy. The whole concept of “the greater good” or “the group” is abstract. In reality, there is no such tangible thing as a group. There are only individuals who make up a group. The same goes for the “State”. In reality, there are only people who make up the State. When you elevate the imagined needs of an abstract entity (the “group” or the “State”) above the real needs of its living members, you open the door for all sorts of atrocities. The truth is that only by respecting and enshrining the individual above all else can we achieve the greater good. Remember also that 1 of the 3 most chilling conspiracy documents or accounts ever published (The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion) proclaim how the elders or controllers will enslave the masses through – you guessed it –collectivism. They actually use this term.
Misconceptions #5: We Are Alone
Collectivism is a dangerous idea. Above are the statues of Marx, Engels and Lenin who played a key role in developing communism.
Misconceptions #4: The Greater Good (Collectivism) Next of the list of grand misconceptions is the idea of “the greater good” as it is applied to government, where it is known as collectivism. In small groups, this method often works well, and sometimes the “majority rules” approach is the best. However, when you try to translate that to large societies or nations, you run into problems. At first “the greatest good of the greatest number” seems so obvious and beneficial. However, collectivism prioritizes the group over the individual. Socialism, marxism,
Another of the grand human misconceptions is that we are all alone in the Universe. There’s no other intelligent life out there. We’re it. People who cling to this outdated and incredibly limited idea may want to check out the broad scope of contact, abductee and eyewitness testimony of those who have personally encountered ETs (extraterrestrials) and aliens. Some have endured great trauma but lived to tell the story, while others have had positive experiences, and have even formed ongoing relationships with ETs. Similar stories come in from all over the world, from all sorts of people. We have ancient myths, artwork and cultural stories that describe or depict UFOs and ETs. The human race has already been “contacted” and indeed may even have been “seeded” by ETs. It’s time to get past our egocentricity that we are the only intelligent
species in the Cosmos, and start opening our minds and hearts to greater possibility.
Misconceptions #6: Coincidence Theory The terms conspiracy theory and conspiracy theorist were developed by the CIA in the 1960s as a way to counter genuine examination into the JFK assassination. They are weaponized terms that represent a cunning method to discredit truthseekers, truthtellers and investigators. This diversionary scheme has worked well – people often shut down once they hear this phrase and stop thinking critically. These terms have become falsely associated, in popular culture, with madness, craziness and deluded thinking. Of course, the corollary to the idea of so-called deluded conspiracy theories is that things just happen by chance. Thus, those who deride conspiracy theories, often with little or no investigation, can be labeled coincidence theorists. They adhere to coincidence theory that blindly believes there is no New World Order agenda; events just occur randomly. It is hard for the average person who feels compassion and empathy to understand that psychopaths with a deadened conscience and ability to feel run the world. So, the average person can’t quite believe that anyone could be so evil, diabolical, ruthless or organized to be plotting a world takeover, even though the scheme is quite advanced. This inherent bias in most people works to the great advantage of the New World Order manipulators, who are in essence protected from their crimes by widespread disbelief. As Marshall MacLuhan once said, “Only the small secrets need to be protected. The big ones are kept secret by public incredulity.” Coincidence theory is really a way for people to shield themselves from the ugly truth so they can continue living in denial. Interestingly, it aligns with materialistic and atheistic mainstream science, which insists that life is just a random occurrence and that humanity is nothing special.
Misconceptions #7: Disbelieving the Scope of the Conspiracy Despite the misconceptions of coincidence theorists, there are positive signs. The world is awakening. There are many people working on different fronts to bring down the control grid and create better, fairer and freer systems. People around the world are actively protesting the corporatocracy, toxic vaccines, GMOs, surveillance, smart meters, geoengineering and more. However, there still remains a fundamental block in the way of a deeper understanding. The last misconception on this list is the biggest one: many people still can’t quite grasp the enormity and extent of the worldwide conspiracy. All the manifestations of dysfunction
in our world today – political corruption, radiation, bioterrorism, false flag events, mind control, pedophilia, Satanism – are all fundamentally connected. They are not random and unconnected events. Think GMOs and geoengineering are unrelated – then why does Monsanto hold patents for aluminum-resistant (chemtrails are laden with aluminum) crops? Think false flag shootings, Big Pharma drugging and mind control are unrelated – then why do these patsy shooters have records of taking prescription drugs? Think pedophilia and Satanism are unrelated – then why do various SRA (Satanic Ritual Abuse) survivors give accounts of being at places like Bohemian Grove and either witnessing or being forced to participate in dark sacrificial rituals? We need to connect the dots and sense the deeper connection here. Dig deeper and you will discover a core group of individuals (the New World Order) who are coordinating all of this. Dig deeper and you will discover it is the same NWO individuals engaging in all of it: political manipulation, propaganda dissemination, geoengineering, mind control, sex trafficking, pedophilia, war, genocide, suppression of free energy technology and the Secret Space Program. Dig deeper and you will discover these same NWO individuals summoning and channeling dark forces through these rituals – and being overtaken by them. Dig even deeper and you will discover these dark forces (Archons) – which are nonhuman, non-organic, non-physical entities – resemble something like AI (Artificial Intelligence). They are totally heartless and without compassion; like a parasite, they are trying to suck dry and destroy their host – that’s you and I and the rest of humanity. As best as we can tell at this point in our research, they are the distortion at the source of all the connected and interrelated unconsciousness or evil in our midst. Until we grasp the magnitude of the situation, we will be fighting it on isolated fronts, unlikely to be as effective.
Beware of Misconceptions Misconceptions abound. The faster we can learn to dig beyond a term or phrase, the faster we will learn the truth.

The Most Ignored Part Of What It Means To Do Yoga: The Mainstream Way vs. The Ancient One Photo Crhttp://activehandsyoga.com/thai-yoga-reusi-dat-ton/rdt-1/

but have been largely forgotten today by the Western world.
oga has become an immensely popular form of physical activity and relaxation in recent years. Those who practice it on a regular basis are constantly raving about its physical and mental benefits, and rightfully so. Regular practice can lead to increased strength, flexibility, and focus, and decrease one’s proneness to injury. It also enhances one’s ability to concentrate, among many other benefits. What we don’t often consider, however, are the spiritual teachings that underpin this ancient practice. Yoga is much more than just physical exercise, though this rather reductive understanding makes up the dominant perception of Western society. There is nothing wrong with only engaging in the physical side of yoga, but it’s important to understand its roots and origins in order to not only reap its full benefits, but also afford it the respect it deserves. Indeed, many would argue that one cannot claim to ‘do yoga’ if they are only practicing one aspect of it. This article will discuss a couple of topics that are closely associated with yoga,
The Western Perception of Yoga
tierretaylor.com custom created hats Page 18
The Western perception of yoga is not wrong by any means. As mentioned above, it mainly considers one component of yoga — the physical act of ‘doing yoga’ — without acknowledging the other, equally important aspects of this practice. The Western world was introduced to yoga in the late 1800s, when Swami Vivekananda, an Indian guru and yogic scholar, sparked a wave of Eastern Yogi’s setting up teaching centres in the West. Some of these gurus, like Vivekananda himself, attracted a lot of attention from prominent authors, scientists, and socialites. For example, Nikola Tesla was well aware of ancient concepts and the correlation it had with the science he was working on, using Sanskrit words like “akasha” and “prana” to describe the force and matter that exists all around us; these words come from the Upanishads (a collection of Vedic texts). Not many people know that Tesla had correlations with Swami Vivekananda (1863-1902), who
was one of the most famous and influential spiritual leaders of the philosophies of Vedanta (one of the six schools of Hindu philosophy, the term originally referred to the Upanishads, a collection of philosophical texts in Hinduism) and yoga. He was the chief disciple of Ramakrishna Paramahamsa and the founder of Ramakrishna Math and Ramakrishna Mission. He is a giant figure in the history of the Hindu reform movements. Vivekananda wrote a letter to Tesla in the late 1800s, remarking: Mr. Tesla thinks he can demonstrate mathematically that force and matter are reducible to potential energy. I am to go and see him next week to get this new mathematical demonstration. In that case the Vedantic cosmology will be placed on the surest of foundations. I am working a good deal now upon the cosmology and eschatology of the Vedanta. I clearly see their perfect union with modern science, and the elucidation of the one will be followed by that of the other. (From the Complete Works, VOL. V, Fifth Edition, 1347, p. 77.) There was even a scholarly review of Vivekananda’s published lectures, which ap-
peared in the American Journal of Theology in 1895. Since the introduction of yoga to the Western world, its use has grown exponentially each year. In spite of this growth, however, is still mostly regarded as a physical practice, with its spiritual roots largely ignored or forgotten. Nevertheless, the true purpose of yoga is to achieve states of insightfulness. As I mentioned before, there is nothing wrong with focusing on the physical side of yoga, but it is important to be aware that you are choosing to do so. Actually engaging in yoga in the traditional sense is a much different enterprise.
The True Nature Of Yoga As mentioned above, the true nature of yoga is to achieve states of insightfulness, and this does not necessarily have to be done during the exercise part of it, although it helps and is part of the routine. There is some major energy work going on when practicing these poses, often comprising an opening up of major energy centres in your body, which improves energy flow. One who does not engage in the physical side of yoga can still be said to be practicing it and enjoy these energetic benefits. For example, in the second book of the Yoga Sutras, written by the Indian sage Patanjali about two thousands years ago, 8 paths are described: n Path 1 is Yama: Restraining from harmful behaviour, or cautions on what behaviour to avoid. This includes violence, injury, telling falsehoods, stealing, lasciviousness, and greed. It means, in general, adopting ethical and virtuous behaviour. n Path 2 is Niyama: Developing beneficial

