Signs That Synchronicity Exists: The Evidence
by Helen Elizabeth Williams
Posted September 20, 2021
If you have, you’ve already experienced what Carl Jung, a psychiatrist from Switzerland, defined as “synchronicity”. Here’s everything you need to know about it to understand that it really exists.
Simply put, it is that sweet coincidence you often do not associate with other events and/or experiences.
So what if the person you were thinking about a few moments ago just walked into the room? It was just a happy coincidence, wasn’t it? And that perfectly opportune job offer; well, it was pure luck!
Finding good people everywhere you go is often pinned on good fortune. But in the eye of synchronicity, such coincidences are actually the result of interconnectedness of the universe. More…

Surviving Times of Deep Despair
by Marianne Williamson
Posted August 31, 2021
From extreme hurricanes to out of control fires to tragic evacuations to terrorist attacks to a persistent pandemic to neo-fascists among us to rising homelessness to political corruption to teenagers at risk to cruel evictions to various other signs of a system discombobulating, anyone not feeling a bit off today is either meditating regularly or artificially calmed.
It’s amusing to me how the pseudo-intellectual crowd so often projects onto spiritual seekers a lack of sophistication. In fact, it’s the spiritual seekers among us who have been very, very clear that the shit was going to hit the fan this way. And why? Because the Law of Cause and Effect is inviolable. A civilization cannot treat life the way we have treated life for decades – so irreverently, so irresponsibly, so without love – and not at some point or another have to face the consequences.
Right now we need a critical mass of people who truly understand that nothing less than a radical departure from the lovelessness of our current personal, political and economic ways of functioning represents for any of us a survivable future.
Whatever you do, don’t worry about the “majority”. The majority has never been the spark that changed the world. The majority didn’t wake up one morning and go, “Hey, let’s end slavery!” The majority didn’t wake up one morning and go, “Hey, I have a great idea. Let’s give women the right to vote!” Hardly. The status quo never disrupts itself. Change begins with a small group of outliers usually considered outrageous radicals by the status quo of their time, who simply have a better idea. An idea more aligned with nature. An idea more aligned with love. Over time, the arc bends in their direction. More…

Fear Is Contagious and Used to Control You
by Dr. Joseph Mercola
Posted August 19, 2021
In a recent Tweet,9 Ivor Cummins, a biochemical engineer who researches the root causes of chronic disease, shared a short video detailing the root cause of the panic pandemic. Why has the whole world seemingly gone mad from fear?
As explained by Cummins, the outsized level of public fear is the result of a catastrophic feedback loop system where political and mainstream media drivers are pushing fear onto the public, and public fears are then feeding the media (fear sells) and pushing politicians to take action, which generates more fear messages. And so, round and round it goes.
However, at a certain point, this engine of fear starts losing steam. To keep the pandemic pandemonium going, academics bearing doomsday predictions were brought in to scare politicians and provide more fearporn fodder for the media.
Aiding the academic drivers are unelected, undemocratic organizations such as the World Health Organization, the World Economic Forum, the United Nations, the International Monetary Fund, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and Big Pharma (just to name a few), all of which support these academic doomsday prophets from behind the scenes or openly promote them.

Does the PCR Test Affect the Pineal Gland?
By Peter Koenig
Posted August 7, 2021
Dr. Astrid Stuckelberger, an international health scientist, clinical and epidemiological researcher and faculty member of the Universities of Geneva and Lausanne, as well as a former WHO insider, talks in an 18-min. video clip about “the plan” WHO and 193 UN member states are pushing to implement.
Astrid Stuckelberger provides insights into the inner works of WHO. She explains how the actions of WHO violate their own regulations.
She says that the pandemic is organized internationally in a systemic way. “What is shocking”, she says, “is that they are all saying exactly the same thing, all media, all newspapers, all airports – in all UN countries…”
Dr. Stuckelberger goes on saying – and I am paraphrasing – that the different task forces of experts advising the decision makers are all fraught in conflict of interest, because they have been told what they have to advise, that they were dismantled many times since the beginning of the “plandemic” by real scientists, but these real scientists, who present real science are not published, because all the media are bought.

