Tarot Cards for Today: "Tower"; "9 of Wands"; "9 of Pentacles" ... the simple tarot message reads ... 'for those who have their fingers on the pulse ready to make a major adjustment in their lives - with new ventures beckoning - what is there to fear in stepping out of your comfort zone? The acquisition of new experiences and challenges beckon but your fear of making that move hold you back. An intense period of negotiations and travel plans lies ahead. Good luck' ...

The Law of Rhythm

“ To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven. ”
All energy vibrates and moves according to its own rhythm. These rhythms establish cycles and patterns. Think of the seasons, all of which form a full year. Each season has its own purpose and function, but is a vital part of the full circle.
Learn to harmonize with the higher vibrational energies that you seek to attract. Raise your vibration through the understanding and practice of the other universal laws, and harmonize with those higher energies. Meditation is a means that many use to connect their energy to their source and as a result they maintain “higher frequencies” and that sense of connection throughout the more>>>...

You Think GMO Is Scary? Nano Tech is Here, In Your Store

Nanotechnology is measured in billionths of a meter, encompassing all aspects of life from food to medicine, clothing, to space. Imagine hundreds of microcomputers on the width of a strand of hair programmed for specific your body. Sound good? Engineering at a molecular level may be a future corporations' dream come true, however, nano-particles inside your body have few long-term studies especially when linked to health issues. Despite this new hugeincome-generating field there is a growing body of toxicological information suggesting that nanotechnology when consumed can cause brain damage (as shown in largemouth bass), and therefore should undergo a full safety assessment. It is possible for nano-particles to slip through the skin, suggestive of a potential unnatural interaction with the immune system, or when micro particles enter the blood-stream. Some sunscreens on the shelf today, for instance, have nano-particles that might be able to penetrate the skin, move between organs, with unknown health effects.

Changing the Way We Relate

A relationship, in the truest sense of the word, means relating to another. Usually when we say that we relate to someone, it is because we’ve found common ground. But part of relating is finding ways to make ideas that seem different come together. So often when we choose relationships, we try to fit another person into our predetermined ideal. When they don’t fit perfectly, we may try to make them over, creating our own vision from the raw material they’ve brought. But unless someone asks for guidance and direction, entering into a relationship with someone we want to change is dishonest. Then our relationship becomes with someone we’ve imagined, and anytime our partner steps outside of that imaginary projection, we will be disappointed. An honest relationship is one in which we accept each other as whole individuals, and find a way to share our life experiences together. Then, whenever we want, we can choose as a couple to give the relationship a makeover by renewing the way we interact.

By wanting to give another person a makeover, we are basically saying we don’t accept them for who they are. If we take a moment to imagine the roles reversed, we can get a sense of how it would feel if our beloved only committed to us because they thought we were, or would become, someone else entirely. In such an environment, we are not relating to each other from a real place, and we are keeping ourselves from being able to learn and grow from the different viewpoints that our partners offer.

If we feel that a change is needed in our relationship, the only makeover that we truly have the power to make is on ourselves. By accepting our partners for exactly who they are—the ideal and the not-so-ideal—we will create an energetic shift in our relationships, and we may find ourselves really appreciating our partners for the first time. Working from within, we determine how we relate to the people and the world around us, and when we can accept it and embrace it all, without conditions, we make every act of relating a positive one.

2012 - More Observations!

Things are going strange again. Been talking to a few sensitives in the last few days ... from various localities. We are almost in the eighth month. The end of July certainly heralded the eye of the storm and the levelling out I was given insightfully earlier in the year. However, I knew it wouldn't last. It was a breathing space to take stock and to fit some sturdier armour. Armour which once again is being bashed with swords sent by those of the darker intent, 'because they know the time is short' ... yes, indeed. The sunset (Left) is how I visualise the turning of 2013 ... the light of truth and its wondrous vibration which has been rattling through us all this year. So many are suffering with self truths and distortions of self ... so much so their lives are apparently falling apart at the seams! Not so. Their lives are merely adjusting to what they should be with what they should have in them. 

