10 Things for Conscious People to Focus on in 2013

Dylan Charles, Editor
Waking Times

The long anticipated and prophesized year, 2012, has come and gone, yet, the problems and challenges facing mankind and planet earth remain. Those who have put stock in the idea of conscious evolution are now faced with the burden of proof: is there any legitimacy to this idea of a ‘shift?’

Some human experiences prove too extraordinary and too far outside of the purview of science and intellect to effectively put into words. Because of this, many people who have felt ‘the shift’ taking place in their lives in recent years, such as I, find it difficult to convey the significance of what we feel taking place in the realms of our own psyches and amongst the collective human consciousness. As a result, we are often at odds with family, friends, and colleagues who view conscious evolution as some sort of quackery or ‘new age’ jargon that has no practical value in a turbulent world where autocrats and a malignant elite are becomingly increasingly cancerous to prosperity, liberty and the eco-systems of planet earth.

Straddling this dichotomy, we must find actionable ways to demonstrate how the betterment of mankind is possible amongst the tidal wave of disasters and bad news confronting us all. In this challenge lies the greatest opportunity of our lives, yet if we rise to this challenge, our efforts will naturally combine with the efforts of other conscious people to assist in the betterment of our households, communities and nations.

But make no mistake, we are tasked with an overwhelming contest of will power and perseverance.

In order to help steel your resolve and open up your heart, I’ve compiled a short list of 10 things for conscious people focus on in 2013 that will give you a framework of daily action so that you can better engage the world in your understanding ‘the shift,’ and better exemplify the positive qualities of the human race.

So, let’s get to work.

  1. Dispel fear from your life.

    Kill it, once and for all. Bury it and never look back. The greatest force working against the rightful destiny of mankind is fear. Fear is the prime component of the control matrix and this human emotion alone is a more effective prison than even the gulags of Guantanamo Bay. We hear it on the radio, we see it on TV shows. Fear is king in the modern world and this king must be violently overthrown.

    Death is the ultimate fear of man, and reckoning with your own death is paramount to being an agent of positive change in the years to come. Behind death, we are programmed to fear pain of any kind, including physical pain and the pain of adverse economic conditions, the pain of perceived insecurity and the pain of feeling different amongst our peers.

    Stop running from pain. Stop masking it with material balms and mind-numbing medications and intoxications. Pain is your greatest teacher, and your greatest ally in your confrontation with fear. Use it, live with it, and let the pain of your broken expectations re-season and invigorate your life. Only once you have moved beyond being a pawn to fear can you truly make a difference in this cauldron of souls we call life.

  2. Improve the total self.

    We are sick and immature. We are unenlightened, apathetic and selfish. We are overweight, dumb, cruel and sensational. Yet we are simultaneously radiant, compassionate and capable of amazing acts of love. So what is your true, rightful nature? Where is your soul most alive and inspired? The total health of the individual is mandatory in addressing these questions. Become what you should be, alert, alive, awake, and happy.

    The physical body is the vehicle for the mind, which is an expression of the spirit. Yet without the foundation of a healthy body, the mind and spirit languish in decay. Start here, with a solid foundation. Purify, detoxify, and re-evaluate what you put into your body. Then feed the mind, nourishing it with ideas and positive thought, so that your spirit may flourish, inspiring you to move on to bigger and better things in life. Grow up and individuate, tackling your personal demons and honing your will power. In no time at all, with effort towards your personal improvement, you can complete revolutionize your personal reality for the better, regardless of any adversity that stalks you in life.

    The world needs people who are whole and healthy, within and without. Be this.

  3. Reconnect with this great Earth.

    Greater than any political crisis or national tragedy, the suffrages being waged against this planet will lead to more devastation and disruption than the mind can fathom. It’s time, right now, to engage yourself in goodwill towards our eco-systems and the life they support. You are nothing without a healthy planet and the responsibility for a shift towards sustainability lies squarely on your shoulders. No longer can you fall for the empty promises of the elite to steward a healthy environment, you must act now in protest to the failed materialistic systems that extract, deplete, frack and burn the very substance of life. Disengage with materialism, and dig deep into the soil for relief from the madness consuming us all.

