Two Links and an Observation

Thanks to Cindy for this wonderful, Faery Tale Wisdom about today’s world, called 2016: Year of the Serpent. This link is well worth a read by anyone who enjoys and/or respects the power of Story to provide deep awakening and understanding, as well as by anyone upset or confused about things like Brexit, Donald Trump, or the increased vitriol that plagues contemporary Western society.

The above link may be enough for people who already feel led to remove themselves from the fray and get back to creating a more positive reality in the here and now, in both tangible and spiritual ways — sometimes quite literally from the ground up by starting gardens and planting fruit trees. If instead of trees, you find yourself firmly planted in one shouting and rioting camp or another, then the next links will help you shake loose of the Left/Right shackles so you can reclaim your own opinions beyond propaganda and reclaim your own agency beyond government, media or their corporate sponsors telling you what to believe.

Zen Gardner ~ The Carefully Calculated Mass Imigration Agenda

This is a good article from Zen Gardner regarding something that has remained keenly on my radar for years, but especially in recent weeks when I’ve awakened most mornings from dreams of refugees. Loads and loads of refugees, not just from Latin America and Syria, but from other parts of the US and the rest of the world. I’ve long known that banksters and totalitarian governments employ the trauma of dislocation and relocation as a means of anchoring in their own psychopathic control. It’s far easier to dominate people struggling for survival who have lost their sense of identity.

Just as individual narcissists alienate individual victims from their friends, family members and cultural heritage, so the psycho globalists use the same methods, but on a national scale, crushing entire societies in preparation for their predetermined “solutions” to problems and reactions they created. Anyone aware of the narcissist playbook will not find it a stretch to recognize how they’ve upped the ante.

Here in the US, we’ve got “an illegal alien” problem with enormously divisive reactions from all sides. For those wanting to learn more about how this happened, I recommend exploring the Beehive Design Collective and also watching the documentary film, “Food Chains,” which explores the current day slavery in the US farming and supermarket business, triggered by globalist treaties like NAFTA, championed by “free trade” advocates like the WTO.

It’s truly alarming to watch that film, and doing so answered the nagging question I’d had regarding why the media allows Donald Trump to spout off about “deporting all the illegals” when flooding the US with immigrants is part of the overall agenda. When you see the slave or slave-like conditions of the (mostly illegal immigrant) people who harvest US produce, you’ll quickly realize that the opposite action — deporting all the illegals — would also immediately trigger a famine and economic collapse in the US, just like the banksters and globalist military industrial corporate complex have been trying to orchestrate. Donald Trump is no savior, and as Zen explains, the immigration situations in the US and Europe are no accidents.

Anyway, here’s Zen’s passionate article (one F-bomb warning towards the end for those readers who prefer to avoid such things). IMHO, well worth the read. If this all sounds too far fetched, I suggest further background reading on the official use of dislocation as a means of control by reading it straight from the bankster’s mouths in their Bankers Manifesto of 1892. The false right-left political paradigm and the removal of people from their homes in order to demoralize them and thereby make easier to control form the foundation of that official document first leaked in 1892.

The Carefully Calculated Mass Migration Agenda

This mass migration plan has been in the works for a long time, but they’re kicking it up several serious notches now, flooding the US borders while continuing to swarm European countries with any immigrants they can from a variety of cultures.

What and who is behind it?

Clearly staged US/NATO/Israeli sponsored terrorism and genocide are at work in the middle east, driving desperate people to seek asylum elsewhere, as the US mandates inviting in as many as possible over its southern border. And all in concert.

As usual, they give themselves away in their own documents and bloated speeches to their own inner circle. In particular, United Nations globalist fat cat Peter Sutherland, non-executive Chairman of Goldman Sachs and former BP CEO, never mind top Bilderberger and Trilateral Commission honcho, has come right out and stated their plan as plainly and arrogantly as possible.

_61034137_sutherland

It’s not clear that the comment made by last week by Peter Sutherland, the UN’s special representative for migration, really counts as a “gaffe,” since Sutherland seems to have no sense that what he said might have been disturbing.

Sutherland was speaking to the British House of Lords, according to a BBC report published last Thursday, and said that the European Union should “do its best to undermine” the “homogeneity” of its member states, because “the future prosperity of many EU states depended on them becoming multicultural.”

