IN SPITE OF GREAT ADVANCES IN FORMAL METHOD IN SOCIAL SCIENCE, MUCH OF THE UNDERSTANDING OF PERSISTING AND GENERAL RELATIONSHIPS DEPENDS UPON A GRASP THAT IS TOTALLY INDEPENDENT OF SOME FORMAL METHOD. IN ADVANCING SOCIAL SCIENCE, WE INVENT AND PRACTICE TECHNIQUE AND CULTIVATE A HUMANISTIC ART. (Robert Redfield)

For the Starseeds


The ground beneath you is shaking. Can you feel it? We are the change. We will all be dancing soon enough. Victory of the light!

Lyrics:

We come into this world unknown
But know that we are not alone
They try and knock us down
But change is coming, it's our time now

Hey everybody loses it
Everybody wants to throw it all away sometimes
And hey, yeah I know what you're going through
Don't let it get the best of you, you'll make it out alive
Oh, people like us we've gotta stick together
Keep your head up, nothing lasts forever
Here's to the damned to the lost and forgotten
It's hard to get high when you're living on the bottom

Oh woah oh oh woah oh
We are all misfits living in a world on fire
Oh woah oh oh woah oh
Sing it for the people like us, the people like us

Hey, this is not a funeral
It's a revolution, after all your tears have turned to rage
Just wait, everything will be okay
Even when you're feeling like it's going down in flames

Oh, people like us we've gotta stick together
Keep your head up nothing lasts forever
Here's to the damned, to the lost and forgotten
It's hard to get high when you're living on the bottom

Oh woah oh oh woah oh
We are all misfits living in a world on fire
Oh woah oh oh woah oh
Sing it for the people like us, the people like us

Oh woah oh oh woah oh
You've just gotta turn it up loud when the flames get higher
Oh woah oh oh woah oh
Sing it for the people like us, the people like us

They can't do nothing to you, they can't do nothing to me
This is the life that we choose, this is the life that we bleed
So throw your fists in the air, come out, come out if you dare
Tonight we're gonna change forever

Everybody loses it,
Everybody wants to throw it all away sometimes

Oh, people like us we've gotta stick together
Keep your head up nothing lasts forever
Here's to the damned, to the lost and forgotten
It's hard to get high when you're living on the bottom

Oh woah oh oh woah oh
We are all misfits living in a world on fire
Oh woah oh oh woah oh
Sing it for the people like us, the people like us

Oh woah oh oh woah oh
You've just got to turn it up loud when the flames get higher
Oh woah oh oh woah oh
Sing it for the people like us, the people like us

Oh woah oh oh woah oh
We're all misfits living in a world on fire
Oh woah oh oh woah oh
Sing it for the people like us, the people like us

Oh woah oh oh woah oh
You've just got to turn it up loud when the flames get higher
Oh woah oh oh woah oh
Sing it for the people like us, the people like us

Indigenous Wisdom for Living Responsibly


The Wholeness of Life

Kanyini is best expressed in English as the combination of the two words ‘Responsibility’ and ‘Unconditional Love’, but it is actually a relationship; it is an enormous caring with no limit – it has no timeframe: it is eternal. – Uncle Bob Randall

In our modern times, we are faced with the greatest challenges in human history. Never before has our conscious evolution been so required. There is growing consensus that we need to change and learn to work together for the solutions to address these challenges.

We know in our hearts that technology is not the sole solution. Somehow, we understand that a much deeper shift is needed, and sometimes we can feel this as an aching pain in our hearts and sorrow in our minds. Many of us do not feel whole and it may seem difficult to even experience a sense of peace in a world that demands us to constantly divide and be fragmented.


It is difficult for us to feel whole in a world that demands us to constantly divide.

Many of us feel trapped in social-economic systems that give no meaning to the quality of our life or our intrinsic worth. It is not surprising that so many of us burn out; our inner flame slowly fading, lost in systems that compromise the very nature of our being and our relationships.

False Dream of Progress

By living in a world that designs its activities around clock-time, reducing natural cycles and rhythms to linearity, the pressure of this societal ‘dream of progress’ becomes unbearable.

In this constructed promise of ‘progress’, we are supposed to be better people, with more income, more social status, more achievements, more development, and more success in the future. And yet, deep in our hearts, we know that this dream is crashing.

Life is not linear; much of what we aim to achieve in this world of ‘progress’ has little meaning in the bigger context of life as a whole. And worse, this kind of progress has come at the expense of so many beings that were sacrificed for our pursuits for a ‘better life’.


