(Julian Wash) Today I would like to return to your awareness an aspect of the Human condition that bargains with uncertainty and finds comfort in denial. Every so often we must deal with an unpleasant truth we wish would just go away. Sometimes the truth can be very shocking and we find ourselves inadequately prepared to handle it. That’s when denial comes to the rescue— and what can’t be denied can always be rationalized away.
(Sofia Adamson) “When we create peace and harmony and balance in our minds, we will find it in our lives.” ~Louise L. Hay, You Can Heal Your Life
(Gary Z McGee) The path from status-quo junkie to having a higher perspective is a difficult one. No doubt. Similarly, the path from soft-slave statist to free-range human is difficult. But as Spinoza said,“All things excellent are as difficult as they are rare.” The philosophy of the free-range human is an attempt at being excellent despite the difficulty.
(Justin Deschamps) Freedom and justice are intimately linked. The freedom to do anything, from a lawful perspective, is derived from the fact you have rights, the same rights that other people have. Justice serves as the mechanism to ensure the rights of the individual are restored when violated. The laws of morality guide this process, but unlike natural laws, which are automatic in enforcement, moral laws have to be enforced by people.
(Dr. Mercola) The shocking film “Genetically Modified Children” unveils the horrors of decades of chemical-intensive agricultural practices in Argentina, where the majority of crops are genetically modified (GM) and routinely doused in dangerous agrochemicals, and the chokehold big tobacco companies such as Philip Morris and chemical and seed giants have on poverty-stricken farmers desperate to earn a living.
(Sigmund Fraud) Flip this quote from Dr. Jung around and it suggests that once you become aware of the unconscious forces directing you, you will experience freedom and gain newfound control over your own life. This realization gives us extraordinary power.
(Mindvalley) How often do you find people turning to jealousy or envy when someone they know has good fortune? It’s actually a lot more common than you might think, especially in the workplace or among friends.
(Gary Z McGee) It is of the first order of importance to remember this: “the system cannot be fixed by the system.” It can only be fixed by the resistance of healthy, reasonable, imaginative, knowledgeable, compassionate and non-violent individuals. It can only be fixed by people who have re-conditioned their cultural conditioning, un-matrixed the Matrix, ninjaneered their statist indoctrination, and unwashed their political brainwash.
(Alex Pietrowski) The explosion of interest in the medical benefits of cannabidiol (CBD) have followed the greater acceptance of cannabis and hemp. While the CBD industry grows at record pace, a vast amount of research is being conducted to identify the explicit health benefits of CBD.
(Isaac Davis) Social media censorship is here and out in the open, and it has become clear that the major tech companies are working together to shut down and silence members of the free press for political reasons. Of course, this has everything to do with Donald Trump being in office, and whether you support him or not, what is being lost in the effort to depose him will eventually affect everyone.
(Gary Z McGee) What makes our society so sick? How do we know for sure that our society is unhealthy? Is there a way to reason our way into a clear explanation for why our society is unfit for healthy human beings attempting to evolve in a healthier way?
(Isaac Davis) In March of 2018, the U.S. national debt topped $21 trillion dollars, and now the average debt liability for an individual taxpayer is projected to be $161,022 by 2019. This means that every American taxpayer pretty much owes the government a house, when you consider that the median house price is around $200,000.
(Alex Pietrowski) In an incredible victory for plaintiff Dwayne Johnson, a San Francisco jury just found agrochemical and seed giant Monsanto guilty of failing to adequately warn that it’s products Roundup and Ranger may cause cancer when used in a reasonable and expectable manner.
(Azriel ReShel) Many centuries ago, Lao Tzu, spoke of the four cardinal virtues, teaching that when we practice them as a way of life, we come to know the truth of the universe. The ancient Chinese master said that living and practicing these teachings can open you to higher wisdom and greater happiness, as they realign you to the source and enable you to access all the powers that source energy has to offer.
(Christina Sarich) Every spiritual culture has their symbolism. While there is wisdom to be had from each spiritual practice, Theravada Buddhist monks’ symbolically orange or saffron robes have captured the curiosity of the world.