I mentioned the sensitives I was speaking too recently ... and the strangeness of events once more. It is true. There is continued madness and delusion out there... but thankfully there are now protective bubbles which can shield us from the madness out there. Embracing the truth vibration and seeing self as it really is ... gives you immunity from the crazy nit-pickings of the narcissistic and psychopathic souls who are brandishing the swords at this time! The old world is no more! The old ways of thinking are gone! It's pointless hanging on to those things outgrown. Its time to embrace these new vibrations ... a bit like gripping hot metal at the moment I know ... but pain will give way to truth ... and things will be seen as they really are. No delusion and no deceptions from the veils that are around you. I can promise you that. I know from recent mediumistic experiences that things are no longer the same. There is consistency and accuracy like never before. My most recent clients will testify that the connections to the other dimensions I make at this time are scary! I work devoid of any delusion or falsehood. I know it sounds egotistical to some ... perhaps. But I make a simple observation of what it taking place. Messages can be validated perfectly at this time ... unlike those who still live under the clouds of guided or angelic delusions. There connections are failing ... I know that. I get told of these things. 'The other camp' is desperate to hold on for financial gains ... whilst here in 'the other camp' we now move on into the true light fields which have not been wandered across in centuries ...! Thus we are attacked by the darker intent due to their crumbling lives and their self anger. I'm sorry if I laugh at this moment ... but they are so pathetic. Pity them as they know not what they do. Monetary gain is being fuelled by their R-Complex in their left brain. They are accumulating wealth because they are on survival mode. It is fuelling their jealousy as they are fearful of the day when they don't have any. Us on the other hand are always provided with what we need. It can be a struggle ... but our lives appear to be less stressful than they have been. We feel the mortar shells that explode all around us ... but so what ... it has always been like this. The intensity may increase as we near December ... so what. We will survive. 

The line in the sand has been made permanent ... and there is now no more defection or enrollment. The sides are what they are now ... we know our 'enemies' ... and we know their lives are being shattered by their delusions and fears. Fuelled by the sweet sickly voices in their minds that promise them fame, fortune, recognition ... glamours which are mere illusions and will never take place. They are sucked in so readily by the enchantments of the ancient watchers and are lost. They know not what they see or do. Think about it ... its true! And on that note I will end this sermon ... without really going anywhere new. That's the thing about this point in 2012 ... its a returning circle ... the wheel of life crammed into one year. Exciting ...?? Maybe not for some ... Matthew James 30th July 2012

The “Black Knight” Satellite?

In March of 1960, another mysterious satellite was discovered orbiting earth. This mystery satellite was in polar orbit feat that neither the US nor Russian were capable of at that time. The soviet satellites were inclined at 65 degree angle with the equator. It was calculated that the weight object to about 15 tons, which is far too heavy for rocket of that era. It also traveled twice as fast as any known satellite at the time. The object was sighted and studied by many of the astronomers across the country. This is what Robert L. Johnson, director of the Adler Planetarium had to say about the object,
It was then photographed by the Grumman Aircraft Corporation.

The military attached so much importance to this mystery satellite that they created special committee to gather information and study the mystery satellite. The committee’s findings were kept secret and the sightings were forgotten. That is still HAM operator intercepted a strange signal from this mystery satellite. The signal was later studied by Scottish astronomer Duncan Lunan. The decoded massages show a star map centered on Epsilon Boštes as seen from the earth. . . years more>>>...

Narcissistic Personality Disorder

Narcissism is a term used to describe a focus on the self and self-admiration that is taken to an extreme. The word “narcissism” comes from a Greek myth in which a handsome young man named Narcissus sees his reflection in a pool of water and falls in love with it.

Narcissistic personality disorder is one of a group of conditions called dramatic personality disorders. People with these disorders have intense, unstable emotions, and a distorted self-image. Narcissistic personality disorder is further characterized by an abnormal love of self, an exaggerated sense of superiority and importance, and a preoccupation with success and power. However, these attitudes and behaviors do not reflect true self-confidence. Instead, the attitudes conceal a deep sense of insecurity and a fragile self-esteem. People with this personality disorder also tend to set unrealistic goals.