10 Smart Life Hacks to Cut Plastic Out of Your Life
By Alanna Ketler
lastic can be found almost anywhere, even in the most unlikely of places. We have become completely dependent on using plastic for almost all of our packaging needs and the majority of objects we purchase are themselves made out of some form of plastic. By now, many of us are well aware of the devastating toll plastic consumption is taking on our environment and especially our oceans. While efforts are being made to minimize this waste — the majority of us recycle plastic bottles and packaging automatically — the fact of the matter remains, only nine percent of plastic waste in the U.S. ends up being recycled at all. We are working to eliminate or at least drastically reduce our use of plastic bags for groceries, but still up to 12 million barrels of oil are used each year to produce enough plastic bags for the U.S. alone. Fortunately, awareness is spreading, and more and more
that choose to use plastic over more sustainable options, you could also end up with a cool glass jar that can be repurposed into many different things.
4. Use Essential Oils & Diffusers Instead Of Plastic Air Fresheners With increasing evidence to show that store-bought plug-in air fresheners are very toxic to inhale, you may want to switch these out for that reason alone. Add in their inherent wastefulness and the decision becomes easier still. Essential oil diffusers will provide you with subtle smelling aromas that, depending on which oil you choose, can also offer some aroma therapeutic benefits and put you into a state of relaxation, calm, and peace.
for that cute jar in your pantry. Look at you — saving the environment while staying organized!
9. Make Your Own Juice & Other Beverages Not only are most store-bought juices just as harmful to your health as sodas, they
also contribute significantly to the plastic waste problem we currently face. Why not make your own fresh juices and maximize the nutritional qualities your delicious fresh fruits and vegetables have to offer?
See “CUT PLASTIC” on page 30
5. Use Reusable Containers Instead Of Plastic Wrap & Ziploc Bags Use reusable glass containers instead of Ziploc bags for leftovers and lunches. If need be, paper bags are also a much better alternative, as they can easily biodegrade. A reusable alternative to plastic wrap, made of beeswax and cotton, is another great option.
6. Switch To Reusable Bags For Your Produce While nowadays we often remember our reusable grocery bags when heading to the store, we may not often think of the plastic bags our produce goes into. Luckily, there are many reusable alternatives available, or you could even just avoid the bag altogether — it isn’t entirely necessary, after all. people are putting these best practices into action, incorporating things like reusable water bottles, coffee cups, and grocery bags into their daily lives. The question then becomes, how can we take this initiative even further and really make a difference on the planet? Below are 10 simple life hacks to significantly cut down your plastic consumption.
1. Replace All Cleaning Supplies With One Natural All-Purpose Alternative Do you have a different cleaner for every surface in your house? Glass, counters, floors, toilets, etc? Many of us do but it is often fairly unnecessary, and the majority of these cleaners could actually be replaced with one all-natural alternative, which can not only save you money and cut down on plastic consumption, but also reduce the amount of chemicals going down the drain and into the air in your home. You can simply buy one bottle of concentrated all-purpose cleaner and mix it with water in an empty spray bottle, or you can check out online for a great homemade alternative.
2. Make Your Own Deodorant When you add up how many containers of deodorant you go through in a lifetime, it becomes clear why it may be a huge bonus to yourself and to the environment to ditch those containers and start making your own. Fortunately, it’s extremely simple! In fact there are a number of personal care products that you can easily make yourself and store in reusable glass containers or mason jars.
3. Purchase Products That Already Come In Glass Containers If there is more than one option of a product you plan to purchase, go for the one that is contained in glass or cardboard. When you do this, not only are you boycotting companies
7. Use Soap Nuts & Baking Soda Instead Of Laundry Detergent Most store-bought laundry detergent that I see comes in big hard plastic jugs or plastic bags. To eliminate this plastic fiasco altogether, consider using soap nuts for your laundry instead. Soap nuts are an all-natural alternative that can keep your clothes clean, and for an added boost of whitening power and freshening, toss in a half a cup of baking soda.
8. Buy W1at You Can In Bulk By Bringing Your Own Reusable Bags Or Jars Reusable bags exist for bulk items as well as for produce, and buying in bulk is both cost effective and economical. You can buy almost all of your dry food items in bulk if you go to a specialty bulk store, which is an even bigger way to cut down your plastic use. You can even bring reusable jars and containers into these stores and have a clerk weigh them beforehand, ensuring you’ll always have just the right amount
Mankind’s Greatest Achievement W Written By Nikola Tesla
hen a child is born its senseorgans are brought in contact with the outer world. The waves of sound, heat, and light beat upon its feeble body, its sensitive nerve fibers quiver, the muscles contract and relax in obedience: a gasp, a breath, and in this act a marvelous little engine, of inconceivable delicacy and complexity of construction, unlike any on earth, is hitched to the wheel-work of the Universe. The little engine labors and grows, performs more and more involved operations, becomes sensitive to ever subtler influences and now there manifests itself in the fully developed being — Man — a desire mysterious, inscrutable and irresistible: to imitate nature, to create, to work himself the wonders he perceives. Inspired in this task he searches, discovers and invents, designs and constructs, and enriches with monuments of beauty, grandeur and awe, the star of his birth. He descends into the bowels of the globe to bring forth its hidden treasures and to unlock its immense imprisoned energies for its use. He invades the dark depths of the ocean and the azure regions of the sky. He peers into the innermost nooks and recesses of molecular structure and lays bare to his gaze worlds infinitely remote. He subdues and puts to his service the fierce, devastating spark of Prometheus, the titanic forces of the waterfall, the wind and the tide. He tames the thundering bolt of Jove and annihilates time and space. He makes the great Sun itself his obedient toiling slave. Such is the power and might that the heavens reverberate and the whole earth trembles by the mere sound of his voice. What has the future in store for this strange being, born of a breath, of perishable tissue, yet immortal, with his powers fearful and divine? What magic will be wrought by him in the end? What is to be his greatest
deed, his crowning achievement? Long ago he recognized that all perceptible matter comes from a primary substance, of a tenuity (lack of solidity or substance; thinness. Ed.) beyond conception and filling all space - the Akasa or luminiferous ether - which is acted upon by the life-giving Prana or creative force, calling into existence, in never ending cycles, all things and phenomena. The primary substance, thrown into infinitesimal whirls of prodigious velocity, becomes gross matter; the force subsiding, the motion ceases and matter disappears, reverting to the primary substance. Can Man control this grandest, most aweinspiring of all processes in nature? Can he harness her inexhaustible energies to perform all their functions at his bidding, more still — can he so refine his means of control as to put them in operation simply by the force of his will? If he could do this he would have powers almost unlimited and supernatural. At his command, with but a slight effort on his part, old worlds would disappear and new ones of his planning would spring into being. He could fix, solidify and preserve the ethereal shapes of his imagining, the fleeting visions of his dreams. He could express all the creations of his mind, on any scale, in forms concrete and imperishable. He could alter the size of this planet, control its seasons, guide it along any path he might choose through the depths of the Universe. He could make planets collide and produce his suns and stars, his heat and light. He could originate and develop life in all its infinite forms. To create and annihilate material substance, cause it to aggregate in forms according to his desire, would be the supreme manifestation of the power of Man›s mind, his most complete triumph over the physical world, his crowning achievement which would place him beside his Creator and fulfill his ultimate destiny. http://releaseteslasresearch.weebly.com/