Are we losing our connection to the natural world at the expense of progress?

This kind of ‘progress’ cannot fill our hearts with the sense of home that comes naturally by realising our communion with life and nature, in each of our relationships.

When faced with problems we often look to the future for answers in terms of new technologies and new inventions. Yet it is those very technologies and inventions that have trapped us. Perhaps our challenge today is to stop looking forward and, instead, look back to see the wisdom of the past? There we may find some of the answers we need.

Living Kanyini

Through this article, I would like to share with you some of the deep wisdom that I received from one of the oldest continuous living cultures: the Australian Aborigines. I had the great fortune to learn from, and about, them during my eight years of living in Australia from 1998-2006. Those years became the foundation for everything I do and share today.

Learning their ancient wisdom brought me back to my heart and gave me a sense of acceptance and love that I never experienced before in this human-made world of ‘progress’. It restored my sense of humanity and purpose and gave me strength to stay true to myself and my direct relationship with life.


Australian Aborigines hold deep wisdom as one of the oldest continuous living cultures.

I realised then that the solutions we seek are already within us. These solutions and medicines of the soul will only unlock when we come back to our connectedness with nature and life. We tend only to care for the worlds we feel a part of, yet how can we expect people to care for our natural world if we don’t experience our belonging and kinship with nature?

Living Wisdom

The Elders shared with me that they understood long ago that their purpose was to sustain the transmission of this living wisdom to the rest of our human family, until the time for the remembering and reconnection was called for, as it is now.

One of the Yankunytjatjara Elders and Custodian of the Uluru Sacred Heritage, also called Uncle Bob Randall, explains in this video below what it means to live from a deep sense of connectedness and relatedness with the whole ‘family of life’. This sense of connectedness is the foundation for Kanyini – unconditional love with responsibility.

The purpose of being on this Earth plane is to be of service to all that will be. Be willing to care for all things equally. – Uncle Bob Randall


Bob Randall explains what it means to be connected with the whole ‘family of life’.

Kanyini is based on four principles:

Ngura – A sense of belonging to home and land.
Walytja – Family connecting with life.
Kurunpa – Psyche, spirit or soul.
Tjukurrpa – Creation period, or also called the Dreamtime, and the right way to live.
Disconnection from Life as Family

When we look at the way humans have developed our modern societies, we can see how far we have moved away from these principles. To start with Ngura – many of us no longer feel like we belong to the natural world. Instead, we feel more and more divided, internally and externally.

It is becoming harder and harder these days to feel a sense of home and belonging where we can relax into the wholeness of our being. This madness of modern life emphasizes our worth only in terms of what we can produce and achieve, and not by who we are intrinsically or the land that supports us.

Many people are suffering from depression, and the trend for this is increasing. One of the Elders, who I met during my time in Australia, explained to me that many of our ‘modern’ mental diseases and other diseases are something they never had in their traditional life. This same Elder explained to me that they see the root causes of these dis-ease patterns stemming from the disruption of ‘oursness‘ and disconnection from ‘life as family.’

Spirit Nourishment

Walytja, reminds us that if our sense of kinship with life erodes, we lose our sense of connectedness and we can no longer receive Spirit nourishment directly from the land. It is this spirit nourishment, also called Kurunpa, that provides inner peace and sustainability for our whole self.

Kurunpa refers to psyche, spirit and soul, it is our spirituality, our true spiritual nature. Through our spiritual connection with life and each other we can draw deeply from the living wisdom of nature that can guide us through the darkest of times. When we experience life as family, irrespective of whether we are living in nature or in the city, our heart is sustained by a deep unconditional love that is always here for us.

If we only connect with life materialistically; devoid of any spiritual connection to home, land and other living beings, we are blocked from receiving this love. Our hearts need this inner nourishment, it provides our sense of connection and oneness. Without this nourishment we feel lost, lonely and without a sense of sacred purpose.


Our sense of kinship with life gives us spirit nourishment directly from the land.

The Whole of Life

By relating with all expressions of life as expressions of this larger Spirit that connects us all, it changes the way we relate with the natural world and restores our sense of wholeness. For many people, nature is now only a source of food and materials for things to make, own and consume. In that concept, there is no sense of sacredness and no gratitude for the sacrifices made by our living relatives of the natural world, like the animals, plants, trees, and insects.

When we have gratitude and deeply care for all living things, as shared by Uncle Bob earlier, we no longer just consume our relations. Instead, we honour our relations for their intrinsic worth by appreciating deeply the spirit of life that is also within each of them and their right to live.

