This is at the very forefront of our lives right now... each and everyone's of us! THIS is the very area where we need to take our own Power back NOW! If we lose this very front, then we've lost the whole Game....
In order to be able to gon with our lives, following our own bliss as described here below in "The Path of Authencticity, we HAVE TO win this "GROWING our OWN FOOD" Battle....and make no mistake it IS a Battle! We can choose three different approaches: Leave it as is right now = LOSE!.... or (if need be ) FIGHT for our God-given Right or just make a sidestep and just do the things we need to in order to go on and grow our own Food.
People all over the World are in ever greater --exponentially growing-- numbers choosing Choice Three: just go ahead and find ways to do our own growing possible -- as far as finding even the smallest of land plots, where it can be done!

To my Friends; HOW TO Mentally grow or multiply GOOD THINGS, that you want and mentally shrink problems to move past them / remove them /dissolve them completely! ....
Is this Cool -or what! I just recently had this "mentally" -ideas given to me:
Mentally make BIGGER /and /or more of all those Things you want more of in your Life by ; imaging a CONTAINER for your money-or your Overall TREASURE-CHEST, where money / Good Things "just multiplies" -"out of blue", so to speak!... !...and, be sure to make it as big as you want. See how quickly --and easily you can let it get double in size! ...and notice how big THAT is... that will give you a clue how "ready" you are for money/ANY treasures to come your way.... ( when I say money, it stands also for Barter, Trade, "Just "by Magic" ...ah...U get the drift, eh? )
So here below you have this other great idea: how shrink/dissolve problems. both private and ones we all are subject to .... like those orchestrated by our Idiots in the Power Houses!....
Anyhooo... have fun!...and NEVER forget that YOU make the DECISIONS for ALL that makes up YOUR LIFE!!!.... just because the Idiots decide ONE thing...if it is idiotic in your opinion , doesn't mean you/we have to choose to let it happen... /we can and must/ DECIDE DIFFERENT and STICK to THAT, y/our own --BETTER-- image/envisioning instead! ( I'm not all that good at this yet, but I'm working on it!.... Daily!... Good Things are starting to happen ever more!.... 8-) :-)
I received this from Mike Brescia today. Enjoy,everybody. Have fun with these ideas!.... and let me know!...willyah?
Love /Astrid/ :-)
I get so many e-mails from all over the world every week
from people who say they feel like they just can't go on...
they fail at everything... they can't do anything right...
that circumstances or conditions around them have not made
life easy for them.
Well, if you've been reading my newsletters for a while,
you know that, over the course of my life, I've failed at
as many or more things than I've succeeded at. When it
comes to making a mistake - well, in my life, I've made
And I hope that continues. Truly.
Because I look at things differently now.
Because to grow and succeed big, you need to stretch your
Do I still make mistakes? Sure. Still fail at things?
Absolutely. Everyone does.
But now, every time I get thrown for a loop, I immediately
jump up. I shrink the problem down in my mind to make it
look small and easy to handle. I ask myself what I should
learn from it. And if I have to, I start completely over.
Because (and I know this is so cliche') mistakes are
really opportunities in disguise.
In your own life, the way you instantly respond to
setbacks and adversity will predict how successful you'll
be. So many of us think about doing or acting on
something, but get sidelined by some unforeseen
Then panic sets in. Palms start to sweat. Immediately
those programmed, habitual negative thought patterns in
your mind start going into overdrive...
"I can't make a mistake or that's it. I'm done."
"Everyone will laugh at me..."
"They must think I'm so stupid..."
"See. I knew that wasn't going to work..."
These kind of thoughts and beliefs come in milliseconds.
Most people aren't even aware that they have them.
Or they are just accepted as fact, nothing than can be
changed or altered in any way.
These negative thoughts and attitudes (Mental Pattern of
Failure #9) means you'll miss the real opportunity that's
passing right in front of you. And that's a shame.
Our research shows is that this failure pattern is a kind
of built in mechanism... built into us humans from birth
that only a small percentage of naturally don't have or
learn to overcome.
So when most people do something that isn't correct,
experience delays or some kind of setback, their minds blow
it up so that it looks and feels bigger and harder to fix
than it really is.
And the next thing that most people's minds do - and this
is a natural and programmed in response -- is to blow the
problems/ delays/ setbacks up even further (Mental Failure
Pattern #10), where they immediately start imagining
terrible consequences of the situation. Even far beyond
what could or should happen.
This creates stress, anxiety, worry and panic.
And this creates even more stress, affects performance and
overall, has devastating health effects and shortens life
So in order to be more effective (or effective at all) in
life, to be happier every day and even to lengthen your
lifespan, you must be able to see "problems" and mistakes
You must shrink them down, put them behind you, see them
as learning opportunities instead of reasons why your life
sucks or as reasons why you'll fail.
Successful, effective happy people do this as habit.
That is what Think Right Now http://www.thinkrightnow.com
programs are designed to do, and are so effective at ...
...to condition your moment-by-moment thoughts to put
mistakes, delays, and setbacks in their proper perspective.
They happen all the time - to all of us.
That is why we have such remarkable successes with people
who have never felt terrific or who have never achieved
anything worthwhile. Because our clearing/releasing
process helps you let go your negative patterning so
they're easier to overcome.
Then, they replace the self-defeating thoughts, attitudes
and behaviors with the ability to "brush off" distractions,
even change the meaning of temporary setbacks in your mind -
and see them as remarkable learning opportunities..
When things go wrong, they no longer rattle you. Fear and
panic? None. Doubt? Nowhere to be found.
In short, you start to think and act like a habitual
winner, like a person who is used to achieving and getting
what they want.
Just hit the play button. Read and write the statements as
noted in the manual. And those tasks and goals that
"looked" impossible will suddenly seem... almost easy.
Look for your next best opportunity right here:

" Stand Up to Corporate Power:
Living Wealth: Better Than Money ."
by David Korten
"If there is to be a human future, we must bring ourselves into balanced relationship with one another and the Earth. This requires building economies with heart.
f we are to slow and ultimately reverse the social and environmental disintegration we see around us, we must change the rules to curb the pervasive abuse of corporate power that contributes so much to those harms.
Taming corporate power will slow the damage. It will not be sufficient, however, to heal our relationships with one another and the Earth and bring our troubled world into social and environmental balance. Corporations are but instruments of a deeper social pathology revealed in a familiar story our society tells about the nature of prosperity.
Empire Prosperity Story
The prevailing prosperity narrative has many variations, but these are among its essential elements:
* Economic growth fills our lives with material abundance, lifts the poor from their misery, and creates the wealth needed to protect the environment.
* Money is the measure of wealth and the proper arbiter of every choice and relationship.
* Prosperity depends on freeing wealthy investors from taxes and regulations that limit their incentive and capacity to invest in creating the new jobs that enrich us all.