Trees Have No Voice

Ecosystems have degraded at an alarming rate; here’s what can be done.
The Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) report from 2019 provides stunning examples of the scale of the destruction:
- One million of the estimated 8 million species of plants and animals are threatened with extinction.
- Human actions have driven at least 680 vertebrate species to extinction since 1500, with global vertebrate species populations dropping by 68 percent in around the last 50 years.
- The abundance of wild insects has fallen by 50 percent.
- Over 9 percent of all domesticated mammal breeds used for food and agriculture had become extinct by 2016, with another thousand breeds currently facing extinction.
Ecosystem degradation is accelerated by capitalism, which intensifies pollution and waste, deforestation, land-use change and exploitation, and carbon-driven energy systems. For example, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s report, Climate Change and Land, (January 2020) notes that only 15 percent of known wetlands remain, most having been degraded beyond the possibility of recovery.

People Who Adopt These 7 Verbal Habits in 2021 Have Very High Emotional Intelligence
By Bill Murphy Jr.
Posted July 27, 2021
If there’s one area of self-improvement readers have told me they’d like to work on during 2021, it’s emotional intelligence. So, here are some simple verbal habits designed to do exactly that.
They’re easy, really: just a series of short phrases to memorize that will improve your conversations and make it more likely you’ll achieve your goals with others this year.
“Thanks. I’ll check in tomorrow.”
You don’t have to react right away, in other words.
Now, this doesn’t have to be so confrontational. Maybe you’re thinking about how to respond to a client who emails you at 4 p.m. to express second thoughts about an order. Maybe it’s a business partner who lets you know she doesn’t like the marketing materials you’ve spent the better part of a week working on.
So? Wait a day. Wait half a day. In short, wait however long you need in order to take control of your emotions, so that they can be a tool for you to use, not a challenge to overcome. More…
4 Ways to Transform the Self and Transcend
by Gary Z McGee
Posted July 16, 2021
There is a world beyond our perception, a world that is all at once far away, nearby, and invisible. It is there where infinity lives, where God dies and is reborn, where everything is connected to everything else.
This world sings with a voice older than worlds. It speaks with a silence louder than anything in existence. And yet, it can be heard. But to hear it, we must be using the correct technology: transcendent technology.
There are basically two types of transcendent technology to transform the self: soft and hard. Wilderness immersion, fasting, and drumming meditation are soft technologies that gently dissolve boundaries.
Hallucinogens, psychedelics, and other entheogenic tools are hard technologies that shatter the ego and break apart rigid perceptual paradigms of reality.
Either way, the purpose is to connect the wilderness within to the wilderness without; and to access the sacred coordinates of health, beauty, truth, and harmony. Let’s break it down…. More…
To Heal the Human Heart
by Robin Grille
Posted July 11, 2021
We grapple with empathy simply because we have yet to fully understand it. When we think that empathy has landed us in hot water, this is because we have not fully grasped its complexities and limitations. In defence of the vital function of empathy and its central role in human society, I would like to propose ten limitations and misconceptions that relate to human empathy. I believe it is these limitations that have caused some writers to be critical of empathy itself.
Caring behaviour – or what looks like caring behaviour on the surface – is not always necessarily driven by empathy. Sometimes helpful behaviour can be motivated by guilt, or the desire to gain approval or kudos. Sooner or later the difference becomes apparent, and the difference is big! Narcissistically driven ‘kindness’ is quickly extinguished when the external rewards – such as praise or congratulations – fail to materialize. It’s important to distinguish narcissistically-driven from authentic helpfulness, so that empathy does not get a bad name.
Empathy often gets confused with pity. What sets empathy apart from pity is that in empathy we don’t necessarily view the other person as powerless in the face of their predicament. The experience of empathy might move us to be helpful or supportive, without seeing the other person as a victim of their circumstance. Pity, on the other hand, is more likely to drive rescuing behaviour. More…
Meditation Is More Than Silence and Emptiness
by William Bloom
Posted July 10, 2021
There is an exciting dimension to meditation, which is often ignored or even dismissed. This is the exploration of altered states of consciousness, and mystic and psychic experiences.
There are several reasons for this omission. The first is a misunderstanding of the Buddhist idea of emptiness. Western interpretations have dumbed down sunyata (Sanskrit), a complex concept that attempts to describe meditators’ calm experience of infinite unknowing. This has been inaccurately interpreted to mean a void in which there is nothing but silence and emptiness. In fact, the void of sunyata is an infinite space that harmoniously includes and contains everything.
A second reason for ignoring the spirituality and metaphysics of meditation has been a utilitarian move to present meditation as a safe secular practice that soothes and supports wellbeing. The fear in education and medicine is that the metaphysical aspects of meditation will sabotage its mainstream acceptance. More…