It is by this gratitude and appreciation that we heal our own emptiness and restore our inner wholeness. This is the real food and nourishment that our souls and psyche long for.


Reconnecting to the Spirit that connects us all restores our sense of wholeness.

The Dreamtime

The beauty of Kanyini is that it reminds us that there is nothing we need to do or prove in order to gain acceptance from this unconditional love. Every day is another opportunity to restore and appreciate our connectedness with the wholeness of life. This love is not withheld from us when we move astray or lose our way. It embraces everything and everyone unconditionally.

The Aboriginal Elders teach that this deeper understanding of psyche, spirit and soul comes from Tjukurrpa. In English, Tjukurrpa has been translated as ‘the Dreamtime’. This refers to the teaching that creation is an ongoing process in a multi-dimensional universe based on sacred principles; laws, by which we remain connected through all time and space while changing form.

Tjukurrpa relates to the invisible world behind what we see and know as the created universe. From this comes the understanding of the right way to live in accordance with these universal Laws and principles. The Elders believe that this sacred knowledge was passed on via a process of transmission from the Ancestral beings to humanity, to guide us as custodians for this world.

The Dreamtime teaches us to live according to sacred Laws. Painting by Colleen Wallace Nungari.

We are all visitors to this time, this place. We are just passing through. Our purpose here is to observe, to learn, to grow, to love…and then we return home. – Aboriginal Proverb

Sacred Law and Universal Principles

In our modern societies, the concept of ‘sacred law’ and the right way to live is not taught and transmitted to our children. Accordingly, many people do not know what it means and how to live their life by these core universal principles.

Yet the consequences of our modern ways of life show that whether we believe in Tjukurrpa or not, the effects of our actions on the web of life and our own sense of happiness and purpose is real. By becoming aware of these universal principles we learn how to balance, heal and restore our sense of inner worth and sacred communion with all life.

These sacred laws and universal principles of Kanyini can be observed in the way things unfold. We start to experience this directly by listening closely to nature, and by allowing our heart to guide our knowing. These principles were not created by anyone, they are not mental constructs. By living in close relationship with the wholeness of life we start to see these laws and principles as a foundation for all that is unfolding within our created worlds.

Become aware of Kanyini and restore your unity with all life. Painting by Jandamarra Cadd.

You are All That

You may ask, but how do I live in close relationship with the wholeness of life? This starts simply by remaining attentive to your whole self: your feelings, thoughts, dreams, desires, the quiet voice within, the spiritual presence both within YOU and all around you. By becoming aware first that you are ‘all that’, you can then start to see if there is any way that you divide, suppress, control or fragment these various qualities of yourself.

If you do notice inner division, gently ask yourself, why? What do you believe is so important that you need to do that to yourself? Then consider, why you would do this if life does not ask you to compromise your inner being, nor does it ask you to compromise the inner being of others. Through these inner enquiries, gentle observations, and deep listening, you slowly become aware of the universal wisdom principles of Kanyini that restore our wholeness, and our perception of unity with all life.

The Natural Origins of Supernatural Experiences


Transcendent experiences that were once attributed to gods, angels, muses, or even possession, are now being demystified by neuroscience. Jamie Wheal, Director of Programs at the Flow Genome Project, explains that each culture has unique rituals and narratives when it comes to non-ordinary experiences of consciousness or 'altered states', whether that's mediation, flow state, psychedelic experiences, or others.

A farmer in India, a peasant in Mexico, and a coder in Silicon Valley will all have vastly different ways of approaching altered states, and will give vastly different descriptions once they come out the other side - perhaps they saw a vision of Ganesh the elephant God, received a message from the Virgin of Guadalupe, or produced a brilliant line of code while in a Matrix-like binary blur.

However, those experiences are more alike than we think.

Jamie Wheal and Steven Kotler devised a functional framework so they could compare non-ordinary experiences across cultures.

Here, Wheal explains that they identified four common elements of altered states of consciousness, which they coined as STER:

selflessness, timelessness, effortlessness and richness.


So when you're considering non-ordinary or altered states one of the first questions is,

What do they feel like?

What's actually going on in those places and spaces?

And one of the challenges in coming up with a good and consistent answer, not just for a specific state like meditation or a flow state or a psychedelic the state is, what qualities do they all share?

Because each of those communities of practice over decades, centuries and even the millennia have accumulated their own storytelling or content about what the state they access are, what they mean and where you're supposed to go through them.

