 “Sunsets are beautiful too, not just sunrises.”

 

 *****

The theme for April 2014 is Intensity

“There will be battles this month, the battle between your essence and your personality, and the battle between your attachment to your suffering and your desire and intention to move beyond the petty drama in your life. What will win is dependent on which voice you are listening to and where you are putting your energy.
“This is a great month to revisit your energy leaks, deal once and for all with your fears, and step into more personal power than you have ever experienced before.
“The INTENSITY of the times is like turning the dimmer switch up from 100 watts to 1000 watts of light. It is being able to absorb more sunlight and a higher frequency of energy than before. This intensity can be exhilarating and incredibly inspiring, or it can crash down on top of you like a brick wall, burying you in your own denial, fear and resistance.
“Most of you know exactly what you need to do and what you need to change. You just have not taken the time to DO IT. Whatever situation you are in will be intensified this month. The positive aspect of this is that it will force you to take action where you need to because there will be no alternative.

It Looks Bleak. Big Deal, It Looks Bleak.

Joanna Macy: It’s happening. It’s combined with so much else that promises wholesale collapse. How do we begin to deal with the plastic in the ocean that covers areas the size of countries? What are cell phones and microwaves doing to our biological rhythms?  What exactly is in our food? How do we address genetic modification of crops?  We are so hooked on all of this, on every level. How do we begin to contain it?

The most immediate level of crisis concerns the Earth’s carrying capacity. Many civilizations prior to ours, starting with Mesopotamia, could no longer support themselves because they exhausted their natural resources. Carrying capacity is the level most people talk about. It’s a defining aspect of the climate crisis. How will we grow the food we need given huge variations and extremities of weather? How will we handle the natural disasters and famines that will result from a chaotic climate?

The second and deeper level is that consequences will extend far beyond the collapse of this civilization. We are creating a lack of possibility for future generations and civilizations, because we are using up mineral and petroleum resources without a thought for them. When this civilization collapses, the future will have largely Stone Age possibilities.

The third level of crisis is the enormous increase in the rate of extinctions—shredding the fabric of life, creating a loss of biodiversity so extreme that we can glimpse the doom of complex life forms. It takes highly differentiated and integrated and diverse systems to produce life forms complex enough for consciousness.

The fourth level of crisis would be the destruction of everything more complex than anaeorobic life forms, because of the loss of our oxygen production in the oceans and on land. At any rate, I take all of these crises seriously and don’t argue with them. At the same time, I spend my life and breath to open our minds, and to change our heart-minds.

EB: From where do you derive the psychic resources to bear witness to all this, while keeping in touch with joy?

JM: There’s a lot of joy in it. I find myself very buoyed by the work I do. I call it the work that re-connects. It involves speaking the truth about what we are facing. I think it’s very hard for people to do that alone, so this work thrives and requires groups.

It needs to be done in groups so we can hear it from each other. Then you realize that it gives a lie to the isolation we have been conditioned to experience in recent centuries, and especially by this hyper-individualist consumer society. People can graduate from their sense of isolation, into a realization of their inter-existence with all.

Yes, it looks bleak. But you are still alive now. You are alive with all the others, in this present moment. And because the truth is speaking in the work, it unlocks the heart. And there’s such a feeling and experience of adventure. It’s like a trumpet call to a great adventure. In all great adventures there comes a time when the little band of heroes feels totally outnumbered and bleak, like Frodo in Lord of the Rings or Pilgrim in Pilgrim’s Progress. You learn to say “It looks bleak. Big deal, it looks bleak.”

Our little minds think it must be over, but the very fact that we are seeing it is enlivening. And we know we can’t possibly see the whole thing, because we are just one part of a vast interdependent whole–one cell in a larger body. So we don’t take our own perceptions as the ultimate. My world view has been so interwoven between the Buddhist teachings and living systems theory. They inform each other so powerfully.

“Beings are numberless, I vow to liberate them all”. This may be the last gasp of life on Earth, and what a great last gasp, if we realize we have fallen in love with each other. If you are really in the moment of experiencing our reality, you don’t say “Oh I won’t experience this because it’s not going to last forever!”  You’ve got this moment. It’s true for now. We can have a reasoned concern about what is down the track, without necessarily getting hooked on something having to endure.