In many cases, people with narcissistic personality disorder:
1.Are self-centered and boastful
2. Seek constant attention and admiration
3. Consider themselves better than others
4. Exaggerate their talents and achievements
5. Believe that they are entitled to special treatment
6. Are easily hurt but might not show it
7. Might take advantage of others to achieve their goals

Other common traits of narcissistic personality disorder include the following:
a. Preoccupation with fantasies that focus on unlimited success, power, intelligence, beauty, or love
b. Belief that he or she is “special” and unique, and can only be understood by other special people
c. Expectation that others will automatically go along with what he or she wants
d. Inability to recognize or identify with the feelings, needs, and viewpoints of others
e. Envy of others or a belief that others are envious of him or her
f. Hypersensitivity to insults (real or imagined), criticism, or defeat, possibly reacting with rage, shame, and humiliation
g. Arrogant behavior and/or attitude ... read more>>>...

Breaking Family Ties that Bind

When we really examine our fears about something, we sometimes notice that the fear we have is not based on our own experience. Often, if we trace our fear back to its source, we find that one of our parents may have handed it down to us. For example, your mother or father may have had an intense fear of lack of money, stemming from their own life experiences. If that fear was not resolved by the time you came into the picture, chances are you inherited it. Meanwhile, you may have no actual experience of lacking money, so being fearful doesn’t make sense, and it may even block you from doing certain things you want to do.

Keeping in mind that your parents were only trying to protect you, and that most of the errors in judgment they made were made with the best intentions, it might be time to release this fear symbolically. You cannot resolve someone else’s fear for them, but you can decide to let go of it on your own behalf. Whether your parents are still alive or not, it is best to do this in a symbolic way, using visualization and, if you like, ritual. One simple visualization involves inviting your parent to sit across from you in your heart space and sharing your desire to move on from this fear, letting them know that you will not carry it anymore. You may be surprised at the response you get, because it’s possible they will be proud of you, grateful, and proud of your courage.

The more we do this deep inner work with our fears, the better we will be able to parent our own children without burdening them with fears that don’t belong to them. Some of us will do as much of this work as we can before we become parents, while others will be working on this even as our children become adults. Either way, the effects will be felt, because once we break our ties to the fears of the past, our children’s ties to those fears are greatly weakened, so it’s important to remember that it’s never too late.

Quote for Today

"The soul requires duration of time -- rich, thick, deep, velvety time -- and it thrives on rhythm. Soul can’t be hurried or harried .... We may go through many events in the day and experience nothing because the soul has not had the opportunity to feel them from many different points of view."-- Robert Sardello

How Will the 99% Deal with the Psychopaths in the 1%?

Did you know that roughly one person in a hundred is clinically a psychopath? These individuals are either born with an emotional deficiency that keeps them from feeling bad about hurting others, or they are traumatized early in life in a manner that causes them to become this way. With more than 7 billion people on the planet that means there are as many as 70,000,000 psychopaths alive today.

The Feeling Underneath

Many people suffer with the tendency to apologize all the time, chronically, for everything. On the one hand, apologizing is a social convention that keeps interactions between people polite, and in that way it can be very helpful. On the other hand, if we find ourselves apologizing for everything, it might be time to look at why we feel compelled to say “I’m sorry” so often. Ultimately, saying you’re sorry is saying that you are responsible for something that has gone wrong in the situation. Whether it’s negotiating a parking spot, moving through the aisles of the supermarket, or reaching for what you want, there are times when sorry is the right thing to say. But there are other times when “excuse me” is more accurate.

Sometimes saying you’re sorry is like saying that the other person in the equation has more of a right to be here than you do. Of course, it’s true that using the word sorry can simply be an innocuous way of defusing tension. However, if you find that you say sorry all the time, you might want to look a little deeper and see where in your psyche that might be coming from. If it’s a pattern, breaking it may simply take some awareness and practice.

The first step is observing yourself each time you say it, without being hard on yourself about it. Throughout your day simply notice when you apologize. At first, you might be surprised to see that you do it even more than you first realized. After a day or two of simply observing, try to tune in to what it is you are feeling right before you say it. You might be feeling threatened, embarrassed, intensely anxious, or a variety of other feelings. Over time, try to stop yourself before the words come out and just be with the feeling that’s there. You may recognize it as one from your childhood, one that’s been with you for a long time. The more you are able to see it, the freer you will be not to be sorry all the time.