So for instance, if you were a Buddhist meditator you will be instructed in all sorts of stages and levels and progressions of non-ordinary states of consciousness ranging from waking state all the way to white light void to Buddha consciousness, et cetera.

I if I am a peasant farmer in India and I have a non-ordinary state experience I might experience Ganesh, the elephant God in a rice patty.

If I'm a peasant in Mexico I might experience the version of Guadalupe Hidalgo. If I'm coder in Silicon Valley I might experience the matrix and code mode, this is ones and zeros streaming all night as I bang away on my keyboard.

And the reality is is that underneath those experiences are far more alike than the wrapping paper, the narrator wrapping paper of what people see based on culture, custom and biography.

And what we attempted to do was create a functional framework that lets us talk about these things as apples to apples and really see the similarities.

And what we realize is that because of the neurobiology there are four qualities that tend to arise pretty consistently regardless of which door you go through to get into these non ordinary states.

And they are selflessness, timelessness, effortlessness and richness or STER for short.

A Priest, A Rabbi, And An Atheist Smoke Weed. Watch What Happens…


Does religion truly divide? Or can people find common ground with each other, particularly after smoking a joint?

What sounds like the introduction to a corny joke is actually the description of an event which recently took place. Fortunately for folks around the world, the meeting was recorded by Cut, which has produced numerous videos of diverse individuals getting high on marijuana (such as “Grandmas smoke pot for the first time”).

Recorded in Washington state where recreational marijuana is legal, the video features rabbi Jim Mirel, who is the Rabbi Emeritus at Temple B’nai Torah in Seattle, Rev. Chris Schuller, who once served as the rector at St. Thomas’ Episcopal Church in St. Petersburg, Florida, and a self-proclaimed atheist named Carlos, who describes himself as a “conservative homosexual.”

After hitting a bong and passing a joint around, the men use their time to discuss spirituality and religion. Once again, it’s proven that people can maintain their own personal beliefs while respecting others. Each offers a blessing or prayer to the other and they finish the experiment referring to each other as ‘friends’.

Watch as the trio’s brotherhood thickens, along with the amount of smoke in the room:

What Makes Us Human?


What is it that makes us human?

Is it that we love, that we fight?

That we laugh?

Cry?

Our curiosity?

The quest for discovery?

Driven by these questions, filmmaker and artist Yann Arthus-Bertrand spent three years collecting real-life stories from 2,000 women and men in 60 countries.

Working with a dedicated team of translators, journalists and cameramen, Yann captures deeply personal and emotional accounts of topics that unite us all; struggles with poverty, war, homophobia, and the future of our planet mixed with moments of love and happiness.

Amazing Resonance Experiment


This experiment is the Chladni plate experiment. A tone generator, a wave driver (speaker) and a metal plate attached to the speaker. First add sand to the plate then begin playing a tone. Certain frequencies vibrate the metal plate in such a way that it creates areas where there is no vibration. The sand "falls" into those areas, creating beautiful geometric patterns. As the frequency increases in pitch the patterns become more complex.

The dangers of cultural homogenization


When we do not take the time to enter into silence we cannot know the mysteries of life. Instead we only come to know what lies on the surface. 
– Lorraine Voss

Cultural homogenization is an aspect of cultural globalization and refers to the reduction in cultural diversity through the popularization and diffusion of a wide array of cultural symbols — not only physical objects but customs, ideas and values. Cultural homogenization in theory could lead to the development of a single global culture and the elimination of all other, local cultures becoming the same. ~ Wikipedia

It appears that there is a strong push and incentive towards cultural homogenization or sameness in our current culture. This is sad because it eliminates cultural diversity as it seeks to eliminate differences between people and instead, coerces them into maintaining a one-mind, one-voice, one-world myopic view through hearsay. In spite of the notion that this is an all-inclusive route for conjectural cultural uniformity, it is instead a course that is detrimental, regressive, and fails to incorporate individual evolutionary progress.

There are many people advocating for equality. What this has sadly come to mean for most is that we all chant the same mantra, share the same ideas, and agree on virtually everything. As warriors on a path of freedom it is important to avoid creating such limitations. The natural diversity of human experience far exceeds identical ideologies with one correct way of living. Cultural homogenization can only be achieved through brainwashing (meme after meme of the same thing) or by exerting force through a sense of guilt or shame to those who are non-compliant to a standardized method of doing things.