He also, according to the Beeb, suggested “the UK government’s immigration policy had no basis in international law.” (Kind of a novel interpretation of the authority of international law over a state’s control of its borders, but that wasn’t the worst of it.)

The report goes on:

Mr Sutherland, who is non-executive chairman of Goldman Sachs International and a former chairman of oil giant BP, heads the Global Forum on Migration and Development, which brings together representatives of 160 nations to share policy ideas.

He told the House of Lords committee migration was a “crucial dynamic for economic growth” in some EU nations “however difficult it may be to explain this to the citizens of those states”.

Yes, I bet it is hard to explain to those citizens, especially when the UN rep looks like he’s in cahoots with the EU to deliberately flood and multi-culturalize Europe via outside populations. Sutherland’s answer, of course, is that this is purely an economic problem (and where have we heard that before?)

An aging or declining native population in countries like Germany or southern EU states was the “key argument and, I hesitate to use the word because people have attacked it, for the development of multicultural states”, he added.

“It’s impossible to consider that the degree of homogeneity which is implied by the other argument can survive because states have to become more open states, in terms of the people who inhabit them. Just as the United Kingdom has demonstrated.”

[Sutherland] told the committee: “The United States, or Australia and New Zealand, are migrant societies and therefore they accommodate more readily those from other backgrounds than we do ourselves, who still nurse a sense of our homogeneity and difference from others.”

“And that’s precisely what the European Union, in my view, should be doing its best to undermine.” [emphasis mine]

Source

That’s pretty straightforward, to say the least. Where does he get his hubris? They’ve been doing this for a long time whether local officials want it or not.

The implementation of United Nations Agenda 21 and other programs such as Codex Alimentarius have been eroding society’s fabric behind the scenes like termites eating out a building’s infrastructure. All while bankster backed globalists mastermind the various tentacles manipulating humanity via their multinational banking, political and corporate stooges.

It’s important to note that the UN Sustainability 2030 Program is set to be ratified by the UN later this month. A major step up.

Coincidence? Not on your life.

The Planned Immigration Crisis

Again, the plan has been in effect for quite some time, breaking down American borders and homogenizing their weakened populace in a deliberately devastated economy being more militarized by the day in preparation for a societal breakdown, the very one they’ve engineered. Just as in Europe.

In addition, it is bringing massive division in America as they once again employ the age old totalitarian maxim to “divide and conquer.”

Here’s how they’ve led up to now in the US:

Behind the endless throngs of desperate Central American children arriving on the U.S. border and a steady wave of illegal immigrants from Mexico and beyond is a covert plan for global economic warfare — those building up the world of globalization are tearing down the sovereignty and financial strength of the United States and Europe to make way for the coming corporate new world order.

A generation of sending American jobs offshore under NAFTA, GATT and the WTO, dumping cheap corn on Mexico thereby destroying millions of farming jobs and unleashing disruptive retailers like Wal-Mart upon the fragile economies of Latin America have created turmoil, uncertainty and rivers of human migration… and along with it bitter tension and discord over the dynamics of immigration, illegal immigration and the struggle for a lasting standard of living under the New World Order.

The globalist plan to wreck our national sovereignty has been unfolding for awhile now…things are just speeding up in recent months.

EU Overload

This rapidly unfolding development defies any sense of sovereignty, as clearly intended. The sense of insecurity and outrage is palpable in regular citizens as this unabated, uncontrolled onslaught continues. While besieged countries of course seek refuge from their economically and militarily bombarded societies, the western nations perpetrating these attacks are on one hand publicly appalled at their “invasion” and desire to flee their devastated homelands, while with the other encouraging this very phenomenon.

Your typical Freemasonic playing of both sides of the chess game. That’s simply how they work, and always have. The unwitting are caught up in a cognitive dissonant state of choosing either false side, which shuts down mental rationality and intuitive understanding. In most – but not all.

But what would you do in the face of seeing super powers contesting over your very soil and homeland while at the same time destroying it? Would you sit there with your loved ones simply observing and hoping for the best? Or would you flee for seemingly safer grounds?

Brazen Bullshit and Tossing Wrenches

That’s the question to ask those refusing to wake up as we point out these obvious truths. The awakening lights fires under people and that’s a good thing, to get them off the fence and out of their perilous stunned and bewildered state. There’s no place more dangerous than not only being on the defensive, but in a condition of fear and confusion. Never mind a place under immediate attack, something about which most of the modern western world has no clue.