"Are We Dead?" - Part 3

I had been intending to continue in the vein of the previous two portions of this article ... sharing my inspirational findings regarding this controversial paradigm. But... there is a need to digress, change direction ... still on the same subject, but bring in other aspects. Firstly, I shared my insights recently with members of a closed circle Kabbalah development group I facilitate here in Canberra. We'd walked the Path Of Nun on the Tree Of Life ... and had dedicated the meditation to a series of death, rebirth & renewal experiences. Thus, it had been an apt time to talk about my paradigm 'that this is really the spirit world' ... interestingly, nearly everyone shared the same viewpoint as me. "It makes sense" someone said. "I thought the same when I was a child" was another reply. So maybe it is not a crazy a notion as I have been thinking. 2012 appears to be the year to have the  'collected bilge' dredged from off the surface of the mind pool. We do indeed appear to be seeing things much clearer. The BIG SECRET that has been concealed from us by secret societies down through the ages appears to be in plain view now. I often wondered about the beliefs and nature of Egyptian spirituality. TRUE Egyptian spirituality ... the post Egyptian society before the Nubian deception which took place when history was rewritten. The Egyptian history we are fed in the modern day is NOT the Egypt I am referring to. 
The illusionary nature of this 'world' is not collusive to really  'being alive'. There is a certain degree of bullshit associated with every aspect of this real world plane. For the last few weeks I've purposely turned all things we know about the earth and life on its head. I've looked at things from an opposite perspective so to speak ... and have got into the notion of being in the Review Mode aspect of the spirit world we are told is the first stage of being dead. It fits into the mould of the karmic patterns we are living in on planet earth. Plenty of lessons to learn etc etc ... 
I recall an experience on a recent ghost bust when I clearly felt and heard three old men who were milling about the grave yard. They demanded I tell them what I was doing ... I told them I was watching them because they were dead! They calmly informed me that it was me who was dead ... that I was in the spirit world. I couldn't dismiss the conversation ... and have received numerous insights from 'dear departed souls' during private readings that imply the same. One insight has stuck in my mind ... an entity remarked that 'when I wander the streets of the earth, look around at all the lost souls who don't realise they are dead ... souls who have been made to believe they are living'. There is a distinct ring of truth with that statement. We've certainly been made to forget our origins or what we are ... systematically and deliberately. The big secret I comprehend is the withdrawal of the knowledge we are dead. We are replaying a life review over and over in a time loop. Reviewing the same life ... again and again. When we 'pass' from this review ... it seems we wander to what is called 'the halls of reincarnation' and prepare to go back to 'LIFE' ... not here but the real earthplane. Instead ... so many are 'reincarnated' back here back into the mire of amnesia. That process still eludes me ... but I concede that when I communicate with departed souls I may well only be reaching into the vibrational fields of the Hall Of Reincarnation. Another notion I am reviewing at this time ... which would explain why the inimitable Thoth/Enoch/Merlin/Odin connects so readily with me ... he is after all the record keeper who resides in these places according to ancient Egyptian. We seem to be missing the BIG DEAL so readily we return into this mire to remember we are dead!!! That is what it appears ... so when we leave this hall having reviewed the life correctly we can accept the dealings and really move on. Otherwise we keep repeating the same pattern in a constant review cycle. That I firmly believe. 
The insights are still not perfect because my comprehension of the entire process, having looked at life in a reversed fashion, is too profound to explain in words. It just feels right and like something I'd forgotten ... the amnesia is lifting and my standard of life is so much better. More later ... bye for now --- Matthew James 26th July 2012

The great thing in the world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving.” -- Oliver Wendell Holmes 

Tarot Card Of The Day - "Lust"

This card is primarily about having a fascination and enthusiasm with the whole life process - delighting in the moment, observing both your surroundings and yourself on a minute by minute basis, engaging with life to the best of your abilities. We can often get distracted from taking proper notice of life....if we are worried, busy, stressed, becomes all too easy to forget that our very existence is a miracle. We stop noticing beauty or joy...... we lose our ability to be both delighted and surprised at life. And this is a desperate shame, for life can become a constant and ever-changing flow of miracles, excitement and exhilaration. All that is required here is that we agree to allow it...and then pay right attention. Right attention is a challenging skill to develop but the effort invested pays enormous dividends once you have practised enough for this to become a habit. It means placing your attention in the moment, and then holding it there. By doing this you become infinitely aware, seeing, hearing and feeling things that would have otherwise slipped by more>>>...