A path of freedom provides one with the potential to organically arrive at connecting with others through mutually beneficial and necessary diversity. It is when we are given the opportunity to strongly disagree with others that we come to recognize our own individual strengths for attaining new levels of awareness and evolutionary growth. If we were to merely agree with one another on everything presented to us, we eliminate our capacity for vision, revision, and ultimately a new way to view our humanity and our world.

While all spiritual and metaphysical paths ultimately lead to knowing universal source energy or God, the way in which one arrives to that knowing is as diverse and different as there are species upon the planet earth. Cultural homogenization causes the trailblazers or dissenters who are opposed to the dominant paradigm to seem rebellious as they refuse to conform to the sometimes mindless membership into the popular culture of what is most tasteful or acceptable to the masses.

Even when done with the intention of the highest good, coercing people into following a single mode of conduct prevents them from the wonder of arriving at their own conclusion founded upon their own unique and individual experiences. When a society comes together in agreement without true knowledge they function in a manner that lacks common sense, intuition, and pure perception. This is the very thing that creates the blind leading the blind, even when it is presented under the guise of doing what is best for the world.

When did we, as human beings, decide that it is better for one person to hold a vision and recruit everyone else on the planet to support and maintain that vision? Oddly, and what few people seem to remember, is that it has already been done. Indigenous people across the entire planet have been stripped of their customs while missionaries and conquerors imposed their beliefs upon them to the point of killing those who chose not to comply. Pagans and healers were burned at the stake. Do we really want to repeat that destructive pattern? Do warriors of freedom stand to have their personal visions maligned and slandered if they do not buy into the shallow theory of one-mindedness? It sometimes seems as though they already are if they are not in complete alignment with the visions of another.

More important than “becoming one” is the need to come together in our uniqueness so that we can coexist in a state of respect, balance, and peace. What occurs in a state of diverse coexistence is our ability to confront a greater scope of difficulties that can be creatively solved from multiple perspectives for the benefit of all.

Dancing in freedom!

MNCs Operated Destruction Of India

"In an industrialized India, the destruction of the aboriginal life is as inevitable as the submergence of Egyptian temples caused by the dams of the Nile. As things are going there can be no grandeur in the primitive's end. It will not be even simple extinction which is not the worst of human destinies. It is to be feared that the aboriginal's last act will be squalid, instead of tragic. What will be seen with most regret will be, not his disappearance, but his enslavement and degradation.
(Nirad C.Choudhury)

MNCs Operated Destruction Of India

Government of India collects many statistics every year on everything and anything except on the displaced people from the resource rich forests or river banks or fertile lands. None in India in government circles have any figure for the number of people that have been or are being displaced by big developmental projects or sacrificed on the altar of Developmental Mantra by every national government.

Where do these displaced people go?

Eventually they end up in slums of urban centers on government lands or on disputed lands. They become vote bank for urban political parties. In most cases once the land title is allotted these slum dwellers are uprooted from these slums so that big corporation can build shopping malls or apartment complexes for the development of the nation.

Various courts in India including the Supreme Court are either silent on this human tragedy of forcible displacement or in rarest cases sided with the government and big MNCs in pursuing their agendas. In many cases even if there were no environmental clearances for such huge ecology damaging projects like Tehri Dam or Tata and POSOCO or Vedanta, still they went ahead grabbing the lands of poor and destroying the ecology for MNC interests.

It would appear as though these problems are just the result of bad management, planning and a general lack of oversight and holistic perspective. However true that maybe it is just the partial truth. Upon a closer observation infact one would find that these problems are not the result of mis-management, instead they are the results of a very systematic and strategically charted out policies in motion through a very long time.

Most of these above mentioned displaced people are from virgin forests from where coal to diamonds, rare earth metals to gold could be hauled out at throw away prices, which would be used to make high technology cutting edge products again to be sold to India at 10,000 times more profit than the actual cost of the materials/products hauled out.

MNCs want these tribal Indians to go away from their resource rich lands sometime like yesterday. But they are afraid just like the East India Company, that such evacuation (read rehabilitation) may create revolt among people. To avoid such inconvenience MNCs are now using the very democratically elected governments to do the eviction of population in the guise of protection of wildlife and sustainable development.

A massive such eviction is taking place in the State of Andhra Pradesh from the virgin forests of Nallamala range for the exclusive benefits of De Beers, a diamond mining corporation that wants the kimberlite or diamonds from the forest. But that is not the only thing De Beers is after. What De Beers is after is the buried wealth of Vijayanagara Empire to be hauled permanently into western fold.