Yet.

That makes sitting ducks out of unaware individuals. But the tide is turning.

These entities are now pushing their programs with abject impunity while humanity tries to wrestle with these issues on a corrupt, futile, and inept political level. It won’t be until they fully grasp the big picture of what is being perpetrated that the people will have a true awareness of the scope of humanity’s planned takeover and the importance of not feeding the beast with their energy and cooperation any longer.

And standing strong in that awareness while pushing back in every way possible.

Knowledge and understanding eradicate fear, which is why their media minions make it so hard to connect the dots. But their illusive veil is coming down at a terrific rate now and I expect we’re going to see some serious wrenches thrown into their machinery. And it comes through awake and aware individuals.

You, and me.

To empower others with the truth is our most important duty, especially at this perilous time in history.

Keep on no matter what. And don’t fall for the fear and confusion agenda. They’ll be turning it up more and more so be on your toes and keep your vibrations high.

And chuck a few wrenches into their insane machinery while you’re at it.

Every wrench counts! Let’s grind this fucking beast to a halt. Gather some fortitude and do something radical. Their machinery is exposed and vulnerable. Let’s do some damage in any way we feel compelled. Lob the unexpected of any sort into any situation you can. Let them handle the results.

After all, that’s what they do to us. Nothing unauthorized going on here! :)

Now go have a nice day.

Much love, Zen

Paradise Stolen ~ The Myth of Efficiency

“Answering some of the arguments against the idea that small sustainable communities are impractical.” This video moves from “pie in the sky” to the insanity of globalism and then back to hands on, practical ideas that have already been proven to work.

The Beehive Design Collective Came to Elkhart County

This past Saturday, the Beehive Design Collective honored the People’s History of Elkhart with a two-hour presentation of Mesoamerica Resiste, which I posted about last year. Their wildly (overwhelmingly) successful kickstarter campaign explains the premise of this artist-activist group, so I’ll repost the video here:

I shared the kickstarter video with our Transition Goshen guys, and one of them was so excited about the storytelling potential that he contacted them to come here. Goshen College had hosted them before, but intuitively, I felt the People’s History of Elkhart would be the better match this time. Even though I knew nothing about the People’s History of Elkhart, it turned out to be a great match, because of the wide diversity of people the group attracts. Not only did they host the Beehive Collective, but they also provided homemade food and local musicians at the Historic Roosevelt Center — an old school that locals had fought to keep standing.

The People’s History of Elkhart won that battle, and now the old Roosevelt School houses both apartments above and an active community center below. I spoke with several of the people involved in the battle to save the historic school, and they were so proud of this community center and how it enhances all their lives. The spirit of these locals having stood up for their own tradition in their own community mirrored so well the stories we heard of the resistance to the plan for corporate dominance in Mesoamerica.

Beehive After Event

Above, you can see the huge banners of the completed 9 year political art project. They also used a projector screen to highlight closeups while sharing the stories. They designed Mesoamerica Resiste as a triptych, which means that the artwork opens up like double doors to reveal what’s inside. The banner on the right shows the front “doors” as “Plan Mesoamerica” while the twice as large banner on the left shows the inner resistance to that corporate plan. I loved that the resistance is twice as large as the plan!

That said, it was a sobering presentation. The plan — run by globalist corporations — aims for nothing less than total control of the region between North and South America. As one of the three “Bees” mentioned, “This area has always been ‘in the way.’ Columbus wanted to get to India, and this region also poses major challenges for globalist corporations who want easy transportation between North and South America.”

Under the guise of “free trade” and sometimes even under the guise of “greenwashing,” these ruthless corporations have staged military coups in sovereign nations, robbed land and water from indigenous people, and have built 8-lane highways and bridges in areas where few to none of the locals drive. They’ve erected police state surveillance to monitor “free trade zones,” which sound positive on paper but really mean that no local laws apply there. No workers’ rights, no environmental protections outside of what the corporations dictate, no local say in construction, and no protection for local economies and culture. Hydro-electric dams and railroads disrupt entire ecosystems and countries, and Western media gets pumped through airwaves to further undermine local traditions and identity.

