Your elevated calling

In Uncategorized on September 26, 2012 at 5:34 am

How we communicate with each other is as important as what we communicate. Without the commonality of understanding we may dwell in isolated units, unable to be heard and limiting our ability to be of any assistance to another.  When we recognize our disconnection we can repair the dysfunction.  We can allow new openness and persist in attempts to communicate.  As we evolve, the inner impulse to compassionately recognize life emerges from deep within us and a quiet reunion of separated selves is effected.  We can encourage this reunion by diligent self-observation and practice in finding commonalities.
We are invited to view this week’s links with an effort at finding commonalities.  We begin with communications across cultural and age division as offered in this RSA animate: Six approaches to time.  In this link the viewer is invited to understand that our cultural conditioning in past, present, and future orientation can cause misunderstanding and division.  A conscious effort to orient one’s self to receive another’s communication allows the divisions to dissolve.  Graham Hancock features in this video discussion of time.  Here, he offers a different interpretation of archaeological record, stating that civilization may certainly be as old as 15 000 years, as evidenced in Mayan ruins and remains: re-thinking our collective history. and this shorter Hancock link asserts a similar understanding.  Whatever our educational experience in history, it is important to remain open to new ideas. A pointed review of cultural bias is offered in Washington’s blog.  Have a look at these photographs, and see if you can determine in which European city they were all taken: Guess which city.  Recognize how others have been influential in promoting the division of humanity, and ask yourself to what end these efforts are made.
Let’s examine our communication with children.  Watch this heart-warming link on childish creativity: Caine’s arcade where the overwhelming response of viewers is easily understood.  Next, we are offered another compassionate review of education in this short video link: how we do or don’t engage our children.  In this link we are invited to reflect upon the origin for the effort to drug-test kids in grade six.  May we all find a desire to value and cherish one another, no matter what age or state of evolution we encounter each other.
This last link is offered simply because it’s beautiful to watch: Northern Lights.

Love … It surrounds every being and extends slowly to embrace all that shall be.  Kahlil Gibran

How to Radiate Power

In chemtrails, debt, inspiration, power on September 19, 2012 at 10:26 pm

As we absorb information from one another, let us be aware of our ability to radiate powerful energy.  With laser-like precision, we can dissolve ego-based manipulations and falseness and send powerful impulses of attractive energy.  Each of us knows, intuitively, when we are in the presence of non-truth.  We can sharpen our abilities with practice, and by allowing our own self-deceptions to clear.  How do we release self-deception and cloudy insight?  We must practice forgiveness in all things.  We spoke previously about how a relationship will shift when an insult or injury is greeted by warm and forgiving tolerance.  Equally, our own sharpness in perception will improve when we forgive ourselves for attempting self-deception.
When the impulse to justify unloving and ungenerous behaviour arises within us, maybe as a result of believing fearful ‘stories’ of lack, victimization or insult, we can become aware of our desire to disconnect from others.  It is easier to engage in self deception when there is a perceived threat to self. Imagine, however, experiencing what seems to be a threat, and allowing the desire to react to simply pass. The fearful story connects with nothing and its ability to influence behaviour dissolves.  We remain observant; we are released of self-deception.  We experience our great power, capable of radiating impulses of loving kindness.  This power is what will unite humanity as we join our souls in a concentrated impulse of dynamic energy.  Imagine what we can do, together!
Our first link to consider is an example of humanity’s power.  In this link we may reflect on the enormous energy that has been used to control and limit nature’s bounty.  We may also, likewise, reflect on humanity’s spirit to move beyond these limits: guerrilla grafters secretly growing food in the city.  In the following link, we again see the radiant energy of humanity as it finds a new way to honour the righteousness of nature: River granted the rights of a person.  Technological invention can be the result of this expansion of personal power.  Here’s an inspirational video: solar inventions.  Likewise, relationships between adults and children can be released from the bands of manipulative and limiting coercion: the schools our children deserve.
 In a previous message we spoke about the limitations of competition.  Here is an article that asks why it is that we promote the divisive practice of setting one against the other: why do Americans crush each other? If we consider that money is a symbol of our stored energy,  the tendency to withhold money energy from one another in the desire to somehow ‘get ahead’ makes the underlying ‘fear’ message transparent.  This link indicates how our community will fare when musical chairs stops: Canada’s housing bubble about to burst.  The following link suggests the limitations of disconnecting one from the other: selling public assets can plague societies long after.
In closing, here are links from others with keen insights and interesting skills. The first is a site devoted to subversive haiku, and I have chosen the first poem for you to ponder.  This next link is a video on body movement as art. We can be inspired by those who offer leadership in viewing money as energy: sacred economics.  Finally, in this video, we are inspired to be informed factually of the weather manipulation projects in Texas this summer: weather manipulation through cloud seeding.

We carry within us the wonders we seek without us. Sir Thomas Brown

Truth needs no defence

In debt, Money on September 12, 2012 at 3:54 am

The new year for many has begun, and we turn our attention once again to subjects of interest.  For many people, the economy is of concern, mostly because of the effects on personal budgets, but also because there is a desire to understand the world-wide influence of crises.  Let’s begin with this short and simple precis, detailing some basics on the economy.  After reading that, the ‘news’ on the student debt bubble which has begun to burst, will be equally informative: tipping point for student debt. This Canadian infographic on university education is equally instructive: students asked to take a hike.  Are you a renter, or do you rent property to others?  Have you heard of the ‘rentier’ economy?  This useful review of the concept of rentier finance and its destructive grip on our collective resources will inform anyone with a desire to better understand why traditional economic analysis is unequivocally useless: rentier finance.  Crossing over to the world of work, then, where financial return is closely analyzed for economic indications, it will be no surprise to learn that unemployment has significantly affected our society: re-employed at a lower pay.  If these subjects have the air of being manipulative, you may have a good intuition.  Have a read of this: we don’t ‘owe’ trillions, and you don’t ‘owe’ $50 000!.  Lastly, here are another two links speaking plainly on the subject of manipulative economics: stagflation and millionaire politicians, and modern money and public purpose (the latter is a well-respected site but will ask for your email address to allow viewing of video).
All of us concerned with the free flow of information will want to review the following links, especially this: Keshe foundation under US presidential attack.  In situations of information/misinformation/disinformation, this particular website seems to have been flagged by the US government and is worth looking at for this reason alone.  Cross-referenced here, New Paradigm Digest seems equally fascinated by the potential indicated in the latest of Keshe Foundation announcements.  With increasingly active resistance to piplelines in Canada, this reference: action camp offers a timely review.  In addition, 50% of the American population is under attack in much the same manner as women in countries where fundamentalist Islamic principles are in effect: what you need to know about being female in America.  In the interests of a free flow of information, I’m including this 60 Minutes presentation on flavor enhancers, as it will surely engage any person requiring to eat any amount of grocery-store packaged food.  Lastly, if you haven’t already seen it: 9/11 explosive evidence-experts speak out
Let’s end on a curious, collectively engaging couple of subjects.  The end of 2012 is approaching, so let’s see what’s being said on the subject: 2012 rising; and view this delightful dance montage I’ve got soul (but I’m not a soldier!).

Speak from the heart and the truth will be shown.   Jean Paul-Alice
