8 Signs You are Leaving the System
by Lauren Simpson-Green
Posted December 27, 2018
These are wonderful times we are living in. Apparently, high levels of Gamma rays are washing over the planet, and we’re being lifted, dangerously, forcefully, but inextricably towards the light. Apparently our bodies are going from carbon to crystalline, and our DNA is being upgraded. I don’t know what is happening, but there certainly is something in the air.
You are becoming aware that the films you used to so love and enjoy leave you on a lower frequency than where you’d like to be. And that’s the Art House ones. You now avoid blockbusters that glorify violence and war as well as unhealthy sexual relationships like the plague.
Your life goals are shifting in that they’re simplifying. You’re also being less hard on yourself. Most of your karma you sense has been repaid, and now you are left with a wonderful opportunity to create whatever you want. The world is your oyster, and although there are scars, you’re excited. You now sense that you don’t have to formulate goals as such, but more of a clear intention. More…
Why Mister Rogers’ Message Of Love And Kindness Is Good For Your Health
by Richard Gunderman
Posted December 25, 2018
Rogers believed that the need to love and be loved was universal, and he sought to cultivate these capacities through every program, saying in a 2004 documentary hosted by actor Michael Keaton, one of his former stagehands, “You know, I think everybody longs to be loved, and longs to know that he or she is lovable. And consequently, the greatest thing we can do is to help somebody know they’re loved and capable of loving.”
Since Rogers’ death, evidence has mounted that he was on to something – namely, that love and kindness truly are healthful, and that people who express them regularly really do lead healthier lives. Simply put, people who are generous and volunteer their time for the benefit of others seem to be happier than those who don’t, and happy people tend to have fewer health complaints and live longer than those who are unhappy.

Coming Out Of The Consciousness Closet! What To Do When You’re The Only One Awake!
By Nanice Ellis
Posted December 24, 2018
When everyone you know and love is asleep and you’re the only one awake, the world can sure seem lonely and even unfriendly at times.
While the concept of awakening can have many definitions, in a nutshell, awakening can be summarized as the rising of consciousness, and this means that regardless of path or process, the more conscious we become, the more we awaken.
Although the process of awakening can be a wonderful thing, it can also be quite challenging. In fact, if you’re one of the first in your family or community to awaken, “coming out” as a conscious being can be one of the most difficult things you ever do! Not surprisingly, many conscious people choose to hide, in what I call the “Consciousness Closet.” More…
Awakening – The Storm Before the Calm
by Rosanne Lindsay
Posted December 22, 2018
Power grabs by systems … political, governmental, religious… using fear-based tactics, are a desperate, last gasp effort to maintain control. To the extent that they achieve any control is only because we allow it. We allow others to control us when we give up responsibility to nurture our divine selves. When we consent to draconian laws, and beg for rights, we ensure our enslavement. Natural rights are inherent rights. Rights granted by governments are mere privileges that can be taken away, on a whim. All government law is contract law and ignores the spirit of the law because it ignores the spirit.
During this time of awakening, you may feel out of balance physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. You may experience migraines, joint pains, and sleep problems. These are normal and natural during soul growth spurts. You may experience breakdown in relationships, a job, or your health. You can choose whether your awakening process will be experienced as a roadblock or as a steppingstone by the choices you make on a daily basis. Question whether you automatically resort to drugs, which only suppresses symptoms. More…
The Importance of Quiet Time
by Alan Lightman
Posted December 14, 2018
I believe that we can develop a new habit of mind toward the wired world, but it will take time. We will first need to recognize the danger. Certainly, younger people should take some responsibility for their addiction to the wired world at the expense of their inner selves. But shouldn’t we who created that world take more responsibility? We are victims ourselves, but we are also the perpetrators. Don’t we owe all of our children a world in which their contemplative lives are valued and supported? Don’t we owe it to ourselves?
Although changing habits of mind is difficult, it can be done. With a little determination, each of us can find a half hour a day to waste time. And when we do so, we give ourselves a gift. It is a gift to our spirit. It is an honoring of that quiet, whispering voice. It is a liberation from the cage of the wired world. It is freedom. Decades ago, when I was that boy walking home from school through the woods, following turtles as they slowly lumbered down a dirt path, wasting hours as I watched tadpoles in the shallows or the sway of water grasses in the wind, I was free. We cannot return to that world, nor would we necessarily want to, but we can create some of that space within our world today. We can create a preserve within our own minds. More…
Initiation into a Living Planet
By Charles Eisenstein
Posted December 2, 2018
Most people have passed through some kind of initiation in life. By that, I mean a crisis that defies what you knew and what you were. From the rubble of the ensuing collapse, a new self is born into a new world.
Societies can also pass through an initiation. That is what climate change poses to the present global civilization. It is not a mere “problem” that we can solve from the currently dominant worldview and its solution-set but asks us to inhabit a new Story of the People and a new (and ancient) relationship to the rest of life.

The Best Way to Manage Slaves (And How to Avoid Becoming One)
by Gary Z McGee
Posted November 30, 2018
Basically, the best way to manage slaves is to convince them that they are free so that they don’t rebel against a corrupt system, and so that they diligently work for the system no matter how sick it makes them. This is one of those rare occasions where it is easier done than said.
And it’s being done, en masse, the world over. It takes the seemingly benign form of statism. But it is most definitely malignant in that it tricks people into slavery by lording comfort, security, safety and the illusion of freedom over their heads, and by being irresponsible with its overreaching power.
In short: the best way to manage slaves is to erect a state, and to declare that state almighty by forcing people to consent to its law and order no matter how unreasonable, unjust, or violent that law and order may be. More…
Jeff Bezos Puts The Pentagon On His Monopoly Board
by Jason Ditz
Posted November 29, 2018
While employees at Google and Microsoft are wary of collaborating with the military, Amazon revels in it…
Being the Pentagon’s friendly partner could come with potential costs. Bezos is setting Amazon up as an amoral alternative to the other major technology companies. When a Pentagon project breaks bad and the public starts asking how all this could have happened, the answer will be Amazon.
A recent test case for this was the NSA’s surveillance of the American public. Intended to be done entirely in secret, when it was revealed that the major telecoms were complicit, even though they were effectively forced by secret court orders to cooperate, their reputations suffered a hit. Customers began asking whether their privacy was safe with AT&T or Verizon.
Amazon is going down a risky path. They say that if you lie down with dogs, you get up with fleas, and Amazon has made a conscious decision to climb into bed with some of the Pentagon’s most flea-bitten projects. If it wakes up in a mess, let’s make sure no one claims they didn’t see it coming. More…