NAFTA and its next generation CAFTA have largely accomplished in Latin America what the TPP and TTIP hope to accomplish in North America, Asia and Europe: complete corporate control over all aspects of life. Listeners learned — perhaps for the first time — about the IMF (International Monetary Fund), World Bank, WTO (World Trade Organization), just how bogus the War on Drugs really is, along with the devastating effects of GMO monoculture farming on the local farmers. Very little of the information was new to me, but I appreciated the elaborate illustrations through fable characters representing major players.

I did have one major light bulb moment at the beginning when a representative from the People’s History of Elkhart shared his own family’s story of being corn farmers in Mexico who had lost their land due to the US GMO-corn dominance policies of NAFTA. He described how the consistent price manipulation of the US GMO crops undercut Mexican corn farmers and eventually made it impossible to compete. Mexico used to outlaw GMO corn, but once “free trade” occurred, this young man’s family needed to leave their generations’ old farm and move to America in search of other work. I had not made the connection between our immigration issues and corporate agricultural dominance in the Americas. I knew about the military coups, but I had not extended that awareness to include the stranglehold of corporations like Monsanto and Chiquita. Watching this presentation really brought home the importance of local food — everywhere. The US fetishes for bananas and coffee carry with them tremendous karmic consequences. David tells me similar political outrage happened in the once sovereign kingdom of Hawaii over Dole pineapples.

The first part of the presentation revealed such grim, depressing information that the Beehive Collective refused to take an intermission, lest people “leave before the good news.” Indeed, many in the audience seemed overwhelmed, and more than a few “listeners” opted to talk throughout the entire presentation! This beyond rude action makes sense when realizing that on some level, people just did not want to have their world view altered. They did not want to take on the responsibility for how their purchases and unconscious lifestyle and habits might directly cause destruction of others’ lives. Ignorance = ignore-ance, and imho, we engage in that behavior at our own peril.

With the TPP and TTIP posed for fast track approval, many “comfortable” “first world” nations may well find themselves the next Mesoamerica. Will we show the strength, creativity and spirit of Mesoamerica Resiste? I don’t know. I hope so, but I’ve found most people prefer ignorance to positive action. Even when I mentioned to several attendees, “THIS is why I have concerns about Agenda 21 being co-opted by corporations like Monsanto. THIS is why I send you links about the TPP and TTIP,” many people just stared at me in awkward silence.

The second part of the presentation shared stories of farmers, teachers and students joining together in organized, yet fluid movements to undermine the colonizer’s agenda. They proclaimed the slogan, “Un No, Muchos Sis,” “one no, many yes’s.” The Beehive Collective spent years interviewing individuals and groups working on the front lines of the resistance. Together, they came up with symbols to represent each group, and Mesoamerica Resiste depicts the tremendous diversity of this region. Dozens of species of ants, trees, bees, birds and other animals use their own characteristics to undermine the globalist machine.

I enjoyed hearing the creative methods of inconvenience, including one group piling up garbage from a corporation in order to block the roads for that corporation to pass through. I also loved how these groups work to unite young and old, preserving the old ways through teaching the local and tribal heritage that corporations attempt to destroy. The three sisters (squash, beans and corn) represent the three main forces fighting together. In the same way that this traditional planting honors the unique qualities of each plant and finds ways to become stronger together, these teachers, students and farmers use their own gifts towards common goals.

The story of the ants blew me away: “A giant swarm of ants comes down the trunk of the Ceiba tree. The ants, like so many other little critters, play an essential role in the ecosystem. Scurrying beneath the dirt, they aerate the soil, making it possible for plants to grow, essentially laying the foundations for life on earth. While these ants seem small compared to the entire forest, they outweigh all other animals and plants combined. The ants remind us that great changes are in the hands of the small and many. Working tirelessly, these miniscule creatures embody the phrase, la revolucion es el trabajo de las homingas (the revolution is ant’s work). Little by little, their collective work has the strength to achieve great transformations, which reminds us that together, we can create tremendous changes in the world around us.