UFO sightings in Canada neared a record high last year, while Manitoba reported its third-highest number of cases ever in the province. According to a report released Tuesday by Ufology Research, which has studied unidentified flying objects in this country since 1989, there were 986 sightings across the country in 2011 - or almost three per day. The national record for a single year is 1,004 sightings, set in 2008. Ontario led the country in sightings, with 406. B.C. and Alberta placed a distant second and third.

A Bridge to Acceptance

Whenever we do something in life with an expectation of how we’d like it to turn out, we risk experiencing disappointment. When things don’t go the way we had envisioned, we may feel a range of emotions from slightly let down to depressed or even angry. We might direct our feelings inward toward ourselves, or outward toward other people or the universe in general. Whether we feel disappointed by ourselves, a friend, or life in general, disappointment is always a tough feeling to experience. Still, it is a natural part of life, and there are many ways of dealing with it when we find ourselves in its presence.

As with any feeling, disappointment has come to us for a reason, and we don’t need to fear acknowledging it or feeling it. The more we are able to accept how we are feeling and process it, the sooner we will move into new emotional territory. As we sit down to allow ourselves to feel our disappointment, we might want to write about the experience of being disappointed—the situation that preceded it, what we were hoping would happen, and what did happen. The gift of disappointment is its ability to bring us into alignment with reality so that we don’t get stuck for too long in the realm of how things might have been.

As we consider other disappointments in our life and how we have moved past them, we may even see that in some cases what happened was actually better in the long run than what we had wanted to happen. Disappointment often leaves us feeling deflated with its message that things don’t always turn out the way we want. The beauty of disappointment, though, is that it provides us a bridge to its other side where the acceptance of reality, wisdom, and the energy to begin again can be found.

Employing Presence

Being present at work begins before we even go to our place of employment. It starts with our intention to bring consciousness into everything we do, including those activities we do for money. Whether you are a secretary who files papers all day, a janitor who cleans the local high school, or a nurse caring for children, there is much to be gained by fully engaging in the tasks at hand. When you decide to bring your presence into your work activities, you may find that the entire experience of working is filled with new energy and life.

Sometimes we believe that when we step through the doors of our workplace, we cease being ourselves and start being someone else’s employee. Though our employer may depend on us to perform certain tasks, the truth is that we never stop being ourselves. The commitment to being a conscious, empowered person of integrity doesn’t stop and start with a time clock. Our decision to be present for our own lives is what weaves together all of our experiences from the moment we wake up, throughout our entire workday, and to the moment we turn off the lights at night.

Before leaving for work today, you can clear your energy and choose to step out with your best foot forward. Setting an intention in the morning can even help you stay present as your day unfolds. You might decide to find joy in every activity, complete all of your projects on time, or be truly helpful to your coworkers. By being fully present, you will begin to radiate and people may begin to notice; they may even want to follow your lead. Whether you run a company or hold a sign outside a deli, do it with pride and be the best you can be.

Dangerous Levels of Fukushima Radiation Headed for West Coast of the USA, Say Scientists

In the immediate wake of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster that occurred in Japan last year, radioactive releases of epic proportions flooded the waters of the Pacific Ocean, where they now flow adrift. And even though more than a year has passed since the time of the first releases, some scientists believe the worst is yet to come as these water-borne radioactive plumes head for the U.S. West Coast. Russia Today (RT) reports that a team of scientists from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory recently constructed some models designed to assess the impact of Fukushima radiation over the longer term. To do this, they simulated ocean currents in the Pacific, and evaluated how radiation would both disperse and travel.They discovered that, within the next few years, the worst of Fukushima's radiation releases will make its way across the Pacific and hit the American coastline. So-called "packets" of radiation are also expected to continue forming as the larger plumes travel via the ocean currents, which could result in highly radioactive waves of ocean water striking West Coast beaches in the very near more>>>...