The efforts of De Beers started at least 13 years ago when it was told to us that “they realized the massive diamond, gold and granite deposits in Mehaboob Nagar and Kurnool districts of Andhra Pradesh”. These deposits are spread under the thick jungles of Nallamala Forests. These forests needed to be cleared first for the diamond mining or De Beers should have to resort to the latest technology called horizontal drilling under the forests.

Now here comes the kicker. East India Companies when they ruled India tried to locate these kimberlite mines and declared that they were all exhausted and thus shifted their focus to South Africa. In South Africa they found diamonds and set up African gold and diamond mining companies under the ruthless exploitative ownership of Openheimers, who were one of the owners of the East India Companies. It is these Nallamala diamond mines that were the source of the riches of all the kingdoms of India including the Vijayanagara Kingdom, which at its height sold diamonds on streets not in carats but in kilograms. This fact was recorded by Portuguese, Russian, French and other chroniclers who had business and diplomatic ties with Vijayanagara kingdom. Every crown jewel of every European kingdom in those days came from India and from these mines along the banks of Krishna or Tungabhadra rivers.

For a detailed understanding kindly read our research report The Hunt for the Treasures of Vijayanagara Empire.

In the year 1600 East India Company was formed and given exclusive right to trade with India and South East Asia by the British Monarchy under the concept of Free Trade and Globalization. It was also given the right to civilize India. In the year 1965 the Club of Rome (top industrial houses-real owners of EICs or MNCs) divided the world in 10 economic segments and gave unbridled authority to ruthlessly exploit Segment 9 (India belongs to this segment 9), a group of mineral (diamond, gold, uranium, life saving medicinal plants, organic food and drinking water) oil and natural gas rich South East Asian nations consisting one third of the population of the world- under liberalization (liberalize domestic economy to globalize its owners) and privatization (privatize so that Free Trade can further control domestic economy via global owners) to a group of MNCs.

Commenting on the mercantile political economy, Mayer Rothschild (one of the owners of the East India Company) once made a historic comment which is resoundingly true even after centuries – “give me the control of the currency of any nation and I care not who rules it…”

Liberalization and Privatization were the tools of the mercantile world in the long history of 400 year struggle to dominate resource rich Asia in general and India in particular. Since the beginning of liberalization of Indian economy for the supposed ‘development’ of India many Indians within the border of India became second-class citizens or non-citizens in their own native lands, country and cultural settings. They became the Helots of India, a derogatory term used by the Romans to indicate non-Romans in their country, intermediate in status between slaves and citizens. However still for whose sake is this development, is still not yet answered as it is tacitly understood that it is for the western countries to continue their geopolitical fight with their yester year cold war adversaries.

It wouldn’t be farfetched to say that in the name of development India is now run only for the profit maximization of giant western Multinational Corporations (MNCs) which are in their latest avatar from the erstwhile East India Companies (EICs). In fact all the owners of current MNCs are the grand children of the previous East India Companies, in lineage, spirit, methods, tactics and business policies (read Business Intelligence).

For a detailed study of the origin of these EICs, their motives and the motives of MNCs along with the commodities EICs dealt with and MNCs plan to deal with or are already dealing with; along with the elusive owners of these MNCs tracking them back to their East India Company roots kindly refer to our East India Company Series – Part I Noble Motives.

Mother Earth – The Essential Mirror

AUGUST 17, 2015 


Only if one loves this earth with unbending passion can one release one’s sadness. A warrior is always joyful because his love is unalterable and his beloved, the earth, embraces him and bestows upon him inconceivable gifts. The sadness belongs only to those who hate the very thing that gives shelter to their beings. – Don Juan, Tales of Power

Do you pay attentions to omens? I do. Yesterday I came across two images that I adore, posted by fellow warriors. The one at the top of this post is an image I have used on and off as my cover and avatar for many years. The picture below is from an eye-opening article entitled The Greening of the Self: The Most Important Development of Modern Times.


As a warrior I identify with the earth, with all of her beings. Other warriors have urged me to release my attachment to the earth telling me that I am losing energy to her and that the earth is an illusion. I do not agree. The earth is not an illusion, the stories that encircle the earth are the illusions. It is impossible to lose energy to her because it is she, who energizes us. I do not know of any pain greater than that of the destruction of the earth and have tried to shield myself from the atrocities that occur upon her. But the truth is that the ability to shield oneself from the daily devastation of earth and her inhabitants is impossible when you honor her and love her; when you have merged and become one with her.