EB: Even in Buddhism, where impermanence is a matter of course, there are no obvious concepts to deal with super-impermanence, in the sense that humans are now bringing an end to the Cenozoic era. In the best case, there may be an Ecozoic era to follow it. Continuing on our “business-as-usual” trajectory will acidify the oceans and trigger runaway global heating, epic mass extinction and a completely new cycle of geological time. A few climate scientists consider we may have already entered into runaway climate change.

JM: I suspect that they are right.  Logically they are right: we don’t have a snowball’s chance in hell

2014 Aries Ingress Horoscope: Global Revolution Going “Full Throttle”

As the Grand Cardinal Cross of April, May and June 2014 take place, we shall see a range of violence, accidents and geopolitical crises that are the hallmark of the cardinal planetary configurations of the Grand Cardinal Cross.

I urge caution in extended travel this spring through to early summer, in fact, it would be wise of those reading this who have any plans to travel, to cancel their their trips due to the adverse world transits, as accidents and violence in crowded places are presaged.

The world transits also show a series of strong weather-related events, from torrential downpours, hail, lightning and tornadoes. The spring of 2014 will be very active, so I caution everyone to be extra careful during the months of April, May and June.

Mass events with large crowds will be common. It is wise to avoid large gatherings as the world transits are quite hostile as I have been warning for years about spring 2014. In this edition of Global Astrology, as in previous editions, I warn all concerned not to go about playing with fire – as they may later discover that it begins plenty of other fires where all can get burned.

What Happens When We Die?

Dr. Raymond Moody only recently coined the term “Near-Death Experience” in the 1970s, but the NDE phenomenon has a long-standing history with documented examples going back thousands of years.
Like OBEs, NDEs appear to be a universal phenomenon. They are described at length in both the eighth-century Tibetan Book of the Dead and the 2,500 year-old Egyptian Book of the Dead. In Book X of The Republic Plato gives a detailed account of a Greek soldier named Er, who came alive just seconds before his funeral pyre was to be lit and said that he had left his body and went through a ‘passageway’ to the land of the dead. The venerable Bede gives a similar account in his eighth-century work A History of the English Church and People, and, in fact, in her recent book Otherworld Journeys Carol Zaleski, a lecturer on the study of religion at Harvard, points out that medieval literature is filled with accounts of NDEs.” -Michael Talbot, “The Holographic Universe” (240)
In Book X of The Republic, Plato recounted the story of a Greek soldier named Er who died on the battlefield and came back to life almost ten days later just as his body was about to be incinerated. Er awoke with a start and began describing what he had seen on the other side. He said his soul left his physical body and joined with a group of other spirits who led him upwards through a “passage way” (tunnel?) to the afterlife. There the other souls were taken by divine light beings and shown detailed life reviews. Er himself was shown many sights, but not his life review, and was ultimately sent back and told to inform others on Earth about what he experienced in the afterlife realm. Amazingly this two and a half thousand year old story sounds exactly like modern NDE accounts.
According to Plato, the soul comes into the physical body from a higher and more divine realm of being., For him it is birth which is the sleeping and the forgetting, since the soul, in being born into the body, goes from a state of great awareness to a much less conscious one and in the meantime forgets the truths it knew while in its previous out-of-body state. Death, by implication, is an awakening and remembering. Plato remarks that the soul that has been separated from the body upon death can think and reason even more clearly than before, and that it can recognize things in their true nature far more readily. Furthermore, soon after death it faces a ‘judgment’ in which a divine being displays before the soul all the things – both good and bad – which it has done in its life and makes the soul face them.” –Dr. Raymond Moody, “Life After Life” (46)

Scientists Assure Us That The Recent Earthquakes On The Ring Of Fire Are Not Related