“…the final goal of world revolution is not Socialism or even Communism, it is not a change in the existing economic system, it is not the destruction of civilization in a material sense; the revolution desired by the leaders is a moral and spiritual revolution, an anarchy of ideas by which all standards set up throughout nineteen centuries shall be reversed.” — Nesta Webster, Secret Societies and Subversive Movements

USP Pharmaceutical Grade Melatonin:
One of the Most Effective AntiCancer Treatments in Existence A Compilation of Various Scientific Studies Numerous studies have established USP Pharmaceutical Grade melatonin as one of the most effective anti-cancer treatments in existence. Studies have also revealed this type of melatonin to be more effective for treating pancreatic and lung cancers than a drug commonly used to treat these types of cancers. What’s more, this drug may cost more than $4,000 per month, while twenty milligrams of DMF Melapure® melatonin* cost approximately $50 per month. Melatonin functions to destroy cancer in multiple ways. First, because it is toxic to cancer cells, it induces apoptosis, or cancer cell auto-destruction, as well as directly kills cancer cells. It also slows cancerous tumor growth through a variety of mechanisms, such as by inhibiting epidermal growth factor receptors, and inhibiting angiogenesis (new tumor blood vessel creation). Epidermal growth factors play an important role in cancer cell growth and proliferation, so blocking their receptors on cancer cells prevents them from carrying out these roles. Melatonin also stimulates the immune system and increases the cancer-killing activity of macrophages, monocytes, natural killer cells, T-helper cells and eosinophils, all of which are involved in cancer cell destruction. Melatonin has properties which enable it to block the effects of estrogen upon cancer cells; this is important because certain forms of estrogen stimulate the growth of hormonally-influenced cancers, such as breast, endometrial, ovarian and uterine cancers. Finally, as an antioxidant, Melatonin reduces inflammation, a condition that enables cancer’s survival, and it scavenges free radicals so that they don’t damage normal cells and make them vulnerable to further genetic
mutations. Despite these favorable statistics, Melatonin is seldom recommended to patients in conventional medicine because the laws which govern the practice of medicine are drastically influenced by pharmaceutical interests, which prevent doctors from recommending it to their patients in lieu of expensive, damaging chemotherapy drugs. It is, however, an effective natural treatment that not only helps to prevent cancer, but which also plays an integral role in healing the body from it. (Same laws that inspire the anonymity of this article. Ed.) *Note: Many clinical studies support the use of melatonin for conditions ranging from concussions to cancer therapy: the version used is DMF (drug manufactured file), USP (United State Pharmacopeia) melatonin, which is the same used by Life Choice in their new Melapure® Melatonin. Commercial brands that use synthetic or either animalderived melatonin are less effective. Life Choice Melapure® melatonin originates from L-tryptophan, a known serotonin releaser.
siastical religion signifies a spiritual death. The masses are always moving, never still. Death, Degeneration, Corruption, Inversion, Perversion. The temerity of reason now a splinter fracturing the psyche the gap of which grows greater with each passing day. For man is afraid to look in his own mirror.
The Psychic Roots of Tyranny It all started when patriarchy, like a blast of Luciferian light, burst onto the scene. With this dramatic event within the psyche of man the masculine, solar deities triumphed over the lunar, nature deities. Lilith tore out of the side of the Sacred Feminine as the subliminal, primordial darkness of Tao became suppressed. Thus opposed opposites were born. The Olympians had prevailed over the Titans. With this Man becomes man and God- the slayer is no longer the slain, the face of Christ turns asymmetric, the body spars with the soul, and the heart torments the mind. Joseph Campbell, in his work Oriental Mythology, elucidated on the beginnings of this spiritual break when he relayed the following: “And with the progressive devaluation of
the mother-goddess in favour of the father, which everywhere accompanied the maturation of the dynastic state and patriarchy but was carried further in Southwest Asia than anywhere else, a sense of essential separation from the supreme value symbol became in time the characteristic religious sentiment of the entire Near East. And the rising ziggurats, striving to reach upwards in tendance, while at the same time offering to the heavenly powers a ladder by which to come graciously down to the cut-off race of man, were the earliest signals of this spiritual break.” The above sentiments, psychologically speaking, reflect a suppression of the unconscious (Mother Goddess) by the conscious mind (Father). Due to an overextended ego that has run off the reservation and forgotten its instinctual roots, a psychic split has emerged within the collective consciousness of humanity. As this gap widens between the opposites within (male and female energies), man becomes increasingly captive to neuroses he himself produces. Psychic epidemics, of which our modern day tyranny is one, proliferate and envelop the earth as our spiritual and moral values become a thing of the past. The world inexorably becomes an infirmary on fire as eternally sunny skies blind us to ourselves. In effect, when man amputates Nature he amputates himself. As Dr. Carl Jung conveyed in his often cryptic work Aion: “Loss of roots (unconscious instincts due to repression) and lack of tradition neuroticize the masses and prepare them for collective hysteria. Collective hysteria calls for collective therapy, which consists in abolition of liberty and terrorization. Where rationalistic materialism holds sway, states tend to develop less into prisons than into lunatic asylums.” Ralph Waldo Emerson articulated the same when he imparted the following in his essay Nature: “The reason why the world lacks unity, and lies broken and in heaps, is because man is disunited with himself.” With this acute psychic imbalance comes

gadget to further exploit the very human weaknesses of vanity and the desperate need to be endlessly and pointlessly distracted. A chronically self-obsessed, trivialized generation (like no other generation before it) of ‘selfie’ snappers and banal ‘tweeters’ is the technocrat’s utopia. Disinterested, disenfranchised and disengaged from the outside world, ‘Generation Now’ (the iGeneration) have become tyranny’s best enablers – politically, philosophically and spiritually ineffective – vapid consumers and mindless infants. Delivering themselves up ‘freely’ to the corporate-military-complex – their every mood, ‘status’, location, relationship and conversation accessible in real time or stored in vast information vaults secreted away in distant desert bunkers. The very architecture of social media seems intrinsically designed to be nothing more than a gargantuan electronic trap to collect as much data, biometric and psychological information as possible about the population. Facebook’s notorious ‘experiments’ in ‘emotional contagion’ and political herding become even more sinister when
placed in their rightful context. Despite Facebook’s chummy image and branding, ostensible founder Mark Zuckerberg has made it clear in numerous interviews his desire to mould a future of what can only be described as pure techno-totalitarianism. A consumer’s/user’s every action and thought mediated through the ‘safe’ interface of Facebook – always surveilled, always stalked and tabulated – available to corporations and intelligence agencies at all times. ‘Dangerous’ physical interactions minimized and discouraged. Whilst Facebook may have a hidden nativity story, its birth secretly shepherded by funds channeled through In-Q-Tel (the CIA’s venture capital arm), the same in fact may also apply to the very foundational platforms of the Internet itself. Recent research by journalist Nafeez Ahmed has revealed the cosy (symbiotic even) relationship between (‘Don’t Be Evil’) Google and the entire American intelligence apparatus. Mediated through a decades-old shadowy group known as the ‘Highlands Forum’ – leading technologists, corporate heads and intelligence chiefs have met privately innumerable times to cross-pollinate innovations, strategies and policy. Ahmed makes it clear that the entire contemporary surveillance landscape may well have been seeded through the Highlands Forum, as business and the