  4. Abandon conflict.

    The sickness of conflict is an obstacle to all things positive. No longer is it acceptable to violently argue with your friends and family about the intentions of the ruling class, and no longer can you allow your energy to be sucked into battles of opinion or want. Learn to observe, learn to listen, learn to give rather than solely take. Your opinion matters, but, in the great scheme of things no one’s opinion is more valuable than another’s. Try living with this philosophy in your daily life and watch and see just how much easier it is to influence other people.

  5. Practice gratitude daily.

    Gratitude is love in action. Love is the antithesis of fear and casts light upon all of the dark parts of life. Cherish your time with those you know and love, and say thank you daily to whichever God you worship, taking the time to specifically mention the things in your life that that make life richer, fuller, more beautiful, no matter how small. The transformational power of gratitude is unparalleled, and all those who engage in fulfilling acts of appreciation are rewarded with happiness in even the most adverse of situations.

  6. Adopt a spirit of charity and kindness.

    The greatest achievement of an accomplished person is to abandon selfishness and live in service to others. Small things make a big difference in this world and the clearest path to happiness within is to engage in kindness without. Employ this idea any chance you can find and the goodwill you demonstrate to others is guaranteed to return to you ten fold, affecting your own prosperity and well-being.

  7. Be creative.

    The human race is endowed with unbelievable ingenuity and curiosity, which offers us unlimited possibilities in creating worthwhile lives and correcting our collective mistakes. Yet conditioned to operate in patterns and habit, human beings are prone to growing stale in life and moving only within self-restrictive boundaries.

    Learn to break your own mold by trying new things, exploring new ideas and taking risks. Creativity is a tool for the thoughtful and evolution exists as a function of our ability to act upon the fantasies of our imagination. Problems persist when solutions are scarce, so put your whole being into the employment of creative solutions to any problems you may find, big or small. The old ways of thinking, acting, and doing have run out of promise, so, do your part in creating something new.

  8. Explore consciousness and cultivate spirituality.

    There is so much more to our existence than the physical reality we accept as our material universe. Beyond that lies a vast infinity of awareness and surprises that can be accessed by various means, adding a richness and fullness to everyday life, which is incomprehensible to our scientific minds. Explore this and you will discover a limitless source of inspiration, which will allow you to look at the material world with a renewed curiosity and calm passivity. The unexplored realms of your consciousness is where peace resides, and the cultivation of individual spirituality is the gateway to this peace.

    If you are bold enough to pursue the revelations offered by plant medicines, then this may offer you a unique opportunity to break through our collective cultural programming and better understand your role in this crazy world. Spiritual cultivation is the noblest of personal endeavors and the path to total revolution.

    Spirituality and inner peace is your true nature, use it or lose it.

  9. Get prepared.

    The world is sadly on the edge of all out war and for many nations this already far too real. Here in the United States we are facing systemic crises of biblical proportions as the depression deepens and the economy is completely hollowed out by the elite. Our food supply is compromised by corporate insanity and fascistic controls, and frighteningly we are facing the very serious prospect of civil war in America as the government advances its long predicted agenda to disarm the American public.

    Preppers are not crazy, they are prudent, and will be the saving grace of many when the inevitable collapse materializes in a flash. Don’t be foolish enough to mistake this calm before the storm as business as usual. Put together a plan and provisions for at least a basic level of readiness for yourself and your family. This is not just a good idea it is your responsibility.

    It is a sign of good conscience to consider the worst case scenario, plan for it, then move on to focusing on the other areas of your life which bring you happiness. Being prepared materially and mentally is a key part of dispelling fear from your life.

  10. Practice what you preach.

    People love to talk and share information, which is beneficial up to a point, but, the dire nature of our global situation demands that you set an example with this knowledge so that others can learn directly from your actions, not your ideas. Right now, today, this very moment, is the time to be bold and become the type of person who makes positive things happen in this world. Make a note of your interests and passions and get to it as though your hair was on fire. With every breath you take, you are closer to death, whatever that brings, and the value of your waking life is immeasurable, so make it count.

This list is offered as a guidepost so that you may have the most amazing and transformative year of your life. Practicing each of these ten things will help you to develop more love for yourself, your community and the living organism we call planet earth, while helping to cultivate a demeanor of poise and fearlessness in these waking times. It is your calling in 2013 to rise to the challenges we all face and play a part in revitalizing our shared world.

Namaste.

    #1 Dispel fear from your life. First line in #9 “Get Prepared”; The world is sadly teetering on the edge of global war…really? Thats not confusing.

    • admin says:

      LOL! Thanks for tuning in, Anonymous, and have a great evening!