UFO sightings are up in Australia

Copyright (All rights reserved) Matthew James 2004
UFO sightings in Australia are on the rise, and international studies indicate a growing number of 'closet believers' of extraterrestrial life, according to people who track such phenomena. But people who come forward to report sightings are still pilloried by much of society. The issue emerged again last week after a video of an alleged UFO sighting over the NSW south coast was posted on YouTube and raised a few sceptics' eyebrows. It was no surprise to UFO investigator Doug Moffett, who has been delving into the authenticity of sightings across Australia for more than 20 years. "That's the way it is usually treated in the media - like this fun topic to laugh at, rather than being treated as a scientific possibility," the Daily Telegraph quoted him as saying. Moffett, part of the UFO Research NSW group, pointed to the fact that there were an estimated 100 billion stars in our galaxy and planets that were billions of years older than ours as reason enough to validate the search for extraterrestrial life. "What I'm trying to achieve is for people to not knee-jerk dismiss things," he said. Central Coast grandmother Jane Pooley hardly fits the stereotype of a UFO believer. But the 51-year-old says she saw one last week. She described watching a craft with rotating lights moving silently above Brisbane Water, near where she lives - an area recognised as one of Australia's UFO more>>>...

Unconscious Communication

Being late for an appointment or a date can seem like a small thing that really doesn’t matter, but it communicates volumes, whether we mean it to or not. Being kept waiting is an experience that almost no one enjoys, because at best, it wastes their time, and at worst, it indicates a lack of regard. It’s as if we’re saying that our time is more important than their time, so we don’t need to honor them by showing up when we said we would. When we are running late, it means a lot if we call and let the person know, especially if it’s going to be more than ten minutes. However, if we are chronically late, it may take more than a phone call to properly address the issue. If it’s become a habit of ours not to be on time, we may want to look inside ourselves and see what’s going on. It’s easy enough to make excuses about our behavior, or to project responsibility on the other person, perceiving them to be uptight if they are irritated by our tardiness. What’s more difficult, and more meaningful, is looking at ourselves and asking why it is that we always, or often, show up late. Sometimes this happens out of a lack of self-regard, as if we aren’t really important anyway, so why will anyone care if we’re late, or don’t show up at all. Chronic lateness can also stem from being disorganized, or simply trying to do too much in one day. Another possible reason for being late to a particular appointment, or date, is that we don’t really want to be there. We communicate our disinterest or boredom by not showing up on time. Whatever our reasons, if we raise them to the conscious level, we have an opportunity to live a more conscious life. As we begin to understand the deeper reasons behind our inability to show up on time, we have the option to communicate clearly and consciously about how we really feel, rather than communicating unconsciously by being late.

Understanding 'Seance'

The word Séance comes from French séance, 'seat', 'session', from Old French seoir, 'to sit.' In French as in English the word came to be used specifically for a meeting of people to receive spiritualistic messages (a sense first recorded in English in 1845), but earlier in French and English the word had been used for meetings more generally. A séance is a form of mediumship in which one or more people communicate with entities on another frequency. We generally refer to them as spirits who will bring their messages in many interesting way. The most popular & traditional form of Séance is sitting around a table with palms face down on the table & thumbs touching to create a connection between each and every like minded soul around the table.

"You are not the first and you shall not be the last"

"The sightings have for many human centuries been reported. In all the ancient writings they hast been written down. The gods of the sky. They came from the sky. They visited our worlds. Mankind must be seen as foolish to think it can be so easily deceived. There is too much evidence all around for it to be anything other than visitors from other skies. But we warn you now, Belial hast strongholds below your feet. Within those strongholds the technology of our lost cultures survive. Ancient crafts of the sky and of space. Mind controlling gadgetry and other technology too advanced for mankind to ever imagine. Mankind you be deceived - Belialian agencies teach you the latest civilisation be the most advanced mankind hast ever been. They deceive you. They have destroyed the links and the documents which contradict their claims. Know they lie. Atlan was by far more advanced than anything since but even Atlan is but a shadow of what there has been on this world. This world hast been used by the source as a teaching ground countless times. Like a blackboard it can be cleaned and used again with no trace of all the last times. Mankind you be but one in a long line of genetic experimentations. You are not the first and you shall not be the last." [Extract taken from The Chronicles Of Ezra written by Matthew James]