Michael Snyder
Activist PostWe just had a tsunami-triggering 8.2 earthquake off of Chile’s north coast, a 5.8 earthquake off the coast of Panama, a 5.1 earthquake in southern California, and a dormant volcano in Peru has awakened for the first time in 40 years, but scientists assure us that none of these events are related and that we don’t have anything to be concerned about. Even though all of these events took place on the Ring of Fire, which is the most seismically-active area of the entire planet, the “experts” promise us that “the odds are overwhelming” that they are not related to one another. So do you believe them?A few days ago, I wrote an article entitled “12 Signs That Something Big Is Happening To The Earth’s Crust Under North And South America“. This was before the earthquakes that struck off the coasts of Chile and Panama. It appeared to me, as a “non-expert”, that seismic activity was really starting to heat up in North and South America – especially along the Ring of Fire. But it turns out that I and everyone else that was concerned about all of these earthquakes was flat wrong. According to the experts, it is just a giant coincidence that earthquakes are popping off like firecrackers all along the west coasts of North and South America.

Vaccinations From The Sky Just Ahead???

(If you believe that the global wealthy-elite would not do this. Think Again!  They are already using Australia as a testing ground against its own people.)

Sure you can avoid vaccines by saying no to your doctor while withstanding his browbeating and derogatory comments, by finding employment with a company that does not make them a condition of employment, by not putting your children in daycare or by home schooling them … BUT YOU DO HAVE TO BREATH … GOTCHA … !!!

TLB has propagated a lot of information heralding the use of GMO foods  as an alternative delivery system for vaccines, but also using atmospheric spraying (chemtrails) to bypass the rising awareness and push-back of people like you and I, is a subject we do not discuss enough, and it is a reality. You WILL be subjected to the mechanism of vaccines whether you like it or not!

“Control the Oil, Control a Nation. Control the Food Supply, Control the People”  Dr. Henry Kissinger 1978

Geoengineering Historic Drought in California

Looking at the satellite image from NOAA each day, one can see the obvious blockage of rain bearing clouds from entering the west coast.  The entire coast has had reduced rainfall, but California seems to be the main target for an engineered drought.  California produces more organic produce than any other state in the country, per recent USDA statistics.  Biotech companies, like Monsanto, who wish to control the world’s food supply, are also invested in climate research and climate engineering.  Monsanto purchased the weather data company, The Climate Corporation a few months ago, further implicating the agribusiness giant in this weather war.  By controlling the rainfall, they can gain a further stranglehold on the commodities market.  By polluting the soil with aluminum and changing its pH, they can force GMO seeds patented to withstand drought and acidic soils onto farmers who can no longer grow natural foods.  Africa has been a victim of these tactics for decades and it looks like California is next.  It is no coincidence that Bill Gates is the world’s biggest shareholder in Monsanto stock, with 500,000 shares, and is also a major funder and proponent of geoengineering.

To the uninitiated, geoengineering is the dispersal of fine particulate matter into the atmosphere through the use of aircraft to affect the weather and climate.  The substances used are known pollutants, primarily the heavy metals aluminum, barium, and strontium, and they are confirmed to have a negative impact on human health as well as animal and plant life.  Heavy metals have been linked to autism, Alzheimer’s disease, and asthma, to name a few of the many health hazards they pose.   It has been proven that these programs are already in place in the form of aerosol spraying, or chemtrails, that goes on daily throughout the US and the world as well as the deployment of explosive canisters of massive amounts of geoengineering particulates over less populated areas and the Pacific Ocean.  The proof is in the form of air samples, some of which you can review at Carnicom.com and rain samples which show ever-increasing amounts of aluminum, barium, and strontium in rainfall.

California is in an unprecedented drought, with the lowest rainfall since recording began in 1894.  Just like climate change in general, it is very difficult to find accurate information on the causes of this drought and its resulting impact on the state of California, both agriculturally and in terms of increased wildfires and pollution.  In a recent National Geographic article on the drought, complete with photos of geoengineered clouds over the parched earth, the scientists interviewed claimed that these conditions are completely normal for California and that man-made intervention has nothing to do with the drought at all.  Regarding the pollution caused by lack of rainfall and almost daily chemtrail spraying in LA, a March 4 article in the Los Angeles Times actually sited wood burning stoves as the cause of increased air pollution in the city.  This article was also accompanied by a photograph showing a sky heavy with chemtrail aerosols.  Considering that Los Angeles temperatures in the weeks preceding this article were unseasonably warm, in the high 70s and 80s, it is doubtful that anyone was burning any wood or heating their homes at all.  Furthermore, Los Angeles favors natural gas heating over any other form, and most fireplaces in rental units across the city were decommissioned long ago.