    • Chris says:

      Must be just me but I don’t find it either confusing or even contradictory. It is possible to be prepared and be one step ahead of the game without it being fear based. If you go on a long walk, you might if prepared take a snack and a bottle of water, does not mean you are afraid you will die of starvation or thirst! Preparation DOES NOT=FEAR!!!!!

    • Anonymous says:

      I thought the same thing. And then there is #10–practice what you preach. HAHAHA

    • sally singer says:

      I dont think it is confusing at all. Gain knowledge, then deal with the fear that may arise for what is learned, there are many ways offered to help with this., it will rise and fall at times. Preparation is not neccesarily a fear based action – based on knowledge of possible outcomes, it seems nothing more than sensible to me.

      • Birdog says:

        Well put Sally. If you don’t like the term “prepared” because it has been demonized lately (which is silly) than interchange it with being sensible. I’m currently prepared for a lot of things and I look at it as mitigating risk. I carry jumper cables in my trunk just in case my battery dies but I do not live in fear of it dying. In doing this I’ve actually removed a majority of the fear that comes from a possible car battery dying. The same goes for food, water, heat, security, etc. Not to mention that seeking knowledge/truth is way more interesting than american idol.

  2. Roland says:

    Thank you for this very nice “to do list”.

    I couldn’t agree more – including, of course, #9, since “getting prepared” does not imply at all “living in fear”.

    Anyway, recommended reading is, not surprisingly, The Course in Miracles – see http://www.acim.org

    All best,
    Roland

    • admin says:

      I understand what you are saying about # 9, but the point of being prepared is so that you don’t have to fear the big things going on in the world. Basic preparations are essential in my mind to being free from fear. Being honest about the crises we face is essential to being free from fear. I know a number of people will not get this, but just as spiritual preparation can free you from the fear of death, physical preparation can free you from the fear of bad economies, strife, famine and so on. There is a connection between the two that must be recognized by conscious people.

      Thanks for the comment and have a great day.

    Let us get clear about fear… Fear is a natural part of our emotional body… the problem around this is that we for the most part have learned and accepted that fear is our enemy… and have never taken the time to realize that fear can also be an ally… a powerful component that lets one know through “intuition” not to go into a building, not to go to a meeting, to take another route to where ever…. Fear is not wrong… we have been taught to experience fear from a mental or head oriented perspective… Fear felt from the heart can save your life. I highly recommend the following books….The Heart Code by Paul Pearsall PhD, Secret Teachings of Plants by Stephen H. Buhner, Living in the Heart by Drunvalo Melchizedek, Matrix Energetics (and) The Physics of Miracles by Dr Richard Barlett.
    We have an emotional body… and our emotions have been highjacked by our society at large and certainly our education… We have forgotten how to feel and instead rely etirely on how and what we think. Getting out of our heads and into our hearts will change everything.
    The thing about consciousness is the recognition that according to physicists there is nothing outside of us as individuals…. AND that what we are experiencing is all about reflection on the scale of mass consciousness or better said mass unconsciousness.
    Everything we experience is a result of how we filter information… for there is nothing except light and information…. what anyone does in any situation is reliant upon what that individual believes about what he or she is witnessing. Dr Bohm stated that we live in an observer universe… Dr Wheeler then stated that we live in a participating universe… that more than observing events we are participating in events…. and that this participation is based on what we believe…. If a person still believes that we live in a two party system that works and represents us and he or she participates in that… then in some form or fashion that is true for them. And the opposite is also just as true. The impending state of affairs we are all talking about can be changed simply by having more people become conscious about what is really happening. When enough people of the masses wake up the reflection has to change. If you want to make a change in the world take a look at the man (or woman) in the mirror.
    By being the change we want to see, and modeling that for others the change will happen… We do not need another violent revolution… revolutions happen and then happen and then happen… going around and around like a wheel. Let’s step off the wheel into an awakened state of personal sovereignty. We do not need government… government needs us. We do need to wake up to all of this…as George Carlin so deftly put it the American dream can only happen when one is asleep… and remember the Wizard of Oz… “pay no attention to the man behind the curtain”.
    Be prepared, be awake, and be invisible in plain sight… by changing your frequency… be on that “radio station” frequency that ‘they’ are not paying any attention to. Be so boring to “them” that they ignore you.
    Have a different kind of day.