secret state pursue their (remarkably similar) aims. Much like the unspoken ‘revolving door’ that operates between the Pentagon and the armaments industries – the board members and senior officials of Google, Facebook and alike have the striking habit of being familiar faces from the recesses of the Pentagon, CIA, NSA and so on. So ubiquitous is this limited personnel pool, that ultimately the question must be asked whether Google and Facebook are simply not just clandestine arms of the national security state (developed apparently to protect communications in case of a devastating nuclear conflict at the height of the Cold War) are naturally products of ARPA (the predecessor of today’s DARPA) the research and development arm of the Pentagon. Does it take the mind of a paranoiac to wonder whether decades of social engineering research, think-tank profiling and Rand Corporation policy directives, coupled with the natural desires of bureaucrats, tyrants and salesmen (control of a captive market), has finally produced the perfect homogenized and pasteurized Panopticon Supermarket?

David Thrussell is a poet trapped in the body of a hillbilly. Or a hopeless romantic hidden in the twisted frame of a dark electronic musician. Late at night Thrussell fantasises that actually he lives next door to Hieronymous Bosch in Medieval Europe and has hallucinated the whole dreadful modern era while suffering from acute ergot poisoning. We are not entirely convinced that this is not the case. The world knows him (if it knows him at all), as the creator of a seeming multitude of obscure recordings (Snog, Black Lung and Soma among others) and film scores. He has written previously for Wax Poetics, Fortean Times and numerous other publications. **The above article appeared in New Dawn 150 (May-June 2015), if you appreciated this article, please consider a digital subscription to New Dawn (digital subscription© New Dawn) © New Dawn Magazine and the respective author.

have noticed with music tuned in A=432 Hz is that it is not only more beautiful and harmonious to the ears, but it also induces a more inward experience that is felt inside the body at the spine and heart. Music tuned in A=440 Hz was felt as a more outward and mental experience, and was felt at the side of the head which projected outwards. Audiophiles have also stated that A=432 Hz music seems to be nonlocal and can fill an entire room, whereas A=440 Hz can be perceived as directional or linear in sound propagation. “The ancients tuned their instruments at an A of 432 Hz instead of 440 Hz – and for a good reason. There are plenty of music examples on the internet that you can listen to, in order to establish the difference for yourself. Attuning the instrument to 432 Hz results in a more relaxing sound, while 440 Hz slightly tenses up to body. This is because 440 Hz is out of tune with both macrocosmos and microcosmos. 432 Hz on the contrary is in tune. To give an example of how this is manifested microcosmically: our breath (0,3 Hz) and our pulse (1,2 Hz) relate to the frequency of the lower octave of an A of 432 Hz (108 Hz) as 1:360 and 1:90.” – innergarden.org “The overall sound difference was noticeable, the 432 version sounding warmer, clearer and instantly sounded more listenable but the 440 version felt tighter, with more aggressive energy.” –— Anonymous guitarist

http://youtu.be/PewsS9Y9pVo David Helpling – Sticks and Stones in 432 Hz:
I personally have enjoyed many bands, artists and styles of music even though they were tuning in A=440 Hz, however by comparing a few songs in both A=432 Hz and A=440 Hz, I can feel and hear the difference. I wouldn’t say that my experience of 440 Hz music has turned me into an aggressive person, but I can understand how an entire population being exposed to music that is more mind directed as opposed to heart directed — not to mention all of the materialistic and ego-driven lyrics in most popular music — is a perfect combination to maintain a more discordant frequency and state of consciousness within humanity. “Music based on C=128hz (C note in concert A=432hz) will support humanity on its way towards spiritual freedom. The inner ear of the human being is built on C=128 hz” – Rudolph Steiner I cannot state with complete certainty that every idea suggested in this article is 100% accurate, nor am I an expert on the subject. For this reason, I suggest that we each do our own research on the matter with an open yet discerning mind if we are looking for scientific validation. However, we all possess intuition and the ability to observe without judgment — which can be just as valuable (if not more) as filling our

To do so, we need to listen with our entire body and a neutral awareness as opposed to with our mental ideas, judgments and preconceptions. Let me know which frequency resonates more with you! If you are interested in changing your music’s pitch to A=432 Hz, go HERE (https://youtu.be/KO1jSeP-e-o) to learn how to do it. As you may know, sounds have the biggest impact in our thinking. 432 Hz makes the sound of music more harmonious, calm, promotes happiness and deep understanding, passion. 440 Hz is more energetic, faster, it is almost like racing. It is more competitive and focusing on the details, the understanding of the things we can see. So why would someone and most importantly how, decides that 440 Hz is better than 432 Hz? Because music touches us where nothing else can, where the essence of our Emotional Being is, and if you control what emotions/thoughts the music promotes, than your work of controlling the world is 99% done. “They” don’t want people to understand Our True Nature and Our Higher Self. They want us to be in a hurry, to believe only what we see and be competitive about material things. This way, the 99% will live in the reality created for them by the 1%.

You can soak, boil, and then freeze chickpeas, kidney beans, black beans – you name it — for a fraction of the cost. Veggies can also be prepared this way, but why not just eat them fresh?
Conclusion Not only will drastically cutting back your plastic consumption be tremendous for the environment and our planet Earth, but as you can tell from the steps listed above, it can greatly improve your quality of life as well, because in doing so you are indirectly reducing your own personal exposure to many other chemicals.

from page 18 behaviour, or guidelines on what behaviours to encourage. This includes cleanliness and austerity, along with cultivating an attitude of gratitude and contentment, and being engaged in a disciplined practice of focus, devotion, and self-study. n Path 3 is Asana: Developing of physical postures. These are designed to assist the mind and body in relaxing, through development of strength, steadiness, and flexibility. The purpose of the asanas is to prepare the body to comfortably withstand the rigors of long-term meditation. n Path 4 is Pranayama: Conscious breathing techniques. These further the mind’s ability to focus, and they energize the body n Path 5 is Pratyhara: Withdrawing from ordinary sensory perceptions and limiting focus to a single object of attention. Restricting one’s attention frees the mind to concentrate on internal objects of attention, fostering even more tranquility of mind. n Path 6 is Dharana: Developing a steady, sustained concentration. The root word for dhri in dharana means “to hold”; one holds attention on a single object of thought. This type of concentration is similar to that experienced during highly focused intellectual work. n Path 7 is Dhyana: Developing prolonged levels of concentration on an object, with deeper absorption and greater sustained alertness. This is sometimes referred to as meditation. n Path 8 is Samadhi: Unity or mystical absorption with an object of attention. In this state, distinctions between subject and object dissolve and one “becomes” the object of meditation. This awareness is frequently described as ecstatic. That is, it is a super-aware state accompanied by intense, nonsensual pleasure. As you can see from the above list, ‘doing yoga’ involves many things, and only some of these paths are achieved through exercise. It’s also important to keep in mind that these are just a few points out of many taken from the second Book of The Yoga Sutras. There is much more involved here, but in writing this article, I wished only to introduce readers to the complexity of yoga, and to highlight the fact that it involves much more than simply taking an exercise class. Just as one, today practices an aspect of yoga through exercise and stretching, others may do the same by practicing mediation, or detachment from certain physical pleasures. The list of applications is no doubt long.

