In this very well produced and very saddening documentary about a lawless region of Brazil’s amazon, a brave young film maker spends time with people who are the last line of defense for the rainforest. A must see.
Profound changes are coming to our planet, a transformation of the world as we now know it. Our civilization will give rise to a new era. That which cannot be seen… will be seen. But only by those who choose love and not fear. Choose love.
You can live a life in balance with Nature. Nick Ritar, permaculture farmer and educator can teach us how. In this talk at TEDxCanberra 2011, Nick Ritar challenges us to overcome the fears we have built up as a society and to embrace a more sustainable lifestyle; one embodied by permaculture.
Time lapse photography from NASA give a whole new view of our magnificent planet. From vast electric storms to the Northern lights, nothing is more inspirational than acknowledging nature’s beauty and majesty, then learning how to live life in cooperation with nature. We are truly blessed to be humans on such a divine planet.
Health care? In place of a few huge, high-tech hospitals dispensing the most expensive care possible, all the data suggest we’d be healthier with lots of primary and preventive care from physicians’ assistants and nurse practitioners in our neighborhoods. Banking? Instead of putting more than half our assets in half a dozen money-center banks that devote themselves to baroque financial instruments, we need capital closer to home, where loan officers have some sense for gauging risk and need.
The Galactic Federation of Light Workers speaks about the struggle for the human race and the cosmic forces at play. Do not fear, people of the world, the battle has already been won in our favor.
The LTAR experiment shows that organic crops can remain competitive with conventional crops even during the three-year transition. Averaged over 13 years, yields of organic corn, soybean, and oats have been equivalent to or slightly greater than their conventional counterparts. Likewise, a 12-year average for alfalfa and an 8-year average for winter wheat also show no significant difference between organic yields and the Adair County average.
Renowned cosmic researcher Graham Hancock visits Utah for a tour of the 5000+ year old petroglyphs and rock art found inscribed in the walls of red rock. Drawing from his knowledge of ancient civilizations, Graham makes profound comparisons to art found in other parts of the world and considers the great mystery involved in such universal communication.
Step by step demonstration on how to make a self fertilizing keyhole vegetable planter. This idea and design comes from traditional African techniques.
Everyone knows describing something can never take the place of an experience. You can write books about what it’s like to fully submerge your body in water, but it will never come close to actually doing it. If you’ve ever had a psychedelic, kundalini or peak experience of any kind, this word limitation and restriction comes front and center to your consciousness.
A reassuring sign of the times. Let’s face it, we cannot wait for the molasses slow mechanisms of government to right its wrongs and make genuine public health a priority. Hats off to entrepreneurs with the foresight and courage to implement solutions to problems like publicly fluoridated water. I hope this video inspires other business owners and individuals to take this issue more seriously, and to lead the way away from this industrial pollution called municipal water.
Ownership is an illusion. Property, a thing or things belonging to someone, gives you the idea that you actually ‘have’ something. That something is ‘yours’. And our society is entrenched with this very thought.
Here is what I thought that day as the dolphins swam by our boat in the Gulf: these sentient beings, these families, are now swimming through 200 million gallons of oil and millions of gallons of dispersants. A people that rarely have empathy with Homo sapiens from other parts of the world, and that only recently released a substantial percentage of its own population from human slavery, may not be expected to have empathy with Tursiops truncates.
Get to know your extended neighborhood: the folks right here at home who spend their lives making beautiful things: potters, weavers, musicians, glass blowers, book writers, organic farmers, fishermen, bakers, florists, woodworkers, orchardists, cheese makers, ballon twisters, and on and on — but only buy stuff made in America.
The police and the military work for the money men. The perversion specialists warp the culture through facetious and gratuitous laws that transform perception by legal decree; it’s the law, it must be right. The police and military are those whose conscience has adapted itself to the performance of any and every outrage in exchange for a paycheck. They are enforcing the law and the law must be right.
It is hard to measure how much money you save buying organic in terms of your health. But one thing is for sure, you DO save money. By buying organic, you won’t be subjecting your body to all the negative aspects of conventional food. Thinking will be enhanced, and you’ll notice your health problems disappear one by one, assuming you are eating a nutrient-rich diet full of organic superfoods and fresh produce. I think you’ll find this very enlightening – the money you actually save by making less visits to the drug store and feeling better.
The anxiety pills worked to relax me, but the depression pill made me feel so uncomfortable and weird that I had to place an emergency call to my doctor that same evening explaining that I was not only confused, nervous, and having cold sweats, but I was leaking bodily fluids and mildly twitching all over. Urging me to remain calm, he told me the side effects were very normal and that I would grow accustomed to them over time, adding that I should continue both medications, even increasing their dosages at the end of the week. That turned out to be the last anti-depressant pill I’ve ever taken.
The moon’s mysterious introduction into an earthbound orbit still puzzles scientists, esoteric philosphers and ancient historians alike. While physicists puzzle over the anomalous characterists of the moon, many ancient tales and writings refer to a time “before the moon”.
