Why are you drinking milk?

There are many claims that milk/dairy is good for our bodies, supposedly by providing us with Vitamin D and calcium. However, fruits give us as much or more calcium and vitamin D as they claim milk provides, and animal milk is actually not digestible by our bodies. After the age of 2, humans lose the enzymes needed to digest milk. It is logical to see that milk is not meant for human consumption after this age and that the only kind of milk that babies should be consuming is their mother's milk. It makes no sense to take milk from an animal (such as a cow) that has produced it for her calves. Even worse, most farmers separate the cows from their calves and continue to repeatedly milk the cows for mass production.
It is also important to take into consideration the negative effects of animal milk. Cow's milk has up to 200 times the safe levels measurable quantities of herbicides, pesticides, dioxins and up to 52 powerful antibiotics, blood, pus, feces, bacteria and viruses. Cow's milk can have traces of anything the cow ate, including radioactive fallout from nuke testing. If you don't find this disturbing, you are not very concerned for your health or the well being of others.
Milk causes mucus build up in our bodies because it cannot be digested and when the body builds up acids, it forms deficiencies and toxicities known as 'diseases'. Why would we want to put indigestible milk that does not in fact provide us with calcium and vitamin D inside our bodies, when we can get the calcium and vitamin D from living foods such as fruits and vegetables. 'Milk does a body good' is a false statement.
"Neither vitamins, minerals nor hormones can do any work - without enzymes." - Dr. Edward Howell

Alternative farming:

Anyone know of any dairy farmers who switched from producing milk to growing fruits and vegetables as an alternative, so they can still be farmers and not have to give up their livelihood? I would love to share those stories!

How do we see ourselves?

Suffering that exists in this world is not something that we must go though. But as it is there, one must understand it and go beyond it. A mind that is incapable of suffering is religious in the true sense of the word. It becomes a passionate mind. A mind that is hurt, is not an innocent mind. An innocent mind is incapable of being hurt. From Latin innocent meaning 'not harming'. But the word has been misused.
From childhood, parents compare their child with another child. When we compare, we are hurting our child, yet we do it! Is it possible to educate a child without comparison, without images, so the child can never be hurt in that way? One is hurt because one has built an image about oneself. It's like placing a wall between you and others and if others extend upon that wall, you get hurt. A child can identify with a name, it does not need an image. Through education, through tradition, through propaganda, we have built an image of ourselves based on what others say. Can a child ever be educated to never get hurt? Professors and scholars say, a child must get hurt in order to live on the world. But when they are asked if they ever want their child to get hurt, they are silent.
Through education and the social structure of our society in which we live, we have been hurt. We have images about ourselves, made by comparison, which are inevitably going to be hurt. Is it possible to be rid of the image that has been created of ourselves and never to create one again?

Our higher mind is free of images and conditioning. Imagination is the key in the alignment of our physical and higher mind. It cannot be hurt. 'I' 'magi' 'nation' - we are a nation of magicians. Imagination is a powerful tool that can be used to allow and create the changes we prefer to create within our lives individually and/or collectively, globally.
Our imagination is the conduit between our physical and higher mind, through which our higher mind communicates with us in ways which are more reflective of our passion, our excitement and preference. If you are willing to use your imagination without filtering the communication from your higher mind through belief systems that contain fear (such as the image of ourselves placed by others of who we are and what our limited capabilities are), then you will find that the outcome can always be a positive one and you can always amplify and magnify that in any direction and area of your life. The higher mind can see all the pathways or possibilities we can take in life and it guides you towards the path of least resistance - the path that is most truly you. By following your excitement and true passion, you will always be completely and purely on the path that is most truly you - your core true natural self.

They are closely interconnected and interdependent

Currently re-reading 'The Turning Point' by Fritjof Capra, a must -read! Here's an excerpt from chapter one:
'It is a striking sign of our time that the people who are supposed to be experts in various fields can no longer deal with the urgent problems that have arisen in the areas of their expertise. Economists are unable to understand inflation, oncologists are totally confused about the causes of cancer, psychiatrists are mystified by schizophrenia, police are helpless in the face of rising crime, and the list goes on… the persistence of slums, poverty and crime.
None of them, however, identified the real problem that underlies our crisis of ideas: the fact that most academics subscribe to narrow perceptions of reality which are inadequate for dealing with the major problems of our time. These problems, as we shall see in detail, are systematic problems, which means that they are closely interconnected and interdependent. They cannot be understood within the fragmented methodology characteristic of our academic disciplines and government agencies.
Such an approach will never resolve any of our difficulties but will merely shift them around in the complex web of social and ecological relations. A resolution can be found only if the structure of the web itself changed, and this will involve profound transformations of our social institutions, values, and ideas. As we examine the sources of our cultural crisis it will become apparent that most of our leading thinkers are outdated conceptual models and irrelevant variables.'