The earth is the ultimate mirror, the mirror that unconditionally reflects to us the horrors that we are imposing upon each other, upon every being to dwell upon her lush and sensuous body. She is doing her best to magnify the senseless destruction so that we may be able to recognize the error of our ways and transform them. The warriors who are paying attention are magnifying her reflection; it’s happening but we’re not there yet. Without going into the politics of it all, which you already know anyway, we must to align with the awareness of the earth being a sentient being that hosts life upon her body of soil, stone, and water.

When we align with her reflection of beauty and grace and wholeness, we arrive at a state of humility, gratitude, respect, and conservation for not only the earth but each other and all earthly beings. As more and more people resonate with that reflection or hologram it will become more and more magnified and the destructive forces will lose energy and become overshadowed by her radiance. We have to acknowledge that we are that radiance and reflect that out into the world.

To fully comprehend the totality of this amazing planet, it becomes necessary to get to know the Earth on an intimate level. Sitting upon Mother Earth is the most powerful teacher and catalyst but unfortunately, in current times, the connection to nature has become vastly diminished. The connection with the Earth was such an integral part of spiritual, emotional and physical vitality to our ancestors; it teaches us to learn how to listen to inner voices and truths. It is within our connection with the Earth that we come to know the pulse of the Earth and through this pulse we can align with the universal life-force energy. Within the vibrational energy of the Earth, we find ourselves to be in the moment without the distractions of the past or the future which allows us to begin to perceive things in a most incredible and new way. It is at this moment that we are completely aligned with the power of creation and the silent knowledge that allows us to know that we already know.

The Earth is the planet on which we, as pure consciousness, decided to take form. We wanted to explore life in human form and we chose this beautiful Earth on which to do it. We must pay homage to the Earth for her stately beauty, her selfless giving, and her constant acts of creation. She energizes us, soothes and heals us, and assists us in raising our levels of awareness and consciousness. In order to attain states of heightened awareness and higher levels of consciousness, we must be sure to embrace our opportunity to build a strong foundation on stable ground. Like trees, the more deeply rooted we become in the Earth, the more support we have for expansion.

The Earth is a witness to us all. As we deepen our connection to her we become free of the illusions that are the essential components of the man-made matrix. Fear, scarcity, dread, worthlessness, negativity, victimization, oppression, manipulation and domination all fall away and taking its place is abundance, creativity, harmony, beauty, equality, unity, peace and freedom. Thank you mother earth, for providing the energy that is necessary for us, as warriors, to attain total freedom.

We are children of the Earth, it is our ultimate source. The option of sorcerers is to unite with the awareness of the Earth, for as long as the Earth will live. ~ Carlos Castaneda, Encounters with the Nagual

This Rescued Lab Chimp’s Reaction To Seeing The Sky For The First Time Will Bring You To Tears


All across the United States, thousands of animals live in cages for lab testing. Their entire lives are spent in captivity and they’re used for research purposes. They never get to go outside, they never get to interact with other animals, and nothing about their lives is natural. You can definitely make the argument that medical testing on animals has been beneficial to mankind, but it is still an extremely sad way for any animal to spend its life.

Thankfully, the Humane Society of the United States is doing everything it can to give these animals a better life. As far as chimpanzees go, The Humane Society is actively rescuing lab chimps and giving them a natural habitat to climb trees and engage with other chimps.

The chimps you’ll see in the video below are part of a massive chimp retirement. Over 100 chimps were released into a sanctuary. since they’ve been kept in captivity for most of their lives, they can never be released back into the wild, especially since most of them are over 50 years old. However, the sanctuary is the next best place for a chimp to live out their lives in peace.

Besides being able to play outside for the first time, this was also the first time many of the chimps are getting to interact with each other with out cages separating them. For the rest of their lives, these chimps will be able to socialize and explore a natural habitat.

Watch the chimps’ retirement, and don’t forget to SHARE this incredible moment with your family and friends!

If you want to learn more about the Humane Society and how they’re helping animals all over the world, check out their website website and watch more of their videos on their YouTube channel!

We are the Aliens

Clouds of alien life forms are sweeping through outer space and infecting planets with life. The idea that life on Earth came from another planet has been around as a modern scientific theory since the 1960s when it was proposed by Fred Hoyle and Chandra Wickramasinghe. At the time they were ridiculed for their idea -- known as panspermia. But now, with growing evidence, it's back in vogue and even being studied by NASA.

