Bringing to Consciousness America’s Unconscious Shadows
by Marianne Williamson
Posted October 8, 2021
America is like an alcoholic family, in which no one is really saying what’s going on, the children are registering all the unprocessed realities but don’t know what to do with them, and anyone who speaks up and tells the truth is likely to be severely punished.
We can’t send the country to rehab, but we can at least try to be honest with ourselves about what’s happening. And that is no small deal. As more and more Americans bring to consciousness the unconscious shadows of our national identity, the country will begin to heal.
A lot of it is stuff we’ve all heard, but still it’s worth going over to make sure our thinking is aligned with what’s true.
In 1776, 56 men signed the Declaration of Independence, and the document was an extraordinary statement of human possibility. It was a gigantic step forward for the human race not only politically but also spiritually. For it posited the notion – what would have been considered until then a preposterous perspective – that God created all men equal. More…
What the heck is a time crystal, and why are physicists obsessed with them?
By Rahul Rao
Posted October 4, 2021
Some of today’s quantum physicists are tinkering with an esoteric phase of matter that seems to disobey some of our laws of physics. You’re probably quite familiar with the basic states of matter—solid, liquid, gas—that fill everyday life on Earth.
But those three different sorts of matter that each look and act differently aren’t the whole of the universe—far from it. Scientists have discovered (or created) dozens of more exotic states of matter, often bearing mystical and fanciful names: superfluids, Bose-Einstein condensates, and neutron-degenerate matter, to name a few.
In the last few years, physicists around the world have been constructing another state of matter: a “time crystal.” If that seems like B-movie technobabble, it’s technobabble no longer. Using a quantum computer, a few researchers have created a time crystal that, they think, firmly establishes time crystals in the world of physics.
The researchers haven’t yet formally published their research, but last month, they posted a preprint (a scientific paper that has yet-to-be peer-edited) on the website ArXiV. More…

Travesty of Justice
by Marianne Williamson
Posted October 2, 2021
One of the most compelling court cases in recent years is the prosecution of human rights and environmental lawyer Steven Donziger by Chevron Oil.
Yes, you read that correctly.
A multi-national fossil fuel giant was able to use a US courtroom to prosecute – and sentence to prison! – a Harvard educated environmental lawyer who led a team that successfully challenged their criminal drilling practices in the Ecuadorian Amazon. The case has sent shivers through the environmental movement, signally as it does the viciousness with which oil conglomerates will come after those who dare to threaten their hegemony.
Donziger before his sentencing today
In the 1960’s Texaco Oil began illegal drilling in Ecuador, intentionally saving $3 a pit by refusing to line them. This caused devastating carcinogenic effects on water, food and air – on which thousands of farmers depended for their survival. Chevron bought Texaco in the year 2000, yet when the Supreme Court of Ecuador handed down a judgement of $9.5B that Chevron owed in compensation to the Ecuadorian farmers, the company refused to pay the judgement – and decided to come after Steven Donziger instead!
The saga of Chevron’s perversion of the law and denial of justice for the people of Ecuador reached a new chapter as Donziger was even denied bail pending appeal of the decision. His legal team has one week to challenge that denial and if he loses he will have to report to federal prison for six months to appeal while incarcerated. While this is another slap in the face to environment justice, Chevron, their lawyers at Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, Kaplan, Preska and Rita Glavin of Seward and Kissel have only succeeded in generating more support for Donziger and the movement for justice in Ecuador.

A transnational corporation was able to use a US courtroom to prosecute – and sentence to prison! – a Harvard educated environmental lawyer who led a team that successfully challenged their criminal drilling practices in the Ecuadorian Amazon. The Biden Administration’s Dept fo Justice has refused to intervene in this case.
Now that corporations can use the judicial system to imprison environmental lawyers, what would be your recourse if your water supplies were contaminated by a corporation? Would the judicial system represent the interests of the corporation or the victims?
No Rulers, No Masters, No Gods
by Gary Z McGee
Posted October 2, 2021
We do not need rulers because we can rule ourselves. We do not need masters because we can master ourselves. We do not need A God because everything is already God.
Problems arise when we allow others to rule us or other people. Problems arise when we allow others to master us or other people. Problems arise when we allow others to dictate God to us or to other people.
What problems tend to arise? Many: Violence, rape, coercion, slavery, and forced compliance despite consent are the most typical and egregious.
Governing the precept that humans are fallible, imperfect, and prone to make mistakes, especially when it comes to power, it stands to reason that confiding in a system made up of humans wielding power over others is absurd. It’s circular reasoning at its worst.
There must be checks and balances. Once we’ve accepted our own fallibility, we are more likely to be compassionate toward other fallible beings. But we are also more likely to recognize fallibility and to help correct it. More…

CHEVRON V. DONZIGER: Why it should matter to all of us
by Marianne Williamson
Posted September 30, 2021
We all know environmental degradation is an existential threat to our species. We’ve heard it enough times. We get it.
We also know fossil fuel companies are resisting the changes we must make in order to avoid overwhelming catastrophes. We get that too.
What we don’t always realize is the lengths to which fossil fuel companies will go in order to silence the resistors, shut down the opposition, and avoid consequences for their egregious actions. When we do know – when we’re informed – it should awaken all of us. For what they can do to anyone, they could one day do to you.
Steven Donziger is a Harvard law school graduate who went to Ecuador in the 1990’s. He was traveling with a team of lawyers and doctors to view the horrific evidence that Texaco, an oil giant since bought by Chevron, had poisoned a huge swath of the Ecuadorian Amazon during oil drilling in the 1960’s, 1970’s and 1980’s. What they saw were the results of a massive and man-made environmental disaster that poisoned the water, earth and food of tens of thousands of people. Worst of all, the evidence indicated it was done deliberately as part of an engineering plan to save $3 per barrel. This horror was not an accident. More…
The US Department of Justice has overtly shown how much it has been captured by corporate interests by refusing to intervene in this blatant abuse of the judicial system.
If corporations are allowed to get away with using their financial might to undermine justice, how can we say that we have a fair and impartial judicial system? What would happen if Chevron gets away with this and a corporation poisoned your water supplies? What recourse would you have?
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.