    • Linda says:

      Brilliant!! thank you. Reminder to reread Paul Pearsall’s book on my shelf. I love Dylan’s suggestion to ditch fear – and wish to god I could! I’ve just come from the hospital, where my son was admitted this morning with a leg infection and is on iv antibiotics. His leg looked terrible…..I feel myself sinking into a black hole. I think it’s called fear. THIS is my biggest fear (and the one I wish I could jettison) – not my own death (so much, though I agree with Woodie Allen, I just don’t want to be there when it happens) – but rather, losing my children. There is so much fear around their well-being, the possibility of them passing before I do. This is obviously not a helpful fear (is it?) and one I am sure I could happily live without. Do you have any thoughts on the nature of this particular fear?

      • Satori says:

        A 100 years ago people had more children than they do now because they had an expectation that some of them would die of natural causes. Today people generally have less children (and there are many reasons for this) but now it’s easier for the people I call The Controllers to prey on a parent’s fear of losing their few children to all the fearful stuff out there in the mean world. I am 60 and have no children, so it’s easier for me to stand back and see how this fear is being manufactured deliberately without succumbing to it myself.

        So I’m suggesting that while your fear is logical in a controllable way, it is also intentionally intensified by media, the medical system, the school system and all the “systems” that attempt to infect us with the tyranny of fear. Being a parent you are an easy target. Perhaps you can step away for a moment from that parent role and see fear from the perspective of it being more or less implanted in your psyche by outside forces. If you can do that, then you can control it better. Namaste

        • Linda says:

          I agree Satori, that fear is deliberately manufactured. I have a sense that alot of ‘my stuff’ around this particular fear comes from past life material. Without going too deeply there, I see my challenge, my task here, is to clear that emotional pattern. When we have an ‘unnaturally charged’ response to a situation, that is the clue we are looking at a karmic situation. A friend of my youngest son stepped onto the road and was run over in June, 2011 – just 20 years old. I cried non-stop for weeks on end! Now, when I drive past the intersection where he was killed, tears well up, my heart gripped by an unfathomable pain….I know the roots of my feelings must go further than this life. Tho’ it’s true, I am an overly emotional and sensitive Piscean. You are fortunate in many ways not to have children. Not every lifetime is intended to be about the sacrifice and the joys, of parenthood. It’s a crazy world and an even crazier life…

        • Scott says:

          A good list to go by and I especially liked 9&10 was surprised to see that on here. About fear, and to respond to Satori’s post, I am amazed at how people shelter their kids these days. I was born in the mid 1970’s and grew up an only child in a single parent home. I had total freedom as a kid. My grandparents lived round the block, so I would walk thru their yards at age 6-10, walked to school, rode my bike, played with neighbor kids outside. I went into neighbor’s homes without telling my mom, etc. Point is, there are many parents who control their kid’s lives. They take them to school when they could walk or ride a bike, won’t even let them play outside with neighbor kids. It’s not right. I know these parents, who say the world isn’t safe these days like when we grew up. Did you see the movie changeling?
          Ted Bundy was a baby boomer. We have always had predators and bad things happen. I had an old creepy guy approach me in front of my mom in a dept store as a kid. My instincts lead me to flee that guy. Just let kids play outside with others is my point. Also about the guns, isn’t it funny that our nation likes to arm one side in foreign civil wars, and then seeks to disarm America? Don’t fall for it or obey unconstitutional laws. We have nothing to fear, but fear itself.

      • Victor Gagnon says:

        What you resist will persist! I believe that Eckhart Tolle once said that if you worry about something that might happen then you are lying to yourself.
        I have two children and two grandchildren and yes fear does enter into my thoughts but I have learned long ago that I have no power over my children or my grand children so I choose to hold the thought that they will always be well and healthy. With these thoughts I have nothing to loose. The mind comes into play once again. All of our fears are rooted in death and that is because we really don’t know who or what we are.

        • Linda says:

          Yes Victor, this is EXACTLY what I continually tell myself. Their fate is their fate. Their path is their path – and it has nothing to do with me. A psychic channel once told me, with regard to my relationship with my eldest son, that he had saved my life in the past, and now I felt I had to save him. But I needed to know, I can SERVE but I cannot SAVE… Thanks for your words.

    • sistertongue says:

      Thank you, keldoone. Well said.