“Some of the ants proudly carry messages from Indigenous communities in southern Mexico who have been slowly and steadily building autonomy for several decades. These sayings are Zapatista principles and also come from their experience of building ‘good government’ councils, which encourage frequent rotation of leadership: ‘lead by obeying’ the people in your community, they advise; ‘work from below, without seeking to rise to power,’ ‘walk by asking questions’ … Each ant is a different species, reminding us that the beauty of the world lies in its diversity of cultures, of languages, of ways of being: ‘we are the same because we are different;’ ‘a world where many worlds fit.’ In the face of so many threats to the diversity of life on this planet, the ants converge at the base of the Ceiba to declare, ‘Ya basta! Enough!'”

Another shocking thing I learned involved bees. We hear about the decline of the honey bee, but few know that honey bees come from Europe and mimic the colonizing of Central America. “As European colonists invaded Central America, they brought with them the invasive European honey bee, which aggressively began to push the native Mesoamerican Stingless bees out of their ecological niche. Today, deforestation, pollution, and industrial farming are destroying habitat and causing the collapse of pollinator species all over Central America. Bees are an indicator species, and the drastic decline of their populations may forecast a larger ecosystem collapse. Restoring native bee populations is vitally important to the health of ecosystems and agriculture globally, and is directly linked to the survival of Indigenous peoples and beekeeping knowledge. Traditional beekeeping is an intimate relationship between bees, people, culture and the land.

Vanilla and stingless bees: Pollinators and the plants they pollinate need each other. Native Melipona bees and the vanilla plant share one of these specific symbiotic relationships. Melipona bees are the only natural pollinators of the delicate vanilla orchid. Without this specialized interaction, vanilla orchids would only survive by hand pollination, making vanilla one of the most labor intensive crops in the world.”

The presentation went on to depict and describe ancestors and spiritual support from unseen forces. Because I already knew the most shocking information described, I found the entire presentation profoundly encouraging. I love that this group of artists dedicated themselves to telling stories that would otherwise remain unspoken in the “comfortable” US. I also love (and practice) the idea of empowered political action through art and story.

If you’ve tried with little success to awaken your local community to both the threats and the potential of our times, you might want to host the Beehive Collective in your city or school. Having hippie-dressed, tattooed, young artists describe the ravages of free trade and greenwashing cuts through the stereotype of “paranoid, right-wing radicals” warning about things like Agenda 21, globalism, water wars, corporate fascism, and the importance of maintaining national, state and local sovereignty. I don’t know that the audience fully grasped the excellent discussion of “fascism in the US government,” but I hope the presentation at least began to scatter seeds.

For those concerned with more local issues such as the impending water wars and land grabs (of which you can find an excellent discussion in the videos below), you can rest assured that the Beehive Collective “gets” it. They displayed other artwork regarding the corporate takeover of water in Maine:

Nestle Maine Water

… with another image acknowledging the World Bank’s quote: “The next world war will be about water.” Unfortunately, that image photographed upside down and will not turn right-side up. I would love to consider that a sign that through conscious local actions, the war agenda will not succeed as planned. 🙂

Walk for Water

Those of you still on the fence about all this “paranoia about globalization” might want to watch the following videos, which describe ways that “green” initiatives and global treaties facilitate illegal land grabs and undermine national, state, and local sovereignty. Awareness does matter. As the Beehive Collective shared, for every one successful pushback of a hydro-electric dam, railroad or highway, perhaps 100 other resistance movements fail, but nonetheless, the resistance has had an effect. As with the delayed TPP agreement, globalization has fallen behind its intended schedule. More time passing allows more people to wake up, and as people wake up, we have the chance to reclaim our power and sovereignty before corporate fascism and globalization homogenize and destroy the beautiful diversity and balance of our planet.

Blessed Be(e)

Note that the BLM euthanized half the remaining “endangered” tortoises they’re claiming to protect. This is not about tortoises, and Cliven Bundy shared some stories about the apparently symbiotic relationship between the tortoise and formerly grazing sheep and cattle. Tortoise population declined sharply when the other ranchers lost their land.

The larger issue concerns an ongoing attack on organic farmers, ranchers and off-grid people living off the land — all in the name of “sustainability,” while undermining actual sustainability. When the BLM or other federal agency claims land and refuses anyone the right to access that land, we lose more and more of our ability to feed ourselves outside of BigAg government control. In California, “easements” and regulations have made it difficult to impossible for some organic farmers to maintain their land. The recent Farm Bill absurdly prohibits organic farmers from using manure or compost to enhance fertility of their land, while giving a free pass to CAFO’s (confined animal feeding operations) that poison our land and water while fostering horrific animal cruelty. Once the land grab occurs, any hope of oversight disappears, which opens the way for corporations to come in and frack, mine or monocrop without protesters.