What almost everyone is ignoring on this drought issue is that for the duration of the rainy season, massive quantities of chemtrails and chembombs have been dispersed over the Pacific Ocean and over the state of California.  Why wouldn’t science consider this when determining the cause of the drought?  According to Dr. Clifford Carnicom of the Carnicom Institute, when too many condensation nuclei are introduced into the atmosphere, in this case in the form of fine metal particulates, the moisture has too many places to collect and proper rain clouds cannot form.  He and Dane Wigington of Geoengineeringwatch.org have also discussed how when introducing these metals into the sky, the atmosphere is transformed into a conductive plasma state, easily manipulated by ionosphere heaters, such as HAARP.  There are more than two dozen of these facilities on earth, as well as sea based facilities.  The radio waves emitted by HAARP can be used to change the jet stream, as we have seen over this past winter with extreme storms in the east and extreme drought in the west.

Got Food??

Venezuela Enforces Fingerprint Registry to Buy Groceries: What to do Before Rationing Starts in The U.S.

 What if you were forced to “register” in order to buy groceries? And what if, through that registration, the food you bought could be tracked and quantities could be limited?

That’s exactly the plan in Venezuela right now. The AP reports that in an effort to crack down on “hoarding” that ID cards will be issued to families. These will have to be presented before foodstuffs can be purchased.

President Nicolas Maduro’s administration says the cards to track families’ purchases will foil people who stock up on groceries at subsidized prices and then illegally resell them for several times the amount…

Registration began Tuesday at more than 100 government-run supermarkets across the country. Working-class shoppers who sometimes endure hours-long lines at government-run stores to buy groceries at steeply reduced prices are welcoming the plan.

“The rich people have things all hoarded away, and they pull the strings,” said Juan Rodriguez, who waited two hours to enter the government-run Abastos Bicentenario supermarket near downtown Caracas on Monday, and then waited another three hours to check out.

Dismayed campaign finance advocates say that the Supreme Court’s controversial McCutcheon vs. FEC decision released Wednesday morning threatens to unleash a new avalanche of money into a political system already flush with contributions from moneyed interests.

But exactly who will be empowered to write more checks this election season as a result of the McCutcheon decision? Perhaps to no one’s surprise, researchers and advocates say the elite class of donors who are most likely to exceed the stricken limits tends to skew white, male, affiliated with business interests and, of course, ultra-wealthy.

Before the McCutcheon decision, federal law not only put restrictions on how much individual donors could contribute to any single candidate and party committee, but capped their total contributions to all federal candidates and all party committees in a two-year period. For the 2014 election cycle, those limits were set at a total of $48,600 and $74,600 for candidates and party committees, respectively.

The McCutcheon decision brings an end to those restrictions. Now an individual donor could contribute up to $3.5 million if they maxed out their contributions.

According to an analysis by good governance group Public Campaign last October, a small group of 1,219 donors came close to surpassing the aggregate limits in place in the 2012 election cycle, contributing at least $105,300 to candidates, party committees, and PACs.

These superdonors — those who are now freed to open their wallets even more to as many candidates, party committees and political action committees they deem worthy — include conservative billionaires David and Charles Koch, director Steven Spielberg and banking titan Charles Schwab.

U.S. Supreme Court Judges ALL BAR Members; BAR stands for the British Accredited Registry ~ A British Corporation!!! All Judges must be BAR members to sit on the Supreme Court.

British Accredited Registry (BAR)?