      I cannot recommend highly enough a book by a man named Gavin De Bekker called, “The Gift of Fear.” I am a former psychotherapist and, of all the texts, articles, blah blah, I ever read, this book was more useful than any other. A very easy read and, in it, he demonstrates, in theory and practice, how our gut instincts, of which FEAR is a very important one, serve to save and direct our very lives toward health and well being. Buy it. Read it. Use it.

      thanks keldoone.

  4. Jack Schick says:

    So, Thank you for the positive outlook.
    As a genuine manager and commander, I must move
    quickly beyond general staements and wishful thinkings
    to address immediate needs.
    Like Viktor Kulvinskas’ vision from “Survival into the 21st Century”,
    where he says to fast yourself down to a “scarecrow” and allow the
    bad guys to just take whatever they want from your house,
    the wishful picture of fantasyland prevails.
    Mr. Dylan,
    Fukushima trumps all visions for any future.
    Your course in miracles, Various Gurus, techniques of transcendence,
    are all bathed in this radioactive fallout. Fukushima is unabated in its
    output of, conservatively, one hundred Hiroshima-bombs per HOUR
    into the atmosphere and Pacific Ocean.
    You understand, after reading up a bit, that Civil Defense models
    and “Duck’n’Cover” training only anticipated a weapons-exchange,
    followed by a ceasefire or Mutually Assured Destruction.
    Now, today, specifically upon You, Dylan, today,
    the Plutonium239 particles, Cesium 134-and-137, Strontium 90, and
    many other radionuclides, are in your lungs, in your food and water,
    and everybody else’s lungs, food and water.
    This event, this abomination, is foretold, if one dares to
    utilize one’s Bible, and if one dares to actually SEEK Knowledge.
    The word “Chernobyl” equals the prophetic word “Wormwood”,
    Jeremiah 9, please read it carefully.
    “Death came in our windows”….the waters made “BITTER”, yup.
    They shall Know that I Am the Lord.
    That is where IT is AT, Mr. Dylan: attachment to this Earth is Death.
    Mr. Ramaswami Kumar has mentioned that the Hindu cosmology
    matter-of-factly shrugs it off as just one more Age of Brahma,
    approximately 4.6 Billion-year cycle of rebirth for the entire matter
    of the planet.
    So Dylan, “FEAR” of the Lord is the Beginning of Wisdom.
    A better translation is The APPRECIATION of the Lord.
    HalleluYah! Thank You Jesus!
    If you want to know about Fukushima reality: enenews dot com.
    Your Trusted TV News is totally LYING about the deadly radiation
    spread constantly from Japan. All your food supplies are compromised.
    Not FEAR, Mr. Dylan, but Risk Management.
    Not Fear, but immediate need for Fallout Protection training for mothers.
    Not Fear, but New Knowledge, with stress-levels high, about FOOD protection.
    Please upgrade your specific-task focus orientation to a surviving Male-tribal
    mode. The feminists have destroyed the Male authority. That’s why Lies prevail
    on this evil Earth.

    • Afshin Nejat says:

      This evil world will be utterly destroyed, along with all Yahweh/Allah/”Jesus” worshipers. Jesus has nothing to do with “Jehovah/Yahweh” and in now way wanted or deserves worship.

      Idolaters will suffer for their folly.

  5. While Dylan Charles urges the cultivation of many good virtues and characteristics in ourselves, I am somewhat taken aback in the part about how we must “Abandon Conflict”. No matter how spiritually we might become, conflict is unavoidable in the real world, although we can avoid a lot of useless arguing. I am dismayed Charles seems to be advocating a totally passive, submissive stance in the face of evil, and denying that there is any correct or righteous opinion by which any might find guidance. If this is so, why write the article? Is God not good? God is creative and life-affirming, life-fulfilling. Evil is destructive, life-denying, life-degrading. Are these things unworthy of Charles’ expressions of opinion?

  6. Abu Maryam says:

    5. Peace be upon you all. There is only one creator, the creator of everything in existence, Allah in Arabic or God in English. In reality we all worship this supreme creator, not different god’s. Allah created everything in existence, even the prophets from Adam, Noah, Jesus, Moses an Muhammed peace be upon them all, the answers are in the Holy Qu’ran people.

  7. rgrtghrt says:

    still trying to lose the fear, anxiety disorder. God, things go so fast

  8. hp says:

    If a person could dispel fear from his/her life, the other 9 would already either be achieved or simply matter of fact.