* Unregulated markets allocate resources to their most productive and highest value use.
* The wealthy deserve their riches because we all get richer as the benefits of the investments of those on top trickle down to those on the bottom.
* Poverty is caused by welfare programs that strip the poor of motivation to become productive members of society willing to work hard at the jobs the market offers.
This money-serving prosperity story is repeated endlessly by corporate media and taught in economics, business, and public policy courses in our colleges and universities almost as sacred writ. I call it the Empire prosperity story.
Few notice the implications of its legitimation of the power and privilege of for-profit corporations and an economic system designed to maximize returns to money, that is, to make rich people richer. Furthermore, it praises extreme individualism that, in other circumstances would be condemned as sociopathic; values life only as a commodity; and diverts our attention from the basic reality that destroying life to make money is an act of collective insanity. In addition to destroying real wealth, it threatens our very survival as a species.
Earth Community Prosperity Story
Consider these elements of a contrasting life-serving prosperity story that looks to life, rather than money, as the true measure of wealth.
* Healthy children, families, communities, and ecological systems are the true measure of real wealth.
* Mutual caring and support are the primary currency of healthy families and communities, and community is the key to economic security.
* Real wealth is created by investing in the human capital of productive people, the social capital of caring relationships, and the natural capital of healthy ecosystems.
* The end of poverty and the healing of the environment will come from reallocating material resources from rich to poor and from life-destructive to life-nurturing uses.
* Markets have a vital role, but democratically accountable governments must secure community interests by assuring that everyone plays by basic rules that internalize costs, maintain equity, and favor human-scale local businesses that honor community values and serve community needs.
* Economies must serve and be accountable to people, not the reverse.
I call this the Earth Community prosperity story because it evokes a vision of the possibility of creating life-serving economies grounded in communities that respect the irreducible interdependence of people and nature. Although rarely heard, this story is based on familiar notions of generosity and fairness, and negates each of the claims of the imperial prosperity story that currently shapes economic policy and practice.
The High Cost of Making Money
It took me many years in my work abroad as a member of the foreign aid establishment to wake up to the fallacy of the Empire story—the idea that advancing economic growth by maximizing returns to money is the key to ending poverty and healing the environment. The epiphany came during a conference in Asia at which nongovernmental organizations were presenting case studies of the social and environmental consequences of large aid-funded development projects undertaken to promote economic growth. In case after case, the projects displaced poor people and disrupted essential environmental processes to produce benefits for those already better off.
Eventually I came to realize that conventional economic growth indicators rarely measure growth in human prosperity. Rather, they measure the rate at which the rich are expropriating the living resources of the planet and converting them to products destined for a garbage dump after a brief useful life. The process generates profits for people who already have far more money than they need while displacing people from the resources they need for their modest livelihoods. In summary, the primary business of the global financial system and the corporations that serve it is to increase the wealth gap. It works well in the short-term for the privileged few, but it is disastrous for the society.
We see the effects in the current state of the world. The market value of global economic output has tripled since 1970. By conventional reckoning, this means we humans have tripled our wealth and well-being.
Yet indicators of living capital, the aggregate of human, social and natural capital, tell a very different story. The Living Planet Index, an indicator of the health of the world's freshwater, ocean, and land-based ecosystems, declined 30 percent since 1970. According to the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment, 15 of 24 ecosystem services examined “are being degraded or used unsustainably, including fresh water, capture fisheries, air and water purification, and the regulation of regional and local climate, natural hazards, and pests.”
Indicators of human capital—the skills, knowledge, psychological health, capacity for critical thought, and moral responsibility characteristic of the fully functioning person, and of social capital—the enduring relationships of mutual trust and caring that are the foundation of healthy families, communities and societies—point to equally unfavorable trends.
Even as living capital shrinks, the population that depends on it continues to grow. Meanwhile, the growing concentration of money means a few people are able to claim an ever-larger share of a shrinking pie of living capital to the exclusion of everyone else. According to a recent United Nations study, the richest 2 percent of the world's adults own 51 percent of all global assets. The poorest 50 percent own only 1 percent. This distribution of ownership is a measure of the global distribution of power—and the gap is growing at an accelerating rate. The power imbalance allows the privileged minority to change the rules to accelerate their expropriation of the declining pool of real wealth, which increases the hardship and desperation of those excluded. We are on a path to an increasingly violent last-one-standing competition for the Earth's final tree, drop of drinkable water, and breath of air.
By our measures of financial capital, we humans are on a path to limitless prosperity. By the measures of living capital, we are on a suicidal path to increasing deprivation and ultimate self-extinction.
Putting Life First
If there is to be a human future, we must bring ourselves into balanced relationship with one another and the Earth. This requires turning existing economic priorities and models on their head and making the values of the Earth Community story the foundation of our economy. We must:
1. Turn from money to life as the defining value, from growing financial capital to growing living capital, and from short-term to long-term investing;
2. Shift the priority from advancing the private interests of the few to advancing the individual and community interests of all; and
3. Reallocate resources from supporting institutions of domination to meeting the needs of people, community, and nature.
We have enormous potential to improve the lives of all by reallocating resources from military to health care and environmental regeneration, from automobiles to public transportation, from investing in suburban sprawl to investing in compact communities, from advertising to education, from financial speculation to productive investment in local entrepreneurship, and from providing extravagant luxuries for the very wealthy to providing basic essentials for everyone.
The champions of Empire dismiss any such reordering of priorities on the ground that it will bring economic disaster and unbearable hardship. They ignore the simple fact that those results are already the lot of roughly half our fellow humans. The proposed reordering can avoid the spread of hardship and begin to alleviate the existing suffering.
Economic reallocation and democratization are no longer simply moral issues. They are imperatives of human survival and must replace economic growth and the pursuit of financial gain as the defining purpose of economic life.
The human species has reached a defining moment of choice between moving ahead on a path to collective self-destruction or joining together in a cooperative effort to navigate a dramatic turn to a new human era.
The work of bringing forth a new economy devoted to serving the needs of our children, families, communities, and natural environments begins with building public awareness that there is an Earth Community prosperity story that offers a vision of hope and possibility for a positive future. Although a story so contrary to the prevailing Empire story is likely to be greeted with initial skepticism, the Earth Community prosperity story enjoys the ultimate advantage because it expresses the truth most of us recognize in our hearts: if our children, families, communities, and natural systems are healthy, we are prosperous. Whether conventional financial indicators like GDP or the Dow Jones stock index rise or fall is irrelevant.
Rules for Conserving and Sharing
To get from where we are to where we need to go we must recognize that the market is an essential and beneficial institution for allocating resources in response to individual choices. But it is beneficial only so long as it operates by rules that maintain equity and competition and require players to internalize the social and environmental costs of their choices. And it is not sacred. Without responsible governmental oversight, the market can lead to highly destructive social pathology.