Failing to connect heart to heart

In what author Daniel Goleman calls a "limbic tango", partners cycle through a spousal conflict usually initiated by the woman who tends to be the emotion manager of most relationships. Since she is usually the partner who is more relational and "heart" focused and vigilant for relationship problems, she complains about a problem she feels in her heart but her spouse does not sense in his. The man, who usually has his heart less into the relationship, tries to use his brain to try to figure out the "substance of the problem" and how it might be immediately fixed. His protective and selfish brain personalizes the complaint as it's own failure. Since the problem was detected by the woman's heart and the man is trying to solve it with his head, many relationship problems may be due to speaking in two different codes. The man's brain feels it's heart starting to flood and tells him to withdraw. It says, "Go golfing, watch a ball game, cut the grass, but do anything to just get away from this hassle for awhile."

When a man withdraws, or intellectualizes a complaint, the woman goes from emotional disappointment to intellectual disgust and becomes critical. Failing to connect "heart to heart" she now uses her brain more than her heart and tries to find her partner's weak mental point in order to make her emotional point. She exaggerates, sulks, or initiates a subtle emotional vendetta intended to teach her love-blind partner a lesson "the hard way". Because Gottman's research shows that men tend to be more "hot-hearted" and cardiovascularly reactive than woman during conflicts, the man's heart begins to flood.

When a man's heart floods, his brain detects a vague sense of dread caused by physiological reaction to a sense of helplessness in the face of his partner's disappointment and disgust. Wanting to stem the flood, the man "stonewalls" or tries to sever the intensified energetic connection with his energetics principles of volume conduction and dynamic systemic energy available throughout our body.

'The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated'

Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
"Animals have always played an important role in agriculture. Not only do they provide us with food and fiber, but they also help to recycle nutrients and add to soil fertility. Over recent decades, however, the farming of animals has become increasingly separated from its natural existence on the land." Read More...

We’ve been bamboozled long enough

“One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.” - Carl Sagan

 Corporations will put the profit margin and will put making money from billionaires, over the lives and the quality of life of foreign citizens. And I don't think it's crazy for people to fight against that. In fact, you resemble the greatest amount of spirit that any American has ever had who fought for his rights and his dignity. It's ironic that here, in this country, the profit margin is put before people's lives, even in the food that we eat. GMOs (corporations) don't want their foods labeled. If you're so proud of it why don't you put your seal of approval on it? People are making too much money off this stage of evolution (capitalism), to stop and get off it and take us to the next level.
If we're still here in 100 years, then we've basically put the nail on the coffin for humanity, to the point where we can't speak about healthy food without being persecuted by the companies who sell food that is bad for you. They're making too much money selling processed stuff (that is going to be proven to give people cancer) in order to stop and be taken off the market."- Immortal Technique

A Butterfly Dreaming

"Once upon a time, I, Chuang Chou, dreamt I was a butterfly, fluttering hither and thither, to all intents and purposes a butterfly. I was conscious only of my happiness as a butterfly, unaware that I was Chou. Soon I awakened, and there I was, veritably myself again. Now I do not know whether I was then a man dreaming I was a butterfly, or whether I am now a butterfly, dreaming I am a man. Between a man and a butterfly there is necessarily a distinction. The transition is called the transformation of material things." - ‪Zhuangzi‬ (As translated by Lin Yutang)

New Worlds

"Ending secrecy is going to be a very difficult ride. It wont be fun in a lot of ways because there's a lot of invested interest in keeping it that way, as we can all see. And nevertheless, it has to happen. No matter how many times the powers that be tell us there's nothing there, it keeps showing up. The UFO lies has done bad things to the soul of the world. Think about it. You have this big big reality of whoever these beings are, whatever they are. They have technology that is so vastly beyond what we're supposed to have, and yet we tell ourselves every single day that this doesn't exist. There's a dissonance there, a cognitive dissonance." - Richard Dolan
 “In very different ways, the possibility that the universe is teeming with life, and the opposite possibility that we are totally alone, are equally exciting. Either way, the urge to know more about the universe seems to me irresistible, and I cannot imagine that anybody of truly poetic sensibility could disagree.” - Richard Dawkins

