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!

Fear vs Logic

'Once a person comes to accept that a specific belief must be held in order to avoid eternal torture, they are no longer free to think independently. Their mind is held hostage by threat of eternal punishment. Logic may point to a fact, but if that fact threatens the core belief system, and that logic threatens their eternal destination, in such a conflict, only the strongest are able to break free and choose the side of logic.'-  excerpt from youtube video

This gate was made only for you

Before the law stands a doorkeeper.

To this doorkeeper there comes a man from the country and prays for admittance to the Law. But the doorkeeper says that he cannot grant admittance at the moment. The man thinks it over and asks if he will be allowed in later. "It is possible," says the doorkeeper, "but not at the moment." Since the gate stands open as usual, and the doorkeeper steps to one side, the man stoops to peer through the gateway into the interior. Observing that, the doorkeeper laughs and says: "If you are so drawn to it, just try to go in despite my veto. But take note: I am powerful. And I am only the least of the doorkeepers. From hall to hall there is one doorkeeper after another, each more powerful than the last. The third doorkeeper is already so terrible that even I cannot bear to look at him." These are difficulties the man from the country has not expected; the Law, he thinks, should surely be accessible at all times and to everyone, but as he now takes a closer look at the doorkeeper in his fur coat, with his big sharp nose and long thin, black Tartar beard, he decides that it is better to wait until he gets permission to enter. The doorkeeper gives him a stool and lets him sit down at one side of the door.

There he sits for days and years. He makes many attempts to be admitted, and wearies the doorkeeper by his importunity. The doorkeeper frequently has little interviews with him, asking him questions about his home and many other things, but the questions are put indifferently, as great lords put them, and always finish with the statement that he cannot be let in yet. The man, who has furnished himself with many things for his journey, sacrifices all he has, however valuable to the doorkeeper. The doorkeeper accepts everything, but always with the remark: "I am only taking it to keep you from thinking you have omitted anything."

During these many years the man fixes his attention almost continuously on the doorkeeper. He forgets the other doorkeepers, and this first one seems to him the sole obstacle preventing access to the Law. He curses his bad luck, in his early years boldly and loudly; later, as he grows old, he only grumbles to himself. He becomes childish, and since in his yearlong contemplation of the doorkeeper he has come to know even the fleas in his fur collar, he begs the fleas to help him and to change the doorkeeper's mind. At length his eyesight begins to fail, and he does not know whether the world is darker or whether his eyes are only deceiving him. Yet in his darkness he is now aware of a radiance that streams inextinguishably from the gateway of the Law.

Now he has not very long to live. Before he dies, all his experiences in these long years gather themselves in his head to one point, a question he has not yet asked the doorkeeper. He waves him nearer since he can no longer raise his stiffening body. The doorkeeper has to bend low toward him, for the difference in height between them has altered much to the man's disadvantage. "What do you want to know now?" asks the doorkeeper; "you are insatiable." "Everyone strives to reach the Law," says the man, "so how does it happen that for all these many years no one but myself has ever begged for admittance?" The doorkeeper recognizes the man has reached his end, and, to let his failing senses catch the words, roars in his ear: "No one else could ever be admitted here, since this gate was made only for you. I am now going to shut it."

Be As King

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you." -
Quote from Matthew 7:7-11
In today's news, a headline reads: 'Thousands in Sierra Leone are violating Ebola quarantine to find food".
Ever since the first Ebola victim was announced, disturbing images have unfolded due to ignorance. The thought of people being shut away and starving, when they need nutrition from real food (not medicine or vaccines) to help strengthen their immune system, is sickening. Based on my knowledge and research, I find many claims of this Ebola virus crisis to be untrue. A major source of my understanding of how viruses work, came from Chiropractor John Bergman who makes time to research and teach the public about health. I find him easy to understand and I appreciate that he backs up what he says by providing the source of his information. When we ask questions, we get answers. What are the efforts we place in finding out true and accurate information that help our well being? Dr. John Bergman explains how viruses work (e.g.West Nile Virus)...

You sneeze on a person. For the virus to grow in her, does it need her DNA? 
It does, because it is not alive, it doesn't reproduce. 
So if she were to pass it on, to another, will it grow in them? OR does it need their DNA to reproduce? 
So does that mean that each successive passing changes that virus structure? (Because it's using that hosts DNA. )
So does that mean that if this is true, that viruses are a parasite, that it would be impossible to make a vaccine because everybody's host DNA is different?

When asked if viruses are alive, Immunologist Fabio Romerio of the instate of Human Virology said, "It's not a living organism. It's simply a well organized molecular parasite."

'They have never isolated a virus, which means they have never identified it. No evidence exists that a virus called West Nile exists. The West Nile virus has never been isolated. They cannot know that 1500 people were infected with the virus, it has never been identified. A virus lacks the ability to replicate on it's own. A virus needs help of a host cell's duplicating equipment, borrowing enzymes and other molecules to concoct more virus. It's not the fungus or virus that causes disease, it's the weakened immune system.' - John Bergman