By its nature, the market creates winners and losers. Furthermore, the winners are often those most skilled in finding ways to pass social and environmental costs onto others. The winners increase their share of the resource pie, which increases their economic and political power to shape markets and rules to improve their future prospects. The result is a self-reinforcing spiral of increasing concentration of wealth and power. This supports the unjust hoarding and profligate consumption of resources by a privileged class. In an increasingly environmentally constrained world, learning to conserve and share resources is an essential requirement of social order and well-being.
Even with adequate regulation to minimize social and environmental abuse, the health of a market system also requires public intervention to recycle financial capital continuously from winners to losers. In the absence of such recycling, financial wealth and power accumulate in perpetuity, increasing the fortunes of a few family dynasties at the expense of democracy, justice, and social stability.
Recycling financial wealth to maintain a democratic allocation of access to real resources is, of course, totally contrary to the self-serving logic of corporate capitalism. Yet it is essential to democracy and social health, both of which depend on an equitable distribution of power, and an essential function of democratic government.
From a system-design perspective, a healthy society must either eliminate profit, interest, and for-profit corporations altogether, or use the taxing and regulatory powers of publicly accountable democratic governments to strictly limit concentrations of economic power and prevent the winners from passing the costs of their success onto the losers. This creates yet another system design issue. As government becomes larger and more powerful, it almost inevitably becomes less accountable and more prone to corruption.
Paul Hawken has correctly observed that big business creates the need for big government to constrain excesses and clean up the messes. To maintain equity and secure the internalization of costs, democratically accountable government power must exceed the power of exclusive private economic interests. The smaller the concentrations of economic power, the smaller government can be and still maintain essential balance and integrity in the society.
There will be less need for a strong governmental hand to the extent that we are successful in eliminating sociopathic institutional forms, making community-based economies the norm, and creating a public consensus that predatory economic behavior now taken for granted as “just human nature” is actually aberrant and immoral. Responsible citizenship may then become the expected business norm. There will always be a need, however, for rules and governmental oversight to deal with what hopefully will be a declining number of sociopathic individuals and institutions who seek to profit at public expense.
Equalizing economic power and rooting it locally shifts power to people and community from distant financial markets, global corporations, and national governments. It serves to shift rewards from economic predators to economic producers, strengthens community, encourages individual responsibility, and allows for greater expression of individual choice and creativity.
The Essential Choice
The human species has reached a defining moment of choice between moving ahead on a path to collective self-destruction or joining together in a cooperative effort to navigate a dramatic turn to a new human era. The profound cultural and institutional transformation that is needed goes up against the short-term interests of the world's most powerful people and institutions. The barriers to what we humans must now achieve are daunting. By any rational calculation, the needed transformation is not politically feasible. Yet it is essential to human survival and prosperity, which means we must set ourselves to the task of figuring out how to make the impossible into the inevitable.

HIGH Time to LEARN this...and to understand the seriousness!...OR the seriousness of the CONSEQUENSIES if we choose NOT TO LEARN this lesson!
ALL humans on Earth are run/RULED by their own Psyche/Psychology! Some of us are a little more healthy, some are not so healthy, yet all are ARCHETYPAL in nature & (THAT is what makes a thief a thief, whether Green, Black, White, Jew or Buddhist etc!... bla bla bla... ) What makes a thief a thief is the fact that the person STEALS!... In other words; a GIVEN BEHAVIOUR!!!
...and WHO/What person/ality need to be in most control of everything and everyone around them???... I would say the most insecure, unsure of him/herself-personality. Such a personality in its mildest form we all have run into a thousand times: The narcissist! .... [ [link] ] and from there on t all goes downhill to ever worse!.... : PSYCHOPATH with a POSITION to kill, which ALL (true) Psychopaths LOOOVE to do... by proxy, of course.... they are all very keen on keeping their own physical hands clean at any time, in any issue; that's why a true 'Psycho' always makes SOMEONE else do their dirty jobs; including the MURDER-thing... but it IS there. ALWAYS!
And what better PLACE for POWER and CONTROL, than the Political higher Echelons.... where murdering ( a MINIMUM of ) a thousand, makes you a HERO, (any LESS than that, only makes you a Criminal!... and THAT is something a Narcissist nor a Psychopath are interested in being seen as! )
But let's just take a look at the mildest form of SICK PSYCHOLOGY; Narcissism, and HOW HARD THAT ALONE can --and IS -- disturbing our entire World Society: [link]
In our Every-day-life we call the Narcissist "BULLY" I am sure you all met a few!...
You think there is hope in these -political guys,that you are talking about; be they him, her, him or him.... They are ALL from the SAME ARCHETYPE-ASSYLUM!!!... for crying out loud!
Before the rest of Humanity is willing to get on with ITS (own) growth to emotionally ( = spiritually ) MATURE to responsible non-afraid GROWN UPS, there is very little hope; very little that we --as One United Entity-- can do.
ONCE we have grown up, then WE can and MUST FORCE ALL the Bullies/Cry Wolf Boys & gals to get a grip of themselves and grow up!
But as long as we are afraid of THEM (or look up at them as Something REAL and let them RULE ( US) they WILL!... just as their ILLNESS of the/ir Soul is ruling them! These people don't have anything real of LIFE supportive Character inside of them, that they can utilize to benefit neither themselves in their own lives, and let alone to be Leaders of others! THEY ARE ALL TAKERS!!!! ...and they take (away from you, me and Nature .... and then they take a little more away from you, me and Nature and then a little more!... THAT IS WHAT BULLIES DO!
IF we , Humanity don't get to SUSTAINABLE life style fast enough now, we will all be blown up into our smallest pieces possible: "Human "Molecules" (hehehe...) sad, but true!....
So.... WHAT is your suggestions we do in order to mature ourselves till the point where we stop being ruled by our fear of the Bully and instead ask/demand the Bully to grow up too????...
Jazzo, I hope I'm not being the Party Pooper here, but this IS the Sad Truth about our Human Condition and Social , Political, Socio political and most of all Spiritual Situation still today... Since "Spiritual" in MODERN lingo could be replace with the word "CREATIVE" (WITHIN the CONFINES of COSMIC Principles /Laws of and for ETHICAL behaviour, also understood as Cosmic/Meta Physics...) well....
I hope this will spread some New fresh light on how Things can be seen and understood --and analyzed.
The Next Last Day of -07 ; Dec 30
The Hopi were told each people were given something to contribute to humanity. Among other things, Creator gave to the First Nations responsibility was to provide an example of proper government and connection to nature. This was to mesh with the newcomers' talents of "fire", i.e., technology. Each was to contribute something, blended together properly. All parties are responsible for the present situation. Failure to acknowledge this makes it impossible for real peace to come to this land.