During the middle 1600’s, the Crown of England established a formal registry in London where barristers were ordered by the Crown to be accredited. The establishment of this first International Bar Association allowed barrister-lawyers from all nations to be formally recognized and accredited by the only recognized accreditation society. From this, the acronym BAR was established denoting (informally) the British Accredited Registry, whose members became a powerful and integral force within the International Bar Association (IBA). Although this has been denied repeatedly as to its existence, the acronym BAR stood for the British barrister-lawyers who were members of the larger IBA.

When America was still a chartered group of British colonies under patent – established in what was formally named the British Crown territory of New England – the first British Accredited Registry (BAR) was established in Boston during 1761 to attempt to allow only accredited barrister-lawyers access to the British courts of New England. This was the first attempt to control who could represent defendants in the court at or within the bar in America.

Today, each corporate STATE in America has it’s own BAR Association, i.e. The Florida Bar or the California Bar, that licenses government officer attorneys, NOT lawyers. In reality, the U.S. courts only allow their officer attorneys to freely enter within the bar while prohibiting those learned of the law – lawyers – to do so. They prevent advocates, lawyers, counselors, barristers and solicitors from entering through the outer bar. Only licensed BAR Attorneys are permitted to freely enter within the bar separating the people from the bench because all BAR Attorneys are officers of the court itself. Does that tell you anything?

Here’s where the whole word game gets really tricky. In each State, every licensed BAR Attorney calls himself an Attorney at Law. Look at the definitions above and see for yourself that an Attorney at Law is nothing more than an attorney – one who transfers allegiance and property to the ruling land owner.

Another name game they use is “of counsel,” which means absolutely nothing more than an offer of advice. Surely, the mechanic down the street can do that! Advice is one thing; lawful representation is another.

A BAR licensed Attorney is not an advocate, so how can he do anything other than what his real purpose is? He can’t plead on your behalf because that would be a conflict of interest. He can’t represent the crown (ruling government) as an official officer at the same time he is allegedly representing a defendant. His sworn duty as a BAR Attorney is to transfer your ownership, rights, titles, and allegiance to the land owner. When you hire a BAR Attorney to represent you in their courts, you have hired an officer of that court whose sole purpose and occupation is to transfer what you have to the creator and authority of that court. A more appropriate phrase would be legal plunder.

The official duties of an Esquire

Let’s not forget that all U.S. BAR Attorneys have entitled themselves, as a direct result of their official BAR license and oaths, with the British title of “esquire.” This word is a derivative of the British word “squire.”

SQUIRE, n. [a popular contraction of esquire] 1. In Great Britain, the title of a gentleman next in rank to a knight. 2. In Great Britain, an attendant on a noble warrior. 3. An attendant at court. 4. In the United States, the title of magistrates and lawyers. In New-England, it is particularly given to justices of the peace and judges. – Webster’s 1828 Dictionary.

ESQUIRE n. Earlier as squire n.1 lme. [Origin French. esquier (mod. écuyer) f. Latin scutarius shield – bearer, f. scutum shield: see – ary 1.] 1. Orig. (now Hist.), a young nobleman who, in training for knighthood, acted as shield-bearer and attendant to a knight. Later, a man belonging to the higher order of English gentry, ranking next below a knight. lme. b Hist. Any of various officers in the service of a king or nobleman. c A landed proprietor, a country squire. arch. – Oxford English Dictionary 1999.

During the English feudal laws of land ownership and tenancy, a squire – esquire – was established as the land proprietor charged with the duty of carrying out, among various other duties, the act of attornment [see definition above] for the land owner and nobleman he served. Could this be any simpler for the average American to understand? If our current U.S. BAR Attorneys were just lawyers, solicitors, barristers, advocates or counselors, then they would call themselves the same. They have named themselves just exactly what they are, yet we blindly cannot see the writing on the wall.

The BAR Attorneys have not hidden this from anyone. That’s why they deliberately call themselves “Esquires” and “Attorneys at law.” It is the American people who have hidden their own heads in the sand.