These land grabs often occur over bogus environmental concerns that touch the hearts of well meaning people. End results, however, steal vast tracks of land where only authorized offices can tread. With Citizens United and the recent Supreme Court decision to protect/endorse big money in politics, we can well imagine what happens once the land gets into corporate hands. I’m all for real environmental protection, as in, get the corporations out of our water supplies! Get GMO’s out of our food chain with their genetic drift and horrendous pesticides and herbicides. Protect, rather than euthanize, endangered species, and keep them situated in the complex biodiversity in which they used to thrive. These land and water grabs are a bunch of BS, and if Americans and other “first world” nations don’t want to become the next Beehive Collective triptych, we would all be wise to take responsibility for ourselves and resist in whatever creative and empowered ways we can.

For the Love of Money

This NY Times article by Sam Polk is the best article I’ve read to date about Wall Street. It begins:

“IN my last year on Wall Street my bonus was $3.6 million — and I was angry because it wasn’t big enough. I was 30 years old, had no children to raise, no debts to pay, no philanthropic goal in mind. I wanted more money for exactly the same reason an alcoholic needs another drink: I was addicted.”

The article goes on to reveal an inside look into perhaps the most pervasive and unchecked addiction in our culture … one with enormous ripple effects but so lauded by so many people that not a single support group exists for it. Yet. Please click here to read this insightful and eventually inspiring article by a former hedge-fund trader and the founder of the nonprofit Groceryships.

For anyone who has any additional questions about what wealth addiction looks like, here’s an article about Larry “pull it” Silverstein, owner of the World Trade Center buildings who conveniently took out huge insurance policies for terror attacks just prior to 9/11, ordered the controlled demolition of the mildly burning Tower 7, collected a cool $5 billion from insurance … and who … twelve years later just as American Airlines emerges from bankruptcy, has decided to sue the airlines whose plane supposedly crashed into his towers, because, you know, $5 billion just isn’t enough.

Must. Have. More.

“Instead of donating even a penny to the 9/11 first responders who were told they would be fine while inhaling toxic substances only to be denied healthcare for their chronic conditions, Silverstein says that he simply hasn’t been relieved of his ‘economic’ loss that suffered after 9/11. Even after receiving around $5 billion from his insurance company following the destruction of the World Trade Center buildings, he says that he needs another $3.5 billion to line his pockets. An additional 3.5 billion that brings the total to 8.5 billion, which airline attorney Roger Podesta says will be 2 1/2 times the fair value of the fallen buildings.”

Can you say, “Junkie?” Details here.

“The U.S. incarcerates more people than any country in the world. …25 percent of prison inmates in the world are locked up in the U.S.,” [source] many for addictions or bogus drug related charges. Just curious when we will begin to see some “time outs” for some of the most damaging addicts on the planet … some of whose institutions also happen to be laundering vast amounts of drug money from CIA drug running.

I wonder how the world will change when these people get off the sauce and start moving through the 12 Steps of Wealth Addiction:

1. We admitted we were powerless over money – that our lives had become unmanageable.

2. Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.

3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.

4. Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.

5. Admitted to God, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.

6. Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.

7. Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.

8. Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.

9. Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.

10. Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.

11. Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.

12. Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to wealth addicts and to practice these principles in all our affairs.

“I wonder” is a very powerful phrase. I wonder when more wealth junkies will take the plunge to the rock bottom that leads to freedom. May it be so.

As with alcoholism, so with wealth addiction:

“Individuals that are involved in peer-groups of the Alcoholic Anonymous 12 steps program don’t think that quitting drinking is easy.

“They believe that it takes a large amount of willingness, a change in attitudes and acts on the alcoholic individual’s part to successfully be able to make a positive change in their life without alcohol.

“This change is achieved through the involvement of four individual phases which can be seen in the list of the 12 steps above. These phases are….

“An admission on the alcoholic individual’s part that they indeed have an addiction to alcohol and need to abstain from alcohol.

Submission of the alcoholic person’s will and life to the power of God or a Higher Authority.