A workable solution must include members of all the tribes, a rainbow including all. Rebalancing is needed, not separation. Black Elk saw people of all races under one shining rainbow tent. There's a poem and prophecy by a Katooah Cherokee which envisions peoples of all races coming together as one Longhouse;
"WE ARE THE PEOPLE…" By Takatoka
"We are the People..." is the first poem we had ever written. It was given by Spirit on the Mountain of Manataka. It tells of our past, our present and future. The poem ends with a prophesy - for all that was will be again. We are the People of the Longhouse We are Spirits Dancing Upon our Mother Earth. Her heart the Drum is beating. We are Her Children. We are the Warriors. We follow the Sacred Path.
We are the People of the Longhouse. The Four Winds know us. Trees, birds and animals teach us. Sun and Moon share visions with us. The Stone people and waters are we. They all instruct our path to see.
We are the People of the Longhouse, Keepers of the Sacred Manataka The Great Gathering Place, Place of Peace for all who make pilgrimage To celebrate the Secrets of Grace.
We are the People of the Longhouse. We are Arapaho, Caddo, Pueblo, Navaho, Seminole Winnebago, and Eskimo. We are Apache, Hopi, Cree, Pawnee, Santee, Lumbee, Shawnee, Zuni, Miami, and Cherokee. We are Ojibwa, Oneida, Seneca, Chippewa, Omaha, Ottawa, Iowa and Kiowa. We are Quapaw, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Witchita, Kaw, and Catabaw. We are Dakota, Lakota, and Kituwah. We are Creek, Blackfeet, Comanche, Abenaki, Yuchi, Lenape, Shoshone and Potawatomi. We are Ute, Paiute, Aleuts, Inuit; Illinois and Iroquois. We are Brule, Hunkpapa and Yankton Sioux; Bannock, Wyandot, Mohawk, Sac and Fox, and Kickapoo. Cheyenne, Osage, and Yamasee.
We are them and they are we.
In the Valley of Manataka, 600 nations join hands in the Circle. The Spirit of Peace floats on air. Black, yellow and white man joins the miracle. Red man shows the way there.
Rainbow Woman lives at Manataka. Sister to White Buffalo Calf Woman, She sleeps in the deep of Mother Earth. Yet, she is the sign in the sky to show the way, Her colors are bright; to remind us of Grace as we pray.
We are the People of the Longhouse; The sacred fire of seven woods lifts our prayers on smoke. The Great Creator hears us. And, the Sacred Mountain awoke.
Shaking and trembling from the sleep. The mountain rumbles, big houses crumble Pushing hot waters from the deep People are in fear and some run like the deer But we, the People of the Longhouse, are humble and kneel to hear.
Great Creator speaks for Mother Earth. "I want Manataka back" The turn of the medicine wheel has come. The hot springs flow with one great crack, Sacred waters flow and we sing with the drum.
Great clouds of vapors emerge once more. Colorful rainbows leap from the mists. We walk the white cloud across the valley floor. There is only peace; and no shaking fists -- The spirit of Manataka has arisen once more.
The Valley has changed yet it is the same. There are no buildings to mar its face. Metal noise replaced with amazing grace. The Place of Peace - Manataka is its name. We forgive those who took Manataka away; and hid the waters for many days.
We come again for the healing breath of Nowasalon, They come for the healing herbs and healing red clay; We join hands and sing to the drum until dawn; They come for the healing crystal and to pray.
To give much thanks to the Creator above, We the People of the Longhouse ask blessing. He gives us beauty, everlasting peace, and love. So be it, we gather again to dance and sing.
If the people choose a path that separates them from Creator, and from each other, what hope is there for them? Must we have more Trails of Tears? Why not take the path laid out for us by Great Spirit through Black Elk and Manataka? Why not join with those of the other tribes who came together in the Longhouse Coalition ( http://www.longhousecoalition.org ), those willing to make amends with their Red brothers? Let's rebuild a Longhouse based (on:)
United we stand. Separate, we all fall. May we choose wisely.

These Poems were compiled & published on the Net somewhere ( I received them via e-mail from a friend of mine)
due all the "bruhaa" after Lakotas RECLAIMED their Right to their God-given Right to Sovereignty (which indeed is given to every thing ever born! ) & declared their Independence from the PRIVATELY OWNED CORPORATION , that calls itself the USA!..... ( if you (still ) have a Soc Sec. Number, that you depend on, YOU are their PROPERTY -as they see it!..... think about it!.... Do we all need to come together and do something about this " MESS" -or what! ( I do myself... but I am aware of this SCAM....and take it to account in every "situation" and weigh things, so to speak. I do not allow them to own me "just like that". But I would like to brake apart their entire stupid & thoroughly evil game! )

These are the Insights from Celestine Prophecy by James Redfield. . http://www.celestinevision.com/insights2.html
I think they are wonderful and want to help to spread them as far and wide as I can.
|THE FIRST INSIGHT . . . A CRITICAL MASS
A new spiritual awakening is occurring in human culture, an awakening brought about by a critical mass of individuals who experience their lives as a spiritual unfolding, a journey in which we are led forward by mysterious coincidences.
|THE SECOND INSIGHT . . . THE LONGER NOW
This awakening represents the creation of a new, more complete worldview, which replaces a five-hundred-year-old preoccupation with secular survival and comfort. While this technological preoccupation was an important step, our awakening to life's coincidences is opening us up to the real purpose of human life on this planet, and the real nature of our universe.
|THE THIRD INSIGHT . . . A MATTER OF ENERGY
We now experience that we live not in a material universe, but in a universe of dynamic energy. Everything extant is a field of sacred energy that we can sense and intuit. Moreover, we humans can project our energy by focusing our attention in the desired direction...where attention goes, energy flows...influencing other energy systems and increasing the pace of coincidences in our lives.
|THE FOURTH INSIGHT . . . THE STRUGGLE FOR POWER
Too often humans cut themselves off from the greater source of this energy and so feel weak and insecure. To gain energy we tend to manipulate or force others to give us attention and thus energy. When we successfully dominate others in this way, we feel more powerful, but they are left weakened and often fight back. Competition for scarce, human energy is the cause of all conflict between people.
|THE FIFTH INSIGHT . . . THE MESSAGE OF THE MYSTICS
Insecurity and violence ends when we experience an inner connection with divine energy within, a connection described by mystics of all traditions. A sense of lightness--buoyancy--along with the constant sensation of love are measures of this connection. If these measures are present, the connection is real. If not, it is only pretended.
|THE SIXTH INSIGHT . . . CLEARING THE PAST
The more we stay connected, the more we are acutely aware of those times when we lose connection, usually when we are under stress. In these times, we can see our own particular way of stealing energy from others. Once our manipulations are brought to personal awareness, our connection becomes more constant and we can discover our own growth path in life, and our spiritual mission--the personal way we can contribute to the world.