The Big Bang

Existence is not subject to time. Time is subject to existence. Time is a creation within existence, therefore existence itself is timeless.
Using an analogy, imagine a subatomic particle (the one) in an empty infinite space. But in this state that we call 'the one', there's no reflectivity and no self awareness. It doesn't know itself. It has nothing else to relate to. So there really is no gravity, no sense of mass, no sense of space or time. It just exists as a point of pure existence.
But because it does contains everything, it also contains the idea of that which it's not. This creates the first separation, the first difference, the first reflection that it is capable of doing anything and everything imaginable. In other words, it can travel at infinite speed. Nothing holds it back. There are no laws of physics - yet.
If you understand that the single particle can travel throughout that empty infinite space at infinite speed, then that means that particle can actually appear to be everywhere at once. Thus it can appear to be an infinite number of particles, even though it's actually only one!

Your Heart Has Wisdom

'It doesn't need to be more complicated than just listening to your heart and following it. Because your heart has memory. Your heart has wisdom. Your heart has consciousness. Your heart actually thinks. And when you can develop a balanced dialogue between the heart mind and the head mind, that's when everything falls into alignment. The head needs to take it's queue from the heart, not contradict it and try to run everything… the heart is in the center of your being for a reason, not the head.' - Bashar

Kale For Christmas

Kale chips are a great snack for the Christmas holidays! Kale alkalizes the body and contains many health benefits, including antioxidant nutrients. I use a dehydrator so they are served raw with enzymes. Eating raw(living) foods assists in digestion, and helps the body to focus on rebuilding new and healthy cells through the use of the metabolic enzymes. Enjoy!

You are your own universe

"How you define your reality is what you experience. All things in physical reality are fundamentally neutral, they have no built in meaning at all. You are designed to give life meaning. You are designed to give meaning to different circumstances and situations. That's the gift, that's the power you have been given by creation as a co-creator. The meaning you give to something determines the effect you get out of it. Again, this is just physics… what you put out is what you get back. It's just like a reflection in the mirror. Physical reality is in a sense, a mirror. And if you see in the mirror that your face is frowning, you don't try to go to the mirror and make the reflection smile. The only way to make the reflection smile is for you to smile first." - Darryl Anka (channeling Bashar)

History Repeats Itself

"If you view time as a wheel, all we have to do is figure out how long the wheels are, and then if there's a traumatic event that happens in the wheel, and then the wheel turns again, we're in the future.
Past, present and future do exist in one sense, but if something really bad happens in a previous wheel, it's going to happen again in the next one because it leaves a residue. It leaves a blue print. So that does very much relate to the cycles of history. Some of this stuff are archetypes and it's like a universal mind, but some of it is the result of things that happened before. And when the cycle comes around again those influences, we have to work off the trauma - and they will repeat." - David Wilcock.

Honest Communication

Communicating honestly about products and services is important to consumers. A poll of 12,000 consumers from 12 countries around the world were asked which brands they consider most authentic. McDonald’s, Samsung, Apple and Carrefour took the top spots globally. In the U.S., Walmart, Starbucks, Amazon and Apple landed at the top. Article here.
'When people talk to me about Illuminati and they say Illuminati is so scary. I say, You don't have to use a hypothetical. You want to talk about people behind close doors who make decisions about your life and what they are going to sell you that may be killing you…that's Walmart!

Homemade CornChips With 'Sour Cream' (Sunflower seeds)

Over the summer, we bought some organic corn and made dehydrated corn chips with homemade 'sour cream'. We don't have dairy in our diet so we love to discover alternatives to our favorite dairy foods, such as sour cream. The recipe uses sunflower seeds as the key ingredient for the cream. We only eat certified organic food - both our sunflower seeds and corn were organic. We also made sure to pre-soak the seeds! Buying organic corn is a healthier option because Certified Organic farmers are not allowed to plant GMO seed. You can find out more information at the Non GMO Project website. Check out the simple recipe below - enjoy!