The Lovers

This is a lovely card, concerned with the harmonisation of opposites at all levels of being. At the highest level, the Lovers represents the marriage of the Emperor and the Empress - the archetypal union of male and female. Of course, one of the areas that this card therefore covers is that of emotional relationships. We've discussed often how, for love to grow and create change, it must be allowed to flow unhindered and free. If this is stopped, then love, like the water used symbolically to represent it so often, becomes stagnant and fetid. Ask yourself the question - have you been emotionally honest with yourself? Have you achieved genuine access to positive feelings about yourself? If not, then open up those doors and let yourself really see who you are. You might just get a pleasant surprise. And after all - if you don't like it at all, you can always move on tomorrow!! Affirmation: I love and accept more>>>...

How Do You Know?

In truth, there is no way for us to know what is real. We believe we are human beings experiencing life here on Earth, but in reality we could be imagining this entire experience. We could be hooked up to machines and dreaming this entire existence. We could be a bunch of video game characters on God’s computer, or characters in a holodeck on a starship. We just don’t know. We can’t know. And any information we gather could just be part of the simulation or hallucination. Given that we can’t really know what’s real, what are we supposed to do? How are we supposed to behave? How are we supposed to go on if we don’t really know what’s real? How are we supposed to trust any information our brains give us when all that information could be programmed at the whimsy of a machine, an alien, or a higher consciousness? The answer is that we can’t know. We can’t ever really know. Even when we die and have some kind of experience, it could all be part of the more>>>...

Artificial structures on the Moon?

A video on YouTube claims to have discovered UFO bases and alien buildings and monuments on the Moon. Can it be true?

The video, produced by skywatcher SonOfMaBarker, is the result of painstakingly poring over magnified images of the Moon provided by NASA. The researcher claims the discovery is so explosive, the space agency will soon be trying to airbrush away the findings.

Looking at the evidence is quite persuasive. There are indeed formations on the Moon which resemble man-made objects, such as landing fields, monuments and buildings.

In one startling image, it seems as though a ring of towers encircles a lunar crater's edge. It certainly doesn't look like a random, naturally occurring formation. In another, the side of a crater appears similar to structures on Earth like the Pyramids of Giza.

Inspiration for the Day

"We live in a culture that is greatly biased against the imagination, because our culture is very materialistic, objective and literal. Our culture lacks soul, and doesn’t know it, although it experiences the consequences. When you don’t know what’s missing, then of course you don’t know what to bring in, even though you feel something is missing."

“We live in a world that needs more soul, more meaning. We, as conscious beings, have, as our primary responsibility, at this time in human history, the task of bringing soul into the world, or releasing soul into the world. We do this, first of all, in ourselves and in our own personal world; then we do it in our groups – including family; then we do it in our society through our work, relationships and presence there.”
-- Andrew Schneider

Empowered Storytelling

We all have our own life story. It is filled with relationships and events that help shape who we are and what we believe to be true about the world. Depending on our perspective and willingness to grow, our experiences can become fodder for negativity and patterns of playing the victim, or they can fuel a life of empowerment and continued self-development. It is the story we tell ourselves about what happens that makes all the difference.

Take a moment to look at the life story you create for yourself on an ongoing basis. If you generally feel peaceful about the past and trust in your ability to handle whatever comes your way, then you are framing circumstances in a manner that serves you well. On the other hand, if you retain a lot of guilt or resentment and often feel weighed down by life, you may want to start telling yourself a new version of past and present events. No matter who the characters are in your story or what they have done, you are the only one who can give their actions the meaning they will have for you. You are the only one who can define what role you will play in your own life. By taking responsibility for your story, you are able to learn and grow, forgive and find compassion, and most importantly, move on into a brighter future.

From now on, you can choose a life story that supports you. Let it be proof of your own resilience and creativity. Be kind with the roles you give yourself and generous with how many chances you get to learn what you need to know. When you remember that you are the author of your own story, you are free to create a masterpiece.