|THE SEVENTH INSIGHT . . . ENGAGING THE FLOW
Knowing our personal mission further enhances the flow of mysterious coincidences as we are guided toward our destinies. First we have a question; then dreams, daydreams, and intuitions lead us towards the answers, which usually are synchronistically provided by the wisdom of another human being.
|THE EIGHTH INSIGHT . . . THE INTERPERSONAL ETHIC
We can increase the frequency of guiding coincidences by uplifting every person that comes into our lives. Care must be taken not to lose our inner connection in romantic relationships. Uplifting others is especially effective in groups where each member can feel energy of all the others. With children it is extremely important for their early security and growth. By seeing the beauty in every face, we lift others into their wisest self, and increase the chances of hearing a synchronistic message.
|THE NINTH INSIGHT . . . THE EMERGING CULTURE
As we all evolve toward the best completion of our spiritual missions, the technological means of survival will be fully automated as humans focus instead on synchronistic growth. Such growth will move humans into higher energy states, ultimately transforming our bodies into spiritual form and uniting this dimension of existence with the after-life dimension, ending the cycle of birth and death.
|THE TENTH INSIGHT . . . HOLDING THE VISION
The Tenth Insight is the realization that throughout history human beings have been unconsciously struggling to implement this lived spirituality on Earth. Each of us comes here on assignment, and as we pull this understanding into consciousness, we can remember a fuller birth vision of what we wanted to accomplish with our lives. Further we can remember a common world vision of how we will all work together to create a new spiritual culture. We know that our challenge is to hold this vision with intention and prayer everyday.
|THE ELEVENTH INSIGHT . . . EXTENDING PRAYER FIELDS
The Eleventh Insight is the precise method through which we hold the vision. For centuries, religious scriptures, poems, and philosophies have pointed to a latent power of mind within all of us that mysteriously helps to affect what occurs in the future. It has been called faith power, positive thinking, and the power of prayer. We are now taking this power seriously enough to bring a fuller knowledge of it into public awareness. We are finding that this prayer power is a field of intention, which moves out from us and can be extended and strengthened, especially when we connect with others in a common vision. This is the power through which we hold the vision of a spiritual world and build the energy in ourselves and in others to make this vision a reality.
|THE TWELFTH INSIGHT . . . IS YET TO BE RELEASED
Nov. 9 -07
I have found a site,I think is one of the most important site on the entire Net. It is called Stateless Society and with that in mind I will post here a (longish) gtidbit from that site. I think this particular discussion is about the importance of healing the (so called) Political World Scenario. I agree with this one whole heartedly. See how your Heart responds to this: from: http://freeofstate.org/new/?page_id=23
“Civilization does not mean electric lights. It does not mean producing atomic bombs, either. Civilization means not killing people.”
~ Nichidatsu Fujii, Buddhist Nihonzan Miyohoji Temple, quoted in Columbus & Other Cannibals (1992) by Jack. D. Forbes, PhD, Professor Emeritus, University of California
Shall we live by love, that our species may survive –
or shall we live in fear, and suffer premature extinction.
This is the root question.
Can a human society, organized into Nation-States, which in the 20th Century collectively murdered an estimated (published) 231 million people, be called a “civilization?” Is there a better way for six billion human beings to organize their lives? What is the most urgent question we can ask about our survival?
“When faced with a radical crisis, when the old way of interacting with each other and with nature doesn't work anymore, when survival is threatened by seemingly insurmountable problems, an individual life form – or a species – will either become extinct or rise above the limitations of its condition through an evolutionary leap.” ~ Eckhart Tolle (A New Earth, 2005)
- If we destroy the Earth, how shall we live?
- What is the purpose of my life?
- What role does State-sponsored terrorism and war play in that purpose?
- Is our crisis moral-spiritual, or economic-political?
“Every violent act, no matter how complicated its reasons, has a final stage: someone has to pull the trigger or push the button. The most reliable way to eradicate violence is to start with this final stage – that is, with the individual's refusal to participate in violence. If there is no executioner, there will be no execution.” ~ Leo Tolstoy (1828-1910)
- So we question ourselves: would I pull the executioner's trigger - that is, would I myself be the executioner?
- Then, why with my income tax do I pay the executioner's hire?
- Why should I petition and plead and write letters against the war?
- Why not just stop paying for it?
FROM VELJIBHAI DESAI, A TRUE FRIEND OF MOHANDAS GANDHI
My Basic Convictions
Mahatma Gandhi's inspiring thinking on industries, combined with my practical experience of 30 years as Mechanical Engineer, has carved the following Basic Convictions into my heart.
1.) All the dreadful problems appearing nowadays in the world such as unemployment, hunger, exploitation, disparity, pollution, urbanization, war are direct result of heavy and centralized industries.
2.) Modern civilization based upon wasteful expenditure of natural resources is destined to end in near future.
3.) Twenty first century is not in the hand of centralized heavy industries. Undercurrent of decentralization has already started. By beginning of new century, the world will throw away the dogma of industrialization.
4.) Idea of “Everything under one roof” has become outdated. The process of splitting the bigger factories into small units has already started.
5.) Principles of more economic viability for bigger units are illusory. In fact, where social cost is considered, bigger units can never be viable.
6.) Giant complex technology has given rise to a complex way of living, due to which greed and selfishness have captured human minds and we have lost the way of happiness.
7.) Real happiness is possible only through simple living, which is possible through simple and small technology only. Complicated machinery makes simple things also complicated.
8.) World can live in peace and harmony only if we create self-sustained societies.
9.) When production is made for consumption and not for marketing, present theories of economics crumble.
10.) Small is possible at every stage, in every industry, in every country. Small is inevitable in every industry related to primary needs of the common masses in every country.
11.) Present tax collection system can exist only on centralized form of heavy industries. This facilitates and increases legalized robbery of people by governments.
12.) Transport is the curse of mankind. It facilittaes spreading of evils. Worldwide transport gives rise to worldwide exploitation.
Whenever I see aany big factory or industry, I am horrified to look at it, because it looks to me as demon threatening the extinction of humanity, its culture, its liberty, its ethics.
Whenever I see any tiny cottage industry, I am pacified to look at it, because it looks to me as God's blessing enriching the lifestyle of mankind, its culture, its liberty, its ethics.
“States are not agents of morality and peace. They are instruments of force, disruption, disorder, death, dismemberment and war, instigated by those who rule them, and command others. Peace is not brought by bombardment, shock and awe and machine guns.”
~ M.S. Rozeff, 29 October 2003
- Is non-violence possible in a society of Nation-States?
- Is non-violence possible without truth?
- Does the State respect life? Or does it promulgate death?
- Does the State reflect the true nature of man?
“Civilization does not mean electric lights. It does not mean producing atomic bombs, either. Civilization means not killing people.” ~ Nichidatsu Fujii
So we ask –
- Since the State is conceived in violence, maintained by violence, with its minions profiting from violence – is the State an instrument of civilization?