Study Reveals ‘Killer Germs’ Annihilated by Medical Smoke (Smudging) by Jeff Roberts
t’s known to indigenous American cultures as smudging, a sacred, long-held practice that entails the burning of herbs and plant resins, the most common being white sage, in a ceremonial type setting. The smoke from the burning plant is said to “unlock the plant’s spirit,” which, when wafted through the air, cleanses the person or designated area of unwanted energies. Within the last century, though, the traditional Native American practice has been adopted by a broadening Western spiritual class who are reconnecting with our ancestor’s

to fix problems, to elevate our status, and to alleviate boredom.” [David Cain] Which is why we work so hard… because working gives us the freedom to consume…which is what we are supposed to be doing. We fit in when we work to consume to obey. And we’ve been trained to believe that fitting in matters. “The perfect customer is dissatisfied but hopeful, uninterested in serious personal development, highly habituated to the television, working full-time, earning a fair amount, indulging during their free time, and somehow just getting by. Is this you?” [David Cain] http://www.raptitude.com/ The corporate work model has become the contemporary slave management program for a world ruled by fiat money masters. What we are told to believe is prosperity is really just an elegant trap, an illusion. And at the very top of this pyramid of lies is the dark secret as to why we all have to work so hard in order to experience life on planet earth. At its very core, the world economy is based on a rigged fiat monetary system that is explicitly designed to create and perpetuate debt slavery, both personal and public. The dollar is a private enterprise, privately owned by a select few people who create money for the rest of us and get paid like gods to do so. For every dollar that is put into play in this world, a dollar plus interest is then owed to the people who own the money. The more we do, the deeper in debt we go. It’s guaranteed. At present, more money is owed to the money masters than is actually in circulation. This is bondage, it is servitude, and it is slavery. It’s also the secret which has allowed the 1% to become the 1%, and why income equality between workers and plantation owners is so outrageous. We don’t have time to resist any of this in any meaningful way, because we’re struggling to make it work in the corporate world, jockeying against each other for illusory wealth and prestige on a playing field created by criminals. The further

and avenues for expressing yourself outside of this system are growing alongside of our awareness of just how ridiculous and toxic the corporate work culture has become.

experience astonishment and awe. It’s existentially taken aback. It is so transfixed by the inscrutable mystery of being an interconnected thing that it wonders in absolute befuddlement how it could not have noticed the poignant beauty of the interdependent cosmos in the time before. How could it not have foreseen that the soul was more powerful than the self? Then again, how can a caterpillar fathom the butterfly still to come? With the soul awake comes a new flavour of pain. Your ego needs to figure out how to switch from being in charge to being a tool for the soul. This can be a painful process. The ego wants to be the one calling the shots, not playing second fiddle to the upstart soul, no matter how much healthier things are when its faculties are focused into soulcraft. Ego transformed into a tool for soulcraft is the ultimate art form. But this requires a lot of trial and error, much admittance to being wrong about a great many things, and truckloads of pride must be swallowed. This is painful for the ego because it means that the past must be abandoned, that the Great Mystery can no longer be avoided, that the self-as-it-was cannot continue, and that nothing is ultimately permanent. When you know this in your bones, you live for the first time in your life. The cocoon of your rebirth is a broken shell lying at the edge of where the Matrix (self-deception) meets the Desert of the Real (self-awakening). And you know you must leave it behind, because now you are no longer limited by boundaries, you are liberated by horizons. You stand at the forefront of that liberation, declaring to the universe, “In order to awaken all things, I must attempt to awaken all of myself. The way of awakening may be unattainable, but I vow to attain it.”

primordial wisdom. Even science has been looking into the incredible antiseptic benefits of smudging. One study, published in the journal Ethnopharmacology, observed that a 1 hour treatment of medicinal smoke emanated by burning wood and a mixture of odoriferous and medicinal herbs (havan sámagri=material used in oblation to fire all over India) on aerial bacterial population caused an over 94% reduction of bacterial counts by 60 min. Furthermore, the smoke maintained air purity for up to 24h in the closed room. Using Biolog microplate panels and the
Just when your confidence is bolstered and your soul is flourishing into a state of Eudaimonia (a state conducive to happiness. Ed.), the hard truth of the path sets in: true enlightenment is unattainable. Infinity is unreachable. Self-perfection is an illusion. The Fibonacci sequence can never achieve the sacred state of Phi. The Tao that can be named is never the true Tao. But there is sacred beauty in such painful truths: curiosity can never
be quenched, there will always be questions, and the fact that everything changes means that nothing can ever be fixed. There is deep freedom in such musings. There is soulbreath in the soulbreak. As I wrote in Shadow of the Shaman: “Soulbreak, like heartbreak, opens us up to the vast knowledge hidden within the nature of pain, but it also teaches us detachment. Soulbreak is detachment in the moment. If you are truly detached, your mental-spirit-body becomes a mighty tool for clear seeing. Authentic detachment becomes existential seeing.” Existential seeing and present detachment are the cornerstones of having the wherewithal to walk the path. Without agenda, free of conceit, and liberated from the boundaries of having a goal, present detachment is the wonderful side effect of having survived soulbreak. With it comes existential seeing, the ability to see the big picture, to feel the interconnectedness of all things weaving in and out of life and entropy. You see with over-eyes, like a cosmic owl with galaxies in its giant pupils, perched on the branch of the universe, taking it all in. Your heart, having broken, is a beautiful wound made all the more fecund by the painful process of initiation. Your soul, having cracked in half, is stronger than ever, breaking apart and coming back together again. Each time more robust. Each time more open to receiving the truth of impermanence. The path to enlightenment is still a razor’s edge, but your feet are sharpening stones. You sharpen the universe and the universe sharpens you right back. You’ve cut through God so many times that infinity lost count. Vital cocoons behind you. Vast horizons ahead of you. The heart with which you perceive Love is the same heart with which Love perceives you, and the soul with which you envision Infinity is the same soul with which Infinity envisions you. You’ve carried your hard-earned ashes to the mountain. Somewhere in the brighter flame of that summit is a Phoenix laughing at its own rebirth.

Microlog database, researchers found that even the presence of common pathogens like Corynebacterium urealyticum, Curtobacterium flaccumfaciens, Enterobacter aerogenes (Klebsiella mobilis), Kocuria rosea, Pseudomonas syringae pv. persicae, Staphylococcus lentus, and Xanthomonas campestris pv. tardicrescens were greatly reduced up to 30 days after the smudging took place. Another scientific review (www.ncbi. nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17030480) looked at single and multi-ingredient herbal and nonherbal remedies administered as smoke from 50 countries across 5 continents. They found, with surprising overlap worldwide, medicinal smoke is mostly used to address the following specific organ systems: “pulmonary (23.5%), neurological (21.8%) and dermatological (8.1%).”
They also found that “ambient smoke,” which is the type of passively inhaled smoke generated by smudging/incense, is traditionally believed to be an effective “air purifier.” The review argued that modern medicine should investigate medicinal smoke as a drug delivery system, owing to the following advantages: “The advantages of smoke-based remedies are rapid delivery to the brain, more efficient absorption by the body and lower costs of production.”
Many are unaware just how many air contaminants are floating about their households at all times.
Indoor Air Quality Is Worse Than You Might Think While air quality is an often-overlooked health concern, what many do not realize is just how many nasty particles we are consuming on the daily. According to a study by the California EPA, you breathe anywhere between 10,000 and 70,000 litres of air every 24 hours. A 2009 study of homes near the Mexico/ Arizona border found indoor air quality to be worse than previously thought, identifying 586
chemicals, including the pesticides diazinon, chlorpyrifos and DDT, phthalates in high levels, and even 120 chemicals they couldn’t recognize.