    Discounting psychotics and demons in general, of course.

  9. Linda says:

    Dylan THANK YOU … I love your suggestions – every one makes sense to me. It is the first I have the most trouble with. It sounds so simple – to dispel fear…..but how HARD it is!! As a mother of four, I live in constant fear of something ‘terrible’ happening to my kids. As a conscious, empathetic, sensitive being – this is looking like being a lifelong companion. Perhaps it is about re-framing it. Or, ACCEPTING it. Is that enough do you think? Accept that ‘this is me’ – it’s okay to feel what I am feeling. I guess as long as we are not immobilized by fear. Courage. THIS is the antidote to fear. I love that the word comes from coeur – French for Heart. We come from the heart when we did deep and engage our capacity for courage. So then, the fear we feel, when we worry about our kids, or our health or any of the numerous things we have to feel fearful about – must be met with courage. In this way, we USE fear – as a tool to connect us with the heart – and our evolutionary intention to grow and heal…

  10. Afshin Nejat says:

    “Reconnect with this great earth”? Nonsense. There is nothing great about it. It needs to be completely scrapped, and it will be. Anyone who “reconnects” to this foul heap of evil hyle will be scrapped with it. Better follow the advice of wiser men than you who said that “God’s Kingdom is no part of this world” and “Detach from the illusion of maya” (maya is the illusion of reality bred by attachments to physical incarnations, namely on this earth), and that evil matter will be destroyed along with the evil mind “angra mainyu” which has invented it. This year is the year of getting ready for the end of the entire illusion, not a redesign or redecoration of it’s window dressings.

  11. paul says:

    I don’t know about killing Fear (i don’t want to kill anything) but i have been practicing this “Mental Trick”?
    It’s called Mental Alchemy, and it’s Alchemy(The philosophers Stone) which has led to modern day Chemistry, that has kept this knowledge if unwittingly alive? and it Is as simple as this!
    Since we live within a Duality, every opposite may be reconciled Mentally, after all where does fear end and courage begin, sanity and insanity, every opposite being two sides of the same coin.
    The “Trick”? Is to not Focus on the Negative Pole, but its Positive opposite. Some of you already know this and for the rest of you, why? not give it a go.
    If i may be so Bold.

  12. Ricky says:

    The truth is we are are immortal, infinite, interdimensional beings of conciousness which is a lot to swallow for many people and requires serious contemplation for the penny to drop..when you do get it however everything including fear becomes an illusion..

    EXCELLENT POST! Bravo!

    Here are some SOLUTIONS (TO PUT INTO ACTION!)

    Removing your money out of any TBTF Bank is ONE thing that you can do. However, there are many, many other things that we can all do, too!

    Here are just a few:

    1) BOYCOTT – learn this concept well, and EMPLOY IT – against those enslaving (or poisoning) you!
    http://www.cfr.org/about/corporate/roster.html
    http://www.organicconsumers.org/articles/article_26620.cfm
    2) THINK for yourself. TURN OFF the IDIOT-BOX (TV) OR THROW IT AWAY! READ! USE YOUR BRAIN MUSCLE!
    3) QUESTION all ‘authority’ (Big Business/Government, Big Religion, Big Media, etc.)
    4) Get out, and/or stay out, of DEBT!
    5) USE CASH AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. Avoid using credit, debit, and customer loyalty cards, that track your every purchase, and compromise your privacy.
    6) Bank at a local credit union! Or, at a small, unaffiliated local bank.
    7) VOTE WITH YOUR DOLLARS! (What do you support, with your time, attention, energy, and money?)(Buy true ORGANIC, & MADE IN USA! Let’s put AMERICANS back to work!)
    8) Contact your Representatives on CRITICAL issues: such as “END THE FED!”
    9) Re-read the 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. It isn’t about hunting. It’s about government tyranny, and protecting yourself from it!
    10)Buy (products) Made in U.S.A.
    11)Invest in precious metals, primarily SILVER (and gold) bullion, and anything of necessity that can be used as BARTER.
    http://libertycpm.com/silver/

    You had me until your only option given to explore consciousness was “plant medicines”. Come on now. Isn’t the ultimate goal to find and be able to access all your levels of consciousness through the purist most natural meditative ways. I’m not saying it can’t give you a kick start but it’s kind of a cheap short cut and I don’t think as conscious people we should encourage others to get “enlightened” through short cuts. You just cheat yourself.