- How is a sane person, respecting the lives of others, to live?
“Love is what men live by.” ~ Leo Tolstoy
- How do we live, if not by Grace?
- What greater moral responsibility – and at once today's greatest moral crisis –than caring for Creation?
- Does the State – with its bombs, missiles and poison gas – care for Creation?
- Does the State promote Life, or deliver death?
“It is to this Truth that is God, non-violence and morality that man owes his first allegiance. This loyalty, this devotion, this consecration is higher than that owed to any institution of man.” ~ Mohandas K. Gandhi
- Does the State lie?
- Do I owe allegiance to this institution which lives by lies alone?
“The individual has a soul, but as the State is a soulless machine, it can never be weaned from the violence to which it owes its very existence.” ~ Mohandas K. Gandhi
- Leaving aside beliefs of soul, surely I do have a moral conscience.
- Since the State can never be weaned from violence, to which do I pledge my allegiance: organized massive violence, or the dictates of my conscience?
“He or she who supports a State organized in a military way – whether directly or indirectly – participates in sin. Each man takes part in the sin by contributing to the maintenance of the State by paying taxes.” ~ Mohandas K. Gandhi
- The State is the tool of mankind's violence. Should I support it?
- I pay tax to buy weapons for the Taliban (or the most recent thug-of-choice) – who later use those weapons to kill my countrymen. To whom does this make sense?
- For whom does it make dollars?
“Civil disobedience becomes a sacred duty when the State becomes lawless and corrupt.”
~ Mohandas K. Gandhi
So we ask,
- Does the State murder? Does it torture? Does it poison, waste and destroy?
- Do I pay taxes?
- In this way then, do I not finance murder, rape, torture and destruction?
- If someone passed a donation basket asking funds to go murder the infant child of his neighbor, would I contribute voluntarily?
- Do I then pay my taxes voluntarily?
- If I do so voluntarily, am I not a financier of murder?
- If I do not do so voluntarily, then am I other than slave?
“Must the citizen, ever for a moment, or in the least degree, resign his conscience to the legislator? Why has every man a conscience, then? I think we should be men first, and subjects afterward.” ~ Henry David Thoreau
- Is my personal conscience alienable?
- That is, can I assign my conscience and my will to another?
- Can any other person “represent” my personal conscience in decisions of war and peace, life and death of others?
- What then is “representative” government if not abdication of personal responsibility for decisions of life and death of other people?
- If it is not abdication of responsibility, or acquiescence to finance murder, then is it other than slavery?
“How does it become a man to behave toward this American government? I answer that he cannot without disgrace be associated with it.” ~ Henry David Thoreau
Thoreau wrote more than 150 years ago, before 600,000 were killed in the Civil War, before Hiroshima, before poison gas, before the genetic defects from Agent Orange and depleted uranium, before the unremitting global carnage of the American Imperium. So we ask, how does it now become a man to behave toward this American government?
“A wise man will not wish righteousness to prevail through the power of majority. There is but little virtue in the action of masses of men. “When were the good and the brave ever in a majority? “Is a democracy, such as we know it, the last improvement possible in a government? Is it not possible to take a step forward toward recognizing and organizing the rights of man? There never will be a free and enlightened State …until it comes to recognize the individual as a higher and independent power, from which all its own power and authority are derived, and treats him accordingly.” ~ Henry David Thoreau
So we ask, all other forms of governance having been tried and failed, and having entered an era of mind-boggling destructive technological power, is it not time to try self-governance? By which we mean voluntary non-coercive association and cooperation among free individuals, who are not subject to any external authority beyond that which they impose upon themselves by unanimous consensus-to-the-last-person?
Adin Ballou (1803-1890), American clergyman and nonviolence theorist, influenced both Tolstoy and Gandhi. He is here quoted below:
“Government has no rightful claim to the allegiance of man. The principle of Christian resistance is that evil can be overcome with good. Conscientious followers must never injure any human being, nor can they belong to any voluntary association, however orderly, respectable, or allowable by law or general consent that approves as commendable in practice, war, capital punishment, or any other personal injury.”
We ask, how does outright depraved torture and massive crimes against humanity sanctioned by the U.S. government measure against this standard of a Christian society?
We advance the question – does the accident of birth in America, and the “citizenship” thereby “conferred,” constitute one's belonging to a voluntary association?
- If it is not voluntary, am I free to leave it?
- If not free to leave it, am I not a slave? Or merely a prisoner?
- Do I own myself? Or, does the State own me?
“Hatred is never appeased by hatred in this world; by non-hatred alone is hatred appeased. This is an eternal law.” ~ The Buddha
“They hate us for our freedoms,” lies the President of all the liars as he unleashes a “War on Terror” that now threatens the very survival of humanity. Did the Buddha ever receive a greater confirmation?
- Who will say that this man's decisions “represent” his or her conscience?
- Who will say that this man – who proudly calls himself “The Decider,” and who has the power of planetary incineration at his fingertips – represents him or her?
- Did this head of a “representative” government hear the wails of dying infants in Iraq murdered by his decisions?
- Did he hear the screams of the thousands of women raped by his decisions?
- Whom does he “represent,” if not some darkness within human consciousness above which we all must rise, or die as a species?
- What if I don't trust you, who claims to be The Decider in my name?
- What if I don't believe your lies-unto-war?
- Why should I lay down my life – or send my children to murder and be murdered –for the sake of your lies?
- What if I am not afraid of your conjured “enemies?”
- What if I see my fellow man as friend and brother?
- Why then should I finance their murder?
- How do I rotate my anger at their mindless murderous destruction into love for the perpetrators while also acting to prevent their crimes against humanity?
“… during whose seventy-year reign of terror sixty million people died just from the regime's war on its own nation … I have observed here in Cavendish the sensible and sure process of grass roots democracy where the local population decides its problems on its own, not waiting for the decision of higher authorities. Alas, this we still do not have in Russia, and that is our greatest shortcoming. ~ Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn farewell, Cavendish (VT) town meeting, 1994
- Is not the American regime's global warfare machine waging war on “its own nation,” in that we are all together here as the one nation of humanity?
- What “higher authority” of the Nation State hears the voices from the grass roots of this common humanity?
- Who appointed this “higher authority” to make life and death decisions for any one of us, and also for all of us together?
- What is grass roots democracy?
- Why would I appoint a thug – himself a murderer – to “represent” me in decisions of war and peace?
- For example, nearly a fifth of India's currently sitting MP's stand indicted of crimes, including murder (Times of India, 16 July 2007). Correspondingly, in that other “great democracy” called America, the crimes of its legislators are rampant to the point of being legendary. How dare I admit these people “represent” me?
“The law will never make men free.” ~ Henry David Thoreau, Letters, 1860.
- The State calls its violence, Law, and the individual's, crime. What law?