the destruction of the organs that have hereto allowed us to integrate the unconscious instincts that sustain our conscious life. Those organs are the numinous symbols we have relegated to the ash heap of superstition. With this unilateral dismissal man becomes omniscient. The cosmos are no longer a map of the mind, nor does any Tree represent the transformation process; Nature’s hand is no longer a guide, the Macro no longer mirrors the Micro, no Serpent is the divine embodiment of wisdom, and the Earth has ceased to be called the Great Mother Goddess. Neither seeing deep nor far, man becomes a shell of his former stature- an ant as opposed to an eagle. No longer a wonderworker even if he imagines himself to be so.
Gods Suppressed are Demons As intimated in the beginning of the last section, the old gods have been ruthlessly cast out. And it’s precisely for this reason that we now feel a need to cast them out: gods suppressed become demons. Joseph Campbell gave us some insight into this in his work Occidental Mythology when he wrote: “…..through the operation of a second natural law, namely, that gods suppressed become demons; which is to say, that psychological and sociological factors neither assimilated nor recognized by the consciously controlled system become autonomous and must ultimately break the approved system apart.” Dovetailing with the above, but placed within a somewhat more intelligible and palatable psychological context, Dr. Jung notes the following in his stupendous work Alchemical Studies: “We are still as much possessed by autonomous psychic contents as if they were Olympians. Today they are called phobias, obsessions, and so forth; in a word, neurotic symptoms. The gods have become diseases; Zeus no longer rules Olympus but rather the solar plexus, and produces curious specimens for the doctor’s consulting room, or disorders the brains of politicians and journalists who unwittingly let loose psychic epidemics on the world.” We’ve now come round full circle with added clarity and insight. The Sacred Feminine or Mother Goddess or Egyptian Isis, is a feminine personification of the Unconscious Mind. She is the Matrix of Life itself, the Womb of Space-time, that mysterious ineffable foundation from which everything arises and ultimately returns to. Her functionaries, administrators, attendants, guardians, or agents- the gods/goddesses of Antiquityare parts of our innermost Self. They are the autonomous psychic factors, archetypal forces, contents, or instincts of the Unconscious Mind.
Picasso’s Guernica When these gods/goddesses are repressed, they boomerang back in the form of veritable demons, i.e. neuroses, psychoses, phobias, obsessions, and the like. The net result is a dangerous disconnect between the two minds, the consequences of which have become all too apparent.
The Death of God At the end of the day, the ultimate implication of our current conundrum could not be more profound. For the further humanity strays from the Self (epicenter of Unconscious Mind) the more the God-Image will fade which ultimately leads to the annulment of the human personality. Life then becomes completely devoid of meaning, purpose, value, and aim. A yawn of nothingness opens wide (Nietzsche’s Will to Nothingness) as humanity is swallowed by a sea of superfluity. Eventually, the chasm reaches a crescendo and an atheistic materialism results. Again, quoting Dr. Jung, this time from The Archetypes and the Collective Unconscious: “The danger becomes all the greater the more our interest fastens upon external objects and the more we forget that the differentiation of our relation to nature should go hand in hand with a correspondingly differentiated relation to the spirit, so as to establish the necessary balance. If the outer object is not offset by an inner, unbridled materialism results, couple with maniacal arrogance or else the extinction of the autonomous personality, which is in any case the ideal of the totalitarian mass state.” It is important to note that when Nietzsche made his pronouncement that “God is dead” he wasn’t flirting with some nebulous intellectual abstraction but rather stating what has become recognized as a psychic fact of our time. In the book Man and His Sym-
bols, Aniela Jaffe writes the following: “Nietzsche, whom Chirico quotes as his authority, has given a name to the “dreadful void” in his saying “God is dead”. Without referring to Nietzsche, Kandinsky wrote in On the Spiritual in Art: “Heaven is empty. God is dead”… Dr. Jung also came to realize that this strange and mysterious phenomenon of the death of God is a psychic fact of our time. In 1937 he wrote: “I know- and here I am expressing what countless other people know—that the present time is the time of God’s disappearance and death”. For years he had observed the Christian God-Image fading in his patient’s dreams- that is, the Unconscious of modern men. The loss of that image is the loss of the supreme factor that gives life a meaning.”
The Real Revolution: Bridging the Gulf If we wish to circumvent the clutches of the global devil-doers and thereby save ourselves from the prospect of total enslavement under a nightmarish, hi-tech, neo-feudalistic technocratic world government, then we will need to address the issue of man’s malady of mind. Man is a giant but has been relegated to crawling on all fours. Overly focalized he peers out at the universe as if through a peephole. Conflating the “voice in the head” with his true Self he has mistaken the part for the whole. As a result of this self-imposed slumber, this monotheism of consciousness, this over-inflated Ego, the mind has been effectively pigeon holed and cut off from that infinite ocean of awareness and power. As Bruce Lee brilliantly put it in the opening scene of Enter the Dragon: “Don’t think! Feel. It is like a finger pointing a way to the moon. Don’t concentrate on the finger or you will miss all that heavenly glory.”
can see how quickly our indoor air quality can become compromised. All of this data leads to another question – could all of these common indoor particulates be leading to widespread health issues like headaches, respiratory problems, asthma, allergies, fatigue, and more? While more research is still needed, the bactericidal benefits of smudging seem quite promising, especially if such a simple practice has the potential for reducing some of today’s most common and inconvenient health issues.
Carlos Castaneda vexed in a similar vein in Tales of Power when he wrote: “….we are luminous beings. We are perceivers. We are an awareness; we are not objects; we have no solidity. We are boundless. The world of objects and solidity is a way of making our passage on earth convenient. It is only a description that was created to help us. We, or rather our reason, forget that the description is only a description and thus we entrap the totality of ourselves in a vicious circle from which we rarely emerge in our lifetime.” The good news in all of this is that the future most certainly does not belong to the Occult Elite. The Ego, along with all of its apparently fortified totalitarian structures, is ultimately destined to dissolve. After analyzing over 80,000 dreams, Dr. Jung identified a sort of hidden, regulating center that creates an imperceptible process of psychic growth—-what he refers to as the process of Individuation. This irrational life process goes on whether we like it or not and is embedded within the meandering pattern that unfolds over a lifetime of dreaming. In short, it represents the pushing of the Ego to the background so as to allow the Self to come to the foreground. And so, as the circles on the shamanic medicine wheel gradually spiral towards a Center, so too are we spiralling back towards a mysterious epicenter within the Unconscious Mind. In the language of alchemy, the moon is circumambulating around the sun; the circle is being squared. Pretty weird huh? Ironically enough, the word weird, as meaning “Fate,” is derived from the Anglo-Saxon word ‘wyrd.’ It refers to a sense of an inward potentiality in the process of becoming with an approaching inevitable end. Thanks to the ‘miracle’ of empirical psychology we now know what that end is: Wholeness. Nietzsche was right- Life is Will to Power. As the end of Goethe’s Faust runs… “The Eternal-Feminine… lures to perfection”

Plants from page 2
The Fibonacci sequence governs the placement of leaves along a stem, ensuring that each leaf has maximum access to sunlight and rain. If you look straight down along a stem, the leaves (or branches) emerging from it will spiral such that when you count from one leaf to the one that lines up directly below it, the number of leaves between them and the number of times that group of leaves spirals around the stem will both be Fibonacci numbers. When biotech companies start meddling with this Divine plan, they alter the perfect sequencing of leaves, the perfect number of flowers that appear on a stem, and so on. The Golden Ratio becomes warped by Monsanto, Dow, Syngenta. Et al. The double spiral that appears in all plants from cacti to pineapples to pinecones is part of the Divine plan for creation. Biotechnology is not.
The Music of Creation Some, however, do seem to get it. The reason plants respond to human emotions, and even harmonious vibration, such as those found in certain musical pieces, is because they are part of a larger intelligence. In the creation story of the Vishnu Purana, the first thing to manifest at the beginning of our cosmic cycle is cosmic intelligence. From this cosmic intelligence emanates the individual intelligences of all existing entities in the universe – this means plants, too. Elias Tempton, a grower of cannabis, plays Chopin for his plants for nearly ten hours a day. He says in comparison to plants he doesn’t play classical music for, his cannabis plants had, “thicker skins and were more turgid in their leaf structure.” Matt Lopez, the master cultivator for
Northern Lights, shares the same practice. “I constantly play music for my plants and even when I leave for the day I have music playing for them all night.” During the day, when Matt is in the grow-house, he plays everything from Johnny Cash to opera. But when he leaves for the day he leaves the marijuana plants with classical music, like Beethoven or Mozart. “I’ve read that plants respond to sound waves and vibrations, and that’s what makes them grow. It helps the plants grow faster.” If plants are so intelligent, we owe it to ourselves to create a more hospitable environment in which they can grow.