Inuit People on the daily earth wobble, sun moon and stars out of place


A new warning has come to NASA from the Inuits. They are warning that the change in climate is not due to global warming but rather, because of the Earth shifting a bit.

The Inuits are local people that live in the Arctic regions of Canada, the United States and Greenland. They are excellent weather forecasters and so were their ancestors. Presently they are warning NASA that the cause of change in weather, earthquakes etc, are not due to global warming as the world thinks

They state that the earth has shifted or “wobbled”. “Their sky has changed!”

The elders declare that the sun rises at a different position now, not where it used to previously. They also have longer daylight to hunt now, the sun is much higher than earlier, and it gets warmer much quickly. Other elders across the north also confirmed the same thing about the sky changing when interviewed.

They also alleged that the position of sun, moon and stars have all changed causing changes in the temperature. This has also affected the wind and it is very difficult to predict the weather now and according to them predicting weather is necessary on Arctic.

All the elders confirmed that the Earth has shifted, wobbled or tilted toward the North.

This information provided by the Inuit Elders has caused a great concern in the NASA scientists.

Holographic Universe

The perceptions we observe may well be coming from an artificial source. Suppose we could take our brain out of our body and keep it alive in a glass jar. Put a computer in which all kinds of information can be recorded. Transmit the electrical signals of all the data related to a setting such as image, sound and smell into this computer. Connect this computer to the sensory centers in our brain with electrodes and send the pre-recorded data to our brain. As our brain perceives these signals it will see and live the setting correlated with these.

What Plants Talk About

by Doc Film
February 28, 2014

When we think about plants, we don't often associate a term like "behavior" with them, but experimental plant ecologist J.C. Cahill wants to change that.

The University of Alberta professor maintains that plants do behave and lead anything but solitary and sedentary lives.

'What Plants Talk About' teaches us all that plants are smarter and much more interactive than we thought!

The Mountain of Mystery

by Planet Doc Full Documentaries

from YouTube Website
 
In this documentary we travel to the oldest place on Earth. Here lies the largest, most intact virgin forest in the world, on the Guayana Massif, in the south of Venezuela, along the Brazilian border.

In the interior of this green world lost in time, live men intimately adapted to their jungle environment which, though fascinating, is full of dangers. They are the inhabitants of the jungle, who live alongside and respect the endless different life forms around them.
 
Their culture is ancient, almost as ancient as the landscape in which it has developed.

Traditional knowledge of the jaguar shamans of Yuruparí

The jaguar shamans of Yuruparí are the common heritage of the many ethnic groups living along the Pirá Paraná River in southeastern Colombia. Using traditional knowledge and ritual practices, the shamans heal, prevent sickness and revitalize nature. During the Hee Biki ritual, male children learn the traditional guidelines for these practices as a part of their passage into adulthood. It is believed that shamans inherited their traditional knowledge from the all-powerful, mythical Yuruparí, an anaconda who lived as a human and is embodied in sacred trumpets. Country(ies): Colombia.

Shamanic Ecstasy

You are not your genes,
you are your dreams.


Several decades ago, I was a medical anthropologist doing research in the Amazon rainforest.

My salary and expenses were paid for by a research grant from a pharmaceutical company hoping to find the bark or root that could become the next great cancer cure. After all, the jungle is nature’s pharmacy, filled with exotic plants whose powers have yet to be discovered.

I spent many months canoeing to villages that had seldom seen a white man and wherever I went, I found there was no cancer or heart disease, even in the elders of the communities.

Clearly, the indigenous people of the area knew something about health that we westerners didn’t know.

What was their secret?

I returned home with my backpack empty, and my sponsor could not accept that I hadn’t brought back the key ingredient for a blockbuster drug that would make all of us rich and save some lives at the same time. However, I did return with insights from having been taught the wisdom of the shamans by several mentors who took me under their wing.

I learned there was a magic ingredient to health that could be found in the rainforest, but it would not fit in a backpack. It was shamanic medicine. It was, the shamans told me, the medicine that would allow a person to become like the jaguar (below video).

And it could only be found in the invisible world of Spirit...

(Alberto Villoldo is one of the world’s most respected shamanic teachers and authors, and the founder of the Four Winds Society, where he trains individuals throughout the world in the practice of energy medicine. A psychologist and medical anthropologist, he has studied the healing practices of the Amazon and Inca shamans  for more than 25 years. While at San Francisco State University, he founded the Biological Self-Regulation Laboratory to study how the mind creates psychosomatic health and disease.)
