Aligning with Our Soul Purpose
By Jessie Klassen
Posted December 25, 2017
During this exciting time upon our earth, we hear much about “living our purpose.” But, as I know from experience, this is much easier said than done. It’s not that any of us don’t want to be living our soul purpose, and we know when there is something not quite aligned or flowing within our lives — but so many of the ways to get there are either elusive or hard to grasp at best, because, quite frankly, in our society we are not taught to live our life purpose. We are taught not to value our passions but to find a career and earn a decent income, and many career paths don’t feel like they are part of our soul purpose at all. We also have this idea that to be successful, we should be working long hours and should feel stressed out…
But as I discovered (and I am still getting there, as I feel we are always “getting there”) I was making it much more complicated than it had to be. For a long time, I was under the illusion that perhaps I missed something, or I had taken a wrong turn, when in fact, I hadn’t. My experiences, my life, were actually all a culmination of my purpose, and before I knew it, I had “become my purpose” just by being me. Because we all have a gift. And we all have this gift to share with the world, otherwise, we wouldn’t be here. There are no extras here in this movie of life. More…
Top Five Regrets Of The Dying
By Dr. Joseph Mercola
Posted December 24, 2017
Regrets. We all have them — things said or done; things left unsaid or undone. Paths that weren’t followed; opportunities missed due to fear or insecurity. The list is long, but one of the biggest regrets in life reported by a large number of people is not being there for someone at the end of life.1 In other words, being too busy with “life” to tend to those near death.
Interestingly, while a regret can be phrased either as an action or as an inaction (“I wish I had not quit high school,” versus “I wish I had stayed in high school”), regrets framed as actions tend to be more emotionally intense than regrets about inactions, but inactions tend to be longer lasting.

The Responsibility of Freedom
by Julian Rose
Posted December 23, 2017
Real freedom is wholeness. And wholeness is the putting back together of that which has been made separate. The spiritual is all too often seen as disconnected from the physical and practical. And the practical and physical seen as separate from the spiritual. Separate entities. The powers of the spirit plane remain divorced, and even in opposition, to the powers of the material plane. Indeed, one is often considered superior to the other. As two halves, neither one is whole. Without integration, both remain only half of what they should be. Only half of what they are.
The maintaining of this division is the key trick played on us by our oppressors. It is the Ace card in their control pack. We need to recognize this and act on it. More…
Changing the “Lord’s Prayer”: Good theology, better economics
by Mike Krauss
Posted December 18, 2017
Pope Francis has proposed a re-write of the English language version of the “Lord’s Prayer.” The words “Lead us not into temptation” will be revised. The Pope argues this a poor translation from the original (from Aramaic to Greek to Latin to English) and contrary to the nature of a God who does not lead us into temptation. We get there all on our own, thank you very much.
But inasmuch as the Pope has opened a discussion, I have a suggestion.
The familiar words in the prayer of most Christian churches, “Forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us” are not the words of Christ as recorded in the Gospel of Matthew. They were, “And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors,” and should also be revised accordingly. More…
You Are a Sovereign Being – Time to Start Acting Like It
by Jeff Street
Posted November 30, 2017
There is a growing awareness and indignation about the injustice and inequality running rampant in our world, and growing interest in creating the better world that we all know can exist. One of the key changes that needs to happen to enable the transformation of our humanity is to reclaim our personal power to think for ourselves, to discern truth from disinformation, and to stand firm for what we know is right.
The Source that created us endowed us with free-will and the power to create with our thoughts, words, and deeds. Yet many of us are squandering these endowments, squandering them so badly that the probable future of humanity is not looking very bright. Humanity is at a critical junction in its history — one road leads to a very bleak future, and the other has the potential to be a new golden age. The outcome depends on us, each one of us, starting right now and it starts by freeing your mind! The key to reclaiming our freedom and creating a better world is for each of us to reclaim our sovereignty. More…
The Global Reversal of the Social Evolution of Humanity
By Prof. John McMurtry and Biljana Đorović
Posted November 27, 2017
The depth of the abyss into which the world is falling is ever clearer to people, but not the cause or the way out. Could you give us some kind of structure to explain what is at the heart of this empire of chaos that is reigning across the world?
In a nutshell, social evolution itself has been reversed by a US-led war on social and ecological life organization driven by one corrupt master value – to free transnational corporations and their shareholders from social responsibility to multiply private fortunes without limit. It is a counter-revolution against the long development of democratic government and the welfare state that once crossed across the divisions of the Cold War.
The ultimate driver of the disorder can be explained in one underlying principle. The sole and absolute organizing principle of the world’s reproduction and growth is turning private money into maximally more money for private money controllers. The ‘empire of chaos’ is the result. More…
Psychopath vs. Empath: The War Between Evolution and Stagnation
by Gary ‘Z’ McGee
Posted November 23, 2017
Psychopaths are apathetic and have trouble empathizing with others; empaths are exemplary at putting themselves in the shoes of someone else. Psychopaths are about power and invulnerability; empaths are about empowerment and absolute vulnerability. Psychopaths are about ruthless individualism; empaths are about individualized interdependence. Psychopaths are indifferent, apathetic and emotionally shallow; empaths are deeply thoughtful and compassionate. Psychopaths are self-serious and insincere; empaths are humble and sincere. Psychopaths are overconfident and narrow-minded; empaths are confident but open-minded. Psychopaths are selfish and violent; empaths are selfless and loving. Psychopaths are rigid, inflexible, and intolerant; empaths are open, flexible, and tolerant.
But human nature is never so black and white. No one is all empathic or all psychopathic. Most people would probably fall somewhere in the middle on a bell curve. And nobody knows for sure if anybody is 100% psychopathic or empathic or even if anyone can be. More…
Got Difficult People in Your Life? Think of Them as Teachers
by Traci Pedersen
Posted November 17, 2017
Just as our earth is a mix of terrain—from grassy hills and rivers to volcanoes and deserts—so is it filled with many types of individuals. While some people are as serene as an ancient forest, others are about as comfortable as a bed of rocks. What happens when one of these people plays a major role in our lives? Perhaps it’s a boss, parent, friend or sibling. How does one stay kind and forgiving and yet keep personal boundaries and a sense of dignity?
It is in the hard times, not the easy times, that our level of growth thus far is revealed. And only then can we recognize and strive for higher ground. Difficult circumstances—and difficult people—tend to reveal our innermost feelings rather than create them. More…