Near Death Experience & Clarity By Glennis Taylor
have always been fascinated with stories of those who share their Near Death Experiences (NDE). For most of us who have had our feet firmly planted on the ground, the stories serve as a vicarious window to explore the ever-mysterious “other realms”. These other realms have been colourfully incorporated into myths and tales throughout human history. Recently I had an engaging conversation with a psychic and medical intuitive that has not only had a NDE over a decade ago in 2006, but also a return from death shortly following. Clarity, (Denise) of Clarity For Your Life Path, wove her story as I listened spellbound. In a routine surgery to deal with a uterine cancer diagnosis, Denise began to hemorrhage and her heart flat-lined. She actually felt her heart stop though under anesthetic. She was successfully brought around, but
Helpful Service Review
in the process, she was almost electrocuted because of her belly ring. Following this operation, Denise was sent home to recuperate. Unfortunately the hemorrhaging continued and she was readmitted to hospital having lost all but one liter of blood. The doctors were amazed that she remained conscious having such severe blood loss that resulted in her almost bleeding to death. The mother of three young children, Denise’s future seemed precarious. As her candle dimmed, she thought she was dreaming. Receiving four liters of blood and undergoing one and a half hours of surgery, Denise ended up in a three-week coma on life support as her organs began to shut down. Her family was told that there was little hope for her. While doctors spoke in her presence of the dire prognosis, while in her coma Denise was present and listening and trying to get the attention of those around her, she tried to move her toes, to communicate, but she could not. She chose to meditate the whole time she was comatose. A friend of hers contacted a monk in India, sending her picture, and word spread of her plight. Two hundred monks ended up praying for her around the clock.
She felt cold in her coma, wishing someone would give her another blanket to warm her. As she lay there, she travelled elsewhere seeing the most amazing white light in the other realm. Without a doubt it influenced her art when she returned to this life. Her stain glass pieces and artwork were canvases of white, trying to capture that rapturous glowing white light she felt while journeying on life support. At one point, she felt swooped up in the arms of a loving being that indicated to her that she could come back if she agreed to follow her life path of bringing divine truth to others as a clairvoyant. She agreed and started to feel sensations return to her body. She regained consciousness and rang the buzzer and to the shock of the nurses and doctors, she was found sitting up in bed asking what the date and time were. When she was released from hospital, all the staff rallied and cheered as she began a long journey back to health from what seemed an impossible recovery. Interestingly, her husband was given a cell phone to use while Denise was in the coma. The number on the phone was not theirs, yet he was receiving about four calls a day for a
couple of weeks from different people asking him if they could book an appointment with Denise for a reading. Denise was still in a coma and had never done readings. Denise is known now as Clarity and has been giving detailed readings to people ever since. She is in high demand and delivers messages to people about their purpose here and can communicate with the other realms to source out information that give her clients an understanding of things in their life including health issues. She will sometimes reach out to departed ones to bring messages back to loved ones here. Her readings bring clarity and a sense of peace and purpose to so many people. She can see the roots of blocked energy and help to free the blocks. She now lives her purpose: to help others discover their own purpose. It is comforting to know that in our times of confusion and doubt, that there are people like Clarity that have the gifts to shed light on our circumstances and give us the insight to make sense of our lives.

“Little is known that cannabis has been used as one of the most healing remedies hundreds of years before Christ. In the ancient Persian religious scripts, which among other things describe the most healing herbs, cannabis takes the first place,” concludes Rick. His biggest wish and goal is to live in a world without cancer.
son’s treatment starts with several drops of hemp oil three times a day. “The usual dose I give to cancer patients is 60 grams within 90 days. And, it is never too late for the patient to start cannabis oil
therapy. There isn’t such an excuse as, “It is late”… If you ask me, if I approve of smoking marijuana, I will tell you it isn’t as effective as cannabis oil, but it is scientifically proven that people who smoke marijuana live six years longer than those who don’t.” Moreover, he adds that as opposed to Europe, North America still puts a blind eye when it comes to legalization of cannabis. He believes that every country in the world should allow their citizens to cultivate and use cannabis for medical purposes. He also points out that pharmacies should be opened for those who can’t cultivate it.
in stark contrast to the truth of our existence. This mad spectacle’s central merit comes from being a necessary ingredient not only as the backdrop to the theatre of our lives, but also to underline that very feature: it’s theatre! Play! What else can you call living breathing talking walking laughing crying wonders taking up such a cornucopia of roles to fill a world with such endless folly! Now that’s entertainment! And who doesn’t love to laugh? Example: chicken after noticing there’s a bigger world being kept from them for nefarious reasons, tries to share this discovery, but is met with tremendous resistance as the fellow inmates do their utmost to not perceive this newfound perspective, many doing their utmost to also shut our hero up and out. Smashing against such madness (cognitive dissonance if you prefer) demonstrates to our hero the very real and palpable difference awareness has already created. By simply being determined in following curiosity and not taking any ‘established’ feature of reality for granted our chicken has evolved. Realizing that people can be imprisoned by more then a fence, a coop, and that there are many kinds of coops, some there in front of our eyes that can surely be overcome, but others exist that are far more difficult to get beyond, invisible ones made by people and their beliefs. Freedom is our natural state of being; once our totality is reclaimed we possess super powers. We kinda do before but they aren’t really all that accessible until we bloom. It really is that simple, not easy but simple. Discipline is the key here, forgiveness is darn handy as well, but first and foremost: NO MORE SELF PITY. Hence, one stops personally doing anything that inhibits or harms that natural state of being. We are after
all our own KEEPERS of our own COOPs. There are others but that’s where we must start. All of us are familiar with that annoyingly ceaseless negative narrator in our heads that rarely shuts up long enough for us to get any peace. Once we make our intent for freedom clear and unbending in its direction we become unpalatable to those parasitical powers that seek to continually constrict and confine us within the parameters of the evil coop we’ve been tricked into creating for ourselves. And that darn voice ‘in our heads’ transforms into something amazing and now entirely at our service. Actually that is one of the keys to unlocking the power of Seeing. Silence really is golden. Example: our hero can now See what others cannot, or will not. There is no pretending otherwise, and the more the rest of the chickens try to and insist on their captivity the more our hero burns to be free. ‘What is this world anyway?’ our hero first asks, then following that bullet-train of thought and feeling cannot help but wonder about this whole idea of chickens and coops and who’s idea was this anyway? And am I really just a chicken? A chicken in a coop? Who says? Who is jailing whom? And are those wings I’ve got? In my humble opinion blooming is where it’s at, for each one of us individually and the whole bunch together once the party really gets started. Looking around the whole natural world seems already at it in one way or another. Inspiration is literally filling our air with the power of Love in Bloom. Creation is everywhere, even in the dark places. Spring into transformative action! Why not be your own hero creating your own way to freedom? Better then a chicken in a coop waiting around for
dinner. Create your reality don’t just succumb to someone else’s appetite for that very thing. Some will look up first then that will wake them to the real world they’ve been dreaming for so long. Some must wake first before being able to perceive the same. I assure you wholeheartedly that life is way more fun living with one’s eyes wide open then wide shut. And if it all seems just a bit too much for you please remember: As the bow bends, the arrow is mightily pulled in the opposite direction of its intended flight. So too to have we been bent and pulled, held aching with the tension of certain release, seemingly going the wrong way the whole time. My suggestion is simple: make use of that energy to fly free. It is your energy after all; just make sure you’re aiming your Intent for Freedom. Looking up offers a tremendous opportunity for waking up. Waking up offers a tremendous opportunity for growing up. Growing up offers a tremendous opportunity for us all to save the day, to be the heroes that cleaned up Heaven and restored our lost Eden. This is not in any way beyond us and is in fact our duty as conscious beings and our task as conscious men and woman towards all of life. Our capacities are as yet barely explored, and that exploration is the actual adventure of our lives! Imagine our world and our selves free, that’s how it begins. But imagine what comes next! What a world we’ll make together! What worlds we’ll explore and create. What an endless mystery we are! What a wondrous existence we could all enjoy! But first we must be free. So look up in the sky: Is it a bird? Is it a plane? And are those wings I’ve got? Cluckcluck-cluck.
from page 10 pile of medical documents about the effects of my oil. If you don’t know the meaning of a “coward court,” go to Canada and you will see what I mean,” claims Rick. Rick claims that he has never sold weed, but only hemp oil, and as he was deeply disappointed by the Canadian government and corrupted doctors, he even put the recipe for hemp oil on the web page phoenixtears.ca. According to him, the preparation of this miraculous oil is extremely easy. Simp-