- Whose law? What say did I have in making that law?
- Am I bound by law that was made in secret session, based on lies and secret information, without my consent, against my wishes, by persons unknown and unknowable to me, in violation of justice, common sense and ethics?
“And what are they going to forgive us for? For not dying of hunger? For not keeping quiet in our misery? For not accepting quietly the gigantic historic burden of contempt and abandonment? For not rising up in arms when all other roads were closed to us?” ~ Subcomandante Marcos in the Declaration of 1994 to President Salinas de Gortari.
- Who – in a world ruled by corporations – “represents” these Zapatistas, if not themselves only, as they rise up in defense of their land and their lives?
- Who can represent a people of the land except themselves?
- By what right does an urban legislator sitting in his air conditioned hall “govern” the lives of people on the land, so far away that he does not even speak their language?
- Who, in Washington or Delhi, can “represent” the conscience and the voices of women and children in Alakanuk or Venetie, Kalpatta or Dhankar?
“When your premise is ‘Thou shalt not kill,' you can skip a lot of boring and distracting discussion and just get to work [Improving yourself and the prospects for peace.]”
~ Alia Johnson
- What higher allegiance – to the murdering State, or to the heart of humanity and my own conscience, which clearly says do not kill?”
- Is it not an act of Love to refuse murder and the destruction of Goodness, Beauty and Truth?
- Why should I be subject to control and domination by people who apply their minds to lies and murder?
“Human intelligence has been distorted and misused by the ego. I call that intelligence in the service of madness. Splitting the atom requires great intelligence. Utilizing that intelligence for building and stockpiling atom bombs is insane. Stupidity is relatively harmless, but intelligent stupidity is highly dangerous. This intelligent stupidity, for which one could find countless examples, is threatening our survival as a species.” ~ Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth, 2005.
- Is a murdering, torturing, raping State qualified to educate and instruct our children on moral values and the ethics of living among mankind?
- What is the most important thing we can teach our children?
- Does the State not do the following things and act in the following manner?
- It governs us, which means we are coerced, controlled, watched, spied upon, inspected, directed, law-driven, numbered, enrolled, indoctrinated, checked, evaluated, censored, registered, counted, stamped, measured, assessed, licensed, authorized, forbidden, corrected, punished, exploited, fleeced, repressed, harassed, abused, judged, condemned, imprisoned, searched, seized, manipulated, brainwashed, restricted, rationed, interrogated, profiled, poisoned, engineered, displaced, devalued, conscripted for war and murder, separated from the beloved, conjoined with hatred, dehumanized and owned as chattel property by an assemblage of criminals calling themselves a government, who have neither right, nor wisdom, nor virtue to do these things.
Are these the actions of that peace and harmony which alone can permit our survival?
“All tremble at violence; life is dear to all. Putting oneself in the place of another, one should not kill nor cause another to kill.” ~ Dhammapada 130
- Is the State capable of providing security? (Look at its origins and the historical record).
- How can we protect ourselves from predation of the State?
- What is the meaning of peace? Can there be peace without liberty?
- What, actually, is the State?
- What is self-government?
- Should we grant control of our lives to an institution whose only moral code is force?
- What is a Constitution? Is it binding upon unborn posterity? Can one generation bind another to its debt, or its war?
- Is sovereign immunity a morally valid institution?
- Is the limited liability corporation a morally valid institution?
- Should corporations have the legal rights of living persons?
- Who owns the earthly biological commons, who decides, and who can participate in its disposition?
- Does a peaceful individual have the right to ignore the State?
“ If the history of humanity [the State] were the clinical case history of a single human being, the diagnosis would have to be chronic paranoid delusions, a pathological propensity to commit murder and acts of extreme violence and cruelty against his perceived enemies – criminally insane.” ~ Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth, 2005.
- Does an insane man have the right to put a collar and leash on me and control my movements?
- Does a group of criminally insane murdering thugs have this right?
- Then why does the State have the right to control my movements, my livelihood, my life itself with passports, visas, licenses, tax identification numbers, birth certificate?
- What are the natural, intrinsic, inalienable rights of the individual?
- What is the ethical relationship of individual to State? Is it benevolent?
- What are the limits of State power over the individual?
- Is there a valid contract between the State and an individual citizen?
- If so, how is it acknowledged?
- Absent a contract, what rights does an individual in fact have in the face of State power?
- What is the relationship between my ethics and that of the power structure over me?
- Is the Nation-State a good – or viable – plan for long term survival of humanity?
“The activity of an organism any living system must favor both the environment and the organism itself.” ~ A. N. Whitehead
“Survival is that which stays true to life longer than that which stays true not so long. Any physical being which by its influence deteriorates its environment, commits suicide.” ~ Gregory Bateson (Steps To An Ecology of Mind, and others)
- Is mankind morally fit to survive as a species? Do we sufficiently respect life?
- What are the responsibilities of human beings to other living beings and ecology of earth?
- What is our moral relationship with other living beings?
- What is the root cause of separation of ethics from politics?
- What is our deepest existential fear? Does an institutional solution actually exist?
- What is an ecologically sustainable economy? Is its foundation other than an ethic of respect for life?
- Is the internal combustion engine a good thing?
- Is a machine and technology based economy necessarily a good thing for all humanity?
- What is an ecologically sustainable political system?
- Is majority rule an act of violence?
- Why do we fear freedom?
- Is it possible to dismantle the present Nation-State peacefully?
I would ask you to now go the Latest Writing page, where I posted a "dialogue" with a friend online ( we are both members on NCN and blog holders there. His "Name" is "Vaxen" and mine is "a-d" ) It is a dialogue about this same website: "Stateless Society"
Oct. 03 -07
I just recently found these web-sites, all in one way or the other portarying enormous transformation/healing, people gone through, mostly by responding to (new ; "incoming") promptings of Priorities. The people took those promptings seriously -and voila! something GOOD, something much Better came out of it!
Check out for yourself and allow yourself to get inspired!
A VERY HEALING Poem that my friend & SoulSister Marissa, wrote just the other day.
Friday, August 17th 2007, by Marissa A Spencer
Sing to the Earth
Grandmother Earth hear me
You cradle the land and water
and watch your children grow
The winds laugh across the hills
as they stir the dust devils into the sky
Heal the broken spirit of your children
Bring to them the shining rainbow
Let them walk upon the land in beauty
May all our relations be in harmony
that we will speak in softer tones
And only raise our voices in song
Sing to the sun as the day rises
Sing to the moon as it lights the night
Sing to the stars that show our path
Sing to the earth, keeping it well
© August 16, 2007 Marissa A Spencer
Let this Poem/s Loving Words do its healing Magic on your Soul!
w/Love / Astrid
Today, Aug 10th, I have added a discussion I just had with my friends on New Civilization Network (newCiv.org, where I have been a member for four years.) I do so, because I think this particular Chat had so much important MESSAGES in it; messages /things that need to be understood - to even get started with any true healing on any broader scale. So, go below this Intrduction text and there it is -or go to Latest Writings page. It will be there too.
