Money and Spirituality – 5 Common Abundance Blocks, and How to Transform Them
By Juliet Tang
Posted May 21, 2017
Money is a touchy topic for many given we live in a world where most of us have been programmed to buy into the belief that there is not enough, and we have most likely at some point in our lives witnessed and experienced (or are witnessing and experiencing) a state of lack. More often than not, it is a subject that triggers emotions such as anger, anxiety, insecurity and frustration since, in our society, our relationship with money is tied to our experience of abundance, security and freedom.
The purpose of this article is not to discuss the philosophical or political aspects of money, it is to guide you in the process of examining, and perhaps shifting, your own relationship with this specific form of energy exchange, should you feel inspired. More…
Peoples’ Tribunal Finds Monsanto in Violation of Human Rights
by Deirdre Fulton
Posted May 4, 2017
Biotech giant Monsanto “has engaged in practices which have negatively impacted the right to a healthy environment, the right to food, and the right to health,” five international judges comprising the “Monsanto Tribunal” declared Tuesday.
The panel, which heard two days of testimony outside the Hague in October and spent the months since reviewing the evidence, concluded that “if such a crime of ecocide were recognized in international criminal law, the activities of Monsanto could possibly constitute” such a crime, citing its widespread dissemination of “dangerous agrochemicals in industrial agriculture;” “the engineering, production, introduction, and release of genetically engineered crops;” and “the introduction of persistent organic pollutants such as PCB into the environment.”
Convened by civil society groups including the Organic Consumers Association, Navdanya, IFOAM Organics International, the Biovision Foundation, and Regeneration International, the tribunal’s findings are not legally binding. However, they bolster the coalition’s larger effort “to liberate our seeds and soils, our communities and societies, our planet and ourselves, from poisons and the rule of the poison cartel,” as Navdanya founder Vandana Shiva wrote last year.

The biggest story here is that civil society itself has stepped in to fill the void where the corporate controlled judicial system has failed to protect the planet and its inhabitants.
Institutes for Technologies of Reunion

When I graduated from high school in 1985, college was the unquestionable next step for an intelligent, middle-class or upper-middle class young person. I entered an elite school not out of any particular ambition, but because the story that surrounded me said that this is how to do life. College, and probably further degrees thereafter, was the path to full participation in society.
The problem was that deep down, I didn’t want to fully participate in society. I sensed a wrongness at the base of things. As I learned more about the workings of the world, I didn’t want to be part of it. Even the public service paths that elite education could prepare me for seemed themselves to be still part of the same system. More…
Morbid Inequality: Now Just SIX Men Have as Much Wealth as Half the World’s Population
By Paul Buchheit
Posted April 21, 2017
While the United States is ranked 37th in the world in education spending, the 14 richest Americans earned enough money from their investments in 2015 to hire two million preschool teachers.
Yes, inequality is getting worse every year. In early 2016, Oxfam reported that just 62 individuals held the same wealth as the bottom half of humanity. About a year later Oxfam reported that just 8 men had the same wealth as the world’s bottom half. Now, based on the same methodology and data sources used by Oxfam, that number is down to 6. More…
The Control System is Revealing Itself
by Phillip J. Watt

This is the opportunity we’ve been waiting for. This is the moment when we can choose to be truly free, or choose our enslavement. We’re watching a split in the deep state which is undermining the oligarchical grip on our shared resources and systems, illustrating how weak they really are.
We’re watching huge droves of people slip deeper into deception and delusion, whilst many others are enacting on their courage to face both personal and impersonal truths – as hard as it might be – to raise their level of awareness.
And we’re also watching most of humanity unconsciously meander towards a crossroad; one path will lead us to decentralize and localize our management structures, and the other will ensure the further erosion of our personal and community sovereignty by a corporatocracy disguised as a government, which falsely alleges it takes care of ‘the people’.

How To Live In Interesting Times
By (Channeled by) Andrea Seiver
Posted April 8, 2017
My friends, you are indeed living in interesting times. Politically and otherwise, the recent past has been most stressful for many of you. I’m not just referring to effects of the campaign and election in the United States and to other developments around the globe. They are just the tip of the iceberg. The U.S. election and the run-up to it, for example, are only a clear mirror for the pain, fear, and anger that you have all been feeling in a world full of upheaval and change. All of you are feeling pushed and pulled and battered by the turbulent energies around you, and are longing for a less insane world to live in.
When you look at your everyday world, it can be disheartening. You see an incredible number of events and crises around the globe that you haven’t found ways to effectively handle. And with the worldwide media, you’re more aware of all of these than ever before. Many of you, even those of you who are evolving most rapidly, may be having a hard time. For most of you, your immediate response to all this is that you are paralyzed or polarized. More..
What It Takes to Change Hearts and Minds
By Colin Beavan

To get someone’s support, you need more than just facts. Some years ago, the communications psychologist John Marshall Roberts said at a talk I attended that there are three ways of converting people to a cause: by threat of force, by intellectual argument, and by inspiration.
The most effective of these methods, Roberts said, is aligning communication about your cause with the most deeply-held values and aspirations of your friends, relatives, neighbors, and fellow citizens. To get people’s total, lasting, and unwavering support, in other words, we should try neither to cajole them judgmentally nor convince them forcefully. We should inspire them toward a vision that they—not we—can really care about.
Which points to the potential problem of blindly using facts and science—be it climate science or demographic science—to “prove” the righteousness of our causes. Research shows that people tend to embrace data that support their life views and reject data that refute them. More…
Dear Family and Friends: it’s Time to Wake Up
by Phillip J. Watt
Posted March 26, 2017
I know you’ve struggled to deal with many of the harsh truths of the world, yet there’s also so much brilliance to this reality that I don’t want you to miss out on as well. But to feel that side of the coin, it’s necessary to face how it all works on the systemic and material levels.
It’s no surprise to anyone that greed and vanity has spread like wildfire across our modern minds. So much so that our collective heart has been suffocating under their toxic weight. Yet there’s no need to despair; there are many people who have stepped into the authenticity of their heart and are working towards bringing some sanity, honor and justice to our mad world.
War. Poverty. Rape. Hatred. The list goes on. These realities might be ‘normal’ in the context of humanity’s history, but it doesn’t always need to be this way. We literally have the technology, know-how and spirit to finally create an existence where the basic needs of humanity are met, especially that deep sense of communion and comradery with our fellow-man which most of us are missing.