is. Once that is Seen to be so…one can develop the proper attitude and perspective from which to deal with such a condition, first and foremost on a personal level, then, because who doesn’t love company, by example for those around. Example: chicken in coop notices coop, sees world outside of it, figures out what’s going on (as contrast goes it’s a big and helpful one) and starts a’ squawking and a’ wondering. Escape from the coop becomes the central motivator in its life, not socializing to make eggs or more chicks for the slaughter. Nothing alive enjoys captivity, as it is contrary to life itself. Side note: I’m capitalizing the word ‘Seeing’ because that word is an accurate descriptor of a function of the totality of our ‘senses’ which allows for a fuller, truer, more complete and encompassing perception of reality. i.e. Seeing is the direct perception of energy. There are tried and true methods for accessing this ability and it is one we all share in potentially. Mystery (our positive perspective of it being wonder) is the actual state of reality: it goes on forever and it’s literally endless: go ahead and try to wrap your imagination around it all and good luck to you! Once this is Seen to be so…the inescapable conclusion that as we are absolutely and unequivocally a part of that same reality we also equally and unequivocally share in that same nature. In other words: we too are a mystery, a wonder, a wonder among wonders. What joy to become free of the greatest lie we were ever imprisoned by! This grotesque masquerade we’ve been forced to imagine and embody into being stands

Chemtrails, Terraforming Transhumanism and You
By Zen Gardner
hat most people are not allowing to coalesce in their consciousness is the grand scheme behind the so-called chemtrail program, also known on a more macro level as geoengineering. Geoengineering is an ongoing operation to steer and fabricate not only the world’s weather, but it’s food growing cycles, disasters, and the deliberate manipulation of economic and geopolitical trends, such as the weakening of governments and the placement of humanity to more controllable centres. Like any and all of these massive manipulative programs under way against humanity, these attack vectors have multi-fold purposes. We know the slow and steady depopulation of especially the northern hemisphere is under way via a variety of programs, from chemical and genetic sterilization to growing food scarcity and outright sickness inducement. Instead of government or international agencies working to actually help and heal humanity, their agenda is clearly documented as being one of human impairment and reduction in numbers, easily accessible information on this being available in UN documents and think tank papers for decades. Even more nefarious is the introduction of nanotechnology into a wide range of these assaults. While transhumanism has been successfully popularized and embedded into popular culture and the robotization of our workforce made fashionable, little do people realize that amongst the chemtrail particulates have been found intelligent nanoparticles designed to make the human body and any living organism a micro transceiver of information. (See CarnicomInstitute.com) Ray Kurzweil, major proponent of artificial intelligence and the mis-named singularity and human so-called transcendence to machine status with supposed infinite longevity, is even more Orwellian, is a top exec at the massive intelligence OP called GoogleInc. I say mis-named singularity as this term originally indicated a transition in consciousness and society when information met an apex in acceleration. They’ve

since bastardized this notion to say it would indicate the takeover by artificial intelligence. How convenient for those seeking maniacal control of absolutely everything. All of this speaks to the psychopathic depth of these control programs. In addition, the earth, our beloved Gaia, is being inundated with toxic influences meant to break any and every natural cycle there is. From changing the Schumann resonance of our planet to our genetic make up, weather, radiation levels and even magnetosphere, they will stop at nothing in their efforts to literally terraform our planet. As insane as that sounds, since it appears we all need to live here including these psychopathic engineers, this speaks to something much deeper and spiritually nefarious. For whom is this environment being changed? Is a grand experiment under way to create a survivable race of humanoids who can adapt to a toxic environment for the purpose of easy dominion by a very few? And from whence are these creatures who tolerate such an altered state, or think they can survive unscathed by their wicked, unnatural machinations? These are questions we should be asking when investigating these programs. If we cannot connect the dots, as creepy a picture as this information may imply, we won’t be able to confront never-mind expose the depths of manipulation and control to which we’re being subjected. Identifying the obvious, such as the chemical invasion of our skies, is just the beginning. They are trying to keep us at bay by drawing the line there as they do at every level of projected information. Let’s take this investigation and exposure to its full extent on every front. There is an overall program humanity needs to wake up to before we can begin to counter it. But always remember, our awakening of eternal consciousness is the ultimate ‘weapon’ and solution. Get there first, and the rest will be evident. Much love, Zen Gardner www.zengardner.com Read more of Zen’s original articles on his Timeline (www.zengardner.com/timeline/) And be sure to get his new hit book, You Are the Awakening, available on Amazon.com www.zengardner.com/zens-book-you-arethe-awakening-now-available/
Global Chemtrail Summit
any refer to it as geoengineering, others call it chemtrails, whether it’s atmospheric aerosols or persistent linear cirrus cloud formations, terminology is a minor detail when all you need to do is look up and have a critical mind on what you observe. The ongoing crime against humanity in our skies is a complex and multifaceted approach to a nefarious, felonious and outright evil agenda. A layered story unfolds when one actually begins to take an interest into what is actually happening globally with chemtrails. The engineered drought of California is just the tip of the iceberg as the societal conditioning to a much bigger plan reveals itself. Chemtrails have now been posed as the solution to global warming and the media pushes the concept as the masses are spoon-fed a truth that is none other than falsehoods. The normalization of human climate intervention is a desperate attempt to condition the public to an already ongoing scheme. Even more sinister is the runaway top secret, black ops programs utilizing Tesla technology to own the weather and distribute frequency waves to the public in order to alter brain wave signatures. Not to mention the aerosol nano-dust, hyper advanced nanotechnology that has been administered to the public without consent and again with mal intent. With all these unwanted truths, activists in the chemtrail community continuously strive to make their voices heard. This year activists have come together to reach the masses in Vancouver, Canada, to host the first annual Global Chemtrail Summit. This conference of the like-minded is open to anyone and will bring together a confluence of scientists, researchers, activists and local concerned Canadians. The summit is free (donations at the door) and lunch will be catered, as well ther will be musical guests following the day of speakers and socials. The conference will be formatted Past,
Present and Future. The speakers covering the Past will begin speaking at 9AM promptly, please be early to ensure a seat. The speaker line-up is an impressive coalition of devoted activists from around the globe. Patrick Roddie, a researcher out of San Francisco will be speaking as he did at the E.P.A hearing in Washington D.C last summer. His website www.stopsprayingus-sf. com is a go-to reliable information source for those seeking truth on the subject. Another great resource for information is www.byebyebluesky.com , a Canadian group who presents facts and reliable resources to the chemtrail activist community. Out of Wolfhampton, U.K, Harry Rhodes will be presenting at the conference as well. Harry is the world leader in orgone ether energy technology, and follows in the footsteps of Wilhem Reich and presents a unique take on how the weather manipulation occurs and what we can do to stop the spraying. Christopher Fontenot is ex-U.S military and will be presenting on his expertise: electromagnetics. Meteorologist Scott Stevens of www.weatherwars. info will also be giving a presentation on chemtrails and the groundbreaking discoveries he has made studying the phenomenon. Activist Terry Lawton out of Ireland and Max Bliss from Paris are also slated to speak with researcher Eric Cypher and activist Amanda Baise. The event is being hosted by activist and filmmaker Matt Landman of Actual Activists and will continue as an annual global conference 2017 in Portland, Oregon and 2018 in Berkeley, California. “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world.