Personal: As we heal our Mind and Emotional body, we start healing the rest of us; our Intellect,
our habits and thus our body and we start feeling, living = expressing ever more our True Essence: the God-Spirit-Within = we start being The Divine Being that we are in (Cosmic) Reality.
The more we heal, the more we heal all around us; our relationships with ALL. Including Mother Earth. It all starts by simply CHOOSING to heal and start HELPING all Life around us. When we forget ourselves =our own (daily troubles), we find ourselves! It works the same way with troubles as with any other aches and pains we might have from time to time.
Did you know that the minute we forget e.g. our headaches it dissolves =”goes away.” The way any Pharmaceutical Painkillers work is by blocking the feeling of pain to give us a chance to forget the pain long enough ( 10 to 30 minutes) for it to dissolve! The pills don't heal us. All they do is make it possible for us to forget long enough our aches and pains. Life/our own Inherent Ability to heal does the rest! Emotional/social pain follows the same principles : forget it all long enough and Life/Our own Inherent Ability to heal, takes care of it for us!
Jesus said it all in His Times with the words: “Who forgets himself, finds himself.”
a) The more Local we are, the more Global we are! The more we heal our own Communities, the more other Communities will have a chance to heal -
for two good reasons:
a)we stop raping them for own selfish gain, and secondly; by observing our example, they will be inspired to do the same as they now have a model to follow, if they want to/need.
b) We demand Conscious Politics from Conscious Fellow-Beings! We have to fire all Career Politicians ( the more “career” the more they have to go!… like all the politicians /people in Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), Trilateral Commisssion etc. ) and start demanding accountability for their (past) actions.
The option is to sidestep them 100% . In order to do any of these, we have to start making their names and faces and their “resumes”/ “Portfolios” known to public.We do it / demand this to be done to the degree we have healed ourselves and are eager to heal our own Communities.
In this same Spirit we make the decicion to learn new Monetary Systems, that actually SUPPORTS our Community: ie. BARTER, our OWN -LOCAL- Money, that does NOT leave the Community at the end of the day, picked up by a corporate armored truck. (Let me give you an example: EVERY community -no matter how big or small- that has, for instance, a WalMart, an armored truck comes evey evening and takes out all that money at the end of the day and drives it to Arkansas, where the WalMart Headquartes are located. It is no longer in circulation in the community to be used to benefit its Locals!!!
This is the kind of oppression we should not accept BUT instead we need to send some of the Town's Own People to Communites, that already are very succesful in doing Business with their own LOCALLY printed money, like Itacha in New York http://www.itachahours.com or Madison in Wisconsin
Also, take a look at http://www.transaction.net Click on “How Money Systems Work”).
Statesmen, of the highest rank lest Presidents from Countries around the World, go to these communities to learn to set up Money Systems, copying Itacha(-hours) and similar, so why not we? Read more about this very topic on Itachahours' website: http://www.ithacahours.com/.)
Look up this site http://reactor-core.org Click on in article nr. 1 under “Hidden History” and you will learn how and how early in US-history USA was hi-jacked…. And by whom….. When done with this article, go back to "reactor-core.org" and under Hidden History read nr. 2 , 3 and 7;where you find several articles.
Once done with them all you have learned more about true History, than you learned in ten years in school, or even in College!Now it is time to start looking at the Net for New ways of living, since, Daily News won't tell us anything about it!… Here's some good ideas:
As you all, who already have read my book, know; our Happiness-“thing” (= our Cosmic Blueprint,) lies 180 degrees away from all the shoulds and should nots, that the Establishment puts on us. Armed with this New Knowledge; start writing down all the things that you are not pleased with/happy about in your life.
Very quickly you will be able to see what the New -Cosmic- Solution would be, that would allow you to be more YOU/expressing what you truly would love and would give you satifaction and make you feel like you truly contributed to Life -and your Community, which you DO, when you live true to yourself!
Sometimes it is easy to implement and most often not so easy…. That's where you write another list with all you WANT/how you want your life to be... YOUR life is all you can change. Really. But as you change your life, other will see it and get empowered by you/rcourage and Response Ability to all the goodness Life WANTS you / us all to have. Whenever you see/experience something that protects, defends and supports Life, send an e-mail about it. Soon you will start looking at life around you with New Eyes and you become a “Pro” in spotting where Good has already been put into action and where it could be! We will create a GOOD NEWS NETWORK; our base for a Network for Higher Consciousness on this web-site. Why not?!… and why get dragged down by the crapp and scare tactic- “News” that the Establishment owned = controlled Media has to offer?… No way! Let's focus on the GOOD we see and can do! Ready, set, go! The harch reality is that though starting to train our Awareness to see new -Positive- things, we ALSO need to learn to recognize the madness faster and with sharper eyes/Mind than ever before!!! For only when we know the madness, can we acknowledge the madness and choose not to fall prey to it anymore; not become its victims ever again, thus gaining that much more personal INVINCIBILITY!!! When we recognize the madness as described, i.e. here: http://www.barefootsworld.net/usfraud.html,
can we say: “Oh, no; you're not gonna pull that stunt on me/us again. Nooo wayyy, Jose !!!!!! ”

Now that we all are preparing us for Thee BIG Event ; "Fire the Grid" on Tuesday morning, it might make many of us to think: what -REALLY- is the KEY to Healing, Transformation? WHAT -exactly- is thee Thing that unlocks the PROCESS???... IS there SOMETHING, that does it -or????..... I think there is!and I think it is something almost ridiculously simple: Our DECISION to truly LET "IT" HAPPEN! What ever this "It" happens to be at any given time; Decision puts It into motion!
h a strong Local ( socio-political ) Body truly working FOR the Community and ALL its Members,
including environment / Nature and Animals wild and domesticaed ones, then envision this be the case in ALL Communites all over the World! If perfect, healthy teeth or hair or heart or skin or vision or any other human physiology issue is spontaneously your forte`, then see that being the same for all the rest of God's Creatures, Great & Small, as the saying goes..If you have a really happy family life with prosperity and good health, living in a wonderful Home with happy healthy Children, then see that being the same for/with ALL people; two legged -as well as four legged ones (and winged and scaled etc)In other words: take on that part that is already yours and envision that for ALL the rest of us! This way "Things" don't get too hard and overwhelming, but easily manageable and hence more pleasant to do! This Principle is the same as the Blessing Principle: Whatever we (ask God to ) bless grows , so to speak. When we (ask God to ) bless Something we ask the Divine in that to expand, grow ( to be so even ) more (Good, Divine) May God/Life/Universe( -or Whatever Name you prefer to use for the Cosmic Power& Intelligence Who lends us all LIFE)