Threatened Pandemics and Laboratory Escapes: Self-Fulfilling Prophecies

Bulletin of Atomic Scientists:

The public health danger from the escape, from laboratories, of viruses capable of causing pandemics has become the subject of considerable, well-merited discussion, spurred by “gain of function” experiments. The ostensible goal of these experiments— in which researchers manipulate already-dangerous pathogens to create or increase communicability among humans—is to develop tools to monitor the natural emergence of pandemic strains. Opponents, however, warn that the risk of laboratory escape of these high-consequence pathogens far outweighs any potential advance. These arguments appear in a variety of recent research papers, including Rethinking Biosafety in Research on Potential Pandemic Pathogens; The Human Fatality and Economic Burden of a Man-made Influenza Pandemic: A Risk Assessment; Containing the Accidental Laboratory Escape of Potential Pandemic Influenza Viruses; and Response to Letter by the European Society for Virology on “Gain-of-Function” Influenza Research.

The risk of a manmade pandemic sparked by a laboratory escape is not hypothetical: One occurred in 1977, and it occurred because of concern that a natural pandemic was imminent. Many other laboratory escapes of high-consequence pathogens have occurred, resulting in transmission beyond laboratory personnel. Ironically, these laboratories were working with pathogens to prevent the very outbreaks they ultimately caused. For that reason, the tragic consequences have been called “self-fulfilling prophecies.”

Leaders of Teaching Hospitals Have Close Ties to Drug Companies

Pharmaceutical company payments to doctors extend far beyond rank-and-file clinicians — and deep into the leadership of America’s teaching hospitals, according to a study published today in the Journal of the American Medical Association.A team of researchers at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center examined the boards of the 50 largest drug companies by global sales (excluding three companies that were not publicly traded). The researchers found that 40 percent — 19 companies — had at least one board member who also held a leadership role at an academic medical center. Sixteen of the 17 companies based in the United States had at least one. Several had more than one.

All told, the research team found that 41 of the companies’ 2012 board members held leadership positions at academic medical centers. Six of the 41 were pharmaceutical company executives who served on hospital boards of directors or held other leadership posts.

Excluding the industry executives, the academics earned an average of nearly $313,000 that year for their board service.

Are Fed Up States Finally Dumping Common Core?


Out of 45 states that implemented the hideous Common Core State Standards, Indiana Governor Mike Pence signed a bill last week that officially made his state the first to withdraw:

“I believe our students are best served when decisions about education are made at the state and local level,” said Pence in a release about Senate Bill 91.

“By signing this legislation, Indiana has taken an important step forward in developing academic standards that are written by Hoosiers, for Hoosiers, and are uncommonly high, and I commend members of the General Assembly for their support,” he said.

Yesterday, Oklahoma took the first step in potentially following suit, as the state’s Senate passed a bill to repeal Common Core on similar grounds, citing that education standards should be set at the local and state levels instead of being set outside of democratic process by Bill Gates’ money.

Pennsylvania’s House also passed a bill to drop Common Core, and three other states, including Florida, Michigan and Ohio, have also introduced bills to get rid of it.

As New York became the first state to administer statewide Common Core initiative testing this week, some families practiced their own brand of civil disobedience by opting out. Three Brooklyn schools saw as many as 70% of their students refuse to take the state-mandated tests.

Walmart Admits: ‘Our Profits’ Depend on ‘Their Poverty’

Critics cite irony of annual report filing: ‘This is a company that everywhere it goes it creates poverty’

by Lauren McCauley

Although a notorious recipient of “corporate welfare,” Walmart has now admitted that their massive profits also depend on the funding of food stamps and other public assistance programs.

In their annual report, filed with the Security and Exchange Commission last week, the retail giant lists factors that could potentially harm future profitability. Listed among items such as “economic conditions” and “consumer confidence,” the company writes that changes in taxpayer-funded public assistance programs are also a major threat to their bottom line.

The company writes:

Our business operations are subject to numerous risks, factors and uncertainties, domestically and internationally, which are outside our control … These factors include … changes in the amount of payments made under the Supplement[al] Nutrition Assistance Plan and other public assistance plans, changes in the eligibility requirements of public assistance plans …

Walmart, the nation’s largest private employer, is notorious for paying poverty wages and coaching employees to take advantage of social programs. In many states, Walmart employees are the largest group of Medicaid recipients.