Buddhist Inspiration ...

All sentient beings are exactly the same in that every one desires happiness and seeks to avoid misery. We are not isolated entities disconnected from each other. The happiness and suffering of other beings affect us. This mutual relation is obvious. Sentient beings have been kind and have benefited us directly and indirectly throughout beginningless time. These beings are intrinsically the same as us in their pursuit of happiness and effort to avoid suffering. Thus, it is essentially logical for us to train in cultivating an impartial attitude wishing for the happiness of all beings---Stages of Meditation

Playlist for the Day


The evergreen forest Hemlock tree is not to be confused with the poisonous parsley-like weed of the same name. Visually it would be easier to confuse Hemlock with spruce or balsam fir trees. Hemlock needles are flat like the fir, but are much shorter and have a short stem attaching them to the twig (whereas balsam fir needles have no stem). The strength of the tannin in Hemlock bark makes it an excellent astringent. However, this high astringency has DANGEROUS ABORTIVE EFFECTS and therefore the bark should not be taken during pregnancy. Large doses can also knot up the stomach ( a property which might however render it a good remedy for diarrhea). The first European to be introduced to the hemlock tree was Jacques Cartier, the 16th century French explorer in 1525. When his crew was in danger from sickening and dying from scurvy he asked the neighbouring Iroquois people for help. They supplied him with the bark and leaves of "annedda" ( which is the Onandaga name for Hemlock) and instructions on its use. Boiled in water the tea was drunk every two days and poultices of the tea were applied to the swollen and sick limbs of Cartier's men. Cartier subsequently reported that " AS soon as they had drunk they felt better, which they found a true and evident miracle for of all the sicknesses they had suffered from after having drunk two or three times they recovered their health and were cured, so that some of the company who had had syphilis for more than five or six years before getting this sickness (scurvy) by this medicine were completely cured". Since then people have drunk Hemlock tea for its high vitamin C content. The Iroquois drank it for centuries as their common table tea, especially in the winter when they were limited to stored food and needed the extra vitamins and more>>>...

Heron Symbolism

Heron comes into our lives to teach us the power of precision. When we make decisions in our lives with precision, everything we do reaches a heightened level of effectiveness. We waste no energy, we conserve our internal power, and we save time! Heron comes into your life to teach lessons regarding learning grace. We can overcome our shyness of our own body with heron energy, and learn how to express grace regardless of what we look like, or our personality. Heron teaches us the value of watching and waiting in order to get what you need. In other words, heron teaches us the value of patience. It is not a passive patience, but an active one. We wait in our lives to grab opportunity when it arises, it is not a passive patience waiting for life to happen to more>>...

Consciousness: The Untamed Frontier Of Cognitive Science

In a mood-lit University of Quebec auditorium with red velvet seating, hundreds of researchers gather for the 2012 Summer Institute in Cognitive Science. Some of the field's biggest names are in attendance -- there's emininent philosopher John Searle, to whom we owe the"Chinese room" thought experiment; rabble-rouser Dan Dennett, who argues with panache that self-awareness is an illusion; Stevan Harnad, the theorist who reshaped robotics in his youth by defining the (still unsolved) "symbol grounding" problem"; and Simon Baron-Cohen, psychopathologist and top expert on autism. While the world celebrates the discovery of the Higgs boson, these scientists are hard at work on one of the most profound mysteries left: Why, and how, did humans became conscious? more>>>...

A Word on 'The Akashic Records'

These are found in the buffer zone between the astral and mental worlds, part astral part mental and, in a way, extending into all levels. They are a record of every thought and event that has ever occurred, like a huge, infinite, mental history, picture book. The Akashic records also contain probabilities stemming from, and created by, past events, actions and thoughts. This is like looking into the future. To make any kind of sense of the Akashic records yourself, some skill in clairvoyance is a definite help.

If you tune into the Akashic records yourself you will normally see those events with the greatest amount energy around them. Wars and disasters are the easiest to see because of this. The energy surrounding these events make them stand out above all the rest, making them easier to see. If you look into the future, the area of probabilities, you enter into a confusing maelstrom of symbolism mixed with actual more>>>...