“The act of restitution with individuals that the alcoholic has harmed in any way.

Spreading the message of AA and the 12 steps and principles to achieve each of the above, providing each person with a healthy alcohol-free life and the ability to help others.

“Recovering alcoholics continue to live by the 12 steps in order to stay sober. The reason they continue live these principles is to learn a new healthier, happier and freer way of living, while removing various alcoholic behaviors that may be in their way.” [source]

Addiction is a spiritual disease. When we, as a society, recognize the disease of wealth addiction instead of aspiring to and rewarding it, we can stage our own intervention and begin to heal. Stop waiting for angels and aliens to save us. We need some self-respect and self-responsibility, along with partnering with the Divine:

“God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.”

Change beings with serenity, but it also requires courage and wisdom.

Blessed Be.

Elf Lobby Blocks Iceland Road Project

Oh, those Icelanders and their elves! This headline appeared in Sunday’s edition of The Guardian (thanks, Tania!):


“Elf lobby blocks Iceland road project

Supreme court to rule on case brought by Friends of Lava, who cite environmental impact of highway and effect on elf culture”

The article details the complex debate among environmentalists, elf-communicators, politicians and would-be highway builders. Although road projects have been halted before due to elf concerns, this one threatens to go right through an “Elf Church,” and so it’s raised particular concerns in a country where an estimated 62% of the population believes that elves at least might exist. One of my favorite excerpts:

“Terry Gunnell, a folklore professor at the University of Iceland, said he was not surprised by the wide acceptance of the possibility of elves.

“‘This is a land where your house can be destroyed by something you can’t see (earthquakes), where the wind can knock you off your feet, where the smell of sulphur from your taps tells you there is invisible fire not far below your feet, where the northern lights make the sky the biggest television screen in the world, and where hot springs and glaciers “talk”,’ Gunnell said.

“‘In short, everyone is aware that the land is alive, and one can say that the stories of hidden people and the need to work carefully with them reflects an understanding that the land demands respect.'”

I keep saying, there’s a connection between those who respect Nature Spirits and the land, and those who respect themselves enough to demand freedom from gangster-banksters and governments in collusion with them. “Scandinavian folklore is full of elves, trolls and other mythological characters. Most people in Norway, Denmark and Sweden haven’t taken them seriously since the 19th century, but elves are no joke to many in Iceland.” A few other things that are no joke in Iceland: privacy rights, mortgage forgiveness, freedom from corrupt power companies, and arresting the bankers who deliberately caused the 2008 housing crisis. Iceland leads the way in so many things. You can read the full article here.

Syria, Obama, GMO’s and Banksters

Some things you may or may not know about Syria, Obama, GMO’s and the Banksters:

In October 2012, Syria’s President Assad banned GMO’s in food “to preserve the health of human beings, animals, vegetables and the environment.”

Contrast this to the Monsanto Protection Act that Congress and Obama approved, even after scientific studies proved the cancerous and other illness causing effects of GMO’s. Contrast this also to the next generation of GMO approval — seeds genetically engineered to withstand even more toxic herbicide and insecticidal sprays, crops “designed to work with dicamba (a developmental or reproductive toxin), isoxaflutole (a carcinogen), and 2,4-D, which was one of the two chemicals that made up Agent Orange, the toxic defoliant the U.S. sprayed in Vietnam.” And again, contrast Syria’s GMO ban with the secret TPP trade agreement pushed by the Obama Administration — an agreement that Congress has been denied access to see, though leaked documents reveal that (among other things) the TPP threatens to remove nations’ ability to ban GMO ingredients or assert food quality control standards.

Recently, at least 22 children died after eating insecticide tainted GMO tainted free meals in India.

According to Nation of Change:

“Jeffrey Smith from the Institute for Responsible Technology explains exactly how Monsanto’s genetically modified corn is toxic to humans, according to a new French study from the University of Caen. In the stunning audio below, Smith details how this corn is designed to rupture the stomach of insects and what it did to the stomachs of humans during this study.

“At the very same time President Obama continues to allow his appointees, Michael Taylor, in charge of food safety at the FDA, and Tom Vilsack, Secretary of Agriculture, to maintain GMOs are safe, the White House holds events to ‘inform’ and ‘educate’ parents about healthy school lunches for children.”
